Description

Welcome to our pristine 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home which is set on beautifully landscaped grounds. It is located in a secluded residential area of West Yarmouth just a short 5-minute walk to a private beach on Lewis Bay. This eliminates public beach parking fees and lots that are full. Nearby public beaches include Englewood Beach which is a within walking distance and popular Seagull Beach which is about a mile away. Englewood Beach provides a public launch site for boating and kayaking. Nearby are activities that include swimming, shopping, fishing, great Cape restaurants, miniature golf, the inflatable park, kayaking, Cape Cod train and golf courses. The airport and the ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard are only a 15-minute drive. . The neighborhood is quiet with little traffic on the street, but Route 28 is also nearby with its many attractions.

This home has been completely renovated with central AC and a large open kitchen and dining room area. There is a half bath down the hall from the dining room equipped with a washer and dryer. The living/reading room includes a gas fireplace which provides a warm ambiance. There is a first-floor master bedroom with a king size bed and spacious bath.

The large bedrooms upstairs have oversized closets and many built-ins providing ample storage space. There is a queen sized bed in one bedroom and twin beds in the second bedroom. There is also a great room with a private stair and bunk beds. Part of the room is used for watching TV and another for playing games, cards or just hanging out. The upstairs bath has a shower and separate Jacuzzi tub.

In addition to central AC, amenities include a dishwasher, washer/dryer, cable TV, Internet, and BBQ grill. We do not provide linens but there are service providers on the Cape that rent linens, bikes, kayaks etc. One such place is recommended by Weneedavacation is www.essentialrentals.com which offers free delivery if booked early enough.

Great house!

We rented this house over the Labor Day weekend. We found the house as described - clean, spacious with all the necessities. The location was great! about 10min walk to the beach, very close to Route 28 with ice cream, shops, etc. Overall, we had a great time! Thank you!

Great week

We rented the Ricci's home for the first time this summer and everything was great. Lou & Barb were very easy to work with. We've rented 8 times in the West Yarmouth/Englewood neighborhood so really know the area. The home was exactly as the pictures showed. A very lovely home, in a great, quite neighborhood. The master bedroom was huge with a huge walk in closet. The master bath and upstairs shower stalls were custom tiled and were fantastic. We really did enjoy everything about the house. Loved sitting on the front porch in the early morning drinking tea and reading a book or at night just enjoying the evening. Would definitely recommend as a choice! show more show less

Loved it!

Beautiful home, great location! Loved everything about this house. We usually rent a different house every year we visit the Cape to add a little excitement to our trip, but this by far was my favorite! We will definitely stay here again.

Great home but Sadly disappointed in the end

The house was beautiful and in a perfect location in West Yarmouth. I thought the landlord and I had a nice correspondence and there was a mutual respect. The security deposit was not returned to us, however, because the house keepers contacted the owner and told her that we left an enormous amount of sand, some sea weed and they found some mac and cheese left on the floor. There were nine people staying in the house and 5 were children, ages 8 to 15. We spent all of Friday evening cleaning and Saturday morning. Yes, we cleaned that much on our vacation, which to some level is completely expected. We left with the feeling of content in our hearts and disappointment that we had to leave.

Despite the allegations, and let me remind you, there were no damages and there were no pictures of any of the house keeper's allegations provided to us. The owner, Barbara, stated that we would be responsible for the additional cleaning fee. Overall, if you want to enjoy a vacation without every day life minutia, this house is not worth the price for what you get, at least if you have kids. Most of our cons would have been overlooked if the house keeper and the landlord did not make an issue about sand (we are at the beach, that's where sand lives), sea weed (probably in the shower from someone's bathing suit), and some mac and cheese we missed from one of the kids (ok, that one is a little gross, but it happens). This house would better serve an over 55 years of age population.

Pro's
1. great house
2. great location

Con's
1. questionable housekeeper
2. no linens/bring your own
3. expected to do the cleaning lady's job before leaving
4. landlord does not provide any contracts electronically
5. coffee pot still had coffee and mold in it when we arrived
6. underneath couches were unclean
7. there was still food on dishes in the cabinet when we arrived

Owner Response:

We always appreciate feedback from our guests but were very sorry to hear of your disappointment. We try very hard to keep our home in pristine condition for all of our vacationing families to enjoy.

