Why Ginny chose Onset

My husband and I had bought a summer cottage on Onset Island as newlyweds and fell in love with quaintness of Onset. Being on the island was magical but limited with the year round access.

Location, Views, Comfort!

  • 5 of 5

On the water without having to navigate rotaries, bridges & congested cape highways. Walking distance to town & local restaurants. Five minute drive to Buzzards Bay & more services. Views in all directions from inside & out. Comfortable beds & furniture. Attentive owner & management company. Quiet & serene. We're heading back for our 4th year in a row!

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd year at this house. Great for small children at the water.Just about

anything you need is a walk or short drive away. House has most everything you would need on vacation. Internet is a plus.

Our Onset get-away!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this beautiful Beach Home was just perfect for us, and also a wonderful fun & relaxing time as well for our daughter and sweet granddaughter Dayvee. It created many lasting memories for all of us and you sure can't get any closer to nice soft sand anywhere! :)

Perfect for young families

  • 5 of 5

I hadn't been to the Cape in quite a number of years. When looking for a spot to vacation with my daughter, son-in-law, granddaughter age 2 1/2 and grandson age 8 months, I was looking for something on or close to the water. This home had everything we were looking for. The home itself is so well equipped that we didn't look for anything that wasn't there. It made dining at home with 2 little ones a pleasure. Weather was great; the ocean was warm and gradually got deep. Perfect for the 2 1/2 year old to practice her "swimming" & find/release ocean critters. A great introduction for her. Great area to get some exercise as well as town is a mere 10-15 minute walk away. Would recommend this home to anyone looking for a restful, quiet time "on the Cape" without having to cross the bridges

Amazingly relaxing and beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed on this property and found it so accessible to the beach and enjoying the sun (you could relax on the outside deck, screened porch, lower level patio or on the beach!). The property was spotless and beautiful, especially the landscaping work. The town was exactly what I wanted from a Cape stay, yet within a quick drive you had access to Sandwich, Falmouth, Hyannis --just perfect location. Avoiding bridge traffic is yet another big bonus with this property.

Thanks Ginny for allowing my husband and me to 'regenerate' and get back to the IT world with such fond memories of a perfect Cape Code stay!
