PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in West Falmouth and fell in love with the house and the neighborhood. The house was the perfect size and layout for our multi-generational family. The little ones were thrilled with the playroom and toys, and were safe in the fenced-in back yard. The adults were even more thrilled with the proximity to the West Falmouth Market, and the Village Cafe and Eulinda's Ice Cream right down the street. We loved the bike path and nightly walks to view the sunset at the Dock Street harbor. Beach days were easy at either Chappy or Old Silver Beach (if you have little ones, go to the far left beach) with the $60 per week beach pass purchased from the Surf Beach office. This location was perfect for all of our activities, and the owners extremely nice and responsive.

RUSTIC CHARM AND A GREAT LOCATION...

  • 5 of 5
West Falmouth is our favorite place to stay when we arrive at our home away from home, Cape Cod. And having a home located close to Chappy and down the street from the West Falmouth Market is a HUGE plus. But trying to find a nice home that's affordable to a family of six can be very difficult. We were very pleased with the rustic charm of this home. The outdoor shower was great for the little ones after the beach (mom and dad enjoyed it as well). The fenced in yards, both front and back are also a HUGE plus if you have small children. The owners were great and very easy to work with. We are looking at the calendar now to plan our next stay this coming summer 2014! Thanks Linda!

EXACTLY AS ADVERTISED, AN EXCELLENT RENTAL FOR FAMILIES.

  • 5 of 5
You simply can't ask for better than this on the Cape. I grew up in Falmouth and I vacation there yearly, so I know the Cape and the houses there; I don't believe you can find a better rental anywhere on the Cape, even if you pay more. We're a family of six, so when we vacation space is essential. This place has plenty. The description given in VRBO is precisely what you will find. The house is attractive, well suited for entertaining, and very well-kept. The beds are sturdy and comfortable. The furniture is in good condition and is solid. The location is excellent: only a few miles out of downtown Falmouth (the best town on the Cape by far), not far from Bourne Bridge and close to Old Silver, which is an excellent beach. The neighborhood is a half-hip, half-rustic area, with a great gourmet deli and grocery (with beautiful new terrace seating) not 2 minutes walk from your front door. We used it extensively. The kitchen is well equipped, and you can cook anything there that you can at home. The outdoor grill is excellent. There are good large pots for steaming lobster and shellfish. The owners are easy to work with and responsive; no worries, no problems, no unanswered communications. I will not consider renting anywhere else on the Cape, and will probably contact Linda soon to reserve for next year. Take it from a local boy: this house IS your best option, particularly if you have kids. And if you're new to the area, let me give you a handful of tips that will make your stay as fun as it can be:

1. Get a Beach Pass. It's easy.
2. Visit the Cape Code Cafe in Brockton MA. Nothing like it in the whole world. Order the linquica pizza. Ask for it crispy.
3. Buy your raw seafood at Shaw's.
4. Dine at the Captain Kidd in Woods Hole. The Clam Chowder is incredible. Take the Whoosh Trolley or see #12.
5. Spend a day in Provincetown.
6. Eat at Betsy's on Martha's Vineyard. Get to the ferry in the early morning. EARLY. The Island Home is the better of the two ships.
7. Take the Viking for a canal cruise out of Buzzard's Bay
8. Drive the 28 all the way from Falmouth to Provincetown
9. Eat breakfast or lunch at Pie in the Sky in Woods Hole as often as you can.
10. Spend a day in Plymouth,MA. Eat at any of the waterfront restaurants there.
11. Visit Plimoth Plantation.
12. Rent a bike and use the Bike Path. Kids love it. The best part of the ride is Falmouth to Woods Hole. No need to park a car, and you can have a few drinks.

GREAT CAPE HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here! The house was wonderful! Clean and had everything we needed, including tons of toys for our kids. It's in a perfect location across from an ice cream shop, cafe, and down the street from the market. We loved the bike trail just down the street. The owner was very professional and very accessible.

GREAT VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a week at the cape house this past July. We were travelling with another family and between us had children aged 5-12. We could not have asked for more from a vacation. The house was clean and easily accommodated our large group. The backyard was perhaps the best feature with plenty of space for the kids to play and a large table and brand new bar b q. We spent every night dining under the stars. We brought bikes with us and were able to bike to two beautiful beaches easily. The house was also located easy drives away from other cape beaches like Chatham and Provincetown. We communicated quite often with the homeowners, both before we left and once we were in the house. Each time our emails were answered promptly and our needs met. We had a great time and are looking forward to returning next summer!

FANTASTIC HOUSE

Great time! Nice house very comfortable. We enjoyed being near the bike path and across the street from the ice cream store. My kids especially loved the toy room.
