    3rd year in a row

    This is our 3rd time renting this home and we're already looking forward to the 4th. Spacious, clean and on a great private lot. So close to Skaket beach we often ride our bikes down to catch the sunset. You can't beat this location as it's minutes away from great restaurants, shopping and even a brewery. The bike trail network can also connect you to local businesses without the traffic. We loved spending time in the yard and there's lots of wildlife in the marsh. There's 2 separate seating areas with TV's and a great basement for games if you have a rainy day. We were fortunate with a perfect week of weather and spent most of our downtime on the deck under the awning. We can't recommend this place enough and are so happy we found it. If your looking for a mid-cape rental that's close to everything but also quiet and private you can't beat this house. show more show less

    HOME AWAY FROM HOME My family and I had such a great time and stay at Jennifer's home. It was so clean, comfortable, private, and very calming. We loved the backyard and deck so much. The area was so quiet at night and felt very secluded. The home is also perfect for a dog! We will definitely be back!! Thank you, Jennifer!!

    Jennifer's home was just perfect for what we needed and we were even able to bring our pup!! We escaped after the holidays, so were there off-season, and didn't really do anything touristy except relax!! It was about 1/2 mile walk to Skaket Beach and a short drive to Nauset Beach. Just under a mile to the center of town which has everything you need (grocery stores, coffee shops- definitely recommend the Hot Chocolate Sparrow, restaurants, boutique stores, etc). Skaket Road is on the busier side, but definitely still walkable to the beach and both entrances of the Bike Path. We loved Jennifer's home and were able to utilize the fireplace on cold nights and also enjoyed the game room downstairs (equipped with Ms. Pacman, Wii and an Air Hockey table). The home is on the smaller side, but didn't feel small when you were in it. Had two separate 'living' spaces, ample closets, dressers, and the bedrooms felt more spacious than the pictures show. As we were there off-season, not much was open, and we did all the cooking at home. We would recommend if you like to cook, to bring your favorite spices/etc as the kitchen was stocked with the bare essentials. Overall, Jennifer's home was perfect, and would be the perfect getaway in the summer for a couple or small family or in the winter, if you're looking for a nice place to unwind. Jennifer was very responsive especially considering we arrived on Christmas Day and left of New Years. Would definitely recommend Jennifer's home if you're seeking a Cape escape in Orleans!! Thanks so much for having us, we appreciate it!! show more show less

    Perfect Cape Cod Vacation House

    This is our 2nd year staying here for vacation for our family of four. The house was clean and felt cozy. We loved being in walking distance to Skaket beach our two girls loved playing for hours in the tide pools. The location was excellent as we could easy go into town, the bike trail, or take a day sightseeing the other local towns.

    Our girls loved the backyard as there was lots of yard games and a private space to run around. My husband and I loved waking up with coffee on the private deck. Jennifer checked in to make sure we were ok while we stayed and prior to checking out. We plan on returning to vacation here as often as we can! show more show less

    Amazing Stay

    We had one of our best Cape vacations yet at this home. It's a bit more difficult to find the perfect home and spot with a young child, but this was it!

    The property itself is amazing; situated on a private road, abutting a marsh with lots of bird life. The lawn was lush and there are trees providing nice shade. It's hard to find a place with an actual (grass) lawn to hangout on and not be sitting in pine needles and dirt!

    Hot tub was an added bonus that we didn't even need, but certainly used! Our daughter LOVED it. We didn't cook, but used the deck to eat some takeout meals, and the retractable awning came in handy.

    The inside of the home is newly renovated and very clean, which is VERY important to me. Mini AC splits through the house provided cooling, because it was very warm and humid.

    Proximity is within short walking distance to Skaket Beach, but also a perfect spot in general for all the places we love to go.

    Jennifer was very friendly and easy to communicate with during the booking experience and whenever called upon while we were there. We have already secured next years trip to The Skaket Beach House. I can't say enough about the entire experience, and already cannot wait until next year!

