Make plans for a Fall Get-away!
As seen on the pages of This Old House Magazine, The Cape Cod Times, and featured in a calendar of relaxing porches of Cape Cod, Sonny by the Sea is the perfect place to spend your vacation. Close to all of the beauty and charm of Cape Cod, but tucked into a quiet little neighborhood, there is so much to see and do that you could park your car and never use it again. Every detail has been thought of, and there are many personal touches that will make you feel at home from the minute you arrive. It has all the charm of a boutique inn with the privacy of your own home, and we are always happy to help you plan your visit with an insider's view to all of the best places to see and things to do while you are here.
Our cottage, Sonny by the Sea, is a beautiful place where you are sure to return home relaxed and full of happy memories. Our guests are important to us, and we think it is the details that set us apart from other rental properties. Our cottage has over sixty - 5 star reviews on homeaway.com and is in the top ten of over 6,070 properties listed according to reviews!
Beautifully decorated, super clean, comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 full bath home with central air conditioning, wifi, cable tv , linens, and washer/dryer all on one floor. Enjoy family meals at home in our custom designed kitchen, or have a snack at the kitchen island. If you'd rather not cook - that's OK too, have your lobster and ''chowdah'' cooked to go at Osterville Fish Too just up the road. Better yet, have dinner or cocktails with a view of the harbor at the Mattakeese Wharf - no need to take the car! Stroll down the street to one of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod. Be sure to take in a sunset too - beach chairs and towels are here for you, just bring your own flip-flops. The house is just steps to a beautiful saltwater marsh, and the Mill Way Marina is just a block away - you can go on a charter boat or Whale Watch, eco tour, or just watch as the locals unload their 'catch of the day'. Relaxing porch out front, and deck with dining table and grill surrounded by beautiful gardens in the private back yard. Clean up after a day a the beach in the outdoor shower.
Barnstable Village has something for everyone, and you can walk to everything from our cottage! Millway Beach is just down the road, with a beautiful view of Sandy Neck Lighthouse. The beach is sandy, and the water gentle. Walk to Millway Marina for charter fishing, restaurants and ice cream, public boat launch too. Put your kayak in the saltwater marsh and head over to Sandy Neck. A short walk past the marina is a playground for the little ones to enjoy, and then head to Main Street for shopping, restaurants, antiques, museums and more. Haunted and history tours also available, and organic farm to pick up some local grown fruit, veggies and flowers. There is a farmers market in town in-season. Located Mid-Cape, it is an easy ten minute drive to Hyannis for nightlife, ferries to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket
