Electronic Gadgets Details: Our newest gadget is SOLAR POWER. This system interoperates with the electric utility to provide reliable continuous power 24/7 while generating clean pollution free power on sunny days. All of the power consumed by the home in the summer is generated by the system over the course of the year with no pollution. Enjoy your guilt free vacation!

Our WIFI and cable TV is Comcast digital service. The WIFI is open access not encrypted and free for you to use. There are 2 WIFI zones for our home. One serves upstairs and the other serves downstairs.

The TV is 'expanded service' about 100 channels and no pay per view.

Our phone is Nettalk and is free for calls to the US and Canada. To call Europe, Mexico etc you can use your calling card or purchase calling credits in blocks of $10 from me. We recommend that you use your cell phone so people can call you back after you depart our home.

Our media library is provided through a ROKU player on the den TV. In addition to the free channels, you can rent movies instantly on the player via your own netflix account.

Summertime on the Cape is high season for bugs especially ants so you must have a control strategy in place. Don't feed ants! If there is food available to them, they will come. Tips are listed in the kitchen cabinet above the sink. Be aware that it is really not possible to go without a strategy on the Cape even if you don't need it where you live in the city.

Pet Friendly Details: We welcome pets with a security deposit of $500 instead of our usual security deposit of $250. This is in case your pet behaves differently and does damage in our strange unfamiliar home than in your own home. It is not intended to discourage anyone from bringing their pet.

Our area has a leash law similar to many cities and towns. Poop must be picked up when walking (and also kept cleaned up in our yard). Dogs are to be leashed. No dogs allowed on our beach or any public beaches.

Summertime on the Cape is high season for fleas and ticks so you must have a control strategy in place. Be aware that it is really not possible to go without a strategy on the Cape even if you don't need it where you live in the city. After a week or 2 on the Cape without protection you may not think you have any fleas or ticks, but after another week or so both you and I have a good chance to be infested.

The outside shower is a great place to give a dog a bath with the hand wand.

Baby Friendly Details: We have a high chair, baby swing, sandbox, a few toys, pack and play, baby monitor, gate, to help lighten the load of gear when traveling with a baby. You can rent a crib, stroller, linen service, linen or towel service and many other items from Auntie Vi at www.auntievis.com

The house is not 'baby proof' or 'child proof' and the laundry room contains the heating and hot water systems. So be advised on not letting children roam free unsupervised.

Guestbook comments from the owner
With alot of family visiting, my parents home was too small to accomodate everybody. And 2 small dogs were also a factor. This home was perfect, large and comfortable. It quickly became the gathering place. Those renting hotel rooms were really jealous.

GREAT HOUSE FOR A CAPE COD HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great week's holiday in Cape Cod and this house was the perfect base. It is a large, comfortable house with lots of books, games and things for the kids to do. We enjoyed the garden and the massive gas barbecue. The house is in a lovely tree-lined street a short walk from the sea. It is close to all the things you need - restaurants etc and a decent supermarket is not far away either. We went whale watching which we'd definitely recommend. The Daily Paper on Main Street was our favourite breakfast spot. Pain D'Avignon is worth finding too.
We didn't meet Tom but texted him any questions that we had and he always replied quickly which was great.
We would recommend this house to anyone wanting a relaxed house with a lovely vibe. Cheers Tom.

GREAT, LARGE HOUSE FOR FAMILY AND DOG!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great 3 night stay during April school break. Tom was wonderfully accommodating of our short notice trip plans and very responsive to any questions we had. The house is quite large and very comfortable in a great neighborhood for the kids to ride their bikes and scooters down to the waterfront area. Convenient to all the shops and restaurants on Main St. in Hyannis. Lovely yard for the kids and dog to play.

Owner's Response: I hope you all can return in the future when the weather is warm. That little beach also has a full beach on the ocean side, very private and shallow enough for kids to play. And a big sand bar that is fun to walk on. Let me know, I am happy to help you.

ONE WORD.. WOW!

  • 5 of 5
Title says it all... The only bad thing I could say would be the bad weather for the first part of the week, but that is something Tom could not control!

We arrived after a long drive on Saturday Night, and found the house in a perfect condition. There was even some coffee and cookies waiting for us!

On the next morning, we did have some questions about the area and Tom helped us right away!

This place is perfect for the family, as everything is less than 10 minutes from the house. You can walk to Craigville beach or even the little private beach for the résidents.

Definetely a place to come back for our next vacations! Thank you Tom!
