Overview

South Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-9)

Everything in this Chatham retreat feels fresh and new, completely rebuilt in 2008. You'll find hotel-quality accommodations for 3 couples or a family, with all the comforts of home.

When you arrive you will find that our architect maximized light, air, and views, with great flow from the upstairs vaulted bedroom ceilings to the open plan downstairs. The spacious front and back decks overlook gorgeous landscaping and neighboring woods. From daffodils to hibiscus, we designed our organic gardens for lots of color throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons, attracting abundant wildlife.

We are in a great location, walk along protected wetlands to lovely Forest Beach, where you can find your own stretch of sand away from the crowds. It's also a short walk to a great cafe and wonderful upscale restaurant.

Inside, each of the three bedrooms has its own bathroom, TV, DVD, and radio/Ipod port. The master suite has a tempurpedic queen bed and full bath. The other two bedrooms can be made up as twin sets or king, and contain all new pillowtop mattresses with hotel quality linens. There is a brand new ping pong table in our basement rec-room/art studio, and even beach towels are provided.

Our home is also handicap accessible, complying as much as was possible to ADA requirements on the entire first floor. Both front and back decks are wheelchair accessible. The downstairs bedroom flows into a shower bathroom with grab bars and also grab bars around the toilet. The upstairs back bathroom with shower also has grab bars. The upstairs bedrooms have a lofty feel with lots of windows and light, and we installed two separately zoned central air and heating systems (one upstairs and one downstairs) for your year round comfort.

Our living room, with two six foot sofas, two comfy club chairs, and extensive library for all ages, makes a great room to entertain and enjoy a book, game, or movie with a nice fire. This space flows into a brand new cook's kitchen, fully equipped with whatever you may need for any kind of feast. We have ample dishware and cookware for you and all your guests - no foraging for a corkscrew here! All of our appliances are top quality, including an extra full size refrigerator/freezer in the basement for your overflow drinks and produce.

An eight to ten minute walk from our front door leads you to Forest Beach on Nantucket Sound for swimming, birding, and water sports. If you want to drive your gear down there, parking is free. Following Forest Beach or the marsh path towards Chatham town, you will find our beautiful estuary. Watch the tides come and go, enjoy the shells and other ocean treasures at low tide. Go the other way on Forest Beach Road and you can easily walk to the Box Office Cafe, Pisces Restaurant, the Cape Cod bicycle path and Highway 28. A five to ten minute drive takes you to the Cape Cod National Seashore and all kinds of beaches, both fresh and salt water ponds, and eateries.

We also enjoy a small public park, a five minute walk from our front door, which includes a tennis court, basketball hoop, and jungle gym for the little ones. Our neighborhood is quiet and safe, with woodsy shortcuts between beaches and plenty of nature for the whole family to explore. Our own gardens are organically grown and we include numerous native plants as well as the old favorites, with a nice lawn and eye for seasonal color changes.

Our expansion of the original family home has created a wonderful and workable vacation getaway, where groups can gather for fun and scatter for privacy. In addition to the three bathrooms, we have a spacious outside shower with ramp and grab bars, and there is ample off street parking.

The ping pong rec room in our basement shares the space with a large laundry area and art studio with lots of natural light. There are two tv's down there and sofa, with plenty of room to fold and iron clothes or just hide out.

At every turn we have provided for our renters all those comforts that we ourselves enjoy, with amenities that will exceed your every expectation. Once you have experienced Paul & Mary's Place, you'll never want to go anywhere else.

About Martha Newman

I am an artist, mostly painter, specializing in wildlife, such as endangered species, and pet portraits. I have been lucky to enjoy both coasts, living most of the year in Redondo Beach California.

Martha Newman purchased this house in 2007

Why Martha Newman chose Chatham

My husband and I inherited the original home from his family and we began our remodeling in 2007.

What makes this house unique

Mostly I enjoy the fresh water pond swimming - this is not to be had where I live in LA and I love watching the trout and turtles swimming around in that spring fed environment. I also adore eating seafood and the Cape has the best.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We've enjoyed our time at the Cape, reconnecting with family and nature. There's a great energy in this place. We also love the eclectic artwork! It's just like home, only better!

