About David G Drake
Even though our lives have taken us off Cape we get back as often as we can. I love working on the house. I designed the house from the foundation up and I built most everything you see myself or with the help of some very talented local friends and craftsmen. The bookshelves, decks and built-ins are all by hand. Relaxing to me is adding something hand made to the house while my family reads and relaxes or plays on the deck.
David G Drake purchased this House in 2008
Why David G Drake chose Centerville
I grew up here on Cape Cod and building this home was a twelve year project. But we are willing to bet you'll agree, it was well worth the effort! The waters of Nantucket Sound and Craigville Beach have always had magical healing powers for me and my family. The smell of the salt air and hearing the sound of the waves at the beach as you drop off to sleep... Well it doesn't get much better than that!
What makes this House unique
Peace and quiet but close to everything! Get outside and get into nature! Or just sink back and relax in a soft chair on one of the decks with your morning coffee and watch the antics of geese, ducks, swans and check up on our Osprey family (Brad and Loretta) as they raise their family throughout the spring and summer! The show never stops on the Centerville River!

Great House in Unforgettable Spot
Our biggest compliment is that we will rent again. And we will. We love this house for its warmth, its ease, its views, its location. Quick walk to the beach. Nice walk to ice cream. Patios are a dream. We are 12, 4 families, kids of all ages, and we had everything we needed. David is friendly and accessible. It's a great house, everything as described!
Love this house!
This was our second year vacationing at this beautiful home. It is the perfect combination of beach casual and Cape Cod chic. Easy access to beautiful Craigville Beach, walking distance to Four Seas Ice Cream (a must do evening activity) and close to great shopping in Osterville. We highly recommend! 💕�
Thanks for those kind words! It was great to have you a second year. Have a great year and don’t hesitate to let us know if you’d like to make it three years in a row!!
Wonderful location and beautiful views from every window!
We had a great visit in your gorgeous home. It was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 6 children. Super short walk to the beach, clam shacks, ice cream, penny candy store and playground. We hope to return soon!!
Wonderful stay in a delightful setting & terrific home with an amazingly responsive & caring owner
Our 2 weeks in this home unfortunately flew by way too quickly! From the very beginning, despite our very late arrival, David was in contact with us wanting to ensure our safe arrival and entry into the home! He was also readily available to answer any inquiries that arose.
From the pictures on-line, it is evident that this is a beautiful home with gorgeous views. It was very roomy and cozy. There was a very cute welcoming bag with considerable information on local restaurants and sights. Everything we could have needed was available in the house. The kitchen was well-stocked, and while we never turned on the TVs, there were numerous videos available and an extensive selection of books of varied subjects and tastes. The location is unbeatable with ready access to the beach, Four Seas and the Country Store but secluded enough to be immensely relaxing.
It was a gorgeous home and one we would recommend with the highest ratings.
Exceptional in every way!
This was our second consecutive vacation at this magnificent home. Absolutely beautiful, large home that comfortably handled our family of 7 adults and my 3 young grand children. The property was immaculate, with bedrooms and private baths to accommodate our family. The setting is perfect with the home nestled on the river within a block of the beautiful Centerville Beach. The home has beautiful 360 views from multiple decks. We loved every bit of our stay and hope to continue to enjoy vacations here for years to come. My thanks to the Drake family for allowing us to enjoy their beautiful home.
Hey Brian! You guys are great. Come visit us again anytime.
Beautiful Cape Cod Home
We rented the house for a 4th of July family reunion – it was perfect. Our group included 3 couples, one baby and a great grandma. The house was immaculate and well stocked, the kitchen well-equipped (and we like to cook), and there were baby gates, a high chair, a booster seat, pack and play etc. for our little one. The wrap around deck on the first floor and upper deck of the 2nd floor bedrooms offer beautiful views of the beach and a fantastic spot to watch the fireworks (from multiple displays). Easy walk to the beach (beach toys, chairs and umbrellas are available), short walk to ice cream shop and playground. There is a wonderful screened in porch off the kitchen with a table big enough to seat 8. The large first floor deck has moveable posts so you can block it off for little ones. We love the house so much we’ve booked it again for next year!
We are glad you loved your stay - your family photo is magnificent- can’t wait to see you next year!!!
