Description

Description

Our airy and comfortable beach house features tranquil water views, a large 22 x 11 foot elevated back deck, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, and a cozy sun room with a full entertainment center. Hardings Beach is just a short five-minute walk away, using the bluff’s private path. The house is perfect for two families, and welcoming for young or older children.

Interior:
Guests enter into the oversized living room and connected dining room. The living room runs front-to-back of the house, and the adjacent unenclosed dining room overlooks the back deck through sliding glass doors. With glorious morning sun, back deck is the crown jewel of the house. It has a teak table and chairs, and two reclining teak loungers, and is always ready for a crowd! Steps down to the backyard lead to gas grill and oversized outdoor shower. A granite and white kitchen adjoins to the deck and dining room. The kitchen features an ample granite island that serves both as a cook's work-space and breakfast ledge with stools.

Off the living room is a welcoming sun room with a small front deck that gets sublime afternoon sun. The cozy sun room includes partial views of the water on two sides, an entertainment center with plasma TV, DVD / CD player, stocked game cabinet, summer reading bookcase, and WiFi console. The couch opens up into a queen-size pull-out bed, in a pinch.

Upstairs there are two large, open bedrooms, also stretching from front-to-back of the house, both with expansive ocean views. The master bedroom has a king size bed, private full bath with shower, a walk in closet, plasma TV and DVD player, and small desk for contemplation. The second bedroom includes another king size bed, plus two twin beds for kids, a walk in closet, and ample drawer space for storage. The upstairs hallway features another full bathroom with tub, a storage closet, plus a third bedroom (between the master and second bedroom) with a single twin bed, perfect for a teenager or single adult.

PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN LINENS AND TOWELS (no linens or towels come with the house). We can arrange a linen/towel service for you, if you would like.

The finished lower level functions as a house-length play room, with a sliding glass door to the backyard. The lower level also includes the laundry room with washer, dryer, and sink; a full bathroom with shower; a queen-size futon couch/bed (not a private room); a plasma TV for gaming only (no cable or DVD player in basement); a spinet piano that keeps in key surprisingly well in the summer; and an access door to the garage. The garage houses a ping-pong table with accessories, beach umbrellas and chairs, and other sundry fun beach items. It may even have our kites from last year (!).

Exterior:
The front and side yards are open and well suited for outdoor games. A circular driveway in the front yard, as well as a sloping driveway to the garage, provide ample room for parking. An oversized, outdoor shower hides behind the shrubbery on the right of the house. The backyard is open, but slopes downward and is unfortunately not optimal for games or sunning.

General location:
The house is on a private, paved road that is owned by the “Halls Bluff Association,” made up of the owners of the 20 or so homes on the bluff including Kemah, Harbor View, and Pine Grove Roads. The association maintains the roads and a private path to the beach at the end of Kemah Road. Surrounding Halls Bluff are quiet marshlands with private homes, perfect for walks and contemplation.

All guests are welcome to use our private path to Hardings Beach, a shallow, typically serene beach along Nantucket Sound. The beach a short, 5-minute walk from the house. Hardings Beach has a well maintained bathroom, lifeguards in the summer months, and often hotdog and ice cream trucks for kids. What could be better!

Down Hardings Beach to the east is old Stage Harbor Lighthouse, just a leisurely mile or so walk down the beach. It was the the first lighthouse in Chatham (1878) and is no longer in service. Its a pleasant walk to the lighthouse to collect shells with kids, or to stretch your legs.

    Harbor View Rd.

    We throughly enjoyed our week long vacation in Chatham thanks to this wonderful rental property. The home is absolutely lovely and in beautiful condition. Our family of 4 (two college-age teens) and a golden retriever had plenty of space to spread out. (And everyone had their own bathroom!!!). The location on Harbor View Rd. was perfect—-just a short walk on a private path to Hardings beach. The house is fully stocked for cooking/grilling in and the deck is a perfect size to enjoy outdoor meals or just relax on the deck loungers. We absolutely
    loved our stay and hope to visit again in the future. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
    Cynthia is a perfect owner-responding quickly

    Spacious, perfect near-beach location

    We visited with our two daughters and their families (one small child each) and had plenty of room in this comfy, well-situated and well-appointed home that provided a wonderful family get-together for a week.

