About Molly

I grew up on Cape Cod and after 12 years of travelling the globe (renting houses in other places) I have moved back to the loveliest place on earth. I live in the house during the winter and rent it out in the high season. I often host dinner parties at the large table and can assure you the kitchen is fully equipped.

Molly purchased this house in 2014

Why Molly chose Cape Cod

I purchased this home because it is close to many ameneties I hold dear to my heart. It's 5 minutes from Craigville Beach where I love to make the 3 mile round trip walk down Long Beach to the "conch tree". The private, dirt road location is quiet enough for my family, but an easy bike ride for treats at Four Seas Ice Cream or delicious cocktails the Chart Room at Crosby Marina. But most weekends, we follow a day of playing in the waves with and outdoor shower and then grill fresh seafood and veggies to accompanies our cold beers on the new deck.

What makes this house unique

Two houses down the road is a path that leads to a private neighborhood dock on Bumps River. It's the perfect place to watch the sunset with a glass of wine.

Nearby freshwater ponds offer great places to cool down after a early morning jog.

Guestbook comments from the owner

A perfect rental for a bachelorette party – plenty of space so 9 girls didn’t feel cramped or have to wait to use the bathroom. The house was professionally cleaned and very private. We all fit around the long dining room table for group meals. One night we just had salads and pizza delivered from Pinocchio Pizza (yum!) and another night we had a meal catered. The kitchen had everything we needed to make and serve big breakfasts. And the gift basket of gourmet coffees from the owner helped make waking up easy. The 3 ring binder of area information would have been more helpful if we stayed during the summer. It was early May and some places weren't quite in full swing yet. Like the snack shack on Craigville wasn’t open yet. But we did go to the beach and there was a parking pass, although the beaches don’t require passes until after Memorial Day. We are in our 40s, so the group was more about relaxing and exploring the Cape rather than drinking/partying. We took a day trip to Provincetown and also walked on Sandy Neck Beach. Cocktails at sunset on the neighborhood dock were a highlight. It’s a dead end road and so quiet for sleeping. Beds were comfortable and all the towels and sheets were brand new! A very relaxing stay.

Best rental ever. My family of 6 adults and 5 children were extremely happy and found more than they expected .The furnishings, grounds and amenities and plenty of space for all was a pleasant surprise and accurately described in the listing.The location was perfect with easy access to beaches and amusements. Molly graciously sent a list of area attractions and was easily accessible when we had a question.Thanks for a wonderful vacation!

My family and I have been vacationing at the cape for about 40 years. Molly's house was wonderful! Clean and quiet. Great outdoor shower and deck. Close to craigville beach and four seas ice cream. We ran to the beach one morning! Even has pool table in basement. My kids loved that! Thanks Molly!

Lovely decor, real Cape feel

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 8 travelling from Ireland and France and the house worked really well for our first time week on the Cape. Very spacious, well kept, lovely decor. Private quiet area, easy drive of beautiful Craigsville Beach. Beach pass for the car and beach chairs were perfect. Outdoor shower, deck and barbq were put to good use as weather was fab. Wifi & pool table great. With sat nav - everything so easy, Hyannis, Sandwich, Brewster, Chatham lighthouse ... Beautiful area, great beaches. Got to go whale watching off Barnstable ... incredible. Fitted in some retail at the Cape Cod Mall. Recommend Crisp in Osterville for food. Great holiday lovely property.

Spacious, Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This house comfortably slept 4 adults and 4 kids. It is a short drive to the beach. Had everything we needed for our Cape Cod vacation: beach pass, outdoor shower, grill, wifi, hairdryer and delicious local coffee!

House was very clean, smoke free and well maintained. Would stay again.

Great home base for our family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Your home perfectly met our needs. The private setting made our family vacation spectacular. We loved walking around the Skunknett Wildlife Preserve, which was right down the road. We went fishing on a charter boat out of East Dennis and enjoyed grilling up our day's catch for dinner. When we found Joshua's Pond, we felt like we hit the jackpot -- it was perfect for us and our little ones! We also recommend everyone have the Afternoon Tea at Borsari Gallery in Dennis; and the clam chowder at Captain Parker's Pub in West Yarmouth is as good - no as GREAT - as they say! This home provided a great base for us to explore Cape Cod and retire to comfortably each evening. Thank you so much -- we will definitely be back!
