Buzzards Bay House Rental Photos and Description

3.5 bedrooms, 2 baths , sleeps 9

This renovated Cape style home is just a block from the lovely Point Independence Beach, a quiet sandy beach. Families love Point Independence because the water is calm and quiet, perfect for children to swim and play in.

When you're not at the beach, there's plenty else to do. You're just a short walk to Onset Village with weekly summer band shell movies and music. You can also walk to golfing, fishing, kayaking, boating, and great restaurants. Or, you can just relax on the porch and enjoy the salty breezes coming up from the bay.

During the fall and spring seasons, Onset makes a perfect weekend getaway spot. Just an hour from downtown Boston, you can get out of work and be walking on the beach before dinner.

The cottage has a wide open layout with two floors - each floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom, making it a perfect rental for two families.

Clean and charming!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to cape cod every summer for years. This year we chose this cottage on onset beach to try something new. We absolutely loved this house. The cottage was so clean and had plenty of room for our family. We had three kids and threes adults. But also had more family come to visit and still plenty of room. The porch was awesome to sit on and relax every day. The pantry was well stocked. And the kitchen had plenty of dishes and utensils for all our needs. Again the house was so clean and comfortable. And the beach was a block away! On top of that all the neighbors were so nice. The town even had a free Woodstock cover concert while we were there. It was awesome. Rent this house!!

Very nice property

  • 5 of 5

The house was immaculate on arrival and the location is beautiful, it's a large house with plenty of room for family and with lots of activities near by (not to mention the beach) there was never a dull moment. 10/10 would stay here again.

Perfect house for our family beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was ideal for our family getaway and it was exactly what we had hoped for. The house itself was lovely, very clean and well-maintained. It slept nine of us comfortably. It was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. The dining table had table leaves so you could opt for a smaller table or a larger one and when extended, it fit nine of us easily. The location was perfect for going to the beach and walks either on the beach or around town. I would definitely recommend this rental!

Comfortable and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was perfect for the 9 of us-2 families and grandparents over a long weekend celebrating Mass Maritime graduation. Enough room to spread out, a nice yard for corn hole game and grilling, also a nice porch. We brought a card table with us to extend the dining room table so we could all fit. The house is very clean and well appointed as far as cleaning supplies, hand soap and paper products, and everything you would need in the kitchen, including a drip coffee maker and a keurig machine. No musty smell as I have found in other seaside locations. We walked into town and around the neighborhood each night, and the Catholic Church is right across the street. Everyone-my elderly parents to my 9 yr old nephew -had a great time. And yes Marlissa provided good customer service! Thank you!

Perfect cottage

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house as a quiet/family auxiliary house for a large reunion of old friends. The house was lovely: beautiful historic construction inside and out, comfortable furniture, lots of sleeping options including multiple private rooms, and rocking chairs on the front porch. It was perfect for our purposes and I can see how so many other people have loved it for their own vacations, too. The beach and marina and village are all only a short walk from the house and all are picturesque as well. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to anyone.

Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a Beautiful area this Cottage is in. We were down the area for a Wedding, which turned out to be in walking distance. Also The Beach/Fishing were within walking distance, which the Men in our group Loved! The neighbors we very Friendly ( Michele) a year round resident came by and introduced herself.. Great Rental, very clean, well organized pantry, and enough dishes to feed our group.. Our Family from NY, were thrilled with the Cottage, and it has plenty of room. We will use this Rental again in the future!!
