Guestbook comments from the owner

Better than the description by far! Location was unimaginably beautiful and private. House well stocked, clean, and easy to maintain. Comfortable furniture in and out. We could not believe how lucky we were to find it. As an aside, I heard that my dad died near the end of the week. He loved the ocean, so it was especially fitting that we were all there together. The house itself felt like a comfort.

Thank you,

An Amazingly Wonderful Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

We had the good fortune of staying here during the July 4th week. It was an amazing. Everything was top-notch... especially the handicap accessibility. This vacation home provided a wonderful beach experience for our handicapped son who enjoyed himself tremendously. We could not have asked for more... Hoping to return again in the future..

The perfect Cap Cod vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Great private location right on the beach. The house is fully equipted with everything you need to feel comfortable and relaxed. We searched for a place that was close to the beach and this property is probably as close as you can get. The soothing sound of the waves was wonderful.

The short 10 minitue drive to PTown was perfect too. We enjoyed a couple delicious restaurants in town and of course cooked lobster at the house in the huge lobster pot. I would reccommend Mary's North Truro Beach house to anyone. Thank you, Tom and Milo

Outstanding Wheelchair Accessible rental

  • 5 of 5

Terry and Mary's home is a beautiful place to spend a week, or more! The location is exquisite and the home is comfortable, charming and fully loaded. But for us the best part of this property is that this is the only truly handicap accessible rental property we have ever found on the Cape. Even the beach is accessible by the beach wheelchair that is included with the home. But our disabled guest preferred to sit in comfort on the deck overlooking the beach and ocean, with shade and drink close at hand. My only reluctance in writing this review is that I don’t want this secret to get out and our weeks won’t be available!
