Great house near the beach with everything you need!

We enjoyed our stay in Chatham at this comfortable and very clean home. It's in a very quiet neighborhood and a 5 minute walk to the beach. Great amenities throughout the home and a perfect location.

Great Beach House

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house. It is located in a quiet neighborhood within a very short and easy walk to the beach. The back deck off the kitchen is great for family meals. The owners are nice, responsive and super helpful.

Fanatstic Summer Rental

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house for the first week in August with my wife and 2 year old son. The house is within a 5 min. walk to Ridgevale beach(great for kids). They have 3 great bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms with a perfect outdoor shower which is all we used for the week! It's in perfect condition and has everything you could ever need including a beach cart, toys and chairs. The outdoor yard is perfect and the grill was a +. Restaurants, grocery store and Main street are all very close. I would highly recommend this house. The owners are also very nice and were very helpful and generous.

Excellent house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Rented this house over the July 4th week with my wife and 2 year old daughter and had a great time! The house is in pristine condition, with 3 bedrooms and a separate den and came equipped with everything you would need. There is an easy bulkhead if you want to keep your bikes out of the weather. The beach chairs, toys, and cart to bring everything down to the beach was an added bonus. Ridgevale beach is only 5 min away and a great place for little kids to play and we visited main st Chatham for baseball games and dinner a lot of nights. Highly recommend!

Super Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this beautiful quintessential cape home in pristine condition. Short 2 minute walk to calm and not overly crowded beach with shallow salt ponds near inlets was awesome for children. I loved the outdoor shower after beach days!! House was close to everything with only short 5 min drive to shopping on Main St. Loved this rental.

Don't rent this—I want it for myself!

  • 5 of 5

We've been renting this home for a number of years, and I'm reviewing it here at the request of the owner. I don't want to review it, because I don't want anyone else to rent this house. I want to keep it for my family's summer vacations forever.

At the time of this review, I have three children under 7. We've rented this home 5 times, and have already made memories to last a lifetime. The short, picture-perfect walks to the beach. Dinners on the back deck. Sandcastles. Clamming and catching crabs in the tidal pools. Renting paddle boards and kayaks. Teaching the kids how to swim in the surf. Annual photos of the children on the bridge to the beach—a document of their growth. Movie nights at home. Trips to Candy Manor in town, and a tradition of eating the booty with the kids at the bandstand in the park around the corner. Local babysitters allowing Mom and Dad a night out at any of the wonderful restaurants in Chatham and nearby. Walks in town. Breakfasts of Chatham Bakery doughnuts on the upper porch. I could go on and on.

The house itself is a dream. Humble but luxurious, with all you need for a beach vacation. Plenty of beds, air conditioning for hot or humid days, chairs and karts to port everything to the beach. It is luxurious, but not ostentatious—which is important to me, in terms of the kids. The location is simply stunning. If I were asked what were the most serene, beautiful moments of my life, the walk over the bridge at the beginning and end of the day is the first image that would come to mind.

A friend of mine takes his family somewhere new every year, looking for the perfect place. We were lucky to find it—and committing to making memories there annually is half of that equation. Already, my kids know the books in the house, where the games are, or to use the dining room table for jigsaw puzzles. I can't recommend this home enough. Our house at home is adorned with photos from our trips, and a vase in our family room contains a few shells from each visit. Just thinking of the house, as I write this in the depths of a very snowy, cold March, is making me long for a walk to the beach with my son, getting buried there by my daughters, and an end-of-day sunset walk with my wife.

Just don't rent it on the week I want!

Ridgevale Beach is one of the most beautiful spots on the Cape. Our neighborhood Bucks Creek overlooks both the marsh and beach and has a private foot bridge to the beach. The Beach is wonderful for families with warm calm water on the marsh side where kids can crab, wade, play in the tidal pools and float with the tide. The long Nantucket Sound sandy beach is perfect for strolls, shelling and swimming in the gentle waves.

Chatham is a great location for day trips to the National Seashore, Provincetown, whale watching and the ferry to Nantucket.
