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

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.
