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 a foos-ball table and a combination 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 king bedroom with en-suite access to the shared bath. The second bedroom is very large and doubles as an additional hang-out space. It has a set of twin bunk beds, a roll-away twin trundle, a new queen sleeper sofa with a comfortable memory foam mattress, a new 30' flat screen TV with cable, a DVD player and lots of toys/games/movies for children and adults. 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, two tension operated baby gates, 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.

About Julie and Dave Gesner

We live outside of Boston with our two children. We love to travel, ski, surf and hang at the beach and pool. While incredibly busy as two full-time working parents, we try to enjoy our life to the fullest with as much vacation time as we can take!

Julie and Dave Gesner purchased this house in 2014

Why Julie and Dave Gesner chose Osterville

We chose Osterville because it is a short 1.5 hour drive from our primary home and Boston. We chose the Wianno area of Osterville because it is a short walk to either the beautiful village of Osterville or the warm waters of Dowses Beach. We chose this house specifically for the kid-friendly location at the end of a quiet dead-end street and it's amazing back-yard. We wanted to be able to ride bikes on the street and relax by the the heated pool after a day at the beach and also have room to BBQ, play yard games and throw a baseball. We love to entertain and this is the perfect home to do so.

We rented this home for a sweet sixteen birthday weekend for my daughter and her friends. The home was in perfect working order, spacious and extremely clean. We are planning on renting this home again this summer.

Memorable Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our visit to Cape Cod and our stay at this lovely home. This was a special family trip with the Grandparents, including 7 adults and 3 very young children. The photos depict this home accurately without surprises. It did not disappoint! It was pleasantly decorated and clean.The kitchen was well stocked with plastic dishes for kids and pretty much everything you needed. We cooked most of our own food so having an extra refrigerator in the garage was great after a big Costco run on our way out of Boston. Also the washer and dryer were very nice and a must for our family. It was wonderful having a crib, pack and play, indoor, outdoor and pool toys for the kids. The heated pool was a huge hit with all of us especially since the weather was much cooler than expected. Our 3 yr old grand daughter was distraught that she couldn't go to the pool the morning we left! There are plenty of nice pool towels and little did we know how great it was to have an outdoor shower. Julie was responsive, friendly, organized and helpful. We will always cherish our visit to Cape Cod and out time in this special home. Thank you!

The Perfect Setup!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for a wonderful week on the Cape! The house offered plenty of space for six adults and five kids and the heated pool was enjoyed morning, noon, and night by all! There were toys in the playroom for the kids, bikes for our use in the garage and the pingpong/air-hockey table was an awesome bonus. The front yard was the perfect spot for our nightly wiffle ball game! We loved that there was plenty of seating both inside and outside for meals and room in the kitchen for more than one cook to prep meals. Osterville is a charming village with great shops and the perfect beach. We had a blast! Thank you!
