Beach house, 5 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)
This is one of few houses so close to the ocean, yet with a very large yard and centrally located in the heart of everything Falmouth has to offer.
The beach is such an easy walk that some have even done it barefoot! You can build sandcastles, play a game of pickup volleyball or just explore the shoreline. Kids love the inlet behind the beach which is always teeming with little fish and crabs. There are plenty of beach toys, chairs and books at the house that you can use for many fun-filled days at the beach.
The backyard is large enough to play a game of whiffle ball, throw a Frisbee or let the clan run around to their hearts’ content. The screened-in porch flows onto a beautiful brick patio and then into the backyard - so everyone can be part of the family summer fun. There is a refreshing outdoor shower with separate changing rooms - perfect after a day at the beach, or for every morning! The house is set in a neighborhood with other beautifully maintained, picturesque Cape Cod houses. You can spend hours strolling or biking around the neighborhood admiring the houses and the views and breezes of ocean.
The large, modern eat-in kitchen is fully-stocked and centrally located in the house. It flows directly onto the breezeway and patio for easy barbecuing, and on the other end, into the large dining room and easily into the living room. There are plenty of pots, pans and utensils so you can cook-up a vacation feast, or order in from the many nearby restaurants.
Inside, enjoy the rustic charm of this large beach house. There are plenty of spaces for separate activities: watch movies in the living room, play games on the large table in the adjacent dining room, read quietly in the screened porch or out on patio, in the sunshine or under the stars, while you enjoy the summer ocean breezes. The house has 5 beautiful bedrooms, 4 upstairs and one downstairs.
The house is centrally located – you can stroll down the shoreline and to several Falmouth beaches. The house is also an easy walk in the other direction to Green Pond Marina where you can join the locals who fish from the platform. The ferry for a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard is only a 5-minute drive from the house. You can also find great restaurants along the Falmouth Harbor – or just admire all the boats. The Harbor also is home to a bandshell where musicians play during the summer and where Falmouth hosts its classic car shows. Picturesque Falmouth Main Street is also nearby, where you can find many quaint Cape Cod restaurants and shops. Or you can spend an evening in the ballpark cheering on the Falmouth Commodores who play other Cape Cod teams in the Cape Cod Baseball League. Groceries and movie theatres are a 5-minute drive in the other direction.

What a great spot! House slept 8 of us comfortably. We cooked an amazing dinner and had everything we needed from spatulas to serving platters! Kids played soccer in the back yard and flew a kite in the front yard, such a great property! Dining room table also accommodated, simultaneously, Monopoly and Scrabble games on a rainy day! There's talk of making this an annual trip! Thank you thank you thank you for such an iconic Cape house!
Lovely Beach Rental
We had a great time at this rental. The house was a little outdated, but very charming with plenty of space for 7 people (4 adults and 3 teens). The beach was just a short walk away from the house. I would say you will need a car to get around because restaurants are a short drive away. Downtown Falmouth had some great restaurants and coffee shops.
I should also mention that there is no air conditioning. While we went early enough where this was not a problem and they do provide a few fans, i think that in the heat of the summer, it could get pretty hot.
My only complaint about the house would be that there are no locks on any of the inside doors, including the bathrooms. While that might not be a problem for some people, when you have teenagers in the house, they dont always follow the "knock before you come in" rule.
All in all, we loved the house and will definitely stay here again if we come back to Falmouth!
Comfortable house, great location
Perfect house for a great girls weekend, each had their own room but we spent lots of time around the kitchen table! House was very comfortable and close to many great restaurants. It was a short ride to ferry and we spent a day in Nantucket. Would definitely plan again to return to this house!
It Felt Like Home!
Recently I rented this house for a getaway along with five other women. We had a perfect vacation. We stayed three nights and we all commented how the house just felt like home! We prepared most of the meals in the house and the kitchen was just the right size with all the right equipment. There was a large dining room table which had more than enough room and in the evenings we sat in the comfortable living room. The area was perfect for walks in the morning and evening along the beach. We saw the most beautiful sunset and collected seashells. We would definitely rent this house again!
Fun in Falmouth
My group had a great time at this house in Falmouth. The location is very close to everything you need including the end of the Falmouth Road Race (Falmouth Heights). It is on a slightly busy road but the house sits far enough back on the property & has such a great backyard it's hardly noticeable.
The house is older and needs updating but it was comfortable & had what we needed (including cable tv and wifi for my kiddo who needs her morning cartoons!).
Owners and the property rental company were both very quick to respond to the couple of issues we had.
Our family would stay here again :)
We truly enjoyed the beautiful private beach in this lovely neighborhood. Home has a gorgeous backyard perfect for families with lots of space. Convenient amenities include a first floor bedroom . Fantastic view of the ocean! Hope to stay again!
