6/4/2007 Hyannisport Hideaway

A brilliant base for a family holiday to the Cape. Very close to the Nantucket ferry, whale watching boats from Barnstable and many beautiful beaches but so quiet and peaceful to return to in the evenings. The house is very comfortably furnished and thoughtfully equipped making it easy to take care of and entertain a family away from home.


Also within easy driving distance, Hyannis Main Street and Mall offer a great variety of shopping, bars and restaurants. Finally, we found the whole booking, payment and check in and out process really straightforward - thanks Julia!

My wife, Inge, and I came over from Denmark with our grown-up son and Inge's mother and stayed at Julia and Chuck's house in Hyannisport. It was simply a fantastic vacation and the house had everything one needs to live luxuriously. The whole rental was done over the net and every aspect (including our payment by credit card) went without a hitch. Julia and Chuck met us when we arrived and gave us a few pointers, and then we were left on our own in a house that contained every vacation and household amenity imaginable -- all brand new, or nearly so.

We really had an excellent vacation at Hyannisport Hideaway, and I highly reccommend it for anyone considering a week or two on the Cape. We hope to come back someday.

6/19/2007 Bayview Getaway

We spent a week at Bayview Cottage at the end of the shoulder season (just before the crowds). We loved the central location which allowed us to go in any direction without a lot of Pre-Planning. The home was
well furnished. It was convenient and spacious for sleeping.

My husband and I loved the house and location. I'm always a bit nervous when traveling 1000 miles to a rental vacation home, hoping that everything is in order when we arrive.


The owners provided us with a lot of information prior to our visit and we especially appreciated having several contact numbers in case there had been a problem. I'm happy to say everything was perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We always travel with our Golden Retriever, Morgan, and he had the best time!

There are so many dog friendly places to visit on the Cape - the National Seashore, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, Provincetown and even picnicking with him at a great lobster place, Moby Dick's, near Wellfleet.

At the end of a long day of "vacationing", he felt very comfortable in his new surroundings, curling up in front of the fireplace like he always lived here. We were very happy with all the extras provided, from kitchen supplies to recreational items (beach chairs, mats, etc). It was most like a home away from home of all the vacation rentals we have had.

4/20/2007 Bayview Getaway

Despite the weather - which was truly awful - we had a GREAT time. We were especially grateful for the Playstation and 2 TVs as we had rain every single day of our stay and our 4 children made good use of them.

We managed to see a good deal of the Cape and particularly enjoyed the chowder at Captain Parker's, the sandwiches at Common Ground and everything we tried at Sparkys.


For breakfast, The Pancake Man was disappointing but the little French cafe on Main St was a real fine - great coffe and pastries. Hopefully we'll be back and spend some time on the beaches which looked spectacular through our rain-splattered windscreen!

4/1/2007 Bayview Getaway

We loved staying at Bayview Getaway. The house was very comfortable, well stocked, and in central location. The three bedrooms and two bathrooms gave everyone plenty of room, and the living area was comfy. There is a nice deck, and the dead end street is excellent for small kids and dogs. We could easily walk into town, to the beach, or to the harbor. We were able to explore the entire Cape from the house.

Our dogs also give it an A+ because it backs up to a great preserve for walking. The owners provide great area information about beaches, lighthouses, activities for kids, and places to eat. We relied on their info for the whole trip and weren't disapppointed! We would definitely stay there again!

5/19/2007 Lewis Bay Retreat

Dear Julia, Chuck and Hamilton,

Thank you for meeting us on arrival, your lovely home has been a real home away from home. Little touches, such as the beach bag, were much appreciated - you really have thought of and supplied everything we would have wanted.

Our first visit to Cape Cod has exceeded all our expectations. We came to see the wildlife and walk the beaches - 'whale watching' should be made compulsory for all visitors! - highly recommend the tour from Barnstable harbour as its only a short drive home after a real adrenaline high.


Enjoyed evening strolls through the bogs at the end of the street - full of songbirds, rabbits and other friendly critters. Watching a pair of ospreys fishing near Eastham was also a great thrill. Just chilling here has been easy.

We leave with fond memories of or visit to the Cape thanks to your great hospitality.

Mary and Stuart, Epsom, England



5/11/2007 Lewis Bay Retreat

Dear Julia and Chuck,

We have had a fantastic time here at the Cape, made particularly comfortable by the amenities provided by Lewis Bay Retreat.

It is very apparent the thoughtfulness and care you have taken in preparing this home for guests. The "Guest Info" provided gave us a very good start to exploring our new surroundings (Palio pizzas are superb.)

Thank you ever so much for making our little holiday here so memorable.

4/29/2007 Lewis Bay Retreat

We had a wonderful time at the Lewis Bay Retreat, it was so nice to have a "home" to come to after exploring all day. The Cape was wonderful this time of the year, as there were no crowds and luckily the weather was beautiful! The house was exactly as described and we were very happy with the entire experience!

Brenda Y. , River Falls, WI


5/20/2007 Hyannisport Hideaway

We stayed in the property May 2007 and found it absolutely delightful.It is exactly as Julia(the owner) describes it and is in a perfect location to explore the Cape or just laze on the nearby beaches.It has every amenity you could possibly require and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.

