About John Berrigan

Our family's first Summer in Great Harbors was in 1976, and we have never left since. We enjoy beach and boating on the warm water in Nantucket Sound as well as gatherings with family and friends, and trips to Martha's Vineyard.

John Berrigan purchased this house in 2011

Why John Berrigan chose Cape Cod

We had been looking at properties for several years in Great Harbors and when were serious about buying, this property was available. From the many houses we looked at, this is the perfect house to rent so people can discover what we have known for years about Great Harbors and Falmouth. The house has spacious living areas and can sleep eight people. It is easy to keep clean with hardwood floors throughout.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood is very unique with its beautiful clubhouse, pool and tennis facilities right on Great Pond (salt water bay with access to Nantucket Sound). A full time management staff including lifeguards and maintenance people are employed during the Summer. There is no other neighborhood quite like it on the Lower Cape.

Second stay

  • 5 of 5

This place has proven to be a great find for me to escape the craziness that is London! I've been here twice and I'm already planning a third trip in 2019.

John is a really attentive host and the home is immaculately clean and well appointed. Air conditioning has been added since my first visit in 2015 - a much welcome addition which makes the home now perfect during those humid Cape Cod evenings.

The house is in a great location, away from the noise of the traditional 'touristy' bits of Falmouth, but still close enough to thouroghly enjoy them. The beaches are a 5 minute drive away, and large stores less than 10 minutes.

Everything you need for a family holiday is included. The outside area, which many have already written about, includes a gas BBQ grill, outdoor shower and an outside summer house. Inside you'll obviously find cable TV and internet, but there's also a great selection of books and board games and a table tennis table in the basement. Essentials for the beach are also catered for with several fold up beach chairs available, kids beach toys, cooler boxes and bicycles.

As mentioned before, John is a fantastic host. I didn't get to see him this time around, but he sent several emails before our arrival, sent me a message on the day of checkin to advise the house was ready much earlier than the 4pm check-in time and I was welcome to settle in earlier if I'd like, and then he messaged again half way through our holiday to make sure we were enjoying ourselves. An added bonus - both times I've stayed at this home - John has refunded my security deposit within one day of us checking out.... (also I'm pretty sure that in 2015 I accidentally broke a glass- he turned a blind eye to it... awesome service!)

So, all in all, a really relaxing trip to the Cape. I really can't recommend this place enough, and looking forward to visiting it again.

Cape house stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Clean and updated with a lot of room. It was just my wife and two kids so we had two bedrooms that weren't even used. Deck and backyard are great as well for enjoying the weather. Neighborhood is very nice and quiet. We'd stay here again next year.

Amazing property and location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely beautiful and the neighborhood was great! We loved the clubhouse and pool overlooking the ocean. The neighborhood was very quiet and great for family activities (biking, running, walking, etc).

The house was immaculate inside and out when we arrived. We met Monica and John on several occasions while we were there and they are great people! Another plus was that the house had central A/C and a nice fenced in backyard so the kids could play. We HIGHLY recommend this property and appreciate the hospitality of the owners.

The house was close to Falmouth Heights Beach. Wood Neck beach was our favorite with the natural lazy river that travelled from the ocean to marsh area. Wood Neck was a 10 minute car ride and parking was free. The house was also close to Stop and Shop, Ocean State Job Lot, Shaws and TJ Maxx.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This our second year staying in this house with my husband, our 2 little girls (4 &1), my in-laws and my mother. The house is clean, tastefully decorated and the layout is perfect! We love the deck and the pool is always a big hit. The addition of the ac this year made sleeping conditions comfortable when the humidity hit. John is super attentive and gets back to you very quickly with any questions. I love this house and location! We hope to be back next year!

Neat, clean and organized

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was immaculate with everything provided that we needed. Instructions and notes provided answers to most questions we had. Ping-pong table was a bonus for my son. A great value for this area. We would love to rent this house again.

Wonderful Vacation at this Family-Friendly Home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at John's home. Our first impression was of how clean it was! Nicely decorated but not cluttered, which was very helpful considering that we had a toddler with us. The backyard had a beautiful deck and was fenced in! And we made great use of the pool in the afternoons.

We would love to stay there again in the future. The house and neighborhood offered everything we could need, and more!
