Superb house

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the house. Perfect for 2 families, especially with young children as the pool is fenced with a lock. Everything we could have wanted was already in the house and any requests we had we dealt were dealt by the owner immediately. We loved it!!

Clean, Great Space, Fun

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week meeting up with another family of 5 at this property. The kids thoroughly enjoyed the pool and played in it all day, everyday. The property was great for our group of 10, with 3 separate living rooms, lots of games, books, toys for kids, great outdoor area and lots of sleeping space. It is walkable to the cute downtown and also to a very nice beach. We loved our week there and hope to return!

Perfect for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week in July for a long overdue family vacation (6 adults and 2 children under 4 years old). None of us had ever been to Cape Cod before and we weren't sure what to expect. The house was beautiful and clean and we had everything we needed. We were also able to walk to the cute town to go shopping or go out to eat (and, of course, get ice cream!). We went to nearby Dowses Beach and Craigville Beach and took the ferry over to Martha's Vineyard one day. The backyard is very large and we most of our time swimming in the pool, grilling out and just relaxing. Julie made the rental process super easy and she provided lots of information about the town and Cape Cod (restaurants, beaches, parks, shopping, etc.). We hope to come back soon!!

Beautiful, comfortable and well-maintained home with gorgeous yard and great swimming pool!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented the house for a week in June for our son's wedding. What a great choice we made! We could not have been happier with the house and beautiful yard. The house comfortably slept the six of us, plus my in-laws, and my son's three groomsmen who joined us at the end of the week. They slept in a large upstairs family room. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and have very comfortable beds. The bright, airy kitchen has a great kitchen island and breakfast table to eat at, and the adjoining living room is so comfortable. There is a neat family room too, with a big couch and armchair and a table that seats six or eight (can't remember!). We spent most of our time in the kitchen, living room, or outside. Our two sons and groomsmen shot many a game of pool in the garage when they weren't playing Can-Jam in the backyard or lounging by the pool. The second refrigerator in the garage was perfect too for our large crew. My wife, and I and my in-laws regularly ate breakfast outside every morning on the large patio - warm sun, quiet mornings, and the rhododendron were a spectacular display of color as they were in full bloom around the pool. We hosted the rehearsal dinner comfortably for 24 people at the house and hired a local professional chef, Andrej, at Julie's recommendation and he prepared delicious hors d'oeuvres and an elegant meal. I would highly recommend Andrej to any of your guests - skilled chef, pleasant, and exceptionally neat. Our guests that night raved about the house and the meal! Our own extended families stopped by on Sunday morning and could not get over what a great place we had found. Julie was very responsive and helpful to any questions we had. Thank you, Julie, for being part of a most memorable week for us as we celebrated our son's wedding!
