One well- behaved dog is welcome if the owner promises to clean up after the dog, inside and outside the house. No pets on furniture, please, inside or outside. We do not charge pet fee for one dog. Dogs only please.


Welcome to our retreat, in close walking proximity (0.3 mi) to one of the most beautiful and walkable beaches on the Cape, Craigville Beach. We are close to several other beaches, ferry to the Islands, restaurants, hiking, kayaking, biking trails, Melody tent and downtown Hyannis.

You’ll love this home because of the location and lots of natural light. If you want to stay in you can enjoy a private fenced backyard with fire pit, porch furniture and a hammock.

Feel free to use all spaces and items in the house and in the yard. For your after beach enjoyment, we have installed a new cedar outdoor shower. We have a large open common area with living room, kitchen, dining and sunroom where your family and friends can hang out together. This open area is cooled off by an conditioner so guests can stay in during those hot July and August afternoons. We have remote operated ceiling fans in three out of the four bedrooms (no a/c in the bedrooms). Our bedrooms are isolated from each other allowing guests for privacy. The backyard acts as an additional living room: it is fully fenced, it has a porch with furniture and umbrella, gas grill and fire pit area as well as a shady area under the grapevine. We hope you enjoy! All of it is close to the beach (0.3 miles to Cowell/Craigville beach area).

We will consider smaller and well behaved dog (one) if you promise to leave the house and the yard clean. No other pets please.

The house has a fully stocked kitchen with microwave, toaster, Keurig, blender, lobster pot etc. There is a brand new Weber gas grill on the porch.
We have 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms, all filled with lights coming from the skylights. The common area of the house has an open plan so you can enjoy hanging out with your rental party and kids. This is a single story house so makes it easy on small kids and elderly to join you without worries.

Linens are provided and include all bedding (blankets, sheets, pillowcases), bath towels and beach towels. We utilize professional cleaning crew that have been with us for over 5 years and follow COVID19-related cleaning protocols. We also provide beach chairs, umbrella and beach cart.