Wonderful house for a restful vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd summer we stayed at this beautiful house in S. Chatham and it was as nice as always. This spacious house is equipped with state of the art appliances and was immaculate with all the amenities of home. It is beautifully landscaped and tastefully decorated with beautiful hardwood floors throughout. The basement has a new ping pong table which we always enjoy. Chatham is a great town with lots of child-friendly restaurants with great food and beautiful beaches and playgrounds. There is a small railroad museum near the fire station which is always a hit with our grandsons. The owner is extremely accommodating and truly went out of her way to make our stay as memorable as possible. We look forward to returning next summer!

Beautiful and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful and so comfortable! Warm and inviting, this home is beautifully decorated. The beds are super comfy and the central air was so nice after a hot day at the beach. Everything is provided, including sheets and towels. The neighborhood is adorable and quiet!

Five Star Perfection

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you drive into the driveway, you know you have made a good choice. The first impression of Paul and Mary's place is one of comfort and beauty. In July, the front yard is filled with summer flowers--hydrangas, black-eye susans, coneflowers. A small deck off the front entrance overlooks this garden and is a lovely place for pre-dinner drinks. Inside, every attention to detail is evident. Kitchen is well-stocked right down to the salad spinner; appliances are top quality. Bedrooms are furnished with comfortable top-quality linens and toiletries are supplied. We loved grilling and eating dinner on the back deck.

We had a three week booking and friends and family came and went. Everyone enjoyed the quiet neighborhood, the 10 minute walk to the beach, the 10 minute walk to a gourmet restaurant. The charming town of Chatham is a 10 minute drive and offers shopping, restaurants, Friday night lobster dinner at the Methodist Church.

You really couldn't be in a better place. This house is the very best beach house we have ever rented. Highly Recommend!

Beautiful home; well cared for an fully equipped

  • 5 of 5

We found the home fully equipped. Generous amounts of towels, basic cleaning and paper supplies, soap and shampoo. 2 nice bicycles; one needing a flat repaired. Gas grill worked. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated with lots of natural sunlight and comfortable beds.

We paid a premium for this home in order to have the handicapped accessible features. However, it was also a bonus that it was so well-equipped. We had lobster night for our extended family of 20+ one evening and had plenty of plates, utensils, pots and pans and seating for everyone.

We loved walking down to Forest Beach, which is less than 10 minutes on foot.

The owner Martha is a very positive, helpful person and I found her very available for questions.

I would definitely recommend this home!

Property 354414

  • 5 of 5

I previously reviewed this property that my family stayed at. I mistakenly gave a 4 star rating instead of a 5 star rating and called to change it and was assured on the phone this would be taken care of. Since it has not been done I want to state that this home deserves a 5 star rating as it was everything we expected and so much more.

I am sorry for the mixup.

Owner's Response: Hey Shirley, I'm so grateful you took the time for this! I was thinking that was what happened, when you slide across the stars sometimes one drops off. Thanks so much for the correction, and cheers always! Martha

Excellent Stay in South Chatham

  • 5 of 5

This house is ideal for our family of four adults, two young children, and a dog. The house is large and in excellent condition. The three bedrooms are all large, with very comfortable beds. The living room and kitchen are both large and well equipped. There is a large deck on the rear of the house that is easy to keep our dog on without worry about her slipping away. The deck is very nicely furnished with a nice grill that we always use frequently during our stay. And the gardens are beautiful, even though we go early in the season before many of the flowers are fully out. The house has all the beach equipment you would need, a good washer and dryer, a nice roomy pantry and roomy refrigerator.

The house is an easy walk to Forest Beach, which is a very important factor for us. It is easy to walk down to the water with the children without having to load up a car. The neighborhood is also nice for walking around, as the streets are pretty but not busy with cars. Great for using a balance bike with our grandson or walking the dog or a stroller.

We have stayed here for three years and find it ideal.
