Meticulously restored antique Cape in charming Pond Village Historic District. Parking for two cars. Walk to beach, post office, little market, cafe, library, restaurant two churches, and bus stop to catch shuttle bus to Provincetown every 20 minutes.
Behind the house, watch goldfish swim in a pond fish pond and birds alight on fruit trees and flowers as you sit in the shade and have coffee in the morning.
Antique wide pine floorboards, new bedding and furniture. Jacuzzi tub, Corian countertop in kitchen, Jenn-Air gas cook-top, electric wall oven. Hand-crafted Cherry dining table, deck with patio furniture for outdoor dining. Indoor and outdoor shower.
The house was lovely, the gardens were exquisite, the goldfish pond was tranquil and our hosts could not have been nicer. We had a fabulous time with great access to the beach, bike trails and P Town.
I would highly recommend booking this rental for your vacation.
Our family had a wonderful week on the Cape. The house is small, but fit our needs very well especially with the good sized kitchen since we cooked in a lot. The backyard is beautifully landscaped and offered a nice quiet place to sit after the beach. The location is tremendous with easy access to beaches, Provincetown and Route 6. The owners were helpful when needed. Thanks Roger and Marilyn!
This house is our home away from home when we visit the Cape! This is the 4th year we have stayed at Roger and Marilyn's cottage and everything about it makes our vacation special! The house is always clean and ready for our arrival, and my daughter cannot wait to get out in the backyard to use the swing and to enjoy the fish pond that Roger has created! The location is perfect with the beach a short walk away, a pond to fish at or enjoy the wildlife even closer and a quick drive over to Highland Light house! Roger and Marilyn are always very attentive and no request is left unfilled. The house itself is comfortable, clean and in excellent condition. One of my worries with rentals is the wear and tear on the place due to the large number of people in there throughout the seasons, but at 13 Pond Road, everything is in perfect order! It feels like my own home and I look forward to many more great summers at Cape Cod! Thanks Roger and Marilyn!
This is the third summer we have rented Roger and Marilyn’s home for a week and we love it. The home is located within walking distance to a pond, the bay beach, a small market and cafe, the library and a park. It is a short drive (or flat bike ride) to the National Seashore and ocean beaches. The backyard is fantastic with a beautiful fish pond, a swing and short wooded path perfect for kids to explore. This beautifully restored home is well equipped with cable tv, WiFi, comfortable furniture, linens, washer/dryer and dishwasher. The master bedroom (with attached bath) is a great size and the two smaller bedrooms are perfect for kids. Marilyn and Roger are incredibly gracious and very responsive to any requests we’ve had – last year we discovered the grill wasn’t working and Roger replaced it the same day. If you’re looking for a comfortable, relaxed, family friendly and truly charming Cape Cod home in a perfect location, this is your place.
We have been visiting this part of Cape Cod for over 30 years. We usually stay with family but due to wedding guests we had to find someplace else to stay. We researched several properties in the area on VRBO and we settled on this one. When we got there we knew that we had made the right decision! Roger and Marilyn were very gracious hosts and toured us through the house and property, making us feel very much at home. A lot of work and care has been put into the property and it's renovation. As an historic property it is full of vintage Cape Cod charm and we would not hesitate to stay there again if the need should arise. It's walking distance to the bay and Coast Guard Beach is a short bike or car ride away.
My young boys and I arrived here in the evening, said hello to the owner and almost immediately left to have dinner with family. When we came back later, I noticed the downstairs bathroom had not been cleaned properly (with hair in the sink and "personal" hair on the toilet). I grabbed one of their (extremely worn) towels to wipe up and sand fell off the towel, making me wonder if it had been laundered.
My boys hopped into bed and mentioned there was "stuff" in the sheets - hopefully just sand, but...? I then went into the upstairs bathroom and saw the dried urine around the base of the (non-functioning) toilet and also on the wall next to the toilet. The floors were not clean and rugs not vacuumed.
The 3 of us left late that night and stayed elsewhere. I emailed the owners after we left that night stating that the house was too dirty to stay in and that it would not work for us. I offered to pay for that night, even though we had to make other arrangements.
I came back in the morning to get our belongings and to show the owner the issues. Roger admitted to knowing that the toilet didn't work but "You know how hard it is to get someone out here" was his excuse for not getting it fixed. He said that he had steam cleaned the bathroom 5 times prior to our arrival and that WE must have made that mess. I asked for my deposit back (1/2 of the cost of the week) and Marilyn refused to return it! She yelled at me to get off of her property and followed me around until I did. She was a very nasty person (though Roger seemed to be a little less aggressive).
I am currently in mediation with them (through "Consumer Advocate Council" if anyone needs them in the future!). I took photos to prove how dirty the house was.
These people do not have a clue as to how to rent a vacation property.
I honestly can't imagine anyone who would find this place acceptable. Even people who are there to "party" would have a hard time there. There are other much nicer places to rent in North Truro. This place is a dump.
