About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

The perfect location for the perfect week on Cape Cod in Harwich Port, a quaint, historic seaside village recently listed in 'Coastal Living Magazine' as one of America's Happiest Seaside Towns and "Country Living" Magazine as one of the best of America's small towns, it rents weekly in season and nightly off season. Built only 13 years ago, it is attached to our 1850 Greek Revival 'Sea Captain's' house, is on a quiet street almost within the village with little shops, wonderful restaurants and only 700 yards to a beautiful warm water beach on Nantucket Sound. The property is around the corner from a 9-hole golf course and is a short distance to a ferry that leaves for Nantucket Island three times daily in season.

The unit is light and airy with cathedral ceilings and a private 2nd floor entrance off your own deck. There is a separate king bedroom and a large bath with a walk in over-sized shower. Complimentary cot is available which can fit in the bedroom if desired. The large bedroom air conditioning unit cools both rooms with ceiling fans. We have an enclosed hot/cold water outdoor shower for after those days at the beach.

We welcome pets for a small additional fee and offer outside space for relaxing or sunning. We also provide beach towels, chairs and an umbrella to use and have safe storage for bicycles.

An excellent offering for a single, couple or small family at a reasonable price. Space most comfortable for a maximum of 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. We accept PayPal and checks.

About Sheila

My husband was born, raised and educated in New England and always knew he would settle on Cape Cod after leaving our business in the suburbs of Boston. We chose Harwich for it's friendly village atmosphere and convenience to easily reaching all the Cape has to offer. We have a home-based business selling antiques, with a specialty in fine art, through our website and by traveling around the Eastern U.S. where we exhibit at antique shows. We love to spend any spare time traveling to interesting destinations around the world. Our combined family of 7 adult children includes 2 granddaughters (one in Australia!) and our in-house 'master' Siamese cat Tobey.

Sheila purchased this apartment in 1978

Why Sheila chose Harwich Port

We put this addition on our home to accommodate needed garage storage, a new kitchen for cooking and entertaining and to accommodate our combined family from various parts of the country and world off season, and as a rental in the summer season.

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy our quiet, convenient location for long neighborhood and beach walks, nearby access to the Cape Cod bike trail and spacious yard and deck for relaxing and vegetable gardening. We also love the character and charm of our antique home.

Great way to spend the Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect. The owners (Sheila and Roy) saw to it that our questions were answered prior to our arrival and all details covered. Everything about the apartment and our stay was just as we had hoped (or better). We arrived a bit late (after hours) and lights were already on to welcome us. Perfect location ---- so convenient to all of the places we wanted to go to. Everyone who asked us where we were staying confirmed "oh, what a GREAT location". We did not bring our pet but it is pet friendly so we will keep that in mind for future stays. And yes, we would indeed stay again. The apartment was just the perfect amount of room and space for my husband and I. Clean, efficient (full kitchen), lots of notes around the apartment letting you know how things work etc. This apartment exuded a true warm and welcoming feel. Loved it!

Shelia was extremely kind and welcoming! She made us feel at home! She even left candy for us and dog treats for our puppy. I would recommend this rental to anyone looking to stay in Harwich.

Lovely house in a lovely spot!

  • 5 of 5

It was lovely and private and so much more spacious than staying in a hotel. It is a short walk to the local Main street with cafes, restaurants, shops and banks. Harwich Port is located in a great spot on the Cape, with a lovely safe beach within walking distance. The "apartment" had everything we could need. The hosts were helpful and caring. we only wish we could have stayed longer.

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

Our first time on the Cape, and it couldn't have been better! The place was great, very warm and welcoming. All the amenities you could want. Sheila and Roy were gracious hosts, and provided a wealth of information and suggestions on what to do and where to eat.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect for my/our needs. It is light, airy, well-decorated, clean, comfortable, well-stocked...the list goes on and on. I had high expectations for the apartment even before I arrived from pictures I had seen and communication I had with the owner. I am delighted to say when I got there, everything exceeded my already high expectations. Each day, we were busy out and about all over Cape Cod. In the back of my mind, I knew that at night we would be returning "home". It literally felt that way. It so far surpasses a hotel room. We ate in the meals we wanted to eat in and ate out only when we wanted to. The hosts are delightful. There if you need them and very helpful, but not obtrusive in any way.

For me, the location was perfect. Easy to get to most areas of the cape without a particularly long car ride. While I love a good miniature golf course and T-shirt shop now and then, I don't want to be surrounded by them. The town is quaint and very tasteful.

Easy access to nearby beaches and a short drive to the CC National Seashore.

If you're still wondering whether this apartment is right for you, consider if what I described above appeals to you. If so...YES, YES, YES!
