Joan Talmadge - My husband Jeff and I created in 1997, shortly after buying our Cape home. My background includes teaching fifth grade for 8 years and writing and editing educational publications for 15. I get great joy from helping fellow homeowners successfully rent their homes. Jeff and I are proud to have two of our three grown children working for, truly a family-run business. For me, the Cape and Islands are magical all times of the year -- whether it's walking on Nauset Beach, playing golf, or enjoying family and friends. Email Joan


    • Hi, Marie, the tax applies to any guests who stay in your home starting on July 1, 2019, or later. So, if you’re referring to vacationers who stay with you in April, May, or June, no, they would NOT have to pay the tax this year.
