Eastham vacation 2022
Review by Donet T.
My daughters and I spent a lovely week in Eastham this August. This was a revisit for us and it was great to be back. The house was spacious and clean. The weather was extremely hot that week, so with only fans downstairs we struggled to stay cool. Otherwise we were fine.

Fantastic Week at 80 Shady Lane
Review by Lynn A.
My husband and I and our two adult children just had a great week at 80 Shady Lane. Our check-in packet was fast to pick-up, and the person handing out the packet was full of information about the surrounding area. We called the service number once to confirm the WiFi code but the staff answered immediately and resolved the problem. The house is located on a large private lot and felt very safe and away from any major roads but still close to everything. We brought a Badminton set and there was a horseshoe set there with plenty of room in the yard for everything. The house was very spacious and clean inside and had a very fully equipped kitchen. The basement had a ping pong table and Foos ball table and provided a lot of fun at night. The outdoor shower was a plus too, especially when coming back from the beaches. The location of the house was perfect. We spent time at both beaches on Great Pond which is a relaxing (shark free) freshwater pond. Wiley Park was a 3-minute bike ride (0.4 mile) from the house and would be a great place for small children because the beach is shallow, has a playground, and bathrooms. Great pond beach was a 4 min. drive (1.3 miles) and we took floats and anchored out beyond the swimming area for a super relaxing afternoon. The beach there is nice and deeper than at Wiley. There are at least, 4 bay beaches nearby but our favorite was the closest one called Kingsbury beach (0.5 mile). There is no parking, but its close enough to drop stuff off and walk or bike back. Twice we biked to Coast Guard beach on the oceanside which is a 3.4-mile, fun, bike ride that is partly on the Nauset bike trail and partly on the Cape Cod Rail Trail. The Cape cod rail trail is only 0.9 miles away and stretches for about 25 miles giving access by bike to many restaurants, bars, mini-golf, and beautiful scenery. There are also about 10-15 restaurants and a few fish markets within a 5 min. drive. We couldn’t have had a better home base for our vacation
