About Gina Prine

I have always spent my summers on old cape cod. It was my dream to be able to come back with this cute property located in Osterville. My parents are retired and live on the next street. It is so great to get all the family together.

Gina Prine purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Gina Prine chose Barnstable

This is a very quite street located just .9 mies from the loved Dowses Beach, and a short stroll to the quaint upscale village shopping. We hope to expand the property someday. It is such a large inviting lot. Located at the end of the street.

What makes this cottage unique

We love the large yard and 2 sitting rooms. Plenty of space to let everyone stretch out. This is not your typical rental. We keep it clean and well maintained. It is my get away too!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I was surprised how close the home is to the quaint village of Osterville a short 10 minute walk!

Perfect location in a beautiful town!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 had a great time staying in this property. It was just what we needed for our week in Osterville. The location was perfect for walking into town and a short drive/bike to the beach. Accommodations were comfortable and there was everything we needed here. Sad to leave after such a great week but hope to return in the future!

Cozy cottage near the beach

  • 4 of 5

This is a cute cottage about 1.5 miles from the beach on a quiet street the kids enjoyed riding their bikes on. It was walkable/ridable to town It included pretty much everything we needed in the kitchen. It had a beach pass for parking. It also had some board games and books that the kids really enjoyed playing with and reading. There were also some beach toys and outdoor games to entertain us as well. It could have been a bit cleaner as there were a few cobwebs around but overall we enjoyed our stay and would return.

good deal in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week during the summer. The location was great and the house was quite nice. We could have used a few more lights but otherwise it was fully furnished. The house is great for two, for four it would be a bit cramped.

We would definitely stay there agian.

Comfortable, quiet, & quaint

  • 4 of 5

This was a lovely place to hang my coat while staying here for a few days this Spring. After working long days, it was nice to come back here and have the town be close enough for a quick nice dinner and my son enjoyed the beach and stroller rides through the neighborhood. Would stay here again.

Quiet Street, Clean Home

  • 5 of 5

I loved the quiet street, it felt very safe for my kids. The backyard is huge and is nicely shaded in afternoon. The home was nicely decorated and clean (a huge bonus since I hate renting) The kitchen had everything we needed. House seemed just the right size for a family of 4. I didn't realize how close we were to the village, a quick 10 minute walk. Osterville feels very safe to me.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this sweet little house on a quick trip to the Cape last fall. It's tidy, has a beautiful and tranquil yard and the owner's mom even brought us a bouquet of hydrangeas to brighten our table. This home is super close to the shops and library in Osterville and and easy ride (car or bike) to Dowses beach. We loved the neighborhood so much, we purchased a home around the corner!!
