Enjoy your vacation at this beautiful and serene setting, right next to the Audubon Society's Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, north of Rt.6A in the Cummaquid area, with 2 surrounding acres of nature that attract many different types of birds, butterflies, and berries and also offers a relaxing and private setting to come home to after a day at the beach, whale watching, biking, shopping and the many other activities the area offer! This is a great home for an extended family vacation or groups of 6-7 friends for a getaway! For the summer season June-Labor Day stay for a week or more, in the off-season come for a 3-night stay or more! With the 2 gas fireplaces in this home, the Cape is a great place to visit in the Fall, Winter, and Spring too!
Spacious air conditioned home is immaculate (with a/c units in each bedroom and all living spaces), 2.5 bathrooms and a private outdoor shower on the deck, outdoor living space and a yard surrounded by acres of nature and beauty. First floor includes master bedroom with a king size bed along with a large full bath (walk-in shower), a combined living/dining area with a gas fireplace for those chilly nights to warm up next to while enjoying a glass of wine, and an open and fully-equipped kitchen with eat-at counter and 4 highback chairs, Also on first floor is a large 1/2 bath with washer and dryer and all supplies needed for laundry prep.
Walk up the stairs to another large living room with another gas fireplace, entertainment center, and desk/work area for those few times you might need to work at one. This home will make you forget about work, but there is space to get it done, just in case, with WiFi included also. Second floor also includes a large full bathroom with bathtub and shower, 2 large bedrooms with one bedroom with two twin beds, the other with a twin bed and one bunk bed with a twin on top and a double bed on the bottom. An Aerobed is available if another bed is needed. Also included is a Pack-n-Play for the little ones. Plenty of room for groups of 7-8 guests.
If you ever decide to leave the comfort of this home, you are only 1/2 mile walk from the Audubon Society's Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary with beautiful grass trails and meadows while on your way to Barnstable Harbor and the beach at the end of Bone Hill Road. Take a short ride to Millway Beach (lifeguarded) and along that road you'll find the Whale Watch excursion boat, and deep sea fishing charters and several of the finest restaurants in the area. Take a ride 10 minutes away and you'll come to the Cape Cod Mall, Hyannis and Island ferry boats to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket! Along Rt. 6A you'll find speciality shops, restaurants, general/country stores, antique shops, and so much more. And don't forget all the other Town of Barnstable fresh water and ocean beaches that the landlord beach pass gives you free access to!

I am an elementary school adminstrator and come to the Cape every vacation and as many weekends as possible; however, I invite you to share my home when I am not there myself and hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do!
Janet Smith purchased this house in 2007
My family bought our Cape home because we the love the area and want to live here someday. The home is close to Barnstable Harbor, Audubon Society Wildlife Sanctuary Sandy Neck beach, and Rt. 6A, and although close to Hyannis and all the amenities, it feels like we are far away from the hustle and bustle. Being close to the Audubon Society's Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary allows us a beautiful walk to the beach through the grass and meadow trails and also brings all the birds and their beauty right to our home.
The quaintness of Barnstable village and the bay side of the Cape offers 'Old Cape Cod' feel with everything from beaches to restaurants to shops to malls to whale watches, bike rides, long nature walks, to stress-relieving relaxation!
The house was just perfect for our family of 5. The split level house gave everyone some privacy, and plenty of room to move (particularly important when your 3 kids range in height from 5'11" to 6'5". The rooms were large and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and spices which was great when we utilized the propane barbeque on the patio. The outdoor double-head shower was a treat, and refreshing after a day at the beach. Our biggest disappointment was leaving the house after a brief week's stay!
I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a very comfortable place to stay, and centrally located to all of the wonderful places to visit on the Cape! Dave P. of Walnut Creek, CA Vacationed July 2009
This was our first trip to Cape Cod and we traveled from Texas with our two sons ages 15 and 11. I rank this as one of my favorite family vacations ever! Arrangements with Janet were wonderful. She is so friendly and genuinely excited to have you stay at her home.
