About John Berrigan

Our family's first Summer in Great Harbors was in 1976, and we have never left since. We enjoy beach and boating on the warm water in Nantucket Sound as well as gatherings with family and friends, and trips to Martha's Vineyard.

John Berrigan purchased this house in 2011

Why John Berrigan chose Cape Cod

We had been looking at properties for several years in Great Harbors and when were serious about buying, this property was available. From the many houses we looked at, this is the perfect house to rent so people can discover what we have known for years about Great Harbors and Falmouth. The house has spacious living areas and can sleep eight people. It is easy to keep clean with hardwood floors throughout.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood is very unique with its beautiful clubhouse, pool and tennis facilities right on Great Pond (salt water bay with access to Nantucket Sound). A full time management staff including lifeguards and maintenance people are employed during the Summer. There is no other neighborhood quite like it on the Lower Cape.

Great home and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was very welcoming and comfortable in a quiet neighborhood. The location of the house was also great. Minutes to shopping and the water. The owner was very accommodating and just a text or call away. We enjoyed our stay and hope to return some day!

Spacious house in a quiet neighborhood short drive to downtown. The home was clean and had everything we needed. It comfortably slept 6 adults for a long weekend.

The house is lovely. It is clean, spacious, and well stocked with games and things for activies.

  • 3 of 5

We were very surprised that the beds were not made and the "starter" supply of toilet paper did not even last the first night. Having to wash, dry, and put away all linens, towels, and dishes before leaving put us much later in leaving than planned. The house really is nice, but the "rules" of washing etc were unreasonable.

Owner's Response: We stand behind our policy of keeping cleaning fees to a minimum, and do offer linen service at the guest’s option clearly described in the rental agreement. The house is fully stocked with essentials for at least the first day, not sure what the issue was in running out the first night, we will make a more concerted effort to make sure supplies are stocked moving forward.

Perfect Place for Cape Cod Get Away

  • 5 of 5

This is the first time in introduced my friends to airbnb. They loved it. Thanks to the owners of places that I rented especially John. This place was throughly cleaned, organized and worderful to come back to after a whole day visited places. The neighborhood is perfect to walk or bike around.

John responded to my questions quickly and accurately. It took us 15 minutes to get to the ferry, very close to market. I would highly recommend this place and definitely will try to visit John again.

Beautiful house and Great Set up!

  • 5 of 5

This house is great for a family! We are 4 with two children. There is a ping pong table, sports equipment, board games, entertainment system and a great big table for all kinds of indoor activities if the weather dictated it.

The rooms and layout of the house were fantastic.

The kitchen was great - all the equipment was great. My one suggestion for the kitchen (I like to cook) would be to get a wood or solid plastic cutting board rather than the glass one. I would also recommend getting a simple inexpensive chef knife (serrated perhaps so you don't have to worry about it remaining sharp) and a long serrated bread knife. Those three things would complete the kitchen perfectly.

The listing info was accurate.

In order to avoid the cleaning fee you have to do the laundry on all the sheets yourself and provide your own laundry detergent. This was a bit challenging to accomplish between wake up/shower time and check out at 11 am since it required several loads and a lot of dryer time. The owner allowed us extra time to do this so it ended up ok.

Would give it a 6 if we could

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay, plenty of room to spread out-it was a rainy week so we didn't get to enjoy the beautiful deck or yard. This home had everything you could want, a large, well appointed, kitchen, comfy beds, lots of storage room and was very clean. We would not hesitate to rent here again.
