Description

Located near the ocean on a quiet dead-end street in Woods Hole, this 3-story Gem is just steps from the short path leading to the beautiful and inviting private association beach. A comfortable and attractive get-away for 4-10 people, each pine-paneled room in this 1939 cottage radiates warmth and charm. A beautiful fireplace with old Spanish tiles is the center of the comfortable living area while the sun porch opens with sliding French doors to the roomy deck with two picnic tables, umbrellas and sitting chairs. The baths and laundry area have new fixtures and appliances. The custom-made kitchen is modern, spacious and light with delft tiles, a sky-light and a door to the deck. It has a new 2 door refrigerator with ice maker and the stove has a ceram top. The upstairs bedrooms are cozy and full of natural-wood quaintness (renter's comment -''like living in a tree-house!'') while downstairs the big king-size bedroom offers comfortable privacy. The adjoining, fun ''lighthouse room'' with four ...built-in bunks (two ''extra long'' are 80 in. long for those tall teenagers, two are 40 in. wide for twin-bed comfort) and direct access to the lower-level garden is great for kids and adults alike. (Upper bunks are quite high - perhaps not suitable for very small children). It's a 10-minute walk to town, ball park with public tennis courts and playground, Shining Sea Bike Path, sailing lessons, aquarium, scientific labs, MBL folk-singing and folk-dancing, Children's School of Science, ferries to Marthas Vineyard, Woods Hole Market, restaurants, shops etc. All mattresses in the house are new, of excellent quality and firm for sensitive backs! Extremely comfortable! Our wireless internet connection allows you to keep up with the life you left behind at no extra charge during high season(not included in off-season rates). We added a new HD 42 in. flat screen TV to the living room in October 2011 as well as a nespresso machine for those who care to bring espresso and luga capsules. The hot/cold outdoor shower with changing area and full length mirror is spacious enough for a young family to get the sand off together after a day on the beach. This wonderful space always evokes positive comments from happy renters! The house offers comfortable room for 10 people in 5 bedrooms during the summer, and for up to 8 people in 4 bedrooms from October through May, i.e. the colder months (the bunk room cannot be heated!). It is extremely comfortable for a couple or smaller family of 2-4 people. The furnace is reliable and quick and promises a cozy house when the heat of summer is past. The house offers a portable crib for children up to 55'' height, a safe, modern high-chair, portable fans, a baby bath and gates/doors on all stairs and the deck. Several beach chairs and an assortment of children’s' beach toys are in the garage for our renters to enjoy. The color schemes and decoration in this house are a delight for the eye and most unusual for a rental property. A birdbath and three feeders on the deck attract 23 (spotted to date!) different varieties of feathered friends to the great pleasure and entertainment of all. Even our chipmunks contribute to the pleasure of young and old by sitting on outstretched hands to retrieve a peanut. Many renters have commented that watching the constant, busy activity of the many birds and the antics of the determined squirrels from the sun porch, kitchen and deck was a highlight of their Cape Cod vacation in this very special house.

If you need more space or have friends/family wanting to be near you at the same time, please see the website for our beautiful 2-bedroom property in nearby Sippewissett, just 8 minutes away, -- at Weneedavacation, Property ID#20723.

Additional availability info: 3 PM -in,10 AM -out. Norm. When possible 8AM in- 8PM out allowed!. This is a Saturday to Saturday vacation rental.

Long-Term Rental (1 month or more): This house is an ideal winter rental property for those desiring beautiful and comfortable accomodations within walking distance of the scientific institutions located directly in Woods Hole. It is a warm and cozy house with an excellent furnace and ample wood for the fireplace. The cheerful color accents and beautiful interior make it a joy to return home after the 10 minute walk from Woods Hole village. It is available at reduced rates from October thru May with the lowest rates for multiple months. The wireless and cable connections are disconnected in winter but can be reconnected for off-season use at actual cost. While large enough for 8 people in 4 bedrooms during the winter, the house is very comfortable for 2-4 persons. In winter, due to the lack of leaves on the huge trees above, the deck has full sun and is sheltered from ocean breezes, - thus it can be enjoyed many days of the year. The bird feeders bring life to the deck and are a source of delight to all.

What a great home away from home!

