Very nice property. Location is excellent, quiet end of cul-de-sac, 10 minute walk to very nice beach, easy access to Rte 6A and all that Brewster has to offer. Very near state park and beautiful bike trail. House is clean and in very good condition. Minor problems included creaky floor in one bedroom, noisy fans need to be replaced. Kitchen nice for a house that size, we did some serious cooking for up to 12 people, appliances and cookware fine but could use some new frypans and a bigger lobster pot. Outdoor grill is awesome. House was functional for up to 12 people some nights, would be better for 8-10 people, driveway fit up to 5 cars. Yard is small but you can play bocce, frisbee, etc on the beach. Owner was pleasant and very easy to deal with. Thanks to the owner for a great experience.

For starters, the Cape is the perfect destination for a family vacation. We had made it our family vacation for many years, and are delighted to make it back even for a few days after taking a few years off. In general, I would call this a so-so house with generous space in an outstanding location. The house is indeed just a 10 minute walk from the beach, which is just beautiful. The flats make for fun exploration of lady crabs, spider crabs and hermit crabs with the kids as the tide goes out. The water was bath-water warm and perfectly clear. The house itself is located just a few minutes’ drive from the rotary in Orleans; Jomamma’s breakfast & lunch place; and the all-important Cobie’s ice cream shack. The house is clean, freshly painted and perfectly respectable though it feels a bit tired. Floors sag a little, the top rack of the dishwasher doesn’t pull out all the way. There are a lot of beds. It is a stretch to say the house has air conditioning, which consists of a portable room AC that smells musty when you turn it on. The owner would do better to leave AC off the listing – you only need AC a few days of the summer on the Cape anyway, though we happened to be there during all of them. The screen porch is terrific. All in all, we had a great time and were entirely happy with this house. We appreciate having found a nice house in a great location at the last minute, and we had a great mini-vacation here.
