This is a timeshare and we made an exchange to stay there. We very much enjoyed ourselves but, on the whole, it was a disappointing exchange. Our home resort has better and much bigger units. It is also a true resort with a much bigger range of facilities, such as restaurant, club, play area, etc.
Edgewater is a small place. It is nicely presented, well maintained and very clean. The apartments are in a two-storey U-shape with the open end facing the beach and sea. The swimming pool is at one end of the U.
Despite trading in a 3-bed house, we were in a one bed unit. Presumably the 2-bed units are those on the groundfloor. The apartments are sweet and attractively decorated. However they are small and cramped - the size of studio apartments. The bedroom is so cramped that it is difficult to make the bed for lack of space. There is also only a small, partial kitchen with limited equipment. Although the maintenance was good and the furniture and fittings were well kept, the coffee table was distictly worn and tatty.
The apartments are, however, adequate and they work - especially if you're out most of the time like we were - but they are tiny and lack the luxury of our home resort in England.
The nicest aspect is the direct view over the dunes to the sea. The upstairs units have nice private balconies with a good view. Being lower, the ground floor units probably can't see much and also have the disadvantage of no balcony, just a patio with little privacy.
Other than the swimming pool and the fitness centre, there are no facilities. This is not a resort in the normal sense of the word. There is no shop and nowhere to eat. There is a small beach that is supposedly private - but isn't. It's fenced in on one side but open on the other. If you wanted to, you could walk for a mile or two along the sand through the other 'private' beaches. Unfortunately the beach was rather bland and featureless, just a long stretch of sand. However the sand was lovely and pale but, sadly, visitors hadn't looked after it and it was dirty and strewn with rubbish. Shame on you Americans! As a result, we used it only once.
Edgewater is pretty well located for travelling the Cape. On the south, it is around half way along the cape, with travel to Provincetown at the tip taking just over an hour and Boston being less than two. However Dennisport is not the best town to be in.
Typical of many cape towns, it feels articial because it has a lot of hotels, holiday homes and timeshares and so feels rather artificial and without heart. The town is pleasant enough and is immaculate (as only New England can be) but there is no real town centre (just a string of shops) and no harbour, so there is no focal point, or anything much authentic or with history. Other than walking on the beach, we couldn't find much to do in Dennisport itself but there is plenty without travelling too far.
The upstairs units have the advantage of a private balcony and the best view. Only a third of the u...
