We enjoyed staying in this little house on Higgins Street. It was clean with everything you need for a beach vacation in Cape Cod. When we arrived, we found that the cottage was clean, but there was still some sand on the floor. John was very responsive and offered for the cleaners to return and clean it right away. Everything was in working order. The outside shower was great! The distance to Cooks Brook Beach is about a half mile. We recommend that renters bring a cart to carry beach gear if walking there. The street was quiet with joggers, dog walkers, and bicyclists going by. Don't forget your bikes!
