We loved the house, it was just what we wished for. Very clean and well maintained. It had all the facilities needed, the kitchen had all the utensils required for our stay. Having a dishwasher a large fridge with a freezer and washing machine and tumble dryer were perfect. We spent many evenings on the deck eating our Bbq in the sunshine. The location was perfect, very central for touring, nothing was too far away. We are now saving for next year!

What a good choice this was! The house was very clean and spacious with all furnishings and fittings of a high standard and every amenity you could wish for. The property has easy access to many restaurants and also a good local supermarket. Apart from visiting many of the lovely places on Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Princetown, Chatham etc, the men enjoyed playing golf on many of the courses in the area and us girls enjoyed a spot of shopping at Wrentham Outlet and Boston - we had come prepared with roomy cases! But whereever our daily travels took us we were always happy to return to the comfort of our holiday home. We all agreed this will certainly rate as one of our most enjoyable holidays and we would love to return in the not too distant future to pick up where we left off.

One full bathroom upstairs and one downstairs. Huge dining room with a large table and two living rooms, each with a flat panel TV. The air hockey/pool table was fun too. As the previous reviewer wrote, my favorite part of the house is the HUGE deck, with tons of patio furniture, large gas grill, and beautiful view of the marsh and pond area. We also had fun playing horse shoes in the back yard. Another great thing about this house is the location. Hyannis is minutes away, and Route 28 is very close. Tons of restaurants and shops very close to the house. We especially appreciated that, since we stayed the last weekend in September. Things start to close for the season then, on other parts of the Cape. I understand the beach is real close too, but we did not get a chance to go to the beach, since it was the last weekend in September. We did enjoy golfing and fishing while we were there though. Both were close to the house.
