Description

Welcome to Casa de Cod!

At-A-Glance:
- In-ground private pool (heated May 27 – Oct 2)
- Beaches: Long Pond (716-acre freshwater pond, 2.6 miles away), Bank Street (3.6 miles away), Red River (4.9 miles away)
- Large patio and deck, fire pit, and 5-burner gas grill
- Upper- and lower-level dual-zoned central air conditioning
- Linens included (bed sheets, comforters, bath/kitchen/hand towels).
- Off-street parking for up to three vehicles
- Sunday turnover for less traffic congestion (check-in at 3 p.m. | check-out at 10 a.m.)
- Borders Cape Cod Rail Trail, a 22-mile paved bike/walking trail extending through six Cape Cod towns.
- Sorry - no pets, no exceptions.

Casa de Cod is conveniently located a five-minute drive from Route 6 in Harwich on a safe and peaceful 7-house cul-de-sac. You will know you have arrived when you see the basketball hoop in the front yard (basketball provided).

Pulling into the driveway that accommodates up to three vehicles you will see the oversized 20x12 deck perfectly suited for dining al-fresco. The deck overlooks the heated in-ground pool, pergola, and circle fire pit. The property backs to a spacious one-acre wooded lot ensuring complete privacy of pool, patio and fire pit areas.

Once settled, take a walk to the end of the cul-de-sac to explore the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT). Hike or bike the CCRT in one direction to Hinkley's and Long Ponds. The locally owned Pleasant Lake General Store is located along the trail and offers delicious pizza, sandwiches, and ice cream. Follow the CCRT in the opposite direction and you will pass True North Riding Stables and cranberry bogs to explore Harwich Center and Brooks Park.

Main Floor:
Entering the freshly painted home you will immediately encounter the first-floor full bathroom. The bathroom features a walk-in dual shower with new shower heads. Across the hall from the first floor bath is an extremely private first-floor bedroom, the Admiral's Cabin, which is furnished with a king size bed, cordless blackout shades, and a new closet organization system.

Past the hallway is the fully equipped cottage-style kitchen. The kitchen design is extremely functional and includes a gas range, refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, high-end Keurig single-serve, 12 cup coffee maker, new dishware, new kitchen ware, and open shelf storage. The light and bright dining room is equipped with a solid pine table that accommodates up to six settings. Additionally, there are three captain-style stools for casual dining at the kitchen counter.

The family room has a new 42-inch smart tv mounted over a wood-burning fireplace, books, board games, a large plush couch, and chair-and-a-half. The first thermostat for the dual-zoned central A/C is on the wall opposite the big bay window and controls the temperature on the main level.

Second Floor:
The upstairs bathroom has a new deep-soak tub and shower combination. The Crew’s Quarters has fun nautical décor and is furnished with two twin beds, a twin-over-full bunk, a 42-inch wall-mounted smart tv, and cordless blackout shades. The Captain’s Quarters is the biggest bedroom in the house and has the second thermostat for the upper level. It is equipped with a king size bed, cordless blackout shades, and a 42-inch smart tv. Additionally, there is a private sitting area with two loveseats for those moments when the Captain needs a vacation from the vacation.

    What a great visit to Casa de Cod! We had great weather and were able to enjoy the pool everyday (although we did tear ourselves away to hit the beach a few times. . .) The house was perfect for our extended family - Ralph and Jessi thought of everything! Our kids (6 and 4) loved the selection of pool toys and books, as well as the bunk beds. We all enjoyed the proximity to the Rail Trail and the wonderful outdoor space, including the fire pit where we made s'mores. We had a great time and will be thinking about this trip for years to come. show more show less

    A wonderful vacation! We've come to the Cape for many, many years and Casa de Cod is the nicest house we have rented. [Our family of] four adults and one nine year old, and there is something here for everyone. We all love the pool and the pergola. Ralph and Jessi have thought of everything, and we felt very comfortable here. Such excellent and thoughtful hosts. We did lots of fun things in two weeks. Some of our favorites are the bike trail, kayaking on Swan River, Crosby Landing Beach, West Dennis Beach, Red Cottage for breakfast, Kreme 'N Kone for fried clams and onion rings, Three Monkeys for cocktails and sushi, Rock Harbor Grill and Cape Sea Grill for dinner, and many more! show more show less

    We had a wonderful stay at Casa de Cod! We came for our annual family trip to the Cape from CT. It's our time that all the cousins get to be together for a whole week. We absolutely loved the house, the pool, and all the amenities. Ralph and Jessi - your attention to detail for your guests' stay is amazing!
    We had a fantastic time trying new restaurants (this was our first time staying in Harwich), visiting the beach, and relaxing by the pool! We even had a fire in the firepit and made s'mores! We had such a great time and hope to be able to stay at Casa de Cod again next year! show more show less

    Beautiful home, cranking AC, centrally located with easy access to every direction. Short bike to the bike trail. Pool and patio space gave a relaxing restful atmosphere.

