Why Ken Recke chose Falmouth

We purchased this home because of its fantastic location. We have a smaller family and the size is right for us and some guests. It's near the beach on a private one-way road, far enough off the busy beach road. We can overlook the pond, see Martha's Vineyard in the distance and enjoy the wildlife right off the deck. Due to the lot layout, from the back deck the closest neighbor's home you can see is across the pond so it is private and peaceful. Every room has a water view.

What makes this house unique

We've spent a lot time vacationing in Falmouth and think it is a perfect location. You will have easy access straight south from the Bourne Bridge, versus fighting traffic to get down cape. Main Street is always active with many restaurants and shops. There is almost always some festival or lawn event in the park. People are very active.... running, walking or biking. The Shining Sea Bikeway is a favorite, across town to Woods Hole or to Old Silver Beach. If you want to spend a day on the Vineyard, the Island Queen ferry is less than a mile from the front door... you can take bikes or rent them on the island and easily make a day of it.

Great spot, great town, great place to make memories.

Peaceful!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect! An absolute score on location. The house was so clean and up to date and had everything we needed.

Ken was great at answering any questions we had. Don't forget linens! I'm glad he mentioned that to me prior to packing.

The location is great! You have the pond behind the house and the beach across the street. A mile away is Walmart, supermarkets, liquor store, etc. then to realize Within a short walk is a ferry to the vineyard, anything you need is within a mile or two. The neighborhood is very quiet and calm we only heard birds.

We will certainly be back next year!

To come outside on the deck and be visited by rabbits was peaceful and relaxing with the morning sunrise. We felt refreshed and ready for summer! Our Grandmother enjoyed the whole weekend and quality time of relaxing with family.

Great house for families or groups of friends.

  • 5 of 5

We came in for a wedding for a former college classmate. House was exactly as advertised: clean, picturesque and right near the water. I would certainly recommend this property to anyone coming into the cape for vacation, weddings or any reason at all.

Perfect beach house

  • 5 of 5

The décor and facilities were faultless, the perfect beach house.

The view and sounds from the pond and the close proximity and view of the beach made this a very relaxing and memorable holiday for our family.

My daughters, aged 11 and 13, were delighted to have the use of the body-boards and scooter and they loved the fact that they could safely and easily go to the beach as often as they wanted throughout the day and up to sunset.

The general area is picture perfect and close to shops and a variety of restaurants.

Don't hesitate, book it now!

Quaint, updated, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house. It was just the right size, on smaller side. Caution the stairs to upstairs bedrooms are a bit steep - something to watch if you have older renters. 1 bedroom on main floor, 2 upstairs. Location on the inlet was perfect - best of both worlds with ocean across the street. Everything was updated and clean. The deck was great for grilling and hanging out into the evening. Ken was easy to work with and responsive. Really a great place to stay - we would stay there again next time without a hesitation!

In Falmouth, you don’t have to choose; you can bask on any number of sun-drenched beaches and then enjoy a leisurely stroll along our picture-perfect Main Street.

Discover fine gift and clothing boutiques, art galleries, specialty stores and restaurants for both fine and casual dining. Pass white picket fences, pause, step into the past, and take in the historic Village Green and stately church steeples. Visit a farm or explore the world of ecology and marine science in Woods Hole.

Warmed by the Gulf Stream, Falmouth’s mild waters make swimming, fishing and windsurfing memorable pastimes well into autumn. Bury your toes in warm sand and enjoy the salty essence of Falmouth’s 10 public beaches and 68 miles of winding coastline, along Vineyard Sound and Buzzards Bay. Bike the 10.7 mile-long Shining Sea Bikeway where you can cycle or stroll alongside the ocean, through salt marshes and across a working cranberry bog.

Discover the cultural side of Falmouth through summer stock light opera, small-town band concerts overlooking Falmouth harbor, cutting-edge theater productions, independent films at our Annual Woods Hole Film Festival, our historic museums, the Falmouth Art Center and many locally produced arts and entertainment events.
