Wonderful Osterville location with a private heated pool. This 4 bedroom, 2 full bath home is in pristine condition and has a wonderful open floor plan. It has central a/c, a new, stylishly appointed kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, gleaming new hardwood floors, skylights, a fireplace and multiple, separate living spaces perfect for families with children. The large, private backyard has a heated, in-ground, fenced-in swimming pool, brick patio with a new Weber gas grill, and outdoor shower. It is about a half mile to beautiful Dowses Beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Osterville.

The first floor has two separate living spaces, including a large combination family room/dining room with new upholstered furniture, a large flat-screen HDTV, and large dining table that comfortably seats 6-8. The second living space is open to the new kitchen, and includes a fireplace, new upholstered furniture and seating for 10 at an over-sized breakfast bar and a custom built banquet. Also on the first floor are 2 bedrooms and a newly renovated full bath, including one with a king bed and another with a queen bed.

On the second floor are 2 additional bedrooms, a newly renovated full bath and another large family room, which includes a new sectional with a queen size pull-out sleeper. The bedrooms include one with three twin size beds (two twins and a roll away trundle) and another with a queen size bed.

The home offers 2 large TVs, a Bose Soundlink, WiFi, Cable with DVR service, 2 DVD players, and local phone service.

The house is very toddler-friendly, offering one full-size crib with crib sheets, one pack-n-play, one tension operated baby gate, one hand-held video monitor, various children's books and movies, and a booster seat.

Fresh linens are provided.

Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I rented the house for a girl's weekend in the off-season, but could easily see how much fun it would be to spend a week together in Osterville over the summer. Close to town and the beaches, the house is tucked in a quiet neighborhood making you feel as though you are truly a resident in the local community. Not that we needed this, but there was plenty of room to spread out and every basic need was thought of -- from a fully supplied kitchen to games and other amenities. It was easy to forget you were in a rental in this home away from home!

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

The owner is incredibly responsive and helpful. The updated living spaces are very comfortable (literally 3 living rooms) bedrooms are well appointed. The kids loved the pool even with rainy cool weather (Julie was gracious to keep the pool open and heated beyond her scheduled close date!) Can't ask for more, just down the street from the beach and around the corner from 2 private golf courses and the downtown village. No need to keep looking! We will be back.

Fantastic property with pool. Wonderful vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This house is a perfect place to vacation with friends and family. It has everything you need for a relaxing visit. The house is well furnished, very clean and well maintained. Although our group did not include children, there is an amazing selection of supplies and games. The kitchen has all the equipment most cooks would need. There are three separate living areas which gives everyone plenty of room as well as several eating areas. The outdoor space is terrific with a gas grill, patio, nice yard and a spectacular pool. The location is ideal because it's a 15 minute walk to Dowses Beach and the village of Osterville. The owners are very quick to respond to every question and concern. This our second year and recommend it without reservation.

A gem in Osterville

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for a week at the end of August and, simply put, we had the best time ever of any rental on the Cape to date. The house is impeccably furnished. Julie and Dave clearly know what families need because the house was equipped with anything we could have possibly desired (video monitor and crib, plastic plates, cups and utensils, and even air hockey and pool tables!). The heated (and gated!) pool was fantastic -- my kids spent hours in the pool every day. Short walk to Dowses beach, which is a gem. The owners were extremely responsive and always available for questions or to make recommendations. We highly recommend staying here!

Another Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second year in a row we have stayed here and there is a reason why. The house, location and owners couldn't be better! House is well maintained and outfitted for everyone in mind from all the kitchen/BBQ/cooking needs to kids books/games/movies and plenty of sheets pool and beach towels. Julie and her husband have also spent a lot of time and effort compiling info of the local area (restaurants/activities/sites, etc) for those visiting from out of town. Having owned a vacation home in Osterville for years and having young kids, we can appreciate all that The Gesners have done/do to make this a seamless vacation for people like us now vacationing and looking for just the right place to stay. Their direct communication and willingness to make sure all goes well is very much appreciated. Thank you Julie for making another return trip to Osterville pleasant and memorable for our family!!

Superb house

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the house. Perfect for 2 families, especially with young children as the pool is fenced with a lock. Everything we could have wanted was already in the house and any requests we had we dealt were dealt by the owner immediately. We loved it!!
