Diamond in the rough
I have rented a house every year for the past 6 years so I feel I have a pretty decent idea what to expect and this place was one the best I’ve experienced. It is not a five star hotel and has quirks, but it’s lovely. The cottages are in good shape but are a little dated. Houses in the same area rent for twice as much.
I spoke with the owner and I feel that the property is loved and well cared for, that they really want guests to have a great experience. They were happy to answer any questions I had and were very accommodating.
We shared this rental with another family. We had in total 5 young children and 4 adults. The 2 cottages allowed both families to have their own space which was nice. The property was a good size and private enough. We set up a tent in the large yard and the kids loved sleeping and playing out there. Each cottage had an outdoor shower which was very convenient.
The beach was a very short and safe walk. It is perfect for small children and is as good as any of the inner beaches. When the tide is out there are pools to discover critters. When the water comes back in it’s shallow and warm, great for swimming. Because of limited parking it does not get crowded. We also walked to the Cape Rep Theater for a kids play which was wonderful.
The location is great, a five minute drive to both Orleans and Brewster. Orleans has lot’s to offer: candlepin bowling, bike rentals, mini golf, restaurants. I’m not as familiar with Brewster but we enjoyed the Grist Mill and restaurants.
I will certainly return :)
Thank you so much for the wonderful review Christopher. We have made some improvements and updated photos on the site. We hope you return next year!
Wonderful Classic Cape Experience
A terrific location, quiet, 5 minute walk to the beach. Tide charts are handily posted in the kitchens. Great for families with children.
Thank you Eric. So glad you enjoyed yourself and the property. Will keep in touch.
Beach Stay over July 4th
The location of the cottages was why I rented them. When we walked into the kitchen, the floors were unswept, and there were dirty dishes in the dishwasher. A gallon of milk was left in the refrigerator, along with an opened bag of chips with the pots and pans.
Lighting in the cottages is at a minimum. The outlets are dangerously overloaded. The bathroom in Bayside cottage, had urine down the front of the toilet. I was told that we were the first guests, this season. I felt as if the owners had just been there for the week, but the cottage was not ready for renters.
I have rented other places on the Cape, Linger Longer (Hawks Nest), Condos at Ocean Edge, and many years at a Yellow house on King Phillip, and never experienced such conditions.
I really hate leaving a negative review, but I really expected the place I rented to be cleaner than it was.
Cape Cod is a wonderful vacation area for a family.
I will return to the Cape, but not at the cottages on Partridge Circle.
I'm not sure if we responded to your review. I hope my parents responded to your concerns. I had some major medical issues that week and our cleaner did not show up and I am not sure my mom knew that. Our deepest apologies for your inconvenience! I am just getting back to better health and saw this review. We have made a few improvements to the property, updated photos and if you would take a chance with us next year we could give you a reduced rate. Either way our deepest apologies for your experience.
Overall, the accommodations were very satisfactory.
The larger cabin was very good and accommodated my grand-daughter and her family of five very well. Space was adequate and kitchen was up-to-date. The yard provided plenty of space for the kids to play in.
The smaller house was for my wife and me. Very adequate for us. Kitchen was very small and the bathroom was a little tight but over all it suited us fine. It was especially good that we could be near our kids.
Thank you very much! It is so thoughtful of you to review the property at this time in your life. I am very glad that it worked out well for you ad your family.
Beautiful setting but cottages need improvement
We have always loved the Linnell Landing area and beach, and have now stayed at 4 houses in the area, 3 of them along Partridge Circle, as our extended family enlarges. The owners of this property were attentive and stayed in close contact with us all week. Their property is nicely situated within walking distance from the beach, with a large front yard and plenty of parking. The two cottages, Bayside and the smaller Bayside Too, are quaint and traditional, with great potential, but need updating. The kitchen in the main house is bright, with a breakfast table and fairly new appliances. The sunroom is large, with a dinner table perfect for games with the kids, and plenty of windows - but mainly obscured by huge rhododendrons surrounding the cottages and blocking light. The sunroom has futon-type mattress seats available for sleeping, but it is not a true third bedroom as the website lists. The 2 bedrooms and living room are dark-paneled and we often needed lights even on sunny days. The bathroom has a claw foot tub with shower, workable although most of us preferred the nice outside showers. We knew that there was no A/C, and fans were adequate during our stay; however, this required many extension cords and plugs, a concern with small children. Also, the “wireless internet” listed on the website was misleading and not adequate. We expected WiFi, especially since some of us needed to do part time work and I enjoy reading the Cape Cod Times online - this was unavailable, although we’ve had this at properties just across the road. There was also a problem with the Bayside Too stove, which the owners could not foresee, and they arranged to have it fixed - however they still could not assure that the starter would not spark. With small children, we insisted that the gas be turned off for our stay. To their credit, the owners offered to compensate us for this, which we didn’t expect. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, but feel that the property needs improvement - a modest investment in trimming the rhododendrons, adding WiFi, and perhaps painting some rooms a brighter color would make a great difference.
Thank you for the feedback! We are working on improvements and have changed the listing to 3 bedroooms.
Cute and cozy
We had a great time! Plenty of showers for everyone coming back from the beach, and an efficient kitchen. Just enough space so we weren't all on top of each other! We will definitely book again!
Located within 8 minute walk to Linnell Landing beach on Cape Cod Bay. Bike trail, Nickerson State Park,
golf, whale watching, fishing, lakes, art galleries, shops, great dining.
