About the property

3 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath, 1 Outdoor Shower, Sleeps 6

Located less than one mile from Pleasant Bay Beach, this well-appointed cape style home is a short drive from many attractions on the lower Cape. Freshwater fishing and swimming enthusiasts will appreciate the proximity of Crystal and Pilgrim Lakes, while vacationers looking for local dining and shopping options can enjoy the offerings of Orleans center. This one-level home features an open and inviting kitchen, dining, and living space complete with hardwood flooring, central air-conditioning and modern appliances. The kitchen is fully stocked for a complete at-home dining experience, and the living room meets any entertainment demands with a HD LED television, Comcast cable, and WiFi throughout the home. Sliding glass doors lead to a spacious deck and patio, equipped with a gas grill and patio furniture, allowing guests to take in the cool, crisp Cape Cod evenings amongst friends and family. A Cape Cod staple, the outdoor shower is the most refreshing way to end a sunny day spent relaxing on Skaket Beach, or cycling on the Cape Cod Trail. Other amenities to complement the inviting home experience include a washer/dryer, outdoor picnic table and hammock, and a ping-pong table in the basement. A 1st floor half bath was recently added.

Why Kirstin Hood chose South Orleans

Cape Cod, a place where wonderful vacation memories are made. Families, such as my own, return each year to enjoy building sand castles at Nauset Beach, walking the trails at Cape Cod National Seashore or simply enjoying an evening together with family and friends. I invite you to come visit Orleans and begin your own Cape Cod tradition.

Came back a second time and still love it!

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this home previously and had a wonderful experience, so we decided to book it again for our trip this year. Before we even get to the house, I appreciate the communication and directions we get prior to our arrival. We've stayed in other rent homes over the year, and I can't say enough about how important it is to us to have good direction. Even when we're getting ready to leave they have a checklist for us to make sure we're doing what we need to do. The house is clean and all the furniture and appliances are in great condition.

Coming in to this trip, we'd been notified that an extra half bath had been added to the house which was great! For a family of four, having that extra restroom made a difference. They also just recently updated the outdoor shower (one of my personal favs when we go on vacation on the Cape)!

The house and surroundings are quiet and peaceful, and you're not far from Orleans or the beaches. Since we have to take a plane to get to the cape, I also appreciate that they leave some beach supplies and toys for us downstairs.

We plan to rent this home next year when we come to the cape, and I would highly recommend this place to others!

Exactly as described

  • 5 of 5

This house was well maintained. I was even pleasantly surprised with the linens, towels and furnishings. Place was clean and the foot print of the house larger than I expected given the pictures online. The responsiveness of the property manager Kirstin and detailed instructions throughout the whole process as well as instructions for use of items while there was impressive. Even while there I had two questions and she was very available and eager to help despite my not calling at ideal hours. In terms of my vacation, it was awesome. As the Cape always is! Having been going every year for the past 35+ years first as a child and now with my own children it only gets better. If you are new to the cape and rent this place you made the right choice with the rental and town. Orleans is right in the middle so day trips to upper and lower cape are easy plus you can get one beach pass for the week with skaket (perfect for toddlers) and nauset (adults and older kids -waves). My only recommendation is explore and pick your own restaurants. I have my own favorites, few of which were on their list probably because the are in neighboring towns!
