Come and enjoy a beach vacation on Cape Cod in this updated 4 season OCEANFRONT home nestled in the dune on its own private beach in the Historic seaside town of Sandwich. Conveniently located less than 10 miles from the Bourne & Sagamore Bridges, this quaint one+ acre gated property is also just 60 miles from Boston, Provincetown and Providence off a private sandy road near cranberry bogs, old conservation lands and scenic walking trails.

Drop your bags and settle into this vintage styled beautiful home as you will feel worlds away from the daily hustle and bustle of life during your stay with the beach as your back yard. The main level features an open floor plan that beckons guests to spend time together in a comfortable and relaxing living area w/ large flat screen cable TV and surround sound stereo system (w/ac). It's the perfect cozy atmosphere to watch a movie, listen to some old tunes, play a game, chit-chat and laugh late into the night. The adjoining dining area and nicely equipped kitchen is a great place to cook and enjoy a favorite recipe or two. And don't forget there is a hidden convenient laundry area with full size washer and dryer available.

When you're ready to play outside, the beach awaits you for an afternoon of surf and sand. Swim, sunbathe, build sandcastles, stroll along the beach, gather seashells, play horse shoes, relax, read a good book and soak up the sun and sea salt air.

When it's time to explore, there are many wonderful fun places to venture out and see. You can spend the day touring and sightseeing around the Cape and Islands, shopping, whale watching, fishing, golfing or take in an evening concert, a lantern tour of an old graveyard, a Cape Cod baseball game, a festival (oyster and scallop), etc. Or start with the charming village of Sandwich, just minutes away, with its famous Sandwich Boardwalk, Historic attractions, museums, quaint antique shops, art galleries, miniature golf, popular restaurants, ice cream shops and plenty of retail therapy.

Take a break and have a family meal and drinks on the intimate breezy Oceanside patio where you can relax under the shade or under the stars. The delightful outdoor dining space features a table, bench, chairs, colorful market umbrella, outdoor stereo speakers and a small propane gas grill. From there, wander up the steps and onto the boardwalk and gaze out at your own private stretch of sand and sweeping views of Cape Cod Bay.

At the end of the day when you're all tired out from your adventures, tumble into one of the cottage's many comfy beds letting the sound of the ocean waves lull you into a dreamy sleep. The pretty master bedroom (king w/ac) on the main level has a flat screen TV and attached newly tiled bath with a large walk-in rainfall shower, handheld sprayer and bench seat. Upstairs, the large 2nd bedroom (king and cozy built-in twin, w/ac) has a flat screen TV, amazing sunrise views, and shares a newly tiled bath (tub/shower combo w/sloped ceiling) with the adorable 3rd bedroom (queen and cozy built-in twin w/sloped ceiling, w/ac) also has a flat screen TV and has stunning views out over the Bay to watch the sunsets and boats navigating the canal.

There are also outdoor games like bean bag toss, horse shoes, bocce ball, and books, board games, decks of cards, security cameras, etc. at the property too. Being just feet from the beach the cottage only affords upstairs ocean views. The beach can be a bit rocky some years as it changes with storms so water shoes are suggested.

    Best Family Vacation Spot

    This house was incredible and so perfect for our family vacation! The house was exactly as described (even better in person). Fully stocked it was the perfect home away from home and cannot forget that it is just steps away from the beach! The owners are amazing and incredibly thoughtful. They were available if we needed them and checked in to make sure we didn't need anything (plus left the most thoughtful welcoming gift). We will definitely be returning!

    Dear Cathy and Mike,
    Thank you so much for a home-away-from-home vacation. From the moment we walked in to gluten free treats and bags to head to the beach with, we have felt welcomed and genuinely as though we could relax and enjoy our time on the Cape. Thank you so much for opening your lovely cottage to our family!
    Sincerely, The B's. Georgia

    Never Disappoints!

