Description

Our professionally decorated 4 bedroom 2 bath home was featured on HGTV where designer Monica Pedersen declared us a winner!

Monica commented ''They created a backyard oasis; you don't have to go anywhere else''. ''Design wise they did everything right and also introduced some really creative, charming details that would make any family feel welcome and excited to be on the Cape''!

Spend your days tanning and playing the beach, enjoying our bicycles on the Rail Trail, or using our kayaks Seymour Pond and then come home to relax in the hot tub!

Our lovely home features seaside decor, Pottery Barn furnishings, and a touch of antiques. It is fully stocked with all the comforts of home and located on large landscaped lot on a private, quiet cul-de-sac.

Everything you need for a relaxing vacation is here, including linens*, towels*, beach chairs, coolers, kayaks and bicycles!

Enjoy the kitchen with granite counters, maple cabinets, island and new appliances.

A direct plumbed Weber grill & outdoor dining for 8 is perfect for a family dinner, and the teak bar overlooks the 90 jet hot tub with waterfall. All this atop a 30' long TimberTech deck! Of course you can always end a perfect Cape Cod day around the fire pit! Retire in the evening and be assured of all new mattresses and bedding in the 4 spacious bedrooms. The gorgeous new bathrooms have 4 foot long granite vanities, Kohler rain shower heads, and travertine and tile flooring.

There is plenty of comfortable seating in the living room so you can enjoy 50+ DVDs on the flat screen TV, extra lighting for that good book or jigsaw puzzle. Need to stay connected to the office or upload your vacation photos to Facebook? Not a problem with the high speed wireless internet, desk and unlimited local and long distance calling.

The sun-filled first floor features lovely hardwood oak and bamboo floors. Two bedrooms, each with 2 twin beds, as well as a full bath is just down the hall. Upstairs are two large queen bedrooms, each with a private sitting area, and they share a full bath with granite topped vanity. One of the Queen bedrooms also has a flat screen TV and DVD player. 2 ZONE CENTRAL Air conditioning will keep you comfortable if needed, but the house has great breezes when the windows are open.

We have thought of everything, so you don’t have to spend your time packing the SUV with all that you own! Poke around in the garage and you will find beach chairs, beach umbrella, sand toys, Kayaks, boogey boards, sports equipment, bicycles and a cooler for your time at the beach. After your day at the shore, you will find a clothes line to dry your bathing suits and towels in the fresh Cape Cod air.

Your beds will be made upon your arrival should you choose to add on our linen rental package. The beautiful and immaculate queen bedded rooms on the second floor have high thread count sheets on top of brand new pillow top and memory foam mattresses. You will find lamps for bedtime reading, and generous closet space for your belongings.

The sunny kitchen includes a dishwasher, microwave, ice maker, and trash compactor. All the conveniences of home including a coffee maker, toaster, blender, lobster and corn pots, wine glasses, high end cutlery and stainless gourmet pots and pans. Drink your morning coffee at the kitchen island or even in the hot tub! Fine barware will have you serving up Margarita’s and Martini’s in no time!

Our newly finished basement includes a TV viewing area (with SMART TV and full access to Netflix), air hockey table, and craft and coloring area. Plenty of room for fun and play!

Centrally located and close to it all! The home is just 2 miles from the warm ocean waters of Bank Street beach on Nantucket Sound in Harwich and less than 1 mile to the top rated Cranberry Valley Golf Course, the paved Cape Cod Rail Trail bike bath, free tennis and basketball courts, playground, public library, concert gazebo, the Cape Cod Baseball League Harwich Mariner's Field, weekly (Thursday) Farmer’s Market and Dunkin Donuts.

In just 1 – 3 miles and you will be at the batting cages, go-carts, art galleries, junior theatre, movie theater, CVS, Shaw’s/Star market supermarket, Fish Markets, Shops and restaurants of Harwich and Harwichport, Freedom Cruise Line (with express ferry service to Nantucket), George’s Pizza and the famous Sundae School ice cream. Spectacular boutique shopping in Chatham awaits you!

Drive north to Cape Cod Bay and the tidal flats of Brewster and Orleans for an unusual beach experience for the kids. Try to catch the sunset at low tide and bring your camera for an unforgettable moment.

We rented houses all over Cape Cod before selecting this spacious Cape in a quiet and quaint neighborhood for our purchase. Now families can have the same luxuries and amenities that they have at home, leaving time for relaxing and renewing with family and friends. More than 75% of our renters are repeat renters who travel from various states and countries to enjoy our high quality rental. Early booking is encouraged.

