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.

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...

A little slice of heaven!

My husband had to drag me out by my ankles as I was kicking and screaming that it was time to leave. Well, ok, that was only in my mind but seriously this home is a little slice of heaven! Every detail is thoughtful, from the clamshell soap holder to the cork ceiling ( yup we left a few). This was my 50th trip to Cape Cod (my parents started this tradition in the early 50's). What started as a family of 3 has grown into a family of 32 and we all rent homes near Campground and go as a family.

My family was so jealous of our accommodations. It really is a spectacular place! Beautiful large outdoor shower, and the layout of the home is amazingly appointed with amenities and you can see how much effort our hosts put into making it stand out. We spent much time on the rooftop deck and the screened in porch. Thank you for sharing your amazing home with us!

Lovely location

This charming little cottage is in such a great location. You can walk a few steps to the beach, walk about a mile to quite a few places to eat, drink, get ice cream, etc., or bike just over a mile to the rail trail.

The cottage is very cozy and has everything you need for a great stay. The kitchen is well stocked, the internet is fast, there are dvds, games, books about the Cape and a giant binder of tourist info. Nice screened porch and a roof deck for relaxing.
/>You'll want to stay!

Outstanding!!

If you are looking for a beautiful beach cottage, in a great location, and steps away from the beach, then look no further. Blue Skies on the Half Shell will not disappoint! I spent hours on line looking for that special cottage on the lower/outer Cape that would "just feel right" from the moment I saw it. Arriving with anticipation and hoping the cottage was as advertised, Blue Skies on the Half Shell exceeded everything we hoped for from the moment we opened the front door. We did not want or need for anything during our stay (except more time).

The location and close proximity to the beach can't be beat! The sunsets from the roof deck were amazing! We explored most of the outer Cape and part of the lower Cape and were always happy to return home after a day of exploring to see the sunsets with a cocktail in hand. Sue is wonderful to work with. She was responsive to all of our questions prior to arrival and even checked in with us a day later to make sure we didn't have any questions or concerns. We definitely will stay here again when coming to the Cape and highly recommend this cottage without hesitation. Thank you, Sue and Lee, for sharing your special place with us!

Just Right for Us

This was a repeat visit at Blue Skies & we continue to find that it's just right for us. The central location to beaches, restaurants & P'town is key. Whale Watch was outstanding this year. Campground Beach next door for actual swimming a real plus. Stewart's seafood restaurant was our favorite for dinner this year. Cottage immaculate as always & decorative touches & attention to detail make it unique. Hope to return again soon. Evelyn & Steve

Sweetest Cottage!

Our week long stay was truly the most relaxing we've ever had! The cottage has every amenity you could possibly need! And the beachy decor put a huge smile on our faces! It's exactly how I would decorate my own little piece of heaven. The proximity to the beach was excellent! Since we were in the middle of a heat wave, we enjoyed spending long days at the beach every day! Loved it!

Happy House

Another wonderful time at Blue Skies! We've always enjoyed the Cape but this Happy House has taken it to another level. Our two weeks here still wasn't enough, might have to consider 3 weeks next year! We feel so at home here. Everything you need is right here, love the porch, deck, beach, the privacy and convenience of everything in the area. Fun, sun, food, wine in the Summertime at Blue Skies. Love it!

A Corner of Heaven ....

We just completed our fourth stay in Blue Skies on the Half Shell. This truly is home away from home for me. The only change I would make would be to have it on the waterfront! Since that is not possible, I'd say there is nothing to be done to improve our enjoyment during this time. The cottage welcomes us with its warm, sparkling atmosphere, is cozy and bright, and well stocked anticipating nearly every need we could have. The walk to the beach is about 100 steps and beach chairs and toys are provided as well. We continue to discover neighboring delights, such as Fairways restaurant, coffee from the Hole in One, the Yarn store for those knitters who come, and the wonderful community of Orleans.

Sue and Lee, the owners, are so very accommodating and pleasant, you will feel as though you've known them for a while, even though they are not nearby. Renting from them just might be one of the best decisions you'll ever make. We are fortunate to be able to be there for 2 weeks, yet every year when we pack up and leave, I'm sad and start counting down for the next visit.

Blue Skies does it again!

Our family was back for a second time at Blue Skies. The place is perfect. Our young family of 4 found the accommodations just what we needed for a week of rest and relaxation. We're looking forward to returning next year. Just a note that may be helpful: you don't need to bring anything for the beach! The owners have been kind enough to provide beach chairs and as many kids toys as you could need... umbrellas, wagons, kites, buckets and shovels...

Our Favorite Cape Cod Cottage

Our fifth visit here and counting. I don't know what we've ever done to deserve another post-Labor Day week of glorious weather!! Swimming in the clear, cool water of Race Point within view of whales spouting their beautiful fountains of water…well, for me, this is my idea of heaven. I'd like to put that day in a Mason jar, put the lid on tightly, and then save it for a brutal day in January when we're being assaulted with bitter cold and mountains of snow…then pop the lid and out pops September 16th! We love being here. See you next year.