I will admit to being somewhat doubtfull regarding handing over personal details direct to someone I have never met but Julia was a pleasure to deal with and a great help not only with the booking process but with any queries we had.
We would not hesitate to stay there again in the future and fully intend to return.
Bill and Jenny Nightingale, Carlisle, United Kingdom


4/30/2007 Hyannisport Hideaway

We had a wonderful time, despite the unseasonably bad weather! The house was gorgeous and the owners had thought of everything to make the stay so homely and enjoyable. Would love to go back to try out the beaches.

01/28/07 Lewis Bay Retreat

Dear Julia,

Thank you so much for making us feel so welcome at Lewis Bay Retreat. We had a wonderful time and had the most amazing weather. We can highly recommend your vacation home to everyone - especially to vacationers with children and dogs.
We also appreciate that we were able to bring our dog.

  Cape Cod Sunrise

Jia, our boxer girl, loved the vacation and enjoyed her walks through the preservation area. We really appreciated how dog-friendly the Cape was (starting Sep. 15th).

Provincetown actually had a dog-festival - it was worth the trip. Mid-week our sister-in-law and our 2 1/2 year-old niece from Germany joined us and they loved their stay.
We really felt at home at Lewis Bay Retreat and are planning to return in the near future.

All our best,

2/24/2007 Hyannisport Hideaway

We stayed February 24-25 and used the house as a base for a few of us who were running in the Hyannis Half Marathon. We couldn't have been happier with the experience and were able to take advantage of the off season rates, so it ended up being much cheaper than a hotel.

The house is accurately depicted on your Web site (although we were surprised as it was much bigger than we had envisioned it). Everything was spotlessly clean and the kitchen is a cook's dream.

All of the little touches you have thought of -- from condiments to hair driers to towels and linens -- made packing for our weekend away very easy. Best of all for people who had run 13.1 miles were the incredibly comfortable beds!

Thanks again. We hope to be back very soon.

Dave, Burlington, MA

10/24/06 Hyannisport Hideaway
What a wonderful long weekend we spent at your beautiful home! Cozy, comfortable, and spotlessly clean! The "guest info" book was a great help in finding places to eat and take long walks with our dog. She just loved all the beaches and parks! But our favorite things were the well-equipped kitchen, top-quality linens, and BIG coffee mugs. You can bet we'll be back!

Dear Julia:

This is the first time we rented a vacation home and to our delight it was the right choice. Your home is both pleasing to the eye and a relaxing get away. We were pleasantly surprised by the many amenities provided for your guests far and above what one would expect. It is evident that a lot of thought and care has gone into your home. Many thanks to you and your staff for a great stay and for making us feel at home in Hyannis. 
Bayview Getaway

Just to say a big thank you for the cottage. It was really cosy and very
well equipped and very clean. We just loved the Cape and of course the cottage was so well situated and in easy reach of everything. Just a small comment - a line to hang laundry on in the basement would be useful. Other than that everything was extremly well organised & Julia even phoned on our arrival to check everything was o.k which we thought was a really good touch and made us feel that we were getting an excellent service.
Would thoroughly recommend this property. Enjoy!!

10/15/06 Bayview Getaway

Great house the place looks great outside and was even better inside. Nicely furnished and real clean. Even WiFi service in the house. Would bring my family here again in a Minute. Thanks for everything Julia & Chuck we had a great time and enjoyed the house much.

Dear Julia and Chuck,

What a great time we had! The weather was rainy but we still kept busy. My grand children ages 1 and 2 loved the beach. I spent a few hours alone just reading and watching the boats.I can't say enough about the house. It was clean, well stocked with whatever we needed. The beds were very comfortable.I loved the yard and the short walk to the beach and ferry. The only thing I would have liked is a cookie sheet to bake.Looking forward to coming next year.
  Debra Hofmann, Oxford, Ct.


10/10/06 Hyannisport Hideaway

This vacation home was even better than expected! It will be tough to find a better house to stay at.

Everything was perfectly clean, designed and equipped - just like home.

I will recommend this place to everybody I know! 
  Maike Alberti, Boston,MA

08/18/06 Hyannisport Hideaway

We stayed at the Hyannisport Hideaway in early August, and were extremely happy with our choice. We've rented houses for over 15 years, and the Hideaway was the most well-equipped house we've ever experienced. Our 8 yr.old twins loved the beach toys, games, books, and boogie boards, while we loved not having to pack beach chairs, towels, and other cooking/grocery essentials. The house provided easy access to other Cape locations and included lots of tourist info. and maps to help plan our days. The house definitely added to the quality of our trip.


09/26/06 Lewis Bay Retreat
Hi - a fabulous 3 days were had by the 6 of us - a beautiful home with all we wanted and well located for easy access to everything. We will be back!

09/18/06 Lewis Bay Retreat

This is a beautiful place to say and it is situated in the best part of Cape Cod.

Hyannis really is the heart of cape cod and is in near reach of everything on the Caoe including whale watching and boats to the island. The house is very well looked after and extremley clean. Overall a very nice stay in a very nice house in a great area. Highly recommended.

09/04/06  Bayview Getaway

Although our stay at Bayview was marred by family illness, we found the property to be exactly as described.We especially appreciated the following: the kitchen stocked with basic supplies, the convenience of the washer and dryer,and the beautiful bed linens and towels.

