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.

Parking Pass to all Barnstable beaches including Dowses Beach, Craigville Beach and Joshua's Pond. Fresh sheets, pool and bath towels and propane gas are provided. The home offers WiFi, Cable, 2 DVD players, Wii, and local phone service.

The over-sized 1-car attached garage has been converted into a well-equipped game room with convertible pool, air-hockey, ping-pong table and a foos-ball table for rainy day entertainment. There is an extra refrigerator in the garage for overflow groceries.

Great house, great location, great owners!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very clean and nicely decorated, it’s incredibly comfortable and stocked with anything you might need including entertainment for all age groups.

Our families had an amazing stay in this lovely home and even though the weather didn’t cooperate it didn’t stop the kids from enjoying the heated pool. Julie has thought of everything and is extremely responsive to answer any questions you may have. The blue binder is a godsend and a wealth of information!

We definitely plan on making this a yearly trip :)

Just perfect...once again a 5 star!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful house on Easter weekend for a second year in a row. Lovely Osterville neighborhood, walking distance to the beach and nearby shops. This house offers everything you need for a family or friends getaway. Beautifully furnished, very comfortable and absolutly spotless. Communication is always fast and so easy with the owner.

Thank you Julie for renting us again your lovely house. We'll come back next year for sure.

Perfect house for a 2 family trip

  • 5 of 5

The house is nicely located, at a walking distance to the center with everything you might look for, and close enough to the beach so that the kids can ride their bikes.

But in fact they would choose not to ever leave the house with its heated pool and all the games they could dream of. The house is nicely decorated, very comfortable and stocked with anything you might need. Julie, the owner, made sure we had all the information we needed and everything in the house is very well organized so that you feel at home right away. I definitely recommend this house for any large family trip.

Winter Family Holiday

  • 5 of 5

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.
