About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 10

Large, modern 4 bedroom, 2 full bath rental. Large kitchen with a breakfast bar, room to seat 3. Living room has 2 couches (sectional) with TV/DVD. The sunroom serves as a second TV/DVD room (also has foosball table) and has a full size pull-out couch. There is a separate dining area with 8 chairs. Very private & quiet house located down a private road away from the main road. The rental is the first floor of the house only. The backyard is surrounded on three sides by the Rachel Carson Nature Preserve. The private deck and sunroom afford an expansive view overlooking the marsh. For those that do not know Drakes Island, it is a great family location with only residential properties and a long sandy beach. An easy 5 minute walk to the beach means less hassle and lots of choices that do not require a car.

The Drakes Island clubhouse, playground and tennis courts offer many organized activities for kids of all ages.

Visitor Memberships may be obtained by tenants who are renting a Drakes Island property. The price of the membership is VERY reasonable (in 2014 a family membership is $30 for one week or $40 for 2 weeks) This membership carries the same privileges as a permanent resident membership and allows you to reserve the tennis courts and have your kids participate in the Kids Day Camps. Please go to the Drakes Island Association website at DIIA.org for details and membership forms. There is an additional small fee for using the tennis courts.

Bring your bikes to ride along the quiet residential streets. A permanent land bridge from Drakes Island makes for easy access to shopping, restaurants, and movies.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My father's family started coming to Drakes Island in 1913 & fell in love with it. So far, 5 generations of our family have come every summer since then. No matter how far away parts of our family have moved, we all come 'home' every summer to center ourselves.
