One of the reasons we chose Marilyn's home for a weekend wedding stay was its perfect location near the beach and the downtown. Although the cold, rainy miserable weather dashed our hopes for walks to the beach and town, the house turned out to be a wonderful spot for our family to gather inside.
The layout was great for our family of six, stylishly decorated with comfortable furnishings and a well-appointed kitchen. The house was immaculate and included a full complement ofcleaning and laundry supplies. Marilyn was also super-responsive to any questions I had.
I would highly recommend this home for a family vacation.
We had a wonderful stay over the Labor Day weekend. The home is very well maintained and and the location is perfect. In the morning it's a short walk to get coffee and then the beach is in the neighborhood. There are also a few restaurants about a half mile away. The owners were wonderful to work with and any questions we had were immediately answered. The owners provided a care package of hand sanitizers and Clorox wipes which was particularly thoughtful with COVID-19. We would highly recommend this property.

My family of six was so happy with our stay here! We have two boys, two adults and two grandparents and all six of us found a house we all agreed is our favorite! It's an easy walk to town and to the beach and an easy (5 minutes!) drive to tons of kids attractions (go carts, bumper boats, mini putt-putt, ice cream, etc). The house has a lovely side yard and BBQ with outdoor seating. And everything is included (sheets, towels, beach chairs, etc.). Makes packing a breeze. The owner, Marilyn, is FANTASTIC. Hands down the most responsive, responsible, friendly and organized owner I have ever worked with. I highly recommend it for a great vacation!

I can't say enough good things about this rental. Clean doesn't begin to describe the condition; it was immaculate. So appreciated at any time, but particularly now with covid. The owner Marilyn is very hands on. She told me in detail how the house would be cleaned and it was also written down in her welcome notebook. She is very responsive and answered texts right away. The house is very comfortable and roomy and equipped with everything including beach stuff. We were 2 adlults and 4 kids and we felt we had plenty of room and privacy. The location was perfect for us as we could walk to the nearby beach and also into the cute little downtown area with its shops and restaurants. Everything was easy and peaceful. We stayed two weeks.

This house was amazing! So clean and put together. Everything was there we could possibly need, A crib for the baby, outdoor grill, even TONS of beach stuff like chairs, toys, and beach umbrellas. This truly felt like our home away from home. Will be staying here every year we come back to the Cape. Really, our first true 5 star rental we have had in all of our years of going to Cape Cod!

My family stayed here for the first time in June and we plan to return many times in the future. Located at the end of a dead end street, the private location is ideal for families with young children. We loved the newer house and all its amenities, including a stocked kitchen with food staples, beach equipment and good quality furniture. A five minute walk to the beach and town center is very convenient.

The house was very, very well equipped: and clean! The location was excellent and allowed us to walk to town and beach easily! Quiet neighborhood despite close proximity of houses. Super friendly neighborhood of renters and owners.

Couldn’t be happier with the beautiful home down the block from the beach. Everything you need plus spotless throughout. This is a fabulous family rental and Marilyn is a very caring owner who makes sure all is perfect for your stay!

My family and I have been renting this home from Marilyn for 7 summers now. There is plenty of comfortable living and sleeping room for our multi generational family of 7. We often cook dinner in the home, and have never been wanting for a utensil, pan, dish, cutting board, and so on. The house is a short walk to Dunkin Donuts and CVS which is handy for coffee and the paper. It's also a short walk in to town where all of the cute shops and restaurants are. Most importantly, it's a short flat walk to the beach! Great for families with young kids, grandparents, or any situation where you need to the flexibility to go back and forth from the beach to use the bathroom, grab a drink, take a nap, etc. The house is always clean with everything in good working order when we arrive. You can tell that Marilyn takes very good care of her home.
