Beautiful Oceanviews - Relax & unwind in our home, 4 Bed, 7 Bath (Sleeps 8-12)
We built a beautiful waterfront home on the Centerville River across from Craigville Beach. Every bedroom has hardwood floors, a nice soft bed and a private tile bath with granite vanity, access to a balcony and beautiful ocean and river views, perfect for a family get away or a family reunion. The top floor library and great room has a wide screen TV, gas fireplace and a wet bar with built-in bookshelves, library and more beach books and novels than you could read in a lifetime.
You can walk to Craigville Beach for a swim in the Nantucket Sound or stroll to the '4 Seas' and sample the world's best ice cream! You can fish in the Centerville River, gather wildflowers in the back yard or lounge in the sun on one of the private decks. There are lots of cozy places to curl up with a book if that is your goal. Or spend your day watching the ducks, geese and swans on the Centerville River from the window seat. After all, it's your vacation! Just relax and enjoy our Cape Cod home!
We have an Osprey family living with us - Our kids named them "Brad and Loretta". You'll enjoy their acrobatics every day as you watch from the deck!
Other Amenities: Spectacular views from every room, quiet and secure yet close to the beach and 4 seas ice cream! Minutes to great shopping in Hyannis, Osterville or Mashpee Commons.

About David Drake
Even though our lives have taken us off Cape we get back as often as we can. I love working on the house. I designed the house from the foundation up and I built most everything you see myself or with the help of some very talented local friends and craftsmen. The bookshelves, decks and built-ins are all by hand. Relaxing to me is adding something hand made to the house while my family reads and relaxes or plays on the deck.
David Drake purchased this Villa in 2008
Why David Drake chose Centerville
I grew up here on Cape Cod and building this home was a twelve year project. But we are willing to bet you'll agree, it was well worth the effort! The waters of Nantucket Sound and Craigville Beach have always had magical healing powers for me and my family. The smell of the salt air and hearing the sound of the waves at the beach as you drop off to sleep... Well it doesn't get much better than that!
What makes this Villa unique
Peace and quiet but close to everything! Get outside and get into nature! Or just sink back and relax in a soft chair on one of the decks with your morning coffee and watch the antics of geese, ducks, swans and check up on our Osprey family (Brad and Loretta) as they raise their family throughout the spring and summer! The show never stops on the Centerville River!

Perfect Cape Cod Vacation
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home! The property is perfect for large families. We had 6 adults and two small children. My granddaughter had the time of her life on the beach, which is within a two minute walk. The house sits within a virtual nature preserve, with Heron and Ospreys right outside the windows. The home itself was impeccable, wonderful kitchen, 5 beautiful bedrooms all with private baths. We couldn't have been happier with everything about our stay. Our thanks to the Drake family for the opportunity to spend the week in their perfect Cape Cod property.
And you guys are welcome back anytime you like! Thanks for taking such good care of our home. We are glad you felt the magic!
