Overview

One-of-a-kind Barnstable three bedroom home which you will not experience oceanfront living anywhere else like this! It is set out beyond all other houses which provide UNBEATABLE sunrises and sunsets, as well as incredible views of Barnstable Harbor to Sandy Neck. The house is practically one with the ocean with EVERY room having oceanfront views. No need to even move out of the house to see and be part of ocean life -- you're simply part of it inside the home. It's all-access ocean 24/7.

Witness the most beautiful sunrises! Not an early bird? No worries! There's no need to move or completely wake-up or go outside to see them. Just stay in your bed, peek open your eyes, and watch the stunning sunrises. Or head out to the upper or lower balcony, or sit comfortably in the front yard with a coffee and be stunned by the view. Just watch the sunrise and roll back over and finish your restful sleep. But fair warning: you won't want to because there's too much to do!

Miss the sunrise, no worries! Just look to the West and watch the most moving sunsets during the evening. Again, you can view it while in the house or outside in our cozy Adirondack chairs. Don't forget your favorite beverage!

Take a leisurely walk to Barnstable Village to dine or shop at the many restaurants, antique shops, comedy club (theater), village market, ice cream shop, Day Spa, and library (oldest in the country). Take a walk or trolley ride to Mill Way Beach/Barnstable Harbor, go deep-sea fishing, high-speed rib touring, learn about the area on an eco-tour, go whale watching, dining on the harbor, or simply just be at the house and absorb the views and ocean breezes.

The house is located in a very desirable, sought-after area (where the ocean meets land) of a beautiful and VERY QUIET multi-million dollar neighborhood. In addition to our beautiful Barnstable Village, the house is located just minutes drive/trolley to downtown Main St. Hyannis shops, too many restaurants to mention, Barnstable Airport to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard, Hyannis Golf Club, Cape Cod Melody Tent to see great entertainment ( the Kennedy Museum, and ferries to Nantucket or Martha Vineyard. Relax, enjoy a BBQ, take a hot outdoor shower, and enjoy the sea breezes.

Don't Pack Anything! We've provided everything for you so you don't have to bring it. We provided big fluffy beach towels, high-quality linens, bath towels, beach towels, and beach chairs. We've provided all the information for bike rentals, kayak rentals, fishing rentals, and what else to do in the area.

Beach Pass:
A beach pass is included and allows unlimited free access for one car to all Town of Barnstable public and resident-only beaches, including Sandy Neck, Craigville Beach, Veterans Beach, Kalmus Beach, Sea Street Beach, Dowses Beach, Millway Beach, Loop Beach, Covell Beach, Hathaway's Pond, Hamblin's Pond, Lovell's Pond, Waquaquet Lake, Joshua's Pond, and Eugenia Fortes Beach. That's an additional 15 Cape Cod beaches you have complete and free access!

Adventure-Seekers:
Perhaps try something new like ocean kayaking where you can schedule a 1 or 2 person (or more) kayak at the beach house for the week, complete with life vests, instruction, and delivery/pick-up. The immediate area is written in many guidebooks as an oasis for ocean kayaking! Kayak over to sandbars as they await at low tide and become your stunning private oasis. A ''must-do'' is the large high-speed jet-propelled whale watch yacht docked at Barnstable Harbor. The whales are amazing and always there! Guests also rave about the Barnstable Harbor Ecotour available from Barnstable Harbor. If you like speed and ocean, head over to Cape Rib Tour that brings guests on speed-focused 2 1/2-hour Whale Watch tour from Barnstable Harbor or a 1-hour speed ride from Barnstable Harbor through the Cape Cod Canal.

If you windsurf or sail, bring those too! You can easily haul a 420 onto the yard for safekeeping -- and windsurfers will find it an easy step on and off.

Children:
This house is great for children! The small yard is perfect for children to keep themselves busy. The private ocean beach directly in front of our house will keep any child busy for hours with its endless collection of shells and ocean-life. We supply the beach chairs for you!

Carless:
If you want to go on vacation and never touch your car during your stay, this is the spot for you. Between the walking distance nearby restaurants, Barnstable Market, beaches, whale watching, antiquing, and trolley -- you'll never have to get into your car until it's time to go home! Which, of course, you won't want to do when you see the view we have for you!

Foodies:
Come have a busy day swimming, clamming, fishing, whale watching, biking, shopping, etc. and then end the day with a walk to one of our nearby restaurants. That's right, you can WALK to these restaurants! You can dine at the Barnstable Restaurant and Tavern ( or The Dolphin Restaurant ( or Mattakeese Wharf Restaurant ( and a leisurely walk on home via moonlight. Don't forget Smitty's Ice Cream ( right in the village!

Fish and catch your stripers for dinner!
Cast your line in front of the house rent your gear nearby and catch some striped bass for dinner! You'll have company early morning and evening as fisherman-in-the-know often stand nearby and/or float on by in boats to catch the fish. Many times you'll even witness them "jumping" from the water. Nearby Barnstable Marine sells bait and lets you know what the fishies are biting on.

Come stay and have a great time!

FAQ: Beach Just Steps Away
What's the beach in front like?
The beach in front is a mixture of sand, shell, and rock. It's not a sandy beach that you dig your toes into.

Do you swim at the beach?
Yes, we all swim here. The best time to swim is at high tide. The tides change every 6 hours. You will see two tides (high/low or low/high every 12 hours.

Can you swim at low tide?
Yes, you can but it's not my preference. I prefer at low tide to take a kayak (rental information provided) and head out to the sandbars that occur out front. Or, do something else (like hangout in the yard, walk the beach, etc.) and wait for high tide. I also include a beach pass that allows you entry into all the area beaches.

Is the view obstructed?
No, it is an unobstructed waterfront view. Enjoy and be amazed!

Can I bring more than two cars?
Unfortunately, no. Because we are very close to the ocean, our parking is limited to 2 cars.

Host

After spending nearly every summer of my life on the Cape in Barnstable, my husband and I were fortunate to purchase locally in 2002. We purchased this house in 2018 from the most wonderful and warm friends and neighbors. It's with joy that we share our Cape Cod experience with you.

We are nearby and are available for you during your stay.
