Best rental EVER

  • 5 of 5

My husband is a Falmouth native, so we have easily rented over a dozen homes in the area over the past 15 years. This home was easily, hands down the nicest home we have ever rented. Several things made it a wonderful stay over Christmas. The area was deserted in the winter months(like a lot of the Cape), which we love. The views of the water were terrific. The bed rooms were huge, allowing plenty of room for our 12 and 15 year old. The kitchen was stocked with every thing, making it so nice to not have to run out for a squirt of mustard or a dash of hot sauce. She had everything needed for a lobster dinner for 6, plenty of fire wood and a tons of family games. The home felt very private and like a family home and not a rental. The master bed was incredibly comfortable, easily the the best we have found in any other home we rented. Towels and linens were quality, as well. The lovely home owners were there to greet us and welcome our family into their family home. I cant say enough about this property! We will clearly come back!! Thanks some much Myra and Richard for sharing your home!!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely comments Klea. We are so happy you and your family enjoyed Christmas at our house, and we are looking forward to welcoming you all back the next time you return to Falmouth. Happy New Year! Myra & Richard

A very special time

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this beautiful house during our daughter’s wedding week. We have a vacation home in West Falmouth, but let other family members use that house during the wedding week and we decided to find someplace special to stay while we celebrated our daughter’s wedding. Did we ever find someplace special! The house is spacious and bright with lots of windows that let the sea breezes in. We spent many days on the decks and watched the lovely sunsets nightly from the deck and from the private beach just a very short walk away. The house is well stocked with staples and any other items you may need during your stay. The house is beautifully decorated with Myra’s lovely art works hanging on many of the walls.

Myra and Richard met us upon our arrival and were very gracious hosts. I cannot say enough good things about the house and our visit there. A very special time in our lives was made even more special by our stay in this lovely home.

Incredible Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed in this house and had such a wonderful time. Upon arrival, Myra and Richard graciously greeted us and helped answer our questions.

Our days were spent playing with our sons in the beautiful yard, surrounded by the gardens that clearly have been meticulously cared for. We also spent a good deal of time at the private beach, just a short walk away. The water was calm and surprisingly warm. The house is spacious and comfortable, and the views from the upper deck are breathtaking - especially during sunset. Even though we didn't venture out much to eat with our three young children, it was truly a pleasure to cook in the well-stocked kitchen and spend lots of family time in this beautiful home. We absolutely loved it and would come back every year. Thanks for Richard and Myra for sharing this special place with the world!

A Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This review will not do this home or our experience justice. I'll begin by highlighting what a pleasure it was to deal with Myra (property owner) to secure the property and organize our vacation - A simpler more pleasant process could not have been had.

We have rented many times in Falmouth and often spend the first few days running out to the store and getting ready to enjoy the last four days of our vacation. Our experience here was completely different. The home is well stocked and cared for - we didn't want for anything. Myra and her husband are so detail oriented that you will continually be surprised by how above and beyond they have gone to make you feel at home. The book collection is incredibly diverse and everyone should be able to find some summer reading.

The deck is very large and is complemented by tremendous ocean views which carry with them the breezes off buzzard's bay. The private beach is a short walk away and is a beautiful place for an afternoon swim as well as snorkeling. Down the road a few minutes (We mostly drove there but I also ran and biked with no issue) is Woodneck beach. This beach is the most perfect location for children. It consists of a white sandy beach adjacent to a large tidal marsh. The children (mine are 2 and 5) can ride their boogie boards into the marsh or out to the ocean from the marsh with the tides. The water is very warm (considerably warmer than any other beach in the area) and my children were able to spend 5-6 hours at the beach and mostly in the water with no blue lips! We also spent time exploring the marsh with some nets and caught some small crab and sardines - great fun for the family.

The shining sea bike path is a short ride away - keep in mind the path has many more entry points than the map shows and many can be found a few minutes from the home. Riding down to woods hole with our kids (in a bike trailer, we brought one but they can be rented) buying some lunch and capping it off with some ice cream before heading back home was a blast.

The best part of our day though was returning to what truly felt like "our home." The gardens are beautiful and something about them just made my children want to run around. The bedrooms are well furnished and artfully decorated. The shed is well stocked - beach chairs, beach toys, beach umbrellas + more.

In short, I was left wanting for nothing and I feel I received tremendous value in return for my money. Can't wait to return to Gunning Point.

Owner's Response: And as wonderful as your experience was, Luis & Samantha, ours was equally so. You are the most thoughtful, considerate and lovely guests and having you stay in our home was a total pleasure. You have a beautiful family and I hope we get to welcome you all back to Gunning Point sometime soon. Warmest wishes and many thanks, Myra & Richard

This home was absolutely beautiful, very well-appointed, and the owner's fantastic original artwork throughout was icing on the already grand cake. My family of five (including three children under the age of 5) wanted for nothing and could not have had a better time.

The owner, Myra, was a pleasure to work with and was very responsive to all questions. Renting this home was smooth-sailing from beginning to end. It doesn't get better than this!

Gem of Falmouth!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our children, just celebrated our 40th Wedding Anniversary in this beautiful home in West Falmouth, MA.

The pictures on this site can not begin to describe the "WOW" factor when you approach this home, drive up the circular driveway and enter the foyer. It is unbelievable and quite an impressive sight!

Myra, the owner, is a gifted artist, and not only is it shown in her artwork, which is beautifully displayed throughout her home, but also, her artistic qualities are felt everywhere inside and outside this wonderful property. Even though I never got the chance to meet Myra, she was very attentive throughout the whole rental process. She seems like such a wonderful person and will do everything, I mean everything, to make your stay as memorable as possible.

When you rent this home be prepared to have a fantastic vacation, rain or shine. Although our weather wasn't the greatest, we enjoyed ourselves here so much it really didn't matter! Three bedrooms and three full bathrooms are almost impossible to find in a rental place, couple that with a beautiful view, a porch that is the heart of the home, along with everything you could imagine in a well stocked kitchen. The entire second floor is just unbelievable! The whole house is bright, spacious and begs for a family get tother!

This home also comes with a beautiful landscaped yard. What a joy it is to wake up each morning to stroll through the beautiful gardens.

Another plus is that the Falmouth, Woods Hole area is full of fun things to do, along with fabulous restaurants, unique shops, fantastic beaches and so much more!

Everything about this home is perfect and I don't think you could find a more beautiful place to spend your Cap Cod vacation.
