Are you ready to pack your bags, hit the road, cross the Canal and RELAX on the Cape? Don’t pack too much – our home is ready to welcome you with all of the amenities to make you getaways as worry free as possible. From linens to beach chairs, towels to beach toys, spices to high chair, it’s all here, so you don’t have to think about it. And there is no extra cost – the rates are all inclusive for the human part of the family (dogs are slightly extra).
Bayview Getaway is child friendly, dog friendly, family friendly and in general, very friendly property that would love to host you this year. We are located on a quiet dead end street, just 5 minute walk to Bayview beach on Lewis Bay. It’s also easy to walk to great restaurants with marina views, hit the ferries to the charming Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard without a thought about fighting for the (expensive) parking spot, walk the kids to a mini-golf or just unwind with a book in the shady backyard.
See our website for extensive details and photos!
For the beach explorer, we provide a free beach parking pass for Barnstable beaches. There are large and small beaches, beaches to keep teens happy (yes, they do exist), beaches perfect for small kids, beaches for windsurfing daredevils, all within 10-15 minute drive.
For families with young children, we have a pack-n-play and booster chair on hand and can provide several other baby paraphernalia on request.
Our home is set up for comfort and flexibility – there are 3 bedrooms, each with a queen bed and one of the upper floor bedrooms also includes 2 twin beds. All bedrooms are equipped with A/C units to keep you comfortable.
The downstairs floor includes an extra spacious bedroom with a sitting area and an entertainment center. There is a full bath, well equipped kitchen with modern appliances and granite countertops, a living/dining room area comfortably sitting 6-8.
Upstairs floor has 2 bedrooms (queen bed in each, and 2 twin beds in one of the two bedrooms) and a full bath with a shower.
Entertainment consists of a 42” flat screen TV with streaming video and cable, DVD player, Playstation, books and games.
Outside there is a porch with sitting for 6, a grill stocked with propane, a large yard with a swing and a sense of peace and tranquility that is hard to come by. The house is a last one on a dead end street, and the street backs into the conservation area, so you will see bunnies in the yard in the twilight hours. Better warn the dog! :)
While Bayview Getaway is situated in a secluded and serene setting, away from hustle and bustle of the town, it's within a walking distance (less than 1 mile) to the spirited Main St. in Hyannis - home to the Kennedy Museum, numerous restaurants, ice cream parlors, bookshops, boutiques, a carousel, and family amusement centers.
Enjoy Thursday night parade or listen to live music in one of the pubs. Take a ferry to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, catch a whale-watching cruise out of Barnstable Harbor, a deep sea fishing expedition from Hyannis, take a drive along Old King's Highway and do a little antiquing, catch a game of golf at any of the nearby golf courses or just enjoy the sea breeze in the backyard.
'What a wonderful place! My boyfriend and I had two other couples join us for a 'Fall Getaway'. We spent a fair amount of time at the house. We enjoyed the very well equipped kitchen, cooking 'comfort food' for the gang. The TV has plenty of channels and we enjoyed doing a puzzle on the coffee table. I brought wine classes and martini glasses, but didn't need them as the house came 'fully equipped! The linens and towels are high quality and luxurious while the home is comfortable and welcoming. We can't wait to come back!' says a group of friends who enjoyed a fall getaway at our home.
'The house was well appointed and comfortable. I especially liked having linens and basic necessities supplied. The house is well located for long walks to the Hyannis beaches, downtown Hyannis and through the West Yarmouth neighborhood. It's also within walking distance of the island ferries and is a nice central location for exploring the rest of Cape Cod by car. The resident beach pass provided made exploring all of the Barnstable beaches trouble free.' says a guest from Maryland.
'Bayview Getaway was the best cottage I have ever rented. It came with everything you could possibly need and was a terrific location for hoping on the Ferrys for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket and a short drive to all the cute towns to shop. Minutes from Hyannis.'- say our guests who chose Bayview Getaway for a girls week away.
'Thank you so much for the use of your house in Cape Cod. It was perfect. Enough space for everyone not to get on each other's nerves, a great deck where we took our meals daily, AMERICAN TV (if you don't live outside of America you don't know how exciting this can be), deck chairs that sit in the sand at sea shelled beaches, resident pass for Barnstable Beaches, quiet evening walks to the water down the street, watching the ferries to and fro from the Islands, bunny rabbits that welcome you when you arrive, A/C, an incredibly well stacked kitchen with so many things that I now want to get, and just a wonderful place filled with beautiful things that we were able to call home for a week. It was the perfect family vacation.' said our Canadian guests.
