we left early & we never leave early...

  • 1 of 5

We didn't expect a 5-star hotel or anything, so a little dust is fine with us, it's just that the cottage really didn't seem to be cared for at all. Everything seemed run down & in need of a lot of cleaning and updating. The pictures online didn't quite match the cottage & it was very off-putting. There were old/outdated extension cords and power strips everywhere which seems like a fire hazard, random items like signs and electronics duct taped to the walls and other electronics, patches in the walls that had never been painted, cabinet doors missing in the kitchen, even a chisel stabbed into the ceiling as a handle for the attic door. We were also nervous about the code to the key pad on the door not being updated after every visit. We didn't really feel safe being there or leaving our belongings in the cottage at all.

Then, on top of that, we just didn't get a good feeling from the place. I know that may sound a little subjective, but even our dog didn't behave normally the entire time we were there. He had constant anxiety & could not calm himself down. He's an 8.5 year old dog and we've brought him to several other rentals. He has always been calm and relaxed within the first 5-10 minutes in a new place. All three of us just had a bad feeling while we were there.

It was a very stressful time, where normally that's the exact opposite of how we feel in these situations, which is why we decided to cut our anniversary getaway short and leave early.

Owner's Response: 75%% of my summer renters have been returning happily & faithfully for several years. They love it at the cottage! Guests have related to me that there dogs get happily excited when they approach the house as they realize that they are going to be spending happy joy filled days at a favorite place. The cottage has a new roof and is being painted completely inside and out in the Spring . . It is the perfect location for bike riding on the nearby 35 mile long bike path that is a quarter mile up the road , is paved, and leads to First Encounter beach (1 and ½ miles away on the Bay side) as well as Coast Guard an Nauset Beach (on the Atlantic ocean side) in Eastham ( 2 and ½ miles). People are very happy to vacation in a nice quiet house twhere they easily relax hat is close to everything they like yet is down a beautiful country road in a quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of modern day living. The cabinet that holds the dishes had no door on it because many people prefer to be able to see inside the cabinet & get in and retrieve the dishes etc. with ease. Neverthe less I think I will replace that door in the Spring. The living room now has a very large carpet on it (moms with small kids like that) because it’s a soft landing for the kids if they get rambunctious on a vacation. Sometimes people rearrange be furniture in the living room or bedroom and it may be very slightly different but pretty darn close to the pics on the websites and the rest is completely accurate. A few electrical power strips with built in circuit breakers are there to provide extra outlets for families who have many cell phones, laptops etc. so they can easily recharge their devices. There are no outdated extension cords there. A few notes attached to the side of the refrigerator to conveniently explain to guests where the nearest beaches, bike trail, etc. are. A note taped to the top of the tv informs guests about the easy use of the local tv remote control choices. There is a cover ( in the hallway ceiling ) over attic drop down stair entrance . Years ago I removed the handle to dissuade adventurous teens from getting into the attic. A small screw driver is usually used to insert between the dropdown stair cover to the attic and the frame around it so it can pry open the access cover + the stairs can be unfolded to be used to climb into the attic(owner only) . People like the relaxed atmosphere of the house and don’t have to worry about being extra caref

Alway's have a great time at the Cape!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is in a great location, convenient to beaches , restaurants, everything you could want...but also far enough away to have some quiet and privacy. The cottage is fully equipped and comfortable. Having spent every summer of my childhood in Eastham and trips yearly throughout life, it's is my favorite town on the cape; it brings back the best memories of childhood being there. My only complaint was the beds were not comfortable at all and neither of us slept the first night on the mattresses, but we made the best of it. Had some great meals, spent every day at the beach with our Labs who loved swimming and running on the beach; off season makes that a much easier possibility. Look forward to going back again next year. Overall, a great vacation!

Charming Cottage in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and felt instantly like home. The surrounding area was woods, but we were only a 5 min drive to first encounter beach. We would definitely stay here again

A joy in Eastham

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at David's home. The cottage was as expected and is perfect for a beach getaway! The location is great. It is right near the rail trail and the beaches- couldnt' ask for better. The cottage was clean and had all the amenities we needed. We would love to stay again sometime in the future!
