About the property

1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps 2

More beautiful and relaxing than staying at a motel. This is a lower level 600 sq ft efficiency in the lower walkout level of a private home overlooking a tidal marsh. There is a private entrance and patio with beautiful peaceful water and marsh views. This bright and tasteful, nautically decorated one bedroom apartment has a king size bed, full bath with shower. Bring your binoculars to view the abundant marsh wildlife, and bring your bikes for riding and picnicking along the Cape Cod canal.

This property is located within an easy walk (1/5 of a mile) to a bay-side ocean beach, the famous boardwalk, and historic downtown Sandwich. Sandwich has plenty of shopping, antique shops, museums, and many local restaurants (several within walking distance).

Beautiful location in Cozy House

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were lucky enough to find this place for the 4th, and we couldn't have picked a better spot. Nancy is incredibly caring and generous and we were in an ideal location. I couldn't believe the view looking out from the patio, and the walk to the beach was short. Sandwich is a beautiful little town and the whole experience was great! Would definitely do it again next year! Thanks Nancy!

Great views

  • 5 of 5

The views of the marsh are fantastic! The studio had all the comforts we needed. It was just a short walk to the nearest beach and within driving distance of everything we needed!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my daughter recently for Mother's Day weekend. It was a perfect get away and suited us very well. The location is great, the beach as well as some restaurants are in walking distance. We did not have very good weather so we didn't walk much, but it would have been doable had the weather been better. The advantage of a rental unit like this is that in bad weather you do have a nice place to hang out, eat, watch a movie or tv and just relax as opposed to a hotel where you would just be in a small bedroom. The owner was very friendly and helpful and gave us information when we first arrived. The king bed was very comfortable and the view is beautiful. We were very happy with our choice for our Mother/Daughter weekend.

Poor customer service

  • 1 of 5

We booked two nights (Sunday and Monday nights) for this studio but when we showed up at the door on Sunday morning Nancy told me she had someone stayed at her studio until tomorrow.

She said that she's sorry...and asked me what do I want her to do? She can't throw the people downstair out...It was her mistake by not keeping the schedule straight yet she asked me what to do? Nancy is a real estate agent, lives in Sandwich and confronted me (the renter from California) the question instead offered some help.

I sent the deposit as she told me way in advance and didn't expect this to happen since we've been travelling around the East Coast and have made all the plans.

She's extremely rude to me ( I don't like to give a bad review) she gave me my deposit back and slammed the door on me as if It was all my fault.

I understand we are all human and we make mistake but she needs to own it and don't blame someone else for your own mistake. And she caused us lots of inconvenience at the last minute try to find the place to stay.

She later realized it and had called to offer us if we can find somewhere else to stay for the night and we can stay at her place on Monday night for free, something she should offer right at the beginning instead of slam the door on me. Of course we don't want to go back there anymore or have anything to do with her.

Owner's Response: This woman really is over exaggerating. I was practically in tears I felt so bad. (The fact that I sell real estate has nothing to do with this mix up.). My husband was away most of the summer as he was getting treatment for a diagnosed illness and we were working together from a distance on the schedules. It is the first time in 8 years that we unfortunately made a mistake. I NEVER slammed the door in her face. I was trying to decide how I could make something up to her so I called her and offered her the free night if she could find a place for one night. She actually thanked me and said they had found something, but some people just like to try to destroy someone's reputation. Regards, Nancy Clsyton

Another Wonderful Stay in Sandwich

  • 5 of 5

This is the sixth year we have stayed at this place, and it was great, as always. The view of the marsh is constantly changing as the tides change. The description of the place is spot-on accurate. Dan and Nancy are the perfect hosts. Our favorite biking paths are along the Canal. Our favorite restaurant is Seafood Sam's.

Sorely Disappointed

  • 1 of 5

The unit was dirty when I arrived - it appeared not to have been cleaned between rentals. The bathroom sink was dirty, the refrigerator was dirty, the shower had black hair in it and the sheets had black hair all over them. The beach is also not 1/5 a mile away - I measured it - it's 4/10 of a mile. It is a very cute unit but I was insulted to think the owner thought it was OK to leave someone else's dirt behind for me to live in. I paid the owner directly - next time I would rent a unit where you pay VRBO or Homeaway directly so you have some recourse.

Owner's Response: It is too bad that this renter felt this way. The unit is cleaned the very same way that it is for all our renters. She never mentioned anything to me. I will stand on our 31 five star reviews and you can decide for yourself which is true. Regards, Nancy Clayton

Sandwich is the oldest town on Cape Cod. It is located on both sides of the Cape Cod Canal with the majority of its land mass on the southerly side. Sandwich beaches stretch for miles along Cape Cod Bay and provide a wonderful view on a clear day of the many vessels that pass through and near the Cape Cod Canal. Commercial fishermen and lobster men can be seen daily from the docks at the Sandwich Marina, the only harbor along the canal. Historic Sandwich Village which is a renowned tourist destination provides many glimpses into New England's rich colonial history. Visit the Hoxie House (the oldest house on Cape Cod), the Dexter Grist Mill, Heritage Plantation, the Thornton Burgess Museum, the Sandwich Glass Museum, and more. A jewel of this area is a seven mile barrier beach, Sandy Neck. If you are lucky enough to have a four wheel drive (with permit) you can drive out and enjoy the beautiful sand dunes.
