Description

Description

Park in the driveway that can accommodate 4 vehicles, and leave your flipflops on the fully furnished screened-in porch of the Boatshack. From there, enter the well appointed kitchen complete with gadgets, appliances, mixing bowls, utensils and spices you need to feed the clan. A stainless steel refrigerator/freezer with ice maker and a new Bosch dishwasher are at the ready.

Step down into the large sunken family room and get comfortable on the luxurious white sectional sofa or reclining easy chair to watch movies or binge your favorite shows on the 52'' flat screen TV with Roku Hulu streaming service. Walk up the staircase to an open loft overlooking the family room and a large bedroom with 2 twin beds plus 2 twin-size trundle pullouts to sleep 4 comfortably. The large desk in the loft is the perfect set up for the remote worker. Wi-Fi is accessible throughout the house via the fast Xfinity Blast Internet service .

The 1st floor master bedroom has a private bathroom with sink, toilet and shower. The master also has a wall mounted flat screen TV with Roku Hulu streaming service. A linen closet is stocked with all the clean bath towels and beach towels your party will need.

The second bedroom on main floor has a Queen-size bed, two windows facing the back yard and a large closet for your suitcases and clothing.

Every bed has freshly cleaned linens on the end of the bed to assure each guest a clean and comfortable stay.

A large top loading washer and front loading dryer are in the basement along with a fun ping pong table tennis setup for the evening tournaments. If basketball is your thing, you can shoot hoops in the large driveway. The basketball is in the porch alongside beach toys for the little ones.

From the Family Room or screened in porch 2 steps down to the back deck with umbrella, table and chairs to seat 6, with an additional table and chairs on the patio to seat 2 more. Weber propane gas grill with a spare tank of gas in the shed is always ready for those summer barbecues.

Lounge in the back yard on the double swing seat, 2 single hammock seats or take a nap on the hammock. There's room for everyone.

With the light and airy interior design with beach motif, you'll unwind and relax in this lovely space.
Downtown Falmouth with its shops and restaurants will give you lots to see and do. Smitty's homemade ice cream is only 1/4 mile away and is a wonderful treat after dinner.

There is plenty to see and do in the area: take a day trip to Martha's Vineyard on the Island Queen Ferry only 2 miles away, take the family on a whale watch, or enjoy a beach day at Menauhant or Old Silver Beach. Shopping and restaurants are just minutes away in either Falmouth or Mashpee, where the famous Mashpee Common shops are located.

    We had a great time!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay in Wade and Judy's house.
    The house is extremely clean and well maintained and the kitchen is equipped with everything you could ever ask for. The setting allows for privacy, the street is quiet and it is a short drive to Falmouth center and to many beautiful Falmouth beaches and just a bit longer to Mashpee Common and South Cape beach. Wade was very quick with response to our questions and easy to get in touch and communicate with. All in all we really had a wonderful time! show more show less

    The BOATSHACK haven!

    We spent a week at Wade and Judy's "Boatshack" but it was anything BUT a boatshack. Fully equipped with the amenities for summer time fun. The beach chairs, toys and boogie boards were perfect for our many beach days at Old Silver Beach. The Island Queen Ferry was so close and perfect to sail us out to Martha's Vineyard for a day of shopping, food and swimming!!!! Great place for the seashell collector. Our kids loved that and jumping off of the pier into the clear, cool water. Woods Hole was great for learning about the ocean, grabbing a bite to eat and just relaxing to watch boats pass by. We ate in mostly but when we ventured out for a bite, we sought homeowner Wade for his opinion and he didn't disappoint. Moonakis Cafe was a delicious breakfast treat! For dinners, The Flying Bridge, Lookout Tavern and Jim's Crab Shack were satisfying. We always ended nearly every evening at Smitty's Ice Cream just down the road. An absolute must. Judy and Wade's home is a wonderful place to relax and rejuvenate from all the days' activities. Oh! And the shower outside is genius and so wonderful for kids and adults. Especially after beach days!!!!! Thank you Judy and Wade for the sweetest memories. show more show less

    Highly recommend

    We had such an amazing stay at this beautiful home and we highly recommend it. It has everything you could possibly want in a vacation home. We loved the hammocks, ping pong, phenomenal porch and beautiful deck. Our boys enjoyed playing basketball in the driveway. This home is immaculate and you can tell the owners really take pride in their home and want their renters to feel comfortable. We look forward to staying there again.