08/30/06 Bayview Getaway

Dear Julia & family.

We had a wonderful two weeks staying at your property. The drive from Boston airport was only about 70 miles and was very straightforward. The weather was superb and the house was excellent - we particularly liked the spaciousness of the bedrooms and the fact that there was a bathroom upstairs and down. Hyannis is fabulous - there is so much to do for all the family and a great range of restaurants. We enjoyed being within walking distance of a beach and very close to the harbour and town (could walk to these quite easily - about 15 mins walk). All restaurants we visited were great but a few that deserve a mention are Tugboats (5 mins walk from house and great views of harbour), The Lighthouse Inn at Dennis (on seafront), Hearth n Kettle (excellent menu and great for kids). For casual drinking the Black Cat pub by the harbour was excellent and they served good food as well. Thank you again.
 Rhona Barrow, Woking, Surrey UK

08/24/06 Lewis Bay Retreat

The whole booking process was dealt with speedily, efficiently and in a friendly manner. The house is in a great location - Hyannis has plenty to offer and as the house is within walking distance of the shops, bars and restaurants, it meant we could leave the car at home. We felt safe at all times - as first time visitors to the USA we couldn't quite believe our luck. It was a real home from home! Thank you so much for your attention to detail.
  Sandra Grayson, Kent, UK
08/19/06 Lewis Bay Retreat

The home was everything promised and more. The weather could not have been better and the whole family took advantage of the outdoor seating for many meals and playtime. The fenced-in yard provided a safe place for my two young daughters to play without any worry. We spent many afternoons at the beach right down the road. It wasn't very crowded and the calm water was perfect for my 18 month old. Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the home to others. We are even thinking of renting it again next summer!!

What a wonderful week at your awesome house! Your house had everything plus more, we loved your private back yard, and the close distance to the beaches.
Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Julia and Chuck,

Your house was fantastic, so close to everything, 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach, or 10 minutes to Hyannis and the docks. I was amazed at how well you have it stocked, its like being at home. You really made for a Great!!! Vacation, Sam had a good time as well. Only thing missing was an outside shower (an old cape thing). This is one home people should love to rent, no questions. Thank you again.


Dave,Bonnie,Brendan,Kevin,Mollie and of course Sam
P.S the restaurant Salty's had GREAT FOOD and was reasonably priced.


07/22/06 Bayview Getaway 
Dear Julia and family,

What a week we had! The house is adorable and so well equipped - you thought of everything. We had perfect weather. The whale watch, the beaches, biking, and mini-golf were a blast. Kids loved the go carts in Harwich. We had a great meal at Salty's - the food was good, the athmosphere relaxed and casual (bathing suits and T shirts are proper dress).

It was a relaxing vacation to say the least!

Thank you.

Dear Julia and Chuck,

What a wonderful week we had! The weater was great despite one day of rain out of entire week. No complaints with that, though. Took the kids to the Zooquarium that day and they had a ball.

Our days at the beach were so relaxing. Tugboats was our favorite place to eat and only a short stroll from the house.

Your house is immaculate and filled with all the conveniences of home. It was more than any of us expected!!! It was so nice to not have to pack our linens!

The house is perfectly located to everything we enjoy doing at the Cape. Morning walks to the harbor were so enjoyable. It was fun to watch the boats come and go. Main St., Hyannis has a lot of neat shops to visit.

We took a seal watch tour out of Chatham and saw many seals! Our 3 children loved playing mini-golf, visiting the arcades and driving the go-carts in Harwich (after full days at the beach, of course!! :)

Thank you again for meeting all our needs!!!

WONDERFUL!!! The location was fabulous - peaceful and quiet, yet all the activity in Hyannis was an easy walk/ride away. The house was terrific - spotlessly clean, incredibly comfortable beds and full of amenities (beach pass! wireless internet! playstation!). Thank you Julia and Chuck for a GREAT week on the Cape!!!!

Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful home with us! The location was perfect - quiet and relaxing, yet all the activity and Hyannis an easy walk/ride away. We especially enjoed walking down to the beach to watch July 4th fireworks! You gave us all the comforts of home and then some! We had a wonderful time on the Cape and your home was
truly fabulous!

Julia and Chuck,

Over the year we have stayed in many condos and houses, but none have been better equipped and stocked... It feels like home. Our family had a fun filled 4th of July week here. Days were filled at the beach, bkiking, and a great badminton tournament. Nights were filled with cards and Beer - a great combination.

07/01/06 Bayview Getaway

We had a great time despite the rain. The house was clean, cozy and well taken care of. Thanks for the use of bikes!

We recommend the Cape Cod rail trail - we took it from Orleans and over to Coast Guard beach. We also enjoyed the beach pass- Craigville was our favorite. Other recommendations are Four Seas Ice Cream in Centerville, Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, seafood at Baxter's (a short walk), and the aquarium at Woods Hole. Thanks for the use of Cape Cod Street Map and guide books! We had a wonderful time and will try to be back soon!! Once the weather cleared up, we were good to go!!

Beach Pass is great - we recommend Joshua Pond! The Cape Cod Street Atlas is really helpful.

We had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing and though the weather wasn't great, it wasn't too hot. Once we found the knife sharpener, we were all set in the kitchen. We had everything we needed and then some.

