Perfect Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family, including 5 small children and 4 adults, spent a wonderful week in Chatham. Our holiday was made all the more enjoyable by staying in this extermely well appointed and spacious home. It was everything that was promised and more! Great central location--very close to family friendly beach, shops, retaurants and Chatham city center. The large, well maintained yard was perfect for our small fry and the cul de sac allowed for peaceful bike riding. The home included just about every amenity we could imagine and we used them all! So convenient! John gave us some great tips on restaurants, activities, etc.and they were spot on. Great property-perfect location!!

My family and I would like to tell you how much we enjoyed our week/vacation in Chatham. Your home is lovely and was well equipped with all the comforts and needs that we would want. We thoroughly enjoyed the deck and yard and took our little ones for a walk "around the block" each evening as the sun would set. The birds were beautiful! Later, the older folks loved the ping pong table and we became fiercely competitive!

Ridgevale Beach is fantastic and our 3 little grandchildren absolutely loved to "fish" in the bay/tidal area and swim all day. The water was warm and everyone was happy. Downtown Chatham was delightful and we got ice cream and little trinkets at the general store. Most of all, we fell in love with Marion's Pie Shop and became addicted to their lobster rolls!

All in all we loved our stay. Again, your house was great and your instructions were so helpful. Very organized and convenient. We replaced what we used, and even left a few things that we had just bought for the next tenants--kind of paying it forward.

Thank you, again, John. We hope to stay again if all goes smoothly next year!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

Beautiful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We were beyond pleased with this vacation home! It was perfect for our family. The weather wasn't the greatest but we made the best of it. The kids were able to hold Ping Pong and Foosball Tournament on the rainy days and we all gathered around and completed a 1000 piece puzzle while watching a movie on Netflix. I would love to stay here again and I would recommend this home to all my friends. It is a short walk to a beach. John and Nancy have maintained this home well and it is very nicely decorated. No one should be disappointed staying here.

Wonderful Family Home - Great location

  • 5 of 5

To get a break from the Arizona heat, my family came to Boston to visit family and decided to spend some time at the beach as well. This home was a fantastic place for us to host our family (mom, dad & two girls 8 &5) plus a rotating cast of aunts, uncles and cousins throughout the week. The home has a spacious 5 bedrooms with enough space for all to be comfortable. The kids loved the upstairs loft space for hanging out and playing (the pictures don't do the space justice). The kitchen was the most well stocked kitchen that we've had in all of our VRBO stays, which was fabulous as we enjoy cooking. We used the grill almost every night of our stay as we enjoyed fresh fish from the local Chatham Market. Our favorite part of the home was the back deck. We enjoyed our morning coffee and evening dinners there while the kids played in the yard. The beach is a close walk and it is not a far drive to anything you need (grocery, downtown Chatham, etc.) John was a pleasure to work with as we planned our vacation. We look forward to hopefully returning to beath the AZ heat again.

Our family rented this home to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary this past summer. We had such a wonderful time in John's beautiful home that we are thinking of returning next summer! This home, and the layout, was perfect for our family, which consisted of my parents, my sister and her two young children, and myself, husband, and young son. We felt like everyone had adequate space with room to spare. The kitchen is large with a pretty, cozy patio where we sat for breakfast each morning. The beach is an easy walk and the home is centrally located to where we could get to surrounding areas easily by car. The home was also very clean and provided all of the amenities we needed. John was an exceptional host. He spent a lot of time helping my sister and I plan a celebration for our parents', including putting together documents with a wide variety of ideas (activities, restaurants, catering services, etc.) we could choose from. His information and insight was invaluable and my parents were thrilled with their celebration! Our highlights were an evening sail with Matt from Chatham Classic Yacht Charters and dinner at the Wequassett Resort. John was easily accessible by email and responded quickly to questions/requests. Our family highly recommends staying in this home for your Chatham vacation. We can't wait to go back!

Couldn't be better!

  • 5 of 5

Having two small kids we often rent houses if we make it out on any sort of "vacation", and this was by far our best rental yet!! Everything is as described and better. The pictures don't do the house justice, it's bigger than we expected and it comes stocked with every single amenity you could think of. Best of all the landlord is the most organized, helpful, responsive landlord we have ever worked with.

The location is fantastic, it's a good 10 minute walk to the beach - down hill on the way there but uphill on the way back, so consider drop offs if you carry a lot of gear. three families stayed comfortably at the house and one of us bought a week's parking pass ($75, can use at any beach in chatham) and would drive the gear there (parking is plentiful at any time of day) while the rest of us enjoyed the walk. the beach (ridgevale) is PERFECT for kids, with small tide pools they can play happily and safely in for hours, plenty of crabs and minnows to catch, a delicious snack bar that has tons of lunch options (be forewarned, long wait) and easy to manage (you don't have to walk 2 miles to the shore like some other beaches down the cape). outdoor shower back at home makes clean up a breeze.

house is only a few minutes drive to chatham center, the BEST ice-cream shop (Old School House Icecream) is less than a 3min drive away (cash only), and a delicious bakery is walking distance. Though you could easily eat in everyday - pantry has some essentials, every spice you could imagine is available and alphabetized, keurig AND a regular coffee maker, ice-cream maker, TWO fridges/freezers (extra one in the garage...and we needed it!), grill outside that never runs out of gas (connected to the house), i mean seriously stocked kitchen. soap/detergent needed for dishwasher and washing machine are supplied.

you cannot go wrong with this fact, i almost wish i wasn't writing this review cause i don't want to give it up! we'll be back for sure.
