Overview

Chatham House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

NO Homeaway/VRBO renters fee, not now or ever. As owners of this property we will NEVER let you pay an unjust and unfair rental fee from the listing agent!

This exclusive Shore Rd location and home will be part of great family memories for many years to come. Everyone who vacations at this property is delighted to have discovered a home that is built right on the beach and ocean, yet is only a few minutes walk to the heart of Main St.

'The Sand Box' is sited directly on its own private beach. It sits ahead of all the other estate homes, and offers completely unobstructed views of Pleasant Bay and the open ocean beyond.

This property is approximately a 5-7 minute walk to the dozens of shops, restaurants, and art galleries that line Main St.; and the world famous Chatham Bars Inn and Spa is less than 200 yards to our north, by beach or road.

Our private beach is wide and deep, with soft sand, and has no rocks or seaweed. The clean, gentle water is protected by a barrier island, and is wonderful for small children and adults alike. Locals and guests agree that we have the best spot in Chatham for a relaxing, peaceful, and fun family vacation.

'The Sand Box' is a Mid-Century Cape that was completely reconstructed from the foundation up in 2000. Our home now features a chef's kitchen including All Clad cookware, a full compliment of dinnerware and utensils, and various small appliances that include a juicer and a Nespresso machine with supplies.

Our home features three new European tile baths, gas fireplace, hardwood floors, Samsung "smart" TVs throughout home, Premium HD DirectTV, inside and out speaker system with Blue Tooth remote, latest Xbox 1 interactive game station with library, hi speed DSL wifi, guests lap top and 4 way printer, halogen lighting, outside chairs, lounges, dining table, and umbrella, stainless steel gas barbeque, beach view fire pit, plentiful beach chairs, and four tuned up and ready to go mountain bikes of different sizes.

CONDITION OF HOME: All furniture, furnishings, carpets, pillows, mattresses, linens, towels, etc are deluxe quality, and are maintained in new condition at all times. Our home is professionally cleaned between guests.

CLEANLINESS: Our guests expect no less than the condition and cleanliness of their own home, or a five star hotel, and that's what we try our best to provide.

'The Sand Box' is not a large home (under 2000 sq feet) and we limit occupancy to one family, plus guests, up to 7 people total.

Our home consists of three bedrooms and three full baths. All rooms have full on ocean views. The MBR has a full en suite bath with shower and king bed, the guest bedroom has a full bath off the hallway and a queen bed, and the upstairs kids bedroom has an en suite full bath and three single beds. Please note: the stairs to the upstairs kids bedroom are steep and NOT suitable for toddlers without supervision!

Our property manager meets and greets all guests and is a long time Chatham resident who can offer advice about all things Chatham. She is available for advice, help, repairs, recommendations, and any issues large or small, on a 24/7 basis.

A final note: one neighbor family has access to our beach through a small path on the other side of the bike shed you see in the photos.

Please come and enjoy! It would our privilege to welcome you as an honored guest.....
