Amazing Fall Getaway in Falmouth!

Perfect location. Well appointed and clean, clean, clean! This was a multi-generational trip. Ages ranging from 60 years old to 9 mos. We loved the location! Once we arrived we only got in the car once to get some Pies and Pie Ala mode in Teaticket. (A Must!) Walked to the ferry, Falmouth Heights Beach and downtown. Our kids even walked to the local theater one evening, while we got to watch our grand daughter. The house is crispy clean and recently renovated. The baby crawled everywhere and her knees stayed clean! The house is well appointed. Everything you need is at hand and the eye for design detail was so appreciated! We truly felt we got to escape to the Cape in this sweet little cottage by the sea!

Perfect Escape!

My husband and I just returned home from our second visit to this property. Our first visit was in August 2015 and we decided to plan another visit over MLK weekend 2016.

Both visits to this property were exceptional! The owners are incredibly hospitable, making sure that every comfort of home is provided with the rental. The house itself is beautiful and very well maintained. All three bedrooms are generous sizes, bathrooms are both updated very nicely, and the kitchen has all modern and clean appliances. The living room comfortably seats six adults. The entire house is very nicely decorated and it is clear that the owners take pride is maintaining the home. Even though many times on vacation we decide to eat at restaurants, this home and yard was so inviting and comfortable that we actually chose to eat at home many nights as well. The owner pointed us to a great fish market in town where we bought lobsters!

We were very pleasantly surprised by how many shops and restaurants remain open all year. We could easily walk into any of the restaurants in town and grab a seat. Some restaurants had really delicious winter menus that piqued our interest. On each of our three nights we were able to find live music at one of the restaurants in town. We loved getting to enjoy the town at a time when the streets and restaurants weren’t as busy.

This house is in the perfect location for any season. Over the summer, it was very convenient to be able to walk down to Falmouth Heights Beach, as well as British Beer Company which is right on the water. It is also a less than 5 minute walk to hop onto the Martha’s Vineyard ferry. So simple! In addition to walking to the beach, walking to town is just as easy. Within spitting distance is Friendly’s, Starbucks, and DJs Wings, and if you walk a bit further you will hit the main part of town in a couple of minutes that contains numerous restaurants, cafes, shops and candy/ice cream establishments. We loved having so many delicious culinary options each evening that we went out to dinner.

Overall, this house is just perfect for vacation.It’s in a prime location in all seasons, is very well maintained and welcoming, the owners are responsive, helpful and really do everything possible to make visitors feel at home. Before both visits, wonderful restaurant suggestions were given. The modern amenities of the house made it very comfortable. Most importantly, this house is impeccably clean! We will definitely head back!

Location, comfort, hospitality!

Fall on the Cape is amazing to begin with, and staying at this property made our Autumn trip to Falmouth that much better.

The house is beautiful, with a nice private back yard and patio that we found ourselves on most of the time. An outside shower in the cool morning air was amazing! The size of the house and property was more than enough to comfortably host the six adults in our group.

Nearby attractions are close enough to walk to for food and shopping. A short car ride will easily bring you to other sites on the Cape too.

Why I would really recommend this property though, is the hospitality of the owners. They really made us feel welcome and at ease. They were more than willing to make recommendations for things to do and see and made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay (coffee too!). If we travel to Falmouth in the future we will definitely stay here again!

Destination Wedding for Nephew!

What a wonderful homey place. We came from Washington State for my nephew's wedding and we were happy to see the rental house had everything we needed!! Location was perfect, it is a pleasant stroll to the beach & the wedding venue for us, which was a nice restaurant, The Casino Wharf. Access to the grocery store & other restaurants was also convenient. Part of the wedding itinerary was to go to Martha's Vineyard & a boat cruise, both these activities were with in walking distance to the house. The house was darling & comfortable, and had a Cape Cod feel which made our vacation that much more fun. We enjoyed sitting in the dining room for breakfast every morning & relaxing on the patio. We were able to have the rest of the family, that were staying about 4 blocks away, over for a Bar B Que, they had young children & we were able to find a few outside toys to entertain the girls. Everything is thought of. The people on the east side of our great country were all so pleasant and the owners of this property were very easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Very nice place, great location, very accessible

This place is awesome! We were up for an event at the Falmouth Yacht Club the convenience to both club and downtown restaurants was perfect. The house has been totally renovated and has a beautiful large patio out back that we used for grilling and relaxing after a long day on water. It had everything we needed, sheets, cutlery, soap for the washer/dryer even beachtowels. The house was very wheel chair accessible including the shower. Owner is very accommodating . We will definitely stay here again!

Loved our Stay at this Great Cottage

The Location is GREAT !

