About the Property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This light, airy, kid-friendly, family home with the charm of a New England summer home is an easy, 4-minute walk to Old Silver Beach. With 4 bedrooms, this Cape-Cod-style, beach house sleeps 8 and is equipped with central A/C, linens & towels, cable HDTV, DVD player, high-speed-wireless Internet, modern kitchen, microwave, washer&dryer, dishwasher, disposal, and more. This beach rental has 2 bathrooms (with a tub in the master bathroom), but most prefer to bathe alfresco in the 'hot & cold' outdoor shower. The rear yard has swings for the children and a gas-grill and spacious deck for parents to relax nearby. This rent-by-owner house is set back from a quiet street and just a short walk from Old Silver Beach, which is great for children, with soft sand (no rocks), shallow tide pools to explore, toilets, showers, sailboat and paddle boat rentals, and a snack bar (but you can walk home for lunch).

Old Silver Beach Reviews By FROMMERS and FODOR'S: FROMMERS: 'Beaches most suitable for children include Old Silver Beach in Falmouth.... This is by far the most popular beach on the Upper Cape, which is why it was the first to raise its prices to $20 per day for day-trippers. On sunny summer days, cars start lining up to get into the parking lot by 9am. Why? It is the closest really good beach to the bridges. It has the widest sandy area and softest sand of the Upper Cape Beaches. It is on Buzzards Bay, so it is not too cold. And because there are no large sand bars nearby, you can get into deep water and swim fairly close to shore, instead of having to wade way out.' -- FODOR'S: 'Old Silver Beach is a long, beautiful crescent of soft white sand bordered by the Sea Crest Resort at one end. It's especially good for small children because a sandbar keeps it shallow at the southern end and creates tidal pools full of crabs and minnows. The beach has lifeguards, restrooms, showers, and a snack bar. There's a $20 fee for parking in summer.


Public & Private Beach Privileges: Our beach rental includes use of both the public and private sections of Old Silver Beach, and both are just a short stroll from this Falmouth home rental. The public beach is nearer to the snack bar and toilets, which is convenient for children and parents (or you can stroll home in 4 minutes). Beckoning just to the north, the private beach offers a more exclusive setting at 10-minute walk from the house. For a vacation rental adventure, bring your bicycles (or rent some from Corner Cycle, in Falmouth) and ride the easy-going (mostly flat and level) Shining Sea Bike Trail to Woods Hole for lunch, a visit to the 'Touch Tanks' at Woods Hole Science Aquarium (closed on Sundays, Mondays, and federal holidays), or a swim at Nobska Beach. Other summer rental activities near our vacation home at Old Silver Beach include golf, pilates, yoga, windsurfing, kayaking, sailing, whale-watching, hiking, and fishing. These are just a few of the endless summer possibilities at this charming beach house rental.

Old Silver Beach (OSB)

Car: Necessary

Our house truly is an easy 4-minute walk to Old Silver Beach. We have walked to the beach twice daily since our children were ages 5, 4, and 1.5 years old, and they still appreciate an occasional treat from the OSB Snack Bar. Everything you need is within 10-minutes drive, so once you arrive, just settle in and relax. Slip into the charm of Cape Cod with quick visits to small, nearby shoppes for local produce, fresh baked goods, and fresh fish. If you are adventurous, the house is near the Shining Sea Bike Path and close to Woods Hole and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Old Silver Beach is a fine base for exploring the rest of Cape Cod and just an hour drive to Boston. Consider day-trips to 'Plimoth Plantation' [sic] or to Boston's Museum of Science and Children's Museum. Old Silver Beach is so close to Boston, you can commute to work in an hour while your family enjoys an extended summer vacation.

Other Activities: Bicycle rentals. Association Tennis Court.

Year Purchased: 2006

Why the Owner Chose West Falmouth, Falmouth, MA, USA:
This house is in a quiet, private community and an easy walk to Old Silver Beach without being in the bustle of the main road. The lot is shady, with mature oak trees, so you can relax in a cool yard after the sun of the beach. Our three boys have grown up at this lovely house, where the peaceful community allows them to play outside, independently, with other children in the neighborhood.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
