About the property

This cozy cottage is one of 20 free standing condo cottages at the Wellfleeter and has a spectacular waterfront view of Wellfleet Harbor and Cape Cod Bay - from every room! Private stairs lead you down to the sandy bay beach for swimming, boating, fishing, shell fishing, or just plain relaxing! The sunsets will take your breath away. The beach is just 20 ft from this condo. Right down the street from the playground, skateboard park, tennis and basketball courts. The town pier, many restaurants, art galleries and shopping in downtown Wellfleet are within a short distance. I often walk it. The cottage has wireless internet!

About Kathleen Nagle

I was born in the Bronx, NY, grew up in Westchester County and moved to Wellfleet in 2000. I love Wellfleet and the Outer Cape and feel very fortunate to call it my home! I work as a Realtor for Kinlin Grover Real Estate helping both Buyers and Sellers purchase and sell their homes. I have owned this sweet little cottage since 2003 and still pinch myself when I walk into it.

I do not advertise this cottage on Craigslist and if you find it there someone is scamming you. I do not take Western Union payments.

Kathleen Nagle purchased this cottage in 2003

Why Kathleen Nagle chose Cape Cod

Truthfully, when I bought this property I had no idea how much I would love it. Since it was a seasonal cottage it was less expensive than a house and fit our budget. It hadn't been updated and really needed someone to give it some loving. We gutted it to the exterior walls, insulated and updated the electrical and plumbing and put it back together. This cottage is in such an amazing location both my mom and I talk about spending our entire summers there at some point. Until I can afford to do that I will be renting it out though and would love to have you come and enjoy my little slice of heaven!

What makes this cottage unique

Location, location, location- I still pinch myself when I am over at the cottage that I am fortunate enough to own it! Although the space is small, the fabulous location more than makes up for it. Sometimes when I am in the cottage looking out at the water I feel like I am on a cruise ship.

Please note- Homeaway requires owners to select a box on things like refund policy. My policy is stated in the lease so please read that.

The cleanliness of the cottage is extremely important to us. We work to make sure you arrive to a sparkling clean cottage. It is equally important that you leave the cottage just as clean for the next tenant and we have a checklist that we will use to make sure you did. A cleaning service can be provided for an additional charge of $175, otherwise you are expected to clean yourself and leave it in the condition you found it. If the cottage requires any additional cleaning it will be deducted from your security deposit. Our check out time is before 10:00 am. Experience has taught me that although the cottage is small, in order to make sure it is left clean enough, you should start the night before. **If you would like to rent sheets, bath and beach towels please contact The Furies to make those arrangements. They are right here in Wellfleet (508) 349-1145.

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This little cosy cottage is sparkling clean, bright and airy, with a beautifully-equipped kitchen that has every amenity you could ask for, comfortable beds, and many thoughtful extras such as umbrellas, rain ponchos, and fans. It is tastefully decorated, with nice colors and good-quality furniture - definitely NOT your average dreary, musty, cheaply-supplied vacation cabin! Steps away from the water, which is lovely to swim in, and close to town. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to come back next year.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week in this cottage. Upon arrival the cottage was spotless and looked exactly like the booking photos. The ocean views from every room were great, the furniture was comfortable, the bathroom updated and the kitchen was equipped with anything that may be needed. The private beach was perfect for our two toddlers - it was a minute from the front door, shallow, calm, relatively warm and filled with sea shells. Although close to the center of town, at night the complex is quiet. The unit got a great ocean breeze and we slept to the sound of the waves.

A Perfect Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We could go on and on about how clean this cottage was, how nicely decorated, the ideal location right on the beach with beautiful water views from almost every window, the welcoming owner, and how each night we were lulled to sleep by the sound of gentle waves. Also, the wonderful local restaurants, golfing, the pier, and Wellfleet Center with its many quaint shops (don't miss the ice cream shop), all just a few minutes away. We would recommend this cottage to anyone who wants a relaxing vacation and would definitely stay there again.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

If you have never stayed at this Wellfleeter Cottage, then I suggest you do. It is very quaint, cozy and is the type of home that The Cape is known for. It has been newly renovated in a modern/tasteful way. Every aspect of the house was functional and although the square footage is on the smaller side, it felt plenty spacious and comfortable. The location can not be beat. It is about a 5 minute walk to the Wellfleet pier where there are restaurants, ice cream, a park for kids and a pier to watch the boats. The private beach is literal 20 feet from the condo and can never be crowded. I would definitely recommend this cottage to anyone!

Adorable squeaky clean cottage with gorgeous views

  • 4 of 5

Very cute and super clean. Beautiful views from the bedroom windows. It was a joy awaking to the sunrise and walking along the ocean. Kitchen is very small but has all the necessities, including a fold out table with folding chairs. The cabinets have all the dishes you'll need, but it there isn't much room for dry non-refrigerated food/snacks -- but I dined out in the fabulous area restaurants anyway so that was no problem for me. Nice bathroom. Both bedrooms have a bureau, and one has a closet. Living area was comfortable and roomy enough. Cute personal touches in the decor. Nice bench outside to take in the views.

This premier location is right on the Bay and is walking distance from fine and casual dining, the Town Pier, the new Stage Harbor Actor's Theater, and Wellfleet's Town Center, featuring art galleries, shops and more eateries! Also in walking distance are hiking trails, town playground, skateboard park & public tennis courts. Additional tennis and golf facilities are available at nearby Chequessett Country Club. It's a short drive to the ocean beaches, fresh water ponds, The Audubon, flea market, drive-in theater, bike trail and more! Provincetown is 20 miles down the road for great whale watching, shopping and more galleries and restaurants.

If you haven't been to the Outer Cape and Wellfleet in particular, you are in for a treat! Over 60% of the town is protected as National Seashore, so there is lots of undeveloped land for hiking, biking and bird watching. The beaches are some of the best anywhere. In places Wellfleet is only 3 miles wide with Bay beach on one side and Ocean on the other. When the tide is low you can walk way out on the bay side flats collecting shells or actually go clamming. Sit at Mayo Beach at a picnic table and watch the oystermen tending to their oyster grants. The ocean side is great for boogie boarding or even surfing at times. In the summer, the days are usually warm and the nights cool. Enjoy the beautiful stars or get a permit and have a beach bonfire! If you are lucky enough to be here for a full moon you can watch the full moon rising while sitting on the ocean beach listening to the waves crash.

There are private steps accessing our private bay beach and a small paved area outside our cottage for using our small gas grill. There is a hose on the back of the cottage. There are also benches overlooking the bay which convert into an eating area.

Other Activities: art galleries, shopping, dining, theater, playground

Golf: Chequessett Yacht Club, Wellfleet Captains Course, Brewster

Ski: sit on the beach and plan your winter vacation!
