Fantastic Thanksgiving Stay
Our family had a Thanksgiving reunion this year in this lovely house and it was fantastic. There is plenty of room for everyone. There is a full kitchen with everything you need in it, it was impressive. I was surprised how private the house felt, while you are just a walking distance away from town. The cottage was also quite nice with beautiful view of the Marina. Since it was November, the weather was cold so we didn't get to hang out in the backyard, but the house has a big backyard for spring/summer/fall visits. Marian is very responsive and easily reachable, she checked in a few times before our visit to make sure the house had everything we needed. There were more than enough sheets, bedding, pillows and blankets, we were very comfortable in the middle of the winter on one of the coldest Thanksgiving's of the past 30 years. Thank you for sharing your house with us, we hope to come back in the future.

Loved the house. Kitchen all remodeled. Great location. Air conditioning worked well.
Lots of sleeping space and rooms were nice. Place was clean. Our only concern was moisture in basement and musty smell in basement and cottage by dock. Enough towels, but missing kitchen towels and dish cloths. Marian the owner was very accommodating and kept in communication with us throughout our stay. Would return.

Wonderful home at a great location.
This home was great for our family! Very spacious and wonderfully decorated. The kitchen was renovated and had just about everything needed to make our dinners. We enjoyed eating outside in the private backyard. The cottage was perfect for a friend who came to visit for a night. We walked into town and to the harbor where we enjoyed a harbor cruise and dinner at the black cat tavern. We had a couple of kayaks delivered from rideaway kayaks and also rented bikes from the bike zone. We used them to get to the closest beaches. If you decide to drive and park at one of the many beaches you will need a beach pass. Daily ones for $20 can be obtained from the beach itself but a weekly pass good at multiple beaches can be purchased for $70 at the town rec center.

Thank you Marian for sharing your lovely home with us so we could enjoy the Cape!

What a delightful place!
We had a great time and would surely come back to this house if we did not choose a different location every summer. The owner was very nice and easy to communicate with. We are so glad we picked this house for our Hyannis/Cape Cod vacation.

Just a terrific property!
We visited for 5 days at Thanksgiving and had a great time with our family. The main house is lovely and spacious, and it has been beautifully renovated. It has a great yard for kids to play. And you can walk down to the water, where the separate cottage is located, and out on your very own dock. The phrase "waterfront compound" is quite appropriate, and you can have lots of fun just exploring the property. The owners are very friendly and welcoming folks who provided lots of helpful notes and guidance. We were very pleased with our decision to rent this property.

Simply Fantastic, Everything We Hoped For
Marian & Gleed's lovely Hyannis home was simply perfect for our family getaway. We had 12 people staying at the house including our 4 kids (29,27,20, &18); old friends and my sister and brother-in-law. The house was so spacious we never felt crowded and the kitchen was large enough for everyone to congregate. We had bikes delivered from Bike Zone, kayaks delivered from RideAway Kayak and rented a 21 foot pontoon one day from All Cape Boat rentals (all great places and awesome customer service!). Because of all this and the great location everyone could do their own thing or we could all hang together. Easy day trip to Nantucket and to Provincetown. We walked into town for shopping and ice cream and enjoyed the bar/restaurant right next door.

The beds were super comfy, linens soft and the kitchen was well stocked. Appliances (including a wine refrig we put to good use) were all new and well-maintained.

One of the highlights of the trip was sitting on "our" dock and watching the awesome fireworks on July 4th.

Thank you Marian and Gleed for let us "borrow" your little bit of paradise for a week. We hope to return again soon!!!

Spacious Cape Cod home, bonus Cottage and dock, beautiful back yard. And great location!
We had a good experience. The location was close to two beaches, ferry service to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard and you could walk into town. We loved the park nearby and attended two concerts there. There is also a good selection of restaurants within walking distance. We had plenty of space for our family reunion of 12. The beds were comfortable. There is some road noise in the front downstairs bedroom. The back yard was great for our two youngest grandsons, ages 2 and 4 to play in. Our 18 year old grandson enjoyed sleeping in the cottage and the opportunity of practicing his trumpet privately ?? The kitchen was great and well stocked. We enjoyed some quality time with some of your games upstairs as well. Thank you for providing a lovely home for memory making!

