About Sherry J Martin

We've lived in Falmouth for most of our lives, so now we enjoy providing bright, clean living spaces for short- or long-term visitors. We have several properties and will be happy to discuss them with you by phone at (508)527-8272.

This 1900's farm house was completely renovated in 2007 with all modern conveniences. Guests love this friendly neighborhood. This is an active music, theater and graphic arts community. I am a photographer and musician and keep track of local activities and events.

Scientists and students are welcome for close proximity to Woods Hole Oceanographic, the Marine Biological Laboratories and the USGS facilities. Parking is available for two cars and/or bicycles. There is no public transportation on this road, so you will need your own vehicle.

Sherry J Martin purchased this farmhouse in 2005

Why Sherry J Martin chose Falmouth

We have two second floor private bedrooms (one with king-size bed, one with 2 twin beds) with the possibility of another single bedroom and separate bath, plus sitting room with small refrigerator, sink, stove top, microwave, toaster oven and Wi-Fi connection. Fresh tea or coffee is available with Keurig machine.

The first floor living room with two couches, a wood fireplace and TV is available for evening comfort. Three season glassed-in porch for relaxing 'outdoors' on cool days. In the summer, there's a hot tub on the back porch near a gas grill for dining al fresco by arrangement. Every season is lovely in Falmouth!

What makes this farmhouse unique

Falmouth is known for its great restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries. You will never go hungry in this town!

You will want to have your own car to get around and see the Cape. Of course, there are local taxis for short trips or longer trips to the airport.

While Falmouth water is considered completely potable, we have added a complete home water filtering system - just to be on the safe side!

A small pet may be considered for an extra fee.

Excellent vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here between Christmas and New Year's. The owners were very nice. The home was clean, roomy and charming. We especially loved the fire place. The location is great: easy access to Downtown Falmouth, the shops and restaurants, the beach and the ferry to the Islands. We would definitely consider staying there again. Thank you for your hospitality and a wonderful experience.

Great apartment with lots of charm

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with our stay here in Falmouth. The apartment is very large, well maintained, and charming. The screened in sun porch is beautiful, perfect place to hang out and watch an evening storm blow through. The master bedroom is large with a comfortable

King bed. We didn't need it, but the second bedroom looked equally as cozy. The kitchen is somewhat limited, but everything you need for hearing up leftovers, keeping some lunch items or snacks, or making a simple breakfast. Both bathrooms were a good size, upstairs with a full tub and downstairs has a standup shower. Quick walk to a private beach, which was lovely but rocky. Sandier beaches aren't far, but we

Opted to drive up to the national seashore as we had our dog. Sherry was a wonderful host and I would certainly stay with her again.

Caring Owner

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunately, my wife and I were not able to stay at this property, but within minutes Sherry Martin, the owner, found another of her properties

for us to rent. It was very comfortable, and quickly felt like home. ISherry was more than attentive to all our personal needs, even helping us to take part in the social life in Falmouth and to take advantage of the "hidden treasures" of the town. She made it possible to for us to have a wonderful vacation. I can suggest that if you plan to rent a vacation home in Falmouth that you contact Sherry; she will work energetically to find the right place for you.

Wonderful experience

  • 4 of 5

We rented the premises for the Labor Day long weekend. It was a great and relaxing experience. Beach was walking distance, the shops were only minutes away, and the ferry for Martha's Vineyard it was only 5 min away. The kids were happy and so were we!

Nice and clean but not what I expected.

  • 3 of 5

In the amenities it specifically listed "beach view","ocean view", and "water view". This was very misleading since There's no water to be seen from this property. It's a 6 minute walk down the side of a busy road, then a turn on another road, THEN The walkway to the beach. If I would have known where the location truly was, I would not have rented this property. The beach was rocky and not nice. We had to drive to a different beach 10 minutes away to find one with some sand we could enjoy. The house is very pretty, but the kitchen had a little dorm fridge and you have one burner to cook with, which made eating at the house less than convenient for a family of 4. The amenities also listed HD TV. The TV was an old box tv that didn't even have the capability of using the HD that may have been available at the property.

Gorgeous vacation apartment

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful apartment is attached to an equally beautiful home in the exclusive section of Sippewissett in Falmouth. The location gives you easy access to all attractions...beaches, ferries, restaurants, shopping. The private and quiet location is perfect for relaxing. The apartment owner is wonderful & most accommodating. I liked this rental so much I've booked it again & now consider it my home away from home when I'm visiting my home town.

Owner's Response: Melinda, you are a perfect guest, but more than that, we think of you as part of the family. Other hosts will be happy to know that you and your dog are the most respectful and considerate guests we've ever had. Everything was back in order and completely tidy before you left. You are always welcome here and we're looking forward to your return next year!
