About Sharon

We live near the ocean in New Hampshire and use our Nantucket Sound beach cottage in the spring & fall off seasons. Unlike others' purely rental properties, this cottage is fully equiped for our family's needs and comfort. Every summer, our daughter's family spends a beach week at the cottage. It's a perfect all generations vacation spot.

Sharon purchased this cottage in 1985

Why Sharon chose South Yarmouth

My family vacationed in the cottage complex in the 1960s. When this larger oceanfront cottage with extensive closet space became available, we bought it and later fully remodeled it throughout adding a kitchen, raising the cathedral ceiling and adding large bay windows. Recently, we repainted the cottage interior, totally redid the bathroom, replaced all flooring and installed a completely new kitchen. Relax and enjoy ocean vistas or walk the beach right from our cottage.

What makes this cottage unique

Easy barefoot beach access across lawn and gardens. Everything you need for a complete relaxing vacation is handy, right there at your well equipped beach cottage. The beach is gentle and has soft, white sand. Watch children play while overlooking the beach on lawn chairs.

Away from the cottage and back across the street 150 yards away is a restaurant with outdoor ice cream stand and a children's playground with shaded gazebo.

The Perfect Summer Escape!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully updated cottage just a few steps from a clean and private beach. Fresh linens and daily housekeeping is an added bonus. There is plenty to do in the area for families and small children, but our favorite part of the day was sitting on the lounge chairs with a glass of wine overlooking the beach and watching the sunset. Sharon is so wonderful and was available for any questions we had during our stay. We are looking forward to returning next summer!

Perfect Honeymoon/Romantic/Family Place

  • 5 of 5

We got to spend a week in this beautiful cozy cottage for our honeymoon and it was perfect!!! Cottage is full of everything you need for your stay, just need your beach towel and you are good to go!! Phil and Sharon are so nice and helpful!! There is a great food place across the street that we loved!! We loved that we were just a few steps away from the ocean! The weather was perfect for us and we were able to enjoy the sun and ocean breeze so close to where we were staying. There is so much you can do in the Cape and this is a perfect place to stay on your trip! I highly recommend this place and hope to travel again there soon! :)

Cape Cod with a view

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just spent a week at this splendid cottage. We couldn't have been more pleased! It's in pristine condition and has everything you need to make your time here special. Even a working fireplace, which just added to the overall coziness of this cottage. It has a separate bedroom with a firm kingsize bed. We slept later here than we ever do at home. The cottage has a view of the ocean and the beautifully kept grounds. Adirondack chairs and a table outside your front door make for a perfect reading spot or just to sit and daydream with a drink. The beach and grounds are as advertised: private and beautiful. Although the nights were a little chilly we managed to sit out by the beach every night to enjoy the ocean view and the gently rolling waves. The cottages themselves are in a great location to explore the rest of the Cape. We managed to explore the entire Cape in a week and even managed a full day on Martha's Vineyard. The cottages are less than an hour to the ferry. What's nice as well is that no cars are allowed on the grounds themselves, you park across the street and wheel your things to the cottage. Sharon (the owner) was just right in her handling of the rental itself. Made the whole process very simple. This place is the best kept secret on the Cape. Perfect in every way. Highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys; sun, sand, surf and beautiful surroundings!

Waterfront Family Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this great cottage for the last three summers and it could not be

more comfortable or charming! The cottage has a lovely view of the water and comes completely stocked with

everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is updated and the family room is spacious. We love early morning strolls on the beach, swimming, and bike riding on the nearby trails. There is a terrific restaurant across the street and a nearby park you can walk to. The grounds are well kept and the shared barbecue area makes cooking outside a nice experience. I would recommend this picturesque spot to anyone!!!

Great Cape escape!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay in the W. Yarmouth area that would put us very close to the beach - we were lucky to find this cottage! It is well-appointed with lots of thoughtful touches to make our stay comfortable, and we couldn't have been happier with the beach access and proximity to lots to see, do, and eat. We loved waking up early and taking our coffee for a walk on the beach, and then we would venture out for a delicious breakfast at one of the local favorites. It was especially nice to visit the Cape in June, as the weather was beautiful and it wasn't too crowded. We've already reserved a week for next summer, and we'll be bringing our new baby girl with us this time!

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I can't say enough fantastic things about this property. Sharon was quite accommodating and kept in touch before and during our stay to make sure everything was as to our liking. Our boys, 12 and 14, loved the place. They spent hours beach combing, swimming and generally getting along (for those of you with kids of this age, you know exactly what I'm talking about). Local activities like kayaking on swam river, fishing excursions and being so close to local attractions like the chatham fish pier made this cottage the ultimate place to vacation. Topped with the local cuisine and history of the cape, and the cottage, we would highly recommend this property for families of all ages. We can't say enough great things about Sharon and our new found friend Pablo!
