Roomy 3 bedroom, 2 bath on a quiet dead end street. All bedrooms are on the main floor. Also two TV/family rooms plus a living room for the family that wants to spread out. Less than 1/4 mile from the Cape Cod Rail Trail (bike trail), 1.5 miles from the National Seashore beaches, and 1.5 miles from the calmer Bay side beaches of the Cape Walking distance to ice cream and donuts/coffee. Garage for bike storage. Huge deck.
Please note there are NO pets allowed and NO smoking allowed at this property.
LOCATION: The location of the house is wonderful. Convenient to all points of interest in Eastham. Bike trail, Ben and Jerrys ice cream, Sam's Deli, fish markets (Friendly Fisherman and Mac's), restaurants (Fairway, Hole in One Donut shop, Local Break) all in short walking distance (under 1/2 mile). Less than a 5 minute drive in any direction gets you to both bay and ocean side beaches, mini golf, the town green, and so much more. Also, Orleans to the South and Welfleet to the north are only about 15 minutes by car and great towns to visit!
HOUSE: The deck is beautiful and it was great to have a gas grill (most cape rentals have charcoal if they have a grill at all.) We ate breakfast outside every morning. The sitting set with the gray cushions is very comfortable, but I would personally swap the Picnic table for a full patio set (just my preference.)
The inside of the house shows some nice updates (master bath is very nice) but if you plan on cooking a lot of meals at home, the kitchen is REALLY tight. We knew it was galley style going in but it just wasn't what we were expecting. We used it quite a bit (with a 10 month old we ate dinners at home and made our lunches to take to the beach with us) and it got cramped with two people in it. Upstairs and downstairs TV rooms are nice, but I would rather see the downstairs TV moved to the living area in front of the extremely comfy living room furniture.
The garage contains basic beach chairs and beach games. It is also a great place to store the grey outdoor cushions when you know it will rain. Plenty of space for bike storage as well.
Outdoor shower is very clean with good temp and pressure. There is a little "privacy" issue from the rear bedroom, but nothing terrible. Owner may want to check the latching mechanism on the door as it tends to stick after closing. Wifey had to rescue me the first time we used it haha.
All in all we had a nice stay at the home and Paul was very accommodating and offered an open line off communication during our stay. I would recommend the property to friends and family with OLDER children.
We were so impressed with this Cape home! We have been going to the Cape for years during the summer months. We found this home on HomeAway.com and couldn't have been happier! The owners were so prompt and easy to deal with, they made the entire experience a pleasure! The home is much roomier than it looks in the pictures, the kids had plenty of room to play and not get in each others way. We spent many a night on the gorgeous new deck grilling, eating, drinking and talking. It was a hot week but the inside stayed very cool and was extremely quiet and peaceful. Love the layout of the home and extremely glad we had the two bathrooms so there was no waiting...ha! We will definitely be going back next year and would highly recommend this Cape home to our friends and family. And we have to mention that Eastham is a beautiful town with access to the National Seashore! The kids loved the Nauset Light Beach and Coast Guard Beach for boogie boarding. The bike trail is so close to this home, we took many a ride and walk on it, you will never get bored! We also walked to get ice cream in the evening at Ben & Jerry's and Nauset Ice Cream. We did so much in our week and had such a great vacation, thank you to the owners for sharing their home with us...we WILL be back!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. We're glad you had a great vacation and enjoyed the house. We think Eastham has the best Cape beaches on both the ocean and bay sides. And thanks for the nice words about the house. We look forward to you staying again next summer.
This property was absolutely perfect for our first big Cape vacation. The property owners were so detail-oriented and organized throughout the whole process. I was very impressed with how smooth the whole transaction was.
The house is really wonderful. It was so much more spacious than we expected, and the deck was the perfect place to spend our evenings grilling out and relaxing.
It rained the first couple of days of our trip but the owners had provided a list of great activities, such as the Truro winery.
On all of the sunny days of our vacation we were able to bike to the local beaches. We biked to Marconi, Nauset, and Coast Guard, and we loved them all!
The location is excellent. We walked to the Friendly Fisherman for dinner on our first and last nights there and we were also within walking distance of a couple of little markets so I was able to sneak out and walk to the market for milk before my fellow vacationers woke up.
All in all the house is really perfect for anyone looking for a relaxing stay on the Cape with easy access to the beaches and bike trails. We loved it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. We're so glad you enjoyed the house and had a wonderful vacation.
I would recommend this house to anyone who wants to relax on vacation and have fun with the family. So close to everything you need or want while on vacation. The owners make it so that all you really need to bring is sheets, towels and extra blankets. The great thing about the owner is how he makes you feel wanted and comfortable from the start of your interest with the property to even after your stay. Very warm and comforting. The house is also located in the beginning of a cul-de-sac. which is great if your escaping the car noises the city can have.
My family and I had such an amazing time. The house is more spacious than the pictures show. One end of the house has the master bedroom and master bath (which is spectacular ;-) ), and the other end of the house is where the two bedrooms are along with the second bathroom. Also located in this section is an upstairs loft area where one of the TV’s are located along with plenty of seating and below is the other section where there was a TV, books, puzzles and games for you to enjoy.
Very quiet neighborhood, which made it more relaxing sitting out on the deck. Very convenient to restaurants, mini golf, beaches and drive in. You could walk to Dunkin Donuts, Sam's Deli (great sandwiches), country store with all your needs should you forget anything, Mac's Seafood (lobsters and so on, great prices and they will cook the lobsters for free, Here is where you should go to get great lobsters), Hole in One is a donut shop with huge fresh donuts and coffee along with cup cakes, Fair view restaurant was nice and the bike trail.
Arnolds resturant is also located on RT 6 and not far from the house, I would not recommend going, they over cooked the lobsters and charge more than market price.
It's best to go to Nauset Beach by 9:30am, small parking lot and fills up quickly, but the beach is so great. We ended up buying a pass for $45.00 good for the remainder of the year to any National Seashore beach, otherwise the cost is $15.00 per day.
My family and I are looking forward to renting this home again next year. =)

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words and helpful reviews of local businesses. We're glad you liked our place and had such a great time. We think Nauset Light Beach is the best beach on Cape Cod. It's so spacious and the waves are awesome. I hope you were able to get to Ben & Jerry's or Nauset Light ice cream too!
This place is great! The house is spacious, has wireless wifi, and provided us with all the amenities we needed for a week of rest, relaxation and summer fun! The back porch is great for hanging outside and playing games or reading. The kids hardly turned on the TV because the bike trail is SO close by! And the location is AWESOME - whether you like your beach on the bay or the ocean, you are a short equal distance from both!! Also, plenty to see, do, eat and explore being here - this house puts you smack in the middle of everything (from lower Cape to P-Town shopping end-to-end)! They have a separate garage to store bikes, boogie boards and take the trash and recyclables. The only negative comment we have of our entire stay is the outdoor shower is neither private nor inviting (hope they rectify this). We'd recommend this home to everyone (and have)!!