A simple walk or bike ride to the beach, restaurants, many stores and Ferry to MV.

Making life easy and relaxing.

Everything in the home is New, Clean, Functional, Nicely decorated and Pleasant.

Perfect for up to 6 people.

3 good size bedrooms, plenty of room to walk around and hooks to hangs things

2 Full Baths and an Awesome outdoor shower, which everybody loved!

Wonderful 3-season room was a great place for meals and hanging out. This room flows nicely out to the patio and yard, where we enjoyed grilling, drinks and yard games.

Close to Falmouth Harbor, giving you a nice breeze. If you are lucky you will hear the foghorn from Nobska lighthouse (a really fun treat).

This rental also comes stocked with all your linens (most do not) and has a conveniently located washer and dryer.

Kitchen is also well equipped making cooking a pleasant experience.

Would absolutely stay again and have already recommended to family and friends!

Great place to Enjoy your Vacation!

Clean, Cozy and Comfortable

Great location in a convenient, central neighborhood that's only a short walk from restaurants, the baseball field and beach. Nicely renovated interior with new bathrooms and nautical touches. Has super outdoor space featuring a fenced yard (great for dogs) and a large brick patio with gas grill for outdoor dining. Also has a fantastic outdoor shower built right into patio. Local owners are amiable, responsive and bent over backward to ensure we had a great stay. Would definitely recommend.

Very comfortable experience for our family.

This cottage was newly renovated and all of the upgrades were top shelf. The location permitted our family to walk to downtown and go to the shops and restaurants, walk to the beach and to get coffee and the paper each morning. The owner was very accommodating and, an added plus, he lives one mile away.

We plan to return next year.

Fabulous Falmouth Home

Our family of 4 arrived from the UK to what is now "our second home" in Cape Cod!. We have children aged 19 and 16. From our early enquiries about the house and area, the owners responded quickly and provided us with a wealth of very helpful information. By the end of our holiday, we felt as though they were friends and they were kindly letting us stay in their home! The house is spacious, clean and very comfortable and has more than enough crockery for a large party. Anything that we needed, they were very quick to respond to.
Falmouth is a beautiful town with loads going on. Great restaurants and a fab place to just wander. The beach at the end of the road is lovely. We went most days and it was always quiet (lifeguards were always there), with the ice cream van providing good snacks. We took the owner's advice about the wonderful french bakery, and picked up sandwiches from there to take to beach.
We would return in a heartbeat and would have no hesitation about staying with the owner and his family again!

Wonderful vacation home for extended family

My husband and I, our 2 toddlers, and their grandparents has a wonderful, fun, and relaxing time at this house. Our kids loved the toys in the house, the outdoor/beach toys, and most of all the outdoor shower. The full cable TV and baby equipment (pack 'n play etc) were nice bonuses. As parents, we loved the space for us all to spread out, the grill, and window air conditioning units in each bedroom to keep us sound asleep in the heat. The grandparents loved walking to the beach and the ice cream shop with the kids. The grandmother raved about the lovely dishware and the lavender and hydrangea plants in the front yard. We all loved the toy store, many restaurants, and the library.

The house was lovely, very nicely decorated, and comfortable for 4 adults and 2 kids to relax. The kitchen had a great base of tools and dishes for us to cook at home. It was extra nice to have bath tissues and clothing detergent already in the house. We had minor questions for the owner over the week, and he always responded immediately.

Loved it and our week in Falmouth!

Exceptional Property in Fabulous Location with Wonderful Owners

What a place! It took about 1.5 hours to drive down from greater Boston Saturday afternoon on major highways (a welcome respite from the major Cape traffic you'll find going farther down around Orleans/Chatham area).

Any drive is bound to leave you hungry, so it was great walking through the front door to see the owner's meticulously researched "catalog" on restaurants, pubs, shops, etc. and myriad assortment of delivery and take-out menus sitting in the dining room. A quick unpacking in the spacious bedrooms and we were off walking to one of the local Italian eateries recommended by the owner. A five minute walk later we were seated and scanning menus, and around check time a quick namedrop earned a round of complimentary digestivos :)

The next morning it was a ten minute walk to the beach. The water's cold, but New England blood is thicker than water so swimming is a must. And if you're not the swimming type, a brisk walk or bikeride is scenic and pleasant.

After a draining day outdoors, the house is splendidly equipped for laziness and sloth. With an excellent booknook full of salty seafaring books and picturesque Kennedy bios, readers can sit on the quaint wicker chairs or sprawl across one of the comfy couches. If its a beautiful day (when isn't it on the Cape?) then mosey on back to the patio and pull open the umbrella for some sun and fresh air. If reading is not your thing, they've got every Bahstan-tinged movie to come out since Good Will Hunting, and TV is equipped with cable.

