About Janice Schade

Minnesota family that LOVES the sun and sand of the Cape! Our kids have grown up spending the summers boogie boarding and making memories with family and friends that will last a lifetime!

Janice Schade purchased this house in 1987

Why Janice Schade chose West Hyannisport

The ocean views are amazing. Sitting on the deck or plunked in a beach chair in the warm waters of Nantucket sound with a book in my hand is as close to paradise as i've found!

What makes this house unique

Most of our rentals are repeat clients that have been coming for 22 years STRAIGHT.....that says it all! Close to everything in town-shopping, ferries, cape cod rail, bike trails, etc. yet feel secluded right on the water, cannot beat the location! folks staying in other towns on the cape always come to Hyannis, why not already be where it's at?

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our family has enjoyed awesome vacations for 14 years running. thank you for the memories

Great Family Vacation Home with Incredible Views

  • 5 of 5

What a great family vacation home!! We rented this home to be close to relatives. Our group included my husband & I, 2 grown sons, their wives & 1 grandchild. We had more room than needed. Every family unit had its own sleeping accomodations and bath as there are 2 rooms, one with a Queen and the other twin beds, that share the hall bath and each of the other 2 rooms had king beds and private baths. 3 of the 4 bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open right onto the huge back deck. The end bedroom even has its own entrance from the front, although to get to the rest of the house you either need to walk through the other king bedroom or go out your sliding door and walk on the deck to the slider by the family room. No big deal since the view is worth it. The home is well appointed with many extra conveniences from the fully equipped kitchen to beach towels, toys, floats, a cooler and even an inflatable boat raft. The location, though, is the frosting on the cake. Besides being close to the beach, the cove provides for tons of water activities and the views from the house in every direction are absolutely breath taking. My husband could sit out there on the deck and read ALL day long although he didn't. The rest of us enjoyed breakfast and spectacular sunsets out on the deck. We will certainly be back. Thanks to the Schades for sharing their happy place with us!!

Beautiful house with breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this very spacious house with gorgeous views. We stayed 5 adults this past July 2017 and had a wonderful family vacation. At low tide you can walk across the shallow water of the outlet and experience your own private beach. It felt like a tropical island. The house itself was very comfortable and spacious. I didn't love having to walk the plank, to the Master bedroom, but overall we did enjoy the house and the furnishings were also nice. The deck is amazing and has great views! The property is also very conveniently located with a short drive to Craigsville beach. We will definitely book this property again!

Beautiful, clean home - great location!

  • 5 of 5

Windsong is a beautiful, well maintained home that was perfect for our family. The home was clean and the bedrooms were all large enough for 2 families to spread out comfortably. Our kids enjoyed the pool table and ping pong table and it was great for them to have their own "space" in the basement (walk out, mostly finished). The beach in the backyard was perfect for exploring and catching crabs - we were also able to get across the inlet to the ocean during low tide. There is also a perfect, white sand public beach about 1 mile down the road (clean rest rooms and also a food stand right across the road). We were a 5 minute drive from Main St and Ocean St in Hyannis. We had a great vacation - owner was very responsive and easy to reach prior to and during our vacation. We hope to return to Windsong sometime soon!

Absolutely FABULOUS time at this property!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved staying at this property!!! With the breathtaking sunsets, gorgeous views, and the quiet street/beach area, relaxation was the order of each day. (Although, Downtown is not far away, so we also found plenty to do when we were ready to eat, shop, or take in activities.) The home is updated with a finished lower level walk-out inclusive of pool table and large t.v. with pit group - so our family was happy and entertained. There was plenty of room in each of the bedrooms to spread out with our bags too. Each of our family members/couples had their own bedroom, so privacy was not a problem either. There are great views from every room in the house as well as from the 40 ft. deck (approx.) on the back (facing west) of the house!! We had the most enjoyable conversations watching the sunsets from the deck. Stunning, absolutely stunning! This home is CLEAN, well-maintained, updated with beautiful furnishings, yet comfortable enough to settle in and feel "at home". We LOVED OUR TIME THERE! We will plan a return trip for sure! My Foodie Hint for visitors: Try the Cheese Gnocchi at Colombo's on Main Street if you get a chance - FABULOUS! Thanks for sharing your home with us! Kurt and Jana

AWESOME!! Great for our large family!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderful to stay in with my large family. There were 11 of us in this home and we all slept comfortably. The views from their porch were spectacular. You can see the the ocean from every room in the house. They have a large yard which was great for the kids to play in. This house is very accessible to many beaches and popular locations such as Main St Hyannis and the Hyannis Mall. We even visited the private beach about 20 steps from the driveway. The ocean water was warm and calm in the bay, but at low tide we crossed the channel to the open ocean and practically had our own private beach! The amenities at this location were very comfortable. My family was raving about the comfort of the beds and the beautiful views from the bedrooms. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook for 11. Overall my stay at Windsong was wonderful and I highly recommend it! Janice was great to rent from and was very nice and accommodating.

Nestled between beautiful Craigville Beach and Hyannis harbor, this property is one of a kind. Surrounded by water on three sides with a private association beach in your back yard. Located in the highly sought after 'avenues' of West Hyannisport, perfect for an evening stroll or bike ride. Visit Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket using the ferry located in Hyannis, just minutes away. Or, take a day trip to historical Plymouth Plantation, go deep sea fishing or whale watching. Then again, once you move in, you may never leave the deck. Between the beach, the sun and the ocean breezes at 'Windsong''s all you really need!
