SMELL THE SALT AIR! SERENE 5 BR/3 BA MID-CAPE, CENTRAL, SUN CHECK IN=NO TRAFFIC!

Osterville House Rental Photos and Description

Cheerful Home, 4+ Bedrooms, 3 Bath Walk to Town & beach on Nantucket Sound!

Relax in peace and quiet, listen to the birds and enjoy the fragrant salt air of Nantucket Sound!

Avoind the hassles of Bridge traffic and have a whole weekend to enjoy. Arrive and depart on Sundays when the Bridges are slow!

Charming Colonial with wonderful entertaining and relaxing space in a private setting, yet close to Beaches, Ferries, Bike Paths, Fishing, great Seafood dining, local cultural events and sports, as well as Historic and National Seashore attractions.

Mid Cape location is great for day tripping in many directions. Terrific area for boating, kayaking and canoeing because there are many harbors, and inlets to explore such as East and West Bay, Oyster Harbors, Hyannis Harbor and Waquoit Bay.

One hour to Fenway Park, and 90 minutes to Logan Int'l Airport. 'Cape Air' flies from Logan to Hyannis and the Islands. Plymouth and Brockton Bus lines travel from Logan/Boston to Sagamore Bridge and Hyannis.

We remodeled in 2005, and this home has open spaces on the first floor with hardwood floors and area rugs. The updated designer kitchen is large with a Green Pearl Granite Island, and four counter stools. Dining area seats 6-8, and the children's table seats 4. We also have a children's desk. The family room has Comcast with Wi-Fi, and a new large Flat Screen TV. The sunny living room will also have a flat screen TV, so as to offer a variety of programming. Music Room with a Chickering Baby Grand Piano, a relaxing reading area with a daybed, an AM/FM radio/ CD player, and a beverage refrigerator. A massage table is available, however, most Home Therapists bring their own. Totally ready for a personal 'Home Spa' creation!

The kitchen is stocked well: we supply a coffee maker, a blender, a toaster, pots and pans, dishes, silverware and glasses, as well as serving dishes. For our outdoor spaces, we also have plastic items and trays available with old silverware. Our deck is large and the dining table seats 8-10. We also have 6 lightweight Adirondack chairs that can be moved to the front for sun exposure. On our patio, we have a new 'Blue Rhino' gas grill. We will provide two full propane tanks, and you must leave them full. Visit Stop and Shop or Aubuchon Hardware on Route 28, a ten minute drive, to refill. Our outdoor shower helps keep beach sand outside to protect our hardwood floors. The first floor bath has an indoor shower in a tiled area with laundry.

Bonus Bed: If any guest cannot climb the stairs to all the bedrooms, one can sleep on the twin daybed and use the first floor bath. Room Darkening drapes will be provided for this adaptation to add a bedroom effect.

The second floor is fully carpeted, and has five rooms. Four are set up as bedrooms. The fifth is set up as an office/laundry with an extra twin bed, and possibly a crib if needed. Wi-Fi works throughout the house, and there will be a fax machine.

Main master bedroom has a King Bed. A second bedroom has a Queen Bed with an Antique Four Poster Bed adapted from Full to Queen. A third bedroom has a Queen with a Wicker headboard. A fourth has a white Mission style bunk bed twin over full futon which is a daybed for reading, and can be a full size bed if neeed. A second twin bed will be in that room.

We will provide 8 beach chairs, and a 'Beach Buggy' to carry them when you walk to the beach We will add a higher folding chair for those Adults who cannot sit in a low sand chair. We will provide a $275 Beach Pass for all Barnstable beaches. We will provide the housecleaner, but a cleaning fee will be paid by the renters. We will provide large trash and recycle containers. We hope to provide an an allergy free home and we do not allow pets or smoking.

Linens and Towel!

We WILL provide linens and towels adequate for your stay. A full set will be delivered on Sunday. When you are departing, you must place all the linens in the container to be picked up.

Cape Cod is a precious environment, and we need to conserve water and septic systems. We thank you for your understanding!

Clean pillows and bed covering will be provided.

Our lansdcaping has not been redone and keeping it simple and tidy is our goal for now. We have two outdoor play structures, and one has a small slide. We also have a children's desk and chair inside.

We support recycling and our Barnstable facility is open to renters for a daily fee of $15 for trash. Recycling is free. Out trash will be picked up twice per week on Tuesdays and Fridays, and recycle will be every other week on Tuesdays.

We will leave a notebook full of information for our renters, including what you can recycle. We will list what we provide and what we expect are our renters' responsibilites.

We provide a Beach Pass and addresses, which allows access and parking to all beaches in Barnstable. You must lock this in your car, because it will cost $375 for us to repalce it!

Experienced property manager from Chestnut Hill, MA has renovated this colonial near Osterville Village, one of the most charming villages on Cape Cod. A love of Antiques, plus experience with home renovations, resulted in a wonderful upscale property for rent. We try to accommodate all our tenants needs in a clean home.

Annie K purchased this house in 2004

Personal relaxation and environmental pleasure are key components to a happy healthy vacation! Osterville and Chatham are the most scenic and prestigious towns on Cape Cod. Osterville Village has the benefit of being closer to the bridges, at Exit 5, in the Mid Cape area, closer to all ferries, airports, buses, and tourist attractions. Mid Cape is also north of usual fog patterns, which periodically engulf Chatham. If you have great weather, you can explore Cape Cod every day. If it rains, you can be comfortable at home with a lovely fireplace, music and TV.

We are central yet private. Our property is on a dead end street, surrounded by trees, and the birds flourish. We are near enough to Nantucket Sound without the wind and dampness of oceanfront. We can walk to everything, and never need to get in a car. It is truly a place to relax and enjoy!
