About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

A very unique haven situated on what was a private family compound with private beach on Cape Cod Bay. The beach is less than 700 feet away via a beautiful sandy path which passes a cranberry bog along the way. The rambling, airy & bright 3000 sq. ft. home has been renovated over the past several years. The entire main floor has walnut hardwood flooring with an open floor plan. The new kitchen has honed granite counters with a large cherry wood topped island with stools. The new spacious screened porch is ideal for outdoor living, day or night. It is adjacent to the dining room as is the adjoining multi-level deck. It places you in a secluded tree shrouded area ideal for bird-watching or just sun, salt air and beach sounds.

The large living room with TV, DVD player & stereo also has a fireplace and a wooded view from the large bay window. The newly refurbished master bedroom with queen size bed has its own new fully renovated full bath. The 2nd & 3rd bedrooms each have (2) twin beds and share another brand new full bath. The 4th bedroom with 1 full and 1 twin bed and has its own 1/2 bath.

Rare find - close to beach & bike trail.

Perfect Beach home

  • 4 of 5

Perfect beach rental for a family. We stay in the same neighborhood every year and this was the best location so far. The house was clean, well equipped and the owner was extremely responsive. Very short walk to the beach makes it convenient to walk back to the house for lunch or to use the bathroom.

Great vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This house is awesome! the living area open to the kitchen is perfect for family gatherings and the screeened in porch and big back deck make for tons of space. You are a short walk to a sandy picturesque dune to a beautiful pretty much private beach. We also loved the area with grocery store, restaurants, and tons to do very close. Ken the owner was thorough and great to work with as well. Definitely recommend

Beach vacation house

  • 4 of 5

The house has a great location. It is walkable to a private beach which is next to Skaket, one of our favorite beaches. The kitchen is well equipped, and the screened in porch is terrific. The downstairs bedroom is in need of an update, but the family/living room area is very comfortable. The owners are very responsive and pleasant to work with. Highly recommend for a family beach vacation.

Back home

  • 5 of 5

We used this house for a reunion with family near where we used to live in Orleans. It is a very comfortable house! We particularly enjoyed the screen room - ate most of our dinners out there, comfortably with 7 people, easily fitting more guests for dinner some evenings, and entertained old friends for afternoon visits.

The kitchen is pretty well set up for cooking, utensil-wise, and is a good space for more than one person working. The center island was a good place for people to sit and enjoy hors-douvres while meals were prepared and the open living/dining/kitchen area was also a great space for all of us to be without feeling cramped.

The walk to the bay is pleasant and easy. The peaceful location of this house and setting on the lot gives a very secluded feel, but is only about a mile from the center of town. Our only criticism would be the lack of a front walk. Older folks may have trouble with the slightly uneven footing.

Overall, an excellent place to stay for our time in Orleans!

We had a great stay in comfort, and will try to get this house again for our next get together!

Comfortable house in great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in a secluded area with a quick walk to the beach. The house is beautifully maintained with a convenient outside porch, comfortable living room and bedrooms and nice kitchen. Orleans is a great location on Cape Cod and this house made our vacation perfect. Owners very helpful.

A Wonderful House!

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house in a wonderful location! The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. The house offers enough space for a group--a large living room, spacious screened porch and outdoor deck, plus open kitchen and dining areas. It's all very clean and appealing, and the recent remodeling of kitchen, bedroom, bathrooms, and porch really provide beautiful space for a vacation! The location is secluded enough to offer quiet and privacy but near beach, shopping, and restaurants--a perfect combination!

The walk to the beach is easy and pretty, and the beach itself is lovely. Cape Cod Bay offers low tides that invite lots of walking and high tides perfect for swimming. And the sunsets are amazing!

The owner is responsive and helpful. This is an ideal spot for a memorable vacation!
