Fantastic, well-located house

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at The Windmill. We loved the central location that let us visit many places on the Cape. The house is very comfortable and the owners make it very easy for renters - towels, soap, staples in the kitchen, etc. We were constantly commenting on how thoughtfully laid out everything was. Beautiful views in every direction. Owners are friendly and helpful. We'd stay in this house again in a heartbeat.

Fantastic experience from start to finish! Chose Cape Cod for our annual girls weekend and the Windmill was a great base camp for exploring the area. Clean, well-stocked, spacious, quiet. Regularly rent VRBO properties over hotels while traveling and this was one of the best properties. It won't disappoint.

Beautiful views! Very comfortable!

Our stay at the Windmill was also our first trip to Cape Cod. We had a great time! The house had plenty of room and offered everything we needed for an enjoyable vacation. The views were beautiful and the house is close to everything. We will definitely return!

Lovely location and beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

The windmill was a wonderful retreat for my husband and I and 2 other couples. The home was well laid out with fine amenities and the location was central for our Cape Cod vacation. I wish we had the time to take advantage of the kayaks, row boat and other outdoor amenities...perhaps on our next trip!

Breathtaking Views

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I loved this house!!! This place was so beautiful..... even beyond our expectations. It was so relaxing looking out at the ocean. The views are breathtaking!!! I felt very comfortable during my stay. My sister April loved cooking for us everyday in that awesome kitchen. It was nice to sit in this home and eat a prepared meal. It is in a great location as well. There is so much to do. It was an extra bonus to have a private beach. It was fun to watch the crabs, pick up seashells, and walk in the ocean. We were able to see a lot of Cape Cod during our stay. I shared some pictures and let family and friends know that I was happy with my vacation. They are hoping to schedule a visit as well. Thank you!!!

Ideal Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Windmill House for 3 nights and our group absolutely enjoyed it. The views are breathtaking! The house is clean, comfortable, recently renovated and very well equipped. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but is also close to town, beaches and ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. The owners are very responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend the Windmill House for your Cape Cod getaway!
