WATERFRONT HOME WITH BEAUTIFUL OCEAN AND RIVER VIEWS FROM EVERY ROOM!

Centerville House Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful Oceanviews - Relax & unwind in our home, 4 Bed, 7 Bath (Sleeps 8-12)

We built a beautiful waterfront home on the Centerville River across from Craigville Beach. Every bedroom has hardwood floors, a nice soft bed and a private tile bath with granite vanity, access to a balcony and beautiful ocean and river views, perfect for a family get away or a small corporate retreat. The top floor library and great room has a wide screen TV, gas fireplace and a wet bar with built-in bookshelves, library and more beach books and novels than you could read in a lifetime.

You can walk to Craigville Beach for a swim in the Nantucket Sound or stroll to the '4 Seas' and sample the world's best ice cream! You can fish in the Centerville River, gather wildflowers in the back yard or lounge in the sun on one of the private decks. There are lots of cozy places to curl up with a book if that is your goal. Or spend your day watching the ducks, geese and swans on the Centerville River from the window seat. After all, it's your vacation! Just relax and enjoy our Cape Cod home!

Other Amenities: Spectacular views from every room, quiet and secure yet close to the beach and 4 seas ice cream! Minutes to great shopping in Hyannis, Osterville or Mashpee Commons.

Even though our lives have taken us off Cape we get back as often as we can. I love working on the house. I designed the house from the foundation up and I built most everything you see myself or with the help of some very talented local friends and craftsmen. The bookshelves, decks and built-ins are all by hand.

Relaxing to me is adding something hand made to the house while my family reads and relaxes or plays on the deck.

David Drake purchased this house in 2008

I grew up here on Cape Cod and building this home was a twelve year project. But we are willing to bet you'll agree, it was well worth the effort!

The waters of Nantucket Sound and Craigville Beach have always had magical healing powers for me and my family. The smell of the salt air and hearing the sound of the waves at the beach as you drop off to sleep... Well it doesn't get much better than that!

Peace and quiet but close to everything!

Fabulous place to stay!

What a fabulous place to stay! We planned our reunion of our family when our son returned home from his second tour in Afghanistan. We had family come in from Florida, Kentucky and Massachusetts. The panoramic views of the Centerville River and Craigville Beach were incredible! There is a beautiful view from every window in the house! The close access to night life and restaurants in Hyannis was perfect for the twenty year old crowd, while the beach access and walking distance to Four Seas Ice Cream and the 1856 Old Country Store for the young ones gave something to do for everyone! Having direct access to the river for kayaking or fishing was really convenient. You could get lost inside this house with all the well designed staircases and spare rooms of this beautifully kept home. This was the perfect size home for all 10 of us. The music you can play with speakers throughout the house (including out on the huge deck that wraps around most of the house), made it ideal for beanbag toss on the deck. Our son had been thinking of this visit for months while serving our country in Afghanistan and his welcome home reunion was a perfect Cape Cod Getaway exceeding his expectations! We have told others about this place and would definitely come back again! Thank you Dave and Jackie for a wonderful memory!
Owner's Response: Hey Guys
We are glad to have you and thank you for your service!
God Bless

Beautiful Home Away From Home

My family and I rented this house in early June and although we had less than ideal weather (actually a week of mostly rain and chills) we had a great time. From the moment we started speaking to David the owner, we knew we were in for a treat. This house was built with love and large families in mind. It spite of our weather we enjoyed our time taking walks, cooking great meals and relaxing in this beautiful home. It's is in a great location and just a short stroll to the beach. Can't wait to rent again! May be next time we will enjoy some sun on that great deck!!
Owner's Response: Thanks Barbara!
We are glad you enjoyed yourself even if the sunshine was scarce.... I love how relaxing the house is in a spring rain but come back and you are sure to have sun every day I guarantee it! (Well almost). Seriously, you left our home so clean you are welcome back any time you want!
Have a great year - Hope to see you soon.
David

Perfect Beach House For Extended Family

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Aug 27, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
The Centerville house is the only vacation rental that exceeded our expectations (in a positive way). It is a beautiful house in great condition, furnished comfortably for families, and had plenty of room for three generations of children and grandchildren. It is about a block to a great beach and sits up and back from the beach road. My favorite spot was in the back on the wrap around deck, which overlooks a pristinely beautiful tidal estuary. Everyone in the family loved the house and we hope to return.

I have a family of 10 including 3 children that recently stayed at this beautiful house. There is more than enough room for all of us to stay without feeling cramped. The living room/porch area is a great area to hang out for evening activities and dinner. There are also so many bathrooms, no one is ever in need to find an empty one. It is nice and clean. All basic neccessities are provided, which is nice when you are getting in from a long flight or drive. The views are breathtaking! It is a short walk to Craigville Beach, so we didn't have to pay for parking. We enjoyed several local restaurants in the area, which are a short drive from the house. We also took a ferry to Martha's Vineyard, drove up to see Plymouth Rock and Provincetown, and took a train ride. The location of the house is perfect for beaching it up or traveling! David was very helpful and made sure we didn't have any issues before the stay and during the stay. We definitely plan on staying again next summer and recommend this house for your Cape Cod vacation!
Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words Brenda. You and your family were a joy to have in or home and we are glad you enjoyed yourselves... But there's so much more to do on Cape Cod! You sure are welcome to return anytime and be sure to tell your friends the Cape is just magnificent in the Fall - Clear crisp sea air and sparkling ocean views! We appreciate you staying with us and hope we see you again real soon!
All the Best,
David

Flip a switch at the wet bar and snuggle up on a couch in front of the fireplace with a good book or watch the wildlife on the Centerville river from the hand crafted window seat! There is nothing more romantic than a real wood fire on a cool crisp night. We have a wood fireplace in the living room and one in the master bedroom.
