About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 3.25 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Situated on the west coast of Falmouth, this open, spacious contemporary enjoys gorgeous sunset and ocean views. Cool ocean breezes keep it comfortable all summer. This area of Sippewissett is exclusive and provides a sense of serenity and privacy. A circular drive, holding four or more cars, leads to the home. Enter through double doors to a multi-level solarium that runs the length of the house.

The first level has two large bedrooms, one twin-bedded next to the solarium and the other can be either twins or king bedded with french doors leading to a patio and an HDTV. These bedrooms share a marble bath. The master suite has a queen bed, sitting area with fireplace, marble bath and spa, and French doors leading to patio and gardens.

A grand oak central staircase leads to the second level. This large, light filled open space with a soaring cathedral ceiling, stunning furnishings and original art, features a living area with corner fireplace, a large dining area and a fully-appointed gourmet kitchen. Three sets of French doors lead to a 40 foot deck with chaises, Adirondack chairs, dining furniture, and a gas grill.

In addition, there is a den with sectional couch (sleeps two), built-in desk, WiFi internet connection, cable 46 inch HDTV, DVD Blu-ray player and dozens of games, books and puzzles. A full marble bath completes the second level.

Our private, warm-water beach on Buzzards Bay is a few steps from the house. An enclosed outside shower is available, as is a charming shed to store bicycles. The gardens and patio around the house contain wonderful places for relaxation. Overall there is a romantic quality to the property with its draped wisteria, beach roses and blue hydrangeas. Everything is included for an extraordinary experience in a special part of the world.

Wonderful, though rainy week!

  • 5 of 5

In spite of challenging weather, we had a wonderful stay at Myra's home. The living space worked beautifully for our family of Grandparents, adult daughter, great-grandfather, infant and two year old. Myra greeted us on our arrival with a tour of the spotless house and easy to work systems. Her home is easy to clean, well stocked, and lovingly decorated. The outdoor shower is perfect. The neighborhood is gorgeous. A rocky beach with beautiful views is within an easy walk, even for children. Wear beach shoes to explore the beach, it will make your explorations easier. Most summers ,I go to the outer cape, yet I was happy to learn this close to Boston area is just as beautiful in its' own way. I recommend Myra's home for a happy vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you Margie and Arthur for choosing to stay at our home during your vacation. I wish I had more control over the weather, but it sounds like you brought your own sunshine with you. We enjoyed meeting the whole family and can't thank you enough for taking such incredibly good care of our house. We wish you all the best and hope to welcome you back to Falmouth in the near future. My best, Myra

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home & great location. This was the perfect pick for our mini-family reunion. Large open living room/kitchen area was ideal for time together, with separate den, sun room and large deck to spread out. Easy access to Falmouth village, but tucked away from the congestion. Myra made the entire rental process easy, and was very responsive throughout. Highly recommended.

Perfect Month in Falmouth

  • 5 of 5

We found Myra to be a great, fast and very helpful in securing our stay. We were at her house for a month and enjoyed everyday. This is the first time that we felt like we were at home. The house is a wonderful and beautiful home away from home. From sun room to the sun deck watching the sunsets. We were blessed to have found Myra and her home in Falmouth and will return for another adventure in Cape Cod.

Perfect Family Vacation - We will return !

  • 5 of 5

From the very first contact with Myra I knew her beautiful home in the Sippewissett neighborhood North Falmouth was going to be great for our family. The experience exceeded our expectations. The home was spotless, and the layout perfect for late night conversations and catching up . The deck and grill work well for dinners, the kitchen is well equipped and the yard was large enough for a family games of "corn-hole". The location is ideal, it felt like we were five minutes from everything, great beaches, Woods Hole, and Falmouth Center. This is the 4th home we have rented over the past 8 summers and it is by far the best. We will return!

BEST EVER RENTAL!!!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for sharing your home!

Let me begin with how easy it was to communicate with the owner, Myra. She quickly responded to my every message. Checking in was a breeze with Rebecca meeting us there even earlier than we expected! She showed us around so we felt at home and even gave us her number in case we needed anything.

The house is beautiful with the open floor plan, we enjoyed sharing our time in the kitchen and on the deck. A VERY short walk to a beautiful beach (with some rocky sections). We enjoyed bonfires at sunset. Everything was a very quick drive from the house/ Woods Hole ferry to Martha's Vineyard, groceries, restaurants, shops, bike trail, beaches etc. (we especially enjoyed the beach at the end of wood neck road that was a 2 minute car ride away).

Beds were extremely comfortable and house was immaculate.

The yard was beautiful and we loved playing croquet in the evenings.

I highly recommend this property

Outstanding house...

  • 5 of 5

Look no further in Falmouth area..This is an outstanding house in a great location. Perfect for a couple or for a family.

The views of the water from the upstairs deck are gorgeous, so are the sunsets over the water. The upstairs open living, dining and kitchen area is beautifully furnished. The house has all the high end amenities that one would want or wish in any rental . The spectacular art work is the icing on the cake in this property.

Very short drive to center of Falmouth for dining. A private small beach is diagonally across the street from the house.

This house is truly a rare find. Enjoy!

In addition to our beautiful beach, Falmouth offers miles of spectacular coastline with many quaint harbors for great boating and fishing. The area also boasts some of the best golf courses on the Cape. Falmouth village is quintessential Cape Cod with a wide variety of great restaurants, interesting shops, art galleries, and a family entertainment center. Several movie complexes are nearby, as well as a local theatre group. Bicycle or walk the Shining Sea Bike Path, one of Falmouth's great treasures. The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and ferries to Martha's Vineyard are close by in Woods Hole.
