Bedrooms 3
Space 1,200 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathroom home, sleeps 8.

Oceanview three bedroom, two bath home with breathtaking views from Barnstable Harbor to Sandy Neck. This newly refurbished, professionally decorated (2002) house is located only barefoot steps to its own private ocean beach.

Take a leisurely walk to Barnstable Village to dine or shop at the many restaurants, antique shops, comedy club, penny candy store, ice cream shop, and library (oldest in country). Take a walk or trolley ride to Mill Way Beach/Barnstable Harbor for deep-sea fishing, whale watching, dining on the harbor, or absorb the views. The house is located in a very desirable, sought-after area at the end (where the ocean meets land) of a very beautiful and very quiet road. The house is located only minutes drive/trolley to downtown Hyannis shops, restaurants, Barnstable Airport, golf, mall, Melody Tent, Kennedy Museum, and ferries. Relax, enjoy a BBQ, take a hot outdoor shower, and enjoy the sea breezes and your private views and beach!

Great for Children!: The yard is perfect for children to keep themselves busy and is set back from the (very) quiet road. It's a perfect place for children to learn to ride a bike or just to bicycle back-and-forth. The private ocean beach directly in front of our house will keep any child busy for hours with its endless collection of shells and ocean-life. We supply the beach toys and beach chairs for you!

Park Your Car and Don't Touch It Until You Go Home: Carless:

If you want to go on vacation and never touch your car during your stay, this is the spot for you. Between the walking distance nearby restaurants, general store, beaches, whale watching, antiquing, and trolley -- you'll never have to get in to your car until it's time to go home! Which, of course, you won't want to do when you see the view we have for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

From our beach house guest log:A wonderful place to stay -- very comfortable -- very relaxing. We came with very special friends and had a great time. View great -- must say that the "The Belfry" in Sandwich is a very special place to eat. Hope to come back again.P.S. We really loved having the "living space" upstairs.

Great family place

  • 5 of 5

We went with another family with 3 kids total. Kids loved that we could walk to the beach or ride bikes from the house. I walked or ran into the town in the mornings- nice neighborhood and cute house with amazing views! Was stocked well enough for us to cook most things. Comfortable and clean.

Charming cottage on Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

Adorable Cape Cod cottage in idyllic location! We're annual visitors and can't wait to return! It's comfortably furnished and abundantly stocked with linens, cookware and dinnerware, and paper products. We love the view of the harbor and the convenience to the quaintness and charm of the village. Martha

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over Xmas break with our son. The house was comfortable and well-appointed. Beautiful view over the water, and a 15 min walk to Barnstable village. Exactly as described, and highly recommended.

Charming Beach Cottage on Beautiful Cape Cod Bay

  • 5 of 5

Shannon was a delightful off-site host. All communications and paperwork were prompt and professional and I had a sense of comfort and stability even before the trip. Shannon provided a thorough list of eateries, shopping and information. We arrived at the cottage on a crisp fall morning just after the end of tourist season. The cottage provides easy access to the Bay and beautiful Barnstable Village is within a short walking distance. We had everything we could wish for in kitchen supplies. The cottage was adorned in restful colors with comfortable furnishings. Shannon was available to address our questions. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a restful water getaway.

Love it!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 4 year old daughter and I stayed here over a weekend in late October. We booked the day before and Shannon made the process extremely easy. It's a beautiful, relaxing 15 minute walk into town. The house is just off the water in the Salten Point neighborhood...which I think is the nicest spot in all Barnstable (I lived here 30 years ago during summers). The night we arrived the wind was howling and the temperatures were in the 40s...but the night was so beautiful with the afterglow of the sunset, stars, moon, incredible views across Barnstable Bay to the dunes of Sandy Neck. and the total serenity of the location. The house is immaculate and quickly got toasty warm once we turned up the heat. It's an amazing place. Some things we enjoyed: bundling up that first night and walking into town to eat dinner at The Dolphin (love traditional Cape seafood fare!), awaking to an incredible morning glow across the Bay and walking into town to Nirvana Coffee for breakfast (this may be the best little coffee shop ever...delicious pastries and sandwiches), walking into town the second morning to get breakfast at the Blue Plate Diner (another great spot), searching for shells along the shoreline in front of the house, and having drinks on the balcony the second afternoon (which was warmer and less windy). We visited here from NYC and my wife is very particular about hotels...and she loved Shannon's home. We're definitely planning to return. I'm sure this home is incredible during the summers...but to me nothing can beat the Cape during the offseason. If you're looking for peace and relaxation, yet convenience too....this is the spot. I was expecting the home to be nice...and it exceeded my expectations. Also, there's a great little market in Barnstable Village (between Nirvanna Coffee and Blue Plate Diner).

I found this place while looking for a rental that had ocean view, private beach, and was big enough for a family of 7. Because of the way houses are set up on the cape, that is hard to find. Fortunately, this place has it all and is priced really affordable! We stayed a week in September. Shannon was great to plan with and was very honest about what to expect. We arrived in the small town of Barnstable and made our way to the beach house. It was a adorable beach house, nestled between some larger places, but with its own fenced in yard. The inside of the house was clean and cozy. There are three bedrooms in the downstairs. One of them was a little bigger than the other two and had a couch as well. There are two bathrooms. The upstairs has a cute kitchen, fully stocked with all the dishes you'll need. Note here* The stove was nice, but very outdated and was not great too cook on, but manageable. The upstairs has a pull out sofa and flat screen TV, set up with Amazon and Netflix. The Best Part of the house was the beautiful view of the bay from the upstairs! It was so relaxing. There's a small porch that is attached to the upstairs slider doors and this overlooks the bay. This was a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning and your lobster in the evening. Note* this porch is great but be careful with your kids who climb! In the backyard there is a nice little porch attached to slider doors on downstairs. There also an outdoor shower which we used a couple of times to wash sandy children off. From there you can take a short stroll down to the beach. The beach is a bay beach. It is not sandy, so bring swim shoes. It's great for setting up a chair and relaxing though. The tide does come in quite a ways so pay attention. From this beach we caught the most delicious Striper we've ever had! Beautiful, fish! You'll need a license, but I'll tell you it's so worth it! We cooked the fish for dinner and they were ridiculously good! I highly suggest getting a clam digging license because this beach is LOADED with clams. Just pick a spot, start digging, and whamo, clams everywhere! They were by far the best clams we've ever eaten! The town of Barnstabele is very small. There's a yummy diner and a delicious coffee shop. I would walk there many times a day. It's about a mile walk. Biking is fun and we did two 10 mile trips! There are many beautiful sandy beaches within 5 to 10 minutes drive from house. Good Wi-Fi. This is a place to relax!

Don't Pack Anything!:

We've provided everything for you so you don't have to pack it. We provided big fluffy beach towels, high-quality linens and bath towels, beach chairs, and beach toys. We've provided all the information for bike rentals, kayak rentals, and what to do in the area.


Bring your bikes and ride around the picturesque streets with oceanviews or take advantage of the local bike paths! Perhaps even try something new like ocean kayaking where we can schedule a 1 or 2 person (or more) kayak at the beach house for the week, complete with lifevests, instruction, and delivery/pick-up. The immediate area is written in many guidebooks as an oasis for ocean kayaking! A ''must-do'' is the large high-speed jet propelled whale watch yacht docked at the walking distance Barnstable harbo
