Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom + Outdoor Shower, walk to Beach and Village

This is one half of a Cape-Style side-by-side duplex house located at end of dead end street just a 3-minute walk to the beach! First floor has 2 bedrooms, kitchen, living room with cable TV, full bath, and laundry. BR 1 has full bed, BR 2 has two twins. Second floor is one large open room with 4 twin beds, television with vcr/dvd and sitting area, plus 1/2 bath. Very comfortable for 2 families or one large or extended family. The unit has its own private backyard with large picnic table, bbq grill, outdoor shower and shed. Kitchen is fully equipped and we have a selection of games and movies for entertainment. But the best part about this property is its location. It is located at end of quiet dead end street only .2 mile from Surf Drive Beach. Surf Drive Beach is one of Falmouth's nicest longest beaches, on the route of the Falmouth Road Race. Fully staffed with lifeguards and equipped with changing rooms and showers. Great concession stand serving snacks and lunch. When you're done with the beach, take a 10 minute walk along picturesque Shore Road into the Village and get an ice cream, a drink or dinner at any of the many restaurants in this quaint historic village. Grab breakfast in the morning at the diner or croissants from the bakery. Family friendly films shown on the common weekly at dusk. Or attend the weekly outdoor concert on the green. Arrange for a whale watch or excursion to Martha's Vineyard from the harbour, less than one mile from this property. If you like to bike, the property is right around the corner from the Shining Sea Bikepath, a 12 mile bike path running from Woods Hole to North Falmouth. The portion between our property and Woods Hole is all along the ocean. If you feel like taking a drive, head out to any of the many national seashore beaches of Cape Cod. This property is close to everything and will be enjoyed by beach lovers, shoppers, families with small children, families with teenagers, and extended families of all configurations.

About Owner/Manager

We bought this property after looking around for a long time for a place we could enjoy with our teenaged children. We live in Massachusetts and it is close enough for us to enjoy on weekends. We fell in love with Falmouth Village and the beach and feel so fortunate to have found such a perfect spot.

Owner/Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner/Manager chose Cape Cod

Every town on the Cape has a slightly different feel, and we've enjoyed many of them over the years. When it came time to buy a place, we knew we wanted to be in Falmouth and near Falmouth Village. The fact that we found a place that is also so close to the beach was just fabulous luck!

Quaint Cape Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Labor Day weekend and got rained in for most of our stay. This was a wonderful place to be rained into. Plenty of space in the living room to cozy up in and right near downtown Falmouth so we could go shopping/explore. A minute walk to the beach. Clean and well decorated. The owner is a lovely woman who was happy to answer any questions we had. Definitely would recommend.

A wonderful week away!

  • 5 of 5

This was a really good find for my family and me. Clean and cute with super-helpful owners. They really wanted us to have an enjoyable week away and we did. The house had everything we needed including beach toys and information about the area. Very short walk to the beach but also great access to the cute downtown area. The owner put us in contact with the rental agency for the other half of the duplex so we rented both properties and it was fantastic. We had two families in this unit and my parents and another family next door. It worked out really well. Most days we enjoyed going to the beach, town, or Woods Hole during the day and then came back, took outdoor showers, and had the kids play in the yards while someone grilled. We had dinner at the picnic table every night. After dinner we could take a nice walk through the quiet neighborhood back to the beach or take a short drive (or even walk) to the town center. I enjoyed coffee on the little deck in the mornings, too. The unit was great but the owners made it even better. I would definitely stay here again!

Perfect location and property in Falmouth, Ma.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely Cape Cod home is in a prime location in Falmouth. Situated at the end of a Cul de Sac, the house and yard offer comfort, privacy and easy walking/biking access to both the beach and to town.

From this lovely home it is just a short five minute walk to the beach or a ten minute walk to downtown. Not only is the location superb, the house is very clean and well stocked with all the equipment you need to make your vacation comfortable and fun. There are plenty of very comfortable beds, a washer & dryer, all the kitchen necessities, a very nice TV, nice, comfortable furniture and outdoor games, picnic table, lovely patio and the fantastic outdoor shower. We did not want for anything and will definitely rent this property again and again. This is a quiet area with a nice mixture of other renters and full time owner occupants and we found others in the area to be very friendly and welcoming.

The owners of this home are very considerate, providing bikes, games and plenty of outside seating. It was the perfect spot for us and we are going back next summer!

Fantastic Location!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house. Within waking distance to town and beach. The house was clean and had everything we needed. You do have to get your own linens, but that wasn't a big deal. The owners were very nice and communication was great. I would definitely rent this house again. Thanks for an awesome vacation!
