“Landscapes, like beauty, may well be colored by the eye of the beholder, but steering along tree-shaded route 6a on a mild summer day, with blue inlets of cape cod bay on one side and white picket-fenced houses on the other, I’m tempted to conclude this may be the most appealing stretch of america I know.”

About Nance Carbone

Our family has been renting private vacation homes for twenty years. We know what we like and expect and we try our best to put all those pieces together to insure a comfortable and relaxing retreat. My husband and I have custom built and renovated several houses over the years as a hobby. This house is our first that we have had the opportunity to share and welcome guests. We purchased the house in February 2013 and have enjoyed five successful seasons renting on Cape Cod. I thoroughly enjoy making decorating changes and adding special touches to ensure my guests an enjoyable experience while vacationing here.

Nance Carbone purchased this house in 2013

Why Nance Carbone chose Yarmouth Port

The home is located on a very special piece of property that is surrounded by 300 acres of conservation land and overlooks Great Marshes, a tidal marsh. The nature trails that lead to Grays beach are easily accessed 50 feet away. The sunsets and views are spectacular. As one of my guests had said, 'You feel like you're on your own private island.' During the course of a day, the lighting changes and creates a magical setting. Cape Cod Bay is the only location on the East Coast where you can view the sun setting over the ocean. It is peaceful and serene to be surrounded by nature and view hundreds of species of birds that call this paradise their home along with white-tailed bunnies who frolick in the yard at dawn and dusk. It is located north of Route 6A, very desirable and within fifteen minutes of ferries, train, airport, pristine bay beaches, Cape Cod Playhouse, antique shops, art galleries, museums, clam shacks, multiple golf courses, playgrounds, kayaking, boat launch, charter boats, and whale watching boats. A five minute walk to the newly renovated neighborhood playground and the village store/ice cream shop. A fifteen minute walk to Grays Beach. Only two miles to the newly opened Rail Trail extension and Kings Way Golf Club and Bayberry Hills Golf Course A perfect location in a perfect setting.

What makes this house unique

New front walkway completed fall 2017. Upstairs bathroom being renovated winter 2018, and new Azek deck planned for Spring 2018. The house has been renovated with new carpeting, hardwood flooring, custom tile, recessed lighting, and a new kitchen with cherry cabinets, stainless appliances, and granite countertops.

New siding/trim, several new windows and doors, and new lighting were completed November 2014. All the furnishings, linens, and mattresses are new to ensure total comfort. Added benefits are central a/c, WiFi, flat screen tv's, laundering of bed linens, fully stocked kitchen, use of 4 kayaks, 4 bicycles, 6 beach chairs, cooler, and beach & bath towels at no additional cost. The yard is expansive to enjoy all types of outdoor activities and dog friendly nature trails are only 50' away. Take a walk through the trails and arrive at Grays Beach. Or only two miles to the newly opened Rail Trail extension.

In addition, we own the property next door (property id# 3936094 - Sunset Bay Villa) creating a unique opportunity for guests to rent side by side properties sharing all the amenities that are offered by both homes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I've vacationed on the Cape for decades, and Sunset Bay Cottage was the top of the line in vacation rentals. The home is roomy for a family or for multiple adults; situated in a private neighborhood with beautiful scenery and walking. We arrived to a fresh clean home with many amenities, including snacks and tourist information. While a car is needed for most destinations, the house is convenient to Mid-Cape Highway, Route 6A, and is central for any day itinerary. We brought our dog who was as happy as her owners with the week's retreat. Would definitely return to this rental.

Best of all worlds!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in Sunset Bay Cottage, which was just as advertised. The house was beautifully decorated with a beachy theme, new kitchen, master bedroom, and great living area. A big deck and grill allowed for outdoor entertainment at all times. And of course the sunsets over the marsh were picture perfect. The house was well stocked with an excellent selection of books, puzzles, and board games to go along with wifi and basic cable, and the garage had kayaks, bicycles, and anything you need for a beach or outdoors trip. The location was amazing. Expansive nature trails flow through the woods and marsh right behind the house and go all the way to Gray’s beach, a small spot five minutes away which was great for kayaking and bird watching. We kayaked across to Chapin’s beach to picnic, swim and fish and watch the wildlife, including seals. With the central Cape location, we were never more than 20 minutes away from great restaurants, beaches, marinas, and other attractions (you gotta go to Pirates Cove for miniature golf!) on both the Cape Cod Bay side and Nantucket Sound side. We especially enjoyed the morning whale watch from nearby (10 minutes) Barnstable. Nance provided us with detailed binders filled with great restaurant recommendations and plenty of info for our week, and there is still plenty we would go back for! We highly recommend The Marshside in Dennis for its great atmosphere, food and sweeping views of the marsh. Nance was a hospitable, responsive and caring owner and it showed in every detail of her home. Thank you for a most enjoyable and relaxing week.

