West Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

- 3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 6-7

This is the bright family retreat that you have been looking for and just steps from Nantucket Sound, featuring a basement renovation with family room and full bath. Just a short walk of 50 steps takes you to the private association beach pathway, and 125 steps brings you to the popular public beach (offering amazing tidal pools for small children, a great snack shack, beach store and water sport rentals). Why rush in the morning, pay to park at the beach and lug all the gear, when you can have the freedom to walk back and forth to the beach throughout the day?

Enjoy barbecuing on the 400sf back deck after you rinse the saltwater off in the outdoor shower. This charming, well-maintained beach retreat has some water views from the second floor. Well-equipped, family-friendly and eager to host a memorable and relaxing vacation.

On Chatham - from the Boston Globe, 6/4/08: Like many Colonial-era coastal towns, Chatham has evolved with the tides of commerce. Since William Nickerson bought 4 square miles of land in 1656, the town has relied, in turn, on farming, maritime trade, fishing, and tourism, and its success in retaining links to its past earned it recognition in 2007 from the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Visitors come here for the simple, old-fashioned pleasures the town affords: Friday night band concerts on the green, college summer league baseball, offloading of the day's catch at the fish pier. The waters off Chatham were the site of many shipwrecks in the 19th century. Some of those wrecks were caused by Chatham's mooncussers, men who waved lanterns on murky nights in an effort to disorient sailors into grounding their ships so they could loot the cargo. Perhaps a bit of that rogue spirit lives on in a popular bumper sticker spotted around town: 'Chatham, Mass.: A quaint little drinking village with a fishing problem.'

On Buck's Creek - from the Boston Globe, 9/1/08: 'It's Buck's Creek that makes Chatham's south-side waterfront so special. The waterway separates the popular Ridgevale and Harding's beaches and creates a couple of great neighborhoods on its elevated banks, where kids can grab a boogie board, jog down small backyards hills, and be at either beach in a matter of minutes.'

NOTE -- our home is a part of the Buck's Creek Association.

We haven't even left yet and I couldn't wait to write a review. What a gem in the sand. This house is the perfect vacation house. Has EVERYTHING you and your family could need or want. A short walk to the beach. (Literally 3 minutes!) 5 minutes to downtown Chatham. Nice quiet neighborhood. We highly recommend this property. We WILL be back!

My family and I enjoyed our vacation in September of 2007 greatly. This was largely due to the fantastic stay as Si Como No. It had everything we were looking for with approximity to the beach, downtown Chatham, Marion's Pies and relaxation. Everything we needed was at our fingertips including items that we had forgot to pack. Thanks to Amy and her family because they thought of everything that a vacationer would want or need to have. I will definitely return to the slice of heaven at Si Como No.

Chatham is located at the 'elbow' of Cape Cod and is surrounded by water on three sides. It is a wonderful, quaint town that offers everything you want and need for a great vacation. The beaches are beautiful and plentiful, and the village is filled with unique shops and restaurants. Families enjoy attending the Chatham A's baseball games under the lights, Friday night Town Band concerts, playing at the amazing town playground and riding bikes along the unique Cape Cod Rail Trail. Take advantage of the excursions to Monomoy Island to visit the seals, or join a charter fishing or whale-watching trip. Golfers will love the Captain's Course, a public championship course just a few miles away. Day trips to P-town, Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket are easy. Morning beach yoga at the Chatham Lighthouse is a personal favorite. Of course, no vacation is complete without a lobster roll and some clam chowder (we recommend the infamous local tavern, the Chatham Squire). Please join us!

Other Activities: Kayaking, seal watches, guided nature hikes

Golf: Ocean Edge Resort in Brewster

Captain's Course in Brewster/Harwich

We have three boys ages 8, 10 and 11, and stocked and decorated the home accordingly. The house offers one pack-n-play, a highchair, a basketball hoop, balls, beach toys and more. This house is meant for kids! There is one air conditioning unit located in the family room of the renovated basement. The rest of the house offers fans at each bed. Note: Our Jeep Wrangler is stored in the second driveway.
