Description of the West Falmouth vacation home rental
Just up the hill from the village, this family home is surrounded by deck, gardens and wooded yard. Three bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs sleep six easily. The fourth bedroom (sleeps two) and one bath are downstairs, with separate access; great for guests or teenagers. And living room couches are comfortable for friends "sleeping over" . Almost everyone lines up for an outdoor shower, especially after a day at the beach. The washer/dryer is close by on the lower level. The large western-facing deck is shady most of the day. The sunny south side deck facing the gardens is perfect for morning coffee. The cozy kitchen is well-stocked for whipping up great dinners (except there is no dishwasher). We cook most of the time on the charcoal grill; paella is a family favorite. Large living room with expandable dining table makes family gathering easy. Study with fireplace is good for quiet time. Plenty of beach toys and 4 bikes to fill days with local adventures, no car needed. Loads of books, puzzles, music CDs if you prefer to hang out around the house, but no TV. There is wi-fi if someone needs an internet fix.
Area Information
Stroll to the cafe for breakfast, head to the market for provisions or sandwiches, and stop by the ice cream shop after the beach. W Falmouth village feels old-fashioned. The local bike path runs right through town, providing easy access to the great Sippewissett Marsh, to local beaches, and to Woods Hole. Conservation land on the hill, local cranberrry bogs and beach roads are great for walking or jogging. A ballfield, tennis courts and recently renovated playground are just down the hill from the house. We recommend riding lessons or trail rides at Fieldcrest Farm. Along W Falmouth Hwy there are farmstands and fish market.
Famouth Center has a great main street with shops, restaurants and pubs. Local musicians are always performing at one place or another. The library is a great resource for DVDs and of course books. Summer stock productions of Broadway shows take place at Highfield Theater. There is also a major shopping area with supermarkets and drug store chains for stocking up. Woods Hole is another village to hear music or check out local artists and craftspeople not to mention the world famous Woods Hole Oceanographic and Marine Biological Labs.
For other adventures, hop the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, drive to Sandwich for museums or continue down Cape to other nearby towns for antiques shopping.

great location

Great location for easy access to all the west coast beaches...my favorite. House was very eclectic which we loved and had plenty of space for 5 adults and 3 kids. Evenings out on the deck were wonderful and the grounds were lovely. Some of the beds were a bit too firm for the older folks on the trip. The downstairs bedroom had the best mattress, but the room was too musty for my taste...the kids didn't seem to mind it though as they are used to camping.

Dear Ms Rosser,

Thanks for the feedback. Glad you enjoyed the yard and the deck. We will keep an eye on the downstairs bedroom.

60's Haven

It would be easy to crtiicise this property on the grounds that it lacked certain facilities, e,g, air-conditioning, and proper access to the lower bedroom , but this would be to totally miss the point of the house. It is like walking into the 1950's/60's and we loved it for that. It also feels totally integrated into it's environment, we could sit on the balcony within a stone's throw of squirrels and chipmunks, and the birds woke us with the dawn chorus.The selection of books is remarkable, also the music selection. None of us wanted to leave, the location is really good, Falmouth has lots to offer, and we made use of the bikes. It is a good base for visiting Martha's Vineyard etc.Overall, a very memorable experience .

Casual Style West Falmouth Home

We stayed for 8 days in this absolutely marvelous place. The house is well taken care of and very well appointed for a rental (it doesn't just have sheets,towels and household things which make the vacation a lot easier but it also has bikes, games for children and wonderful books). Communication with the owners was easy, they were very friendly and responsive. The house has an absolutely perfect location( just 10min walk to the Chapoquoit beach and bike path), surrounded by beautiful trees and bushes, very spacious and light, and has a nice deck that was our favorite place to have morning coffee or evening tea. We've been renting on the Cape for a few years now and this has been the best. Elena&Andrei

Wonderful home away from Home

My family and I really enjoyed this home for our week on the cape. Comfortable living room/Kitchen for casual meals and even entertaining. Outside decks are perfectly balanced between sun and Shade. The outdoor shower is a real treat after biking back from the beach. Easy walking to the ice cream shop and country general store. We want to come back every year!

Serenity and Ease

No Hotel could give me what this place offered. As soon as I pulled in the drive way I knew this was the right spot for me and my family. Working in NYC, dealing with commute, crowds and noise, I needed a cozy, uncomplicated place to relax. A home away from home. Everything I needed was right there. No car necessary. Loved the wonderful black beach, a little gem that really only locals know how to get there. Shopped with my basket down the street at the market and enjoyed cooking in "my" cute kitchen. We had plenty of room to entertain some friends for dinner. Favorite Spot definitely the sunny side on the porch in the morning to read the newspaper and enjoy coffe and tea. The interior left us all imagine and wonder about all the adventures sailing the seven seas of the former owners. When I left the Cape I felt rested and energized a the same time and look forward to coming back soon.

Amazing and relaxing home!

We stayed over labor day in Sept. 2012. The home was casual but extremely well appointed and functional. I was amazed by the amount of space and light. The deck and common spaces are wonderful and relaxing. Being able to walk to the beach, and small local market were great benefits -- and lots of great quiet roads for running and biking. Can't wait to go back!

Randall Iserman

Owner's reply:

Thanks Mr Adams,

Glad to hear you had a good time. Hope we will see you again soon.
