Beautiful views of the ocean can be enjoyed from almost every room of this vacation beach house, Idle Time. It is located on the ocean in West Yarmouth.

Downstairs, there is a smaller bedroom with a twin bed, TV and a full bathroom adjacent to the bedroom. French doors open up to a sun room/bedroom.

Idle Time is Perfect Time

This house is absolutely stunning! This is our third year renting from Terri and Ed and we have already booked for next year. We visit each year with my father who is older and he loves staying in the sunroom. It works out perfect as there is also a full bath on the main floor so he does not need to go up and down stairs if he can't. The house is always clean on our arrival. We add on the linen package so we do not need to worry about sheets, towels or beach towels.

This year was obviously different due to COVID-19 but my kids love the house as much as we do and we're happy to "chill" on the decks or lower patio. The views are spectacular especially sunsets. The house overlooks Lewis Bay and my kids love to explore the channel at low tide to see what creatures they will find. The beach is literally your backyard!

Terri had told me when I first spoke with her about renting the house that she wants this house to feel like your home while you are there and it absolutely does! Terri and Ed have been awesome. If you have questions or concerns (we couldn't get onto WIFI) they immediately answer them and take care of you.

We are already looking forward to next year!

We'll be back!

We have been making memories with our family here for about 13 years! The grandchildren love it here at Idle Time, which is centrally located to many kids' activities and many great restaurants! The house is within walking distance to a beach which was a top priority for us when house searching. The new house updates are wonderful, great deck views and Terri and Ed are very accommodating. We've already booked for another visit next year to our home away from home!

Will Definitely Return!

We spent a week at the house and really enjoyed ourselves! Even though it is close to everything, the setting is quiet and peaceful. What a treat to sit and read with a breeze off the water. The master bedroom was so comfortable, as was the guest room upstairs. Not sure how it would be to use the sunporch for sleeping. Our interactions with Terri and Ed were so pleasant. We look forward to returning.

Idle Time Thanksgiving

We have been coming to Idle Time for 16 years and have become friends with Terri and Ed. Great hosts and an amazing house with spectacular views. Very comfortable house and you can sit in the sunroom and relax and read. The views are beautiful. So much to do, so little time. Thanks you for our years of memories.

Everything Expected

First trip to Cape Cod and enjoyed everything about it. Staying at Idle Time is a treat. Beautiful area and beautiful house with a perfect Cape Cod view! Location of home is perfect as it is about Mid Cape and close to everything in any direction - including ferries and whale watching. Owners are very nice and helpful. I really can’t imagine a better base for a Cape Cod vacation!

Idle Time is the Best!

This is my 9th or 10th year at Idle Time and I love it more every year! The view from the rear decks are incredible and the Mid-Cape location is just perfect. Terri and Ed are the best owners and friends anyone could ask for. Looking forward to next year's visit already.

Another amazing stay at Idle Time!!!!

Once again the Jersey crew spent an amazing winter weekend at Idle Time in Feb. 2014. We cannot rave enough about this perfectly situated, peaceful sanctuary that melts away all the stress and tensions one may have accumulated over time. We choose to visit Idle Time in November and February for the past 14 or 1 5 years. I fell in love with the house from this website just from the pictures alone back years ago. Over these years we've developed a wonderful friendship with Terri and Ed, which we treasure. Don't waste a second thought about visiting the Cape and blissfully relaxing at Idle Time, a wonderful place to stay regardless of what time of the year you grace the Cape. show more show less

I was a teacher for 36 years and now retired. I live about 10 minutes away so I have easy access to my property, and I meet all of my guests to inform them about restaurants, things to do and places to go. It's a wonderful retirement job. I meet great people from places in Massachusetts and all over the country.

What is special about this property?
My beach house is oceanfront, close to many vacation activities, and is very clean and comfortable.

What is special about your town?
Yarmouth is located in the middle of the Cape. It has easy access to the highway so one can go to either end of Cape Cod to enjoy beaches and find interesting things to do.
