“Low standard - overpriced - rotten - don;t even think about it....”

We booked this expensive house end of July 2012 for one week with the family. For a rental price of USD 3400 a week you would expect some reasonable standard. The owner raised high expectations when describing this place. In reality this house is basically rotten and requires a complete refurbishment. The beds are scrap and should have been replaced ages ago. The kitchen does not even have a dishwasher and is below standard. A washing machine is in the cellar but the owner did not allow to use it. We ordered some linens & towels for add. USD 100 and got some cheap synthetic, ugly stuff which was not even worth the fee.
I attached some picture and could offer even more - be glad I didn't show you the rusty mirrored bathroom cabinet.
So - don't even think about renting it - there are some much better places nearby for a fair price.

“Disappointing”

This was our first trip to the Cape ( family of 4 including a 15 and 14 year old) and therefore, we might not be aware of the customs followed on the Cape with vacation homes --we are long time residents of the West Coast and our vacation rental experience is mostly in California. So, keep that in mind for this review.

With that said, we leased this property for one week in July. The owners are very easy to deal with in terms of obtaining the rental agreement. They returned the deposit very quickly which we appreciated.

However, be aware the pictures of this property are a bit misleading with the pictures suggesting the house stands alone while, in reality ,it is located very close to surrounding houses. The house actually shares a stairway and porch with the larger house next door. Also, the house shares a drive way with several other properties. The drive way and parking was very crowded while we were there due to a significant numbers of people visiting and staying at the surrounding houses. The assigned parking spot for this house was usually not available for this reason.

Also ( again this might be customary for Cape rentals) the house did not come with any sheets , linens or towels or even paper towels or napkins. For the price paid for a one week rental, we found this to be surprising and resulted in us having to haul these items on our trip.

The property has only 2 small bathrooms which made things crowded even for our family of four.

The place has no air conditioning which again is probably typical for Cape vacation rentals . The week we were there was hot so this proved to be uncomfortable.

Lastly this property is located on the beach which is nice ; however, it is not really close to much in terms of restaurants or shops so we found ourselves constantly in the car driving to anything we wanted to do.

Not sure what the complaint is??

East Sandwich Beach is a quiet, private, family beach. We own the beach in front of our private beach association. We do have a neighbor to our right. To our left is conservation land, with our closest neighbor approximately 100 yards away. We do not share a porch. We do share a stairway to the driveway. We do have private reserved parking for our cottage which is clearly marked. If someone is in your parking space, simply bring it to our attention. Most Cape Cod rental homes require guests to supply their own towels and sheets. We can make sheets and towels available through our cleaning service. Most people will agree that two bathrooms should be sufficient for a two bedroom cottage. Most oceanfront Cape Cod cottages do not have air conditioning as we are right on the beach and get lots of ventilation. Fans are provided. Ours is a private and less crowded beach. We like it like that! We are located off of Old King’s Highway which is a historically protected area and considered one of the most scenic roads in America. Sorry you will not find T Shirt shops or McDonalds on East Sandwich Beach. They can be found in the more crowded and noisy towns of Yarmouth, Hyannis and Falmouth which is a short 15 minute drive. There are more than a dozen fine restaurants convenient to our cottage. Two are within walking distance. Marshland, voted “Best Cape Cod Breakfast” and featured on the Food Network is less than five miles from our Cape house as well as the 4 Star Daniel Webster and the Belfry Inn which is considered one of the best restaurants on Cape Cod.
