We came for a late July/early August visit for Mom, Dad, and our five kids plus Nana, and this home really fit our needs as well as any we have experienced in Eastham. With five twin beds upstairs and two queens downstairs we had many options for sleeping arrangements and the open floor plan downstairs was great for the times we were not at the beaches and just hanging out. The house is very clean and updated, comfortable, and was so well stocked with the things you might need that it was like being at home. We also took advantage of the games and books that are available at the home during our breaks from the beach. The back deck was also very nice and we spent many mornings reading books or playing in the yard, enjoying the tire swing, fire pit, and hammock. We were even able to invite some local family over for dinner and had plenty of space for everyone to enjoy.
The location for Eastham is about the best you could ask for. On the ocean side of Route 6, and a short walk or a very short bike ride to the rail (bike) trail, Sam's Deli, and other restaurants. We made use of the bikes that were available and found that it was often easier to phone ahead our orders at Sam's or the Friendly Fisherman, or a make quick trip to Dunkin' Donuts or Nauset Ice Cream, and left the car at home which added to the vacation experience. We also took some longer bike rides to PB Boulangerie in Wellfleet for amazing French baked goods, and to Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans for treats with the kids. Nauset Light Beach is less than two miles away and several mornings I went for a run to the beach for a quick swim and back, and by bike it was even easier. Ease of access to the ocean, the businesses on Brackett Road, and the Rail Trail make this home an instant winner.
We have exclusively rented direct from owners over the past 15 years of family vacations, and Jamie was as wonderful host as you could ask for and he made the rental process simple and easy and was always responsive to the few questions we had. We happened to hit the hottest week we have ever experienced on the Cape (highs into the 90s a few days), and we had the minor inconvenience of warmer than usual bedrooms upstairs, and Jamie immediately directed me to an available window A/C unit and fans that made things much more comfortable for our stay.
I highly recommend this property—the location, amenities, and comfort are great and it is priced very competitively with other homes in the area (I personally found this home a little less expensive than other homes we have rented in the area that were not as quite nice). Add to that, the wonderful hosts, and you pretty much cannot go wrong with renting this home. We have family in Eastham, and are hoping that we will have a chance to return to this home sometime soon.
