Why Andy Gillis chose West Hyannisport

Once you get here you will know why. It is a very special place.

What makes this house unique

It's a Windmill! On the water, incredibly peaceful and friendly but close to all the Cape has to offer. Plenty of upgrades.

Terrific home in an ideal location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent an amazing week in The Windmill and highly recommend it for families who want great space in which to spend time together, as well as close proximity to a private and beautiful beach. Pictures don't do it justice. The home was comfortable and had everything we needed or could possibly want. We would love to return one day!!

Lucky great off season weather

  • 5 of 5

We jogged around the neighborhood and took out the bikes one day. Good base location once you figure out all the side streets. Part of the group decided it was more fun to stay at the house one day than to go to Provincetown or the National Seashore. We had some rain one evening, but the rest of our stay was perfect weather. The house is great to find a spot and have a room to yourself. Great kitchen with everything you need. Lots of spices and tea we assume were left by previous guests. The washing machine worked great for us. Finally, outstanding views.

Wonderful house, great location, amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Windmill house. The views are spectacular and every morning waking up to that amazing view really starts off the day in the right direction. Views from every room! House was very comfortable and we appreciated the amenities the owner provides (paper towels, TP, soap, etc.). We had one small issue on the first night and the owners were very responsive. The owner's sister has a local juice company in town (Local Juice) and gave us some flavors to try, which was kind of her and delicious. Great location for beach, Main St shopping and dining, or exploring the Cape. We would absolutely recommend this house to others and plan to return!

Beautiful views from a gracious home

  • 5 of 5

This gracious home provided us with a wonderful space for our family to spend quality time together in New England! The views from every part of the house, even during some pretty torrential rain, were beautifully impressive and deeply relaxing. The kitchen is very well equipped and the rooms are all wonderful. A couple of things to attend to: (1) The access code to the lock box is incorrectly listed in the electronic check in material though it is correct in the welcome book. (2) The window next to the sliding glass doors in the dining room and sitting area leaks from the top during heavy rain so it should be checked out to avoid water damage. Thanks for a wonderful stay!!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you had a nice time. The lock box code has been updated, (it was recently changed for security purposes). The window has been sealed and fixed, thanks so much for the feedback.
