About Anthony

Hi. I was born and still live in Boston, and have been coming to the cape my whole life - finally my family was able to buy our dream property and welcome guests to the place we love.

Anthony purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Anthony chose Cape Cod

It took me over 2 years of driving every street on Cape Cod to find a perfect place that was near the center of town - but also on the ocean,... that's extremely rare! The Orleans town cove offers that unique combination !

What makes this cottage unique

We are not happy unless you are happy. We want you to have fun and come back again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David Lowe - Boston, MA

If you stay here, bring your kyak, or rent one from the Goose Hummock. We paddled right from the cottage out to Nauset Inlet, and spent hours watching the seals - there had to be a hundred of them - great fun, nice place, good people.

Wonderfully relaxing vacation site

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was immaculate, with an incredibly beautiful location on the bay. The interior was very comfortable, well maintained and nicely furnished. The exterior provided lovely views of the area, with the relaxing vista of the water viewed from the porch as well as the nearby swings. The site was also very convenient to nearby stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. We will certainly recommend the site and hope to return ourselves someday.

very nice trip

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The cottage was a little smaller than I had thought and if it were not for the beautiful weather and our being able to eat breakfast outside each morning, breakfast would have presented a problem. The kitchen is too small to eat in. But the mornings were beautiful and we had breakfast watching the small sail boats go by.

A couple of nights were chilly and we should have asked for directions on how to turn on the heat, our fault that we didn't.

The property is well maintained and spotlessly clean. We found everything there that we needed. The location is good for access to the upper Cape and of course easy access to the beaches. I would recommend this property

Owner's Response: Thanks JoAnn for the response, and also for the guest book and other gifts you left me! And Margie thanks you for your remarks about the cleanliness. She works hard to keep it that way. (Regarding the kitchen size, I just want readers to understand that you had four adults in your party, so they won't think it's too tiny). And sorry about the heat,... there's a red switch above the fridge but sometimes obscured by the lobster pot. My bad. Hope you come back and let me make that up to you. Thanks again. Tony.

Pictures are often worth a thousand words and the ones of these two cottages are great. But you must visit in order to appreciate how wonderful they are. Our family has stayed in both cottages, always in the off season. The views of Town Cove and the sunrises, birds, sailboats create a tranquil oasis. Once, we even saw a seal. And, in spite of the fact that busy Cranberry Highway was right at the end of the driveway, we never noticed traffic sounds. The location was perfect, seconds from the grocery, a package store and a couple of classic Cape Cod restaurants and within a brisk walk from the center of Orleans. Rock Harbor sunsets are a 5 minute drive away. Be sure to go to the Salt Pond Visitor's Center (3rd light in Eastham, after you hit the rotary). Great little museum, Cape history and geology movies, and out the back, one of the most gorgeous views on the Cape. Ask the ranger about the old Coast Guard Station, access to Coast Guard beach (a favorite) and the short drive to Nauset Light.

Both cottages are perfectly furnished and equipped for a true Cape Cod getaway. Lobster pots (or just buy lobsters steamed at Stop and Shop), blue and white dishware, wood wainscoting and wide board flooring, comfy furnishings, wonderful natural light from the many windows. The bathrooms are small, but immaculate. (The shower stalls [no tubs] may be too small for really large bathers.)

The owner, Tony, couldn't be more personable, helpful and accommodating. He truly made us feel welcome and at home. We highly recommend these perfect cottages

My families stay was in Sept.2010 and we've already made reservations for Sept.2011. Tony Deban was at the cottage to welcome us. He made us feel right at home answered any questions we had about the area and gave us great ideas for entertainment in the area. We stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage and couldn't have been more comfortable. Kayaking,fishing,clamming are steps away. Close to great restaurants and shopping but secluded enough to take in the beauty of the area. We all just had the best time and can't wait to return. Thank you Tony for making us feel so welcomed.

Clean and Comfortable Cottage w/great Location

  • 5 of 5

I went on vacation with my wife and 6 month old last week .. . we were extremely happy with the place.

Inside Cottage - as advertised - clean, simple and efficient. Weather was awesome so we never used the AC thats located in the living room . .whether it cools the whole cottage is unknown. Windows all open to get a great breeze. Bring an extension cord if you want to use a hair dryer in the bathroom .. . . no outlets. Also, if you like to cook, bring a sharp knife and an extra cutting board. Keep it simple, small efficiency kitchen. Bed was comfortable. Bedrooms are small, but who cares - you are on vacation. Main bedroom was big enough to put up a crib. Back Bedroom with 2 beds was used as baby staging for clothes and changing area etc. Would have been cramped with another person. .. but babies require lots of extra gear so go figure.

Outside Cottage - The wood deck was awesome, very large with table/umbrella for 6, Webber Kettle Charcoal Grill, and several additional chase lounges. Furniture too large and comfy for mobile beach use . . bring your own beach chairs. Never used the outside showers .. can't comment. View of the Bay is great. The cottage in front of you blocks some of your view, but its not intrusive. Lots of trees to the west so in the the afternoon the deck is shady. Deck is in good sound condition .. .you can walk safely with bare feet. . . no nails sticking up, no warped boards, or splinter hazards.

Location: You can't hear the traffic on 6A . . .busy street . . .even though you are steps away. Wedding took place at the Windmill adjacent to the property . . .pretty cool. Directly across the street is the best fish market I have ever been too!!! They sell fish, corn, ice and beer. They will steam your lobsters so don't bother cooking them at the cottage. Next to that is a fantastic family restaurant . .the Lobster Claw - Phantom Gourmet Great 8 approved. Also across the street is also a Packie - beer, wine and liquor - and a Fish and Chips Take out joint. It was very good. About a 7 minute walk away is a Stop and Shop. . . you always forget something. The coffee shop down the road - Jo-mama's - is a home run too. Several hardware shops are located within a miles drive. Check out the sunset a Rock Harbor Beach . . .sensational!!!

I will go back again and stay here.

3 incredible beaches - 5 or 10 minute ride
Car: recommended

We are conveniently located less than 1 minute off route 6 (mid cape highway) on the picturesque and dramatic saltwater Orleans town cove, and adjacent to a tranquil oceanfront park (Jonathan Young Windmill park). The property is private and quiet, yet within walking distance to fantastic shops, restaurants, Super Stop&Shop, Windmill Liquors, Nauset fish market, world-famous Birdwatchers General Store, etc. etc. This is really the best location on the Cape. You will love it! Three gorgeous beaches are minutes away, or you can swim in our beautiful cove (although there's almost no sand at the cove - so better off at the beach with little kids). Don't miss Chatham with all the seals and great-white sharks, and renowned Chatham Bars Inn (next town over on route 28),... or must-see Provincetown, so very interesting in many ways,... words can't describe it - just gotta go ! (a 25 mile scenic ride to the tip of the cape thru the National Seashore). Race Point area is some of the best land God ever created !

Also great attractions are Hyannis and Hyannisport, of Kennedy fame. There's too much to list really, but call me anytime with questions (617-817-7706).
