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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Plenty of space. Had everything we needed. Wonderful beaches. Loved the outdoor shower.
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.
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!