Comfortable, Clean Accommodations
Stayed with a large group in this home. The home was clean and well maintained. Kitchen is lovely. View is lovely. Proximity to a small beach and a short walk into Hyannis town was ideal. Would stay again in a heartbeat.

West Coast family reunion
Our family rented this large 5 bedroom home and the cottage for our family reunion. It was perfect! Beautifully furnished, beach towels and chairs, kitchen complete for any cooking project and the cottage at the waters edge was very sweet and private. It was within walking distance of downtown so we did not have to coordinate everyone's whims. Walk to ferries for those who wanted to visit Nantucket. The lease agreement got us into the gorgeous beaches for free. Our own dock! Thank goodness for the air conditioning in both house and cottage.

Perfect vacation home for a large family
We recently got back from a long weekend at Marian's home. It was the perfect home for our large family. We had 10 people staying at the house and an additional 15 family members staying near-by. This house quickly became the hang out spot that nobody wanted to leave. It is spacious and has numerous gathering areas that allowed all of us to be together without feeling cramped. The house is beautifully decorated. The kitchen is well-equipped with all the essentials making cooking easy. The house is quite but within walking distance to many excellent restaurants and the ferries. The kids loved walking down to the private dock to see the boats coming in and out of the harbor and to feed the geese. We had an issue with the internet when we first arrived and Marian quick to respond to our email and remedied the situation. We would highly recommend this home.

Gracious Home in superb location gave comfortable accommodations for three generations...
We chose this home for its location close to downtown to appease the younger set ( teenagers and pre-teens) and its waterfront and secluded lot. We searched for months for something to please four different parties sharing the house for a family reunion....this gem became a new listing and we snapped it up.

The house has just been redone and there is not a detail overlooked. The kitchen was beautiful and all sitting and bedroom areas in the home comfortable and graciously appointed with lovely antiques. You do not ever feel you are in a vacation rental. Every person in our group was comfortably set up in their bedroom; the great room area with fireplace was roomy enough for all to be together and there was ample room for many cooks to help with meals. We thoroughly enjoyed the dock on the premises. The proximity to Ocean Street boat tours and ferries to the islands was a bonus...and the many nice beaches within just a few minutes drive. I am really hoping my family will come to this home again next year! I am back home and missing it! We all loved it...

Beautiful house in a perfect location
I can't say enough good things about Marian & Gleed's home and my interaction with them. They were so kind, thoughtful and well-equipped to handle all of my questions and comments. The home is absolutely beautiful, in the PERFECT location to get to everything in Hyannis and beyond. The backyard is ideal for group dining and we were able to watch the 4th of July fireworks right on the private dock. Plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably during our stay. Thanks again for your hospitality and allowing us to stay in your home!

Wonderful family vacation home!
We just returned from a week at Marian's house and could not have had a better time! The compound is a gem in Hyannis Harbor! We had several generations including grandparents and grandchildren, and between the huge main house and the cottage we had plenty of space for everyone. The house and cottage are both beautifully renovated with big, airy light-filled spaces where everyone can gather. Plenty of bedrooms and private bathrooms for everyone - of upmost importance when several families are together. The yard overlooking Hyannis Harbor is just perfect for the little ones to play...and of course run to look every time the nearby ferries toot their horns when they come in or leave the harbor. The trees provide privacy from the next door hotel and restaurant, and it is great having the Dockside restaurant right next door for takeout and eat in on their lovely deck. Within walking distance is a wonderful seaside playground, the ferries to Nantucket and MV, the Hyannis Maritime Museum, and downtown Hyannis. The house proved to be perfect for what we wanted: a quiet escape where the family could be together close to all that we love on the Cape. I highly recommend it and look forward to returning again next year.
