Description

Description

This renovated home is spotlessly clean and has four wonderful air conditioned bedrooms all with cable flat screen TV's, a large air conditioned sunken living room (everyone in your group must be able to take two steps down into the sunken living room) with a 47' HDTV, DVD player, a chess table, and a very large inventory of movies (DVD and VHS). This house is set up perfectly for extended family or two families to share.
The kitchen has 2 convection ovens, microwave, and is supplied with quality cookware and spices. Quality refrigerator, dish washer, cook top, and washer & dryer. There is a large backyard deck with a huge Weber gas grill and a large glass table that fits 8 people and 8 comfortable chairs, an outside shower, and a lovely garden with a 2-person settee. In 2015 we added a front deck with two very comfortable rocking chairs and a 2-person glider. The front deck is a lovely place for a morning cup of coffee. The property has rights to Owl Pond, a small private swimming pond that is 5 minute walk from house. Our home is conveniently located on the edge of Nickerson State Park which has four clean beautiful stocked ponds that are all walking distance from our house. Flax Pond is 15-20 min. walk down a quiet dirt road that can be accessed behind our property. Flax pond has lovely fresh water beaches for swimming.
In our garage you will find at least 8 beach chairs, 4 beach umbrellas and anchors, a beach cart, and many coolers. Our house is close to both bay and ocean side beaches and many excellent restaurants. There is a foosball table in the unfinished basement.
Guests provide their own bed linens, bath and beach towels. Please note that smoking, pets, outdoor structures, tents, and fires are not permitted on the property. If you have any visitors please inform them of the no pets and no smoking policies. The minimum age for the signer of lease is 30 and the maximum occupancy is 8 people, including children. If smoking occurs in the house, if pets are permitted into the house, or if the occupancy of your group exceeds 8 people the $500 deposit will be used to cover additional costs.

Thank you very much for considering renting our house for your vacation on Cape Cod!

Best regards,
Marilyn and Bruce

We had a great time here at the Cape. It has been about 25 years since our last visit.
Your house is well situated to visit many beaches and attractions and the neighborhood is nice and quiet.
Thanks for all the directions and the well stocked kitchen. We didn't lack for anything. I also appreciated your lovely gardens.
Thanks for a lovely stay.

This home was absolutely perfect! It was extremely well appointed and everything was just perfect!
Every inch of this property, from the interior to the wonderful farmer's porch and the great patio out back was just beautifully maintained. The kitchen was a cook's dream. The wonderful couple who own this home clearly thought of everything and anything that any family would want or need during their stay. It is obvious that they love their home and want all who stay there to feel the same way. We had such a wonderful time... I only wish we could have stayed longer. I highly recommend this rental property! Christine

Great house, even better owners!

This is our second summer staying at the House on Holly and it did not disappoint! Marilyn and Bruce have a wonderful home that is clean and very well maintained. It is tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, and yet close to the Brewster and Orleans beaches. Marilyn is unmatched in her responsiveness to questions and went out of her way to make us feel welcome for our two weeks on the Cape this year. We can't wait to return!

We have been very lucky to stay at the "House on Holly" for quite a few years. The owners treat their guests as family and provide us with nothing but the best of accommodations. The home is beautifully decorated and maintained and the location is absolutely perfect. Just a short walk from Nickerson State Park, the house is virtually minutes away from many Brewster beaches. The owners provide everything for families to have a great trip including but not limited to a wonderrful DVD collection, cable TV, family fun games, beach chairs, umbrellas, toys for kids not to mention a great grill & deck! The front porch is absolutely serene where you can relax, read a book or just watch the birds and chipmunks at the feeder! The owners are special people and their house shows it!
My Response

Paul and Trish, Thank you for the absolutely wonderful review. We are very lucky that you both choose to return summer after summer. Thank you again for taking such good care of the house, you are the best! Warm regards, Marilyn and Bruce

Wonderful vacation home in quiet neighborhood

Our family enjoyed a fantastic two-week stay at the House on Holly. The owners were very communicative in advance of our stay and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The house is very clean and well-maintained. It includes a large collection of information about local attractions and dining options. The kitchen is wonderfully well-stocked, as are the upstairs closets, which include all kinds of children's books and board games. Our favorite spot was the front porch with the cozy rocking chairs. A great spot for morning coffee and bird watching. Very peaceful! We will return to the House on Holly in 2017! show more show less

House on Holly!

