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.

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.
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.
