Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Enjoy a relaxing or activity-filled vacation in this lovely, light-filled, beachfront house in peaceful Truro on Cape Cod, where you will never know you are on the Cape in peak season. You can lounge in the hammock on the deck overlooking spectacular views of Cape Cod Bay and the entire sweep of the Cape, stroll down the association staircase to the private sandy Bay beach (generally calm water and great for kids). Rent a kayak or windsurfer, depending on the weather, or go beachcombing at low tide. Check out this video we made using a drone to get an idea of the setting of the house: https://youtu.be/rhLCicrSyFo

Drive five to ten minutes to the National Seashore beaches to try boogie boarding or surfing in the waves. There is wonderful road biking on beautiful back roads with few cars, or explore the fire roads through the woods on mountain bikes. Nearby bikepaths are another great option. Spend a day or evening exploring the galleries of Wellfleet, and check out the scene in Provincetown after your whale watch. Both towns have wonderful restaurants and movie theaters as well.

Other activities include fishing, star-gazing, birdwatching, walking, golf on the famous Highland Links course, etc. The Truro Central school has good playgrounds and basketball courts. There are public tennis courts in Wellfleet, about 20 minutes away. Very nearby shops include a fish store, deli, farmstand, gourmet mini-grocery store and bakery, home-made ice-cream shop, and liquor store. There is a mall and other shopping in Hyannis, about 40 minutes away. There are supermarkets in Orleans and Provincetown.

The house is well-equipped to accommodate two plus families, a group of friends, or a couple wanting a romantic getaway. There are waterviews from every room. Upstairs there is a Master Bedroom with private bath and deck overlooking the Bay. Downstairs are four other bedrooms that walk out onto a deck: two good-sized ones with twin beds which can be pushed together to form Kings, and two small ones which hold trundle and bunkbeds, respectively. There is a full bath and laundry downstairs as well.

The living area is upstairs to take advantage of the views. A large open (very well-stocked) kitchen/dining/living area opening onto a large covered deck with picnic table, hammock, and gas grill makes for easy family living. The breeze and ceiling fans make air-conditioning unnecessary. There is a half bath off the upstairs hallway. Downstairs an open sitting area outside the bedrooms provides an extra 'hang-out' space for the kids if they want to watch TV or play games. There is a private outdoor shower with beautiful views. A garage provides ample storage for bikes and other gear. The house is truly comfortable and beautiful. More photos available on request.

Perfect Sunsets!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week at this beautiful home on Cape Cod Bay! It is very close to our favorite beach, Corn Hill. We thoroughly enjoyed many of the areas eateries. Especially, Blackfish, Salty Market, Captain's Choice and Jam's. Our favorite things to do were visiting the MA Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary in Wellfleet, Truro Vineyards, and sit on the deck for the outstanding sunsets with beer and take-out from Captain's Choice. We can't wait to return!

really great house and location!

  • 5 of 5

My two sisters and our husbands and my niece stayed here for a week. The house worked great for us! The living and dining room and kitchen are all open, with picture windows and decks all around so that you are always looking out at the water. The deck has a boardwalk that goes out to an overlook of the beach where it is super nice to sit with coffee in the morning. Gorgeous sunsets every night with a view of the Provincetown Monument. The kitchen is very well stocked and there are plenty of boogey boards and chairs for the beach. Good games in the living room to keep kids occupied in the evenings and rainy weather. The house is situated on a high hill above the bay so that we always had a great breeze, even when it was hot. We mostly used the outdoor shower, which was awesome. The private bay beach below is beautiful and quiet and an easy walk from the house. The access is about a hundred yards up the street. We had rented bikes for the week and usually a few of us biked to Ballston Beach and back, which is a great ride. Owners were easy to work with. All in all, it made for a very memorable vacation for us! I would stay again without hesitation!

My 6 women cousins and I just returned from a wonderful week's reunion at this special house located on a bluff overlooking Cape Cod Bay. A short walk and steps away from a quiet beach on the bay, where you could stroll and see very few people. We enjoyed gorgeous sunsets while sitting on their promontory point deck. The house was very comfortable and clean, and the kitchen and dining area worked well for us, as we all enjoy cooking. Close to P-Town where most of us flew in, and we also rented bikes there. We visited many lovely beaches along the National Seashore, and ate lots of "lobster"! The owners were very accommodating and easy to work with. We hated to leave, and recommend this property for a memorable get-away vacation!

Consummate Cape Cod Experience

  • 5 of 5

The spectacular bay view from all corners of this house made us want to never leave. There was plenty of room for us - two couples in our 60s - with lots of extra beds for visiting friends and family. The house was comfortably stocked and included many helpful tips from the owners. Local hiking, biking, eating and trips to nearby Ptown and other Cape treasures kept us on the go. We loved it.

Can't wait for next summer

  • 5 of 5

The most persuasive recommendation I can give to prospective renters is that our family is returning in 2014 for our sixth time. Everything in the property description is absolutely accurate. We enthusiastically look forward to our annual visits.
