Perfect cottage near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cute cottage in Falmouth. The location was great--the house has views of a gorgeous saltwater pond from the kitchen, foyer and living room. It was a quick walk to a beautiful beach, with British Beer Company and another restaurant right there. A short drive got us to downtown Falmouth and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard.

The house is nicely furnished and decorated, it was just as described and pictured (except for some updates in fabrics). We enjoyed the cute nautical decorating touches like a Nantucket basket and a ship model. We appreciated thoughtful extras like a beach wagon with toys and a binder of tourist information.

The only downsides were a tiny yard and the lack of a washer/dryer (we made use of a huge children's playground and a laundromat in nearby downtown Falmouth).

The owner Kevin was quick to respond and helpful in all of our interactions. Would definitely recommend this rental!

Best spot on the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

This summer was our third time renting this wonderful property. There is no better place in Falmouth, in our opinion.

Beautiful views of Little Pond with cool breezes and the beach is just a short walk away. This clean, well-kept home has it all and is great for families with small children or a couple looking to get away. We first rented when it was "just us" several years in a row and then took a few years off. This year we came back with our 3 1/2 year old and it was great for our first real family vacation. Everything is close by -- shops, restaurants, ferry to the Vineyard, yet the location is quiet and restful.

The owners are a pleasure to deal with and take great pride in providing a beautiful vacation spot for guests.

Don't miss out on this gem!

We'll be back next summer for sure!

  • 5 of 5

As always, Kevin and Gloria's house was a delight: immaculate and bursting with quintissential beach house charm. Honestly, Gloria has outdone herself in the decorating department. Both cottages are straight out of Cape Cod Life magazine! Perhaps the best part of vacationing here, however, is being directly on the water. Little Pond, in all of it's salt water beauty, is a treasure. From the flaming sunrises in the mornings, to the kayaking adventure we shared with the kids (we paddled to the sandbar and found lots of crabs and treasures!), to the soothing breeze that kicks up off the water in the is impossible not to fall in love with this little piece of heaven! And if this isn't enough, it is a 5 minute walk to the end of the road and there it is: Bristol Beach. No hassle, no packing a huge cooler full of a day's worth of food, no hot car ride with children wondering, "are we there yet?"...just stroll down, sit and relax. The house comes complete with beach toys, chairs and a wagon to transport them (or your kids!) to and from the water. When it's lunch time, or time for a bathroom break, we leave our gear on the beach and zip back to the house. It is truly the only way to vacation with kids! We have made 5 years worth of vacation memories here and I can't wait for more...thank you so much, Kevin and Gloria for everything you do to make us feel welcome and comfortable in your home!

Cape Cod Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in one of Kevin and Gloria's houses a week in June/2011. Falmouth is a wonderful town to use as a base to explore the Cape and the setting by the pond was divine. Kevin and Gloria were wonderful hosts. We hope to return to the cape and stay in the same house.

We are located in Falmouth Heights directly on 'Little Pond', which is a saltwater inlet on Vineyard Sound. It has 180-degree views of the water which are absolutely beautiful…… The house is on a quiet street and in a friendly family oriented neighborhood, with Falmouth Heights Beach is only a short walk (~ 300 yds)....The house is very clean, very comfortable, and very nicely furnished. Having rented on the Cape for many years, we know how important this is.....The house has all of the beach amenities you would need, including beach chairs, umbrellas, toys, coolers, and a convenient beach wagon to get these items back and forth to the beach....We also have wireless i-net, a gas grill and nice outside shower…(as well as a full bath in).....Thanks so much for inquiring about our home..... Please call anytime for questions or clarifications....Kevin & Gloria Leach
