Reviews of Pier 7 Condominiums
South Yarmouth, Massachusetts
Pier 7 is a smaller timeshare with knowledgeable local people spearheading the operation that desire to share their knowledge of the Cape Cod communities! Traveling to Provincetown for whale watching or s day trip to the two islands of Martha's Vineyard and/or Nantucket is easy as day trips (or over nights) with ferries out of Hyannis! Lobsters and seafood abundant at many local restaurants nearby and numerous shops and antiques shops too! The indoor pool with access to outdoors is nice but small / kids loved it / hot tub is great though. Great grilling areas near playground on property are helpful when you just feel like staying home! Beds are comfy - bathrooms are roomy. Enjoyed the quaint villages of New England znd all that the Cspe has to offer! Definitely would go again.
The resort overlooks a marina and the Parker River. The units and grounds are very well maintained. The studio units sleep just 2 people, the one bedrooms have two queen sized beds and a queen pull out in the living room. The two full baths are a nice addition. Great indoor pool, whirlpool and sauna. Sundeck, grill area, play area. The only negatives are that the town does not allow for cooking except for the microwave and hot pot and being located on Route 28, it gets a lot of ambulances from the lower cape. A nice seafood restaurant with entertainment is next door and there is a fish market which will cook your lobster for you! The staff is THE BEST! This is a great Mid Cape location close to everything.
My wife and I recently stayed at the Pier 7 condominiums on an exchange through RCI. The apartment had furniture with holes in the sofa and one of the side chairs, wallpaper peeling off the walls and a semi repaired crack in one of the bathtubs (I have pictorial proof of all these statements). Additionally, even though we had reserved a weeks vacation we were charged a fee of $35 for "non scheduled" cleaning of the rooms. I gave it a one star rating only because RED WEEK does not have anything lower.
The grounds and rooms were very good. Staff is friendly and caring. Towel/trash pick-up daily.
Great location, rooms have beautiful view of the ocean, centrally located to everything in Cape Cod
The 1-bedroom units are quite large. 2 queen sized beds, sofa bed in living room. Lots of closet space. Televisions in bedroom and in living room; 2 full bathrooms. Microwave, small fridge, toaster, blender, coffee maker and hotpot. Plenty of glassware and cutlery.
Indoor pool and jacuzzi. Playground for the kids and several grills. Movies to rent for $1.
Kids activities are planned for each day (summertime), such as tie-dye t-shirts, pool games, gel candle making. One evening was toasting hotdogs and s'mores over a camp fire.
Pier 7 is great if you are looking for a home base and taking day trips sight-seeing and such. Very centrally located, and Pirate's Cove mini-golf is right across the street. Front desk offers guests beach passes to town beaches. (Try Parker River beach - on the ocean, great sand and lots of parking).
Not a lot of green space on premises, however abuts Parker River, and folks were fishing; walking path. There is a marina at the rear of the property.
Grounds were nicely maintained, beautiful flower beds and window boxes. Unit is an older motel that has been renovated, (two motel rooms converted into one-bedroom current units; they were just redecorated in 2003). Trash collected and fresh towels delivered daily.
Walking distance to several restaurants; Christopher's is nice with the kids; Jerry's Seafood is a small local place with good food year round.
Stayed 1st week of June 2006 in STUDIO unit with kitchenette & bathroom. Decor has been updated-carpet, paint & furniture were newer & place was clean but not fancy. It had 4 plates, glasses & silverware,microwave,mini frig,mini sink & closet, queen bed, loveseat, table/chairs,TV,phone,chair w/footstool - all fit into an original sized hotel room. Towels changed daily. Bldg appears to be older 2 story motel unit right on Route 28 (mini harbor behind it). Has pool and whirlpool in a bldg by office for use until 9pm. My top story room leaked due to much rain this Spring at the Cape. I called mgmt emergency number (from office door) and she came in middle of night to place me in a lower floor unit where I stayed all week. Next day she said some shingles had blown off roof & let some water in. They didn't apologize much but did move me to an open room after I asked at 3:30am! Has great central location on Cape - great for my day trips to Chatham, Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard, Hyannis, Provincetown and the upper villages of Sandwich, Barnstable, etc. along bay side. Economical rental. Would stay here again.
Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. Near everything.
The unit was much bigger than we expected, nicely decorated, and well-equipped with plates, glasses and cutlery. Barbecues were clean and easy to use. Beautiful flowers make it attractive.
Beach passes were available from the helpful staff at reception, and there was a nice cheese and wine on Sunday afternoon.
Really central, and within easy walking distance of good restaurants, and an excellent mini golf across the road. We would certainly go back.
