About Bonnie, John and Shane Blaney are your hosts.

Bonnie is a psychologist, John is a retired teacher, and Shane works for a local landscaping company. Bonnie and her family summered in this unique spot and the adjacent home is still in her family. We purchased this property in 1980, started construction in January 1981 and moved in on November 18, 1981. We designed and built our home to capitalize on the view which is stunning in every season!

Why Bonnie, John and Shane Blaney are your hosts. chose South Shore Massachusetts

Our home is a secret gem! We have a secluded private beach that overlooks Cape Cod Bay. Miles of white sandy beaches and tidal pools are yours for exploration as well as access to Ellisville Harbor State Park's hiking trails. Our landscaping, gardens and patios are an ongoing labor of love and yours to enjoy. We are only one hour from Boston available by car, rail or bus. Provincetown is 70 minutes by car, Hyannis and Falmouth are 20 minutes and the gateway to Cape Cod is minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Like we said we designed and built our home and it certainly boasts spectacular views with unique landscaping. Being big Tolkien fans we have dubbed our garden unit " Bag End", the two bedroom is " Middle Earth" and our unit is "Rivendell"! We hope that you will come to love our home as much as we do and enjoy our serene and stunning surroundings. Our neighborhood is quaint and private and lends itself to contemplative meanderings and laid back relaxation.

Sweet Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this little beach getaway!

The unit is clean, roomy, has everything you need and it a quick walk to the beach. We wish we had more time to spend on the beach and have already talked about coming back for another visit.

The best part of the weekend, was meeting the awesome hosts. We were all attending King Richard's Faire and texted to see if we could meet there. Turns out that we had already talked to them earlier in the day! You never know what will happen. John, Bonnie and Shane are gracious hosts and we really wish we could have spent a bit more time getting to know them.

Thank you for a wonderful weekend and we will be back to the Shire again!

Sarah, Daniel and Sue

Cozy stay and minutes from private beach

  • 5 of 5

Bonnie, John, and Shane were great. Their property was very inviting and warm. The rental was more than big enough for my wife, son and I. There's a private beach literally minutes around the corner you have access to which is a major plus. It's about a 25 min drive to the waterfront which isn't bad at all. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely look to go back in the future.

Found a hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

I brought my family here to be close to the beach, have a nice place to stay and not break the bank, and this place delivered on all three. The apartment was nicely decorated and well stocked with the essentials and a few extras which made getting comfortable and settling in very easy. The walk to the beach was short enough to make a few trips back and forth, even carrying a couple kayaks and the rest of the 'beach stuff'. The few interactions I did have with John, Bonnie and Shane felt like I was talking with neighbors I had known for years.

For anyone looking for a nice place to relax with private beach access that's right next to the Cape I would highly recommend this rental.

Wonderful little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The hosts were gracious and accommodating. The room was comfortable, nicely decorated and the grounds were very pretty. We enjoyed the patio and had a fire in the chiminea every night. Great location, close to anything you could possibly need. Short walk to the beach. Would definitely recommend!

Perfect for our little family.

  • 5 of 5

This was my families first little getaway together and we really enjoyed ourselves. Having a 6 month old- we wanted the beach to be close to make it easier. The beach was just a short walk away and really private- which we loved. We fished, swam and enjoyed the sun.

The apartment was cute, nicely decorated and comfortable. The Jacuzzi tub was a plus!

We had our own little grill out back and the outside patio was nice to hang out in. We would come back and suggest to friends! Thank you.
