About the property

This immaculate Cape Cod home has it all: spacious rooms that are tastefully decorated, lots of natural light, a large outdoor shower and a great location. Two large bedrooms upstairs and one bedroom on the main floor can easily accommodate one or two families (there's a daybed in the TV room as well). The huge, fenced-in back yard is great for kids or to play a game of croquet. The deck off of the dining room is perfect for outdoor entertaining or having a cup of coffee while reading the paper from the West Falmouth Market, a quaint general store nearby. Parking for the Shining Sea Bikeway is three minutes away, and two beaches are very close by (Chapoquoit Beach is a four-minute drive, and Old Silver Beach is seven minutes away). Main Street Falmouth with tons of restaurant options and adorable shops is a seven-minute drive, and parking for the Steamship Authority boat to Martha's Vineyard is only five minutes away (making a day trip very easy). Cable TV, wireless internet, Xbox One and air conditioning add to the amenities of this inviting home.

About Marisa Carr

Marisa and Rich live in northern New Jersey, but Rich grew up in Lakeville, MA (about 30 minutes off-Cape) and spent his childhood vacationing on Cape Cod. We bought our dream vacation home in Falmouth toward the end of 2015 and have spent the past few years furnishing it and enjoying it. We hope you will love it as much as we do!

Beautiful house, good location, watch out for owner rules.

  • 4 of 5

There are a number of kids bikes (we didn't need these) and a couple of adult ones. House is nicely laid out and would be great or one or two families traveling together. A bit of a distance to food, but no big deal -- very quiet neighborhood more than makes up for this.

Beds are comfortable, house is clean, area is beautiful and not far from Boston.

Be careful with owner rules -- owner requires you to wash and dry towels and bedding on your final day before leaving, so this can take up 1/2 of day on your final day (which is a big deal if you have an early flight out of Boston).

A couple of additional notes:

-- there are a couple of xboxes, but no way to play due to guest login not being connected to any games. Not a big deal.

-- there's an Amazon Echo in the main room to listen to music, which is nice.

-- good internet

-- nice recommendations on what to do and where to eat from the hosts.

Great house and location

  • 4 of 5

Just spent a long weekend at this house for our annual girlfriends reunion and we had a great time. House is roomy and comfortable and the owners are very nice to work with. They could use some more kitchen utensils and appliances but other than that, no issues. We’d highly recommend this rental!

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

The charming décor and great amenities made this house a wonderful spot for our family of 5. There is tons of space to spread out and relax. Our children loved playing on the lawn while we sat on the covered deck. The house is in a perfect jumping-off location for so many activities. We biked, hiked, checked out several beaches, took the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard, shopped and just generally explored Falmouth and Woods Hole. We will definitely return!

House was in great location.

House is very hot. Air conditioning is not adequate especially upstairs. House is very dated.

Owner's Response: We are sorry to hear that you found the air conditioning not cool enough. We have never had any complaints and wonder if you needed to simply turn it to a cooler setting. The home is from the 1950s, complete with all the charm and character of that period. We are sorry you didn't love it the way we do.

Amazing Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying at this West Falmouth house! There was plenty of space for 6 girls to spread out and relax! It was in a great location- a short walk to the bike path, and a short drive to downtown, beaches, and Woods Hole! Our favorite aspects of the house were the covered comfortable patio, outdoor shower, air conditioned bedrooms, and the grill!!! We appreciated the use of a cooler, beach chairs, and beach towels. We look forward to staying here again in the future!
