About the property

Oceanfront Beach House On Private Peninsula

Our cottage is your classic Cape Cod Beach House! Your own Private Beach is only 30' from the cottage. Enjoy swimming directly in front of the cottage in the warmest water (Mid to High 70's in Jul/Aug) on Cape Cod.

Enjoy the Breathtaking Sunsets while you have your dinner on the outside deck. From the deck, you'll have a 180 Degree View of the water and the blazing sunsets. Our cottage faces directly West, thus the sunset will be directly in front of you every night.

You can swim, fish, kayak and enjoy boating right in front of the cottage. If you own a boat, you can load and unload your boat right in front of the cottage. A fantastic destination for boating or kayaking is Bassett's Island, which is right off shore and can be reached by boat in just a few minutes. At the far end of the island, you'll find a beautiful sandy beach. This beach is an excellent beach for swimming and for taking long walks along the shoreline looking for that perfect piece of Sea Glass!

Nature lovers will thoroughly enjoy exploring the many salt marshes and observing the vast variety of water fowl. One of the highlights each summer, is watching the Osprey circling up above and then diving straight down and pulling a fish out of the water with their talons! This goes on all summer and it is absolutely spectacular to watch.

The cottage is located almost at the end of a dirt road peninsula. There are only ten cottages on the peninsula. The neighbors are all great! All of them would be most receptive to answer any questions you might have regarding taking Sightseeing Trips, the area's best Restaurants and where to Shop. The cottage will also have a Vacation Guide for you to browse that will give you a vast amount of information regarding where to go and what to do.

Saltmarsh Lane is a very quiet and safe street. There is very little traffic. The neighborhood is an Excellent area for walking, jogging and biking. You'll enjoy seeing all the classic Cape Cod cottages as you travel throughout the area. Pocasset is one of the top Family destinations on Cape Cod. It is a very beautiful, quaint and safe little oceanfront village. Another major attraction of Pocasset is that it is only 1.5 hours from Boston and ten minutes from the Bourne Bridge!

Within just a five minute drive of the beach house, you'll find many great destinations! The kids will love Cartwheels. This amusement complex has Go Carts, a Bounce House, Bumber Boats, Mini Golf and a Batting Gage. There is also a great playground and Tennis Courts right next to the Pocasset Market. Golfing enthusiasts will love playing at the Brookside Golf Club. The seven mile bike path along the Cape Cod Canal and the Shining Sea Bike Path are great scenic venues for biking excursions. The famous Lobster Trap and Chart Room restaurants are within a five minute drive from the beach house as well.

If you want to venture out just a little bit further, the Town of Falmouth is just a 15-20 minute drive away. In Falmouth, you'll find many shopping opportunities, great restaurants and a movie theater. Woods Hole is nearby as well. In Woods Hole, you'll can hop on a ferry to either Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket! The kids will love visiting the Woods Hole Aquarium as well.

About Owner/Manager

My family owned another waterfront property in Pocasset since 1900. In the late 1970's, the home slipped out of the family when my Grandmother passed away. It was a very sad time. I had spent the first 25 Summers of my life enjoying this 'Slice of Heaven'. Fortunately, we were able to purchase our current Beach House in 1990. Our family has enjoyed many, many very happy summers there ever since!

Owner/Manager purchased this cottage in 1990

Why Owner/Manager chose Pocasset

Our Beach House has, 'Location, Location, Location' as realtors always tell their clients when recommending a home to purchase. In my opinion, our beach house has it all!

What makes this cottage unique

From our great location you can: Swim, Boat, Kayak, Jet Ski, Water Ski, Go Tubing, Walking, Jogging and Biking.

You'll also enjoy the Best Sunsets on Cape Cod and the Warmest Water on the Cape (Mid to High 70's in July/Aug)!

A slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. The photos of the scenery do not do it justice. This is a slice of heaven! Charlie and Kathy were lovely and so helpful. They neighbours were a delight and very kindly let use their kayaks.

The house is small but we never felt on top of each other. There was always a quiet spot to go to. We also loved the outdoor shower!

If you are looking to get away from it all this is the place for you. A beautiful part of the world and we were very sad to leave.

A double bed vs futon would seal the deal.

Owner's Response: Thank You for the 5 Star Review! Yes, we already were planning to replace that futon with a new bed for next year. Hope to have you back soon!

Great Ocean views

Great spot. Rustic cottage with great ocean views. We had great weather, so were lucky to spend most of our time outside. Hope to go back next year!

Amazing Oceanfront Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

We'll be back next summer for sure! This Beach House has a spectacular oceanfront location. Great swimming and boating from right in front of the cottage. Amazing sunsets! Awesome restaurants just 5-10 minutes away.

Amazing beach front location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Kathy and Charlie's beach house getaway for a week n July and had an amazing experience. The cottage was quaint and cheerful and very clean. The bedrooms are cozy and each room has a beautiful window view of the ocean. Kathy and Charlie provided us with everything we needed, from extra beach towels, water shoes, to suggestions on where to eat and what to do. They suggested we check out the famous Chart Room restaurant on the marina, as well as the Lobster Trap. Both were only 5 minutes away by car and were excellent. Every day was filled with swimming, kayaking, walking, jogging, BBQing on the grill, and enjoying absolutely beautiful sunsets. It is so quiet and peaceful here--my husband and I slept like babies every night. Also, the neighbors were great and were very welcoming and helpful. We definitely plan to visit again, but this time will take our kids! It is a very kid friendly house and the location is perfect for family adventures. In addition to the beach in front of the house,There is a marsh area just about a 2 minute walk up the street where many families/children were enjoying and exploring the sea creatures. We know our kids would absolutely love it here. Kathy and Charlie's home is very special and really gets you reacquainted with nature and all it's beauty!

Amazing sunsets. Not so amazing beds.

  • 4 of 5

I would have given five stars here except for the sleeping accommodations and part of the furniture. The only two large beds were futons. And the living room couch cushions should be re-uphusltered or upgraded to a new couch. For the price being asked, this was a disappointment and the only thing that would keep us from renting again next year. It is not a cheap rental and you are really paying for the location. (which is stunning!) None of the adults with us had a good nights sleep...a real bummer on vacation.

If you have kids I recommend packing more clothing than you need. There is no washer dryer. I missed that in the description. We sent a bag to the local laundromat for $33. Not ideal on a vacation. The house did have plenty of towels, but again with kids, we went through all the ones we brought and half of theirs since you can't keep them clean.

The area has a ton to do for all ages. The owners were really lovely and helpful. You will not believe the sunsets. It is an amazing little piece of the world. Perhaps they'll make some upgrades for next year. It was a wonderful week other than the above notes.