I was there over the Thanksgiving weekend with 5 of my good friends. What a great place to spend the holiday. The accomadations were first rate. All of our needs were met. I couldn't have asked for any better.

First of all everything that we needed was already there, towels, sheets, cooking needs, utentsils, cups, drinking glasses, wine glasses, dvd player, cd player, television, the list is too long to include everything. The furniture and beds were very comfortable. The fireplace was fantastic. Leave it to say anything you would need to have a pleasant and comfortable stay was there.

While we were there to spend time with friends and didn't take advantage of the reasons most people visit Cape Cod it is well situated for anyone who wishes to.

We really had a great time and I highly recommend staying there.

Thank you so much for our stay in your lovely lovely house! It's perfect. So clean and tidy. You have thought of everything. It made a real difference not having to bring it all. We will definitely be recommending it to friends. A lovely location with many beaches all around. We loved Corporation Beach in Dennis. We enjoyed eating out near here and also using the BBQ here at the house.

Thank you.

06/06/06 Lewis Bay Retreat

Julia & Chuck provide a wonderfully warm & inviting home in a great location on the Cape. They take care of everything, including sheets, towels (even beach towels!), beach chairs, BBQ grill, coolers, more dishes/glassware than we could ever use.

We walked to the beach and to get the high speed ferry to Martha's Vineyard, so no parking worries. We had the pleasure of meeting Julia & Chuck, and they really want you to feel it is your home for the week. Also, the recently renovated kitchen was beautiful.

We brought our laptops and "worked from home" a couple of days, with the high-speed wireless access - a great amenity, in my opinion. Even our dogs had a great stay. They had a hose to wash them off after playing in the bay. And Chuck brought over some puppy shampoo to clean them up...how thoughtful is that?! The washer and dryer in the basement came in handy many times.

Not sure what else to say...we loved the place!

Thank you so much to Julia and Chuck for making our holiday so fantastic. The house and garden are wonderful and EVERYTHING has been catered for even down buckets and spades for the children. We didn't even need to bring our beach towels and so could spend more money down the Cape Cod Mall since we had more luggage space!

  Old Church on the way to beach from our Cape Cod vacation rental

The beaches are wonderful and the scenery amazing. We all fell in love with Hyannis Port and can highly recommend it anyone wishing to discover New England and Cape Cod. It rained on the odd day but there is so much to do it didn't matter. We met some charming American families and we hope to return next year. WE LOVED IT.

We could not have asked for such a perfect home and everything available for us all. We loved staying here.Thanks again Julia and Chuck and see you next year.

P.S. I loved the Cape Cod Mall!

05/28/06 Lewis Bay Retreat

As we left Boston airport having been delayed three hours in London while they fixed an engine, we drove through the rain and fog, anxious that the house we had rented in Lewis Bay would be OK, the car radio reporter told us the worst storms since the 1930s were on their way and to expect a wall of water to hit the area. It began to look like Cornwall might have been a better bet. The house was all we could have hoped for, bright charming and comfortable.

During the storm on the first Sunday we relaxed and enjoyed the 101 personal touches the Julia & Chuck made to the house. The small library of books from Poe to murder mystery to maps to a sound system, TV and games that eased the jet lag and helped us forget the rain outside. With a good sized kitchen fully equipped we didn’t need to venture far even though eating out was easy with too many places to choose from and even pizza delivery if we wanted.

As the week went by the weather improved and the sun was out by the Tuesday when we drove up to Provincetown where the Pilgrim Fathers went ashore. We went on to enjoy all of Nantucket Bay and Cape Cod; Sandwich, Chatham, Falmouth and of course Hyannis we didn’t get round to visit Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket Island but there’s always the next time. The beaches were stunning as is Julia’s & Chuck’s House, thank you for doing such an excellent job and letting us lead the good life for a week.

Dear Julia and Family,

Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation home. Coming to your home was the perfect ending to our already great trip to New England. We felt right at home! Since we are traveling with a 3 months old, it was nice to see the house had everything we needed and more. We can't wait to come back!

Thank you again.

What a wonderful place! My boyfriend and I had two other couples join us for a "Fall Getaway". Although the weather was miserable (not much you can do about that) we made the best of it and spent a fair amount of time at the house. We enjoyed the very well equipped kitchen, cooking "comfort food" for the gang. The TV has plenty of channels and we enjoyed doing a puzzle on the coffee table. I brought wine classes and martini glasses, but didn't need them as the house came "fully equipped". I brought plastic wrap and aluminum foil, again, not needed as it was already provided. The linens and towels are high quality and luxurious while the home is comfortable and welcoming. We loved having a fire in the fire place on those cold blustery evenings. We can't wait to come back!

05/30/06 Hyannisport Hideaway

We had a really great time at Cape Cod, in part because of the accomodations at the Hyannisport Hideaway. The location and amenities were wonderful. And Julia is a terrifc person to deal with. This place is highly recommended.

04/30/06 Hyannisport Hideaway

We had a lovely stay at your beautiful home and couldn't fault the area. The weather was good and the area very pretty. This was the perfect antidote to the noise and bustle of New York.

Thank you from a very happy family.

