About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

Why sacrifice the comforts of home while you are on vacation? This immaculate and tastefully decorated home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood just a 10-minute stroll to Craigville Beach. Take advantage of the beach pass to visit all of the Barnstable beaches, even the ones normally reserved for residents only.

The over-sized, tree-filled and very private yard is fully enclosed by a 6 foot solid wooden fence, making it a great choice for families with children. In addition to the outdoor shower, the house boasts two full bathrooms, including one in the master suite. The sparkling kitchen, with its marble counter tops, has everything you need.

Central air helps you stay cool on the hot summer days. Sliders lead from the kitchen to a stone patio, for you to enjoy BBQing and outdoor dining. The garden is professionally landscaped and the interior is professionally cleaned after each guest, so rest assured that you will arrive to find things in tip-top shape.

Convenient to everything - beaches, shopping, restaurants, ferries.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was absolutely wonderful and supplied with everything we needed.

We were happily surprised at what great condition it was in and the fenced backyard was perfect.

Loved It - Comfortable, Clean, Easy

  • 5 of 5

As soon as we walked in the door, my wife commented that the house was nicer than the pictures showed. It was great for our week long August visit - more than enough space for my wife and me, and our 7 year old twins. We didn't really need the third bedroom, but appreciated the space. Its a cute little house; but somehow feels spacious - with a lot of walking space in the kitchen in particular. The living room is on the small side, but was very comfortable for our needs. We only turned on the TVs once each; but still nice to have them. Everything was very clean on arrival, and feels well maintained. The furniture is pretty basic (typical of Cape rentals), but nothing we objected to - and we're nitpickers. We enjoyed the yard, and patio table - perfect for bringing steamed lobster from the Cape Fish and Lobster Market up the road. Just around the corner are a number of quiet winding streets where the kids learned to ride bikes without training wheels. And, we were at the beach every day. The walk would be a bit too long for our kids; but super easy by bike and car. And, Four Seas Ice Cream nearby! Walking distance to the Daily Paper, a great place for breakfast/lunch; and Shaws for groceries. Amy (one of the owners) was great to deal with from the start - friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. We highly recommend, and hope to return soon...

Clean, cozy home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this rental in July of 2014. The owners were pleasant, responsive, and accommodating. We loved the location and the house had everything we needed for cooking, etc. I've stayed a lot of placed in Cape Cod over the years, and this was one of the most pleasant stays. We would have booked it again this year, but we ended up going to Rhode Island instead.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week in the house. MY wife and two kids along with my in-laws. This house is comfortable and has everything you need. Great outdoor shower to clean the kids off from the beach!! This was our second year here and look forward to coming back.

Wonderful visit in a pristine home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here with our three girls (aged 2, 4 & 6) as well as my mother and truly enjoyed everything this home had to offer. Our girls loved playing in the backyard, and I loved that it was fully fenced in so I knew they were safe.

The house really is spotlessly clean, and I know from having rented places all over the Cape for the last ten years that doesn't always happen. The central A/C worked perfectly, as did all of the appliances. The home description and all photos were completely accurate.

We were very pleased with our experience in Amy's family home - and Amy was always ready to answer any questions we had (no matter how pesky!)

Thanks so much for a wonderful stay...

Great, child friendly Cape house

  • 4 of 5

I rented this place for a week in August 2012 and it was the perfect accommodation for my sister, my nephew, my parents and me. The house was clean when we arrived and it looked exactly like the pictures online. The proximity to the beach was great – it was walkable if you weren’t lugging all your beach gear and super close to drive since you have use of the parking pass. Having both these options was perfect since my sister liked being able to get back and forth to the beach with my nephew with ease. She also commented on how the house had everything you can think of and was very child friendly. We enjoyed lots of trips to Four Seas for ice cream and took a day trip down to Chatham as well. It was a relaxing vacation and the house had everything we needed. The washer/dryer was a perk that we weren’t even looking for, but loved having and the outdoor shower was great. The owners were always very prompt in responding to my questions.

great beach time

  • 4 of 5

Hello Amy, and Jim

I just want to drop you a note about our week down the cape.

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay at the “house”, yes house, not cottage. I have rented other place at the cape and none compare to this.

The perfect location to the beach and the private back yard……………..great.

My husband and I we really rested and enjoyed the beach. No one else came down so it was just the two of us……great.

I hope I have left the house in great shape, we only used the master bedroom and the bath (thank goodness for the walk in shower), all the amenities, wonderful.

I hope to be back next year with my kids from Oklahoma……………….they called me every day to see what we would do that day.

Again thanks

Rose and Al
