Why aldona charlton chose Wellfleet

The tip of the cape has fabulous light, even on dark days. This property has complete privacy, great surfing beach nearby, and amazingly clean fresh air with a breeze almost always blowing. The house has plenty of space and light to let everyone in your group enjoy a rewarding vacation. Private walking path through the woods next to the house.

What makes this house unique

Biking, hiking, lazing on the sun deck, reading (lots of books in our library), surfing, whale watching (sometimes from shore!)...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had our parents (both sets) join us this past summer. That is often a recipe for disaster, but, miraculously, everyone had a wonderful time. I was so thrilled my kids were able to really get to know their grandparents - and that the grandparents enjoyed each others company. Everyone had their separate space as well as a beautiful common area. Would not have worked in a traditional home. Let's hear it for open spaces. And beautiful design for the upper windows. We cooled off at night and were never too hot.

Simply wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

I grew up vacationing at my grandparents house in Wellfleet, and spent many adult years renting on CC as well as staying at my parent's vacation home in Brewster. This property does not disappoint! It's well appointed, spacious, private, and simply beautiful. My family of four joined my sister and a friend. Plenty of space for everyone to relax. My 12 and 14 year old children loved the property and seeing wild turkeys on the patio! Great proximity to town, restaurants, beaches, and ponds. An excellent and relaxing vacation with all the comforts of home. Perfect spot!

Spacious and gracious

  • 5 of 5

We have rented for years in Wellfleet simply because we love the outer Cape experience. This year we decided to upscale from your basic wood paneled cottage. We are so happy we did. This house is light, airy, well appointed and so easy to be comfortable and entertain in. No dark nooks or crannies. Bedrooms are private of course, but light-filled and beautifully decorated. The pictures show a wooden table outside, but I think the pics are older, because now there is a huge iron table with 8 chairs and room for extras. Same for back deck: there are 4 steam loungers along with an iron table and chairs and a huge umbrella to provide shade when the sun becomes too intense. We spent a lot of time out there and I miss it already. Kids played well just off the kitchen in the swing area and we could keep on eye on them through the large windows while we were cooking in the huge kitchen, which has everything you need to present a perfect meal. Loved the private setting that was so close to town and all the great swimming ponds and beaches.

Unique and beautifully appointed

  • 5 of 5

Over the years my family has rented numerous summer homes in Wellfleet. For five years, we owned one. This house rates as a favorite experience. The house is unique, modern, clean, and extremely well-appointed. The two patios, one with a table that would seat eight easily and the other in a sunny spot with comfortable lounge chairs, look down a wooded hillside. I saw hummingbirds, an owl (a real one, not the ones placed to discourage predators), and many songbirds. The perennial gardens are beautiful. The owners have furnished and decorated the house tastefully and eclectically. While everything you need is there, everything you don't need is not (for example, the medicine cabinets, bureau drawers, and bedroom closets are empty and ready for your stuff). It is extremely private and yet conveniently located because you can get to Wellfleet town and harbor on quiet back roads without getting on Route 6.

Part of the house's charm is the unique architecture. The concrete floors are cool and clean. Natural light and cooling breezes come through the skylights in nearly every room. This means that if you are light sensitive you will wake with the morning light. My guess is that some people will love this and some people will not.

We very much enjoyed our stay!

Unusual home, not great for kids

  • 3 of 5

The home is beautiful and about a mile from downtown Wellfleet. There is a spacious master suite and 4 other bedrooms. We had two families stay. The family that got the master suite was very happy with their space. There was a bedroom, small office, and bathroom. Doors led outside to clothesline and outdoor shower. The other couple was less happy because their choice of bedrooms wasn't ideal. One of the bedrooms had an open ceiling, so light and noise got in. The other big bedroom was far from a bathroom. The half bath doesn't have a sink, just a toilet. There is a play structure, but the house is on a hill on a fairly busy street, so there wasn't a lot of room for kids to play. The kitchen was well-stocked with cooking equipment, and there were plenty of places to eat. There wasn't much communal space, especially for adults wanting to read out of earshot of the kids. The house had no air conditioning, but was well-ventilated. We were cool in the dead of summer. They had wireless internet, though the cable TV stations were limited. This house would be best for one couple with a bunch of teenagers. Not so great for active younger children. Lots of cement, which kept the house cool but transmitted sound.

Owner's Response: There is plenty of room for kids to run around. Lawn in front, huge private driveway, lots of green space below and above house for kids to wander. Lots of communal space: kitchen, dining room, living and 2 outdoor patios and plenty of places to go away from the kids, if they will let you.
