Description

Cozy knotty-pine two bedroom, one bathroom cottage in Sunset Village, located 2 lots back from Cape Cod Bay, with deeded access to an Association Beach. Short walks on shady paths to three different sets of Association stairs (closest one is just 900 feet from the house) provide delightful walks to the Bay for swimming or paddle boarding when the tide is high, walking on sand bars when the tide is low, and watching spectacular sunsets over the water in the evenings.

Plan to pick your groceries up on your way to Aunt Gay’s, park the car and spend the rest of your vacation outdoors walking or biking everywhere. From the Association beach one can walk to First Encounter Beach in one direction or Herring Brook in the other, or at low tide, straight out for a half of a mile on the sand flats. When you want a break from the salt water, take a walk to the Nickerson Conservation Area to explore shaded, easy trails including ones leading to Great Pond where you and your well-mannered pup can take a dip in the freshwater or your child can enjoy the playground and public swimming area at Wylie Park. Bring or rent bicycles if a 5 mile ride to Coast Guard Beach on the ocean side sounds appealing. The ride is primarily via the Cape Cod Rail Trail, over to the Cape Cod National Seashore Salt Pond Visitor Center and the Nauset Bike Path. Or just take a short 1.7 mile walk or ride up Samoset Road for a snack at the Eastham Superette while you explore the Windmill or take in a free concert (seasonal) on the town green.

When back at the cottage, enjoy the calm breezes and hearing the waves at high tide. Or if it is a bit too hot for your taste, take a break inside with air conditioning, where there is a mini-split in each room with independent temperature controls. Relax on the front deck, the back deck or in the park-like setting of the backyard where you can cook on the gas grill and eat on the picnic table in a grove of black cherry trees. Take a snooze in the hammock or chaise lounge chair while the kids climb the strong low branches of a very old oak tree in the fully fenced-in backyard.

When you are ready to get in the car and explore the area, there is so much to recommend. Be sure to take in a movie or go the renowned flea market at the Wellfleet Drive-in. Mini Golf and Pizza at the Red Barn in Eastham is always great (especially for those of us who like gourmet gluten free pizza). Arnolds has terrific fresh fried seafood or if you are looking for something fancier, Mac's in Wellfleet is the best (and all of its fried food is gluten free). In the morning, grab coffee and a donut at The Hole in One or a full breakfast at the Fairway.

For longer outings, a 40 minute drive to Provincetown is always well worth it. Take in a whale watch or a dune tour, or just wander through the local shops and enjoy people watching and/or eating in any of the many fine restaurants.

The cottage is equipped with high-speed internet, a well-stocked kitchen that includes a gas oven and a dishwasher, and a washer and dryer (as well as a clothesline and clothespins). There is a smart TV in the family room with a Firestick for those rainy days or when you just need a break.

Linens are not provided, but can be rented from Cape Linen Rentals.

    I am Shirley de la Canal, the niece of Gatria Wheeler (aka Aunt Gay). Aunt Gay lived in the house year round from 1970 to 2021. She loved having visitors in her little house at the Cape, and we all called it ''Aunt Gay's'' for all those years. I grew up visiting her during all seasons, including summers, and have a special attachment to the area. Before she passed, we let her know we would continue to call her house ''Aunt Gay's'' and that we would share her piece of paradise with others.

    In her honor, we have made improvements to the house that we know she would have approved of (new floors, added A/C, cleared the yard of vines, etc.). We are brand new vacation rental owners and we look forward to sharing her house with others as she would have liked.

    What is special about this property?
    The best things about Aunt Gay's are:
    - proximity to a bay side beach (I love those sand bars and playing in the tide pools)
    - being third row rather than oceanfront (far less windy)
    - Shady large fenced in yard (with doggie door access through the storm door off the deck)
    - Air Conditioning with independent controls for each room (I can open the windows in my bedroom, but let the other bedroom be cool)
    - Lots of beautiful shady walking loops, especially Nickerson Conservation Area
    - Being able to swim with my dog in the fresh water pond (dogs are not allowed at the ocean/bay beaches in Eastham during the season)
    - Morning coffee at the picnic table in the shady park like setting
    - Sitting in the Oak tree on the strong low branches and feeling the calming effect that touching a tree brings
    - Sitting on the bench midway down the Association stairs watching the sunset over the water

    What is special about your town?
    - Eastham includes both bay side and ocean side beaches. Watch the sunrise on the ocean side at Coast Guard Beach and watch the sunset on the bay side at the Association beach.
    - Tour the oldest working windmill in the town center, visit the Nauset Light House or the Captain Penniman House on the ocean side.
    - Easy access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail for terrific biking.
    - Lots of local restaurants
    - Central location allows for easy exploration of nearby towns such as Wellfleet and Provincetown in one direction, Orleans and Hyannis in the other.
