" Thank you so much for a lovely stay in Orleans! We love the house. The deck is such a peaceful and tranquil spot-so perfect in the early morning for tea and to enjoy at sunset time. We brought our kayaks and loved paddling around to all the ponds/coves.
Our family had a great week and will have many wonderful memories of our beach time at Skaket and Nauset beach and scenic meals on your deck.
Many thanks and hope your family continues to enjoy all the cape has to offer!"
A beautifully maintained home in the most serene setting, right on the pond with a porch to spend time gazing at the scenery and wildlife in and around the pond. great outdoor shower, rooms are spacious and cheery, kitchen is clean and pretty. washing dishes in the sink (even though there is a dishwasher) is a pleasure because the window right above the sink affords you a beautiful view. Centrally located in Orleans and wonderfully close to two of the best beaches on the Cape; Nauset Beach (with daily seal sightings and great waves) and the quieter Skaket Beach (whose low tide goes out for at least a mile creating a mile of shallow, calm water with sand bars). We had a great time. Thanks!
We had a great vacation here. The view off the deck was spectacular, with seals popping up out of the water and all kinds of birds flying through, particularly at dusk. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable for our family; the outdoor shower was a particular treat. The location is great-- tucked away on a small road in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to both Nauset and Skaket beaches and everything in town. We'd love to come back.
The location is terrific. It is less than 5 minutes to drive to Nauset Beach and a 12 minute drive to Skaket Beach. The owners are responsive. The view off of the back porch is great over the lake. We never heard or saw the neighbors. The outdoor shower was terrific. Unfortunately, there are some things you need to know before you book:
There is no permissible access to the dock and no river access without having to walk through tall grass. We thought the deck would be usable. As a result, we did not go into the river.
Every rental we have used for 10 years has provided a beach parking pass. Not this property. It's not a lot of money, but I would have assumed that it would be included. Maybe Orleans does not allow it.
When we arrived at the house, there was no laundry detergent, no paper towels, no hand towels, and, even though we knew we had to bring our own towels and sheets and blankets and pillows, we did not expect to have to bring all of these things. Other houses that cost less money had them included.
We saw the cleaning crew go into the house. I'm not sure what my cleaning charge paid for. There was still coffee stains on the floor and the room upstairs did not smell clean at all. There were spiders and bugs, including ants. The couch smelled. Again, I know it's the Cape, but for this money... I have spent less and received more.
We were not allowed in until 4, but we had to be out by 9:30 am. That's a long time to clean.
None of the rooms had overhead lights, except the kitchen.
We knew there was no central air, so that's not an issue, but some of the Window ACs were low or out of freon and didn't cool the room.
Master bed shakes and squeaks.
The front door was broken and unusable.
I know the purpose is not to watch TV, but they only have the most basic of cable with only network channels - no NESN (no Red Sox) and the only way to access non-network tv (Netflix) was through an HDMI cord.
Again, based on comparable houses, I would not have expected these issues. I wish I had known. We had a great trip and great weather. We just wished the house had more to offer. Sorry
We had a great time at this pretty spot! The house is laid out well and has all the amenities we wanted, but the real draw is the view off of the spacious back deck. The pond (really, the end point of Pleasant Bay) is beautiful at all hours and draws seals up from the ocean, herons, and hawks -- and we kayaked almost every day right from the back yard. It is definitely on our list for our next Cape vacation.
Picture Perfect vacation home. My family of 5 (3 teens) enjoyed our week long stay here in August 2015. What was important to us was to have a water view, and this certainly fit the bill. It is so calming to sit morning with our coffee, or in the afternoon with a glass of wine. We brought our kayaks and we easily could go off two at a time for an outing. It was fun to explore! The house had all the comforts of home, and is nicely decorated. We explored the Cape, since it was our first time, and went to a different beach each day. This home was a perfect fit for us!
This is a beautiful home on a peaceful property with water views. From the deck you can observe lots of wildlife including seals, cranes and loads of songbirds.The home is bright and comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen and 3 showers (one outdoor - which is all you need!). Good working air conditioning window units are helpful for humid evenings. The home is also conveniently located within a short drive to the public beach and good restaurants. It is also a good neighborhood for morning or evening walks. If you walk to end of Barley Neck you can walk along the shoreline! For the technology dependent, the wi-fi works wonderfully, even with multiple users...but it's best to enjoy the great outdoors here!
Orleans is situated right at the elbow of Cape Cod, MA. It is home to the nationally recognized Nauset Beach. The town is a terrific mixture of local shops, crafts, markets and restaurants running from kid friendly to gourmet food. For those baseball fans, the Cardinals practice here, with folks watching the games each week from the lawn.
Other Activities: boating, kayaking, canoeing, whale watching, mini golf, historic site seeing, Local theater and outdoor concerts
