Before you decide on renting a cottage...check out the location...Falmouth is big and most areas are no where near the ocean and require driving to get to anywhere as well as being in a remote or undesirable area for VACATIONING. Maravista is highly desirable and if you look on the map my cottage is close to everything...esp. the ocean. This is an adorable, cottage overlooking Great Bay from the most comfortable porch in town....Watch the boats, jet skiers, windsurfers, & canoers while you have your morning coffee...From my yard to Maravista beach is a 5 mins walk. A great little neighborhood and under two mins to the Town Landing to launch your boat. Great Bay is a few houses down and a truly wonderful spot for children to play and swim...Steps away from the back roads where runners, walkers, bikers take a truly scenic route parallel to the bay....a WONDERFUL experience.....benches along the way just to stop and enjoy the bay/activities going on...Close to the Island Queen at Falmouth Harbor where you can take a 35 min boat ride over ...just for lunch or dinner if you want...Falmouth Center has great shops and restaurants for your enjoyment as well as periodic street fairs, car shows, art/crafts fairs, the strawberry festival, Lobster-on-the-Lawn every Monday night at St. Barnabas' Churchgrounds...Queens Buyway ( a cool and funky area)..Visit America the Beautiful's author, Katherine Lee Bate's childhood home.Take the trolley for the fun of it to Woods Hole...or just drive the 10 mins....Buses to Hyannis if you do not want to drive....Lots and lots to do...and if you have not been to Falmouth...you are in for a VERY relaxing getaway...

About the owner: This cottage was built in the 20s I believe and was where I spent my summers growing up..and where my children have as well....
Why the Owner Chose Falmouth: If you are looking for the simple, minimalistic life for a while ...this is it...All the real amenities are outside...beach, bike paths, ferry, etc. Please note there is no air conditioning but ceiling fans in all rooms (except kitchen).. as well as stand fans...but the cool ocean and bay breezes cannot be beat!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: This cottage is like going back in time...original and just the basics....not much done to it except a stove, hot water heater, shower replacement.
