Best summer vacation rental ever

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family from ages 12-84 (11 of us at the height, with room for more) stayed at this amazing house for a week and were over the moon about its estate-like qualities. The house is secluded at the top of a dirt road. The owners provided extraordinary amenities, comforts, resources and customer service. They seem to have every game ever made over the decades, even poker chips, several monopoly sets, balls galore, boogie boards. They responded instantly to any little question we had. Because the house is unusually spacious and privately laid out, none of us were ever in each other's way. The interior is gleamingly modern and sparkling clean, the sleeping arrangements outstanding. (We took extra showers just to use the marvelous water jets!) We all "lived" out on the largest, most perfect deck any of us had ever seen, and went around to the smaller back deck for sunset-watching each evening, overlooking acres and acres of breathtaking nature we never knew existed in Wellfleet even though we've been to the town over fifty years. This place is a gem.

the home is everything described...and 100x more

  • 5 of 5

the home presents as the ultimate vacation getaway, easily accommodating our family of 13. whether celebrating meals inside or out, the spaces were immense, the built-ins luxurious. expansive indoor spaces were contrasted to equally expansive outdoor children's play areas including a soccer field a bb court. the home sits within easy walking distance to the bay and miles of shoreline. simply unforgettable and worth every cent.

Pollenesia Paradise

  • 5 of 5

An absolute GEM of a house and weekend for our daughter's wedding activities. Having never been to The Cape, we were somewhat concerned about finding a place where family and friends could stay and play together. Ann and Mark (owners) have put together the PERFECT spot in Wellfleet to serve as the hub of a large family/friends gathering. Very spacious both inside and out, room for the whole gang to do any number of family, soccer, ping pong, sand box, cookouts, solitude for reading/relaxing and just enjoying the serenity of The Cape. Thank you Mark and Ann for the wonderful memories we created at your house.

The only drawback was the incredible amount of Pollen happening this year on The Cape. Of course, nothing the owners could do anything about, but, why I titled the review as I did.

This home was just AWESOME. We needed a home for our family to stay in because our daughter was getting married in Wellfleet. We had three children six and under and ten adults. This house was just so clean and well appointed with everything and anything we needed. It felt like you were at home. From the outdoor sports equipment and sand box for the children to the lovely herb and flower garden. Inside the kitchen had everything you could want for cooking and serving and there were three different sitting areas in the home so everyone was able to relax and not feel crowded. We spent a lot of time in the kitchen/dinning area and the children played in the hall way where there were benches filled with toys and games for the children. This kept the children very busy and within an eyes watch while the adults could visit. The bedrooms and bathrooms were also all very nice and comfortable. It truly was a family friendly home and though we did not go to the beach it was very close and convenient to the home. Wellfleet is also just a neat town. I fell in love with it and cannot wait till we can come back again.

Our week-end was "Magical" and many beautiful memories were made as our daughter was married to a wonderful man. Everything about the weekend was just perfect and this home was certainly a part of it. We will always remember the lovely home we shared as a family the week-end our daughter was married.

I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking to rent a home for a group who wants a clean, comfortable home away from home.

exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

The description on this site, which is very detailed and wonderfully written doesn't do this property justice. It is magnificent. From the gardens, the lawn space, the views, the spacious home and the close walk to the beach, this house provided our family and friends exactly what we needed and more. We traveled with 9 children under the age of 5 and this property was super kid friendly. From the large sand box, the endless number of toys and the athletic equipment, our kids were all entertained, which made for relaxing adult time. Powers Landing beach, at the end of the driveway, was perfect during low tide. The kids walked out on the sandbar and collected sea shells, crabs and snails. We even watched fishermen get their daily oysters and little neck clams. The town had cute restaurants and ice-cream shops that we stopped in if we weren't cooking at home. We made a large feast nightly and even had a traditional lobster bake. The house is stocked with all things necessary, including a shucking knife for our fresh Wellfleet oysters. The owners of the home are very friendly and easily accessible if you need them. I would recommend this home to anyone and have already sent the link out to many close friends. I plan to vacation in Wellfleet again, only if this house is available! This house did not disappoint!

Perfect Family Reunion Rental

  • 5 of 5

Myself, my three siblings, and all our families spent a delightful week at this rental. I would highly recommend it, and in fact we hope to all return in 2016. The owners were available from our first inquiry to answer any questions I had. I felt they were merely a phone call away during our stay should we have needed anything. The house was large enough to accommodate us all very comfortably. The house was as described and pictured in the online information. It is well appointed, beautifully designed, and very clean. The kitchen was exceedingly well stocked with all the dishware and cooking equipment we required. The herbs in the garden were a nice surprise for our amateur chefs. We had decided in advance to eat out a couple of dinners but mostly we took turns preparing big meals for us all to enjoy the evenings "home" together. Everyone - age 14 to 64 -had plenty of room to relax on a deck, play soccer or ping pong, watch TV, play cards, etc. The many bedrooms were well spaced within the house so everyone had privacy and felt they had their own space.

The overall location was very convenient, we could walk to town for the farmers market, the fabulous little grocery market, the bakery or gift shopping. We rented bikes for our week long stay and used the bikes also to go to town as well as to area beaches. There are several town beaches as well as the National Seashore so we enjoyed those, even getting a fire permit for a beach fire one night! One morning all the cousins got up early to go watch a lovely sunrise at the beach.

In all we were thrilled to be able to stay in just a lovely place and the accommodations contributed to our relaxation and enjoyment of being together at the Cape!
