Guestbook comments from the owner

"Once again we had a wonderful time in your beautiful home and surroundings! Summer temps and cool nights allowed us to be on the outstanding beaches, see seals in Chatham and get to many places not seen in years. Of course your deck and the changing landscape left us anxious and excited to see what had changed overnight and was beaming in the sunshine. Still warm enough to use the outdoor shower which is one of our favorite things about staying here."

Wonderful summer in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to spend the summer in the US and thanks to Craig, we enjoyed our stay very much in his lovely " Beach House". From the first mails onwards we felt a "warm welcome" and being in good hands - Craig was very responsive and supportive in helping us with the procedures when being guests from Europe which gave us great comfort.

The house is spacious ( 6 adults and 3 little kids) and was very well equipped, so we felt like being home from the first day. Waking up with the lovely marsh views was the best way to start the day! Craig has a collection of useful information like restaurant recommendations or activities which we had fun to follow. Many thanks for a wonderful stay- hopefully we will come back.

Perfect house for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our first trip in Cape Cod. It was everything I dreamed of. We were a big family of 9 (from 1 yrs old to 63!!!) and we had enough space for everybody. The house was very clean and in good condition. We were also pleased with the outdoor shower.

The local beach was perfect for our kids. But also, it was so calm and peaceful that it was a perfect place to relax and enjoy the sun. We also went to Cold Storage Beach in Dennis. This was a very nice beach with bigger waves and more crowdy.

The location is perfect for someone who want to explore the Cape.

We didn't have enough time to do everything we wanted and we are looking to come back next year!

Fantastic house - highly recommended!

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house - nicest house our group of 8 has stayed in on the Cape! Lots of room for all of us - beautiful bedrooms, big dining room table, plenty of space outside on the deck, lots of room for multiple people to be working in the kitchen. When we arrived, everything was clean, open, airy. It's tranquil and near the end of a very quiet street. Beach is a pleasant 5-minute walk through conservation land. Marshy beach was a nice place for the kids to swim. Bigger beaches do require a drive (we went to Craigville Beach one day; about 20 minutes). House is also about 1.5 miles from Barnstable Village with market, library, shops - easy drive there (or it can be walked or jogged). Owners were extremely kind and responsive, and have created a wonderful place for a Cape vacation. Highly recommended!!

Great House Great Location Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

It is always a great feeling when you walk into a rental property and you feel realxed and at home. The owners Craig and Sharon were very helpful throughout the entire process and their home was fantastic. The open kitchen and family room opens up the house and the glass sliding doors across the back of the house lets in plenty of light and beautiful views of the tidal marsh. Close and convenient to everything you need to get too. The beach was a bit of a walk but Parking on the next street over was free and we did not seem to have problems. We did several day trips to other area beaches but found the beach there to be very nice. The house come with everything you need and having the beach chairs and the cart to load everything in was a big plus. Outdoor Shower was fantastic and I don't think anyone ever used an inside shower the whole time we were there. The kids loved the yard and the walking trails right next door were very nice as well. We had lots of friends stop by and say hello and everyone loved teh house as much as we did!

Marvelous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My family of six adults, one four year-old and a baby stayed for five days in this beautiful home. The owner was extremely helpful before our stay with suggestions for restaurants, beaches, etc. and when we arrived, there was a large notebook with even more information that helped us plan our visit so that every precious moment was used wisely. The home was beautiful, and perfect for all of our needs. The view out the back is breathtaking, and we were able to enjoy eating on the back deck.outside almost every evening we were there. It is a short, scenic walk to the beach which we found loaded with shells, tidal pools, and all kinds of interesting things for adults and kids alike! Barnstable is a lovely town with helpful, friendly people and markets and coffee shops to fill three vacations. We definitely plan to return to this house for years to come and we highly recommend it to anyone who wants a peaceful, yet fun-filled family vacation without all of the fuss of moving in and out of uncomfortable hotels!
