Our family home divided as a duplex. We live on a pristine tidal river that runs into Waquoit Bay. We have a private beach area, six kayaks and paddleboard ready-to-go into miles of protected waterways. ***New for 2017: Added two Riot Quest 10HV kayaks with dry bulkhead storage. 3 BR, 2 baths, laundry, Internet, kitchen all yours! We prefer weekly rentals unless a period is still available less than one month ahead. We find that guests who have time to enjoy the water setting are happier!
There is room for eight people in five single beds and two queen beds in three true bedrooms, with two full bathrooms. We also have two portable cribs. This is a quiet location with great access to pristine waterways, salt marshes and sand. South Cape Beach State Park is nearby with ocean exposure. Two videos and additional guest reviews are available at Vacation Rental By Owner website property 373547. PLEASE NOTE: During summer season we prefer one-week rentals, up until one-month in advance when we accept shorter stays.
You have the entire "7B" side of the duplex, ample parking, six kayaks, one paddleboard, library with local natural history, games, kids toys, Internet, HDTV with Comcast cable, land-line phone with unlimited US calling are entirely yours. No cats are possible, other pets only as allowed. Pet fee will be added.
Interaction with guests
You are in your own independent space. We are usually next door and guests find that a plus. See our reviews. We are happy to share some time if it works or offer ideas on great things to do in the area.
Other things to note
If your group is here to attend a wedding in the area or intends to otherwise meet up with others, PLEASE NOTE that in those situations some of our guests have invited many additional people to come over and enjoy the waterfront. The resultant group can easily get too large and some additional visitors then spend the night here. We cannot support large parties or additional overnight guests.
LOWER RATES are available in the off-season, after Labor Day and before Memorial Day. Generally, we start out by only accepting weekly rentals for the Summer. If a period is still available 30 days prior to occupancy we will then take shorter rentals in the Summer. An outdoor gas grill, small furnished patio, outdoor shower, and six one-man kayaks are available with paddles and PFDs. One of Cape Cod's best wind-surfing areas is a short paddle or car trip away at the south edge of Waquoit Bay.
No pets unless arranged. No smoking within 20 feet of the premises. All kayak users must sign a waiver. No children on the dock without life vests. Wash water gear with supplied hose water. We will not rent to vacationing students or singles under 25 years of age unless accompanied by an adult guardian or parent.
I have recently retired, though I don't like the "R" word. We are now living on Cape Cod in Massachusetts and need to rent half the place to help pay the taxes. It's a great location! I will also want to travel at times, often with my wife, to visit friends or family, or do history and ancestry type of research in libraries, graveyards and such. Music, history and meaningful conversation interest me if people are up for it. My wife is allergic to cats and she likes a big bed. So I'll usually look for a king bed or two beds! Call me up for a chat if you wish.
