About the property

3 Bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 1 three-quarter bathroom, sleeps 7

Our well appointed home, the Godwit, is located on an acre+ lot of waterfront land with access to Pochet Cove and Little Pleasant Bay, minutes from Nauset Beach. The house is all on one level, surrounded by beautiful gardens, a water view, located in a private neighborhood and yet minutes from first-rate restaurants, stores and the Academy of Performing Arts. The back deck is like an outside living room. Read a favorite book, watch herons and egrets from the deck, have meandering conversations with family and friends. The property offers privacy and a sense of peace. Linens, bath towels, and beach towels all included. There is also no added on cleaning fee. Accommodations for 6-7 people.

Lovely house in beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well maintained house in lovely flower-filled setting with a great ocean view and a living room and terrace that take advantage of that view. The host made the week's rental easy. She was attentive but not intrusive in any way. All the necessary bedding, towels etc were just as they should be upon arrrival. A perfect pick for a family or even a couple or friends.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this beautiful cape home. The deck is huge with fantastic views. Whenever we were not at the beach, riding bikes or sightseeing (I love Truro Vineyards.), this is where our family would be found. The neighborhood was quiet and a great place for my running energizer bunny husband to do his miles. The house itself was spacious and clean with lots of amenities. The best was the mattress in the master bedroom, the most comfortable we have found in a rental house. Can't say enough about the beautiful gardens and landscaping. We are looking forward to returning next summer.

A Beautiful and Comfortable Rental Property

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. We were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by beautiful bouquets of fresh-cut flowers in the house. The grounds are spectacular, filled with large, colorful and well-maintained plantings. The view of the bay from the back deck was a constant reminder of how close we were to the ocean and the natural environment of Cape Cod. The house was clean, well furnished and well stocked with household supplies. We would highly recommend this property for rental by anyone wishing to enjoy their Cape Cod vacation.

Charming, neat property with gardens to die for

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with the house and our stay. The house and the location were lovely. Everything was clean, neat and functional. Everything about the house was as stated. It is just the right size for 5 - 7 people. We enjoyed the ability to launch kayaks out of the back yard at high tide. We liked browsing the large bookshelves and our musicians had fun playing the baby grand piano in the living room.

And the gardens are works of art.

A wonderful Cape Cod stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property last week and had a fabulous time. We have rented a different summer home in Orleans for many years, but that property went off the rental market, so we have been looking for a new place to rent. We tried this house this year, and we were really impressed. The location is terrific--on the back side of the Nauset Beach dunes, on an inlet which is part of Little Pleasant Bay. The views of the water are gorgeous, from the deck and the living room. The neighborhood is quiet, with beautiful homes. The house was comfortable, clean, and well-stocked. The owners are very kind and very helpful, and they have planted amazing flowers and shrubs all around the property. It's a great place.
