Just an absolutely lovely, adorable and perfectly appointed cape cottage!
This was the perfect home for our family of 3. Centrally located on the Cape and just a short drive to ferries (Nantucket and MV) and whale watching (Barnstable) - all a wonderful experience for us! Parker’s Beach (less than 1 mile away) is great for little ones and morning sunrise walks. The neighborhood was safe and quiet, and the house has everything you need inside and out. We spent several days at the beach and all of the gear for our trip was ready and waiting - chairs, coolers, umbrella, toys, cart! Such thoughtful convenience when traveling from out of town. The house also has an amazing lawn that our 17 month old enjoyed - very soft grass with bunnies, squirrels and even turkeys to see. The screened in porch was so nice for an evening in the crisp air. Our family loved this home and would absolutely return.
Returning guest...loved it just as much as last time
This is the second September in a row that we rented the Blue Door Cottage, and we loved it just as much as last year. This house is spotless, well stocked and well maintained. The owner, Paul, was just as responsive and organized as last year, sending us out an email ahead of our stay with all the instructions and information we needed about the house. The cottage is just the right size for our family (my husband, me and our 4 year old) and in a perfect location to access multiple beaches, restaurants and other attractions. The screened in area is perfect for lounging outside at night and playing cards. The lawn is very nicely maintained and our daughter loved running around trying to spot the bunnies. We absolutely would recommend this property!
Your words are as kind and thoughtful as the treatment of our home. While the bunnies, Nan and Martha, may not care for your family enjoying the yard, we love it. Hopefully, we will be able to accommodate your change in schedule next year. Thanks again.
Cutest House on the Block
This comfy cottage in a quaint, quiet neighborhood, exceeded our expectations in every way. As a renter you always hope a home will...well, feel like a home away from home. This home said welcome from the get go. The place was clean, comfortable, uncluttered, and had absolutely everything we needed. We loved the open layout and the updates. Pride of ownership is clearly the hallmark of this lovely cottage. The screened-in patio was a favorite place to spend quiet mornings or to chat with family at night. The location was perfect, centrally located and easy to get to other destinations on the Cape. The physical setting was perfect, but what brought the experience to a whole new level was doing business with the owner, Paul. He was responsive to every question we had and gave us great insider tips on the area. Instructions/particulars found on the site and in the home were clearly stated, taking the guesswork out of things and making our arrival and departure uncomplicated. Above all, Paul did an outstanding job making us feel welcome in his home and we are confident your experience would be just the same. Would rent here again in a New York minute.

Wow. Your kind words and thoughts were as generous as the respect you showed our home. Holding high standards is easy when guests such as yourselves appreciate and help maintain them. Hopefully, we will be able to host you in the future.
Again, thank you.
Amazing house, great location
House is spotless, beautifully updated and decorated. Great location... perfect for our family of 4 with two small children. It was hot and the a/c worked great!
Thanks for the kind words, and we hope you created many happy family memories. We hope to host you all again.
This is our third year renting the house and we love it. Quiet neighborhood and close to the beach. We can’t wait to go back next year. Paul is amazing and so easy to deal with. Great place to rent.
We thank you, again, for your unparalleled courteous treatment of our home, patience, and communication. We look forward to hosting you both again, and appreciate your trust.
Great location, perfect for a couple or family of 4
The property is very well kept, clean, and has all modern appliances. Everything, even paper products and hand soaps were there. The bikes, beach chairs, coolers, were all in great shape and used often on our trip. The screened in porch behind the garage was very relaxing. Close to great restaurants, Skipper, Captain Parker, and Cape Cod Creamery for awesome ice cream. 20 minutes across and Sunset beaches in Dennis, Corporation and Greys we thought we’re cool. The water is cold so be ready for it! 7/28-8/4. Property is also very quiet at night, the central air was a god sent for the heat. Enjoy!!!
We are grateful for your gentle treatment of our home, as well as the detailed review. We do take pride in providing extras like the paper products, soaps, coolers, bikes, etc.
We are also glad you were able to experience so many wonderful(and delicious!) aspects of Cape Cod.
Thank you, and hopefully, we will be able to host you again soon.
