The thing that singles it out to me, is how much like being at home it feels. Sally, the owner, was so helpful and friendly that it felt like she was my friend and we were just staying in her home while she was away! Everything we needed was provided. We particularly liked sitting/lying out on the deck. Oh, and I must mention what a delight to find really sharp knives for the cooking! Location-wise, it was great. It's just over a mile to walk to the beach, but there is 10-minute parking there so we drove down in the car, offloaded, then my husband drove back to the house to park and then walked down - saved us $20 a day! There's free parking after 4.30 so on days where we went to the beach in the afternoon he would walk back at 4.30 to collect the car and then park till we were ready to leave. The beach is gorgeous and I loved to spot the seals swimming by. Good waves!

The location for exploring the cape was perfect - very easy to get to great beaches (Nauset and coast guards), and right by a lovely inlet/jetty with scenic views across meeting house pond - very tranquil. Day trips to both nantucket, and Provincetown all very accessible and the cape cod national sea shore is very close. The house was ideal for our family of 4 visiting the us from London -perfect blend of character and new (the kitchen/appliances were all new/excellent condition). Our 8 year old loved the cabin bed in one of the guest rooms and there was ample space for everyone. Orleans with good supermarkets and several restaurants is also very close. The host Eleanor is very proactive and will happily provide you with any info you need for your trip.
