I found this place while looking for a rental that had ocean view, private beach, and was big enough for a family of 7. Because of the way houses are set up on the cape, that is hard to find. Fortunately, this place has it all and is priced really affordable! We stayed a week in September. Shannon was great to plan with and was very honest about what to expect. We arrived in the small town of Barnstable and made our way to the beach house. It was a adorable beach house, nestled between some larger places, but with its own fenced in yard. The inside of the house was clean and cozy. There are three bedrooms in the downstairs. One of them was a little bigger than the other two and had a couch as well. There are two bathrooms. The upstairs has a cute kitchen, fully stocked with all the dishes you'll need. Note here* The stove was nice, but very outdated and was not great too cook on, but manageable. The upstairs has a pull out sofa and flat screen TV, set up with Amazon and Netflix. The Best Part of the house was the beautiful view of the bay from the upstairs! It was so relaxing. There's a small porch that is attached to the upstairs slider doors and this overlooks the bay. This was a great place to enjoy coffee in the morning and your lobster in the evening. Note* this porch is great but be careful with your kids who climb! In the backyard there is a nice little porch attached to slider doors on downstairs. There also an outdoor shower which we used a couple of times to wash sandy children off. From there you can take a short stroll down to the beach. The beach is a bay beach. It is not sandy, so bring swim shoes. It's great for setting up a chair and relaxing though. The tide does come in quite a ways so pay attention. From this beach we caught the most delicious Striper we've ever had! Beautiful, fish! You'll need a license, but I'll tell you it's so worth it! We cooked the fish for dinner and they were ridiculously good! I highly suggest getting a clam digging license because this beach is LOADED with clams. Just pick a spot, start digging, and whamo, clams everywhere! They were by far the best clams we've ever eaten! The town of Barnstabele is very small. There's a yummy diner and a delicious coffee shop. I would walk there many times a day. It's about a mile walk. Biking is fun and we did two 10 mile trips! There are many beautiful sandy beaches within 5 to 10 minutes drive from house. Good Wi-Fi. This is a place to relax!
