Description

This bright, inviting, and recently updated home is tucked away in a quiet, residential neighborhood. Centrally located on Cape Cod, Harwich is an ideal setting for a family getaway. The house was designed to enjoy with extra attention given to outdoor living with a large, private, flat (and newly seeded!) lot, large outdoor deck and beautiful bluestone patio.

Just steps to a park, playground, tennis and basketball courts, and the bike path. Walking distance to restaurants, coffee shops, an art gallery, and the library. Less than a mile to downtown Harwichport. 1.7 miles to Bank St Beach and 2 miles to Red River Beach.

Our home, Idle Way, offers 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 10, and is centrally air-conditioned. There are two bedrooms upstairs and two bedrooms on the main level. All mattresses purchased new in 2020. We have a travel crib and bed rails available to families with young children.

Bedroom configuration:
1st floor bedroom 1: queen bed
1st floor bedroom 2: (2) twin bunks
2nd floor bedroom 1: queen bed & twin bed
2nd floor bedroom 2: queen bed

One of the rooms upstairs serves dual purpose bedroom/office for those who may be working or schooling remotely. We have a desk (second desk available if needed), a monitor, and a printer to make your stay that much more productive.

The kitchen is well-equipped with a dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, blender and all the pots, pans, dishware and silverware you’ll need. All appliances purchased new in 2020. You’re also welcome to all of our pantry staples (spices, olive oil, condiments, food storage, etc.).

The home has a new Weber gas grill, central air and laundry in the basement.

Rinse off in the outdoor shower after a long day at the beach. And then relax and unwind at the patio dining set or on the new bluestone patio. Brand new all-weather loveseat and coffee tables have been purchased for the 2021 season. There is also a wicker set in the front yard.

We have a number of yard games and activities including cornhole, KanJam, ladder ball and a bounce house. Beach chairs, umbrella, tent, beach toys and sand toys are also available, if interested.

    Great time at a great beach house

    We were so happy to spend our Spring break vacation week in this beautiful house. It has a lot of amenities for indoor and outdoor fun. The house was clean, inviting, and very comfortable with plenty of space to spread out. Everything that this house offers during the summertime wasn't fully set up, but it was made all available for our use if we wanted to. My son and two of his friends who came to visit us had a great time egg-hunting in the backyard on Easter Sunday, and with all the activities/entertainment in the basement.

    Location was a plus. Easy access to the main routes (Routes 28, 6, and 39) that takes you anywhere you want to explore. Super close to the cute downtown, local beaches, a playground, bike trail, and much more.

    Greg and Stephanie were great hosts. Greg was responsive and very easy to talk to. He was available to answer questions and relaying info. Thanks Greg and Stephanie for your flexibility and the welcoming gift. And many thanks again for sharing your beautiful and relaxing house with us. We can't wait to come back.

    Holiday Stay

    Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful home. The moment we walked through the door we could feel the home's warmth and were impressed by the aesthetics of the decor as well as how spacious it was.

    There was both room to gather in common areas or find a place for some peace and quiet. We found the basement area was a perfect spot for our adult children to enjoy.

    The attention to detail did not go unnoticed. So many conveniences were provided, including a coded keypad entry, charging station, smart home features, hallway nightlights, fully equipped kitchen, ample places to sleep, cozy blankets and more. There was even a beautifully decorated Christmas tree!

    Although I am sure this would also be a wonderful summer rental, with its close proximity to beaches and outstanding outdoor spaces, if you are looking for a getaway, I would highly recommend staying here any time of year.

    We feel fortunate to have shared time with family over the holiday in this lovely home.

    Amazing!

    We had a group of 7 old friends stay here for a weekend golf tournament. The home was so spacious and in a perfect location to everything we needed in and around Harwich. The outdoor deck and patio with the lighting was absolutely incredible. We weren't able to spend a ton of time at the house and enjoying the outside areas, but we thoroughly enjoyed every second that we were there and actually wish we had more time to spend at the house because it was so great.

    The home was clean, the beds were so comfortable, and the amenities were perfect. Greg and Stephanie are amazing hosts and were super easy to work with throughout the booking process right through our stay.

    I had an issue with one of the key locks and called Greg and he walked me through the situation immediately. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your beautiful home, your fantastic hospitality, and we hope to come back next year!

    The Most Wonderful House

    We had the opportunity to stay at Idle Way for two weeks in August. This house was more than we could have asked for. It had EVERYTHING we needed as well as everything extra for two young kids. The location was perfect, on a quiet street, walk to breakfast and the park, hop right on the bike trail, and a huge backyard for the kids to play the wide variety of games that came with the house including a bounce house, cornhole, can jam, and a variety of bikes and scooters. My husband and I loved being able to work out on the trx and ride the Peloton everyday, which was such a treat for someone who doesn't own one. The four bedrooms are all a good size and there was ample space to spread out and not get in each other's way.

