About Eileen or Wally

We're too shy for this. We're just a couple of school teachers.. But we are easy to talk to.

Eileen or Wally purchased this house in 1935

Why Eileen or Wally chose East Sandwich

This house was built by my father and grandfather and it has been in the family ever since. It is still home to us.

What makes this house unique

There is simply no prettier place on earth than Cape Cod in the summer. We have the beach, the salt marsh, peace and quiet, and friendly people staying all up and down the beach. Just a little bit of heaven right here on earth.

The peace and quiet of this house/ beach was amazing. Most of the time we had the beach to ourselves. Having a place that we could bring our dogs was what drew us here. The rocky beach was a surprise but good water shoes made it manageable. We hope to come back next summer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the keep words. We are always happy when someone loves this place as much as we do. Interestingly, the beach changes virtually every year. Sometimes there are more rocks than others. Sometimes more sand than others . It is what we call a "primitive" beach and subject to the ebbs and flows of nature. We look forward to having you back!

Hidden Gem!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about how great of a rental this is. The house has that old-school Cape feeling. It's not modern but it's very cozy and spacious. The house is pretty much in the dunes so you're only steps from the beach. Other rentals may claim they are steps from the beach but this house truly is. The beach is private so you'll have ample space. It felt like we were the only ones on the beach. Swimming, laying and playing on the beach during the day and fires on the beach at night. My family and I only left the house once to go out to dinner. Aside from that we didn't want to miss a moment of this place. Bring your water shoes as part of the beach is rocky (but nothing the shoes can't handle). The owners are awfully nice people who are very accommodating. If this rental is available next year I'm definitely going back!

Jeff and the pups

  • 5 of 5

I had the honor of renting "Sweet Sixteen" over the entire winter. One would think that staying at a beach house over a cape cod winter would not be very enjoyable, but I had a blast.

This home has a great vibe to it, the living room is situated in such a manner as the fireplace is front and center and with plenty of gather around room, the walls are covered in very tasteful paneling and great aquatic art work. I love that there are windows all around!

The house is situated on the beach but also affords incredible views of the marsh, the marsh also is an inlet from the bay and is great for launching kayaks.

There is a deck right on a berm overlooking the beach and all of Cape Cod bay, you can even see the Pilgrim monument in P-town and the cape as it winds around the bay.

As one winds down the bumpy dirt road further and further down a path, you suddenly pop out in a sunny row of beach houses-how relaxing is that!? You feel as if you are far from everything but are actually just minutes from Sandwich and back over the bridge...

Great place, great location, Eileen and Wally are just really good people!

Can"t wait to go back!

Relaxing Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We just loved staying here! It is a true Old style Cape Cod cottage. It is a house not afraid of a little sand on the floor. Close to the ocean, lots of room for 4 couples (one with a baby that brought a pack and play) teenager on the pullout couch. You could get away from each other easily. We loved the fireplace in the main room and open layout . The bedrooms have plenty of room.There are 1 1/2 bathrooms inside and a great outdoor shower! The kitchen is well stocked with everything one could possibly need for cooking. On the down side, I would suggest a few new mattresses by second night ended up with a very sore back. There were a few issues not the fault of the owners since they live out of state. The cleaning people did a bad job of cleaning, cobwebs, open box of cereal left on table... Dish washer door was broken so slammed down on someone foot and the coffee pot was cracked I assume from a previous renter, and be aware there is septic we had an issue but the owners took care of it right away! There is a deck about 20 steps from the house with a table and chairs and huge views of the beach and Cape Cod Bay. We would recommend staying here and plan on a return trip as the positive outweighed any negative. Just a great location can't be beat!

Relaxing beach retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a great week at this lovely cottage. It has the charm and design of an early beach cottage but with modern conveniences and updates. The four bedrooms are a rarity in rental property on this beach. We had a 2 married couples and a 4 month old and a single. It was the perfect setting for all of us. The bath and a 1/2 bath and the outside shower were greatly appreciated. The deck is great for watching the surf and the beach is lovely and quiet. The location is very private and quiet. The cottage had everything we needed including the luxury of a dishwasher and washer/dryer. That was very handy with a baby in residence. We would definitely stay here again.

Week at the Beach on Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at this lovely Cape Cod Beach house. Although an older home, it has all of the rustic charm you would expect at the Cape. The private beach right off the back deck was wonderful. The house is located so that you feel you are in a private setting, unlike many other Cape beach houses. It was an extremely comfortable and relaxed stay and we plan to come back next year!
