Anyone interested in Peanut Free Cape Cod vacation rental?
I emailed Chris here at PA.com before posting this to see if it would be ok to bring this up, being sort of an advertisment and all, and got his go ahead, (Thanks Chris!) so here goes:
My husband and I and our 3 young boys have a vacation home in Harwich, which is in the middle of Cape Cod, Massachusetts. My kids are 9, 6, and 3. Middle boy has class 6 peanut allergy, and avoiding all tree nuts, diagnosed at around 1 yr old, so we have been successfully dealing with it for quite some time. Our Cape home is as safe and nut-free as our home home. We do not rent it out, or allow extended family there without us being there. Yes, we're mean, but it is our sanctuary, and we don't want to worry about what was cooked in our safe pans or spilled on our safe rug, etc...
We are not there all of the time, and it sits empty a lot. Would any of you PA.com folks be interested in renting our cottage for a late spring, summer, or early fall getaway?
We have never done this, and would not consider renting to non-allergic people. The only families who would truly understand what we have to deal with are peanut allergic themselves.
Oh yeah, we deal with cat/dog allergies, so no pets, and the 3 boys have asthma, so the place is as asthma friendly as we can possibly get.
Some pertinant details:
3 bedrooms--1 queen, 1 has bunkbeds, 1 has full sized crib soon to be replaced with toddler bed
all beds have allergy mattress encasements
fully remodeled/asthma friendly/special filters on ducts
air conditioned! full house, new unit
small but normal kitchen with microwave, stove, full sized fridge
you name it, it's probably there
1/2 mile to beach
in the middle of everything cape cod
So what do you think?
Might there be any interest?
We want to test the waters before coming up with a formal "plan"
