Nice...But Not All It Is Supposed to Be...

  • 3 of 5

We rented this home in late June of 2008. The home is very

close to the beach and very quaint. All was as it should have

been except for a few things...

There is no backyard for this residence. There is one but it is

and up and down terrain and covered in ivy. If you have small

children, there is nowhere for them to play. If you are an adult,

there is nowhere to chill. We ended-up setting up lawn chairs

in the clamshell driveway.

The wooden outdoor picnic table was less than desireable.

It was not useable, because essentially it was termites holding

hands, rather than solid wood. Nothing quite like barbequing

and then eating inside.

The rooms of the home are small. The bedrooms especially.

The house was good, but not great.

Owner's Response: Attention Perspective Tenants: We rented our cottage in June of 2008 at an extremely discounted rate. There were at times 3 families in our lovely quaint Cape Cod cottage. Since that time we have partially cleared out the back yard. We have set up six out door chairs and we have purchased a new picnic table.

Close to the beach

  • 3 of 5

My friends and I were looking for a weekend by the beach with the kids and this fit the bill. So close to the beach and a calm beach for the kids. Tide does go out so check. The beach also had lots of seaweed and rocks. The house was older and small but cozy.

The house is very nice, small but perfect for 4 adults and a kid. Very clean and kitchen was well equipped. Can hear the ocean at night. Short 2 min walk to a nice beach. Close to bike path. 10 min drive to downtown chatham. Owner was very nice and responsive. We hope to rent again next year.
