FAMILY FRIENDLY TRADITIONAL SALT BOXW/BEACH PASS

Centerville Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3+ Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms w/ Central Air and Minutes from the Beach

A bright and airy three bedroom cottage, Slimbridge includes a first floor master with queen size bed and first floor bath with shower. The upstairs master has a pillow top king size bed with direct access to a full bath. The third bedroom, also upstairs, has twin beds. A fully equipped kitchen includes a dishwasher, glass top stove/oven, microwave and plenty of dishes, pots and pans, cutlery and small appliances (toaster, blender, slow-cooker, griddle,etc). Cable TV, High-speed Internet access and local and long distance phone are included. All windows have screens to allow the sea breezes to cool the house, but should the weather turn excessively warm, the house has central air conditioning. The living room has a flat screen TV and DVD player with plenty of comfy seating. The dining room table will easily seat 8 people for meals or a rousing game of cards or board game. There's even a reading nook for the bibliophile in the group! The walkout basement has a family room with a queen size pull out sofa bed and a twin bed with trundle.

When you arrive, your beds will have been made up with fresh linens. Towels and wash cloths, are also provided, so no need to bring them from home. You will also find a Welcome Book on the coffee table with instructions for use of everything from the TV to the washer and dryer. And another book we call the 'Book of Where' with suggestions for restaurants, ferries, places of worship and museums. Feel free to add brochures of places you would recommend while you are there.

Outside is a deck with wicker furniture and a gas grill, which can be accessed by a ramp or steps. A nice yard and surrounding woods give children plenty of space to run and explore. We also have an outdoor shower to rinse off the salt and sand after a day at the beach. Speaking of the beach, we also provide sand toys, beach chairs and a beach parking pass!

Our family has been vacationing on The Cape for years. We love it here and look forward to giving you the opportunity to join in the fun we've had. It's a perfect spot for summer fun, but The Cape is also beautiful in the fall, winter and spring. This home would be a perfect spot for your family vacation or a get-away weekend.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Beautiful place. I suggest going on the whale watch. We saw many whales and had a great day. Also went on wine tasting which was a great time, too. Thanks!! Hope to do it again.

We both retired in 2011. Bill was a purchasing agent and Debbie an elementary teacher. We have 3 wonderful married children and 4 delightful grands. You'll find the house is furnished with visitors of all ages in mind.

Bill and Debbie Tudor purchased this cottage in 2012

After years of vacationing with family on the Cape, our kids convinced us it was time to buy a place of our own. Our Realtor showed us several properties, but when we pulled up to this house, we knew it was 'the one.' Once you see it and spend some time here you'll know what we mean.

Our family loves that Slimbridge Cottage is minutes from the beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound. It's also not far from the Cape Cod Rail Trail, a 25 mile paved bike and walking path. We love taking visitors to Plimouth Plantation and the Mayflower which is about 45 minutes away. There are ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket right here in Hyannis or you can drive to Falmouth or Woods Hole if you want a shorter 'ocean voyage'. Fresh seafood is abundant either from the local fish market or at any of the wonderful restaurants. If live theater is your thing, the Melody Tent is about a 5 minute drive. Are you a baseball fan? The Cape Cod Baseball League is one of the premiere summer leagues spotlighting the best collegiate talent. The Hyannis team plays about a 10 minute drive from our place! Probably one of the most amazing things about this place is the peace and quiet. It has woods on three sides with many beautiful birds and is on a cul de sac where our grandchildren can play and explore.

REALXING FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
From the moment you walk in the door, you feel welcome in this home. True to its description, it was everything we needed for our family vacation. It was clean and comfortable and the location was perfect. If you have children, bring their bikes and helmets - the neighborhood was perfect for riding - very little traffic, and very safe. It was nice to go out exploring Cape Cod during the day, and then coming back to the relaxing comfort of our temporary "home". The Welcome Book was very helpful, and we found the "Book of Where" very useful. I would highly recommend the Hyannis Whale Watch out of Barnstable Harbor - its a short drive to the harbor and on our trip, we saw 5 Humpback Whales! (2 of which were a mother and baby :). The owner is extremely personable and helpful in every step of the rental process. If we plan other vacation to Cape Cod, I would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Bikes and Cape Cod go perfectly together. As you mentioned, our neighborhood is very safe for the little ones to ride and for the more experienced rider, there are many trails and paths designated especially for bikes. We are looking forward to purchasing our own bikes in the near future to explore the area, too.

GREAT LOCATION, BEAUTIFUL HOME, WONDERFUL OWNERS

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 (3 small children) enjoyed a great week at Slimbridge in August, 2013. The house was very clean and is every bit as nice as advertised. Deb & Bill were great to deal with, made us feel very much at home and were easily accessible via cell for any questions that we had. The house is in a very quiet and private location, but very close to eveything in Hyannisport, Centreville and Osterville. Right down the street from groceries, gas, ice cream and beach. Would recommend to family, friends and review readers. Have fun.

Owner's Response: We've tried to make the cottage family friendly with beach toys, board games and kids books, too. There's even a real chalk board in the family room for playing school should a rainy day keep you inside. Sounds like your children enjoyed the house as much as our grandchildren do. We look forward to having you visit Slimbridge again in the future!

A GREAT ESCAPE!

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was perfect for our family. There was lots of room for 4 adults and 2 kids. Located near grocery and fish market which was very convenient. All beach are also easily accessible as well as downtown Hyannis.

The cottage is in very good condition and very clean. I would go back anytime.

Owner's Response: We love being able to walk to both the grocery store and fish market, too! Our grandson blazed a "trail" through the woods behind the house which makes the trip to the store even closer. Please keep us in mind in the future.

WONDERFUL FAMILY BEACH VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This property and pictures looked like everything we wanted for our family vacation. Upon arrival we were thrilled. Everything was just as nice as the pictures and maybe better. The neighborhood and location are great and safe for children and adults.

The home was very clean upon arrival.The linens were nice and plentiful for a family of eight.

Where this property is located there are many beaches,playgrounds and restaurants within a very short drive. The beach pass allows you to pick from many ponds and beaches to enjoy while on the
Cape.

This rental is truly one to return to again, ensuring many wonderful memories.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this wonderful review. We couldn't agree more. One of the things we especially like about our home is its proximity to so many things to do while being located in a quiet family friendly neighborhood. We'd love to have you return to Slimbridge Cottage the next time you plan a trip to Cape Cod!

THE PLACE REALLY IS THAT NICE

  • 5 of 5
When I saw the listing for the property online, my thought was: This place is too good to be true, but even if it's only half as nice it is worth the price. I will quote my eight year old as she said it best: oh daddy, I wish we could live here! Not only is the house absolutely gorgeous, but the property and the neighborhood are simply beautiful. I cannot imaging anyone being disappointed! Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: We had the same reaction when we were shown the place by our Realtor. "This is too good to be true." So glad you and you and your family loved the cottage as much as we do. We hope you'll return in the future!
