Historic treasure, needs maintenance
Review by Jane W.
Gorgeous old house, with incredible location on the water... but; scary ancient electrics! Old worn rugs and upholstery, poorly equipped kitchen, dirty grill we never used,Beds need updating, mattress pads stained and stretched, pillows old and overused. Dishwasher a mystery until we found an owners notice midweek, and also learned that there were bikes we could use.

Return customers Very Disappointed
The property location being right on the bay IS wonderful and this was our second year at 663 Commercial. However...There are challenges. The structure is very 'rustic'. No A/C of course so fans are everywhere. Unfortunately there is really only one electrical outlet per room so there are mostly cheap two-prong extension cords run everywhere. The road out front is noisy, parking is awkward. We never used the primitive dishwasher because it had to be rolled across the room to be connected to the sink. All this could be accepted with a sense of humor, however with Henri heading toward us on Aug 21, I informed Cape Cod Oceanview Realty that we were delaying our arrival two days based on Governor Baker's warnings, and having no assurance (or reply at all) from them that the place would be safe or habitable and that based on clause 17 in the contract we would be expecting a pro-rated refund. No response. When I emailed about the refund yesterday, I was told today that this clause only applied if the building wasn't habitable. We will not be doing business with Cape Cod Oceanview Realty in the future.

Fantastic location on Cape Cod Bay and Commercial Street
Fantastic location with beautiful views of the Bay. My wife saw a Menke whale breech on the last day. We walked into town every day (you can get there on the beech if the tide is right), and biked to Race Point & Herring Cove. The rooms were spacious and neat. Two rooms have beautiful views of bay.Owner left kyacks to play with!!! and answered questions whenever I called. Only deltas are lack of insulation (if it gets cold) and electrical system that needs to be upgraded...would stay there again in a heartbeat
