My wife and I rented with another couple. We both brought our toddlers who were 1 yr old and 3 yrs old. The house was a good size for us, and could have easily fit a couple more kids as some of the rooms had two beds. The kitchen was well stocked, and all of the appliances worked great. We didn't know what to expect, so we over-packed in terms of cooking gear. There were pots, pans, utensils, plates, glasses, knives, etc.. and many other random things (likely left behind by other tenants). We could have easily gotten by without packing any kitchen gear. The only thing I would mention for people with toddlers is that there is one chair in the living room that is loaded with pins and staples. Whenever our son was in the house we had to keep pulling him away from that chair. Even I got pricked once while running my hand down one of the arm rests. The deck got a lot of use. Their was a full propane tank for the grill, so we didn't have to go look for that. The house over-all seemed to be in great condition. The yard isn't ideal for outdoor play; grass is scarce, and it is very pebbly with a ton of thick weeds. Looking around at surrounding homes shows that this is par for the course in this neighborhood. This wasn't a huge deal for us though, as we spent most of our time at the local beaches, and hung out on the deck when we were at the house. The harbor road beach is about a 10-15 minute walk. The sand and view is nice, but not ideal for swimming as there are a lot of rocks out there. A great place to go sit and read or collect shells though. The public beaches are about a 10-20 minute drive depending on which one you go to. Those are all great; sand and water alike. it was never too crowded, and parking was always easy. I didn't personally have any contact with the owner, as our friends handled the booking portion of the trip, but we heard no complaints from them. The renters provided a great information booklet and seemed very accommodating. We had a great vacation in Cape Cod, and my wife and I were very happy with the house.