    Hi Cathy & Mike - Sue and I had another fabulous vacation at your lovely cottage right on the beach. As soon as we closed the gate to the driveway and headed to the cottage, we were both so excited to be "home" again!
    Your reliable attention to detail, the way the cottage is decorated, the beach right outside the door, truly make this a magical place. We stayed at another house last year when your cottage was not available, and prior to finding you, had stayed elsewhere on the Cape Cod Bay, but NOTHING compares to your little jewel box. First, feet in the sand. Then, when we opened the door, to see the birthday celebration stuff you left for us - the cake was our nighttime snack and that first night we lit the candles and sang to ourselves...Glad there was no one nearby...so incredibly thoughtful, always, thank you, Cathy.

    This year, we walked 10,000 steps on the beach everyday...loving watching the antics of the seagulls, roll of the ocean coming to shore and just the pure peace and quiet. All of our favorite foodie places were available this year - having survived the pandemic and able to make it another year - Chew (breakfast and lunch), Moto Pizza, the ice cream place on the hill on 6A, Amari's. We also used your well-appointed kitchen to make some evening goodies with our cocktail and also to make some scrumptious salads.
    As usual, we did more than we needed to of shopping! We love to shop up here for Christmas. Sara Campbell has become a bad habit:)

    The most important part of our trip was staying at your place. Relaxing on the beach and just snuggling into your most comfortable couches to read a book or two are always the cherry on the cake. Oh, and sleeping in your dreamy comfy beds and linens - remarkable.

    I cannot remember how many vacations we have spent with you - I think at least 5...no surprise, this is "the" place for us (and we are nice, but picky)!

    Both of you keep well and have a wonderful fall and winter and we will see you next year.

    Cathy,
    thank you for sharing this beautiful and magical cottage with our family. We made many memories with our kids collecting rocks, swimming, playing a ton of games and of course watching the spectacular sunsets. Your hospitality was amazing. Thanks again, The Z's.

    Cathy,

    Many thanks for your incredible hospitality and kindness as our host. These two weeks have been magical for our family of 3. We can't thank you enough for all you have done to ensure our stay in the cottage was just perfect. We will leave having made lasting family memories because our time here was just so special. Thank you, again. Fondly, The W's.

    Perfect family vacation home!

    My family and I have been lucky enough to rent this home a few times, and it never disappoints! The convenience of being right on the beach, coupled with the privacy this home affords is unlike any other home we have rented in the 10+ years we have been vacationing on the cape. We rent this home with another couple and their young son, and feel it is the perfect way to vacation at the beach with kids - no schlepping chairs and toys! The house is very well-stocked with beach towels, chairs, and even toys to keep the kids busy and excited. And the on-site laundry makes it so easy to keep up with the amount of laundry that can be generated from daily trips to the beach!
    But perhaps the main reason we keep returning to this property are the amazing owners, Cathy and Michael. They are so friendly, helpful and generous with their guests. Cathy takes the time to personally be on-site each week to turn the house over and make it welcoming and inviting to the incoming guests. She is extremely responsive and genuinely wants to make your stay as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Truly and A+ rental experience. We will be back again next year and can't wait!

    Doesn't Get Any Better Than This!!!!

    This was our third trip to this cottage and it gets better every year! I am a snob about linens and décor and I fell in love with this place our first year - it is impeccable, designed with the comfort of the guests in mind in every way and now feels like we are "coming home" each time we step inside!

    Cathy has a way of knowing just what you will want and need - crisp linens, fabulous towels, beach equipment and towels, the TV with premium channel, everything clean, clean, clean, etc. etc. etc.

    This little piece of calm was just what we needed for a break from this crazy world this year...We opened the door and were greeted with a bouquet of balloons for our joint birthdays, tote bags, amazing cupcakes which we limited to one each per day, and the wonderful sound of NOTHING! After unpacking, we took a long walk on the beach, right outside our door...love doing this at the start of the day with coffee in hand and at sunset with wine in hand!

    The kitchen is easy to use with everything you will need and we did cook a few meals this year because we were staying safe re restaurant visits. We also found it easy to eat outside at most of our favorite haunts - especially Chew Café in Sandwich - perfect breakfasts and lunches and take out. We also ate on the porch at Scargo Café in Dennis a couple of times - very special meal always and worth the trip.

