“Perfect Cape Cod Location to explore all of the Cape & Islands”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

We've stayed here many times over the years~always in the summer. I can see why people are not happy when they stay outside of the summer. The feel and vibe of the Cape is just not the same. Summer offers the most options that this resort allows you to easily get to and enjoy: Ferry to the Islands; beautiful and huge Southcape Beach just minutes away; Summer Concerts at the Mashpee Commons up the road; Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute ~ 15 min away; Chatham, Provincetown, Nauset Lighthouse---all an easy drive from here; Historic Sandwich/ Glass Museum ~ 15 min. The unit we always stay in (as we own week 30) is 41, so I can only speak for that. It's basic but comfortable & roomy with 2 bedrooms upstairs, nice jacuzzi tub in master, with well-equipped kitchen, pull-out couch in living room, deck & charcoal grilling area out back...even room for my boys to throw their baseball. The pools are clean and well-kept and my kids always have a blast. There is also a playground area with swingset and shuffleboard. There is also a small but functional work out room. Lastly, this resort is known for its tennis courts (indoor & outdoor) so if you play tennis, you're all set. You really can't beat this location for getting to beaches & other activities & restaurants. Yes, the units are simple & basic; but they are clean & roomy with a very "Cape feel" to the grounds. There is even shared coin-op washer/dryer in the basement which is great. I highly recommend it if you aren't expecting "Ritz"-like accommodations, but rather a clean, comfortable "standard" condo with great pricing for summer rates on the Cape and an excellent location from which to explore Cape Cod.

As a Festiva owner at Ellington at Wacchesaw East in Murrells Inlet, SC I've come to expect much less that what the money I've invested would bring one to expect. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon the weekend after Columbus Day and stayed for the rest of the week. Reading other reviews I find that what I experienced is what one expects as a Festiva owner. Some review mention fireplaces, lofts, washer and dryers. I believe we were in the older original units. This is common at Festiva. Show you the best when selling the property but when you return book carefully because they'll slide you into the worn out spaces without a second thought. Definitely no loyalty to their owners. We had a dated unit with two bedrooms up and living area down. All furniture, fixtures, etc was very dated. We were angered at first but quickly decided we were there to spend time together on the Cape and not to experience a fine Festiva experience. We used the unit for housing only. The heating system did not work the first 3 nights which were a little chilly until they found an HVAC repairman to get it running. The wifi was decent, TV was decent, Cape Cod was great. Wouldn't be a place I'd strongly recommend especially if kids are involved.

Room Tip: Choose another place to stay.

Southcape Resort right off highway 28, is nestled in trees, secluded, & very quiet. The lobby is just off the front desk w/w/worn-out seating. There is an outdoor & indoor pool, 2 indoor & 3 outdoor tennis courts, a shuffleboard area w/equipment, a weight room w/2 treadmills & 2 stair machines, hand weights & weight bar, & an info board of restaurants, places to go, & events. It has 55 triplexes, each building w/a 2 bedroom plus loft on either side of a 3 bedroom unit. Our end unit was quiet, & cozy & pleasant to hang out in,w/lots of room, about 1000 square feet, a green area in the back, & BBQ.
The loft overlooked the living room/dining room, so the central heating mostly went up into the vaulted ceiling/loft area, making it difficult to get warm in the main living space. The living/dining area had firmly cushioned seats, inadequate reading light, a brick fireplace, a flat-screen TV & DVD player, a small boom box, some books, sliding glass doors out to a porch w/a plastic table & 4 chairs, a rectangular dining table w/6 chairs, & good overhead lighting.
The narrow kitchen had limited counter/cabinet space, large single sink, no garbage disposal, electric appliances, serving sets for 8, a roll of paper towels, plenty of toilet paper & tissue paper, & 2 dishwasher soap packets.
Bathroom layouts were the same but the main bathroom had a bathtub & shower, single sinks, small counter space, cabinets over the toilets, & 2 bath towel racks.
The guest bedroom had a front facing window, good sized closet & dresser, & 3 table lamps. The master bedroom had a view of the back area, 2 closets, 2 night stands, 4 lights, & a dresser.
Sleeping was not that pleasant. The loft twin beds needed new mattresses, the queen in the master bedroom was new, but extremely soft & non-supportive with an old, worn-out box spring, as were the twins in the 2nd bedroom. We ended up sleeping on the floor.
The resort had 4 socials w/free food & drink.

The units are spacious, clean, and have adequate supplies. They have a somewhat cheap, apartment feel, but were quiet and furnished in clean, beach-house furniture. The showers are about the size of a phone booth (remember those, back in the day?!). My family stayed for a long weekend, off season -- this was a great deal. Staff weren't initially helpful on the phone when making the reservation -- I didn't know what the unit supplied so was difficult to plan. I ended up calling the office again to ask specific questions about available items such as soap, linens, etc. (they supplied just about everything you'd need so it would have been easier if they just shared this when I first called). Beds were okay -- a queen and two singles. Pillows were cheap and uncomfortable -- I'm picky about mattress and pillows. At no time did I get a receipt -- not when I reserved the unit on line, or upon arrival or checkout -- this seemed a bit odd. Some units have washer/dryer in the unit and others provide a towel exchange program. So why did I rate this a "4"? The mere bargain. It was a great price for a large townhouse unit during off season. Location is great -- close to shopping and restaurants. Definitely worth the price.

We stayed for four nights in late September. We have two small children and they accomodated us with two pack and plays and two high chairs which was awesome since that gave us less to pack up! the rooms were nice- big too! The indoor pool is clean and VERY warm- the kids loved it!! The only negative is the walls are very thin! We could hear the people in the next unit talking and i dont really think they were talking overly loud

The place was so nice. Quiet, clean and spacious. It was a tad dated with the cabinetry and such but overall was decorated very nicely. Felt like a beach cottage but very spacious and met all of our needs. The Tennis courts and BOTH pools were awesome. It was nice having he choice of an inside or and outdoor pool. It was centrally located so we were able to get around easily. We loved it!!!!

Just spent my first week here at SouthCape Resort, which we rented from an owner. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious the condo was. We stayed in a ranch style 2 bdrm/2 bath. We were psyched that in the loft area above the living room were 2 additional twin beds which my teenagers loved. So basically, the unit slept 8. LOVED the fact the unit had central air conditioning as it was muggy as can be! Thrilled to find a washer and dryer IN the unit itself! With the way my teenagers go through clothes, it really was a godsend! Living room had a nice flat panel tv w/ dvd player. Master bedroom only had a double bed- wish the resort personnel could upgrade the master bdrms with King beds as there is plenty of space for the larger beds. Master had an older tv but it was sufficient enough. Other twin bedroom(s) do not have tv's. Didn't use the indoor pool, but we did use the outdoor pool, which is kind of small for the amount of condos on the property, but it did the job of cooling us off. However, be careful as I was sunning myself in the pool and leaned up against the wall I was stung by 3 hornets as they had a nest inside the broken concrete area of the pool wall side. I told management so they could take care of the problem before anyone else gets stung. Tennis courts were great! Location is awesome as well. 3 miles to Southcape beach and just a little under 2 miles to the Mashpee Common shopping center. Just a mile away was our FAVORITE restaurant of all time..."Wicked". We ate there 3 times. Best Antipasta and Ceaser salad ever! Wood fired pizza was just unbelievable. Movie theater is right at the common as well (great for kids on rainy days). We just totally loved the place and will most definitely rent again next year !!

Room Tip: ask for any unit that falls between 1-30 as they have their own washer/dryer in UNIT!! :-)
