A wonderful, large family home with a great yard! We had a great time especially with the short walk to Skaket Beach. The home is filled with quality amenities. We hope to come back next year!!

Lovely stay!

Our family stayed at this home recently. We were very happy with the accommodations and the owner! The house is spacious, clean and close to the beach. We would stay here again!

Peaceful, lush, well-kept home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Let me start with the process of setting up the rental:

The owner Alexis was professional, friendly, and answered every advance question rapidly, thoroughly. She contacted me a few days prior to arrival to set up the rendezvous to turn over keys and explain the home in detail.

We found the house impeccably clean, stocked with basics such as tp, spices, oil, a welcome bottle of wine and a well-outlined document describing the amenities and the neighborhood.

The home is located on a lush green property (we actually held an on-site outdoor yoga class on the lawn, watched Bambi and her mom, and various critters mostly small) a VERY VERY short walk to a part of Skaket Beach that has very few visitors. We loved it. The wonderful outdoor shower helped wash the sand off, and voila, ready to sit in the shade and read our books.

The decor is large and welcoming, and the 8 people the home accommodates should have no trouble staying out of each others' way. The owner Alexis is responsive to any questions with a great friendly attitude. I will consider returning in a heartbeat.

cape vac 2016

  • 5 of 5

This past year marked our 3rd year staying at this property and we already booked for next year. We enjoy the spacious home and outdoor patio where we enjoy our adult beverages. There are plenty of nice restaurants nearby. Skaket Beach is a mile away and is a perfect spot to watch the sunset. Alexis is always available should you have any questions.

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I stay at this beautiful home in Orleans every September and we love it! The house is in a perfect location on a quiet road yet close to the center of town and minutes away from Skaket Beach. The house is spacious with a great open layout. There are plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone to have space of their own. Alexis, the homeowner, is easy to do business with, very prompt with all correspondence and friendly. She takes pride in her home and loves to open it up to others. We look forward to this vacation every year and have already booked for 2017!

A spacious, comfortable home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time here. From the spacious and well-appointed house, to the beautiful backyard (and the beautiful hammock), to the short walk to the beach, to the owner herself who manages to be both inconspicuous and so helpful when necessary, it seems almost impossible to not have a wonderful time. We would definitely return.
