About Elise Burden

I have been vacationing on this beach with my family since the 1950's.

It was my dream to one day own my own little slice of heaven for as long as I can remember. My husband Bill and I bought this cottage in the winter of 1999. We live close enough to maintain it and stay off season with family and friends. It is my hope that my 5 little grandchildren experience the ocean and all it's treasures like I did growing up.

Elise Burden purchased this cottage in 1999

Great Sea Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This great sea cottage is literally a sand dune from the water. Listening to the waves was wonderful! Morning walks on the beach and Afternoons on the deck were sublime! Loved our stay here!

Such a beautiful spot on the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our week at this cute cottage on the beach! This was our first time staying in Sandwich and it was a very convenient location. It was clean and a perfect size for me, my husband, and our 23 yr old daughter. Nothing better than hearing the waves while going to sleep and waking up to beautiful sunrises. We had a very hot week so didn't do much besides stay on the beach! Thankful for all the fans in the house, as we really needed them! My daughter liked that the downstairs bedroom was cooler. The only drawback was not having the outdoor shower enclosed and no toilet in the very small master bath upstairs. We only cooked dinner on the grill once and ate out the rest. Really loved the Italian food at Amari down on 6A, also enjoyed British Beer Company and Fathers, which were both close by. Ice cream at Twin Acres is a must, breakfast at Marshland and 6A Cafe were both great. Really enjoyed the scones and coffee at Beth's bakery & cafe in the downtown area!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We really don't consider the half bath on the third bedroom level a "master bath". Our cottage was built in 1950. Although completely updated we are under rigid restrictions from conservation and historical commissions that must approve changes. There are plenty of houses on the beach with all of the modern amenities for double and triple the rent that we get. What we do offer is unmatched access and views of the ocean, three comfortable bedrooms that can accomadate 6 adults, plenty of essentials to help you enjoy meals at the cottage and a large outside deck to sit and enjoy the sunsets. Close to perfect:).

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Best vacation week ever! This cottage is simple perfection - everything we could have asked for. Private beach is huge and peaceful. Cottage is clean, updated, and has an awesome layout. Woke to gorgeous sunrises, spent days on the beach and in the water, went walking and looking for shells at low tide. Grilled up some dinner on the deck each evening, and then enjoyed sunsets and fires on the beach - simply magical. By day 2, my 2 teenagers were asking if we could rent it again next summer (can't wait!). Perfect location, amazing cottage, super nice owners... so lucky we found it!! Thank you for sharing your place with us, Elise & Bill! We will be back next year for sure!

A dream cottage by the sea... loved it!!!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage with its amazing location right on the beach was just what we needed after a week of sightseeing in Philly and New York and what I had always dreamed of. Enjoying my morning coffee gazing at the sea was the perfect start to the day. The house was lovely and very comfortable and we appreciated all the little bits and bobs (olive oil, soap powder etc) that make staying in a rented house so much easier... Bill and Elise have thought of everything, thank you. We relaxed on the beautiful deserted sunny beach, cooked local lobster, played base ball on the beach, had BBQ's on the decking, camp fire on the beach at night in front of the house and went whale watching in Princeton Town.... awesome! We had a very special family time and didn't want to leave, thank you xx We hope to return one day in the spring... for a month or two!!

Beautiful beginning - Disappointing End

  • 2 of 5

The house is very charming and the sound of the waves almost constant - I really loved this house and my husband and I were thinking that we would love to come back. However, on Friday morning we woke to banging pipes and looking out towards the beach the neighboring renters (their cottage is 10' away) were putting up a 70' x 25' tent backed up to where the path from our rented cottage came out on the beach and porta potties were being placed on our side of the driveway 30 or so feet from the back deck. A wedding was planned for that weekend and Friday,

Saturday, and 1/2 of Sunday was a parade of deliveries or clean up. Up till this

point the owner's were great - I felt our complaint was minimized, we were never offered any compensation, and from what they told us. they knew on Monday and yet never informed us. There is more to this story but the gist is here and thus my

rating of 2 stars. Meg S.

Owner's Response: We have been renting our cottage for 13 years without ever having an event like this before on the beach. Unfortunately we did not find out about the neighbors plans until the day of check-in for our guests. Normally the beach is extremely quite and peaceful. We have many returning guests as a result of their positive experience. I am sorry that these guests did not have the best time as a result of conditions that were beyond our control.

We had a wonderful time in this place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband my 1year old son had a wonderful time in this cottage! The owners are the nicest people and were very helpful to us from the early beginning when we were booking it. The cottage itself is perfect. The location could not be better. I think, you cannot help but to fall in love with Sandwich. It is an incredibly charming village! The views of the sunset, the water, the peacefulness, close proximity to wonderful restaurants is what we wanted and got only more than we expected by staying in this house. Just amazing! Who would not love waking up to the sound of the waves? It was our first trip to the Cape and we felt that by staying in this cottage we were able to have a true Cape experience, with fires on the beach, grilling wonderful seafood and watching our little one play in the sandbar and in the little splash pool we bought and had on the deck. We could not get enough of the beautiful views from the bedroom, kitchen, the living room and deck. In fact after seeing and dining in other place in the Cape we just wanted to come back home and enjoy the view from our deck. We wished that we stayed longer. Thank you Elise for a wonderful time in your place. We hope to return.

Angie, Shannon and Marcel.
