About Ned & Valera Nichols

We currently reside in Southern NH. We are retired and have 2 adult children. We have been vacationing on the cape for years. We decided that Falmouth was the best location for us due to ease of access, beautiful beaches, the shining sea bike path, great restaurants & bars, and a thriving year round economy.

Ned & Valera Nichols purchased this house in 2015

Why Ned & Valera Nichols chose Cape Cod

We viewed a large number of properties in Falmouth. We fell in love with this house as soon as we walked into it. It is very attractive and clean. The location is private(on a dead end street) and close to a private beach on Great Pond.

We are close to nine(10) Falmouth public beaches(9 on the ocean 1 on a pond), a 12 mile bike path, five(5) public golf courses(all in Falmouth), Two(2) movie theatres, shopping for anything you may need, and many friendly restaurants and bars. Falmouth has everything!

What makes this house unique

This rental includes everything that you need: towels and washcloths, air conditioning upstairs and downstairs, WI FI, cable TV, Netflix, children welcome, smoke free, pet free, outdoor grill with gas, cotton sheets and pillow cases, paper products and all basic household supplies. Check it out. Very few rentals offer all of this. We will consider 5 day rentals in peak season(request quote).

Very comfortable and well appointed property with good accomodation for 6

  • 5 of 5

The home is well appointed, tastefully decorated in blue and white and in very good condition. Very comfortably sleeps 6. Full suite of electronic equipment including good wifi connection.

Owner has prepared a binder with all needed operational and community information available. Large yard with nice seating and good BBQ. Would definitely consider renting again.

Cute home close to everything

  • 4 of 5

My kids and I chose this home to spend a week on the Cape, and it was exactly what we needed -- minutes to downtown Falmouth, and an easy rendezvous point for family driving in from CT. While a little on the small side, we spent most of our time on the front porch or back patio, which is spacious. The house was very clean, well-appointed, and had nearly everything you could need (other than a non-stick frypan ... might be a good investment 😉?). The master bedroom upstairs is also extremely roomy and all the beds comfortable. I was very happy with my stay here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a quaint, quiet residence close to everything the Cape (and Martha's Vineyard because the ferry is close-by too) offer.

De Geer and Mackenzie Family

  • 4 of 5

We found the place to be very good for our family. Quiet dead-end street . Great for my two grandkids. We liked the fact that there was a bedroom downstairs. It gave everyone there privacy. Rooms upstairs are roomie with high ceilings. Backyard was very pleasant to sit and have dinner . The place was clean and cozy.

Perfect Cape Home

  • 5 of 5

This is what I consider the way Cape life is intended. We were greeted by the owners when we arrived as they had just finished setting things up for my family. They actually ran out to the store to re - supply some items and dropped them back off - we probably would never had missed it if they didn't. Great couple. The home sits at the end of a dead end street which was very quiet and provided a safe area for my 4 1/2 year old son to ride his bike. The neighbors are all extremely quiet and I only heard an occasional car. The location of the home is very convenient to Rte 28 and everything you will need but tucked away so you don't have to hear it! The backyard is beautiful and private giving comfortable space on the patio for dining and a late night game of cards. The size of the yard was perfect for bocce.

The home was very clean and well looked after, you can tell the owners have a great deal of pride in their home. We noticed many paintings by the owner hanging in most of the rooms giving it a nice touch. The kitchen was well equipped and we did not want for anything. With multiple TV's (high quality TV's) throughout the house, my family could spread out if they wanted too.

All of the beds were very comfortable and the master bedroom upstairs is quite large and gave plenty of comfort. There is a nice desk overlooking the yard where I set up my laptop so I could check in with work from time to time and not bother anyone else.

All in all we were very happy with our stay and we highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great Cape Cod getaway.

We are located less than 5 miles from parking area(s) along the Shining Sea Bike Path. This 12 mile paved path is an easy ride form North Falmouth to Woods Hole through forests, cranberry bogs, tidal inlets, and along the beach. Bike rentals are readily available. Falmouth has 10 separate beaches on the ocean. These beaches are among the nicest in the Upper Cape Cod region. The Bay and Sound waters are wonderful for families - warmer than the Atlantic Ocean (many, many degrees warmer!), and normally quite calm. All of the beaches require a daily parking fee or a permit. A permit allows parking at all Falmouth beaches.
