In 2014 we were thrilled to have over 20 families spending time at our home. This house is on a private street that dead-ends into the beach and is located just 50 yards from the water. The changing of the tides offers wonderful swimming, access to clam flats, boating, sand bars, fishing and other activities. Barnstable Harbor, which offers whale watching, charter fishing and boating slips is a short walk from our house. Wonderful beaches at Sandy Neck are only a short boat ride away and offers substantial fun for beachcombers. Fresh seafood and restaurants are within walking distance. The home offers four bedrooms, with two queen beds and 4 twin beds. There is a back patio for cookouts. The house has a washer, dryer, microwave and coffee-maker. The house offers a TV, with cable and access to the internet. Along with the two bathrooms, there is an enclosed outside shower. All bed linens are provided as well as bath towels, beach towels and beach chairs. The house offers central A/C and wireless internet access. No smoking is allowed. .
Enjoy the private beach just steps away for swimming, canoeing and kayaking during the day and breathtaking sunsets in the evening. Sandy Neck is a boat ride away, with some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast. The home is a short drive to downtown Hyannis where there are a variety of gift shops, restaurants, tourist attractions, and ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Route 6A offers a variety of gift shops, antiques and restaurants and there are many public golf courses within Barnstable. Relax, enjoy the breathtaking sunsets and ocean breezes!
Where else on the East Coast can you take a photo of a sunrise over water and a sunset over water, while standing on the same beach?
We spent the month of September at 104 Harvey Ave. I think the word "magical" describes it best. 29 days of glorious weather (neighbors told us they'd never experienced a September like it) didn't hurt and a super moon lunar eclipse viewing from the beach put it over the top. Low tide on the eve of the lunar eclipse allowed us to walk out into the harbor all the way to the channel. (Again, neighbors said they had never seen the tide so low.) Barnstable Market is a great little market not to be missed and morning coffee at Nirvana quickly became a daily ritual. The kids LOVED Pirates Cove mini golf, as did the adults. Osterville Too served the best fried scallops we've ever had. But mostly we enjoyed our time spent in this wonderful cozy home with the amazing views!
This is a beautiful Cape Cod home. Exactly what we were hoping for. The views are spectacular, the home was very comfortable and we made memories which will last a lifetime. I would highly recommend this rental.
This is a wonderful vacation home. Our family stayed here 2 years in a row. Easy to get to, beautiful views and absolutely amazing sunsets! Not only does the home have all of the basics including, bed linens, bath towels & many beach towels, they also have sand chairs, boogies boards, beach toys and a cooler too. 2 of the bedrooms are downstairs which is great for older & younger family members. Being so close to the beach is the best accommodation of all! Even sitting in the front yard under the tree looking at the ocean is enjoyable. We really enjoyed our walks during low tide out to the sandbar. I would recommend having beach shoes, lots of crabs in the water! You can walk to the harbor for a whale watch or to eat. Barnstable Village is within walking distance or a very short drive. We really like the Nirvana Coffee Shop. There is a great library close by and it's only about 30-40 minutes (not on the weekend!) to Chatham Center which is a fun place to shop and maybe see a shark! I highly recommend this home away from home. The owners are so nice and very professional. Enjoy!
We enjoyed our family Christmas on the Cape in this lovely home. The house suited our 8-person family perfectly. The well equipped kitchen was a plus. We would recommend this house, with its excellent water views, to anyone wanting a Cape Cod vacation. The owner was also extremely responsive to questions and otherwise communicated effectively. Thanks!
We loved staying int his home! It was exactly what you expect when you think of a cape cod home. The owner was very nice and the information on things to do was very helpful. We loved staying in the center of the cape as it was very convenient to get to all of the places we wanted to sightsee. The beach was very close and nice for the kids to play. Also loved the yard and the toys that were available. The layout of the home worked well for our family of 6.
This home exceeded our expectations. The home was not only well maintained, it had a beautiful view and was steps to the beach. We invited my niece and her husband along with their 4 children, ages, 7, 5 (Twins) and 2. They all had a great time at the beach and the water temperature was not an issue. We hope to rent this home again.
My wife spent her summers in Barnstable as a child and now that we have our own young daughter, we were excited to return to build similar memories. This house far exceeded our expectations. Its location just feet from the water, with spectacular views from the den and kitchen table made every day a joy. The rooms were very comfortable, beds with down pillows, soft cotton sheets, and whole house air conditioning made our stay incredibly comfortable. There were tons of beach towels, beach toys, beach chairs, umbrellas and a spacious outdoor shower to rinse of the salt and sand everyday. In fact I never took a shower inside, even when it rained. The house is also well equipped with fast wireless internet and flat screen tv in the den (for those rare occasions that you need to catch up on email or a snippet of news). The town of Barnstable is very special place as it is not incredibly touristy like many other Cape towns. It has a down home feel and sense of community that we love. The new Barnstable Market is a great addition with fresh local fruits and veggies plus a fantastic selection of wines, beers, gourmet snacks, pints from the best local ice cream purveyors, and deli that makes delicious sandwiches. Just walking distance from the house is Oysterville Fish Too, where we found the Cape's best lobster roll and other seafood classics. Although there are many restaurants nearby, we found cooking at home in the well equipped kitchen and BBQ made for our favorite meals. There are so many farms wtihin a few minutes drive selling the freshest foods of the season.
If you can't tell, we loved our trip. I could go on and on but you must see it for yourself. We have stayed at many fine hotels around the world but when it comes to making summer memories for our family, we hope to do it here every year.
Wonderful shopping is available on Route 6A, including gift shops, antique stores and museums. There are tennis courts and golf courses within a short drive, including par 3 courses. The wonderful shops on Main Street in Hyannis are only a 10 minute ride and offers gift shops, miniature golf, restaurants, candy stores and clothing stores. The famous Four Seas Ice Cream shop is only 10 minutes away and is often ranked as one of the top parlors on the East Coast. Walking distance from Four Seas is the 1865 Centerville Country Store filled with penny candy and gifts. Chatham, Falmouth and Provincetown are all known as great shopping locations. There are numerous biking trails on the Cape. The Hyannis Airport is also just a short drive from the property.
Barnstable Harbor is within walking distance and has access to whale watching, deep-sea fishing and restaurants. Walk or bike to Historic Barnstable Village for dining at one of the many restaurants, or shopping at the penny candy store, ice cream shop, and antique stores.
