Description

Blue Skies on the Half Shell is a one-of-a-kind cottage set in a perfect location just 75 steps from Campground Beach on Cape Cod Bay. Every inch of it will remind you that you’re at the beach and on vacation. The cottage has all the creature comforts discerning vacationers require: air conditioning and heating, Wi-Fi, hi-def expanded cable, 32” flat screen TV, DVD/CD player and an iPod connection, gas grill, picnic table with umbrella, lounge chairs and large umbrella on a rolling base on the roof deck, beach chairs and umbrellas, even small wagons for your kids to bring toys to and from the beach.

The kitchen is fully equipped for meal prep. The bathroom has all new fixtures including a glass-enclosed shower, although many guests love to use the large outdoor shower from late spring through mid autumn.

The screened porch is the perfect setting for relaxed reading or leisurely conversation while the roof deck is the best place to view spectacular sunsets over Cape Cod Bay. Stargazing late into the evening will become one of your favorite pastimes.

Discounts will be considered for rentals of two or more weeks. In June, July, August and September the cottage is rented for a minimum of seven days (from Saturday to Saturday). Exceptions may be made for rentals in April, May, October and November.

Outstanding!!

If you are looking for a beautiful beach cottage, in a great location, and steps away from the beach, then look no further. Blue Skies on the Half Shell will not disappoint! I spent hours on line looking for that special cottage on the lower/outer Cape that would "just feel right" from the moment I saw it. Arriving with anticipation and hoping the cottage was as advertised, Blue Skies on the Half Shell exceeded everything we hoped for from the moment we opened the front door. We did not want or need for anything during our stay (except more time).

The location and close proximity to the beach can't be beat! The sunsets from the roof deck were amazing! We explored most of the outer Cape and part of the lower Cape and were always happy to return home after a day of exploring to see the sunsets with a cocktail in hand. Sue is wonderful to work with. She was responsive to all of our questions prior to arrival and even checked in with us a day later to make sure we didn't have any questions or concerns. We definitely will stay here again when coming to the Cape and highly recommend this cottage without hesitation. Thank you, Sue and Lee, for sharing your special place with us!

Just Right for Us

This was a repeat visit at Blue Skies & we continue to find that it's just right for us. The central location to beaches, restaurants & P'town is key. Whale Watch was outstanding this year. Campground Beach next door for actual swimming a real plus. Stewart's seafood restaurant was our favorite for dinner this year. Cottage immaculate as always & decorative touches & attention to detail make it unique. Hope to return again soon. Evelyn & Steve

Sweetest Cottage!

Our week long stay was truly the most relaxing we've ever had! The cottage has every amenity you could possibly need! And the beachy decor put a huge smile on our faces! It's exactly how I would decorate my own little piece of heaven. The proximity to the beach was excellent! Since we were in the middle of a heat wave, we enjoyed spending long days at the beach every day! Loved it!

Happy House

Another wonderful time at Blue Skies! We've always enjoyed the Cape but this Happy House has taken it to another level. Our two weeks here still wasn't enough, might have to consider 3 weeks next year! We feel so at home here. Everything you need is right here, love the porch, deck, beach, the privacy and convenience of everything in the area. Fun, sun, food, wine in the Summertime at Blue Skies. Love it!

A Corner of Heaven ....

We just completed our fourth stay in Blue Skies on the Half Shell. This truly is home away from home for me. The only change I would make would be to have it on the waterfront! Since that is not possible, I'd say there is nothing to be done to improve our enjoyment during this time. The cottage welcomes us with its warm, sparkling atmosphere, is cozy and bright, and well stocked anticipating nearly every need we could have. The walk to the beach is about 100 steps and beach chairs and toys are provided as well. We continue to discover neighboring delights, such as Fairways restaurant, coffee from the Hole in One, the Yarn store for those knitters who come, and the wonderful community of Orleans.

Sue and Lee, the owners, are so very accommodating and pleasant, you will feel as though you've known them for a while, even though they are not nearby. Renting from them just might be one of the best decisions you'll ever make. We are fortunate to be able to be there for 2 weeks, yet every year when we pack up and leave, I'm sad and start counting down for the next visit.

Blue Skies does it again!

Our family was back for a second time at Blue Skies. The place is perfect. Our young family of 4 found the accommodations just what we needed for a week of rest and relaxation. We're looking forward to returning next year. Just a note that may be helpful: you don't need to bring anything for the beach! The owners have been kind enough to provide beach chairs and as many kids toys as you could need... umbrellas, wagons, kites, buckets and shovels...

Our Favorite Cape Cod Cottage

Our fifth visit here and counting. I don't know what we've ever done to deserve another post-Labor Day week of glorious weather!! Swimming in the clear, cool water of Race Point within view of whales spouting their beautiful fountains of water…well, for me, this is my idea of heaven. I'd like to put that day in a Mason jar, put the lid on tightly, and then save it for a brutal day in January when we're being assaulted with bitter cold and mountains of snow…then pop the lid and out pops September 16th! We love being here. See you next year.

BlueSkies Vacation

This is a great cottage in Eastham. This was our second visit. It's a beautiful, clean and comfortable cottage that has everything you need. The beach is a very short walk away. No need to pack up the car and drive back and forth to the beach, especially when you have small children. Sue and Lee provide beach toys, wagons, chairs and umbrellas. The outdoor shower and rooftop deck which overlooks the beach are also great. If only vacations could last forever!

Thank you for your wonderful endorsement. Absolutely love your sentiment "If only vacations could last forever!" Allowing yourself to get wrapped up in the charms of Cape Cod is the clear bonus of time spent there. We look forward to hosting you in the future for your next dose of Cape magic!

Thank you so much for the most amazing time! Wonderful memories for our son! The bay is so beautiful and the sunsets were amazing! The cottage is so quaint and had everything we needed. We'll be back for sure! Thanks again for everything.

A little slice of heaven!

This gorgeous cottage was the perfect place to spend our vacation in Eastham! It's the best of both worlds keeping with the beachy, cottage vibe, yet offers all of the modern comforts we truly appreciate (and would miss if we didn't have them) like cable, wifi, and AC.

Every inch of the house (inside and out) is clearly meticulously planned and cared for, from the kitchen, to the decor, to the beautiful garden. The house provided everything we needed (and more) for our beach vacation.

We'll definitely be back next year and are already counting down to our next outdoor shower, coffee in the garden, and sunset from the roof deck!
