“Fantastic home with everything we wanted and more!!”

Oliver's Cottage was ideal for our family vacation! My children and I stayed in the main house while my mother was able to have exquisite privacy in the apartment above the garage - complete with bathroom and mini-kitchen (all new). While the main house facilitated the perfect way to be together with an open, spacious, and beautiful new kitchen to gather. The home is decorated with colors that are both bright and comforting - whoever did the decorating has a true talent for it. Every inch was well-thought out and appointed with a very pleasing look and functionality -- gorgeous towels, comfortable and pretty sheets, a waffle maker among many other treats in the kitchen. The pool is the perfect size and makes the backyard the place to be when we weren't out at a nearby beach or shopping or eating out. The entire family can't wait to go back and there's room for friends next time as well! Truly an ideal Cape Cod vacation!!

“Perfect for large family / family reunion”
Reviewed 17 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We needed a large house to host a family reunion, and found Oliver's Cottage in West Yarmouth. From the initial email inquiry through the last day of our stay, the experience couldn't have been better.

Initial questions about the property and sleeping rooms were answered quickly. The lease was straightforward with reasonable terms, conditions and payment arrangements.

This is a beautiful home that easily accommodated our needs for 6 adults and 3 children.

The spacious kitchen has every imaginable tool for the gourmet cook if you want to dine in, but the location is also within a 10 to 15 minute drive of several restaurants in every price range.

The living room has a large, comfortable couch, as well as a couple of chairs for reading. The kitchen table overlooking the pool area was great for a few meals we prepared, again, easily accommodating 9 people, and was also useful for playing the many board games on hand.

A large flat screen TV in the living room was available with cable. A/C can be controlled in just about every room assuring comfort inside for dining and sleeping. The fenced yard gives the kids room to play, and a tree also kept them busy for hours. The heated pool is very well maintained, and provides both sunny places or shady spots at just about any time in the afternoon. There are several chairs around the pool area, as well as an outdoor table and chairs, with an umbrella to provide shade. Also handy was the outdoor shower for rinsing off before going back inside.

There was adequate parking for our 3 vehicles, and could have accommodated more.

Wi-fi was available, and worked flawlessly, despite the fact that we had multiple devices (PCs, iPads, smartphones, etc.) using it throughout our stay.

The owner was accommodating throughout the process, including 2 minor maintenance items that required attention (the pool needed chemicals added after a long rainy day, and the grill was not working correctly due to presumed mis-use by the previous tenants. Both were fixed within hours of being reported.)

In summary, we rate this home among the best we have rented in the several years that we have been vacationing on The Cape, and would definitely use it again, and recommend it to others with similar needs.

Stayed in late June, the house exceeded our expectations. Decorated as if it were a model home for HGTV. The Kitchen was awesome! new/modern appliances, top of the line cookware/utensils were provided. Perfect vacation for a Family/extended Family. The heated outdoor inground pool was the favorite of the kids, that did not want to brave the cool Ocean water. Neighborhood friendly & quiet. Perfectly located in mid Cape Cod
