About Gary and Joanne Cross

We rent our year round home each summer while we camp, travel and visit with our five children and six grandchildren. We haved enjoyed living on Cape Cod for 40 years.

Gary and Joanne Cross purchased this house in 2005

Why Gary and Joanne Cross chose Osterville

We love Osterville. It is convenient to Hyannis where there is lots of shopping and restaurants, yet Osterville is a quieter area tucked in off the main road with it's own great shops,beaches and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

This home is welcoming,the large eat in dining area attached to the kitchen makes for cozy gatherings, that can flow out to the picnic table area for a backyard cookout.

Beautiful home, very roomy and comfortable. Gorgeous back garden private. Just lovely. Great area

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week. It is in a convenient location to access the whole cape and ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. We even went to Newport for the day, an easy day trip. Very comfortable family home. We were four of us and it was very comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed, has everything you need. It even was stocked with coffee and condiments which is so convenient. Beautiful back garden where we enjoyed happy hour and early mornings. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. We really enjoyed our stay. The cape has so much to do and see and this was a perfect base.

Perfect cape getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The home was as described and then some. It was very clean and spacious. The outdoor areas and backyard were to die for. Plenty of space for the kids to run around and lots of seating for the adults. The location of the house was great as well. There was easy access to anywhere you wanted to go in the cape. Would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking!

Very nice spacious home

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this house a week and it was great. The house is surprisingly spacious, with a large eat in kitchen, den, living room on the first floor and a large finished basement (which we never used) as well. We spent a lot of time on the back patio. This house is situated on a very nice lot and it's very private. The home is equipped with everything, and the owners are responsive and delightful to deal with. I know Osterville, and this is a great location. We would definitely rent again.

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this Osterville home for 2 weeks in July. It is located in a quiet residential area about 2 miles from Dowses beach. There were 5 of us, 3 adults and 2 kids, and there was more than enough room for everyone. The house was welcoming and very comfortable, which was a good thing as the weather was not entirely cooperative. The kitchen is huge, and the entire house was very clean. The finished basement was great, the kids could play on the Nintendo Wii after a long beach day. There was also a pullout couch down there which came in handy when another relative visited for a couple of days.

There is a lovely deck on the back of the house and we very much enjoyed watching the birds and especially the hummingbirds that came to drink from the water feeder.

The owners were a pleasure to deal with, and we did have one small problem involving the hot water heater. The water would only be hot enough for one shower before running out. I called Joanne and she sent her husband Gary over right away. The problem was solved within the hour. We had no other issues and had a wonderful time staying there. In fact, we will be returning for another 2 weeks next summer. We recommend this rental!