We have a sign posted in the house that asks our guests to call if anything is not up to snuff. Had we known of the problems you mentioned, we would have had our housekeeper come back and make things right. She has worked for us many years, and this is the first time there has been an issue. It took her and another woman an hour and a half hour to remove all the sand, food, and seaweed from the floor, rugs, and under the bed. We of course had to compensate her for her time, taking $50 out of your security deposit. Many families with young children have enjoyed this home, and we have had no other problems.

Again, we were sorry to receive this feedback, especially after the nice note you wrote to us after your vacation was over.

Absolutely perfect!

We loved it! This home was absolutely perfect and well-maintained. The kitchen was fabulous and the eating area was big enough for the entire family (and extended family) to gather round. The bedrooms were large and the built-ins provided great storage. The master bedroom was incredible with an extremely large walk-in closet and a great bathroom too! The yard was beautifully landscaped with a large front porch, which we all enjoyed . . . in the morning with our coffee watching the babies play on the front lawn . . . and in the evening watching the bigger kids play lawn games. The listing was extremely accurate in terms of amenities, layout, etc.

The home is close to so many great beaches. We went to a different beach almost every day, and all were lots of fun. The home is in a quiet, residential neighborhood, yet convenient to Rte. 28. Our vacation was absolutely perfect and we are looking forward to going back again next year. Thanks, Lou & Rich, for sharing your summer home with us!

It's a gem!!

We have been going to Cape for many years. We have rented and worked with many properties and property owners. Let me tell you this house and owners are truly amazing. Simply put, the house is amazing, it is beautiful, cozy, and spacious at the same time. There were 8 of us staying and it was large enough that adults were enjoying quiet time as the kids were having a blast and no one was bothered. Kids had a whole wing to themselves with their own play area and tv with cable and wifi connection, plus a big hit large bunk bed.

The amenities of the house are high end -- great large baths and showers, great Jacuzzi bath. There is plenty of storage so you didn't have to walk around coolers or luggage bags and we had many. There is tons of space in back and the front for kids to play around or to have a get together. The driveway of the house can easily fit 4 cars and then some. Beach is close by and is really nice since it's well protected and has only small waves. The house has so many great features most regular homes do not even come close to having (e.g., central air and vacuum).

The owners are wonderful folks that made sure that we had nothing to worry about from simple things as toilet paper and laundry soup to hooking up their Weber grill to central gas. That sure made our stay easy without going to get propane or carry charcoal to start dinner. Lou was a phone call away to answer any concerns or questions. The local is super close to everything from Hyannis Main Street to Captains Parker's fantastic clam chowder.

Simply put, this was one of the finest vacation we have had on the Cape, and a great deal had to do with the wonderful property we stayed in. We are definitely coming back next year!

Thank you. if you read this - do not hesitate to rent this house!! It's ALL BRAND NEW and AMAZING!!!

We began visiting the Cape together 30 years ago bringing our children to enjoy the ocean and the welcome given to our children at area restaurants and attractions. Before that, our parents had taken us to visit this beautiful vacation spot when we ourselves were children. Now our grandchildren are enjoying the Cape. We hope that your visit will be as pleasurable as ours and that you will return to the Cape over and over again. If there is any way we can help to make this happen, please don't hesitate to let us know.

What is special about this property?
This house has a lovely big kitchen where several people can work at the same time without bumping into each other. The hardwood floors throughout the house add to the charm. The farmer's porch is a wonderful place to sit and read or just watch the world go by. The accessibility of the nearby private beach makes it a uniquely special place for children. It is a quiet residential area but the many attractions available on route 28 are nearby.

What is special about your town?
West Yarmouth is a great town for children. There are many activities available for them along route 28. Miniature golf, inflatable park, kayaking, swimming, numerous restaurants, Christmas Tree Shop, creameries, antique shops, cranberry bogs and one of the most popular thrift stores on the Cape, VNA.
