Hyannis Port House Rental Photos and Description

6 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 10

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, 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.

About Dan & Lu

We are teachers, and spend many off-season weekends and a week each summer in the house ourselves. It is our family home, not just a rental property. Our five children spent summer time here, walking back and forth to the beach daily. They enjoyed the snack bar and shallow waters of the family-friendly Keyes Beach. Now that all the 'kids' are grown, we enjoy the house with them, their friends and our granddaughter. We eat out in Hyannis, and head out to many of the 17 beaches in Barnstable. Our favorites include Keyes, Covell, and Dowse's. Whether the house is full of family or we are just the two of us, it suits our needs.

Dan & Lu purchased this house in 1992

Why Dan & Lu chose Barnstable

Dan visited the Cape as a boy, and wanted to provide that experience for his five children. After months of searching, this property proved ideal with its location and space. The house has become a home over years of work and improvements, and we enjoy looking for ways to update the property every year.

What makes this house unique

This house so well-located, between town and beach. There is always something to do nearby, or if we wish to travel up the Cape, a day trip is an easy adventure. When we spend time in the house, we enjoy the backyard view of tall oaks and listening to the birds. From the backyard and the second floor, the view of sunrise over the marsh is quite calming. When the house is full of our large family, there's space for all, and as our granddaughter comes to enjoy the house and beach, we are delighted to share it with her. In particular, we look forward to when she is old enough to climb into the loft in the family room and enjoy it as her mom, aunt and uncles did in their youth. Hanging out in the kitchen and family room together and then sharing a meal at the big round dining table is one of our family joys. Playing charades in the living room has been family tradition, as is house-wide hide-and-seek. We've mentioned the nearby beach, and the stroll to it is wonderful any time of year.

Wonderful Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Very nice home and very well appointed. Wonderful living spaces, bedrooms comfortable and convenient. Set up convenient for families with different aged children. We very much enjoyed eating on the deck in the evening as well as socializing on other porches and in outdoor areas . The kitchen area was very efficiently laid out, and the kitchen was well stocked with appliances, dishes, pots and pans. It was also very nice to have beach items provided.

The Hyannis area provided good beach choices, and being able to walk to the beach was great. All in all we had a very nice week at a good location. We would recommend this property to friends and family.

Another Great Year!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year our family of 8 have stayed at Dan and Lu's beautiful home. The one large bedroom upstairs was split into two rooms and they looked great. It afforded much more privacy. Their home is always clean and neat and has wonderful cross breezes to cool many of the rooms. They have air conditioners in each of the bedrooms. We love the fact that there are two seating for the kids to play and another one for grownups, each with a TV. There is plenty of room in each of these areas for the whole family as well. They have toys for the kids too! Dan and Lu make sure you have staples in the kitchen and bathroom to begin your stay. As a welcome gift they left us Cape Cod Taffy...yum...and Creamery Ice Cream...the best we have ever had. There are several outdoor areas to sit and relax. We used the BBQ on two evenings. Their home is conveniently located to restaurants and Main Street and beaches, at the most a 5 minute drive. You could walk to the beach on Sea Street. They always leave a beach pass for access to Barnstable Beaches. You can purchase additional beach passes if you need too. Dan and Lu supply beach chairs, boogie boards, jug, coolers and towels. I highly recommend their rental. We have already booked our stay for next year!

Perfect in every way, they have thought of everything needed to enjoy a week in he Cape!!

  • 5 of 5

This lovely cape house was perfect for our dance family to enjoy a week in the Cape. There was plenty of room for the multiple families to have their own space but it was great to share the common areas to give the kids a place play and everyone to hang out together. Being so close to the beach was great and allowed the kids to still enjoy their afternoons after dancing. All the included amenities made it perfect because we had to pack so much stuff for dance it was nice not to have to bring beach stuff, linens and extra kitchen items. We had a great time, were close to everything and everyone just loved this house!!! Thank you for sharing your home for others to really be able to enjoy the feeling of the Cape and not have to stay coupes up in a hotel room.

Car: recommended

Great location with easy access to town and beach. Hyannis, the main town on Cape Cod, has an airport, bus & train service, ferries to the islands, restaurants, cinema, mall and shops. Main Street is a mile from our house, yet the house feels private and close to the shore. Two beaches are walking distance, and three others are short car rides away. We easily travel up and down the Cape from our house.
