Blue door cottage
We loved our stay! The cottage is comfortable, clean and well stocked with everything you could need! Although close to the beach and restaurants, it's set in a quiet neighborhood. A beautiful yard and screened room complete the beauty of this cottage. Paul was easily reached for questions and was a wonderful host! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back!! We highly recommend the Blue Door Cottage!!
Thank you for the generous review, and the respect you showed our home. If we are fortunate to host you again, we promise the sun will be out for more than the ride home. Be well.
Perfect cape cottage
We had a wonderful week at the blue door cottage. Cozy and cute and has everything you could possibly need.
Great location and beach within a mile.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay!
We appreciate the kind comments, and your respectful care for our home. And, thank you for successfully steering Dorian out to sea. We hope to host you again on your return.
Perfect vacation spot
We had a wonderful week in Yarmouth. Paul’s property is everything he claims it to be - and more. It is charming and cozy, very clean, and has everything you could need or want in a vacation rental. The house was a perfect fit for our family of four. We spent our evenings in the screened in porch after putting the kids to bed; and the living room was perfect for a rainy afternoon spent watching tv and playing games. The kids loved using the bikes in the garage for some rides around the neighborhood.
Paul was easy to communicate with and offered great suggestions for things to do and places to eat in the area. Thanks for a great week. We will be back!
We thank you for 3 things:
1. The kind review
2. The respectful care of our home
3. The only entry in our guest book in orange crayon.
We would love to host you all again.
Have a wonderfully goal reaching school year!
A Wonderful Home, Close to the Beach with a Fantastic Yard
My husband, my 23 month old twins and I just got home from our week stay at Paul's Blue Door Cottage. We had a fantastic time!
The house was so comfortable, with a beautiful kitchen and relaxing living area. The yard was amazing - so spacious and beautifully landscaped. Lots of room for our kids to run and play. We set up a small kiddie pool in the back and spent a lot of time chasing them around as they screamed in delight. The outdoor shower was a hit for everyone!
Every bit of attention to detail was paid - the home had all the essentials (cleaning supplies, washer/dryer, detergent, olive oil, coffee maker) PLUS tons of awesome extras (sand toys, bikes, a wagon, balls). Paul was also so gracious to coordinate with the woman from which we rented our cribs for delivery and set up. It was so great, because it was one less thing for us to worry about.
The beach is about a quarter mile away, and it's a nice walk. Each evening. we would walk the kids around the neighborhood, saying hi to all the dogs and even the resident pack of wild turkeys.
All in all, a great time. We highly recommend this lovely home and hope to be back next year. Thanks for everything, Paul!
We are almost as pleased by your glowing review as we are for both the gentle treatment of our home, and the news that your family created some wonderful memories. We are glad you took advantage of the “extras” and the neighborhood.
We would love to host you all again.
Thanks, and be well.
We can't wait to come back next year
It's a lovely well-kept cottage in a quiet woodsy neighborhood. My daughter and I spend hours in the screened room in the back yard. We both read and watch for animals and birds. In the several years we've been coming we see fewer animals and birds, which I blame on climate change, which, of course, isn't Paul's fault. My husband, Walter spends most of his time writing in the comfortable living room, and we all enjoy the convenient nearness of Cape Cod Creamery for dessert!
Sweet Blue Door Cottage
This was our first visit to the blue door cottage, and we couldn't have been happier. On a muggy day, the cottage was beautifully cool when we arrived and 'clean as a whistle'. Everything throughout the cottage is first-rate (furnishings, appliances, amenities (including a large outdoor shower), and decor. The beds are very comfortable and the bathroom is unusually large for a cottage/smaller home. We enjoyed the 'open concept' and the awesome Cape breezes from the many windows. Although situated near Route 28, somehow this neighborhood was extremely quiet, while allowing us easy access to favorite restaurants and beaches. And the owner is a joy to communicate with; all questions were responded to very quickly. In all, a truly wonderful vacation spot! Thank you, Paul!
Thank you for such a wonderful description! We appreciate it nearly as much as the tenderness and respect you showed our home. We hope you allow us the opportunity to host you again soon.
Enjoy the balance of your summer, and thanks again.
