You will not find a better vacation spot right on the beach on a quiet dead end road. From the moment we pulled onto the beachy sea-windswept Phillips Road, we knew we had made the right choice. The house is located directly on the beach, and both bedrooms have windows overlooking the ocean. We left the windows open so we could hear the waves. In the mornings it was fabulous to be able to walk out onto the beach to look for shells with the kids, without getting in the car. If you have kids, this is the ONLY way to stay at the beach. There were a million sand toys, kids game, beach chairs, and umbrella for guest use. The hammock in the photos is really right on the beach and was a nice place to relax. A table and chairs for 4 outside on the patio was a nice place to have dinner after washing off in the fabulous outdoor shower. There were a lot of nice appliances in the kitchen including an ice cream maker and ice maker but we just brought prepared foods that we reheated on the grill or gas stove.
This home was very clean and tidy, with minimal "breakable" stuff so it was perfect for our family of 6 (kids all under age 9) and my parents. There are window A/Cs in each room but we did not use them. We brought our bikes, and biked to the Sagamore Rail Trail at the end of the road. You can ride this paved bike path for miles and miles and it travels along the scenic canal. The quiet location just near the Sagamore Bridge was perfect, as we ventured into the crowded Cape for day trips, as well as up to Plymouth and out to Edaville / Thomasland Amusement Park for day trips. We found a great ice cream place (Shipwreck?) on the other side of the bridge that was open until 10PM, and was only a few minutes away. Everyone was sad to leave.
The owner was fabulous to deal with, from calling us the morning of our arrival to make sure everything was ok, to offering to let us stay an extra day at no charge (yes! it's true!) which we sadly could not take advantage of due to preexisting plans. If our family does not grow any more, we will be back! Enjoy your stay - you can't go wrong staying at this classic relaxed beach home.
