Contemporary home, located on a hill on 1/2 acre wooded lot on a dead-end street. The house is an 'upside-down' house with 2 large bedrooms and a bath on the first floor (not in the basement, the basement is another level down) and the master bedroom, bath and living room/kitchen/dining area on the second floor. The living room/dining/kitchen area has windows and sliding glass doors running the entire length of the space (about 38 ft) that lead out to a deck that has treetop views. The living area is one big open space with a soaring ceiling and a skylight. The house is very bright, and airy with large windows in all the rooms. Because the living space is up high it is very private, and the front glass wall makes it great for sunsets and star gazing. The master bedroom has a queen-size bed. There are two other large bedrooms - one with 2 sets of bunk beds (4 singles), the other with a double bed.
Internet, Playstation2, DVD / VHS player, washer dryer. Note- This is a Sunday to Sunday rental.

wonderful house in the trees
This was our first summer vacation on the Cape. So glad we chose this house! We were able to bike to a bay side beach,which was one of our favorites. We created some delicious meals and watched the meteor shower from the great deck! Karen was always available to answer any questions we had. I would definitely stay here again!
Perfect house to enjoy Wellfleet
We've enjoyed our 3 years in this lovely, family home and look forward to summer '10. The house is private yet convenient to town, and both bay and ocean beaches. There are lots of distractions for children on rainy days - ping pong, games, movies, puzzles. The kitchen has everything needed (including a new nonstick pan!) and it truly feels like you are in the Treetops. I really like the Sunday-Sunday rental term since this provides an opportunity to enjoy a Saturday night out as well as avoid the heavier Saturday traffic. The owners are flexible and accommodating. We've been renting on the Cape for 10 years and feel fortunate to have found the ideal spot for our annual vacation.
A wonderful family get away.
This house made our family of 6 feel at home. It had everything that four kids could ask for. Very spacious home with large open decks. The three bedrooms had plenty of room. Very nice outdoor shower. Kids loved that there was guitar hero and a play station. All kinds of great kid games. Our kids really enjoyed charades for kids! With all the windows there is plenty of sun light and there is a very nice breeze on the deck from being up so high. The deck has a great eating area for outside dinning. The kitchen had everything we needed for pots, pans, dishware, silverware, utensils, blenders.... we were very surprised on how well equipped it was. Most beaches from this home are a 10 minute or less drive. Wellfleet is a very nice town. The market there is very high priced and if you get the chance to go to stop & shop get as much as possible so you won't have to spend so much at the local market! The owners of this home gave us plenty of great tips on the area including restaurants, walks, beaches, ponds ext. and were very helpful with any questions we had. I would recommend this home to any one and will defiantly go back. But I would really like to keep it our own little secret instead!!
Tree top breezes
The description of this house as in the tree tops is accurate, and there are indeed lovely breezes that pervade. We had a rain storm one day, and the over hanging roof line prevented any rain from coming into the house, which was great. The location was further from town than we expected- it's not really an easy walk. House is spacious with room enough for 6 adults to co-exist comfortably. Kitchen is nicely equipped although a new non-stick fry pan would be a good addition. Plenty of plastic ware and cups.
The furniture is fairly old, worn and yet pretty comfortable. Beds are acceptable for comfort but the mattress pads and pillow are in sad shape. Actually the pillows were pretty gross, and we ended up having our guests bring their own. Hard to understand why owners can't provide clean bedding. Old quilts and throw pillows also pretty worn out and dirty.
Outdoor shower was a plus, and the decks are spacious and clean.
Overall the house suited us well, but I would not rent again unless there were some updates as mentioned above.
The house is located on the Bay side of Route 6 near Great Island, Griffin Island and Bound Brook Island. It's a short bike ride/walk to Wellfleet town center, a bike ride or short drive to Bay beaches, especially Duck Harbor, Mayo beach, or Great Island. It's also close and has easy access to Ocean beaches and fresh water ponds.
