WHAT A WAY TO SPEND JULY 4TH AT THE CAPE!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a wonderful time here in Barnstable!
The 4th of July parade went right by the house so we all had front row seats!
We loved walking to the Barnstable Market, Smitty's for ice cream and the harbor at the end of Millway for a gorgeous sunset, delicious seafood to cook back in the great kitchen, and a fun restaurant to watch the sunset while dining out.
The house accommodated my husband and myself, our daughter and son-in-law and 2 children and son and new daughter-in-law.
The hot tub was good and the outdoor shower the best after the beach.
The owner was great-answered all our questions-and we all loved this rental.

A GREAT TIME IN A GREAT HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
This house was a perfect fit for our family! We had plenty of room for the 8 adults and 3 kids/babies and we all enjoyed the hot tub at night when they were asleep! The house is also located at a perfect spot: the market is 5 minutes walk away and the beach is also easily walkable (though we had to go drop a few things by car since we were carrying a lot because of the kids...). Also, we happened to be there on the 4th of July so we could just watch the parade on the porch which was really nice! :)

WONDERFUL VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We were immensely happy with our experience in Barnstable and with our experience of this beautiful and comfortable old house. We loved how nice it was to just run to the market down the street for things we had forgotten or run out of. And we all enjoyed the hot tub especially at night after the kids had gone to bed.

Millway Beach was an absolutely great experience at high tide and low and during all the depths between. It was wonderful, like having two different beaches in one. We had been a little concerned that it would present an expanse of mud flats at low tide but we found, as the owner had assured us, that it wasn’t so. It was rather a great sandy area for walking, wading, and discovering all the variety of its shellfish. The short walk from the house to the beach from the house was all on sidewalks that made it safe for pedestrians.

We were with our daughters and their families. Our grandkids ranged from 11 to 2 years old. There were, as would be expected with an old house (or with a lot of newer ones, for that matter) some minor inconveniences created by the need to accommodate so large a family. With one couple in the middle bedroom on the second floor and the 2 year-old sleeping in a crib in the “birthing room” the bathroom on that floor was effectively blocked of from the and the only other way to get to that bathroom from the Master Bedroom unless one went down the front stairs to the first floor and back up the other set of stairs. But that was a minor inconvenience. The outdoor shower was of course wonderful as well, the kitchen was well equipped and comfortable, and the dining room table opened up to accommodate us at dinnertime even when there were eleven of us gathered around it.

The fact that the house had central air was a blessing – especially for sleeping (we were there during a very hot and humid week.) And once the humidity broke we were able to enjoy the great backyard. There was some occasional traffic noise from Rte. 6a (Main St.) on the south side of the house but that was hardly a real problem or detraction from the pleasures of great house in a great location.

GREAT WEDDING WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this home to be on the Cape for my son's wedding. This beautiful home provided a warm, comfortable setting for everything from an intimate dinner for the bridal party to outstanding wedding pictures in the lovely landscaped yard. The home was a great place for our family, now living in 4 different states to relax and enjoy our weekend together. The property is very well-maintained and provides all the comforts of home. I look forward to returning to Barnstable when I have more time to explore the area, visit the beaches, and try the local cuisine.

CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK

Can't wait to go back
  • 5 of 5
We recently rented your house to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary with our two children and their families... nine in all. We hadn't rented a vacation home before and were uneasy about making a committment site unseen. Once inside the house our fears diappeared. What a beautiful home! Your description online was very accurate. It was clean and comfortable and Barnstable is a lovely location. Our three grandchildren (3,6 and 7) loved exploring every nook and cranny and the adults did their fair share of checking out the details of this beautiful home. There was plenty of room to find a quiet place to read, play board games or watch TV. We ate most of our meals at the large kitchen table. The kitchen was clean, had working appliances and was well equipped. We took full advantage of the close proximity to the harbor, the beach, and the many local restaurants. We went on the whale watch (The Hyannis Whale Watch gives you a wonderful view of Sandy Neck and we saw tons of whales), several trips to Osterville Too and our final dinner at the Barnstable Tavern was a perfect way to end our week. I's be remiss if I didn't say that a trip to Smittys for ice cream was almost a nightly trek! The corner the house sits on is busy but the fence along the back created a boundary for the children and they were content to play in the yard and not venture out. As we were packing up we kept saying how we hated to go, it was like leaving a good friend. We all agreed this house more than met our needs and our experience was very positive. We would definitely rent this house again. It was a relaxing vacation. Many thanks!

THANKSGIVING 2010

  • 5 of 5
Talk about getting lucky!!!! I live in California, one of my sisters lives in Florida and my other sister lives in Plymouth, however she could not make it down to see the house before we arrived, so this was a total sight-unseen rental. We arrived and we were so over whelmed with pleasure. The weather was absolutely amazing for November on the Cape, but that was not the lucky part! The lucky part was this home it is AMAZING!!!! We had our old fashion Thaksgiving. Lots of room for games, great family room with fireplace, flat screen tv for watching the Macy's parade, wonderful, fully equipted kitchen. Hot tub for after dinner relaxing. It was one of the BEST vacations we ever had!!!!! We walked around the village and to the beach. This home is your typical Cape Cod home!!! It has so much character, to much to put in towords. A must see to believe! The owner was so wonderful to work with. We hope to do it again next year. Thank so much for a wonderful vacation!!!!!!!!! Great for small and large families.

Map

Car: not necessary

This home is Old Cape Cod to perfection. You’ll get the best of both worlds~ Beach and quaint Cape Village. Relax the days away on the beach (walk home for lunch)! Walk down to Barnstable Harbor to pick up the legendary Whale Watch Tours or grab some amazingly fresh seafood for dinner. Antiquing, window shopping and discovering local flavor in one of the many restaurants is waiting for you in the village. Or.. spend hours playing at the children's park lovingly named 'The Hollow' across the street. The Village of Barnstable is located on the north side of the cape, centered along 'Old Kings Highway', route 6A, the home to many historic landmarks including Sturgis Library, The Olde Colonial Courthouse, The Barnstable Comedy Club, and the Trayser Museum. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Hyannis, you are but a 5 minute drive to the Cape Cod Mall and downtown. This house is truly the best of both worlds!
