About The Owner

Nick & Joyce Rouy - avid travelers and sailing enthusiasts.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004

Why The Owner chose West Yarmouth

We love the beach! Cape Cod is a great place spring, summer, fall and winter! With a pond front home you have swimming, boating, fishing and ice skating all right outside your door.

What makes this apartment unique

Comfortable private deck, is the perfect place to lounge and relax - day and night. You can enjoy the views, cook up a meal, enjoy the nature or good book and be cooled by the breeze. The pond is clean and quiet, lots of wildlife to watch or fish to catch. Paddling around the pond in the canoe is relaxing and fun. Hop in the car and you can be at Bayberry Golf Course or one of the famous Cape Cod bike trails in less than 2 minutes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

thanks very much for a lovely 2 week stay at the Bird House. Feeding the birds and canoeing were the best...

Average at Best

  • 2 of 5
This is an average rental at best for this price point. It should be more like $400 or $500/week. Do not rent this place unless you really need something, for the following reasons:
The "house" is a basement apartment so it is very dark. You will always need to turn the lights on indoors during the day in the kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and living room – basically the entire place. The floors are cement and there is not a lot of ventilation. There are no windows in the bathroom, and despite an air dehumidifier placed in the bathroom, it never aired out well. We were asked not to open the bedroom windows either, which was awful because there was a musty smell in the bedroom and the fresh air would have really helped.
There is no coffee table. There is no laundry.
The dining room table is a cheap, rickety small table that extends to seat 4.
You can hear a lot of noise from the upstairs apt when they are walking around and it’s pretty loud - enough to wake up a light sleeper.
The dishwasher takes 2 hours and is very loud – do not run it right before you go to bed, it will keep you up.
The outdoor grill is broken so you need to light it manually to get it to work.
The owners were late in responding to requests for life vests, questions about the broken grill, etc.
A few good points:
Good central location to golfing, supermarkets and local small beaches.
The bathroom was recently remodeled, which was one nice thing.
Kitchen had enough pots and pans and dishes to self-cater.
Pond is nice but very small.
The outdoor deck is actually very nice, but there is not a lot of space in-between houses (you are in open view of the other house decks around you) so you never really feel like it’s very private.
The owner was fine but did not really make the effort to be very welcoming, warm or polite. I felt like she is someone who "deals" with the pain of renting out a unit for the money but would prefer not to.
Obviously I am not coming back here.

Not the same as before.

  • 3 of 5
The pond is lovely; canoe is still available; apartment is clean and adequately supplied; the owners are nice. However the downstairs unit now renting is not the sunny, bright space that the upper unit evidently was. The living room is dark with light somewhat blocked by the deck overhanging from above and it has a darkly painted cement floor. Neither the small kitchen nor the bathroom has a window, therefore no natural light. However, the bedroom is brighter with natural light. But be aware: you can hear every single footstep from above both day and night made by both humans and animals (2 cats). I was unable to sleep at all the first night. The owners did make adjustments to improve the noise level thereafter, but there is no insulation between floors and the upper floors apparently are not carpeted. I left a day early to go home and get some nighttime quiet and uninterrupted sleep. I'm surprised the owners did not credit me even a little to make up for that terrible first night.

Owner's Response: This person is correct, it is not the same upstairs unit - it is the downstairs unit. The description of the apartment including the pictures (interior and exterior) are of the actual unit. They are accurate and show exactly what each room looks like - including the bathroom and kitchen as well as the flooring throughout. I do clearly state to all interested parties that it is a downstairs apartment and that my husband and I reside in the upstairs unit. If you are extremely sensitive to noise (as this renter was) this may not be the place for you. For the record, there is, of course, insulation between the floors and well as rugs throughout.

Loved the layout of the house!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent 4 nights here with my son and his girlfriend. The layout allowed ample privacy for both couples. The house was immaculate, modern, and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Beds were very comfortable, showers were great, and kitchen fully loaded. The private office allowed some unexpected work to get done without interference. It was a perfect central location to access all the Cape has to offer. We appreciated that Joyce allowed a late checkout so laundry could be done before heading to Logan Airport. We would definitely go back and highly recommend it to 2 couples looking to spend time together.

A brilliant location from which to explore Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5
This house accommodation is exceptional in all aspects and I would highly recommend staying here. Staying in the upstair accommodation only, would perfectly suit two couples vacationing together. The kitchen is modern with good quality appliances, the lounge/dining area is spacious and comfortable with a homely feel and features a top quality entertainment surround sound system. There are two good sized bedrooms, one with french doors opening on to the large veranda with en-suite with bath and seperate shower. The second bedroom has a bathroom next door with over bath shower. The outdoor space of this property is without doubt the best feature of many good features. The veranda can be accessed via any of four sets of french doors which runs the entire length of the property. Out door dine in style while watching the multitude of wildlife at tree top height whilst feeling part of the environment nestled in the woods with views of the lake.
