Description

Description

The Basics:
1) Available nightly with a 2 night minimum (Oct through May)
2) Your dog is welcome
3) Many restaurants, year round businesses and beaches within 3 miles.
4) Our calendar is always up to date.


Park your car in the sparkling white clamshell driveway at The Hibiscus House, bring in the groceries and you're done. Everything else you need is here.

While the folks back home swelter in the summer heat, you take a leisurely stroll to Colonial Acres Beach. You sip chilled lemonade and feel the cool sand between your toes while you relax in a beach chair.

Seagulls and sailboats delight in the gentle breezes as they zigzag the harbor. Your children splash and play in Lewis Bay, taking a break only when Dad asks them to help him catch minnows and fish in the channel. You feel all your cares float away as you enjoy some summer reading or just sit and relax.

Later, you return to the cottage and take an exhilarating outdoor shower. You satisfy your appetite, that has been peaked by the salt air, by enjoying a sumptuous backyard barbecue.

The Hibiscus House is a short walking distance to several fine casual restaurants which offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. A bagel deli, an ice cream shop, miniature golf, convenience stores, a church and a library are also conveniently located. However, if wanderlust should overtake you, just hop in the car and explore-either way, enjoy your Cape Cod Experience!

***Details about the house***

''A Walk to the Beach Summer Rental''

1/1/2017 - Internet Speed improved. 28Mbs Download 5Mbs Upload speed (Wifi speed may be slower depending on your Wifi Card)
Our house is well equipped, but you must supply your own sheets and towels -available at an extra charge of $35.
4/10ths of a mile (8 minute walk) to Colonial Acres Beach.
1/10th of a mile from Rte 28 - central road for Cape Cod-restaurants
and shopping plus activities.
We have a pleasant fairly private back yard, lots of birds.

LOCATION: The Hibiscus House is close to the intersections of Bradford and Standish Way in West Yarmouth. The cottage is exactly 4/10 ths of a mile from Colonial Acres Beach at the end of the street, and 1/10th of a mile from Rte. 28, convenient to everything.
There is a sidewalk to the beach four tenths away at the end of Standish Way.
Our neighborhood beach -Colonial Acres Beach is a short 4/10ths of a mile down the street and has free parking, bike racks. Seagull Beach is a mere 2.5 miles away, and there are dozens of Cape Cod beaches within a 5 mile radius. We find that our guests like to visit them all.

The Hibiscus house is located in ''The Heart of Cape Cod'', the MidCape which is within reach of just about everything. The island ferries are only 2.5 miles away, in Hyannis where you will find nightlife, fine dining, shopping and more..

From June First Through October The Hibiscus Beach House is rented only by the week. (Sat to Sat) $875-$1300 508-778-4557 depending on the week.
We have a 2 night minimum at all other times of year.
All prices are subject to change without prior notice.
Your Dog is welcome. No Smoking Please.

We have a web site at www.CapeCodFunAndSun.com where we have 75 links to many of the more popular activities, such as Kayaking, Golf, Boating and Fishing, Shopping, etc.

The Hibiscus House is a comfortable, bright and light, 2 bedroom ranch style house. The house has maple hardwood floors throughout which is complemented with area rugs.

The bathroom: If you are taller than average or have mobility considerations you may find the toilet placement in our house a tight squeeze. It has not been an issue in 13 years of renting, but please look at the picture of
our bathroom in our listing.
The kitchen and master bedroom (1 Queen bed) and full bath are facing east (backyard) and thus get plenty of morning light. The guest bedroom (1 twin & 1 full size bunkbed) and living room face west and thus get plenty of afternoon light.

We have window ac units in the master bedroom and the living room which are on opposite ends of the house, yet most of our guests find it unnecessary except for the occasional heatwave. Due to the East/West layout and proximity to the shore you will find the cottage is Cape Cod ''bright and breezy'', and we also have fans. In the shoulder season when heating is needed you will love the toasty radiator heat-like having a warm fireplace in every room!
The kitchen with table, is fully equipped with all the utensils, pots & pan, dishware, range/oven, fire extinguisher, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, toaster, microwave, blender, thermos - you name it. There wasn't room for a dishwasher - that is manual and dish washing soap and a new sponge and clean dishtowels are always provided. Here you will also find helpful brochures, restaurant menus, a map, supermarket directions, a list of dog friendly beaches, information about ''hidden'' Cape Cod beaches, running routes, and favorite walks, playgrounds, free tennis courts, where to find free parking in Hyannis. etc.

The living room and the guest bedroom both have televisions. Vcrs, Dvd players and stereo (living room only) The house has wifi. And you will find a small library of movies to watch and books to read, as well as games.

Exit to the backyard through the kitchen door and you will find a gas grille with tank and backup gas tank, a charcoal grille (bring your briquettes), a bird feeder, the ever popular hammock, outdoor shower, and a convenient trash bin on the driveway side of the house. The backyard feels fairly private.
Use the bulkhead to enter the basement where you will find the washer and dryer games and sand toys. This is a good place to store your bicycles when not in use. The bulkhead has a padlock.

Our neighborhood (Colonial Acres) has a very friendly community feeling to it - probably our most favorite thing about living here. There are sidewalks all of the way down to Colonial Acres Beach at the end of the street. Free parking, bike racks, sunshine, friendly faces-you will feel right at home.

