Our family of six (grandparents, parents, and grandkids) has a wonderful time at this house in late June. The pictures do not do it justice.The house is large, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. The wrap-around deck provides stunning views, as promised. The best part was the access to a lovely saltwater pond, perfect for swimming (there is a dock) and launching the 2 kayaks that come with the house. It's not evident from the pictures on the website, but the mini-beach to the pond is only about 30 feet away from the house. We could watch the grandkids swim while sitting on the deck! It's a tidal pond that leads out to Nauset Beach, one of the best ocean beaches on the Cape. The owner also provides beach toys, umbrellas, chairs, and coolers-- everything you need for a wonderful vacation. Our grandchildren cannot wait to come back next summer.
The house and landscaped grounds were beautiful. Many beach rentals are bare-bones, but that was not the case here. The kitchen was fully-equipped, we had access to a gas grill, and all the beds were extremely comfortable. The air-conditioning was needed (and appreciated) for the second-floor bedrooms (we didn't need it for the first floor, as the breezes cooled everything down). It was clear that this was a well-loved and well-cared for home that the owners were sharing with you. Communication with Andrew (the owner) was fast and easy, and there is a local property manager to contact if necessary.
We had a great stay at this home. I could not recommend it more highly.It is perfect for a multi-generational family or two families sharing the home. East Orleans is also a perfect location on the Cape, secluded, with easy waterfront access, yet close to stores and restaurants. All in all, a wonderful experience.
