Monument Beach house description

The house is in Monument Beach, which is in the town of Bourne. Bourne is a quiet, accessible Cape Cod town which is 'off the beaten path' relative to more well-known towns. It is a classic wooden shingled house with a private beach. We have owned this house for 40 years, we are not property managers.

Please feel free to ask us for an in-person tour of the house, or access to a youtube video of the home. The house is more terrific than is possible to convey here.

The house is relatively large, with a deep porch wrapping around half its perimeter, half of which faces the beach. The house was recently renovated. All of the bedrooms have picture windows, and three of the bedrooms have stellar water views while the fourth looks out on the park.

The house is situated on Phinney's Harbor, which is the first harbor south of the Canal on Buzzards Bay on the Cape side of the Bridge. It is a gorgeous harbor with warm water and terrific conditions for children, sailing, kayaking, and fishing. The house is West facing, and blessed with perfectly stellar sunsets


Adjacent to the property is a park with a jungle gym, swings, a basketball court, tennis courts and a field adequately large for a pick-up game of baseball. One appealing feature of the house is its accessible location. Due to its proximity (4 miles) to the Bourne Bridge, it is easy to get to. One can frequently make the trip to the house from Boston in less than an hour and a half, even on Friday afternoons. This means that if not everyone in the family is on vacation during the rental, everyone can at least be together on the evenings.
Although this is a lovely spot, our home is not available for weddings or parties.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Our favorite feature of the house would have to be the beautiful sunsets that light up the sky across the bay in front of the porch. If you have children they will enjoy the playground and the tennis courts adjacent to the house.
