Enjoyable family home
Quaint little cottage that is somewhat dated but adds to the ambiance of the whole old cape cod summer home! Nice to have an outdoor shower to wash off the kids and dog after the beach before heading inside for the day. Large living room and separate kids room which was nice to have things separate. Close to dining areas and skull island for arcades/mini gulf/go karts that is walking distance from House. Beach parking was $20/day but if you bring a bike can drop people off then ride back to the beach. Kitchen a little small but fully functional which is nice since most cape cod restaurants are packed in June and July! Area was very quiet and charming. Would definitely come back!
Average stay in Yarmouth. Good For short stints
I stayed at this house for a four day weekend getaway. The house is a bit outdated but the location is pretty good. It's about 20 minutes to the beach walking on 3 minute driving. It's right off Route 28 so convenient to shops and restaurants and about 15 minute drive to Hyannis downtown. For six people it was okay. the Door inside our outdated but overall amenities are good. Dont expect top notch amenities. It sleeps six individuals that includes a pull up bed in the sunroom. We were able to check in earlier which was a added plus. The deck is an added plus to have food or just sit around an enjoy a drink. There is only one bathroom which makes it tough.
Arlind, we love hearing that you enjoyed this home's ideal location on the Cape. The homeowner is in the process of making updates to the home to make it even more comfortable for future guests. We are confident the next guests will have pleasant stays here. Thank you for your feedback! Best, the Evolve Team
Property was not kept up well.
I hate leaving this review. It is wonderful that this family rents their home and we were very excited to be on the Cape and even extended our stay. We knew going into from the pictures that it was going to be a bit rustic. However, it’s in need of repairs. Deck has misssing nails and boards are lifting, lawn wasn’t mowed and I had to do some weeding by the sunroom to walk to the deck/trash. Careful on the bathroom floor as the tiles are broken. Mattress pads were filthy on all beds furniture is very dirty as well. It is a good size home with a ton of personal stuff stored everywhere, we couldn’t use the closests to hang clothing (we were on the Cape for a number of family functions and brought dress clothes) very disappointed and have asked to be reimbursed for my cleaning fee.
Tina, we're deeply sorry your experience fell flat. The homeowner is dedicated to providing the optimal stay for guests who come to visit and would like to deliver the following message:
"Thank you for your feedback. First, I want to apologize for your experience. In response to your comments - I have contacted our lawn care company and property management company to ensure the lawn and property is cared for more consistently. In addition we are replacing the older 2 mattresses and replacing the mattress pads on the newer mattresses. We have purchased a new sofa for the living room. We have cleaned out the closets to allow better storage availability for future guests. This Fall I plan to work with a local flooring company address the concerns regarding the flooring, particularly in the bathroom and I will also make necessary repairs to the outdoor deck."
Thank you for letting us know and for giving us the means to create five-star experiences moving forward. Best, the Evolve Team
Great House for us!
My family and I really enjoyed the house. The window AC's kept it cool, the bbq worked well, the kitchen was small but appropriate for us with lots of stuff but now dish washer. Space to spread out and a generous living room. The neighborhood was nice, biking distance to the beach (drop the family off for free and then ride back to the beach and save the parking fee). Lots to do within walking distance. My only complaint was the $200 cleaning fee...I just flipped through a half a dozen listings to make sure, this is the highest by at least $50 and should be adjusted.
The cottage was only a 15 min walk to the beach and close by to where our family was staying.
I would stay here again. Very clean and just the right amount of room for my family. Great property
