We had the pleasure of renting this very accommodating home for a Thanksgiving visit to see local family who live in Eastham. This clean and well-appointed house very comfortably fit our family of seven, and has a great location in Eastham, just a few houses down from the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Being an off season visit, we did not spend too much time on the beaches, but we definitely will consider this home for our next summer visit. Not only is the ocean close, at just over a mile away, but some of our favorite Eastham stops for eats (Mac's seafood, Sam's Deli, Hole-in-One Donuts) are a very easy short bike ride away. This is also a really short drive to the Wellfleet drive-in which we love in the summer, as well as the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary (Mass. Audubon) which we have enjoyed in the past.
The house looks small from the outside, but as several commenters have noted, it really is a spacious cape cod and well laid out. It is nicely renovated and very clean, and my brother-in-law, again a local Eastham resident, was impressed with the size and condition of the home.
Outside there is access to the shed, a great place to store bikes if you bring them (or rent from Idle Times which is what we usually do) and the outdoor shower and deck outside are really nice (just wish we were here in the summer to enjoy them!). Inside, not only is the house clean, but well-organized, and was well-stocked with paper products, dish and laundry detergent, dishes, pots and pans for cooking, etc. There seemed to be a place for everything, and everything in its place, so it was easy to settle in quickly. There were a number of board games which got a lot of use and the ping pong table in the basement was a fun diversion for the kids as well.
You pretty much can't go wrong with this home. The owners are terrific, the rates are reasonable, and the location is very convenient. We have been renting the same summer home in Eastham for years, but will be considering making a switch to this home in the years to come.
Most importantly, Cyndi was a wonderful owner to work with. She made the entire rental process from beginning to end very easy. I had a few questions along the way and she was always responsive and accommodating. In my many years of renting direct from owners, I have met some wonderful owners, and my experience with Cyndi was among the best, and helped us really have a Happy Thanksgiving in Eastham!
