More about the home and the surroundings
The home is nestled next to 150 acres of wildlife sanctuary and has beautifully landscaped grounds. At the foot of the driveway is an 18 hole golf course and a sports court for basketball, volleyball, horseshoes and badminton. Some of the best windsurfing in the world is outside your front deck. Adirondack chairs are positioned around the grounds and on the beach for your comfort. The home has over 200' of private beach and the water is both safe and warm. Even during the winter months, there have been many times that all of us have been enjoying the sun on the oceanside deck.

There are two kitchens with three refrigerators, 2 dishwashers and two ovens in total. The home offers an 80 foot outdoor deck overlooking the ocean to enjoy all of the incredible views and sunrises and sunsets. To experience Southwest at Little Harbor is to experience the most fabulous, serene vacation on the entire Cape. Baseball enthusiasts can take in Wareham Gatemen games of the Cape Cod League during the summer, seeing young talent as they progress to the major leagues. Last but not least, for history buffs, the famous whaling city of New Bedford and Plimouth Plantation are each approximately twenty minutes away. How wonderful for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other holiday.

Where can you find a home like this all year round. And you don't have to ever sit in traffic.

Our home is also perfect for small, intimate weddings of 70 people or less. Over the years, our couples have absolutely loved getting married at our home.
