Cozy Cottage

  • 4 of 5

Great time in Osterville. The cottage was clean and tidy-perfect for family with children. There was everything you might need, plenty of space for relaxing. Kitchen was large enough to accommodate everyone for meals. Even 3 televisions for a rainy day!

The nearby beach was also good for the little ones-not too deep, gentle surf, lots of shells for collecting, rocks to climb and bay side swimming.

The town is cute with nice restaurants and a small general store. Everything you could need is within a 15 minute drive.

Definitely would go back to this cottage and highly recommend it for families.

Owner is available via text, email and phone.

Fantastic vacation in Osterville!

  • 5 of 5

We just wrapped up an incredible week on the Cape! The home is very comfortable and in a perfect location. We walked home from the beach each day, and everything we needed was within walking distance. The owners are kind and very responsive. Our family feels very fortunate to have found this rental and be able to spend a week in Osterville. We're looking forward to coming back again!

Great rental by the beach

  • 4 of 5

The property was close to town center and to the beach. It was clean and cozy. The beds were comfortable and all the linens were clean and easy to find. The kitchen was well stocked so that we didn't need for much.

Dowses beach was warm enough for a Floridian to swim in and there is section of the beach which is calmer for toddlers. We spent every day at the beach either swimming or searching for minnows and fiddler crabs. There was even a fishing pier for those interested in fishing.

Nearby Marstons Mills has an airfield where you can go on a biplane ride. My husband enjoyed his ride immensely.

It was also fairly close to Mini-golf and other Cape attractions.

Brian was super nice and very helpful especially when my daughter left her stuffed animals and I punched a hole in the wall. We would love to come back for another visit.

The only reason that I am not giving this property five stars is because all the bedrooms did not have air conditioning and the stairs down to the basement are very steep.

Couldn't be happier!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful bungalow within walking distance to the village, groceries, the beach, and a short drive to everything else on Cape Cod. The owners are a pleasure to deal with. This is the perfect place for a family to spend their summer vacation.

Osterville charmer

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent rental! The home is well cared for and it's central location made staying there so much fun. The kids were able to walk to the Market, or Dunkin Donuts in the morning, and the beach is just a short walk away. The little village of Osterville, MA has everything the vacationr could possibly need. This rental is perfect for a family or a couple! With forced air heat, a washer and dryer, cable television, internet access, and plenty of room for entertaining you can feel right at home. the owner's were responsive and helpful both ahead of time and during our stay. When we needed a recommendation on a dinner restaurant they emailed us directly back with an excellent suggestion. Enjoy the beaches, and the style of a charming Cape Cod village at this rental.
