Description

Description

Fronting the Child's River, this lower-level apartment with its own entrance is perfect for 1-2 people, who want to use it as a base to explore the Cape and Islands or enjoy a quiet respite. The private home is in an established neighborhood, and the owner is on the premises. Amenities include high-speed WIFI, a mini-split a/c in the living room and in the bedroom, all utilities, use of a washer and dryer, bed linens, and bath and beach towels. Housecleaners come between rentals and every other week throughout the season.

In the apartment, all walls are white, all floors are white ceramic tiles, and there is recessed lighting throughout. The front room has large gliding windows which overlook the estuary leading to Vineyard Sound. You can watch the boats go by, read, write, relax, watch the birds, work on your computer, or have a meal at the table. Next, the kitchen comes equipped with a fridge, large toaster oven, an induction plate, and many appliances, pots, pans, dishes, and utensils. A counter with two stools separates the kitchen and living room, which has a couch, chairs, Cable TV, and gas inset fireplace. Down the hall, there is a white-tiled, full bathroom and a bedroom containing two twin-XL beds, which can join to become a king-sized bed. A back room contains a washer, dryer, dryer rack, iron, and ironing board. Outdoors, the stone patio brings you closer to the water and gardens. There is a sitting area with a table and chairs, as well as a propane gas grill with barbecue utensils.

Seacoast Shores is a friendly neighborhood. The local free beach is a 6-minute walk from the apartment. If you continue your walk (or run) for another mile, you will reach the end of the peninsula and see Martha's Vineyard in the distance. There are numerous rights-of-way in the neighborhood for you to have a closer look at the river or for you to launch your own kayak or canoe. Please note, though, that the dock on the property is inaccessible to renters. The neighborhood is also wonderful for a casual bike ride around its perimeter. You may keep bikes in the garage, where there are beach chairs for your use, too. This rental has driveway parking for one car.

The Town of Falmouth is known for its beautiful beaches. Menauhant Beach is a 10-minute drive. Continuing along the coast, you will reach Bristol Beach, Falmouth Heights Beach, or Surf Drive Beach. Beaches in Woods Hole, North Falmouth or West Falmouth are about a 25-minute drive from the apartment. Falmouth also has the popular Sea to Shining Sea Bike Path. Drive to Mashpee Commons, ten minutes from the house, for groceries, dining, ice cream, and shopping at specialty or larger stores. Downtown Falmouth has one of the prettiest Main Streets on the Cape, and there are many shops and restaurants, plus picnic tables set up on the library lawn for the public's use. The Marina with the Island Queen ferry is just 20-minutes away. The Woods the Steamship Authority is a 25-minute drive if you’d like to catch a ferry going to Martha’s Vineyard. Along that scenic driving route is the landmark Nobska Lighthouse, which has panoramic views over Vineyard Sound. If you drive in the opposite direction onto the Mid-Cape Highway, you can visit the magnificent Lower Cape National Seashore Beaches or unique towns, like Wellfleet, Truro, or Provincetown. Hyannis offers ferry service to Nantucket and MV.

In addition to its fabulous beaches, Falmouth also offers golf courses, tennis courts, pickle ball courts, Commodore Baseball Team games, conservation land for walks, movie theaters, the famous Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Marine Biological Lab, as well as many art venues such as numerous galleries, Highfield Hall, and the College Light Opera. The Falmouth Town Band performs free weekly concerts in the park by the marina.

    Charming Waterfront Rental

    My husband and I booked this charming rental property for our wedding anniversary and loved it! Exquisite gardens, gorgeous river views and a well appointed, immaculate apartment. A true sanctuary in quintessential Cape Cod . Beautiful beaches and terrific restaurants ( that offer outdoor patio seating) close by. To top it off , the host was kind, gracious and highly accommodating. I have booked many rentals on the Cape for the past 20 years and give this rental 5 plus stars!!

    Thank you! I am happy that you and your husband had such a positive experience here for your anniversary. You were very considerate visitors, who explored the Cape, enjoyed its amenities, and returned each night to relax and appreciate the quiet beauty here. I only wish that you could have stayed longer. Best of luck to both of you!

    I have rented my peaceful summer apartment on the Childs River since 2016. Know that I take pride in keeping it fresh, clean, and welcoming. People who have most enjoyed this spot like nature, the view of the river, quiet times, relaxation, and using the rental as a base to see the rest of beautiful Falmouth, Cape Cod, and the Islands.





    What is special about this property?
    Besides offering a lovely, natural environment with its location right on the salt water river, it is perfect for other activities. You can transport your bike to our famous ''Sea to Shining Sea'' Bike Path for a scenic ride or walk. Edgewater Drive has little traffic, so an easy ride, walk, or run around the peninsula is invigorating. Maybe, you'd prefer to take an 8-minute walk to our small association beach to take a swim or just plant your towel and watch the boats pass from the Childs River to Eel River. Restaurants, grocery stores, and specialty stores are close. Perhaps, you'd want to drive to some of Cape Cod's special spots: the National Seashore, Provincetown, Main Street in Chatham, Nauset Beach in Orleans, the Cape Cod Canal bike/walking path or public boat rides, the JFK Museum in Hyannis, or the scenic North Side of the Cape Route 6A, stopping for an ice cream along the way. Some guests even drive or take the bust to Boston to experience some of what our great capital city offers.

    What is special about your town?
    Falmouth is well-known for the Arts, so plan a visit to the Art Center or nearby Cotuit Center for the Arts. Highfield Hall offers entertaining musical and stage performances, as well as art openings. For history buffs, there's the Katherine Lee Bates Home and the Woods Hole Historical Museum. Several movie theaters are in Falmouth or nearby. If you want to take a trip to the Islands, drive to The Steamship Authority, the Island Queen, or the Patriot Two. For golfers, there's the Falmouth Country Club, a public course, and tennis players may play on the public school courts. Nobska Lighthouse offers weekly tours, and Woods Hole has its salt water aquarium. You have your choice of restaurants, since this house sits between Woods Hole and Mashpee Commons. There's Smitty's famous ice cream or Gelfi's chocolates for sweet treats. Falmouth is known for having the most contiguous shoreline of all the Cape Cod towns, so spend a day or two or three checking out each unique beach. The town's libraries usually have an array of special happenings that you can find on their websites.Our local paper, ''The Falmouth Enterprise'', will keep you updated on our town's events. The choice is yours!
