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!!

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.

Spacious, Clean, Comfy and Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting houses on the Cape for 5 years looking for "the one". I think we found it. Alexis's home is extremely spacious. The open kitchen/dining/living layout downstairs was fantastic and allowed us to watch our kids while prepping dinner. The bedrooms between the 3 upstairs and the 1 downstairs were so spacious our 2 families (4 adults, 3 kids) had room to spare. The backyard was lush and green with plenty of room for the kids to run around. And the short walk down the dirt path (1/3 mile?) to the beach was lovely. Most days the beach was totally secluded and it was if you had it all to yourself. The house was well equipped and extremely clean. And the 3-zone AC was definitely a nice feature on those hot days. We definitely plan to come back next year!

Family Fun and Freedom

  • 5 of 5

HFR is a home environment, not just a rental. Hospitality, space and proximity are the keys to its success. The owners are very responsive to your questions and needs; they go above and beyond to make you comfortable. HFR has everything you need in the kitchen. HFR provides all the beach paraphernalia; so no packing toys, chairs, umbrellas... HFR is spacious, providing gathering spots for games and conversations- inside and out. Our favorite is the patio where we start and end each day. Bedrooms/baths are quiet and private, away from family hub bub. The private bayside beach is a short walk from the house… no traffic or parking fees to deal with, as you would at other beaches. The beach is great at high tide and low tide… freedom for the kids to run and the adults to meander for miles. This was our sixth year in HFR and we are sure to have more as our family sees this place as their very own retreat!
