Guest access

Guests have access to the entire house excluding 1 locked closet that we use for storage of personal items and the outside shed. The kitchen is fully stocked with plates, glasses, cookware and utensils.

Interaction with guests

I interact with guests via email or phone as much as guest needs, but I typically do not meet guests in person. Access is provided via electronic lock combination, so no one will worry about running late or being locked out or losing keys. Guests check-out by simply leaving the house locked and after agreed upon check-out time, a cleaning company comes in to service the home.

Other things to note

This house has a long history of having returning summer rentals. Although we started renting on airbnb in 2015, we have lots of positive reviews posted online (EMAIL HIDDEN) ID 21099

I allow some dogs depending upon breed provided that a pet agreement is signed in advance.

Guests with children under the age of 6 must sign a Lead Paint Waver which is a Mass State Law requirement when renting a vacation home.

Guests are asked to bring their own bed linens and towels. If guests are not able to bring their own towels and linens, they can be rented. Just send me an inquiry and we can discuss via email.

House Rules
No smoking
No parties or events
Check in is anytime after 4PM
Check out by 10AM

Treat the house and its contents with care as if it were your own. Leave the house in the condition that you found it so that cleaning fees can be kept to a minimum for everyone. Cleaning fee includes basic cleaning - vacuuming/sweeping floors, cleaning bathrooms, etc. Cleaning fee does not include cleaning kitchen dishes or doing laundry - thus, tenants are asked to return dishes and kitchen utensils to their rightful home prior to checking-out. Often times, early check-in or late-check out can be accommodated upon request. Just ask as it depends on the cleaner's availability.

No smoking in the house.

Maximum number of occupants 6 - including visitors.

Some dogs allowed depending upon breed provided that a pet agreement is signed in advance.

Guests with children under the age of 6 must sign a Lead Paint Waver which is a Mass State Law requirement when renting a vacation home.

Guests are asked to bring their own bed linens and towels. If this can't be accomplished, sheets and towels can be rented at an additional fee.

During the busy summer season, we usually leave the house empty of our personal clothing and remove all food items from the kitchen. However, we use the house a lot during the rest of the year, thus we sometimes leave food and personal items behind, kindly refrain from eating the food or moving our personal items around the house.

The house was perfect! It was so adorable and just a few houses from the ocean! You could actually see the ocean from the front yard! Quiet little street and the fenced in yard was perfect for dogs! Cathi was so easy to communicate with and overall the house was exactly what we hoped for! Definitely worth staying! The beach was really pretty and so private, perfect for us and the dogs! Just be mindful the beach is only dog friendly before memorial day and after labor day!

The location is wonderful, quick walk to the beach. The house is family friendly with a big yard and lots of toys. Cathi was very easy to communicate with.

Wonderful location, just steps away from the beach and the many shoppes and restaurants in Harwichport. Very walkable neighborhood. Just down the street is a CVS, hardware store and Dunkin Donuts. Short drive to pickle ball courts, bike trail and Shaw grocery store. The hydrangeas are breathtaking up and down the whole street. The accommodations were very comfortable. Air conditioning in each bedroom and in the main living quarters. Huge outdoor shower. Nice seating on front porch. Tons of games in living room closet. Setting for 6-8 people in dining area. One bedroom had a queen bed. Second room had a twin bed and a trundle bed for a total of three sleeping areas. The downstairs bedroom only had one bed. Would have liked the trundle bed in that room since we at one point had three couples staying in house. Had to take extra trundle mattress and put downstairs for husband of the third couple. Second upstairs bedroom only good if sleeping three kids, three "close friends", or a mom, dad and child. Kitchen was well appointed, not much room for boxed or bagged groceries, but if you more some appliances out of the way you can make do. The only drawback was two of the cabinets were full of cleaning supplies. I should have taken the bottles and temporarily put them in the empty window seat next to the fireplace. We had to keep several things out on the counter, which limited us while preparing meals. But all in all a very nice kitchen area. There is no garbage disposal or recycling. Could take recyclables home. New washer and dryer, plenty of drying racks for wet bathing suits and beach towels. Cathi was easy to get in contact with when we had any questions. I highly recommend this quaint little charmer for a family of four to five, or perhaps two couples.

Cathi's home was in the perfect location for our young family, only a 2 minute walk from a lovely white sand beach. While the house is old and in need of updating, it was very clean and served us well for our stay. The house is easy walking distance to all that downtown Harwichport has to offer and an easy drive to Chatham.

Cathi's house worked out perfectly for our group. The beach was right there and was walking distance to town where there were some very good restaurants. Highly recommend!

Hi- We are a young family with 2 children. We live in Boston. I am American and my other half is French. Erwan is an accountant. I am a stay at home mom and a part-time teacher at Northeastern University. I decided to sign up for airbnb because my sister highly recommends it! She has rented out a bedroom in her apt in Boston for several years now and has only had positive experiences. So... we decided to give it a try! Feel free to link-in with me on Linked-In if you want to learn more about my background. BTW- we tend to be neat freaks and I would hate to stay somewhere that is not clean... so if your place is not super clean and we are interested in renting from you... would you kindly suggest that we stay somewhere else so that no one is disappointed! Thanks! :-)
