Amazing Vacation in an absolutely beautiful home

  • 5 of 5
My family had a fantastic vacation in Cape Cod staying at this wonderful home in Barnstable! My family included my four young children (ages 18 months to 8 years old) my husband, my mom, my sister, and my aunt. We were in awe of the beautiful house which had every wonderful amenity you could ask for...awesome appliances, very tastefully decorated and painted, super CLEAN, central A/C - and my kids favorite - the outdoor shower! There was plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen/dining area opens onto a wonderful and flat backyard. The house is surrounded by hydrangea's (my favorite.) The street is very quiet and flat so my kids could ride their bikes easily and the short walk to the beach was a perfect distance for us. The beach was absolutely wonderful and perfect for my kids. They enjoyed the different experiences of high tide vs. low tide. There were tons of crabs for them to find and study:) The gentle waves in the shallow water allowed for rest and relaxation for my husband and I knowing the kids were safe. Everyone we met at the beach and on the street were super friendly.

We enjoyed walking over the the Oysterville outdoor cafe and having lunch and ice cream. My husband and I enjoyed an amazing dinner at the Old Yarmouth Inn which is a few miles away - and the next evening my mom and aunt went there also and enjoyed a great dinner with the early bird pre-fixe. The Dolphin Restaurant which was highly rated as a local joint was pricey and not as good as we would have hoped.

I would highly recommend this home and the area for families with younger children! We hope to be back in 2014.

Wonderful home and location!!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed for 9 over the off season. The house was absolutely perfect and the area is gorgeous. The house is so open and bright and had every amenity we needed to make ourselves at home. We loved watching the all of the birds and other small wildlife out the windows. The town nearby is so cute and was very convenient for a quick grocery trip, the library, and the post office.
Todd was very responsive and helpful from reserving our stay to any minor questions we had while we were there. We had such a wonderful stay and only wish we didn't have to leave. I recommend this house to anyone looking for a fun or relaxing stay on the cape. The house and location are perfect. We toured the cape extensively and both feel that we couldn't have asked for a better place to have rented.
Thank you again Todd for sharing your home with us.

Almost, but not quite...

  • 3 of 5
We stayed at this house for our first trip to The Cape and didnt know what to expect. The owner was very helpful when booking the house and provided lots of information. However, when we got there the cleaning folks were still there doing laundry so we had to wait to get in. THe house is very nice but it was not as clean as it should be when paying a cleaning fee, including cob webs on the lights and sand on the floor. The house is very nice and the bedrooms are great. We also experienced the problem with the smoke alarms, but the owner did address the issue quickly. We wished there was a gas grill as the description provided and that the backyard was as big as it appeared. The house are very close together. THe beach is a short walk which is great but the beach didnt meet our expectations. It was very very narrow and it is only good at low tide. Also, you have to walk down a rock path and cross over some uneven rocks. We had to pack up and pay to go to another beach. There wasnt even a "landlord" beach pass. Parking on the street gets tricky as this house is on the corner. THe neighborhood is great, very quiet. But the town, Barnstable, leaves something to be desired. We had to drive to do anything really. And we all know about Cape traffic! The market down the street is great though!
I dont know that I would reccommend this property. It really depends what you are looking for. We will be going back to the Cape next year, but we will not be staying at this house. There wasnt much space for the kids to play and I wasnt happy with the cleanliness of the house. And when I tried to address with the owner, I never heard back.

Owner's Response: Hard to please this person.

The previous week's guest left the house a mess and the cleaning crew tried to get things finished but she would not let the cleaning crew finish - then wants to complain about it (the crew has only a 4-hour turn time). Then she complains a beach pass that she could have bought for a few dollars (and I can not buy for her because the license plates will not match). Then complains that the pictures made it "look bigger". Then complains about the walk to the beach - which is a great beach. And then rips the entire town of Barnstable.

I guess you get all types renting from you. Take this one with a grain of salt - or should I say, from the "salty" one.

Multi-family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time as a family vacationing on Cape Cod. The Barnstable house was ideal. Size wise it provided enough room for all, the small private beach at the bottom of the street was perfect. No need to pack up the car to go to the beach!

We enjoyed walking into Barnstable Village as well as the marina at Mattakeese. This was a perfect vacation. Hope to return next year.

Nice clean property, great location.

  • 4 of 5
Our family stayed at this property the week on 7/16 2011. We had 4 adults and 3 kids and the house suited our needs perfectly. The house is fairly close to the beach and there is plenty of beach and sand gear located in the shed. When you go to the beach just be aware of the tides. There were ton of supplies and games at the property, and clear instructions were left on how to operate things and what items you were responsible to replenish. The neighborhood I very quiet and relaxing.

The only issues we had were the fire alarms repeatedly went off but the owner addressed that, and the faucet in the bathroom broke, again the owner addressed that as well.

Overall I highly recommend renting from this owner. Great property.
