About Sandy Rivlin

While we grew up in Chicago/New Jersey, we have lived in the Boston area for the past 38 years. We are a husband and wife commercial photography team and so are particularly fond of the beauty and light the Cape offers. Wellfleet and Truro are where we we have spent the most memorable summer vacations with family and friends for 25 years!

Sandy Rivlin purchased this house in 2006

Why Sandy Rivlin chose Cape Cod

We have vacationed in this area for years and fell in love with

the area. We purchased the property in 2006 and built our dream vacation house - modern, comfortable, architecturally designed, lots of light, and put all the amenities we loved in 1 house!

What makes this house unique

Our house is open and uncluttered and flooded with light. Our favorite spots: the open kitchen/living area for family dinners; the secluded quiet setting looking out to the natural landscape; the detached screen porch with overhead fan for reading, napping, wine....; the outdoor shower after the beach; the central air conditioning for those really hot days!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"I absolutely loved staying at this cottage~ Modern design, secluded, cozy and charming. My favorite was the gorgeous and huge screened in porch across an open terrace. It's located withinn 2 miles of some of the best beaches "IN THE WORLD".

Sit at the dining table for a meal or crafts, the huge surround windows will place you out in the pine woods of Cape Cod.

Birds and butterflies abound, with gulls circling overhead I cannot wait to return."

Compact, simple elegance

  • 5 of 5

Three generations loved it. Bright, comfy, lots of privacy as desired. Clean, well maintained & cared for, chic design touches, great location, responsive owner. We mostly shop locally and cook in, grilling fish when possible. We immediately booked a longer stay for this season.

Comfortable, clean, and stylish

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house twice and loved it. The house was a perfect secluded getaway but still close to the beach and the excitement of P-town. Butterfly bushes beside the house and gorgeous woods made us feel like we had really escaped to the country by the sea.

The owners were nice enough to let us bring movable gates to keep our kids safe (two staircases made me nervous). It turned out that the house was great for kids and adults alike. They could play in the living room or watch a movie in the basement t.v. room, which was nice and cool after a hot day in the sun. At night, we adults hung out in the detached screen room/lounge and listened to music while the children slept upstairs.

The kitchen, as well as the rest of the house is sunny and surprisingly spacious. We also loved that the house is “green” with bamboo floors and geothermal heating and cooling. The decor is a stylish modern cottage and felt completely comfortable.

The gorgeous beaches were 5-10 minutes away by car and P-town was close-by too. One of the many perks of this house is the helpful binder full of restaurant and other local information that the owner’s created to make a guest feel at home. I highly recommend this house!

*We actually stayed here over a year ago but the website didn't allow me to include the dates.

Awesome Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this great beach house with our family (six adults) for our anniversary. It was extremely comfortable and had every amenity you could want. Our family enjoys cooking and the kitchen was well stocked and roomy. Great gas grill and good size dining table.The living area is nice size with comfortable seating. There is a large game room downstairs with a comfy sofa, large screen tv, cable, and loads of dvds. There is a great speaker system and you can hear music all through the house. The living space is raised and has a relaxing view of the surrounding woods. It also has large windows allowing for great summer breezes.The patio is well laid out with seating and table space.

One of the most enjoyable features is a screened, detached porch allowing

private space that we used for napping, reading, and after dinner activities.

Bedrooms are good size and comfortable.The location is convenient to great beaches and shopping.The decor is very tasteful and contemporary. In conclusion, all aspects of this house are well thought out, and we all enjoyed our stay enormously. We can't wait to return!

Requires more than 7 days, at least sometimes

  • 3 of 5

Dot was very pleasant to deal with, but after three weeks of waiting to confirm our request for reservation, we learned that the owners were not willing to rent the house for only a week. The house really looks like a wonderful property in a great location, but make sure to firm up your stay dates quickly.

Owner's Response: Thank you Alafair for your review. I appreciated your honesty in the events that led up to this review. Being the agent to the owners of the property I recognized I had done a disservice to them by not clearly stating their desire to have only multiple weeks offered. At this time the owners took to heart your review and while still preferring multiple weeks, they have since opened their lovely home up to 1 week rentals. After contacting you about the availability. I was sorry to hear you already made other arrangements, I wanted to take this opportunity to extend my apologies to you and I do hope you have a great vacation here on Cape Cod. Best regards, Dot Caruso
