My cozy 2-bedroom Victorian clapboard cottage is perfectly nestled in the heart of Shell Point, a five minute walk to the beach and Onset Village's shops, restaurants, and activities, and a 15-minute drive over the Bourne Bridge to Cape Cod.

The space

This home is a very well-preserved example of a classic Victorian Cottage. Updates have been made over the years, but the home still features original pine floors throughout, beadboard walls, and original exterior features, including a wide front porch with Adirondack rocking chairs. The interior was repainted and redecorated with all new furniture and mattresses in 2016. A brand new cedar outdoor shower (hot and cold water!) was installed in the spring of 2017.

Guest access

Guests will have access to the entire space.

Interaction with guests

I will be available by mobile phone, and I live about an hour away in Boston in case of any emergencies or lock-outs.

Other things to note

There is a queen bed in the larger bedroom and a trundle bed (that converts to two side-by-side twin beds) in the smaller bedroom.

We provide free WiFi and an iPad, and there is a flatscreen television in the house. We do not have cable TV, but we provide an HDMI cable to use with the iPad or your own device.

Guests are welcome to use any games, books and appliances, and there is a charcoal grill available for guest use.

Guests are not permitted to use the kayak, however kayak rentals are available at the town dock, which is within walking distance.

This house was perfect for our group of three and Chris was very easy to communicate with. It's in a great location if you are looking to stay in Onset (which is pretty sleepy in mid-September). Make sure to bring shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.

We had a great stay at Christopher's lovely place in Wareham. The spaces are just like the photos, with everything well appointed, everything you could need in the kitchen, great BBQ available outside. We were very comfortable, house and beach towels provided, place was very clean for us. The public beach is very close by and is a lovely beach, safe for swimming and big enough not to get crowded. Wareham itself is a lovely village/town with a few great casual food options. Christopher provides a very handy set of suggestions for local recommendations for both eating/drinking and also activities etc. Christopher was very helpful with any questions and incredibly accommodating for a late check-out which really helped us out. We'd definitely stay again next time we are nearby!

The property was fantastic for our stay in Onset. We are a family of 4 with two children aged 11 and 13. It is as lovely as it looks in the pictures! Chris was at the property to meet us just after we arrived and he is a really nice chap. Kitchen was well equipped especially with a large washer and a dryer. Sitting room was fine. No cable TV but this was not a problem. If you did want to watch something then there is an iPad linked up to the TV. Broadband is fine and pumps out around 50 megabits. Upstairs the main bedroom is excellent - firm bed and lots of storage space. The second bedroom where our kids is a walk through and there is actually a gap in the wall between the two rooms. The bathroom is downstairs which was a little annoying if you need to pop to the loo in the middle of the night. Traditionally furnished and perfectly fine. Our favourite part of the property was the outdoor shower. This was great and we all used this through out the week. Shed at the back with beach chairs and umbrella which were very useful. Onset itself is a brilliant little place. The beach is exceptional and the just a short walk from the property. Quite a few places to eat and our favourite was Mark Anthony for pizza and beers. Overall a great place to stay which I would highly recommend.

A great place that was all we hoped for as first time visitors to USA. All mod cons inside an authentic beach house. It was 75 deg when we stayed and the air con/ fans were more than enough. Onset is a small friendly town where you can get all you need and the beach is great and only a 2 min walk. lots to see and do on the Cape for days away from the beach. Thanks Chris for a great place to stay.

Christopher's cozy beach cottage was perfect, and impeccably decorated! It's a great spot for a couple, or a family with small children, as the two bedrooms upstairs are fairly close together. It's extremely walkable to the beach or any restaurant or coffee shop in town, and an easy drive to larger grocery stores if needed. We enjoyed our stay, and will definitely be back again soon!
