Great vacation rental!
This will be our 3rd consecutive summer in this cottage (3-weeks each time). Very comfortable, very clean, and with 3 BRs (1 w/dble bed, 1 w/2 twin beds, and 1 w/3 twin beds, all with decent closets), great for having guests or family members visit. In addition to the 1 bath, there is an enclosed outside shower. The very functional kitchen is adjacent to a large dining/living room arrangement, with dining table for 6 adults. There is a large picnic table and patio (wish it were covered for those few rainy days on the Cape), with built-in charcoal grill.
The cottage is 1 of 5 cottages in a quiet setting off the main road in a relatively secluded location. If you're an ice cream lover, there is the renowned Sundae School Shoppe-a mere 3-minute walk. To burn off the ice cream calories, the Sea Street Beach is just an easy 1/2 mile walk away. While parking is ample at the beach, it costs approximately $10-$12/day-another reason for the walking option.
While traffic is typical for a tourist area, it, with pre-planning, is very manageable. Traffic is typically heavy during the late afternoon and early evening hours, particularly if one uses Rt 28 and the Bass River Bridge going towards Hyannis. The cottage is within a short driving distance of a couple of large supermarkets and some local markets, and there are many souvenir shops. Restaurants of all types are abundant (sea food lovers delight). One can easily drive into Hyannis in 30 minutes or P-town in 60 minutes. Woods Hole and the National Oceanographic Institute is about 90 minutes. Ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard depart from nearby Harwich and, of course, Hyannis. There are also several whale-watcher departure locations nearby.
If the weather cooperates, you should have a memorable vacation while staying at this cottage. If any problems occur with respect to the cottage, the owners are an easy phone call away and have been very responsive to any concerns.
