Wonderful Family Home - Great location

  • 5 of 5

To get a break from the Arizona heat, my family came to Boston to visit family and decided to spend some time at the beach as well. This home was a fantastic place for us to host our family (mom, dad & two girls 8 &5) plus a rotating cast of aunts, uncles and cousins throughout the week. The home has a spacious 5 bedrooms with enough space for all to be comfortable. The kids loved the upstairs loft space for hanging out and playing (the pictures don't do the space justice). The kitchen was the most well stocked kitchen that we've had in all of our VRBO stays, which was fabulous as we enjoy cooking. We used the grill almost every night of our stay as we enjoyed fresh fish from the local Chatham Market. Our favorite part of the home was the back deck. We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening dinners there while the kids played in the yard. The beach is a close walk and it is not a far drive to anything you need (grocery, downtown Chatham, etc.) John was a pleasure to work with as we planned our vacation. We look forward to hopefully returning to beath the AZ heat again.

Our family rented this home to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary this past summer. We had such a wonderful time in John's beautiful home that we are thinking of returning next summer! This home, and the layout, was perfect for our family, which consisted of my parents, my sister and her two young children, and myself, husband, and young son. We felt like everyone had adequate space with room to spare. The kitchen is large with a pretty, cozy patio where we sat for breakfast each morning. The beach is an easy walk and the home is centrally located to where we could get to surrounding areas easily by car. The home was also very clean and provided all of the amenities we needed. John was an exceptional host. He spent a lot of time helping my sister and I plan a celebration for our parents', including putting together documents with a wide variety of ideas (activities, restaurants, catering services, etc.) we could choose from. His information and insight was invaluable and my parents were thrilled with their celebration! Our highlights were an evening sail with Matt from Chatham Classic Yacht Charters and dinner at the Wequassett Resort. John was easily accessible by email and responded quickly to questions/requests. Our family highly recommends staying in this home for your Chatham vacation. We can't wait to go back!

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

Having two small kids we often rent houses if we make it out on any sort of "vacation", and this was by far our best rental yet!! Everything is as described and better. The pictures don't do the house justice, it's bigger than we expected and it comes stocked with every single amenity you could think of. Best of all the landlord is the most organized, helpful, responsive landlord we have ever worked with.

The location is fantastic, it's a good 10 minute walk to the beach - down hill on the way there but uphill on the way back, so consider drop offs if you carry a lot of gear. three families stayed comfortably at the house and one of us bought a week's parking pass ($75, can use at any beach in chatham) and would drive the gear there (parking is plentiful at any time of day) while the rest of us enjoyed the walk. the beach (ridgevale) is PERFECT for kids, with small tide pools they can play happily and safely in for hours, plenty of crabs and minnows to catch, a delicious snack bar that has tons of lunch options (be forewarned, long wait) and easy to manage (you don't have to walk 2 miles to the shore like some other beaches down the cape). outdoor shower back at home makes clean up a breeze.

house is only a few minutes drive to chatham center, the BEST ice-cream shop (Old School House Icecream) is less than a 3min drive away (cash only), and a delicious bakery is walking distance. Though you could easily eat in everyday - pantry has some essentials, every spice you could imagine is available and alphabetized, keurig AND a regular coffee maker, ice-cream maker, TWO fridges/freezers (extra one in the garage...and we needed it!), grill outside that never runs out of gas (connected to the house), i mean seriously stocked kitchen. soap/detergent needed for dishwasher and washing machine are supplied.

you cannot go wrong with this fact, i almost wish i wasn't writing this review cause i don't want to give it up! we'll be back for sure.

Perfect for many generations!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for 3 generations (4 adults, and 3 kids age 3 1/2 and under) and it was perfect for us. It was spotless and incredibly clean, which was a huge bonus especially with little ones that play on the floor. The kitchen is wonderfully stocked and just beautiful! It's bright with lots of natural light, tons of seating, and is perfect for all our needs. We really enjoyed being able to seat everyone at one table! The bedrooms were comfortable and pretty and it was nice to have two seating areas (the living room downstairs and the sitting/family room upstairs) so that we could all watch what we wanted on TV. We also enjoyed sitting on the back deck and the little ones had fun running around in the yard. John, the owner, was incredible, providing fabulous information, staying in contact, and being available when we had questions. He really made it easy for us. Last, but not least, Ridgevale beach was perfect for the little ones. In coming to the Cape for 37 years, it was the first time we visited this particular beach, but it was a daily morning event with the kids. We had a wonderful time and are grateful to John for sharing their home and we look forward to returning for many years to come!

Beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome home to rent in the Cape!! It has everything you would ever need and more. The kitchen is big, with a lots of seating. Our family enjoyed gathering there for our meals, playing cards, etc. The house is very spacious-especially the upstairs rooms. Our kids (ages 13-21) enjoyed hanging out in the upstairs family room together. There is a TV and all kinds of books and games that kept them occupied. The home is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We enjoyed our coffee in the morning on the deck and the kids (and adults) enjoyed wiffle ball in the large back yard. The days were warm and the nights were cool and we didn't even need to turn on the AC all week.

We especially loved Chatham-it's so quaint, with lots to see and do. The location of the house is great. It's within walking distance of the beach and it's a short drive to other cities in the Cape. The grocery store is very nice and only a couple of miles away.

Last but not least, the owner of the home, John, is wonderful!!. He helped us plan our trip, answered all of our questions, and handled all correspondence quickly and efficiently.

I would definitely rent this home again !!

It was the perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

The house was more than we expected, room setup, a fully stocked kitchen with state of the art appliances, lovely decor. This all added to a memorable family holiday. Having the beach close by was an added bonus. The grandchildren spent there days surfing and paddle boarding. John was very helpful in acquainting us with the area. We would and have already recommended this property to friends and relatives.
