Cape Cod is a famous vacation get away location. West Yarmouth is full of history and activity. This quaint home is a charming example of a New England shake shingled house with all of the modern conveniences.

About Brian Quinn

My wife and I are currently retired after 32 years living in the US and Asia working for a large corporation. We had several oceanfront rental properties over the years from cape cod to st. thomas, virgin islands, but now only rent our home in cape cod, the origin and flagship location of our rental business.

Brian Quinn purchased this house in 1992

Why Brian Quinn chose West Yarmouth

We grew up in New England and Cape Cod has always held a special place in our hearts. Immediately fell in love with the views and coziness of this home the moment we first walked in the front door. We have made several capital improvements to the house over the years, but hopefully kept the same original beach charm. West Yarmouth was perfect for us as it is so centrally located for activities, restaurants and shopping. In addition, it is a short drive once over the bridge.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We’ve loved being in your beautifully equipped home this week. The kitchen served us well for hosting a couple friends and we filled the bar wine fridge almost daily. The thoughtfulness of your care of guests is impressive. We’ve appreciated how completely stocked your home is with towels, chairs, soaps, plates, etc. Thank you for a wonderful week and many blessings to you.

Book this lovely home for your vacation!! You will NOT be disappointed.

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Gail were helpful from the moment I booked, to the end of our stay. I had questions, and they were very quick to answer them. The home was clean and inviting upon our arrival. They had the table set for us, and left us a small gift with a welcome note. We needed nothing but clothes and food. The beach/ocean was great. We walked, swam and fished it daily. We enjoyed the top deck on the home every night, watching the lights from the ships which passed thru Hyannis harbor close by. We vacationed in September and the weather was perfect and the crowds were minimal, exactly what we were looking for. The Cape Cod bike trail was awesome. We rode different sections three times, as well as a 30 mile ride thru the surrounding neighborhoods. We also took the ferry to Nantucket Island. That was a fantastic trip and I highly recommend it. There is plenty to do in the area if you choose, but the home is lovely and comfortable and hard to leave. The outdoor shower was cozy and the beds were very comfortable. The few neighbors we talked to were as pleasant as Brian and Gail. You will NOT be disappointed if you stay at Upwind.

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house the first week in September and we couldn't be happier. The house is extremely clean and very well equipped which made cooking and eating in a pleasure. It even has a wine refrigerator and outdoor shower which we took total advantage of. The owners of the property are super nice. They gave us a beautiful beach bag filled with Cape Cod and beach souvenirs, and the perfect beach toy for our 3 year old grandson which he loved.

We enjoyed cocktails on the upper deck overlooking the beach and harbor in the evenings. On a cold and rainy day we sat in the upper sitting area which was bright and airy to play board games and watch the weather. Our family and friends visited us throughout the week and everyone loved the opportunity to be on the water and totally relax.

In addition, West Yarmouth is close to so many things so trying out different beaches was easy and shops in Hyannis are only 10 minutes away. Just perfect!

Another wonderful week at Upwind!

  • 5 of 5

Brian and Gail are fantastic hosts and my family has enjoyed coming to Upwind for 7 years. The house and the location are very special with easy access and views of the beach along with being centrally located on Cape Cod to be able to explore other areas. We would highly recommend this house to others.

Wonderful house by the sea!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a really lovely home by the sea. We have had a fabulous week on cape cod. Highlights were; the whale watching off Provincetown - amazing, paddle boarding up the Bass River, watching seals on a deserted island, and loads of great food! Everyone loved the outdoor shower too! Many, many thanks.

Truly Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first visit to cape cod. As our oldest daughter is preparing to head off to college my husband and I wanted to take our family of six on a nice vacation, somewhere we've never been. We were like "fish out of water" so to speak. However with all your hospitality and all you have provided to guests in your beautiful home, the family felt right at home, enjoying so much of what cape cod has to offer. Thank you for the welcome basket of treasures. It was a pleasure meeting you both, we look forward to next year!

Wonderful week on the Cape!

  • 4 of 5

What a wonderful week we had in this nice beach front property. The beach was so convenient and the area was great to bike and walk in. We will always remember this week as on 7/17/17 our son proposed to his future wife on your beautiful deck. Thank you!
