Bonnie is a psychologist, John is a retired teacher, and Shane is a student at UMASS Boston. 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!
Our home is a secret gem! We have a secluded private beach that overlooks Cape Cod Bay. Milles 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. Plrovincetown is 70 minutes by car and Hyannis and Falmouth are 20 minutes.
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.
Great property convenient to everything in the area including areas near or in Boston and the Cape...Very modern and decorated nicely, much more comfy than a hotel room or even B&B which were other options I had considered.....Walking distance to private beach and wildlife refuge....If you stay you will not regret it, and the owners were nice enough to leave a bottle of wine for us on the table.....Thanks to John, Bonnie and Shane for a great stay!!!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying with Bonnie and John while celebrating our 5th anniversary. We were welcomed with beautiful flowers, a bottle of wine and local veggies which was such a surprise and very appreciated. The apartment was immaculate and clean and so tastefully done in décor that we truly felt at home and in addition the outside grounds and patio were goregous, I wish we can post photos as we captured quite a few. The nearby beach is so beautiful and relaxing and only a few minutes walk. The location is perfect as we were close to the Cape and were able to take a ferry over to Marthas Vineyard that was a great destination to visit - very charming! At night, while sitting out on the patio with our glasses of wine, we were able to visit with Bonnie a bit and she is so sweet! Both Bonnie and John are great hosts and we highly suggest booking their place - you will not regret it! We had wished that we had a longer vacation other than a few days off so that we can enjoy the area, the beach and the relaxing atmosphere that they have created! Thanks for everything Bonnie and John! We will be back for sure!
All in All was Ok, had a tough time getting a hold of someone for the address. Homeaway was not at all helpful in this whole matter. A couple of nights I had no parking stall to park in which I thought the money that we spent parking should not be an issue, but it was. A lot of noise from the unit above us, we didn't appreciate that. The shower in Bath was a bit small but otherwise the unit overall was nice. Again for the money spent, HomeAway was not a good organization to go thru, very rude customer service. I would not recommend going thru HomeAway, which hurts this property, to book a vacation.
This place was absolutely amazing. The hosts were wonderful people that were more than accommodating, it felt much more like a home than a vacation. Our first day we arrived and the owner greeted us with a bottle of wine, making sure our room was perfect and left us the Internet password and firewood before telling us all the best places to eat and visit. The house itself was fantastic. Comfortable bed, large jet tub, functioning kitchen, totally took the stress away from traveling. The house is right across from a quiet beach that is gorgeous. It's a must vacation spot, and there's no better place to stay than here. I'd give it 500 stars if I could.
We had the most wonderful stay in the lower level garden suite! Although we were a bit early, our hosts were warm and welcoming. Just really, really nice people!!! Our suite was incredibly clean and, although not a large space, it was chocked with everything one would need for a stress-free stay...and by everything, I mean linens, towels and even beach towels. Our hosts truly have thought of everything for their guests including beach chairs that you can use at the beautiful private beach which is a very short and easy walk from the house. We so enjoyed walking the coastline, collecting shells, seeing seals, hermit crabs and more during our stay. If you're not into the beach, you still have great outside options back at the house to enjoy. The house has several different areas where you can relax during the day -- or at night by a fire. Like our room, the outside grounds are very well kept. The location of this rental made it very easy to explore different sites around the Cape. There are so, SO many terrific restaurants nearby, your only problem will be deciding which one to try! The grocery, liquor store, Dunkin Donuts and CVS is right down the road from the rental so anything you want or need is just minutes away. We had a wonderful time and were beyond thrilled with our accommodations and our hosts. Definitely recommend it...
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your home! This is the most adorable property and we enjoyed every minute. The short walk to the beach and surrounding trails kept us busy and were very relaxing. Your suggestions for dinner were spot on and the apt. was immaculate. We especially enjoyed eating breakfast on the patio and enjoying the beautiful scenary. Our welcome note and celebration gift was also so very thoughtful and appreciated! I hope we can visit again!
