“Perfect Rental Home, Ideal Location!”
Reviewed 18 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016
1
person found this review helpful

This is the ideal location to take in the breathtaking beauty of the Cape, and Green Gates itself generously accommodated our party of 10. The rental was so comfortable and stylishly equipped that we could easily have spent most of our time in the house and immediate grounds! Green Gates comprises the perfect balance of classic Victorian style, decor and comfort with high end appliances such as washer, drier and fridge, making the necessary domestic elements of the holiday as smooth and straightforward as one could hope for. The owners have achieved this whilst avoiding the aesthetic clash common in fully functional period properties. The interesting objects strewn naturally about the property and the literary themed bedrooms continually enhanced the experience as we absorbed them throughout our stay. We took many of the recommendations from the Green Gates booklet, all of which contributed to a hugely enjoyable week. The beaches, restaurants (where the fish and seafood equals, indeed perhaps surpasses the best I've had anywhere) were ideal. Hyannis is a pretty local port town, as mainstream as it gets with shops and a choice of restaurants, and Province Town and its surrounding natural beauty at the tip of the Cape was well worth the scenic hour and a half drive. The owners were in close enough proximity to be quickly available to answer any questions and expand on recommendations with their wealth of local knowledge and were extremely kind and welcoming yet completely non-intrusive. I cannot recommend this holiday rental and location highly enough. We will be returning! Thank you Dan P and family!

“Green Gates is Perfect!”
Reviewed 28 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

If you want to have a relaxing vacation on the Cape, I can’t imagine anything better than Green Gates. We spent an amazing week there with four other couples. There was room to spare and the location off 6A was the perfect balance of convenience and peacefulness. The very spacious home is charming, unbelievable equipped, and impeccably maintained. It’s obvious that the owners take great pride in this historic estate and have planned carefully to ensure that guests have a fabulous stay. We’ll be back!

“Beautifully Renovated Old Captain's House”
Reviewed 18 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I want to start by saying I was surprised that this beautiful home was still available when I found the time to book our vacation. The home was perfect for our entire family (12 of us all together). The kitchen was large, had old charm with high end appliances. The quaint dining room was perfect for us to eat dinner together, laugh, and create special memories. There were rooms everywhere with big comfy couches and chairs, books, games, you name it these owners had it. I felt at home as soon as I walked through the door!. They even had a complimentary bottle of wine waiting for us on the kitchen table. The renovation of the home took nothing away from the old charm and character of the home. We will definitely come back to this home when we return to the Cape!

Liked best: I loved the high end appliances mixed with the old charm of the home.
Liked least: The outside patio area...the area was to small for the amount of people the house holds and the lack of outside lighting.

“Great girls getaway week!”
Reviewed 8 August 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We had a wonderful time. Loved the beaches, whale watching, ferry to Martha's Vineyard, great restaurants and fun shopping trips. We all have great memories of our trip to Cape Cod. So much room so we all enjoyed our time together and also quiet reading time when needed! - club friends for over fifty years, Donna, Janet, Sue, Janet, Linda, Sue, Arlene, and Linda

“charming, classic Cape Cod experience”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We came from New Mexico for a week and were looking for a different environment with new experiences. We were rewarded at Green Gates with a perfect combination of authentic Cape Cod feel and modern amenities such as AC, WiFi, and kitchen appliances. The whale watching was phenomenal out of nearby Yarmouth. The result was a very relaxing and enjoyable week. The many rooms are perfect for a large group because there was ample room for quiet reading or conversation and louder interaction at the same time.

“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Green Gates is not the first house we've stayed in along the Cape, but it's certainly one the BEST! Fully spacious for our 10 adult gathering, we filled 5 bedrooms and had a room room to spare! Our crew loved to cook together and nothing was missing in the kitchen that we needed, from cooking pans and utensils to plenty of plates/dishes/silverware for a full day of eating, right down to the crackers and picks for eating lobster!
The historic house is quaint and interesting but lacked nothing, including internet. There is a library to choose from (in case you didn't choose a book from one of the literary named bedrooms), games for folks of all ages, beach chairs/towels/sunscreen, a patio with a gas grill to cook out, along with a patio table and an extra long picnic table to boot.
It's well within reach of many amenities, from strolls along the bay, to inner ponds, to galleries, ice cream shops, stores and other historic museums and houses. Just a short drive to the eco tours, boating, and whale watching. About an hour drive to P-town.
The caretakers are attentive and interesting folk as well - thoroughly enjoyable! Great for families even with small children, and adults alike. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

“Central location, lots of living space and a great kitchen.”
Reviewed 24 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We had a large group of 10 adults and we had PLENTY of room to spread out. I don't think we even used all the rooms in the house! We cooked in every night in a kitchen that seemed to lack for nothing -- more than enough dishes, cutlery, glasses, knives, cutting boards, etc so we did not have to panic about getting the dishwasher loaded and unloaded before every meal. We loved being able to cook on a gas stove. The gas grill with an extra propane tank outside was also really thoughtful to have available. The new washer and dryer was also a plus with enough beach towels for everyone. The bathrooms were in great condition and super roomy so it made sharing easy. The house has many shade trees on the lot but is also readily accessible to all sorts of shops and amenities. We did the EcoTour and Whale Watching trips while we were there since the harbor was just a short drive down the road. This house was perfect for those of us that wanted to read quietly, play cards until the wee hours or explore the area. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was very quiet and very efficient. The Sunday to Sunday booking was a blessing as Saturday traffic getting onto Cape Cod looked pretty busy.
