Guestbook comments from the owner

Renting a house you have never seen can be a haunting experience. My daughter and I recently did this and it turned out to be a wonderful experience.

Dealing with John Glennon who was most helpful with his suggestions, recommendations of places to see, beaches to wander and restaurants to go to made our visit to the Cape a joyful experience.

If you like to cook - this is your place! A fully equipped kitchen that made cooking there a pleasure. You want a clean house - you have it. It is certainly a comfortable house for adults but a family would certainly appreciate all there is to enjoy. The views from the rooftop deck, out to the harbor, are ever changing. Don't forget to schedule your day to be there for the sunsets. They are magnificent!

Thanks, John, for being so welcoming, sharing your knowledge of Wellfleet and your friendly suggestions helped to give us a special time together, in a special place and certainly a time to remember

We hope to return in 2012.

So comfortable and welcoming. We took in the sunsets nightly - loved being right near the water and the view is beautiful. This house had everything my family and I (hubby and 3 kids) needed and were looking for to ensure a relaxing and enjoyable time away. The owner is responsive, professional, and helpful! The Wellfleet beaches were amazing and the town is quaint. I would highly recommend and would return.

Looking forward to next time!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this home during the summer of 2014. The house was everything we had expected and the views were more impressive in person.

The house was clean and perfectly maintained. I was initially attracted to the house because of the views. I felt even more comfortable after speaking to the homeowner on the phone and reviewing all of the pictures on his website. He was very clear about what I could expect when using his house and it was exactly as he described. The location was perfect for us. It's a 1 minute walk to a private bay beach, walking distance to town and a five minute car ride to the ocean beaches. The kids loved exploring the private beach. My husband and I loved watching the sunset from the top deck and eating our dinner on the screened in porch. Thanks! We hope to return soon!

I stayed at this house with my husband and kids. The accommodations were very nice and comfortable. The screened porch and deck were amazing! It was fantastic living on the water for the week and being so close to all that Wellfleet has to offer. The location was quiet and located on a hill top over looking beautiful Wellfleet Harbor. It is steps to a private beach. The owner takes good care of the home and made sure we had everything we needed.

My family and I had an amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

My family enjoyed our vacation staying in this family friendly home! The house is kept clean and organized. The views of Wellfleet Harbor are outstanding! My family spent countless hours gazing out at the water, barbecuing, playing games on the screened porch, hiking on the beach, walking to town, sunsets, ping pong, outdoor shower, and on and on. We truly loved everything about this house and its location. We highly recommend staying here and made wonderful memories. Thank you!

We can't say enough about the beauty and perfection of this gorgeous home. It was a wonderful and memorable stay-- totally spotless throughout, every amenity you could want, and a spectacular view. The location is perfect, so private in a quiet neighborhood setting right on the water. The beach was excellent for the kids. We all enjoyed early morning strolls along the bay, watching the wildlife and skipping stones. It's like a secret little haven on the Cape, no traffic, just the right distance off of Route 6 so you can get away from it all, but without being too isolated. It was so convenient. We visit the Cape about 3-4 times a year, and this stay has definitely been the highlight of the past few years! John was awesome to deal with, very informative and quick to answer any inquiries. Thanks for the memorable experience, John!

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in the upper cape and the house was exactly what we needed. The location is great since it is really not that far from anything we wanted to do. We did not have an agenda, just wanted a place where we could reconnect with our two college-aged children and be a family. Whale watching was great. The beaches are beautiful. For the most part, we were ahead of the busy season. The property was clean and the owners were very nice and very helpful. We did discover that the no-see-ums kept us off the upstairs deck at dusk if you were wearing shorts. You can cover up with long pants/sleeves or a blanket. Also, since linens and towels are not provided with the home, we had to bring along an extra suitcase just for linens for the four of us. We discovered the Furies literally just around the corner that rents linens and towels and more. For the cost of an extra suitcase round trip, you can rent what you need with no hassle. They also provide a cleaning service if you don't want to clean up yourself when you leave. Great seafood wherever you go on the cape. Nice people everywhere. I would definitely recommend this home.
