Why Owner chose East Sandwich

Great Family vacation home, or for couples or a group of friends.

What makes this house unique

Right on private beach which is wonderful for swimming, boating and fishing. The view of the ocean and beach is absolutely beautiful!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just to let you know that we had a perfect stay at The Nautilus. We loved the place, the beach, the beds, the equipment and everything else. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who would like to go to Cape Cod!

Outside 'after swim' shower; blender; sun decks; patio picnic tables; very large deck off kitchen and dining room; private beach. Our beach house is VERY comfortable, and ROOMY for extended families and groups of friends. There is a lot of room, in both our house and on the upper and lower sun decks. Because our house is quite roomy, renters can have their own 'space' and enjoy the peace and quiet of a Cape Cod beach experience. Our beach house is truly a home away from home. It is equipped with lots of creature comforts. Our house is in excellent condition, very clean, nicely decorated and beautifully maintained.


Wonderful! 4.8/5 -

Wonderful beach house!

  • 5 of 5

The Nautilus house is absolutely wonderful! My husband and I decided to visit Cape Cod for our anniversary. This house is right on the water and has everything you could possibly want. There were only the two of us but the house is big enough to accommodate a large family or maybe two couples or families. More important than that was how gracious and helpful the owner was. Lee went over and above to make things work for us. We weren't able to enjoy the house as much as would have liked due to inclement weather but that was nobody's fault but Mother Nature's. I would rent this house again without hesitation.

Owner's Response: We have been very fortunate over the years that we have owned our beach house The Nautilus to have been able to rent to some really nice people. Norma and her husband Tom were such a lovely and pleasant couple. It was a pleasure to have had them stay at our beach house. They were a 10 out of 10!

Cape Delight

We enjoyed ourselves very much in this oceanfront haven. The house was as described and offered many amenities. The proximity to the beach and beautiful views from the deck made each day a pleasant and enjoyable experience. We recommend this property to all who want to experience Cape Cod!

Great Escape

  • 4 of 5

We chose this destination because of it's access to a private beach. Having small children made this home a perfect place to be able to explore the beach but be able to go back to the house in a few short steps for a nap or snack. When we arrived at the home, we were greeted by the housekeeper who was very nice and making the house sparkly clean. The house had every thing that we needed for our week's stay at the beach. We enjoyed many beautiful sunrises, sunsets and even leisurely walks on it's quiet street. We would surely recommend The Nautilus to anyone. The owners were delightful which made our commitment to this home for the week even more comfortable.

Owner's Response: Melanie and her family were absolutely wonderful to have rented to. After accidentally hitting the four star button instead of the five star button and submitting this review, Melanie sent me the following text: "I meant to give it (The Nautilus) 5 out of 5 stars but after I submitted it I could not figure out how to edit it. I hope the writing outshines the stars :)" .

Exceeded my expectations...amazing location, lovely property

  • 5 of 5

Our Family vacation was successful in part because of our home rental. The home was clean and more than we accepted with a fully equipped kitchen and more than enough beds and living accommodations. The air-conditioning was a blessing on those beautiful days when the breezes from the water refused to move! Also, the communication with the home owner when I had questions was easy and thorough and I was happy to be prepared for everything - or almost everything - when I arrived. The only issue that I had was my fault....I failed to read the "items you will need" section of the paperwork that arrived when my rental agreement was complete. I was supposed to bring sheets and towels with me and at the last minute I had to scurry to rent these items from a local establishment....easy but could have been prevented if I read the information first :) All in all, an amazing vacation!

Owner's Response: I must say, Sandy was a delight to have rented to. She and her family were very enthusiastic about their Cape Cod vacation. I am so happy that they thoroughly enjoyed their week. They were a wonderful family to have stay at our beach house.

Car: recommended

Close to places of interest such as museums, auction houses, gift shops, fine dining and art galleries. Golf courses nearby. Great swimming, boating and fishing. An ideal vacation home for families and honeymooners, retired couples, friends, small family reunions, etc. House sits on the sand dune overlooking its private beach, and the ocean. Our beach is a pristine Cape Cod beach. Our beach house is very roomy, clean, modern, comfortable and attractive. It is a wonderful home away from home; a place where great vacations can be enjoyed to the fullest. Our very large upper sundeck and outdoor patio make for fine outdoor living.

Other Activities: We are close to the Sandwich glass museum, one of a kind fine gift shops, great antiquing and auctions, both fine and casual dining summer playhouses, whale watches, boat tours of the Cape Cod Canal, Cape Cod Canal visitors' center, Green Briar nature center, trout hatchery, Heritage Plantation which houses a very large and impressive vintage car museum, as well as paintings, antiques, etc.

Golf: Excellent golf courses which are open to the public both in Sandwich and the surrounding towns
