Great location, awesome deck
Clean and Comfortable property in a great location. Sitting on deck and watching the wildlife is so relaxing. Close to beautiful beaches, delicious seafood available in grocery stores and restaurants, places nearby for bike rentals (lots of bike paths) - or go out on a boat to fish or whale watch. Great place to clear your head and reconnect with nature.
So glad you had a great time. It is an awesome spot to enjoy the ocean and relax!
We loved having you again this year!
Fabulous house; can't wait to go back!!!
Our family loved this house! it was just what we had hoped for. From almost every room, we had wonderful water views. We watched the boats, the kayakers, the birds and the seals all day long. The huge deck, with lots of comfortable chairs, was a wonderful spot for coffee in the early morning, and then wine and cheese as the sun set. There was a nice, new grill, which worked well. The furniture in the house was comfortable and the kitchen was very well-equipped. The owners left beach chairs and toys for our use so we didn't have to bring them from home. The WIFI worked perfectly, which is so important in this digital age.The outdoor shower was great! The owners were responsive when we had any questions. We look forward to going back next summer!!
Great accommodations. Excellent location. The seals would pop up in front of the house every day. They also appeared next to the paddle board we rented. We saw fish jumping there too. Plenty of room for everyone and the patio is a very nice relaxing touch.
Gorgeous location with front seat views of harbor seals and osprey
The home is airy and bright with comfortable beds. The outdoor shower is heavenly. The deck and location is what makes this home outstanding.
Great location, Lacking in Amenities
The location is terrific. It is less than 5 minutes to drive to Nauset Beach and a 12 minute drive to Skaket Beach. The owners are responsive. The view off of the back porch is great over the lake. We never heard or saw the neighbors. The outdoor shower was terrific. Unfortunately, there are some things you need to know before you book:
There is no permissible access to the dock and no river access without having to walk through tall grass. We thought the deck would be usable. As a result, we did not go into the river.
Every rental we have used for 10 years has provided a beach parking pass. Not this property. It's not a lot of money, but I would have assumed that it would be included. Maybe Orleans does not allow it.
When we arrived at the house, there was no laundry detergent, no paper towels, no hand towels, and, even though we knew we had to bring our own towels and sheets and blankets and pillows, we did not expect to have to bring all of these things. Other houses that cost less money had them included.
We saw the cleaning crew go into the house. I'm not sure what my cleaning charge paid for. There was still coffee stains on the floor and the room upstairs did not smell clean at all. There were spiders and bugs, including ants. The couch smelled. Again, I know it's the Cape, but for this money... I have spent less and received more.
We were not allowed in until 4, but we had to be out by 9:30 am. That's a long time to clean.
None of the rooms had overhead lights, except the kitchen.
We knew there was no central air, so that's not an issue, but some of the Window ACs were low or out of freon and didn't cool the room.
Master bed shakes and squeaks.
The front door was broken and unusable.
I know the purpose is not to watch TV, but they only have the most basic of cable with only network channels - no NESN (no Red Sox) and the only way to access non-network tv (Netflix) was through an HDMI cord.
Again, based on comparable houses, I would not have expected these issues. I wish I had known. We had a great trip and great weather. We just wished the house had more to offer. Sorry
Tides End is in an exclusive enclave with direct waterfront. Your review is very contradictory to all the experiences of our other guests. This is a upscale home not a hotel. Our house offers high speed internet, new beds (creaking, not in our or any other guests experience), granite kitchen, new sofa (smell from the new wrapping?) Like most all rentals, guests bring their personal sheets, bath, beach towels, toiletries, and detergent. Over head lighting in bedrooms is for hotels. In a home it's not only old fashion but also harsh. Overhead/recessed lighting however is throughout the rest of the home, complete with dimmers where appropriate to set the mood!
It's important to understand the environment and rules of the town. Our waterfront property is in accordance with the conservation rules of Orleans. Kayaks must launch kayaks from the bank which uniquely is on our waterfront property. Those who have a boat can arrange for a boat mooring. Weekly/seasonal beach passes can not be provided in advance unless you are a resident. Weekly beach passes are linked to your own rental agreement, car registration and license which one must provide in person. We're glad you enjoyed the privacy and vistas of our home. It's a very special home that is enjoyed by all who come!
Wonderful spot on saltwater pond
We had a great vacation here. The view off the deck was spectacular, with seals popping up out of the water and all kinds of birds flying through, particularly at dusk. The house had everything we needed and was very comfortable for our family; the outdoor shower was a particular treat. The location is great-- tucked away on a small road in a quiet neighborhood, yet close to both Nauset and Skaket beaches and everything in town. We'd love to come back.
Orleans is situated right at the elbow of Cape Cod, MA. It is home to the nationally recognized Nauset Beach. The town is a terrific mixture of local shops, crafts, markets and restaurants running from kid friendly to gourmet food. For those baseball fans, the Cardinals practice here, with folks watching the games each week from the lawn.
Other Activities: boating, kayaking, canoeing, whale watching, mini golf, historic site seeing, Local theater and outdoor concerts
