East Falmouth house description

Our beautiful, large five bedroom home sleeps 12 comfortably! Plenty of room for everyone to eat, sleep, play, etc, even on the occasional rainy day.

Only a 5 minute walk or 2 minute bike ride to the Acapesket Association Beach (private beach!), which overlooks Martha's Vineyard. As the photos show, the beach has a volleyball court, jetty for fishing and crabbing, great shelling and rock collecting and beautiful sand dunes. The front of the beach is on the ocean facing Martha’s Vineyard. The back of the beach is on Green Pond and is perfect for younger children with warm, shallow water and lots of little ocean creatures to keep them occupied. Note that the beach limits the total # of people from this house to TEN, as that is the official occupancy. But also note that there are lots of town beaches mere minutes away if you want to check them out!

The house has hardwood floors throughout (tile in the kitchen and bathrooms). We re-did all the hardwood in 2009, and all the tile is new in 2009.

40' Flat panel HDTV in the very large living room, plus 4 other TVs throughout, including one in the finished basement gameroom, one in the bedroom with a king bed, and one in the bedorom with a queen bed (all of course have cable TV). WiFi throughout the house. The living room has plenty of couch space to fit everyone staying at the house, and is a very large room and a highlight of the house.

The game room in the finished basement gives added space, too. Several couches, cable TV, and a 6' (slightly smaller than usual) pool table. New carpet and repainted in 2011. This is a great overflow room, maybe for the kids at night or on the occasional rainy day. Both the kids and the adults will appreciate this separation!

A/C units in all five bedrooms really take the edge off on those hot summer nights! The exact bed configurations is:

BR 1 (first floor) Queen (TV)
BR 2 (first floor) 2 twins
BR 3 (second floor) King & pull out couch (TV)
BR 4 (second floor) Queen and 1 twin
BR 5 (second floor) Full and 1 twin

The sun room is perfect for eating, sitting, reading, relaxing! This room is a big hit with our guests.

The large kitchen has a large dining table, with several leafs for expansion to sit everyone!

The kitchen is in great shape. Electric stove, dishwasher, microwave, and a side-by-side refrigerator.

Nice gas grill (new in 2010) in the back yard, we also keep an extra propane tank full on site, so you don't have any 'out of gas' emergencies in the middle of cooking up the fish you just caught.

The shed in the yard makes great storage for your bikes, should you bring them. And new in 2010 we put an enclosed outdoor shower off the shed. It even has a light if you want to shower at night.

We truly believe we have provided for EVERY need you might have! This is the absolute perfect vacation home. We sincerely hope you enjoy our home as much as we do!

While we do not provide linens or towels, we do have a solution if you don't want to bring yours. We recommend SleepTight Falmouth - you can pick up your linens right when you pick up your rental keys! Call 508 548 5412 for info on renting linens and/or towels.

Please note that while we allow up to 12 to stay in our home, the Acapesket Association Beach limits the number of people using the beach from this house to a strict 10 people (2 per bedroom). However, the town beaches do not restrict the # of people. Call me if you want me to clarify this. Thanks.

              Falmouth is great! So close to everything. 20 minutes from the Bourne Bridge, 1.5 hour drive from Boston or Providence, RI. Falmouth's Main St, just 2 miles from the house, has tons of shops, restaurants and bars. Falmouth also has 3 ferries to Martha's Vineyard. The association beach for this house overlooks MV.

              Hyannis (great town, ferry to Nantucket) is 1/2 hour drive away. Provincetown (great town too!) is 1.5 hours away or less. Whale watching out of Barnstable (1/2 hour) is great too.

              Falmouth also is home to the world famous Woods Hole, the Titanic was first discovered out of boats based here.

              We also have an amazing 11 mile bike path, much of it goes right by the sea.

              So much to do. I've lived here most of my life, feel free to ask me what is best!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Dennis bought this house with a friend in 2009. He lives in Falmouth and owns a real estate agency in Falmouth. He enjoys traveling, boating, playing basketball and lacrosse, long distance biking, & spending time with his family and friends. Dennis is Vice-Chair of the Falmouth Zoning Board of Appeals, and on the Board of JazzFest Falmouth, a regional Jazz Festival in Falmouth. He is a board member of Arts Falmouth, and also serves on the Government Affairs Committee of both the Cape Cod & Islands Board of Realtors, and the State Board of Realtors. A 1992 graduate of Harvard University, Dennis owns 5 vacation rentals in Falmouth, and manages about 300 more through his company Donahue Real Estate on Main St in Falmouth.

              Why the Owner Chose East Falmouth:
              We simply love this location. The Acapesket Beach Association's beach is only a 5 minute walk away. It is a great beach! It overlooks Martha's Vineyard.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The sun porch is so wonderful... take breakfast out there (or any meal!). The backyard is nice and spacious. And all 5 bedrooms are very good sized - one is so large we have set 1/2 of it up as a living area with a futon couch and TV! The finished basement allows the kids (of all ages) to enjoy their evenings in the game room, or watch a different movie or TV show than the people upstairs. In all, we believe we have thought of everything you will need to have a wonderful week on Cape Cod!
