  • Quick Cape weekend


    Three of us spend two nights at this house, I wouldn't suggest staying there longer. The location is great - quick 5 min drive to downtown Harwich Port and the house is in a quiet area with a large backyard. The earlier 1 star reviews are unfair, the home is exactly as pictured. If you are expecting luxury then you will be disappointed but it's as the price and pictures depict. Just make sure you bring towels, linens and anything you would need to cook because the house is not equipped with that. We had a cooler weekend and it was still hot in the house so expect that as well since there is no AC (also noted in the house description)

  • Just OK - Probably Wouldn't Stay Again


    So honestly I'm torn. The property manager, Rick, was very nice, the location was good and the fact that we could book just a weekend (not week) in the dead of summer was great. They also let us bring our dog and the home was relatively clean, those were all pros! But then there were cons, like... - No Wi-Fi or even basic cable (just some old DVDs) - Home is VERY hot, even on a cool weekend. There is no AC and just two small window fans which we had to install. Not a lot of windows have screens to open and all of the skylight windows are completely uncovered and radiate heat. It was a cool 60's and 70's during our stay but I would NOT recommend this home typically for the summer. I realize not having central AC is common, but a better window AC or fan situation would do wonders - Limited hot water - While home was clean it's very old and could use some TLC; we also found a number of spiders and spiderwebs - No lights in the stairway/upstairs hallway, which is also very small and definitely not to current home build codes - A number of outlets did not work So there you have it. If you want a last-minute getaway for a great deal then go for it. But definitely don't expect too much!

  • Needs updating


    Spider is everywhere throughout the house. No TV and no Wi-Fi which is a necessity these days. Damp and musty smell throughout the house. Since no AC in the house, we cannot open the bedroom windows that were missing screens for ventilation on a hot summer night. The house does not appear to have a heating system. It was cold for one of the evenings when the temperature dropped into the low 60"s. We ended up staying at a hotel for the night. We had to unclog the tub drain which was filling up during a shower.

    A tear down. Old and dilapidated. Better than camping though. Functional. Cleaning fee ridiculous.
