Overview

Monument Beach House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, stellar views, sleeps 9

The house is in Monument Beach, which is in the town of Bourne. Bourne is a quiet, accessible Cape Cod town which is 'off the beaten path' relative to more well-known towns. It is a classic wooden shingled house with a private beach. We have owned this house for 40 years, we are not property managers.

Please feel free to ask us for an in-person tour of the house, or access to a youtube video of the home. The house is more terrific than is possible to convey here.

The house is relatively large, with a deep porch wrapping around half its perimeter, half of which faces the beach. The house was recently renovated. All of the bedrooms have picture windows, and three of the bedrooms have stellar water views while the fourth looks out on the park.

The house is situated on Phinney's Harbor, which is the first harbor south of the Canal on Buzzards Bay on the Cape side of the Bridge. It is a gorgeous harbor with warm water and terrific conditions for children, sailing, kayaking, and fishing. The house is West facing, and blessed with perfectly stellar sunsets

Adjacent to the property is a park with a jungle gym, swings, a basketball court, tennis courts and a field adequately large for a pick-up game of baseball. One appealing feature of the house is its accessible location. Due to its proximity (4 miles) to the Bourne Bridge, it is easy to get to. One can frequently make the trip to the house from Boston in less than an hour and a half, even on Friday afternoons. This means that if not everyone in the family is on vacation during the rental, everyone can at least be together on the evenings.

Although this is a lovely spot, our home is not available for weddings or parties.

What makes this house unique

Our favorite feature of the house would have to be the beautiful sunsets that light up the sky across the bay in front of the porch. If you have children they will enjoy the playground and the tennis courts adjacent to the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is the second summer that our family -- parents, grandparents and children -- have stayed here, and it has really been perfect for us. There is so much for the children to do: they spend hours looking for sea creatures on the beach and around the jetty, and they are able to play on the adjacent playground or play tennis while the adults watch from the porch or yard, though often we join them. The house has everything, is very clean, and the owners are great. We cooked family dinners each night except for the two times we treated ourselves at The Lobster Trap, five minutes away. The neighborhood is friendly but non-intrusive. We love to walk to Becky's Bakery in the morning and to watch the stunning sunsets from the yard in the evening. It's a great place.

Fabulous location, esp with small kids. House is as described, although the 1/2 bath is a toilet only room off the kitchen. More common space than needed and amazing views! Spent more time at park than beach. Beach was very rocky with sharp shells. Any real water time you would have to walk to town beach - not far. Kitchen well equipped. Great time had by all!

Loved the house and Joan was wonderful! Great location on the Cape, which allowed us to get out sightseeing and getting everywhere we wanted with ease. Definitely recommend and we hope to stay there the next time we come up east!

Wonderful Home

The porch and view is wonderful! The home is very well layed out and there is plenty of room for everyone. We had a wonderful time and the home is located close to Woods Hole for day trips to Martha's Vinyard. The sunsets are stunning.

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
We will never forget 7 Arthur Ave! LOVED IT! The views, the beach, the park, the lawn...PERFECT! The house was the icing on the cake, there were so many rooms and places for everyone(5 adults and 5 kids) to be, it was great! The windows really bring in the perfect breeze, it was ideal. Monument beach area was wonderful to walk around and enjoy the town...we especially loved the Beach Street Bakery! There is a train that goes by and the kids just loved it. The house had everything we needed and was clean. Thank you to the O'Connell family for sharing your amazing house, we hope to visit the Cape again someday!

Thank you from me and my family

Hi David,

A much belated thank you to you and your family. We had a lovely stay in Monument Beach. Your home is probably the most well laid-out and comfortably furnished that we have ever rented (we have rented quite a few!).

Please thank your sister for lending us the tennis rackets and sharing her beach fire. It was really nice to have them next door.

All the best to you and your family.
