About the property

Immaculate 5 Bdrm, 3 bath - Sleeps 13! Central Air!

Vacation in beautiful Chatham! Outstanding, immaculate five bedroom home with central air conditioning on a triple lot in highly desirable Bucks Creek at Ridgevale Beach. This house sleeps 13 (11 in beds and 2 on the sleeper sofa). Enjoy the spacious yard for fire pit conversation, cookouts, yard games, and much, much more. The ocean view from the second floor master bedroom is absolutely stunning. This house has it all including wireless internet, flat screen HDTVs, an outdoor shower, propane grill, complete linen service, beach chairs and toys, and a beach wagon to convenient transport everything you need! It is exactly what you would want in a vacation getaway! Private neighborhood footbridge takes you to extremely attractive, private section of Ridgevale Beach on Nantucket Sound. The distance from the house to the beach is a 133 second walk! Ridgevale Beach is the only beach in Chatham with a permanent snack stand, which also has sailboat, kayak, and paddleboard rentals! This property sells out early. Prime location!!

The owners are committed to reinvesting in the property and have made significant upgrades recently, including installation of central air, updating living room furniture, replacing all linens, new patio dining table, new cushioned chaise lounges on the deck, new screened-in porch furniture, new wood-burning fire pit, new kitchen appliances, etc. We embrace any feedback from our guests and do whatever we can to make the house more and more accommodating every year!

Chatham Cape Cod: The quaint, seaport village of Chatham on the elbow of Cape Cod is simply a wonderful vacation. Specialty shops and fine dining complimented with clean, family-friendly beaches is a vaction your family will always remember. The warm tidal pools at Ridgevale Beach with ocean breezes will make this the first of many trips to Chatham for your family.

Immaculate Property: The Galop property is noted for cleanliness as the owners are very particular regarding the condition of the house for their tenants. There are many returning families along with friends they have recommended thanks to the wonderful experience, location and immediate proximity to the beach, and the immaculate accommodations.

Guest Book Comments: The most gratifying part for the home owner's are the endless streams of compliments in the guest book about the vacation and accommodations exceeding the guests' expectations. This property sells out fast due to cleanliness, location, value and returning guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our first stay in Cape Cod and spending it in your home made it that much better. The whole family loved to be outside on the property playing soccer, football, baseball, anything we could! The boogie boards and beach equipment helped make the hot sunny days at the beach tons of fun! We took trips to P-Town, the downtown area, yoga studios, ice cream shops, some great restaurants, and more! On the beach for a day we rented paddle boards and had a super fun time. Thank you, we really enjoyed staying in your beautiful home!

The house was a great fit for us and the location perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Hosting my family reunion here could only be surpassed by better weather as this home offered comfort and convenience. Loved the fire pit bbq and seat wall, large outdoor yard to play and gather, shelter from the storm in the screened porch, open layout with kitchen island-living room-dining room, comfy beds, and updated bathrooms. We can't wait to return and get a chance for more time on Ridgevale Beach again!

Located near great ice cream store, bakery and restaurant. Some minor repairs and replacements would have enhanced our stay.

Perfect beach house and location

  • 5 of 5

This is my 4th year renting for 2 weeks in August. I have 4 young (5 and under) grandchildren. It's perfect for them - big yard, very close to beach, and Ridgevale Beach is great for young kids because of the shallow areas that it has. The house is well equipped and the owners have been really good to deal with.

Such a perfect house for a Cape escape!

  • 5 of 5

11 friends stayed at the house for the weekend to celebrate the upcoming wedding of one of our own, and we had an amazing time. This house is truly perfect! We absolutely loved the decks, fire pit, and nice grill for outdoor entertainment. The interior is lovely and easily accommodates a large group for sleeping, cooking, dining, bathroom facilities, and relaxing. We were especially impressed with the dining room - the huge table and cute but comfortable chairs with cross-breezes coming thorough from the screen doors make it the perfect place to celebrate and enjoy meals! Loved the short walk to a beautiful beach, and enjoyed a phenomenal dinner at Del Mar Bistro in town. We really loved our time at this house and hope we can come back again some day (hopefully when it's warmer so we can try that awesome outdoor shower!) Thank you, Peter, for your hospitality!

Awesome house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot. The house is very comfortable and the location can't be beat. Our kids (three under age 6) had a fantastic time down at the tide pools at the beach and the yard was the perfect spot for them to run around while we bbq'd outside and ate dinner. I would highly recommend this house and location!

Beautiful House, Great Location, Awesome Outdoor Amenities

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect Cape Cod vacation house! My extended family and I stayed at this house to celebrate my father's 60th birthday, and everyone in our party (which included ages ranging from 1 year old to 79 years old) was blown away! On the inside, the house is gorgeous, in pristine condition, and has plenty of space. One of our favorite features was the long dining table, which comfortably fit 10 adults, 2 children and 2 babies, was open to the kitchen/living area, and featured beautiful views. The exterior of the house and it's location are phenomenal. We loved the huge yard (which is on a quiet street -- a huge plus for kids running around), the multiple decks with tables, chairs, and lounge chairs, and stunning firepit. The walk to the ocean is very easy and just a few minutes long, and the beach is absolutely gorgeous. It was a little chilly during our stay, but that did not affect us in the least -- we still strolled the beach, used the firepit every night, cooked out on the gas grill, laid out on the decks, and had a lot of fun exploring beautiful Chatham and the neighboring towns. In addition to the top notch quality of the home, the owner, Peter, was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was extremely responsive, helpful, and was very accommodating to our group. I have rented houses on VRBO many times, and Peter is one of the best owners I have ever come across. If you are looking for a getaway to the Cape, this house is a great choice!!
