MAGICAL BEACH HOUSE ON THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

Truro House Rental Photos and Description

1850s Boat House, Completely Renovated, Wonderful Ocean Views, Sleeps 6

The Ballston Beach House is located on the Atlantic Ocean in Truro. Enjoy extraordinary Ocean views and extremely easy access to the beach. Originally constructed in the 1850's as a boat house for the U.S. Life Saving Station, the House is completely updated, yet retains its historical charm. Pet friendly.

The new and open design features a fireplaced Living Room, with a huge expanse of windows that provide panoramic Ocean views; an enormous Dining Room, with antique glass doors that open to a Screened-In Porch; a modern Kitchen, with granite countertops; and a Marble Shower and separate Jacuzzi Tub. Conveniently sleeps six, with a large Master Bedroom, overlooking the epic Atlantic Ocean; an oversized Second Bedroom; and a queen sized sleep sofa in the living room. With Air Conditioning and Heating, the Beach House can be enjoyed all year long.

For Ocean Lovers: While Truro offers many homes to rent on the Cape Cod Bay, there are very few private homes on the Atlantic Ocean, as most all of the Oceanfront property is owned by the US as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. If you are looking for a vacation on the Atlantic Ocean, with the sounds of the crashing waves and the experience of salt water and surf, then spend some time at our quintessential Cape Cod Beach House, which has been updated to include all of today's modern conveniences.

PHOTOS NOT ACCURATE

  • 2 of 5
I booked this last year, late in the season, the weather was incredible!!!! I very excited to be able to stay right on the ocean. The house was clean and tidy, the Charcoal grill, boogie boards , chairs, beach essentials were stowed away in a very grungy basement , cobwebs, just a mess. Gas grill, had no proane tank! NO deck as picture shows, it is gone , just a few braces and supports where it would have been, upstairs deck on master bedroom has been barricaded off. we had no water in the only shower!!!! called owner and property manager, took them 3 days to arrive and fix, 3 days!!!!There was an outside shower , i attempted to use , but there was a electrical curretn like pulses that when you got near it would, give you kind of a little jolt. House is old, but comfortable and unique, although no direct access to beach, you must walk down the driveway to the public beach entrance, and use that to get to beach, alittle inconvienent , but understandable due to beach erosion. I would not recommend this for the money. OCEANFRONT yes,great time had yes, but not worth $.

ONE OF MY MOST FAVORITE PLACES EVER

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have visited this house several times--the first time for two blissful weeks and afterwards for shorter durations. Sometimes with friends; mostly, just the two of us.I cannot tell you in words how beautiful this place is, how peaceful, how restorative, how utterly special. You wake with the light streaming through the windows and all you hear are the waves. You have the whole world in front of you--and it's yours alone. Ballston Beach is a gorgeous place to be and often--at least in the off season--you may well be the only one on the beach. We come here with our small dog, a Jack Russell terrier, who is a portrait of,joy as she races through the sand and into the water. And we have shared so many walks on this beach, breathing the salty air and in love with the endless sky.
The house is a perfect house--simple, high ceilings, with both an airy and wonderfully comfortable feeling. When it's hot, the screened in porch is perfect for breakfast or dinner. The big round table inside can be filled with plates of fresh fish, local fruits and vegetables, and good Portuguese bread from Provincetown.
Oh yes--I read in one review that the water is salty. It is--it comes from local wells and it's truly not great drinking water. But guess what? For a mere few dollars, you can buy double gallon bottled water anywhere--and what a small (ridiculously small) price to pay for one of the loveliest places in the world?
We truly hate leaving every time.

ULTIMATE BEACH HOUSE—TAKE THE OPPORTUNITY & STAY!

Ultimate Beach House—take the opportunity & stay!
  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed a 3 night stay in early April 2013, when my sisters and I took our mom and her sister for a girls get-away to the Cape. Sheer delight upon arrival! To find ourselves in an historic home perched on a sand dune overlooking the Atlantic, we were like little kids running in every direction to take in all of its beauty the moment we got out of the car (and our group ranged in age from mid-forties to early-nineties). Seriously (and literally), it is like finding treasure in the sand.

The owners are super helpful and will answer all of your questions. Rick was very clear about the water situation, (and, when you see for yourself just how close you are to the Atlantic, you will completely understand why the tap water is salty). Simply take plenty of water for your stay. Tall ceilings, views in every direction, clean and welcoming, this comfortable house feels like a piece of old Cape Cod.

You will not regret booking your stay here. My mother has always dreamed of being in a house by the sea — and for those few days this magical place made it happen. We are so grateful for the experience. This stunning beach house has an enchanting hold on us now — we’ll be back!

BEWARE. NO FRESH WATER!!!!!

  • 1 of 5
This house is beautiful and the view in breathtaking...BUT...
we arrived at this beautiful house on New Years eve and "discovered" that the house has no fresh running water at all, only salty sandy water...what a MAJOR inconvenience and so annoying because my oldest in allergic to "salt water " and could not even take a shower or a bath... regardless we decided to stay and make the most of it ( 2 small kids...9 hour drive...you get the idea) and buy large amount of fresh water from the store to drink and wash with...
The owner should mention this upfront. It is dishonest not to divulge this MAJOR piece of information.
