About the property

Great family vacation home with fantastic garden. Sleeps 8 in four bedrooms. Modern decor throughout. 5 minutes to beaches and rail trail.

We are located on a half acre, finished plot on the edges of Nickerson State Park and close to some of the Cape's best beaches.

Surrounded by local white oak that provides pockets of shade on those hot summer afternoons. The sun deck, added in 2012, is a wonderful space to entertain and fire up the grill in the evenings; and the kids will love hanging out in the tree house or roasting s’mores around the fire pit. The outside shower is perfect when returning from the beach or when you simply need to cool off from the midday sun.

Inside, the open living spaces continues with both a modern living room on the ground floor and a second large family / TV room in the fully finished basement Back up the ground floor there is a full kitchen, well stocked with all the things you’ll need to entertain, and adjoining dining area with seating for eight. There are four air conditioned bedroom, two on the ground floor as well as a full bathroom. Upstairs there are the two further bedrooms, a large Master and a large bright kids room, and the second bathroom.

About Paul Parkins

We are young family, with four kids aged 14 to 8. We now live in the UK, but Charlotte is originally from Boston and spent many summers down on Cape Cod. We've travelled extensively, but still think the Cape is one of the greatest place for our family to spend their summers.

Perfect location on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely perfect!

The house is equipped with everything needed for an extended weekend or week on the Cape. There is plenty of room for everyone inside and out. Our kids enjoyed the Wii system in the basement family room as well as the enlarged "treehouse" in the large backyard.

The location in Brewster is great for excursions up and down the Cape. Conveniently located minutes off Rte 6, we drove up to Ptown and over to Woods Hole to get the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We were able to explore the local beaches and Nickerson State Park is right next door, where we enjoyed a morning run.

The owners and their family are extremely responsive and answered all our questions before arriving. We received a welcome call upon arrival to go over instructions and answer any last minute questions we had.

I highly recommend staying at Paul and Charlotte's wonderful home and hope we have the opportunity to return in the future.

Sue, Marc and the boys
