My wife and I are currently retired after 32 years living in the US and Asia working for a large corporation. We had several oceanfront rental properties over the years from cape cod to st. thomas, virgin islands, but now only rent our home in cape cod, the origin and flagship location of our rental business.
Brian Quinn purchased this house in 1992
We grew up in New England and Cape Cod has always held a special place in our hearts. Immediately fell in love with the views and coziness of this home the moment we first walked in the front door. We have made several capital improvements to the house over the years, but hopefully kept the same original beach charm. West Yarmouth was perfect for us as it is so centrally located for activities, restaurants and shopping. In addition, it is a short drive once over the bridge.
Another stay at Upwind, another solitary complaint....our stay was simply too short!. Everything else was perfect. Thank you for opening your immaculate home to us again. And thank you again, for controlling the gorgeous weather - we won't ask how you do it. Another painful goodbye.
We Had a wonderful week at Upwind ! The house was very well equipped w everything you would need or use at your own home . The Windows / sliders gave you an equisite view of the beach every morning as you opened your eyes - just spectacular ! The bay breeze was incredible too . The weather was also stellar - couldn't ask for better . The owners left a welcome basket too on our first day ..and for the first time ever w renting on the Cape (for 30 plus years ) we didn't need to drag sheets , towels,beach equipment and generic household items .. Bravo to these owners for knowing how to do it right .. We will be back !
On a serene beach, mid-Cape with a short ride to great restaurants and shopping. Only 75 yards to water! Two huge 1st & 2nd floor porches overlooking Lewis Bay . All the amenities included. Private parking area. Owners take GREAT care of this beautiful three bedroom home. Immaculate, wifi, 3 TV's, full kitchen, wine cooler, washer/dryer...all at the end of a lightly traveled side street. It doesn't get any better than this! Location, Location, Location. We'll be back...a Cape vacationer for over 50 years.
Exceptional in EVERY WAY! We were 3 couples looking to rent the perfect vacation home for two weeks and, WE DID! The best home we ever rented. The owners are amazing! Brian and Gail have thought of everything you could possibly need when you are on vacation. Their home is so well-maintained and well-appointed there is nothing you need to bring except your clothes. This home has it all! The location is perfection! It is absolutely centrally located to EVERYTHING. We were within minutes from amazing restaurants (Yarmouth house is terrific, and they even have pick-up because you won’t want to leave this beautiful home); Hyannis town (shopping and concerts); Hyannis Port (daily ferries to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard); Barnstable Harbor (whale watching); etc.—all within 10-20 minutes from your front door. We also enjoyed plenty of beach time. Again, everything is provided—chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc. If you want items like kayaks or paddleboards, you can have them delivered right to the home. We found the perfect way to end a wonderful day was to bring a bottle of wine to the upstairs balcony and watch an amazing sunset. We were so grateful to Brian and Gail for making this a truly memorable experience. We would not hesitate to recommend this home to anyone looking to rent in Cape Cod.
Gail and Brian,
This was just the relaxing retreat our family needed! Your home was everything we could ask for, and more. Soaking in the views from the balcony never gets old (and what a spectacular place to enjoy the fireworks!) We truly appreciate every thought and detail you put into making our stay perfect. Thank you for everything!
Arrived to find a clean, well stocked cottage with all the cooking supplies we could possibly need. The views were wonderful and it took two minutes, tops, to walk to the beach. The owners are available to answer any questions, should you have one. We will be back.
Dear Gail and Brian,
We had such a wonderful week at your charming beach house! Upwind is such a great spot and location. The view was spectacular and we were so relaxed all week. Thank you for making us feel so welcome in your place. Everything we could possibly need or want was there! The boys loved everything too. Hoping to make it back for another week in the near future! Loved our welcome basket too.
