Guestbook comments from the owner

The Beach Heather really feels like it is my home away from home, it is exactly how I would want my Cape Cod home to look like, it was relaxing and comfortable as well as very clean.

Thank you for our wonderful stay.

Great, cozy, modern home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an 8 night stay in Joe's home. What a great place! Everything is clean and modern, and updated. I notice details and the homeowner went to great lengths to include things like three tier-levels of lighting in the master bedroom. Tray ceiling with lighting along the inside edges, recessed can lighting and another light below the ceiling fan. Nice touch! Joe was an excellent communicator getting back to me very quickly and always wanting to make our experience in his home memorable. I asked if he had a fire pit to sit around on chilly, October nights. He said he didn't but he promptly went out and bought one, along with some Duraflame logs for us!!!! Service above and beyond expectations. We are considering a longer stay next summer with our kids. Very convenient access to the bike path, one block from the home, and a great assortment of bikes (8) for you to use during your stay saving you big dollars if you have a large group and planned to rent bikes. Overall, I wouldn't hesitate to rent from Joe again. Fantastic home!!! Thanks, Joe, for the hospitality. Glenn

Beautiful Space

  • 5 of 5

The ladies in my family and I stayed at Beach Heather for 4 nights in October. Had a fantastic time, and LOVED the house. Large, open floor plan, plenty of rooms, nice yard, and great kitchen. Very clean and spacious. The owner was very helpful; giving us a rundown of what to expect in the house, the area, best places to eat, see, etc. LOVED the local beach and eateries, very friendly people & beautiful sights. Would highly recommend this place to others, as we would definitely return there should the opportunity present itself :)

Perfect family vacation - home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this adorable house for a week in Aug 2016 and it was perfect for our family. We have three young children (4yo, 2yo and 2mo) and the layout of the house was ideal, with kids bedrooms on one side, master on the other. The backyard was a great place for them to play and the bike path was right around the corner. Kitchen was well stocked with what we needed for meals at home. There were games, toys and puzzles for the boys. We were so close to beaches, restaurants and attractions in Harwich and Chatham. Highly recommend. We will definitely be back next year!

Lovely house. Clean, bright and comfortable. We have an elderly Aunt in Conn. and we have come to the U.S.A. several times and brought her to the Cape. This is probably the best house we have stayed in.

Comfy cape home

  • 4 of 5

This cape home is well taken care of with everything you could possibly need! The owners were easy to get ahold of, with quick responses! We were even coming in late so Joseph left the light on for us! The only reason I am not giving this house a 5th star is one of the back bedrooms had stains all over the carpet producing a sour smell:-/. Luckily I did not stay in that room and my MIL is not as sensitive to things as me. I would rent this house again! It was confidently located and easy to find your way to the main roads!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review, in regards to the carpet having a stain it was a prior renter that had damaged it however due to tight rental schedule I can only do replacements when it is not rented and we have been booked the entire spring thru fall. I am having the carpets replaced in both back bedrooms and was already set up to have done, as many renters can see the entire home has been upgraded from top to bottom and has been well taken care of. Most owners understand that things can happen as to anything being damaged or children making stains it is all part of life however please let the owners know so we are not left helpless left with no time to make the repairs needed. Thank you again, Joe Baker
