The house is close to the beach and is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It was very clean and nicely decorated. There was a very big deck in back that was good for eating dinner etc. All of the beds were comfortable. It was a 10 minute ride to Hyannis where we shopped and ate out. There were a lot of things to do in the area. There is a creek nearby that we kayaked out to Cape Cod bay. We rented kayaks right down the street from the creek. It was also close to Sandy Neck Beach which was nice. It seemed to be a very family friendly area.
