About the property

4+ BRs, 3 Bathrooms, sleeps 9.

Everyone who sees this house falls in love with it. It is charming, comfortable, sparkling clean and beautifully decorated. The view of Lewis Bay is magnificent. The semi-private beach - with warm, shallow water, perfect for kids - is a few yards from the front door. Completely renovated in 2010/2011, the house has modern amenities but retains the charm of old Cape Cod. Wood floors throughout. Central A/C plus ceiling fans in every room, WIFI, cable TV, granite kitchen countertops, Keurig coffee brewer, marble/tile bathrooms, Bosch W/D, Pottery Barn beds, comfortable mattresses and good quality linens, original artwork, an enormous library with a sound system, outdoor gas grill, picnic table, outdoor shower w/ dressing area. Two king beds, one queen, three twins. Cribs are available for infants or young toddlers. A perfect home away from home. The house is great for families/friends to share. The lower level, w/ bedroom, bath and LR, has its own entrance. The grounds are beautifully landscaped. Walking distance to Nantucket ferries & Hyannis.

Description of the cottage: The main floor of the cottage has two sitting rooms (both with gorgeous views of Lewis Bay, which gives into Nantucket Sound, and has lots of boats passing by on their way from Hyannis Harbor, and the Hyannis Marina, to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard), a dining area, kitchen, TV room (40' TV), large bedroom (king), washer/dryer and one bathroom w/ tub/hand shower (not en suite). The upper floor has one queen bedroom, one bedroom with two twins, and a small extra room with a single bed and a small bathroom (shower, no tub). The lower floor is not accessible from inside the house but has its own entrance, shown in the thumbnail photo of the house. The lower floor has a huge library with a 60' plasma TV, sound system, floor to ceiling mirror, kitchenette (sink and under-the-counter refrigerator, no cooking), king bedroom and bathroom (shower, no tub). The entire house is renovated, the bathrooms are all marble and tile. On the main floor is a deck, on the lower floor a patio, also with a gorgeous view of Lewis Bay, a large outdoor shower, and a picnic table and outdoor Weber grill, facing the water. A floor plan can be emailed.

The house sleeps a strict maximum of nine guests, including all adults and children. No exceptions to the maximum number of guests, except for an infant in a crib.

The house comes fully equipped: We provide all bed linens and quilts, comforters or blankets depending on the season. We provide a crib sheet and bumper pads, but no cover or pillow for the crib. We also provide bath towels, beach towels, and kitchen towels. One bath towel, hand towel and beach towel per guest. More towels can be provided upon request. The house is equipped with a video/DVD library, CD's, board games, puzzles, cards, bocce ball set, beach chairs, and beach umbrellas. Bring your own bicycles. There is an extensive library of books, mostly history, biography, art, novels, and children's books. There is central A/C plus a ceiling fan in each room. The kitchen is stocked with staples such as spices, sugar, flour, a lobster pot, two coffee machines, a toaster, and basic cleaning supplies.

Street parking in front of the cottage is for two cars. More cars can be accommodated. Please advise Owner if more than two cars are expected.

The Owners live nearby and are available anytime the need arises.

Very central location. The small semi-private beach is a few yards from the front door, and Bayview Beach is around the corner. Large public beaches such as Kalmus, Seagull, Craigville, and many more, are short drives from the house. There are also fresh water ponds within a short drive. Also within walking distance - the Hyannis Marina, downtown Hyannis (with shopping, restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlors, banks, post office, and the JFK Museum) and the Steamship Authority Ferries, with boats to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Within a short drive are the airport, bus station, hospital, the HyLine Ferries, the Cape Cod Mall and the movie theater. The Cape Cod Melody tent in Hyannis has world-class performers every summer. The Cape Cod Symphony, also in Hyannis, gives concerts throughout the fall, winter and spring. Art shows, antiques fairs, and flea markets abound all over the Cape throughout the year. There are several great public golf courses nearby. Our location is the perfect one from which to explore all corners of the Cape, participate in lots of activities - or just relax. The Cape is heaven and the cottage is a little piece of paradise.

Great get away spot

The Perfect Cape Cottage was just that! The cottage has a wonderful view and has easy beach access. The yard was beautifully taken care of and nice and private.

The home was well equipped. It was a fantastic get away location. We would highly recommend this location for your gathering.

Myself and 4 colleagues rented this property for a conference on The Cape. The property was perfect, absolutely no complaints - beautiful house, perfect location, everything was in order upon our arrival, Anick was extremely helpful and friendly, and the view was amazing. I'd recommend this to anyone seeking a cottage on The Cape!

Amazing Cape Cod Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Now that our children have finished college and are venturing out to begin their own lives, we wanted one more family vacation that each of us could treasure. We found that. The home was spotless, comfortable with plenty of room to stretch out... I wanted to read, my husband enjoyed the beautiful view, my children played games, puzzles and our guests watched movies. The views were amazing. I can't decide which view I liked best: the view from the backyard shown in the picture, the tree lined view from the front porch, the window views or the view at the ocean. There was plenty to do in the area. The boys especially enjoyed the golf! It was just what we all needed - time together and time away from the stresses of work. Annick was terrific! Thank you for a wonderful memory!

Great Fall Get-a-way!

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home with amazing views of Lewis Bay, beach within steps of front door for shell hunting. Short walk to Hyannis Harbor, and central location for all things Cape Cod. Look forward to returning another time for more memories of Cape Cod.
