Description

Blue Skies on the Half Shell is a one-of-a-kind cottage set in a perfect location just a few 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” Smart TV, DVD/CD player and an iPod connection, a Weber gas grill and a picnic table covered by a large umbrella. The roof deck provides a panoramic view of Cape Cod Bay and includes 3 lounge chairs plus additional seating and 2 umbrellas on rolling bases to help keep everyone shaded. To help make you comfortable on the beach we provide multiple beach chairs and umbrellas plus a beach cart, a rolling cooler and 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. Two solar lights in the outdoor shower allow for rinsing off your suntan lotion while under the evening stars. Vacation bliss!

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.

Two bedrooms can accommodate up to 4 people. The master has a queen bed and the second bedroom has two twins. Both bedrooms have fans and air conditioning.

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.

Magical!!

This property is the nicest, best maintained, most welcoming and comfortable property I have ever rented in the past 25 years. I wished I could stay indefinitely. Absolutely magical place. Homeowner is professional and thorough and wonderful!

Better than advertised

This is cliche, but the pictures on the site don't really do this place justice. Here are the highlights:
+ Screen porch is awesome and actually felt more roomy than we expected based on the picture. We spent a ton of time in there with the four of us.
+ The outdoor areas (picnic area and roof deck) are really comfortable. Great shade everywhere when you need it.
+ Kitchen had everything we needed and was plenty big for four
+ You are right next to Campground Beach parking lot but you can barely tell thanks to landscaping and screening on roof deck. All the benefits of being close to the beach but you maintain a fair amount of privacy
+ Close to the beach. Literally two or three minute walk. If that.
+ Tons of beach toys. Chairs. Even coolers. This place is stocked.
+ Neighborhood is really quiet and fun to walk around
+ Grill looks very new
+ Really well done outdoor shower. Lots of wood shelves to store toiletries
+ Sue is super organized and does a great job communicating.
+ Overall a really well-landscaped and peaceful spot for a beach vacation

Had a great week and look forward to getting back soon!

Cape Cozy

What a beautiful place you have -- and very well cared for. We were impressed with the interior and exterior. From coffee (or other beverages!) on the sea deck to simply admiring the beautiful plants and flowers. (You manage to make poison ivy look charming!) It was relaxing watching all the bees gather pollen from your very tall and private hedge. Inside your cottage was spacious, yet cozy, and filled with many great windows. Great layout and colors. Our only regret is that we did not spend enough time at the cottage -- there are so many great things to do on the Cape. This was our 30th anniversary and we enjoyed it immensely. show more show less

(From the kids) It was really fun to stay at Blue Skies on the Half Shell. I like the name. We have stayed on Cape Cod for 3 years and this is the best house we have been to! I like how you put shells in the garden. I also like the TV and how easy it is to work. Thank you for a great week.

Two weeks living by the tide clock...what more do you need here at Blue Skies?! We even had a tornado! No water or power for 12 hours! Had a lot of fun by candlelight playing games. THIS IS THE BEST PLACE IN NORTH EASTHAM! See you next year.

My family and I throughly enjoyed our time here this week! The red roses and purple spiderwort stole the show in the garden! The Privacy hedge was buzzing with all kinds of bees including honeybees! We had a very peaceful and relaxing time.

Packing up -- in the rain! Skies were gray most of the week but we had a great time anyway! Wine tasting at Truro Vineyards, "The Importance of Being Earnest" at the Cape Playhouse, and lots of great seafood! Sorry to leave...as we always are...but already looking forward to next year! All the best for a SUNNY rest of the summer! P.S. The roses are spectacular!

Consistently Exceeds Expectations

After 8 visits to the cottage and Cape Cod I am still in awe of our time here. Your hospitality and home environment continue to be warm and welcoming. Each season I notice the updates and new touches around the cottage. We certainly have all we need and more here. We continue to explore new places and this year enjoyed the beaches and dining in Truro and the shopping in Brewster. We were blessed to see much marine and animal life this year...seals, coyote, turkeys, piping plovers and wonderful birds around the cottage. It was delightful to stay almost 2 weeks this year. May you have a beautiful season. Warm hugs from your Alaskan people!
