Walk only 2 minutes to a secluded, warm, clean, white sandy ocean beach through our private access path at the end of our quiet dead-end street. Brand new! Sandcastle Suite, just completed in January 2005, built in the Cape Cod style, sits quietly tucked away on a scenic wooded lot in a tranquil residential neighborhood in Hyannis. It is smartly set back 150 feet from the road for privacy. You may walk one mile to the historic village center. Some close attractions include the Kennedy Memorial and Family compound and a quaint New England fishing harbor with ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard & great family activities. The two-story, two bedroom suite boasts a spacious interior featuring large rooms which are comfortably furnished. The suite is part of a traditional Hyannisport style compound. As you enter your vacation suite and its totally private entrance, you'll be put at ease by the warm wood feeling of traditional New England bead-board ceiling & two giant skylights. A large gazebo is just outside your door.

The open loft feel of the space is inviting and spacious. The great room has tremendous light. The half bath is conveniently located on the ground floor, along with galley wet bar style kitchenette with all amenities. Moving along to the upstairs, you'll find the living room/loft complete with flat TV/CD, now with HBO sofa, chair and stereo. The two bedrooms and connected bathroom are also upstairs, and include ten oversized windows. Enjoy the evening stars through the skylight above the bathroom whirlpool jacuzzi. This spacious suite is adjoining the home of your hosts Anni and Greg, who have 40 years combined experience in the hospitality field. For the past ten years, they have owned and operated Harbor Hide-A-Way/six bedroom vacation home, which can also be found on this website at HomeAway.com/105260.

The entire Cape is accessible from your home base in Hyannis, including Hyannisport, home of the Kennedy Memorial and family compound. Enjoy all types of boating, golf and great striped bass fishing nearby. Island ferries are easy to get to for a day spent on Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard or perhaps take a shorter harbor cruise or deep sea fishing excursion. Swimming, surfing and boogie boarding, as well as golfing are also recommended activities. And don't forget the most popular local adventures - The Duckmobile Tour (land and sea) and Pirate Ship search for treasure, which both depart from Hyannis harbor.

The short walk down to the beach was awesome for a sunset walk or a day at the beach. The location in Hyannis was great with all the restaurants and places to visit. The owner Greg, has so much knowledge of where to go, eat, and visit. If you are nice enough, he will give you a private boat ride which was one of the best parts of my vacation. So that is why I would go and stay at the Sand Castle Suite. (Ellianna, 11 years old)

Thank you Ellianna for your very thoughtful comments. I too really enjoyed taking your family out on my boat! You are a fantastic swimmer!!! I'm so pleased to know you & your brother had such a great time. Your parents were extremely friendly as well. I also enjoyed our lunch on the harbor...pulling up to the slip at Baxter's Fish & Chips! I look forward to your family returning to Sandcastle Suite. Thanks again!

This house was very clean, and big for two people. It was easy to reach the ferry by bicycle, and visit Nantucket or Martha's vineyard islands. Also, it's very central for visiting all Cape Cod.

                                                                          The owner Greg give us very good reference for restaurants, not only for Hyannis and Yarmouth, but everywhere in Cape Cod. Greg help us also to discover interresting area in Cape Cod.

Owner is very knowledgable of region's activities, attractions and restaurants. There's a 2 minutes walk to a quiet beach spot. We had the chance to be taken on a boat ride with Greg. We highly recommend this place.

                                                                          I had never gone "outside the box" when looking for vacation rentals, using known hotels, homes, etc. We took a chance and the results couldn't have been more rewarding. The area is so scenic, so relaxing, so calming. I truly can't envision vacationing anywhere else. The Sandcastle was more than enough room for my wife and me. Comfortable, clean, a short walk to the beach, and within walking distance of shoppes and restaurants. Greg was a wonderful host, with local knowledge second to none and wonderful stories of days gone by on the Cape. While the lack of air conditioning might have been a problem had the weather been hotter the well ventilated home and plenty of local fans kept the Suite comfortable at all times. I can't wait to vacation there again, hopefully taking advantage of Greg's other properties to possibly include our large extended family. A wonderful experience

                                                                          Great Stay for Four!

It was impeccably clean when we arrived, roomy enough that our two small children had plenty of space to play, and was a half-block away from a private beach! It was also only a few minutes' walk to town, which was great. Greg was a great host, and always available if we had any questions.

                                                                          It's worth noting the lack of air conditioning in the suite... don't let that deter you from booking! There are many windows and the whole place is very well ventilated. To be honest, I didn't even realize there was no AC until my wife mentioned it as we were beginning our drive home. Highly recommend this great suite!

We found it very clean, comfortable and everything was well cared for. The suite was everything as described. The beach was private and just a short walk from our front door. Can't say enough about how nice the beach was! We found the Sandcastle to be very relaxing, quiet and would gladly go back again.

Within walking distance from the house, you'll discover great shops and restaurants. The entire Cape is accessible from your home base in Hyannis, including Hyannisport, home of the Kennedy Memorial and family compound. Enjoy all types of boating, golf and great striped bass fishing nearby. Island ferries are easy to get to for a day spent on Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard or perhaps take a shorter harbor cruise or deep sea fishing excursion. Swimming, surfing and boogie boarding, as well as golfing are also recommended activities. And don't forget the most popular local adventures - The Duckmobile Tour (land and sea) and Pirate Ship search for treasure, which both depart from Hyannis harbor.
