Why Ginny chose Bourne

My husband and I had bought a summer cottage on Onset Island as newlyweds and fell in love with quaintness of Onset. Being on the island was magical but limited with the year round access.

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for small children. Water is close with no waves. Home is clean and maintained. This was our 7th year and we are looking forward to next year.

Manager is a phone call away. Seldom needed help but when called they responded promptly. Walking distance to most everything. Quiet neighborhood.

Quiet, private beach, killer views!

  • 5 of 5

Cared for rental property with attentive owners & management company. Walking distance to local restaurants & Onset Village. Short ride to Buzzard's Bay & more amenities. Go from screened porch to deck to the sand. No bridges or rotaries to navigate but they are near by if you desire to head in that direction. We're going back next year!

What a find!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough great things about our stay and experience with the owners! The home a beautiful contemporary in a location that couldn't be more perfect right on a private beach yet just a short walk to downtown Onset! Immaculately clean and maintained with every amenity one could need or want. We visited with our toddler twins for a week and enjoyed lots of time on the beach, especially renting paddle boards and using the kayaks, baby pool and beach toys provided with the rental. The home is also very well laid out with bedrooms a good distance from the living areas and the most comfortable beds we have ever encountered at a rental! We hope to return again!

Owner's Response: So glad that you enjoyed your family time! We enjoyed meeting you and your family, and seeing the twins brought us back to when ours were that age when we first bought the house...goes by fast! Hope that you all will return!!

Very comfortable home with a wonderful location.

Was everything that we were looking for and then some. Was a joy dealing with the owners and we felt welcomed from the very start. Spectacular views with a clean and comfortable setting. We definitely plan on staying here again.

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

The views are better than photos show, we were very pleased. Truly, 15 steps to the sand. The beach was quiet, we had it to ourselves the whole week. The bay is full of boats on moorings which we enjoyed watching, lots of wildlife ...and a constant breeze. The house itself is spacious, with excellent views from the main living space whether sitting on the couch, at the dining table or on the screen porch. The master bedroom has views as well. The house is dated, but clean. I certainly look forward to staying again! ....Onset, is a sleepy little town, not much going on, but the overall location is very convenient for day trips to Chatham, Hyannis, Provincetown, the Vineyard...and we even hit Newport Rhode Island. Overall an excellent experience! Thanks Ginny:).

Lovely place to relax at the beach

  • 5 of 5

My fiance and I had a wonderful stay at the Beach House and are very grateful Ginny and her family allowed us to stay at their house. The house has everything you need (and a little more) and we spend relaxing days on the patio. Onset is also a good starting point for daytrips all around the coast. It was a very quiet area (maybe because of the afterseason) with beautiful views.
