Enjoy a real Old Fashioned Cape Cod Beach Vacation of Yesteryear at this fantastic house just 200 yards from the entrance of Craigville Beach.

Wake each morning to the smell of the sea air in this fantastic beach get-away with views of the Centerville River AND the ocean. Located only 200 yards from the warm sandy waters of Nantucket Sound at the entrance to Craigville Beach, your friends & family will be transported to an authentic old-fashioned Cape Cod vacation experience in the heart of this historic beach community.

This property has everything you need for a care-free vacation – enjoy your morning coffee from adjoining deck of the second floor Master Bedroom, the full, open kitchen for lunchtime breaks from the beach (Craigville beach is an easy barefoot walk to and from the house), and be your own grill-master in the ample backyard stocked with outdoor furniture for dining & lounging. While you’re out there, you will be amazed by the breathtaking views of the Centerville River and the wild life habitating in the surrounding marsh lands – literally, right in your own backyard. And speaking of yard, there is plenty of room for children to play safely in both the front, side & rear yards of the property. It’s even fenced-in.

With three bedrooms and two and a half baths, there is plenty of room for friends and family to gather and enjoy all Cape Cod has to offer in this centrally located beach house. Of course, there’s the world-famous Craigville Beach just a three driveways away, but you will also find yourself a convenient distance from such other attractions as The Cape Cod Melody Tent, taking a short stroll to the best homemade ice cream on the planet at Four Seas Ice Cream Shop, and exploring Downtown Hyannis’ John F. Kennedy Museum, boutiques, fine dining, casual pubs, the hilarious Joke Shop, and art galleries.

Enjoy shopping in the quaint village of Osterville, just a short drive from the home.

Hyannis Harbor is less than 3 and half miles away. Here you can catch a ferry boat to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket Island for a day of exploring or bike riding. Cycling enthusiasts won’t want to miss a day cycling the peaceful and quaint Nantucket Island. Just grab your lunch in a day pack and cycle through the lovely streets of Hyannis Port to Hyannis Harbor to board you and your bike on the Nantucket Ferry. And don’t forget that Cape Cod offers the quintessential mini-golf experience. We’ve played all over The Cape, and our favorites are Pirates Cove and Skull Island, both located a short distance away on Rt. 28. But please don’t feel like you need to remember any of this. As your hosts, we provide plenty of advice before your trip as to our favorite places to buy the freshest seafood, whale watch, deep sea fish, or just enjoy a nice seafood dinner like a local.

                                                  Richard S.

                                                  Can't beat the location...a 2 minute walk to Craigville Beach. However, the street is very busy. Home is very spacious and the backyard is phenomenal!

                                                  Very charming home, comfortable and roomy. Loved the upper deck wonderful bird watching. Great yard and 2 man kayak was a real bonus need to be mindful of the tide when planning kayaking otherwise not as pleasant.

                                                  Great home, in good condition and super location.

                                                  Peggy G.

                                                  We enjoyed our stay at the home immensely. We were there Aug. 20-26, 2016 with 6 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs. The fenced yard was great for the dogs, although you did have to watch them, as the street is a busy one. The kitchen was amply stocked and we enjoyed it's openness to the dining area. The backyard was a delight, backing up to the river for bird watching. The six year old decided the bay window in the family room was a perfect spot to sleep, with her sleeping bag. She slept there the entire time! As you can see, we made use of every inch of space. The 5 minute walk to the beach was perfect, as we could come back for lunch or anything we forgot. There were plenty of pots, pans and dinnerware. We did go to Tugboats in Yarmouth, a 10 min. car ride, and found the food to be good and the sunset from the outside dining deck, awesome. We would certainly not hesitate to come back again.

                                                  We loved our time at Maria's for the second year.I would like to book for next year and would to know how much of a deposit is required.

                                                  Great location!

                                                  Tracey S.

                                                  Felt right at home and so did our Sheltie. Plenty of room to spread out. The family really enjoyed kayaking and fishing. Hope to book for next year!

                                                  This property is located on a bird sanctuary. Watch Osprey dive for their dinner right in your own backyard. Sandpipers, White Swan, Great Blue Heron, and Egret are all there too. There is nothing like launching the kayak from the backyard in the early morning and quietly watching the goings on of these wonderful birds.
