It's in a tranquil spot. Our sons enjoyed playing ball games and cycling around the quiet roads on bikes kindly provided by the owners. The location is very good. Within a 5/10 minute walk is a very pleasant beach and play park. Also within a 5 minute drive are two large supermarkets and a wide variety of restaurants. We wanted a central location, so we could explore the whole of the Cape. We drove to Woods Hole, so that we could have a short crossing to Martha's Vineyard and we drove to Provincetown. Both were easy to reach for day trips. The owners were very helpful, providing bedding and towels for a small fee and providing contact details and information for us.

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!
