Perfect home for our first stay on the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific stay in Melisa and Ed's home on the Cape! The house itself was impeccably clean, adorably decorated and stocked with all the essentials. The location was central to anywhere we wanted to go and great restaurants within walking/biking distance (they even have 4 bikes for guests to use!). We are a family of 4, two adults and 2 boys (4 and 6) and the house size and amenities were all we needed. Even my boys started calling this the "button house" because it's as cute as a button!

Perfect for families with young children

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fantastic weeks at Melisa and Ed's lovely house at Dennisport. The house is lovely and you will have everything you need. However, the huge garden is something else and was perfect for our almost two year old daughter, who was in heaven playing all day in the shade of the large pine trees. The house is a few minutes drive from a number of great beaches and picturesque towns and harbours.

Melisa and Ed were extremely helpful and welcoming, as was Paul who dropped around to tend to the garden every few days!

I would highly recommend Cape Escape to anyone looking for a relaxing break!

We loved the "Cape Cod" cottage. It was located conviently near everything that we needed to get to during our stay. Dennis had great beaches, great food, and the people were awesome! Overall great vacation property and we hope to make it an annual vacation spot.

When they state "gem" they are not kidding- very sweet comfortable cottage that has everything you could need. They have thought of everything that you could or would want. The Manuel has everything from things to do restaurants to go to and how and where everything is in the house. Completely enjoyed our stay and they were very accommodating .

Perfect for what we needed

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent four nights at this property (ending September 24). The cottage was very well stocked with everything you could possibly think of. It is decorated in very tasteful colours and styles, and you can tell a lot of thought has gone into making it a very comfortable place to stay. The bed was extremely comfortable and the place had been cleaned very well. There was one hitch with respect to an error made by the cleaning company with regard to a shortage of clean linens and we contacted Melissa who had it put right as quickly as possible, and the cleaner showed up with a bottle of wine for us as an apology. It is very private property, with a very large fenced in yard that would be conducive for young kids to run around. We would return to the cottage.

In terms of Dennisport itself, there is not a lot to do there, although granted we were there "off season". We ate at a good local restaurant called Viera and there was a Mexican pizza place, both in walking distance, as well as a good coffee/biscotti place that makes great sandwiches. We walked on Dennisport beach every morning (about a ten minute drive) and did trips to Provincetown as well as beaches along the way, which we very much enjoyed. Good vacation, very comfortable accommodations.