We stayed at the "House on Holly" last summer. It was our 7th year in the rental. We love the house -- it so comfortable and well appointed. The kitchen equipment is high end -- better than anything in my own house! We just need to bring clothes, towels, and sheets. Everything else in already in the house.

Marilyn and Bruce are great -- so thoughtful and helpful. I'm afraid to ask Marilyn any questions about the house or contents because I know the item will be installed that same day even if I was just making conversation. We like them so much, we visit them in the off season if we are there at the same time. The location is great, about 1 mile to Crosby Beach. If you walk out the backyard, there is a path leading right into Nickerson State Park. We love to hang out by Cliff Pond. And Owl Pond is right around the corner. Restaurants and shopping nearby. Can't wait to return on July 15, 2017. show more show less

We absolutely loved our week at Cape Cod in the House on Holly. We've been coming to the Cape for many years and this is the best equipped, most friendly house we've ever rented.
Bruce and Marilyn bent over backwards to insure the comfort of our stay, and offered many suggestions of fun things to do, great places to eat and ways to relax. We totally enjoyed our visit. On the one really rainy day everyone had a place to sit and read, play games, chat and chill out. Our three grandchildren loved the upstairs rooms and the foosball table - a big hit!
Thanks for making this such a wonderful place to stay. We'll be back!

Bruce and I purchased this house on 2008 and have been renting the summer weeks ever since that first summer. We take great pride in offering a house that is clean, comfortable, and extremely well stocked with almost everything you will need for a wonderful vacation on the cape. We even leave two adult bicycles and helmets for you to use (at your own risk). Bruce and I drive to the cape from Holliston between rental groups to check on the property, tend to the lawn and the gardens, and to restock as needed. The house is cleaned between all groups (no cleaning fee as long as the house, deck, and garage are left ''swept clean''). We do ask you to replace any supply, such as a spice, if you finish it. Cleaning supplies such as laundry detergent, dish washing liquid, and dishwasher detergent are supplied. We leave a start up supply of paper products and do ask that you replace them.

We hope that you decide to rent our house. Just pack up your clothes, bed linens, towels, and food and head to the cape to enjoy a week (or two) at the ''House on Holly''.

What is special about this property?
This 4-bedroom house is very comfortable and perfectly accommodates 8 people. There are two bedrooms and a full bathroom on each floor plus an additional half bathroom downstairs. The set up is perfect for two families or an extended family. The maximum occupancy is 8, including all children. Our house is centrally located on the Cape so that you can get anywhere on Cape Cod in 45 minutes or less. Provincetown is only a 35 minute drive, Hyannis is a 25 minute drive. Walk to Nickerson State park, in 15 minutes by going out our backyard and down a dirt road. Swim and fish in the park (fishing license is needed).
Our house is extremely well stocked house: 2 adult bicycles with helmets, 2 beach carts, at least 8 beach chairs, 3 beach umbrellas, many beach toys, many coolers, 4 fold out chairs in bags to bring to ball games, chef's kitchen stocked with everything you will need, double wall oven, new electric cook top, microwave, hot air popcorn maker, spices, sugar, flour, baking powder and soda, vanilla, cooking oil, vinegar, condiments, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, aluminum foil, plastic bags, shampoo, foosball table in the unfinished basement, 5 energy efficient air conditioners, over sized washer and dryer, 2 ceiling fans, 5 flat screen TV's, many new DVD's, comfortable seating for 9 in living room, children's chairs, toys, books, good reading lamps in every room, and bird seed for feeders. Unfortunately the fireplace is not functional.

What is special about your town?
Brewster is a wonderful town!: Our house is located in the back of the upscale Robinwood neighborhood in Brewster, Massachusetts. Our backyard has lovely gardens and is very private. There is a very small pond in our neighborhood just a few minute walk from the house if you enjoy freshwater swimming. A larger pond, Flax Pond, is a quiet 15-20 minute walk from the house (through the woods behind our backyard you can access a dirt road that goes into the back of Nickerson State Park). We are a 5 minute drive to beautiful bayside beaches and ten minute (or less) drive to ocean beaches including Nauset beach. Brewster has great restaurants, beautiful parks, a bike path, a very well stocked library (everyone is welcome to take out books and movies), live theater, and many fine shops.

If you love the beach, you'll love Brewster! Five of the most picturesque beaches on Cape Cod Bay are in Brewster - Crosby Landing, Ellis Landing, Breakwater Beach, Robbins Hill Beach, and Paines Creek Beach.
