  • Exceptional Vacation Home! better than described

    "We enjoyed a 4 generation family vacation - house is spacious, well appointed and equipped. Owned by a gracious family who are the primary users of the house. Family pictures, decoration and amenities make the house feel like home. One of the owners lives close by and is most attentive to any needs. Beach is rounded rocks at high tide, some sand a lower tides. Access via a sloped path and stairs. With swim shoes, swimming is fine. House was clean and ready for us when we arrived. We would recommend this home to any large family. Our family was unanimous in wanting to come back next year."

  • Great place to relax!

    "The townhouse was a terrific place to relax with family. Short walk to the beach, good parking, plenty of room inside. Steve was very accommodating for getting our rooms set up to suit everyone staying. The balcony on the second floor is a perfect place to be in evening and the kids had fun playing volley ball in the back yard. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!"

  • Relaxing Rental

    "The house looks exactly as it does on-line and is in a nice location. All-in-all in very good condition. They do provide fans (although you probably won't need them - nice ocean breeze comes through the home) but unfortunately the blades as well as covers looked like they have never been dusted and/or cleaned - very dirty. The rest of the house is clean. Nice location with beautiful views. The last day we were there, there was a lot of seaweed that washed up on shore making it impossible to get to the water but, that is no ones fault but Mother Nature :-) Very rocky beach but still nice - quiet and clean. The bed in the loft is not the best - it's a very thin mattress sitting on the floor, I recommend bringing an air mattress if you want to use the loft. Parking can be tricky but doable. Great area for walking. You have got to try "Arthur & Pat's Restaurant" in town - TO DIE FOR Coconut Cake! Also The ABSOLUTE BEST LOBSTER ROLL ANYWHERE IN THE U.S. (no kidding) can be found at "Green Harbor Lobster Pound" - I promise you, you will NOT regret it! I would definitely stay at this property again!"

  • Perfect for Family Reunions!

    "We stayed here for a week with two girls 6 and 9...they were never bored! We thoroughly enjoyed the beach, swimming and fishing! Family and friends were visiting all week and everyone was happy with the location we already asked to rent again!"

Onset Travel Tips

Gorgeous Views and Historical Ambience Await You at Onset Vacation Rentals

If you're looking for a vacation destination with as much to offer in the way of historical character and lore as it has in beaches and spectacular views, the village of Onset on the northwest corner of Cape Cod just might be the place for you. It's packed with beautiful Victorian architecture that you can observe by simply strolling down Onset Avenue, a street lined with 19th-century hotels. Onset vacation rentals also offer breathtaking ocean views, but you don't have to stay right on the beach to appreciate them. You can stay anywhere in Onset and literally be within a minute's walk to the shore.

Finding Your Way Around Onset Is Easy as 1-2-3

Have you ever gone on vacation and found yourself spending more time trying to navigate the foreign streets than actually enjoying your destinations? That's never a problem when renting Onset beach homes. To begin with, the village is so small that most landmarks and attractions are within a short walk from just about any point in town. But on top of that is the unique, simple and logical layout of the town's roads. Streets run east and west while avenues run north and south, and boulevards circumvent the village. So if you've planned on taking a trip to Porter's Thermometer Museum, you can be rest assured that you'll spend your time enjoying the place rather than hunting for its location.

Experience the Village Like a Local in Onset Vacation Rentals

When it comes to Cape Cod lodging, Onset rentals are the way to go. They're much more cozy and welcoming than hotel rooms, and you won't have to worry about running into hassles at check-in or crowds in lobbies and common areas. By renting an Onset beach house, you can truly find your home away from home.
