CLASSIC CAPE COD BEACHFRONT IN WEST HARWICH

Harwich - Harwichport House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms - Sleeps 16-18 - Private Beach

Overlooking its own private white sand beach on Nantucket Sound, this private enclave features a 3 bed / 3 bath main house and 2-story 3 bed / 2 bath annex. The rambling casual summer house easily accommodates 16 in its 6 bedrooms. Located on Nantucket Sound, which has the warmest, gentlest water on Cape Cod, the beach house is ideal for families with children. The property works well for large gatherings as there are areas where everyone can be together as well as separate living spaces to get away and read a good book. The prevailing southwesterly breezes off Nantucket Sound in the summer months fill the air with the refreshing sounds and smells of the sea. Evenings, enjoy incomparable sunsets and watch the moon rise over the water and glimpse the glimmer of lights beyond the horizon. Spend your vacation in this paradise of relaxed living in the best tradition of Olde Cape Cod. Click here for more info: http://www.capehouserealestate.com/nantucket-sound-waterfront-rental.asp

There is a double futon in the living area of the west wing for 2 extra sleeping spaces.

Review Title : 215813 - "Dynamic layout"



"In July 2008 my family and parents stayed here. It was the perfect time of year.



The property layout is great. There are two large common areas(rooms) where we couuld all gather for games/TV/movies. The rooms were the living room and the sun room. Additionally, the sun room was great for dinner. We set up one large table and all ate together in one room which given the group size was great for such a large family group. In additon to these two rooms of course was the outside courtyard which also was available however we chose not to use it for dinner.



The bedrooms are great in that they are situated in such a way that they are private and the noise from common areas does not reach them. So some of our group could go to bed while others stayed late into the evening/morning. Also great was the central air so all could escape the summer heat during the day but primarily the humidity at night.



Located mid-cape allowed for quick day trips to either end of cape.



The waterfront does not have much surf so body surfing is not an option. However we still did group swimming. Seaweed is present. But being New Englanders that did not phase us.



Plenty of beach chairs, beach toys were provided. One item youu may want to bring is a full LP tank for the grill so as to avoid having to run out just when starting a diner.



Made for a greate memorable family experience where we all could share time while allowing time away/privacy as wanted.



One note. Garbage is picked up at end of week. So I would recommend lobster/seafood feast(s) for later in week so as to avoid the smell for a week.



A great rental for families who want to spend time together while at the same time have seperate private time.

CAN'T GET ANY CLOSER TO THE BEACH!!!!

Can't get any closer to the beach!!!!
  • 4 of 5
If you want to be right on the beach, this is your summer rental! I recently rented with 3 other families, all with small children under 3. The proximity and privacy of the beach was perfect. Plenty of sand toys and beach chairs already at the home. The landscaping needed some upkeep, but the sand pit in the backyard was a big hit with the kids. It is an older home but if you don't mind a little wear and tear, this is your place!

GREAT LOCATION AND FIT FOR OUR FAMILILY

  • 4 of 5
This was a terrific fit for us to put four families and a teen-aged guest, total of 18 people including 9 children under 9. The crow's nest apartment was perfect for the grand parents and the main house was perfect for us to eat together and for the family to engage in conversation or read a book. Bring an electrical outlet adaptor to turn two pronged outlets into three pronged outlets so you can use your lap tops easily, other wise the wi fi is fine. The location also provides for easy shopping in Harwich or Chatham and quick trips to Brewster for other cape activities. I highly recommend it for family reunions and in fact am booking it for next year.

FABULOUS WATERFRONT RENTAL FOR LARGE OR SMALL GROUP

  • 5 of 5
Our family has enjoyed using this house for a large gathering (18 people) in the spring and a small one (4 people) in the fall. It was excellent on both occasions since the two separate houses can accommodate large or small groups. Each of the houses is self-sufficient for cooking as is the Crow’s Nest efficiency apartment, and all are clean and well-maintained. The houses and property have that "Cape Cod" feel. The property is right on the water, Nantucket Bay, with its own beach access. The nice, sandy beach allows for long walks at low tide and great swimming for adults and kids. It is a perfect spot for beautiful sunsets and sunrises. The neighborhood is great for walking – it is level with limited local traffic. There is privacy from the adjacent properties. Plenty of off-street parking is available. The kitchens are well-equipped and there are adequate beach chairs, toys, patio furniture and a gas grill. Harwich Port is a central location for access to Cape Cod Bay and Atlantic Ocean beaches. The property is convenient to a number of good local restaurants as well as to local shopping.

