ENDLESS AMOUNT OF PROBLEMS

  • 1 of 5
Upon arrival to the house there was garbage all over the driveway and we called Bob but he didn't answer and has yet to get back to us. We soon realized that neither of the refrigerators or freezers were working so the food we brought was not being refrigerated and when I emailed the owner he responded saying someone else had rented it yet we were the ones who rented it and I told him that and there was no reply. There was also no hot water throughout the house and most of the light bulbs were out. The upstairs bathroom sink was leaking into the kitchen. The outdoor shower was not working, pool was brown, hot tub was not filled, fire pit was broken, yet everything was advertised as working. Luckily we were still able to have a good time but the house was nothing but problems.

WEDDING WEEKEND REUNION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
This house was AWESOME! We stayed here following our wedding for a weekend reunion with friends and family.

From day one, Bob was accommodating to all of our requests and easy to work with, plus super responsive!

The house itself is more than spacious enough for all of our guests. It was clean when we arrived and all the amenities we needed were in place. The home also has two washers and dryers, which was nice, especially considering the pool and hot tub led to some wet clothing! The backyard and deck were the perfect touch with the nice weather, we spent almost all of our time outside!

Overall, the stay was wonderful, especially considering the price. There was so much privacy and space, it felt like we were in our own little world. Perfect reunion spot, and again, Bob was awesome! We look forward to another stay here in the future

RUSTIC HOUSE IN THE WOODS

  • 4 of 5
I read the previous reviews and based on these, pets allowed , location and the price I did not expect the Ritz. It is not "hotel clean" but if you want a family friendly spread out place this is great. There were plenty of covered outside areas and a huge yard for running around. The pool and jacuzzi were nice extra. I have found that most places on the Cape with walk out basement too musty for me. This was the case here but not as bad as some more expensive rentals. Maybe a bigger or two dehumidifiers would help. I also wonder if previous renters had emptied the dehumidifier as asked. The house has some maintenance needed, sliding door, mattress in main bedroom, carpeting to basement but we were there at the end of the season renters so I can't blame Bob. He was the most welcoming homeowner so far. He was a great renter who sent a preview package about the Cape and was there to greet us on arrival. The kids enjoyed feeding the fish....we had to set up a schedule since they all wanted to do it. They also enjoyed putting food out for the cat.

I read about the place being dirty but other than the carpet to the basement, it was as clean as other houses on the Cape. Bob was very flexible about the arrival and departure. If we had arrived early we could change and head to the beach. He also let me know via cell phone what time it would be ready. He is very accommodating.

This is our third year renting on the Cape and each house has some pros and cons. For the money, this place is a great value and I would rent it again.

I would rent this place again. It is a work in progress but the bathrooms, kitchen and living areas very clean enough for most families.

I UNDERSTAND WHY IT'S CALLED THE BIG HOUSE!

I understand why it's called the big house!
  • 5 of 5
This review is a year late as I'm generally pretty bad at putting reviews up but this place was so much fun I've decided to give it a go.

We stayed at this place in the spring, the cape is dead but it means empty roads and no traffic. We played a lot of poker and pool which was perfect for a weekend with the guys. Bruins were playing in the playoffs as well which allowed us to use the massive tv in the living room.

The place really does sleep 18 or so.I think there was a room or two we didn't even go in because it's so big. If you have a family/big group don't worry about being on top of each other as you can go from one end of the house to another and not hear a soul.

Other favorites of ours:
Fire pits!
Hot tub!
Hammocks!
Fish Tank!

I would go back in a heart beat. This property was the first place that came to mind for future cape adventures.

WE CALL IT "THE BIG HOUSE"

The Big House is awesome.

Awesome location. You probably want to drive or ride the bikes provided to most of the beachy/tourist stuff, but so much the better for being in a nice secluded spot in the woods! Secret Tip: it's also a nice, short stroll from a beautiful old historic church that we visited to on our morning walk.

Awesome owner. Laid back, charming and up for anything. Just ask and he can probably accommodate!

Awesome jacuzzi.

Awesome pool. We came in October so we mostly used the jacuzzi which was perfect (and part of the reason we chose this house), but the pool was so inviting that we swam in it as well. (Then right back into the toasty warm house afterwards.)

Awesome spot for college friends. We rented this house and filled it to the max with old college buddies. It was the perfect large, fun-loving, group house. We had BBQ on the back deck at night and made pancakes in the morning.

The Big House. It's big. It was perfect for us. It would be great for large, no fuss families as well. It's a Cape Cod vacation house extravaganza. Not for people who only want super fancy surroundings or a "spa-like" atmosphere. While everything is clean and cozy and totally accommodating - this place is geared towards active, adventurous folks who want be playing games, running around and exploring Cape Cod!
