Property description

Gorgeous 3+ bedroom home on island with 1/4 mile of your own private sandy beach lined with wild beach roses and beach grass. Accessible only by boat (provided), it is directly on the water, with beach on all three sides - the entire peninsula is yours alone to enjoy!

Large landscaped yard with red cedars, oaks, herb and hosta gardens, and views of the bay and ocean in all directions. Magnificent sunsets from the wraparound deck! Bright and sunny house is beautifully designed and built by a local craftsman builder. There are water views from every room! It is filled with fine antiques, original art and oriental rugs. The clerestory living room is especially spacious and inviting. You'll have all the amenities, including a fully equipped kitchen, high end Weber gas grill, wood burning stove, satellite flat screen television, DVD player and loads of board games. Three sea kayaks, one Sunfish, rubber raft with anchor and other water toys are included. Play bocce, stick ball, croquet and badminton in your spacious yard. Ideal setting for kids to run and explore.

Island is only accessible by a 15 minute boat ride. Renters must be familiar with the use of small outboard engines. Two open flat bottomed Carolina Skiffs (12 foot and 14 foot) with 15 horsepower engines, shore dock with parking for multiple cars, and two island out-hauls included with rental.

All linen and towels are provided. The house will be cleaned, the yard, flower and herb gardens maintained and the beds made prior to your arrival. Well behaved pets considered for multi-week rentals.

Closest mainland towns include Sandwich and Falmouth with good restaurants, museums and activities the whole family will enjoy. Boston is just an hour drive from this quiet part of the Cape.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1989

About the owner: Our family grew up in the midwest but vacationed every summer on the Cape with extended family. We purchased our property on Bassett's Island in 1989, and designed and rebuilt our summer getaway in 1998 using a well known local craftsman builder. We cherish our time out on the island away from the hustle and bustle of our jobs and city living. It is a wonderful and unique place to recharge. We are pleased to share our island home with you and hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
