Description

This welcoming waterfront sanctuary sleeps up to 10 in four bedrooms and offers breathtaking views (W-NE) of Mill Pond, Nauset Harbor, and Nauset Beach. Located at the end of a winding Grandview private cul-de-sac, there's a boat ramp and small community beach 100 (paved) feet from your front door.

A wraparound deck off the main level facing the water lets you luxuriate unseen and features comfortable seating, a small outdoor dining table with umbrella, and convenient gas grill. A shaded path leads down steps to a private waterfront from which you can swim to the nearby float, fish, or launch kayaks (included) to explore Mill Pond and beyond. After you enjoy the outdoor shower, a Cape Cod summer tradition, savor a meal and beverages while watching the sunset and afterglow.

The open-concept living space includes a family room with three huge bay windows that showcase the stunning water views. Here you’ll relax and enjoy each other's company and the sounds of nature or perhaps a crackling fire in the fireplace.

If you need more stimulation, or just crave contact with what you've escaped, there's house-wide high-speed WiFi and a 40-inch flat-screen TV in the dining area, a 60-inch smart TV with a soundbar on the lower level, a smaller smart TV in one of the upstairs bedrooms, and a low-IQ flat-screen in the master bedroom, all with extended Xfinity cable service.

The downstairs lounge area provides plenty of room for another group, or different generations, to spread out and never feel pinched for space.

The open social kitchen is well-equipped, including for kibitzers seated at the counter. Between the kitchen and the lounge is the dining area, also with a big bay window. The country-style dining table seats six and can be extended to accommodate another four.

The main floor also features a huge sunroom with remote-controlled honeycomb shades for both the windows and skylights. If it all gets too much, there's a daybed and recliner for napping. Finally, there's a laundry room with a stacked washer and dryer.

For sleeping, the main floor provides an oversized master bedroom with two twin XLs that can be combined into a king. It also features a full private bathroom en-suite, complete with a step-in shower. The main level guest half-bathroom is right next to the kitchen.

On the upper level, there are two bedrooms. One has a four-poster king. The other bedroom features a comfy twin and the best views in the house (complete with a telescope). These bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom with opaque-glass-surrounded shower in between.

On the lower level, the vast space can serve as a large bedroom. It has two single beds and a queen sofa/sleeper, with an en-suite tub and shower.

Overall, this property has the look of a traditional Cape Cod-style house and the feel of a manor, except with leading-edge technology and creature comforts. You’re easy walking distance to Nauset Beach and just a short drive from the center of Orleans with its many dining, shopping, and entertainment venues. It's ideal for multi-generation vacations and sun as well as sunset worship.

This property has brand-new air conditioning throughout. When opening a door or window to let the breeze through isn't sufficient, just pick up a remote and control your personal climate instantly.

(Spring, Fall, and Winter renters will appreciate the mini-split AC/heater units in the master bedroom/sunroom and lower level. They're a great way to get cozy when it's cold outside before the baseboard heaters kick in.)

This house is brand new to the rental market, so we especially welcome your input. By way of disclaimer, its owners lived in London for 45+ years, so they love the bright light reflecting off Mill Pond. You might feel differently, so please be aware that not all the windows have shades. It's okay to don sunglasses indoors.

Please click on the Pricing & Availability tab for detailed information about weekly rates. This property has a seven-night minimum during the peak season. State and local taxes totaling 14.45% apply to all reservations less than 31 days in length.

This property offers a 3-night minimum stay during select weeks in the offpeak season. Guests incur a cleaning fee for all stays less than 7 nights; stay 7 nights or more, and the cleaning fee is waived.

COVID-19 Concerns and Cancellations
==============================
March 12, 2020: Recent developments related to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) have prompted guests to ask about their cancellation options. To help reduce travel and financial anxiety, we've relaxed our policies.

For 2020's summer season, you may cancel your booking for a full, 100% refund up to two (2) months before your arrival. After that date, you may (1) transfer your deposit (fee-free) toward a future stay or (2) cancel completely and get a 50% refund immediately. In the latter case, we'll refund up to 100% of your payment(s) if we're able to rebook for the same or a higher price.

To reduce the chances of COVID-19 contamination, know that our home will be extraordinarily and professionally cleaned before your arrival and that we've provided ample disinfectant cleaning supplies.

We recommend that you buy travel insurance so you can get a 100% refund of your costs should you cancel. Before you buy, check whether your carrier honors cancellations due to virus-related issues. Some won't, treating COVID-19 and its implications as ''known, foreseeable, or expected'' hazards. If you can't find suitable guarantees, consider a ''cancel for any reason'' (''CFAR'') insurance policy, which typically refund only 50-60% of your costs.

