This private waterfront home in East Falmouth is just a barefoot walk down a private path to the warm swimming waters of Waquoit Bay. The setting, surrounded by trees, will transport you to the days before the Cape was developed. The mild waters and tidal flats make this a great location for families with children who want to spend the day in the water. South Cape beach is just minutes away for those who enjoy the expansive sand and surf of the 'outer beach'.
This vacation retreat offers a large sun-splashed living room with huge wrap-around windows; an oversized, recently improved, kitchen with generous counter space and a new stove; and a large, screen-enclosed, porch with water views - a perfect spot for cocktails or a lobster dinner. The cooling ocean breezes keep this house cool even on the hottest days.
Golf, tennis, fine dining, a movie theater, and several grocery and liquor stores are just minutes away. The Ferry to Martha's Vineyard Island and the Shining Sea Bike Path are also a short drive from the house.
We also own a rustic cottage (2 bedroom, sleeps 4) on the same property for those who want to invite additional friends or family to join the fun.
Come experience Cape Cod at its very best!

We stayed here the last week of June. We were one of the first HomeAway guests in this 1940s(?) family cottage. The house has new windows in every room, the kitchen and bathrooms have all been remodeled. We enjoyed the old books, puzzles and games. The twin bedrooms were a bit darker than pictured, but fine for kids. The location is very private, yet not too far off the main road. The owner(s) allowed us the use of the Association tennis court just a few steps down the dead end dirt road. We pretty much had the beach to ourselves – you had to walk towards the creek (to the right) and then walk out a ways to reach deep water, but the water was warm and the Bay was very quiet. The tidal marsh in front of the house was teeming with birdlife – swallows, osprey, timid blue herons… Mornings in the garden chairs with coffee and binoculars were the best!
Overall, a relaxing and affordable stay away from the hubbub. Needs guest book so vacationers can recount & recommend activities, restaurants, beaches, etc.!
