Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This warm and inviting contemporary cape with in-ground swimming pool sits on an acre corner lot in a quiet private neighborhood on top of hill with bay side views. Located off Rt. 6A, it is close to Barnstable Village, Hyannis, and convenient to the beaches, shopping, golf, boating, and restaurants. We provide a Branstable beach pass for the summer rentals.

Our home welcomes guests with an open floor plan, wood burning fireplace, flat screen cable TV, WiFi, updated fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator with ice-maker, microwave, dishwasher and electric stove) gas heat, ceiling fans, hardwood floors throughout, outdoor shower, laundry room and driveway for 6 cars.

The house was designed with the outdoors in mind. The large in-ground pool off the lower level is surrounded by a large deck with a cabaña and an 8 person dining table under the adjacent pergola. An additional high table and chaise lounges along with a BBQ grill makes it the perfect spot to relax or entertain – great to come back to after a day at the beach! An added bonus is the fire pit ready to roast marshmallows and just to relax by on a chilly evening. Off the open plan living and dining rooms through a wall of glass sliding doors and overlooking the pool area is a large (14 x 30ft) deck with a dining table and many chairs. Another great lounging area.

The house has 3 levels including a walk out lower level. On the top floor there are two bedrooms (one king and the other with 2 twin beds) and one full bath. Both bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open to a deck the length of the house with views of Cape Cod Bay; on a clear day you can see the tip of the cape and Provincetown. The first floor has an open floor plan with the kitchen, dining and living rooms, with working fireplace. It is very bright and airy with 2 large (5 foot) sliding glass doors that open to a very large deck fully furnished with a table, chairs chaise lounges, etc. The third bedroom with queen bed is on the first floor and window a/c. There is also another bathroom with a shower. On the lower level there is a laundry room, storage room and a play room. That level opens out to the back yard with the in-ground pool, cabana and deck with seating and unbrellas. We provide a binder full of restaurant suggestions, listing of stores and activities.

A fantastic holiday in a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in this lovely house. It is in a great location, and very well equipped for a family holiday. The pool was much enjoyed, and the beach pass was a huge bonus. Eileen was very helpful, and answered any questions we had straight away. We can't wait to come back!

This property was beautiful and the owners really thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were looking for a vacation rental that could accommodate a group with kids, have a pool, be central to beaches, resteraunts, and shops. This property met our criteria and the house and yard looked great in the pictures so we decided to go with it. When we first arrived we were pleasantly surprised to find that the house and yard was even more beautiful than expected, the pictures don't do it justice. The house was immaculate and the pool looked very inviting. You could tell that the owner put a lot of effort into making your stay an enjoyable one cause they thought of everything you would possibly need on your vacation. The house was stocked with books, games, cooking utensils, sheets, towels, detergents, paper products, cable TV, etc..The pool area was also well thought out with plenty of seating, a dining area, and fire pit. Even firewood and sticks for smores were available. I can't say enough here, we kept saying all week "wow they really thought of everything".

Overall my family and I had a wonderful experience and would definitely recommend this property.

Gorgeous house and property! Owners were wonderful to deal with!

  • 5 of 5

We immensely enjoyed our vacation on the Cape. The house was gorgeous and very clean. We loved being pool side and our kids (ages 10 and 6) especially enjoyed having the heated pool! We hope to return to Cape Cod again in the future and would definitely reach out to the owners again! Thank you for opening your gorgeous home up to us for our family vacation!

Lovely Cape Cod Stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife, our 2 and 4 year old and me have just come back from a lovely week at Eileen's house in Cape Cod. We live in the UK and so we don't know Cape Cod particularly well but we had a great time - thank you so much for opening the house to us.

The property was very much as stated on HomeAway with all the facilities and amenities listed. Eileen has clearly rented for a while as she was also able to provide comprehensive and really helpful guidance and advice around things to do in the area (restaurants, visits, ice cream stops! etc). She was always very responsive and friendly from the time of enquiry up until the day we left and made our trip nice and easy.

The beach pass gave us access to some really nice local private beaches which all four of us really enjoyed and the pool was lovely and warm and well gated off for a family like us (with two little ones...). The property was lovely and clean and while we did not take enough advantage of all the outdoor cooking and dining options given the age of the kids and the fact they are located quite near the pool, we would look forward to returning in years to come for more relaxing in the sun.

Thanks Eileen and hopefully we will come back one day!

The house is a very nice house to accommodate 6 people. The swimming pool is especially nice.

  • 5 of 5

One of thebattractions was that the property is not located in the congested high tourist areas. Yet you could go to the beach or other tourist areas rather quickly.

Great house with swimming pool

  • 5 of 5

We 4 adults and 1 baby came in June to this beautiful house and had a wonderful stay.

What we liked most was:

- Beautiful house which fit us comfortably. One bedroom stayed even empty.

- The house is fully equipped, furniture is nice

- Great beds

- Amazing large terrace with views

- Privacy of the house

- Swimming pool, pool deck, and grill are fantastic

- Beautiful quite residential neighborhood with single family homes

- Great beaches in 15 minutes drive reach

- 10 min drive to supermarkets wholefoods, trader joe's

The house is in a quite residential neighborhood so that a car is definitely recommended.

The owner was very response and helped with great advice and improvised a crib and high chair for us.

Overall we would rate this without a doubt a 5 star house and would recommend to anybody.
