The view from this condo is perfect. On more than one occasion, people drove into the driveway only to get out of the car, snap some pictures of the beach/water, and then drive away. Even the pizza delivery guy asked if it was OK that he snapped a few pictures after he delivered the food. If you're in to wind surfing or kite boarding, this is the place to stay. Locals said that Kalmus Beach is the place to be for those activities, and after being there for a couple of windy days, I can certainly see why.
The location is also excellent. You're about a 15 minute walk from Main Street, where you will find a ton of restaurants and shops, but the condo itself is reasonably secluded without much traffic. We planned on mostly having a lazy beach vacation, so we decided against renting a car. If that's your plan, be aware that there is not much available in terms of buses, and cabs are pretty much only there when a new bus arrives at the transportation center or the ferry arrives at the harbor. There are bike and car rentals available within easy walking distance from the condo, if you did want to take a day trip somewhere.
The condo will sleep 4 if you're using the pull out sofa bed, but I wouldn't recommend more than two staying here unless you all don't mind being really cozy. This condo is the perfect size for two.
Alice was extremely pleasant and easy to work with, and was very prompt with responses. When we arrived, the condo was clean with the exception of no clean sheets or towels. One phone call to Alice, and she had someone there within an hour to pick up the laundry, and we had it back within two hours after that. The woman who picked up the linens even ended up giving us a ride to the store to pick up a few supplies. I would certainly rent from Alice again!
I'm so glad you loved the location and spectacular views from the deck. Thank you for mentioning the bus and cab service in Hyannis. The free Hyannis Trolley Service, which stops at Kalmus Beach, does not run after Labor Day. I have very few guests that come without a car so I overlooked info about cabs. After doing some research and making a few calls there are around 9 different cab companies in Hyannis, some of which offer service, 24 hrs. a day, 7 days a week. You're right that the condo does sleep 4 if you are using the pullout couch in the living room and the double bed in the bedroom. I have so many families of 4 who enjoy their stay and come back year after year. I am happy that you and your girlfriend found the condo a perfect size for 2. Just recently I had a couple renew their vows on the deck. Thank you so much for your lovely review and I hope you visit us again!
