Description

Description

This unique property is on a tidal island, surrounded by both Conservation and Mass Audubon land, with no development beyond the homes tucked away in the woods. Just a short walk away from several Bay beaches.

The location is stunning; overlooking marshes with the bay in the distance and water views from all the windows. The house is extremely comfortable and well-appointed, bathed in light from its southern exposure.

There is one Queen bedroom on the first floor with the other two bedrooms (one Queen, the Master, and the other with two twins) located on the 2nd floor. With three comfy, recently reupholstered sofas, there is no excuse not to have a lie down.

As comfortable, spacious and light as the house is, the crowned jewel is the location on a wild tidal island surrounded by water. This special place is clearly not for everyone, as one needs to plan one's time around certain high tides, when you can't drive either onto or off the island with your car, because of the flooding on the road leading to the bridge on/off the island. That is, of course, when the fun begins, neighbors heading to the bridge to jump into the creek and float around on the incredible tides. Many times, guests have walked thru a water-covered road, just for the fun of it. It's a truly wonderful, communal experience.

Given the wildness of the island, a nature lover's oasis to be sure; replete with birds, foxes & fiddler crabs, oh my, one feels truly connected with nature, likely to be a most relaxing vacation, indeed.

Kids can spend hours playing in the tidal pools, catching crabs and minnows and enjoying pick-up play dates. Biking and jogging are but some of the many activities one can do on the dirt roads. Of course, there are always sunsets to be enjoyed from nearby Loagy Bay. If you are inclined, you can drive into Wellfleet, to eat oysters and pick up fresh fish to prepare for your evening meal. The town is adorable, with lots going on, but most of our guests are content to spend their time communing with nature on the island.

For those concerned about the lack of air conditioning, it can be in the 80's during the day, but the evenings are often cool, with lots of cross breezes in the bedrooms. Additionally, in addition to each room having either a box or oscillating fan, we now have several ceiling fans on the first floor. Another recent development is the changeover from satellite to underground cable internet, so much faster & more reliable.

Another note of interest, a world renowned bird author/illustrator spent his holiday here, identifying the very rare double ringed plover at 'our' beach! Come see natural beauty all around you!

    Shoulder season is the best

    If you thought high summer was the only time to visit the remote and astounding cape landscape, you may be missing the best time. For three years in a row we have been celebrating birthdays in mid October at this spectacular setting. The traffic is gone and the only crowds you're likely to see are migrating birds from the porch looking over the marsh and the bay. Sunny days warm the house and a super cozy gas fire place warms any chilly nights. The spectacularly well appointed kitchen and dining areas are perfect for cooking up the plentiful seafoods available at nearby shops. If you're looking for an intimate retreat in a beautiful location with all the comfort you need, this is it. show more show less

    Dang, the secret's out...Thanks, Mark, for that lovely review. We are always happy when guests appreciate the same things that drove us to the Island to begin with.

    Our family enjoyed two relaxing weeks in this beautiful home! The location couldn't be better. It offers sweeping views of the bay that you can enjoy from inside as well as the spacious decks and is just a hop, skip and a jump to the beautiful bayside beach. The beach is perfect for families, offering plenty of sand for playing, lots of shells and critters to hunt for the kids, and a fun "lazy river" when the tide comes in and out. The house is very comfortable and peaceful - it can feel as though you're the only ones on the island! It's also well-stocked for preparing meals big and small, including plenty of tupperware for packing lunches and picnics on the beach. The bedrooms are well-placed for privacy and the bed in the primary bedroom is among the most comfortable we have slept on in a rental home. We recommend this home without reservation and look forward to our next stay!

    This magical house was wonderful for our family of four. We were able to enjoy beach time, timing our departures off the island with the tides, and take in the beautiful sunsets! We love home cooked meals, even on vacation, and we were so excited with how well equipped this home was to grill and cook the meals that made our family vacation even more relaxing. This is a gem in Wellfleet and we can't wait to return this summer.

