Great property - lots of space / perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The house is very spacious (the pictures don't do it justice!). We didn't even set foot in the basement, but really enjoyed the back porch and open kitchen / dining area. They also have a great VHS collection! Very close to the beach, although due to weather we didn't spend much time there. Close to lots of fun things to do - we went to mini golf and also the main drag in Hyannis. Overall, a really nice place to stay that met our needs for a great price!

Well equipped and roomy house near beach

  • 5 of 5

Great for 2 families sharing, lots of spaces for small groups to gather. Basketball hoop on quiet road outside was a big hit for our kids. Grown ups enjoyed the sunny patio and large kitchen. House was very clean and well equipped with beach gear, kitchen utensils, games and videos. We went to the beach most days and it was an 8 min walk. There is a restaurant at the top of the road and Stop and Shop is a 5 min drive. We had some questions about the a/c and oven and owner was very responsive. You can get a ferry to Martha's Vineyard form Hyannis which we loved and whale watching from Barnstaple (both 10 mins drive). Surprisingly good mountain bike trails nearby (Willow St and the Badlands) and excellent CD collection in games room. Would recommend.

Great stay in a perfect house

  • 5 of 5

I cant say enough good things about this house. It was perfect in every way!

The owners had thought about everything when they organized this house. The rooms were large with very comfortable beds and pillows. The general living space was perfect for our family. The furniture in the living room was so inviting! Perfect to cuddle with a good book (also provided by the hosts) on a rainy cape cod day. The kitchen was better stocked than my own.

All the other amenities were so appreciated, from the washer/dryer on the main level, to the central AC to a great dishwasher.

The house was also a short walk to a great free beach (small parking lot which filled quickly).

It was hard to leave this place!

Perfect summer vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 5 from New York and the house was spacious and extremely clean for all of us. We did not spend much time at the house, but appreciated the big kitchen with all its equipments for the day's catch and they even had a lobster pot, which we definitely took advantage of. The beds were very comfortable and we really appreciated the central AC when it was really hot and muggy out. The house had all the necessary amenities of a real home, which made our stay very comfortable and it's centrally located --main street Hyannis, ferry to Nantucket, mini golf, restaurants, were all about 10 mins drive from the house. Not to mention the beautiful Colonial acres beach was within walking distance from the house. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and wish we had more days to enjoy the house. Arthur was a responsive and accomodating host. He was quick to answer questions via texts. We hope to come back again soon :)

Well stocked and great for a large family!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last week and really enjoyed it. The house is in a great location and very well stocked. I love to cook and found everything I needed in the kitchen. 6 of us came from out of town and had a few in towners stay also. It worked out really well for us. I do need to note tho that the mini pool table is truly very small. And if you are bringing darts you need to bring the steel tipped ones. And you need to bring linens.The owners were wonderful to deal with and I definitely would stay there again!

Either the owner or the cleaner was a big liar!

  • 1 of 5

Please take detailed pictures on the days you arrive and depart! Some examples that we were accused for: 1. the dirty grill that we DID NOT even open the cover. 2. A broken Ping-Pong ball (if it was valuable enough to be considered as a damage) in the basement that we DID NOT use at all. 3. A broken piece from the out-door shower that had nothing to do with us. 4. An empty page torn from the guest book because one kid wrote a message and then decided his hand-writing was not good enough. Not to mention the previously existing stains on the rug, a piece of old plastic in the yard...

The owner DID NOT inform us all those false accusations until we sent him email asking about the deposit 2 weeks after our stay. I am not sure if he was handling that in the professional way. Just to remind the future customers to check promptly.

Owner's Response: “Some people create their own storms then get upset when it rains.” Xiaotao, we take issue with your headline & rating which creates a false & misleading impression. All guests have Property Damage Protection which means they don’t pay if an item breaks accidentally. The only deposit we collect is a $130 refundable cleaning deposit which is to protect us if the house requires additional cleaning beyond what would be considered normal. This was unfortunately the case in your situation. Prior to their arrival, all guests receive a welcome letter which contains the code to enter the house & a detailed explanation of what is expected in order to be refunded the deposit. Of the few small things we ask, none were honored. This was a party of 9 people, 5 of which were kids ranging from 4 to 12 yrs. We inspected the home before & after their stay. 3 of the blankets were so badly stained, 2 of them ended up being thrown out. There were stains on almost every chair & on the living room & kitchen rugs (yes there were a few pre-existing stains, these were new stains.) It was obvious the patio & grill had been used. A large area of the new patio, along with the table, were stained with a white paint like substance & dark grease stains. The patio & lawn were covered in litter, bags, food/juice box wrappers (not one piece of plastic). Chairs from other areas of the house had been moved to the patio for additional seating & had not been put back. Pictures had been knocked down & not rehung. Toys, VHS tapes, ping pong balls were crushed as if they had been stomped on or pulled apart & were in pieces scattered across the floor. After explaining why amounts were being withheld for the extra time spent trying to remove stains from furniture/bedding/rugs/pavers, picking up litter, etc, the response we received was: “We never received the welcome letter! We didn’t use any of the blankets, the patio, the grill, the game room…YOU’RE A F-ING-A-HOLE!!!” The policies we have in place are to serve the many repeat guests who enjoy coming to our clean & well maintained home. You can see by the other reviews (all 5 star) that no one else has had any complaints regarding our policies or our integrity. We hope this review will be seen for what is – one spiteful guest’s attempt to hurt our business & bully us into issuing them a refund. If would-be future guests want additional reassurance, please see the reviews for our other property–go to & enter 963860 in the search field.
