Loved Cape Cod

Donna's house in Dennis is a great place to launch your stay at Cape Cod. It is well cared for and conveniently located so it is easy to access beaches, shopping, the Rail Trail, and other destinations at the Cape. It has everything you need from a well stocked kitchen and linen closet to bicycles and beach supplies. Donna is easy to keep in touch with was very responsive to our needs. Our party consisted of two adults, two college students and a high school student, We were very comfortable in Donna's home. Our priority for our week was relaxation but we also wanted to go on a few excursions. We visited a few of the Dennis beaches and liked Chapin Beach the best. We bicycled on the Rail Trail, went fishing on a party boat out of Hyannis, did a tasting at Truro Vineyard, went on a whale watch out of Provincetown. My son explored some of the fresh water ponds and fished. We'd love to return!!

Donna Zbesko

Owner's reply:

Thanks Paul. Sounds like you enjoyed yourselves. I have yet to visit the Truro Vineyard. Hope you make it back again soon.

Wonderful Summer House!

Donna is a nice and reliable host. You can easily reach her by email and phone. This is a super well-equipped summer house, especially the kitchen. It has nice tea cups, coffee cups and plate, and even chopsticks (good for an Asian family like us). It also provides the clean pillow cases and bed cover and extra pillows and blanket. We had great family time there. We will love to go back!

Donna Zbesko

Owner's reply:

Thank you Vicky. So happy that you found the chopsticks. I am glad you enjoyed your stay at the Cape. Come back and visit us soon.

Amazing place for the family!!

I rented this house for a week in august and it was awesome! My girlfriend invited her cousins, and there was plenty of room for all us. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could think of using. The back deck was the perfect place to sit outside and relax. there is an outside shower which saved a lot of time for people to wash up before going inside and the bikes were great for all of us to take a ride and explore the local trails. The location is ideal for a family who doesnt mind driving a few minutes to the local shops and the bay beaches. I only wish i owned a truck so we couldve taken the kayaks out! :( Overall everyone loved the house, it was the perfect spot for a relaxing vacation!

Donna Zbesko

Owner's reply:

Glad you had fun Greg!! Hope to see you again!!

South Dennis rental

We had a wonderful time staying at this immaculately clean home. It was smack dab in the middle of the Cape, which made it so convenient to travel anywhere in a relatively short amount of time. We enjoyed the ammenities, washer/dryer, BBQ grill, deck, and wi-fi. Working with the owner was so easy. We have already recommended it to friends.

Donna Zbesko

Owner's reply:

Thanks so much Lisa. We were happy to have you visit and are glad you enjoyed your time at the Cape.

South Dennis Vacation

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the cape. There was plenty of room for all of us, plus our friends who visited. Rooms are a nice size and the extra’s that are included with this property make for a nice arrival. We had wonderful cook-outs and the corn from the Dennis Market was fabulous. I would highly recommend this property. We travelled up and down the cape so the location was perfect. Beaches were wonderful! Thank you Donna, hope to get up to the Cape in the future.

Donna Zbesko

Owner's reply:

It was nice to have you as a guest Tammy. I am glad to hear that you enjoyed yourselves. We look forward to having you visit in the future.

Cozy Home

This was our 2nd time renting this home in So. Dennis. It is warm, cozy, and clean. Nice neighborhood atmosphere; the Cape Cod Bike Trail is conveniently located just a 1/4 mi. away at the end of the cul-de-sac. We enjoyed biking, kayaking, and visiting numerous beaches in the Dennis area. The homeowners have many bikes and 2 kayaks (w / life jackets) that you can use during your visit. The house is centrally located on the Cape making it easy to get anywhere. The owners are quick to respond to any concerns / questions you may have. I highly recommend this home.

Donna Zbesko

Owner's reply:

Thanks Nancy. You and your family are terrific guests. We welcome you any time.

