Description

Description

Enjoy our South Harwich Cape with a beautiful view of the woods, a wildlife-filled salt marsh and the ocean. Our home is nestled in a beautifully landscaped lot, in a quiet neighborhood located right on the Chatham line just off the Red River Beach. We are only minutes from the world famous harbors in Harwichport and Chatham, and the Nantucket ferry. We are only 1.1 miles from the Cape Cod Bike Trail, and close by the shopping areas of Chatham and Harwich AND ONLY A 4 MINUTE WALK TO THE BEACH!

Our home has CENTRAL AIR CONDITIONING for dryness and comfort, and has state of the art air filters cleaning the air. The house has great cross ventilation, and the smell of ocean salt air and pine trees will immediately put you in a vacation mode.

Our rooms are light and airy, and our sun-room has an ocean view and opens onto a 425 s.f. deck which is ideal for entertaining. Relax in our hammock (great view) in our half acre wooded lot. We have a large family room with a pool table which is ideal for kids. We have an assortment of soccer balls, basketballs, boogie boards, assorted beach gear, crabbing nets (which will keep your kids occupied for hours on end) and videos for your use. We provide towels, sheets, and beach towels. This will save you packing an extra suitcase.

For those who enjoy television and movies, we just purchased a high definition, 55'' LED TV that gives you a theater style viewing experience and beyond the regular 20 channels, we also offer MAX (HBO/HBO Max) and STARZ. We also have Chromecast, for those who want to watch shows and videos directly from their laptops.

The kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and baking tools.....a gourmet Viking Professional gas oven, built-in Microwave, large handled juicer, toaster, coffee maker, platters, trays, salad spinner, garlic press, lobster pot/forks/crackers, wine glasses & bucket, sharp knives and other gourmet accouterments. There are three sauce pans (2, 4, and 6 qt stainless), two 12-inch fry pans regular stainless and a non-stick, two stockpots (8 and 12 qt stainless) a stainless colander (that you can use either as a colander or as a steamer insert on the 12 qt pot), an aluminum roasting pot, several tongs, lids, ladle and spoons and a thick plastic cutting board. Everything is restaurant grade and except for the non-stick pan, everything is stainless with a heavy clad bottom, which heats up quite nicely. For you Foodies, the brand on the stainless is Update International and the non-stick is Tramontina.

Our house is perfectly located -- four minute walk to the beach, Harwichport is four minutes by car and Chatham is twelve minutes away. Harwichport has a CVS, Dunkin Donuts, 3 Monkeys, Hot Stove Saloon, Cape Sea Grille (Zagat rated), The Port, George's Pizza, The Sundae School, Brax's Landing, Ember's Coal Fired Pizza, Harwich Port House of Pizza, Bucca's Tuscan Roadhouse, Castaways Family Restaurant, Pisces, Star Market, Bud's Mini Golf, trampolines, Batting Cages, Bumper Boats, Go-Carts, Cape Cod Rail Trail-bike path, Harwich Mariners Baseball, Allen, Saquatucket and Wychmere Harbors, & Freedom Cruise Line High-Speed Nantucket Ferry.

Please note that all linens, beach umbrella, beach chairs and towels, plus ''end-of-stay'' cleaning expense, are included in the rental price. There are no Application or Reservation fees, nor is there any Damage Protection Insurance fees. Our pricing is straight-forward and honest. The only addition to our price is the MA sales tax for vacation rentals that was put in place on January 1, 2019.

    South Harwich Cape House

    This house is in easy walking distance to Harwich beaches as well as a short drive into town. The house is clean and provided plenty of room for our family with four adults and two children. The owner, Dennis is very responsive to emails and phone inquiries. I would definitely stay here again the next time we vacation in Harwich!

    Charming house, great location

    Charming house with with a great location. We could easily walk to red river, quickly be downtown in harwich and it was just a short drive to Chatham. Dennis was very helpful and the house has everything you need. The sunroom and deck were well used all week. Would definitely stay here again.

    Great spot for a family vacation

    Dennis made the rental process easy and provided lots of info for planning our time in Harwich. Despite unseasonably cool weather, we had a great week and appreciated all the suggestions in the guidebook Dennis prepared for guests! The house is a great location that combines the calming, beautiful neighborhood with an easy walk to Red River Beach, where we started each day with beach yoga, explored the Cape and then spent afternoons reading and playing on the beach. His home is very clean and well set up for a relaxing family vacation with plenty of room to be together or hide away on the deck or the porch or the hammock. Dennis was a great host – very helpful and responsive. show more show less

    A spacious cape on the Cape

    Dennis's home was a perfect setting for our family reunion. With multiple sitting and bedrooms, an easy walk to a fabulous beach, and a great location for new and old explorers of the Cape, we were so happy we chose his home. Dennis was completely flexible when we changed our dates and my siblings were all able to enjoy nearly a week together.

    Don't miss the beach by the Chatham lighthouse and historic homes to walk around and look for seals. Fantastic!!

    Wonderful stay!

    Very clean home, as described in the listing. The 3-season room and wrap-around deck were perfect for relaxing. The home was bright enough to feel comfortable even on our 2 rainy days. Quiet street and short walk to the beach. Great location near Chatham, the CC Rail Trail, National Seashore. And Dennis certainly wins the prize for timely responses to any questions or concerns. Would love to save this as our Cape destination - a definite 2 Thumbs Up

    Awesome Home

    I came back to Massachusetts to visit some old childhood friends and to ride the Cape Cod Rail Trail. I found this property and contacted the owner. Dennis was very easy to work with and was very accommodating with our rental dates.

