About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 6, absolute maximum

This Classic Cape Cod cottage is situated right on your own private beach on Nantucket Sound, West Dennis, Cape Cod, Massachusetts. This is a single family home. Not a condo. The most beautiful location along the entire south coast, with Ospreys nesting on a saltwater pond to the north of the home. Immaculately clean, cozy and comfortable, it is ideal for the discriminating renter. Not your usual Cape rental! Your sun-lit deck, family sunroom and kitchen all provide a direct ocean view while the living room and three bedrooms offer a feeling of coziness. The Living Room has a fireplace for extra warmth during the shoulder season and 32' flat screen HDTV and WiFi. A manicured lawn, one of the few on the entire Nantucket Sound coastline prevents tracking of sand, while the rental includes an outside shower, ocean kayak, grill, a dishwasher, washer and dryer combination and A/C. The cottage is also steps away from a salt-water pond, where shore birds, ducks and nesting ospreys can be seen. LINENS ARE NOT PROVIDED to facilitate shorter turnover. Two Full beds and a double Trundle bed. i,e, two singles. Absolutely smoke-free and we are sorry that no pets can be allowed. SIX persons maximum.

Further details: Not your customary Cape rental. Beautifully appointed in Cape Cod style, offering a warm, homey feel. We are located directly on the beach, with an overlooking deck for relaxing entertainment or easy living for any age. SORRY BUT WE DO NOT RENT TO UNACCOMPANIED HIGH SCHOOL OR COLLEGE STUDENTS.

Great location, attentive owners

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five vacationed here in July. We have 3 children ages 5-10 and the location was excellent. The beach was steps away and the area was clean, quiet and safe. The house in person looks just like the pictures and it has a warm, cozy cottage feel with all the family necessities. The AC was great on hot, humid nights and the laundry was a great benefit. The outdoor shower was a convenient treat as well.

The house sits on a quiet cul de sac and although the dirt road is a bit rough, it guaranteed no cars would speed by when kids were playing outside by the swing set.

The owners were attentive and promptly answered questions and corresponded with us professionally.

As for location, I can't say enough. To be able to drink coffee in pajamas while kids play in the sand is priceless. Snack, potty trips, and breaks from the sun were so easy -no need to pack for a day at the beach because literally, you are AT the beach.

Great family spot that our family would love to come back to!
