Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us this past week. We had a wonderful time in Cape Cod. Our favorite beach was Corporation Beach in Dennis because of its calm water and clean bathrooms. The pirate adventure cruise in Hyannis and the Pirate's Cove mini-golf courses were Sebastian's favorite. The best lobster roll we had was at the Chatham Fish Pier. All in all, a very memorable vacation.

Our home is located on a pleasant street where there are beautiful homes with spacious lawns and comfortable setbacks. You can have privacy, but at the same time, you will feel comfortable being around neighbors (you are not in the middle of nowhere). Children love the cul de sac for riding bicycles and taking walks w/ their parents. A very nice, friendly neighborhood nearby Ridgevale Beach, which is a ten minute walk away from our home. The beach has outdoor bathroom facilities, a small outdoor diner/grocerette for short order food and beverages. The beach is about .7 miles away from our home rental and it's a leisurely, pleasant walk to the beach! A beautiful area of Chatham!

Clean and gracious home=a great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is kept extremely clean. Owners Lianne & Nick Boas take pride in their home and it shows! The grill is completely scrubbed by the owner. A cleaning crew sparkles up the place each week. You could (almost) eat off the floors! There is no guess work here-there is a manual for every appliance in the house. The kitchen was very well equipped for when we cooked in.

This home also had some other nice amenities-central AC, a great deck, outdoor shower, and a new Weber grill.Other pluses were beach towels and chairs -it was nice not having to bring these... It is located in a residential South Chatham neighborhood-an easy walk to the Ridgevale beach which was fun to go to at low tide and walk on the sand bars.

The neighborhood was also good for our 6 year old to practice his bike riding.

We enjoyed going to the town as well-and the old time band concert on Friday nights was a fun time..

The owners were very hospitable and easy to deal with and very organized!

Perfect location in chatham. The home is just as advertised exceptionally clean & fresh. Private and comfortable as a home away from home should be. Thanks to the gracious home owners Lianne, Nick & Joanna our stay & time spent with our grand daughter at ridgevale beach, Harding, mayflower beach in Dennis meant the world to us. We hope to return again when time allows. Thank you the Santarpias
