This Hyannis cottage is located just a three minute walk from Keyes Memorial Beach, which has nice sand and very gentle waves, and was perfect for my 7 and 5 year old kids to swim. We were also able to walk ten more minutes over to Kalmus beach to enjoy the snack bar. Kalmus has a ton of shells, which makes walking a bit uncomfortable, so we preferred the beach by the cottage for that reason. We walked to Veteran's Memorial Beach for Fireworks on the 4th of July, which was a bit of haul, but doable! Over all the location was phenomenal, as Sea Street intersects with the end of Main Street where all of the cute shops and candy stores are located!
The cottage itself is the perfect size for our family of four and nicely air conditioned. The kitchen was fully stocked with all you need for cooking including the Keurig coffee. I used the drip coffee maker, since I brought my own. We received a welcome gift of Cape Cod chips, paper plates, and delicious local cranberry drinks which was very thoughtful.
The pool was heated and well cared for. It was open 11 to 7 each day and it often felt like a private pool because there was no one there except our family and the pool attendant.
The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom shower has a really great shower head that is adjustable and detachable, which is nice for kids. Linens were clean and high quality.
Bring your own shampoo, conditioner, body wash. Dish soap is provided. Basket with hairdryer, and some left over items, like sample shampoos and sunblock were there in case we forgot any of our own, which was nice.
Beach chairs, boogie boards, and sand toys are stored outside for your use. We also used the outdoor grill one night to make dinner.
The host is lovely and gave us good suggestions for what to do and where to eat in a little book and she sent great info ahead of our arrival. We booked via the "We Need A Vacation" website, but it's nice to see it cross listed on Trip Advisor.
