Wonderful Osterville location with a private heated pool. This 4 bedroom, 2 full bath home is in pristine condition and has a wonderful open floor plan. It has central a/c, a new, stylishly appointed kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, gleaming new hardwood floors, skylights, a fireplace and multiple, separate living spaces perfect for families with children. The large, private backyard has a heated, in-ground, fenced-in swimming pool, brick patio with gas grill, and outdoor shower. It is about a half mile to beautiful Dowses Beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Osterville.

The first floor has two separate living spaces, including a large combination family room/dining room with new upholstered furniture, a large flat-screen HDTV, and large dining table that comfortably seats 6-8. The second living space is open to the new kitchen, and includes a fireplace, new upholstered furniture and seating for 10 at an over-sized breakfast bar and a custom built banquet. Also on the first floor are 2 bedrooms and a newly renovated full bath, including one with a king bed and another with a queen bed.

On the second floor are 2 additional bedrooms, a newly renovated full bath and another large family room, which includes a new sectional with a queen size pull-out sleeper. The bedrooms include one with three twin size beds (two twins and a roll away trundle) and another with a queen size bed.

The home offers 2 large TVs, a Bose Sound Dock, WiFi, Cable with DVR service, 2 DVD players, and local phone service.

The house is very toddler-friendly, offering one full-size crib with crib sheets, one pack-n-play, one tension operated baby gate, one hand-held video monitor, various children's books and movies, and a booster seat.

Fresh linens are provided.

The large private yard has a heated, fenced-in, in-ground pool. The spacious brick patio has a gas grill, a picnic table, and table and chairs for outdoor dining.

The 2-car attached garage has been converted into a well-equipped game room with an 8 foot pool table and an air hockey table for rainy day entertainment.

Perfect for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week in July for a long overdue family vacation (6 adults and 2 children under 4 years old). None of us had ever been to Cape Cod before and we weren't sure what to expect. The house was beautiful and clean and we had everything we needed. We were also able to walk to the cute town to go shopping or go out to eat (and, of course, get ice cream!). We went to nearby Dowses Beach and Craigville Beach and took the ferry over to Martha's Vineyard one day. The backyard is very large and we most of our time swimming in the pool, grilling out and just relaxing. Julie made the rental process super easy and she provided lots of information about the town and Cape Cod (restaurants, beaches, parks, shopping, etc.). We hope to come back soon!!

Beautiful, comfortable and well-maintained home with gorgeous yard and great swimming pool!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the house for a week in June for our son's wedding. What a great choice we made! We could not have been happier with the house and beautiful yard. The house comfortably slept the six of us, plus my in-laws, and my son's three groomsmen who joined us at the end of the week. They slept in a large upstairs family room. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and have very comfortable beds. The bright, airy kitchen has a great kitchen island and breakfast table to eat at, and the adjoining living room is so comfortable. There is a neat family room too, with a big couch and armchair and a table that seats six or eight (can't remember!). We spent most of our time in the kitchen, living room, or outside. Our two sons and groomsmen shot many a game of pool in the garage when they weren't playing Can-Jam in the backyard or lounging by the pool. The second refrigerator in the garage was perfect too for our large crew. My wife, and I and my in-laws regularly ate breakfast outside every morning on the large patio - warm sun, quiet mornings, and the rhododendron were a spectacular display of color as they were in full bloom around the pool. We hosted the rehearsal dinner comfortably for 24 people at the house and hired a local professional chef, Andrej, at Julie's recommendation and he prepared delicious hors d'oeuvres and an elegant meal. I would highly recommend Andrej to any of your guests - skilled chef, pleasant, and exceptionally neat. Our guests that night raved about the house and the meal! Our own extended families stopped by on Sunday morning and could not get over what a great place we had found. Julie was very responsive and helpful to any questions we had. Thank you, Julie, for being part of a most memorable week for us as we celebrated our son's wedding!

Wonderful, relaxing accommodation.

  • 5 of 5

I have, on many occasions, used VRBO to obtain rental properties for myself and my family. I have never found a more relaxing, well maintained, and well appointed home. This property was perfect for our needs. It was comfortable, clean, and beautiful. The access was easy, the landlord friendly and accommodating. Given the need, I hope to return to this home again.

Attentive Host, and Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

Julie was absolutely incredible! She was very responsive if I had any questions before or during the trip, and even provided us with her phone as a hotspot. The house was in perfect condition and made our weekend away exactly what we wanted. Our group of 12 all had places to sleep, and areas to hang. I cannot wait to return!
