About the property

Seaside Living At Your Door. Discounted off-Season Rates

This newly renovated 2017, directly oceanfront home, with accompanying two newly renovated 2016 guest cottages offers it's vacationers the unique experience of seaside living at your doorstep. It is a perfect setting for getting together with families and friends with closeness and privacy. The property accommodates 16 among the three cottages. Breath-taking views of Nantucket Sound on a safe, sandy, warm water beach highlight this rental which includes 3 houses, with 7 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms and 3 kitchens. Newly installed central air conditioning and heat are provided in all three cottages for your comfort. Enjoy the luxury and relaxation of living by the ocean's edge, smelling the salt air, feeling the southerly breezes, bathing in the warm salt water, catching a fish from the jetties, or collecting shells at low tide. Or, you can just sit and watch the waves and the boats sail by.

This property is like a rare gem. The main house, with two new full baths, overlooks the ocean. The house has an ocean view from the living room, enclosed sun porch, fully equipped kitchen with new stainless appliances, and 3 bedrooms. Use our private stairway to step down to your own beach. The 2 adjacent cottages have ocean views from the combination great room, kitchen, and dining areas; and each feature wood floors, 2 bedrooms, and a full bath with tub and shower.

The compound has 5 additional sleep sofas (one queen and four twins) located in the great rooms of the 3 houses for any overnight guests.

This family friendly property is ideal for ocean front dining on the stone patio, or swimming and water sports on the beach. No need to drive or walk any distance as you are at the beach! Plenty of additional activities available when you can tear yourself away from our beach such as clothes shopping, grocery stores, restaurants, children's entertainment, theaters, golf, biking, and local fishing charter boats are all nearby. Teach your children how to cast for Blues and Striped Bass from your beach, or take the ferry to visit nearby Monomoy Nature Preserve in Chatham or the Islands of Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard on a day trip.

Professionally cleaned and caringly maintained by our on call staff for your carefree enjoyment. Newly renovated and nautically decorated with sensitivity to the unique charm of Cape Cod's South Beach.

The main house has wood floors throughout with a first floor, a granite kitchen with Island seating for three, stainless appliances, and open dining, and living rooms. The living area opens onto the Nantucket Porch with a large glass slider, doubling the size of the living room for ease in entertaining. The Nantucket Porch has a wicker lounge set and a matching dining set, great for breakfast in the morning, watching the ocean, or playing cards at night with friends. There are three lovely decorated bedrooms upstairs, one bedroom has a queen bed, one has sets of twins, and the third bedroom has a full size bed (sleeps six total in bedrooms). There are two new full baths, one off the kitchen downstairs and one upstairs. There is also an outdoor shower so you can rinse off after swimming. There are plenty of decks and charcoal grills for outdoor entertaining.

Each of the additional two cottages can accommodate a family of five. Each cottage has wood floors, a full open kitchen with living and dining area, a full bath, two bedrooms, one bedroom has a queen bed, and the other bedroom a full bed with an above twin bunk bed (sleeps five total in bedrooms).

For additional overnight guests, the main house has a queen size sleep sofa in the living room. The cottages have two twin size sleep sofas in the great rooms.

We supply sheets, pillow cases, bedspreads, blankets, and pillows. We do not supply towels, but they can be rented from a recommended linen service that delivers and picks up at the houses. The kitchens are fully appliances with gourmet cookware and plenty of dinnerware for barbecues and entertaining. Parking is available for six cars maximum.

Ocean front three bedroom house is available separately off season for a three night minimum. Call owner for rates.

About Adele

Our family has owned this fully renovated property since 1957 and have used it as a family compound and for rentals for the past 47 years. We have provided a memorable family vacation to generations of families who come back to us year after year.

Adele purchased this house in 1957

Why Adele chose Dennis

The property is direct oceanfront, no need to walk any distance to the beach. The property was recently totally renovated and has the crisp and clean look of a seaside home with colors of blue, grey, and white hues, and natural wood, decorated with sensitivity to the nautical charm of Cape Cod's South Coast.

