Girls long weekend in October (love the Cape in October!) and house was a winner. Location - 180 degree water view and spectacular sunsets and sunrises. Even if you aren’t an early riser, set an alarm to catch at least part of a sunrise (then roll over back to sleep) - the colors and experience are worth it. Strolled to cute Barnstable for brunch, gourmet deli, wine, ice cream, etc. and then short drive to Hyannis for dinner and shopping. Cleanliness/furnishings -super clean (thank you!) and looks well maintained. Cape vibe, well equipped kitchen, comfy seating and beds, pillows etc., all in a clean design type of way. Beach on property is private and rustic feeling - you can swim and wade. If you have kayaks, paddleboards, windsurfers, etc. then maybe launch right off the property. We enjoyed lounging in Adirondack chairs near the water, but if you are looking for a sandy beach to sunbath, or need lifeguards to watch kids, then use the house’s Beach Pass to access lots of nearby options.
