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 3-4 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. We also have Chromecast, for those who want to watch shows and videos directly from their laptops.

The gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with cooking and baking tools.....Cook top & 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, Bonatt's Bakery, Hot Stove Saloon, Cape Sea Grille (Zagat rated), The Port, The Mason Jar, George's Pizza, The Sundae School, George's Fish Market, Star Market, Harwichport Golf, trampolines, Batting Cages, Bumper Boats, Go-Carts, Cape Cod Rail Trail-bike path, Harwich Mariners Baseball, Allen & Saquatucket 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.

A Great Experience

This charming Cape Cod home is centrally located in a quiet neighborhood. Its proximity to the beach is a pleasant walk, or short drive. The beach is beautiful, the waters warm, and is perfect for young and old, with easy access to restrooms and a snack truck. First and foremost, this is a wonderful value, yet beautifully appointed property! Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and we're looking forward to returning as an annual family reunion location. Dennis is an incredible resource for the local activities and businesses, with excellent recommendations for your family's stay. Dennis was beyond helpful, cheerfully responding to any inquiries that we may have had, before, during, and after our stay. We could not have been happier with this experience! show more show less

Still the best place to relax!

Always nice to update a previous review! This remains our favorite place to relax at the Cape. The house continues to be updated by the owner and is a place we feel "at home" within minutes of arrival. The location is central and convenient to many locations on the Cape. The neighborhood is quiet and only a few minutes stroll to the Red River Beach where we take our dog every day we're there.

The kitchen is the perfect place to cook for just a couple people, or a small crowd. The owner is tremendous to work with and although we've never met in person, we are treated like family. I look forward to coming here each year, and count the days until I return! ( I wish I could give more stars than the ones provided, but you'll just have to take my word for it until YOU visit.) show more show less

Outstanding!!!

I wrote a thank you to Dennis for allowing us the opportunity to rent his home … thought I'd share in my review as this sums up our vacation in this home … “My family had a great time in your beautiful home with an awesome location and lots of space for us!”

This home is on a quiet side street. Red River Beach is a short stroll and the beach provides a convenient hot dog truck for lunch, daily visits from the ice cream man (which was a highlight for our grandson) and clean restrooms. It’s a great area for walking and/or running. Having the beach pass made it real easy to bring all the chairs, umbrellas, coolers, etc for a full day of fun.

We thoroughly enjoyed the very large deck with picnic table and it’s great ambience in the evening with twinkling lights for relaxing. The home provides all the conveniences of home plus more.

I would be remiss if I did not mention the fact that Dennis was a pleasure to rent from. He has thought of everything for this home. Dennis made the process easy and was quick to respond to emails.

This house is a hidden gem! The location is ideal. The house is cared for and just so clean. We did not want for anything. The owner is extremely responsive and just so welcoming. We have already booked the house for next year. There is just so much attention to detail. The deck was our absolute favorite!

This home is lovely. It is clean, well furnished, well stocked with bedding, towels, kitchen and dining needs, and nature just out the door. A short walk brings you to a beautiful beach. Dennis was very easy to work with and was very accommodating with my rental needs. I would recommend Dennis and his home to anyone looking for a comfortable, quiet neighborhood near the beach.

Easy Booking; Great Home

Great house that is within walking distance to the beach, but still offers a private vacation retreat. The big L-shaped deck was perfect for hosting dinner, drinks, and general relaxation.

Linens & beach towels/chairs were provided which made life easier. Overall it was a no hassle house.

Great location, great experience, we would definitely return.

9 years!

Our family of 5 has rented this house for a week (or more) each summer for 9 years. We love the location between Harwich and Chatham. It is walking distance to a wonderful beach. The house is well maintained and provides a nice home base to our Cape Cod activities. We also appreciate the ease of communication with the owner.

Close to beach, a great house and great host

We stayed at this cottage for the first time this summer. It’s a short walk to Red River Beach. Dennis is a very good host. Easy to get a hold of, very responsive.

The cottage is great. It’s clean, well kept, big rooms, great deck, great sun room.
Nice basement with small pool table. The best outside shower I've seen and ..... Everything works!

One thing to consider is there is not a lot of outdoor area for young kids to play in. There’s a small front yard and a big back yard, but it's down a hill and woodsie. However the street is quiet and the beach is close

I would recommend this cottage to friends and hope we can stay there again.

Great Escape

From the initial conversation with Dennis until our time ran out, this experience in the Cape Cod Home with Ocean View was easy, leisure-filled and the way a vacation should be! The space was serene and self contained, but accessible to many Cape treasures that supplement the offering. Tons of nature, beauty, light, sounds. Personal favorites - waking up to the sun and sounds of nature and spending seven days with the option to shower outdoors. Cooked, worked from the awesome deck, again with the sun, sounds and ocean view, met the neighbors, and all in - had an amazing time. Thank you Dennis and team for sharing your property and being a great host! show more show less

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 two 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 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, a beach parking pass, 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!
