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 East Falmouth

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).

Nice house on dead end street

  • 4 of 5

The house is very cute but with a very small family area to watch TV/Dvd's. Ned and Valera bent over backwards to accomodate some special requests we had and the house is well stocked. Great shampoo, conditioners, body wash etc. They were kind enough to let us borrow their beach chairs plus an unbrella which they brought from their home in NH. Although the listing indicates that the house is close to ten beaches...you must have a car and the ride is about 10 minutes away. Travel to the beach seemed to be one main negative draw back for us. Lots of games available in this cozy house. The backyard was nice but there were times when one of the neighbor's houses played their music quite loud so we did not use the yard too much. The proprietor's were most accomodating and very available if we needed them. Thanks for a wonderful stay & thanks for sending us the items we left behind.

Lovely, well equipped and comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults enjoyed our stay in East Falmouth at the Nichols' home. The home was very clean upon arrival and we appreciated the paper and cleaning products provided. There are beach chairs provided and the beaches are close by. We were able to cook meals at home as the kitchen is well equipped. The room air conditioners kept us very comfortable and the washer/dryer and dishwasher were all great! I loved the den/TV room, it was a also a quiet spot for reading, and if you forgot to bring along a book the house has some good books to borrow! I loved the artwork around the home created by talented artist and owner Valera Nichols. There is plenty to do close by, visit lighthouses, biking, beautiful gardens, restaurants and of course the charming Cape Cod towns. We appreciated the House Manual and it gave suggestions of things to do nearby. It was a great vacation and we loved the home!

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.

My family and I rented this lovely home for our summer vacation. It was perfect! The home had all we needed and more. Wonderful neighborhood and it was a perfect location to take advantage of all we wanted to do on our first visit to the cape. Thank you Ned and Valera!

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.
