Get ready to relax--this beloved home is fresh, light-filled and welcoming. Deceivingly large for a traditional Cape, it has plenty of room for a family or two.
Visitors comment on the size of the house: a generous living room for gathering, a dining room seating 10 with access to front and backyard decks, a separate wing of the house holding the large open kitchen with island, a separate dining area, and a family room with a TV and a small loft. Kids love climbing the ladder to this little fun spot in the eaves. The general living spaces are well separated from the sleeping quarters, which allows for quiet and privacy. A 1/2 bath off the family room area also helps keep activity away from the bedrooms.
This 6-bedroom sleeps ten, with flexible bed arrangements. All the bedrooms have air conditioners for the summer season, although the breezes off the marsh and ocean are perfect for sleeping and relaxing. Each bedroom is simply decorated, with shades and/or curtains and extra bedding for comfortable sleeping. Bed linens and towels are provided. Pack-n-play and wooden crib available. Renters provide baby linens. For toddlers, we have bed rails for three beds and three waterproof bed pads, upon request.
We don't claim to be fancy, but we do try to make families feel welcome. The house has Wifi and cable, a Wii console, and DVDs and a DVD player. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor games and books for kids and grownups. Every year we make improvements to the property; our returning renters enjoy and compliment our annual updates.
The backyard is very private, surrounded by trees and brush. Birdwatchers, sunbathers and grillers enjoy the space. A large deck overlooks a tree-filled, sun-dappled space. The outdoor shower is a pleasure. Front and side decks also provide outdoor space to enjoy the sun and breezes. Front and back driveways easily provide parking for 4-6 cars, or a boat. (Town boat access is next to Keyes Beach, 4/10 mile from the house).
***Barnstable Beach Pass included covers parking fees at the 17 local beaches*** Walking to the beach is easy with our beach wagon, which can help carry the beach umbrellas, coolers, beach chairs & toys, and beach towels we provide.
Sorry, no smoking or pets.
