Osterville House Rental Photos and Description

4BR/2BA - Sleeps 9-11

Wonderful Osterville location with a private heated pool. This 4 bedroom, 2 full bath home is in pristine condition and has a wonderful open floor plan. It has central a/c, a new, stylishly appointed kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, gleaming new hardwood floors, skylights, a fireplace and multiple, separate living spaces perfect for families with children. The large, private backyard has a heated, in-ground, fenced-in swimming pool, brick patio with gas grill, and outdoor shower. It is about a half mile to beautiful Dowses Beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Osterville.

The first floor has two separate living spaces, including a large combination family room/dining room with new upholstered furniture, a large flat-screen HDTV, and large dining table that comfortably seats 6-8. The second living space is open to the new kitchen, and includes a fireplace, new upholstered furniture and seating for 10 at an over-sized breakfast bar and a custom built banquet. Also on the first floor are 2 bedrooms and a newly renovated full bath, including one with a king bed and another with a queen bed.

On the second floor are 2 additional bedrooms, a newly renovated full bath and another large family room, which includes a new sectional with a queen size pull-out sleeper. The bedrooms include one with three twin size beds (two twins and a roll away trundle) and another with a queen size bed.

The home offers 2 large TVs, a Bose Sound Dock, WiFi, Cable with DVR service, 2 DVD players, and local phone service.

The house is very toddler-friendly, offering one full-size crib with crib sheets, one pack-n-play, one tension operated baby gate, one hand-held video monitor, various children's books and movies, and a booster seat.

Fresh linens are provided.

Beautiful home in upscale area

  • 5 of 5

The house is charming, beautifully decorated, clean, and very well cared for. We stayed in mid-April - the area is upscale and was just waking up from the tough winter. We felt safe and secure in the house. We didn't use the pool, as it was closed, but it looked lovely. The house and backyard is great for children, with a secure fence around the pool, and my kids enjoyed the many toys that were available. The house came with bed linens and towels which was a treat, as we've had to bring our own to other cape houses we've rented. The house seems larger than the 1800 square feet listed and has a TV room/dining room full of light (french doors on both sides and a skylight) off the main kitchen/living room (which is also very nice). The kitchen was well-equipped, and the beds were very comfortable. The second floor has a TV with a large sectional/queen pull-out bed, desk, games, and books (there are lots of children's books in the twin room). There were tons of extra blankets, pillows, and sheet sets in the many closets. Julie was exceptional to deal with - very informative, accommodating, and understanding.

We also enjoyed a delicious lunch at Crisp (my second time and one of my favorite Osterville restaurants). Worth a try for lunch, as they have $10 lunch specials. Stop and Shop is about 10-15 minutes away, and Fancy's (the local grocery store just a 5 minute drive from the house) has great made-to-order sandwiches.

Wish we could have stayed all summer!

  • 5 of 5

This house is such a gem! We stayed at the end of the summer with 8 adults and our 2 young children. The pool was beautiful and warm and the pool house was well stocked with towels, floats, and even life vests and swimmies for the kids. There were more than enough chairs surrounding the pool and on the patio in the beautifully landscaped backyard. For the kids, the house had toys, books, a nice crib, a booster seat, little bikes in the garage, and more. Because there is a door that closes at the bottom of the stairway, people can comfortably sleep on the pull out couch in the upstairs tv room area. The neighborhood was gorgeous, a short walk to a little town, and a short bike ride or drive to the beach. We definitely hope to visit this house again in the future. Thank you to the wonderful owners for such an enjoyable week!

great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year at this house. The location is perfect to enjoy all of the cape and outer islands as well as provide access to Boston. Plenty to do for all members of the family, and great restaurants for an adult night out.

Great pool

local beaches are easily accessible, and National Seashore is an easy drive

Very helpful, friendly owners. Towels and linens are provided and the kitchen is very complete so you don't have to overpack to have a great vacation

Wianno beach house

  • 5 of 5

We loved our holiday at Julie's Wianno Circle beach house. The house and property are beautiful, clean, and extremely comfortable. We had lots of space for two families, incl 5 children. The house is fully loaded with supplies including children's toys, dishware, pool floaties, crib and baby monitor. There's tons of bedding, towels, and kitchen supplies. The air hockey and pool table in the garage were great. Dowes beach is beautiful with warm and calm water. The local library is fantastic. One week was definitely too short. We can't wait to go back!

We loved it.

  • 5 of 5

We simply loved the house. It is very clean, beautifully decorated, located on quiet street. We traveled with little children so we like the idea of fenced pool area, kids bikes in the garage, extra books and toys. My husband enjoyed pool table and hokey table that was located in the garage. We were glad that we paid extra for heated pool since we had small children. I would definitely recommend it. Looking forward to rent this house again.

I forgot to mention that the owner of the property is very professional and helpful. Everything was just perfect.
