Exquisitely sublime, relaxing and restorative.
Very aptly named “Heaven’s Hideaway” for both the cottage and sublime surroundings. The home had nearly everything one could possibly need, including a helpful information booklet. Our only negative was the mattresses (queen bed was way too soft to support 1 person weighing 280 lbs.) and wish the entrance road ruts could be leveled a bit - however, every other aspect was beyond wonderful and pure heaven!
A lovely place!
We had an incredible week at this gem of a house! Traveling with two dogs is never easy, but this house was perfect for them, and our little family of 3. Cape beaches aren't particularly dog friendly, and we usually spend our time at Nickerson State Park where there are a few ponds that allow dogs, but here we had our own pond and private beach! The house is cozy, updated and very comfortable, but the pond and the privacy is the big winner here! I give it 4 stars only because the highway noise was at times a bit loud, but the woodsy seclusion made up for it. Thank you to the owners for a great stay!
Quiet & quaint - convenient to Rt. 6
We liked this cabin on the pond. I was surprised at how quiet it was with its proximity to Rt. 6, so that was a huge plus. Convenient AND quiet! The pond was great for our dog to swim in - she had the best time. The only thing I wish I had known in advance was that the driveway is quite a rough road. It was tough for our Prius to negotiate. I wish we had brought our SUV instead. The kitchen is small and is the main entry point to the house, which was a bit of a challenge with the ins and outs - but it is still functional. The deck is a nice place to overlook the water and enjoy your coffee. House has a bit of an odd layout but was just fine for our small family of three plus dog.
Thank you for your comments. We are so glad you liked it. Our guests do love the fact that it is waterfront and in a serene setting. Regarding the access road to the home we do state in our home description: "The home is located on a dirt road and in a secluded area on the pond. All wheel drive or 4 wheel drive is recommended."
Perhaps you missed this. We hope to have you back!! Best, New England Vacation Rentals
Sweet Little Hideaway
We spent a week in mid-July at this secluded Harwich cottage. If you're looking for a very quiet and peaceful vacation home, this is it! Our 1 year old son and yellow lab also loved it!
Our favorite feature was the deck overlooking the pond. Really nice little updated kitchen, fairly comfortable beds and couches. I personally enjoyed the outdoor shower too.
A few minor things: the bathmat was super slick. I'd advise ditching a mat altogether and installing some sort of non-slip surface. Also, we ended up needing to buy toilet paper as nothing was provided.
Due to all of the sand around the outside of the property, some of it gets tracked in to the house and unfortunately the broom provided did not include a dust pan. I would advise updating the broom and include a dust pan.
For miscellaneous floor cleaning,the tiny vacuum worked great!
Overall, we had a very enjoyable week at this property.
Thank you for your comments regarding your stay at Heaven's Hideaway. This is a popular home due to is peaceful location and ambience.
We have passed on your comments about your recommendations. We provide you with "packing list" a week prior to your arrival which gives a detailed list of items you will need to stock the home which includes toilet paper and other paper goods. We look forward to assisting you again and always feel free to contact us during your stay for anything you need. Best, New England Vacation Rentals
Beautiful and peaceful!
The house is nicely decorated and has everything we needed. However, we spent most of our time on the deck enjoying the perfect view! Very private location while still being just a short drive to dining, shopping, and ocean beaches.
4 wheel drive needed
First of all, you should not rent this house unless you have a four wheel drive vehicle or expect undercarriage damage to your car. The driveway was extremely difficult to maneuver with ruts on both sides and high mounds in the middle. We did not go out as much as we would have liked to because of this which put a damper on the vacation. Second, the only way to describe the bathtub & shower walls was gross. It was extremely stained and the tile looked like there was blood on it. The cleaning crew that they use doesn't do a great job. Granted we were in the woods and expected some bugs but there were many cobwebs and spiders throughout the house. The pond was great for the dog and the view was excellent but being stuck at the house wore a little thin after awhile.
Thank you for review. We appreciate your feedback. Regarding the road, we will add this information to our description of the property.
Regarding the tub/shower, we do state in our check-in instructions as well as the welcome book at the home that this is due to the level of iron in the water. As stated:
- The house relies on (under)ground water pumped via an artificial well. This water contains a relatively high amount of iron. You may notice the red/brown stain in the bath tub and the toilet as a result, and some distinct taste. Please rest assured that the quality of water has been tested and is completely safe for human consumption.
Had you contacted us regarding the stains in the tub and shower during your stay we would have advised that it was not a result of the cleaning. This being said, our cleaners do guarantee their work within the first 24 hours of your stay and we do provide you with their contact information in the check-in instructions. They would have happily come back to the home to resolve any issues you may had with the cleaning.
