                        This is not your ordinary house, in your ordinary street, this is an amazing 'island' of relaxation on a sand bar with 360degree views that will just make you want to melt into one of the many soft seats on the wrap around veranda and just gaze out at the nature and wonder that surrounds you whilst you let your mind slip into neutral and your body free's itself of any stress or strain. Wonderful location, beautiful inside and out. Susan (owner) is responsive and easy to deal with, but I doubt you will need her as the place is the best equipped vacation home I have come across. Enjoy!

                        This house is great! Upon arrival, the house was noticeably neat and clean. It is obvious that Susan (the owner) takes great pride in the house and it's surroundings. It is very nicely trimmed and furnished, and has a very well-equipped kitchen. There are amazing views of Cape Cod Bay and/or the tidal Salt Marsh from every room. We enjoyed seeing lots of wildlife during our stay in late September, including countless birds of many different species, and a fox on the marsh side. We also got to witness up close a tremendous flock of tree swallows apparently working their way down south. On the bay side, there seemed to be a whole different variety of birds and ducks, and we even saw a seal looking for a meal near the marsh inlet. The beach was very clean, but had more rock than sand while we were there, but understand that the amount of sand varies depending on a variety of weather-related factors. We walked on the beach a lot during our stay, collecting unique looking rocks and shells, and enjoying the sea air that gave us a much needed break from our allergies. Susan was very responsive before, during, and after our stay. She is very easy to deal with and was always courteous, kind, and reasonable. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in a beautiful house and enjoy the peaceful surroundings here, just a little bit off of the well-beaten paths of the cape. We definitely look forward to another opportunity to stay here!

                        This house is even more beautiful than the pictures could possibly show. We had a small wedding ceremony on the beach and couldn't ask for a better setting. The house was beautifully decorated and had everything we could possibly need. We enjoyed a peaceful week on the beach and will most certainly be back! BEST HONEYMOON EVER!

                        Our family, my husband and I and three college/high school age kids stayed for a wonderful peaceful week. Everyone relaxed and enjoyed the sun, and seashore and beautiful spacious house and each others company. We barely left the house apart from essential trips to buy food supplies! Lovely to watch the sun rise and the ever changing views of the salt marsh and sea, each day beautiful and different to the next. Definitely a great place to bring some paints or pencils and sit and take in the beauty, we went and bought some at a craft store about 20 mins away near Hyannis. The house was clean and very well equipped and as beautiful as it looked in the description on the website. We loved all the outdoor seating areas which were comfortable and allowed you to sit in shade or sun at any time of the day. We all loved the place and hope to go back one day!

                        We spent a week at this house with our two young children, ages 3.5 and 15 months. The house provides stunning views of the ocean and surrounding marshland. The breeze off the ocean was so refreshing! We really enjoyed the covered porches because they allowed us to spend a lot of time outside without worrying about getting sunburned. The beach is steps from the house and was nearly deserted. We would set up umbrellas and beach toys in the morning and leave them there all day without fear they would disappear. Susan provides beach chairs, towels, umbrellas, etc. which made things a lot easier on us. Traveling with young kids means you are lugging lots of stuff. We loved this house because it really limited what we had to bring. The kitchen is beautifully appointed. There are plenty of high quality pots and pans for cooking, and lots of serving platters and bowls for entertaining. Even bakeware for rainy days! Best of all, it was CLEAN. Rentals can be downright disgusting sometimes but this place was immaculate. We rented a crib and high chair through Auntie Vi's rentals and that worked out great. For families traveling with young kids, just be aware that there are no gates and an open ledge off the back deck (it would only be a 3 foot fall though). So you need to keep your eye on the kids but it was not a problem for us. The beach is rocky and our nearly 4 year old loved throwing rocks in the water. There is some soft sand closer to the dunes which was adequate for sand castles. Definitely invest in water shoes for the whole family prior to hitting the beach. I also recommend bringing a kite to the beach. We had fun doing that nearly every day. There is something about this house that is incredibly relaxing. I think it's the ocean views from nearly every window. We would put our kids to bed and then enjoy a drink the deck as the sun went down. This place is good for kids AND parents...this is the first place that checked both boxes for us. We will be back next year!

