About John Muldoon

My family has always had a home in Chatham. When I was growing up I spent my summers and many weekends throughout the year in Chatham. It has always been my home away from home, my place to connect with family and friends. I am fortunate to carry on this tradition with my wife Ruby and son Liam. We enjoy sharing this wonderful experience with other families to create their own family memories .

John Muldoon purchased this house in 1980

Why John Muldoon chose Chatham

This location is perfect. Chatham is centrally located on the Cape, it is far enough from the busyness of the village center to relax and enjoy the peace and quite but close enough to all the conveniences Chatham has to offer. Forest Beach is 5 to 10 minute walk at 4/10 of a mile. This natural beach is unique and very private and does not require a parking pass or paid admission unlike the larger busier beaches. There are also several town beaches minutes away to choose from, each with its own personality or even a calm fresh water kettle pond. The beautiful Cape bike trail is only a 5 minute ride. There is even a newly surfaced public tennis court, basketball hoop with kids climbing play area within a 5 minutes walk.

What makes this house unique

Tucked away at the end of a quite dead end lane this home has all the comforts of home and is beautifully landscaped with flower and herb gardens and has a great patio with new commercial infrared stainless steel grill & electric retractable awning to enjoy the best of the outdoors. Inside is bright and an open concept with skylights in the kitchen and in the cathedral ceiling of the sun room. New kitchen with commercial stainless steel Italian 'Verona' stove & beautiful new maple hardwood floors throughout.

Fabulous Family Vacation in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Chatham was awesome from beginning to end. Our check in time was 5 o'clock, but John emailed me around 2 to say that the house was cleaned and ready to move in. We were all very excited to be able to unpack and start relaxing on the Cape.

The house was very comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck and watching television in the family which was very spacious for the 6 of us.( 4 adults and 2 children). The beds were comforable and the kids enjoyed the bunk beds which were a novelty for them.

It was especially nice to have air conditioning since it was quite hot while we were there.

Going to the beach( and we tried several) was easy since there were 6 beach chairs, beach towels and even pails and shovels for the kids.

There were also many bikes to choose and a favorite activity was biking to Forest beach later in the day. My granddaughter easpecially like the bicycle built for 2 and she would ride in back with her dad. There were also helmets provided. We didn't utilize them, but there were also boogie boards and large tubes for swimming.

The kitchen was well equipped and supplied with all the necessities. The washer and dryer worked well and was very convenient to use.

One floor living was very easy!

The only criticism I have is the shower head in the master bathroom was hard to position.

All in all, everything was wonderful and we thank John and Ruby for letting us relax in their home.

John also was very quick with e-mail responses.

Thanks for everything, John and Ruby

All of what we were anticipating and more! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The house was exquisite; clean, in excellent repair, roomy and a very relaxing atmosphere. The setting of the home on the cup-de-sac made for a very peaceful and quiet location. The owner, John Muldoon, was also very responsive and a gracious host. A highlight was the proximity of the beach. With beach paraphernalia and children we drove each day (2 cars) and never had a problem parking. It was as if we had our own private beach to enjoy. Two weeks wasn't enough. It was very hard to leave. I highly recommend this home. It absolutely deserves Five Stars!!!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The vacation was lovely. Our stay at this house was superb!! The property is exactly as described, spacious, extremely clean, nicely decorated. It has a beach and sailing motif that gives a relaxing vacation feel to the house. It is a quiet location and completely peaceful. This house is extremely comfortable and includes all the comforts of home. The kitchen is very well equipped, with chef’s stove/oven, and a Starbucks coffee machine which makes excellent espresso. The breakfast bar seats three and the large dining table will fit eight to ten people.

The location is ideal for going to places around the Cape. There is a beach within walking distance. The communication with the owners was straightforward. John & Ruby are very friendly and accommodating, always just a phone call away when we had questions. They recommended great places to explore and to dine, such as The Chatham Fish market, which has a clam chowder that is to die for and very affordable, and for incredible Lobster rolls head to Sir Cricket’s and for a delicious dinner they suggested “Del Mar” restaurant, which was outstanding. Excellent hosts. The welcome bottle of wine was very much appreciated.

Thank you so much John & Ruby for letting us share your wonderful house.

We highly recommend this property.

Centrally located at the “elbow” of Cape Cod, Chatham is a true Cape gem. Said to be as quaint as Nantucket without the boat ride, enjoy main street and its unique shops, restaurants, theaters and inns. Relax at the scenic beaches perfect for sunning, swimming, boogie-boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, or sailing. If the salt water is not your thing, try one of the calm spring feed glacial kettle ponds which is a great alternative for young kids. Enjoy the public golf. There is a newly surfaced public tennis courses within walking distance. Check out the 26-mile Cape Cod bike trail perfect for both avid cyclists and families. For some unique adventure hop on a water taxi at The Chatham Fish Pier to your private space on secluded South Beach or explore Monomoy Island. Try deep-sea fishing, whale or seal watching, kite boarding, or catch the island ferries to the Vineyard or Nantucket. Kids love the go-carts, bumper boats, skateboard park and miniature golf. In the evenings, enjoy the 81 year old traditional downtown Friday Night Band Concerts in the park or take in a CCBL, Cape Cod Baseball League, Chatham Anglers game at Veterans Field, a play at the outstanding Monomoy summer theater, Like most people, you may find yourself coming back, year after year.
