Tranquil beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Windill home is pure magic. This was the most peaceful and enjoyable vacation we could have asked for. Every morning we took our 1 year old on our bicycles around the neighborhood and down to the beach. She loved walking out to the island while the tide was low and looking for hermit crabs and collecting seashells. Plenty of places to relax inside and outside of the house. We loved watching the sunsets on the outdoor couches. Definitely recommend picking up some steamed lobsters from the fish market down the street. Hyannis town is close and has a lot to offer, but we found ourselves grilling and enjoying the view from the windmill almost every night. Nobody wanted to leave! All around we highly recommend this home and we look forward to coming back in the future.

Outstanding house and amazingly tranquil setting!!! Highly recommended.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 week stay at the windmill in the second half of June. The house is fully equipped, extremely clean, and in a perfect quiet location with a wonderful view of a tidal river. Our son’s family stayed for 10 days and our 2 1/2 yr old granddaughter had a blast. It’s a very short 2-3 minute walk to the water, and there is a sand bar/ island that emerges as the tide goes out. Tons of shells, crabs, and fish to explore. We also did some fly fishing for small stripers and caught 2 or 3 most days. We did use the row boat to check out the ocean and the inlet. We also used the kayak almost daily—-Hall’s creek and the bay were full of bird life. Watching the ospreys fish was quite a sight. There is also a brand new bbq, some great outdoor couches and chairs, and great A/C in all rooms when it got hot and humid. We also ventured to a very nice local beach using the owners pass, and it was only a 5 minute drive. Plenty of good restaurants in Hyannis too, and that is only a 5 minute drive.

Highly recommend this property for a relaxing and tranquil break from the crowds. The setting is wonderful and the house and grounds are well maintained

Family Graduation celebration

  • 5 of 5

The stay at the windmill was all it was read to be! The home and site were beautiful and abundant living area and perfectly supplied. We took our boys and their wife/ girlfriend to celebrate their graduating from college. They both were college baseball players and wanted to see Fenway Park. Very good location to see all in the Cape area. Also very convenient for ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Great restaurants we really loved Captain Parkers clam time going there early in trip....three bowls....and taking quart or four for carry out for rest of trip! Only downside to trip was Budget/ Avis rental car line waited 2 hours to get from someone else! Great house for up to 8-10 people....had games there played Monopoly till 3 am with cocktails was great! Rent with confidence here!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your glowing response! We are so glad you had a wonderful stay at our home. We are centrally located on the Cape, close to everything but our neighborhood is quiet and secluded. Games galore, bicycles for all, canoe and sea kayak for your pleasure. Brand new fancy Weber grill for grilling too! C'mon back, we would love to have you again! Thanks again, The Gillis Family

The property is in a great neighbourhood and on the water. Everything that is in the property description was exactly the same as described. It is much better than the photos.
