Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know that we had a perfect stay at The Nautilus. We loved the place, the beach, the beds, the equipment and everything else. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who would like to go to Cape Cod!

Outside 'after swim' shower; blender; sun decks; patio picnic tables; very large deck off kitchen and dining room; private beach. Our beach house is VERY comfortable, and ROOMY for extended families and groups of friends. There is a lot of room, in both our house and on the upper and lower sun decks. Because our house is quite roomy, renters can have their own 'space' and enjoy the peace and quiet of a Cape Cod beach experience. Our beach house is truly a home away from home. It is equipped with lots of creature comforts. Our house is in excellent condition, very clean, nicely decorated and beautifully maintained.

This is a beach house that had everything we desired: gorgeous ocean views, beautiful furnishings, comfortable beds, games, prints, books, DVD's. decks, patios, grills, outside shower, beach chairs, room for everyone. Our family thorougly LOVES staying at this wonderful oceanfront beach house. A week's stay at The Nautilus beach house feels like a week in paradise. We have vacationed at this house for over fifteen years and can't wait to go back there once again. This is the beach house people dream of. We can't reccommend it enough. It is a wonderful ocean front home away from home. The private beach is astoundingly beautiful. What a great vacation spot! Everything is VERY clean, cheerful and comfortable in The Nautilus. Once you stay there you'll want to return.

Exceeded my expectations...amazing location, lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Our Family vacation was successful in part because of our home rental. The home was clean and more than we accepted with a fully equipped kitchen and more than enough beds and living accommodations. The air-conditioning was a blessing on those beautiful days when the breezes from the water refused to move! Also, the communication with the home owner when I had questions was easy and thorough and I was happy to be prepared for everything - or almost everything - when I arrived. The only issue that I had was my fault....I failed to read the "items you will need" section of the paperwork that arrived when my rental agreement was complete. I was supposed to bring sheets and towels with me and at the last minute I had to scurry to rent these items from a local establishment....easy but could have been prevented if I read the information first :) All in all, an amazing vacation!

Great Beach Home

  • 5 of 5

The Nautilus is a well appointed, maintained and comfortable beach home. The kitchen is very well equipped and updated nicely. Upstairs decks look out over the beach and offer beautiful views. Our 8 adults and 1 baby were very comfortable and we had a wonderful vacation and made many wonderful memories at the Nautilus!!

Owner's Response: I was a pleasure to have rented to this lovely family. We try to provide a beach house that feels like a home away from home for all of our renters. It means so much to us when our renters enjoy our house, The Nautilus and have an enjoyable vacation. I do hope that Kathleen and her family will return to our home for another Cape Cod vacation soon.

Great location the beach; friendly owner; layout not perfect but house is great!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week stay at the Nautilus! The owner was very easy to work with and answered all my questions both before and during our stay.

We were 8 people (4 adults, 4 kids). There was plenty of room for all of us. The house was clean, well maintained and a perfect spot right on the beach.

The kitchen had everything. The house had lots of books and DVDs if you needed them. We were able to have cook fires on the beach at night and the location is close to many Cape Cod highlights.

My only comment is to pay attention to is the layout. The "bedroom" with the king size bed is just a loft area at the top of the stairs with no door. It has the best view of the ocean but due to its open nature the person sleeping here can hear anyone in the kitchen below who is awake before they are. This house is a dedicated 3 bedroom house with a king bed in the loft and a trundle bed in the upstairs family room (the room has a door and can be closed off for sleeping but has all the sliding doors to the upper patio- where I would find myself in the morning enjoying coffee and the awesome view!- but that could disturb those who might be sleeping in the upper family room).

I would book here again -- we had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: First, let me say that we thoroughly enjoyed having Michelle and her rental party stay at our beach house. We are very fortunate that we have had some very lovely people rent our house, and Michelle and her group were some of them. I would like to address a few things that need clarification. Our beach house is a five bedroom house. As I have explained to our renters, one of these bedrooms is set up as a second floor family room. If our renters want to use this as a bedroom they may. It contains a new queen size sleep sofa with a built in air mattress which can inflate automatically by using the hand control. This room, which is approximately 13' X 20" also contains a brand new pop up trundle bed which can take either two twin size sheet sets or one king size set. The room also has a place to put one's clothes, a bookcase, wicker chairs, coffee table and a TV and phone. It is a great room to use as a bedroom or family room. The main upstairs bedroom which has a king size bed is approximately 10' X 20" long. At the far end of this room is the spiral stairway. This main bedroom has two doors. These doors can be closed off to the family room (that I just described) and the bathroom. There is also a closet between these two doors. Besides these items, this room has the bed, bureau and night stand. It is definitely NOT a loft bedroom. It is a regular bedroom on the same floor as the other bedroom, bathroom and family room/bedroom on the second floor. This bedroom is open to the spiral stairway. (There is also a second stairway) which is outside of the family room. Besides these three bedrooms there are two bedrooms downstairs off of the living room. The upstairs deck which overlooks the beach is 10' X 30". The downstairs deck is 14' X 30". Our beach stretches right in front of the house allowing anyone to drink their morning coffee in a comfortable place and converse without disturbing the other possibly sleeping people in the house. I always want our renters to understand the lay out of our beach house so that they will be well informed if deciding to reserve a week at our house. Again, Michelle was a most welcome renter, and we do hope that she will come back to The Nautilus. I just wanted to clarify that we do have five bedrooms, not three. One of the five is set up as a family room, and the main bedroom on the second floor is NOT a loft. It opens to a spiral staircase but has doors to close itself off from the two rooms that are off of it.

Spacious, clean and spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home to host family from Alabama. The location is perfect. It offers a sandy beach, spectacular sun rises and sunsets. There is plenty of room to spread out for privacy or gather together. The dining room table seats 12 which was great! Everything is in clean/excellent condition and the house is decorated beautifully. The owners are so easy to work with and provide you with everything you need to know. The light switches are even labeled so you know what you are turning on! I would recommend this home to anyone looking for a wonderful spot on Cape Cod!

Owner's Response: I am always so happy to hear that families enjoy gathering at our beach house. It has always been our goal to provide our renters with a home away from home: a place where families can enjoy themselves and build some wonderful memories of the time they were able to spend together. This family who rented our house, like all our renters have been such nice people. We are fortunate that they decided to vacation at our beach house, The Nautilus.

Wonderful home on the beach!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely home. It is steps from the beach, and on cooler days you can sit in the comfy second floor room with a perfect view of the waves on the beach. The house is clean, well-equipped, and in a great location. I recommend this rental house.

Car: recommended

Close to places of interest such as museums, auction houses, gift shops, fine dining and art galleries. Golf courses nearby. Great swimming, boating and fishing. An ideal vacation home for families and honeymooners, retired couples, friends, small family reunions, etc. House sits on the sand dune overlooking its private beach, and the ocean. Our beach is a pristine Cape Cod beach. Our beach house is very roomy, clean, modern, comfortable and attractive. It is a wonderful home away from home; a place where great vacations can be enjoyed to the fullest. Our very large upper sundeck and outdoor patio make for fine outdoor living.

Other Activities: We are close to the Sandwich glass museum, one of a kind fine gift shops, great antiquing and auctions, both fine and casual dining summer playhouses, whale watches, boat tours of the Cape Cod Canal, Cape Cod Canal visitors' center, Green Briar nature center, trout hatchery, Heritage Plantation which houses a very large and impressive vintage car museum, as well as paintings, antiques, etc.
