About the Property
3 bedroom, 1 bathroom, and outdoor shower, with a very large screened-in porch.
The town's deep water dock is 5 minutes away and the neighborhood also has a boat landing/picnic area with a small beach, where you can launch a kayak, or take children to play on the swings while you sit and unpack lunch on the picnic tables. It's a great place to go for a stroll, as you can enjoy the water view from Adirondack chairs on the beach, watch boats swinging on moorings, in front of grey-shingled cottages with red, white & blue flags flapping in the breeze.
The cottage sleeps 6, with one bathroom & an enclosed outdoor shower. The bedrooms are air-conditioned, and if it is especially hot, the AC is sufficient to cool the entire cottage. A large screened-in porch gets plenty of fresh Cape air, without the bugs. Great by day, but also wonderful for reading or relaxing at night.
The living room has a large flat-screen TV which is great for watching the Red Sox games all summer. The kitchen is well-equipped, you'll find everything you need, including the lobster pot.
Drive 10mins. to Popponesset Marketplace, and enjoy the outdoor cafés, galleries, miniature golf, outdoor concerts and ice cream shops, and don't forget to try the 'Cape's best' lobster roll at the Raw Bar.
If you enjoy biking, don't miss the Shining Sea bike trail which begins in North Falmouth and wends its way past cranberry bogs, and Chapaquoit Beach. Bike 10.7 mi. to scenic Woods Hole and enjoy lunch.
Or pick up your clubs and play golf at one of the nearby courses.
For grilling aficionados there is both a charcoal and gas grill, and an outdoor table & chairs.
Mashpee Commons is 10 mins. by car, and is terrific for casual restaurants like Bobby Byrnes, or fine dining like Bleu. In addition there is a cinema, outdoor films, and upmarket non-touristy shops. Roche Bros. or Stop 'n' Shop are the nearby supermarkets. Outdoor concerts are held at Mashpee Commons, bring a picnic and the beach chairs!
For a quintessential Cape experience, you cannot do better than this central (but off the tourist track) location.

We are just next to New Seabury & Popponesset...so go for a sunset cocktail to Popponesset Inn, or have a lobster roll & chowder at the Raw Bar, followed by an ice cream at Popponesset Marketplace.
Year Purchased: 1977
About the owner: Having grown up in Boston, my sisters and I enjoyed summers on the Cape, and the nice family-oriented neighborhood we are in. Being away from the traffic and hustle and bustle of the tourist-packed beaches, we enjoy the simplicity of 'old-fashioned' Cape summers, with no honky tonk town or fast food eateries. We prefer the simplicity of a bowl of chowder or a lobster roll, or grilling in the back yard. We look forward to coming every summer, to drink in the short but sweet New England summer.
Why the Owner Chose Monomoscoy Island, Mashpee, MA, USA:
The best thing about this cottage is its proximity to the beach (walk with the beach wagon holding your gear), and the location of Mashpee itself. From here you can visit Cape Cod villages, bike the Shining Sea Trail, catch the high speed ferry from Hyannis to nantucket for the go to Woods Hole for lunch, or to take your bike or car over to Martha's Vineyard. Drive scenic 6A to Chatham, meandering thru charming old villages, or go to Osterville or Mashpee Commons to shop & eat. Popponesset and NewSeabury is just next the kids, and enjoy a lobster roll at the raw bar, followed by an ice cream.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
A quiet tree-lined street, safe for kids, relaxing for adults, and close to the beach. It is not touristy - it is really all locals who have been coming for years. The yard is private enough - you are not 'on top' of the neighbors'. And those you do meet, you will find are super friendly and welcoming. The porch is great for relaxing day or night, and great for grandparents who don't want to go to the beach, but want to enjoy the fresh air.
