Fantastic Memorial Day Weekend Stay
I spent the long weekend at this newly renovated gem with close friends and family this past Memorial Day Weekend, and we had a great time. One of the best attributes of this home is the number of people it can sleep (12). Many Cape rentals I have visited or stayed can only comfortably sleep 6-7, but here we comfortably slept 12. The reason is layout of the newly renovated basement which contains extra beds and two extra- long couches as well as another living room area.
The house is a split level, and the upstairs open concept kitchen, dining room and living room combo makes this home appear even more spacious. We had 10-12 people staying throughout the long weekend and there weren’t any feelings of overcrowding or that we were "in each other’s hair" so to speak.
The kitchen/dining room connects to a slider which opens up to a large deck with a table with umbrella and chairs. There is also a great grill which didn't take up too much space on the deck. During meals we were able to serve inside or outside and the open concept in the upstairs made the preparation easy.
The location of the house is within close proximity to Mayflower Beach, which in my opinion is the best beach on the Mid-Cape. The beach is extremely clean and very large. There are bathrooms, a snack shack, and there is ample parking if you decide to drive, but the walk is only 10 minutes maximum.
The home is also very close to Chapin's restaurant which is halfway between the house and the beach. Chapin's has great food and drinks and is good for a mid-day beach break or the nighttime bar scene.
The owners of the property are local and very easy to get in touch with. There were no issues that we needed to speak to them about, but we called them the day of the departure to give the key back, they were there in minutes. All questions we had prior to our check in were immediately answered.
Overall this was a great experience. I would recommend this rental to anyone interested in staying in the Dennis, Mayflower Beach or Chapin's Beach area. A clean, homey feel with the beach around the corner made this a fun stay for my family and friends, and we are looking forward to our next stay!

We appreciate this very generous and thoughtful review. Careful consideration was taken when planning this complete renovation in the Fall of 2015: New stainless steel appliances, new lighting, new fans, ALL new furniture, bedding, flat screen TVs, decor, outside shower, handrail, gas grill, washer & dryer and hide-a-hose central vac on both levels. Every effort was thought of to make the vacation experience one of cleanliness, comfort, convenience with a coastal atmosphere.
Your mention of distance to the beach and restaurant, etc.certainly offers future vacationer's a different perspective that we take for granted. Your review alludes to the fact that we are proud owners of our beach house that have tried to think of every little detail.
A beach rental's best advertisement is the comments of past vacationer's. Kudos to you and your group for providing such welcoming comments. Again, THANK YOU and looking forward to your next visit to our beach house. Kevin & Kim