Calendar Last Updated: April 01, 2020

Additional availability info: Special: June 27 to August 1, 2020 (5 weeks) for $33000 - save $3000 and skip the $5202 MA tax!. This is a Saturday to Saturday vacation rental.

Long-Term Rental (1 month or more): The house has exquisite views north and west, is well-insulated, features two fireplaces, and is protected from easterly storms. Once snow falls, it's important to have a reliable 4-wheel drive vehicle due to the steep, winding cul-de-sac and negligible traffic during winter (although the next-door neighbors stay all year). West- and north-facing rooms (including living, dining, and upstairs king bedrooms) get colder when the wind blows over Mill Pond. The oil-fired furnace runs year-round to prevent water pipe breaks. Xfinity high-speed WiFi, VoIP phone service, and extended cable TV also operate year-round. The property manager visits daily and is very capable and responsive. Monthly rent is $6000 from November through mid-May, after which the property transitions to a summer rental with higher rates.

Payment Methods: Zelle, ACH/EFT (no transaction fees); PayPal, Venmo (transaction fees vary); and personal checks

Additional pricing info: Discount for multiple weeks negotiable. Must supply own linens. Cleaning fee for sub-7 night stays. State and local taxes of 14.45% will apply

About Andrew

Member since:
7/18/2018
My family and I have spent summers in Orleans since 1980. We were expats living in London, but several of my parents' best friends had homes on the Cape and it quickly became our ''happy place'' too.

We rented all over town for a couple weeks a year, refining our preferences (and tolerances) for more than two decades until a chance kayak outing led them to discover the ''goldilocks'' property. In a nutshell, it offered the all-too-rare ''sunset view over water'' they sought. So they completely gutted, remodeled, and refurnished the place, and for the past 15 years have made it their summer home.

I'm their eldest son, and have experience as a residential landlord in Napa, California, so when their property manager retired a few years ago I agreed to handle the property's logistics, finances, and upkeep with the invaluable help of a local builder/contractor/craftsman to serve as my eyes, ears, and hands.

My parents would love to continue summering there indefinitely, but they've come to appreciate the virtues of sharing it too (smile). It's my mission to find appreciative, responsible vacationers (and even off-season renters) who'll bond with this sanctuary as much as my parents have, and who'll want to return year after year.

What is special about this property?
If there were no house already on this parcel of land, the Town of Orleans' current zoning wouldn't allow one to be built. That's because of how close the house is to the water (to the north and west), and how close it is to a permanent nature preserve (just the other side of the rock wall on the west edge of the yard). But I suspect it's also because this house has infinitely better and broader views than Grandview homes five times its size built in the past decade further up the hill.

Regardless, for my family and me, watching the sunset from the west deck (or almost anywhere else in the house) has always been a hush-inducing experience. And during the rest of the day, surveying Mill Pond from the wraparound balcony is soothing beyond words. If it gets too hot or humid, we'd just open the Pella doors onto the deck (in conjunction with one or both front doors) and the cross-breeze would get us comfortable again quickly. I know not everyone prefers that option, so we've installed area-specific air conditioning (new in 2020) to address your needs.

Being so close to Mill Pond affords other special privileges, like watching the resident seals play and hearing them stir up the water as they corral fish. If you want video proof, just ask.

What is special about your town?
Orleans has charm, history, and plenty of amenities to offer multiple generations. From its highly successful minor league baseball team to its deeply nautical culture and old-Cape architecture, it's hard to get bored here. Even if all you do is bake on the beaches (Nauset or Skaket), when the weather's right there's no place quite as comfortable and relaxing. And if you're a cyclist, the Cape Trail goes right through town and all the way north to Provincetown.

East Orleans, at the eastern end of Beach Road heading toward Nauset Beach, is (IMO) a ''thickly settled'' and wealthy area with a great climate (especially from July through mid-October), and more topological variety than most of the Cape. Yes, there are hills, even cliffs, which make views of the Atlantic all the more dramatic. Before the sun gets too high you can sometimes see spouting whales. And of course there's water everywhere -- both the fresh and salted kind -- so swimming is feasible even if you never enter the ocean.

Being an outdoorsy loner, my favorite activity is to hike along Nauset Beach north to ''The Cut'' and back along Nauset Harbor. It's 7 miles, mostly in soft sand, so it can be challenging. There are, however, barking seals aplenty to keep you company, and in late June and early July the Horseshoe Crabs mate -- now there's an unforgettable sight.
