About David Buxton

We are a semi retired couple who live year round in Berkshire County Ma. David is in real estate and Sherri is a professional singer, voice teacher and retired elementary specialist. Originally from Chicago and Newburyport, Ma. we love water which is why we fell in love with this house. There are so many beautiful ocean spots within walking distance.

David Buxton purchased this house in 2004

Why David Buxton chose Sandwich

We had been vacationing in Sandwich for years; always with the dream of owning property there. After looking for the right house for 3 years, we fell madly in love with this property. It was love at first sight so we bought it for our 30th anniversary.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic location. We love being near the Marina. There are so many different beaches and spots to go to get unique views of the water. The ocean has so much personality and changes daily. Shopping and great restaurants are within walking distance yet the house is nestled up a hill and private.

Our home away from home in Sandwich

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this lovely, cozy house 3x now and truly feel like it is our "home away from home" when we visit the Cape. We especially like the sunroom and back porch for relaxing and have happily cooked on the BBQ or in the kitchen with family and friends.

The property is clean and well kept and the owners have always made sure when we arrive that we were satisfied with how we found the propoerty and everything was in good working order.

The house is on a quiet side street and is just a short walk to the beach as well as to a few restaurants. The supermarket and other stores are just a few minutes drive away. It is a great base for exploring the Cape and surrounding areas.

A fantastic house in Cape Cod.

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our week in Sandwich. The house was very clean and well-maintained, with a beautiful garden. The location is great for touring around Cape Cod. There are lots of lovely restaurants nearby. We were given lots of valuable information and recommendations by the owners prior to our arrival. I will have no hesitation in recommending this property to others.

Erholsame Woche in Neuengland

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben mit unserer 15 jährigen Tochter eine Woche in Sandwich verbracht und uns super gut erholt. Wir sind jedoch zuvor immer in Florida oder Kalifornien gewesen, und sind daher mehr Rummel gewohnt. Wir danken Sherri und David für Ihre Gastfreundschaft und Ihre offene und zuvorkommende Art. Da haben wir schon andere Erfahrungen gemacht. Vielen lieben Dank.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. We are so fortunate to have had wonderful tenants from the US and from Europe such as yourselves. Cape Cod is quieter and more relaxing than the cities you've been to, but we love that it's just an hour to get to the city of Boston.

Everything you need is within walking distance or close by. Walk or Bike on the scenic Cape Cod Canal Bike Path and to wonderful water front restaurants and shopping.

Make this a truly memorable vacation!Watch the boats come in; a block walk to Marina and Cape Cod Canal, 4/10 mile to Horizon's Beach, less than a mile to magnificent Town Neck Beach.

Comments from renters: ''What a beautiful home'', ''It's so convenient to everything.'' ''We'll be back next year.'' ''Sandwich is my new favorite town on the Cape.'' ''You're house is in pristine condition'' ''Much more beautiful than the photos''
