Great week to end the summer

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this house for our vacation on the Cape to end the summer. The house was in great condition when we arrived and the location was a short drive/bike to town, the First Pier, and the supermarket. Sue (owner) was great in both her communication before our arrival and in response to questions during our stay. We had plenty of room for a family of four and two grandparents who joined for part of the week. The backyard was a great place for the kids to play when we were between activities. One suggestion - the driveway is steep, which is typically not a problem but when we had a hitch bike rack attached to the car we scraped a little on the way in/out. However, there's plenty of room to park at the top of the driveway, so this is easily avoidable and equally convenient to parking in the driveway.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review--- so happy you enjoyed your stay! Yes! I warn about the driveway to all in the rental agreement, email & a posted sign in the house- it's steep! I recommend k-turn out & even better parking up top! Hope you are able to return.

Excellent home base for our Cape adventures

  • 5 of 5

This amply property offers very tasteful furnishings and is located at close range to the nice little town of Chatham and its beaches.

The town's harbour is within walking distance.

The owner is very supportive.

Overall the place was ideal for our family meeting and a perfect home base for our trips across the Cape.

Couldn't have been nicer!

  • 5 of 5

My sister, sister-in-law and I spent 5 days here for a "girls' trip." Even though it rained nearly every day and we spent more time there than we might have if it had been sunny we loved the time we spent in our cozy "home."

The house is immaculate and the beds are exceptionally comfortable. The brand new kitchen is equipped with everything you'd ever need. We ended up eating at home more often than we expected because we had everything we needed. We recommend going to the Chatham Fish and Lobster market and bringing home cooked lobster dinners. You'll find all the lobster-eating tools you'll need in the kitchen. Fun!

The location was great...close to everything you need and centrally located on the cape for easy access to everything it has to offer.

Sue, the owner, was the perfect host providing us with ideas for what to do and where to eat and was very responsive to our questions.

I would highly recommend this rental!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

One of the Best homes we have ever stayed in at the Cape. Close to town, close to our favorite beaches, close to the grocery store, Great location! We had 6 adults and it handled us perfectly, and there was still room for more in the finished basement! The family room fit us all and the large table in the dining room was a must for all of us. I enjoy cooking and the kitchen was a great size and the appliances and utensils were very nice. The knives were amazing, same as I use at home and very sharp! We spent a couple of nights down by the grill on the patio and it was perfect. The single A/C units in each room gave everyone the comfort of their perfect temperature. The house was spotless when we arrived and there was plenty of towels and sheets etc. I contacted the owner a couple of times via email with a question and her response was very quick! Our family would go back for sure, it was so great!

Fabulous home & excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

My family loved staying in this home for vacation this year and plan to return! It is very spacious & had everything we needed for the little cooking I did. The beds were So comfortable. I slept better than I do at home. I contacted Sue several times prior to arrival with questions and she was very prompt in response and very accommodating. We walked to the 3 local town landing beaches every morning & early evenings. Cow Yard, Conchpinicut & Scatteree are all very close by. We enjoy taking walks so we walked into town for lunch a few times. Not recommended for little ones but it is only a little over a mile & there are a few different routes to take. There were bikes available for our use but we never went to the bike path. We heard it is great and goes to neighboring towns. We visited the fish pier several afternoons, ate at the Red Nun, Chatham Squire, Yardarm & Embers.

We fell in love with Chatham and plan to visit often!
