Perfect escape! A beautiful, well-equipped home to enjoy a getaway!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a girls' weekend. The location was excellent and perfect for beach, restaurants, and access to the best the Cape has to offer. The house is clean and beautifully decorated. The wrap around porch was a favorite. We spent a rainy morning sitting on the porch rockers. Definitely hope to stay again!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Cape Cod area and staying in this lovely home made it absolutely perfect! The house was clean, well maintained, nicely decorated and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. I loved enjoying my coffee each morning while rocking on the porch and taking walks through the neighborhood and down to the beach. I would definitely recommend this home to my friends and family.

My sister was visiting me from California and had never been to the Cape. I wanted her to experience Cape Cod's unique charm and Diane and Wayne's beautiful home provided the perfect experience. The home is exceptionally clean and the beds are extremely comfortable. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed to cook meals at the house. There are also a number of wonderful restaurants nearby. We enjoyed numerous short walks to the beach and many cups of coffee rocking lazily on the wrap around porch. Charming! I recommended this home to my mother and father from CA, they had a wonderful stay as well. We will definitely return and hope this wonderful cottage will be available on our next visit.

• Good location close to sea and 10 min drive from shops.

• Spacious house with good air conditioning.

• Good kitchen appliances, acknowledging broken microwave which was fixed promptly during our visit.

• Good off street parking.

• Good wifi.

• Bedrooms and bathrooms perhaps soon in need of some refurbishment, furniture and beds seemed rather old.

• A little disappointed to find plastic, as opposed to glass, wine glasses.

• Poor selection of cutlery, from memory there were 5 forks, none of which matched and all from different sets.

• BBQ gas ran out towards the end of our visit, having used it 3 times, despite assurances prior to our visit that gas supply would be checked.

• Broken toilet seat in ground floor was not terribly hygienic.

• Lack of local information pack was unusual, e.g. maps, suggested restaurants, location of shops etc.

• Left with a feeling of a ‘business transaction’, rather than ‘welcome to our home’, e.g. a financial penalty for every 15 mins late on departure.

The owner indicates these observations are being addressed..

Owner's Response: This is the first time that we have heard any complaints about wine glasses or silver ware. We replenish any missing or broken items at the first of the season and there were two full sets of glass wine glasses, with steams and stemless as well as a set of plastic wine glasses. The furniture and beds were all brand new 6 years ago and only get used for 8-10 weeks during the summer. The only bed that is older than that is the king bed and we get compliments on how comfortable it is due to the feather bed top that we added. Broken toilet seat happened the week before this guest and it was replaced with one that did not fit, so our housekeeper decided not to interfere with this guests week and waited to change it out the next Saturday. Same with the microwave which was scheduled while this guest was there. The gas tanks (there are two) are filled at the beginning of the season and each guest is supposed to fill the tank when they leave. There is a station just 3/4 of a mile at the end of our street that will fill and charge just what was used. Even this guest didn't do that. The gas is not included, but should always be full. We don't like anyone to go away feeling like they were not comfortable, but this is a property that is rented all summer long.

Just what my family needed!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this home! It was perfect and so relaxing. The house was very clean and the neighborhood was quiet which is alway a plus. Seagull beach was a blast and only a 10 minute bike ride down the road. The porch was a great bonus as I enjoyed coffee and breakfast there each morning! The house had everything you could need and was accommodating to my large family. Definitely will stay here again in the future!!!

Cape Cod at its best!

  • 5 of 5

If you are seeking an amazing and unforgettable Cape Cod Experience, look no further than this Cottage! Our stay was perfect in every way. Having spent many summers in Cape Cod as a child, the location was an obvious selling point. The ocean is a minute walk away, downtown Hyannis is effortlessly accessible, and adventuring to Dennis, Harwich, and Chatham is a breeze. The charm and comfort of this home is remarkable! The place is spotless with beautiful hardwood floors, fluffy beds, and an immense kitchen. We found ourselves so eager to return at the end of the day and just enjoy the accommodations. The owners could not be more friendly and helpful. A modernized coded entry eliminated the hassle of a key and it was quite clear with every detail that the quality of our stay was very important to them. We look forward to renting again very soon and would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for the ultimate Cape Cod experience!
