Oceanview Home with Private Beach, Close to Everything

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 refurbished and professionally decorated 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 the 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 into 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!

Why Shannon Smith chose Barnstable

This unique property provides beautiful ocean views whether you are indoor and outdoors.

It is located in a very quiet neighborhood so if you are looking for quiet relaxation and a place to unwind, look no further.

What makes this house unique

The ocean views and sunsets are not to be missed. The area has so much to provide so you can relax all you want or be as busy as you'd like with nearby activities. And, the mid-Cape location means nothing is out of reach for a jaunt to the national seashore, Plymouth Plantation, Chatham, Provincetown....anything.

The provided Landlord Beach pass allows you entrance to all Town of Barnstable ocean, lakes, and ponds. This permit provides access to Town of Barnstable resident-only beaches and also free access to public beaches.

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.

Quiet and very pleasant stay in Barnstable

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most lovely and quiet place in Cape Code. Very familiar surroundings, and some of the most stunning sunrise and sunset we`vee seen so far (from the living room of the house). Thank you, Shannon!

Charming, relaxing, beautiful view

  • 5 of 5

Reunited here with college friends from the '70s. Such a comfortable and cozy home. The view of the bay and the variety of birds landing on the deck made it all even more special. The town of Barnstable is charming, too. I would love to stay here again!

Great place to relax and have fun!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, daughters and myself really enjoyed our stay in Barnstable. The house was exactly what we expected. Shannon was very accommodating before and during our stay. Relaxing walks down on the beach and enjoyable times spent at the house itself. Barnstable was located close to everything we wanted. From the incredible Whale Watch tour to our daughters driving and spending the day in Salem, to the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Highly recommend for a great family vacation!

Great centrally located Barnstable house

  • 5 of 5

Our ladies week was perfect in this well stocked and maintained house located in a quiet village yet from where it is easy to access other areas of the Cape. We enjoyed walking to the village coffee shop, diner and market, but especially the near perfect weather to bike ride, whale watch, and ferry to Martha's Vineyard. Shannon made the reservation process very easy and was always accessible. We would highly recommend this rental.

Charming cottage wth a lovely view.

  • 5 of 5

This cottage has everything you need for a great vacation. Kitchen is well stocked, beds were comfortable and the owner was more than helpful with local information and ideas. The bathrooms were nice, linen plentiful and washer and dryer a real convenience. The beach pass was especially nice, we were able to visit several beaches. The beach in front of the house was stony, but we enjoyed it just the same. We were able to put kayaks in the water, even our 12 year old grandson was able to paddle around. The hi-speed internet was a real plus. I highly recommend this lovely vacation home.

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.

Location, Location, Location! Compare our beach house to others in the area that charge between $5,000-$6000 per week! You get the same view and amenities!

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
