Marianne’s house is great, perfectly situated on the Cape . The back yard is shaded under large oak trees and the playground of many different birds! Very clean and well equipped this is the perfect home away from home! Thank you Marianne. A & H (AirBnB guest review)

Perfect location

Our stay could not have been better. The location was perfect to go to either Skaket or Nauset Beach. The house was very well supplied and very neat and clean. The homeowner Marianne was very kind and professional. We were very pleased and hope to return next year.

Orleans was the perfect location for our weekend getaway, there was so much to do! Marianne’s house was very comfortable and clean with so many amenities we felt right at home. She was the perfect host. I highly recommend. We had such a great time, we will certainly be back. Air B&B

This was our second time staying at Marianne's perfect Cape Cod home, and we would do so again and again and again. Words to describe the home: cozy, comfortable, easy, inviting, clean, "feels like home." Marianne is such a gracious host as well, checking in from time to time, making sure garbage cans are empty outside, and having anything one might need in a pinch (soap, beach chairs, etc.). We really do love this place, and recommend it to anyone looking for an ideal, quiet location on the Cape. (Air B&B review summer 2017)

We were so pleased with our second visit to Gibson Road and Marianne's hospitality. She goes out of her way to make sure her guests are comfortable and have everything you will need. Arriving late at night for checkin, what a relief to have some breakfast items and coffee waiting. The home is spacious, kitchen is well stocked and we appreciated she immediately updated the coffee mugs to a newer modern size when we suggested it. There is everything you would need for a day at the beach or an evening watching the Orleans Firebirds baseball team. The addition of AC units in the bedrooms are a plus this year too! We truly think of Marianne's place as a favorite during our trips to the Cape! (Air B&B Review from summer 2017)

We found this Orleans cozy Cape Cod house pretty perfect and would recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely home and a relaxing vacation. It was clean (spotless to be exact) and well appointed, very comfortable, and in a wonderful location just off the lake and driving distance to beaches on the bay and ocean sides. A few things we appreciated: 1) Basic supplies (shampoo, coffee and filters, even spare toothbrushes) were available when we arrived. It made settling in so nice. 2) Great deck with a grill that we used quite often, and a wonderful outdoor shower after a day at the beach. 3) Kitchen was outfitted with everything we would need to cook... And cook we did! 4) The house is in a quiet neighborhood but so close to restaurants and beaches. Marianne is a lovely host, kind enough to check-in from time to time. Give this place a try, but please, not on the week we want to stay again! Ha. AIrBnB review

Everything you Need!

This was a great summer rental! It had everything I was looking for including 2 bathrooms, washer dryer, and an outdoor shower. Marianne really thought of everything as far as stocking up for guests with paper goods, kitchen supplies, etc. Lots of great walking and biking around, too!

Thanks, Christine. It was a pleasure to have you. I really appreciate the care and consideration you and your travel companions showed our home. I hope you will consider us again when planning a Cape Cod vacation for 2017! Marianne

Our stay was very nice. Marianne is very friendly, helpful, and attentive to the needs of her guests. The house was cozy and clean and well equipped (umbrellas, chairs, BBQ, fully equipped kitchen). The spaces were large and more than just enough to accommodate 5 guests. We greatly enjoyed the area. It was quiet, and we appreciated the beaches and local wildlife. The house is convenient to services accessible by car. Marianne has left all kinds of necessities for the use of her guests. As we had a long trip and arrived late, we appreciated the breakfast items she left for us. In the house we found a lot of tourist information, brochures, even binoculars that were very useful for spotting seals and for bird watching. We had a very positive experience. Thank you, Marianne.

My husband and I were fortunate to be the first guests at Easy Living in East Orleans. Marianne has done a superb job at getting the house ready for guests. Due to our distance traveled and late arrival, she had some breakfast items awaiting us which was very nice. The house is clean and well equipped for stays on the Cape. It was a nice location to be able to explore the Orleans and Nauset Beach area as well as travel ease for the Upper Cape. We like to eat occasional meals in, instead of eating out every meal and the kitchen is well equipped. She even went out and picked up a few items I requested! The bed is comfy and there is lots of drawer and closet space for you to be able to move in and feel settled. She provides beach chairs and umbrella. Very handy to have a washer and dryer and dishwasher! You really feel like you are at your home away from home as the house is appointed with her family's items (nostalgic from my own childhood). There is virtually no street noise, it is very private, and we never slept better. Marianne was efficient, quickly responsive to questions and comments and we will hope to go back to Easy Living next season! AirBnB review
