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!

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

  • 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!

Lives up to all the raving reviews and then some!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time at the Cape and this little house was absolutely PERFECT for my family of 4. My daughter is 4yo and my son is just over 1. Everything from its size, location, amenities was exactly what we hoped our trip to be.

Here are some of the highlights about this place...

5min drive to all the major supermarkets and places to eat

Secluded feel without being too remote for us city slickers

Amazing view during the day and even at night!

Small but has a lot of charm


Two full size beds (one fold out)

Private backyard great for little kids to play in the sand

Private parking up front

We all liked this place enough that we are already thinking about going back next year!

Anniversary getaway.

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful 3 days, the pictures didn't do it justice. The location is fabulous and the cottage has just about everything you will need.

The bed was uncomfortable, but I usually expect that with a rental.

The owner was absolutely fantastic to deal with, and I will definitely going back.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Jane. I'm glad you enjoyed the Seawitch! I'm sorry the mattress was not comfortable for you; it is new and most think comfy but some have different preferences for firmness. I am adding another mattress topper also to help. Thank you and you are certainly welcome back!

My wife and I stayed here June 2016. We have rented on the Cape for the past several years and must say, this cottage tops the list. Property was very clean and has everything you will need for a relaxing getaway. The Murphy bed was great as our adult children did visit for a couple of nights. View is spectacular , sunrise pictures are a must . Even in the beginning of June the water was warm enough to swim in. We look forward to visiting again next year. Owners are great to deal with, we had no issues at all.

Perfect beachside getaway!

  • 5 of 5

I honestly can't say enough good things about this amazing cottage. My girlfriends and I celebrated my birthday weekend at this awesome spot- we enjoyed sunbathing on the beach, swimming, kayaking, and yoga on the deck. It was such a relaxing and wonderful weekend! Even inside the cottage you have the benefit of amazing ocean views and can hear the ocean right outside. As if the beach location, multiple decks, outdoor shower, and glass doors wasn't enough-- the inside is decor is lovely with a funky retro vibe and plenty of space to cook, relax and enjoy the view. It was so hard to leave this serene place and we can't wait to go back again. The owners were super accommodating and even stopped by to make sure we had everything we needed. I couldn't have asked for a better 29th birthday! Thank you!
