My family stayed here for a week in mid-August for our annual family vacation on the Cape. After several summer renting properties through agencies and being somewhat disappointed I decided to try HomeAway. Best. Vacation. Yet. And we owe it in large part to this very clean, very homey rental. Our kids are still fairly small (4yo and 2yo) and we found the home stocked w anything and everything we needed to make the most of Chatham. Melissa's home is located in very quiet and peaceful North Chatham, yet near several new favorite food spots (Lazy Lobster for breakfast and Chatham Coffee Co. for our morning coffee fix) and within walking distant to a neighborhood beach that's quite private. And a very quick drive to the Orleans beaches our kids love so much (Skaket and Nauset).
Some of the amenities that made the trip so easy: quality bed linens and towels included, beach towels provided, a bin of yard toys at our disposal (the super soaker came in handy ;), very well-stocked kitchen cabinets full of pots, pans, knives, etc., a binder of restaurant menus w recommendation notes from Melissa. Plus, she stopped by to see if she could catch us to introduce herself and check on our stay.
I can't recommend this place enough. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this home again. Many many thanks Melissa!
