About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Your beach house awaits! Easy walk to Falmouth's beautiful beaches but nestled far enough off the road to relax peacefully. The home is located just two blocks from Falmouth Harbor where you can watch the boats and fish from the end of the pier. Also, if a trip to Martha's Vineyard is on your wish list, look no further; the Island Queen boat departs just a two-minute walk from our back door. No worries about parking or missing the boat! The home is also within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and nightlife.

We take pride in our home and have made many renovations in the past few years. In 2012, fresh paint (interior and exterior), new flooring, updated lighting, new bed linens and professional furniture cleaning. In 2013, we added a new Weber gas grill perfect for summer cook-outs. For the 2014 season, we purchased a front loading, high efficiency washer and dryer as well as two new twin beds. Most recently, you can enjoy a warm outside shower, washing off the sand from a long, relaxing beach day.

Details about the accommodations: Two-story home sleeps 4-6 with two bedrooms (upstairs), full bath, eat-in kitchen and pull-out queen sleeper sofa in living room. Kitchen includes dishwasher, 5-burner gas stove, full-size refrigerator, microwave and all the amenities for your dining needs. Full-size tub in bathroom for ease of bathing little ones. Bedrooms feature one queen bed and two twin beds with window air conditioners in both rooms. Living room has comfortable seating for six with entertainment options including a flat-screen tv, DVD player (assorted movies available), iPod docking station, board games and puzzles. Home is equipped with cable and wireless internet access.

The house is situated back from the road so you can freely enjoy the outdoor space. The backyard includes an outdoor eating area and gas grill. The large sunny front yard is perfect for frisbee, soccer, or relaxing in the evening with the cool ocean breeze.

For your added convenience, we provide beach chairs, coolers (several sizes), beach toys, boogie boards and a wagon to easily bring your gear to/from the beach. We love our little spot of Cape Cod bliss and hope you do, too!

About Amanda Tobey

This house is owned by siblings, Seth and Amanda. Our family has enjoyed the sandy beaches of Cape Cod for generations. We are happy to give others the opportunity to have many memorable moments at the water's edge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ever since we came in to the house and saw the painting in the hallway by J.Tobey, we realized that we are welcomed into a house that has been cherished by your family for many years. Everything from board games and holland motif decorative china to the hand-made decorations in the children's room spells authenticity and warmth. My daughter, who celebrates her birthday today, said it's the best vacation she's had - and the girl has traveled.

Walk to everything! Beach, ferry, grocery store, Starbucks, downtown restaurants and shops

  • 5 of 5

My husband and college age children relaxed for a week at Amanda's little cottage in early June. The VRBO photos and descriptions are very accurate -- clean, well-stocked, comfy beds, and best of all a great location! We left the car parked most of the time because the location is so good that we didn't need it much for local activities such as going to Falmouth Heights Beach, renting bikes for the Shining Sea bike path to Woods Hole, getting a morning coffee, grocery shopping at upscale Windfall Market, catching the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, and visiting downtown shops. Falmouth was a great location on the Cape as well because it allowed us to easily enjoy day trips to Boston, Plimouth Plantation, and Newport. We will be back! Thank you Amanda for sharing your little piece of the Cape with us!

Would Highly Recommend

My wife and three children spent a week at this wonderful home. Very clean and spacious, and had everything we needed. The short walk to the beach was fantastic. Working with Amanda was a pleasure. Look no further than this house--you won't be disappointed.

Fantastic Home!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 of my children spent just short of a week here early this summer. What an amazing home, quiet safe neighborhood, quick walk to the beach. The little wagon to pull the chairs was such a great help. We saw some bunnies, played some wiffle ball and cooked out on the grill every night! Kitchen ad everything we needed and then some. We cannot wait to come back!

Spent 5 days in this lovely home for a great Cape Cod vacation. Amanda and Seth's home was spotless! And so convenient to the beach, shopping, and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard was literally steps away! We slept peacefully on this quiet street. The beds were so comfortable!

We can't wait to stay there again. Hopefully make it an annual family retreat!
