Best Vacation Property Ever!!!

I just LOVE this place! I searched and searched to find just the perfect location, perfect house, at a reasonable price - and this house fits the bill in every respect. The pictures on this website don't do the house justice. From the moment you pull into the parking spots and walk up the front stairs, you immediately get that "Cape" feel..... sea grass, beach plums adorn both the front and back yards. You enter the front door and all you see is the ocean out the back sliders. I have a picture of it as the screen saver on my phone and look at it every day. I can almost feel the cool ocean breezes and the peacefulness of the place and I long for the next August when I'll be back there again.
The house itself is very typical "Cape Cod" with pine walls, updated kitchen and baths and an absolutely huge upstairs master bed & bath, window seats and a deck that spans the whole length of the house. It's where everyone in the house congregates for morning coffee/breakfast, for drinks at sunset or to just get away from it all and relax with a good book. There's also a deck off the living room with patio table, chairs, loungers, gas grill.... all surrounded by a nice sandy area in case you don't feel like walking down to the beach. Although I was surprised to see A/C units in this house, we've never once turned them on and I always rent one of the last two weeks in August -- really hot out, but cool ocean breezes blow through the house always.
The house has always been spotlessly clean upon arrival -- and my occupation is a Housekeeping Director - that says a lot about this place! I always have family and friends visiting while I'm there and we've found the living area, that has 3 sofas and a dining table & chairs, more than sufficient for everyone. Extremely comfortable. The best oceanfront place ever. If you go to the beach, it only takes a minute to be back in the house to use the bathroom, get food/drinks, put kids down for naps, etc. And, if you don't feel like going to the beach, the sandy back yard makes you feel like you're at the beach and the yard is very private as it sets back further from the road than the two houses on either side of it.
And, finally, the owner is extremely responsive and professional. I'd be hard pressed to ever look for a different rental home on the Cape for any reason.
