We spent 11nights at the cottage and enjoyed our time there so much A very clean and well looked after property with everything you could possibly need. Ideal location for getting out and about with the nearest beach just a 5 minute drive. We didn't want to leave and really hope to return sometime in the near future!!

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.
