Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful week, the pool was a major hit. We have a family wedding in Alaska next August but will definitely keep your home in mind when planning our next excursion to the Cape.

Notes:
Our home is maintained with a minimum of chemicals. Sheets and towels are laundered without fragrance. We are on a septic system, so we encourage water and resource conservation, including composting. We provide information on attracting birds to the many feeders around the property. Cape Cod is an amazingly diverse environment, and much of it is available to you just sitting in the back yard, surrounded by mature trees and garden. We want to preserve that beauty and demonstrate that a luxury vacation need not be wasteful and environmentally depleting. We encourage you to join us in proving that point.

Great place for a wedding weekend

  • 5 of 5

Five-star stay. We booked this house for our son's wedding in Falmouth. The house was just what we needed. Everything was clean, stocked and the property was quiet. The owner answered every email quickly. Bring a lantern for the backyard if you want to swim at night.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great vacation at Alex's house. Everything was in good condition and very clean, and ready for us when we arrived. Check-in and -out were a breeze. The kitchen was well-appointed and had enough room for all of us to eat together. The beds were comfortable and bathrooms were plentiful and modern. We would try to rent this property again if we return to the Cape. Thank you, Alex!

Great location, private and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Alex was very kind and the house worked out very well for our family vacation. It was right down the street from Bebe Woods and the bike path. The backyard was very private and we loved the pool! It was exactly what we were looking for. Thanks Alex!

Our Cape Cod Experienc

  • 2 of 5

The location of this home is perfect, close to downtown and other popular destinations. We also loved the size of the pool. We had 13 people in our party and were excited to spend a week in Cape Code. The home, however, did not meet our expectations. The dining area only accommodated seven people. For lunch, dining wasn't a problem, since the rest of us sat outside. However, in the evening, it was tough to sit on the patio as there were lots of insects and a few of the patio chairs had holes or were worn. The grill worked well and it's a Weber. The kitchen is outdated as is all of the furniture in the living room and bedrooms. We were not able to all sit together in any rooms as it did not accommodate us. Our mattress was extremely old and uncomfortable. However, our bathroom was a good size with a large shower. No AC in this home. Our friends in the upstairs rooms were uncomfortable. We found fans in the basement, but not all of them worked and they were dusty. The windows had to be left open but then we had insects coming through. The basement was dark and had insects and cobwebs, not the arrangements I wanted for our children. There is also no 1/2 bathroom on the main floor, you must go to the basement or use the 3 that are attached to main bedrooms (1 main and 2 upstairs). I used the iron once and it leaked water everywhere. The coffee machine was broken. The property manager was contacted and he was responsive however, there was nothing he could do at that moment. The large pool is not heated, I suggest looking into a solar cover since heating is not an option. This house needs a major update and cleaning.
