LAST MINUTE CANCELLATION - Now Available July 15th - 22nd

As seen on the pages of This Old House Magazine, The Cape Cod Times, and featured in a calendar of relaxing porches of Cape Cod, Sonny by the Sea is the perfect place to spend your vacation. Close to all of the beauty and charm of Cape Cod, but tucked into a quiet little neighborhood, there is so much to see and do that you could park your car and never use it again. Every detail has been thought of, and there are many personal touches that will make you feel at home from the minute you arrive. It has all the charm of a boutique inn with the privacy of your own home, and we are always happy to help you plan your visit with an insider's view to all of the best places to see and things to do while you are here.

Our cottage, Sonny by the Sea, is a beautiful place where you are sure to return home relaxed and full of happy memories. Our guests are important to us, and we think it is the details that set us apart from other rental properties. Our cottage has over sixty - 5 star reviews on homeaway.com and is in the top ten of over 6,070 properties listed according to reviews!

Beautifully decorated, super clean, comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 full bath home with central air conditioning, wifi, cable tv , linens, and washer/dryer all on one floor. Enjoy family meals at home in our custom designed kitchen, or have a snack at the kitchen island. If you'd rather not cook - that's OK too, have your lobster and ''chowdah'' cooked to go at Osterville Fish Too just up the road. Better yet, have dinner or cocktails with a view of the harbor at the Mattakeese Wharf - no need to take the car! Stroll down the street to one of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod. Be sure to take in a sunset too - beach chairs and towels are here for you, just bring your own flip-flops. The house is just steps to a beautiful saltwater marsh, and the Mill Way Marina is just a block away - you can go on a charter boat or Whale Watch, eco tour, or just watch as the locals unload their 'catch of the day'. Relaxing porch out front, and deck with dining table and grill surrounded by beautiful gardens in the private back yard. Clean up after a day a the beach in the outdoor shower.

Barnstable Village has something for everyone, and you can walk to everything from our cottage! Millway Beach is just down the road, with a beautiful view of Sandy Neck Lighthouse. The beach is sandy, and the water gentle. Walk to Millway Marina for charter fishing, restaurants and ice cream, public boat launch too. Put your kayak in the saltwater marsh and head over to Sandy Neck, do some fishing, dig for clams, or just relax. A short walk past the marina is a playground for the little ones to enjoy, and then head to Main Street for shopping, restaurants, antiques, museums and more. Haunted and history tours also available, and organic farm to pick up some local grown fruit, veggies and flowers. There is a farmers market in town in-season. Located Mid-Cape, it is an easy ten minute drive to Hyannis for nightlife, ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket

Lovely spot for a long weekend .on the Cape

We enjoyed our stay in this cute cottage and wouldn't hesitate staying again. Spotlessly clean (& I'm very fussy), fantastic location with an easy walk to the beach, tastefully renovated & decorated. Lovely basket of snacks & children's activities left for us. The cottage contained everything we needed for our 3 night stay. Our only small complaint would be that the garden needed a little TLC so the cottage didn't look very inviting when we first arrived. Would recommend staying here without any hesitation. show more show less

Thank you for choosing to stay at our cottage by the sea. Our guests are important to us and we try our best to think of everything so that your stay is comfortable from the minute you arrive. The cold, wet weather this April made it dificult to get the garden going early, but rest assured it is something that we take pride in, and will soon be bursting with blooms.

"A Gem!" My daughter, grandson and I spent two nights in this immaculate, charming cottage during April vacation, and none of us wanted to leave! My 6-yr old grandson was kept active and happy during the indoor hours because the owner had kindly provided lots of age-appropriate books and games. My daughter and I were blissfully happy because the sparkling kitchen had everything we needed, and the bedrooms and bathroom were clean, comfortable and beautiful. The owner was easy to reach when we had questions, and was very helpful. There were wonderful playgrounds nearby, which we visited three times in two days! We are already longing to go back, and have recommended this cottage to a friend. show more show less

"Charming house + friendly host = great experience!" The house was perfect- just as advertised, and very comfortable. I loved how even the practical items provided (beach bags, towels, etc) were stylish and fit the mood of the home. Eva was extremely helpful and friendly, offering tips and recommendations to make our stay more enjoyable. We rented a vacation home in Truro last summer and found out when we arrived that the photos were woefully out of date and the house was filthy. Worst of all, the owner was completely unresponsive. After that disappointment I especially appreciate how friendly and helpful Eva was. I highly recommend choosing this vacation home. It was a top-notch experience! show more show less

