For the past three years, we have vacationed with our kids and their kids (this year, ages 4, 2.5 & 6 months). There are nine of us and finding a large, well-appointed, comfortable beach house that doesn't break the bank has been a challenge. This year we stayed at Cape Expectations in Eastham on Cape Cod and had the BEST experience! The house is beautiful and has everything you need to "keep house" while on vacation. The bedrooms are air-conditioned and the open floor plan of the first floor keeps things cool even when it's hot outside. The owners provide a comprehensive notebook of things to do, places to eat, and, most importantly, how to get around the area (those familiar with route 6 on the Cape will appreciate the importance of avoiding it as much as possible!). The location is perfect with easy access to bay beaches and the national sea shore. And, the Cape Cod Bike Trail is right around the corner from the house! We have already reserved our week for next summer!