    Perfect Beach House

    My family of five that included three young boys absolutely loved this house. We have stayed in many "We Need a Vacation" Cape houses over the years, and this was hands down the best. Although only two beds/one bath, it was not an issue for two adults and three kids. The dual living rooms made it feel much bigger inside. The basement, although not pictured here, is a child's dream; air hockey, video games, darts, etc. It made rainy days enjoyable, and kept my children from the constant phrase "I'm sooo bored!!" The deck and views were amazing along with the hot tub particularly on the chilly evenings. The kitchen beautiful, clean, and a pleasure to cook in. The best feature in my mind though was the close proximity to Skaket Beach. We would drive down, my husband would drop us off, and he'd take the 10 minute walk back to join us for the beach day. Great money saver too on the daily $20 beach fee parking. The homeowner is a great communicator and was a pleasure to work with! Highly recommended if you can get a week - don't wait, it won't last! show more show less

    Location is great! We walked to Skaket Beach a few times and drove to Nauset Beach easily. The home was right for our family of 4 (and small dog). Our boys enjoyed the backyard games that were provided and we spent plenty of nights on the deck playing family trivial pursuit while enjoying the cool evening breeze. The owners were great with keeping in touch throughout the week and answering all of our questions. Overall, great experience!

    Skaket house

    Our family of 3 rented this house for the first week of August this summer 2020. This location is perfect for accessing some of the best lower cape beaches, especially one of our favorites Skaket Beach. The house was very clean on arrival and well equipped. We loved the back deck with huge awning and had most of our meals outside. We saw all kinds of wildlife from there including deer walking through the marsh and lots of bunnies and owls.

    My son really enjoyed the basement games and we had many Ms Pac-Man competitions that week! The week we stayed was very hot so we barely used the hot tub, even at night, but it was a nice option to have. We have rented in the lower cape for many years and think this may be the house that we keep coming back to.

    The layout makes this house feel larger than it is and offers many comfortable sleeping options. Because of this years Covid complications we really didn't know what to expect once we arrived but ended up having a really great time. Parking is limited at beaches this year so Skaket filled quickly. We highly recommend the beaches in Brewster especially Crosby beach for kids. Beach passes can be bought daily online and makes parking very easy for out of state guests. This house is close to everything but also hidden from noise and traffic its the perfect spot. We will definitely be back!

    Perfect House on Cape Cod

    We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this house - it had it all and had such a welcoming vibe. I kept thinking that there is no reason to stay at any other rental house when returning to the Cape. It was clean, comfortably, perfect for families with kids and perfectly located. There really isn't anything else you can ask for!

    We absolutely loved our stay at this home! The house was impeccably clean and the layout was perfect for our family of four. Having multiple living areas plus the basement game room makes this home feel much bigger than it is. The yard is so peaceful and beautiful whether relaxing in the hammock or enjoying the porch. It is just a 10 minute walk to Skaket Beach so not having to deal with beach parking was another big plus. It was fully stocked with everything we could possibly want from beach gear to kitchen tools to Roku/cable and books/games. Wi-fi signal was strong and reliable which we needed to work and school from home. Jennifer was easy to reach and quick to respond to any questions. We definitely hope to stay in this house again, we were very sad to leave!

    Jennifer and Dan lived on the Cape for almost 20 years before relocating to the North Shore for work, but our ties to the Cape run deep! The Skaket House is our little getaway and connection to the Cape, and we would like to share it with responsible folks who appreciate the natural beauty of Cape Cod, the joy of a nice sail on the bay at high tide or a walk on the sand flats at low tide, and relaxing family fun time!

    What is special about this property?
    Skaket Beach House is only 4/10ths of a mile (10-minute walk) to popular family-friendly bayside Skaket Beach, with its dramatic 1-mile tides, and the ocean beaches and freshwater ponds are 3-4 miles away. The back deck looks over the marsh that borders the property. A large flat backyard is great for bocce and badminton. A 4-person hot tub is on the lower deck - great for chilly nights! There is plenty of room inside the house for different activities - sitting in front of the fire in the sitting room, playing a game or watching TV in the family room, electronic or non-electronic games in the basement rec room.

    What is special about your town?
    Orleans is the ''city'' of the outer Cape (it has 2 grocery stores and 2 coffee shops and 2 traffic lights!). Charming Downtown Orleans is one mile away.

    The bay beach is approximately .4 miles away (10-minute walk) from Skaket Beach House and the ocean beaches and freshwater ponds are approximately 4 miles away.

    The Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking or walking is within a half-mile of the Skaket Beach House.

    Walking and hiking trails are nearby within the National Seashore and Nickerson State Park.

    Fishing, clamming, boating, and kayaking are all minutes away.
