* * * IMPORTANT * * * 2020 WAS FIRST OFFERING OF THIS HOME
FYI & SETTING EXPECTATIONS .... we had several construction projects scheduled and some completed this year but we also encountered many delays due to CV-19 related manufacturing and contractor related impacts.
We were expecting to add new windows throughout and complete the full landscaping as we had over nearly 20 trees removed and the machinery for removal and stump grinding made a bit of a mess in the back yard and so the large deck will be your best choice for outdoor space. This is a comfortable, clean, refreshed and yet very basic rental. The home does not have AC and there is not an outdoor shower at this time.
If you have completely read through the listing and these items are not deal breakers then this could just be the rental for you. The rental rate has been discounted for the summer of 2021 to reflect these points. We are posting this information as full disclosure as we like to have well-informed and happy guests that arrive with realistic expectations and ready for a great Cape Cod Getaway!!
OCCUPANCY TAXES for 2020 - State and local taxes are 14.45% are collected and remitted to the State by Airbnb
You have access to the entire home, deck and as noted the landscaping is not yet complete but the expansive deck with a patio set and umbrella can surely be a great spot to satisfy your outdoor needs.
Other things to note
Your home's interior is guest ready and waiting for your stay. We are however installing new windows over the next few months but of course will not have guests staying with us during that time or during any other exterior renovations. This is a new property for us and being offered here for the first time. We are working furiously to update, refresh and renew the home inside and out helping to make it a great spot for all of our guests to enjoy the Cape. We are undertaking a complete reno next door but will not allow guests to stay with us during such time as it might be disruptive to their stay. We are also undertaking a major landscaping project so the current landscaping might be described as a work in progress.
We require all guests to sign our rental agreement.
