About The Papallo Family

We (Dave and Marian Papallo) are both from Connecticut and have been coming to Cape Cod for over 60 years. We love it here so much, we even spent our honeymoon on the Cape Cod beaches! We have been married for over 52 years and have five children and twelve grandchildren. We love spending time in our cottage (Unit #11) and take pride in the cottages we rent (#9 and #10). Our children now assist us in the mangagement of the property and we plan on keeping the property in the family for many generations to come!

The Papallo Family purchased this cottage in 1986

Why The Papallo Family chose West Dennis

We bought this property because we loved the area and all it offered for our family of seven. We rented Unit #10 for several years before the previous owner put it up for sale. We are so happy we purchased this because our five children loved it so much and now our 12 grandchildren are making new memories here! Additionally, the two cottages can be rented independently or can be rented together to form one larger rental (for a larger family or two families). Each living room has a door that can be opened which would allow the living rooms to be joined and closed when privacy is sought. It's perfect for a large family or two families vacationing together!

What makes this cottage unique

West Dennis beach is on the ocean side and the snack bar, bathrooms, showers and swings are on the end of the beach where our cottages are located. With the ocean just a short distance in front of the cottages and the salt water inlet right behind them, we loved the cross-breeze that comes through the cottages (hence the name Crosswinds).

Cottage with great views and by the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at this property. It is in a very scenic location with the sandy beach on your doorstep. We enjoyed using the BBQ and the big outside table with a beautiful view over a nature reserve at the back, we saw rabbits and lots of birds. The cottage was just the right size for the five of us. Thank you to the Pappillo family!

Crosswinds was clean, comfortable, affordable. Perfect place for our family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Crosswinds Cottages was the perfect place for our family vacation in July. The cottages were clean, comfortable and offered all that we needed for our indoor and outdoor gatherings. Because of our proximity to a lovely ocean front beach, we were able to walk there at any time of the day. We were also close to ice cream shops, restaurants and activities such as mini-golf. I would happily return to Crosswinds in Dennis in the future. The owners were gracious and accommodating.

Very clean, amazing access to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at crosswinds! We have a 1 and 3 year old, they had a blast at the beach, and we were able to make multiple trips a day due to being so close! The only things holding me back from five stars and I hate to even say them because we had so much fun would be the lack of shade in the backyard for the kids and my husband is ober 6 ft so the full bed for the two of us was a little tight. Otherwise this was perfect location! The Papallo family was there when we arrived and helped us right away! They were even very helpful when trying to make a week work to book both cottages so our friends could stay next door with their kids! Thank you so much!

Fantastic weekend with friends in the cutest cottages

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend celebrating a friends wedding at the cottages right across the street from the reception hall. The cottage was just perfect and in the best location. They were exactly what we wanted. Very clean with all amenities needed for our stay. The whole rental process was seamless too. Definetly would rent again.

Cozy and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family only stayed over Labor Day weekend, but we wish we had more time. Cottage was clean and cozy. We had our meals on the outside patio, great view and so relaxing. Beach was a short walk down the road. Restaurants and shopping only a short drive away.