    His vacation home was amazing! Plenty of room for us to relax and enjoy the amenities. Easy walk to the beach and close enough to bike to the rail trail. The home was nicely appointed and clean. The beds were comfortable and the indoor and outdoor patio areas were wonderful. The home has an expansive backyard for adults and kids to enjoy. I would highly recommend this vacation home for others who would like to stay on the Cape. show more show less

    Exquisite Vacation

    Dennis's home has the irresistible combination of unique natural beauty - miles of beautiful, white-sandy beaches, five minutes walk from the beautiful cottage in a quiet neighborhood with restaurants and stores a short drive away.

    There is everything you would need or want from a vacation home, exceptionally comfortable beds, fire pit (indoor fireplace for colder nights) and everything you would need or want to cook up the freshest seafood caught just off the Cape.

    The home is immaculately clean with a very generous supply of fresh clean bed linens and towels. There is a large front and rear yard and an extended deck with plenty of room for all guests.

    We had a blissful two weeks where we really were able to explore the Cape, the Vineyard, Nantucket, Plymouth and Boston, with the many recommendations in the guest book and collapse after a long day of exploring in front of the cozy fire. The property is really dog-friendly and our Labrador made the most of long walks, swimming in the sea and dog friendly Cape Cod towns.

    I cannot recommend this property any higher, we had a magical stay and have fallen totally in love with Cape Cod and hope to be back very soon.

    Carla,

    You and your family, including your Labrador, are welcome back to our house at any time. You saw many of the sites, used the house as a central base to explore all of Cape Cod, Nantucket and the Vineyard, relaxed at the home at night and left it in wonderful shape. May your Cape memories last forever.

    Fabulous relaxing beach week

    I cannot say enough about this darling cottage and its wonderful host. The cottage is walking distance to a lovely beach, and a quick drive into lovely Chatham. The house itself feels as if you are at your own beach cottage-homey, charming, very clean, and comfortable.

    We loved hanging out in the comfy living room in the evening, baking cookies in the Viking oven, and spending our days walking our dogs on the beach. Everything you could need is a five minute drive away. />
    The host, Dennis, could not be more welcoming and helpful. Any question or need is immediately and thoughtfully answered. We will be back! show more show less

    Comfortable for the whole family

    We had a wonderful stay for Thanksgiving week! The house is in a quiet neighborhood with an easy walk to Red River Beach. Home is spacious and comfortable for the whole family. We 'Worked from Home' and Zoom School from here. The internet worked seamlessly for all of us. Dennis was a great host, very helpful and easy to contact with any questions.

    30th Anniversary Family Vacation

    What a beautiful location to celebrate our 30th Anniversary with our growing family. Perfect destination for quiet and relaxation in the spacious Cape home with close proximity to Red River Beach - walk to have fun in the sun. The deck was our favorite spot to end our days laughing, eating, drinking, and chilling. Plenty of room for eight of us ~ all adults. Looking forward to making more wonderful memories with future grandchildren.

    Note: We noticed COVID is taken seriously by most on the Cape and comply with clean home, wearing masks, social distancing, and hand hygiene which increased our comfort level to be on vacation during this time. show more show less

    Sharon & Mike V were ideal house guests who treated our home well and had a wonderful time at the beach, in Harwichport and the nearby Cape towns. The entire family, and any future grandchildren, are welcome to stay at any time. Dennis

    Through my travels, I have rented vacation properties around the world, and have culled the best ideas from each of them and tried to offer them at our property. We bought our Cape Cod home in 1987 and have been renting it since then, making many, many long-time friends in the process. For more than three decades, the house has been fully rented every single week of the summer (!) because our pricing is straightforward and fair, and it is a great value (one of our customers told us ''It is the best bargain on all of Cape Cod'').

    Our Fall rentals are becoming more numerous as people have started coming to the Cape for what many consider the Cape's best season. The weather is warmer than inland during the Fall because of the Gulf Stream moderates the air temperature; the crowds are gone and it is much easier to travel around. We get Winter rentals over the major holidays and we are starting to see more Spring get-aways from small groups wanting to do something different over three-day weekends. Ours is a year round house and has a wonderful fireplace in the living room that guests are invited to use.

    What is special about this property?
    Our home is extremely comfortable, with a wonderful deck that is has a picnic table at one end and is great for eating; and has plenty of seats for conversations in the main part of the deck. Turn on the deck lights in the evening and the conversation flows easily and there is magic in the soft Cape night air.

    We recently installed duo HVAC central air conditioning systems that not only keeps humidity low, it also includes an electronic air cleaning system that purifies the air and eliminates any dampness and or mold spores. There are separate thermostats for the ground and main floors, and a different one to control the temperature in the upstairs bedrooms.

    We removed the living room carpet and installed wide-plank Brazilian hardwood flooring throughout the living room and bought new chairs and couches for this room. The sunroom furniture has been re-stuffed and re-upholstered. The Queen mattresses in all the bedrooms are recently bought as are the linens and bedding.

    The house is well cared for throughout. You are sure that you will enjoy your stay!

    What is special about your town?
    Being midway between Harwichport and Chatham, four minutes and eleven minutes respectively, gives you the best of both towns. Further, you can easily visit Provincetown and the National Seashore park, go antiquing on Old King's Highway along Cape Cod Bay, or travel to Woods Hole and Hyannis. We are ideally located in the central part of the Cape.

    When guests arrive they find the house key on the dining room table and our personal Welcome Booklet with our recommendations of things to do and see on Cape Cod. After coming to the Cape for over 30 years, we recommend ''non-tourist trap'' activities ranging from free (where children can catch crabs & small sand eels, biking the Cape Cod bike trail, watching the fishing boats unload their catches in Chatham harbor) to those that cost money (places to eat and visit).

    Come stay at our home near Cape Cod's ''elbow'' and have access to the entire Cape!