We were in absolute awe of the beauty of the location of this home. Now having driven much of the Cape and having seen the other major towns (Hyannis, Chatham, Falmouth etc), I'm so glad we found and chose this home and Barnstable. The home is right off of 6A, which is one on the most beautiful drives you will find. The trees are landscaping everywhere is spectacular. This home is just a couple of minutes away from the harbor and we made great memories here! Our first day we took the whale watching excursion from Hyannis whale tours. I think we many have had some extra luck, but the day we went out, we saw over 35 different whales up close. Really close. It was spectacular!!
The next night we came back to the harbor to the restaurant Osterville and picked out our lobster to boil back at the house (more on that to follow). The next day we took a fishing charter on the Aquarius out of the same harbor. Unbelievable day. Great captain and deck hand. We caught many striper and brought home four large fillets for dinner that night. There are great restaurants nearby and a grocery store just minutes away. You are close to everything, but feel as if you are away from it all in a New England paradise.
The house is perfect for a family. It has everything you need to spread out and be comfortable. My favorite memories from this trip are cooking back at the house(I can't believe I just said that!) and enjoying the backyard. Janet has everything you need to make it feel like home. My 11 year old set up a croquet course within minutes of arrival and we laughed and had the best time playing every night. The upstairs is so ideal for families! There is a poker/game table and we had an ongoing poker tourney that we continued in the evenings throughout our stay. The house is extremely clean and has everything you would ever need. The outdoor space is filled with beach gear and outdoor games. Janet leaves you a beach pass with a guide to all the local beaches and she has a basket of things to do and a drawer filled with many local restaurant menus.
This was a wonderful home and I'm so grateful that we stayed here and had this family memory. You will be as well!
We had a wonderful time in Janet's rental home. The house is large and spacious and filled with things to interest every member of the family. It comfortably fit our family of 2 parents, 2 kids and 2 grandparents. Due to mobility issues, the main floor master suite was much appreciated. The beach pass, beach gear and outdoor shower were especially useful. Janet, the owner, was very accessible and responsive to all of my questions. The house is situated in a very tranquil area, but is close, by car, to beaches, malls, markets and various tourist attractions. We liked the relative privacy of Bone Hill Beach and the very warm, but crowded, waters of Craigville Beach. We also enjoyed our day trips to Boston and Provincetown.
This was our first time to the Cape Cod area. It was a wonderful trip. There was so much to do that I wish we could have stayed two weeks. This home is beautifully decorated and very clean. The pictures on the website accurately reflect the home. This was our first time renting from VRBO. Janet, the owner, was great to deal with. Very helpful and responsive to questions, etc.
Given the fact we had 3 grandchildren with us, the location of this home was absolutely ideal. Located on a quiet street, very private large yard and a 12 minute walk to a fabulous beach was perfect. Being only 1.5 miles from the Village of Barnstable meant little time was wasted driving to the harbour, restaurants and grocery shopping. The home itself was perfect for the 3 children, 2 parents and the 2 grandparents. Everything required for our 1 week visit was made available for our use. The Owner was absolutely terrific and made us feel most welcome.A very pleasant experience and one which we will share with others!
We had a great time in this quiet beautiful house with lot of space. The two floors are really convenient with children, everybody has his own space. You're close from the Audubon beach and close by car from a lot of Cape Cod beaches. The localization is perfect, near the mall, Trader Joe's and a lot of interesting things to do. We really enjoyed the Whale watching : the boats leave from Barnstable. The children spent a lot of time too in the garden and enjoyed all the indoor and outdoor games who are provided. Kitchen has everything.
This house was a fantastic rental for our week in the Cape! My husband and I traveled with our two young girls and his parents, and it was the perfect house for our group. My husband's parents enjoyed sitting in the garage space with a cup of coffee in the mornings, and we loved having the two living room areas that provided plenty of space for our girls to play. We found that the large bedrooms and bathrooms make this an ideal house for families traveling with children.
Additionally, the beach pass was a great bonus, and allowed us to visit many of Barnstable's gorgeous beaches. The location of the home is great - nothing seems more than just a short drive away. The owner was so helpful when any questions arose, and we were so appreciative of her responsiveness.
We have traveled to the Cape for years, renting a house each summer. This is the first time we have wanted to rent the same house again in the future! Thanks for a great vacation...we'll be back!
