Great Location and Open Layout!
We stayed at this property and found it was just lovely. The open floor layout allowed both family time and privacy for my teen children. The kitchen was well stocked with all the kitchen gadgets we required. I appreciated the fact that we did not have to pack sheets and towels as the car was already packed to capacity with the rest of our gear. The linens were all of good quality. Nauset beach was so close and the surfing was great. Having a private outdoor shower after the sand at the beach was a nice feature. The furnishings were nice and comfortable and the seating for dining was more than adequate when we had friends over for dinner. It was nice that the kitchen is not isolated from the entertaining space so while cooking I could be part of the group. We enjoyed dining on the deck outside as well. The Central AC kept the house cool and we had very warm weather during our week on the Cape. The basketball hoop and soccer net went to good use. Overall, It was a great vacation at an enjoyable property!
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay!
We loved the house and it's location. Would love to book for same 2 weeks next year. And special thanks to the property manager who was available by phone when we needed her.
Great family reunion house!
We have rented many houses over the years but hands down this was the best equipped! The kitchen was perfect for the many meals we cooked. We could all gather around the dining table, which extends for larger groups, for meals and games. The yard was perfect for our badminton set and the basketball hoop added extra fun! The nearby lakes are beautiful. Only caveat would be that the house has a lot of stairs if that's a concern for anyone. Even though the house fronts Monument Road it was very quiet. The deck with BBQ overlooks lawn and trees. Absolutely recommend!
Just bring your bathing suit and sunscreen......everything else is provided!
This house was extremely well equipped. The large, U-shaped kitchen was high end and had everything down to spices, coffee filters, paper towels and ziploc bags. We had a problem with the dishwasher, which was almost new, and Mary Ellen had a new one installed the next day. The living room was spacious and we fought over the ends of the leather sectional, which were also recliners. Even cuddle blankets were provided. We were 6 adults and 2 dogs and there was plenty of room for all. On the downside, our 10 year old lab had trouble with the many staircases getting him in and out, as did our 6'5", size 15 shoe son with the narrow, spiral staircase to the twin room above the kitchen. This would not be a problem for a younger, shorter family!
The location was great, close to town, and right between Skaket Beach on the bayside and Nauset on the oceanside. And a short drive to our favorite restaurant, Abba (try the lobster shrimp pad thai).
A classy place to call home!
We had a recent family reunion in Orleans. A group of us stayed at Mary Ellen’s home and extended our vacation. It was a fabulous vacation rental! The pictures and recent home improvements done are very much understated on the rental website. Often with rentals, I find that the pictures on a website look better than the reality upon arriving. Our experience was the complete opposite in this rental. The furnishings and household touches were great quality. The household touches and decorations were done with class and in good taste. Cooking was made easy as the house is well stocked with pots, cookware, and kitchen utensils. The outside shower was very convenient to clean sandy kids off straight from the beach. We had wonderful warm weather that week and the Central AC made all the difference to keep the house comfortable. We will definitely stay again in this home.
A great well maintained vacation home close to all amenities.
We absolutely loved this house that is a quick jump to two fresh water lakes and a quick ride to two different saltwater beaches.
We (my 11 year old son and wife) rented this house with another family (of four) and we completely loved it. We grilled out on the back patio each night, sat out for coffee every morning and played in the back yard (basketball, and we brought beanbag boards and bocce balls)
Each room has its own TV and the upstairs above the kitchen had privacy for my son to get away from the babies in the house.
We hope to stay aging here possibly next year. Thank you for the accommodation with our lab also Mary-Ellen.
Thank you for the lovely review of my property!
I am glad that you had a great vacation.
I would love for you to stay again next year.
Best, Mary Ellen