04/28/06 Hyannisport Hideaway

I was so worried about finding the perfect place to stay on Cape Cod and not only was HyannisPort the perfect location on Cape Cod, but this was the perfect house to stay in. This is an EXCELLENT choice for your stay on Cape Cod!! You can't find better accomodations. The owners thought of everything...right down to the beach toys for kids, books and games, beach chairs, laundry room supplies, and the list goes on!

The house was immaculate and had every amenity of home. Super location in quite neighborhood, but with quick/easy access to the beaches and town. I would definitely stay here again.

Kayla, Alexandria, LA



03/18/06 Hyannisport Hideaway

Thank you so much for everything! The effort and care you put into the house is truly appreciated and delightful! It was wonderful to have such a warm house to spend a week in, getting us all out of various busy and chaotic "city" life!

Thank you so much again - we hope to be back.

12/28/05 Hyannisport Hideaway

The Hideway was a great Christmas getaway for my family and I. Perfect accomodations for my parents, two brothers, me, and my husband. Cozy - but private enough that we didn't feel we were always on top of each other. For a family that likes to cook, the kitchen is a huge bonus... we made a full holiday dinner - Mom even baked her cookies there. Our only wish - a vaccuum cleaner! Even though there is a housekeeping service which comes in before and after you're there, we like to keep things neat while we're there. (Esp. with Xmas tree needles, or sand in the summer). We'll definitely be back - thanks Julia for all your help. The place is obviously well cared-for and all guest will appreciate that.

Amy P., Brooklyn, NY


11/22/05 Hyannisport Hideaway

Since this was the first time renting a home over the internet, I was a little nervous, however, I couldn't have picked a more comfortable, warm, fully equipped, inviting home. The owners have gone to great lengths to ensure the comfort of their guests (ie, a supply of new toothbrushes in the bathroom in case you forgot yours). We plan on having our "Quilt Weekends" here for many years to come.

Helene E., Foxboro, Massachusetts



11/02/05 Hyannisport Hideaway

Your home is as welcoming and beautiful and it appeared on the website. We were so comfortable there and had such nice long chats in the inviting kitchen. We entertained newly found family and it was the perfect spot for it. We were all so at ease in our surroundings. Early morning bike rides and sunset strolls along Craigville Beach - not to mention the central location on the Cape were all added bonuses. The entire transaction was efficient and professional and we hope to come back next year. Thank you for sharing with us.

Marcy & Debbie, San Diego, CA

I was terribly pleased with ALL transactions in regards to renting the house, recieving confirmation in a prompt manner. I found everything to be done very professionally.

Julia and Chuck,

We had a great time this week and enjoyed the great house. It felt more like we were staying with a friend as opposed to simply renting a home with all the helpful tips and comments.

You thought of everything from the BBQ to the gold box full of pamphlets. We found many things to do from the use of the gold box.

Dear Julia and Chuck,

We really enjoyed our week here. Your house is so beautiful - we're going to try some of your ideas at home! We spend our days enjoying the local beaches, we especially liked Kalmus Beach. The more sheltered side was perfect for the kids.

It was such a blessing to not have to bring our own linens, beach chairs, grill, etc. (If we had to - we wouldn't be sure if the dog or the children would have to be tied to the roof). Thanks for the doggie blankets and the waterproof mattress covers - you really have thought of everything. Duffy really liked the red checkered blankets.

The chocolates and wine and dog biscuits were a very nice welcome. Unfortunately, the Chirardellis started us on a slippery downward chocolate slope!

Thank you for your hospitality and sharing your wonderful home with us.

Dear Julia and Family,

We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. The house had everything we needed and we felt comfortable and at home the entire time. The location was perfect and the short walk to the beach was most appealing. We look forward to our next visit!

The house was well appointed and comfortable. The pictures and description provided give one a good understanding of what to expect. I especially liked having linens and basic necessities supplied.

The house is well located for long walks to the Hyannis beaches, downtown Hyannis and through the West Yarmouth neighborhood. It's also within walking distance of the island ferries and is a nice central location for exploring the rest of Cape Cod by car.

The rental process worked flawlessly from initial application to the welcoming truffles and phone message, and self addressed stamped envelope that made the key return process absolutely painless. The resident beach pass provided made exploring all of the Barnstable beaches trouble free.

Many thanks.

Bayview Getaway was the best cottage I have ever rented. It came with everything you could possibly need and was a terrific location for hoping on the Ferrys for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket and a short drive to all the cute towns to shop. Minutes from Hyannis. We also loved Chatham and Sandwich. We had a problem with one of the beds and Julia and Chuck broght a brand new mattress over that same day. You really feel that your comfort is very important to them. I would refer all of my friends to this place. Had a great time.

This house is every thing it claims to be and more!! Julia and Chuck have thought of everything you need for a wonderful vacation. On a quiet dead end street relaxing is very easy. We had a great stay and would recommend this house to anyone. Julia and Chuck- thank you for a super vacation!!!

Dear Julia and Chuck,

Thank you so much for opening your home to us. We all had a wonderful time here. The weather was perfect and we made the most of it!! The National Seashore - Head of Meadow was our favorite. Waves and empty beaches - perfect! Our pup Dusty has been sleeping soundly every night. It was great to be able to be in such a dog friendly environment. She came with us everywhere.