Please, for consideration of all of our guests, we do not allow pets or smoking.

Super vacation home

We have always stayed on the Outer Cape before; this was our first time staying on Nantucket Sound. We could not have asked for a better house to stay in. All amenities were as described in the listing, the location was great, and Rhonda was amazingly responsive to any questions we had, no matter how minor. I ended up having to do a whole bunch of work while on vacation, so having a solid and fast internet connection was a lifesaver. The backyard really is amazing - we practically lived out there anytime we were at the house. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook every meal we thought of. All in all a great place. Next time we stay on the Sound, we will definitely be back here! show more show less

Another fantastic stay in Harwich

This house is so good we came back again. Improbably, the house was even better than last year, with the installation of AC and some nice new canoes in the garage. This is a very comfortable home where the owners have gone to a great deal of trouble to make things as nice as possible for their guests - as if they have put themselves in the shoes of their guests and asked themselves, what would really want to make the perfect vacation? The house is very clean, well maintained, well-equipped and feels just like home. We loved the hot tub, the fire pit, the canoes, the outside grill, the bikes and the lovely garden. The outside shower was brilliant after a hard day at the beach!

Harwich is a great place to visit and we found plenty to do. We enjoyed the bike trail, swimming in ponds, visiting our favourite beach at Red River. The weather was mostly great, except for the surprising arrival of very large hailstones in a storm one night. The only disappointment was when we turned up at A and W's diner for the Wednesday evening classic car meet to find it had been cancelled (we went last year - amazing!). Lots of places to eat great ice cream. Most of all, though, the house really made the stay for us - so relaxing, peaceful and completely worry-free. Putting the key in the lock when we arrived felt like coming home. We shall return!

Wonderful Family Vacation Home

We were fortunate to rent the Harwich home for five weeks this summer and couldn't have been happier with selecting this home. The owners thought of everything to make our stay perfect for a family of six. The garage is filled with every toy needed for the beach and playing in the yard after a long day. Our children were able to skateboard and ride their bikes on the street and felt very safe. The backyard is where we spent most of our time after returning from the beach. The jacuzzi and fire pit provided us with hours of family fun.

I can't say enough about Rhonda and Mark. They were timely on any of our concerns and made us feel at home in their beautiful home. They took great pride in making their home perfect for renting especially considering we rented for five weeks. We loved Harwich so much, we purchased a home!!!! If we didn't, we would have put a deposit on the summer of 2015 on the "Leap of Faith."

Awesome!

We spent a week here with family in mid August 2013. The property was a little more expensive than we typically pay, but the property was well worth it. There are so many amenities with the house it's hard to think of anything extra you would need. The bikes were great fun, all the beach gear was great, board games, the hot tub is fantastic, and the huge deck for family breakfast was wonderful. I'd highly recommend to anyone thinking of renting in the Harwich area who is looking for a high end experience on a quiet block. Owners were very responsive to all our questions and requests. Couldn't have gone any better, terrific experience. show more show less

Home Sweet Home

From the minute we arrived we felt right at home in a quiet neighborhood and private lot, a beautifully landscape yard with large fire pit we enjoyed at night. The house boasts a new kitchen, two new bathrooms, a large new deck with awesome hot tub and weber grill. Many upgrades to this house, all meticulously done. A garage full of good beach stuff and quality bicycles. The 4 bedrooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. The location for us was great, one minute to Route 6 at exit 10, very central to all our favorite beaches from Provincetown to National Sea Shore, Coast Guard Beach, Chapin, Mayflower, West Dennis, Kalmus, etc. Love the outdoor shower - a must for beach goers. Much thought, time and money was put into this house, the best house we have had on Cape Cod. show more show less

Wonderful week

We had a wonderful week and everything was perfect. House is very nice and spacious. We spent most of the time outside enjoying the deck and garden and had all our dinners outside. It is a quiet area and well located not too close or too far from service places. 5 minutes to bicycle path and close to Bank St Beach. One of the best rentals I made over last 10 years.

Fantastic Cape Cod Vacation

We had a fabulous week at “Leap of Faith” in Harwich this year. Booking accommodation online is always slightly worrying but it was such a relief and a pleasure to arrive at this property, which is in a nice, very quiet neighbourhood. The house itself was impeccably clean and fresh, and stuffed with good quality equipment to meet our every expectation. There were bikes and everything we could possibly need for the beach. The yard was private and well-maintained and our family really enjoyed the hammock, tub, outside shower, firepit and the grill. Everything was just so comfortable.

