Wareham House Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy Cap Code but avoid traffic, swim in warm ocean water, access Boston in 1h

Please note that prices shown are inclusive of all fees (cleaning fee) and taxes.

No pets

Great 4 BR, 2-bath oceanfront home in Wareham, Mass, close to the charming village of Onset.

Sleeps 8 - ideal for 2 families with children (one family on each floor)

The house faces South on a private cove on Buzzards bay, with a large beautiful lawn and its own floating dock and access to water. It is very quiet and private, with only one neighbor. The other side is conservation land with a little private beach.

The centerpiece of the house is a wrap around second floor deck, with stairs to the lawn, which affords water views and breezes. The living room and DR, kitchen and Master BR all open up to the 2nd floor deck, with views of the cove and bay. A second bedroom and 1 full bathroom are on that floor. 2 more bedrooms and a second full bathroom are on the first floor of the house, which opens to the lawn.

This house is really about enjoying outdoors with your family.

Like many MA beach houses, please note the house has no A/C; the ocean breeze kicks in most afternoon.

1. Activities on site:

Rent kayaks in a local store or bring your boat; go fishing or shell fishing (permit), play in our private sand box, or on the beach, go biking on conservation land.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was exactly what we were looking for and we had a wonderfully relaxing time.

Being on the water and the space of the home and location was great....the layout of the house was fantastic...a family to each floor.....and it was very spacious with plenty of room to spread area...dining...deck...dock...we really had a great time. It was conveniently located to shopping...dining...etc. and it certainly met our expectations in terms of cleanliness.

We really enjoyed ourselves and thanks for meeting our expectations and allowing us to stay in your home!

Peace and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

Lovely home with great views and access to water. Perfect for kayaking and paddle boarding. The streets where all culdesacks so great bike riding with little ones. Lots of bird life and plenty of crabs. Only downside was if the wind stops the mosquitos are very present and if hot (again no breeze ) house can get warm as there is no A/C. Would readily return

What a location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed being right on the water's edge and went kayaking daily (Nemasket Kayak delivered a couple double kayaks at no extra charge). Great birding, for those so inclined. This is an excellent location for exploring the Buzzards Bay/Cape Cod Canal area (Scusset Beach State Park and the canal bike path standout), and offers easy access the Cape. Our youngest appreciated the quiet neighborhood streets for bike riding, the proximity of Water Whiz water park, and minigolf as well. The home is in excellent condition and is well-equipped. The caretaker, who lives next door, is very pleasant and readily available. As the owners, who are very easy to work with, indicate, there is no A/C in the house, and we definitely needed the fans we brought from home on a couple hot, sticky nights to augment the breeze off the bay.

Scenic and private

  • 4 of 5

This property is absolutely private and amazing! The wildlife was more abundant than I could have ever imagined. Everything from Osprey to loons and herons! The use of the private dock was something we thoroughly enjoyed. We did a lot of fishing and even catching some blue crabs for dinner.

Comfortable and well appointed home with a view

  • 5 of 5

The home was spacious and well appointed. It had a great view and a pier on Buzzards Bay that was great for exploring for clams, oysters, and local favorites. The home was very clean and located on a quite cul de sac. The property manager was helpful and very sweet. I recommend this home for a vacation exploring the Cape. We enjoyed quite privacy and nearby awesome restaurants and shopping.
