About Jim & Regina Augat
We love living in Bass River just a walk to the beaches with our 2 children whom have grown up as our little beach-bums! LOL We offer an open invitation Saturday nights to our fire pit after check-in to anyone that doesn't have evening plans & looking to relax and laugh! (weather permitting) We bought back in 2005 and have spent each year improving our property and the 2 cottage rentals. It's a great property and we are proud to offer you a renovated & clean place to enjoy your vacation. Regina & I sell real estate year-round here on the Cape so feel free to ask us any questions if you've been thinking about real estate and investing for your future here on the Cape.
Jim & Regina Augat purchased this Cottage in 2005
Why Jim & Regina Augat chose South Yarmouth
We have decorated and updated our 2 cottages as if we were staying in them ourselves! We are always trying to improve them to offer you a great Cape Cod vacation experience. Plus we are always looking for our renters feedback to see what we missed or could improve upon.

Friendly but lacking
The owner seemed very proud of his property and tried very hard to be friendly. He messaged us asking about our personal life, texted us day of flight telling us to download an app, and was there when we arrived. His personal residence was connected to the rental property which appeared to be under construction or something.
The house smelled very heavily like mold and mildew. When I turned on the bedroom light my hand went through dusty cobwebs and there were visible cobwebs connecting the shade and lamp. The lamp flickered really strangely. The white couch already had some markings etc.
The owner came over later that day to bring sheets for the pull out couch. They smelled very heavy of detergent so I knew they were clean, but they had piling, small spots, etc.
We rented linens. Again we had to contact the owner for wash clothes. My husband took a shower and draped his white towel over the shower curtain bar. When I pulled it down it was covered in dirty dust.
The first night the ants started to arrive. Ants in kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms. Ants crawling all over kitchen counters. I woke up to dead smashed ants in the bed. (After we returned home, the owner tried to charge us for ruined bed sheets. I’m assuming this is why?)
I placed my suitcase in the bedroom closet on a suitcase rack and left the door open.It rained all night and all my pants and underwear were damp. Again contacted owner he came over looked around at ceiling. With prompting the owner offered to wash my damp clothes.
The next day his teenage daughter brought them over neatly folded with all my underwear displayed right on top. She got a real giggle out of it. I had to call owner again as a shirt was missing.
Owner said sweep, take out trash, leave it the way we found it. I swept. Left the used sheets with dead ant guts. I left the towels hanging in the bathroom. I tried to leave the dust bunnies and cobwebs in tact.
We have used vrbo for 5 years. I have never met a home owner. I don’t want to meet the home owner. I didn’t tell the home owner these things and I didn’t want to write a review. He seemed proud of his place. You win some you loose some. Other people seemed happy with him and his home. I should have taken pictures. I’m grateful for others reviews and their personal pictures. I just wanted to go on vacation and not get upset, so I made friends with the ants.
Clean, comfortable and convenient.
We enjoyed our stay!
Cute efficient space
We were down for a large get together and the location was perfect. Space was clean , nicely decorated, quiet, and perfect for two adults. However it would be nice to have a set of cutlery vs plastic to prepare food. Not a big issue, we didn’t have any meals there but making a salad was a challenge cutting vegetables.
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us...we too love the location!
We are sorry you did not find all the utensils in the drawer marked “Open for Utensils” or texted me to ask. We have a large selection of everything you would need and then some!
We hope to see you again Wendy
My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and had an amazing time. The cottage is updated and clean. Jim and Regina were very accommodating and
always available for questions. The bed was much softer then we are used to, but that would not stop us from staying again!
Really enjoyed our stay
Perfect cottage. Would definitely stay again
Lovely hosts and cottage
Warm welcome and when we told them we had live lobsters in our cooler, we quickly got loaded up with pot, crackers and dishes for butter.
It is convenient to 3 beaches. We spent one day going ip to the tip of Cape Cod, which was fun.
The cottage is very clean and the air conditioner is a HUGE plus.
Loved our stay.
If you are not familiar with the Bass River area it's a village of South Yarmouth and the most sort after area in Yarmouth for its beaches. Located between Bass River and Parkers River with 6 public beaches to pick from, it's a short .5 mile walk to 3 of those public ocean beaches and just a bit further to the others. We are centrally located 1 1/2 hours to either Boston or Provincetown (the furthest tip of Cape Cod). We have many amenities around us starting with the 6 public beaches plus several mini golf, Cape Cod Mall (for those rainy days), Whale watch boat trips, Fast ferries to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard, and the new Inflatable & Water Park plus The Whydah Pirate Museum and so much more!
