Chatham House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
This exclusive Shore Rd location and home will be part of great family memories for many years to come. Everyone who vacations at this property is delighted to have discovered a home that is built right on the beach and ocean, yet is only a few minutes walk to the heart of Main St.
'The Sand Box' is sited directly on its own private beach. It sits ahead of all the other estate homes, and offers completely unobstructed views of Pleasant Bay and the open ocean beyond.
This property is approximately a 5-7 minute walk to the dozens of shops, restaurants, and art galleries that line Main St.; and the world famous Chatham Bars Inn and Spa is less than 200 yards to our north, by beach or road.
Our private beach is wide and deep, with soft sand, and has no rocks or seaweed. The clean, gentle water is protected by a barrier island, and is wonderful for small children and adults alike. Locals and guests agree that we have the best spot in Chatham for a relaxing, peaceful, and fun family vacation.
'The Sand Box' originally dates from 1938 but was completely reconstructed from the foundation up in 2000. Our home now features central air conditioning, a high end chef's kitchen (including proper cook and dinnerware), three new European tile baths, gas fireplace, hardwood floors, Samsung 'smart' HD TVs throughout home, Premium HD DirectTV, inside and out speaker system with Blue Tooth remote, latest Xbox 1 interactive game station, DSL wifi, halogen lighting, outside chairs, lounges, dining table, and umbrella, stainless steel gas barbeque, beach view fire pit, plentiful beach chairs, and four mountain bikes of different sizes.
CONDITION OF HOME: All furniture, furnishings, carpets, pillows, mattresses, linens, towels, etc are maintained in new condition at all times, and our home is professionally cleaned between guests.
CLEANLINESS: Our guests expect no less than the condition and cleanliness of their own home, or a five star hotel, and that's what we try our best to provide.
'The Sand Box' is not a large home (under 2000 sq feet) and we limit occupancy to one family plus nanny, grandparents, nephews, etc.
The 2015 rental season starts on June 27 and runs thru Labor Day week. Weekly rentals only at $12,500.00 per week includes tax and cleaning charge, and are from Saturday to Saturday. Off season rentals are not available.
The home itself consists of three bedrooms and three full baths. All rooms have full on ocean views. The MBR has a full en suite bath with shower and king bed, the guest bedroom has a full bath off the hallway and a queen bed, and the upstairs kids bedroom has an en suite full bath and three single beds. The stairs to the upstairs kids bedroom are steep and NOT suitable for toddlers without supervision!
Our property manager meets and greets all guests and is a long time Chatham resident who can offer advice about all things Chatham. She is available for advice, help, repairs, recommendations, and any issues large or small, on a 24/7 basis. A final note: one neighbor family has access to our beach through a small path on the other side of the bike shed you see in the photos.
Please come and enjoy! It would be our privilege to welcome you during July, August and thru Labor Day week, but we are in residence during the shoulder seasons, and The SandBox is closed during the winter months.

We live in Vancouver, Boca Raton, and Chatham depending on season. We love food, travel, theatre, art, books, movies, reading, and, surprisingly enough after all these years, each other.
Bought this property in 2000 based purely on location without ever seeing inside. Expected a major renovation but everything was already perfect!
We love this property and we do everything we can to ensure its continuing beauty.
One of the very few homes located within very short walking distance to Main St. yet sited directly on its own private beach
