Short Walk to Beach and Downtown
Please note that we rent Friday-Friday in the summer. Please ONLY request a Friday-Friday rental from the last week in June through the first week of September.
We have a duplex with two side-by-side units with two bedrooms each. Little to no sound passes between the units. This listing is for our Striper unit, which features a large open living area with a large table and two good bedrooms, all on one level. In addition to a total of 4 beds in the bedrooms, there is also a queen foldout in the living room.
Do you like to walk on the beach? We have a great location for it. A 3 minute walk from your door takes you across a gorgeous salt marsh that connects to an almost empty wild beach of Cape Cod National Seashore, where seals peek at you as the waves crash at your feet as you walk by.
If you have kids, they'll love chasing the fiddler crabs in the salt marsh, digging for clams (need a license to keep 'em), and finding horseshoe and hermit crabs.
If you want to walk to Chatham's picturesque downtown, that works too, about 20 minutes along mostly back-streets. Lots of shops, restaurants, a movie theater and Chatham A's baseball games at Veteran's Field!
In addition to the empty beach across the salt marsh, we are also a 5 minute walk from popular Lighthouse Beach. Walk or ride your bike where you need to go and leave the car in the driveway!
Please note that our rental week runs Friday to Friday from late June through the first week of September. Please only request Friday-Friday rentals for those periods. Note also that for Spring and Fall periods during which a nightly rate applies, you can choose any nights, and there is a discount available for rentals over 5 nights, please inquire.
Our Bluefish unit is also available. You can find it at https://www.homeaway.com/vacation-rental/p4436366 This is also a 2 bedroom unit, and is on two levels. It is slightly less expensive than Striper. The Bluefish unit is good for couples, and is particularly enjoyed by families with kids ages 3-12 (the kids love having the 2 room loft area all to themselves!).

About Walter Branson
I first moved to Chatham in 1967, and have loved it ever since. Our property is about a quarter mile from the house I spent my barefooot summers in as a child.
Walter Branson purchased this House in 2012
Why Walter Branson chose Chatham
My wife and I bought our duplex because of its fabulous location adjacent to a gorgeous Cape Cod National Seashore beach, with a beautiful salt marsh and uncrowded bay beach even closer. We also like the serene backstreets walk to downtown.

Loved the house and the location.
House was well maintained and clean. No issues at all.
Great rental in a quiet location near beach
My family and I had a great time renting this property. Walter, the owner, was quick to respond on renting the home and the property was exactly as described. All in all, I'd consider renting this property again and would love to come back and spend the time in Chatham next summer.
Lovely Private Beach Setting
The property is located in a private area of Chatham with a private beach a short walk away. The owners keep the property clean and well appointed. It is a perfect beach vacation home for small families.
Great vacation property
My husband and I had a fabulous vacation at this Chatham cottage. It was clean, very spacious, has everything you need, it's in a great location, close to Main St. and beaches, but still in a quiet, quaint neighborhood. Walter, the owner was great to work with. Everything was just perfect!! We loved going to Oyster Pond, nice small quiet beach. We enjoyed the "Impudent Oyster", great food and drink. And Larry's PX has the best breakfast EVER!! We would absolutely recommend this location to anyone who loves Cape Cod.
Quiet and relaxed at cape cod!
Loved our stay here at cape cod. The location was excellent especially if you have little children. The bayside is a short walk away with calm waters, incredible amounts of wild/sea life and quiet quiet quiet making it ever so relaxing. Have been there twice this year and will definitely be back again.
We love Chatham!
We have been visiting the Cape for many summers. We love the town of Chatham. We also love the area of Morris Island.
The house was clean and a good size for our family. We have 3 kids ages 9, 7, and 5. The children loved the loft area. The outdoor shower was a treat. Having a washer and dryer was also a huge plus for our family.
The walk to Lighthouse Beach was about 5 to 10mins with little ones. The walk to the private beach was about the same. We enjoyed exploring for crabs and seals.
I would recommend this home. It is close to all the best parts of Chatham.
