About the property

Newly Updated 3 / 2, Very large yard, Minutes to the beach, town, marina!

(Direct link to our VRBO site: WWW.CAPEVACATION.NET, Call-1.917.830.7581) Centrally located in Harwich Port with close proximity to the beach, harbors, downtown, and local attractions, our home is a spacious and custom "Cape" with the ambiance of a beachside cottage, with the amenities of a modern home. With everything you could want within very close proximity and all your desired amenities onsite, The Port House is the perfect hub for a relaxing and refreshing summer vacation, weekend getaway (for golf etc.), wedding trip, or long-term stay. In total, there are three large bedrooms (two queen beds / one double / two single rollaways; can sleep up to 8 people comfortably) and two full bath's including walk-in shower and full bathtub. 6 Doane Way features a luxurious four season sunroom, outside brick deck, and very large front and backyards. Furthermore, the home is fully heated with an AC unit in each bedroom, and high definition cable and high speed internet available year round.

The Port House is a two-story, 3-bedroom 2-bathroom house that was recently updated. It is well built, spacious, and very clean traditional Cape that has hardwood floors and hand-finished ceilings throughout the premise. The first floor features a spacious living room w/ a flat screen TV and DVD player that is perfect for the family to watch a game /movie or catch up on the days events. The living room is well lit and open. With room for the whole family and a fireplace, the dining room is the perfect place to enjoy a meal with the family during any month of the year. Adjacent to the living room, is a bright and energizing sunroom, which is the perfect location to read a good book, catch the afternoon sunset, or watch a ball game on the new 40'' SONY flatscreen TV. The room has comfortable seating, including chairs, table, and a comfortable microfiber couch (great for an afternoon nap!). Also, a full kitchen is located off the dining room and comes equipped with an oven, stovetop, heating oven, refrigerator/freezer (brand new), microwave (brand new), dishwasher (brand new). The kitchen overlooks the backyard and features an eating area for dining and cabinet space for storage. This versatile kitchen is great for cooking small meals or a large feast! Finally, a master bedroom resides on the first floor. The suite features a Queen Bed as well as a flat screen TV. A full bathroom (with marble "him & her" shower) is accessible from both the bedroom and the kitchen. Finally, a washing machine (brand new) and dryer are located on the first floor.

The second floor houses two additional bedrooms (Queen and Double) and a large bathroom (including bathtub). Both bedrooms have a large walk-in closet and room for a rollaway bed, which are located in each respective closet. Both bedrooms have sitting areas (with a flat screen TV in the larger of the two) and one of the bedrooms has a daybed for the kids to take a nap. For convenience (and quiet), families can enclose the upstairs area.

A outdoor brick deck is directly accessible from the sunroom. During the summer months, the deck has outdoor furniture and grill, making it the perfect place for a summer cookout. Furthermore, our home has a very large backyard (with a brand new 6 ft fence) and a large front yard, which is a great place for the kids to play or to host a gathering with friends and family. Finally, the outdoor deck features an outside shower with a changing area, stereo, and lighting to rinse off or take a relaxing shower after the beach. The prevailing southwest wind off the water makes the deck and yard a Summer/Fall favorite.

Finally, the property features an attached garage with a small bluestone patio located outside the garage. There is a beach buggy, wagon, sand toys etc. located in the garage.

We want our home to be your preferred Cape Cod destination year around. We want our guests to feel welcome and lodging to be the easy part of the equation. Currently, we are in the process of upgrading the property and always look to our tenants for feedback. We consider ourselves a partner in maximizing the potential of your stay! Whether you are looking to spend a week or two during the summer or a golf weekend in the Fall, we hope you consider The Port House.

Just steps from Wyndemere Bluffs beach, Allen Harbor, and downtown, 6 Doane Way is a great Cape Cod destination (see location description). Our family has spent our summers in the area for over the last 20 years. We hope to spend many more years in Harwich and hope that you can join! Please don’t hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.

With 3 large bedrooms/2 full bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen, large front and back yard, four season patio, and a outdoor deck, family and friends have the ideal space to create long lasting family memories. With a 1-2 minute walk to the beach, home base is never far away.

Our home is available during the summer and off-season for long and short-term stays enabling our guests to enjoy all aspects of New England living.

What makes this house unique

Large front and back yard, 2 outdoor patio decks, four season sun room (the day bed is great!), spacious closets, eat-in kitchen, AC, cable and internet, and a very short walk to the beach, downtown, marinas, restaurants, and locala attractions.

Perfect house on Cape Cod!!

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideal for my family! It is an extremely well maintained home with all the amenities we could have asked for. All the rooms are spacious and bright. My parent’s used one of the upstairs bedrooms, complete with a sitting area; providing them a space of their own to retreat to in the evening. My wife and I enjoyed the first floor master bedroom and the beautiful marble shower in the master bath. There are large closets and plenty of drawer space in each bedroom making it easy to unpack. The open living space was laid out perfectly enabling us to enjoy each other’s company while having separate spaces to read, watch tv, or play games. The sunroom was a family favorite!!

