About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, laundry room , sunroom, sleeps 8

Enjoy your vacation on this quiet private way, where you can launch kayaks and go exploring or use your own small boat . Washburn Island, conservation land, is directly across from the Island and is well worth checking out, as are all the inlets and rivers in the bay. There is Little River Boat Yard on the island, for those that need boat services. Our small bay beach is excellent for relaxing , boat and bird watching, and our ospreys put on quite a show. Try the quohogging and clamming, we supply the rakes and baskets. Go dig up your dinner and make some delicious chowder or stuffed quohogs.

South Cape beach is a short drive away and can be accessed using back roads and little traffic. Spend the day there swimming, relaxing and walking the long beach. This is a wonderfully roomy house with lots of space. The long back deck seems to be the place everyone congregates for relaxing, grilling, eating and fun. The large enclosed outdoor shower is great after a day of play.

There are many excellent golf courses within minutes of the island. We have par 3's, executive and regulation courses. There is even miniature golf at the Popponesset Market Place, with it's small shops and restaurants.

Mashpee Commons is a 5 minute drive from the island. It contains many well known stores such as Talbots, Appleseeds, Coldwater Creek, and Pottery Barn, to name a few and many unique gift and clothing stores. There are also some excellent restaurants, a movie theater and grocery stores. Downtown Falmouth has many small shops including the well known Christmas Tree Shop, not to be missed ! A day trip to Martha's Vineyard is easy to access by the ferries that run from Falmouth and Woods Hole.

Seconsett Island is easily accessible to either Falmouth or Mashpee, but private enough to still remain undiscovered by many.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Jeanne's home was perfect and the listing description exceeded our expectations. We were able to have our dogs with us and the deck and fenced yard was where they spent most of their time. The beach was a short walk where we enjoyed taking our young nieces to play in the sand. The house provided a gathering place for us to have a mini reunion of a few relatives who had gathered to attend a memorial service. We loved Cookes restaurant and the proximity of Roche Brothers market. Hyannis was a short drive where we enjoyed the best lobster roll at the marina there. On our next visit to the cape, we hope to stay here again. We felt as if we were home. Many thanks Jeanne for making us feel so welcome.

Spacious Home on Quiet Seconsett Island, Cape Cod
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Great Cape Location and Home

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a month here and enjoyed every day. The home was very well equipped, comfortable and large enough to easily accommodate our two children, their spouses and three grandchildren. after they left the two os us felt quite comfortable. The location is excellent. Never having been to this part of the Cape, we were very pleasantly surprised. The island is great. our dog Chester also gave it 5 stars. He enjoyed the back yard. swimming in the bay beach, and meeting just about everyone on the island. Jeanne was also very helpful and accommodating.

Owner's Response: I so enjoyed having our guests visit this quiet island which is close to all the amenities that one needs. I loved that the family made use of our bay's beautiful sunsets, little beach, and tried their hand at kayaking, paddle boarding, and even quohogging. Their dog was very appreciative too, as he got to swim in the bay and had the run of the closed in backyard.

A Perfect Home for a Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My college roommates and I just returned from our stay at this wonderful home on Seconsett Island in Mashpee. We were in town for a wedding at the Popponesset Inn, and this was perfectly located to get to and from the wedding. This home was absolutely perfect for a group of our size, and we also noted that it would be a great place to bring a family due to the multiple large areas of living and gathering space. The big backyard is also a nice place to gather, relax, BBQ, and play in the yard. This home is conveniently located with restaurants and shopping close by at Mashpee Commons. The home is in a very peaceful location, with beauty all around. The landlord, Jeanne, is wonderful. She is very friendly and conveniently, she lives across the street. She is a great resource for what to do in the area. The house was very clean and full of all cooking/cleaning supplies that might be needed. The beds are comfortable too! I highly recommend this home to any group of friends or families looking for a place to stay on Cape Cod.

Quiet, relaxing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a very relaxing stay at this spacious home. The home owner, who lives across the street, has thought of everything! There was an assortment of towels, linens, kitchen cooking supplies, pots, pans, and even a crockpot! The next door neighbor was also very welcoming and helpful. This home is in a private location with access to little water inlets all around it. We loved using the kayaks and exploring with them. The fenced in yard is fantastic for badminton or outdoor games and would be perfect for a larger dog (our little one was able to get under the fence!). Although the weather did not cooperate during our stay, we still enjoyed daily jaunts to Falmouth (15 min. drive away) and Mashpee Commons. Old Silver Beach in Falmouth was one of our favorite destinations. We stayed with our two kids and grandparents and this home still felt spacious. All in all, if you are looking for a quiet, scenic location "away from it all", this house is a perfect choice.
