Overview

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.

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.

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).

Location:

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.

*Adventure-Seekers:*

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