    The Cape Beach House

    This was our favorite Cape Cod summer vacation! Wade and Judy's home is the perfect spot to enjoy a family vacation.

    The house is immaculate, decorated with the perfect beach feel and offering everything you need to settle in for the week. We enjoyed the large farmer's table in the kitchen to sit and enjoy our meals prepared on the grille, or on the large patio area after a day at the beach, and also sipping our morning coffee out on the lovely screened in porch. The kids loved the loft area where they felt like they had their own space. My daughter now refers to this home as "The Cape Beach House!"

    Menhaunt beach is only a mile away. I enjoyed my morning run down a quiet street that leads right to the beach, and then using the outdoor shower to cool off.

    We absolutely loved the quiet location. It is only a short drive to Main Street for shopping and dinner. We also took a short drive to Mashpee for shopping and entertainment at The Commons, and a trip to the Cape Cod Children's Museum for my daughter. My daughter's favorite beach, Old Silver Beach, is also very close. And we cannot forget to mention Smitty's Homemade Ice Cream up the road for dessert!

    We cannot stop talking about this trip and cannot wait to return to Bob and Judy's Cape Beach House next Summer!

    Family vacation

    Wade and Judy's home on Pheasant Lane was the perfect spot for a family vacation. The house was spotless, beautifully decorated, and well equipped with everything we needed from linens to beach chairs. Being a family who likes to cook and grill we found nothing lacking in the kitchen to prepare and serve our meals.

    The grandkids thoroughly enjoyed the loft area where they could read and enjoy their electronics in their own space. The backyard provided ample room to relax on the deck, on the hammocks or play games in the yard. The outdoor shower was also a great hit.

    Pheasant Lane is in a great location close to restaurants, shopping and bike trails. Menauhant beach which is family friendly is only a mile away.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation and hope to return again soon.

    Pheasant Lane

    Upon arrival the house was exactly as pictured and described, maybe even better in person. It was spotless and there was a nice welcome basket waiting for us with all sorts of goodies.

    The house is tucked away in a nice quiet neighborhood but still close to everything- beaches, ice cream, downtown for restaurants and shopping, the ferry to MV, etc. The house has everything you need and is well organized. The beds were very comfortable and the layout was perfect for our family/party's stay.

    Wade (the owner) was so nice from the initial contact, and he responded quickly to any/all calls with questions as well. We had a great week and really enjoyed this house, and would definitely stay here again. I'd recommend this house to anyone who wants a beautiful, complete, and no fuss/easy rental.

    Wade and Judy really made this one special. Thank you again for helping to make our vacation special.

    It was a pleasure to have you stay in our home. We take great pride in providing a vacation experience that is no less than what we expected when our family would rent a vacation home. From ample kitchen supplies to a bright, clean and comfortable environment.

    Please tell your friends and come back soon!

    Great for two couples and a toddler --> terrific indoor/outdoor space!
    We stayed with another couple and their young child, and this house was great for that. We loved the backyard barbecue and well appointed kitchen. It's great if you want to shop, cook, and hang outside. We found the house very relaxing. The ACs worked beautifully and the beds were comfortable. The house was spotless. Outdoor space, ensuite master bathroom and living room furniture and decor were a selling point for us - we didn't want grandma's 1980s upholstery, so the beach motif and shabby chic style created a nice atmosphere. The owner was very responsive and understandably has a system in place to ensure responsible and courteous use of their home. A bit far from the beach so walking was not at all an option; water access really means if you bring a kayak etc. you can launch it nearby, other than that we did not feel like we were near water. Overall, we would **highly** recommend this house. Some VRBO / house rules to be aware of: we traveled from far away so the trash carry out policy was a bit inconvenient, as was making our own beds on arrival (though we lucked out because the housekeeping service "accidentally" made our beds), and it was not ideal to think about doing two hours of laundry for clean linens and towels with a checkout time of 10am - so we left the night before because of this (we do not get up early). The supplies were just enough to get through the week, but could have been a tad more generous to eliminate worry (e.g., garbage bags, paper towels, detergent). Bring your own soaps and maybe your own hand wash. That aside, we loved our stay and think this is a GEM of a place to stay.

