Wash your clothes in the basement laundry room and dry them in the fresh air with the provided laundry line.

About Vacasa, MA - Cape Cod Office

Thanks for considering a Vacasa home! We provide full-service management for privately owned vacation homes, and like to think that we offer our guests the best of both worlds: the unique experience of staying in a one-of-a-kind vacation home, with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that the home you book for your special vacation is cared for by professional housekeepers and property managers.



Vacasa began in 2009, simply because our founder and CEO Eric wanted to find a better way to share his wife’s family’s summer home in Long Beach, Washington with guests as a vacation rental. Eric and his early team worked to build Vacasa on the premise that local employees can do what they love most (taking care of guests, homeowners, and properties), while the hands-off tasks of vacation rental management—things like marketing, filing taxes, and maintaining a website—could be handled by a specialized central support team.



Our passion is connecting travelers with the unique experience of staying in a vacation home, and we would be honored to be your host. Please contact us with any questions about this home—our team is standing by!

Awesome weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed out here for our wedding weekend. We wanted a cute, quaint place to stay that was close to the beach and our family and friends, and this place delivered. All three bedrooms were a nice size, though we only used one, and the kitchen had everything we needed. There was a ton of natural light (which our photographer appreciated!) and more than enough space to entertain the wedding guests who popped in and out all weekend.

The quaint house in Dennis

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family attending a wedding on the Cape. It was in close proximity to everything. Just a short walk to beautiful Mayflower Beach. Very comfortable home with all of the necessities. The house was immaculately clean and tidy. We highly recommend this adorable house for anyone staying in Dennis who likes privacy.

Nice home

Nice home in a good location.

Family Getaway in Dennis

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Dennis. The Bayview beach and neighborhood were extraordinary. The central location allowed us to take several day trips to other areas of the cape. The house was roomy and quite. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you.

Amazing memories were made here!

  • 5 of 5

Nice comfortable house. Great deck to hang with friends and family. Yard was perfect for corn hole. Lovely short walk to the beach. Close to all that Dennis has to offer. Could not have asked for more.
