Tucked away in a family friendly neighborhood with low and slow traffic…network with the locals or meet some fellow vacationers on a neighborhood stroll or bike ride with the kiddies before enjoying breakfast outside on the patio. 5 houses down and BANG... Bay Rd takes you 1-mile straight to the BEACH...a local favorite, Pleasant Bay Beach…with FREE street side parking. Beach is great for sandcastles, people watching, windsurfing, sailing, swimming, wading, low tide shell collecting, sun bathing…etc…Upon returning to the property Re-freshing for dinner-time will be a cinch with 2 full baths and an outside shower.

Amazing home and great attentive owner

  • 5 of 5

We've rented down the cape for July 4th week for 15 years, this has been the best thus far!

So many toys for the kids, even 2 wiis.

So much room, great yard, everything you may Need for great day at the beach was available for us to borrow.

Super quiet dead end St, which provided for very relaxful afternoon after big day at river beach.

There's nothing for me to complain. If, one wish would be couple of tv channels for kids, but we were so busy there was barely any time to be spent watching any tv!

Very happy and looking forward to rent again next year!

A great vacation home

  • 4 of 5

The property is located at the end of street, so traffic was not an issue. The home is located very conveniently to grocery, shopping and beaches. It is very clean and spacious with good size bedrooms and two very nice bathrooms. The kitchen is fully stocked with adequate utensils and dishes, pots pans and glassware. Bring your own spices. The deck has a large table and umbrella, and the outdoor shower is great. The only drawback was the fact that only basic cable is hooked up, although they do have netflex The tv remotes do require getting used to, but the owner was very helpful in explaining each ones functionality. We all agreed that we would definitely rent this property again.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your taking the time to write a review! We take pride in keeping the property clean and comfortable. The property is equipped with cable -though its the basic subscription. However, 3 of the HDTV flatscreen tv's in the house are equipped with HDMI chords. Attach the HDMI to your laptop computer and stream most of anything you would normally watch at home. You will be prompted by the website (I.E. ESPN to sign in with your sign in credentials from your at home cable company and then viola ...you are are watching the live baseball game ...etc.. And all 3 tv's are hooked up to netflix If you get locked out just text the owner for the sign in credentials. Thanks again for booking with us and happy travels in 2017!!

Great week in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a week's vacation with another family. In total there were 8 of us and we found the home to have lots of space for everyone to be more than comfortable. The home was very clean and well equipped, and very well located for our needs. We would definitely rent this home again on our next trip to Cape Cod!

Fabulour location and beautiful spacious house!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for two weeks with another family. The location was fabulous. There was plenty of room for the adults and children. We loved our stay! There was plenty of room to spread out. The kitchen is beautiful and has everything you need. We just couldn’t have been happier with the property and the owner. The homeowner was easy to work with and very responsive to all of our inquiries and questions leading up to and during our stay. We highly recommend this house and hope to be back soon. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

relaxing get away

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for a week in July, there were 8 of us in total, 4 adults and 4 children and we found there to be plenty of room for us to all spread out. We found the listing to be accurate as to what was provided with even some extras that we weren't expecting! As the above reviewer mentioned, we did not find it to be walking distance to the beach though, it would be a long walk on a windy road that I wouldn't recommend with kids and beach accessories. The property was immaculately cleaned and maintained. We enjoyed the different choices of beaches in Chatham and Orleans. The only suggestion that I would have is a maybe a manual to the house and how it works. The living room had 4 remotes and it was very confusing as to how to get everything to work (and I am usually very good with those type of things). It appeared as if there were only about 10 channels to chose from but it could be that I didn't know how to work the cable. A quick guide as to how to how the system works in each room, as well as where to find things like extra sheets and blankets, cleaning supplies, etc would make this home a 5 star rental!

Great House - Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting on the Cape every summer for last 15 years. This is definitely one of the best houses we ever stayed at. The house is clean, very well maintained and it has everything you need for a great vacation. There is plenty of room for few families. The house is located on the very quiet street which is great for families with kids. It’s a little far from the ocean, but it was not an issue for us. We will definitely rent again.

Thank you Joe.