Our extended family from two continents got together this summer and called this beautiful house " home" for a whole week! We were so happy to be with each other and not have to worry about having to pack our cars each day and drive to the beach! Just a few steps away the ocean is pretty much in the front yard. (Remember to bring water shoes if you want to explore the rocky shore!)

The owner is meticulous in maintaining the charm of this beautiful property. and you can find anything you need in the kitchen cabinets! The outdoor shower is perfect, I want to build one at our house too now!

Perfect location -walking distance to the Ferry and we did take advantage of it to explore Martha's Vineyard for a day! The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute with all its perks (donation based !) is within walking distance too, and we had the perfect midweek rainy day to explore it with the kids!
We all had a blast and we'll be back for sure in the future!

Owner was reachable and very responsive to any questions, which made our stay even more worry free!

Many thanks Alice fir opening your home to us!
Sincerely.
The extended O'Neill/Dico/Suteu family!

A wonderful house next to our favorite beach on the Cape

This house is in great location, 1 minute walk to a beautiful private beach which belongs to association of 60 houses in Woods Hole. It is also 10 minutes beautiful walk to many shops and restaurants on the main street of this charming little town, and a quick bike ride to the Ferry Terminal and a gorgeous Falmouth bike route. Even shopping can be done on bike - in case you don't want to drive on vacation.

The yard and the deck are wonderful, the house is very clean, the beds are extremely comfortable, and the house is equipped with everything you need. I brought many of my own kitchen utensils but they were superfluous because the kitchen has everything you may need. I never rented a house so fully equipped, including all the little things such as hair driers in each bathroom, etc. If I knew about it in advance, my packing would have been so much easier. And I never rented a house where I felt as comfortable as in my own home due to all little conveniences which are provided by the landlord.

There are many big windows downstairs - a lot of air. Each bedroom also has 2 windows (upstairs bedrooms are rather small, while the king bedroom on the ground floor is big). However, our weeks were very hot in Boston, so even in Woods Hole it was unusually hot. We were glad that we brought 3 smaller window fans, together with 3 fans which we found in the house, it was just enough.

The house is wonderfully managed - whatever is a problem, a manager of the property reacts immediately.

Wonderful vacation in paradise, with birds and flowers and waves - we highly recommend the house!

A comfortable, well-equipped house. Everything works.

The house is spacious and airy. There is a wonderful skylit outdoor shower and a great lawn away from the street, so safe for small children. The best aspect, however, is the lovely private beach which is accessed by a bridge over a lotus filled pond. We loved the house and had a terrific family vacation there.

A charming retreat

We spent four weeks in this charming house, and it very quickly felt like home. The beds were comfortable, there was a cozy living room for hanging out and watching movies. The kitchen was very well equipped - we really enjoyed cooking and spending time together there. The kitchen/dining room area opens on to a beautiful back deck that is very private and relaxing. This was our favorite spot, and was a wonderful spot to watch the birds and wildlife. We also made use of a fantastic new gas barbecue. We enjoyed every minute of our time there and hope to return! show more show less

What a great place to stay

Our family was so delighted with this home. Safe, secure, comfortable, a home away from home. The bird watching and chipmunk feeding was delightful. We were blessed with stupendous weather so sitting on the deck was delightful. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay with kids and with an elderly person. Easy walk to the beach and Woods Hole "downtown." Loved our time on the Cape.

A Magical Spot

We've come back to rent this magical spot the past five years and love it more on each visit. Our week is the highlight of every year. The house is extremely well stocked and maintained, and the location is beyond compare. You are a short walk to a great beach (one block) where you can swim and hunt for crabs (kids have a blast) and a quick walk (or bike) to town. The neighborhood is filled with interesting people, too, who have come back to these woods for generations. And if you like nature, you could just spend the day on the deck watching the many different types of birds. (My two young daughters love to stand out there.) The outdoor shower is a great way to end each day. This place is clearly a family home that generations have put a lot of love into. We can't wait to get back there in 2013! show more show less

"We have been comng to this home for 3 years now. The owners are marvelous. Very accomodating in many ways. This house has everything you can imagine so that you need only a few outfits for the beach. The laundry facilities are great. The only downfall on all 3 stays is that we had to leave....We will be back for year 4. highly reccommended. Five stars out of five."
