Thinking of a nice cozy vacation in Cape Cod?

This house provides a convenient location and a relaxing atmosphere for you. The house is in a desirable area of of Osterville south of Main Street (towards the ocean). There is a nice field (one house away) where you can exercise your pet in the morning - and there are free public tennis courts next to this field.

The house has a functional kitchen and a dining room with a dining table that seats 6. The rest of the folks can eat in the sun room or at the picnic table outside.

The house can comfortably accommodate 10 people.

There are 4 bedrooms in the house. One bedroom upstairs has two twin size beds, while the other has 4 twin size beds. The upstairs bedrooms each have an air conditioner. The master bedroom downstairs has a queen size bed with a private bath. The other bedroom also has a queen size bed - and there is a bathroom in the hallway. Each of the downstairs bed room has a window air conditioner.

The living room has an HDTV with a Blu-ray DVD player from which you can stream movies and shows from Netflix (Note Not Cable TV). Wi-Fi Internet access is included so that you can stay connected if you so desire.

The medium-sized back yard is fenced in by a high wooden fence. There is a deck with 2 Adirondack chairs. And there is a charcoal grill on the lawn.

A Washer and Dryer is available on the first floor for your convenience as necessary. A limited number of towels, beach towels and linens will be provided as part of the cleaning fee.

Main Street in Osterville is only about a 3 minute walk away (mostly on sidewalks) - where you'll find restaurants and shops. You'll also find a small park as well as a market/grocery store that is remarkably well stocked.

Hyannis town center is also only 6 miles away where you can find, bars restaurants and shops. There, you’ll also find the Kennedy Museum and an amusement center and the docks.

You could start your day off with a short (3 to 4 minute), refreshing walk to Cumberland Farms ($1 coffee) or Dunkin Donuts to get some coffee and breakfast. Then walk back and get ready for a day at the beaches.

You'll have the use of a free beach pass (caution: please do not lose this beach pass) to access all of the Barnstable Beaches. There are several beaches in the area. Dowses Beach is the closest and is a "residents only" beach (but you can get in with the beach pass). Centerville beach is a larger beach which allows the public to enter with a fee (you can get in free with the beach pass). There is also Kalmus Beach (which is popular with Wind Surfers). You can also go check out Sandy Neck Beach where you can find a lighthouse and do a little bird-watching. There are several other beaches in the area, including Keyes Beach, Veterans Beach, Covell Beach and more.

For families with little kids, there are beach toys in the shed out back. After your day at the beaches, you can enjoy a nice rinse in the outdoor shower in the backyard!

You could spend a day exploring the shops in Osterville and visiting the library - which allows well-behaved, leashed dogs inside. Then come home and have a bar-b-que in the back yard.

The experience of relaxing on the back deck or sun room with a glass of wine or a cocktail, while absorbing the wonderful atmosphere of Cape Cod is a great way to top off each day of your vacation!

For a change of pace, a day could be spent by taking a ferry to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard (from the Hyannis docks). Or hop on a deep sea fishing party boat to catch whatever fish is in season. Whale watching is another option for those wanting to get up close and personal with the sea life.

For shoppers and browsers, the Artists’ Shanties at the Hyannis docks offer a view of the local work by some of New England’s crafters and artists. And if, mall shopping is your thing, Cape Cod Mall is only 15-20 minutes away by car.

There are a number golf courses in the area – including a public course at the Hyannis Golf course and the Twin Brooks Golf course.

No matter what your interests, Cape Cod probably has something to offer you and this house offers a nice, cozy staging area from which you can explore this wonderful New England Region!

Close to everything and great for a group.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 days and loved it. It was easy to walk into town or to the beach and the house was perfect for a group of 8. Will stay again.

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with this place and would stay there again. Location was perfect - nice quiet street, easy walking distance from town. The wifi and AC both worked well. We only rent places that include a fenced yard for our dog - this place has a pretty good sized yard with a nice hammock that we used a lot. We ate out on the deck most nights. Note that for the upstairs bedrooms, there is no bathroom up there and folks need to climb down some steep steps to reach the bathroom (this was not a problem for us since we have older kids, but could have been an issue when they were younger.) The screened in porch made a very nice place to hang out and not be bothered by bugs.

Loved the house,

  • 4 of 5

Spent a week with 9 people (4 parents and 5 children from 13-22 years old) Quiet neighborhood and easy walk to town. We recommend "Gone Chocolate" for a great ice cream place in town. We had issues with the front door lock, the owners immediately got back to us to help resolve the problem (using the VRBO app made it easy). They always responded quickly to any email we sent. The house was very clean and we loved hanging out in the sun room and eating on the deck. The only issues we found, after 2-3 showers there was no more hot water, and the kitchen was a bit small for our group, but neither of these issues would would stop us from renting here again.

Excellent rental property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with my family (4 of us), my sister's family (4) and my parents (2) and this was the perfect sized house for us and had plenty of room! It's on a quiet street with lots of of other beautiful homes. We had never stayed in Osterville before and it was such a beautiful part of the Cape! The downtown area has many shops and restaurants and you can walk there from the house. We also walked/ran to Dowses beach a couple of times b/c that was only 1.2 miles away. We tried not to walk it with the kids b/c you lose sidewalks after a while and there's not a good shoulder on the road that Dowses is on. We loved that beach though and used the beach pass at the house to get in. It's residents only, so we just had to make 2 trips so we could all go. When we went to Craigsville Beach we could take 2 vehicles and we also loved that beach. The house itself was nice too! The kitchen area goes right to a deck and also to a sunroom. So most nights we ate at the large picnic table out back on the deck. There's a large fenced in back yard. We enjoyed our morning coffee in the sunroom while the kids ate breakfast at the kitchen table. The kids were happy that the living room had a Wii so at the end of a long beach day, they could enjoy that. There is one bedroom upstairs with 4 twin beds which is where all the kids stayed. The 2nd bedroom upstairs has 2 twin beds and that's where my husband and I stayed b/c he was gone for part of the week for business. The downstairs has 2 bedrooms, each with a queen sized bed. As other reviewers mentioned, the kitchen is a bit outdated, but it's functional and we didn't mind at all. This is definitely a nice property to rent!
