This warm and inviting contemporary cape with in-ground swimming pool sits on an acre corner lot in a quiet private neighborhood on top of hill with bay side views. Located off Rt. 6A, it is close to Barnstable Village, Hyannis, and convenient to the beaches, shopping, golf, boating, and restaurants. We provide a Branstable beach pass for the summer rentals.
Our home welcomes guests with an open floor plan, wood burning fireplace, flat screen cable TV, WiFi, updated fully equipped kitchen (refrigerator with ice-maker, microwave, dishwasher and electric stove) gas heat, ceiling fans, hardwood floors throughout, outdoor shower, laundry room and driveway for 6 cars.
The house was designed with the outdoors in mind. The large in-ground pool off the lower level is surrounded by a large deck with a cabaña and an 8 person dining table under the adjacent pergola. An additional high table and chaise lounges along with a BBQ grill makes it the perfect spot to relax or entertain – great to come back to after a day at the beach! An added bonus is the fire pit ready to roast marshmallows and just to relax by on a chilly evening. Off the open plan living and dining rooms through a wall of glass sliding doors and overlooking the pool area is a large (14 x 30ft) deck with a dining table and many chairs. Another great lounging area.
The house has 3 levels including a walk out lower level. On the top floor there are two bedrooms (one king and the other with 2 twin beds) and one full bath. Both bedrooms have sliding glass doors that open to a deck the length of the house with views of Cape Cod Bay; on a clear day you can see the tip of the cape and Provincetown. The first floor has an open floor plan with the kitchen, dining and living rooms, with working fireplace. It is very bright and airy with 2 large (5 foot) sliding glass doors that open to a very large deck fully furnished with a table, chairs chaise lounges, etc. The third bedroom with queen bed is on the first floor and window a/c. There is also another bathroom with a shower. On the lower level there is a laundry room, storage room and a play room. That level opens out to the back yard with the in-ground pool, cabana and deck with seating and unbrellas. We provide a binder full of restaurant suggestions, listing of stores and activities.
My wife, our 2 and 4 year old and me have just come back from a lovely week at Eileen's house in Cape Cod. We live in the UK and so we don't know Cape Cod particularly well but we had a great time - thank you so much for opening the house to us.
The property was very much as stated on HomeAway with all the facilities and amenities listed. Eileen has clearly rented for a while as she was also able to provide comprehensive and really helpful guidance and advice around things to do in the area (restaurants, visits, ice cream stops! etc). She was always very responsive and friendly from the time of enquiry up until the day we left and made our trip nice and easy.
The beach pass gave us access to some really nice local private beaches which all four of us really enjoyed and the pool was lovely and warm and well gated off for a family like us (with two little ones...). The property was lovely and clean and while we did not take enough advantage of all the outdoor cooking and dining options given the age of the kids and the fact they are located quite near the pool, we would look forward to returning in years to come for more relaxing in the sun.
Thanks Eileen and hopefully we will come back one day!
One of thebattractions was that the property is not located in the congested high tourist areas. Yet you could go to the beach or other tourist areas rather quickly.
We 4 adults and 1 baby came in June to this beautiful house and had a wonderful stay.
What we liked most was:
- Beautiful house which fit us comfortably. One bedroom stayed even empty.
- The house is fully equipped, furniture is nice
- Great beds
- Amazing large terrace with views
- Privacy of the house
- Swimming pool, pool deck, and grill are fantastic
- Beautiful quite residential neighborhood with single family homes
- Great beaches in 15 minutes drive reach
- 10 min drive to supermarkets wholefoods, trader joe's
The house is in a quite residential neighborhood so that a car is definitely recommended.
The owner was very response and helped with great advice and improvised a crib and high chair for us.
Overall we would rate this without a doubt a 5 star house and would recommend to anybody.
Perfect place for a mid-Cape get-away. Close to beach (parking pass available as part of the lease!), great pool, and a view of the bay. Pretty neighborhood and close to great restaurants in Barnstable and Hyannis. House is very cute -- perfect for a family of 4+. Eileen was super responsive and a great host!
I can't say enough nice things about this rental. The neighborhood is quiet, the location is between ~15 minutes to everything you might want to do, and the home/pool is ideal for kids. My 3 kids LOVED the pool and the fact that after a day out exploring the area we could come back and they could swim for the rest of the afternoon or evening. Loved it, the pictures are very accurate.
Recently we spent a weekend at 122 Minton Lane. Check-in was very easy, getting the key from the owners. There was a list with information regarding all the appliances, amenities in the house (including the pool and barbecue). There was also a packet with information about nearby sites and activities. There are several restaurants nearby. One of our favorites was Mattakeese Wharf Waterfront Restaurant.
Our favorites were driving to Hyannis (10 minutes away) for ice cream and the beach at Barnstable. A sticker for parking at the beach was included. From Hyannis we also took the high-speed ferry for a day trip to Nantucket Island – one hour trip, worth-while to see the old whaling harbor, shops and restaurants.
The house was very clean and well apportioned. It was very airy and the many windows provided lots of light. Sitting on the deck on the first floor, the view over the view and out to Cape Cod Bay was spectacular. From the second floor balcony (off the master bedroom) the view was even more spectacular.
The pool is heated and there is a firepit near it. We took several of our meals down by the pool area using the BBQ.
The house is well located – just over an hour to Boston, and an easy drive to Provincetown and the Cape Cod Canal. There are bike trails nearby. The one at the canal is flat and approximately 6 miles in each direction.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be coming back again to 122 Minton Lane.
Our house is centrally located on Cape Cod making it ideal to reach all points on the Cape and is 60 minutes to Boston. The house is a short car ride to Barnstable beaches (2 miles), shopping and restaurants. There are many near-by outdoor activities – golf, fishing, wind-surfing, kayaking, bike riding and whale -watching. In Hyannis on the harbor are scenic boat tours, a pirate ship for the kids, and the ferries to Math’s Vineyard Nantucket. We are 45 – 60 minutes to the National Seashore and Provincetown. The Cape Cod Mall is 2 miles away and Mashpee Commons is 5 miles. Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute and the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard are 20 miles along Rt 28.
