This charming home is a great location for your Falmouth vacation!
This property is charming, well maintained, and has all the comforts of home. It fit our needs perfectly, and for a very reasonable price! For a couple of days we had 8 people sharing the house and we were all very comfortable. The neighborhood is nice and quiet, and it's a short drive to any number of beaches and other Cape Cod attractions. The owner is fantastic - very hospitable and quick to respond to all questions. I would definitely recommend this property!
We had such a great time at this house. It was clean, comfortable and had everything you could possible need for a vacation on Cape Cod. Nancy goes out of her way to make you feel at home and you really feel like a guest. Can't wait to stay again next year!
