Why the Owner Chose Orleans: We chose this as our vacation home because of its proximity to the ocean and its location in an association which offers the privacy we value. Also high on our list were the many recreational opportunities such as surfing, fishing, tennis, hiking, biking, etc. Moreover, the many cultural activities on the Cape,such as the Cape Cod Symphony, year-round theatre, fine galleries, the Nauset National Sea Shore Center (with its museum and film of the 14,000 years formation of the Cape) in Eastham and the Cape Cod Summer Baseball League were strong drawing points.

Unique Benefits of our location: Although very private and close to the beach we also do enjoy the fact that we are only a few minutes' drive from town with all of its amenities.

A modern, private home - walk to Nauset Beach

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property every year for the last 4 or 5 years. The owner is very attentive and pleasant to deal with, and there has been no need to look elsewhere! This property has everything our family needs. It is very clean, well maintained and comfortable, with more than enough space to enjoy. The house has everything you need, including beach equipment and Wi-Fi. It is very secure and is also very private, with air-conditioned bedrooms. There is a nice deck off of the kitchen, and a small deck off the second floor which has a water view and is a perfect place to see the stars at night. The house is minutes from a beautiful scenic walk through a marsh over a foot bridge to Nauset Beach, one of the best beaches on Cape Cod and part of the National Seashore. This house is part of a private association, so when you get to the beach, it is never crowded, as only residence are allowed. I would highly recommend this property, and the rare, private access to Nauset Beach is a gift and something you will never forget. You will want to come back year after year, as we do.

Wonderful house in a fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable house with comfortable beds. The outdoor shower is wonderful. The house is close to the boardwalk and is walkable. You don't have to drive and park which is a plus. There is a great wagon in the garage for use in carting beach gear across the boardwalk to the beach. The house is sunny and bright and well appointed and well maintained. This is our second season renting this house and we plan to rent it again.

Lovely vacation in East Orleans!

  • 5 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay in East Orleans. The accommodations were perfect, and the home had everything we needed. Loved the screen porch, deck and new outdoor shower! The owner was terrific and very customer-focused. The walk to Nauset Beach via the bridge and dunes was spectacular, and the beach was quiet and beautiful. We saw so many seals!.....We enjoyed some of the local Orleans restaurants....Beacon Room, The Knack, Land Ho, Nauset Grill and Hole In One. We also did wine tasting at the Truro Vineyard and shopped in PTown for a day. Just a perfect vacation all around. The weather was glorious as well!

Great Beach Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a great week at Nauset Beach in this property. Not only is it a short walk to the beach, but when you get there you have a huge section of the beach practically to yourself. We have been to the public section of Nauset several times and we have loved it but this was totally different. Same waves, same water, same sand; but no fighting for a parking space, no wedging yourself between four other groups on the crouded beach. It was so relaxing to know that we could go to the beach at any time of the day and know that we would have a spot.

The house was great. The rooms were comfortable, the kitchen had what we needed. I loved the screened in porch. You need to get to the rooftop deck. You can see a little bit of the water but at night the stars are amazing. Especially if there is little to no moonlight. It was by far the most beautiful sky I have ever seen.

My wife and I stayed the whole week and our two sons (21 and 19) and a guest stayed most of the week. Everyone had a great time and nobody wanted to leave.

Wil was great to work with. I have never rented the same property twice but I would definitely come back here. Thank you for a great family vacation!

Fine dining, summer theatre, tennis courts, miniature golf and golf courses await you for your enjoyment in Orleans and adjoining towns. Hiking trails can be found not only on Pochet Island within walking distance just south of of our house but also at Fort Hill, Nickerson Park and many other locations. For smaller children Orleans offers nearby fresh water ponds where toddlers can romp on serene sandy beaches. A 'must see' - and perhaps reserved for a bit of fun on a rainy day - are the Museum of Natural History in Brewster and the Nauset National Sea Shore Visitors Centre in Eastham on Rte. 6. Besides its museum the Centre shows a fascinating film of the 14,000 year formation of Cape Cod since the ice age. Only 35 miles away and at the tip of the Cape is scenic and historic Provincetown renowned for whale watching, fishing, shopping and dining.

Other Activities: Boating, Miniature golf, Kayaking, Shopping, Shelling
