About Trudy Costantino or Joe Costantino
We brought up our two boys here. We all like traveling but coming home to such a wonderful setting was great. It is our sanctuary in our busy lives.
Trudy Costantino or Joe Costantino purchased this Estate in 1985
Why Trudy Costantino or Joe Costantino chose Orleans
We originally bought the land for resale, but once we started building the house we fell in love with the view. The sunsets are spectacular and sitting on the deck watching the marsh and bay was so peaceful. We hope that others who rent our home will love it as much as we do
What makes this Estate unique
The location is ideal, bike paths are nearby, walking to town and restaurants is a snap and being so close to the beach is a added bonus.

The pros: The property was large and a great size for our family. The maintenance man, Chris, who is on site was very nice and asked times if we had any issues. The view was amazing and plenty of room to play outside. Home had amazingly detailed woodwork and tile flooring.
The cons: Home is very dated and was not clean, even for a rental. Given the rental price, I would expect the home to be clean and to have some better updates to the property.
Overall, a large and decent place, with a great view.
So much room and the view is the star of the show!
Very comfortable; kitchen well appointed. Bathrooms dated, but clean, neat and easy to use. Backyard perfect for large family gatherings!
Great location, beautiful views of the marsh and sunsets
Older house with lots of character and unique villa style. Comfortable for large parties with lots of room to gather, relax and enjoy the quiet.
We did not notice that LINENS AND TOWELS ARE NOT PROVIDED. Plan ahead because the alternatives are expensive.
Enjoyment for all in Orleans
Property is beautiful and 'user friendly' with a 'to die for view' across the salt marsh to the water's edge. Caretaker on property was a total plus -- very cordial and helpful to our family of ten and two dogs.
Our large family enjoyed the location and proximity of this house to our favorite Orleans beaches, the rail trail and bakeries. The marsh was perfect to kayak down to the beach. The house accommodated all of us comfortably.
Exceptional Property and Perfect Stay
My wife and I stayed here with family and friends in late June and early July 2016. Trudy was very responsive and easy to communicate with and she was willing to let us hold a tented, catered dinner in the front yard, which served as the rehearsal dinner for our wedding. It should be noted that to hold this event, we were required to rent toilets as to not overwhelm the septic, work with an insured caterer, and pay a bit extra. The front yard was large enough to accommodate more than 70 people, and our families were amazed with the view of the sun setting over the marsh, Skaket Beach, and Cape Cod Bay. After the dinner, we cleared and cleaned and our group went over to the newly opened Hog Island Brewery which is maybe 0.5 mi away. Note that we relied on small shuttle transportation to obey parking constraints. Our wedding photographer came to the house the next day and captured beautiful photos near the gazebo, pergola, and around the fruit orchard. Earlier in the spring, we had actually visited the house and were given persimmons to take home and eat! We witnessed several sunsets at peak high tide which made for spectacular views from almost any room of the home, which was constructed in such a way to maximize these water views. One night there was a thunderstorm and we had a perfect (albeit potentially exposed) vantage point from the master bedroom to film lightning bolts hitting the bay, illuminating the marsh at high tide. The caretaker, Chris, stayed on site above the garage and was friendly and pleasant and kept to himself, helping to keep the grounds looking beautiful. The house itself is very spacious, clean, and comfortable. On our last day, we paddle boarded from Skaket Beach through the Namskaket river and right into the back yard of the house which was something we’ve wanted to do for over a year, and the perfect way to end our time at Mallard View. During our stay we saw numerous deer and various bird species in the marsh (thankfully not getting attacked by osprey as we passed the nest on our paddleboard route). The only negative of our stay was the sandflies (aka no-see-ums) which seemed to ravage me on several occasions. Our stay at the house exceeded all expectations and we thank Trudy and Chris for helping make our wedding week unforgettable for us and our families.
It was a pleasure having these guest at my house. They were so respectful and easy to deal with. We try to keep up our maintenance as best we can and each year replace and fix what needs to be done. We are not perfect but we try to make staying at our house a pleasant and lasting experience.
