In the world of vacation rental real estate, sometimes less is more.
Not every renter is going to need or want the biggest, flashiest home on the compound–just a cute little hideaway with all the essentials.
As the owner of a Cape Cod vacation rental, you should be motivated to sell your property’s charm with darling photos and descriptive, updated copy. In the case of the featured home in Barnstable, both work, plus one more feather in its Yankee hat: historical architecture.
The house was built in 1835 and mirrors the simplicity that visitors associate with the laid-back New England lifestyle. Flower boxes and shingles channel a farmhouse, a style reflected inside the home, thanks to plank floors, a fireplace in an intimate living room and low-ceilinged bedroom complete with rocking chair. To further the fantasy, guests can wander into town, where a Main Street and restaurants like the Company of Cauldron nourish with wine-focused, candlelit dinners that set the mood for wooing. Harpists also play three times a week. Courtship doesn’t get any sweeter.

Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
