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.

About David Drake

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

Why David Drake chose Centerville

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!

What makes this house unique

Peace and quiet but close to everything!

Perfect Spot to Stay on the Cape

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous Cape Cod vacation spot.... or for us, a family celebration of our 50th wedding anniversary!! The house is beautiful and well appointed.... lots of room for everyone. Major features of the house include: a wrap around deck that affords sun/shade and views aplenty; situated on a forested knoll between the river and the ocean; only a block or so walk to the beach; seven (yes, 7) bathrooms; and the kitchen, dining, great room is the perfect gathering place for family. The Four Seas Ice Cream (homemade) and the Centerville Pie Company (better than homemade) should not be missed.... no matter what! For a little history of the area, check out the Centerville Historical Museum on Main Street. David is very helpful and responsive... he makes you feel at home at his home. We'll be back!!!!

Nature Preserve atmosphere and views

  • 5 of 5
Pictures of this property do not do it justice as it sits on a winding river with beautiful trees, marshes, and bird sanctuary. The large wrap around deck on three sides gives you full ap-
preciation for morning sunrises and evening sunsets with each level (3) providing more and
higher visibility. The owner is a native Cape man, full of stories and love of the area.
We liked so many things with its proximity to Hyannis restaurants and boat rentals, picnics on Craigville Beach right across the street. We loved the fish and produce markets, the large kitchen and living areas are conducive for lively dinners.
We even jumped off the bridge at high tide! Great for kayaking standing or sitting!

Best Place on the Cape

  • 5 of 5
We love the Centerville area and this home is located in the best area of Centerville.
Walk to the beach!! The house is better than described. Well maintained and beautiful in every way. Bringing a large family is not a problem here. There is plenty of room for everyone. Our Brother came over for diner with his 5 kids and there was plenty of room to entertain. Our favorite room is the 3 season room with it's blue ceiling. Morning coffee on the deck before the active day was a joy. Can't say enough about this place. David offers a great place for our enjoyment. Thank you David

A mix between paradise and serenity by the sea

  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 usually rents a time share in Falmouth each year. We love to kayak, bike, visit the beach, and explore. This year we decided to try something new and invite the whole family. Since mom was diagnosed with cancer last year, we realized how important it was to all be together in one house. Surrounded by her husband, three children and spouses, and 6 grandchildren, my mom was able to relax for the first time. The house is immaculate, but even more important is the serenity it offered. We were able to kayak from the yard, bike to town, walk to the beach, and take car trips to nearby towns. Despite my mother's illness and the stress that we encounter in our daily lives, we were all able to let go. I encourage you to rent this home if you are looking for a place where you can embrace the beauty of nature, enjoy the peacefulness the home offers, and reconnect with your family.

Fabulous place to stay!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Beautiful Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
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!!

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.
