About Dawn & Steven Karol; member since Dec. 1998

We are attorneys the Boston area but spend most of the summers on Cape with our 5 children. We all love cape cod, the ocean and beach. We recently purchased this beach house (had my eye on it for years :) so do not yet have many vacationer reviews on this home to share. We have owned two neighboring oceanfront homes on this same street for over a decade with a proud unblemished record of delighted vacationers. We assure you that this is a high quality accommodation, a clean, comfortable and gorgeous oceanfront property, a perfect location for Cape Cod vacationing. Feel free to read the rave reviews posted about our properties next door, which is the same great location, on our listings at homeaway listings #105984 and #105982. Beware-- Once you rent oceanfront on Cape Cod, you'll never go back inland or even to the Bay side. Enjoy these warmer waters and gorgeous views!

Dawn & Steven Karol; member since Dec. 1998 purchased this cottage in 2012

Short stroll to a playground with swings on the beach, restaurants, watersports rental, parasail, jet ski, boats.

Pure Bliss

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary here and had the most amazing time! The property is exactly as described and the owner, Dawn, was very kind and easy to communicate with.

We had planned on sightseeing the Cape a bit, but after checking in, we quickly realized that we would be staying put and thoroughly enjoying the R&R we needed. We spent our days watching the tide go in and back out, reading books with our feet in the sand, long walks on the beach, and collecting sea shells.

A short walk down the beach is the most delicious seafood & chowder restaurant, The Skipper, where we ate several times. A quick ride into town offered many other places to eat, gift & candy shops, mini golf, bowling, etc. We also had breakfast and lunch at the Keltic Kitchen and recommend eating there too. Since meals at both The Skipper & The Keltic Kitchen were quite big, we did a little grocery shopping & cooking at the cottage, where we got to enjoy eating with a private ocean view.

It was hard to leave such a peaceful place, we will definitely be back!

Fantastic Gem of a Place!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect from dealing with the owner, to arriving and opening the front door to a fabulous view, to everything we needed being there, to cleanliness and the luxury of having your own private beach, to a quick response from the owner when I had a question, and to receiving my security deposit back within a week. It's even better than the pictures! I recommend this place highly. You won't want to leave - I know I didn't! Thank you, Dawn - my second awesome experience with you.

A small, very quaint beach bungalow. Perfect for 2 people who love the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The Seawitch was the ideal beach bungalow. Walk off the deck and your feet are in sand. The ocean is no more than 20 yards away. We loved the private beach area. We'll be back!

Great house!

  • 4 of 5

House is just as pictured. Stylish and well situated right on the water. Perfect for two adults and one 3 year old. Daughter loved the sand yard. I loved the comfy furniture in and outdoors. The sound and views were hypnotic and relaxing.

Owner very responsive!

Beach was covered in a mass of seaweed on two out of five days and there was a big black plastic pipe that came out of water and onto the sand at the adjacent public beach that kind of disturbed the pristine view. However I assume it's part of some restoration effort.

The area was really busy on Saturday. We visited for an extra long weekend on memorial day. It quieted down on Monday when it rained, but I imagine the place gets really jammed in high season - which could be fun, if you're into people watching from the living room.

Owner's Response: Amy I'm glad your family enjoyed your time at the beachouse! Yes the town was apparently dredging the public beach down the street those two pre-season days to build up the public beach, which expands the sandy beach but did result in that temporary seawood cover over there as part of its dredging construction. As you mentioned it cleared up and there's a beautiful Sandy Beach! Our back yard--our private beach area-- is encased and protected by our Sea walls so was always sandy clean! The holiday weekend -Memorial Day- kicks off the summer on cape cod and woukd typically be busy. Thank you and welcome back!

Awesome getaway!! Location and view can't be beat!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a short break. Was just what the proverbial doctor ordered. Can't say enough about the awesome view from every angle. Cozy, just as shown and described. Dawn and Steven are awesome hosts. Nothing like parking footsteps where you stay. This is the 1st time we didn't have a TV on the entire time we were there. No need, once you hear those waves rolling in. Short distance to any shopping or activities. The sunrise, sunsets, are quite amazing. We ate out.. never.

Really forces us NYC folks to slow down and enjoy a pace that's easily forgotten. We should send all of our politicians, media, warring nations, and for that matter anyone that needs therapy to this little slice of calmness. Done and done.

Also, the retro stereo wall unit makes for quite a conversation piece. Glad Steven left it in.