                        I am a vacation snob insofar as I am very particular about the place where I stay. The owner has created a very special place in the Cape. The home is placed perfectly with the picturesque ocean and beach in back and natural beauty of the marsh in front. There is plenty of decks and appointings to sit outside and enjoy the scenery. The setting is quiet, off the beaten path away from the hectic parts of the Cape and peaceful. It is a a great place to go and unwind. The home is spacious, immaculate, well appointed with elegant but causual furnishings througout. It was an absolute pleasure to stay. Note the beach is the cold water side of the Cape but we found it to be very refreshing, crystal clear with almost no seaweed. The beach has nice sand but also lots of rocks near the waters edge and into the water so bring water shoes or flip flops. One note there is no central air, but you rarely need it given the amazing coastal breezes. The owner was a pleasure to work with and always very responsive. We had no complaints and truly just enjoyed every part of this wonderful vacation spot. Would highly recommend it!

                        From a value perspective, this property is at the top. We've rented on the Cape for years. Sandwich is our favorite location to stay -- you're on the Cape so that drives to the Outer Cape's beaches and locales are reasonable but just over the bridge so we don't spend all day Saturday in traffic on our way in and our way out. Sandwich is a lovely historic town with all the vacation amenities. From great pizza (Sweet Tomatoes), to fine dining (Belfry Inn & Bistro), and very good wine and cheese shop (The Brown Jug). Ice cream, shopping, mini golf etc are all right in town including grocery, pharmacy and liquor stores. This home is the best cared for that we've stayed at to date. It comfortably slept our family of four. The children each had their own room and the master bedroom faces the sea. Windows all around plus wrap around decks make the place airy and light and allow one to find shade regardless of the time of day or worship the sun if that's your thing. Stairs to the beach provide access to over a mile of beach for walking or swimming. A previous review indicated that this home's interior is like a Pottery Barn catalog and that's about right. Very well appointed. A top-end kitchen. All around luxury. Susan is a gracious and attentive host. We had a minor problem early in the week, shot her a quick email and got an almost immediate reply and solution. The neighborhood was quiet. The beach private. It couldn't have been better or more relaxing. We're looking forward to returning next year.

                        A beautiful property - What sets this one apart from other luxury properties in the Sandwich area is it's great location and the expansive decks that allow guests to take full advantage of the fabulous views of extensive marshland from the front of the house and the beach at the back. Being at the western end of the beach, it is also much less congested (hence quiet) than properties further east down the beach. The house itself is top class with beautiful furnishings, high end appliances, and all the conveniences one needs for a great vacation. Well done Susan.

                        We recently rented this home for a week and were pleasantly surprised upon our arrival. The pictures online are gorgeous, but seeing this home and its views are nothing short of breathtaking! I felt like I was living in the Pottery Barn catalog - it was so well appointed. Every detail was perfect - the bed was comfortable (we only used the master suite), the kitchen was gourmet, and the view...oh the view! Every detail of our stay was exactly how we imagined and Susan was great to work with. We hosted a very small wedding (about 15 people) and had a clam bake on the beach. Everyone was so complimentary of the house. I would highly recommend staying here, you won't be disappointed!

One of my favorite things to do is share this property with family and friends. I cannot express how much joy this property has provided for all who have shared it. I have received countless compliments.

                      Why the Owner Chose Sandwich:
                      This home was purchased as a second home in 2001 and later became a full time owners residence. The home suffered a water leak which caused significant damage. As part of the repair process, the home underwent a complete renovation 2010-2011 comparable to a new construction build out. The resulting home is very recently completed and exceeds every expectation. The 2012 summer season is the very first time the home has been offered for a vacation rental.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The Springhill Beach area is an unspoiled barrier beach gem surrounded by Cape Cod Bay on one side and an expansive natural tidal inlet on the other. It is a unique natural location that affords views from every direction and provides guests with their own quiet private beach just steps away. The interior layout of the home takes full advantage of the gorgeous year round ocean and tidal marsh views while providing a wonderful open floor plan layout. The neutral pallet decor immediately invokes a sense of calm and relaxation. The interior design combines beautiful traditional finishes with modern high end amenities and contemporary fixtures throughout resulting in a home that maintains the desirable casual Cape Cod ambiance while providing guests with sophisticated modern amenities. The home provides the perfect setting for family and friends or a romantic couples getaway. Enjoy your private beach just steps away, entertain in the gourmet kitchen, relax on one of the many private deck areas, enjoy the sound of the waves, watch the sun set, or drive a short distance and enjoy all of the wonderful restaurants and entertainment that Cape Cod has to offer. The choice is yours. Once you arrive you will find that you will not want to leave!
