About John Muldoon

My family has always had a home in Chatham. When I was growing up I spent my summers and many weekends throughout the year in Chatham. It has always been my home away from home, my place to connect with family and friends. I am fortunate to carry on this tradition with my wife Ruby and son Liam. We enjoy sharing this wonderful experience with other families to create their own family memories .

John Muldoon purchased this house in 1980

Why John Muldoon chose Chatham

This location is perfect. Chatham is centrally located on the Cape, it is far enough from the busyness of the village center to relax and enjoy the peace and quite but close enough to all the conveniences Chatham has to offer. Forest Beach is 5 to 10 minute walk at 4/10 of a mile. This natural beach is unique and very private and does not require a parking pass or paid admission unlike the larger busier beaches. There are also several town beaches minutes away to choose from, each with its own personality or even a calm fresh water kettle pond. The beautiful Cape bike trail is only a 5 minute ride. There is even a newly surfaced public tennis court, basketball hoop with kids climbing play area within a 5 minutes walk.

What makes this house unique

Tucked away at the end of a quite dead end lane this home has all the comforts of home and is beautifully landscaped with flower and herb gardens and has a great patio with new commercial infrared stainless steel grill & electric retractable awning to enjoy the best of the outdoors. Inside is bright and an open concept with skylights in the kitchen and in the cathedral ceiling of the sun room. New kitchen with commercial stainless steel Italian 'Verona' stove & beautiful new maple hardwood floors throughout.

Great Escape!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and our vacation was one to remember! The home was great. It was very clean, well kept and comfortable. It was conveniently located and we were on the go every day. We traveled up and down the coast, spent a day at Martha's Vineyard, another day at Nantucket, went whale watching and saw may other sites. Everyday was something different and beautiful views everywhere we went. I definitely would love to visit again in the future! John was great to deal with and is very friendly. We definitely appreciate his hospitality!

Lovely home in a charming location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for a family vacation. Close to a beach and a bike trial, lovely quiet neighborhood. The house is very well maintained, comfortable, clean and fully equipped. Most of all I was impressed how well the kitchen was equipped. I've never seen such a great kitchen in a rental property. We loved that there were bicycles that we could use. It was very enjoyable. John, the owner was very friendly and responsive from the time of enquiry up until our departure, and even after (took care about our stuff that we accidentally left).

Overall we would rate this property a 5 star house and would definitely recommend to anybody.

Beautiful, Unique House & Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a unique & wonderful house in Chatham!  John & Ruby are really superb hosts, very accommodating, making sure we were all set… to our delight, John even texted to let us know the house was ready a few hours early!  Food in the area was fabulous.  Burritos from the Corner Store, dinner at Karoo. The Talkative Pig Bistro and Pisces Restaurant are just a few minutes on foot.

The central “Elbow of the Cape” location of the home is really optimal for exploring all the area has to offer. Great beaches are really close, shopping in picturesque downtown Chatham was awesome… It really was the best location we’ve stayed at on the Cape.

The house was extraordinary - the children’s nautical themed bunk beds are surreal - our daughters wanted to spend all their time in there.  The beach house decor is updated and welcoming, the right combination of modern & chic, very relaxing and inviting.  Exactly what I want my beach house living room to be like… someday!  The kitchen had all the necessities and then some!

There is everything you could ever want for day trips… bikes, beach chairs, toys, towels - it’s really a home away from home, and we look forward to returning soon!

A Slice of Heaven.........

  • 5 of 5

From the moment you pull into the driveway, you will not be disappointed. This home is perfect in every way......location is close to main routes , attractions, great dining and all the beautiful beaches Cape Cod has to offer.

John and Ruby offer thoughtfulness throughout the house. Impeccably decorated with that casual comfortable feel of home. We came to relax, rejuvenate and enjoy some quality family time while celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and our granddaughter's 5th birthday.

We will definitely call on Johnn and Ruby for our next Cape Escape!

Fabulous Family Vacation in Chatham

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation in Chatham was awesome from beginning to end. Our check in time was 5 o'clock, but John emailed me around 2 to say that the house was cleaned and ready to move in. We were all very excited to be able to unpack and start relaxing on the Cape.

The house was very comfortable. We enjoyed relaxing on the deck and watching television in the family which was very spacious for the 6 of us.( 4 adults and 2 children). The beds were comforable and the kids enjoyed the bunk beds which were a novelty for them.

It was especially nice to have air conditioning since it was quite hot while we were there.

Going to the beach( and we tried several) was easy since there were 6 beach chairs, beach towels and even pails and shovels for the kids.

There were also many bikes to choose and a favorite activity was biking to Forest beach later in the day. My granddaughter easpecially like the bicycle built for 2 and she would ride in back with her dad. There were also helmets provided. We didn't utilize them, but there were also boogie boards and large tubes for swimming.

The kitchen was well equipped and supplied with all the necessities. The washer and dryer worked well and was very convenient to use.

One floor living was very easy!

The only criticism I have is the shower head in the master bathroom was hard to position.

All in all, everything was wonderful and we thank John and Ruby for letting us relax in their home.

John also was very quick with e-mail responses.

Thanks for everything, John and Ruby

Centrally located at the “elbow” of Cape Cod, Chatham is a true Cape gem. Said to be as quaint as Nantucket without the boat ride, enjoy main street and its unique shops, restaurants, theaters and inns. Relax at the scenic beaches perfect for sunning, swimming, boogie-boarding, kayaking, windsurfing, or sailing. If the salt water is not your thing, try one of the calm spring feed glacial kettle ponds which is a great alternative for young kids. Enjoy the public golf. There is a newly surfaced public tennis courses within walking distance. Check out the 26-mile Cape Cod bike trail perfect for both avid cyclists and families. For some unique adventure hop on a water taxi at The Chatham Fish Pier to your private space on secluded South Beach or explore Monomoy Island. Try deep-sea fishing, whale or seal watching, kite boarding, or catch the island ferries to the Vineyard or Nantucket. Kids love the go-carts, bumper boats, skateboard park and miniature golf. In the evenings, enjoy the 81 year old traditional downtown Friday Night Band Concerts in the park or take in a CCBL, Cape Cod Baseball League, Chatham Anglers game at Veterans Field, a play at the outstanding Monomoy summer theater, Like most people, you may find yourself coming back, year after year.
