What an amazing house, hands down one of the best houses our family has rented. The location was in a lovely neighborhood easily accessible to everything the cape has to offer. A day trip to Martha's Vineyard, a short drive to Provincetown, the beach, Arnolds for the best lobster rolls, and let's not forget all of the ice cream shops! The backyard was like heaven, reading a book in the morning with a cup of coffee, the kids enjoying making s'mores in the fire pit and the adults relaxing in the hot tub after a long day of exploring the various Cape towns. The movie theater was perfect for the family to gather and enjoy a movie in the evening after dinner. The layout of the house provided plenty of space for everyone to spread out and the kitchen was perfect for preparing meals and just hanging out together.
Working with the owner was fantastic, she responded promptly to any questions and proactively sent helpful information to us prior to our arrival. You can not go wrong with renting this house!!!!
Thank you Susan for the opportunity to rent your home our family made wonderful memories that will last a life time!
This is the second year we've rented a place on Cape Cod for a family get-away. The last place was nice, but not set up exactly how we wanted it to be - our group is three couples and one child so we really need three rooms with double beds or larger, and one room for a child. This house really met our requirements. The bedroom configuration is great - each Master has it's own separate area and the two other rooms are also down a small corridor (though the corridor will get used by people going down into the basement). So lots of privacy. Our other requirements were: central A/C (which this house has, apart from one master bedroom which has a window unit), no pets, quiet street. This house hit all our requirements and then some. The kitchen is great, and so are the rest of the common areas, very clean and fresh. The outdoor spaces are large and well maintained. We didn't use the hot tub, but someone came to clean it while we were there so we're sure it works just fine. We used the fire pit almost every night. Next year, we plan to try to get someone to deliver some firewood so we don't have to keep running to the Stop and Shop. The gas grill worked nicely.
If I was asked if anything could be done to improve the experience, I would offer two things: First, a couple of cotton blankets in the bedrooms would have been nice because comforters are kind of heavy for the summer. Second, a few comfy chairs would really help livability in the second master ( the one with three beds) and the room between the dining and living rooms. But this would just be icing on the cake for us - we loved this gorgeous house so much we're already looking forward to going back next year.
I also wanted to mention that the owners are very responsive and helpful. We already received our security deposit back and we just left the place 5 days ago. The week was a great experience for all of us. Thank you!
I literally gasped when I walked into the house; it was far beyond any vacation home that I expected! The house was so large, and had something adorable about each room.
That kitchen was fantastic, and so much fun for cooking. The showers were amazing and so was the outdoor lounge area. There was plenty of space for everyone to relax comfortably without feeling like we were on top of one another.
Whenever we finished exploring the different towns, I was so excited to come home, knowing that it would be ultimate relaxation. There was nothing missing, whatsoever. I loved this house so much, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great getaway!
There are no words to describe my family vacation at this house other than we can't wait to go back next year. Everything about the house exceeded all of our expectations. The inside and the outside of the house were extremely meticulous. House was a close driving distance to Skaket and Nauset beaches. The Media room in the basement was a true gem and we enjoyed watching movies every night after a day at the beach. The kitchen was amazing and we used it several nights for family dinners. House had plenty bedrooms, bathrooms, and general space for 12 people. I can't think of one negative thing about this house. Highly recommend this property to anyone.
Our 3 families have stayed at this house the past two years in July and really enjoyed ourselves. The layout is great for adults and children with plenty of space for kids to play during poor weather or down days. The kitchen has everything you need. The house is separated nicely so that each family has an area of their own which is convenient/necessary with smaller children. The downstairs movie room is great for everyone, especially on poor weather days. Adults and children alike enjoy the outside patio and nice back yard. Ice machine in the freezer has trouble keeping up with daily demand so additional bags of ice are necessary. Convenient to everything including beaches, shops, and restaurants but in a nice neighborhood so you're have plenty of peace and quiet.
House is very nice and in a good location. I echo many of the sentiments from other reviewers. The theater was a very cool touch and Susan clearly put a lot of effort into the set up and hosting.
What made this 4 star (possibly 3 star) accommodations was that in 3 of the 4 bedrooms the AC was preset to a lowest temperature allowed of 74 degrees. When I contacted Susan to let her know that my wife is 8 months pregnant and we are all sweating as a result of humid August nights- her response was to open the windows. There were additional elements of cost watching not typically associated with a $5k/wk rental like a $50 dollar towel fee if not washed which seemed odd and consistent with the AC. (full disclosure-our full security deposit was promptly returned as we kept the house in immaculate condition)
The town of Orleans offers a wide arrange of activities sure to please all vacationers. During the summer enjoy the Cape Cod Baseball League by supporting the Orleans Firebirds. Outdoor arts and crafts fairs are abundant. Rainy day activities may include trips to the Brewster Museum of Natural History, ice skating, bowling, or the movies. Wellfleet still has its own Drive In movie theatre for a unique family experience.There are several fresh water lakes and ponds for trout or bass fishing. If you prefer, charter a deep sea fishing boat or fish from the piers in Wellfleet, Chatham or Provincetown. Rent kayaks locally and consider hiring a local guide to show you around. The Cape Cod Rail Trail allows bikers to follow a former rail for 22 miles. Bike rental agencies are plentiful along the way. Hike along the beach trails in the National Seashore Center located in Eastham or visit the Audubon Society in Wellfleet. Whale watches are always a lot of fun leaving out of Provincetown or you can take a cruise to see the seals off the coast of Chatham. The world is your oyster while visiting Cape Cod. Enjoy!
