Description

Description

Enjoy the peace and quiet of a private, secluded island to rest, relax and restore your spirits. From the large deck and many widows, you can enjoy stunning water views. Spend your time watching the numerous Osprey soar over the house, sailboats and windsurfers on the bay and ships transiting the Cape Cod Canal. The southwest breeze off the water rushes through the trees and house, offering a refreshing and invigorating salt air that means your vacation has begun.

Accessible by a small bridge, the house is on a point and the last on the road and a world away from the mainland. Island life has much to offer. You will be surrounded by nature and can explore the shoreline by foot or kayak/paddleboard and swim or fish the beaches and two docks. We routinely catch Striped Bass in the salt water pond along with flounder and scup from the docks. A private path in our yard leads to a spit of land that allows you to easily explore the adjacent Little Tobey Island at low tide. You are welcome to use our 2 kayaks and 2 paddle boards.

If you enjoy birdwatching, you are in for a treat as you'll see Osprey, egrets, herons (including Great Blue Herons), Cormorants, Kingfishers, terns, plovers, and many other shore birds all over the island. Great Horned Owls and Barn Owls are frequently heard and sometimes seen. On occasion, we have spied a small group of harbor seals sunning themselves on the rocks at low tide behind the house.

Bring your own motor or sail boat and store the trailer on the property. There is a nearby public boat ramp, fueling dock and our mooring buoy is available (for boats up to 28 feet) so you can sail, fish, waterski or motor throughout Buzzards Bay. Bring your boat to either private dock to embark people and supplies.

Unlike some areas of the Cape, the shallow waters of upper Buzzards Bay are warm throughout late spring/summer/fall and perfect for swimming. The beaches on-island and at Phinney's Harbor are protected from large waves and surf and are great for families with children. After rinsing off in the enclosed outdoor shower, you can relax and savor the views from the deck or enjoy a game of ladderball, whiffleball or tennis on the island’s clay court.

Filled with light, all of the rooms have large windows, most with shoreline views of Buzzards Bay. The four bedroom, two bath home is fully air conditioned and sleeps 10 comfortably. The two upstairs bedrooms have queen size beds and the downstairs bedrooms have two and three single beds respectively. A full size futon is available in the family room and the house is equipped with a portacrib, high chair, nice walking/jogging stroller and backpack for carrying your young one. With two large living areas, you and your family can enjoy time together or spread out. The downstairs family room offers great water views as well as a flat screen TV with X1 Xfinity cable, DVD player, sofas and chairs.

With generous seating, including an outdoor dining table, 6 chairs, 3 chaise lounges and a 24 foot bench, the elevated deck offers spectacular views and easily accommodates a gathering. Enjoy a grilled meal using either the gas or charcoal grill. The lawn offers a beautiful, shaded sitting area overlooking the water with 6 more chairs and 2 chaise lounges. Enjoy a shaded hammock or the sky chairs suspended from the deck. The yard offers plenty of room for whiffle ball, ladderball, badminton or croquet.

In addition to beaches on Tobey Island, it is an easy walk to a free, public beach nearby at Phinney’s Harbor. Offering a public boat ramp, Phinneys Harbor also provides a fueling dock, free showers and restrooms and is home to Bourne Community Boating which offers summer sailing school and other boating opportunities for children and adults. Summer Sailing School for children is extremely popular and an easy 5 minute walk from the house.

The village of Monument Beach, one mile away, has a post office, ice cream shop, bakery, pizza parlor and a paddlers shop with rentals. Within three miles you can find the Bourne Braves of the Cape Cod Baseball League, two small grocery stores, the Cape Cod Canal bike path and visitor center, the Bourne Public Library, the carousel at the Aptucxet Trading Post Museum, hardware, seafood and liquor stores, and numerous restaurants including favorites such as the Lobster Trap and Chart Room. Falmouth, Woods Hole, Hyannis and Mashpee are all within a half an hour. If you wish to go further afield, the Whaling Museum in New Bedford is excellent as are the Plimoth Plantation in Plymouth and Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts.

Tobey Island is quiet and secluded. Easy to reach and only 70 miles from Boston and a quick 4 miles from the Bourne Bridge, it is a world away from mini golf, tee shirt shops, roadside stands and traffic.

If you enjoy a private, peaceful, and natural setting to relax, escape to Tobey Island!

Fabulous time and wonderful place!

