About Diana Landau and Greg DeLory

We relocated in 2008 from San Francisco to Cape Cod, where Greg was born and raised, and recently found this wonderful house where we have room for our offices (Greg's an architect, Diana's a writer), guests, and a beautiful apartment as a bonus. We travel to the Bay Area often for business and to visit family and friends. We have a friendly cat named Willa (who isn't allowed in the apartment).

Diana Landau and Greg DeLory purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Diana Landau and Greg DeLory chose South Orleans

South Orleans is the quiet side of the Cape, which can get hectic in summer on the main roads! We love this part of Orleans for that reason, and because we have boating access to the whole Pleasant Bay ecosystem, all the way out to the Atlantic. It's also very convenient, almost equidistant from Orleans center and picturesque Chatham.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is freshly decorated, air-conditioned, impeccably equipped, and totally charming. The location on a private lane is supremely peaceful. Best of all, it's just a short walk to a stunning private beach where we and our guests have deeded rights. It's also very close to town landings (launch a kayak and land on the beach), bike trail, freshwater swimming lakes, and all in-town amenities. And short drives to famed Outer Cape villages: Wellfleet, Truro, Provincetown.

Tom's Roost worth a visit!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience at this property with Diana and Greg. The apartment was perfect for us, comfortable and stocked with all of the things we needed. It was quiet, in a very nice part of Cape Cod that we hadn't been to before, and well within range of a lot of fun beaches and activities. We didn't make as much use of the private beach as we thought we would, but we spent a great, quiet day out there searching for shells and relaxing. Overall, a great stay and we'd definitely recommend and consider staying again!

Our Orleans home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous. Had everything we needed for a week away for a family of four. Clean, spacious, very accommodating with all the supplies your home away at the cape would require. Beach chairs, umbrella, washer, dryer, a fully equipped kitchen. Diana and Greg are lovely. We cannot wait to go back. Thank you again......

We chose Tom's Roost for the location (tucked away, but accessible) and facilities (everything we needed!) and were not disappointed. The property was easy to find and gave us an abundance of touring options - we found our 'tip to toe' tour of the Cape a breeze!

We were also delighted to be able to leave the apartment door and be face-to-face with nature and able to continue with our exercise regime with regular runs along a route suggested by the owner. That didn't make us feel quite so guilty for indulging at the broad array of local eateries!

Diana & Greg were great hosts too, Always on hand if we had questions, but never in our faces.

Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect holiday home for our stay in Cape Cod. We were delighted with the apartment and its location. It is beautifully appointed, maintained and equipped, bright fresh and very comfortable. The location, provides access to some of the most gorgeous small towns and stunning beaches. Diana and Greg proved to be the perfect hosts, helpful and supportive but allowing us the peace and privacy that we needed to enjoy our first visit to Cape Cod.

Séjour agréable, à recommander !

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons grandement apprécié notre séjour chez Diana et Greg pour plusieurs raisons:

- Endroit calme et paisible;

- Appartement spacieux et très propre;

- Cuisine très complète;

- À proximité, en voiture, des plages, épiceries, fish market, liquor store, ...

- Localisation centrale pour ceux voulant visiter Martha's Vineyard et Provincetown;

- Les propriétaires sont respectueux, discrets, mais présents en cas de besoin;

- Petite plage privée à proximité (5 minutes à pied environ), mais nous y sommes allées qu'une demi-journée.

Malgré notre appréciation pour cet endroit, nous tenons à ajouter un point:

- L'endroit extérieur pourrait être plus optimal. Il n'y a qu'une minuscule table instable en fer forgée, pas confortable et peu de place pour un souper. Nous avons donc opté pour des repas à l'intérieur. Dommage lorsqu'il fait si beau.

Je recommande cet endroit sans hésitation ! 4.5 / 5.

Owner's Response: Cher Julie, Merci bien pour la bonne recommandation! Nous apprécions tes commentaires au sujet de Tom's Roost. J'ai besoin d'écriver en Anglais, pardon! About the outdoor space: yes, it is small, as advertised, and most guests do take their meals inside. We are exploring ways to make it more inviting -- including making the table more stable! Thanks again for helping us improve our guests' experience. -- Diana
