Hyannis hosts a variety of attractions including Craigville Beach, Kalmus Beach, Orrin Keyes Beach, Veterans Beach, JFK Memorial, John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum, golf courses, Cape Cod Central Railroad, and Hyannis Whale Watcher Cruises.

The Hyannis Youth and Community Center (which is just over a mile away from the house) has an ice skating rink, a full size NBA regulation basketball court, volleyball, tennis, Ping-Pong, Pool Tables, Air Hockey, Foosball, Wii Room with 4 stations, Computer Lab with 8 stations, Gymnasium, a Teen Center and cafe!

Hyannis is located in the mid cape area so it is a good choice for those who want to be centrally located and enjoy a bit of everything the Cape has to offer in an upbeat, popular location.

A Slice of Heaven on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We vacation. We travel. The difference for us has always been that vacations are for relaxing and regrouping as a family. Our time this week at the "Compound" has been a true vacation. Exploring in the rain. Napping by the sea. Dining alfresco out back. Individual snapshots that combined will bring smiles to our faces for years to come...and beckon us back again.

What a fantastic time we had...and to have the amazing good fortune to interact with such wonderful and generous owners, indeed a blessing!

Until such time, may the living God bless this home and all who dwell within.

Jack, Lisa and family

Fav. eats: Black Cat, Columbo's and Katie's Ice Cream

Hyannisport is home to the Kennedy Family. Our house is perfectly located at the end of a quiet street for privacy and close to everything within walking distance ( beaches, village, restaurants, golf course, harbor cruises...). The house feels like you are 'away from it all', as you enjoy the large surrounding lush lawn in the back, and from the front yard can look out at glimpses of a peaceful body of water, and yet you are incredibly close to so many things that will help keep your family entertained during your well earned vacation. The town of Hyannis has world renowned golf courses and spectacular themed miniture golf courses, a huge variety of restaurants, beaches, and movie theaters.
