Del Mar Vacations
About Del Mar Vacations
Luke, the owner of the Del Mar Vacations, grew up in Wellfleet, Massachusetts and is a true wash-ashore. Along with his wife Christina, and their daughter Grace he resides in Orleans in a restored antique farmhouse near Pleasant Bay. He started Del Mar Vacations to provide great service to homeowners and vacationers alike. Luke was tired of rental homes that lacked the basic necessities - he felt that guests should be looking forward to their relaxing vacation rather than worrying about packing enough sheets, towels, and other essentials. Everything we do at Del Mar is geared toward making your guest experience better than the status quo. We strive to provide guests with a memorable experience in private homes for a true Cape Cod vacation.

This property has recently been renovated, and it is extremely nice. There was a small problem at check in, as the key was not in the lockbox. I called Del Mar and immediately got someone on the phone. She helped me to get the extra keys right away.
On the downside, the couch in this unit is in terrible shape, with the surface peeling off. While this unit is directly on the beach dune, there is no where to sit outside that is shaded. There is no table with an umbrella and no overhang on this narrow balcony. The lounge chairs which you see in the first photo is for the use of the tenants below only.
Also the wind coming off the water in this location can be very
STRONG, so that it is not comfortable to sit outside on the balcony. I got the impression over the course of the week that it can be quite windy here very often. I didn't necessarily enjoy that.
There is a long stretch of beach here, which you can walk when the tide is low, but the entire beach is very rocky with a lot of seaweed. We had not brought water shoes, which would have been ideal.
I was very impressed with Del Mar and their responsiveness to any questions I had. They also checked back with me a couple of times to be sure things were going well. I would certainly rent through them again.
Great place, right on the beach and close to town!
The place was beautiful and exactly as advertised. We had a great time and had everything we needed!
The only thing that was annoying was, there is a cleaning fee on top of very specific instructions on how to leave the place clean yourself. Along with a very early check out time and a later than normal check in time, they have seven hours before the next person checks in.
Check out time was 9am! They granted us a “late” check out when I asked and extended it to 10am which I think is still very early.
I'm pretty sure this is Del Mar Vacations policy and not HomeAway.
I’m sure they have their reasons for their policies but It’s just something I’ve never run into before using HomeAway and was worth mentioning.
We are a family of 5 from Europe (2 teens, one pre-teen) and came to the property from a stay in New York. The idea was a refreshing stay at the beach between city breaks. We were really impressed by the cleanliness and decor of the property, and the views from both sides of the property were fantastic. We had a couple of questions and the agency was very responsive and helpful. The beds were comfy, the kitchen was well appointed and well maintained. Basically we had all we needed. The private beach was a boon too and, during the week before Memorial Day weekend, we were practically alone, so can't speak to how noisy it is when others are staying.
The grill was a bit difficult to find/identify but we figured it out, but it was so windy during our stay that we could only use it once.
Parking was fine. You do need a car here but Provincetown is only a couple of minutes away.
Overall this stay was the best part of our trip and we wish we'd stayed for longer.
Beautiful view of ocean, clean condo, had everything we needed for amenities. Will try to return.
Gorgeous, comfortable, welcoming
This is a wonderful condo, with magnificent beach and water views. Well stocked and thoughtful amenities. A
The views are nothing short of AMAZING! The place was perfectly clean and exactly what we wanted. Thank you!
Thank you Bob! We are lucky to have guests like you! Come back soon.
