About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

If you are looking for the PERFECT SUMMER VACATION, we have the perfect place for you. Imagine sitting on the porch, gazing out over the ocean from 80 feet above. Imagine walking at low tide on sand flats and in tide pools for miles, finding shells, sea glass and other beach treasures along the way. Imagine the stillness and quiet of an empty, semi-private beach as the full moon rises bright orange over the ocean. Imagine splashing in the waves, building sand castles or playing horseshoes, wiffle ball, or volleyball on the beach. We have all of this to offer you and much more! Leave your worries and stress behind and come relax and play in our haven by the sea.

Situated on Manomet Bluff, our house offers the comfort and charm of a summer cottage, combined with ample space and myriad amenities for your family and friends. It is just 6 miles from downtown Plymouth and 12 miles from Cape Cod, but without the traffic and hassles of either tourist destination. Our home boasts an uninterrupted view of the waters of Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown, which is over twenty miles across the bay. It is across the street from a beautiful, three-mile, white sand beach.

With six comfortable bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large open living area (living room/dining room) and fully equipped kitchen, this is the ideal spot for a family or small group looking for an easy seaside vacation. Relax in a beach chair or claim your favorite spot on the partially screened in, wrap-around porch.

The large kitchen is equipped with everything you need for fantastic dining or simple summer meals, including cooking utensils, pots and pans, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, blender, and spices. The spacious living room has a large television with cable and DVD and plenty of comfortable seating from which to enjoy it. Oversized windows open fully to allow the bay breezes in. The spacious dining area has a table and seating to accommodate up to 12 people. Enjoy breakfast on the screened in porch, where there is an outdoor table and chairs, a gas grill, 4 porch chairs and 2 lounge chairs. The wrap around porch offers both sun and shade and several wonderful rocking chairs from which you can enjoy the ocean views.

The downstairs bathroom is equipped with a toilet and sink in a separate room from the walk-in shower. Upstairs is a large bath featuring a 100-year-old claw foot soaking tub. The 6 bedrooms include a full-sized bed on the ground floor, two upstairs rooms with two twin beds each, an upstairs room with two twins made into a King, another room with one twin bed, and the last with a twin and a crib and changing table.

Manomet, Massachusetts is a small, quiet, seaside village in the southern coastal area of Plymouth, MA, 46 miles from Boston and 60 miles from Providence, RI. Nearby are Plimoth Plantation, Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock, whale watching and sunset cruises, numerous golf courses, a variety of restaurants for any palate and wallet, quaint shops, a mall, a 14 screen movie theater, and many other attractions.

Come enjoy our favorite place and you're sure to have a fantastic, trouble free vacation.

About Carolyn

Our family has had great enjoyment from this home for over half a century. Our parents, us, our children, and now our grandchildren love having our own 'piece of heaven.' We have traveled the world and seen many amazing and wonderful places. Still, nothing compares to Manomet Beach, for us. We hope you will come and enjoy the place that one of our adult daughters calls 'her salvation.'

Carolyn purchased this house in 1955

Charming, spacious beach house with a lovely view

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for an extended family vacation. It did not disappoint. Children, grandchildren and aunts all enjoyed their time at Manomet. The home is set up for family interaction yet provides plenty of space for privacy when desired. The great room promotes interaction such as board game playing and the wi-fi allows computer time when desired. Evenings and early morning time on the front porch and screened in side porch are very special. The home was very clean and the supply of towels, linens and beach equipment very complete. We appreciated the homes rustic nature which reflects it's age, yet it provides a full bath upstairs and shower and separate toilet room downstairs. The owner is very welcoming, friendly and helpful. He took the time to orient us to the house and surrounding area, doing all he could to ensure that our vacation was was a success. The beach is lovely with pure, white sand and is very private. The stairs to the beach are typical and familiar to anyone who has spent time on Cape Cod Bay. All in all, this was a perfect vacation and we highly recommend this beautiful family home to others seeking time at the beach. We only wish we could have stayed longer.........

A Peaceful Retreat....

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this cottage in Manomet several times over the years, and always look forward to going back. It's quiet, peaceful, relaxing, and just a wonderful place to let the world slip away. You have all the comforts of home, and a beach that you practically have all to yourself - never, ever any crowds. I brought my husband there for the first time a couple years ago and he loved it as much as I do. We had a picnic on the beach, strolled down the quiet street to peek at all the other beachfront homes, went for ice cream at the old stand at the end of town, picked up fresh steamed lobsters at the point for dinner. It's the perfect place to kick back and relax. We can't wait to go back again!

We've been “repeats” at this property for quite a few years now and it's always a joy to return. The spectacular location, the sparkling ocean view, the quiet luscious beach, the cool ocean breezes, all the comforts of home and the charm that this lovely large cottage exudes will always make it the retreat you'll want to keep coming back to. A great place to make memories!

A Relaxing Oceanfront Getaway without all the Cape Code hassles!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay during July of 2010 was memorable in many ways. "Bay Breeze" has all of the charms you'd expect from a large seaside "cottage"--very spacious, modern conveniences, easy beach access and privacy. We found the front porch and screened porch to be instant relaxers for morning coffee and reading, and the beach area to be surprisingly private--clearly because this is a "neighborhood" beach with no real public parking, very few seem to take advantage of it. All the better.

This stands in stark contrasts to the many Cape Cod rentals that are out there in the summer--invariably crowded, with awful bridge traffic and lots of noise. We're so glad we skipped the Cape--and came to magical Manomet instead.

The house itself was great--it reminds you of family vacations long ago, with hardcover books filling the bookcases, spaciously living and cooking areas--the kind of place where you can simply kick back and relax with your family and friends. It was clean, the owners helpful, and a real find for the money.

We'll return to Bay Breeze again, and strongly recommend it if you want a week to get away.
