About Kelly

With family roots in Falmouth, we love spending time there! When our twins were born, we found visiting family became a real challenge. One day we were staying with family and saw an ad in the paper that caught our eye. We had no plans to buy a second home, but the house looked so cute that we figured we'd check it out. We instantly fell in love with it! And, we loved the idea of having a place to stay when we visited. That one unsuspecting day started us on the path of becoming vacation homeowners. We've been renting our home for about 10 years now and have had the opportunity to speak with and share our home with so many fascinating and kind people. We look forward to continuing to share our wonderful home and hope you will love it as much as we do!

Kelly purchased this house in 2006

Why Kelly chose Falmouth

When we bought the house we were visiting with family and had no plans to buy a house. We instantly fell in love with the location and idea of having a place to stay so we could visit family more often. Now our children have a sense of where their father was raised and we're able to visit with cousins and grandparents frequently.

What makes this house unique

In addition to the convenience of having linens included, our house is ideally located! It's a short walk to Falmouth Heights Beach, the Island Queen Ferry, and Falmouth Harbor. We love spending time downtown with our kids, enjoying the great restaurants, ice cream stands, farmer's markets, etc. After a long day at the beach, the yard is a flat, shady and very private retreat for relaxation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location was perfect for us -- a short walk to the beach and close enough to downtown that we could walk there too. The neighborhood is quiet and there is plenty of seating in the backyard with a BBQ grill. We had lots of bikes and gear with us that we were able to lock up in the shed.

The cottage itself is clean and well-maintained with good-sized rooms that offer comfort and privacy. The washer and dryer was appreciated too. We have been coming to Falmouth for several summers and this was one of the nicest rentals -- highly recommended.

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. We were traveling with another family and had a total of 4 kids 3 and under. The two master bedrooms made life simple. The house is lovely and very clean. The backyard is a perfect size for bbqing and hanging out. Less than a 10 min walk to the beach and that is with strollers and a wagon trucking all the things little ones need at the beach!

Johnson Street is around the corner from Worcester Court, which is one of the main access ways to Falmouth Heights Beach. You get the benefits of close proximity to the beach and the privacy of a small, quiet neighborhood. Falmouth Heights Beach is a short walk of about 4/10ths of a mile from the house. The house is ideally located, convenient not only to the beach but you can also walk to the Island Queen Ferry if you’re planning to visit Martha’s Vineyard, the Pier 37 boat docks at Falmouth Harbor, ice cream stands, restaurants and lots more! Several award wining public golf courses are a quick drive, including Ballymeade and Cape Cod Country Club.