    A Perfect Vacation Home

    Casa de Cod is a gorgeous cape home!! The pool is heated so we swam every day! I am an AC lover and it was set to 72 in this house and it was perfect!!! This house is neat, clean, fully stocked with whatever you need (pots, pans, beach chairs, pool toys, a cooler, I could go on and on!) The bed was very comfortable, the linens were clean, there were beach towels and regular towels, pillows, blankets, etc. Top notch all the way! And the owners couldn't be nicer. They answered all our questions, they had recommendations for restaurants and activities that were wonderful, and the pool was cleaned every morning before we got up. There's a poolside sitting area, a pool side firepit, and on the deck an enourmous grill and outdoor dining table. The house is right next to the bike trail (we rented and rode the trail—it was amazing!) so if you bring bikes you can be off for the day in minutes! We were here for my son's wedding and I can tell you this part of the cape is phenomenal. Great people, lots of great fresh fish to eat, beautiful beaches and an atmosphere of beachy goodness. And did I mention how nice the owners are? There were fresh flowers, a nice note and Casa de Cod coffee mugs waiting for us upon check in!!! And they had Sunday check-in and check-out so driving home Sunday morning was a breeze (cape traffic is legendary so this was quite a perk)!!! I really felt like I was spending a week in someone's home. It was perfect! show more show less

    Great home! Great Hosts!

    We had the absolute best time at Casa de Cod! I grew up on Cape Cod and although we now live in Delaware, I like to bring my family back to the Cape to visit friends and extended family on the outer Cape.

    The Casa is in a great location where my kids could jump on the bike trails in less than a minute, near grocery stores so when we forgot to get eggs - I could just "run over and grab them", and still completely quiet and secluded - we could sit at the pool and not hear or see a neighbor.

    The Hosts are amazing! They thought of everything and every single activity we wanted to do, they had the right accessories for! Beach - they had chairs and toys for the kids, pool - they have floats and toys, Drive-In - chairs, you name it, they had a way that would "just make it better" because we were staying at their home.

    We will be back year after year! Great home, great Hosts!

    Thank you for the wonderful review! It was so nice getting to know your family this past year. You were exemplary guests and we would love to host your family again. I agree the location is awesome - close enough to all daily conveniences, yet the Casa itself is located in a very private wooded setting. We hope you will visit again in 2023!

    Perfect Cape Escape

    We had a wonderful stay at Casa de Cod. The house is beautifully situated, and stocked with everything we needed to relax and enjoy our time on the Cape. From playing in the pool to hopping around nearby towns and beaches, the house makes for a homey, comfortable, and lovely home base for a vacation on the Cape.

    Wonderful week at Casa de Cod!

    We had a wonderful week staying at Casa de Cod in Harwich. Ralph and Jessi clearly put a lot of thought into updating the house, and the outdoor space is what really makes this place fantastic.

    Just off the kitchen is an upstairs deck with dinner table and grill, and below is a lovely pool area with safety gate, shaded seating, pool, tons of pool toys, drink cooler, and a separate fire pit.

    The house itself was perfect for our two families of little kids. Parents each had a king sized room and family bathroom, and kids shared the bunk room. Kitchen is well-stocked. Ralph and Jessi also set the place up with everything you could need, down to books and boardgames for rainy days (though we lucked out on the weather)!

    The location was great—in the middle of the Cape, just footsteps off the rail trail and easy access to pond, bay, and ocean beaches. We've already recommended to several friends, and my son would move in if he could! Thank you, Ralph and Jessi!

    We just spent a wonderful week at Jessi and Ralph's Harwich home which is centrally located on the Cape.

    The house is a gem. Well kept, very clean and nicely decorated. Linens are provided which is a big plus. Beds and pillows are comfortable - another plus.

    The yard has a heated pool with wonderful privacy and plenty of places to sit in the sun or shade. It was hard to leave that area during the day.

    It's right next to the Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking, walking or getting an ice cream cone at the general store right on the trail.

