Lovely, clean, spacious home, a few heads up for future renters
We had a lovely week on the Cape at this house. It is well laid out, clean, is in a fabulous location. It was the perfect size for our family of 5. Some things to be aware of…
- We visit Orleans every summer and always filter our online search to only include houses with an outdoor shower. This house does NOT have an outdoor shower. There is a shower attached to one of the bedrooms that has a door to the outside and 1 small window but there is nothing outdoor about it - it is 100% enclosed. It appears to be an old sauna or cedar closet. Very stuffy, remains humid in there so your beach stuff will not dry at all and is not in a convenient spot to wash off sand, etc.
- There are very minimal window treatments as well as skylights in the upstairs bedrooms which may pose a problem for families with young children.
- The A/C is controlled on both floors but the owner must have it on some sort of setting that when you set it for a certain temperature, it only remains at that temp for a short period of time. I understand this may be helpful so that it is not wasteful and left running overtime, but we had to wake up a few times a night to set the A/C again both up and downstairs so a more thoughtful schedule could be set.
Again, we had a lovely stay and cleanliness is truly key, but these are things I feel travelers may want to know when searching for a rental.
