About Paul J. Thurston
As a family, we love everything Cape Cod! This is the place where we have quality time to get together to relax and play. We love planning our annual fishing charter for friends and family, cookouts, hitting the Beachcomber and and being able to make out every star in the big, dark sky at night. This year we will be welcoming our first grandchild to splash in the pool and climb the 4 way oak!
Paul J. Thurston purchased this House in 1982

Return Renter - Truly a magnificent property
We had such a great experience last year, we returned again this year to help celebrate our Aunt's 93rd Birthday. We even hosted a pre-Thanksgiving Dinner for our small group as part of that celebration. The house is very well equipped with all the needed plates, bowls and cutlery and we did not need to buy anything to be able to serve a nice dinner. Especially enjoyed the ambiance of the dinning room and it's gas fireplace.
The location is perfectly situated close to both the beach and bicycle paths. Beds are very comfortable and provide a great nights sleep. Paul is extremely pleasant to work with and makes renting a breeze. We hope to return next year.
Perfect home offered by wonderful owners
One might conclude that I just can't say enough about Thirst Inn considering this is my third review of the property. I just wanted to post another review to keep the site up to date with a review dated 2016. Year after year, we continue to be thrilled to return and we are never disappointed. Everything in my previous reviews remains the same, making this the PERFECT home for a family vacation. I've neglected to mention in previous reviews a note about the owners. We have dealt solely with Paul through the years, but know that he and Katie are a TEAM. Her artwork throughout the home demonstrates her love for the area and adds a personal touch. She is a talented artist. She and Paul make this home a place of comfort and warmth. Our interactions with Paul, beginning in the fall to book for next summer and continuing with the follow-up during our stay, are always pleasant and genuine. Again, the feeling of warmth comes through. Thank you Katie and Paul for sharing your wonderful home.
The Perfect Home
I spent months combing through all the rentals ads. There are alot of poorly maintained rental homes on the Cape many of which offer worn out furniture and little amenities. We narrowed the list to our top three and Thirst Inn just seemed to have everything we expected. The Thirst Inn was an exceptional choice. The home is located very near the beach but tucked away down a side street which is wooded and very private. The home is situated on a large lot with a sweeping front lawn and old oak trees. The first morning a group of 8 wild turkeys strutted across the yard from one end to other and returned each morning there after for their daily parade. How Cape Cod.
The Thirst Inn was incredibly clean and ready for us upon our arrival. The owners Paul and his wife have done a great job decorating the home with quality furnishings and beautiful paintings, many of which are painted by Paul's wife. The furniture is very nice quality and very comfortable. Having the main house and guest house afforded four adults plenty of space and privacy. (Yes, work sometimes follows you on vacation and the WIFI was outstanding.) The heated pool was terrific and supported by new equipment. It was a welcomed treat after a day of sightseeing.
Before, during and after, the owner Paul was great to work with. As the great host that he is, Paul was very responsive, accommodating and professional. I look forward to my next stay! Peter who maintains the yard and pool was also very pleasant and helpful. Put Thirst Inn at the top of your list!
Katie and I appreciate your kind words and are so happy that you enjoyed your vacation.
Perfect in every way.
Have found the perfect girls get away retreat! House is immaculate.Pool refreshing and clean. Space for all to enjoy a quiet restful week but close enough to many local restaurants and activities. We will be back. Thank You.
It was with great pleasure that we could provide a restful vacation to six hard working medical professionals. Thank you for your hard work in saving lives daily.
