Fantastic rental for reuniting family at the Cape

  • 5 of 5

Our second year renting 17 Summer. Gathered family from Connecticut, Colorado, and Montana for the week. Wonderful! Kids loved the pool ... mornings on the beach, afternoons at the pool. So parents got to sit and chat in the shade while the kids played. Great place to relax and let families re-unite. And Dennis Port is a great location on the Cape -- Hyannis one direction and Chatham the other. A block or so from the local beach (though our family started their days at beaches all over the Cape).

Beautifully furnished and very well equipped. Very well maintained -- owner obviously loves the home and goes out of his way to welcome new guests. Hope he knows how much joy the home has brought to other families. Happy to find this year that prior renters had cleaned the place well, and we tried to leave it better than we found it, too. It's the kind of place where that just seem the right thing to do!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughts and reflections about your stay at Summer St in DennisPort this summer. I frankly am overwhelmed with joy when, groups of friends, golfers, retired teachers, and grand parents speak of cherished memories and cherished moments formed at Summer St. The people the week before wrote " What a beautiful wonderful place. I loved my summer vacation." The reality though is that the greatest and most lasting gifts come from relationships and sharing and I'm thrilled to be a part of that. Richard

Owner's Response: I am always overwhelmed to find the property used well yet returned as if it were never used, thank you. The homestead is designed for and used by multiple families such as yours and it is such a pleasure to hear comments about the happiness and joy that its use brings. Thanks again. Richard

Fire pit and pool are beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here last year, and we couldn't wait to get back. It's just as beautiful as ever. We had no idea about the new glass fire pit. We got as much use and enjoyment from it as we did the pool and spa. The light and heat of the fire pit and accent lights of the pool at night are beautiful! Love the natural privacy of the property especially the pool area. Can't wait until next year!

Classic Cape is beautifully appointed. The large kitchen and comfortable living space easily accommodated our extended family. The owner actually delivered fresh flowers to us. Easy walk to the beach and Sunday School for ice cream. We were thrilled with the Pool and Jacuzzi. Thumbs up. Kids and I are looking forward to staying next season.

Truly great house, disappointed in Martha Murra

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week at the end of the summer. The house was lovely - very new and clean and spacious. The pool was also extremely nice and the spa worked well too. It's a nice location where you can walk to a (very small) beach at the end of the street and also to ice cream and a couple small restaurants. The only negative is the layout of the property. The pool is across the driveway from the front of the house (hard to watch kids unless you are across the yard actually in the pool area) and the gas grill is out in a very small back yard area off by itself. So, when you are cooking, you're isolated from everyone else. The check-in and check-out process was GREAT. Among the best I've encountered.

It was VERY unsatisfying how we were treated by Martha Murray rentals after our stay. We were given an offer to reserve the "Same week" for next year. I immediately (the day after our stay) responded to this offer and said "Yes, we'd like it." They emailed back and said "That week is already booked. Would you like a different week?" So, I checked the calendar, and there was only one week available in August next year, and the rate was a 50% increase (!!!!) versus what we paid this year. I emailed Martha Murray back to confirm that. No response whatsoever. Clearly, since the house is basically booked up for 2016 already, they don't care about me anymore. Such a bummer after a truly great house and rental process.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review our home at 17 Summer Street. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. This property is our one exception to the rule when it comes to in "pre" booking. Due to the fact that this home is in such demand, we start taking reservations for 2016 at the beginning of the 2015 season. Martha Murray Vacation rentals appreciates all of their tenants, whether previous or current. If an email response was missed, we truly apologize for that, and will follow up with you today.

Spectacular Cape Cod Home

  • 5 of 5

It is with great pleasure that I write this review for this spectacular property on Cape Cod! This home is without a doubt one of the nicest homes we have ever stayed in. We look forward to our stay on Summer Street each year. We call it "Our home away from home." This home is furnished beautifully with plenty of space for our group..the well appointed gourmet kitchen is lovely to cook in and the bedrooms and bathrooms are situated in such a way that you can feel a sense of privacy when you need to. The gorgeous pool and spa are an extra added bonus offering spacious seating and even has it's own bathroom! Adjacent to the pool is a grassy area where we have some exciting games of croquet while the others cheer us on from the pool. This home is meticulously maintained and always very clean. Mr. Santos is a very nice man who is very welcoming and helpful should you have any questions. We would highly recommend this property located in the town of Dennisport which is very centrally located on the Cape. It makes travel in either direction very doable. We love our time spent on Summer Street and we look forward to it each year! We appreciate Mr. Santos sharing his beautiful home with us!