The furniture and mattresses were very comfortable, and the decor is delightful. The kitchen is very well equipped; more kitchenware and glasses than I have in my own house! The kitchen and patio, as well as the dining room, provided more than ample places to dine. I’ve been vacationing on the Cape for years and this is one of the best locations I’ve stayed. The location was perfect; we were able to walk everywhere we wanted in minutes, the beach, downtown, and ice cream shops.

The owner is exceptionally accommodating and welcoming. It was clear from the start Scott was committed to providing us with the best experience possible and he exceeded all of our expectations!! We have stayed in a number of VRBO properties and this house was definitely the best we have experienced.

Amazing Property and Experience

  • 5 of 5

It’s rare reality surpasses the photos and online reviews, 6 Doane Way did! This rental was fantastic for me and my family, especially with our parent’s joining us. Keeping this summer home pristine is clearly a priority for the owner, inside and out. The sunroom was my favorite place, it was the perfect spot to read a book and listen to music (love the in-ceiling speakers). The kitchen had everything we required and then some, the yard and patio meticulously maintained and that outdoor shower was something out of a design magazine, music and lights!! The location was perfect for our family; very quick walk to a lovely beach, ice cream shop, and to charming main street for shopping, dinner and drinks. Also great for long walks and jogs along beach roads and harbor. Last but not least, the owner goes above and beyond to make his quests feel comfortable, welcomed and relaxed, taking the time to personally ensure we had a incredible vacation. We highly recommend this home!!

Immaculate home in perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family lucked out when with this beautiful home! As we got to know the Cape during our week's vacation, we realized that we couldn't have asked for a better central location to explore the area while having walking access to a beach and town location. The immaculate home was charming and homey, and we can't wait to visit again!

Excellent house in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5

This house worked out extremely well for our family vacation. There was one room for me, my wife, and our 7 year old son; another room for my brother and his girlfriend; and a master bedroom for our parents. The location was ideal with a beautiful beach and downtown Harwich Port all within walking distance. It was also convenient to have a supermarket and CVS pharmacy nearby. The go-karts, bumper boats, and trampolines are all very close, along with some great bars and restaurants. The house was very clean and well maintained. We spent a lot of time on the patio and playing games out in the big and beautiful backyard. Scott was very nice and accommodating. I would recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in Harwich Port.

An Ideal Spot!

  • 5 of 5

This house was ideal for our family gathering! It is a lovely, traditional Cape Cod house, and Scott and Brian have done a wonderful job of renovating and updating it. All the rooms are spacious and light-filled. Our adult son and his girlfriend used one of the upstairs bedrooms, complete with a sitting area. Our daughter, her husband, and our 5-year-old grandson stayed in the other upstairs bedroom, which includes a daybed and a play area, complete with books and games. My husband and I enjoyed the master bedroom and the luxurious marble shower in the master bath. There are large closets and plenty of drawer space in each bedroom. The open living room and dining room, as well as the sun room, provide lots of places for relaxing separately or being together. There is comfortable seating everywhere, and the decor is beautiful, including original Cape Cod art. The kitchen is well-equipped --- I've never seen so many glasses! The kitchen and patio, as well as the dining room, provide varied places for dining. We entertained additional family members a couple of times. Our extended family has been coming to the Harwich Port area for more than 50 years, and this house has a great location, near the charming village of Harwich Port, as well as near the lovely private beach. The beach equipment and toys were well-used by us. Scott is a gracious, warm, and generous host, communicating efficiently, offering us extra beach chairs and another beach umbrella, and recommending the most appropriate restaurants, ice cream places, and golf courses for our group. Some of us went kayaking, biking, and exploring the National Seashore and the Monomoy Wildlife Preserve with tourist info Scott provided. We have stayed in several VRBO properties in various parts of the country, and this house was definitely the best we have experienced in terms of comfort, beauty, and livability!

Car: recommended

Centrally located at the intersection of major tourist attractions and activities for families, adults, and children of all ages, our house is very accessible to both summer hot spots and year-around Cape Cod staples. Nestled near the corner of Lower County Road, our home is conveniently situated between Allen Harbor and Wychmere Harbor and a very short walk from Wyndemere Bluffs Road Beach. Whether you and your family are looking to enjoy time on the beach, spend a day on the water, devour a cup of New England Clam Chowder, or take the kids to the Go Carts or saltwater fishing, options are right around the corner. In addition to its close proximity to the beach and harbor, our home is right down the street from local ice cream favorites (Dairy Queen and Sundae School), children's attractions (Go Carts, Bumper Boats, Batting Cages, Miniature Golf, Fishing), and dining favorites (The Port, Cape Sea Grille, Ember Pizza, Brax Landing). Furthermore, our house is a short ride to the Golf Course (Cranberry Valley, Captain's Course), gym (BodyStrong Fitness) and Cape Cod Baseball League action (Harwich Mariners). Finally, if you are looking to visit attractions across Cape Cod, our house is located in the Mid-Cape and less than 0.5 miles from the Mid-Cape Highway (Route 6), making it an easy ride to Cape Cod treasures such as the National Seashore, Pleasant Bay, Nickerson State Park, Cape Cod Bike Trail, Chatham, and Provincetown while the Freedom Ferry to Nantucket is just 0.5 miles down Route 28.
