The condo was a good home base for our many adventures on the Cape. The private beach is in Nantucket Sound so it’s not a typical ocean beach. We enjoyed the sunrise but found other beaches to play on. The condo is secluded, private and quiet. The water pressure is great. I was able to do laundry daily. There are ants, but they only appeared when I left out something that attracted them, like donuts on the counter or a spoon with jam was left unwashed in the sink, basically if you’re a slob you will see ants. It is 900 sq feet if you’re unaware of how small that is, it’s cozy. Although it sleeps 8 really it’s perfect for a couple and two small kids, so it was perfect for us.
I love having guests like your family. Thank you for your kind and earnest feedback and I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay at my condo. I hope you come and re visit Maushop next year as I would love to have you stay at my property again!
We had a nice time, the area was nice for the kids to ride bikes around. Live music at the marketplace was fun. Only drawback was the condition of the beach; all rocks and seaweed! We found another beach nearby so overall we had a great trip! Thanks Zara
Thank you Michael. I enjoyed having your family stay at my place!
Well Below Expectations
The listing gives an impression of bright, clean comfortable accommodations. In actuality the house is tiny, posing challenges for moving about and storing basic kitchen items. My teenagers had difficulty sleeping in beds as the mattress springs were palpable when touching with your hand which is why we left our vacation early. It’s dark inside all the time and carpets were dingy. We had to vacuum sand on arrival and clear hair from a shower drain. The daily focus was staying out of the home. Unfortunately the “ private “ beach was also tiny and rock and seaweed riddled so we drove and payed for the public beaches instead. Homeowner responsive but can’t make up for the substandard accommodations.
I am surprised to hear about all this in your review of my property. You asked if you could check in early and I went out of my way to accommodate you. You also never told me you left early nor did you complain about the beach when we spoke/texted. You also told me that you liked the interior aesthetic and that I had some nice touches.
You said the bunk bed springs were palpable. They are NOT palpable. This is the design of the beds and they are perfectly situated for that room as I explained to you. I have had many guests stay at my property with teenagers and they have been very comfortable and happy. I have advertised clearly the square footage of my condo. Yes, it is small so next time if you are looking for a big, spacious place to stay, I highly recommend you look at the square footage first and then book your stay. It is extremely unfair to give my property this review when I fully disclosed the size and you were aware of it.
My house was thoroughly clean. There was no hair in the tub as my housekeeper cleans it well and she cleans other units in Maushop. Nor was there any sand.
Seaweed and other items in the ocean are beyond my control. Guests love the private beach at Maushop Village. Perhaps it did not meet your high standards. Many guests come to Maushop every summer and absolutely love the tranquil and beautiful environment, including the beach.

Another Perfect Week at Maushop Village
This was the sixth different property we've stayed at in Maushop Village and is one of our favorites... it was clean, neat and very well maintained with comfortable furnishings and great amenities. Our daughters enjoyed the queen-sized bunk beds, and we enjoyed the upstairs master suite. Having two flatscreen TVs was a nice plus. The shaded front patio was perfect for morning coffee and evening dinner. Zara was a great host... texting us upon arrival and calling us two days ahead of time to make arrangements for a maintenance worker to address an issue reported by a previous tenant. All in all a great stay and a property we will consider on our future visits.
Hi Ken and Sarah,
I am so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay at my unit and that it met your expectations . Thank you for providing a thoughtful and honest review.
I also enjoyed having you as my guests. You took care of my property and after your check out, it was found to be in the same condition as I gave it to you. You are the perfect guests!
I was also glad to hear that your teenage daughters found the first floor bedroom w/ bunk beds to be spacious and comfortable. I also reviewed your stay and gave you a 5/5 star rating as my guests! Please come and re-visit my home! I would love for you to stay again at my place!
Enjoy the rest summer.
With kind regards and much gratitude,
Fell Below Expectations
Upon arrival we thought it could have been a lot cleaner given the cleaning fee (similar to other review). It looked rushed (superficial cleaning only) and it was not up to our standards of "clean". The patios needed to be fully swept and cleaned (I spent a morning doing this). The cushions on the back patio were filthy and we wouldn't sit on them. As a result of the description we did not bring any sand toys and what was there had not been used in some time (the boogie boards were in great shape). We went out and bought our own sand toys for our youngest daughter. The chairs had some wear and tear but again serviceable. During our stay we had an ant issue, and found them all over the counter, cutting boards, etc. I had to go out and buy traps. The owner did what she could to contact property manager, etc. and we were told they were common. I don't think finding an ant on your child's toothbrush is "common" in my book. We found the upgrades to the unit accurately described. The unit itself is under the shade of two large trees and we stayed comfortable during a very hot week. As far as Maushop itself; the location to the shops were great, but the water was filled with seaweed the week we were there and it is extremely rocky (we had to go out and buy water shoes). As a result of the erosion from some storms they obviously had to truck in some sand and it left a layer of dust everywhere. We were told we were the only people complaining about this (we talked to other renters and this was a common theme with the seaweed and sand). This is not something the owner can control, but combined with the other issues we decided to leave early and spend our last couple of days elsewhere. There was an open dialogue with the owner throughout and she was overall pleasant to deal with. I think at the price point we had paid we expected more and it fell below our expectations all around. Sure the unit was recently renovated, but the "experience" we had was negative. Expensive ceiling fans and new appliances can't make up for that. Some of this could have been controlled (cleanliness of unit) and some of it couldn't (beach and seaweed). The overall rating reflects both of those things, if the beach was in better shape it would be higher and we could have dealt with the other things.
I remember you messaged me a couple of weeks before arriving at my property trying to cancel your reservation and asking me if I would give you a full refund. Your husband also called me on the last day of your stay at my property asking for a refund.
Your main concern was the condition of the beach. I called management to ask if anyone else complained about the beach condition and was told that no one complained about the beach. After you checked out, I drove to my property and did not see any ants. If the ants were on the kitchen counter as you told me over the phone, how did they end up on your daughter’s toothbrush that I assume was in the bathroom?
For those of you who are looking for an accurate depiction of the beach, please read my reviews and other reviews on Homeaway/VRBO when you search “Maushop Village” and you will get an accurate, overwhelmingly positive depiction of the beautiful, private beach the community of Maushop takes great pride in owning.
The location of this property is one of the best you will find. The view from the hill overlooking the beach is spectacular.
Its unfortunate the property does not match the location. The unit is very tiny and while that is accurately depicted in the write-up there are some things that I feel need to be addressed. Primarily, this is not a unit that sleeps 6, not unless 4 of the 6 are little children. Given the tight quarters and the fact that there is no A/C in this development there should be better airflow in the unit.
All in all I would not recommend this unless you are a family with small children.
I am sorry to hear you were so disappointed. First of all, AC units are not allowed in Maushop Village. They are too noisy and do not fit in with the quiet, serene and quaint village culture the community likes to preserve.
My unit can comfortably sleep up to 6 people. My living room sofa is a sofabed that pulls out and can sleep two adults easily. Perhaps you choose not to use it and that is of course your choice. I also have double sized bunk beds that can sleep up to four guests (sorry, but not only for small children). Then I have a master suite upstairs perfect for a couple to use with its own private bathroom. So technically, it can sleep up to 8 people but I limit it to 6 because it is a small space.
I have two very high end ceiling fans that provide plenty of cool air into the unit. In addition, I have some shade from a tree so the direct sun is not on top of my unit. I have never had anyone complain about the space being tight or lack of airflow. Perhaps it did not meet your high expectations and I suppose you can't please all people all the time but I recommend my viewers to read my previous 5/5 star reviews to get an accurate sense of my property.
