About the property

House Rental - 2 bedrooms, sleeps 5

This gem sits quietly among the pines on the edge of Drummer Cove with a large wraparound deck on which to sit and watch the tide come and go. If you prefer a bit more shelter, there is a large screened-in porch. With two large picture windows, the same marvelous view is visible from the living room! Should the weather turn cool, light a fire in the fireplace or curl up with a book in the glassed-in Florida room. A short walk takes you to the bay for a swim or to launch your kayak. Down the road is the Fox Island Conservation Area hiking trail, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail is about a mile away. Wellfleet is noted for its large harbor and marina -which offers deep sea fishing & sailboat rentals - white ocean beaches and clear kettle ponds, as well as a large collection of art galleries and fine restaurants.

About Peter & Eleanor Santos

We are retired school teachers who have been loving our time in this neighborhood since childhood.

Peter & Eleanor Santos purchased this house in 1991

What makes this house unique

Although there are many activities to engage in nearby, we often come, settle in and never leave the neighborhood until it's time to go home! It is a very restful area with nearby access to kayak and swim in the bay

A Wonderful Spot, a Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home had everything our family was looking for--a great view and location, all the amenities, a large deck, plenty of room, big kitchen to prepare meals, etc. The location is also excellent. The hosts are very attentive and accommodating. It was well worth the 10-hour drive for us. A great Cape Cod vacation spot!

Pleasant Point Gem

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful, quiet, serene piece of paradise big enough for the whole family.! Bay breezes waft through the pine canopy and part of the house is always shaded! Eleanor is fantastic with helpful hints & tips. Numerous amenities and near to beaches, nature preserves, national seashore, marina, seafood markets, shops, restaurants, and general store. We didn't want to leave this one-of-a-kind rental, truly outstanding, and worth treating yourself to for a fantastic Cape Cod Escape!!! JAG, Watseka, IL

Peace, Quiet & Beauty

  • 5 of 5

If you want to "get away from it all" without traveling to Tahiti, this is your place. The location couldn't be more beautiful, and quiet, except for the local birds and occasional rustlings of wind through the trees. Although the Wellfleet Bay Nature Preserve is nearby, and worth a visit, you will feel as if you've already been there if you stay at this house. On the other hand, you are close to the bay and ocean beaches, and a 20-30 minute drive from all the action in Provincetown. I highly recommend this house.

Serene setting on the cove

  • 5 of 5

In this busy, hectic world, this charming home is a welcome haven. The moment we stepped out onto the spacious back deck overlooking the cove, we immediately relaxed and felt truly on vacation. We ate all of our meals outdoors – breakfast and candlelit dinners on the wonderful screened porch and lunch at the picnic table on the deck. Throughout the day, we enjoyed the wildlife on the cove with its ever changing tide – great blue herons, egrets, and a multitude of birds. We kayaked nearly every day, both in Drummer’s Cove and in Wellfleet Harbor. Both bay and National Seashore beaches are very close by, as is Wellfleet center with its many art galleries and restaurants. A 5-minute drive to PB Boulangerie Bistro for just baked croissants became a morning ritual.

The owners were the quintessential hosts -- extremely accommodating and responsive to our every need and question. The home is very clean, organized, and well maintained. We wouldn’t hesitate to spend another vacation here.

A wonderful second visit

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in this lovely cottage for two weeks in 2012 and we were delighted to return for another two wonderful weeks in 2014. It feels like a home away from home for us. Everything was as fantastic as last time. We can't recommend this property enough for it's tranquility and old cottage charm. The owners are so very nice and helpful. We'll be back again, we hope!

This home on Drummer Cove, nestled in a pine grove, is in an area of South Wellfleet called Pleasant Point in Wellfleet Harbor. The Audubon Wildlife Sanctuary is nearby, and there are many species of birds present. The National Seashore, with its many trails, magnificent ocean beaches and pristine freshwater ponds are only minutes away. This quiet, private location, though handy to all recreational activities, including hiking, surfing, biking, swimming, or boating, is perfect for peaceful relaxation. A short drive will take you to the charming fishing village of Wellfleet with its many galleries, or Provincetown which is filled with 'Kodak moments.'
