More about the home and the surroundings
The home is nestled next to 150 acres of wildlife sanctuary and has beautifully landscaped grounds. At the foot of the driveway is an 18 hole golf course and a sports court for basketball, volleyball, horseshoes and badminton. Some of the best windsurfing in the world along with kayaking, paddle boarding or just swimming in warm waters outside your front deck. Adirondack chairs are positioned around the grounds and on the beach for your comfort. The home has over 200' of private beach and the water is both safe and warm. Even during the winter months, there have been many times that all of us have been enjoying the sun on the oceanside deck.

There are two kitchens with three refrigerators, 2 dishwashers and two ovens in total. The home offers an 80 foot outdoor deck overlooking the ocean to enjoy all of the incredible views and sunrises and sunsets. To experience Southwest at Little Harbor is to experience the most fabulous, serene vacation on the entire Cape. Baseball enthusiasts can take in Wareham Gatemen games of the Cape Cod League during the summer, seeing young talent as they progress to the major leagues. Last but not least, for history buffs, the famous whaling city of New Bedford and Plimouth Plantation are each approximately twenty minutes away. How wonderful for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday.

Where can you find a home like this all year round. And you don't have to ever sit in traffic.

If you take the last week which abuts up to Labor Day weekend, we offer the last week Saturday through Saturday and then a discount for the two extra nights. Call owner to discuss!!!

There were 14 of us and we all loved the house. Two kitchens and 3 refrigerators were perfect along with the bedrooms all having water views and the house was extremely clean which we're very particular about. We got rained out one day but the house is so large and roomy that we weren't on top of each other and the fire places were another nice amenity. We all had such a great time we will be back. show more show less

There were eight of us who had not seen each other for awhile and we chose Kate's as a "destination" event worth travelling for! One woman came from Montreal but the rest from the Boston area. Upon arrival the smell of vegetable soup simmering on the stove was a "warm" welcome! Everyone arrived at different times so the cheese platter/meats/grapes/fresh breads/nuts were perfect! Everyone gravitated to the deck overlooking the bay and sipped wine until the sun set. Dinner was superb!! The salad that accompanied the soup was exquisite! The evening cooled off so lighting a fire in both dining room and living room finished off our evening. Saturday was started with fresh fruit/coffee cake/juice/coffee and assorted cereals and yogurt, just perfect. It was a gorgeous day and we all enjoyed long walks and relaxation on the deck/beach which both had ample Adirondack chairs. Saturday evening was one of the most entertaining and hands on enjoyable nights that many of us needed! Laughter was abundant and the food was as expected over the top!! We helped prepare two appetizers consisting of baby clams/broccoli rabe crostini, crab arugula with avocado both mixed with amazing melon/garlic/ricotta blended mixtures. Dinner involved mushroom risotto with pancetta, shrimp scampi, fresh carrots with tarragon and garlic with the main dish being beef tenderloin all just scrumptious! Val was expert in her wine pairing and vast knowledge of the wines being served! We finished the weekend with a delicious brunch which included quiche/fresh fruit bowl/bagels/bacon and home fries. Nobody left hungry that is for certain! The home itself was very welcoming and comfortable. All bedrooms had an ocean view. I enjoyed waking to the ocean waves and the sound of seagulls!! This most assuredly should be a planned destination for any group of good friends or co-workers!!! show more show less

What an amazing property, this is our 6th., year renting this property and it has never disappointed us. We get together once a year for a long weekend away to our favorite place to play golf and watch the sunrise and sunsets on the back deck while overlooking the ocean. It is truly a special place. Looking forward to next year! Club 73 show more show less

What a wonderful stay! When my fiancee and I were looking at potential venues for an intimate wedding celebration, it was easy for us to agree on this. It is a beautiful home, with enough private sleeping space for our immediate families, a well-stocked kitchen for bonding over meal-time, and a large backyard with panoramic ocean views for the ceremony itself. Working with Kate (the owner) was easy and friction free. She answered our questions promptly, gave us insights based on previous experiences, and was flexible and accommodating. All of our guests were in awe of the home, the property and the weekend as a whole. Absolutely perfect for our needs! show more show less

We were a group of law students staying here on a weekend retreat. The living areas are spacious (generous seating in the living room, two full service kitchens, a generous patio, and two sunrooms). The house is also supremely situated with gorgeous views of the bay, and appointed with every convenience you'll need. Most importantly, Kate is a lovely host and a joy to work with! show more show less

Our large extended family has spent 3 summer vacations at Southwest at Little Harbor and each time has been wonderful. The living and dining spaces in this house make it perfect for a large and varied crowd of all ages. The sunrooms are great for the little ones and their toys, the living room with large tables and couches is great for conversation, jigsaw puzzles or just enjoying the view; and the dining room is large enough to accommodate our entire clan at dinner. With every bedroom overlooking the water, there is always a breeze to keep the rooms cool. The beach is a bit rocky, but water shoes do the trick, and being able to swim in the calm waters of Buzzards Bay from a virtually private beach is a real treat. Like the house, the yard offers spacious areas for play in both sun and shade. The patio overlooking the bay is our favorite spot for morning coffee, lunch or cocktails at sunset. The owners and managers are familiar with the area and are very responsive, both before and during visits. They also provide recommendations on restaurants, food, shopping and activities in the area, plus there is a basket in the main hallway containing tons of local reference. We have found that Wareham is an ideal alternative to driving over the bridge during the height of summer when traffic can add hours to your drive. show more show less

We loved staying at Kate's house. There was ample space for our large group, and we really enjoyed being right on the water. It was warm enough to swim, and having a second kitchen was really helpful for meal prep. Would definitely stay here again!

