About the area

This location is perfect. Chatham is centrally located on the Cape, it is far enough from the busyness of the village center to relax and enjoy the peace and quite but close enough to all the conveniences Chatham has to offer. Forest Beach is 5 to 10 minute walk at 4/10 of a mile. This natural beach is unique and very private and does not require a parking pass or paid admission unlike the larger busier beaches. There are also several town beaches minutes away to choose from, each with its own personality or even a calm fresh water kettle pond. The beautiful Cape bike trail is only a 5 minute ride. There is even a newly surfaced public tennis court, basketball hoop with kids climbing play area within a 5 minutes walk. Tucked away at the end of a quite dead end lane this home has all the comforts of home and is beautifully landscaped with flower and herb gardens and has a great patio with new commercial infrared stainless steel grill & electric retractable awning to enjoy the best of the outdoors. Inside is bright and an open concept with skylights in the kitchen and in the cathedral ceiling of the sun room. New kitchen with commercial stainless steel Italian 'Verona' stove & beautiful new maple hardwood floors throughout.

“Great Escape!”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2016

We loved our stay and our vacation was one to remember! The home was great. It was very clean, well kept and comfortable. It was conveniently located and we were on the go every day. We traveled up and down the coast, spent a day at Martha's Vineyard, another day at Nantucket, went whale watching and saw may other sites. Everyday was something different and beautiful views everywhere we went. I definitely would love to visit again in the future! John was great to deal with and is very friendly. We definitely appreciate his hospitality! Carla

What a unique & wonderful house in Chatham!  John & Ruby are really superb hosts, very accommodating, making sure we were all set… to our delight, John even texted to let us know the house was ready a few hours early!  Food in the area was fabulous.  Burritos from the Corner Store, dinner at Karoo. The Talkative Pig Bistro and Pisces Restaurant are just a few minutes on foot. The central “Elbow of the Cape” location of the home is really optimal for exploring all the area has to offer. Great beaches are really close, shopping in picturesque downtown Chatham was awesome… It really was the best location we’ve stayed at on the Cape. The house was extraordinary - the children’s nautical themed bunk beds are surreal - our daughters wanted to spend all their time in there.  The beach house decor is updated and welcoming, the right combination of modern & chic, very relaxing and inviting.  Exactly what I want my beach house living room to be like… someday!  The kitchen had all the necessities and then some! There is everything you could ever want for day trips… bikes, beach chairs, toys, towels - it’s really a home away from home, and we look forward to returning soon!

A Slice of Heaven. From the moment you pull into the driveway, you will not be disappointed. This home is perfect in every way......location is close to main routes , attractions, great dining and all the beautiful beaches Cape Cod has to offer. John and Ruby offer thoughtfulness throughout the house. Impeccably decorated with that casual comfortable feel of home. We came to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy some quality family time while celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and our granddaughter's 5th birthday. We will definitely call on John and Ruby for our next Cape Escape! Grace and Bill Knowles

The house was exquisite; clean, in excellent repair, roomy and a very relaxing atmosphere. The setting of the home on the cup-de-sac made for a very peaceful and quiet location. The owner, John Muldoon, was also very responsive and a gracious host. A highlight was the proximity of the beach. With beach paraphernalia and children we drove each day (2 cars) and never had a problem parking. It was as if we had our own private beach to enjoy. Two weeks wasn't enough. It was very hard to leave. I highly recommend this home. It absolutely deserves Five Stars!!!

Owner's reply: We are glad everyone had such a great time on your 2 week vacation Charlie. Your family was a pleasure to host. Thank you for taking such good care of our Cape Escape. We hope to have you as our guests again soon. Many blessings

The vacation was lovely. Our stay at this house was superb!! The property is exactly as described, spacious, extremely clean, nicely decorated. It has a beach and sailing motif that gives a relaxing vacation feel to the house. It is a quiet location and completely peaceful. This house is extremely comfortable and includes all the comforts of home. The kitchen is very well equipped, with chef’s stove/oven, and a Starbucks coffee machine which makes excellent espresso. The breakfast bar seats three and the large dining table will fit eight to ten people. The location is ideal for going to places around the Cape. There is a beach within walking distance. The communication with the owners was straightforward. John & Ruby are very friendly and accommodating, always just a phone call away when we had questions. They recommended great places to explore and to dine, such as The Chatham Fish market, which has a clam chowder that is to die for and very affordable, and for incredible Lobster rolls head to Sir Cricket’s and for a delicious dinner they suggested “Del Mar” restaurant, which was outstanding. Excellent hosts. The welcome bottle of wine was very much appreciated. Thank you so much John & Ruby for letting us share your wonderful house. We highly recommend this property. A+++

Owner (John M.) is an excellent host, checking with us before, during and after our stay to make sure that all was going well. The house is extremely clean and very well equipped and laid out. You must have a car to stay here, but many items are very close to the house. We don't think the close beach (Forest beach) is very nice for an extended stay at the beach, but is fine for a quick swim. Thank you John for your hospitality and help. We very much enjoyed our time at your house in South Chatham. George J.

It was a pleasure to host you George. I love that Forest Beach is only a 5 minute walk from the house. This natural neighborhood beach is unique and very private. A nice retreat from the larger, busier local town beaches. I especially enjoy finding my own secluded nook by day or cozy family bonfire at night. Thank you. We hope to have you as our guests again next year.

My father and 2 daughters and I spent one week at this beautiful property. It was our first time on the Cape and it was perfect! The home is comfortable, peaceful and has all the amenities you need. The decor is beautiful and it is exceptionally clean and well kept. The location is excellent and we took advantage almost daily of the lovely beach within walking distance. The owner is delightful to work with and is helpful when planning your trip. I only wish we had stayed longer! We can't wait to go back. I would certainly recommend this property!

Queremos mencionar 3 lugares recomendados por ellos: Restaurante "Del Mar" el pescado y las ostras superrr , "Chatham market" deliciosa sopa de almejas y si usted quiere comer superdeliciosos rollos de Langosta deben ir a "Sir Cricket's".

Best vacation rental ever! Beautiful house. You have everything you need here. The beds were the most comfortable! If you have a bad back, this is where you want to stay! We are really into cooking, so the kitchen surprised us - had everything we needed and more! This house is perfect for our grandchildren. With the bikes provided in the garage, they could ride around on the cul-di-sac for hours. It is a great place for little kids. We went to the Rockvale beach which has the sulfur ponds and the ocean. The ponds are at different levels for all ages. The kids had a ball! So did we! We pull a 20 ft boat and the parking at the house for the boat is ideal. Easy to maneuver with the cul-di-sac. The Shop-in-Stop grocery store (big store) is nearby and there are ice-cream shops everywhere. This is where you want to be for a beach vacation!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!
