East Sandwich Cottage Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 5

This cottage is located just a short 3 minute walk from a private association beach in the Sandy Neck Beach area of East Sandwich. Enjoy sandbars and miles of beautiful, almost desolate, sandy coast and a quiet neighborhood. The cottage features a knotty pine interior, open living room/kitchen floor plan, three bedrooms, a screened in porch, and a deck.

This cottage has been in my family for forty years and I have many warm sunny memories of reading in the hammock, making sandcastles on the sandbars at low tide, grilling steaks on the grill in the back yard under the shade of the Banyan tree-ish Maple, afternoon naps on the screened in porch, and simply being with my family in our warm, quiet, getaway.

Enjoy croquet, the grill, deck, outdoor shower, and the hammock in the back yard.

Gas range, toaster oven, coffeemaker, pots, pans and all necessary cooking supplies.

cable TV,

Full size bed, and 3 singles,

Gas grill, patio table with umbrella, extra outdoor shower, hammock and croquet set. Please note, no sheets or linens provided.

Way too lived in for us

  • 1 of 5

Cottage is in a lovely neighborhood, very close to the beach. It’s got great potential and with some tender loving care could be adorable. As it stands now, it’s very “lived in”.

The porch screens have major holes in them. The bathroom is small, tiles are cracked and the shower needs to be majorly scrubbed or better yet, replaced. And don’t open the medicine cabinet! It’s filled with someone’s stuff, which was typical throughout the cottage. Ditto for underneath the beds, in the corners and the closets.

Even with all that, we loved our time at the Cape and look forward to coming back again, just somewhere that’s had a whole lot more TLC!

Perfect for Low-Key Family

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect house for our family (2 adults, 2 elementary-aged kids, 1 basset hound) -- the hammock, the climbing tree, the croquet set, the screened porch, the deck, the low-key/lived-in vibe were exactly what we were looking for. Pretty plantings and flowers in pots and catbirds and occasional bunnies were a lovely extra!

A couple of cautions. First, the beach is pretty rocky. I imagine it changes from year to year based on how churned up the beach gets over the winter, but water shoes are a good idea -- we ordered some from Amazon after the first day. Second, if you're the kind of person who'll be bothered by stains on the upholstery and missing tiles and general scruffiness, you're not going to be comfortable here. (On the other hand, if you're more comfortable in a place where things aren't so pristine that you're paranoid about putting your feet up, then this is a terrific house for you, as it was for us!)

Sandwich Downs (the neighborhood) was quiet and friendly -- we made friends with a couple of other families on the beach with kids our kids' ages. There were no party houses making noise late at night, and the general vibe was low-key and family-friendly. There's a terrific book store right down 6A, and also a gorgeous yarn store. We found plenty of crabs and even a few sea stars, and we got to see an osprey dive and catch a fish!

Cozy, comfortable, private getaway near the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This quaint, clean cottage was just right for my family of four plus my mother-in-law. It is a short walk to a private beach with a sandbar. After spending the day at the uncrowded beach, you can shower the sand off in the outdoor shower behind the house. There is also a regular bathroom with shower indoors. You can relax on the back deck or in the hammock in the private back yard. There is even a screened porch for buggy nights. The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking including a lobster pot and accessories.

Fans and a window air conditioner are available to cool you off when the weather gets muggy. The cottage has brochures of local attractions and restaurants to help you get familiar with the area. Cable TV, but no internet on the premises. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We truly enjoyed our stay here.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review! We try our best to make the cottage a comfortable home away from home for all of our vacationers, and will have wi-fi available this season (although isn't it better to turn the noise of the world off for a little while?) It is so very nice when we know that people have enjoyed our house, Thank you.
