The Wellfleet house (according to the owner's profile on vrbo) is at 120 Sandpiper Hill Rd. You should google the address and look at the house and beach that way. I think it's a nice location and more beachy than some other harbor locations.

I know there are not reviews of this house but it was listed on vrbo only last year so the no reviews may not be an indication of anything. I think speaking to the owners is a good way to ask questions and get more information.

Beautiful house and a nice location. I'd definitely stay there.

Glad to hear that #1 may not be a great pick because of its location. Yes, we do usually have at least one extra bedroom available in case my parents decide they'd like to visit (My husband is a saint when it comes to this The rents are surprisingly cheaper than we thought, because it's not in season. We have paid just as much on the shores of Lake Michigan!

I will look at those websites mentioned, and also find out on what beaches any other houses I like are located.

You might also look in Harwich and Harwichport along with Dennisport and also Truro. You can check off beachfront as an option on the two links I suggested.

Just for comparison, I might call a rental realtor in both towns and see what they have to offer. We have rented privately (had to chase owner tof ind a key to the basement), from acquaintences (perfect - but rarely an option) and from a realtor - usually at a somewhat inflated price, but when there was a minor problem, we had someone to call and it was fixed immediately.

Pine Acres Realty in Chatham has some nice rental listings. Sorry I can't offer a Wellfleet name...

Thomas D. Brown real estate in Wellfleet usually has a good selection. Here's a link to Wellfleet realtors from the Chamber of Commerce website:

Thank you all for your comments. After reading everyone's advice, we have decided to go with the Wellfleet house - #2 listed above. I have been communicating with the owner throughout the day, and learned that the house sits on a dead end of a private road with a beach right below. My kids can collect lots of shells and swim if they don't mind the cooler temps. The owner sent me additional photos of the beach and the location of the house, so based on everyone's advice, I feel like I asked the right questions and got the answers I was looking for. The town is only a 15 min. walk and 4 other beaches are closeby as well. I'm sure I'll have additional questions as the trip approaches, so keep an eye out for additional threads!
