' Thank you so much. Your home is beautiful, views are fabulous and Chatham is wonderful. Wish we lived here! It's been wonderful and hopefully we'll rent from you again soon.'
'We had a wonderful time, the house was perfect, so well equipped with nice linens and towels and loads of kitchenware so it was great for our large group of 20. The furnishings and deck worked so well for a lovely beach group vacation. We couldn't think of anything we would change.'
'I just wanted to let you know what a wonderful time we all had at your house in Chatham last week. What a gorgeous spot! And the layout was perfect for our extended family. Ground-floor facilities for my mother, lots of rooms, two gathering places for large groups inside and the fabulous deck outside, a dining table big enough for all 15 of us, and room to set up croquet on the grass. Add to that perfect weather and the warm water at Hardings, and we were all pinching ourselves all week. Also thank you so much for your quick responses to our questions.'
'I just got back to town after a great time on Cape Cod. The house worked out great for us. We really enjoyed ourselves and the relaxing setting. Everything we needed was there including the lobster pot. Beds were comfortable, nice to have two kitchen spaces and refrigerators, and the dining room was spacious and comfortable (we ate at the house most evenings). Thanks for the nice bottle of wine - we opened it as soon as we arrived and enjoyed it immensely.'
