SO CLOSE TO THE BEACH YOU CAN TASTE THE SALT! WALK TO SHOPPING & THE BEACH!

Hyannis - Hyannisport House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bdrms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8

Somewhere in the world, there’s a place where stress isn’t allowed and peace, serenity and genuine relaxation are the only demands of the day. If you could go there, you would thoroughly enjoy yourself. And when your time there was over, you’d want to stay longer. And when life finally did tear you away, coming back next year...well, it’d be a foregone conclusion.

There are not too many places in the world like this...but this is one of them. It’s luxurious. It’s so close to the beach you can taste the salt.

Welcome to the Salty Shack.

The Salty Shack is a 4 bedroom luxury house located just a short 10 minute walk from world famous Main Street Hyannis (shoppers paradise). Nestled on Sea Street Hyannis just a 5 minute walk to Sea Street Beach and the aquamarine water, the Salty Shack offers some the finest accommodations in Cape Cod for those seeking a vacation of elegance, beaches, shopping and action.

Hyannis is where you want to be! Great restaurants on Main street, the harbour front and beautiful beaches! The salty shack has all the amenities and more! They even have beach chairs! This house offers a fantastic location making it easy to explore cape cod or even just walk to the beach if you don't feel like driving! We will be back! The property manager is so great, I forgot valuable belongings in the house and had them shipped to me in Canada within a day! Cape cod is full of great people!!!

The Salty Shack is a lovely, beautifully kept condominium that is conveniently located in Hyannis, Massachusetts near the center of town and main street. It allowed us to have a comfortable stay with no problems whatsoever. We took day trips to Provincetown, Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard with friends and really enjoyed ourselves.

We would NEVER stay here again!! Absolutely HORRIBLE experience!!

My family and I rented this place for a week, but only stayed two days. It was such a nightmare we decided to head back to rainy Boston instead of spending another minute in the Salty Shack. Things started heading down hill when the property manager sent me the address on the day of our arrival. This property is located in a condominium complex in very close proximity to several other units. It is not the serene, relaxing cape house it is advertised as. In fact, its not even a house, its a condominium. The neighborhood isn't the greatest. The beach you can walk to is great if you like rocks and seaweed.

We were told the property manager would meet us at check-in. He didn't. He emailed us the code to enter. The place was filthy upon our arrival and my wife spent almost two hours cleaning the place before she could relax. Bugs everywhere both dead and alive but more on that later. The instructions for working the sound system were outdated and two of the remotes that the instructions called for were nowhere to be found. I emailed the property manager and later that night he got back to me and said they were no longer necessary. The wifi name and password that are provided never showed up, but luckily an unsecured network was available, even if the signal wasn't very strong. Decks are tiny and covered in moss.

The property is in need of a lot of repairs. Virtually every screen in the place is torn so you can't open the windows due to bugs. The window AC in the living room had no seal at the bottom (bugs coming in) so we filled it with paper towels. The ceiling in the master bath is cracked and peeling, and there is paint chips and peeling in various areas of most of the rooms. Tub is chipped. Bed on the first floor is old, noisy, and uncomfortable and the quilt was full of holes. The iron was missing and after several hours the manager said he would come look for it the next day. He never showed up. The 2nd manager listed said he couldn't help us.

There were so many insects in this place it was ridiculous. There were dead bugs of all shapes and sizes everywhere, but also so many live ones I went out and bought a can of Raid to kill them. The final straw for us was when my daughter woke up Monday morning she had a large beetle type of a bug crawling on her so she flipped. I decided that we didn't have to be subjected to this any more so we packed up and went home.

I have contacted the owner and VRBO but so far both have shown little concern. Never again!
Owner's Response: The customers comments are non representative as to his stay or what happened. He wanted to leave early and the Salty Shack would not refund his money, hence the negative review. In the last year the Salty Shack has replaced the washer/dryer, frig, dishwasher, coffee maker, carpeting on stairs, all bedding in the queen bedrooms, the mattress he was complaining about, heating system, 3 AC units and the kitchen is only a few years old.

The cleaning company has been cleaning the house for 4 years and is fantastic. Termimix sprays the house outside once a month and inside quarterly.

The customer even goes so far as to complain about the beach. Read the other reviews and future reviews after this for a real understanding of what this beautiful house, located 4 minutes from a great beach has to offer.
