About the property

5 Bedroom/3 Baths (Sleeps 15-17)

Gorgeous completely renovated cape cod home with a new private heated salt water pool at the end of quiet dead-end street in the Wianno area. The 5 bedroom, 3 full bath house is walking distance to Dowses Beach and Osterville Village and has been fully renovated (2015) with a wonderful open floor plan. The new kitchen has beautiful light birch cabinets, gleaming white quartz counters, gorgeous blue glass tiled back-splash, and new stainless steel appliances. This home also has central a/c, gleaming new hardwood floors, new upholstered furniture, and pottery barn and Ralph Lauren linens. Enjoy a well-equipped games room for rainy day fun with foos-ball table and a ping-pong, pool and air-hockey table.

The private fenced backyard has a new salt water, heated, in-ground, swimming pool and a generous area for back-yard games. The patio has a new Weber gas grill and generous seating for outdoor dining. There is additional seating around the pool deck for lounging in the sun and back-yard entertaining. Shower off the beach sand at the end of day in the lovely custom mahogany and cedar outdoor shower.

This house is situated on a large 1/2 acre lot in a quiet, family friendly area about 1/2 mile to Dowses Beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound, and a short stroll to the shops and restaurants of Osterville Village. Craigville Beach is also about 2 miles away.

The first floor includes a large combination family room/dining room/kitchen, with plenty of seating in beautiful new upholstered furniture, a new 42” flat-screen HDTV, a large custom banquet with a maple trestle table and bench that comfortably seats 8. The family room is open to the new kitchen with seating for an additional 4-5 at an over-sized breakfast bar. Also on the first floor are 2 generous bedrooms, including a first floor Master Bedroom with a king bed with en-suite access to the shared bath. The second bedroom is very large and doubles as an additional hang-out space and bedroom. It has a set of twin bunk beds, a roll-away twin trundle, a new sofa that pulls out into a queen sleeper with a comfortable memory foam mattress, a new 30' flat screen TV with Cable & a DVD player and lots of adult and children's toys/games/movies. Both bedrooms share a newly renovated full bath.

On the second floor are 3 additional bedrooms. The large Master Bedroom has a king bed, a full-size crib and a lovely new private en-suite bath with a double vanity. The second bedroom has two double beds with twin roll-away trundle beds. The third bedroom has a queen bed and en-suite access to the large new shared hall bathroom.

The house is very toddler-friendly, offering one full-size crib with crib sheets, an additional pack-n-play, one tension operated baby gate, one hand-held video monitor, various children's books and movies, and a booster seat. There are also three size 16" wheel bikes for children (ages 4-6). Please bring your children's helmets.

Winter Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

Our family of 8 adults & 2 children stayed at this beautiful property in late January 2017. We were visiting local family in the Osterville area. This lovely property was clean, well stocked with dishes, towels, kids toys, a crib & a very detailed information sheet. Julie was a pleasure to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. Only wish we could have used the pool!

Highly recommend this property and owner!

A Perfect Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

This lovely home provided a much needed uninterrupted family Thanksgiving celebration. Julie and David have thought of everything you might want during a get away. The decor is beachy and very comfortable. Time with our children and grandchildren is priceless. The amenities of this beautiful home kept us all entertained and provided wonderful memories.

I can't say enough about how great this house was for our family golf outing. We had a great time both inside and outside, with plenty of room in the common areas and the beautiful yard to catch up with each other after a day on the links. In addition, the owner was fantastic, checking in with us to make sure everything was ok and completely available to answer any questions. It was so refreshing to have someone so responsive and courteous as a contact person; in short, I have never had better customer service! I give this property my most enthusiastic recommendation, thanks again for a great stay!

Great place, convenient location and the owners are wonderful people to deal with.

  • 5 of 5

Our daughter recently married in Osterville and we rented the house for ten of our guests to spend the weekend and to a person they loved the home. To say that the house received rave reviews from everyone of them would be an understatement, I am just glad that I was able to convince them to leave.

Great house in a lovely neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this home for a quiet family weekend to celebrate my Mom's 90th birthday. We were 7 adults and the house was very spacious and comfortable for all of us. It was a beautiful Fall weekend and we fully enjoyed the heated pool, set at a perfect temperature of 82 degrees! My Mom is not very mobile, but she was able to sit outside on the patio and by the pool, and had a nice time. Some of us were able to walk around the beautiful neighborhood and beach areas. The house is perfectly set up for these types of events - plenty of room to sit together, play a game, or enjoy the ping pong table. The house has new bathrooms, kitchen, and is decorated beautifully. I would recommend this "homeaway" vacation to anyone. Thanks Julie for making this so easy and comfortable!!

Perfect Family or large group getaway

  • 5 of 5
Verified Stay

I'm very particular and have to give the Gesner's credit where due, this house is PERFECT! Right from the start they were responsive and helpful, providing a 90 page pdf providing info on the house, available services, the town, and things to do on the cape. Any questions I had were answered promptly and in detail, they were great.

This attention to detail carried through in the house which was extremely well cared for and perfectly laid out four our group of 8 adults and 2 small children. There were a ton of toys our 3 and 1 yr old had a blast with. The first floor bunk room is equipped with a TV which was good when the kids needed quiet time. All of the bedrooms were more than comfortable and well appointed - the master is huge with a nook that holds the crib, perfect! Bathrooms were well stocked with towels and plenty of extra linens were on hand as well. The kitchen had plenty of room for all to hang out, with the built in table fitting 8 adults (or sliding neatly out of the way by sliding into nooks built into the seat); 4 can sit at the island as well.

The backyard was huge, enough room for pickup soccer or football for the adults. It's all fenced in, and most importantly the pool is fenced seperately with a handle that pulls up about 4 ft off the ground - relatively child proof. The pool patio had lounge chairs, a four top table, and two sun umbrellas. The patio outside the house had two 6 top tables so one could easily be brought into the pool area if you wished. And to complete it all a spacious outdoor shower as well. The driveway will fit 4-5 cars.

The extras: the house had a ton of nice little extra touches: lobster cookware/tools/plates; wireless bose speaker; two TV's; the perfect glassware whatever your drink of choice may be; bikes for children in the garage, pool/ping pong/foosball in the garage; spare fridge in the garage; tons of pool floats and toys; Pool towels; washer/dryer;

The town of Osterville is quiet but has the essentials: a seafood spot, pastry shops, a nice restaurant, ice cream shop, and a handful of boutiques all a short walk or bike ride from the house. The neighborhoods were great to ride bikes through with many beautiful, well kept homes. Also a short walk/bike ride is a very tiny beach at the end of the road, this was perfect to take the kids for quick jaunts. Hyannis downtown, BJ's, supermarkets are about 20 minutes away.

All of this to say I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY reccomend this property!!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed your stay! We tried to think of everything one would appreciate in a home, especially while traveling with small children, and equipped our home accordingly. New toys are the best for entertaining the little people and the foosball table and pool/ping-pong/air-hockey table keep the older kids and adults in our group of friends and family entertained too:-) We love Osterville and Dowses Beach and so are happy you enjoyed the area as much as we do! Please come back and visit us again soon:-)
