Classic oceanfront summerhouse of yesteryear - privacy on the beach

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

6 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms plus outdoor shower, sleeps 10

Enjoy this comfortable, classic two story summerhouse directly on the beach with distant views to Sankaty Light and Sesachacha Pond. The beach can be reached by a short path, and is essentially private.

The house has a relaxed feel and is very comfortable.There are four outdoor seating areas. Overlooking the ocean to the east, there are a screened porch and two decks, a small one downstairs and a large one upstairs with sweeping views. On the west side of the house, the patio is a super place for watching sunsets.

The living room looks over the ocean and has a large river rock fireplace. The kitchen is open to the dining room and has a large serving area; the screened porch can also be used for dining. The laundry, three bedrooms, and three baths (2 with shower, one with claw-foot tub) are on the same level as the dining room, kitchen, and living room. One queen bedroom on the lower level has ensuite bath. Upstairs, all three bedrooms have views and share a bath with shower.

The kitchen is fully equipped for a large group. There are two refrigerators. The gas cooktop and electric oven are new within the last four years.

A nearby pond with a large sandy beach is a five-minute walk away, and is excellent for children.

The house does not have air conditioning, but there is a fan for every bedroom.

The house is not insulated; there is a gas heater in the living room. Weekly rental rates in September are lower, accordingly.
