Rick and Margy are pleased to offer our historic home for your rental vacation. We rented this house out in the summers for many years, then lived here full time for 10 years. We will move out for the summer but will be living nearby and available for questions, picking up trash and recycling 3x week, keeping the gardens watered and weeded. We have a landscaping company that will mow weekly and an irrigation system that waters the front yard.
We have rented many vacation homes ourselves and know what works and what doesn't, so we are making sure we have what you need. We try to keep condiments, spices, plenty of cooking equipment, glasses (and plastic glasses for back yard), blender, wine refrigerator, lots of bath towels and beach towels on hand. We will speak with you during the rental process and again as your rental time comes near, to ensure that we have what you need. When you check in, we will walk you through the house and answer any questions you have. Our goal is your vacation relaxation!
We had short term rentals in 2016 on air bnb and have 5 star reviews from all our guests! We hope you will leave a 5 star review when you leave!
What is special about this property?
Location, location, location! This is a beautiful spot. Our grandkids, nieces and nephews love to come here. You can walk to everything - ball games, library, beach, playground, town dock, groceries. Front and back yards are spacious with room for croquet or bocce, tossing a ball, playing on the tire swing. Kids will come back from the beach, play outside, play games or do puzzles on the porch or dining room table, find a chair and read. The house sets up well for a crowd as there are several spaces where people can go to relax. We love the front porch for dining in the summer - one large round table for 6, plus a card table and a table for 8 for various people configurations. Adirondack and other chairs plus BBQ grille in back yard. Views of the harbor and beautiful gardens from the yard and kitchen.
What is special about your town?
Cotuit is the quintessential Cape Cod village - the type of place where you go for a walk just to see the beautiful town with its historic homes. In the summers the town comes alive with runners, walkers, baby carriages, boaters. There is plenty to do.

Groceries are available across the street or at Stop n Shop or Roche Bros. Peapod delivers. Lots of restaurants, pizza and ice cream close by in Cotuit, Mashpee, Osterville. Visitors can arrive by bus to Hyannis from Boston's South Station or Logan airport or by bus from downtown Providence. Taxis and Uber are available.
