Description

Blue Skies on the Half Shell is a one-of-a-kind cottage set in a perfect location just 75 steps from Campground Beach on Cape Cod Bay. Every inch of it will remind you that you’re at the beach and on vacation. The cottage has all the creature comforts discerning vacationers require: air conditioning and heating, Wi-Fi, hi-def expanded cable, 32” flat screen TV, DVD/CD player and an iPod connection, Weber gas grill, picnic table with umbrella, lounge chairs and 2 large umbrellas on rolling bases on the roof deck, beach chairs and umbrellas, even small wagons for your kids to bring toys to and from the beach.

The kitchen has quartz countertops in a color that will remind you of beach sand and the backsplash looks like beach glass. Meal prep is easy in the fully equipped kitchen. Want to cook up a lobster dinner? No problem! We provide a large pot to facilitate that. Need a blender to mix up your margaritas? We make that possible too!

The bathroom includes a glass-enclosed shower although many guests love to use the large outdoor shower from late spring through mid autumn.

The screened porch is the perfect setting for relaxed reading or leisurely conversation, while the roof deck is the best place to drink your morning coffee or view spectacular sunsets over Cape Cod Bay. Stargazing late into the evening will become one of your favorite pastimes.

A discount of $50 per week is offered for rentals of two or more contiguous weeks. During the months of June, July, August and September the cottage is rented for a minimum of seven days (from Saturday to Saturday). Exceptions may be made for rentals in April, May, October and November when rentals of 3 or more nights are permitted.

Book “Blue Skies on the Half Shell” today and you can look forward to enjoying a vacation in one of the top-rated vacation rentals on Cape Cod.

Beach Cottage Perfection

Gorgeous cottage on Campground Beach. Exquisite in every way: the decor, the perfect outdoor shower, the sturdy rooftop deck with sensor lighting for the evening, screened-in porch, great comfy beds with good mattresses, high speed WiFi, clean, sunny and well-lit. And to top it off, beautiful landscaping complete with baby bunnies hopping around the front yard amid the flowers. Quick & easy access to the beach, plenty of beach gear, great location and still a sense of privacy as it’s tucked away among the trees and plants. The owner was accessible, helpful, responsive and kind. Highly recommended. show more show less

Another "Blue Skies" escape.

This was our second trip to Blue Skies and was as relaxing as the first. A lot of thought and energy has been poured into this cottage and the result is a true "No Worries" escape. You will have everything you need.

Make sure you check out the Cape Cod Guide in the binder. Even if you've been to the Cape many times in the past, it is an excellent reference that is routinely updated.

See you in September!

A Wonderful, Well Appointed Cottage...

...not a scuzzy vacation “place to stay.” This was our first trip to Blue Skies on the Half Shell. It is, by far, the cleanest, best stocked cottage we have ever rented. We love to cook. There were pots and pans of many sizes, all with lids. All the window treatments were identical and worked well. The beds were comfortable and there were extra blankets. The owners provided a washer, dryer, and detergent for our use. The area is quiet and near the water. There is an upper, outside deck with chaises, chairs, and umbrellas. We spent hours and hours there talking, resting, and gazing at the water. After being out for the day, we looked forward to returning to the cottage, because it was so inviting. We can assure you that you will be pleasantly surprised if you choose to stay at Blue Skies. show more show less

The perfect spot....

It's only January and I'm already dreaming of our return to Blue Skies on the Half Shell 9 months from now. This cottage is truly a corner of Heaven. I've come to think of it as a home away from home. The cottage is well equipped with just about everything one could need down to dryer sheets for your laundry. It's conveniently located near services, restaurants, and shops. The beach is just a few steps away and the neighborhood is quiet and peaceful. There is nothing to add to make this the perfect place for your family getaway!

Our Stay by the Bay

We arrived from Naples, Florida, escaping Hurricane Irma to find a lovely, quiet spot in a beautiful, tiny cottage...We had a great time even though the weather did not exactly cooperate most of the time we were on the Cape...We visited with friends and went to a few of the local places...all good...Hope to return one day in the future...

Blue Skies

This was our third year coming to this beautiful place. It has everything you could possibly think of and is so convenient to walk a few steps back and forth to the beach. This place is immaculate, and Sue does an amazing job making sure that all needs are met. Our family expects to continue to come back for many years to come.

We enjoyed our 3rd stay here even more than out 1st and 2nd visit! Everything was perfect! This year we had a moonlight family walk at low tide that was really neat. Our twins experienced their first lobster dinner, we played a LOT of whiffle ball on the beach and watched a lot of Red Sox baseball and Little League World Series. And of course there was ice cream...daily! We are going to miss having our annual visit in 2018 but we have adventures awaiting us next summer in Alaska for a cruise and big birthday celebration. So we'll patiently count down the 720 days until our next beach vacation in 2019. We're off now to complete our shopping for 3rd grade school supplies and to get ready for the new school year. We're going to squeeze as much summer out of the next few weeks as possible before the chilly night of fall arrive! Until 2019, all our best! show more show less

Ahhh! Two weeks with nothing to do but roll 'round heaven all day. Bike to The Landing for the paper just to see what's happening, then a walk down Bay Rd. to Gail's Way, then down the steps to the beach there, up the stone steps (nice railing - new), then back to Blue Skies for another day of walking the beach, floating at high tide, a great dinner and the best sunsets ever. So good.....
