Centerville House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Full Bathroom, Sleeps 6+, New furnishings throughout!!

Welcome to Horseshoe Lane! A charming, private, family friendly location for your vacation away. Nestled along an upper scale lane, this home has been fully updated and is now booking for summer 2016. Last year we booked up quickly so make sure to contact us early! This summer getaway is for the guest with discerning taste and offers a light, bright and relaxing atmosphere. Spend time out on your deck overlooking the salt water marsh, or take a stroll to the village for some famous Four Seas ice cream. All amenities such as shopping, package store and restaurants are just minutes away. For those that love the ocean, a scenic walk of 6-7 minutes lands your feet in the sand. Spectacular sunrises and sunsets are found each morning and afternoon. There are activities for both families and couples alike. Take the family on a whale watching tour, or to the beach. Maybe a romantic ferry ride for you and that special someone to the Island of Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard for a day of shopping and site seeing.

Pictures of Renovated Home: The home's interior is decorated in a nautical/seaside style. The floor plan is very open concept, and guests will surely find each area of the home inviting. A Beach Pass will be provided granting you free access to all 17 Barnstable Beaches. We have made our best attempt to provide everything that you could need for an enjoyable vacation. Should you have any special requests for items that are not listed above please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs. Being from Cape Cod, we truly appreciate this location and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

Why Mark Hansen chose Cape Cod

Property is true walk to beach and village. Feels like you're far from the hustle and bustle, but in reality you're only 10 min from everything. Shopping, dining, nightlife, beaches.

What makes this house unique

Beach pass included. Cleaning included. Laundry at property.

A very nice house, very clean and well-maintained. We had a great time. The house was exactly as described and shown on pictures. We spent a week with young children and it was very comfortable.

The owners gave us a very good costumer service. Everything we needed was available.

Only few minutes from the beach. We didn't need the car for our daily activities.

We recommend this property without any hesitation!

very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

we rent for two weeks in august 2008 with our two kids (2 and 3 years old). the house is exactly as described, tastefully decorated, thouroughly maintained and with every facilities provided. Check-in process took place only the day after arrival, and after a long drive and a late arrival, we very much appreciated to be allowed to spend the first night at the house, without having even seen the owner and fill in any forms.

The best surprise is the owner himself. Very kind and very helpful. When we need him, he always come within 2 or 3 hours to help. He rent a house he bought and refurbish himself and is very anxious renters appreciate the result.

Location is very nice and neighbourghood very very quiet. The 10 mn walk beach is really great and the resident pass for free parking provided by the owner was fine.

You have a playground for children within a 5 mn walk from the house and a great sweets shop also. on the contrary, the house is located in an area without restaurant or bar and you'll have to take the car to go top the nearest town (about 10 mn drive). But once more the owner was very helpful and propose us to get a babysitter from his own family to allow us a free evening.

We would have come back without any hesitations this year, but as we are in north america for only two years we chose to vacation in the west coast this year....

We hope the house will have the success, it deserves.

Perfect weekend in a perfect house!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I (7 adults and one infant) thoroughly enjoyed our short weekend getaway from Boston - due in large part to this amazing house! From the moment we stepped in, we were impressed with the immaculate care and detail that clearly went into making this a warm and cozy place to relax on the cape.

It was like staying at a high-end hotel - the rooms, including the beds, were extremely comfortable, the bathrooom was pristine, the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed and we enjoyed the deck and grill for most of our meals. We also got great use of the beach chairs, boards, etc and even took the bikes out for a spin around the neighborhood.

The location was perfect for us as well. Nice stroll or quick drive to the beach and central for visits to other parts of the cape and islands.

Mark and Jacqueline went above and beyond to accomodate our needs. They were always accessible and attentive to our needs. We appreciated the fact that they were willing to rent to us for just one night. Not only did they accomodate an early checkin, but they were happy to let us enjoy the house for the entire next day. It was hard to leave...

We will certainly be back and will be recommending it to our friends.

We felt at home immediately

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 5) spent 2 weeks in July 2008 in the house right after obviously thorough rework had just been finished. We were completely satisfied and it was really hard to leave this wonderful place.

All information we had gotten up front was correct. Communication with the owner was quick and very pleasant. In the rare cases we needed support the owner responded and/or showed up immediately.

The house is very well equipped. The kitchen was in fact so well equipped and it was so much fun to cook there that we never went out for dinner. The house was perfectly clean. Many details show that the owners (successfully) try to make guests feel welcome and at home right from the start. For example they provided for a start of suncream, some bottled water, washing powder, bug repellant etc.

The place is located in a quiet street within 15 minutes walking distance to the beach. The beach is well suited for children because the water is mostly calm and warm and shallow. A parking permit was included which allowed us to use "resident only" parking places. There are nice opportunities for running and walking. A very good grocery store is within 5 minutes driving distance.

We can certainly recommend the place.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having this family as our guests. They left the home in immaculate condition and were very accomidating considering this was a first season rental. It would be our hopes to have them stay with us again in the future. The estimated walk to the beach is the renters account and ranges from 7-15 minutes depending on pace. It is our goal to continually improve our property and we look forward to inquiries for the 2009 Season.

We are nestled in the heart of the Craigville Beach district of Centerville. All roads from the home lead to either shops, beaches or tourist attractions. Beautiful homes line the surrounding streets, stroll to Ice cream shops, authentic Country stores, and Craigville beach. Across from the beach are two eatery stands to purchase summer delights!
