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 South 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. At this time of the year we are known world-wide for the unique "Cape Light" that photographers prize. Check out the way light bounces off the tidal flow as it makes the shore. My husband enjoys the walking trail behind the dunes at the end of Forest Beach Road that has sweeping views of the tidal wetlands. It has a lot of protected nesting spots for large and small birds. It ends at an estuary that runs into Taylor Pond, a quiet peaceful respite with only the sounds of gulls and waves on the beach.

A great time!
Location of this property was key. A quick walk to a private beach was perfect! Not always easy finding 3 bedrooms each with a bathroom. Traveling with friends is always fun but having your own space was important. This property offered just that. Thank you for answering our questions quickly & having all details at our fingertips. The kitchen table as well at patio space fit us all with plenty of room. We had a great time! Thank you!
We had a WONDERFUL stay at Martha's beautiful home! She has truly thought of everything! This home does not feel like a rental at all! The entire home and all of its contents are there for your use - including beach gear, towels, bed linens, kitchen items (spices and all)! We loved the layout of the house. Every room has a bathroom (one is en suite, other 2 are in hallway beside room). The basement laundry, ping pong table and additional living area were much appreciated! The home was EXTREMELY clean and well-maintained. The yard was beautifully manicured! We loved the quiet neighborhood which was nice for walking our dog. The beach is nice and only about a 10 minute walk away. The central location of this home is perfect for making trips to the other areas of the Cape. Martha was the perfect hostess! She was quick to respond to my phone call when I had a problem upon check-in and immediately had it corrected. She maintained contact with me prior to our stay to make sure that we had everything that we needed. Check-in and check-out couldn't have been easier! It's a rare place that doesn't have all kinds of requirements that you must do prior to leaving. We appreciated not having to complete a check list on a day that's already hectic. We would DEFINITELY stay here again! Thanks, Martha!
Wow we live for reviews like this, I feel like you really get me! Andrea was also the ideal guest, and I sure hope she comes back. This Southern gal has never understood why some homeowners require their guests on vacation to be housekeepers last day, we want you to feel like you have been guests in our home with all the bells and whistles. We don't lock up anything and we want you to have everything you need. In this case I feel so appreciated...thanks again for choosing Paul & Mary's Place.
Great location and accessibility
We had a lovely weekend getaway with my in laws. The location and house were perfect for our needs. We’d definitely visit again!
Labor Day weekend getaway!
Perfectly situated for our weekend of exploring the towns of Chatham and Harwich Port. The home has everything you could possibly need!
Pleasant, comfortable house--everything you need
The house is in a convenient location in a quiet neighborhood. It is very well equipped with good and abundant linens, Bosch appliances, excellent showers and comfortable beds. It is roomy, light and airy with excellent windows. It was nice to have a key pad and not have to deal with keys. The day ferry to Nantucket was nearby and in a charming harbor. The owner was responsive and gave good instructions.
About the only negative is if you want to be right on the water. Thanks to the owners for facilitating a nice girls' biking getaway.
Two miles to ferry boats to Nantucket Island, easy drive to boat tours of Monomoy seals and outlying islands, day trips available to Martha's vineyard, lots of art galleries nearby.