    We loved the personal touches as well like the reusable branded cups, the personalized door code, and the supplies and snacks that were there for us upon arrival.

    I can't say enough great things about this house and the owners. The owners are fantastic and were in constant communication before and during our stay. We already booked our two weeks for next summer :)

    Family Vacation

    We had an amazing time at Idle Way in Harwich. The house is immaculate, very well organized, clean and the decor is so inviting. The outdoor patio area is fantastic with plenty of room and amenities for the entire family to enjoy. Close to Harwich beaches and downtown Harwichport, this house has it all!

    Cape Escape was found in this beautiful home

    My family and friends had the pleasure spending a week in this large home that had been recently updated in 2020/2021.

    When I rent a vacation home we want an outstanding location and this house has it! Cape Cod Bike Path is crazy close, all the Beaches/Restaurant/Shops in Harwichport less than 1.5 Miles away, and a great launching spot to our favorite places in Chatham, Orleans and Dennis.

    When we got back to this home, we were able to unwind and relax in 4 good sized bedrooms (two on the first floor and two on the second), 2 Full bathrooms and a private large deck in the backyard to enjoy lunch or dinner. When the sun sets, we threw wood in the Yukon Solo Stove and enjoyed our drinks and smores almost every night.

    The owners Greg & Stephanie where great to deal with throughout the entire process and we we very surprised how well this home accommodated our needs as renters. This is a smart home and we appreciated all the power stations throughout the home! There is also a Peloton Bike where the owners have created a Guest Account for use during your stay! The list goes on and on with Lawn Games, Hammocks, Outdoor Shower, Lights which turn on with your voice, etc...

    Thanks again Greg & Stephanie for sharing your home with us.

    Amazing Stay!

    I have no words to describe how amazing of a stay we had!! I already was blown out of the water from the clear communication from the owners, to every resource possible to assist with our stay, then when we arrived it blew me out of the water even more! This home offered everything possible, especially for those with kiddos. Everyone in our group repeatedly stated how amazing the stay was and how we can't wait to return next year!

    Don't pass this one up if it's on your list of possible vacation rentals! Go relax at "Idle way" with your family/friends, you won't regret it! show more show less

    Great getaway

    We very much enjoyed our stay at Idle Way. We instantly felt at home. The house is very well stocked with everything you need.

    The amazing backyard was perfect to sit and relax after a day full of biking and beach. Highly recommend.

    Lovely Wonderful Stay

    We spent Christmas time and the house was absolutely perfect! Our kids enjoyed the yard and the book corner while we enjoyed the quiet of Cape Cod and cooking meals in the kitchen for the holidays! Highly recommend and will be back!

    Our family had a wonderful week down on the Cape and we were lucky to stay at this cute and spacious house! It was clean, beautifully updated and had everything we needed to be comfortable. The living room was very nice, the couches comfortable, and there was a good sized dining room table off the kitchen to eat at. The kitchen was very functional and well stocked. The back deck, outdoor shower and grill (with extra propane tanks) were all brand new and fantastic and the central AC made the house very comfortable. We stayed in the first floor bedroom and our three boys shared the bunk bed room right across the hall. Upstairs is pretty spacious and private with two bedrooms and a nice bathroom. It is great for families that want to split the house together but also have a little space apart while under the same roof. We plan on coming back in the Summer of 2021! show more show less

    We're life long Cape Cod vacationers turned homeowners in summer 2020. It has long been a dream of ours to buy a small piece of our ''happy place'' and make it our own. We've done just that! We updated almost every surface of this house and furnished it with a focus on function and aesthetics.

    What is special about this property?
    For us, the Cape represents a gathering place, memories in the making and time spent with family and friends. The house comfortably sleeps 10 with gatherings spaces both indoors and out. And not because you're on vacation doesn't mean you still can't work out, we have a peloton bike with tons of options from biking, cardio, strength and yoga in addition to free weights! We set out to be family friendly so bring the kids along! We have a travel crib, a high chair, toys, books and puzzles. We have floaties, bikes and yard games ... just to name a few!

    What is special about your town?
    Harwich is centrally located mid-Cape. Our home is walking distance to a park, tennis and basketball courts and the bike path. We're 1.7 miles to Bank St beach and just over 2.2 miles to Red River beach.

    There's no shortage of scenic landscapes; 11 miles of shoreline along Nantucket Sound and Pleasant Bay, 4 harbors, cranberry bogs, freshwater ponds and reservoirs, river corridors and 448 acres of conservation land to explore.

    While you are here, check out the local artisan galleries and shops or enjoy a day at the spa. Visit one of Harwich's historical landmarks or catch a play at a local theatre. There are always events and activities happening in Harwich.

    Harwich offers a relaxed lifestyle with delicious dining and great shopping. It's a great place to visit, though we think it's an even better place to live!
