About the property

Great home - 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms plus heated outdoor shower, sleeps 10

Availability this summer! Beautiful salt-water-front cottage on Waquoit Bay in Mashpee, MA on Cape Cod. Located on Seconsett Island, a charming 'old Cape Cod' peninsula surrounded on 3 sides by salt water. The cottage has panoramic sunset views and looks out across Waquoit Bay at Martha's Vineyard and Washburn Island, an uninhabited wildlife preserve. Great spot for shellfish, birding, boating, walking, swimming, and quiet relaxation. Small private beach in front of the house on shallow gentle bay waterfront is perfect for kids.

The two-story Cape Cod style house has: 4 bedrooms (3 rooms sleep 2 people each in 1 queen-bed and 2 double-size pullout couches) and the 4th bedroom is very large with 4 twin beds -- perfect for kids or a family. Living room also has a queen-size futon. Two baths (1 with shower, 1 with tub) plus an enclosed outdoor shower (hot water) with a view of the bay. Large living room, dining room, completely equipped kitchen, and boat mooring.

Everything you wanted to know...: The kitchen is fully-equipped with dishes, glasses, pots/pans, appliances, coffee-maker, Cuisinart, and spices. Pillows and blankets are also provided. Renter needs to bring sheets and towels, although other arrangements can be made if requested several weeks in advance of visit.

I beg to differ.

We have been renting this cottage from Bob and Dianne for many years in a row now. It is a classic Cape Cod cottage, not fussy and comfortable. They have invested in new beds, new carpeting and updated the kitchen over the years. I would imagine that if it was damp, it could be due to the fact that the house is litterally right on the water, and it has been very rainy this spring.

The house is always well stocked and the views are really spectacular. We bring kayaks and paddleboards and barely leave the house when we are there. We kayak across the bay and spend the entire day on a secluded beach. No traffic, no crowds. In the evening we grill and eat on the deck, the sunsets are magical! If you are looking for a stuffy show home this is not the place for you. If you want to spend a week in a classic Cape Cod summer cottage lying in a hammock at sunset while the children play in the very large and private yard or enjoy kayaking in the safe and calm bay waters, this might be just right for is heaven for us.

You can relax and fully enjoy our waterfront amenities...or venture nearby to South Cape Beach (long, sandy beach with good surf), golf courses, Hyannis (shopping, Kennedy Compound, ferry to Nantucket), Falmouth (shopping, harbor, ferry to Martha's Vineyard), Woods Hole (quaint charm, oceanography museum, ferry to Martha's Vineyard), Sandwich (old-world style, glass museum, grist mill, scenic drive), and Heritage Plantation (antiques, gardens, antique cars).

Closer by there's movies and the Mashpee Commons shopping center, grocery stores, and a small marina on Seconsett Island. Or head further afield - about 1 hour away - to the outer Cape, where you'll find the breathtaking National Seashore, Truro, and Provincetown.

Other Activities: boating, kayaking, hiking Washburn Island
