We spent two weeks in this wonderful home, and we hope to return again next summer. We have three young children, and this house was just perfect for us. Inside, it had a lot of space and a relaxed, cottage feel. Because the owner lives here in the off-season, the kitchen was well-equipped with good appliances and spices; and we had everything we needed. The bedrooms were comfortable, and fans and air conditioning were available in all. There was even a little office space. We enjoyed a lot of "extras" that made our stay with children easier: puzzles, games, beach toys, and a lovely yard with hammock. There were plenty of beach towels, chairs, and beach umbrellas available for our use. We made use of the grill and outdoor eating area. Laundry and wi-fi are included (though the wi-fi worked better in some rooms than others).
We visited Nauset Beach every day, an easy walk by either the main beach road (0.6 miles) or the more private Cullinan Pass (0.4 miles). We enjoyed Priscilla Beach (0.6 mile walk), where we could launch kayaks to boat in the Nauset Marsh waters, and we explored and fished in the flatter waters on the back side of the Nauset dunes. The location was terrific. The house has older/antique-like furniture and a lived-in feel, which we liked and felt made it cozy. The owner was responsive and easily accessible. We ran and biked in the neighborhood, though Beach Road is heavily traveled, so biking on this road with young children was not ideal; however, it was a short drive to park in downtown Orleans to bike the rail trail to Nickerson State Park and Salt Pond Visitor Center and Coast Guard Beach.
