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 house in 2012

Short stroll to a playground with swings on the beach, restaurants, watersports rental, parasail, jet ski, boats. This is an Oceanfront dream home, great for either romantic gettaway or family vacation fun.

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!

Love the location, the friends we make, the panaramic view from inside of the beach and ocean!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is if you love the ocean and sand this is it with no company you don't invite. Bed could be better, it's in need of a real mattress but, I'm able to sleep. No other complaints. The whole experience is always what we look forward to every year and the owners are wonderful ! Anything wrong they respond and they are a wonderful family themselves!!!

View To Die For, Pure Peace And Serenity

  • 5 of 5

First and foremost the most amazing thing about this property is the VIEW. We booked the Sea Witch for our wedding (a semi-elopement on the beach out back) and honeymoon and every day we were awestruck by the 180 degree view of the ocean greeting us visually and audibly.

Everything about this property is amazing, from the view to the wonderful deck out back which we sat out on every day to the rocks separating the back beach from the main beach (this really cuts down on the wind more than you would think) to the beautiful wrap-around deck to the Keurig machine and the Pier One Swingasan chair that we sat in every single day and laughed our heads off at such a silly, simple pleasure.

Dealing with Dawn was a joy and she quickly said "yes" to our request to have our micro wedding at the Sea Witch, answering questions, and making it seamless.

My wife and I have no complaints at all, we absolutely LOVED our time here and would rent it again without a second thought!!

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!
