We enjoyed our time at the Cape in this charming cottage, it was a chapter out of my childhood, when I visited the Cape with my family. We had two teenagers with us, they enjoyed the bikes and close proximity to the beach. My husband and I loved the patio and hammock. Bedrooms are small but cozy!We did alot of touring but did rent a boat from the boatyard across the street and jetskis in West Dennis!Loved the ease of watching the firewooks in Hyannis, easy in and out! Thanks!!
We had a wonderful time in your cottage and your hospitality and servicemindedness enhaced the experience a lot. We borrowed bicycles from you, you bought an umbrella and a brand new big barbecue that we used most evenings. The cottage had a very good and central location on the Cape and made is easy to discover all different places and beaches, it was not to far to drive anywhere. Good grocery stores close by. The beds were very comfortable and the layout of the house worked very well for us, two adults and two teenagers. Our kids appreciated the TV and the Internet. We could have needed a washingmachine but you solved our problem without a blinc. The cottage was very clean, maybe a little bit smaller than we expected but it worked very well for four people. The only thing to complain about was the mosquitos at night, but on the other hand it was nice to be located next to a small forest - it is difficult to get it all! Quiet surroundings, close to the river and close to a nice beach that you can bike to and avoid the parkingfees. We found this cottage to be good value for money. Thank you for having us and Cape Cod was a really nice experience!
Hi from the Swedish family.
This was our first visit to Cape Cod and it won't be our last. The property was clean and comfortable and was exactly as desribed on the VRBO web site. Conveniently located to all of the major Cape Cod attractions this rental was a real find. The owner was very helpful, providing excellent tips for dining, shopping, and recreation. The property is well maintained and because its an original Cape Cod cottage you get a real sense of the architectural history of the Cape. Looking forward to a return visit.
What an enchanting stay. We had a wonderful time in your lovely cottage and the amenities and setting was perfect for our vacation. Thank you so much for your greast hospitality. I'd recommend your cottage anytime. Best wishes, Gordon.
We enjoyed this quiet escape and good value ... a great base to explore Cape. House on one of the prettiest, historic streets on Cape Cod. Hope to return again soon ... much still to do/discover.
