Guest Book Comments: July -16, 2011

We had a wonderful time here this week, and your home is impeccably maintained---what a pleasure!!!!

The proximity to Forest Beach is a definite plus, and we fully took advantage of the tennis court. Your location

is really one of the best we've had on Cape Cod. Thank you.

August 20-26, 2011

Everything was terrific during our stay this week. With the bikes, tennis courts and naearby beach, and basketball,

we had a great time! It's a beautiful house, great location & we enjoyed everything very much----except for our

early departure thanks to Hurricane Irene!

August 13-19, 2011

Cape Cod was just s beautiful as expected, and your house was just the right place to enjoy it. Thank you very much

for this so well kept house.

July, 2011

We so much enjoyed our stay here in your lovely home. Everything exceeded our expectations from the comfortable

beds and the lovely patio. We appreciated the quiet in the evenings. We hope to come back in future years.


July 2, 2012

After 3 years in a row, we are thinking of this as 'our' cottage. The

Peaceful atmosphere of both the house and Forest Beach make this a perfect place to unwind from our very 'hectic' lives back

home. Thank you always for sharing your home.

July 7, 2012

We had yet another wonderful week on the Cape, no small thanks

to this house and its perfect locate near the beach. The July 4th

parade in Chatham was great fun. For new visitors, we highly

recommend a stop at Sundae School on Route 28 in Harwich--best

ice cream around!!!

July 14, 2012

What a lovely house you have, perfect for trips to Provencetown as

the Eastern past of the U. S. We are happy we have chosen your

Whale Watching

Surfing at Nauset Beach

Marion's Pie Shop!!! Best in the World!

Land Ho Restaurant in Orleans

Eating our evening meal on Forest Beach

all the way from the U.K. a big thanks for this special house!

About Diane Ogasian

Originally from the Great Lakes area of Lake Michigan, I am happily retired on Cape Cod. As a child, I spent summers on the Lake,

as an adult, I love enjoying the Ocean. Our family lives on Cape Cod about 45 minutes from our Chatham Home. Our family often stays in Chatham and enjoys the wonderful First Night Celebration.

My husband is an electrical engineer; I am in business. We have 3

adult children. We love to travel, and we are thrilled to be living on

Cape Cod.

Why Diane Ogasian chose Chatham

We vacationed in Chatham for many years, and decided to purchase a second home based upon our wonderful experiences here. We take great pride in keeping our place up to date and enjoyable for our guests. We want everyone to enjoy our home

in Chatham as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

Most guests find our setting very serene and peaceful, and more

private than many of the rental settings in Chatham----our place is

quiet and relaxing. We chose our home for its wonderful location

and especially like that we have a large fireplaced family room, and a very separate living room which allows us to 'get away' from

each other a bit when all the family is present.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely, the location is perfect. House itself is so complete, plenty of space and all

you can think of is there. We enjoyed the barbecue and also played a number of

tennis games, and the beach so close by!

Great little vacation spot hidden away in beautiful Chatham! The house was perfect for our stay with the beach, tennis, and great bike trails close by. Love to cook and had everything we needed in the kitchen and enjoyed the newer grill and patio outside. Especially enjoyed the outdoor shower after a day at the beach!

Beautiful Chatham Home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this beautiful Chatham home was wonderful. The home was full of anything and everything you could possibly want in your home away from home. It is very spacious and homey. We especially enjoyed the large family room with glass and screen sliding doors in the evenings and eating dinner on the deck cooked on the Weber gas and charcoal grills provided. The bicycles were a great convenience as well. No lugging our own was great. Diane was such a pleasure to deal with. Always so helpful and friendly. She even has a huge binder with all kinds of recommendations and info on things to do in Cape Cod. We highly recommend this home to anyone looking to have a great relaxing time in Cape Cod. Thank you so much Diane.

Such a nice and well maintained house!

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting every year in Chatham for the last 5 years. This house was the cleanest and the most guestfriendly of all the houses we rented. It had everything: nice beach chairs, inflatable toys to play in the sea, an beach umbrella, 4 bikes and helmets, sand toys etc.

Beds and pillows were very comfy. We loved the outdoor shower. And the kitchen so clean with recent appliances.

I liked that there was also toilet paper, dishwasher soap, detergent for the laundry etc

Lastly, Diane was helpful, generous in answering all my questions and even checked with me on the second day that we had everything we needed.

If we come back next year, this is the house I hope to rent.

Pristine home, centrally located, walk to beach!

  • 5 of 5

We've been VRBO renters for 14 years. This home was the cleanest and best equipped place we've ever rented. The tennis court and climbing wall next door kept my kids occupied whenever we were at home. The central location allowed us to explore the Cape (from Whale Watching to long sunset walks...). Forest Beach a short walk away was a great end-of-the-day relaxation spot. Beds were spotless and comfy, great books, quality kitchen equipment, good beach chairs & toys...wish we'd found this spot when our kids were toddlers (high chair, sippy cups, etc.). Diane was great to work with, even checking in via email on Day 2 to make sure we didn't need anything. The restaurant recommendations were great (clam strips and milkshakes/frappes at Kream & Kone were worth the long drive from Maryland). As a bonus, while playing tennis with our kids, we heard a rustling in the bushes behind the court. We paused our game as a HUGE wild turkey and its 4 chicks strolled through the area about 20 feet from where we were standing. So cool!! It's our habit to go to a different location every year, but if we ever come back to Chatham - this is the house we're renting.

Lovely Home in Private Setting, Walk to Beach

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in late September, great time to visit, (couldn't get the website arrival calendar to adjust off of October, lol). Down a quiet lane, but close to the quaint town of Chatham, and shopping areas. Updated home was lovely with a well stocked kitchen, and private yard with a patio. Very clean throughout, and beds were comfy! Bedrooms are quiet, being away from the family room area. Washer and dryer in the basement. Tennis courts close by and a nice beach is a short, pleasant walk away. Owners were very responsive, helpful, and friendly to work with. I would definitely stay again and recommend to my family or friends! Thanks for a great stay!

Great spot, easy walk to beach

  • 5 of 5

Our family just left and we can't wait to get back. Three things stand out. First this is a great location. It is quiet, close to Forest Beach and a short easy drive to the main grocery store, local ice cream shop, etc. Second the house is really clean, all on one level and even has beach toys, bikes, etc., in the basement for guests to use. Third, the owner is really nice and super responsive. We rent lots of vacation houses in lots of places and this is a Top Pick.
