About Janice Molyneaux

When I was growing up, my family vacationed in Cape Cod every summer. I still have wonderful childhood memories of the fun times we had and wanted my children and grandchildren to have the same memories. Bella Mare is a very special place for all of us.

Janice Molyneaux purchased this house in 1996

Why Janice Molyneaux chose Cape Cod

We bought our beach house in 1996 and rebuilt in 2008 and appropriately named it Bella Mare! The house sits on top of a sand dune, and we knew instantly that we wanted to own this little piece of heaven. We fell in love with the beachy location, the incredible views, and the quaint and historic town of East Sandwich.

What makes this house unique

East Sandwich is conveniently located, only 1 hour from Boston, and a great base to explore all that Cape Cod has to offer. For relaxing days, the beautiful private beach is just steps from the door. Visit the Sandwich Marina for fresh fish and lobster and shop at the many gift and antique shops.

My family and I stayed here for a week over the summer and it was exquisite! I didn't want to leave the house is very homey and nothing was spared in the decorations! I don't have the words to express how much we loved this house! It was immaculate and the sunset were just gorgeous! Hoping to stay here again in the summer of 2016!

Perfect anniversary vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary at Belle Mare, it was perfect.I have to first say how thoughtful and kind the owner Janice is, when we arrived there was a gift basket waiting on the dining room table with wine and lots of snacks to enjoy. Her home is not only BEAUTIFUL, but immaculate and very comfortable, we really felt right at home. We've stayed at some nice resorts and hotels and I never felt as pampered as I did here. The aromatherapy pillow spray was over the top. The deck off the master bedroom was the perfect place to enjoy coffee and watch the ocean, what a way to wake up in the morning. If you enjoy cooking, her kitchen has everything you could possibly need. The lower deck was perfect for relaxing, when we weren't laying on the beach. One of my favorite things was the port hole in the upstairs shower, so you could look at the ocean while showering. We decided early in our vacation that we didn't need to go anywhere we loved relaxing at the house and doing nothing. We can't wait to go back next year, and definitely stay longer

Really perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Cottage is exquisite, decorated with charm and whimsy, and truly delightful. As others have posted, the house has everything, and the beach it overlooks is fabulous. Having a covered deck for shady outdoor dining and just enjoying the ocean views was heavenly; the hammock swing was a big hit too. All in all a wonderful cottage!

A little piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place his not a house rental, it's a home. Our family have been renting houses around Europe for many years and we have never seen a place like this. Every little details are thought of. If you are asking yourself if something in particular is there, I'm telling you, it is. It goes even to a bucket full of differents sizes of flip flops on the first floor deck !!! Their is a beach theme trough the house and every pieces of decorations have a perfect spot. Janice as been so helpful to give us informations for the celebration of my mother 80th birthday. It was magical for her and all of us to, actually. I would recommend this place. I know it's pricy but what you get for your money is exceptional. A private beach where you can leave your beach gears on it for the week with no problems and you don't even have to bring any of those gears, because they have everything their. It is so well maintained you won't believe it. About 10-15 min to the grocery store and other services. We didn't go to restaurants at night, because the weather was great and we ate outside on the terrace to the sound of the sea and enjoyed the full moon !!! It was heaven !!! So if you want a place to relax with no problems and great service from the owners, it's the place. You won't be disappointed. Thank you Janice and Gary to let us have the chance to share with you this little piece of paradise! We hope to be back soon with some friends.

Marlène, Jean and the rest of the French connection!

Bella Mare

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful and well maintained! Jan thought of everything -one really only needs to bring their toothbrush and a bathing suit! The house has everything else! Terrific location and close enough to attractions without being congested. We took our 3 and 6 year olds and both loved the home and the beach. Nice community surrounds it also. We will definitely be returning to the Bella Mare!

I am one of those people who is guilty of never writing reviews but always checking them, however on this occasion I feel compelled to comment.

Bella Mare is a beautiful home that is wonderfully decorated and the eye to detail that Janice has makes this feel like a home and not a rental. The quality of the everything is first class and in my 25 years of renting properties I have never stayed in a nicer or cleaner property. My wife and I stayed with our two teenage sons and we all loved our stay. My only complaint was directed at my kids, having travelled from the England they refused to explore the Cape because they enjoyed the house and the beach so much.

We had a wonderful vacation and I have no hesitation in recommending Bella Mare.

P.S. For the avoidance of doubt I am not related to nor have any link with Janice, who for the record was a delight to deal with.
