Description

Spend your vacation just 50 yards from the beach at this south facing waterfront property located on Nantucket Sound in South Chatham. Our spacious house has everything your family will need for a relaxing get-away.

We are in a quiet neighborhood with a gorgeous 180-degree view of Nantucket Sound. The house has 3 bedrooms - two upstairs (one queen bed, one with two twin beds) and one on ground floor (two twin beds). There are two full bathrooms, including one with a bathtub on the second floor one with a walk in shower on ground floor. There is also an outside hot/cold water shower, plus a full size living room, dining room, and kitchen. The living room has 2 full size sofas, coffee table, some side chairs, and a high definition television with cable (including NESN) with a DVD player available for your use. The dining room has chairs for 6 people to eat comfortably together. The full kitchen is equipped with cookware, dinnerware, glasses and utensils, as well as a stove/oven, dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, toaster oven and two coffee makers (drip and Keurig). In front of the house is a patio with a gas grill, a table, umbrella and six chairs, so you can enjoy the water view from inside or outside.
The house has high-speed Wi-Fi internet, heat and central air-conditioning, and a clothes washer and dryer for your own use. Parking is available for two cars.
The private beach (shared with owner and second rental cottage) is accessible by a 40-step staircase. It has clean sand and a gentle slope into the warm water of Nantucket Sound. The beach is perfect for swimming, walking and relaxation. There are beach chairs kept at our private beach for your use.

Bring your own sheets and towels. Absolutely no pets allowed.

Listed rental is one of two identical buildings on the property, located on either side of the private road (owner's residence is also on the property at the end of the road). Houses can be rented individually or booked at the same time for two families to share while on their vacation and still maintain their own individual privacy. Contact owner to inquire about renting both houses.

    Great location, great house, and great host! Highly recommended!

    We have rented a number of vacation homes in different places including on Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard and this was truly a great experience! The location is amazing and is literally just steps to the owner's private beach. It's in a quiet neighborhood and a short drive to everything Chatham, Harwich and Harwichport have to offer. The house itself (which seems to have been built in the last 10 years) was very clean, comfortable and up-to-date with good sized bedrooms and bathrooms. While old, rustic cottages sometimes have their charm, it was nice to have modern accommodations, appliances and amenities with everything in good working condition.

    The kitchen was perhaps one of the best equipped we have encountered in any rental with everything you need although with all the wonderful restaurant and take out options in the area we only cooked in one night. (The Talkative Pig Restaurant is a nice choice and is just at the top of the road.) There is a patio with a table and chairs outside the house where we enjoyed having happy hour.

    We stayed in May and had a stretch of great weather and were able to hang out on the private beach. The available beach chairs were a nice, helpful amenity. We also enjoyed visiting a number of the other beautiful beaches in Chatham as well as some in Eastham and Truro. The host was gracious and welcoming and genuinely seemed to want us to enjoy ourselves during our stay. Overall it was very positive experience and we hope to return! Highly recommended!

    Wonderful week

    We had a wonderful stay at this home during April vacation week. I thought the house might be too small but there was plenty of room for our family of 5. Bill and Hal were wonderful hosts and the house had every amenity we needed.

    You have a beautiful water view from the patio and really are just steps away from the beach. We hope to come back to this wonderful spot.

    Sure Cure for the CV-19 Blues...

    ...was our most excellent vacation week at "The Sea"! Our second time here and, as before, everything was absolutely perfect. Bill B is a kind and generous host. Both his Sand and Sea cottages are unmatched for location, cleanliness, amenities, and comfort. Three bedrooms, two full baths, modern kitchen with every conceivable appliance, new washer & dryer in the basement, and a complete array of outdoor goodies. We originally had this booked for June but Bill graciously allowed us to switch to an October week. In my 40 plus years of Cape Cod vacationing, Bill's properties stand out as the benchmark for excellence! show more show less

    Nice Place - Not Nice Cleaning Lady

    We really enjoyed our time spent at thIs rental property. It is situated just steps from a private beach. The views from the property are beautiful. The owners were lovely and easy to work with.

    Sadly, our departure left a really bad taste in our mouth after what was such a nice week. The cleaning lady had been at the other property (there are 2 identical houses) the morning of our departure. We had been packing our car while also wrangling 2 small children. Check out is at 10am. At 9:50 am the cleaning lady came to our door with all her supplies telling us we needed to check out. We said we thought check out was at 10am. She said we needed to leave and that she was going to start cleaning the outside patio area (worth mentioning I had personally already wiped down the grill, table, and chairs with Clorox wipes we brought).

