About the property

Sleeps 10, 5 bedrooms, 5 baths, private basketball court and zip line for kids!

This gorgeous sprawling home on 3 acres is surrounded by 50 acres of conservation land. It is extremely private, very quiet, has its own pond, and plenty of space for sunbathing and outside play, large, expansive decks, lots of room for entertainment inside. It is completely equipped with big TVs and electronics, and a fully equipped kitchen. Secure WiFi. This is the perfect place for that Cape Cod summer holiday, a wedding weekend in the spring or fall, for special extended family get-togethers over a long weekend, at Thanksgiving, or Christmas or New Year's. Call us! (note that we do not host weddings or large gatherings on-site).

What's nearby: The house is located in south Chatham and is a three minute drive (just down the road) to Cockle Cove beach. As you go towards main street in downtown Chatham (5 minutes), you will pass Ridgevale and then Harding's beaches. We are three minutes from the Super Stop and Shop and the liquor store, as well as several restaurants and take-outs. It is 5 minutes to Captains golf course, ten minutes from Chatham Seaside links and 5 minutes from Cape Cod National Golf Club (if you are lucky enough to be a member!). As one of our guests put it after googling the satellite photo 'I like the location; close to everything but totally away from everything'.

About Jaime

The owners are two parents with five kids; they love the Cape and have been coming here for 35 summers since they were teenagers. They like the family traditions, the fun and excitement on the cape in the summer, the energy people bring when they are here for a week or two and they set out to make the most of every minute!

Jaime purchased this estate in 2009

Why Jaime chose Chatham

This is the third property the owners have owned and rented, and this one is simply fantastic. They like beautiful surroundings with room to host lots of family and of being able to serve big meals without a lot of bother. With this house, they've tried to provide everything that in their experience, people look for when they rent a nice house for their own cape cod holiday. If you need something special, let us know before you go!

What makes this estate unique

From this as your base on the cape, you can go as hard as you want or be as relaxed as you need to be. You are in the center of everything, yet you have the space, the quiet and the privacy to just withdraw and relax.

There's a private basketball court (basketballs in the garage) and a ping-pong table. The backyard has a zip line which kids love. Bring your kayak or canoe or use those on the property (at your own risk). The house is centrally air conditioned and it has a main floor laundry room. The big living room runs from one side of the house to the other and is central to the decks, kitchen and main floor master bedroom. The house sits on 3 acres, surrounded by 50 acres of conservation land so you will not have any neighbors. It is very quiet, very private and is just the perfect place for a family vacation, a couples get-away, a retreat, extended family holidays over long weekends, or for those Cape Cod wedding weekends both spring and fall. The pond is fresh water but not swimable. There are numerous trails from the house including to Goose Pond which is close by and is swimable. The trails are great for walking or daily runs. Secure wifi, phone and computer jacks in every room.

An outstanding place to enjoy a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended famil y of 12 (ages 2 to 76) enjoyed a glorious week at theis fabulous home. Since my wife grew up on Cape Cod, and since we live in the Boston area, we were fully aware of the many amenities and activities in the surrounding area.

As noted by other reviewers, this is a most comfortable home - and it really is described by Jaime. It was well designed with large and inviting rooms. The kitchen is well laid out and overly stocked with plates, glasses, utensils, etc. Having two refrigerators was a major benefit since our children brought several prepared meals and produce, and there was ample room for cold drinks, etc. The biggest attraction for the children was Goose Pond. Most of us hiked there each day with the beach chairs, etc, going by car. Evenings in front of the fire pit or running on the flats at low tide in Dennis were memorable times as well.

We had visited the house in June when Jaime and Michele were present. We found them charming and most accomodating. This association carried over by e-mail during our stay and after we left.

Needless to say, we are eager to return.

A wonderful place for families

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely gorgeous, and very spacious for our group of 10 (6 adults, 4 kids aged 7, 9, 11, and 15). There is plenty of space in and outside of the house for the kids to play, to say nothing of the paddleboat on the pond and the firepit for s'mores.

The location is convenient to stores, restaurants, and beaches. Try the Country Store (a 5-minute walk for breakfast burritos) and Marie's Pie Shop (a 5 minute drive for dessert pies AND bring-home-and-warm-in-the-oven lasagna, chicken pot pie, etc). A Chatham restaurant we enjoyed was the Longshore, on Main Street.

On our one rainy morning the kids enjoyed learning about the Enigma machine and the Morse Code at the Marconi Museum in Chatham. On sunshiny days we played mini-golf at Harbor Lights in Brewster, tennis (go to the Chatham high school - 9 courts), and of course the beaches.

Definitely a 5-star place to stay! We have already recommended it to friends.

Beautiful home for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

Our Chatham vacation was made perfect by this beautiful home. The house was the perfect size for our large group. We loved eating out on the deck and gathering at the kitchen table while working on a puzzle. It was so great to have large rooms where we could spend time as a family, but also space enough to spread out. The men, and boys also loved the boats and close proximity to the water on the property. We also enjoyed the fire pit and complete privacy of the home. The location in Chatham was perfect. We were able to spend some time at Goose Pond, shopping downtown, and got take out a couple of times from the Chatham Fish Pier. It was the perfect setting to celebrate our parents’ 50th wedding anniversary.

Second time around was even better !

  • 5 of 5

This place is the most peaceful and beautiful vacation house to stay, This was our groups 2nd time staying here and we had the best time. It is close to everything you need and want to do. The landscaping was more enhanced this year, the flowers were all healthy, beautiful and thriving. The garden stairway to the fire pit was a new addition that looked like it belonged in a garden magazine. There is a lot of room in the house to gather and also to have your own space. The house was clean and perfect upon our arrival which is always a perk. The fire pit had lot of wood to burn and we were around it every night for social time and for the kids to make s'mores. There are enough bathrooms for our party of 10, and they also were clean and updated. I would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Thank you for our wonderful vacation, we will be seeing you again next year...

Best cape rental we've ever had

  • 5 of 5

This is the third summer we have rented this house and we just love it. It's a perfect family house, lots of room. We usually go to the beach during the day and at night the kids play ping pong or beer pong in the garage or have a fire in the outdoor firepit. We watch movies also, they have a ton of DVDs. The kitchen is very well equipped including lobster pots and tools and claws etc. We used the bikes on the bike path and went to harwich and to dennisport. It's so comfortable at the house that sometimes we just hang out there during the day. The AC worked fine when we were there, didn't notice any problem but if kids leave the doors or windows open it doesn't help! We went out to monomoy one day with a boat tour and saw the seals. No great whites, maybe next time! That was a worthwhile trip and the kids just loved it. We hope to be back again next summer. Best week we've done is July 4th, there is so much to do in chatham, it's a great time. Also pride week in Provincetown is fantastic (August). Get there early. Anyway can't say enough good things about this property, it is fantastic. Owners also very helpful and respond immediately to any request.

Cape Cod National golf is close by, also the Captains (36), chatham seaside links, Cranberry Valley. Super Stop and Shop is very convenient as are a number of brand stores (Talbots, Orvis etc). If you click on the satellite view, our house is the big one below the marker on the map , and you will see the pond, the house and the decks. Because of its central location you are a short drive from everything; easy access to food, liquor, wines and shopping. Minutes from both main street Chatham, the midcape highway, and local beaches beginning with cocklecove. Its also very private and quiet. The Cape Cod bike trail is about half a mile down the road. We have five bikes you are welcome to use and more can be rented in Chatham. The bikes are tuned the beginning of the season then used by guests. They get hard use during the summer and you may need to lube or tighten something.
