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.

Fantastic rental in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting in Chatham and we will definitely go back again. The owner of this house was especially helpful ahead of time providing useful information about the surrounding area, including things to do, where to shop, where to dine out, etc. The house was immaculate and had everything one could possibly think of. The kitchen was stocked with more silverware, dishes, glasses, etc. than we could have possibly used. The bedroom set-ups worked well for multiple families. Thank you for letting us into your home, which is obviously not just a rental.

I am not sure where to begin. This home is a wonderful place to spend a week at the Cape. The owner, John, was so helpful, thoughtful, and wonderful to work with!!!!!!! He shared so many ideas about food, touring the Cape, things to do, etc. The home was spotless when we arrived, and the convenience of using their beach equipment, essentials in the kitchen, and basically whatever you needed was at your fingertips made it so much easier than what we have experienced when renting condos at the beach elsewhere. There were 4 couples who shared the home and there was plenty of room for more. The open kitchen was delightful and so spacious for all of us women to work together. I have only GREAT things to say about this place. Everything was easy!!! Thanks John for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home!!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your kind words. We really value the opportunity to have people use the house and enjoy it as much as my family has over the years.

Great house, great landlord, great week at the Cap

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful multi-generational vacation at John and Nancy's home. We were there with our kid and grandkids. We found everything we needed in the home for a delightful vacation. It is well equipped, plenty of room inside and out and a half mile from a delightful beach. Even though the weather was a little cool everyone had space to do what they wanted to do and we all had a great time and we hope to be back back next year for another multi-generational week :-)

A Very Special Property

  • 5 of 5

This lovely house in a quiet residential neighborhood was perfect for our multi-generational family of ten. A large, bright kitchen opens onto a beautiful deck and big yard. All rooms are well-kept and comfortable, and the children's play area upstairs and the ping pong table in the basement added to the family fun. In addition, the owner, John Canestraro, is a pleasure to rent from -- helpful, responsive, and friendly. We hope to return!
