Close to beach
Overall, it was a decent house, but needs some heavy cleaning in the bathroom. Also, the bed in the downstairs master suite is not comfortable. The house was a good size and jut two miles from the ocean side beach, a great central location to P'town and Orleans.

Wellfleet is wonderful, The beds here are not!
We have rented on the Cape for 15 years and fell in love with Wellfleet 5 years ago. This house is located on the ocean side which is great to avoid traffic. The house has a nice open concept.Unfortunately this is a pet friendly house (which we knew ahead of time) and the upstairs rugs have an overpowering cat urine smell, especially on humid days. I emailed the rental agency about 3 concerns: the dirty grill (there were 2 signs stating to clean it before leaving or there was a fine), the cat smell, and the rock-hard beds( I did asked to be reimbursed if I bought a mattress topper as the listing did not state FIRM beds). A voicemail was left on my phone stating no cats had been there recently (we found liter pan items in the house), stated I could always sleep on the floor if the beds were too hard. The person, M., was also laughing as she left the message! We were shocked at her response. I called back the office and talked to the manager, S, who listened, left a bottle of spray to remove the cat smell, and asked if I could do something myself about the hard beds...like sleep on the couch cushions. We neither felt like valued renters nor would we rent through this agency again.I had to go home for a night for a good nights sleep (3 hours away) and bring back futon mattresses from my own home to make the beds tolerable. We would have appreciated a discount/return of some of the fees due to the beds conditions.

Awesome experience! Weather was great; house was just what we needed. The house smelled and looked amazingly clean when we arrived-so happy to see that! But there were a few things that we told the realtor about that need tending to, such as: the first floor toilet handle needs replacing, as the 'chain' part broke off and we had to put our hands into the tank to reach for the chain and pull it up every time we flushed. Also, there must be a leak in the ceiling near the chimney; huge pieces of ceiling [plaster came down while we were there. Also, the screen slider door is not fitted correctly; it cannot be locked and doesn't run along the track consistently well (We think it was installed upside-down with the handle on the wrong side.). As homeowners ourselves, we were fine with working with these things but feel the owner should know. Otherwise, we had a really wonderful family trip, and hope we can rent again next summer-our daughter specifically requested this house!:)

Ideal location, comfortable living

We had a wonderful stay - enjoyed the property and the surrounding area. Being pet friendly, I was very pleased to find how clean and well kept the home was. The deck, table and grill were a nice treat as well as the outdoor shower (for us and the dogs!) We hope to return next year and do it all over again.
