About Gabrielle Svenning

I live with my husband and young son in a beach town not far from the property, which I inherited from my dad back in 2013. The house has been in my family since the late 1960s and a very special place to me. I'm hoping that by opening it up to renters who appreciate the water and salt air as much as we do, we can keep the house in our family for many years to come.

Why Gabrielle Svenning chose Falmouth

Location, location, location!! This place has an amazing view of the harbor in addition to being walking distance from many attractions including the Vineyard ferries, The Flying Bridge Restaurant (literally across the street) a very nice grocery story and the town center.

What makes this house unique

An "In-law" apartment with a 2nd floor deck to sit and enjoy the harbor views

Fantastic house. Great location. Couldn't have asked for a better experience.

  • 5 of 5

I'm from Falmouth and get back every year. You assume you'll get a musty cape cod smell on any cape cod rental but this house is different. A humidifier running full time keeps this house dry and wonderful. Air conditioners in every room for humid nights and a newly redone master bedroom overlooking Falmouth Harbor makes this a perfect rental. Incredibly happy.

Absolutely will re-book next year!

Great Cape Cod Home

  • 5 of 5

The property is located across form a marina with great view, close to town, restaurants, shops and beaches.

We walked to the Island Queen ferry to Marthas Vineyard for a day trip. Very convenient to everything you need.

The Town bands stand was right down the street and held some local talent concerts a few evening and a Farmers Market on the weekends.

The house was very clean and had everything needed to just enjoy your vacation.

We highly recommend staying in this Cape Cod quaint home.

Charming Cottage on the Harbor

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful time we had in this charming cottage right on the harbor, close to shops and the ferry. The house has so much old time character, but with all the amenities you would need. The deck on the top floor is a bonus, with lovely views of the harbor. Thanks Gabby, we will tell all our friends and family about your beautiful cottage.

Great Location, Lovely House

  • 5 of 5

Great stay with my wife, two kids and Mom. Location is perfect, walking distance to Edgartown an d Oaks Bluff Ferries (saves $25 in parking fees). You can also easily walk to three waterfront bars/restaurants, a grocery store and a tastey clam shack (awesome fried whole belly clam rolls!). You are just a mile from the center of Main Street. A quick drive, bike ride or a decent walk.

The house had plenty of room for the five of us. The Captains Quarters, master bedroom, has a balcony and kitchen. Was nice to make coffee and walk outside without having to leave the room. It was hot this weekend, but the 3 window units kept us cool. Kitchen had everything we needed.

Easy check in and check out. Highly recommend.

Awesome place to stay in Falmouth Cape Cod!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, met and exceeded our expectations. The owners are great people and easy to work with, they kept us up to date and informed all the way up to our stay - they even were available when needed during our stay. It is easy access to restaurants, bars, beaches, and everything else that Falmouth has to offer. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking for a great place to stay and feel at home while visiting the Cape.

Very nice cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a long weekend at this cottage. It was very nicely maintained. My uncle really enjoyed the suite above the garage. It was new and very nicely appointed. The main house was a bit dated, but very comfortable with room for a family of four. The owner was extremely easy to communicate with and even sent items we forgot at the rental. She told us about a great playground and delicious mexican restaurant, both we would have missed without her knowledge. The location was great, close to both the beach and downtown, but not really walkable with small children. I would definitely stay again.