    While we finished packing the car she was hovering and cleaning within 6 feet of us (hello Covid). This flustered our family enough that we couldn't have the kids playing outside while trying to pack since she was so close (again Covid), one of us could only finish packing the car at this point, and it actually delayed us further. We ended up being completely done at 10:10am (so 10 minutes late) and pulled out of the driveway at 10:15am (after making sure gps was set, kids good, and we could be on our way). I understand the need to turn over a property for new guests that are arriving but I think there needs to be some grace given to a family who is visibility trying to hustle and get packed up to leave.

    Also, worth noting we left the property spotless, all bathroom and kitchen surfaces disinfected, and floors swept. Hopefully this helped expedite the cleaning process in the house.

    Excellent Waterfront Spot

    My family of four had the pleasure of staying at Bill's for a week. The cottage is spacious and just steps away from a private beach. Perfect for swimming, sunbathing, and taking long walks on the beach. The week we were there was quite hot and humid, and the central air was very nice to have.

    Great spot to enjoy the cape

    Our family loves everything about vacationing at Bill's. The house is comfortable and well equipped, the 20 second walk to the private beach and the peaceful neighborhood perfect for family walks. It's a great spot to enjoy the Cape.

    Amazing Location and Hidden Gem

    We stayed at the cottage in July and our expectations were exceeded. It was better than the pictures in the listing. In fact, since posting my own pictures of our vacation on social media, I had several friends reach out to me for details on the property. Unfortunately it was already booked solid for the summer! The private beach really is just steps away. With two young children, it was a perfect spot for us to setup each day. We didn't pay to visit a public beach once during our week and we never felt the need to. We had plenty of space to play in the sand, swim, and go for long beach walks.

    The cottage is tucked into a nice South Chatham neighborhood right by Forest Street Beach, and this made for nice safe walking and running around the neighborhood. It was extremely quiet and peaceful and truly felt like a vacation.

    The cottage itself was clean and spacious and had everything we needed. Beach chairs were provided, which was a nice amenity when your SUV is already packed solid for vacation! The outdoor shower was so good we didn't shower inside once! The patio was a perfect spot for happy hour each night and there is just something about a post-beach cocktail when you can hear, see, and smell the ocean. If you're looking for a place to truly unwind, this is it. We look forward to returning!

    Wonderful!

    My family of 5 had a wonderful stay at this beach home. It was the cleanest house we've ever rented, and Bill and his wife were excellent hosts. The house has beautiful views of the ocean and the private beach can't be beat! FYI, There is a long set of steps to go down to get to the beach. We look forward to returning next year!

    Fantastic vacation spot

    We had an amazing time here! The house is clean and well maintained. The pictures accurately represent the house. The kitchen was well stocked, as well as the house. We felt very safe staying here. The beach really is just a few steps away and private and beautiful. Any request or question we had was quickly responded to and taken care of. I highly recommend this house and can't wait to go back!!

    Perfect Location for a Cape Cod Vacation!

    We can't say enough good things about Bill and his amazing cottage! Incredibly well done and equally well equipped; stocked with all the basic sundries anyone would need; located in an ideal, convenient, yet secluded South Chatham location...and all this with a readily available if needed, but privacy respecting owner. We've been coming to the Cape for vacations for almost 40 years, and this was by far the best place we've ever rented. Thanks so much, Bill!...we hope to see you again.

    I have been coming to this special place since I was born and am now lucky enough to live here year round. I have owned this property by myself since 2009; in 2011 I updated everything. That is brand new buildings with all the comforts one would want: two (2) full bathrooms, A/C and heat, wireless internet - all the comforts of your own home. I love this spot and I know you will as well.


    What is special about this property?
    This property is located directly on Nantucket Sound with an 180 degree view, nice sandy beach and a very quiet neighborhood. A place to enjoy Cape Cod at its finest. Your outdoor patio provides the view and a place to grill and enjoy your evening meal; plus a nice bench at the top of the bluff so you can relax and enjoy your morning coffee or evening drink.

    What is special about your town?
    Chatham is the quiet town on Cape Cod; lots of nice shops downtown and great viewing spots to enjoy views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as Nantucket Sound. Good restaurants in town and nearby areas. This is the area people most want to visit.
