Waterfront Cape Cod Home on Wooded Acre In Mashpee

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

This charming two story rambling waterfront home is a true taste of Old Cape Cod. The house is a duplex situated on a secluded one acre wooded lot overlooking Great River on Monomoscoy Island, accessed by a short causeway, and part of a protected bird and wildlife sanctuary. Swim and sun bathe off the dock or on the property's own private beach. Go quayhogging, fishing or crabbing along Great River in front of the house and grill your catch for dinner on the backyard patio. Six kayaks and a paddleboard are included with the rental for exploring the many features of Waquoit Bay. ***New for 2017: Added two Riot Quest 10HV kayaks with dry bulkhead area storage. For boat owners we will rent one spot on our dock weekly for an additional fee when available. A public boat landing is available diagonally across Great River from the property. Waquoit Bay is a playground for all boating enthusiasts from water skiers, knee boarders and some of New England's finest wind and kite surfing can be had close-by in the shallows of Waqouit Bay. For bicyclists there are great road and trail routes.

We prefer weekly rentals unless a period is still available less than one month ahead. We find that guests who have time to enjoy the water setting are happier!

We have 32Mbps Internet, Wifi, HDTV with Comcast cable service and land-line phone with unlimited calling in the U.S.A.

The town of Mashpee has several beautiful freshwater ponds and beaches only a short drive away, as well as the famous South Cape Ocean beach on Vineyard Sound. The Mashpee Town Commons offers many upscale clothing and retail stores, restaurants, coffee shops, a movie theater and grocery stores, all within three miles.

Enjoy world class golfing, par 3s, executive, and regulation courses, and even miniature golfing nearby. On a rainy day the Children's Museum at New Seabury, and the Aquarium at Woods Hole makes for great family outings

The house is a side-by-side duplex. There is off street parking for four cars and a small boat trailer. The rental unit has three bedrooms, two full baths, a laundry room and an enclosed sun porch. The ground floor has an open floor plan with the living/dining and kitchen areas overlooking the waterfront. The master bedroom is on the ground floor with two queen sized beds, and its own private bathroom. One of the upstairs bedrooms has two twin beds, and the other upstairs bedroom has three twin beds. All the rooms are comfortably furnished, and all have ceiling or window fans. The living room and all bedrooms are also equipped with air conditioners. There is an outside hot shower, with full privacy screen. Detailed floor plans of both levels are available with the posted photos. Ask us for higher resolution photos.

We will not rent to vacationing students or singles under 25 years of age unless accompanied by an adult guardian or parent. Contact us about this if needed.

If your group is here to attend a wedding in the area or intends to otherwise meet up with others, PLEASE NOTE that in those situations some of our guests have invited many additional people to come over and enjoy the waterfront. The resultant group can easily get too large and some additional visitors then spend the night here. We cannot support large parties or additional overnight guests.

About Deborah Martin

The house was built by my father in the 50's and has undergone several renovations. He lived overseas for most of his life and named the property 'Impian Maas', or 'Golden Dream' in Malay, and it has remained our 'Golden Dream' to this day.

Deborah Martin purchased this house in 1950

Monomoscoy Island Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks in this house overlooking the Great River. It was magnificent. The home was comfortably "homey" inside, comfortable beds, kitchen with all the cooking utensils you may need (including pans), great patio and screened in porch (a nice retreat from the mosquitos!), internet service and TV. We had access to 4 kayaks, a stand up paddle board, and the owners (who live next door) even offered us bikes (we never had time, but thanks just the same!). There is so much to see and explore on the Cape and this was a perfect location for that. The owners provided lots of suggestions for places to go (restaurants, town events, beaches). We found our favorite ice cream hangout in nearby Cotuit (The Polar Cave). There are plenty of saltwater marshes, beaches, towns, and old cemeteries to explore. Plus, Monomoscoy Island is a birders' paradise!

Truly a special place. The house is fine for large families or just a couples getaway. We had a wonderful time and thank the owners, Deb and Tim, for sharing a piece of history and their lovely family home with us.

Beautiful home in wildlife sanctuary

  • 5 of 5

Very nice 3 breakfast, in nice location for exploring all of cape cod and the islands. But be sure to save plenty of time to stay around the house. Deb and Tim go out of their way to give you a great time in this beautiful wildlife refuge. We enjoyed our fire pit at night, with Smores and kayaking (provided) and witnessing I osprey feeding their young. They even set us up to catch blue crabs off their dock. Great time.

I've taken my family all around the world on vacation, and out of all of the places we've gone to, this has been the one we'll never forget.

Not only was the property in immaculate condition, but owners Tim and Deb were awesome. They made sure that everything was perfect !!!!

We immediately felt comfortable knowing that anything and everything we could ask for was provided.

If I had to rate this weekend getaway from 1-10... I'd give it a 20 !!!!!!

My kids and I changed Tim and Debs names to. "Above and Beyond".

Everything about the house was perfect.

Very clean, comfortable, and spacious.

We definitely want to come back and share more classic memories here.

The neighborhood is beautiful and full of Cape charm. TIm and Deb were wonderful, giving us all the info we needed for a wonderful week and our Thanksgiving feast. While the weather was on the cold side, our stay was filled with warmth and joy.
