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!

Another amazing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is - I believe - our third year renting this lovely house for two weeks. Ideal place for family vacation. House is comfortable, roomy, well appointed. Spectacular yard and outside area great for competitive family games of croquet, kickball, corn hold, etc. Screened porch and decks also amazing. The location cannot be beat.....a short walk to Ridgevale Beach. With several toddler grandchildren, they particularly enjoy the tidal pools there.

Very happy to have found this great property.

Perfect Cape house

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully appointed, clean, comfortable, sunny home just short walk to beach. Loads of gorgeous outdoor space including multiple decks, screened-in porch, large yard with fire pit. Steps away from private beach walk. House has all amenities including convenient washer/dryer and gas grill. Plenty of towels and linens, beach toys and chairs. Peter is very conscientious of his guests' comfort, and it shows in all aspects of the property. He was always accessible if we had questions - but with all provided we didn't need a thing! We had a wonderful time in an idyllic location!

Great trip

  • 4 of 5

This house served our purposes well. We really enjoyed the living room, dining room and kitchen and it was well stocked. The linens were a little..used, but fine. The rooms were a touch smaller than I thought they looked in the pictures, but again, more than fine! We really enjoyed the fire pit and the close proximity to the water was AMAZING. All toddlers could walk to and from themselves, no need for strollers or carrying them while trying to carry everything else. I highly recommend this house.

Truly Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Peter's house definitely lived up to my expectatuons. We had the house filled to capacity but never felt overcrowded...there was plenty of room for everyone! The house and yard were very well maintained and we had everything we could possibly hope for provided. Peter was extremely responsive and easy to work with. We will certainly stay here again the next time we are on the Cape!

A Wonderful Chatham Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

Recently, my extended family had the pleasure of spending a wonderful Thanksgiving in this beautiful Chatham home. The house was spacious and very clean. It easily accommodated 10 adults in comfort. The kitchen worked just fine in preparing our holiday dinner, something most summer rentals probably would not be equipped for! The Chatham beaches are gorgeous any time of year, but a Thanksgiving walk on Riverdale beach was indeed special. Many thanks to Peter Galop in making our family gathering easy. Peter is responsive and very accommodating. I highly recommend this property to any one at any time of year!
