FALMOUTH VILLAGE - WALK TO BEACH & TOWN - PERFECT FOR TWO FAMILIES!

Falmouth House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This property is a 3-minute walk to Ben & Bill's and The Black Dog, right in the center of Falmouth Village! Walk to Surf Drive Beach just 1/2 mile away. Connect with the Shining Sea Bikeway 3/4 mile from the house on our two mountain bikes.

A new French bakery, four Zagat-rated restaurants (plus many other eateries), a pub, a wine shop, and a fish market are all within an easy 1/2 mile walk. Falmouth Main Street comprises 30 boutiques including books and toy stores, bakeries and candy, coffee and tea shops, day spas, art galleries, jewelry, clothing and furnishings, and of course gifts and souvenirs. Peg Noonan Park, in front of the public library, is the setting for a variety of events throughout the year as well as a farmer's market in the summer. A mile further down Rt 28 are the Super Stop & Shop, a gourmet grocery, pizza delivery, and other shopping (Christmas Tree Shop, Pier 1, Walmart, etc). If you wish to visit Martha's Vineyard, both Falmouth Harbor and the Woods Hole shuttle are about one mile from the house.

This home is a 1930's Dutch Colonial with hardwood floors throughout and is furnished in Cape Cod style with a collection of nautical artwork by area artists. It features a large, well-equipped kitchen with everything you need for your clambake or lobster boil; a formal dining room with table for 8; a comfy 12'x22' living room with decorative fireplace; plus a cozy sun room/playroom with white wicker furniture, facing South towards the sun and the sea breeze. Enjoy the afternoon sun from the 300 sf deck. There is a propane grill (with extra tank so you don't run out) and a table with 6 chairs, however seating is virtually unlimited with two long built-in benches.

All 4 bedrooms are on the second floor and share a full bath with tub and shower. There is another bath with shower downstairs, as well as the outdoor shower with hot and cold water. The bed configuration is perfect for two families:

Fabulous Falmouth Home

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 4 arrived from the UK to what is now "our second home" in Cape Cod!. We have children aged 19 and 16. From our early enquiries about the house and area, Chris responded quickly and provided us with a wealth of very helpful information. By the end of our holiday, we felt as though the owners were friends and they were kindly letting us stay in their home! The house is spacious, clean and very comfortable and has more than enough crockery for a very large party. Anything that we needed, Chris was very quick to respond to.
Falmouth is a beautiful town with loads going on. Great restaurants and a fab place to just wander. The beach at the end of the road is lovely. We went most days and it was always quiet (lifeguards were always there), with the beach bar providing good snacks. We however took Chris's advice about the wonderful french bakery, and picked up sandwiches from there to take to beach.
We would return in a heartbeat and would have no hesitation about staying with Chris and his family again!

Wonderful vacation home for extended family

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I, our 2 toddlers, and their grandparents has a wonderful, fun, and relaxing time at this house. Our kids loved the toys in the house, the outdoor/beach toys in the garage, and most of all the outdoor shower. The full cable TV and baby equipment (pack 'n play etc) were nice bonuses. As parents, we loved the space for us all to spread out, the grill, and window air conditioning units in each bedroom to keep us sound asleep in the heat. The grandparents loved walking to the beach and the ice cream shop with the kids. The grandmother raved about the lovely dishware and the lavender and hydrangea plants in the front yard. We all loved walking to the toy store, many restaurants, and the library.

The house was lovely, very nicely decorated, and comfortable for 4 adults and 2 kids to relax. We think 2 families could also fit nicely, especially if some kids could share rooms. The kitchen had a great base of tools and dishes for us to cook at home. It was extra nice to have bath tissues and clothing detergent already in the house. We had minor questions for the owner over the week, and he always responded immediately.

Loved it and our week in Falmouth!

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5
What a place! It took about 1.5 hours to drive down from greater Boston Saturday afternoon on major highways (a welcome respite from the major Cape traffic you'll find going farther down around Orleans/Chatham area).

Any drive is bound to leave you hungry, so it was great walking through the front door to see the owner's meticulously researched "catalog" on restaurants, pubs, shops, etc. and myriad assortment of delivery and take-out menus sitting in the dining room. A quick unpacking in the spacious upstairs bedrooms and we were off walking to one of the local Italian eateries recommended by the owner. A five minute walk later we were seated and scanning menus, and around check time a quick namedrop earned a round of complimentary digestivos :)

The next morning it was a ten minute walk to the pebbly beach. The water's cold, but New England blood is thicker than water so swimming is a must. And if you're not the swimming type, a brisk walk or bikeride along the adjacent trail is scenic and pleasant.

After a draining day outdoors, the house is splendidly equipped for laziness and sloth. With an excellent booknook full of salty seafaring books and picturesque Kennedy bios, readers can sit on the quaint wicker chairs or sprawl across one of the comfy couches (make sure to call fives- nothing worse than returning from the shelf to find a rogue usurper!). If its a beautiful day (when isn't it on the Cape?) then mosey on back to the deck and pull open the umbrella for some sun and fresh air. If reading is not your thing, they've got every Bahstan-tinged movie to come out since Good Will Hunting, and TV is equipped with cable.

All and all, an excellent and SPACIOUS choice to get away, close enough to the beach to smell the surf and close enough to town to enjoy a slice of quaint, local goodness.

Great vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
I'm hesitant to let anyone know how fabulous this house is for fear it will always be booked when we want to rent again! Me, my husband and my twin boys (1.5) enjoyed every second in this house. It was the perfect size and it had everything we needed- not only inside but outside as well. The rooms were large, beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for my very active boys to run around. The sun room is a great area for people and dog watching- and for keeping the toys contained! The best part of our day was coming home from the beach and hopping in the outdoor shower. We all loved it. The location is perfect as well. Main Street is a 5 min walk, if that. And the beach on the other end of the street is a 10 min walk. I really can't say enough about the house itself- clean, spacious and it has everything you need. The owners, Chris and Annie, are beyond wonderful. They answered all the questions we had prior to vacation and while we were there. They are very nice, responsive, responsible owners and it was a relief to us that if we did need to reach them, they would respond. I would recommend obtaining a beach pass for the time you are there- that way you can visit all of the beaches Falmouth has to offer. We spent our whole 2 weeks at Stoney Beach in Woods Hole- wonderful for small kids.

We can not wait until next summer!

Exceptional Property in Fabulous Location with Wonderful Owners

  • 5 of 5
Our family of four stayed at this lovely home in Falmouth for a week in August. Prior to our arrival, the owners were very helpful providing insights about both the home and the area. Their pride of ownership was evident and they were a pleasure to work with. We have rented many beach homes over the years and would rate this at the top. The deck with gas grill came in handy for several dinners and s'mores. The beds were very comfortable and the home was as clean as any we have rented. The décor was charming and new. We would highly recommend this property to friends, relatives and anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax on Cape Cod.

Great House for Families. Well equipped and very conveniant to beach and town.

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay the week of the fourth of July. Ages ranged from 17 to 82 and all had a wonderful week. My brother actually rented the house across the street for the same week where the rest of the family stayed. Our house ended up being the cook-out headquarters because it has a large deck and yard. Also, having a dining room, a living room and a sun room helped with hanging time at night. We did half the puzzles, played croquet, rode bikes (except the 82 year old) and ate lots of lobster. The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean. And thank goodness for the air conditioning in the bedrooms.
