About the property

4 BR, 1 BA, sleeps 8

Are you looking for the perfect spot for your family's summer vacation? This charming home is just what you're looking for! Walk 50 sandy steps to Nantucket Sound. Private beach has a quiet, calm surf so that even the smallest beach goer is able to wade in the water or sit at the water's edge. Close proximity to the beach is a real plus for families with small children who need snacks, naps, or just a break from the sun. No need to pack beach chairs, umbrellas, or toys - this home has it all. There are baby products available. Relax, read, watch TV, or play in the spacious family room, complete with comfortable furniture, games and books for fun family time. This home has versatile bed combinations and even a 'pack n play for your baby or toddler. Four bedrooms are upstairs. Two rooms have double beds, one room has twin beds, and one room has 2 twin beds and bunk beds (great for the kids). There is plenty of bedroom space for older kids to have their own space.

Fun in the sun: This charming home, located on a quiet family street, has access to a private beach. Just 50 sandy steps from the front door, this great beach is perfect for your family. The water is calm so that children can splash and play, float on rafts, or snorkel. There are lots of beach chairs, beach toys and boogie boards at the house so feel free to enjoy! After a fun day at the beach, make a great dinner on the gas grill and go back to the beach for some kite flying or a nice sunset walk. In addition to the private beach, the West Dennis public beach is walking distance and is located just around the corner and has a nice kite flying area, snack bar and swing sets. The Lighthouse Inn which is also around the corner has boating and jet skiing activities. All this just a 5 minute walk away!!

Quiet neighborhood: This home is a new rental property. It has been lovingly cared for and maintained by the same family for almost 40 years. The home is one of only 5 on this quiet street with the beach located at the end of the road. It's an ideal location for families with children since the road is quiet with only cars from the other 3 homes passing the house.

About Cheryl Dowd

My husband and I purchased the home from his family in 2006. He has been coming to this location since childhood. Our children have enjoyed many summers here in this home. We use the home ourselves many weeks of the summer, and ensure that it is in the same condition for families renting as it is for us.

Lovely home, great location!!

  • 5 of 5

Well kept home with plenty of room for everyone. Great location and beach for kids. Cheryl, the owner, was available throughout our stay.

Outdoor shower was a plus. And the kids loved playing games on the front lawn after dinner or when it was too hot down at the beach.

We've been coming to the Cape since 2000 and this is, by far, the best place we've stayed at.

So good, we've already booked for next year!!!

Thanks for sharing your home with us Cheryl!!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The house was perfect, and had more amenities than we expected. We traveled with our 2 young children. The location was great and we loved the beach.

Car: recommended

This West Dennis home is in a great location. Short ride to many wonderful family restaurants and activities. After a full day at the lovely private beach, the kids will love the bumper boats, mini golf, trampolines and arcades that are near by. Browse the wonderful shops, filled with Cape Cod charm. Take a short drive to catch the ferry to Monomy Island or Martha's Vienyard. Bring your bikes and take a nice family ride on the nearby bike path (a 5 minute car ride away). Provincetown is a scenic 1/2 hour ride away and will provide a fun filled day of site seeing or take a tour of the dunes.!
