Coming from the Netherlands, Europe, we didn't know for sure what we would find based on the description and photo's of the house. But what a great surprise! The house proved to be far nicer and more spacious than anticipated! It was clean, light and everything (furniture, amenities etc) was new. And all we needed was there! We liked the beach-style decorations. The extra living room downstairs was cool, the kids loved to hang out there, play games or watch TV. The breeze from the bay and the fans kept us cool in all rooms during the very hot days, we never switched the a/c on.
Outside, we had plenty of room to sit and bbq. Of course we enjoyed the beach, a few steps from the house and very easily accessible. The kids loved the kayaks! Even when further away from shore, the water wasn't deep and the temperature was nice (not icy like Cape Cod waters). The kids could carry the kayaks to the water themselves. The beach was never crowded so it was easy to spot them from the porch. The neighborhood was very quiet with practically no traffic.
From here we found it very easy to make day trips to Cape Cod, Boston, Wrentham Outlet stores, Provincetown for whale watching, Plymouth and Newport RI. We considered Onset (and e.g. Mattapoisett) as beautiful as the Cape - with less traffic! Marc Anthony's pizza restaurant in the village serves very good pizza.
Last but not least, the owners were really very nice and helpful. We'd like to thank them both for their hospitality once more. If flying across the Atlantic ocean were cheaper, we'd come here every year!
