Cape Cod House Rental Photos and Description

Best Location In Oyster Harbors On Private Beachfront Estate With Deepwater Dock

Welcome to what we affectionately refer to as “The Black Pearl”, a vintage home located at one of the Cape's most coveted locations in Oyster Harbors! This charming cape home is in the prime location facing Sampson’s Island, Cotuit Bay, and Martha’s Vineyard. Beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and prevailing winds keep the temperature just perfect and the bugs afar. Deep water dock with access to fast water in minutes. Boat available for qualified boaters. Six bedrooms of which three are water front. (Beds for 12: 1 king, 1 queen, 2 full, and 4 twins). Three full baths, 1 half bath and outside shower.

About the Location: Oyster Harbors is a private island that is only accessible to its residents, club members or registered guests. Only the owners or house managers can register guests for access. Admittance is extremely exclusive, time and date sensitive. Please inform house manager or owners of any guests that will be going to the residence during the rental stay.

About the Home: The Black Pearl is a vintage home that will be under renovation during the winter months for the next several years updating the physical condition of the property. While under renovation, the rental price cannot be beat and is below market based upon the home's coveted location. Guests will enjoy the beautiful sunrise, sunset, prevailing winds and sights of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket Sound from nearly every vista.

Though at first appearance the house is a bit timeworn, the charm of the home will overshadow its tattered exterior. The furnishing inside are impeccably maintained, in pristine condition and immaculate All linens are freshly pressed with quality duvets and pillows.

About Mary Kariotis

Having grown up spending summers on Cape Cod, it was almost automatic to bring my California wife and family to the Cape for summer vacations. We fell in love with the privacy and unsurpassed location of this quintessential Cape Cod home and are always happy to share it with others.

Get lost with the views, relax in a rocker on the porch, and watch your life slow down and appreciate life's simple pleasures and natural beauty.

Beautiful property with amazing waterfront views & incredibly welcoming hosts!

  • 5 of 5

My company hosted a leadership offsite at this beautiful home on Oyster Harbors. Having never been to the property before, I wasn't sure what to expect, but it took my breath away! It had it's own private waterfront with a gorgeous patio to sit and take in the scenery. The house was charming & was perfect for hosting our group of 8, even if it could easily accommodated more. Our hosts could not have been more gracious and charming, arranging everything from catering to housekeeping at our request. We truly felt like royalty! The highlight of the trip was definitely the yacht ride to Martha's Vineyard with our lovely hosts, who arranged bike rentals & suggested we dine at a lovely restaurant. Our team had a beautiful and productive time & we still can't stop smiling when we think about it. Thanks for everything Mary & Mak -- you truly made this trip unforgettable & we can't wait to come back!
