My husband and I spent a lovely week here in August 2020. Maureen, the homeowner, was a very friendly and accessible host who was a true pleasure to deal with and her cozy condo was perfect for our needs.
The unit was impeccably neat and clean when we arrived. It has central heat and A/C in each room, one bathroom with tub, and a nice-sized kitchen that opens to a comfortable living/dining room. Two snug bedrooms both have a good amount of drawer storage, but hanging space is limited to a single narrow alcove. A ladder leads from the hallway up to a small loft. The place is well-equipped with a wide array of cleaning supplies, cooking and eating utensils. One assigned parking space is directly adjacent to the unit and additional or visitor parking is very close. Wifi worked well, as did text messaging, but cell service seems to be nonexistent in that neighborhood. The condo has a land line that can be used for local calls.
A highlight is its location tucked in a small, quiet enclave called Stendahl. This condo is the end unit in a row of about ten overlooking a beautiful pond. From the shady back deck, we enjoyed watching an osprey hunt with the binoculars thoughtfully provided by the host. Next door is the Popponesset Marketplace, a little complex of shops, eateries and a bike/kayak rental. The Popponesset Inn, a fine-dining establishment overlooking a private beach, is also just steps away. Within a short drive are several shopping centers, supermarkets and restaurants including those of Mashpee Commons.
The Mashpee Town Beach and South Cape Beach are 10 minutes by car and require a daily or weekly parking pass. They are well maintained and the water is pleasantly warm in August. The Spit is another public beach but is quite a long walk away with no parking. Directly opposite the condo behind the Inn is the Popponesset Beach, but this is unfortunately for members only and vigilantly patrolled, thus off-limits to renters in Stendahl.
I would recommend this condo for a single person, couple or perhaps a small family looking for a peaceful getaway. We had a wonderful time and hope to return. Thank you Maureen for making our vacation such a delight!
