About the property

4 large bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms with granite vanities, sleeps 8 in luxury!

Our professionally decorated 4 bedroom 2 bath home was featured on HGTV where designer Monica Pedersen declared us a winner!

Monica commented ''They created a backyard oasis; you don't have to go anywhere else''. ''Design wise they did everything right and also introduced some really creative, charming details that would make any family feel welcome and excited to be on the Cape''!

Spend your days tanning and playing the beach, enjoying our bicycles on the Rail Trail, or using our kayaks Seymour Pond and then come home to relax in the hot tub!

Our lovely home features seaside decor, Pottery Barn furnishings, and a touch of antiques. It is fully stocked with all the comforts of home and located on large landscaped lot on a private, quiet cul-de-sac.

Everything you need for a relaxing vacation is here, including linens*, towels*, beach chairs, coolers, kayaks and bicycles!

Enjoy the kitchen with granite counters, maple cabinets, island and new appliances.

A direct plumbed Weber grill & outdoor dining for 8 is perfect for a family dinner, and the teak bar overlooks the 90 jet hot tub with waterfall. All this atop a 30' long TimberTech deck! Of course you can always end a perfect Cape Cod day around the fire pit! Retire in the evening and be assured of all new mattresses and bedding in the 4 spacious bedrooms. The gorgeous new bathrooms have 4 foot long granite vanities, Kohler rain shower heads, and travertine and tile flooring.

There is plenty of comfortable seating in the living room so you can enjoy 50+ DVDs on the flat screen TV, extra lighting for that good book or jigsaw puzzle. Need to stay connected to the office or upload your vacation photos to Facebook? Not a problem with the high speed wireless internet, desk and unlimited local and long distance calling.

The sun-filled first floor features lovely hardwood oak and bamboo floors. Two bedrooms, each with 2 twin beds, as well as a full bath is just down the hall. Upstairs are two large queen bedrooms, each with a private sitting area, and they share a full bath with granite topped vanity. One of the Queen bedrooms also has a flat screen TV and DVD player. 2 ZONE CENTRAL Air conditioning will keep you comfortable if needed, but the house has great breezes when the windows are open.

We have thought of everything, so you don’t have to spend your time packing the SUV with all that you own! Poke around in the garage and you will find beach chairs, beach umbrella, sand toys, Kayaks, boogey boards, sports equipment, bicycles and a cooler for your time at the beach. After your day at the shore, you will find a clothes line to dry your bathing suits and towels in the fresh Cape Cod air.

Your beds will be made upon your arrival should you choose to add on our linen rental package. The beautiful and immaculate queen bedded rooms on the second floor have high thread count sheets on top of brand new pillow top and memory foam mattresses. You will find lamps for bedtime reading, and generous closet space for your belongings.

The sunny kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave, ice maker, and trash compactor. All the conveniences of home including a coffee maker, toaster, blender, lobster and corn pots, wine glasses, high end cutlery and stainless gourmet pots and pans. Drink your morning coffee at the kitchen island or even in the hot tub! Fine barware will have you serving up Margarita’s and Martini’s in no time!

Our newly finished basement includes a TV viewing area (with SMART TV and full access to Netflix), air hockey table, and craft and coloring area. Plenty of room for fun and play!

Centrally located and close to it all! The home is just 2 miles from the warm ocean waters of Bank Street beach on Nantucket Sound in Harwich and less than 1 mile to the top rated Cranberry Valley Golf Course, the paved Cape Cod Rail Trail bike bath, free tennis and basketball courts, playground, public library, concert gazebo, the Cape Cod Baseball League Harwich Mariner's Field, weekly (Thursday) Farmer’s Market and Dunkin Donuts.

In just 1 – 3 miles and you will be at the batting cages, go-carts, art galleries, junior theatre, movie theater, CVS, Shaw’s/Star market supermarket, Fish Markets, Shops and restaurants of Harwich and Harwichport, Freedom Cruise Line (with express ferry service to Nantucket), George’s Pizza and the famous Sundae School ice cream. Spectacular boutique shopping in Chatham awaits you!

Drive north to Cape Cod Bay and the tidal flats of Brewster and Orleans for an unusual beach experience for the kids. Try to catch the sunset at low tide and bring your camera for an unforgettable moment.

