Dennis Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 bath, sleeps 6, eat-in kitchen, deck, large living areas

This family beach house is one sand dune away from a semi-private beach on Nantucket Sound. Fall asleep to the soothing sounds of the ocean. Cottage has large front and side lawns great for football, croquet, wiffle ball and enjoying the day. Back deck overlooks Uncle Stephen's Pond, a small flower garden, an osprey nest and is ideal for a lazy summertime barbecue. Perfect, quiet vacation spot for families. Easy to leave everything on the beach and get a quick lunch or snack at home; no need to pack up the car for that hot trip to and from the public beach to jostle with the crowd for space. Outdoor hot and cold shower, gas grill, deck furniture and umbrella, 4 beach chairs.

Cottage Description: Comfortable family cottage with an eat-in kitchen that was just renovated in the spring of 2007. Fire-placed living room and additional large front room perfect for playing games and relaxing while watching the dune beach grasses blowing from the shore breezes. Great yard for family games of bocce, croquet, wiffle ball, kick ball, football and catch.

Semi-Private Beach: Walk over sand dune to beach on Nantucket Sound. Over 150 feet of waterfront shared with only 3 other homes. Softest sand you'll find anywhere on Cape Cod. Spend the day on the beach and bring a cooler or take a break from the sun and eat back at the cottage; no need to get in a car or put on sandals. Best place to take a peaceful, early morning or sunset walk on the beach or swim then walk back to rinse off in outdoor shower.

Central Location: If you want to leave the perfect setting of the cottage and beach, West Dennis is centrally located on the Cape to let you see all of the attractions the entire Cape has to offer. Hyannis is a 20-25 minute drive with great shopping and ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket as well as day fishing trips and pirate ship excursions for children. Provincetown and the Cape Cod National Seashore is in the other direction about 45 minutes away.

Family, private beach, whiffle ball and wildlife!

  • 5 of 5

Who wouldn't love that kind of vacation. A private beach, shared with 2 other ocean-front homes, fully-equipped home with an abundance of windows for cross ventilation, and the best yard for whiffle ball around. Throw in a backyard osprey nest complete with giant fledglings and this is one of the very best beach vacations available on cape cod. The beds are pretty comfortable in the front and rear bedrooms. If the bunk room had two twins instead of the somewhat cramped built-in bunks, and the outdoor shower were enclosed, this property would be rated BEYOND EXCELLENT! Particularly for this price. Things we loved: The front screen porch with always-cool breezes; the back deck with umbrella table; the summer cottage-y feel but with more comfort; the grassy front and side yards for games; the abundance of parking, even for a boat (not to mention the proximity to public boating ramps on the Bass River); the excellent water pressure for showering; and as always that BEACH. All in all, we'd return in a heart-beat!

A perfect beach house!!

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday home was all we hoped it would be! The owner was very friendly and so easy to deal with. The house was exactly like the pictures, and the location is IDEAL – just one sand dune away from the semi-private beach. It was actually better than being right on the beach because there is more privacy. And you can still hear the sound of the waves! Much of the time we had the beach to ourselves. There are beach chairs and water floaties that you can bring down for an even more perfect day at the beach! And afterwords, the great thing is the outdoor shower in the backyard where you can rinse off before going inside! The large back balcony with BBQ was great for eating out, and it is quite private. However, the large, newly updated kitchen is really nice and fully equipped for easy and enjoyable cooking. We would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants a perfect beach "home away from home". It was a week of paradise, which we hope to repeat! Thank you Kathy!
