Nice, clean and convenient

  • 4 of 5

This was a neat and tidy house that was super-convenient to the Ridgevale Beach. The house was clean upon arrival and tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the screened-in porch and open living space. Master bedroom is bright and sunny and upstairs laundry was convenient. Listing description is accurate.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and i stayed here for a week in August.You couldn't ask for a better location! The house was a quick walk to a great beach for children(we have 6 year old twins). They had tons of fun walking around all day catching small fish and crabs with nets and building sand castles. The owners were great to work with and the house had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. We look forward to coming back next year!

A little disappointing

  • 3 of 5

The house was smaller than I expected. It might sleep 8 but you can't fit more than 5 in the living room And that's with everyone sitting up straight side by side. Fans fans and more fans. The biggest Windows on the first floor don't open making the house warm and unable to catch breezes. The beach close by was not great. Lousy sand. Like walking on gravel. The secluded beach referred to in other posts is really for sun bathers too rocky. Nice screen enclosed porch unless it rains. Water comes through the ceiling. Upside. Good for small family. Good water not that beachy smelly water you can get in some cape homes. Deck on second floor is great for viewing night sky. Great walking neighborhood. Beach is incredibly child friendly Lots of dog walkers in neighborhood, which is nice because the beaches are off limits no matter what almost every website says.

Beautiful Vacation

  • 4 of 5

Dear Mike,

We thoroughly enjoyed your home. It was very clean and ready for us when we arrived.

I think we especially enjoyed the close proximity to the lovely beach. The children loved the estuary, where they could collect various sea creatures.

We loved the screened-in porch where we enjoyed our meals and the fresh air. We also enjoyed the upstairs porch where we could view the ocean.

All in all, it was a lovely vacation and I would recommend your home to others seeking a Chatham vacation.

Right at Ridgevale Beach

  • 5 of 5

This home was in a GREAT location to Ridgevale Beach. It's about 100 feet from the parking lot, so it was easy to walk with kids, and bring toys and a kayak to the beach. It was also convenient for my family to walk back and forth to use the bathroom and to eat lunch. I liked the way the house is set up. There is a full bath downstairs and upstairs. It was convenient to have the washer/dryer upstairs across from the bathroom. You see views of the water and the marsh from the upstairs porch, so that's a great place to sit and drink coffee or have a glass of wine in the evening. The downstairs screened in porch was nice to play cards with our friends in the evening.

Chatham is the quintessential Cape Cod village with a beautiful tree-lined Main Street with quaint shops and restaurants. Ridgevale Beach is the perfect combination of ocean side and tidal basin estuary beaches. The ocean offers fresh breezes and gentle waves while the tidal side provides warm water with a gentle current flow and shallow sandy shoals teaming with tidal sea life. Ideal for ocean sailing and tidal kayaking. Ridgevale Beach has a snack bar for lunch and our beach house is close enough for bathroom breaks and afternoon naps. No need to use the Ridgevale beach parking ($), which also limits the number of beach goers. A private association wooden bridge is available to walk to a more secluded section of the beach.

Other Activities: Biplane flights available at Chatham Airport
