Property type house

About the property

Family friendly fun: 6 Bedrooms (sleeps 15), 3 Full Bathrooms, Outdoor Shower

New for 2016 - Backyard makeover with putting surface (4 holes), playhouse (shaped like a lighthouse) for the kids, big bluestone patio with sitting area and eating area, hammock under the trees, lounge chairs, outside shower, and new sod with a sprinkler system for a gorgeous lawn. So relaxing, enjoying the salt air outside in this beautiful backyard...

Our (Your) Cape Escape is the perfect vacation spot near the beach. It accommodates multiple families/generations via a Cape style house with attached in-law suite.

To accommodate a big family, there are 3 sitting/living rooms to enjoy each other’s company, in addition to a new kitchen (and the crowd goes wild!!!), which is open to the main living room. All 15 can sit together to eat inside, or outside on the back patio under umbrellas. The 6 bedrooms provide plenty of bedding, 16 beds actually, so lots of options… Two of the bedrooms are part of the in-law suite, which also includes an additional kitchenette.

Our home has all the amenities you'd need:

- Dishwasher, Microwaves, BBQ Gas Grill, Washer/Dryer

- A/C in all bedrooms, individually controlled for comfortable sleeping (In-law suite A/C is in the living room, cooling the entire suite); Ceiling fans in the other rooms for accenting the sea breezes...

- 3 Color TVs with Cable (including premium channels), DVD player, Stereo with CD player, and iHome player

- WIFI internet access

Did I mention the new kitchen - Granite, Stainless Appliances, Center Island, Overhead Fan... so lovely.

It's redesigned (wall taken down) and now open to the living room - beautiful light colored Maple Cabinets, Granite Counter Tops, Stainless Steel Appliances, Tile Floor, new Recessed Lighting, Center Island with 4 stools and an Overhead Fan to enhance the ocean breezes. Just because you're not cooking a Thanksgiving meal, it doesn't mean you don't need a fantastic kitchen for the corn on the cob...

With a backyard renovation in 2016, we have a lovely yard to enjoy:

- Practice your putting. Mini-golf clubs, colorful balls and score sheets available for a 4 hole game right in our backyard. (Even foam balls and plastic clubs available for the wee little ones.)

- Play on the green lawn (sprinkler system)

- Sun yourself on the patios or deck

- Relax on a comfy lounge chair in the shade

- Enjoy conversation in the sitting area on the bluestone patio under a huge cantilever umbrella

- Swing on the hammock with your favorite friend under the stars

- Wash off the sun and the sand in a hot/cold outdoor shower

- Dine outside together at the long picnic tables under umbrellas, sharing the adventures of the day with your family

In Summary: We take pride in our summer home and are thrilled that others enjoy it as much as we do. Make our (your) Cape Escape the backdrop of your annual family vacation!

we made spectacular family memories at this home

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough about this cape home and the owners! We have been taking family vacations for years. This home was my favorite so far! A lovely walk to local beach...a beautiful back yard to relax, play or share a meal. The home was perfect for our family of 16 including 3 generations from 60 years old to one! The kitchen was well stocked and perfect for making our big family breakfasts! Close to so much yet such a quiet neighborhood. Debbie was attentive and helpful and made everything easy for us. Would definitely stay again!

great family house and yard!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families stay @ the house. It was very comfortable for everyone. The young children (6) absolutely loved the large back yard with the lighthouse, putting green and hammock. So many personal touches with the decorating. Loved it!!

Everything You're Looking For in Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house in South Yarmouth for a fabulous Girls Weekend in September 2016. Great location on quiet street off main road within walking distance to great beach. It is close to shopping, ice cream stand and restaurants. The entire house was SPARKLING clean when we arrived. Owner available by phone if necessary.

Large open concept living room flows into updated kitchen. Appliances are new and kitchen is well stocked with cooking equipment. Great island for meal prep with breakfast counter. There is a bright, open family style dining room off kitchen with access to backyard and grill with outdoor patio. Bedrooms are spacious. Bathrooms are also very clean and spacious.

The yard is large and well groomed with hammock and lots of outdoor seating. Good for outdoor games like ring toss and frisbe. The putting green is an especially nice feature. Golf clubs for putting are available as well as golf balls, even foam balls for small can be used by all ages in all weather. Board games and cards are also available inside.

I recommend this rental highly for families with young children as well as older children. Large enough for family and in-laws at the same time. Everyone can be together or large enough to find quiet, reflective alone space. Fabulous for Girls Getaway Weekend!

What a WONDERFUL Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 generations, with a total of 12 people, and this house offered plenty of living space and bedrooms, especially with the in-law suite. The yard was absolutely wonderful with the mini golf course, hammock, playhouse, outdoor shower, and lots of seating with sun and shade. We loved how close we were to lots of activities/restaurants and we biked to the beach (which has a playground!) every day. Debbie was wonderful to work with and we look forward to coming back again next summer!

loved this house

  • 5 of 5

We really loved this house and had a fantastic vacation! We had never rented a home before, and I was nervous about it, but Debbie was so good guiding us through the process, including giving us details about what we may need to pack. Everything was exactly as described on the website. Loved the website with all the pictures. The house layout worked out very well, with the living room open to the kitchen, and the back patio off another sitting area, which was open to the eating area. Space for everyone. We also loved the new kitchen, it worked well for all the moms, and had everything we needed.

so very nice

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out perfectly again for our vacation. This is our second year staying at this house. It's very clean, organized and well maintained. It had everything we needed. My favorite part is the layout of the kitchen to the living room, eating area and another sitting area, with walk out to the back patio. With the ceiling fans, the breeze throughout the rooms was great. Plenty of space to eat together, which was a problem at a house we used to rent. Many of the nights we ate together at the picnic tables outside under the umbrellas. Love the ocean air. Lots of comfy bedrooms also.

Location was great with lots to do. Little grandchildren played Pirates Cove mini-golf every other day. They continued their fun on the Pirate boat ride. Older grandchildren loved the para-sailing and banana boat rides from the beach down the street. They also liked the big waves at the National Seashore, which we had to drive to. Our favorite restaurant was The Skipper, right across from the beach, although we cooked in mostly in the new kitchen and used the new gas grill a lot. In the evening, we enjoyed hanging out together in the backyard, sitting on the adirondak chairs, lounge chairs and hammock. Being June, we took advantage of the late sunsets.

Debbie did provide great customer service, giving us info to prepare for the trip and checking in on us to see if all was going OK. In sharing her family's favorite things last year, we took her advice about The Skipper restaurant and the whale sightseeing tour. It was awesome!

I would absolutely recommend this to a friend. We are going back again next year.
