About Sandra Melin

Four generations of our family have enjoyed summers & autumns & holidays at this great beach house. We have been visiting the Cape since 1955.

Sandra Melin purchased this house in 1977

Why Sandra Melin chose Dennis

This home was chosen because of its close proximity to the beach, nearby marina facilites, Cape Playhouse and prime fishing grounds within sight of the house!

What makes this house unique

Just steps from the house, there is an unobstructed expanse of beach about three miles long available for exploring, walks, and never ending opportunities for children to play in the water and sand. At high tide the water will come up to the wall and at low will provide a play ground hundreds of yards wide. At low tide, the smooth sand bars provide areas for kite flying, Bocce (provided in the hall closet) and an endless number of other outdoor games and activities.

Because we are located in the Historic District, we can enjoy walks and bike rides on quiet streets in neighborhoods where revolutionary era homes are scattered among newer ones. Close by are The Dennis Public Market, Post Office, Showtime Pizza, The Cape Playhouse Theatre, Art Gallery & Cinema.

A children's playground and homemade ice cream are just a short walk or ride away.

Our adjacent beach is excellent for long walks in either direction with a gradual drop off which is perfect for children.

The view of the bay is phenomenal. Every day is different. An in ground pool and beach just 50 steps away can't be beat.

All that AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a premium, upscale Cape Cod rental on the beautiful bay side. THIS is it. Look no further. Worth every penny. Pure heaven, vacation bliss. Ocean, pool, everything was meticulous. Everything. Sandy was fabulous. She delivered on EVERYTHING. The home was amazing. AMAZING. Speechless. Can't wait to go back. We only wish we had done this sooner. Simply the best.

Perfect Cape Cod Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I have had the pleasure of staying here on multiple occasions and must say it is my absolute favorite place on the Cape. The description and pictures are accurate and the place is well kept. The bedrooms are all nice sizes most with great views. The living room looks out into the spacious fenced in yard and opens with sliding glass doors. There is also a nice sun room overlooking the in ground pool. The private beach is perfect for renters of all types especially those that love to swim or relax by the ocean. It is located in a quiet neighborhood so it is very relaxing and a great place to unwind from the grind of life. There is a grocery store within walking distance and many restaurants to try. The added bonus is the most beautiful sunsets on every night that I have stayed! I would definitely recommend staying here and plan to myself!
