Special Birthday Holiday

5 of 5
Three members of our foursome have "special" birthdays this year and with this in mind we chose to stay at this property aptly called "Gem of South Yarmouth". 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.
