Unique home on Cape Cod, a fresh water pond to enjoy lpeaceful views and 100 yards to a private beach on Nantucket Sound. Soft sand and gentle waves make this quiet street perfect for families. Close to downtown Hyannis and the harbor, you can walk or a short drive will get you to main attractions in the area. The house has large bedrooms, 3 upstairs with 2 bathrooms. Main floor has large living room, eat-in kitchen, and bedroom suite overlooking the pond. A small deck leads to a brick patio with grill. Patio is furnished with seating and tables for entertaining and enjoying views of the pond. Spend time at the beach or shop in the many stores on main street You may want to go to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard, the harbor is within walking distance. You don't have to spend your vacation in a car driving someplace, it's all in easy reach.
There were many factors that made this house perfect for our vacation. Most importantly, Peggy was wonderful to deal with and as a result, the whole experience was relatively stress free. The house itself, is spacious, clean and fully equipped. Our group consisted of my husband and I, our daughter, son-in-law and our 2 grandchildren aged 5 years and 2 1/2years and our son and future daughter-in-law. Each group had our own bathroom and all had our own bedroom (the children were in one room). The beach is 3 minutes down the road and for us, this made for the most wonderful family vacation. The house comes with beach chairs, umbrellas, cooler and even beach toys. Carrying some of these things plus having to hold onto 2 children can be daunting, but here, they could walk beside us, carrying their own little things and it was safe and fun. Having the outdoor shower to wash off all the sand was also nice. We walked to the marina to restaurants and to take the ferry to Nantucket; a walk easily managed by the 5 year old. We spent many evenings in the back garden enjoying the patio and barbecue. The house is spacious enough, that we never felt crowded, even on the one rainy day.
Our family of 5, with 3 kids age 3 through 8, had a fantastic 2-week stay in Peggy's house in July 2015.
First of all, the house itself is really large and all rooms have lots of space. So being only 5 people, we didn't even use all the different rooms. Also, everything in the house works well, and all you need for a perfect stay is available in the house. The house and surroundings were all very clean and nice.
The access to the private beach is very convenient, a short walk down the street. There was always plenty of space at the beach, and some week-days we had the entire beach all to ourselves.
We also visited the public Veteran's Park Beach, which is also short walking distance. We used the playground there some days, which was nice for the kids.
The garden area behind the house is very private, and we used it a lot for breakfasts and dinners. There was also a large gas grill there which we used several days.
Of course we also spent some days driving around Cape Cod, which was a great experience. One day we took the ferry to Nantucket, which was really nice.
We highly recommend Peggy's house to anyone visiting Cape Cod!
This house was terrific - just perfect for our family of 5. It is much bigger than looks on the pictures. The walk to the private beach is 3 minutes, a very easy one even for our 3-year old. The water is also the warmest we had ever experienced on the Cape in any location. We also walked with the kids to the marina with all the restaurants and ferries, and to the Main Street, everything is so close, so nice not to drive. The decor of the house is also spectacular, the owner thought through so many things. The owner is very generous, you don't need to bring anything to the house - the towels, beach toys, linens, beach chairs, everything is in abundance there. The owner is very easy to deal with also. We LOVED this property and hope to return.
This house was absolutely perfect for my family. It was clean, spacious and so close to the beach. There was never a problem with having to take showers because there were enough bathrooms for all of us! The outdoor patio was really nice and it was so relaxing to sit on the loungers and look out to the pond. The house was so close to the shops and it was nice to walk and not have to get into a car. Overall, we loved our stay at this beautiful home and hope to come back again.
This house was perfect from the moment we walked in the door : Spacious, bright, clean, kid friendly, beautiful.... It accommodated 6 adults and 2 kids 3 years and under with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Plenty of space at the dinning tables indoors and out. A few children items were there (booster seat, pack n play and sand toys) which meant less to pack. The outdoor space was great, we've stayed in many rentals and to have one with grass where our children could run around safely was great. This was our first trip to the cape so I had to get used to the fact that beach access doesn't mean activity access. It was a quiet street and safe for my 3 year old and husband to run around the block without the concern of traffic.
The beach was PRIVATE... We went in the early seasons but if there were 15 people on the beach (counting our group) that was a lot. Easy to get to and quick to get home for potty breaks with the little ones. We walked barefoot most beach days. We saw lots of ferries, boats and cargo going in and out of the harbor... Very exciting for a 3 yr old. He also loved the kite surfers and they were so friendly on the beach to teach us more about the sport.
My only con was there was no AC in the house part only bedrooms and the 1st floor AC unit flipped the breaker 2 times ( but my father who is an electrician was able to find a plug that was not on the same switch and it didn't happen again). It got hot when the sunshine came through the windows but there was also a nice breeze.
We look forward to going back.....
This was a fabulous vacation home! Everything you could possible want was provided. The house was clena and extremetly well stocked! The location near the beach was ideal, and the beautifuly landscaped backyard was just perfect! Everyone in our family of 10 was comfortable and we all enoyed our week so very much. The owner was lovely to work with. We highly reccommend this home, but don't take it on the week we want to come back!!
