Spacious Cottages Across From Craigville Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

Great duplex cottages located in the heart of beautiful Cape Cod with private yards on private roads where children can bike, skate or play ball. These charming cottages are steps away from the beach which has warm salt water, great sand and gentle surf. Deeded beach rights allow you the privacy of a private beach or a lifeguard protected beach. They are near Hyannis, shopping, and boat docks to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Historic Craigville Village with its 'ole Cape Cod' charm is within walking distance, as well as the famous 4 Seas Ice Cream Store and the Centerville 'penny' country store. Owner managed and maintained properties are well-suited for families. 'Seniors' like the laid back atmosphere especially in spring and fall when it is not so busy. If you enjoy sun bathing, body surfing in the ocean, building sand castles on the beach, romantic walks at sunset, or kite flying with your children, this is the place for you.

Christmas/New Years week: After the hustle and bustle of a hectic holiday, relax in the comfort of a cozy cottage across the street from the ocean

October in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this delightful cottage on Cape Cod. It was Oct. but many restaurants and other tourist activities were open. The cottage was clean, well equiped (lots of dishes and cooking utensils), had a handy guidebook full of places to visit and things to do, and was right across the street from a beautiful beach that we enjoyed walking on and watching magnificent sunsets. We have already recommended it to other family members and can't wait to return......perhaps next time will be in the summer. This is a great place for both families and couples.

Perfect Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Could there be a more perfect place to have a family vacation on Cape Cod? This cozy cottage with all amenities (well appointed kitchen with all the necessities), super clean on arrival and breezy all day long was hard to leave at the end of our stay. A few steps to an ideal beach... great for swimming long distance as well as for children to play in the sandy surf. Minutes from Hyannis and most importantly minutes from the Hyannis Harbor Hawks home field. We were visiting the area to see our son play baseball in the CCBL and he stayed with us in the cottage taking advantage of morning walks and exercise on the beach as well as night walks to appreciate the stars.

The owners, Maxine and Bill were more than friendly. We became part of the family of renters that return year after year, and decade after decade. Everyone knows Maxine and Bill! They were helpful beyond expectations and I would definitely recommend staying with them in their lovely cottages.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure meeting your family and sharing our beach cottage with you. The Cape Cod baseball league is the best in the country . Best wishes to Arden in his career. We were happy we could provide accommodations close to the field as well as other cape attractions. So many of our guests truly do become part of our beach family. Come back and visit us any time.

Heaven on Earth at Craigviille Beach

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been vacationing at this property for 5+ years. The owners are wonderful and make sure that each cottage is maintained inside and out - Clean and comfortable. There is no shortage of dishes or utensils. I have recommended this property to personal friends and family - who have rented and are repeat renters. I have received many thanks for referring them to This Gem in Centerville. You are truly Home away from Home at these cottages!

Early morning walks on the beach was great for shell collecting. Now you have Craigville beach with you all year long. Looking forward to seeing you again next year. Have a happy,healthy year. Until we meet again.

Love staying here!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at these cottages when I was young and was extremly excited to find them again. Bill and Maxine were great taking my reservation and responding to any questions I had. We stayed the last weekend in September and were happy the weather cooperated allowing us to go swimming. The water was beautiful!! And the fact that it was just a few feet away is great. There was just two of us, but it was nice having the spare bedroom to spread out into. I loved my time there and cant wait to go back again!! Thanks again!

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure seeing you again Kasey. It has been a long time since you were little and Grandma would have been so happy that now that you are grown up you came back to enjoy the cottage. September is a lovely time on the Cape and we were glad you were able to enjoy the good weather and the beach. You are most welcome to come back again and we look forward to seeing you.

We just spent a long weekend here (early June). The cottage was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. Maxine and Bill are wonderful hosts--going so far as to put leave us a welcome gift and place signs on the street cheering us on in our Best Buddies Challenge bike ride. I walked the beach each morning and spent wonderful hours reading in the sun in the protected yard. We are booking for next year's Best Buddies Challenge weekend, and are hoping to stay for a week next summer as well. Truly a great find on the Cape. Thank you, Maxine and Bill, for a wonderful weekend.

Owner's Response: It was such a pleasure meeting Team Andrew. The Best Buddies Program is such a wonderful program and we look forward to the Challenge each year. Our cottages are located just down the street from the finish line with the beach directly across the street. We enjoy meeting new people and love sharing our cottages. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