    A short, seven-minute scenic walk over the dunes brought us to a picturesque beach. (All beach amenities, chairs, toys, etc., were in the garage.) The house was nicely decorated, had a fully-equipped kitchen with all the equipment you might need, a large den to get away from the crowd and a spacious outdoor deck overseeing the backyard with a grill, etc. A trampoline and a ping-pong table were also plusses.

    Chatham proper, just a few minutes ride away, offered several excellent restaurants and appealing shops. The management was responsive, within a couple of hours, to the single problem we had. We would go back.

    Ideal House and Location

    This house and location were perfect for our family of 6 adults, two children (2-year old and 6-month old), and 2 dogs. We definitely want to go back!

    The house felt welcoming and comfortable from the first minute we stepped inside. It had spacious bedrooms, four full bathrooms, lovely views of the Sound from almost every room, a well-equipped kitchen, a charming sunroom, and a wonderful sunny deck. Our 2-year old and dogs delighted in running around the large back yard. The finished basement was unlike other Cape Cod basements we have encountered - it was fresh and airy with a king bed and easy access to the back yard. The beach equipment, ping pong table, basketball net, and piano were nice additions for our family.

    The location is ideal - not only close to Harding's Beach but also in walking distance on sidewalks (very stroller accessible) to coffee, food, and pottery shops. Grocery stores and restaurants are only a 10-minute drive away. Nearby Chatham is an appealing and vibrant town. We are pleased we have discovered such a splendid house with a great location on Cape Cod.

    As a bonus, Cynthia was an absolute pleasure to work with and provided a welcome bag with an invitation to treat her family's home as our home.

    Relaxing!

    We recently returned from a week's vacation at this home. The property was spotless and much larger than expected. We all immediately felt at home and appreciated the comfortable, relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of room to spread out over three floors.

    The neighborhood is lovely and we often used the footpath for access to Harding's Beach. Dinner on the deck followed by yard games in the back yard worked for our group with 5 children.

    Thank you Cynthia!

    A Home Away From Home

    This was our second stay at this house. The home is beautiful - very clean, well kept, and spacious. It was perfect for our group with lots of extra room to spare. The house is very kid friendly, and we were able to bring our beloved dog which made the trip extra special! The location is fantastic with a short walk to Harding's Beach. We enjoyed many meals on the spacious deck on the back of the house, and also enjoyed coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening on the deck on the front of the house.

    Cynthia and family are an absolute pleasure to work with. They definitely go above and beyond to make sure we have everything we needed. We are already planning our trip to go back same time next summer!

    55 Harborview Rd. review

    We cannot say enough. We had a great time, the house was exactly what we needed. Everyone had their own space, The main floor bedroom worked perfectly for my mother and father in law. The kitchen was nicely stocked. Location could not be beat, wonderful walk to the beach beautiful ocean breezes to cool off at night.

    We all agreed we would love to come back and stay again, thank you for opening up your lovely home.

    Fantastic Rental House

    We had the pleasure of spending a week in June with our kids and some of their friends. We were not sure what to expect from the rental and were very surprised to find such an amazing place.

    The location was great and the walk to the beach was down a beautiful private path. The attention to detail at the house was thoughtful and we felt the owners went above and beyond to ensure we had everything needed.

    The house was left well stocked with supplies and games and the kitchen had everything needed to cook for our large group. The huge table made game night fun and the back deck and sunroom were relaxing and inviting.

    We will definitely try to get back there as this rental was a true gem.

    Wonderful Home for Family Vacation!

