Welcome to Sparrow Song - our new house on Cape Cod that we hope you enjoy as much as we do. We believe that this is the perfect Cape Cod beach house. Just a 3 minute walk leads you to one of the best bay beaches on the Cape where you have your choice of a seemingly private beach that gets larger or smaller with the tide, or the public area which always has a beach regardless of the tide. There are several large ponds in the area, and the ocean beaches are a short convenient drive away. The Cape Cod bike trail is a short bike ride from the house.
The house is a ranch style, so all rooms are on one floor, but spacious and spread out. There is a great room den, eating area, living room, 3 large bedrooms, kitchen, 2 full bathrooms, and an unfinished basement with a ping pong table, foosball table and dart board. There are a total of 3 cable TV's thoughout the house.
There is a large deck with a sitting and eating area, and a screened porch with a sitting and eating area. The house has an enclosed outdoor shower, BBQ-grill, washer & dryer, microwave, coffeemaker, cable TV, VCR and DVD players, high speed internet, no pets and no smoking. The backyard is very large and level, and perfect for family outdoor activities.
The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could need from the toaster oven to the lobster pot. There are 4 window air conditioners that cool the entire house, and the kitchen, den and 3 bedrooms have ceiling fans. Two of the bedrooms have queen size beds, and one room has 3 twin beds. There is high speed wireless for your laptop, and a desk for those who don't know how not to work in paradise. Pillows, mattress pads and blankets are provided, but remember to bring your own sheets, pillow cases and towels.
If you want to try other beaches, you can purchase a beach sticker and have access to the following Eastham beaches, all a short drive from the house: First Encounter, Great Pond, Thumpertown, Cooks Brook, Sunken Meadow, Cole Road, Herring Pond, Boat Meadow, Nauset Light, and Coast Guard.
It is such a pleasure renting a house a few minutes walk from the beach. No more wasting time packing the car and making lunches, snacks and drinks for the beach, because when you want something to eat, you just walk back to the house. No more waiting in line at the beach parking lot hoping that someone will leave. No more ruined beach days when someone in your party sleeps late, or wants to leave the beach early. And, at the end of each day, you can stroll down to the beach and see the most spectacular sunset that Cape Cod has to offer.
We believe that this house is perfect. We have vacationed on Cape Cod for many years, and have always said that if we found the perfect house, we would buy it. It is a 3 minute stroll to the Campground Bay Beach, and a short drive to the ocean beaches. It is a short bike ride to the Cape Cod Bike Trail, and convenient to restaurants, shopping, and the towns of Orleans, Wellfleet, Chatham and Provincetown that offer wonderful opportunities for arts and leisure. The house sits on over .6 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with a large flat backyard for family activities. This is not a big fancy house - it is a well-maintained, family orientated and much loved house that is in a perfect location if you like to be within a short walk (1/10 of a mile) to a bay beach.
Our house is not too big and not too small - it is just right. As a ranch style house, it is very accessible, and the Master Bedroom is located in the newer addition away from the other two bedrooms and feels like its own suite. The house is set back far enough from the road that it feels secluded, and the huge level backyard and large deck is perfect for families.
Our family of 4 (including 2 toddlers) and our friends' family (inc 1 toddler) stayed here for a week. There is plenty of privacy to share with another family - the rooms and bathrooms are well spaced out.
The location is perfect. Very simple walk to the beach with our 3-year-old, easy enough to pop the 1-yr-old into a wagon to get there. The backyard is huge - great for little ones to run and play. And the porch and deck are awesome. The house has everything you need (laundry in the basement's a bonus). The house was in great shape (v clean) when we arrived.
There's a small store a few houses down that has everything you need, from bread and milk to beer and wine to penny candy.
Loved this house and location!
This beautiful property provided everything that we needed for a great Cape Cod vacation. The home is decorated very comfortably, is bright and airy thanks to skylights, and has nice amenities with a large screened-in porch and deck overlooking a large, beautifully maintained back yard. The basement game room with a ping-pong table, foosball table, and dart board are a nice extra, especially for any rainy days. With a short walk to Camp Ground Beach and quiet surroundings, it makes for a perfect family vacation spot.
This home was perfect for us. We are 2 families that rent homes together, and the space was excellent for that. 2 living rooms, 2 bathrooms, outdoor shower, wonderful screened in porch and a large private back yard....we had plenty of room to spread out and enjoy.
We found the home to be well stocked, clean and well cared for.....and the best part is that it's walking distance to a wonderful beach! I would highly recommend this home!
If you want to leave the world behind, this is the place for you. The location is near a stunning, west facing beach that is easy to swim in. There is a large backyard to relax in (great screened-in porch). This was the best place to spend a long weekend with friends. The house has a split plan, so the bedrooms are on opposite ends from one another and there are five doors that lead outside, so it is easy to float around and feel like you have the place to yourself ... even if every bed has someone sleeping in it.
My personal favorite was the long walks on sandy paths that meander through the neighborhood... I love leaving blacktop behind! We had such a great time at the house, and we hope to go back often.
This is the perfect vacation rental! We have been renting on Cape Cod for many years and this is by far the best home we have rented. It is a large, spacious, comfortable home perfect for families or for adult friends. The absolutely best feature of the house is the large screened in porch. It is wonderful to sit outside for morning coffee, anytime mid-day, and especially in the evenings.
This home is just a few step from the beaches. No driving or parking. A HUGE yard to enjoy was also a big plus.
Being so close to the National Seashore was wonderful.
Great dining room with plenty of room for friends and family. We had so many good meals and fun there.
Two bathrooms and air conditioning that worked so well made our stay so comfortable during a warm July week.
We loved everything about this place and will rent again. When you find that special place - you will return!
We had a great week at this house! Among its wonderful features: Very short walk to a bay beach (Campground - can launch a kayak from the beach) and easy drives to several ocean beaches (Marconi, Nauset Light, Coast Guard), very nice yard for playing, wonderful screened-in porch, good deck with a new gas grill for making dinner or close proximity to takeout (Red Barn Pizza, Arnold's - skip the lines!), close to the bike trail, lots of good board games for the occasional rainy day. The house was clean when we arrived and very well-equipped. The layout of the house is convenient and provides privacy for more than one couple/family sharing the house. The only drawback: kitchen is a bit small - hard for the group to "hang out" while preparing dinner.
Something to know: Though the owner communicates directly with you about the initial reservation and personally followed up to see how the week was, the contract and payment is actually handled through a realtor. There is a $100 "non refundable rental fee" in addition to the advertised rental cost. You will have to pick up and drop off the keys at the realty office in Orleans, still adhering to the 3 pm check-in and 10 am check-out times.
