Matunuck apartment description

Whatever your needs, this summer rental is PERFECT! Enjoy prime surfing, an active nightlife, the beautiful scenery, or just relax with your family and savor the peace and quiet! The furnished, second story apartment has two bedrooms with queen-size beds, a full bath and an enormous deck with a beautiful nature preserve view, a remodeled kitchen, as well as a huge living-room with 2 futons that fold out into full-size beds! The ground floor apartment is also available for rent and has 2 bedrooms/1 full bath/a fully stocked kitchen, a living area with a futon that folds out into full-size bed and an outdoor eating/grilling area under the deck. The apartments are available separately, or together for those extended families, big events, or reunions. Enquiries on either or both apartments are welcome. It is a short walk from Matunuck State Beach—maybe 3 minutes if you take your time—near the Ocean Mist beach-bar as well as several other neighborhood bars and restaurants, a short drive from Theater-by-the-Sea and Matunuck Oyster Bar and each apartment comes with parking for 2 vehicles! You’ll also enjoy a spacious backyard and an enclosed outdoor shower (in addition to the full bathroom inside.) Each apartment has a washer/dryer, and a full complement of appliances! All you’ll need to bring is your own linens!

This vacation home is newly renovated, and each apartment has a fully stocked kitchen with everything you might need to cook up a great meal. Not only does each unit offer ideal lodgings, it is so comfortable and well equipped for fun and relaxation that you'd be able to enjoy your summer without ever leaving the property. Almost every evening brings a show of migratory birds flocking over the wetland preserve--enjoy a panoramic view out your back door--and you'll have more space than you know what to do with. Whether you want to sit outside for a relaxing drink, grill up some steaks or lobsters and fresh local corn from the nearby road-side produce vendor, listen to the live music at one of the local bars, walk on the beach, surf, bike ride, or enjoy any of the many other opportunities for fun, this property is ideally situated. Located on a very quiet, PRIVATE, cul-de-sac, where you'll never need to worry about traffic or noise from the street, in a community of laid-back, fun-loving people, this is a vacation home that will leave you wishing summer could last forever.

              Year Purchased: 2002

              Why the Owner Chose Matunuck:
              When we first stepped foot in Matunuck we loved the people and the feel of the place. It was, and remains, a laid back and comfortable place.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              This house has a large deck that overlooks a nature preserve. We have seen groundhogs, foxes, raccoons, woodchucks, and even an occasional deer--none of which ever seem to bother anyone in the neighborhood or cause any trouble. A wide variety of birds visit the preserve throughout the year. We don't need to drive to be at the ocean, to have a drink or a meal at one of the several local eateries and bars. Matunuck is an easy going place to bike, skate or just walk around. If you forget milk or eggs or want some fresh, locally grown corn, all you need do is walk or bike to the local, well stocked grocery or our own Carpenter's Farm Stand. We often walk along the beaches to turn over rocks, pick up shells, watch the surfers or just enjoy the cool sea breeze and smells. Theater by the Sea has live shows all summer...a very popular place.
