A beautiful home away from home
August 15, 2014
We spent a wonderful week at Lewis Bay Retreat. My family of 2 adults, 4 children +dog just loved the house. It is on a quiet, dead-end street and that was a welcome respite after the crowds of Cape Cod. The house had absolutely everything we could need or want and when we arrived it was in spotless and welcoming condition. Lewis Bay Home is in a fabulous location, within walking distance of great restaurants and a quiet beach where we ended every night watching the gorgeous sunset. We were a close drive to another fabulous beach and all of the shops and amenities of Hyannis. The house came with a local beach pass which was a fantastic bonus! We had easy access to the major highways for traveling the Cape. Julia was an amazing host-- she answered all of our questions with care and thoughtfulness, she made a special effort to accommodate some extra requests, and she anticipated our every need in the house. We appreciated the well-appointed kitchen and the lovely, comfortable beds. We also appreciated the maps and information left in the house which helped us navigate the Cape. We could not imagine a better spot to stay in Cape Cod.
A great vacation retreat - a home away from home.
June 27, 2014
This was a wonderfully accommodated vacation home. The owners have thought of everything your family might need to make you feel as if you were at home. The location is within walking distance of several small beaches (One short walk, the others a little further - but doable), and Hyannis Port main street area. The Cape Cod hospital is two blocks away, but we were never bothered by hospital traffic or noise from emergency vehicles. West Yarmouth is conveniently located 6-7 exits onto Cape Cod - so leaving the cape for short day trips is quick and easy. Hyannis boasts several groceries including a Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, and a BJ's wholesale. All of these are a short drive from Lewis Bay Retreat. Several great restaurants are also within walking distance or a very short drive. The house is located on a quiet, dead end road with a lovely small yard. It would be a great place for small children to play or to cook out. Bikes and grill are in the storage unit. Linens and bedding are a very nice quality. The only bathroom is upstairs - so that would be a consideration if someone in your party has trouble navigating stairs. Overall we had a lovely week and Lewis Bay Retreat met our needs perfectly. The owners were prompt in communication during the reservation process and followed up quickly with the return of the damage deposit. I would highly recommend a stay at their lovely vacation home.
"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."
"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."
"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!!"
"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 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."
"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!"
"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, We had a wonderful stay in your home. It was beautiful and really comfortable. The King bed conversion worked beautifully. You had every other imaginable convenience and it was such a pleasure to stay with you. Again many thanks."
"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. Thank you."
"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 Chuck, Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We had a fantastic 2 weeks here. 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. 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. "
"Dear Julia, Thanks so much for making our holiday on the Cape so relaxing - the house was great: comfortable and everything we could ever need was always in place. We really enjoyed the sights and locations on the Cape and hope to return next summer. Kindest regards, "
"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. Ewan, Karen, Ellie and Hanna Thomas."
"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 hou
"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."
"Wonderful week on the Cape in your lovely home. We enjoyed the beaches, bike riding, whale watching, shopping and various other local outings all from a great central location to everything. Your home was very welcoming and homey. The children loved the stars on the ceiling! The beds were comfortable and cozy. 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. Hope to come again soon. The Pollington family Woodford Green Essex U.K."
"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. You have a lovely home here. Thanks for a great holiday! Penny, Nigel, Francesca, Amelia and Olivia Naden. Prestbury, Cheshire, England. U.K"
Thanks for a lovely Christmas in your charming home. Our stay was relaxing and carefree. Thanks for all your thoughtful touches that made us feel welcome. The Breckenridge/Wagener Family."
"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 Lynn, Chuck, Charley, Gabrielle & Oliver."
"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. Cheers, Veronica "
"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 Chviruk.
"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! Amy, Frank, Sarah and Jessica
"Thanks so much for a really great week. Your house was just perfect!!! Your personal touches in and around the house made this a wonderful choice for our summer escape. The wine, the beautiful flowers, the local magazines, etc., were all greatly appreciated. We can't wait to return to the Cape! 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 Talley."
