Michael was an absolutely delightful owner to rent our first vacation in Chatham, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. The neighborhood is a beautiful, well maintained, private family-like residence, and is a very quiet spot and couldn't ask for a better place. The house is very close to the beach which was great! It was also very clean everywhere, and also has a great yard. We will definitely be staying again on our next visit to the Antique Chatham Farmhouse!

Hi,

Just want to thank you for a wonderful vacation. We really did enjoy our time and it was a great treat to be with my sisters!

We have been discussing our plans for next year and wonder if you would be interested in renting to us again, with the whole month of August on the Cape. Is that something you would be interested in doing?

Many thanks again for a magical time!

Kind regards,

Nancy

As advertised!!

The house was clean and orderly when we arrived. We LOVED the patio with the two grills. We spent every evening enjoying the beautiful weather, eating the great Cape Cod seafood, having a few drinks, and making memories! It is just a short walk down the street to the beach and just a short drive to Chatham for shopping and some great restaurants. The location is ideal, we took a 45 minute ride to Provincetown for whale watching and shopping. There is an awesome restaurant at the corner of the street (Pisces). I plan on returning and staying here again. You won't be disappointed. I would highly recommend the house to my friends and family. show more show less

Hi Michael,

We found the house to be lovely and I can not think of a single convenience that was missing - our vacation stay was very pleasant. My family especially enjoyed the multiple tables outdoor and tons of seating. The hammock was also a big hit.

Thank you for sharing your lovely home. We thoroughly enjoyed our time here.

Hi Michael,

We sadly left the house Saturday morning after a WONDERFUL time with family. We had a great vacation! We truly did have a fantastic time away, and really enjoyed being back at your house. Things that we like most are: the hammock, the patio and table, the outdoor shower, 2 separate living rooms, the privacy of the property, the wall of books, magazines, games, etc..

Thank you again for renting to us. My parents vacationed in Cape Cod before they had kids. Then they brought their 3 kids to the Cape a few times. Now they get to see their kids, their kids' spouses, and their grandchildren enjoying the same town they learned to love as newlyweds. We were so much looking forward to the week, were thrilled to all arrive at the house, and had a wonderful time together. We do hope it won't be too long before we can come back!

Michael,

Thank you for the use of your Chatham home for our family celebration of our 50th anniversary. Everything about the house was charming and met our needs, and keep Mr. Mikita as your plumber. What a great guy! We are all back in Ohio and our daily routine. Thanks again.

Michael,

We've had another great week. Our kids and grand-kids love it here. The hot water thing was just a minor speed bump. Whether there was hot water or not, your mechanics were all over it. Sometimes things happen! All part of the adventure. We (also had) a great fishing trip.

Take care.

Michael made us feel very welcome. The home was exactly as described - comfortable and convenient. He even put out a high chair for our baby! We particularly loved using the outdoor amenities on the yard, such as the grill, hammock, badminton net, and ping pong table....Would highly recommend this home for a family stay.

This home was perfect for our group travel. We traveled with 10 people, and fit comfortably here! We loved having a small beach nearby (about a quarter mile away), and being situated in a quiet residential neighborhood. It really felt like home for the four nights we were there! The hammock and the nearby beach were my favorite.

This is not the place to stay if you want to have loud parties, but if you are looking for a "home away from home," this is it. The host, Michael, was great. He answered our requests very quickly, and called during the trip to make sure everything was okay.

We had a great time! Thank you!
