About Jenny Sheehan

We live here in town year-round and absolutely love Falmouth, especially in the summer! We know all the best places to go to for restaurants, beaches, biking, trips to the Vineyard and Nantucket, etc ..., and will help our visitors!

We love fishing, boating, camping and strolling around our home town!

Jenny Sheehan purchased this house in 2009

Why Jenny Sheehan chose Cape Cod

We bought this property from a good friend who renovated it several years ago. They had been renting it for years and really enjoyed the experience of showing off the home town to visitors. The property is perfect for families and we love hosting new folks who enjoy Falmouth and all it has to offer!

What makes this house unique

We say 'Park you car and never have to use it again', which means everything is within walking distance. Walk by the Harbor on your way to Windfall Market & Bakery for morning coffee and danishes; stroll to the beach; walk to the ferries to go to Martha's Vineyard; walk to restaurants/ice cream in town; walk to the Clam Shack at the end of the Harbor; stroll to the Falmouth Commodores Cape Baseball League games; walk to Thursday night Town Band concerts at the Harbor; Bike to Woods Hole on the Shining Sea Bikeway; go fishing down at the Harbor or beach. You can drive to Wood Neck Beach where especially little ones love the tidal pools and hermit crabs!

Plenty of room!

  • 5 of 5

This house was the perfect size for my family, my sister's family, my brother, and our parents to all stay together. The location was convenient for my family...we didn't have a car, so we could walk to get coffee, groceries, and even go down main street for shopping and the Falmouth library (which the kids loved). We were back and forth to Surf Drive Beach almost every day, and we really enjoyed candlepin bowling at Ryan's. There were also plenty of bikes to go around. The kids loved the yard and all the games, puzzles, and books they discovered around the house. It was also convenient having a separate cottage for naptime...for the kids AND adults. Would definitely stay here again.

Nye Road Vacation - I recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

Recently returned home to the UK from our stay on Nye Road in Falmouth where we expected the house to be great before we arrived however we were blown away when we got there. We have teenage daughters so it is like 5 adults going away & this house gave us all the space we needed to have a really relaxing week. The location is fantastic, close to the town but still really quiet at night - we couldn't hear anything that would disturb us. Jenny was most helpful from the day I booked & she is the perfect host. Now we are home, I am already missing the long evenings in the huge garden sipping a nice glass of wine. Would recommend to anyone & will hopefully return one day.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults and 5 children, ages 7 to 14, had a great vacation at Nye Road. Just as advertised, we could walk to many places like the ball field, restaurants, donut and ice cream stores, the drug store and many shops. The house was clean, well equipped with things such as towels, chairs and toys for the beach and bikes and bike locks. The house and yard were spacious and had a large table perfect for playing games. We all agreed that we loved being in town rather out of town where we would have to drive everywhere.

Family of 11, 6 adults, 5 children - ages 9 mos., 3, 5, 7, and 10 yrs.

  • 5 of 5

This home has been perfect for our family with the cottage out back where the younger children can go to bed early and take a quiet nap during the day. This was our third year to spend our family vacation at this home. It has everything a family needs for a wonderful vacation. The location is great for walking to town, restaurants, shops, bike path. The yard is perfect and safe for children's outdoor play. We loved that bikes are available. Two of our grandsons learned to bike during this vacation. We highly recommend this home for families with children, or for anyone else.

Renters July 2014

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the rental; suited our needs for family reunion including young grandchildren. The facility was spacious and clean with everything we needed. The owner left very useful information and was available if any need arose.

We were able to walk to Falmouth Harbor, the beech, Ferry, and shops and restaurants on Main St. The falmouth Cape League baseball games are held just a few blocks away.
