About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full and one half bath plus outdoor shower, sleeps 6

This property is in a nice family neighborhood near two beautiful Nantucket Sound beaches. Although many prefer to drive to nearby beaches, especially with kids in tow, the house is within walking distance of the beach. The house is slightly south of Rte 28, the main attraction of Cape Cod's non-beach activities, including restaurants, shopping, entertainment, miniature golf, the 'Zoo-quarium', and other attractions. Close to downtown Hyannis and its diverse collection of restaurants, bars, museums, shops, the harbor, fishing charters, the Ferry and the transportation hub of Cape Cod.

About Michael Sweat

My wife and I grew up in Massachusetts and periodically vacationed on Cape Cod as children and young adults. We've always loved the Cape Cod beaches. While our primary home continues to be on Massachusetts' north shore, we purchased our first house on the Cape in 2006 and have progressively spent more time on the cape.

In 2011 we purchased this house (3010967) to handle the 'overflow' of a large family and also to rent to guests. We take our rentals seriously - we want your experience on Cape Cod to be as special as our visits have always been.

Michael Sweat purchased this house in 2011

Why Michael Sweat chose West Yarmouth

We looked at dozens of houses before selecting this house. We chose this house for several reasons. This house has always been owned by a Cape family and treated as a home. It is in a family neighborhood. It is well-constructed and well maintained. The location is exceptional - walking distance for healthy people to two beautiful beaches as well as many restaurants, shops, ice cream stands, etc.

The house is small but efficient. We think it is very cozy. It has three bedrooms that sleep six. The kitchen and living room are large enough for the group to spend time together without feeling totally cramped.

We made many improvements to the house in 2011, mostly cosmetic. We purchased virtually all furnishings, bedding, etc. new. In 2012, at the suggestion of our guests, we added a shed for our guests to store bicycles, chairs, etc.and in 2013 we added central air conditioning.

We have a caretaker who makes sure the house is taken care of when we are not available and performs off-season maintenance. The house is professionally cleaned pre-season, post-season, and weekly in-season. All amenities, appliances, and housewares are checked weekly by the cleaning staff, and problems are brought to our attention. We respond to issues promptly, either in-person or through our caretaker. Most weekend in the Spring and summer we are on the Cape and take an interest to ensure the property remains in top condition for all of our guests!

What makes this house unique

This house will never be the Ritz-Carlton! It is a cozy house that can accommodate six people comfortably at a reasonable rental rate. It is a great combination of location and property quality.

Cape Cod Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at this rental property with our three sons under 4 and it was everything we had hoped it would be and more!

The location was great.. close to restaurants, beaches etc but away from any Cape Cod congestion. The house is super clean, updated, and fit our family of 5 perfectly, with beds to spare. It has central air, an outdoor shower, AND a washer/ dryer!

We spent most days at a small, charming beach less than a mile away watching sailboats come and go next to the Yarmouth Sailing Center (A great beach for little ones as the water is shallow and waves mostly non-existent), but there are several larger beaches within a few mins driving distance.

The owner was available to help if need be but thankfully, we had no problems.

I would definitely recommend this property!

Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything our family needed. It was also in a great location for enjoying mini golf, restaurants, shopping and our favorite beaches. It is located in a very quiet neighborhood, but close to everything route 28 has to offer. We enjoyed the deck for morning coffee and having a small washer and dryer was a bonus. Provided linens made traveling so much easier. We hope to rent this home again in the future!

Cute Cape House

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as the pictures showed. It had all the needed amenities (the only thing missing was a cork screw) and was very clean. They even provide beach chairs. It is centrally located for easy access to the beach, shopping, activities, and dining. In our case it was perfect, walking distance to a function we were attending. We enjoyed the great deck for dining "el fresco" with large table, chairs and umbrella. We did have one small inconvenience of beeping and the owner was so quick to correct, while not intruding on our space or time. We all had a wonderful stay and look forward to staying again.