What makes this house unique

The property is directly ocean front with views from all three cottages. Lovely white sandy beach with warm water, safe for children and water sports. You can fish from the beach or rent a local charter boat nearby at Bass River or Herring River, a few miles away. Vacation together with friends or family but keep some privacy in the three separate and fully independent adjacent cottages.

Owner's Response: Thank you. It was a pleasure to have you return year after year and enjoy the property. Best of luck in your search for a smaller rental than can accommodate your now downsized family. Please let me know if you need a reference, you and your family were wonderful!

Perfect for a large group with kids

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing 50th anniversary celebration for my parents with lots of grandkids. The compound was perfect so everyone could have some private space. We loved the private beach, the large outdoor space, and the quiet evenings. Adele was very easy to work with!

Thank you for everything!

Excellent option for anyone - but esp. for larger groups

  • 5 of 5

We had a larger group gathering for 5 days in June, and we thoroughly enjoyed the stay and were impressed with the property. We felt this place was particularly ideal for the following reasons: (1) main house plus two separate cabins - great for spreading out families and having some space if need to rest/work/relax; (2) private beach on the water - that might seem like an obvious plus but we weren't sure how great it would be ... but it was - kids loved jumping in the waves in particular; (3) flexibility to stay less than a full week; (4) very responsive and helpful owner, Adele; and (5) Dennisport is an excellent central Cape location with much around it. We sure hope to return someday.

All 3 buildings were clean and comfortable, and the beach right at your door step was the best!

  • 5 of 5

this setting was perfect for our special family celebration! My husband and I stayed in the main house with our children and their spouses. All three bedrooms had water views and falling asleep listening to the waves was the best!

Our grandchildren and their families stayed in the cottages in back. This worked out well when the little ones needed some quiet time.

The private beach was beautiful and right down the stairs! I was really happy we brought a gate to put at the top of the stairs for safety and peace of mind. There were plenty of sand chairs and the outside shower with hot and cold water was a blessing to get most of the sand off, but there were no walls for privacy.

Each room in the main house was very nice. We did a lot of cooking. The kitchen was new and nice, but a little small with our gang. We were glad to have the nice picnic tables outside. We were all able to sit and eat together.

We had a great week and would recommend this site!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great day time despite lousy weather. Owner communicated everything and made herself available for any questions. I was informed linens were provided but to bring own towels, and didn't realize that also meant hand towels. Other than that, no issue and would rebook!

Owner's Response: Sorry about some rain during your stay. I always hope for bright sunny days. As I state on the site and by my contract I do not supply any towels for my renters, but I do give renters the names of two local agencies that rent towels online and deliver and pick up at the houses. They also rent strollers, cribs, water sports equipment, bikes, etc. I do supply all bedding including sheets, pillow cases, bedspreads, and blankets, etc.. So pleased you enjoyed the houses and their most recent renovations and our location and sandy ocean beach at your doorstep. I take much pride in the care and maintenance of the property and work hard to provide my renters the very best accommodations. So glad you enjoyed your time at the property with your family. Please come back again soon.

Amazing home with a spectacular view....PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5

This property was even better in person than the pictures would show. When we arrived, we were immediately drawn to the yard and the view. You can't get a better one! We were immediately at peace. The sounds of the waves, the view with occasional boats drifting by, the breeze off the ocean....all were just incredible. Our family get together could not have gone better. And the location is even better when you consider how close you are to activities, restaurants, shops.....but to be honest, we hardly wanted to leave the yard and the beach! The landscaping of the yard also made the location feel very private, yet we could meet and greet the neighbors easily if we wanted to. Completely enjoyable.

The layout of the compound was also something to note. It was nice to have three separate homes, as it allowed for a bit of quiet time for those who needed a break. Having all that living area was ideal. The kitchen in the main house is open to the living room so that whoever was cooking was never left out of the conversations.

In short, our family group of two senior citizens, six middle-aged adults and their adult children all had the perfect space, location, and setup at this vacation rental. The owner of the property, Adele, provided everything we needed, from a fully-stocked kitchen to information about things to do and places to go in the area. We never had any questions or concerns during our stay as everything was just perfect. We couldn't recommend this place enough, but hope that we can come back and make this an annual was that good!
