Perfect Beach House

My family of five that included three young boys absolutely loved this house. We have stayed in many "We Need a Vacation" Cape houses over the years, and this was hands down the best. Although only two beds/one bath, it was not an issue for two adults and three kids. The dual living rooms made it feel much bigger inside. The basement, although not pictured here, is a child's dream; air hockey, video games, darts, etc. It made rainy days enjoyable, and kept my children from the constant phrase "I'm sooo bored!!" The deck and views were amazing along with the hot tub particularly on the chilly evenings. The kitchen beautiful, clean, and a pleasure to cook in. The best feature in my mind though was the close proximity to Skaket Beach. We would drive down, my husband would drop us off, and he'd take the 10 minute walk back to join us for the beach day. Great money saver too on the daily $20 beach fee parking. The homeowner is a great communicator and was a pleasure to work with! Highly recommended if you can get a week - don't wait, it won't last! show more show less

Location is great! We walked to Skaket Beach a few times and drove to Nauset Beach easily. The home was right for our family of 4 (and small dog). Our boys enjoyed the backyard games that were provided and we spent plenty of nights on the deck playing family trivial pursuit while enjoying the cool evening breeze. The owners were great with keeping in touch throughout the week and answering all of our questions. Overall, great experience!

Skaket house

Our family of 3 rented this house for the first week of August this summer 2020. This location is perfect for accessing some of the best lower cape beaches, especially one of our favorites Skaket Beach. The house was very clean on arrival and well equipped. We loved the back deck with huge awning and had most of our meals outside. We saw all kinds of wildlife from there including deer walking through the marsh and lots of bunnies and owls.

My son really enjoyed the basement games and we had many Ms Pac-Man competitions that week! The week we stayed was very hot so we barely used the hot tub, even at night, but it was a nice option to have. We have rented in the lower cape for many years and think this may be the house that we keep coming back to.

The layout makes this house feel larger than it is and offers many comfortable sleeping options. Because of this years Covid complications we really didn't know what to expect once we arrived but ended up having a really great time. Parking is limited at beaches this year so Skaket filled quickly. We highly recommend the beaches in Brewster especially Crosby beach for kids. Beach passes can be bought daily online and makes parking very easy for out of state guests. This house is close to everything but also hidden from noise and traffic its the perfect spot. We will definitely be back!

Perfect House on Cape Cod

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this house - it had it all and had such a welcoming vibe. I kept thinking that there is no reason to stay at any other rental house when returning to the Cape. It was clean, comfortably, perfect for families with kids and perfectly located. There really isn't anything else you can ask for!

We absolutely loved our stay at this home! The house was impeccably clean and the layout was perfect for our family of four. Having multiple living areas plus the basement game room makes this home feel much bigger than it is. The yard is so peaceful and beautiful whether relaxing in the hammock or enjoying the porch. It is just a 10 minute walk to Skaket Beach so not having to deal with beach parking was another big plus. It was fully stocked with everything we could possibly want from beach gear to kitchen tools to Roku/cable and books/games. Wi-fi signal was strong and reliable which we needed to work and school from home. Jennifer was easy to reach and quick to respond to any questions. We definitely hope to stay in this house again, we were very sad to leave!

Beautiful and spacious house overlooking a picturesque marsh. Skaket beach is a short 10 min walk. My husband and I had a great time getting out of the city for the weekend. Thank you!

Great home in a great location. Jennifer's house is in a great location- along the water with back yard bird watching and close to beaches and bike trails. Her house is comfortable with great amenities (hottub, grill, well equipped kitchen); we felt right at home.

I would highly recommend this house to anyone staying in Cape Cod. The house was beautiful, clean, and had nice amenities. We stayed in March so got good use out of the fireplace and hot tub. We also enjoyed the game room. Jennifer was a great host very nice and answered any questions we may have had quickly. We would love to stay here again. It was nothing but a positive experience.

My boyfriend, dog and I had a great stay at Jennifer's place. The house is completely updated. We came in the winter and took advantage of the fireplace and hot tub, and we walked to the nearby beaches and were easily able to drive to Ptown to spend a day. Jennifer was easy to reach and went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend!

We had a great time at this house. Very comfortable for our family of five. Jennifer was super responsive to any questions we had. We went in the winter, so I can't comment on swimming etc, but the beach is close enough to walk to with a beach cart. We loved that the grocery store was so close, we have food allergies, so easy access to a large grocery store is a huge bonus. Our kids had a blast playing air hockey tournaments in the basement and using the hot tub in the evenings. It's not a huge house, but there was plenty of room for everyone. My husband and I would hang out by the fireplace in the evening, reading or watching a movie and the kids could watch sports or a movie in the family room. Kitchen was well appointed and we were able to cook and clean up with ease. Overall we had a great time and would definitely rent again. show more show less

Jennifer and Dan lived on the Cape for almost 20 years before relocating to the North Shore for work, but our ties to the Cape run deep! The Skaket House is our little getaway and connection to the Cape, and we would like to share it with responsible folks who appreciate the natural beauty of Cape Cod, the joy of a nice sail on the bay at high tide or a walk on the sand flats at low tide, and relaxing family fun time!

What is special about this property?
Skaket Beach House is only 4/10ths of a mile (10-minute walk) to popular family-friendly bayside Skaket Beach, with its dramatic 1-mile tides, and the ocean beaches and freshwater ponds are 3-4 miles away. The back deck looks over the marsh that borders the property. A large flat backyard is great for bocce and badminton. A 4-person hot tub is on the lower deck - great for chilly nights! There is plenty of room inside the house for different activities - sitting in front of the fire in the sitting room, playing a game or watching TV in the family room, electronic or non-electronic games in the basement rec room.

The bay beach is approximately .4 miles away (10-minute walk) from Skaket Beach House and the ocean beaches and freshwater ponds are approximately 4 miles away.

The Cape Cod Rail Trail for biking or walking is within a half-mile of the Skaket Beach House.

Walking and hiking trails are nearby within the National Seashore and Nickerson State Park.
