Comfortable and classic Cape Cod vacation

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It was a great combination of convenience, comfort and charm. The location in Cataumet is ideal, close enough to main roads to get anywhere but far enough away to feel like you are away from the hustle and bustle. We loved that the house has super-fast wifi and all the major kitchen appliances. The house and yard were charming and, despite its rustic appearance, we were very comfortable. The outdoor shower and the comfortable mattresses were great, as was the classic screened porch. Finally, the owners were helpful, gracious and accessible. I hope to return some day and I highly recommend this rental

Relaxed in Cataumet

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was the perfect location on the Cape and was reminiscent of a classic vintage beach house. It was steps from a spot for shellfishing, as well as a small, beautiful hike to a very private sandy area (beach) accessible during low tide. My dog and I enjoyed the back patio, as well as the screened front porch. If you enjoy kayaking, there are so many easy access points within walking distance of this cottage. The house is very private and has a charming back yard perfect for families and friends to gather. There was no need at all for air conditioning, as the ocean breeze blows freely in through the screened windows on the second floor. It was also close to great restaurants, and only a 15 minute drive to downtown Falmouth. I hope to return again!

This home is quintessential Cape Cod. My family had a wonderful week here. Highly recommend.

We loved this house and the location. A very large family reunion called for more space and this house was perfect. A large yard is perfect for children and lawn games. The house is well equipped.

Secluded, yet close to everything

  • 5 of 5

The pictures that we saw were exactly what we found when we arrived at this beautiful, clean, and well-maintained property. We've stayed at other properties listed on and found that "linens provided" sometimes means two towels despite the fact that our reservation was for more people. Not the case here. We had all the linens we needed for bedding, bathing, beach visits, dish washing, and then more. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed, except food. One of the members of the owner's family stopped by to check in on us the morning after we arrived to be sure that everything was OK. The location is conveniently located between Hyannis (site of Kennedy history), Falmouth (fairy to Martha's Vineyard), and Plymouth (where the Mayflower docked). Nearby ice cream stands, a short walk to a private beach, and short drives to by groceries made this a perfect stay. Despite the fact that the weather was warmer than much of the year and that there is no AC, the fans cooled things off in the house really well and we were comfortable. We don't choose to have cable or satellite TV at home, so having access to watching TV during the Olympics was a huge bonus for our kids, and since there was WiFi available, we could connect when we needed to without using our data plan. In summary: highly recommended property - owners are fabulous and quick to respond - if we vacation in Cape Cod again, we'd look to see if this house were available before checking out others. Unless AC is a must have for you or the size (sleeps 9 in 3 bedrooms + living room pull-out), you can't go wrong with this rental.

Quintessential Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

Built in 1890, this rental has genuine Cape Cod charm. The bedrooms are a comfortable size and easily sleep 7. It has a working kitchen that is well stocked... we made large meals there every evening. Great deck on one side of the house, screened in porch on the other. The location is great, with easy access to two different harbors that are perfect for kayaking and canoeing. The house sits on one of the larger lots in the neighborhood... very private. Chris the owner was great - promptly answered all of my questions and was very accommodating. He allowed us to add an additional night on the front end and on very short notice, which helped a lot. Hope to be back next summer!