"I was very happy to see that it was just as I pictured it would be. The cottage was beautiful and was equipped with everything we needed--except bathing suits. From watching the sunrise through the living room window to sitting on the deck at night spotting shooting stars, I loved every minute here. And the sunsets over the beach were to die for. There is so much to do- or not to do here. Whether we walked or took a short ride in the car, we were able to explore the area to our hearts content. The most important thing is that we found ourselves spending and enjoying quality family time together. When it was time to leave we were tanned, relaxed and planning to come back to this cottage again next season, if not sooner." show more show less

"We stayed at this charming cottage in August. It's more beautiful and charming than the pictures suggest. It's immaculate, comfortable and every convenience is built smartly into it. We had a great time clamming on the private beach a short block away and then cooking our catch in the well equipped kitchen - even a cookbook to tell you how to prepare the local catch. We went biking one day along one of the bike trails in a nearby town. The rental merchants will even deliver for weekly rentals. There's a lovely seafood restaurant down the block and marina for cruises. There's a quaint town a ten minute walk away with more restaurants and art galleries and other shops. The town of Hyannis is a ten minute drive away with lots more restaurants and shops. It's a lovely, quiet neighborhood with friendly neighbors. Perfect for an idyllic family get-away. The homeowners were very helpful and accommodating. I would absolutely recommend this rental and look forward to returning in the future myself." show more show less

" My family and I stayed there 4th of July week. The cottage is absolutely charming! It was well stocked, immaculate and very cozy. The owners are super nice people. The private beach is a short walk away. I met a number of neighbors who were very friendly and helpful with my questions about the surrounding area. I would definetly recommend this place. I hope its available the next time we go to Cape Cod."

A Great place to stay! - 3 weeks ago I was asked to make a last minute business trip to Cape Cod. As the kids had just gotten out of school, decided to take the family along. I found this home on the web and the pictures looked great. Had a great experience dealing with the owner and booked the home. The owners met us at the house and gave us a tour. The pictures look great, but seeing is believing! Everything is spotless and comfortable. We plan on taking a whale watch cruise next time. We have already recommended the home to family and friends. We can't wait to go back!! show more show less

"Quintessential Cape Cottage - Adorable!" Just got back from a last minute get-away with my 2 children. This cottage is immaculate, and absolutely adorable. Even the decor is perfect - the entire house is beach themed! The owners have thought of every detail, including extra toothbrushes in case you forget yours! Games and books for the kids, maps to local grocery stores, etc... House is located within a short walk to beach, and a 5 minute car ride to all the stores in Hyannis! We actually preferred the public beach to the private beach, as it had a defined swim area for the kids. It's only steps away as well... show more show less

My husband Steve and I fell in love with the Cape many years ago. We found ourselves drawn back time after time, driving through the night with our two boys still in their pajamas in the back seat looking forward to the relaxing days by the beach we would spend together.

Ten years ago we decided to make Cape Cod our home. I am still discovering new and beautiful places, and smile when I drive along Route 6A past the rambling roses and hydrangeas bursting with blooms. I look forward to the changes that each new season brings. The long, lazy days of Summer... the color of the leaves in Fall and the crackling sound of the first fire in our fireplace. The beauty and tranquility of the first snowfall in winter, and waking up one morning after a long Spring rain and noticing that all is green again.

We found our little cottage by the sea and spent the winter of 2010 designing and building our vision of the perfect Cape Cod get-away. Having rented before, we wanted to create a place where you could relax, unwind and enjoy from the minute you arrived. I hope you too will have many happy memories of sun-filled days and starlit nights and find as many reasons to fall in love with Cape Cod as we did!

What is special about this property?
Our cottage is the perfect place to be close to all of the beauty of charm of Cape Cod, but tucked into a quiet little neighborhood. There is so much to see and do in our neighborhood that you could park your car and never use it again. Every detail has been thought of, and there are many personal touches that will make you feel at home from the minute you arrive. It has all the charm of a boutique Inn with the privacy of your own home, and I am always available to help you plan your visit with an insider's view to all of the best places to see and things to do.

What is special about your town?
Barnstable Village has something for everyone, and you can walk to everything from our cottage! Millway Beach is just down the road, with a beautiful view of Sandy Neck Lighthouse. The beach is sandy, and the water gentle. Walk to Millway Marina for charter fishing, restaurants and ice cream, public boat launch too. Put your kayak in the saltwater marsh and head over to Sandy Neck, do some fishing, dig for clams, or just relax. A short walk past the marina is a playground for the little ones to enjoy, and then head to Main Street for shopping, restaurants, antiques, museums and more. Haunted and history tours also available, and organic farm to pick up some local grown fruit, veggies and flowers. There is a farmers market in town in-season. Located Mid-Cape, it is an easy ten minute drive to Hyannis for nightlife, ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.
