About the property

1BR/1BA/Sleeps 2

Walk to beautiful Skaket Beach from this comfortable, cozy apartment on the side of a lovely home. It is located in a family neighborhood down a dirt road. There is a private entrance, deck and side yard.The apartment has one bedroom with a full bath and a living room / kitchen area. The beach is just a quick walk (2/10's mile away). It's a great beach with a snack bar (in season) and ''real bathrooms', not portables. Enjoy the ever changing tides of Cape Cod Bay and don't forget to catch the incredible sunsets. You can also walk to the Captain Linnell House for dinner. Voted most romantic on the Cape by Cape Cod Life for many years. It's a great place to bring your bikes to, with the Cape Cod bike trail about a mile away or you can rent them. Everything else is conveniently located, including Orleans town center, shops, restaurants, Nauset Beach and Rock Harbor for your fishing excursions.

Why Karen chose Orleans

Great alternative to motel/hotel rental for a couple. The closest motel to Skaket Beach is approximately 1.5 miles away. We are walking distance (2/10th) of a mile from the beach. We are less expensive than a motel and you have a kitchen, gas grill and private deck. The apartment comes with everything you need, except linens and towels.

It is a very comfortable, clean apartment that is located on a dirt road shared by only 6 other houses.

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

This apt. was perfect!!! Clean, cozy, quiet, centrally located and completely appointed with everything you could need for a relaxing visit (but do remember your linens.) Karen and Mike were delightful and helpful, but also respected my privacy. All this plus the most beautiful sunset I've ever seen ... less than 1/8 mile away at Skaket Beach. Who could ask for more? Would love to get back someday. Thanks Karen and Mike.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

This little apartment is everything the description says it is. We began to relax as soon as we arrived. The place is clean and private, with everything you could possible want in the kitchen. The back yard has a marsh so there are lots of birds. We made it to Skaket Beach for the sunset a few times. Beautiful. Excellent location for the Cape because it is in the middle so you can venture North or South. Mike and Karen are super nice and very helpful with anything you might need. Do remember to bring all of your linens, including rug for bathroom and kitchen towels. Thanks for a wonderful stay, hope to be back!

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from our 6th year at this rental. Its the perfect place for two, short walk to Skaket Beach, updated furnishings, clean and comfortable. There are lots of restaurants and other things to do close by. We will rent again.

Perfect and Charming Rental for Two

  • 5 of 5

This is definitely the best unit we have rented on the Cape thus far. It's the perfect location with just minutes of a walk to the beach and also very short drives to many of the other great beaches on the Cape. The unit is very clean and quaint. The owners were also very pleasant. This will be our first choice of rentals when we return!!
