About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, sleeps 10 to 14, AC

Nestled atop a sand dune focused towards the warm waters of Nantucket Sound, this impeccably clean, contemporary beach house sleeps 10 to 14. Stupendous water views from throughout the house. Exquisitely landscaped with Cape Cod hydrangeas, lilies, and roses border a carpet of lush green lawn ideal for children to play on. Catch the ocean breezes on the large waterside brick patio which functions as an outdoor family room with picnic and barbeque area. Two sets of bedrooms with full baths on the two first floor wings of the house. Upstairs is a deluxe master suite with private bath. A sugar sand beach is a few small steps away down a boardwalk, making it easy for kids to run back and forth to the water where they will want to swim and play all day. This beach-oriented neighborhood boasts some of the most beautiful homes in Harwich and this house is no exception. You’ll relish jogging, walking or biking around the streets here.

There are window ac units in the bedrooms and the dining area which is open to the living room. (There are no windows in the living room that will fit a window ac unit.)

Convenient to local stores, restaurants and other attractions such as a unique children’s theater, the Freedom Ferry to Nantucket, party fishing boats, tennis, go-carts and batting cages.

Nice house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here for a long weekend. Loved the layout of the house - lots of room and privacy for 3 families to spread out, each of us having our own bedroom and full bath. Kitchen had plenty of dishes, utencils, pots/pans etc. A BEAUTIFUL view from the upstairs master bedroom as well as living room. You can walk right over to the neighboring beaches off to the right of your private beach which is also great. Spent a lot of time on the outdoor patio listening to the waves and watching the kids play. Margaret was super easy to deal with and prompt in responding to any questions we had. The only suggestion I would add for future renters is to bring a few extra toilet paper, paper towel rolls, and hand soap otherwise everything else was plentiful.

Fabulous location in Harwich (Cape Cod0

  • 5 of 5

Waterfront location in Harwich. Very private beach is just a few steps away from the house. Our group of 11 fit easily into the home. The very private upstairs master bedroom has windows all around looking out on to the ocean. The other 4 bedrooms downstairs were well appointed with 2 of the 4 also having great views of the ocean. The house is on the older side however it seemed to fit in nicely in the area. The house was well-equipped although we did have two minor issues that were taken care of immediately by Nilson's and their staff. Wonderful people that were very responsive and made us feel very welcome. Shore Road is a fantastic street with gorgeous homes on both sides of the street. We are daily exercise people and this location offered many different routes to take for running or walking not to mention the ability to take long walks on the beach. Restaurants, grocery store and other amenities very close by. Although we are from California, we would definitely repeat our visit to 19 Shore Road

Car: recommended

Swim right in your back yard. Fish on a party boat or rent a sailboat. Take the ferry to Nantucket from nearby Saquatucket Harbor. Fish on the bridges over the Herring River. Rent bikes and ride along the Cape Cod Rail Trail from Dennis to Wellfleet. Race a go cart at the track at the intersection of Rte 28 and Rte 39. Burn calories on the trampolines. See how good a hitter you are at the batting cages or how good a bumper boat captain at the bumper boat flotilla. Dine at the many fine restaurants in Harwich and Chatham, or enjoy a root beer float at the local A&W. Play golf at one of the finest public courses in the US, Cranberry Valley, or play at one of the best and oldest beginner courses in the US, the Harwich Port Golf Course. Play miniature golf. Play tennis or go antiquing. Look for old books in a used bookstore or sit in the Brooks Free Library, admire the Rogers' groups, and read the New York Times. Swim at a fresh water lake (Long Pond).
