My husband and I have owned our custom home since it was built in 1982.

We personally ensure that our home is well maintained and properly prepared to our standards prior to each rental.

Kathleen Geezil purchased this house in 1982

Our location is unique. The salt marsh view is very tranquil. We enjoy being there any season of the year. Foliage of the salt marsh changes throughout the year. We enjoy watching the ducks, blue heron, and other wildlife on the marsh. We have seen sea turtles and night owls. We enjoy just being there and breathing the clean and refreshing salt air.

The layout of the home provides separate areas which often accommodates various age groups. The large lot provides a private setting with unique view. The open living room and dining area opening onto the expansive deck provide a comfortable area for relaxation or entertaining. Older folks have commented on the benefit of negotiating few steps from the driveway to the main living area, to the bedrooms, to the deck. Active age groups have commented on the benefit of the spacious separate lower area for activities, Ping-Pong, second TV viewing area.

GREAT CHATHAM RENTAL

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a nice Cape vacation, this house has it all. Quiet cul-de-sac in a great location that is walkable to beaches (though we drove) and a short drive to town. The house was immaculate and had all the things we needed for our Cape Cod getaway. The view from the back deck was gorgeous overlooking the salt marsh - very serene and quiet - a great place to have our meals. We had fun playing ping pong in the basement and we slept great in the very comfy beds. The kitchen is well-appointed and had everything we needed for our obligatory lobster feast! The owners were very easy to work with. We would definitely rent this beautiful home again. Highly recommended.

PERFECT, RELAXING WITH ALL THE COMFORTS OF HOME

  • 5 of 5
My family of three had the most perfect stay here last summer. The home is in great condition. All the rooms are very clean. The owners have everything one could need, all the kitchen tools needed for the chef in me. The bedrooms are all a great size and very comfortable.
The basement space was great for our young son to run around. Love that its on a culdesac as our son played in the front a lot in the mornings. The home is so close to the beach, some days we walked and others we drove. This is the perfect beach for families with small kids. We absolutely love this area. The home made our trip that much more enjoyable. We've already booked our stay here for this summer and cannot wait!

PERFECT CHATHAM GETAWAY!

  • 5 of 5
We recently got back from a weeks stay at this property and a wonderful vacation. My wife said it was one of the best vacations she has ever had and I agree. Very relaxing and peaceful.
Right from the beginning the property exceeded our expectations. The grounds are very well maintained and private. The deck and view (off the deck) is definitely one of the best feaures of the house. It is spacious and has a gate so if you have little ones you don't need to worry about the stairs. Our 1 1/2 yr old could roam freely on the deck with no worries. An added bonus was the ducks in the creek/marsh that kept her occupied and amused always pointng and looking for them.

The inside of the house was very clean and had everything you could possible need. From the stuff we brought down and what the owners had there, never once did we say "we wish we had this or that" They even had lobster pots and the nessesary tools for a lobster. We didn't use the basement game area but it would be perfect for older children.

We walked to and from the beach everyday. Sometimes even twice a day. I thought it was going to be longer so after the first walk we were both in agreement it wasn't a bad walk at all. Actually nice and leasurely. We enjoyed walking. We had a stroller so we were able to tuck stuff underneath. If you have lots of stuff, it maybe wise to drive down and drop everything off beforehand. The one time I did drive down, the attendent at the beach was really nice and let us drive past the gate house to drop everything off as close as possible to the beach.

We were very satisfied with the whole experience and we would without question rent this Chatham house again!

VERY NICE HOME

  • 5 of 5
We stayed there in August 2010. This is a very nice, well cared for and well-stocked home. We enjoyed the location and walked to Ridgevale Beach every day. The owners were easy to work with and we'd consider staying there again.

HAPPY RENTING EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
We found the house very relaxing and well equipped. There is nice finished basement that has bumper pool, ping pong, and games. It's a nice way for kids to do something different. There's a nice deck and view. The beach is very close. We drove but its quick and easy. The house was clean and not cluttered. We would rent this house again.
