Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful house to enjoy a family vacation. The house is equipped with just about anything you can think of. There is a lovely deck to enjoy the amazing sunsets as well as a covered porch to escape to when the bugs come out. The house is close to all the National Seashore beaches and there are many fabulous restaurants nearby. Our family had a blast! George & Susan Klug

Fantastic family vacation-- I miss the view!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and comfortable, and Marc was a gracious host. The views throughout the house are stunning and we felt lucky to spend a week here. Would absolutely recommend others rent this house, and we hope to be able to come back.

We have rented properties in Wellfleet and Truro every summer for years and this is by far the nicest place that we have stayed. The photos do not accurately reflect how big and spacious the house is. We were an extended family of 9 people and everyone managed to have their own private (and quiet) space. The kitchen was gorgeous and equipped with everything we needed for nights we didn't go out, but easy to get to all Wellfleet restaurants in a matter of minutes. It felt like we were in someone's well cared for home, as opposed to a rental house. Marc was available at any point to answer any questions. We couldn't have had a better stay.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Tania, for your glowing review of our home. We believe a place should not feel like a rental but more like a well cared-for home, and we're glad you found it so welcoming. We love sharing it with folks like yourselves, who enjoy the privilege of being in such a lovely place and location, and who treat it with the same respect and sense of good fortune that we do. - Marc

Beautiful house, fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting in Wellfleet for 30 years and this is definitely one of the nicest houses we have stayed in. Great open floor plan, modern kitchen with all the appliances you'd need, two master suite bedrooms and several other bedrooms, two outdoor showers (a must!). Best of all, lovely screened in porch and open deck with a wonderful view of Wellfleet Harbor. Short walk down to private beach and short walk to Uncle Tim's Bridge and town center. Thank you, Marc and Sarah, for a great week in a terrific house.

Beautiful home!

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing week in Wellfleet. This home has a fantastic view of the pier and gorgeous sunsets and is close to everything in town and to nearby towns. There was ample space and the kitchen and bathrooms were well equipped. The house is beautifully decorated and we were even able to pick herbs and veggies straight from the garden.

Marc responded quickly to any question or issue we had.

My only disappointment was the beach. Though there is ample waterfront access in the backyard and kayaks to use, the water is marshy with boats driving to and from the adjacent busy pier; it was not clean and there were live and dead crabs everywhere -- I was not comfortable having my young kids swim there.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much, Farhana, for your thoughtful review. Yes, we love our home for the same reasons you do...location, comfort, amenities, etc. We're sorry you did not enjoy the beach. It is in a unique spot and, during high tide, one can swim comfortably when the beach grasses are underwater. You should try the kayaks next time! Also, horseshoe crabs, alive or not, have been in the area for millions of years, but I agree, they can be unnerving for young children who may not have seen them up close before! :)

The house was perfect for 2 families

  • 4 of 5

The House is clean & modern , We loved the layout , The lower level was great for our kids to play games watch tv , the upper level was great with two master suites and the kitchen living area was great for large gatherings and cooking . Ac worked grerat the weather was 90+ the week we were in wellfleet , The Wifi was top notch . we were all able to stream movies and for some of us who had to work it was great .

The washer and dryer were used alot also .

The outdoor space is mostly gravel and sand dunes , a short stroll to the beach or town . We had a great view of the harbour and all the events on the Dock & Marina.

Marc is very accommodating & helpful . I would reccommend the House to Friends .