    We really enjoyed Cynthia's home for the week. It's super spacious and comfy, loved the outdoor shower and a great location with an easy walk to Harding's Beach which is beautiful. Easy drive to Chatham! Would absolutely come back again!

    Gets better and better

    This was our fourth stay at this house; it was like coming home! The house is a perfect fit for our children and grandchildren. Our favorite things : the enormous upstairs bedrooms, the view from those rooms, easy ,fun walk to Harding's Beach,large deck and outside yard. This home has always been one of the best stocked rentals in our many years of Chatham renting. Due to Covid , we cooked or brought in all meals for two weeks, we were never without the necessary utensils. We absolutely loved the improvements to the downstairs, next year when my grandsons join us, they will surely love that space. Thank you, Cynthia for always quickly responding in the most friendly helpful way. Can't wait to return! show more show less

    Amazing respite for our family

    I wish we could have stayed all summer.
    The house is well-maintained, has a great flow and is perfectly situated in a lovely area so close to beautiful Harding's Beach, that yes, there are water views from almost every room. The great deck out back is fabulous for breakfast, lunch and post beach cocktails. The little deck in front was great for extra outdoor space and the sun room just off of that gets a great breeze when those sliding doors are open.

    As others have mentioned, there is plenty of room to spread out even with a nice-sized group, and as we were there during COVID, we certainly saw a lot of each other. (We were seven total: my husband and me, my elderly mother, my sister, her husband and their son and daughter, both in their early 20s.) The main floor bedroom was perfect for my mom who cannot do stairs. The basement area with the Queen futon provided a great space for my 20 year old niece to chill out. However, note: the upstairs twin bedroom is more "nook" than "room." It is tiny.

    The neighborhood is beautiful. The walk to the beach along the path is an easy 6 minutes. If you need to drive for whatever reason, it's a little longer, but still so close, and there is ample parking at the beach lot.

    If you're into biking, the house is also not too far from the Chatham extension of the old Cape Cod Rail Trail. A few of us rented bikes and went cycling almost every morning--which is good because Marion's Pie shop is not too far away, and we definitely took advantage of that as well.

    Cynthia is a pleasure to deal with; she answered every question promptly and fully (and I had a lot of questions). I would not hesitate to rent her house again. I wish I were still there.

    Our family has owned this property since 1995, and we truly love this house. My father, Lloyd, loved nothing more than spending time by the ocean or the beach, and this house was his baby. We grew up outside of Boston, and each summer we would follow dad around the Cape and Islands on his quest for the perfect beach house; Falmouth, Dennis, Yarmouth, Harwich, Brewster, Chatham, and Edgartown were all destinations we tried during our two week summer vacations. When he found this house on Halls Bluff in Chatham, he knew he had stumbled upon the spot he had been searching for all those years. Our family has always spent part of every summer in the house since then, and has shared it with people like you for the rest. My mother still lives in the Boston area, and my sister Alexandra and I, although now grown ups, are still beach lovers just like our dad.



    What is special about this property?
    The deck is amazing in the summer. The sun gets so hot out there sometimes, you can't stay too long without the protection of the table umbrella. At night the stars are clear and the breeze warm and we want nothing more than to hang around the citronella candles with our wine glasses and gab all evening.

    Another special thing about the house is all the nooks and crannies that people can get lost in. The interior stretches across three floors (from lower level, to main level, to upstairs) and four bedrooms, so if you want to find a little place to escape, you can. While there are great expanses of space to gather in and have together time, there is also room for alone time, which is just as valuable on a summer vacation.

    A final thing I love about this house is the sun room. Despite being small, it truly is a cozy place to relax. Many a book has been read on that green couch, and many a family movie has been enjoyed by all - crowded into that sandy-colored room. I think that's actually why I love that room so much: those sandy-yellow walls conjure up the beach even when you're not physically at it. One can feel at peace in that sun room.
