We had a great week at this house! Among its wonderful features: a very short walk to a bay beach (Campground - can launch a kayak from the beach) and easy drives to several ocean beaches (Marconi, Nauset Light, Coast Guard), very nice yard for playing, wonderful screened-in porch, good deck with a new gas grill for making dinner or close proximity to takeout (Red Barn Pizza, Arnold's - skip the lines!), close to the bike trail, lots of good board games for the occasional rainy day. The house was clean when we arrived and very well-equipped. The layout of the house is convenient and provides privacy for more than one couple/family sharing the house. The only drawback: kitchen is a bit small - hard for the group to "hang out" while preparing dinner.
Something to know: Though the owner communicates directly with you about the initial reservation and personally followed up to see how the week was, the contract and payment is actually handled through a realtor. There is a $100 "non refundable rental fee" in addition to the advertised rental cost. You will have to pick up and drop off the keys at the realty office in Orleans, still adhering to the 3 pm check-in and 10 am check-out times.
Thank you for your great review!! We’re happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay & appreciated everything the house has to offer. We could not change the size of the kitchen, so that’s why we built the screened room on the deck to “hang out” together when you’re not cooking. Since we live off Cape, we felt that using a Realtor to be available to address any issues or problems you might have was the best choice we could offer our renters. Unfortunately, we are all subject to their fee structure.