My grad school classmates and I stayed at Southwest at Little Harbor for Labor Day Weekend. The house was perfect and had an amazing patio, beach access and lawn space for us to appreciate the great weather. There were plenty of activities to keep all of us busy. The house is quite large and there was more than enough space for everyone. We also really enjoyed having an outdoor grill and two kitchens to prepare meals at home! I highly recommend it!

Sixteen of us, ages two months to 70 years, just spent a week at Southwest at Little Harbor and we loved it. The house is large and well furnished, and there were even bouquets of flowers there to make us feel welcome. Being steps from the beach was so nice with six children (ages 6 and under). They loved running around on the lawns in front and in back, loved running around the large house, too. We adults were tickled to have three large refrigerators and lots of kitchen equipment. It was very nice to see that there were plenty of paper products, soap for the dishwasher(s), basics like spices and oil and vinegar.

We are very familiar with the Cape so we didn't need much guidance, but Lauren was helpful, friendly and immediately responsive, even to a few of my "dumb question" texts at the very beginning. Given the six young ones, we stayed put a lot, but went on a canal cruise, to the fun Edaville amusement park and on a fantastic pirate adventure out of Hyannis. Revisited the Whistle Stop and Chart Room - both hold many memories.

My husband and I purchased Southwest at Little Harbor 16 years ago. We have made many improvements on the home over the years, keeping the integrity and quintessential feel of the 'old classic' in tact. We purchased the home so that our two sons could get a chance to really know their very large family. It was important for us to have our sons know their grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. We do not live in the area anymore and to be able to have the large space to have everyone gather was a dream. We realized that this home would be a great place also for other families to get together. So we are now available for family reunions, vacations, special occasions, small intimate weddings and Corporate Workshops and Retreats. Go to www.southwestatlittleharbor.com to learn more.

Since we are open year round, we have since started Cooking at Kate's, which runs from October through May. Cooking at Kate's is a weekend dinner party, part cooking class and a whole lot of fun. This all inclusive weekend getaway for groups of 8-12 people. THIS IS NOT A BED AND BREAKFAST. You get the whole house to enjoy with your favorite people. From the Welcome Cape Cod Friday Night Dinner, to the continental breakfast on Saturday morning, to the Interactive Culinary Cooking on Saturday evening, the Sunday brunch, and accommodations for two nights, Cooking at Kate's is definitely a weekend to experience. www.cookingatkates.com to learn more. The cost is $500 per person.

What is special about this property?
Located on Cape Cod, right before the bridge, this beautiful ocean front property comes well equipped for any special private occasion. Our unique location offers stress-free, traffic-free travel unlike the typical congestion of the lower and mid Cape Cod area. Breathtaking views, warm,safe water, sandy beach, privacy, scenic sights of the Cape Cod Canal are all part of the beauty of Southwest at Little Harbor. To top it off, there is an 18 hole golf course at the beginning of the driveway, and the home, although nestled on two private acres, is close to all civilization you need just 5 miles from the house.

The home has eight bedrooms that all face the water. That is very unusual with these large homes. There are 6 1/2 baths, a grand living room with two fireplaces, a cozy library with fireplace, and lovely dining room with fireplace and two wonderful kitchens which have all the amenities one would need to make a gourmet meal. The water is incredible and perfect for kayaking, wind surfing, paddle boarding, or just floating. And the water is warm and safe for all ages.

We offer accomplished chefs (additional) should you want to do something fun for one evening or multiple days. The home is fully prepared for you and your guests with all the beds having fresh linens and towels for everyone.

What is special about your town?
Location, location, location. Little Harbor, Wareham, is nestled in a private area of Wareham where many of the large homes are built down long driveways. The golf course at the beginning of the driveway is a huge draw. You can play in a few hours and be at the home enjoying your family and friends. To be able to arrive at our home stress free and not be in miles of traffic is a joy. Everyone is on the deck enjoying their wine and lobster dinner while the rest of the vacationers are in bumper to bumper traffic.

The beauty of our location is you can visit ANYWHERE you like either on the Cape, Plymouth, Newport, Nantucket or Martha's VIneyard on your time. Or you can go into Boston to see a Sox game. Or if you are like us, we don't leave the home. Talk about a great vacation!
