Our vacation home has everything you could look for in a vacation home - a beautiful in-ground pool, Air Conditioning (both upstairs bedrooms and both bedrooms on the main floor), close to Old Silver Beach (5.1 miles), and a convenient, comfortable layout with plenty of room for everyone!
Please note - we rent this home FRIDAY TO FRIDAY during the summer! I do have others that rent Saturday to Saturday if that is what you need.
We are also just 1/4 mile to the back entrance to Ballymeade Country Club, making this an ideal rental for weddings or events held there! 2018 update- you can return to the house from the back entrance, but you can no longer get in that way unless you have a transponder.
We believe we have thought of everything you will need to have a wonderful, memorable Cape Cod vacation, including free high speed internet WiFi, password protected, so bring all your devices!
There is a great, private back yard, with a large comfortable pool with a deep end and a shallow end. You can also hang out on the deck and patio, & cook up some steaks on the gas grill for dining under the stars. We have several tables and many chairs. Two tables have umbrellas, too. There is also a picnic table in the backyard. And we always keep a spare propane tank in case that one runs out.
Our home has two living rooms and four bedrooms (and a 'bonus' fifth bedroom in the basement with two twin beds and private bath, but since it is in the basement, we hesitate to call it a true bedroom). Lots to love, including a newer kitchen, and a very friendly, open layout! Also, three full bathrooms, one on each floor (including the one in the basement). The basement bathroom is shower only - no tub. There is also a game room in the finished basement with a 6' x 3' pool table (slightly smaller than normal size).
The living room is open to the dining room and kitchen, the LR has a 42' flat screen TV over the fireplace. Wow, it looks great and is a very friendly layout!
Our home is conveniently located close to Routes 151 & 28, so it is easy to get to. You will be just a few minutes to downtown Falmouth - one of the best Main Streets in all of New England! And we are just minutes from Mashpee Commons and not one but two movie theaters, including the Falmouth Cinema Pub, where you can have waitress service to eat/drink during the movie! We love it there!
The bedrooms are configured as follows:
BR 1 first floor: (A/C) King Bed, Cable TV, smart TV
BR 2 first floor: (A/C) Queen Bed, and 1 Twin
BR 3 2nd floor (A/C): Queen & 2 Twins
BR 4 2nd floor (A/C): Queen & futon, Cable TV, smart TV
BONUS basement room: 2 twin beds - note that this bedroom is in the basement, and can have higher humidity. We do have a dehumidifier going at all times, but it is important for you to realize this before your rental starts. Basements also tend to be much cooler than the main floors, so it is actually a pretty good bedroom! But in the past not everyone has been thrilled about a basement bedroom, so we just want to point it out in advance. Also in the basement is a living room, that feels like a full living room and not just a finished basement, because the room has a full size picture window. This room has cable TV, several couches, the pool table. Off of this room is the laundry room. You can see it in the pictures.
Our GARAGE is not available to tenants who rent after September or before Memorial Day. For summer tenants, please note that we store some of our items in the garage, you pretty much can expect to use it for trash and bike storage.
The driveway is quite large, and can easily accommodate about 6 cars, two across. We ask that you refrain from driving or parking on our lawn!

Why Dennis Murphy chose East Falmouth
I bought this home because of 1) the POOL! and 2) the layout of the home and 3) the location. I knew it would be a very popular vacation rental and I was correct! It is such a great location, convenient to everything! Plus, you don't even need to leave the home, as the pool and the house are amazing.
What makes this House unique
The large open layout, the large spacious bedrooms, the gameroom, the nice deck, patio, grill and yard, and of course the pool! Many families and groups have rented my home and been very happy. I've configured the bedrooms to allow different groups to still find suitable sleeping arrangements, and with 4 TVs and plenty of space, families find that kids can go up/down stairs to watch a movie in the evenings and the adults can enjoy some uninterrupted adult conversation (and maybe a cocktail). I've heard time and again that the space of the house is really quite excellent!

Review of Sam Turner Road House
The positives of the house revolved around the pool and the backyard. The pool was excellent and we spent much time there together at the poolside. The rooms were fine with those that had air conditioning, and the kitchen and living room were excellent. We had a few issues however as we were left without a dishwasher for the week. As I love to cook as a mode of relaxation, I didn't want to use paper plates so it was disconcerting to not have one. Secondly, I love to grill and the outdoor grill was inoperative (with a gaping hole in the bottom from rust) for the entire week as well. The basement humidifier was also not working properly as it was spewing out heat instead of dehumidifying (the fans were not effective), so we couldn't use the basement bedrooms either. However, despite these inconveniences, we still had a good time in Cape Cod as the area, shops, beaches and people were welcoming and relaxing. Dennis Murphy was informative, cordial and friendly as were his office personnel. I just wish we could have resolved the above issues to have made it a perfect time for us for the week. We intend to vacation again there, but will be a little more selective when we select a house to rent.
Good location but in need of TLC
Property is ten minutes from the nearest town, and close to the main roads. The was plenty of space for us (4 adults and 4 children) and we enjoyed the pool - if not a little cool as it's not heated.
Dennis the owner was quick to respond to our questions, issues and the give information.
The property had a few small issues (we took photos, so can clarify if needed) which Dennis rectified most of them very quickly.
The property is in need of some TLC. Its a well lived in property, and a little shabby in places. It was clean but needs freshening up in areas. The basement area even with the dehumidifier on constantly, still smells damp and we didn't use it at all.
We enjoyed our stay and would consider stay again but in our opinion it would need to be updated and spruced up.
This is our honest appraisal of the property and hope it's helpful to the owner and potential renters.
Family cape adventure
My family and I had a lovely week on cape cod! The house in east Falmouth afforded us a welcome and homey place to enjoy each other's company after a day of exploring. The inground pool was definitely a plus.
Thank you! I'm glad you had a wonderful stay in Falmouth! We look forward to seeing you again!
Exactly what we were looking for
Great house - plenty of room, nice pool, big back yard. Would recommend to anyone looking to get away with a small group!
Perfect getaway from Boston
A group of friends and I rented the house for my birthday and it was perfect! The swimming pool was super nice under the sun and the house has everything one needs. We also went to the old silver beach not too far away which was great experience.