Perfectly situated, well appointed

We stayed here over the last week in August, 2011 (during Hurricane Irene!!) and had a great time. Having spent many, many years living and renting in the area, we found the location to be perfect. While it's not on a beach (or even within walking distance of one), this nicely appointed ranch is pefectly situated for going to either the Bay or Nantucket Sound beaches, as well as heading to the Lower and Outer Cape. And, being an inland location keeps the rental fee reasonable as well. The house has an "old school" Cape decore and reminded me of many of the cottages we rented when I was a kid. It is fantastically equipped - short of consumables, there was nothing we longed for during our week here. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is right down the street and we used the bikes provided several times. We even rode the Rail Trail during Irene and were luck to witness the Cape in a really fantastic setting. There are food, liquor and fresh fish sotres are close by and many nice restaurants as well. But what we like most about the Cape - and the location of this house - is heading out on a day trip to Truro, Wellfleet, P-Town, Nauset, etc., and it's easily done from here. And although the house is right off of Route 134 and Upper County & Great Western Roads, it is a nice quiet neighborhood (at least until we got there). The owners are responsive, affable and truly seem to care about their guests having a nice time. They have thoughtfully provided a lot of extras, such as bikes and kayaks, to help enhance the stay. If we were to have any criticism at all, I would say it lies in the tv/dvd area - the equipment could use a little updating. But frankly, we don't go to the Cape to watch tv - if it's rainy you find things to do; board games, go out in the rain, do a puzzle, etc. All in all, a very nicely appointed, well situated home base from which to enjoy the Mid and Lower Cape - which is the BEST part of Cape Cod!! We will most definitely return here.

All the Comforts of Home!

This was our first trip to Cape Cod and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! This home has great sized rooms and all the comforts of home: ceiling fans in every room, a washer & dryer, new kitchen, even a gas grill and patio set on the deck. We loved that there was everything we needed for the beach, especially boogie boards for our three kids! The neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful, yet only 5 minutes away from the center of town. Our kids went to this terrific Inflatable Park right in South Dennis that had the most amazing climbing and bouncy attractions we've ever seen -- a huge T-Rex, an Octopus & Pirate ship, a 20 foot tall Great White Shark, and tons more! My kids had a blast, could go on their favorites over and over again, and my husband and I loved that it was a great place to burn off some energy. We all loved the drive-in movie up in Wellfleet, which had looked far away on the map but was so easy to get to in just about 30 minutes. This was such a clean and family-friendly home that our whole family would love to go back next year!

Our second time around..........

We love this house! 2nd yr. in a row. The space in this house is so perfect. I adore having the powder room in the master bedroom! Having the washer/dryer is a huge plus! We went to both Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Both islands are well worth the trip. We purchased discount ferry tickets at the Cape Cod Mall. I have recommended this rental to two people I work with. They are both interested in it for 2012. I've decided that's enough otherwise we won't be able to get it for ourselves!!

Terrific Vacation House!

This is our second year in a row at this house, and we have thoroughly enjoyed our stays. The bike path is about two blocks from the house. It was great having the bikes available to use. We went on a family bike ride almost every day. The location is great. It is close to almost everything (even Stop and Shop). It was half way between the north and south side beaches. We purchased a beach parking pass for the week, and visited almost every beach in Dennis (the beach parking pass is well worth the money). The beach towels and chairs were great to have available for use. The deck is wonderful and has great shade throughout the day. We ate almost every meal on the deck. We would highly recommend this rental, and plan on returning.

GREAT Rental!

This place had everything you could need and want! We had an incredible time! My kids especially loved the bike trail at the end of the block. We didn't bring bikes from home and were relieved to know they had more then enough bikes for everyone at the house. Hope to go back to same house again next year!

Patrick Feeney

New Jersey

Great Rental!

This was my first time on the Cape and so glad I came across this rental. It had everything we could need. South Dennis was the perfect location to stay in. We were never far from any of the exciting things we had planned. We also found a great Irish Pub called O'Sheas on 28 right across the street from the Christmas Tree Shops in South Dennis. We even splurged and spent a night on Marthas Vineyard. I highly suggest staying at the Harbor View in Edgartown! Can't wait to come back next year, hopefully this place will be available!

It was the perfect spot for us. We started our days with a run on the Cape Cod Rail Trail that is at the end of the block. It is a well-maintained route that passes through neighborhoods, beautiful waterways and cranberry bogs. In the afternoons we would take a bike ride or kayak trip or go to the beach. The week we were there we had beautiful warm ocean water temperatures. Cape Cod is known for cool ocean temps, so it was a pleasant surprise. The house is well appointed with a fully stocked kitchen. The stove and dishwasher were brand new and there were plenty of plates, dishes and silverware. Even though there is a large kitchen table, we ate most meals on the deck right off the kitchen. We loved the outside shower. I don’t think we even used the shower inside. Being from New Jersey, everyone at the shore always has outside showers and you don’t always get that experience in other vacation spots. Close by is a shopping center that has it all; Stop & Shop, liquor store, restaurants, movie theater, even a Dunkin Donuts. The house has easy access to Route 6, so we were able to easily take a day trip to Provincetown. There we shopped and had a delicious fish dinner overlooking Cape Cod Bay. We would love to return to this house, with it’s great location, again in the summer of 2011.

