Great Cape-style cottage and vibrant beach community for a fun family vacation! The cottage has lovely flower-filled window boxes and whiskey barrels, and is situated on a pleasant street lined with well-maintained summer homes.
The cottage is clean, organized and nicely decorated. A new light-color berber-style carpet brightens the living room. Many windows encourage breezy cross-ventilation. First-floor features two bedrooms (queen and single beds, dressers and closets), living room (with new flat screen TV/cable/DVD), full bath, eat-in kitchen and eat-in screened porch. One of the first-floor bedroom has a large desk which has alot of storage and will accomodate a printer, copier, etc. for an at-home office. Wireless internet service is provided.

The large back yard has a picnic table/benches and gas grill just outside the eat-in screened porch. The outdoor shower (a second shower) is a wonderful summer alternative and used for most showering including after-beach rinses. Bring your own bikes or rent nearby. Trash and recyclables are picked up weekly. Although the cottage is not heated, non-peak times are typically very comfortable.
The beach is about 2-3 blocks from the house and features white sand, plentiful shells, warm south-side waters, a fishing jetty, and diving raft. “Wild Harbor”, the “Tea Room” (i.e., simple arcade, grille and snacks), tennis courts and outdoor movies (G/PG-13 only) are all located within a block of the beach.

It is easy to get on and off along the way - a fabulous place to walk, run and bike! Bike rentals are available in North Falmouth.
