Nice but Small
Very Clean, Nicely equipped place had a yard with a small patio. Owner was attentive not pushy. Drawbacks were a Very Small Cramped Bathroom & Old Uncomfortable Mattresses.
Thank you Charles for your feedback. The bathroom is small and we make note of this in our description as well as having a picture of the bathroom in the listing.
Sorry that you you missed it.
The beds are actually fairly new, but it is difficult to find one type of mattress that will please everyone.
Week on the Cape
House served us well. Not far from the beach and attractions.
Thank you, it was a pleasure hosting you, please return anytime it suits your schedule.

Great location in center of Cape
Hibiscus House was just as described. User Manual was extraordinary, with extensive information on all Cape activity. Three air conditioners were sufficient to deal with heat wave.
Idyllic property in perfect location.
Idyllic property in a perfect location; short walk to the beach, centre of the Cape and a 2 min stroll to the bagel shop. Also the garden is arranged for relaxation and interesting visits form the local wildlife.
Fall Get Away at Hibiscus Beach
This charming home is perfect for a fall get away. October is an excellent time to visit the Cape and we had perfect weather. Hibiscus Beach House is a short walk from the beach, where our dog exhausted himself retrieving his tennis ball from the water. Dogs are allowed on most beaches on the Cape after Labor Day. At the other end of the street is a cranberry bog and we bought plenty of FRESH berries back for the holidays. There is an excellent fish store just a short drive away and with a grill in the backyard we made some excellent meals. There are also wonderful restaurants in the area especially 4 Seasons, a new one. The backyard at Hibiscus Beach home is very comfortable and you can enjoy all the birds at the feeder. We even saw a red bellied woodpecker there one morning. Our favorite beaches were Nauset in Orleans, Coastal Island in Wellsfleet and Race Point up in P'town. We saw a large group of seals very near the shore at Race Point. P'town is very dog friendly and has many great restaurants as well. Hibiscus House is centrally located so it was easy to head out for the day and visit many places.
Although we never met Jean, Bob is great and very helpful with all the info provided at the house, dog beaches, restaurants, bikes, whale watching. Something for everyone here. If you've never visited the Cape in the fall you might want to give it a try, no crowds either.
We definitely recommend Hibiscus House and look forward to returning next October.
Thank you Mary. We appreciate the feedback
from our guests point of view. Thank you for the
compliment-sorry you did not get to meet Jean-
she is responsible for most of the charm.
The cranberry harvest is always in October, and
this is the first year that we have seen them
being sold retail out front to the public.
It fascinating to watch the harvest, but even
better when you get to take some home.
We would love to have you stay with us again.

OK, but the owner is very nit-picky
The place is pretty good overall. Beds are comfortable, there is cable TV, Internet, air conditioners and washer/dryer, which are all big pluses. The bathroom needs towel hooks. Owners provide a lot of games, books and they even have a website with directions to nearby attractions. But the house was a bit dusty when we arrived and there were not enough cleaning supplies to leave it in the same "perfect condition" that the owner expects. Bring your own floor mop, vacuum cleaner and cleaning supplies, because the owner will charge you extra cleaning fee for the spills on the kitchen floor.
Here is an example of the things that the owner picked on in the end and charged us extra clelaning fee:
- dirty dishes left in the sink (I left one dish, because we were rushed out)
- spills over most of the stove area. I remember wiping the stove...
- failure to wipe up spills on the kitchen floors (there was no mop in the house)
- chewed gum left on the table and nightstand
- the dryer lint filter was full
- the grille was not cleaned after final use
- a wine glass was broken and spilled wine was left on the floor. Again, there was no mop, but I cleaned the floor as much as I could with paper towels.
- the dresser door had to be repaired (that door must have already been broken, because the dresser was really old).
- burnt teapot. The teapot had a broken whistle, so my husband didn't hear it.
Alltogether the "damage" came to over 100 dollars.
Last year we rented from a different guy, who didn't have cable TV and washer/dryer, but he was very nice and didn't charge us any money for the broken table lamp, not to mention the small nit-picky stuff like chewing gum.
We sincerely appreciate our valued guests. Regrettably, we had to keep part of the security deposit in this case. This is the first time in 11 years. - Bob and Jean
We are located in the Mid-Cape, 24 miles from the bridges to the west, and 70 miles from Provincetown to the east. We are near 8 Yarmouth beaches including the main beach - Seagull 2.7 miles away. Colonial Acres Beach near us is 900 feet long and is on the protected waters of Lewis Bay/ Hyannis harbor. The advantage
of the Mid-Cape is that all parts of the Cape are just a day trip away.
