About Maria Papa

As your hosts, we appreciate the fact that this vacation is important to you and your family. That's why we have thought of every possible detail while renovating and furnishing this property to make your Cape Cod vacation an enjoyable one. We take pride in the integrity of our properties, their furnishings, and maintenance. Whether you stay in one of our Cape Cod beach houses, Adirondack rustic cabin, or Midtown Manhattan condo, charm, cleanliness, and attention to detail are evident everywhere. All that's left to you is to arrive, relax, and enjoy!

Why Maria Papa chose Centerville

The warm waters of Craigville Beach on the Nantucket Sound are second to none on Cape Cod. After a day at the beach, enjoy the best homemade ice cream in the world at Four Seas in Centerville -- just a short walk up the street. Fishing and Blue Crabbing is also plentiful in the Centerville River. Bring your kayak and launch from the public Way to Water on the Centerville River just two doors down form this property, or fish from the crabbing bridge, again, just a few steps away.

Enjoy historic Centerville for a real, old-fashioned Cape Cod vacation while having all of the restaurants and shops of downtown Hyannis just a short few minutes drive away.

Hyannis Harbor is less than 3 and half miles away. Here you can catch a ferry boat to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket Island for a day of exploring or bike riding. Cycling enthusiasts won’t want to miss a day cycling the peaceful and quaint Nantucket Island. Just grab your lunch in a day pack and cycle through the lovely streets of Hyannis Port to Hyannis Harbor to board you and your bike on the Nantucket Ferry. And don’t forget that Cape Cod offers the quintessential mini-golf experience. We’ve played all over The Cape, and our favorites are Pirates Cove and Skull Island, both located a short distance away on Rt. 28. But please don’t feel like you need to remember any of this. As your hosts, we provide plenty of advice before your trip as to our favorite places to buy the freshest seafood, whale watch, deep sea fish, or just enjoy a nice seafood dinner like a local.

What makes this house unique

This property is lovingly professionally decorated and pristine. It provides a luxuriously comfortable vacation stay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Even though it rained for the majority of our stay. It was a peaceful and relaxing time for my family of 4 to all be together in this beautiful house by the water. The homeowners provided suggestions to their favorite restaurants and we certainly did take advantage of that list. We appreciated these tried and true eateries which were all truly exceptional. Between the board games in the house, ladder ball on the back lawn, kayaking on the inlet, and the kids hooking up their computers to the enormous smart tv in the living room so we could have family film nights, our time spent together in your home has been perhaps one of most memorable family vacations.

Great vacation / house / location - 3rd year in a row

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our yearly vacation in Cape Cod and we have stayed at this house now for the third time. It was a great week, the weather was spectacular and staying at a house that is so centrally located to downtown Hyannis, the ferries to Martha Vineyard and Nantucket, and 1 block walk to Centerville Beach (the best beach on Cape Cod btw) made the stay fantastic - again. We love the house layout having a full master suite upstairs in addition to a second one downstairs which makes for plenty of room for the entire family. The owners keep upgrading the house with new appliances, upgraded TV's, new grill, and full compliment of pots, pans, and utensils, in addition to keeping it meticulously maintained and extremely responsive. This has become a yearly tradition for my family and we look forward to coming back again and enjoying the Cape and staying at this house.

Great location - great house

  • 5 of 5

Our yearly vacation was once again a great success and we even had Indian summer and summer like weather to boot. The house is in a great location easy to get anywhere on the Cape and 1 block from the best beach - Craigville Beach. The house is very well equipped and maintained with everything you need included. The house has plenty of room and having the seperate Master Suite upstairs with ocean views and your own balcony is like having a getaway within the house. We will be back again next year.

Great Beach House with amazing views

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay and found the set up of the house extremely user friendly. Maria was great when we needed to reach out with any questions. Our only issue was that the house didn't come with a beach pass and for us (with young kids) we really needed to utilize other beaches and ponds besides the one you can walk to from the house. We enjoyed the lovely views and sunset each night. We would highly recommend this lovely beach house!

Just right in every way

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 7 enjoyed our vacation on the Cape and in this home. The short walk to the beach was great for the children. We found plenty of beach towels and bathroom towels. The kitchen is well stocked. The chairs are comfortable and so are the beds. All of the little details made our stay enjoyable and easy. The home is conveniently located so we explored the beaches on the bay as well as Nantucket Sound. This house is charming and bright and just as presented on the website. We would love to return next year.

Nice house near water and quick walk to Craigville beach

  • 4 of 5

We found the house great for 2 families, and in a fantastic location. Plenty of space, 4 showers (including the outdoor shower), and nice deck overlooking the inlet and wooded area. We'll stocked kitchen, and shed full of every beach item you'd need. Quiet are, seems to be the only rental on the street, and neighbors were friendly. Note that the house has A/C but they are wall and window units. The only issues we had with our stay were on day 1 - we were given the wrong lockbox code to gain access to the house key, there was only 1 key available, and the house had not been cleaned when we arrived at 3pm. Owner was accessable and resolved most issues quickly. Overall I would recommend this rental house.

Perfect family weekend

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time back and quite honestly see it being a family tradition for years to come. The house was very clean and stocked with just about everything we could have needed. It has such a cozy feel and the light shines through all day long. The proximity to the beach and towns is major bonus.