P-town was perfect - as always. Such a fun town. Staying here made it so easy - you really have thought of everything.

We were all very comfy here. Thanks so much for the chocolates and dog treats. What a nice surprise. Thank you again for a memorable vacation.

Dear Julia and Chuck,

Thank you for a wonderful week of lazy days at the beach, beautiful weather, views of the harbor, kayak adventures, sail boat excursions and happy evenings making dinner, playing games, and - in one case - enjoying dog biscuits.

The house was the perfect mix of a home and a beach cottage, and we loved our family vacation here. Homer especially sends his thanks. He loved the walk to the beach, the friends he met there, and the chance to swim every day.

We're very grateful for all the thoughtfullness - from beach towels to beach chairs - and wish you very best!

Dear Julia,
We have had the most fantastic week. Your house is absolutely perfect, a real home from home - we could not have hoped for more! The situation in Hyannis was great, very peaceful but yet within easy walking distance of the beach and restaurants. Our favourite meal was on the last day at Alberto's - superb food and service.

We have enjoyed trips to Martha's Vineyard, Heritage Museum at Sandwich, Chatham, Falmouth, fire museum at Brewsetr and a great day at Water Wizz in Wareham.

  Cape Cod Holiday Rental near East Beach

Our favourite day was the whale trip from Provincetown. It was amazing, the whales came right up alongside the boat and sprayed us from their blowholes!

We had some great meals in town - Schooners and Fresh Ketch were our favourites. We also had a great evening listening to the band in the park.

We loved the convenience of the beach at the end of the road and it was great to sit and watch all the boat tours going past. We went on the Duck Tour which gave us a few laughs!

We hope to come back again and enjoy the hospitality the Cape and especially Lewis Bay Retreat has to offer.

Best wishes

Dear Chuck and Julia,
Thank you so much for sharing your home with us for our Cape Cod holiday.

We arranged our accomodation at Hyannis Hideaway more than two months in advance; therefore, had much anticipation and excitement leading up to our arrival. As we got closer in our twelve hour drive we began to get nervous about what to expect. We had sent off a cheque to someone we had never seen. What if this place doesn't exist? Not only did it exist, but it was most beautiful.

The interent pictures of your home were exactly the way the home is set up. Cleanliness and attention to detail is certainly at the forefront of the owners.

Mother-in-law who flew in for a few days was very impressed with all of the modern appliances and comforts of home. She was very happy with the choice of our Hyannis Hideaway. The kitchen and dining area made for enjoyable Cape Cod cooking and conversations. Cooking in the big kitchen did not seem to be a chore like at home. We actually enjoyed our home cooked meals much more than the evenings we went out! The living room area is a comfy, cozy place to unwind after long days. After a few night caps on the deck, retiring the the airconditioned bedrooms was an added pleasure. The boys were very intigued by and raced home to the outdoor shower after our days at the Beach! The nautical theme throughout the home adds to the Cape Cod experience.

It was the most enjoyable way to spend our 18th Wedding Anniversary with our boys. We hope to return to Cape Cod again and will plan early to ensure a vacancy the Hyannis Hideaway. We really appreciated the bikes available in the garage for our rides to the convenience store for a morning paper and for Julia's extra efforts with suggestions and ideas, adding to our great holiday!

Julia and Chuck,

Our stay here at Bayview has been great and we are sad to see it come to an end. We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled up to the house and just as pleased with the inside.

You thought of everything we could possibly need and more, the home was well equipped with everything. Each day was filled with things to do, we especially enjoyed the whale watching cruise and deep sea fishing on the Helen H out of Hyannis. We caught enough fluke for several nights worth of dinner. We also enjoyed spending cool nights on the deck and grilling dinner.

Our 2 dogs, Lexy and Stimpy also felt welcome. (Thanks for the treats.) We would like to thank you for opening your home to us.

Dear Julia,

Thank you so much for the use of your house in Cape Cod. It was perfect. Enough space for everyone not to get on each other's nerves, enough insulation... *One hopes* that the neighbours didn't hear us yelling at each other,(3 teenage girls what does one expect), a great deck where we took our meals daily, AMERICAN TV (if you don't live outside of america you don't know how exciting this can be), deck chairs that sit in the sand at sea shelled beaches, resident pass for Barnstable Beaches, quiet evening walks to the water down the street, watching the ferries to and fro from the Islands, bunny rabbits that welcome you when you arrive, A/C, an incredibly well stacked kitchen with so many things that I now want to get, and just a wonderful place filled with beautiful things that we were able to call home for a week. It was the perfect family vacation.

Keys are in the mail, summer is almost done, have a great year.

Thanks again
 Arleen "Joe" B., Quebec, Canada

Julia and Chuck - great well equipped house. A few good trips - boat trip up Bass River, Plymouth Plantation plus Mayflower 2.

Tugboats easy to walk to and good view of harbor, special meal at Alberto's on Main St. Craigville Beach is the best! Enjoy yourselves.

Julia and Chuck -

Thanks for everything - we really enjoyed our stay. The house had all the right amenities - we enjoyed grilling dinner and loved the book selection provided in the house.

Ethan enjoyed catching critters (eels, minnows, crabs, clams, etc) in the little inlet 2 blocks east of Bayview beach. We had a very productive whale watch out of Provincetown.

