Overview

Cape Cod 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 Cape Cod

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!

Amazing Family Christmas!

  • 5 of 5

Paul and Mary's place was in the perfect location, in the most beautiful area of Chatham! My family and our pet dog, Cooper came for Christmas 2015, and were lucky enough to have unseasonably warm weather. We were also lucky enough to be just a short walk from the beach and a quick drive to main street in Chatham! Martha was hands down, the most attentive and helpful home owner I have ever worked with. She was able to answer all of my questions, and offer some lovely suggestions for our time in Chatham. Paul and Mary's place was the perfect, cozy and spacious home for 5 adults and our large lab mix, Cooper. We were able to light a warm fire in the living room, and still enjoy lunches on the deck. The house was filled with every last detail you could possibly imagine, from toiletries in every bathroom, bedding, towels, beach chairs and even a completely stocked kitchen, our vacation felt more like we were visiting in a friend's home. We were able to enjoy the calm waves of the ocean, local christmas lights, and my annual homemade cape cod Lobster bisque! We will absolutely be coming back to visit Paul and Mary's place, and look forward to the many more memories we will be making as a family in this stunning home.

Owner's Response: Wow thanks so much for this review, it makes me think I should be spending Christmas there! Having visitors like you who appreciate our efforts is so gratifying, thanks for noticing because we try to make it perfect. Come back anytime, and I'm glad Cooper liked it too. cheers, Martha

Great vacation in a great house!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at this home at it was a WONDERFUL vacation for all. Martha answered all of my questions before our trip and checked in with us during the week as well. The house was spotless upon our arrival and it was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need! Every couple had their own bedroom AND bathroom and many enjoyed the outdoor shower as well. The kitchen made cooking and grilling there so easy and enjoyable. The neighborhood is very peaceful and it is a short walk to Forest Beach. All bed linens and beach towels are provided as well which makes packing a breeze. I hope to return to this home again in the future. Thanks Martha!

Wonderful home on the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find such a gem of a rental home for our Cape Cod vacation. The house is pristine and stocked with everything that is needed for our family. Martha could not have been more accommodating and helpful. quiet neighborhood, conveniently located to many sights on Cape Cod. just a ten minute trip to the Nantucket Ferry-- we made a day trip there.

just a lovely experience. We have never felt like a rental house was truly our home, but this lovely house, beautiful gardens and helpful caretakers certainly made us feel that way.

Second Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this house, and it was just a wonderful as last year. The house is very well stocked with high quality linens and towels, lots of beach equipment for adults and kids, and has a large well stocked kitchen. Three very comfortable bedrooms work great for our family, and the yard, garden, and deck are very nice, as well as beautiful.

Forest Beach is a very nice, easy walk from the house. We also went to Ridgevale Beach, which was wonderful for kites, crabs, wading with children and just hanging around. The house is also very close to Schoolhouse Ice Cream, which was a frequent stop for our family.

Wonderful sisters getaway weekend!

  • 5 of 5

4 of us (sisters) stayed in Martha's beautiful home for the weekend! It has everything you could possibly need, and the location is excellent. Forest Beach is a short walk - we arrived just in time to see the sun lowering over the water - gorgeous! When we got to the house it was spotless, beds were very comfortable, and we loved the decor. One of us was in contact with Martha before we arrived - she said Martha was very helpful and she even checked in with us after we got there. We agreed we would all stay here again in a second - we didn't want to leave! Thanks Martha!

Great Property and Owner!

  • 5 of 5

This was mine and my husband's first visit to the Cape. We had a great time! The house had everything we needed and was in a very convenient location. The neighborhood was quiet and was a great place to run or walk and is very close to the paved bike trail. Many of the properties require you to bring your own linens, toiletries, etc. This would have been very difficult since we were traveling by air. The owner provided EVERYTHING, including laundry detergent. She contacted us several times before our visit and was quick to get back to us if we had a question. She also provided a visitor's booklet which included their favorite restaurants, grocery stores, things to do, etc. If we make it back to Cape Cod, we will DEFINATELY stay at this property. I will also be passing this property info along to any friends or family who are planning to vacation there. I would HIGHLY recommend this property!
