South Wellfleet House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms With Water Views, 3 Full Baths, Sleeps 7, Privacy & Simple Luxury

This beautiful modern home, built by a landscape painter as an artistic retreat, enjoys dramatic views across a sheltered inlet from Cape Cod Bay. Completely renovated in 2015, the house now features two master bedrooms (queens) with en suite baths and two additional bedrooms (a pair of twins and a single) with a shared bath. All of the bedrooms have water views -- as do the gourmet kitchen, spacious dining area, and adjoining family room with a wood-burning stove. Overlooking the water are two decks, a bluestone patio, and two outdoor showers (one private). Half Shell Cottage is furnished with a lovely mix of contemporary and mid-century furnishings -- and the house has a multi-zone central air conditioning system, hot air heat, and amenities including hi-speed Internet WiFi, basic cable, a laundry room with washer/dryer, and a gas grill. The house is in South Wellfleet, a 5-6 minute drive from downtown Wellfleet. It's an extraordinary property!

** Please note: To protect the privacy of our current renters, we can not offer visits to the house for prospective renters. Please be in touch if you would like additional pictures of the property or have questions about it. Thank you! **

Here is a recent New York Times article about the Wellfleet area and why it is such a wonderful place to get away from it all: http://nyti.ms/1EkYcZW.

Beautiful home and beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

The pictures on the website don't do this home justice. The house is immaculate, the renovations are gorgeous while maintaining its original mid century modern character, the kitchen has everything you could need, and the beautiful views through the huge glass doors are why we love wellfleet. We also enjoyed the walking trails right off the home.

Modernist magic

  • 5 of 5

This is among our all-time favorite homes on the Cape. The home is so bright, open and exquisitely tasteful without being fussy, and the views are to die for.

Gorgeous Solitude!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderfully relaxing retreat. Rented the house for a late fall weekend getaway with several girlfriends. The house is absolutely stunning. Forget about Provincetown, you won’t want to leave Half Shell cottage, the picture perfect view is too breathtaking. House is well equipped with all essentials. We strolled the beach right outside the back door, relaxed with good books in the comfortable couches, and enjoyed a few of the board games around the coffee table. The fantastic open kitchen plan is great for those that like to cook and equally great for those that like to sit at the counter/bar and watch others cook for them. Very comfortable, family friendly environment, everyone will feel right at home. And every room (except one bathroom) has a water view! A gorgeous hideaway. Kate was very responsive and easy to communicate with in making the reservation. Highly highly recommend! Can’t wait to visit again.

A place that will inspire!

  • 5 of 5

What a spectacular home! Nestled on a hill, it’s contemporary and comfortable with light-filled and spacious rooms. Water views abound! And a recent renovation has included the finest attention to detail. I’m from Boston and enjoyed an off-season weekend getaway with some dear girlfriends (who I don’t see often enough). It couldn’t have been more perfect. In fact we all loved the house so much, we had to tear ourselves away for a morning trip to PB Boulangerie Bistro and hiking on a nearby nature trail. We opted for most meals in to spend more time hanging out in the divine kitchen, around the table, and by the fire. This is so much more than your typical beach house -- although its location puts you in a great spot to enjoy the natural world and treasures of the Cape -- it's truly a place that will inspire!

pictures don't do this house justice

  • 5 of 5

the house is stunning - a mid-century gem that has been updated to make it easily the nicest house i've rented on the cape. even better is the large secluded lot right on the water, with three patios from which to take it all in. to boot, kate (the owner) made everything easy. a five star rating doesn't do this home justice!

The house is located in a tranquil pine forest up a private path from one of South Wellfleet's most secluded tidal beaches. The beach in front of the house is perfect for kayaking and paddleboarding, and the property's paths lead into the Conservations lands of the Fox Island Preserve -- wonderful for hiking and birdwatching. The house is 2 miles (a 5 minute drive) from the famed Atlantic dune beaches, and is within minutes of fresh water ponds for swimming and boating, the Mass Audubon Society, the Cape Cod National Seashore, and a 24 mile-long bike trail connecting nearby towns.

In South Wellfleet (within 5 minutes by car) is a charming General Store and the famed PB Boulangerie Bistro. Nearby historic Wellfleet -- "The Art Gallery Town" -- offers many restaurants, art galleries, and summer theater events.

Half Shell Cottage is available to rent for Wellfleet OysterFest (we are 5 miles from Wellfleet, about 6 minutes by car), events at Truro Vineyards (10 miles), the Provincetown International Film Festival, and Provincetown Jazz Festival (15 miles). This Cape Cod rental is the perfect summer house or off-season weekend getaway - to hike, bike, and kayak, or just relax.
