About Marlene Pollock

My husband and I are both Bristol Community College professors. We have 2 handsome sons and 3 beautiful grandchildren. We purchased this large vacation home in order to accomodate our large family in one place, as we had rented on the Cape several times when our children were young. We chose Falmouth as it is only 45 minutes from our home in New Bedford. We have grown to love Falmouth for all its treasures - great beaches, a wonderful downtown, great restaurants, and plenty of shopping, movie theaters, etc. We always feel a sense of lightness when we cross the Bourne Bridge to spend time at our home. It's a great escape from the day-to-day hectic lives we all lead.

Marlene Pollock purchased this house in 2001

Why Marlene Pollock chose West Falmouth

We loved this property from the start! It's spaciousness and privacy sold us immediately. Also, it was well taken care of by the previous owners and we've continued to care for it in the same manner.

What makes this house unique

Quietness - you can hear the birds sing. Closeness to several beaches and private beach rights. Steps away from Falmouth bike path.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The location is very convenient to get to Woods Hole and Falmouth for shopping and restaurants. We also enjoyed the private beach on little island. It was great. This is my first time renting. The house was clean, spacious, and there was plenty of room for everyone. We were 4 adults and 3 teenagers and they all enjoyed it. If we are ever in this area again, I would not hesitate to rent it and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a home in Falmouth.

Perfect Cape Cod Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The first week of August we completed our fourth wonderful vacation at Marlene's home on Cape Cod. We look forward every year to having our three adult children and their families join us for a week. At the end of the week, the first thing we do is book again for the next year.

This house is perfect for our family. The grandchildren love the downstairs pool table, ping pong table and games. The house is configured so ten people can be comfortable and enjoy privacy. The screened-in sun porch, deck and large kitchen provide plenty of room for family meals. The large backyard and close proximity of the bike bath provide opportunities for endless entertainment.

My husband's family is from this area, so we know that the beach access is the best on Cape Cod.

We highly recommend this home and suggest you book early so you don't miss out.

Excellent Vacation HOuse

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week (07/16/16 – 07/23/16) at this wonderful vacation house. We were a group of 8 and found the space very large and accommodating. We ate every meal on the screened in porch, overlooking a wooded lot, and made great use of the game room’s pool and ping pong tables. The private beach was a short walk (through a beautiful neighborhood) and much larger (and nicer) than we anticipated. It was also a quick ride to Old Silver Beach to drop people off (and avoid the parking fee) and the town of Falmouth. Marlene and Dan thought of many little extras that made the house very welcoming. They were also quick to respond to any questions. This is our 5th year renting on the Cape and we would highly recommend this house.

August 2015 great house, great local, great time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for the first week in August and had a blast. The house is beautiful, stocked with clean linens, towels, beach towels, and plenty of room for friends to pop in. We were able to bring bikes an death toys and keep them in the clean, attached garage. The house is professionally clean, not "cottage clean" as we have seen other places.

The bike path is great for exercise, or walking to the ice cream shop (kinda ruins the exercise, but the ice cream is great!)

Very safe neighborhood; half mile from the beach. Perfect to ride a bike down in the morning, and come back to the house for lunch and naps. Our twin ten year old boys took all their showers in the private outdoor shower. They loved it and we loved that we didn't get the nice house all sandy.

The beach is private and absolutely beautiful. Great at low tide for little kids, or adults who like collecting hermit crabs.

Thanks for sharing your place- see you next year!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We came in to this house a party of 9 and found we had ample space to live in. The rooms are comfortable, the basement is equipped with a pool and ping-pong table, great for kids. The house is well located, minutes from a calm private beach. The surroundings are beautifull and we had nice quiet walks at night in the neigborhood. In a nutshell, we had lots of fun and I recommend this rental twithout any hesitation. Many thanks to Marlene for her help in getting around.
