This place was perfect for a family vacation. There aren't many places where you can get 3 king beds plus more! We had an excellent time with the entire family. We loved being so close to the beach and great pond. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again in the future.

Great stay for friends and family

We rented this home for three weeks during the height of the summer, the first three weeks of August (2017). Our vacation was fantastic, and the house was wonderful. We had older kids and adults so the location was perfect...easy access to the bike path, a short walk to a beautiful pond, or a longer walk or five minute bike ride to the bay beach were all done multiple times. You can also bike to ocean beaches or get a town sticker if you want to drive and leave your car.
The house is close to the Orleans rotary, or you can avoid Route 6 and pick up stuff at the Eastham Superette by taking backroads. Just across Route 6 is the Saltmarsh visitor center and Coast Guard beach, and Provincetown is 30-40 minutes unless there is major traffic. You can also bring your tennis racket as there is a community court a short walk away.
The best parts of the house are the large entertaining areas...outdoor deck with two large tables or living room if it is hot or buggy outside. We mostly did grilling and had several large parties for dinner, with overnight guests preferring to use the outdoor shower which was especially fun, even in the light rain (although your towel gets damp!)
If you have lots of cars, pull some up near the basketball court and park cars in the driveway close to the wall to leave as much room as possible when backing out. The driveway can get narrow, so make sure guests are warned about the lights on the side, the utility boxes at the end of the driveway, and the traffic in the development when backing out.
The flowers off the deck are lovely, with lots of bird activity in the back yard at all times, including the occasional hawk or coyote. Don't miss a visit to the Audubon sanctuary, a close drive to Wellfleet (all back roads if necessary), for their nature walks and boat rides out of Orleans. The Wellfleet Drive-in and flea market are also great activities for a change of pace from the beach.
We had one problem with an old dishwasher which decided to break down in the middle of our stay. The landlord was very responsive including multiple visits by her handyman, which eventually resulted in a new dishwasher.
We would recommend this house for any large family group or those planning on having day visitors and want to host a party. We found the house very well provisioned. The only criticism we heard from one relative was that there was not enough sports channels on TV. While having some top cable channels might have been nice, it was probably better to have the TV mostly off when on this type of vacation! Go for a walk or a bike ride instead of being glued to the TV.
We would stay here again if we decide to return to the Cape next year.

10/10/2018
Moving to the Cape in 1979 to manage and operate a cottage colony, I achieved my Junior High school commitment; ''Someday, I'm going to live here.'' However, I was overwhelmed with the workload, particulalry while raising 5 children aged 3 to 13. After 5 years, the business was sold and I pursued my college degree which involved 7 years at the Cape Cod Community College to earn an Associates degree, then commuting off-Cape for 3 years to earn a Bachelor's degree as a Psychology major and then 3 years to earn an MBA. After a 22 year career in the human services field, I retired in 2016.

During the past 19 summers, this house has been rented to many wonderful families, several of whom return each year. Knowing that they enjoy their visit to the Cape and my property is very satisfying.


What is special about this property?
Location, location, location! This property has privacy and amenities galore! First, there is the huge backyard providing entertainment for all ages; the little ones will love the swing set, older children (and adults) the badminton, croquet or basketball hoop. The best, however, is the expansive deck. Sitting there in the early morning while sipping your coffee, you'll enjoy the chirps of a myriad of bird varities. There is no street noise!! And later in the day, relaxing with a cocktail as the sunsets - fabulous.

This house is located in an upscale private neighborhood. Most houses are occupied by year round homeowners so there's no need to worry about them making too much noise.

The house itself is well maintained and upgraded annually. This year, the studio was the focus. There is a new ''oak'' floor which upgraded the outdated commercial carpet and linoleum. The bathroom boosts a pedestal sink, newly painted walls and trimmed shower.

The outside shower, however, is the treasure here. It is oversized, private and the place to enjoy your after the beach experience. With both hot and cold water you'll love the owner supplied products that are non-toxic and safe for the environment. We are, afterall on a septic system in Eastham.





What is special about your town?
Eastham is the best kept secret of Cape Cod. Still unspoiled with development, it is 3 miles wide from bayside to oceanside and there are ponds dotting the land in between. The bike path runs right through the middle so you're never far from enjoying a nice walk or bike ride (there are bikes and helmets for you to use at the house).

Monday nights, at Windmill Green, you can enjoy a free concert with great local talents. Should you have a rainy day (hope not) the NEW state of the art library is amazing. Stop for a visit - even if the sun is shining.

The National Seashore Visitor's Center is in Eastham!!! There are several attractions there, one not to miss is how the Cape was formed. A definite must from there is the walk out to Coast Guard Beach. A lovely paved path makes this an enjoyable stoll or bike ride even.

Fort Hill has two natural wonders; the outer most portion has benches to enjoy the ocean or the superb walk through the marsh with a boardwalk (spring of 2017 renovation). Lots of natural wildlife and quietness.

Eastham has the oldest windmill on Cape Cod! If you can return in September (8-10th), celebrate the 40th annual Eastham Windmill Weekend event. All free! includes a Friday night talent show, Saturday sandart at First Encounter Beach, Windmill Green performances and a food truck with a beer garden on Saturday night. The theme this year is ''Sands of Time'' and the parade on Sunday will indicate just how creative the local businesses are.