We spent a long weekend with friends from our Navy days years ago and had a wonderful time. The place was not only a great spot but was comfortable, very clean, bright and met all of our needs and exceeded our expectations. An outdoor shower, a large great room with sliders to a deck overlooking the water, a yard to play games and lots of places to walk. Had all the necessities to cook, plenty of space inside and out to have a great time with old friends! The home owners were very accommodating and helpful and certainly have put a lot of thought into ensuring the home has everything one would want or need for a great vacation or relaxing time away! Hoping to go back soon! show more show less

Dream location, Wonderful views

We had a wonderful time at this dream location. There are beautiful views of the water, excellent hikes around the property and on the beach. The house is in very good condition, and spacious living areas allow for fun gatherings. It's a very comfortable location for four couples. Easy access to local shops within walking distance make for a convenient stay. It's an outstanding place that we highly recommend!

Another couple from a distant location! It is always a pleasure to see people from other parts of the country come to Cape Cod for a relaxing and peaceful vacation. Dave and Julie were terrific guests and we would have no hesitation in renting the property to them in the future.

Peaceful Waterfront Home

We had a wonderful one-week stay at this cozy waterfront home on a private island setting. We enjoyed the large deck, gas grill, and outdoor shower, which were a welcome change from our daily condominium living. The kitchen is well-equipped and includes a modern dishwasher. The bed in the master bedroom is comfortable—we didn't try the others. At low tide, you can walk along a spit directly behind the house which connects to a small island. It's a pleasant walk but wear sturdy shoes (not flip flops) because it's rocky and full of shells.

Nearby, we visited Four Ponds Conservation Area and Lawrence Island. Four Ponds is only 2.5 miles away and has a network of well-maintained trails and at least one spring-fed pond. At Lawrence Island, you can take a scenic walk around the perimeter, but there's no shade and at high tide you will be sloshing around in ankle deep water.

The hosts are very accommodating. We would stay here again.

We were delighted to have Rob and his wife stay at our house on Tobey Island. They were excellent guests and we would be pleased to have them stay in the future. Due to a mis-communication with our house cleaner, the house was not prepared to our standards prior to their arrival. Rest assured that this was a one time incident and future tenants will enjoy a beautiful setting, a restful and relaxing time on the island and a well cleaned home.

Toby Island Getaway

This is a delightful spot, perfect for a relaxing getaway or as an access point to the many treats that the Cape has to offer. There are delightful harbor views from the balcony where you can spot wildlife including seals, sea eagles and much more. The island is quiet and a walk around the road gives glimpses of a luxurious past. We rode our bikes to Falmouth and Sandwich which are pretty coastal towns. We also did a day trip to Provincetown, so the whole Cape is within reach. The house has plenty of space upstairs and down. It's on the bucket list for a return visit. show more show less

Glorious Vacation spot

We spent the week in this home and could not have dreamed of a better location. The house was clean, equipped with everything needed for our stay. The bay with its shell beaches was incredible. The views and wildlife, lovely. We drank coffee on the deck in the morning overlooking the beautiful surroundings.

Walking the island was a treat, and at every turn was utter beauty. A few minutes away from the house, are local businesses, one with the best lobster rolls and another parlor with homemade ice cream. There is a wonderful market just minutes away from where we found anything we wanted in terms of groceries, locally grown and packaged goods, sweets, and even postcards. Less than a few hours away are several magnificent coastal towns with art galleries, restaurants, and loads of charm.

Nothing was better than going back to the island, where we were staying. It has a lot of room, the layout of the house is very comfortable with privacy upstairs and downstairs. The bedrooms are large as are the restrooms. There is even an outdoor shower! Being so near the water, on a secluded uncrowded beach, was simply, HEAVEN. We can not wait to go back to do more exploring!

We were thrilled to have Donna and Tony stay at our house for a week in October - a superb time of the year to enjoy the Cape! We couldn't ask for a more positive, enthusiastic and responsible couple and are so pleased that they enjoyed the house, island and surrounding area. We look forward to them returning in the future!

My parents built this home in 1972 and I have been here every summer of my life. In 2018, my husband and I became the sole owners and we have been busy making it top notch. The home, the island and area are a slice of heaven. We are excited to share it with you!

What is special about this property?
There are so many things that make this home special. When you walk in the door, the open floor plan, high stained pine ceilings, ample windows and large deck instantly relax you. It's so quiet and peaceful. When it's time for a swim, you just walk down to the dock and jump right in. If you want a walk, follow the roads and paths around the island or explore the shoreline and find shells and beach glass. On a practical note, the house is 10 minutes away from the Bourne Bridge. It's a compete escape from mainland madness.

What is special about your town?
Although Monument Beach and Bourne are easier to navigate and less impacted by tourism than the rest of the Cape, we still have much to do. We enjoy the Cape Cod Canal bike path, the Aptuxcet trading post, the Sandwich Glass Museum, the golf courses and Bourne Braves baseball. There is plenty to do in the area and Falmouth, Mashpee and Woods Hole are a quick drive to reach. The Monument Beach public beach is next to the bridge getting to the island and the Falmouth beaches are also close by.