ANOTHER WONDERFUL VACATION IN THIS BEAUTIFUL HOME

  • 5 of 5
I was happy to see my review from 2009 posted, and I decided to write an updated review since we just stayed there last month, June 2011. The weather is unpredictable, and this time we had 3 1/2 days of sun and 3 1/2 days of rain, at least off and on. That never affects the wonderful time we have; we just plan our days accordingly and let the weather do what it does! We still love this house and its amenities! The new beds are fine, except when it's all adults..... no one wants to climb up to the top bunk! We loved everything again this year as in the past.... there are a few upgrades that are nice, such as the new washer and dryer, another outdoor glass table with umbrella and chairs, nice new matching lounge and straight outdoor chairs. The rooms are comfortable and there's plenty of space for all of us, even when we're in the same room! The new table in the sunroom opened up to make room for all of us, and that's where we ate every meal. We miss the old gnarled tree next to the big rock in the middle of the lawn, as it provided a little shade. Now there's none unless you sit at one of the tables under the umbrella. We miss having a land-line phone, as we always used calling cards to call home since cellular service is very poor in this location. It seems that having a land line makes it possible to call for emergency services and know they can find you just from the phone you used to make the call. This year there were 14 of us, and we made a little "nest" area in the living room of the West Wing for the 7th couple. As the bunk beds are all one piece, the top bunks weren't removable to use as extra beds. The couple that stayed in the new "nest" had brought a blow-up mattress, thank goodness, so that was their bed. The futon in the den could possibly be comfortable, but there is no privacy there.... and as the closest bathrooms are within the bedrooms off the den, the bathroom at the other end of the house would have to be used. The futon in the West Wing living room is extremely uncomfortable to sit on and get out of, and wasn't an option as a bed either. The swimming was wonderful every day, rain or shine! And as usual, we hated to leave... our week always flies by too fast. We definitely plan to come back next year, which seems like a long stretch since it's only July right now. So we'll enjoy the rest of the Summer where we live and the great memories of our time on the Cape in this wonderful home! It's a privilege to stay there.

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This property was great. There are 2 separate houses but we only used the smaller house to sleep as there was plenty of room in the main house for everyone to hang out. The living area is roomy and spacious with beautiful floors and high ceilings. There are essentially 2 dining rooms - one with a wall of windows overlooking the water - and there was plenty of room for all of us to sit and eat. The kitchen has everything that you'd need and there is also a washer & dryer which came in handy. The backyard leads right to stairs that lead down to the beach. Absolutely beautiful views. We would definitely stay here again!

GUESTBOOK COMMENT

This June will be our third year in this amazing home! There are 12 of us, family and friends who have been vacationing on Cape Cod for almost 25 yea...
  • 5 of 5
This June will be our third year in this amazing home! There are 12 of us, family and friends who have been vacationing on Cape Cod for almost 25 years! Our 20-year rental in Brewster was sold, so we had to start all over again...... and you know how hard it is to teach old dogs new tricks! This is the third rental we found since then, and our search is over, as it is PERFECT! It's right on the water with a grassy yard overlooking the sandy beach ...... we see a few bunnies munching on tender plants on occasion...... there's lots of room indoors and out to lounge, read, play Pinochle, eat the amazing food we seem to come up with every year....... the house has five bedrooms plus an upstairs efficiency apartment that my mother and sister have claimed as theirs.... and we all have all the room we need, privacy or togetherness any time! Morning coffee out in the yard looking out at the water is absolutely THE BEST! I don't even think we've had more than one or two days of rain in our two years so far. But if it does happen, the house itself is light and roomy and we won't even mind then! It's wonderful to be able to count on a place that is consistently great every year..... all we need is our linens and clothes, camera and a toothbrush, and we're ready for the week! The neighborhood is quiet and a great place to walk.... as well as the beach, which is a few houses down from a small town beach. The swimming has been great each year; even during the third week of June we haven't found it too cold to take a dip. Wish we could stay longer!

Map

Car: recommended

Swim at your own private beach. Fish on a party boat or rent a sailboat. Take the ferry to Nantucket from nearby Saquatucket Harbor. Fish on the bridges over the Herring River. Rent bikes and ride along the Cape Cod Rail Trail from Dennis to Wellfleet. Race a go cart at the track at the intersection of Rte 28 and Rte 39. Burn calories on the trampolines. See how good a hitter you are at the batting cages or how good a bumper boat captain at the bumper boat flotilla. Dine at the many fine restaurants in Harwich and Chatham, or enjoy a root beer float at the local A&W. Play golf at one of the finest public courses in the US, Cranberry Valley, or play at one of the best and oldest beginner courses in the US, the Harwich Port Golf Course. Play miniature golf. Play tennis or go antiquing. Look for old books in a used bookstore or sit in the Brooks Free Library, admire the Rogers' groups, and read the New York Times. Swim at a fresh water lake (Long Pond).