As an added bonus, Jean and Bob live in the neighborhood and that's convenient should a problem arise. It happens rarely, but when it does, Bob is there to reset that circuit breaker, or troubleshoot the WiFi.

The Hibiscus house is within reach of just about everything--the MidCape is a central location! The island ferries are only 2.5 miles away. Numerous beaches, restaurants, shopping and more are all nearby.

Title of review (from Tripadvisor) "Awesome"

House was well stocked. Owners super nice and helpful with any questions. Tons of stuff to do in the area, for kids and adults. Beach was a short walk away and owners provide wagon for all your beach gear. Yard was nice, house was clean, Very happy with this rental for the week.

Review title from tripadvisor "Wonderful location, charming cottage, perfect hosts!

I LOVED the week with my sister and 2 year old Bichon Frise at Hibiscus House. It was the perfect location: a 5 minute drive from my conference in Hyannis, and a short walk to the neighborhood beach. Bob was gardening when I arrived and stopped to chat, later adding yoga recommendations to the already fantastic giant reference book that he and Jean provide - guides to sights, restaurants, all that we needed! Everything was extremely well taken care of, instructions were meticulous. We met gracious, welcoming neighbors on our daily dog walks down to the beach. Plenty of room and supplies. I would absolutely book again and definitely give Bob and Jean my highest possible praise! show more show less

From TripAdvisor Title "Amazing"

Bob and Jean were awesome! The house is adorable. It was everything we needed for a comfortable visit. It is 2 miles to the ferries that take you to the islands and wonderful restaurants. We didn't have children with us...but the area has a lot of fun things to do for kids. Bob has thought of everything for his renters. He has a guide book that we used often. We had our dog with us and it worked out great!!! We cannot wait to visit again.

From Airbnb: We had a great stay at the Hibiscus House! We brought our dogs and we loved being able to walk down the quiet road to the beach. The cottage is charming, cute and well appointed and was a perfect fit for us. Rob and Jean were super flexible and hospitable and easy to commuicate with. We wish our visit could have been longer and we look forward to booking with them again.
Since we were down there for many things including a road race, they left us gives of health treats and electrolytes which were such a nice gesture. We would definitely recommend booking with Rob and Jean and staying here. show more show less

Well maintained house, lovely setting

We stayed here during a unusual week of oppressive humidity, and we were grateful for the cool breezes the backyard offered and the ac in the house. The owners were attentive and thoughtful, and you will know that from the very clean and well cared-for house. It's a beautiful neighborhood that is very quiet with little auto traffic and lots of people walking and enjoying the outdoors. Because of the way the lot is situated, you'll find a lot of privacy here too. There are no houses behind the rental, one house on one side, with a quiet owner, and a dirt lane on the other side of the house, before the next house.

It was close to anything you need, including a very short walk to the bagel and coffee shop, which served nice quality food and had friendly service.

Several people wrote of the backyard wildlife, and as a homeowner with a large yard and wildlife activity, I thought that wouldn't matter to me. I was wrong! The birds were very active at the feeder and we really enjoyed watching them close up. We had a mama duck and 6 ducklings parade through the backyard a couple of times, and several bunnies all day long. Squirrels stealing fallen bird food were cute, too.

While the house is charming, it is also up to date. The walls are drywall and painted, with closed ceilings, finished wood floors, an up-to-date bathroom, and everything you need in the kitchen. Often summer rentals have wood walls or open beams but that is not the case here. It is a year-round house, with beachy charm. It was also very nice to have use of the washer and dryer in the basement.

We love the Cape in October - no crowds and our dog Morgen loves being able to swim and run on the beach. Hibiscus house was incredibly comfortable for us just a cute little place, and felt very relaxing.
We haven't been to the Cape in 12 years but we're determined to make this a great vacation.
Thanks so much! Mary, David, B & Jake + Jeff and of course Morgen

Bob & Jean,
Its Friday already! :( The week flew by but we had a great week. Saw the 100 year old weeping beech tree in Yarmouth. It was incredible! Great sunsets this week. Caught a breathtaking one at Chatham light!
Bluesfest concert at Melody Tent was cool! Brought us back to our 70's days :) Great beach weather! Thanks again for our 8th week at the house. Carrie and John H.
p.s. Thank you for trouble shooting the internet. :)

Dear Jean and Bob,
Thanks for letting us enjoy the place for a week. Its has been a bliss and total recovery from our hectic week in NYC.
The weather was great. We enjoyed the beech, Sandy Pond and went whale watching to Provincetown.
But most of all we enjoyed the backyard, the birds, rabbits and squirrels were lovely. We even saw a humming bird this morning. We don't have those in Finland!
Thanks again and have a lovely Summer!

Bob & Jean,
Here we are again! This is our fourth visit in 8 years. Do we need to say we love it here!
Thanks for everything. Weather was just lovely and the Cape had more people here than usual at this time of year. We will be back soon. See you then. Rob & Khris C. Hellertown PA

We arrived the day after Hurricane Irene left. The weather was gorgeous and the sea was active and fierce. The cottage was such a relaxing place to call home as we spent our days at the National seashore and kayaking thru the salt marshes in Nauset.
Never have I been in more need of some time away and as always Cape Cod delivered. If we didn't force them I sure the dogs would choose to stay.
I am thankful my long time best friend found this place.