We loved the Old Yarmouth Inn and also enjoyed Spark Fish in Brewster. We also had a nice Italian meal in Hyannis. Ethan developed a love for miniature golf - we enjoyed Thunder Falls and Pirates Cove in particular.

The guest book was really helpful too! And the beach. Thanks again - supplies in the shed were perfect. Zooquarium was a hit too!

It was a perfect week! The house and yard was perfect, we got to enjoy the deck and yard. The beach was wonderful! I got to spend quality time with my grandson and my son and daughter-in-law. It was a peaceful week for my family. My youngest son and daughter spent a day with us during the week. My daughter spent Sunday with us and my youngest son was able to spend time with us on Tuesday.

My daughter-in-law thought I did good. The house was much more than she expected. We loved the kitchen! We spent alot of time together in the kitchen because my son did all the cooking and we always seem to gather in the kitchen and dining room together when we are at home.

My daughter-in-law wants to make it a yearly trip now. We all enjoyed being together in your home. I can't thank you enough.

The weather, the house, the beaches, everything was perfect! We had a great time, my grandson and I.

Julia and Chuck,

Thank you so much for providing everything for a wonderful and relaxing two weeks! We have been all over Hyannis and other parts of the Cape. Burberry enjoyed the swims at the beach at night and her trip to Nantucket! Thank you for being so helpful.

We loved the house!!! It was really perfect. I wanted to let you know that the two twin beds as a king worked great and the memory foam made it VERY comfortable!!! The sheets were also AMAZING!!!

We really enjoyed our two weeks at your house. The house was great with everything we needed to enjoy our stay! We also loved being so close to everything! It was great being able to walk downtown.

We LOVED the house. Thanks for everything! We hope to visit again soon!

Julia and Chuck,

Thank you for opening up this home to our family. We enjoyed staying here so much. All amenities and more were there for our use; you were very considered and
thorough in providing for our needs. We especially appreciated the typed up information book about the beaches and this area and the beach pass! Sandy Neck was our favorite! We spent each day exploring the different beaches and the areas. We did not have enough time to do everything we wanted but just going to beaches was wonderful. My 15 year old nephew Val thought "the bed was very comfortable" and he liked the "paintings and artifacts". My 7 years old daughter liked touching the tassel on the front curtain, and the TV. Our dog Rosie appreciated being with us and she enjoyed the beach as well.

Thank you for a very special vacation and your kindness.

Thank you so much for the use of your lovely home. We had a great time. The house is wonderful. You have done a terrific job of stocking everything one can possibly need. It was so nice having a few staples to use... I just can't say how thankful we are to have been able to stay in such a nice, clean place. It made all the difference in our vacation. We enjoyed having the bikes, AC, the W/D...just everything.

I know it is very difficult to rent sight unseen from a stranger. I was a bit worried, but I pretty much said whatever happens, happens! What a relief it was though to arrive and see how clean and well kept your home was. It definitely surpassed our expectations. You have been so professional, and have provided such excellent service. My husband and I were amazed! You have thought of everything, down to the tool to adjust the bike seats! I told all my friends on the Cape. They were amazed too. Most rentals don't provide all those details. Biking to Hyannisport, early in the morning, and grabbing a cup of coffee at the country store was great fun...beautiful views! You made that possible!

Thank you so very much for sharing your beautiful house and for thinking of all of the wonderful small things that make the stay so much more comfortable. We loved the beaches. Ben and Anne couldn't get enough the ocean when it was a little chilly for us adults. It was a great family escape!

We really appreciated the lengths you went to in the hopes of making our stay enjoyable. We have stayed at many different places and yours is really one of the best. That is the case for us merely because you seemed to really care about what we might have needed. So thank you for that. We hope to return one day.

Have a great rest of your summer.

Thank you Julia for providing such a pleasant atmosphere for our vacation on the Cape. It can sometimes be a little scary when renting something without seeing it first. We were not disappointed.

Your thoughtfulness was much appreciated and your home so warm and welcoming. Our every need was met and we enjoyed our short walks to the beach and trips around the area. I hope we can come back and stay at your house sometime again real soon.

Thank you for making your vacation house so nice. I know you put a lot of heart into making our vacation special. Despite the weather we managed to do and see a bunch. From the first night we got here, we watched some awesome fireworks right from out deck, the seeing the cool sand dunes at "P. Town". We went to Boston for a day. We did walk the whole way of the Freedom Trail! We went to Foxboro to see the new "Patriots" stadium 2005 champion of Super Bowl! A must see for the men. (I just got a great meal out of that trip!) Despite the weather, we still had a great time. Now It's time to go back to Home Sweet Home to OHIO!

Thanks again!

Julia and Chuck,

Thank you both, we've all had a wonderful stay, our first on Cape Cod.

We really appreciate all the many extras which definitely made the difference.

We came to celebrate our silver wedding anniversary and left with our daughter ordering her wedding dress from the local shop.

We had a super time and are sad to be back to reality. The house was fantastic and the nicest self catering accommodation we have ever rented, thank you so much for all the thought and care you put in to our holiday.

The house was perfect, set in an ideal location not too far to walk to town. The many personal touches, especially the beach gear and cool box. We loved BBQing and eating in the garden too. The first of many trips we hope!