Our Home Away From Home

It's such a pleasure to find that the home you've rented on the internet turns out to be such a winner. Not only is the house equipped with 7 bikes and 2 kayaks,but it's right next to a paved bike path which goes on for miles. Nearby are many ponds and lakes for swimming and kayaking. The house lends itself to carefree living, whether it's inside or out on the back deck for an evening of BBQ's. Shopping is very close and all areas of the cape are easily accessible from this central location.

Fabulous Rental

I have never seen such a well-equipted cottage in such a wonderful location. This cottage was so homey, clean, came with everything a person could want during the week and the owner was so easy to deal with. This rental will be a "must" every year. The bikes were in top condition, the bike trail 2 minutes down the road, every room had overhead fans, plus A/C if needed and the linens, kitchen ware, beach items were terrific, all anyone needs to bring is clothes. A wonderful experience.

Great vacation

Our family of 6 recently stayed on this conveniently located cape cod home. House clean and plenty of linens and towels. Quiet neighborhood but easy to get to all the beaches . Enjoyed having bike trail right at end of block and that bikes were provided. Owners very nice and easy to work with . If you want to walk to a beach this would not be the house for you but if you don't mind driving a short distance the price is great

Comfy, clean and convenient

This vacation home is Comfy, clean and convenient to everything. Kids enjoyed the bike trail, theater was nice and close, the beaches were local and the outdoor market down the road was nice. The house had all the essentials. Quiet and safe neighborhood. If you are looking for a quiet place on the Cape, this is it!! The owners were very accessable when needed.



strategically located, great for family with kids

We like our stay in this house. It locates in a quiet, friendly and convenient neighborhood. The owner is flexible and easy to work with. We visited 2 different places each day and it turned out that we were in a very good location to go near and far. The amenities are very useful that we can do our dishes and wash just like at our own home. The only thing that we didn’t like was the broken slide door blinds which the owner knew and would repair soon.

Cozy Home Centrally Located

Very conveniently located, there were directions to all of the beaches, etc. Plenty of room for a family, very cozy and comfortable. The owners were VERY accommodating, and VERY helpful - There was a washer and dryer on site; the most difficult thing was washing up the sheets and remaking beds prior to leaving - - this was a really great place for a family


Whippany, NJ

It Has it All

Family from Florida was up for the summer and we all stayed in this cozy comfy Cape. The beaches are so close by and there is plenty to do in the area. All linens and towels were supplied and with 5 kids the washer and dryer were a real bonus. The owners are so pleasent to work with and very accommodating. This rental is a real value!



Great house for young kids

My family stayed in this house mid August. GREAT HOUSE! First time we stayed in S. Dennis, normally we are at Orleans. Ceiling fans in all rooms, but because of new windows, room a/c units were not available. Outdoor shower backed out, but we used it anyway. Excellent location, and close proximity to ponds made it easy to go swimming in the morning, go home for lunch, then hit another beach in the afternoon. Would definitely recommend it for a family with young kids. Owner was pleasant to work with,


Bethesda, Maryland

The Affordable Cape Castaway!

Our rental had all the amenities without the Cape Cod price tag! We had the comfort, convenience and pleasure for our shoestring budget! The house came loaded with bikes, kayaks and beach essentials -not to mention wireless access and cable! Morning bike rides to the Historical Harwich's downtown before the family awoke was my favorite thing! This is a great place for plenty of rest and relaxation: beds are comfortable and the gentle summer breeze lulls you. Location, location, location: The house is mid Cape with Route 134 as its transversal; so it's conveniently in the middle of all highways and byways: This has the distinct advantage that nothing seems too far or isolated! Depending on the wind or weather, you have the choice of Bay, Ocean, Sound beaches and or ponds/lakes all equal distance from the house. Well worth the stay with honest and reliable owners. The best kept secret on the Cape.

Dunes on the Cape

Everything you could want in a rental! I have been going to the Cape for years and was so happy to find this very affordable rental which was located near many of the Capes fun attractions. It was fully stocked with everything from towels to kitchen items to beach supplies! Can't wait to go back next year.