We rented houses all over Cape Cod before selecting this spacious Cape in a quiet and quaint neighborhood for our purchase. Now families can have the same luxuries and amenities that they have at home, leaving time for relaxing and renewing with family and friends. More than 75% of our renters are repeat renters who travel from various states and countries to enjoy our high quality rental. Early booking is encouraged.

Please, for consideration of all of our guests, we do not allow pets or smoking.

Please note: weeks are not reserved until rental deposit and contract is received.

Another fabulous stay at Leap of Faith

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth stay at the Leap of Faith and we always have an epic time. Somehow Mark and Rhonda seem to find a way of making the house even nicer every time we come.

We love having the bikes and the canoes and everywhere we want to go is within easy reach. The only slight regret is that we didn't think we spent enough time at the house this time. Having the AC was great and we enjoyed some nice barbecues and time around the fire pit.

The house is always immaculately presented, clean and tidy, and on arrival we instantly feel relaxed and completely at home. The best thing is the feeling we get that Mark and Rhonda are always out to do their best to make us feel wanted and happy on our vacation. We are planning our fifth visit in 2017 and are counting the days already.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Leap of Faith is such a wonderful place to stay! It has all the amenities one could ask for and so much more, including a hammock, fire pit, hot tub, outdoor shower, bikes, beach chairs, coolers, central air and newly finished basement for all to enjoy! Each year Rhonda and Mark seem to make improvements to the home that make it more enjoyable every time we visit. They also are very accessible if there is ever something that you need which is comforting to know when you are so far from home. There are so many great places to visit and experience on the Cape, such as Captain Parker's Restaurant and Nauset Light beach which always seems to have the best waves for my children to enjoy! Provincetown is always a stop at the Lobster Pot for the best Bloody Mary and Chatham for its wonderful shops on a rainy day. We look forward to our Cape Cod vacations as it is such a relaxing and clean home to stay in!

Beautiful property for a relaxing Stay in Harwich on the Cape. Property is as described!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful property with a relaxing setup. While we were often at the beach, we looked forward to getting back to the property for relaxing after the beach. The yard has very nice landscaping and we spent a lot of time in the evenings relaxing on the deck and enjoying the fire pit. On a rainy day, this home has a very nice basement for catching up on reading or watching a movie. The best part was the thought that Mark and Rhonda put into having "everything you need" at the home. The beach chairs, cooler, beach games and umbrellas at the property helped us to pack light. The kitchen and grill setup was perfect with all the dishes, cups, and appliances we needed. While this is not a beach front property, access to the beaches is very easy and our teens liked the access to bike trails and downtown Harwich. The owners are very quick to follow up on the minor questions I had upon arrival. I sent a quick email and they responded immediately. They were also helpful with restaurant recommendations and there are many choices in the area.

Perfect Vacation!

We just returned from a week's stay at this home and did not want to leave! It was beautiful, clean, and had everything we needed for the week. The grounds outside as well as the inside were comfortable and immaculate. If you're looking for a perfect Cape Cod get-away, look no further! Our family will have memories to treasure!

About Rhonda and Mark Paradis

Mark and Rhonda grew up in New England (MA and VT), met in San Diego, and reside in NJ. Growing up meant summers on Cape Cod and in 2010, after a fun search, we found this ideal home on Cape Cod. We undertook a full renovation of the interior including all new kitchen and baths, and each year we have continued to improve the property and add amenities. The new deck, hot tub and fire pit followed, central air conditioning, new bikes - all recommendations from our renters. We have many reviews on another website - just ask and we can share that link with you!

Rhonda and Mark Paradis purchased this house in 2010

Why Rhonda and Mark Paradis chose Harwich Center

The quiet cul-de-sac location, close to everything, but quiet and easily accessible to Route 6 and beaches.

What makes this house unique

So much outdoor space! The hot tub and fire pit seem to be favorites, not to mention the large outdoor shower for rinsing off after a day at the beach. The outdoor dining for 8, direct plumbed Weber gas grill, gourmet kitchen equipment, bikes and kayaks for your use, coolers, Tommy Bahama beach chairs, boogie boards - we have thought of everything so you don't have to!
