About Julie and Dave Gesner
We live outside of Boston with our two children. We love to travel, ski, surf and hang at the beach and pool. While incredibly busy as two full-time working parents, we try to enjoy our life to the fullest with as much vacation time as we can take!
Julie and Dave Gesner purchased this House in 2012
Why Julie and Dave Gesner chose Osterville
We chose Osterville because it is a short 1.5 hour drive from our primary home and Boston. We chose the Wianno area of Osterville because it is a short walk to either the beautiful village of Osterville or the warm waters of Dowses Beach. We love the expanded living space of our home so the entire extended family can relax together and not feel crowded. We chose this house specifically for the kid-friendly location on a quiet residential street and it's amazing back-yard. We wanted to be able to ride bikes around the circle and relax by the the heated pool after a day at the beach and also have room to BBQ, play yard games and throw a baseball. We love to entertain and this is the perfect home to do so.

. Great family weekend
Beautiful house, great location and owners were very easy to work with. We didn't have the weather to enjoy the back yard and the pool but it was heated and plenty of comfortable lounge options !
Great place, very attentive and responsive host.
The home is great for large, informal family gatherings. We have family nearby, and we're preparing Thanksgiving dinner for 27 people. We were only 16 for dinner Wednesday, so we all ate at this lovely home. Everyone was comfortable and relaxed. Julie checked in with us to make sure all was well, and a minor issue was taken care of immediately. We will definitely stay in one of Julie's properties whenever the need arises. Many thanks for an enjoyable holiday!!!
Great wedding weekend at the Cape
We had a very comfortable and nice stay at Wianno for a family wedding in osterville. Our group of siblings included 6 adults 40+ and 3 children ages 7-10, we found there to be plenty of room. The home was great and we appreciated the number of living spaces to hang out together or get a little space. The pool was a huge bonus and owner was kind enough to keep it open and heated past the normal closure date. The pool was so warm and the kids loved it and it provided a great break during cool fall days. You have 4 bedrooms and 2 baths with 3 large living areas, 2 downstairs. The kitchen is nice and well stocked. Communication during the whole booking and stay process was excellent. Thank you Julie for being responsive to my inquires and your suggestions about local area. And a big thank you for keeping the pool open and heated. I would recommend the home for its layout, cleanliness, and location. I imagine it’s awesome in the summer. Working and communicating with such a responsive owner was very much appreciated and makes a long trip from Seattle much easier. We really enjoyed the weekend and this home was perfect space, centrally located, clean, and took that worry off the table and allowed us to really enjoy the time with family.
Such a great review - thanks for taking the time to let people know your experience with our home:-) We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you do come back during the summer when you can enjoy the beautiful beaches on Cape Cod!
Great layout, warm home with abundant natural light, beautiful private back yard and heated pool
Spent three nights at this comfortable home-- more than enough space for our crew of 7 adults and 1 child. The heated pool is like a giant bath tub! Hope to be back soon
Thanks for the great review!! We keep the pool warmer in the off season so people are inclined to use it! I know I wouldn’t go swimming in October without it on:-)
Fantastic house in Osterville
We enjoyed another vacation at this charming house. The house is well equipped with everything you need. The heated pool and spacious yard are wonderful. The owners are very responsive and quick to address any issue or answer any question that may arise. We highly recommend this house and these owners for a very pleasant and carefree vacation.
Wonderful family weekend
We had such a fabulous stay here, and Julie the owner was fantastic and extremely responsive! House had everything we could need, and our kids really enjoyed the use of all the toys and swimming pool! Great location too. Will definitely be back!
Thanks for the review:-)