Perfect cottage for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year staying at the cottage. We keep coming back because it is just perfect. Nance always adds a little update each year and keeps the cottage in tip top condition. Such comfy furniture and bedding. Great views and location on the Cape. It has everything you would need and more. No complaints from this renter!

Our HOME away from HOME

  • 5 of 5

After five years in a row, we can honestly say Sunset Bay Cottage is our home away from home.

We love all that this home and location has to offer. Activities in the large open backyard, comfortable beds, expansive views and sunsets, deer and osprey sightings, Sesuit Marina only minutes away for all of our fishing and boating trips, kayaking/fishing on Dennis Pond, and shopping along 6A’s specialty shops, farms, and boutiques.

The owners take great care in making sure your stay is comfortable and worry-free. We mentioned that one of the tree branches was hanging low along the driveway. Our family came home from a day at Cold Storage Beach and found Phil and Nance had completely pruned the tree. Thanks for another awesome vacation!!

Sunset Bay Cottage is heaven on Earth ❤️

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything a family needs for the perfect vacation. We enjoyed all the amenities like a brand new kitchen, beautiful furnishings, lovely deck, enormous backyard with the most amazing sunset view. Although our grandchildren were too young to use the bicycles and kayaks, it was wonderful of the owner to have them available. We did enjoy the proximity to beautiful Mayflower Beach and greatly appreciated the beach chairs. We have rented many homes and this has become our favorite.

Sunset Bay Cottage is a beautiful home!!

  • 5 of 5

This was the first time I had ever rented a home for a vacation getaway. The pictures I had seen of the home were beautiful but I was weary. Upon arrival I saw the cottage and fell in love with it. The cottage was immaculate. It's located in a quiet neighborhood. My dad enjoyed taking his dog for a walk. Nance does a very job of maintaining a beautiful home and grounds. The bedrooms are very spacious. The walk in shower in the master bedroom is awesome!! Nance is a very good hostess, she has thought of everything someone could possibly need during a stay at the cottage from bikes to kayaks and beach chairs. The cottage is about 10 minutes to Hyannis. If you decide to visit Hyannis you should try the Brazilian Grill and be sure to bring an empty stomach. The cottage is also about 20 minutes or so to Chatham. Captain Frosty located in Dennis less than 10 minutes from the cottage has the freshest seafood. The lobster rolls are very good as well as the fish and chips. I could not have asked for a better relaxing vacation. I have already reserved the cottage for next year. THANK YOU Nance for the hospitality !!

Beautiful, Comfortable, & Well Stocked!

  • 5 of 5

This is ideal in many ways. The location is fantastic; private, safe, and still close to everything. The owner is very easy to work with. The house itself is charming; great deck, good furnishing and bedding, excellent fireplace and lovely layout. The house is stocked! Kayaks, outdoor furniture, games, kitchen supplies, etc. It was really a bit magical to spend a week adjacent to so much undeveloped public land; like spending vacation on the water in a bird sanctuary. Heaven!

Gray's Beach, Yarmouth Port
Car: recommended

It is known locally as both Grays Beach and Bass Hole. Located only one mile away by conservation trails next to property or by car it is 1.5 miles and offers free parking. There is a roped off area for swimming which is shallow for some distance from shore in a protected bay providing shelter from the often present Cape Cod wind and is ideal for small children. Next to the swimming beach is a launch area for small boats and kayaks, which provides access into Chase Garden Creek for kayakers looking for a marsh river paddle.Travel in the other direction from the launch takes kayaks, sailboats and small powerboats out into Barnstable harbor. With a boat or kayak it is also possible to land on Chapin Memorial Beach in Dennis, which has a beach on both Chase Garden Creek and Cape Cod Bay.Walk along the boardwalk next to the launch area which takes you out to the edge of the harbor where you can watch the boats, the shorebirds, fiddler crabs and fish or just enjoy the marsh itself. At the other end of Gray’s Beach, just past the picnic area there is access to a walking trail through a section of the marsh. An 860' boardwalk takes you out over the marsh to the woods beyond.

The pristine bay beaches are a 15 minute drive down Rt 6A and will not disappoint with their beautiful white sand and calm, warm ocean waters.

The neighborhood playground was completed in June 2015 and is only a 10 minute walk away.