    We usually do a lot of holiday shopping and this year was no different...and since this is "hard work" at the end of the day we were happy to return to this little peaceful enclave, walk the beach, and watch a couple of good movies and turn in early for a restful night listening to the sound of the waves.

    We have rented many homes in Maine, on the Cape, in Connecticut, Upstate NY, at the Jersey Shore - and, well, you get the picture...NONE of them is as welcoming and well-appointed as this cottage by the sea. We will always return year after year and if you are planning a vacation, this should be top of your list!

    Thanks, Cathy, for another stellar memory! See you in September...
    Ellen and Sue

    Another amazing and magical stay!
    We love coming to this oceanfront cottage every summer! It's beautifully decorated and is very spacious, comfy, peaceful, private and very clean!  It's an incredible location with the beach at the back door! 

    Don't pack much since everything you need is already at the cottage for a wonderful time. Plan to just chill out on the beach and relax in the sun to the sound of the waves and the smell of the sea salt air. On clear nights you can gaze at the stars and see the lights of Ptown and occasionally see some fabulous fireworks up and down the beach. We've been coming here for years and we'll be back again next summer as this is the highlight of our travels!

    Cathy-
    The cottage is awesome...so comfortable! Thank you so much for the extra touches you left for us. The kids enjoyed playing with the tea set. Love the balloons. Also, thank you for the special surprise in the fridge! The cupcakes were delicious - we celebrated with a beach fire at sunset. We had a wonderful week filled with great memories. Thank you for sharing your beach house with us.

    What is special about this property?
    Our property is very private and beautiful with a private beach. Our home is very relaxing - a great place to get away to from the hustle and bustle of the world. Being direct beachfront let's you step right outside to watch the sunrise over the ocean while sipping your coffee or tea in the morning. In the afternoon sunbathe, soak up the sun, take a walk or jog along the seashore, sit and read a book and enjoy the sea salt air, play games, swim in the water or fish. In the evening have a picnic or clambake and cocktails while watching the spectacular sunsets with a beach fire awaiting the stars above to sparkle in the moonlit sky- while the waves crash below at your feet.

    In the spring time there are right whales swimming in the Bay. They are amazing! For the curious observer they can be tracked online to see where they are located around the Cape. There are also seals swimming about. They like to come ashore to rest and nap quietly on the beach. Of course seasonally, many different types of birds fly about and are a joy to watch, from piping plovers, loons, blue herons, osprey and sparrows to the full time hawks, seagulls and others in our area. In the summer our property is bedazzled with lots of beautiful butterflies too. Rabbits run about most of the year making mad dashes through the grasses and shrubs hiding and playing but still keeping an ever watchful eye out for meandering red foxes that wander around our property.

    What is special about your town?
    Incorporated in 1639, Sandwich is a beautiful historic seaside town located about 60 miles from Boston, Provincetown and Providence just over the Cape Cod Canal. It is one of the oldest towns in the United States, settled in 1637, over 125 years before the American Revolution.The Cape Cod Canal was opened in 1914 and at that time became the widest sea level canal in the world. The Canal connects Buzzards Bay and Cape Cod Bay. It is 17.4 miles long, 480 feet wide and 32 feet deep. Sandwich was the first town established on Cape Cod and local landmarks and working museums are very close by and offer a glimpse into the past for history buffs. Local farmers markets and flea markets are full of great goodies and finds. Art lovers will enjoy the many art galleries, antique shops and local artists studios in the area. Sandwich also offers biking and walking trails, bird sanctuaries, beautiful lush gardens and saltwater estuaries along with its beautiful seashore. Sandwich's downtown village has great shops and restaurants to enjoy. For the adventurer, there are beautiful marshes in Sandwich where kayaking gives the vacationer a wonderful experience of being part of nature up close and personal. Sandwich is a coastal town not to be missed while visiting Cape Cod, if not for its beauty then for its rich history.
