About Owners Rich and Martine Palanza

My husband Rich and I have lived in Mansfield all our lives. From 1979 Rich spent most of his summers at his parents Pocassett beach house, which we visited all the time when our older children were little. But as our family grew we realized we needed a space of our own.

Owners Rich and Martine Palanza purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Owners Rich and Martine Palanza chose Mashpee

Uncle Henry was only the second property we looked at on Cape Cod in January of 2012. This cottage was a sight to see. Boy did you need vision and that is exactly what my husband had. He gave life to our dreams and hours of endless work to make this tare-down an adorable cottage and a perfect family getaway. We love escaping to the sea side where life at the cottage is simple.

What makes this cottage unique

location location, location. From the moment we walked through this cottage. We saw something special that could be achieved. Rich and I Still can't believe we found this vacation house a simple walk to a beautiful beach and breathtaking ocean views. This cottage is home away from home. We embrace such a simpler life here at the beach. It doesn't take hours to clean the cottage. The kids don't need iphones, video games, ipads etc, they play bocce, tetherball in the yard or cards and boardgames on the porch. They ride bikes and play in the sand at the beach and swim endlessly in the ocean or take endless walks to the Market place.

Laundry is minimal, the kids are in bathing suits 80% of the time. What a joy it is to experience the simple pleasure of life here at Popponesset. The friends we have made are wonderful people. You will love it here. The safe community, lots of activities and new friends who all look out for eachothers kids, are what make this location such a unique, special and memorable place to vacation. We simply love Poppy time.

the perfect little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Martine and Rich have a wonderful home just a short walk from the beach. The hosts we're quick to respond to any questions. The house was clean and really felt like a home away from home. Would absolutely recommend for a cape getaway!

Thumbs Up, Again!

  • 5 of 5

As in the past years that we have been fortunate in renting this vacation property from Rich and Martine, we found this sweet home as we had before...

Clean, bright, welcoming, cozy and extremely well appointed. The owners go above and beyond to make certain that their visitors are comfortable and provided for.

Popponesset has a lot to offer for families as well as couples looking for quality time to spend together. It's a great area for walking, jogging, swimming, boating, fishing, golfing, dining out, shopping, kids activities, and just plain quiet relaxation.

Every summer for the past 60 years Popponesset has been a tradition in this family. We have rented at numerous locations and all family members agree that Rich and Martine's home in Popponesset is "awesome!"

We are looking forward to our 2017 Popponesset vacation at the Palanza's!

Great place. We love it here!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love 52 Uncle Henry! This was our second year staying here. The cottage (it actually feels more like a house)is so bright and clean with great nautical decorations throughout. It is a great place for kids with the bocce court, ladder ball, tether ball and fire pit in the backyard. The outdoor shower is the best! I don't think we used the indoor shower once! Having a washing machine and dryer was a HUGE benefit as well. The best part is it is only a 2 minute walk to the beach. We love this place and would definitely stay here again. Thank you Palanza Family!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is cute clean and conveniently located. A very short walk to a wonderful beach and to the marketplace. The cottage is clean and well taken care of and has many inside and outside games for the family. We loved spending time in the backyard, playing bocce and enjoying smores at the fire pit. A few of the days we were there were 90 degrees and the house was very warm. The couple of fans were not enough to cool things down at night. Other than that unusual situation, everything was very nice and we would love to return!

Great week at Poppy!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at the beach. The house was exactly as advertised...nicely furnished (very beachy) and a short walk to a private beach. We loved the outdoor space behind the house (particularly the shower!). The beach was very quiet during the week, but started to get busier over the weekend. We loved that we could walk to the Popponesset Market as well.

Martine was very responsive to questions and was always reachable throughout the week. I mentioned when we were booking that we were planning to celebrate my mother-in-law's 60th birthday while we were there and she was so thoughtful that she left a bottle of wine for her with a Happy Birthday label...very thoughtful! We would highly recommend the property and will definitely consider coming back in the future.
