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. You will be less than 100 feet to the beach, with views of the Atlantic Ocean and Lewis Bay. Enjoy the activity in the bay with windsurfers, sailboat races and ferries traveling to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard.

From the living room with fireplace, vaulted ceiling and loft, dining room and kitchen area, you can excite all the senses – see, feel, hear, touch and smell the sea and salt air. Take it all in as you may discover that this is the real fountain of youth.

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 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

Another stay at Upwind, another solitary complaint....our stay was simply too short!. Everything else was perfect. Thank you for opening your immaculate home to us again. And thank you again, for controlling the gorgeous weather - we won't ask how you do it. Another painful goodbye.

First Timers To The Cape

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I are very old and most of our travel is using timeshares that we have owned for many years. We have not rented a place very often. We are from Seattle and we were meeting long time friends from New Hampshire. They have some health issues so we needed more than a timeshare. I did a lot of research beforehand but we got lucky. Brian and Gayle made our stay one of our best vacations ever. The home is right on the water with a nice beach and an inlet where there was private boating. I caught fish right in front. The home is luxurious and well maintained. It is fully equipped and very comfortable. Water and ferry views. Very quiet neighborhood. The owners live next door but they left on a vacation the day after we got there. They checked in with us several time to make sure we didn't have any problems and didn't need anything. Even though we spent more than we usually do it was well worth it. I would recommend ti to anyone. We had a great two weeks. The ferries to Nantuckett and Martha's Vineyard are very close to the home. We visited both. We don't eat out much but we went to Keltic Kitchen and Yarmouth House and they are exceptional restaurants and very close to the home. We also went to Dennisport and had dinner at the Ocean House. Outstanding! Brian and Gail are very nice people and they care about their guests.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Gail and Brian for making our girls birthday getaway such a memorable experience. The accommodations were what we had hoped for and so much more! We now all have such great memories of our 60th year.

You certainly thought of everything to make our stay so pleasant.

I have used VRBO several times in the past, and by far, this was the best!

Thanks also for helping us out with the car challenges..You guys were wonderful hosts!

The property is well located, clean and comfortable, steps from the beach. Great kitchen with everything you may need or want. Five adults and a child had ample space and privacy. All the makings for a pleasant and relaxing vacation.

What vacation memories are made of!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for making sure our vacation was so memorable! The house was everything you said it would be and more! The little treats you left for us was an unexpected and pleasant surprise. We filled our seashell jars to the top, and love the beautiful Christmas ornaments. This will be a vacation we will remember for a lifetime.

Gail and Brian couldn't of been nicer, they truly do provide everything you need! All you need to do is pack your clothes and come to spend a wonderful week at the beach!

Upwind is an ideal holiday family rental!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful break in a beautiful part of the world. Brian Quinn is perfect host and Upwind is an ideal rental property. Equipped to a very high standard it is complemented by it's beach front location. We would recommend Upwind if you are looking for a relaxing break by the sea. There are plenty of activities to enjoy! Recommended is the whale watching, spectacular, and the bike trail. The house is equipped with everything for a relaxing stay. Lovely family memories made here in Cape Cod! Particularly Ellie's 21st birthday. Thank you, Tracey,Elisha Kieran and Peter Corcoran ..from Braintree, Essex, U. K.

A beautiful house and a wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I along with our two young daughters recently stayed a week at Upwind at the beginning of August. We had made our decision to book this house based on reading many positive reviews about the house. I am very happy to say that it was everything we wanted it to be! We were welcomed right away to the home with a lovely welcome basket, the table was beautifully set already and included 2 adult settings and 2 child settings with their own plastic cups, plates and silverware ready to go. The house was as beautiful as the pictures show, clean, and included so many extras that really help when you are renting a home. To be able to have a high chair, booster seat, pack and play, towels, beach chairs, beach toys.. all there allowed us to pack much lighter which always makes things easier! There was also a lot of coloring books and paper and things that my daughters loved! The house itself besides being a beautiful space is in a wonderful location. You are steps from the beach and the lower and upper deck provide such wonderful outdoor space to enjoy during your stay. We ate most of our meals on the outside picnic table and my husband and I enjoyed almost every night on the upper deck taking in the beautiful views and watching the small planes approach and depart the local nearby municipal airport (my husband absolutely loved this and it was quite beautiful to see the planes fly into the sunset). Gail and Brian were extremely nice and made themselves available to us if we needed anything at all. The beach that is steps away is a beautiful one not too large and perfect for young children. During our stay we were able to not only enjoy the beach but also take our little ones on a kids fishing charter, located only about 20 min away, as well as go into some nearby towns like Hyannis and Chatham, all a close distance away as well. Overall, this was a wonderful house and a wonderful vacation and I would absolutely not only recommend this to a friend, but would be very happy to be able to return to the house again another year!
