What Guests Say

People go to bed in January thinking about how great it’s going to be on the Cape this summer. For us, the most rewarding part about Pretty Picky Properties is helping discriminating individuals and families experience the Cape Cod vacation of their dreams. So far, so good, as you can see from the comments we hear from our guests:

  • “This will be our third season renting on the Cape.  Before using Pretty Picky, we rented a Brewster house through VRBO/Home Away and was disappointed with our experience, so we went with  Pretty Picky after that! “

  • “We’ve rented many times before on the Cape, be we never had the agent meet us at the property and give us the key and a personal guided tour. You guys are too much!” 
  • “Thank you for letting us be guests in this beautiful home. The two weeks just flew by, and the kids are bugging us to sign up for next summer already.” 
  •  “We’re like most people.  We want to be on the beach.  That’s why we always go to prettypicky.com first.  You’ve got all the best places!” 
  •  “Your descriptions were perfect, the house is perfect. Our whole week was perfect – including the weather.”(EDITORIAL COMMENT: THE WEATHER WE USUALLY CAN’T CONTROL.) 
  • “We’ve been renting through Pretty Picky Properties for 3 years now and plan to make it a yearly occurrence. Their professionalism and personal attention is fantastic…it’s almost the equivalent of having a friend recommend a place to you and then take care of the details once you’ve decided on it. They make the entire process of the vacation a little bit easier and I love that they handpick the houses, which really do all have unique aspects for a picky renter.” 
  • “We have been dealing with Pretty Picky for over 10 years.  We found you by accident in our first rental, which happened to be next door to your own cottage.  Since then, your properties have increased, to many towns and many levels of rentals. Your clients now run the gamut from “cozy cottages” to upscale expensive homes with swimming pools – homes for every budget level.  Over the years, we have rented 5 different houses, almost all of them multiple times. They have been increasing in size as our family has grown, but always right on the beach.  We have never regretted a single moment of any of these houses. We have never felt frustrated or disappointed or had to deal with any problems, even through a Nor’easter or hurricane.  You have always been helpful in selecting just the right place for us. The rental agreements have always been straightforward and easy to understand. No matter how many questions we have, you always find the answer. Arrival and departure directions are always clear and right there when you need them.  Houses are always clean and organized in time for arrival.  If a problem of any kind arises, you are right there to fix it immediately or arrange for a repairman the same day. You are always responsive to concerns or requests to improve a property.  No matter what the situation, you are always friendly, helpful and eager to solve the problem. We trust your company so much, we even recommended you to our best friends to manage their new, upscale Cape home in the rental season. They were very happy with the level of service and care they received. We cannot say enough good things about Pretty Picky! Over the years, we regard you all as our friends and hope that relationship will continue for many years to come. “Pretty Picky” and “Cape Cod” happily go together in our family.  We hope you will expand to other areas of the Cape in the future so you can make even more families as happy as we are!” 
  • “The cottage was everything you said it was and more. And THANKS (I guess) for the tips on where the locals eat – we gained five pounds! Let’s hope the tan helps hide it.” 
  •  “It was so nice to finally meet you after all the emails and phone conversations. You have a great service, a great family business going.” 
  • “Thanks so much for the cell phone call en route. You helped us miss a lot of traffic with your alternate route suggestion!”
