Space 1,567 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3.5 bedrooms, 2 baths , sleeps 9

This renovated Cape style home is just a block from the lovely Point Independence Beach, a quiet sandy beach. Families love Point Independence because the water is calm and quiet, perfect for children to swim and play in.

When you're not at the beach, there's plenty else to do. You're just a short walk to Onset Village with weekly summer band shell movies and music. You can also walk to golfing, fishing, kayaking, boating, and great restaurants. Or, you can just relax on the porch and enjoy the salty breezes coming up from the bay.

During the fall and spring seasons, Onset makes a perfect weekend getaway spot. Just an hour from downtown Boston, you can get out of work and be walking on the beach before dinner.

The cottage has a wide open layout with two floors - each floor has two bedrooms and a bathroom, making it a perfect rental for two families.

Spacious, clean and full of character!

  • 5 of 5

The house is just what we were looking for, clean, spacious and well equipped with everything you could possibly want!

Onset itself is lovely with the right number of places to eat and drink so that you did not have to drive in the evening. It’s close enough to the Cape without being in the midst of the weekend traffic chaos. The beach is close to the house and is quiet and clean.

The music events were brilliant and we loved the community feel of the town!

A wonderful holiday in a lovely house.

great spot

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was great. The pictures do not do it justice. The living room has updated sofas which are very comfortable, there is a good size dining room for meals and a large kitchen. The beds were comfortable and worked well for a parent and her adult children and spouses. Great for togetherness without having to give up all privacy. Loved having two bathrooms and a washer and dryer. Almost everything we could possibly want was there including an iron.

The beach is incredibly close.

The owner was very accommodating and left us great instructions for everything we needed.

Clean and charming!

I have been going to cape cod every summer for years. This year we chose this cottage on onset beach to try something new. We absolutely loved this house. The cottage was so clean and had plenty of room for our family. We had three kids and threes adults. But also had more family come to visit and still plenty of room. The porch was awesome to sit on and relax every day. The pantry was well stocked. And the kitchen had plenty of dishes and utensils for all our needs. Again the house was so clean and comfortable. And the beach was a block away! On top of that all the neighbors were so nice. The town even had a free Woodstock cover concert while we were there. It was awesome. Rent this house!!
