girls get-away jan 2010

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from a mini-college reunion(25 yrs), 10 women flying solo for a long weekend, it couldn't have been any better! It is dead winter and we had plenty of options: spas, shops, restaurants(my favorite lunch @ the Impudent Oyster in Chatham), bars, or just stay in the house and enjoy the well designed space. Listing and pictures very accurate. We cooked a huge pasta dinner, played taboo on the large 10 seated dining room, had a wonderful fire blazing one nite, and hung out in the beautiful family room with 2 sets of sliders and a window overlooking a full length deck and very pretty backyard. There is a huge basement to play pool and ping pong if there is a rainy day. We brought 2 bean bag chairs so all 10 of us had a comfy seats. The open concept with the large kitchen with eat in breakfast table, worked out great for several women in the kitchen while still enjoying the conversations in family room, and no bumping into each other with the lengthy lay out. With 3.5 baths there was never an issue for use of a bathroom. Master bedroom has endless space. The ocean is accurately stated on site as .3 mile so the summertime would be optimal for this lovely vacation spot. There were also 2 ice cream shops at the end of the street for a nice summer stroll. Neighborhood is classy and private. This property works well for adults, but has many accommodations for children, I believe 2 large families, or 3 small families would be very happy here. Brian the owner checked in with me pre-during-and post vaca to make sure we had everything we needed, he was very friendly and very accommodating.

Great Golf Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Even though the weather was less than stellar (something about Hurricane Joaquin,) eight of us had a great time at the house and we especially made use of the large basement game room when we were rained out. Brian was also great to work with.

Week end get away to Harwich Port

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I traveled to Cape Cod to look at real estate. We rented the home on Schooner Drive for the week-end. The owner Brian was so very helpful right from the start. He made sure we arrived safely and that everything was to our liking. Brian also offered restaurant suggestions and nearby points of interest. The house was immaculate. Every room was so comfortable and inviting. We will definitely be recommending this home to our family and friends. Thank you Brian!

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

Simply Amazing!

My family and I stayed here on the weekend of my cousins wedding at the Wychmere Beach Club (perfect proximity, no more than 5 minutes drive), and the home was perfect. I am very detail oriented when it comes to vacation planning and this home was marvelous. The home is spacious and beautifully decorated in relaxing Cape colors of blue, yellows, and cream hues. It has upgraded appliances and an awesome game room in the basement. The pictures are very accurate

Brian the Owner: Special THANKS to the owner. Brian kept in contact throughout the entire process. He was assuring and accommodating, even calling to make sure we had arrived safely. Thank you!

We will be staying here again!

Great for a family gathering

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a family gathering over Christmas weekend, 3 adult siblings + families + grandparents (8 adults, 3 small children). It was pretty much perfect for what we were looking for, and nicer than the pictures indicate. Everything was clean and in good order. The kitchen was well stocked. The dining room table was big enough for a family dinner. And the beds were very comfortable.

The only caveat that I have for large groups is that the couches in the living room only seat about 7 adults comfortably - one more loveseat would have made it perfect for us. But that's a very minor point. There were additional seats in the nearby breakfast nook (just not as comfortable).

Brian was highly responsive throughout the entire process, and we knew from the start that we were in good hands. We would certainly stay there again.

Great family Rental!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental for a big or extended family vacation! Enough bedrooms and bathrooms for a big bunch with privacy for everyone. Close proximity to the beach and to route 28. The house has a great deck and dining room for big family meals and the kids love to play in the game room in the basement! Lots of amenities for a comfortable home-like stay and the owner is extremely helpful and accommodating. All of our guests loved their stay here and we look forward to returning with our family next year!

Only a short walk to Red River Beach, a beautiful section of shoreline on Nantucket Sound and close to town center with restaurants and shops and plenty of activities such as biking on the Cape Cod Railway bike path.

Close to Chatham and all that it has to offer including great ponds, beaches, shopping and dining. Let us know what you like to do and we can give you lots of information.
