We have been renting homes in Chatham for 6 years, and I can honestly say this is by far the best place we have stayed. We have rented nice places before, and they have been comfortable, but our townhouse in Oyster Pond WAS THE HIGHLIGHT of our vacation. Everyday our kids played soccer, frisbee, shuffleboard, etc. in the well-manicured common grass area, which was very spacious (maybe around 5 acres). They hit balls on the tennis court and swam in the pool, which was a stone’s throw from our patio. Everyday at dusk our family would walk down through the path through the brush and down to the dock on the pond where there were birds and boats to see.
The apartment itself was spectacular. An added benefit is that it came with high quality sheets and towels – in years past we stayed in nice, expensive places and had to arrange for bedding/towels ourselves – so this was both a time and money benefit. Second, the place was extremely roomy and our family ended up using all of it – the media room, amazing kitchen to cook in and great outdoor patio area.
The place was very new and clean and the electronics were a big plus – I was able to stream all of our music from my iphone so we had family dance parties inside, and all of the TVs were smart TVs and connected to the Internet, so I was able to log on to my Netflix and Amazon accounts and watch our shows/movies on demand.
Finally, the décor and the details were very tasteful – from the high ceilings, marble bathrooms, nice hardwood floors and finishings - and it was all new. It felt like we were at marine version of the Four Seasons, but nicer, bigger, and with an awesome view of the lake.
Given the newness, the décor, the size and the outdoor area, I don’t think there is any other rental place in Chatham like this. Also, given how nice it is, I think it is a better value and more personal than staying at the Chatham Bars Inn. We have found our new spot and will be going back next year for sure.
