West Harwich House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8 )

Our West Harwich home has all the charm of yesteryear with the comforts and conveniences of today. You will find a mix of the old and the new, with wide pine floors, lots of windows, Cape Cod dormers and a farmhouse feel balanced with the newly updated kitchen and baths, cable TV and wireless Internet access. With sleeping accommodations for 8, our home is well suited for two small families, a large inter-generational family, a girls get away or a few couples. A large open living area and three outdoor living spaces - a large deck, a patio/grill area and a screened front porch - provides plenty of room both inside and out for togetherness. There are also lots of nooks and crannies for that late afternoon nap or reading.

We are located on a quiet street, 4/10 mile from Nantucket Sound beaches. Additionally our location offers easy access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail (and we have bicycles for your use!), you can walk to a park at the end of our street with trails and a playground for children or walk in the other direction to town for ice cream, pizza, art galleries, shops and restaurants. We think it's the perfect spot for rest, relaxation and fun!

Our home comfortably sleeps 8 people. There are two bedrooms on the first floor (1 queen, 2 twins) and a full bathroom. The upstairs has three bedrooms (1 queen, 1 full, 2 twins) and another full bath. Each room has a dresser, night stands and reading lamps. Some have a small TV as well. The beds are comfortable and cozy. You'll sleep well after a day in the sun, swimming, good food and drink, a bike ride or a round of golf. There is something very peaceful about falling asleep in the quiet Cape Cod night, with the ocean breeze and the sweet smell of sea air.

The house comes with a fully equipped kitchen, including lobster pot and crackers (you will need to supply your own bibs!). There is a coffee maker, microwave, oven, toaster, and dishwasher. There is a gas grill on the patio. Common spices are stocked in the kitchen for your use as well. For those of you not so into cooking, there are many great restaurants and local take-out places in Harwich. The bathrooms are newly updated and very clean. We also have a washer and dryer on the first floor and a large outdoor shower.

Our home will be well prepared for your arrival. Upon entering you will note the warmth and simplicity of the decor and begin to unwind and relax. The house will be immaculately cleaned (with environmentally friendly products), the beds will be made and the outdoor furniture set-up. All you will need to do is unpack and meander to the grocery to stock up for the week. If something is not right, we are just a phone call away to make it right!

Cape Cod Charm - All Year Long!

Although most people think that summer on Cape Cod is the best season, we love the Cape all year long. Each season offers its own special magic. Fall is beautiful with the changing color of the leaves, the warm bay and ocean water, cranberry fall festivals and craft shows, the always available seafood, warm days and cool nights. Springtime on the Cape is when everything comes alive - the budding trees, the flowers, the calm sea and lots of pre-season specials. Winter is truly the quiet time on the Cape, but there is a special feel from Thanksgiving to Christmas in the small towns and villages. Shopping for holiday gifts, looking at the lights and long walks on the beach are some of the highlights. And summer - sun, swimming, bike riding on the rail trail, kayaking, mini golf, ice cream, barbecues, outdoor showers, walks along the shore and just hanging out - what more could you ask for?

Our West Harwich Charmer has quickly become a place we call home. It is our little piece of quiet simplicity in a sometimes hectic world. We know you will love it as well. Let us know if you would like to visit.

About Robin Sesan

Summers on Cape Cod are a tradition for us. It is really a place where memories are made. As an "empty nester" I love exploring the Cape in the off season and sharing the Cape in the summer with my 'grown' children, friends and family. I am a licensed psychologist by day - the outdoors, the fresh sea air, the meandering in quaint shops and little towns and good food on the Cape feed my soul.

Robin Sesan purchased this house in 2010

Why Robin Sesan chose Harwich - Harwichport

We spent many summers vacationing and exploring Cape Cod before deciding to purchase our home in West Harwich. For us, Harwich 'has it all'. Ideally located half-way between either end of the Cape, Harwich has spectacular salt water beaches on Nantucket Sound, the largest fresh water ponds, miles of biking and hiking trails, conservation land, boating, fishing and award winning golf courses. The seven villages of Harwich all have their own unique feel, with fabulous restaurants, shops and art galleries. Harwich is a small New England town. The feeling is relaxed and the people are friendly. And we have the Harwich Mariners, our own Cape Cod Baseball League team.

What makes this house unique

We looked at many houses before purchasing this home. Our home has a simple elegance to it, with a calm, cozy and relaxed feel. There is nothing more enjoyable than sitting on the deck, drinking coffee in the morning and listening to the birds and Nantucket Sound. We love that we can walk to the beach and to town and that children feel safe in the neighborhood and are able to explore on their own. As food lovers, we also enjoy the many restaurants close by and ice cream 'on demand'.

Lovely, comfortable, centrally-located home for vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the use of your home while we were in Cape Cod for a family wedding. The house was the perfect "home base" for our wedding week. The house was spacious, comfortable, and cozy and accommodated our two small children and extended family so well. The house was well stocked, and we loved that we did not have to pack or rent a high chair and pack and play for our 9 month old daughter. The house is centrally located and it was easy to get to the beach, a playground, restaurants, and shops. Our only regret was that the week was so packed with activity -- we would have enjoyed more time to just relax and enjoy the house! We definitely recommend renting this home and hope that some day we will make it back to the Cape and this house.

We were at the Cape for my daughter's wedding. The house was every bit as charming as advertised, clean..well stocked..and in a great location. Three of our adult children and our granddaughter were very comfortable in the house. We had a very minor problem with one of the beds and were extremely pleased at how quickly Robin resolved the issue. We would gladly stay here again and felt that it helped complete our Cape experience.

What a beautiful comfortable home!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the use of your home, it was perfect. There was plenty of space for our family, comfortable bedrooms, dining and living rooms, a great deck and secluded yard. We enjoyed catching up with each other sitting around the table on the deck. A very well equipped kitchen provided all that we needed.

Great location too!

Home for the week

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect spot to have a week with some of our extended family. Very comfortable, close to the ocean and good places to eat, lots of space in the back yard for cornhole games, and a great table for an evening card game, or two. The rooms were very nice, and Robin really does make her guests feel at home. Everything we needed was there - grill, shaker, condiments, an ice maker, lots of chairs outside, lots of room inside and out. Nice neighborhood for walking too - we went down one of the side roads and it was very quiet - and one of the roads led us to the Sundae School! As we (sadly) left at the end of the week we remarked that the house now felt like home - the perfect compliment.

Owner's Response: This is exactly how we want our guests to feel - like they are home. Thanks so much for taking the time to post a review and highlighting the open spaces, roominess of the house and how close it is to the beach, restaurants and of course the Sundae School. Hopefully you will visit again.

Quaint Cape Cod Beach House

  • 4 of 5

Cheery and bright home that was comfortable for a family of 7 adults. Very clean and comfortable. The pictures listed in Homeaway are true to form. Many different spaces indoors and out like a screened in porch, large deck with plenty of seating, outdoor grilling area with seating, and an outdoor shower. Location was great. All the cooking accessories you need are there. It's the perfect house to quickly get into the vacation mode.

We have been vacationing at Robin's Harwich home for several summers. Our family has grown with our grandchildren. This home is a great place to all be together. The kids enjoy the huge yard and run and play. It is tucked in from the road and feels very secure and safe. The location of the home is excellent. We are a beach going family and usually go to Earle beach.(one mile drive) We venture out to Chatham for shopping and eating. But usually we cook and eat in the Harwich house which is prepared to handle any type of meal making you desire, very well equipped. The setup of the home allows for great sleeping too. You will not be disappointed.
