About Kathie Johnson/ Shane Wedge

We've rented homes on the Cape and Martha's Vineyard for 17 years. When we bought our own Cape home in 2012, we wanted to make it a wonderful place where families and friends could build their own memories as we have for almost 2 decades.

Kathie Johnson/ Shane Wedge purchased this house in 2012

Why Kathie Johnson/ Shane Wedge chose Dennis

We selected this property because of the spectacular views. We love our view of the pond we love to swim in and we really appreciate how easy it is to be at our home -- you can walk in the backyard and swim, sail or kayak in the pond or you can walk just a few minutes to the beach. For entertainment in the evenings we walk to a local bar/restaurant and enjoy live music or sit on the deck watching the sunset over the pond.

What makes this house unique

With 3300 SF, our home is large enough for a large group to relax and never feel crowded.

Great vacation spot for large families!

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for anyone looking to visit the Cape. The home is beautifully maintained and has lots of bedrooms and areas to hang out. Short walking distance to the beach and is centrally located to take day trips to Chatham, Provincetown and it's a short ferry ride away from Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Our favorite thing about this rental is definitely the fact that it is on a large pond. We went swimming every day and loved all the water sport activities available. We also enjoyed having cocktails on the deck overlooking the pond at sunset every night.

I highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to visit the Cape! We had a great time and will definitely visit again!

Large group???...Stop searching...This is the ONE!

  • 5 of 5

Looking for a place for your large group? Look no further this place is....PERFECT!! Our group consist of 9 adults and 6 kids (age 7-16). This house was able to accommodate us all comfortably and we still had room. Two family rooms, large dining room, 4 king beds, and a bunk room that conveniently held all 6 kids & even had space for them to play. All the rooms are spacious with sitting areas. It gets even better when you go Outside. Three sitting areas(to watch beautiful sunsets), BBQ, large lawn area to play games & the cove to ride kayaks and paddle boats. True highlight of the trip. This is were the kids spent most of their time. Huge hit with them. By far all said better then a pool...hands down!! And it worked out great for us, since we didn't have beach weather in the beginning of June. There is not one bad thing to be said about this house. All of our needs were met & the owners were great to deal with. Perfect getaway for our family reunion and hope to return soon! Thank you again Kathie for opening your home to us.

A perfect family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had another amazing time at this house. We were four families living in the house and it did not feel crowded. Everyone had space to do what they wanted to do - read, play board games, talk, watch tv. And all six adults had a spacious kind size bed to sleep in while our 6 children (from three different families) slept in the two bunk bed rooms based on gender. The large kitchen gave us plenty of room to cook large family style meals every night that we often ate on the deck overlooking the yard and water. We also ate inside in the large dining room and kitchen. Again, the house easily accommodated us. The house is on a cove that provides a fun playground for kids of all ages. We kayaked, swam, sailed, and enjoyed all sorts of water activities. We also enjoyed the very close by West Dennis Beach and sometimes drove to other Cape Beaches. This is the third time we have been to the house and we look forward to coming back next year!

This beautiful home was the perfect place for our group! We had all travelled to the cape to Participate in the MS Challenge Walk and after 3 days and 50 miles, we couldn't have asked for more. It had everything we need for rest, relaxation and recreation.

We will for sure try to visit again

Amazing week!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! For four small families (12 people total), we had space to spare! Everything we needed was on site. Days spent at the beach, kayaking on the pond, and grilling out on the patio. A note about how awesome the owners were: the dryer died on Friday night. I called the owner Saturday AM at 9, by 1 PM a brand new dryer was in the laundry room! Shane and Kathie were great to work with - next time we're on the Cape, I'm coming back to this place!
