About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

Classic cape cod home in a safe, quiet family neighborhood--10 minute walk down a private neighborhood path over the sand dunes to Hardings Beach. Home has been completely remodeled with granite countertops, all new appliances, Anderson windows, wide pine floors, and all new furnishings. Lots of living space in the living/dining areas and on the deck! Gorgeous updated kitchen with all stainless appliances. Central air conditioning. High speed internet and WIFI helps you stay connected as well. Beautiful seashell driveway with seashell paths leading to the outdoor shower, hammock and deck overlooking the grassy backyard which is big enough for ball-playing or bean-bag toss, etc. Parents will appreciate the peaceful, quiet and safe neighborhood. Walk past nine houses to arrive at the private neighborhood path over the sand dunes to Hardings Beach. You can also walk to Barn Hill Landing where you can watch lobster boats, or rent kayaks and paddleboards on the scenic ocearn harbor of Oyster Pond, which leads to Chatham Village. Bright, sunny rooms make this the perfect beach retreat!

Sleeps 8~~One King, One Queen, Twin Bunks, Trundle Day Bed, and Double Pull out sofa.

While renting this property, you can walk to the beach without being on a busy road. Beach is down a private neighborhood path, 1/5th of a mile away. Hardings beach has a lifeguard during the summer months, and is safe for young children. There are few waves at this beach and the water is relatively warm because it is protected by the Nantucket Sound. Kids will have fun catching sand crabs, following the sand dune paths and building sand castles. You do not have the extreme low tides and high tides you can experience on the Bay side of Cape Cod. You can swim, fly a kite, or walk on the beach for a mile to Oyster River or to Stage Harbor Lighthouse. This beach is surrounded by Cape Cod sand dunes and is beautiful and peaceful.

Guestbook comments from the manager

I wanted to take a quick minute and thank you again for permitting our family the opportunity to stay in your lovely home. The week was great, as well as visiting various parts of the Cape, we also took the opportunity to visit the Vineyard, Chappaquiddick and Nantucket. Even with a little rain and snow it was a great week, could not have been possible without the ability to stay in such a nice home in such a great part of the Cape.

What a perfect location. We loved being able to walk to the beach or take a short drive to everything else. Afternoon on the deck was private and serene. Beds were very comfortable. You won't be disappointed here!

Exactly what the Cape should be

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a perfect little vacation in this idyllic Chatham home. It is exactly as described, peaceful and quite in a beautiful neighborhood. Walk to the beach in less then 10 minutes and a quick drive to downtown Chatham for shopping or dinner. The house was well equipped, everything was clean and fresh and well maintained.

We loved it!

Very nice home in a very nice neighborhood. Close to most Cape Cod destinations.

  • 5 of 5

The home was exactly as described. The property was very clean with no issues at arrival. The owner quickly responded to any concerns or questions. I would definitely recommend this property to someone looking for a lovely home and great location on the cape. A local beach was within walking distance and the national seashore beaches were 30 minutes away. Shopping and great dining spots are minutes away.

Quintessential Cape Cod house

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is very spacious and what you would think a Cape Cod house would be. We had everything we needed (we even cooked dinner there on the grill one night) at the house. The walk to beautiful Hardings Beach is a nice stroll through the quiet and peaceful neighborhood.

Our only request (and I don't think that it's possible or the owners would have it) would be a fire pit of some sort. The yard is perfect for one, but they probably aren't allowed.

We would definitely stay here again. It was a great "home" base for us during our vacation.

This is a great rental property in a great, sought-after neighborhood location! About a 5 minute walk to a beautiful family beach down a private neighborhood path. Walk as far as you want on the quiet, serene beach. You can walk on the beach or on the sand dune path for a mile to Stage Harbor Lighthouse. The property is about 1/5 of a mile from Hardings Beach, and less than 2 miles to Chatham's charming downtown. After a day at the beach, enjoy a dinner in one of Chatham's finest restaurants or relax on the deck overlooking the large back yard.


This home was completely remodeled with a new kitchen (granite countertops, stainless steel appliances), new bathrooms, new paint, newly finished wide pine floors, etc! This bright, sunny home has all new furnishings and is close to all that Chatham has to offer! Walk to the safe, family-friendly Hardings beach, to Barn Hill Harbor, enjoy bike trails, scenic drives, seals in the harbor, upscale shopping, Chatham Lighthouse, a quaint downtown, etc
