Only one block from: the public beach, the harbor, baseball fields, and soccer fields. Also just one block away from the Casino and British Beer House pub. Both offer dining and bars with water views of Nantucket Sound. Leave your car at home after buying groceries. The Martha's Vineyard ferry is a 10 minute walk. Create adventurous family day trips to MV or Nantucket. There is also a 5 mile bicycle path from downtown Falmouth to the village of Woods Hole. Falmouth village has quaint restaurants, gift shops, and a fantastic library. Excellent public golf courses and tennis courts are just a few miles away. This is an old, charming cottage with a farmers wrap around front porch, a large private back deck, ceiling fans, a private outdoor shower, and ample parking. And steady ocean breezes.
Spent great week here this past August and house is as advertised. Plenty of room for everyone and location could not have been better.
Walk to beach and restaurants. Quick mile drive to Starbucks and mall should you need anything else. Convenience is key on vacation!
Back deck was great for grilling and front deck was great for post beach unwind. Could not recommend this rental any higher.
We had a lovely family vacation at Kevin's cottage this summer. He was a pleasure to deal with and the house is convenient to all the things we like to do while visiting Falmouth.
What a delight! Our family has now stayed at "The Barry House" for over 6 weeks in the past few summers and we have come to love this home as our own.It is an adorable, cape cottage with everything you could ask for in a simple, relaxing space. The home is comfortable, beds are great, a rear deck with grill and seating for dining al fresco and the fantastic front wrap around porch with ocean views was where we lived.The home is situated in the best part of the Heights and convienient to everything.The Barrys are delightful, accomodating and very easy to work with, a great rental experience! HIGHLY recommended!
We loved it there so much,we bought our own place nearby, bittersweet, to not go to The Barry Home, but hope they will let us sneak up on the porch for our Sunset Toasts!
What wonderful get away my family and I had this past weekend (6/14-6/18) at the Barry house. This house has a lot to offer but what really is impressive is the beautiful wrap around front porch it has to sit on and watch the sun come up or relax at night with a glass of wine. The ocean is just a walk down the road away. Location, location, location..... if your looking to either spend the day at the beach, rent a bike from Holiday Cycles, or just take a nice walk around a quiet, quaint neighborhood this property has it. The owner is detailed and accommodating in every way. We can't wait to rent again. I would highly recommend this property.
My friends and I have been visiting the Cape twice a year for the last 18 years. For the last 5 years we have stayed at Kevin’s cottage. There are six of us and the accommodations are spacious and very comfortable. The house is just one block away from Nantucket Sound and we especially enjoy the view of the water from the very large front porch where we spend many hours talking, laughing and just hanging out. There is also a beautiful walkway along Nantucket Sound that we use daily during our stay.
The cottage is convenient to shopping, great restaurants (you can walk to several), the public beach, which is within easy walking distance, and just about everything else you would want to do. The town of Falmouth is our favorite. It‘s very quaint and there are wonderful restaurants and shops for browsing.
We usually visit in April or May and September or October. The Cape is just beautiful during these seasons. I would recommend this property to any type of group looking for comfort, convenience and accessibility to all ammenities. You’ll have a great time!!
Yes, 4 generations...my Mom marks her calendar, and plans her year around one week with her two Great Grand Daughters. You notice the porch? That is where the eight of us spend hours...laughing, reading, chatting, reading to "the girls", and reconnecting.
Kevin's cottage is perfect for the group that wants to share time, together. Quaint bedrooms, big dining table, comfortable living room, convenient deck off the kitchen, and super, "outdoor" shower for after-beach clean-up. We have 3 vehicles to bring, and it's no problem...we still have the side yard to play.
Honestly, we are very familiar with other Cape towns, but Falmouth, and "the heights" are special. 2011 will be our third Summer with this house...and we are "booked". We have stayed in the Heights area since 1991, for vacation week/August. Walk to the beach, walk to "the Island Queen", bike to Woods Hole, or the Canal, dine at wonderful restaurants (sometimes we WALK to dinner!!), whatever your group loves to do, Kevin's cottage could be your "home away from home".
The community of Falmouth is "welcoming" to one and all...and I haven't even covered how beautiful the "off season" can be here.
Forest Avenue, Falmouth Heights. A perfect location for the family vacation. Within walking distance is a public beach, harbor, a baseball field and basketball court. Also two restaurants with ocean views. Martha's Vineyard ferry and the Woods Hole bike path! Leave your car in the driveway. Relax and have fun.
Golf: The Falmouth Country Club and the Cape Cod Country Club are two excellent public courses within 5 miles of the cottage.