    Wonderful Family Vacation Home
    We had one of our best family vacations ever at Wade and Judy's lovely Cape Cod home. We appreciated the special touches, like the goodies that welcomed us after a long day of driving. The house was spotless, the yard welcoming, and the outdoor shower was a big hit. The ping pong table in the basement was a fun surprise, as were the board games for rainy days. We loved getting together on the couch as a family in the evenings to watch our favorite shows, and gathering in the big kitchen to cook together. We were close enough to the beach to be able to enjoy it every day; the chairs and umbrella were especially helpful! This was a perfect home in every way. Our one and only minor suggestion: given the sophisticated 21st century lighting, a user's guide might be helpful :)

    Perfect House
    We had a wonderful week in Falmouth. The house was spotless, well stocked, near to beaches and other activities and on a quiet street, safe for little ones to walk and ride bikes. We had plenty of room for 5 adults and 3 children. The screened porch was the perfect place for the children to play and the yard was great for running around.The only thing missing from our perspective was a dust buster- would have been helpful picking up the crumbs but other than that, our stay was perfect. We would definitley rent there again!

    Very nice Falmouth vacation home
    Spacious,well maintained,nicely decorated property. The owners have outfitted the house with anything you might possibly need during your stay. Wade was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Our family really enjoyed hanging out in the screened in porch! Quiet neighborhood close to the center of town. Small beach a 5 minute drive from the house. This house had everything we needed and more!

    Judy and Wade have fondly named their summer home in East Falmouth, ''The Boatshack'' and as you enter the screened in porch, you'll see why.
    Having purchased our home in late 2013, we proceeded to renovate, update and decorate our summer home. A labor of love that included upgrades like central AC, new paint, new matresses and all new linens as well as an eye towards being green. All lighting is LED and many lights are on timers and motion sensors to assure no electricity is wasted.
    Having formerly listed on another short term rental from 2014 - 2019 we had many successful rentals with raving reviews. However, we were unhappy with the ever increasing fees and limiting rules that these online listing services imposed on both the homeowners and their guests.
    Due to Covid 19, we chose not to list our property for rent last year. This year as vaccinations are increasing, we are excited to be a part of the We Need a Vacation family.
    We take pride in our lovely home and always look to improve upon the renter's experience.


    What is special about this property?
    The Boatshack is located on a quiet street with an easement 2 doors down to Green Pond. This is not a beach, but it is a launching pad for kayaks, canoes and SUP's. With the large driveway with basketball hoop, private backyard with many different areas to relax, from the deck, patio, hammocks and reclining chaise lounges, there's a place for everybody.
    Kids love hanging out in the loft while the parents are relaxing in the comfortable and bright family room.

    So close to Smitty's Ice Cream, the usual after dinner trip to Smitty's and then a ping pong tournament in the basement top off the evenings.


    What is special about your town?
    East Falmouth is the largest town on Cape Cod with many beaches to visit. However, there are so many other interesting things to do both in town and exploring the neighboring towns.
    Downtown Falmouth has many shops and restaurants as well as town common with a Farmer's Market on Thursdays. 2 miles from our home is a ferry to Martha's Vineyard.
    Bike trails abound with the ''Shining Sea Bike Trail'' and the ''Cape Cod Canal Bike Trail'' to name a few!
    Depending upon your interests, you can find Deep Sea Fishing trips, arts and crafts, museums and local history.

    East Falmouth has given us the ability to do as much or as little as we choose within only a few miles from home. If you are adventuresome, take a ride to Provincetown and go on a whale watch.

    So much to do for everyone!
