About the Property

4BR/2BA - Sleeps 9-11

Wonderful Osterville location with a private heated pool. This 4 bedroom, 2 full bath home is in pristine condition and has a wonderful open floor plan. Completely renovated in 2012. Our home has central a/c, a new, stylishly appointed kitchen with granite and stainless steel appliances, gleaming new hardwood floors, skylights, a fireplace and multiple, 3 separate living spaces perfect for families with children. The large, private backyard has a heated, in-ground, fenced-in swimming pool, brick patio with a new Weber gas grill, and outdoor shower. It is about a half mile to beautiful Dowses Beach and the warm waters of Nantucket Sound, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants of Osterville.

The first floor has two separate living spaces, including a large combination family room/dining room with new upholstered furniture, a large flat-screen HDTV, and large dining table that comfortably seats 6-8. The second living space is open to the new kitchen, and includes a fireplace, new upholstered furniture and seating for 10 at an over-sized breakfast bar and a custom built banquet. Also on the first floor are 2 bedrooms and a newly renovated full bath, including one with a king bed and another with a queen bed.

On the second floor are 2 additional bedrooms, a newly renovated full bath and another large family room, which includes a new sectional with a queen size pull-out sleeper. The bedrooms include one with three twin size beds (two twins and a roll away trundle) and another with a queen size bed.

The home offers 2 large HDTVs, a Bose Soundlink, WIFI, Cable with DVR service, 2 DVD players, and local phone service.

The house is very toddler-friendly, offering one full-size crib with crib sheets, one pack-n-play, one tension operated baby gate, one hand-held video monitor, various children's books and movies, and a booster seat.

Fresh linens are provided.

The large private yard has a heated, fenced-in, in-ground pool. The spacious brick patio has a Weber gas grill, a picnic table, and table and chairs for outdoor dining.

The 2-car attached garage has been converted into a well-equipped game room with an 8 foot pool table and an air hockey table for rainy day entertainment.

Other amenities we offer when you stay at our beautiful home:

Private Chef - We are affiliated with several wonderful private chefs and are happy to connect you with one of them who can prepare and serve meals for groups 2-20.

Mid-Rental Cleaning Services - Please inquire about mid-rental cleanings. We are happy to coordinate with the cleaning service for additional house-keeping throughout your stay so you can relax and enjoy your vacation.

Boats: Bring your own boat and park it in our side yard. You can launch from the public boat launches right in Osterville. We are also happy to arrange boat rentals with or without a captain during your stay.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Pool Heat - See Notes $0
  • CC Payment Fee-See Notes $0
  • Cleaning Fee - See Notes $250
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500

Notes:

Refundable Security = $1000 (instead of $500) for stays less than 7 nights and/or for groups younger than the minimum age of 30.

Cleaning Fees = High quality bed linens plus bath & pool towels are provided for your stay. We ask groups to wash/dry house & pool towels prior to exit. Bed linens are stripped/changed over by cleaners.

Pool Heat Fee (Optional) = $25/ Early Summer, High Season and Labor Day and $50/day other periods. If you are unsure about needing the pool heated, the determination can be made closer to your stay regarding whether to heat the pool. If the pool is heated, we can deduct the fee from your Security Deposit upon your departure. Pool is open May 1st through 3rd Weekend in September. Please inquire regarding availability of the pool in April and late September/October.

Credit Card Processing Fee = If paying via credit card, VRBO charges a 3% credit card processing fee. VRBO also applies an additional 1.5% to international CC bookings. These are additional to their "Service Fee". These fees go directly to VRBO (CC Processing Fees and Service Fee). To avoid CC Processing Fees, submit payment via E-Check instead of CC. VRBO's reservation system accepts E-Check payments in addition to CC payments and will walk you through the E-Check payment method once you click the "Book Now" link. E-Check is an EFT and is available as a payment option if your reservation is more than 10 days away. If you have questions - please ask us - we are happy to help:-)

SAVINGS!! Stay for 7 nights or longer during the 2 or 3 night minimum periods and pay the lower average nightly rate!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live outside of Boston with our two children. We love to travel, ski, surf and hang at the beach and pool. While incredibly busy as two full-time working parents, we try to enjoy our life to the fullest with as much vacation time as we can take!

Why the Owner Chose Osterville, Barnstable, MA, USA:
We chose Osterville because it is a short 1.5 hour drive from our primary home and Boston. We chose the Wianno area of Osterville because it is a short walk to either the beautiful village of Osterville or the warm waters of Dowses Beach. We love the expanded living space of our home so the entire extended family can relax together and not feel crowded. We chose this house specifically for the kid-friendly location on a quiet residential street and it's amazing back-yard. We wanted to be able to ride bikes around the circle and relax by the the heated pool after a day at the beach and also have room to BBQ, play yard games and throw a baseball. We love to entertain and this is the perfect home to do so.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Private heated swimming pool, Osterville, Dowses Beach, Craigville Beach, Joshua's Pond, Osterville, Pool Table, Air Hockey Table, large fenced in yard, Fancy's, Crisp, 3 living spaces
