What I'm not buying (renting) this weekend



4 BRs: 2 kings, 4 twins, queen aerobed; sleeps 9; 3 baths. On salt water, walk to a salt water beach, deck/porch/patio, BBQ-grill, outdoor shower, washer&dryer, dishwasher, microwave, coffeemaker, linens included, cable TV, VCR or DVD, CD player, fireplace, high speed internet, no pets, handicap accessibility, no smoking.


The quiet lane, the light breeze, the water view...
Whenever we arrive at the house (fighting traffic on Rt. 3 for 2+ hours), the first thing we do is step onto the deck and look out over the bay. And every time, with just a deep breath, we feel our stress head the way of the wind. (Calgon, take me away!)
Located in the popular oceanside community of Pochet, this home has something for everyone…
For the extended family: 1.5 acres, four bedrooms, three bathrooms, fresh linens and towels, three separate decks, a new kitchen, a spacious living room, a dining room table for eight, and ample parking.
For the head chef: Our kitchen was remodeled just this spring with new granite countertops, breakfast island, gas range, microwave, floors and lighting. Because we ourselves are passionate cooks, this kitchen is well-equipped with spices and staple appliances. (Forget that. Does the pizza place or the seafood restaurant deliver?) We even have a Weber grille. "

I should add that you can walk to a private quiet beach, not far from Nauset Beach.

One week in August is still available at $4500. Heck, since I didn’t buy the $7999 sewing machine last week, I can afford this!

The family has gone to the Cape the past few years, though not to this rental. This would be a definite step up from the 2 10 by 10 foot bedrooms with knotty pine panelling and chenille bedspreads on lumpy mattresses. A kitchen with no countertops and castoff aluminum pans. Ants optional.

Virtually saved: $4500 plus gas money plus $50 in plastic beach toys.
Next week: I promise something more affordable.

I love it that the name of the website is weneedavacation.com. Yeah we do! Even though you are passionate chefs, i'd not hire someone to clean up. Have a great time! Still can't stop thinking about that sewing machine... I think I had a dream about it :)

And here I am just 3 miles from Pleasant Bay. In fact you can walk to Nauset beach from our house. If you can walk 1 1/2 miles that is. I will tell you that the trip home is uphill. And a rather steep one at that.

If you can get here for $50.00 in gas, I have a guest room. Being from Virginia originally I am accustomed to saying - "Ya'll come"
