5/5 Excellent

Great location
The house was great. Location was amazing and the amenities worked well. Check in was very late and we sat outside of the house for 2 hours prior to 4pm even though the cleaners had clearly left. I did reach out but was told I had to wait until 4pm Listing shows 2 king beds but there is only 1 - luckily we brought enough queen linen so it worked. House was delightful and the location was amazing.

5/5 Excellent

5/5 Excellent

Cape was great
We so enjoyed the lovely home, enjoyed the fire pit and starry skies. Lots of laughs and absolutely beautiful place to visit, enjoyed exploring the area. Loved Marion's pies!!!

5/5 Excellent

138 Soundview Ave., Chatham,MA
Beautiful home. Lots of privacy and quiet. Great response from New England VR when a tree limb needed to be removed after a big storm. Also they sent out a maintenance person to clean out the smoke detectors after they went in the middle of the night. Only suggestion is to clean the wood chairs of mold around the fire pit. Otherwise it accommodated 6 adults and 2 kids very well. Great rental.