Nowhere we wanted to go was too far away. We love going to Red River Beach (about 10 minutes’ drive away) and to Lighthouse Beach in Chatham. We enjoyed kayaking on Swan Pond River and we loved biking on the Rail Trail, which is nearby.

We reckon that we have stayed in about 10 houses in the US during the past 6 years (including 7 or 8 on Cape Cod) and this house is one of the best we have stayed in. We are hoping to come back next year. Mark and Rhonda were really helpful throughout the process and have obviously worked hard to provide a very happy and high quality vacation home.

2012 Cape Cod Vacation

I want to thank Rhonda and Mark for allowing our family to stay in their Cape Cod home. We truly had a wonderful experience and from the moment we walked in, we felt at home. The recently updated kitchen with granite counters, all new baths, living room with flat screen TV and numerous DVD's to choose from as well as the comfortable beds made the vacation one we won't forget. We had Smores around the firepit, relaxing time on the hammock and a couple of good games with the air hockey table. A day at the beach was no problem with the supplied Tommy Bahama beach chairs, cooler and boogie boards, not to mention less packing for us to do! All the amenities made it a pleasure to come home from our days activities and plan for dinner. Even after a day at the beach, it was nice to have the kids clean up in the new outdoor shower before entering the home all sandy. The bike trail was convenient and the selection of bikes and helmets made it easy to wake up and go for a ride. Being a big Dunkin Donuts family, that was also a pleasant surprise to find so close to the home. We truly enjoyed our vacation in this Cape Cod home and would stay here again!

Guest Review for Leap of Faith

Our family had a wonderful, relaxing week in this beautiful Cape Cod home in Harwich. I have been vacationing on Cape Cod since I was a child and over the years have stayed in many different locations. This home was by far the nicest, cleanest, and most comfortable rental I have ever stayed in. We enjoyed fabulous weather the entire week and relaxing days on the beautiful beaches of Harwich followed by refreshing outdoor showers and dips in the hot tub. Our three children had so much fun playing with the many toys that are provided or watching a movie in the living room at the end of the day. Even our child who has Asperger's Syndrome felt right at home and was able to unwind and have fun with the family. It was so easy to go to this home with provided linens, towels and kitchen gear. The beds were all unbelievably comfortable and the entire house was immaculate. We absolutely loved it and have already booked another stay for next year! We are making this an annual tradition. Thank you for making our dream vacation come true! show more show less

Guest Review of Leap of Faith Home, Harwich, MA

The "Leap of Faith" home is the perfect place to spend a relaxing and enjoyable vacation with family and friends. This home is tucked away in a quiet Harwich neighborhood with beaches, grocery stores, restaurants and sight seeing close by. Beautifully decorated, furnished and landscaped this property offers many opportunities to just kick back and enjoy life...relax in the hot tub, read a book on the deck, nap on the hammock, roast marshmallows by the fire pit, or cool off in the outside shower. The kitchen is a foodies delight...equipped with all the essential appliances, small appliances, gadgets and tableware to prepare and serve meals for your family and friends at your leisure. A friend visiting us from Boston renamed this home "The Magical Cape House" because everything you need or want magically appears... thanks to the owners and their fine attention to detail. Thanks, Rhonda and Mark, for another great stay on the Cape! show more show less

We purchased this lovely Cape on the Cape in late 2009 and embarked on a full renovation of the interior that Winter and Spring. We pride ourselves on offering everything you need for a great vacation and define ''Luxury'' as not having to want for anything. Great Hybrid bikes, coolers for the beach, boogie boards for the kids, lobster pots, picks and butter warmers - it's all here so you can relax and enjoy.

What is special about this property?
Not only do we present a spotless, clean home (we are sticklers for that), we continually strive to update the home and it's fixtures.

You will not find more perfect outdoor space to unwind at after your day at the beach, boutique shopping in Chatham, or a round of golf.

Re-live the highlights of the day around the fire pit, soak in the illuminated hot tub, grill up some fresh fish on the Weber grill. Feel free to cut flowers from the gardens or take a steamy hot shower in the extra large outdoor shower.

When you are ready to doze, central air conditioning will keep you cool (2 zones) as you drift away in a very quiet neighborhood that ends in a cul-de-sac.



What is special about your town?
Our location in Harwich is centrally located to Rt. 6 so you can get to your destinations quickly and is centrally located to mid and lower Cape destinations. Stroll through Harwich port, zip to neighboring Chatham, or head over to the bay beaches in Orleans.
