Seconsett Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

Enjoy your vacation on this quiet, private way, leading to Hamlin Pond, where you can launch our three kayaks to go exploring or use your own small boat, which you can keep in a shallow slip at the same spot. The uninhabited Washburn's Island, part of the Waquoit Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve,is directly across from Seconsett and well worth checking out, as are all the inlets and rivers. Little River Boat Yard is located on the island, for those that have a boat that needs launching.

Our small bay beach is excellent for relaxing, boat and bird watching, our ospreys have a nest right there and are quite something to observe. For activity, you need try the quohogging and clamming. Go dig up your dinner and make some delicious chowder or stuffed quohogs, extra spicy or your favorite recipe.

South Cape Beach is a short drive away and can be accessed using no main roads and no traffic. Spend the day there swimming, relaxing and walking the long beach.

This is a wonderfully roomy house for families looking to enjoy themselves, but not be tripping over each other. There is a large deck that runs the length of the house, with awnings. It seems to be where everyone congregates. It is a natural place for grilling, relaxing and having some fun after a hard day of play. The large, enclosed shower is so refreshing to come home to and is just off the laundry room.

There are three bedrooms, two upstairs with queen beds and one downstairs with 3 twin beds. The open floor plan in the living area has two sliders leading to the sunny backyard deck. The large dining area and kitchen lead to an enclosed, front sunporch, laundry room and bathroom.

There are many excellent golf courses within minutes of the island. We have par 3s, executive, and regulation courses. There is even miniature golf at the Popponesset Market Place, with it's small shops and restaurants.

Mashpee Commons is a 5 minute drive from the island. It contains many well know stores such as Talbots, Coldwater Creek and Pottery Barn, Panera, Gap, to name a few and many unique gift and clothing stores. There are also some excellent restaurants, a movie theater and grocery stores.

Downtown Falmouth has many small shops including the well known Christmas Tree Shop, not to be missed! A day trip to Martha's Vineyard is easy to access by the ferries that run from Falmouth and Woods Hole.

Seconsett Island is easily accessible to either Falmouth or Mashpee, but private enough to still remain undiscovered by many.

About Jeanne Concannon

I came to the Cape right out of college and fell in love with it. I became a year round resident in 1987 and started teaching for the Falmouth School System. I

retired in 2010. I love golf and what better place to be than on the Cape.

I have lived on Seconsett Island since 1987. I live right across the way from 4 Bayview. I love having new neighbors in the summer.

Jeanne Concannon purchased this house in 1998

Why Jeanne Concannon chose Mashpee

I already lived on the island and when this house became available I bought it to use as a rental so I could share this little piece of heaven with others.

What makes this house unique

The house is located on a private dirt road so it's quiet yet close to everything. The back of the house is enclosed with a high wooden fence and tall hemlocks and a deck with awnings that runs the length of the house. It feels private and secluded. I love how you can just go across the street and get the kayaks that are right there and launch them into Hamlin Pond then paddle out into Waquoit Bay. There's so many places to explore. I have quahog rakes and baskets available and again you just walk to the bay and rake up some dinner while the ospreys watch from their perch. Sunsets are outstanding and on a clear night you can even see the 4th of July Falmouth fireworks.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been a MA resident for many years and never knew about Seconsett Island in Mashpee until we stayed there for a wedding at the Popponesett Inn. The house is well-appointed and large. I counted 5 different conversation areas, long rectangular backyard that is fenced in for both kids and dogs, and three bedrooms. This is a lovely house and would recommend to anyone with friends or family. The outdoor shower is strong and fenced off and is a delight with very hot water and right off the laundry room door. Everything was well-provided for and the landlord who lives across the street was really inviting and cordial. I liked the streets, all leading to waterviews and there is a lovely small beach area in the bay for floating (it's shallow but clean) in hot weather. The weather was lovely but there are fans everywhere if it gets hot. Glad to have been there and will come back with family and friends again, I'm sure.

A Perfect Time!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, the weather was September beautiful! However, this lovely home would be most comfortable no matter what the weather!

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves in this well-appointed home! The thoughtful and accommodating owner has given thought to comfort and convenience and we found everything that we needed to make our stay most enjoyable!

We were visiting with our daughter & her husband and their infant son. The home worked well as they had the 2 bedrooms and bathroom upstairs and we had the bedroom and full bathroom downstairs.

The neighborhood was quiet and perfect for walks with lovely vistas of the bay and the the marsh.

We hope to return to this most comfortable home!

More spacious than photos indicate

  • 5 of 5

Nice house - the living/dining area is vast, allowing us all to be together without being on top of each other. Adding to that space is a newly enclosed porch and a large outdoor awning-covered porch: we thought we were in a mini mansion. The house has room for more than 9, but you must be up front with the owner about the size of your group (and know that there are only 2 baths, tho the enclosed outdoor shower works well).

Jeanne, the helpful owner, lives across the street. She was available without being at all intrusive.

Note that the VRBO site mistakenly lists this as 'water view', tho it IS only a few steps to two beautiful inlets.

This area of the Cape is surprisingly quiet and lovely - you are surrounded by beaches, water and nature, not Christmas Tree shops.

One of the nicest places my extended family has ever stayed.

Great Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The layout of this house was wonderful for entertaining, with plenty of seating and a great deck and private backyard. Our family of 6 was very comfortable, and we especially appreciated the ceiling fans and central air. The location was convenient to everything. We would love to stay again!

Week at the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place for us to stay on our recent visit to the Cape! It was centrally located to all of our activities, remote enough to provide privacy and yet within easy driving distance of any other places we wished to be. The house was clean, well stocked and spacious enough to handle a good sized party crowd! We were particularly happy with the fenced in backyard which gave our two dogs plenty of room to run and be on their own turf. The owner Jeanne, was friendly and helpful which helped to make our stay more enjoyable. We would definately recommend this house for others to use.
