This gem sits quietly among the pines on the edge of Drummer Cove with a large wraparound deck on which to sit and watch the tide come and go. If you prefer a bit more shelter, there is a large screened-in porch. With two large picture windows, the same marvelous view is visible from the living room! Should the weather turn cool, light a fire in the fireplace or curl up with a book in the glassed-in Florida room. A short walk takes you to the bay for a swim or to launch your kayak. Down the road is the Fox Island Conservation Area hiking trail, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail is about a mile away. Wellfleet is noted for its large harbor and marina -which offers deep sea fishing & sailboat rentals - white ocean beaches and clear kettle ponds, as well as a large collection of art galleries and fine restaurants.

We are retired school teachers who have been loving our time in this neighborhood since childhood.
Peter & Eleanor Santos purchased this House in 1991
What makes this House unique
Although there are many activities to engage in nearby, we often come, settle in and never leave the neighborhood until it's time to go home! It is a very restful area with nearby access to kayak and swim in the bay

Fabulous spot and wonderful owners!
My family goes to wellfleet for two weeks every year. We were looking for a water view this year and booked this rental, hoping the pictures would accurately reflect the view. As soon as we got there, we were amazed by the serenity, beauty and peaceful nature of this property. We watched the tide roll in and out and just loved the experience. The house itself was exactly as described and had everything we needed. The owners went above and beyond to answer any questions and to make suggestions to make our stay more enjoyable. We loved our experience and recommend this property tremdously!
We had a great time at this Wellfleet house. The views were beautiful even on the cloudy days. The location is a 5 minute walking distance to a small beach/cove. We didn't swim but took nice walks. The queen size bed is comfortable. The room with 3 twin beds worked well for our teenagers. The living room and kitchen are both a nice size.
One of the best outdoor showers we've had!!
Eleanor was amazing with communication. When I emailed her, I'd often hear back from her within hours.
A beautiful, quiet, serene setting overlooking Drummer Cove
We had a delightful visit to Wellfleet this June 2017 truly enhanced by our stay at the Santos' house. The house overlooks Drummer Cove in a quiet, tree-lined piece of heaven, and has all the amenities one could want for such a visit. The photos are completely accurate. A wide deck with an enclosed area, an outdoor shower in a wood stall, a wood paneled living room with comfortable furniture, books and TV, a large kitchen with plenty of pots, pans, dishes and the like, two bedrooms, a washing machine and dryer downstairs, and more. Eleanor Santos was extremely helpful in providing information on Wellfleet activities and maps and accompanying descriptions for local hikes were on a bookshelf in the living room. Only a short drive to the incredible ponds (Gull Pond and Great Pond) of Wellfleet as well as to ocean beaches and the magical White Cedar Swamp Trail. An easy drive to Provincetown as well. But waking up each morning and looking out the living room window toward Drummer Cove provided a feeling of peace and serenity not likely available in hectic P-town.
A Wonderful Spot, a Great Vacation
This home had everything our family was looking for--a great view and location, all the amenities, a large deck, plenty of room, big kitchen to prepare meals, etc. The location is also excellent. The hosts are very attentive and accommodating. It was well worth the 10-hour drive for us. A great Cape Cod vacation spot!
Pleasant Point Gem
Peaceful, quiet, serene piece of paradise big enough for the whole family.! Bay breezes waft through the pine canopy and part of the house is always shaded! Eleanor is fantastic with helpful hints & tips. Numerous amenities and near to beaches, nature preserves, national seashore, marina, seafood markets, shops, restaurants, and general store. We didn't want to leave this one-of-a-kind rental, truly outstanding, and worth treating yourself to for a fantastic Cape Cod Escape!!! JAG, Watseka, IL
Peace, Quiet & Beauty
If you want to "get away from it all" without traveling to Tahiti, this is your place. The location couldn't be more beautiful, and quiet, except for the local birds and occasional rustlings of wind through the trees. Although the Wellfleet Bay Nature Preserve is nearby, and worth a visit, you will feel as if you've already been there if you stay at this house. On the other hand, you are close to the bay and ocean beaches, and a 20-30 minute drive from all the action in Provincetown. I highly recommend this house.
This home on Drummer Cove, nestled in a pine grove, is in an area of South Wellfleet called Pleasant Point in Wellfleet Harbor. The Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary is nearby, and there are many species of birds present. The National Seashore, with its many trails, magnificent ocean beaches and pristine freshwater ponds are only minutes away. This quiet, private location, though handy to all recreational activities, including hiking, surfing, biking, swimming, or boating, is perfect for peaceful relaxation. A short drive will take you to the charming fishing village of Wellfleet with its many galleries, or Provincetown which is filled with 'Kodak moments.'
