About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, 1 King, 1 Queen, 1 Full, 4 Singles; Sleeps 10 Max

This house is perfect for the large family or the family that wants room to spread out. Central air, new appliances, upgrades everywhere including a huge screened-in porch. With 4 bedrooms, this house is great for 2 families. The beds have the highest quality matresses for a good night's sleep. Located in Dennis, the house is centrally located to reach all the ocean and bayside beaches that Dennis has to offer. Walk to Kelly's Bay beach or walk to the Johnny Kelley Recreation Area.

Fully fenced back yard for the kids and to keep your bikes, kayaks, and canoes secure. A screened porch is where you'll spend time recharging from a long day at the beach. 18-hole and mini golf courses are just a short drive. The Cape's extensive bike trails are right at your door step. The South Dennis location is just minutes from attractions in Yarmouth like Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf.

The Dennis beaches provide unlimited choices. Hit a different beach every day of the week!

Dennis has everything you will need for a nice family vacation with just the perfect Cape atmosphere that you are looking for.

Twice weekly in-yard trash pickup. House cleaning included. Security deposit required.

The updated kitchen has seating for 6. The tiled porch has dinner seating for 8. The outdoor has a big umbrella table that seats 8, the picnic table seats 6 plus another 4 at the small umbrella table.

The kitchen is well-stocked with new small appliances, new dishes, flatware, and utensils. The tiled countertop has plenty of room for meal preparation and the over-sized sink and dishwasher help with cleanup. The living room and kitchen have an open floor plan so the entire family can be together during meal prep time.

The living room is a relaxing room with family entertainment at your finger tips. Cable TV has expanded channels as well as premium movie channels (with parental lock code) and Smart TV for your Hulu, Netflix, Amazon, and other accounts. The LCD flatscreen is visible from both the living room and kitchen thanks to the open floor plan. The bookcase has a wide selection of DVD's for your enjoyment. The 5.1 surround sound system is perfectly balanced for the living room. There is also a collection of paperbacks for the beach or nightstand. The exposed pine beams and barnboard walls give the living room a relaxed comfortable feel.

While we all go on vacation to get away, most of us still want some comforts and some entertainment options. When nighttime entertainment means family movie night, this living room has what you need to keep everyone together. Watch the Disney channel or bring your own movies. Or watch your favorite on-line channels. Of course, there are also CD, iPod, and local radio station access on the 5.1 surround-sound receiver.

The house is equipped with high-speed wireless internet (Wifi).

The upstair's bedrooms are perfect a place to put the kids or to put an entire family. One of the rooms is oversized with a couch and plenty of floor space to just relax and hang out. This room has cable TV and a DVD player so that the kids & teens can watch their shows. It also has hookups for gaming consoles (PS3, etc). The other room has no TV.

The basement is unfinished but we have a nice seating area with an area carpet where the big kids and adults can play foosball and air hockey.

Kelley's Bay has a small beach, great for a walk or getting your feet wet but not the location for a beach-day. Enjoy skipping rocks after dinner or taking your kayaks on the water. If you don't have kayak of your own, they can be rented just down the road by the Bass River. The Dennis beaches are great and you also have options to travel to outer Cape beaches like those in Eastham, Truro, and Provincetown.

There is a small collection of beach toys and beach chairs for those who might be traveling from afar. There is also a pack & play playpen, baby swing, and a Graco high chair. We ask that the playpen be used only at the home, not the beach.

When the kids are done for the night, the adults can still relax on the huge screened and tiled porch. Wine and cheese, fishing tales, or reliving the shot of a lifetime on the 18th green; nothing beats time with friends or just time with your spouse as the cool air and candlelight brings the night to a close. There is also music on the porch for your enjoyment and ceiling fans to keep everyone cool.

We have a new washer and dryer, outdoor security system, and new central air conditioning.

This is a perfect family vacation home. Quiet neighborhood, walk to Kelley’s Bay. We’ve made every effort to make this home your oasis.

About Mark

We have lived in Connecticut all our lives and always enjoyed summer family vacations at the Cape. We were renters before our purchase in 2010. Before then, we were bumped out of 2 houses as our owners decided to retire to the Cape. Lisa and I (Mark) decided to take the plunge in 2010 so that we could have a place that we could enjoy and share, just like so many others owners had done for us. Someday we will retire to the Cape too, but that is not anytime soon.

Mark purchased this house in 2010

Why Mark chose South Dennis

Our renters just love this house and you will too! 2012 Renter Quote: 'We basically liked everything. The house was beautiful, the location was convenient. We would definitely stay again.' We wanted a place where we could invite friends and have plenty of room to live, enjoy, and relax. With 4 good-sized bedrooms and a basement game room, this house had what we wanted for us and for our rental friends. We have always loved the central Dennis houses because they have much better convenience and value for the dollar. We are not beachfront and we like that - we wanted quality at an affordable price and that translates to a fair rental rates for our friends and guests. We love that you have beach rights to access Kelley's Bay at the end of the street for fishing and kayaking.

What makes this house unique

This house has the best screened porch ever. 2012 Renter Quotes: 'We loved, loved, loved the porch as did everyone who visited us. What a marvelous addition to the house. We spent most of our inside time on the porch.' ( In the off-season we have glass walls on the porch.) Along with the big flat backyard, there is room for a big cookout and family recreation fun.

Great house, esp. the sun porch!

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property if you are looking for a clean house on a quiet street, close to beaches and shopping. The owner was very responsive from first inquiry and every step of the process! We spent a weekend in April there with our three adult children and their spouses...plenty of room for everyone. The sun porch was warm and comfortable, even in April, and we had most of our meals out there! Everything you could need for the kitchen was provided and all the information about the house was clearly laid out in a binder. Enjoyed every minute of it!

South Dennis Home

  • 5 of 5

Me any my family go to the Cape every summer and have stayed at many homes through the years.

We found this home to be very comfortable.

Mark has everything you need to enjoy his home. He is very well organized

with communicating by phone and email. We found the home in very good condition.

Location is very good if you have children and you want to visit Yartmouth (Rt 28) like we did

for children activities.

Also located a few miles from Route 6 if you want to go further east or west.

One of the nicest enclosed outdoor patio area with new outdoor furniture and tile floor we have seen!

Thank you!

Very Comfortable and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We had 10 people, 3 being children. The house was clean and spacious enough for all of us. We really enjoyed sitting in the enclosed porch chatting or playing games. I'm an early riser and I loved having my cup of coffe while reading a book out there. The backyard was great for our barbecue. The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed for cooking. The beds were comfortable as was the living room areas. In addition to the beach some of our favorite spots were the Sundae School and Nickerson State Park.

Great House

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property. This is close to the beaching, shopping and on a quiet street. The owner, Mark, is very responsive and ensures you have a great stay at his cozy home. The sun porch was great for a family get together. We look forward to staying there again later this year (hopefully) and next year.

Fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate home, great location, owner provided service above and beyond. Central Cape location with easy access to many great restaurants and beaches..... (we love Cahoun Hollow Beach which isnt in Dennis, but worth the drive) Favorite Dennis beaches are Mayflower and Chapin. And ScargoCafe for food..... and of course, my favorite, Petersons Market !!!
