Classic Cape style home located in peaceful and private setting just a 5minute walk to beaches. Amenities include outdoor shower, large deck with sun furniture and gas grill. Stones throw from bike path, beaches, walking trails. 10 minute drive to many restaurants and shops. This is a perfect get-away home for rest, relaxation and fun. Enjoy beautiful sunsets at First Encounter Beach.
Home History: This house was built by my parents in 1978 right down the street from a little cottage we rented when I was growing up. My two children spent their summers in this house enjoying all that the lower cape has to offer. In 2005 my husband and I purchased the home from my parents as it was getting to be too much work for them in their retirement years. We finished 2 large upstairs bedrooms and continued to enjoy our leisure time there. In 2007, my son graduated from high school, was accepted to many colleges that offered scholarships but chose the most prestigious school which did not offer any aide! HELP!
Instead of selling our family home,we have chosen to rent the house to well screened guests in hopes that it will bring you all the fun and relaxation we've enjoyed there.
2012 update: now my daughter is at UMiami without aide but we will continue to rent the house even when she graduates because we have met such wonderful people on this journey. Thank you to all our guests who have taken such good care of our home. Xoxo
FYI-2008: Everything was really wonderful and comfortable. We gloved the house and what a great location. The biking and walking is fantastic around there from the beaches to the neighborhoods, to the trails at Wiley Park. Thanks to your wonderful house and to your hospitality, we had a great time, thank you!
would love to rent the house again if you're going to offer it next year. Thanks again Lisa and David! PS, the television/HD was great..
the place was great and fully stocked regarding cooking utensils etc. Am thinking about renting for two weeks next year.
We had a great time- thank you. The beach was perfect for the kids and we enjoyed the biking too. My Dad is recovering from pneumonia so he enjoyed sitting out on the deck. I think other families should enjoy the house as much as we did as it's very comfortable and a great location. I hope you keep renting as we'd love to come back sometime.
FYI - 2009: Lisa-
Thanks so much, we had a fabulous time at your house. I still can't believe how many of the little things you had there for people to use as they needed. Thanks again...are you going to be renting as long as your son is at BC?! In other words, we can come back for another two years for sure?! Thanks again and have a great summer...

Golf: Hi Lisa,
Just wanted to let you know that we had an outstanding time on our vacation last week. Your house was fantastic and exceeded our expectations. There seemed to be nothing that we could possibly want that was not already there.
Thank you again for all of your advice about the area. Mornings we spent at First Encounter while after naptime the second smaller beach was such a memorable way to end the day. Our families had a truly fantatic time, the only hard part was having to leave.
Thank you for your great hospitality,
