The 5 bedroom, 3 full bath house is walking distance to Dowses Beach and Osterville Village and has been fully renovated for the 2015 season 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.

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.

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 sofa that pulls out into a sleeper, a new 30' flat screen TV with Cable & a DVD player and lots of adult and children's toys/games/movies.

average rating of 5.0 based on 24 reviews

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

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:-)

Great home for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay in Cape Cod and thank good for memories! The home is everything all the other reviewers have stated. The location is at the end of a quiet tree lined cul de sac right next to an almost secret path to town. The house is beautifully laid out and furnished and has everything in the kitchen you could possible want.

Our three generations spend a week together every summer and had been visiting Sea Isle City for a number of years. We wanted to explore a different area this summer and our requirements were that the location is family oriented. The grandchildren are ages 4 to 10. We went to Dowses Beach the first day and it's a small protected beach. Parking can be an issue unless you go early or around 1 pm. We walked there as well and a beach tag is not necessary for walking.

Most activities were 15 to 20 minutes away. Hyannis was a popular spot for us with its restaurants and boating activities. What was always a hit with the family was the pool in the yard. The back yard is big! It's fenced in and has lots of space for the kids to run around. We also ate outside every time we didn't go out for dinner. There are two patio tables and it's nicely shaded in the evening.

As other reviewers have said, Julie is most helpful. She checked in with us to make sure all was well. If you're looking for a place for relaxation in a wonderful area close to lots of attractions, this home is the place to go! It felt like home immediately for us.

Great Cape Escape

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this rental. We had 12 people - 6 adults and 6 kids ages 6 to 16. The location was great - walking distance to the adorable town of Osterville and easy driving distance to anywhere else on the Cape. The house was fully equipped and fit all of our needs. The owners provided a very detailed book of things to do and know about the area. I highly recommend this VRBO rental.
