Another great vacation

We just returned from another glorious week in Osterville. This was our second year renting Ralph's house and it couldn't have been any better. Literally, the house has everything you need for a beach vacation which makes packing a snap. The house is stocked, spotless, the beds are all comfortable, and everything was in perfect working order.

Our teen guests enjoyed the freedom of walking to the beach, pond and town center- all easily accessible on foot. We enjoyed the beach pass, kayaks, the lovely backyard and just felt very comfortable and at home in the house. There is even a car vacuum in the garage for beach sand.

If you are thinking about this house for your vacation … think no further. It is perfect.

Perfect for Pandemic - or any time of year

For a family that typically travels and rents vacation properties 2-3 times / year, finding ourselves at home for over 12 months felt VERY long and isolating. To say that it was a breath of fresh air to get away to Osterville is the understatement of the year!

Simply put, Ralph's house was perfect for us. We had more space than we needed, but by having spare bedrooms (one with a desk, keyboard, and monitor!) we were all able to work and do school remotely without being on top of each other. The internet was stable, too.

In terms of the living spaces, we have rarely - if ever - come across a cleaner or better outfitted rental property. The kitchen had all the basic necessities - plus others we didn't expect to see. We typically travel with knives and kitchen equipment since we love to cook, and we were pleasantly surprised to find we needed nothing extra in this home. There was even laundry detergent, and nice shampoo in the shower. The living room furniture was covered and clean - even the garage (equipped with so much gear that we are dreaming of coming back when it is warm enough to spend time at the beach and in the yard!) was spotless! And the beds, bedding, and pillows were as comfortable and relaxing as they looked. Felt like a retreat, really - and the decor was a perfect balance of seeming 'beachy' without hitting you over the head with an anchor or a lobster trap, as so many Cape rentals do. ;)

Location? If you want to be *on* the beach - this is not the house for you. HOWEVER, if you want a location that is - in many ways - *better* than being on the beach, you may have found your ideal rental home. We found we could walk to the beach in a scenic 30 min stroll, and there are bikes provided that would cut that time down to almost nothing. (Parking pass is offered if you prefer to drive). What I liked about the bit of distance from the water was that it was a residential area. It didn't feel crowded, or touristy - we like to just feel 'at home' when we are on vacation. Yet, in less than 5 minutes, we could cruise through the village on foot, where we found amazing take-out food (and cute eateries we look forward to dining in, post-pandemic), shops, and the all-important ice cream parlor (2 to choose from!). We even found ourselves motivated to make a daily 20 min hike (away from town) to visit the french Amie bakery, for pastries that were worth every step. (Just get there early!)

Overall, this house is a residential oasis. We felt relaxed, at home, and luxuriously 'away' for the first time in a year - all at the same time. We played board games (some provided!), watched movies (digital streaming available, too!), read novels on cozy chairs basking in streaming sunshine coming through the bright windows, and walked to comb the beaches for SO many shells. We ate fabulous food - both of our own making and from nearby restaurants.

It was heaven. We can't wait to go back - but almost don't want to post this review, since we fear it will never be vacant, again!

Thank you, Ralph - you are a quintessential host, and have been so gracious to answer all our questions, and provide such key advice to make our trip the best it could be. We look forward to renting again, soon.

Fantastic Stay!

Ralph and his were wife were great hosts from the moment we booked the place until we checked out. Throughout our stay, they were always available to answer any questions that came up. The house was lovely, coming with all the amenities needed to enjoy a beach town, including a well supplied kitchen. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to rent in Osterville!

Perfection

We found this house to be a perfect fit in every way for our crew which ranged in age from 12 to 72. There was ample space for 8 of us without ever feeling crowded. We had a particularly humid week and the central air was appreciated. The house is also spotless, clean beyond all expectations. The kitchen is beautiful and has everything you could possibly need. The garage was stocked with bikes, kayaks, chairs, outdoor games- you name it!

We found all of the beds very comfortable. The downstairs bedroom with connecting bath is great for anyone needing extra privacy or who may struggle with stairs. Our tween/teens loved the upstairs bedroom they slept in and named it the "dorm room". It accommodated the four of them with space to spare and was just a really fun space.

We all loved the patio and outdoor shower too. In terms of getting around we all walked and rode bikes into town, to Dowses Beach and Joshua's Pond with ease but appreciated the parking pass too to haul our gear.

This is a really nice house to stay in in a beautiful area, we will be back for years to come. The owners clearly take pride in the property and were there to show us around upon arrival. They took special care when I let them know we had a person with a nut allergy in our party and this helped us feel at ease.

Perfectly lovely house

We were delighted with our stay at this house. Everything was perfect! From the gorgeous kitchen with a grand marble island to the comfy living room and delightful outside patio, it was a perfect place to holiday on Cape Cod. We could walk down to Osterville for shopping and food, and walk to Joshuas Pond for a swim in a clear, clean kettle pond. The house was equipped with everything we needed, especially the kitchen. We even had bikes to use. A quiet neighborhood. We highly recommend this property!! show more show less

Perfect Vacation Home

The house is warm, bright, and comfortable. It is well located (a five minute walk into "town" and a five minute drive to Dowes beach). We had a great two weeks here and fully intend to return!

Wonderful Week in a Beautiful Home!

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in Osterville at this beautiful home. The house was immaculate! Clean, beautifully decorated, and comfortable for the whole family. We enjoyed many meals at the lovely table on the patio in the backyard, walks into town for ice cream, and spent long days at the beautiful Dowses and Craigville beaches. We appreciated that the owners checked in to make sure everything was going well during our stay, and had promptly answered all of our questions leading up to our arrival. We can't wait to return! show more show less

Wonderful Cape Week

We just got back from an amazing week in this lovely house in Osterville. Where do I begin? The home has been perfectly remodeled to feel like a beautiful blank canvas on which to paint your family’s Cape vacation. Everything you need is here. The appliances are new and state of the art. The bedrooms are spacious and the mattresses are all comfortable. My three grown children all attested to that!

We used the bikes to go down to the pond and the beach pass to check out one of the gorgeous local beaches. We had a fabulous al fresco dinner at the outside table with steamed lobsters and flank steak we cooked on the grill. We walked into town twice to have dinner: we weren’t thrilled with Wimpys but loved our splurge night at the lovely Five Bays Bistro.

The owners were helpful and responsive. The house is well equipped and we made good use of the WiFi as some of the kids were doing work on a few of the days. All in all, one of our very best family vacations!