    Everything you need and then some is provided for your visit. The information about the listing is 100% accurate. Jessi and Ralph are very nice people who genuinely care about their guests comfort.

    We highly recommend!!

    Wonderful Vacation at Casa de Cod!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this serene, comfortable, and immaculate Cape Cod home. We can't say enough about how wonderful, thoughtful, and accommodating our hosts were, and the property is very well-equipped and fabulous for families of all sizes.

    My husband and I enjoyed being in the first-floor king bedroom with very convenient closet organizers and beautiful privacy windows, while our other family members could enjoy the upstairs when they came — with another fabulous and comfy king bed, very hard to find in rentals. Perfect for our taller crew!

    And it has such pretty seaside decor, very artistic! The outdoor space is huge and perfect — a patio area with retractable pergola, a heated in-ground pool, a fire pit, lounges, and a nice upper deck with a large table for eating outside near the grill. Very private. Unlike some other rentals we've stayed at, the beds were made on our arrival with comfy sheets and pillows, and there were plenty of towels.

    The kitchen is very well laid out and convenient for casual meals and hanging out. And Harwich is a lovely town, we so enjoyed exploring new places to eat (shout out to the Seal Pup Cafe for super outdoor eating, a super relaxed vibe, and great food), different beaches, book stores, and. Ice cream places.

    The house is also super close to the rail trails, which we walked a lot when we were there, so peaceful and pretty for biking or walking. Overall, cannot say enough about much we enjoyed this lovely home, Casa de Cod, and all correspondence with its lovely owners. We have already recommended this home!

    We were both born and raised on Cape Cod. If you are looking for advice for specific things to do or see we can provide local recommendations. We are very laid back and can be as attentive or invisible as you wish during your stay. While this is our first year offering Casa de Cod to the public we are extremely experienced with rental properties and have been landlords for the past 13 years.

    Ralph grew up in Harwich and joined the Navy immediately after high school, where he launched and recovered aircraft on the USS CARL VINSON. Ralph currently spends winters in the Chesapeake Bay region of Maryland working construction. He lives on Cape in the summer to personally manage the Casa.

    Jessi grew up in P-Town. Her Cape roots go back to the Mayflower (they landed in Provincetown first - check out the Pilgrim Springs Trail in Truro for an easy historical hike) and the Portuguese fishing community that arrived in the mid-1800s (ask us where the locals go for the freshest seafood). After college she moved off Cape with Ralph to the Chesapeake Bay region. Every year she returns to the Cape to gift her kids with the unparalleled experience of Cape summers.

    What is special about this property?
    Casa de Cod is ideal for multigenerational families. The main level features a bedroom with king size bed and a bathroom with a large walk-in shower for guests with limited mobility. The Crew's Quarters is a great hangout for young children and teens. The Captain's Quarters is an ideal adult retreat. For the very small travelers we also have a complimentary high chair and pack 'n play for guest use.

    What we love most about Casa de Cod is that you can have a wonderful vacation and never leave the neighborhood. The pool provides entertainment for hours, the firepit offers distraction on crisp nights, the bike trail is an easy stroll away, and the basketball hoop offers another reason to get out and play. On rainy days break out the board games or read a book. Casa de Cod truly is an escape from every day life.

    What is special about your town?
    We love Harwich because of its close proximity to creature comforts, natural beauty, and wealth of activities. Shopping, recreational activities, grocery stores, and natural resources are all within a 10-minute drive. Harwich is located in the center of the Cape, making it a perfect home base for exploring the entire peninsula. It is equal distance to Plymouth as it is to P-Town (approximately 45 minutes by car). If you prefer not to drive while exploring the Cape there is public transportation provided by the Flex Bus (Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority) that picks up in Harwich and stops at every Lower and Outer Cape town along Route 6 from Harwich to P-Town.

    Harwich has it all in terms of natural beauty from beautiful beaches and kettle ponds to protected conservation land. Harwich is our favorite Cape location as a family with young children because of all the youth activities in the immediate surrounding area; bowling, museums, live theater, movie theaters, golf, mini golf, kayaking, biking, charter fishing, public parks and libraries to name a few. Baseball fans can catch a Cape Cod Baseball League game and cheer for the Harwich Mariners. Finally, if you are able to visit in the quieter shoulder season the annual Harwich Cranberry Arts & Music Festival is in September. The Cranberry Festival is a multi-day event featuring over a hundred local craft vendors, live entertainment, and fireworks.