Hope to come again soon.

Thank you very much for your little touches which make American hospitality so wonderful! We had a competition to see if there was anything you hadn't provided and we couldn't find a thing! We have had a lovely week here and are very sad to be returning home. The bike ride around Matha's Vineyard will stay with us forever.

Your house is wonderfully welcoming. Everything was so well thought out and we really appreciated the wine and choccies! I have passed your details on to people at work so I hope this brings you some rentals.

We had a wonderful holiday here. The accommodation is spotless and very homely. The house is very well equipped. every effort was taken to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. The beach is walking distance and very safe for children. This was a great base to explore from. We reccommend the bike hire at Martha's Vineyard!

You have a lovely home here. Thanks for a great holiday!

Beautiful house! Felt more like a home than a vacation rental. Everything was "cozy", the couches, linens, towels & especially the bed.

Secluded, yet a short bike ride to main street & cute shops, mini golf & food.

We had a great vacation, highly recommend it & can't wait to come back again.

Thank you for a great getaway! We enjoyed our stay very much. The house is well equipped and everything is of a very high quality. The neighborhood is exactly what we hoped for - very quiet and residential, while so close to everything fun - Craigville Beach, restaurants, shopping. We enjoyed the lovely backyard and the view of the little fountain :) We hope to return again!

Thanks a bunch!

Thank you for a lovely stay! The house is so well situated - close to the town but in a very tranquil location, and we could take day trips the the rest of Cape Cod easily. We walked to the beaches next to Bayview - it was great. The water was warm, clean, and so gentle and there is a nice large stretch of the sand. And it's very private and quiet. Nothing beats a quiet morning on an empty beach in a middle of a summer!

Thank you for your hospitality. We hope to return next year.

We found the house and the neighborhood to be quiet comfortable and were surprised by the large number of "extras" that Julia has thoughtfully included to make the vacation experience more personal. The beaches in the area we found to be a bit lacking and ended up driving further than we had anticipated but all the better as we explored and found new places we had never been to before.

Julia & Chuck,

Your house is truly a second home at the beach! We didn't have to "run to the store" for anything, and the location is close to everything. Whether you like to swim the beaches on the ocean side or the bay side, it's a great location. We had a wonderful. relaxing week and loved staying in your beautiful beach home.

Sincerely, The Mercier family, Granby, MA 
08/25/04 Lewis Bay Retreat
Thank you for opening your home to us. It was a great, relaxing experience. The house is amazingly well-equipped. From the appropriate glassware (it's kind of depressing to drink wine out of a tumbler - but not to worry you had red AND white wine glasses!) to the featherbed to the corn dishes w/matching corn holders. We were impressed from walking in the door to the moment we sadly left our vacation behind. This was all of our first Cape rental and it was a fantastic experience!

For opening your home, the wonderful amenities and your kindness and help throughout the process, I thank you! Your home was the perfect location for our memorable, relaxing week.

Thank you so much for renting your house to us! It was in a perfect location and close to everything we wanted to do. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, it was the best of both worlds. All the amenities of a hotel but felt like home. The creature comforts of linens, towels, pots and pans made it so wonderful not to worry about having everything with us. You thought of everything! Even the flashlight on the refrigerator was perfect because the electricity did go out one night!

Your home is beautiful and I hope we'll be able to come back again and rent from you. Thanks again for everything.

Betty C., Worcester, MA 
08/10/04 Lewis Bay Retreat
We had a nice stay at the house. It was so nice to have the sheets and towels already provided. And they were so soft! It was also a big plus to not have to bring beach chairs and towels since they take up so much room. It's too bad the weather wasn't great for the beach. But the kids didn't seem to mind. We played a lot of miniature golf! We would definetly recommend the house to other vacationers. Thanks again!

Thank you for your contribution to a great vacation! The well furnished and provisioned house did much to make us feel at home; good weather did the rest.

We hope to return.

We were so happy we stayed in your house. It was everything you said and more, very clean and well taken care of.

Everything was great. We had a great time on the Cape. With the wet weather on Sunday, we drove around and explored the various towns, which helped us plan our week. We did get 3-4 great beach days, which proved to be plenty of sun, it was actually much warmer than we thought it may be which was a nice surprise. The nights cooled off very nice and your home gets good cross breezes.

We usually rent a house or condo once a year in various places and no one provides the extra touches you provide (condiments, laundry detergent, bath products, linen ribbons). These were very nice.

We went to the Fish Market a couple of times and did use the lobster pot which was great to have. It was a great week on the Cape. We explored from Woods Hole to Provincetown. The location of your home is great! We had some great days on the beach and enjoyed the shopping and eating that Cape Cod has to offer. The area proved rich in history and in culture, making for a very enjoyable week.

We were very happy with your home, and extremely pleased and grateful for how nice it was interacting with you. We had a great vacation.

We appreciated your binder, it really was helpful!

Jim and Deb T., Spencer, OH

We spent a wonerful week here on Cape! I never imagined that May can be such a great month to spend on Cape. We enjoyed our walks along the beach, marvelous sunsets, great fishing and excellent food.

Your home is so warm, well located, close to everything Cape has to offer and is lovely and inviting.

We would love to come back soon!

Thank you,