All and all, an excellent choice to get away, close enough to the beach to smell the surf and close enough to town to enjoy a slice of quaint, local goodness.

Great vacation home!

I'm hesitant to let anyone know how fabulous this house is for fear it will always be booked when we want to rent again! Me, my husband and my twin boys (1.5) enjoyed every second in this house. It was the perfect size and it had everything we needed- not only inside but outside as well. The rooms were large, beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for my very active boys to run around. The sun room is a great area for people and dog watching- and for keeping the toys contained! The best part of our day was coming home from the beach and hopping in the outdoor shower. We all loved it. The location is perfect as well. Restaurants are a 5 min walk, if that. And the beach on the other end of the street is a 10 min walk. I really can't say enough about the house itself- clean, spacious and it has everything you need. The owners are beyond wonderful. They answered all the questions we had prior to vacation and while we were there. They are very nice, responsive, responsible owners and it was a relief to us that if we did need to reach them, they would respond. I would recommend obtaining a beach pass for the time you are there- that way you can visit all of the beaches Falmouth has to offer. We spent our whole 2 weeks at Stoney Beach in Woods Hole- wonderful for small kids. We can not wait until next summer!

Exceptional Property in Fabulous Location with Wonderful Owners

Our family of four stayed at this lovely home in Falmouth for a week in August. Prior to our arrival, the owners were very helpful providing insights about both the home and the area. Their pride of ownership was evident and they were a pleasure to work with. We have rented many beach homes over the years and would rate this at the top. The patio with gas grill came in handy for several dinners and s'mores. The beds were very comfortable and the home was as clean as any we have rented. The décor was charming and new. We would highly recommend this property to friends, relatives and anyone who wants to get away from it all and relax on Cape Cod.

Great House for Families. Well equipped and very conveniant to beach and town.

We had a wonderful stay the week of the fourth of July. Ages ranged from 17 to 82 and all had a wonderful week. My brother actually rented the house across the street for the same week where the rest of the family stayed. Our house ended up being the cook-out headquarters because it has a large patio and yard. We did half the puzzles, played croquet, rode bikes (except the 82 year old) and ate lots of lobster. The beds were comfortable and the house was very clean. And thank goodness for the air conditioning in the bedrooms.

Wonderful Home, Fantastic Owners.

We have been renting on the Cape/Islands for the past 20 years - and this home rates at the top of our list. My family, plus my parents had plenty of room and space to really enjoy the home - and not just utilize it as a place to sleep and shower. Perfect location, great layout, wonderful yard, and homeowners that are truly a joy to rent from. We will be back for many years to come.

Wonderful Cape Cod holiday!

We had such a great time at this quintessential Cape Cod house! There are several attractions within a short driving distance, but we really enjoyed the ease of being able to walk to the beach or town for shopping, dinner and/or ice cream. There is a concert once a week as well as a fresh market and craft show on the lawn beside the main street. After a nice day at the beach or walking around town, it was so relaxing to come back to this lovely house where our kids could play. The owners have stocked the house with toys, games, and books for kids and adults, and the colors of the rooms and the decor were gorgeous, exactly what I would expect in a New England beach house. We really enjoyed their large patio and back yard as well. Check out the amazingly fresh fish from the local fishmonger recommended by the owners, which you can quickly bbq for dinner after a full day of activities.

Fabulous Choice for Families

My husband, three young sons (ages 2, 5 and 7) and I spent one week
here in August/September 2010. The home is in perfect condition:
clean, well-maintained, organized and "as-shown" on the web-site.
The owners have really thought of everything and made this a great
home for vacationing families. Their pride of ownership is easy to see
and appreciate. The owners are very personaable, helpful and patient.
They answered scores of questions from me prior to our visit and called
during our stay to ensure everything was in order, even as Hurricane
Earl approached. The location is ideal - even our 2-year-old walked to
the beach without much complaint. We will definitely stay here
again when we return to the Cape.

Clean, comfortable and well-located home in Falmouth

My family (with 2 children under the age of 10) spent 1 full week at this large, comfortable,well-equipped home in Falmouth. The house is perfectly situated as it is a short walk to the beach and very close to the heart of Falmouth. We used the house as a base for a series of day trips to beautiful beaches and quaint little towns up the Cape. Evenings were usually spent at the local beach searching for crabs and enjoying the sea air. This was our first trip to Cape Cod but definitely not our last. We would not hesitate to return to this home and have already recommended this location to many friend and family. I recall fondly a week of wonderful sleeps on comfortable and clean beds with windows open and fresh sea air cooling the space - it was perfect for a getaway. Thank you to the owners for thinking of so many details and making our stay so memorable and easy!
