About Terry

I may be a wash-a-shore to Cape Cod natives, having moved to the cape in 2011, but feel more at home here than any of the many places east of the Mississippi that I have lived. I love the colors of the cape as the sun glows during its rise and set over Lewis beach and Snow Creek. An amatuer photographer, there is always something to catch my eye. And no matter where I travel with my consulting business, I find a place of peace as I cross the Sagamore bridge and claim the wonder of the cape.

Terry purchased this condo in 2014

Why Terry chose Hyannis

There is nothing like falling asleep to the rhythmic sound of breaking waves and waking to songbirds calling to the rising sun. I particularly enjoy having my morning coffee on the deck offers while watching the pair of osprey that made their nest on a pole between Snow Creek and the entrance to Kalmus beach.

What makes this condo unique

The condo is .5 miles to the Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard ferries and 1 mile to Hyannis Marina, the artists' shanties, and Hyannis' Main Streets which offers every imaginable type of food, craft, and shopping along with the JKF Museum and the Cape Cod Baseball Museum. Beach-comers may prefer the ~ 1 mile loop from the retreat that provides views of wind surfers and parasailers on Kalmus beach, piping plovers hatchlings on the protected sand dunes, people fishing from the rock jetty, ferries entering and leaving Lewis Bay, the Hyannis Yacht Club and the Yachtman Condos, picnikers at Veterans' Memorial Park and the JFK Memorial, and homes along Ocean Street. As the 'big city' on the cape, Hyannis is home to the Cape Cod Mall, Wholefoods, Trader Joe's, Starbucks, and other major retail outlets. It also provides easy access to the rail trails in Falmouth and Brewster, festivals like the Bourne Scallop Festival and Wellfleet Oyster Festival, the King's Highway (Route 6A) art galleries and antique outlets, along with other family activities.

Can't beat the location and view

  • 4 of 5

Listening to the waves crash while I slept was pure bliss. My entire family drank up the breathtaking views. This condo has its own path to the beach and is super convenient to the harbor and downtown. The condo is homey and clean and has a beach cottage feel I loved. The only reason I don't give it five stars is because I think a few minor updates would go a really long way (e.g., a new queen mattress and pillows and a washer/dryer).

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Great spot in a great location!

Beautiful unit right on the beach. Short distance to downtown and the harbor.

Enjoyed sitting on the porch each morning with a fresh, hot cup of coffee.

Owner and Manager were helpful with any issues.
