Fall Magnificent

To the Conners Family

Thanks for sharing your lovely home with us. We have rented on the Cape for many years and this was a true winner! Love, love the Beachy/Pottery Barn feel. Such special touches with oars on walls, pretty tables and chairs on the breezeway, Cape Cod photos and prints, and several signs with great sayings for relaxing and reflecting.

The updates throughout the house were appreciated from the kitchen, to the bathrooms, to new or renovated flooring. You can feel that a family loves this house and looks forward to their special times here each year.

The location cannot be beat. This is our 4th rental in Falmouth and the best so far. Walking/Riding distance to the harbor, town, and the bike path. The trifecta!!

As you so graciously say in your journal-We wish your family sun filled skies and memorable days on your journey as a family!

Perfect family week

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of our family stayed happily and comfortably in this spacious house. It is almost like two attached houses. So when the baby was sleeping in one wing, the adults could meet in the other wing for games, conversation, TV. Walk everywhere. Best memories.

Great house!

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a week in this beautiful house for the first time and we are already looking forward to coming back next year. The location is ideal to beaches, restaurants, and Falmouth main street shops. The house is also perfect for having multiple families under one roof. The guest suite offers great privacy and plenty of space. You can't go wrong with this place!

Judith and Bob Nilson - Williamsburg, VA

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for the 7 adults and 2 toddlers with separate living quarters and bathrooms. Our 3 adult kids had 4 stipulations: Good location, 3 baths +, air conditioning, and outside shower! We lived in Falmouth for 16 years so we know the area. My local friend found this for us. We loved the cleanliness, "beachy"décor and that it had 3 queen sized beds! Mike and Maureen were great in correspondence. This was ideal and if the whole family flies in from VA and FL again we will want this property!! Thank you!

Cape Cod Comfort

  • 5 of 5

We are ready missing our Falmouth vacation. We had a lovely time at Mike and Maureen's home--spacious, clean, convenient, quiet, and totally relaxing. Our stay from beginning to end was seamless. Great area for sights--loved "the Knob" in Woods Hole, beaches, biking, shopping, bowling, ice cream at Ben and Bill's!!. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Until next time.....
