Great Week!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for you and your family to enjoy all of the Cape. We stayed in late August and the weather was perfect, rained on only one day but the game room was awesome (pinball, airhockey, darts, pac-man and more). The town is great and within walking distance or a $4 cab ride if you don't want to drive. Good jewelery and local/festive shopping. Great bars and restaurants. Not one but 2 beaches less than a 1/4 mile away. Ferry within walking distance to go to the Vineyard or Nantucket.

All in all you want this property!

Great Cape Cod Experience

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here in mid August and can't say enough great things. This was our first time visiting Cape Cod and traveling with 3 generations ranging from 6 weeks to 70 years old poses a challenge, but this home was the perfect choice for our family. Walking distance to downtown, ferries and the beach made every day so fun and convenient. We were able to have some meals at "home" utilizing the grill and the fully equipped kitchen. Sleeping arrangements were perfect for us, giving everyone their own private space and bathroom. We would definitely return as our family continues to grow and highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a large, clean, and comfortable vacation home.

Great Cape Cod Experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house!! So clean and spacious - can't say enough about it. The location is fantastic - walking distance to downtown/ferry. The kitchen was well equipped and the towels and linens provided were of great quality. They pretty much include everything you think you'll need for a beach vacation including beach chairs and toys! Liz and Mike could not have been nicer. They were readily accessible if questions or needs came up - very helpful! We had an incident in the game room, which Liz and Mike were very gracious about and even returned our full deposit. I highly recommend this rental and hope to do it again next year!

Perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about the house! We had a group of 12 from age 5 to 76 and it was perfect. The upstairs suites were perfect for my daughters and their families and the two bedrooms downstairs were away from the noise. Everything was clean and well furnished. Liz and Mike were nearby but not intrusiver and took care of all our needs and questions. We cooked in most of the time and found the kitchen very well equipped and the dining room spacious with a table large enough for all of us! We also are at the two picnic tables on the patio especially with a messy meal like steamers! The kids loved riding their bikes to the beach, for ice cream and into town. There are three beaches within walking distance and we enjoyed them all. The game room provided many hours of entertainment for everyone. The beds were all very comfortable and bedrooms roomy. I cannot not think of one thing that was lacking and we have rented many different places. We definitely hope to go back. Thank you Liz and Mike!

Great holiday home

  • 5 of 5

House is exactly as described - spotlessly clean, well equipped and spacious. Ideal for families. Great location right by beach/ferry terminal and a handful of restaurants. Slightly longer walk to Main St. Owners were extremely helpful and we had a wonderful stay.

A perfect place/way to spend family time.

  • 5 of 5

When we first stepped inside the house we knew this was going to be a wonderful week. The five bathrooms and four sleeping areas allowed for having a personal space for each family unit and made getting "away" from the rest for a bit easy. The game room gave the kids something to do at the end of the day when no adults were interested in going back to the beach for "one more swim". The house was clean, neat and fully equipped with everything needed for cooking, sleeping and anything else. Although a beach pass was included the beaches were easily walkable and allowed the sand to leave the feet before entering the house. Kalmus Beach is lovely with waves big enough for boogie boarding. Would definitely recommend this house for multi-family vacations.