    For the uninitiated, Lieutenant Island in Wellfleet is a singular experience, filled with raw beauty and calm energy. Conveniently located right off of Route 6 (forgive yourself if you never noticed it - people have driven past it for decades without noticing it, part of its charm), visitors and residents take turns crossing a one-lane wooden bridge to get back and forth. As an added feature, one must be mindful of the tides, as there are times when high tide makes the bridge impassable. Some find this to be a dealbreaker; for many others, it's an enormous part of the appeal - an actual physical disconnect that helps get one in just that mindspace. As an added bonus, kids and adults regularly gather at the bridge during high tide to jump into the water. These experiences are treasures.

    ConSandia is in a perfect location, an easy walk to the private bayside beach that is perfect for families, friends, romantic partners, or solo travelers. The house itself features a gorgeous, fully-stocked modern kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and living areas, and best of all, multiple decks that give a panoramic view of the island and provide breathtaking sunrise, sunset, and stargazing vistas. The sunsets on the beach are always vivid and beautiful, a postcard each time. Plenty of easy access to all kinds of restaurants and downtown Wellfleet as well as other beaches via a short car ride.

    Lieutenant Island is a truly magical experience, and ConSandia is an ideal way to experience it and to enjoy one of New England's best-kept secrets.

    We had a wonderful week- lieutenant island was like a little oasis off the cape- beautiful views from every room in the house, great biking, kayaking and swimming. Sanford was very helpful at every step of the trip and very easy to reach for anything.

    Our family spent a week in this home in August and we were heartbroken to have to leave after just seven days. The property is on a tidal island with no development beyond the homes tucked away in the woods, just a short walk away from a bay beach. The location is stunning, overlooking marshes with the bay in the distance and water views from all the windows. The house is extremely comfortable and well appointed, but the highlight is the location on a wild tidal island surrounded by water. We loved having to plan our time around high tide, when you can't drive off the island because of the flooding on the road leading to the bridge off the island. That's when all the neighbors head to the bridge to jump into the creek and float around on the incredible tides. It's a truly wonderful, communal experience. Given the wildness of the island, we felt like we really connected with nature and it was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had for a while. Our young son spent hours playing in the tidal pools, catching crabs and minnows and enjoying pick-up play dates. We biked and jogged on the dirt roads and enjoyed sunsets from the harbor beach. We loved driving into Wellfleet every day to eat oysters and pick up fresh fish to prepare that evening. The town is adorable, with lots going on, but we preferred to spend our week communing with nature. We were worried about the lack of air conditioning, but it was in the 80s the entire time we were there and the evenings were cool with lots of cross breezes in the bedrooms. My husband and I are very discerning (Hidden by Airbnb) renters and this property offers a truly special experience. I highly, highly recommend it. show more show less

    A wonderful bright and airy house with panoramic views of salt marsh and sky, and a short walk to the small beach on the island. Highlights included morning coffee on the deck with only natural sounds audible, and dinner in the large dining room with windows on three sides and the ocean breeze flowing through. The house was well stocked with all the essentials for cooking etc. and Sanford was very accommodating and responded quickly to all of our questions.

    My family of five (three adult children and two parents) spent two weeks on Lieutenant Island at ConSandia at the beginning of August 2021-- the first vacation any of us had taken since the lockdown. To be clear, we had not been planning a vacation. We booked impulsively in March 2021, immediately after seeing pictures of the stunning views by pure chance on a neighborhood listserv. It seemed to us, trapped in our apartment, like a mirage. The pandemic had not abated five months later, but as soon as we arrived on Lieutenant Island, the rest of the world-- and most of the past year-- fell away. What seemed special about the place proved to be true: a wonderland of nature, untouched and untroubled by human concerns. A place of perfect silence. Views of the sea in every direction. Uncrowded beaches and tide-pools alive with fiddler crabs. The first morning, we watched a fox leap upon a mouse for breakfast. The same fox trotted along the road ahead of us for part of our run. None of us birdwatchers, we started noticing and trying to identify the colorful birds perched in all the trees. The house is beautiful, tasteful, and very homey. Every chair wants to be curled up in. There are shelves of good books in most rooms. A long dining room table, surrounded by windows. The kitchen is spacious, well-equipped and a natural gathering place at the beginning and end of every day. We were revived by our stay in this magical place. It turned out to be everything that we had hoped for, and more. show more show less
