About Ian and Kim Green

Kim and Ian currently live in West Hartford, CT with the dream of someday retiring on the Cape. Kim (O'Brien) grew up in West Hartford and Ian grew up in the Netherlands before moving to New Hapshire. We met at work in Boston in 2001.

Ian and Kim Green purchased this house in 2012

Why Ian and Kim Green chose Cape Cod

Our house is a comfortable, clean home that really allows for complete relaxation. It's in a quiet residential neighborhood in a very quaint and unspoiled little Barnstable village called Osterville. It is centrally located on the Cape and all the "action" of Hyannis (restaurants, malls, ferries, beaches, entertainment) are just a short drive away.

What makes this house unique

Location: The house is about 25 minutes from the Cape acces bridges (Bourne and Sagamore), just before Hyannis and well before Chatham and Provincetown. Not only does this save you a lot of time on arrival and departure, it also really allows you explore all the different parts of Cape Cod and the islands (the ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are a 15 minute drive) in a short amount of time. A drive to historic Boston or Newport can also be done in about an hour and a half.

Beaches: Barnstable (Osterville is a village in the town of Barnstable) has some of the best beaches on the cape (13 in all), including Craigville And Sandy Neck beaches (, on both the sound and bay side of the Cape, as well as recreational ponds. The rental house comes with a beach pass that provides free access and free parking at all these locations, including the "secret" Resident Only beaches and town boat launches.

Recreation: Golf: There are two public golf courses in Barnstable (Hyannis golf course and Olde Barnstable Fairgrounds) as well as other great public and private courses in nearby towns.

Bicycling: The house is centrally located between the four major Cape Cod bike trails (Cape Cod Rail Trail, Nickerson Network, Cape Cod Canal Bikeway, and Cape Cod Shining Sea Bikeway as well as some great mountain biking trails right in town (Trail of Tears).

A beautiful house. Very comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice to come home to after full days out and about. We enjoyed having cook outs on the deck and appreciated A/C on hot days. We had plenty of room to hang out. The only thing that is needed are coasters for drinks. I forgot to bring our own towels for the last day there. It was a drag waiting for the towels to dry before we left. It would have been nice to leave the towels in the dryer for the cleaning people. Overall a great stay! Thanks!

Wonderful vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, in a very pretty, quiet neighborhood. The rooms are tastefully furnished, and impeccably clean. We enjoyed our trips all over Cape Cod, had a great time with friends at Crisps in downtown Osterville, breakfast outside in the sun at the Rendezvous Café and Creperie on Main Street, Hyannis, and good food, good beer and a very nice atmosphere at the British Beer Company also in Hyannis. The rest of the meals we ate at home, using the modern kitchen and big outside grill to BBQ.

The neighborhood is very pretty and quiet; it felt like coming home every time we turned the corner to Hickory Hill Circle.

We will most certainly recommend this place to our family, friends and everybody who asks our advice on where to stay on the Cape.

very comfortable and nicely decorated house

  • 5 of 5

We (two couples) enjoyed our stay in this beautifull house in a picturesque landscape very much. Nearly all rooms in the house are lovingly furnished. Because we stayed before Memorial-Day, some of the restauants/cafes in Osterville were not open or closed very early in the day. We tried wimpys in osterville and had great diner! We enjoyed also a day trip to Boston, a very beautifull town with nice parks. The owners ( Ian and Kim) were very helpfull and friendly. We would recommend this property to friends, relatives or colleagues.

Clean and comfortable off season oasis

  • 5 of 5

Starfish Crossing is everything they advertised it to be. Spacious, comfortable, and impeccably clean, the house was a perfect spot for a holiday break. I highly recommend a trip into Osterville for the firepits at Crisp or a great walk on the beach in the off-season. Hope to get to get to come back soon.
