Excellent value

  • 4 of 5

Mary and John's home is a typical "salt box" in the mid-Cape. We've been staying in Brewster for years and decided to "downsize" with a rental in Harwich. Their home is clean, well stocked for cooking, and has all appliances to make life convenient. Location is top notch because of proximity to the Cape Cod bike trail. Area is quiet and neighborhood is good for children. If you like the mid-Cape you will find their home comfortable. The only drawback is the common living area (living room /kitchen) is small and the outdoor area is too. If you are using the house to sleep and some late night after-dinner drinks, it is perfect. If your family is home by 6:00 PM and cooks most of their meals, the living space is a little tight.The home is an excellent value because of the area it is in, that is why we think it deserves four stars.

Nice and clean house at beautiful Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

Communication with owner was great, and everything was like described. House was (very) clean, and with everything we needed. Our kids loved the tabletennis in the basement! Security deposit was returned within a short while after our stay. If I should mention one thing that could have been improved, it would be the airconditionunits which were noisy (especially the one in the master bedroom).

Owner's Response: We recently replaced the air conditioner unit in the master bedroom with a quiet Haier Serenity Series unit and will replace the other bedroom units.

Comfortable, clean and charming home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The incredible clean and charming home made our lovely Cape Cod vacation all that more enjoyable. It is very well stocked and the owners leave meticulous instructions throughout the house. We will likely be returning.

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

This home was more than adequately stocked and well maintained. The owners were very helpful and did everything possible to make us comfortable. There was a mix up with the cleaning crew and they came the second day but the home was fairly clean to begin with and our cleaning fee was refunded. The grill broke and was replaced almost immediately.

The location was central to many trails, restaurants and towns. It is in a quiet neighborhood with quick access to the main highway on Cape Cod. Boston, Provincetown and Martha's Vineyard were all within 1 1/2 hours. Maybe it was a fluke but we experienced very little traffic aside from normal commuter traffic.

We would return to this property!

Best rental we ever had

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best rental we have ever had. Beautiful, very clean and comfortable house. Mary Koteles is a very nice host. She was very helpful since we arrived on a wednesday and left on a monday afternoon.

More than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Having been on the Cape before, we decided to rent a home (two of us) this time. The homeowners went out of their way to be sure this house has everything you will need. We have rented homes around the world and this house has it all. We have never seen a home somwell equiped and all the items we brought were never unpacked. While we didn't have babies in tow, we were impressed with all the items included for them too!

The location is perfect, quiet, yet well located. The house is equipped with all you will need. And there are plantynof places nearbynto shop or deliver should you want to skip cooking. The local food store is a real market where the prices are reasonable.

We enjoyed walking to Long Pond, and were also very near the bike trail. The outdoor shower was enjoyed a lot. It truly felt like home, yet we were away from it all. The house was lovely and shows true pride and love by the owners. We especially liked having a music system available for our use.

We also appreciated the guide book with lots of info to help us along. While we've been to the Cape before, it was full of helpful tips, many we didn't know!

Mary & John were wonderful. All our questions were answered with no issues. And we look forward to visiting again.

Harwich is a delightful town on the lower Cape that offers spectacular beaches and fresh water ponds for swimming and boating. The Cape Cod Rail Trail follows a former railroad right-of-way for 22 miles through 6 local towns. Its paved surface, few hills, and well-marked automobile crossings make it ideal for cyclists, runners, walkers, and horseback riders. Quality restaurants abound as well as 'Home Made' Ice Cream shops. Many antique and gift shops are located nearby on Rte 6A and Rte 28. There are many local live theatre groups within a 30 minute drive. Provincetown is a center for the arts and offers numerous galleries and boutique shops as well as lots of local color.
