About Tom & Ali

We are Ali and Tom. We designed and built this house in our favorite area in the world. We are life-long hospitality professionals and currently own and operate the Lamb and Lion Inn, also in Barnstable Village, which has been rated the #1 mid-Cape Inn for 9 years running. Prior to owing the Lamb and Lion we owned a AAA 4-Diamond, Relais & Chateaux property (located in the Hudson Valley, NY). Our love of hospitality is felt by our house guests with free self-guided driving tours, discount island and whale watch tickets and restaurant recommendation. Ali has spent many years in and around professional kitchens and Tom is an award-winning food writer--so we've "got your back" when it comes to dining (although you might just want to grill out on the waterfront deck!). Check out the house website for more photos, location info and a virtual house tour! www.HarborviewCapeCod.com

Tom & Ali purchased this House in 2001

Why Tom & Ali chose Barnstable Village

There are many house in this neighborhood that are very close to one another, but our house has LOTS of space on both sides, including a large side yard for spreading out!. The beach (which is our "front lawn") is steps away. The mid-Cape location cannot be beat, short walk to dining and shops, and great "extras"--like self-guided driving tours at your finger tips, and use of the Lamb and Lion Inn's salt-water, solar-heated pool and hot tub.

What makes this House unique

Directly on a pet-friendly, private beach. Use of heated salt-water pool nearby (summer months only). 3 cozy gas fireplace stoves and a heated master bedroom floor in the cooler months. Large playroom with pool table, ping pong, work-out equipment. Cozy library with lots of books. Water views in every room in the house (watch sunrises AND sunsets!). Walk to whale watch boat (and deeply discounted tickets). Check out www.HarborviewCapeCod.com for a full house tour.

                                                                        John, Thank you so much for your raves. I wish you lived closer than Ireland so you could visit more often. I know you would love it at Christmas when all the fireplaces are going and sometimes you can see seals floating by on ice caps. We'll see you next year!

                                                                        Ali and Tom


                                                                        Ali P.

                                                                        You couldn't find a more perfect location or a more comfortable home.

                                                                        Breathtaking Beach House

                                                                        Donna T.

                                                                        My friends and I went to stay at this home after it was booked by another friend as a surprise. Upon arrival, we were flabbergasted to find this beautiful home was on the water.

                                                                        Upon entering, you were immediately taken by the calming decor and color choices. You could see just about every amenity you'd need in the first few steps into the door.

                                                                        The house is a very pleasant size. It was large enough for us all to feel we had our own space but it didn't sacrifice coziness.

                                                                        Every room had a view of the water but my favorite was the Turtle Room. It was the most exciting to explore as it had so many fun details to stumble upon.

                                                                        I so enjoyed the landscaping that once I returned home, I tried to find one of the ornamental grasses to plant in my own yard.

                                                                        There was something to do all around us in Barnstable. We could see the Sandy Neck Lighthouse across the channel. When we drove off in one direction, we went on a whale watch. When we drove off in the other direction, we ate at amazing restaurants. The owners were also happy to give us suggestions on where we should go to eat and find entertainment.

                                                                        We would absolutely book again.

                                                                        Spectacular views and exceptional property!

                                                                        Samantha S.

                                                                        This was our 2nd trip to beautiful Barnstable harbor, and it was even better than the 1st. The weather was fabulous that week and being at this beautiful location was the icing on the cake. The views are stunning and if you are looking for the most relaxing place to spend your time, this is it! The house is located in the perfect spot: private beach, quiet neighborhood, and close enough to explore all that the Cape has to offer. The house itself is exceptional, with plenty of space for all, decorated beautifully, yet extremely comfortable. It has everything you would want, from a spacious, open kitchen, 2 large decks overlooking the water, outdoor shower, to a quiet reading nook. We have also been there during the off season, and it is still a restful and relaxing haven that you won't want to leave!

                                                                        Truly the best place you will ever have a vacation

                                                                        John O.

                                                                        Down a quiet road-the sea a few steps away, safe enough for toddlers to play and grown ups to sunbathe.

                                                                        Great porch to gently swing ,have a coffee in the early morning sun or a glass of wine at sunset,really great views all day.Comfy beds and lots of fluffy towels.The house is so nice it's hard to leave it to enjoy the great local restaurants and explore the locality.Very well equipped-

                                                                        Tvs cable internet and magnificent kitchen.Great family

                                                                        Have visited as a couple,with friends and with family

                                                                        All of our guests have been as happy here as we are.

                                                                        Next year will be our fifth return and we have already booked our two weeks.We have never had any problems

                                                                        But it's nice to know the owners are only a phone call away and are experienced Innkeepers.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        What a wonderful shout out from our friends in Ireland!!! It's always wonderful knowing when the O'Neill's are in our home. They have been part of our "Harborview family" for several years now and always take great care of the joint. As John pointed out, we reside at our inn just a few miles away, and although we stay as unobtrusive as possible, we are always just a phone call away if something isn't working, or a kitchen gadget goes missing, or if you just need some discounted whale watch tickets or island ferry tickets. Thank you for taking the time to write, and we look forward to seeing you yet again next year!!! Tom & Ali

                                                                        We have stayed at Harborview a number of times over the past few years and each time is more memorable than the last. The home is beautifully decorated with everything you could want or need. Tom and Ali, the owners, are a delight and so easy to work with. But the location and the view are OUTSTANDING! Could not ask for better. Lovely beach just outside the door, close to restaurants, and every imaginable activity you could want from a beach vacation. We can't wait to go back.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        THANK YOU, Debbie! You are welcome to the house any time! Yes, we also love our location. We bought the property and built the house because we just don't think there is a better location on Cape Cod. The mid-Cape area puts you close to everything, and that view of Sandy Neck and the lighthouse--well, it STILL takes our breath away. Thanks for taking the time and we will see you there this fall!
