Beautiful Big House charm

  • 4 of 5

This was a warm and lovely home with plenty of space for 12 family members. We had a family reunion with all different ages and interests. This home was perfect for dinners, deck reading and gatherings, bike walks, pond sunsets, row boat rides early mornings and sunset cocktails. It had a basketball hoop, swings and games to keep different ages of kids busy. The ocean, bay, restaurants and local attractions were all a quick drive.

The owners were delightful, easy to work with and did an amazing job with the decor and comfort of their home.

We were surprised when we drove up that is was located directly on route 6, but never noticed the traffic. The main living quarters and backyard haven was were it was at!

Highly recommend this property.

Comfortable house for large group.

  • 4 of 5

Perfect for a large intergenerational family. Plenty of space for all and the kids enjoyed all of the outdoor space for riding scooters,etc. The lake was fun too when you were tired of the ocean. Convenient to National Seashore.

Outstanding House in Eastham

  • 5 of 5

This is the best house at the best price anywhere in the area. We have a large family, so the six bedrooms, 1 1/2 baths and outside shower are absolutely necessary. The house is well kept and appointed. The rooms are spacious and bright. Lots of parking. The Wi-Fi, large outside porch and playground are bonuses. It's just around the corner from Coast Guard beach. We have been going there for 8 years. I couldn't recommend it more highly.

A great vacation experience

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect place for family vacations and big enough to include grandma and grandpa. This place has lots of bedrooms and lots of open dining space including everything you need for cooking in. Bedding was very comfortable and we especially enjoyed private bathroom off th master bedroom. The deck was very large - ideal for cooking out and enjoying the summer weather.

Convenient location close to beaches and some of our favorite eating spots in Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet. Arnold's and Pizza Barn were both big hits for kids. There lots for kids to do at the house- games, badminton etc. All in all a great vacation experience

Big House at Nauset Haven

  • 5 of 5

The Big House was a wonderful vacation rental. The house description was spot on and there was a lot of space for all 10 of us. We dined outside almost every day doing big family dinners that we easily served on the large outside table. The grill and the side burner allowed for ample space to grill seafood and boil large pots or pan fry. Despite being right on US 6, the inside of the house is very quiet. It's location was near the Coast Guard Beach as well as others so choices could be made easily. It's close to shopping and the fish markets as well as many restaurants. Also not too far to P-town. The biggest hit for the entire family was the outside shower!!! We used it almost exclusively, seldom using the indoor facilities. Our daughter who lives in South Florida made a note that when she looks for a house, it has to have one or at least space for one to be put in !! Lauren & John are excellent hosts and we recommend the Big House !!
