There are beautiful views in all directions around the house. The ocean is on one side and a large salt marsh is on the other. The upstairs is completely open by design to enhance the ability to see all views without obstruction.

Just came back from our annual vacation. We have rented other places on the cape but once we found this place we have never changed. We love the laid back, casual atmosphere of this rental. My husband has never been a fan of lounging on the shore like I am. He stays up by the house on the deck while I relax on the private beach. Our children are free to wander between the two of us. It is very easy to relax without having to deal with driving to the beach or crowded shores. Everything you might need is within reach. The house and kitchen are stocked better than a full time house. The appliances are immaculate and top of the line. The bathrooms are to die for. I always come home dreaming up new schemes for my baths. We have come ever since our children were infants. You can easily put the kids down for a nap, turn on a baby monitor, and head back to the beach. The house is easily equipped for kids of all ages. The number one reason we come back is for our dog. It is very difficult to find pet friendly places. Even if you do they are typically dirty and have a smell. This is never the case here. You would be hard pressed to even know if a dog has been there. Our dog absolutely loves body surfing in the waves. Where can you find a pet friendly beach? It is an absolute gem of a total (dog included) family vacation.

This was my second year staying at this newly renovated beach house in Sandwich. The house is exquisite with views of ocean or salt marsh from every window! There were some upgrades in furnishings since my stay last year. Brand new couch, coffee table and a larger dining table to accommodate larger groups. The beautiful kitchen, complete with a Kitchen Aid mixer and Keurig coffee maker was a pleasure to cook and bake for my family. Also a beautiful new grill outside was perfect for bbqs. The house is gorgeous inside. I love the openness of the upstairs with cathedral ceilings and hard wood floors. The slipper tub in the upstairs bathroom is divine. And the constant breeze from the oversized windows is nature’s air conditioning. Though there is AC when needed. We also love that it is pet friendly and we can bring our dogs. The beach is quiet and really a peaceful retreat from the craziness of life in a very sweet New England town. I highly recommend this location especially for the money. Laura is a pleasure to deal with!

From the beginning of communication with Jen and Laura, until the day of departure, everything was professional yet personnal. They were a pleasure to deal with every step of the way! The house was clean, and had every ammenity we needed. Comfortable for a family of four. No matter where we were seated we had beautiful view of the beach! The kitchen was sleek and had new appliances and was very functional. The spacious deck with a new grill allowed us to dine and relax to the sounds of the surf. We love Sandwich, quaint and non touristy. Beautiful place to kick back yet not too far from Hyannis to see a movie on a rainy day. Thanks again for sharing your home with us! We hope to make it a part of our annual Cape vacation! Cheers!

Beautiful beach, beautiful town
Beautiful beach, beautiful town
Very large, spacious, and private house, with a great kitchen. The upstairs is one very large space. The location between a salt marsh and the ocean is unique and beautiful. Jen was a pleasure to work with. I almost hate to say this for fear of wrecking it....but Sandwich is a dream town with very little tourism. Quiet and idyllic with a beautiful and historic town center. Yet, there is an excellent, large, modern supermarket. The beach is a bit rocky, but very little to complain about in this dream location.

Overall a beautiful house in a great location. Incredible views of ocean and saltmarsh, I could sit on that deck and stare at the ocean for hours and never tire of the views. Jen was easy to deal with, we were actually allowed to stay there for tropical storm Irene which was quite the experience, but the house was well prepared with the hurricane shutters and plexiglass window coverings. I was able to bring my dog which not many cottages allow, a major factor in deciding where to stay for me. The only downfalls of this place, which is why i gave 4 stars and not 5, is that the oven didn"t work (very old) and the grill wouldn"t light, and we like to cook together on vacation. Also the livingroom furniture was not very comfortable and the dining table is too small only seating 4. Despite this, I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend the location and view.

Recommended for: Sightseeing, girls getaway, families with young children, pet owners, adventure seekers, romantic getaway, age 55+, families with teenagers.
Owner response: Thank-you for your review. We appreciate any comments our guests have while spending a week with us. The oven and the grill were working the week-end before your visit. We suspect the electrical outage because of the storm damaged the stove. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and would have had the stove fixed immediately if we had known. I have replaced the stove with a Kenmore Elite Gas Stove and convection oven. A new stainless steel grill in there now and the livingroom furniture has been updated, new couch and much larger dining room table. The house was just newly renovated a year ago. We are happy you enjoyed the views and the location and found some peace of mind there on the Cape Cod bay.
