About Donna or Steve Yonchak
We have owned the Barking Urchin since 2003, and use the house ourselves whenever we can, in the Fall and Spring. We love how pretty and unspoiled Eastham still is, how quiet our street and neighborhood are, and our easy walks to Campground or Thumpertown beaches (and the Hole in One) in the mornings! We keep our home to the highest standards that we would expect for a Cape family vacation home, and what we would expect for ourselves.
Donna or Steve Yonchak purchased this House in 2003
Why Donna or Steve Yonchak chose North Eastham
After three years of house hunting at the Cape, we were lucky to find the right one! Even with the easy proximity to Route 6, the property is ultimately quiet and peaceful, the best of access and privacy.

We had a fabulous week at The Barking Crab!
This house on a very quiet street was perfect for our party of 2 couples. The house was spotlessly clean, and was exactly as described. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well -stocked and easy to prepare food in. The living area and outside deck (where we spent most of our time!) were very nice as well.
We had a minor issue which required contact with the owner who was very responsive. We would most definitely recommend this property!
Thank you for your review and we're so glad you enjoyed our house and Eastham, and hope we have the pleasure of hosting you again!
Terrific Eastham House
Comfortable house in convenient location. Loved the deck and outdoor fire pit!
Thank you so much, we're glad you enjoyed your stay amd that the house, indoor and out was so enjoyable. We hope you'll think of us if your travels bring you back to Eastham!
This home is cozy, comfortable and filled with unique charm. The owners have really made it so the minute you enter, you feel a sense of calm. The house was clean and stocked with everything you need from bath soap, shampoo to tons of dishes, silverware, glasses, dishes, etc. The yard is beautiful and private and also has its own whimsical charm. And the deck is great. We spent a lot of time just hanging together. Campground beach is close by and we watched some gorgeous sunsets there. Coast Guard beach is also close and we rode our bikes from The Salt Marsh Visitors Center a few mornings and evenings to witness gorgeous sunrises and sunsets. And of course, we visited Hole in One, for doughnuts and pastries, right down the street from the house. I could go on forever... Thank you Dana and Steve.
Thank you so much for your wonderful review! It makes us so happy when our guests feel happy, calm and joyful about the house and this magical part of Cape Cod. We hope to help create memories for a lifetime. Please come back again!
One mile to the bay side. Qne and half mile to the national shore. This house had everything you need - very well stocked and clean.
Thank you so much for coming back and staying with us again! We're glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you'll come back and stay with us again in the future.
It was a great location...close to several beaches My kids loved the backyard...especially the hammock. The outdoor showers was great too when we came from the beach. The owners were very helpful and responsive to everything. They even asked if we needed help with restaurants and entertainment. The house was well stocked with basic needs (soap, TP, PT, dishes, & spices) We definitely will be staying there again!
Thank you so much for your lovely review of our home. we are so glad that you enjoyed our house and your stay!
We love the Barking Urchin!
My wife, daughter and I have stayed at the Barkin Urchin for two weeks each of the past nine summers. Renting a house online is always a hit-or-miss proposition and when we first pulled into the driveway nine years ago we were thrilled to find that the house was exactly as the Yonchaks had described. The house is clean, spacious and well-equipped. There is nothing we can think of that we have wanted or needed that wasn't already there. As perfect as the house was the first time we stayed there, the Yonchaks have continued to make improvements to the property over the years - a new sectional couch, grill and a backyard firepit, just to name a few. The Barking Urchin is well-located on a quiet street and is just a ten minute drive from two spectacular ocean beaches in Eastham that are part of the Cape Cod National Seashore, as well as several beaches on Cape Cod Bay. Our most difficult decision each day is figuring out which beach to go to! The Yonchaks are a pleasure to work with and are always quick to respond to any concerns or needs. We will definitely be back next summer for year ten!
Thank you so much for this lovely review!! With guests like you it's easy for us to share the home and location we love most.
Thank you for becoming like second family to us, and for loving the Barking Urchin.
Eastham is one of the loveliest areas on 'Lower' (or outer) Cape Cod, only 3.5 miles wide where we are, so you're never far from either Cape Cod Bay or the National Seashore, stretching for miles and miles on the Oceanside. Beach activities abound, but you can also: Bike the CCRT (Cape Cod Rail Trail)...go hiking...enjoy antiquing...tour a lighthouse or a windmill...gallery-hop...see the Cape Cod Baseball League...go whale watching...shop in Chatham or Provincetown...or just relax and get away from it all.
Other Activities: Wellfleet, Orleans, P-Town, Chatham, Brewster all just minutes away
