NEWLY RENOVATED, SPACIOUS COTTAGE NEAR CRAIGVILLE BEACH

Centerville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, 1 half bath, outdoor shower

This is a lovely, recently renovated three bedroom, two bath house just one-half mile to Craigville Beach and less than a block to Centerville town (just a quick stroll to Four Seas Ice Cream!) The house has all hard wood floors, gets lots of light, and is spacious and clean. Three bedrooms have a queen, a full and a twin, and three more twins. Linens are available if needed.

The house has a 48 inch flat screen TV in the living room and air conditioning units in the living room and all three bedrooms. There is a cook's kitchen with a high end gas stove. There is a large backyard with a patio and gas grill. There is also an outdoor shower.

This is a very family friendly house. In the basement, I have left many items that are useful to families with children. Please note: there is a carriage house in the back of the property that is not included in the rental.

For young children: We have equip the house with many things that will be helpful to parents of young children. In the basement, we have a Pack N Play, a high chair, seats that attach to the table, bouncy seat, Graco stroller, Play yard, infant tub and lots of toys. We ask that you make sure everything is clean and put back in its place.

For Pets: We have a mid size crate and several dog beds available in the basement. There is also a gate.

I am a writer and a single parent of two children, ages 4 and 15. We live in New York and come up to the Cape several times a year.

Maria Eftimiades purchased this cottage in 2007

I love Centerville. It is its own quiet town with a charming General store, a fabulous library with a wonderful children's section, the best ice cream shop on the Cape (Four Seas), a fantastic playground, a new mini mart, all within a few minute's walk from the house. Meanwhile, you are just a few miles to Hyannis, which has everything--movie theaters, shopping mall, ferries to the Vineyard and Nantucket. I also love our proximity to Osterville--there are great restaurants and shops there as well. And of course, it's just a half mile to Craigville Beach, which is a fabulous beach, and just perfect for families.

CHARMING MID-CAPE LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
For our first trip to the Cape (2 parents, 3 kids ages 14-20), we were looking for a charming home in a central location; and we found it here. Centerville proved to be a good home base for a lot of activity -- from this location as our base, we enjoyed charter fishing out of Barnstable Harbor (15 minutes away), the ferry to Nantucket from Hyannis Harbor (10 minutes away), a night baseball game in the Cape Cod League (10 minutes away), dinner in Hyannis (10 minutes away) and West Yarmouth (20 minutes away), Four Seas ice cream just up the street at night, and 2 afternoons on Craigville Beach (1/2 mile away -- we walked the easy walk). We also found Centerville to be an easy commute to/from Provincetown (whale watching with Dolphin Fleet -- we got lucky and saw 35-40 whales at one site!) and biking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail (which begins in South Dennis about 30 minutes away). My daughter and I even found the drive to Providence, RI easy enough to take Amtrak into NYC for a show one night, returning the next day.

As for the house, the description and the photos do the house justice. This is a clean and comfortable home. The owners have a sense of space -- they have not overstuffed the living floor (first floor) with furniture; thus, there is a good "flow" in the first floor living area. The upstairs has 3 bedrooms, which were adequately sized for our family. We never had a backup awaiting the single indoor shower because a few members of the family actually preferred the chance to use the outdoor shower (not pictured on current photos). The outdoor shower is well-fenced, so privacy did not seem compromised. The landscaping for the home seems consistent with the surrounding area. We enjoyed the blooming hibiscus next to the driveway.

The home is located right next door to Long Dell Inn, a well-maintained and charming B&B; and it is just a very few steps from "downtown" Centerville (which is tiny).

We thoroughly enjoyed our first trip to the Cape; and we think this home in Centerville can provide a good base for other visitors to enjoy many activities on the Cape.

AWESOME LOCATION AND EASY ACCESS TO ALL PARTS OF CAPE COD

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in early August 2013. The location is very convenient to all major attractions being 'center' of cape cod. We had six people comfortably stay at this home. It is filled with all the things you need to make you feel you are at your own summer home. It is clean, just large enough and spacious. Perfect if you are a runner - about a mile away to the Craigsville Beach. The owner is very responsive, flexible, and caring.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. Just want to clarify that the house is actually half a mile to Craigville beach (clocked it on my car!)

GREAT GET-AWAY

  • 5 of 5
This Cape Cod gem is exactly as described! Craigville beach is a short and easy walk - 4 seas ice cream (the best on the Cape) is just down the street. The home itself is very clean and well outfitted for a couple or a small family. The new deck and outdoor shower are fantastic! The owner is accommodating and reachable if there are any questions or problems. I was lucky enough to have great weather, but if its rainy there is still plenty to do. grocery stores, downtown Hyannis, and the Melody tent are just a short drive away. I hope to return to this home in the future! Thank you for a great stay!

ENJOYED OUR STAY AND LOOK FORWARD TO A RETURN VISIT.

  • 5 of 5
Typical older Cape Cod home. Spacious down stairs. Living room and dining area open and airy and bright. The kitchen, with its center island, was a great place to gather at the end of the day to enjoy cocktails and plan dinner. Minutes from the beach, park with in walking distance and an old time candy store made for a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon for the kids (and the big kids too). Owner had plenty of recommendations for kid friendly activities - loved the pirate ship!
