The Idle Wave is a 1940’s beach bungalow filled with classic Cape Cod cottage charm. Rich wood built-ins, comfortable interiors made for lounging and relaxing, and plenty of space to have fun under the sun. Enjoy a glass while watching the beautiful sunsets over Cape Cod bay from famous Campground Beach. Take your shoes off and make yourself at home because being comfortable and relaxed is what it is all about at The Idle Wave.

The space
Let's take a step back in time to 1940 when a group of friends purchased a bunch of land and built bungalows all next to each other in order to spend their summers together with their families on the beaches of Cape Cod. Years passed, families grew up and left for other places. Houses were sold, new faces moved in. But one family and their bungalow remained. The Idle Wave. The lustrous wood of the built-in closets, cabinetry, and cubbies still gleam with polish. The drawers built into the walls still have a sheen to them. From the tide clocks to tell us when to go clamming, to the Captains wheel light in the sweet kitchen, the bungalow makes everything feel more simple, easy, and family centered.
Wake up to the sound of seagulls overhead and take your coffee out to the large front yard and relax in one of the Adirondack chairs while the kids gather around the table for their breakfast. Just fill the provided picnic basket with snacks for the day and walk to the end of the driveway where you will find the staircase to take you down to Campground Beach. Spend the day splashing in the waves, take the canoe out, float on a raft or two, try wave skimming or boogie boarding all of which are at your disposal. Don't worry, the house is only around 100 steps away so you can come and go as you please. When you are done in the sun, step into an oversized outdoor shower to wash the salt off. Dinner on the grill couldn't be easier with a Weber gas grill. Let the kids play with all of the toys in the large toy box while you cook dinner. When dinner is ready, eat outside in your own private “beach yard”, or take it down to the public beach and watch the waves! Enjoy s’mores over a campfire in the fire pit in your private front beach sand yard.
After tucking the kids in bed, the front porch is a great place to relax with a fireplace heater for chilly nights (or ambiance), adorable LED lights for indoor starlight, and a Bose sound system to plug your iPhone into for background music. The chairs have pull out foot rests to add to the comfort level. The first floor bedroom has a double nestled in beautiful wood built-ins complete with custom nooks on each side of the bed for your beverage or reading material. There is also a wall hung tv and books for relaxing. The second floor holds two more bedrooms. The queen bedroom has the old bungalow fashion drawers built into the wall and ample closet space. There is a large tv for viewing as well. The twin bedroom has ample closets and built in cubbies in the walls which are great for keeping treasures.
As soon as you walk through the door you feel at home. The Idle Wave is where you kick off your shoes, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, and breathe in the salty Cape air. Relax.
Our Campground Beach bungalow is the perfect place to create memories that will last a lifetime. We would love to share all that Cape Cod has to offer, so please don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have!
• From July 3rd to August 20th this is a Saturday to Saturday rental. No minimum stay requirements outside of those dates.
• We will continue with the practice of not providing linens in the property as this is a safer and more hygienic approach, but we do offer lower-than-market linen packages with free bed making services included.
All of our linens are crisp, clean, and soft. Our Turkish towels are thick, and plush. Our duvets are soft and all-season. Everything is high quality – not cheap and threadbare. Everything is washed at the highest temperature setting with bleach and oxygen-based cleaners. We take pride in what we do and it shows. Our guest reviews about our linens say it all! We offer two linen packages to which you can add additional linens (such as additional towel sets, etc) a la carte.
Package A (for 2) $80:
• Queen bed sheet set
• Queen all-season duvet
• Two towel sets (bath towel, hand towel, face cloth)
• Two beach towels
• Bed making FREE
Package B (for 6) $275:
• Queen bed sheets
• Full bed sheets
• Two single bed sheet sets
• Four all season duvets
• Six towel sets (bath towel, hand towel, face cloth)
• Six beach towels
• Bed making FREE
Of course, you still have the option of bringing your own linens as well, but why? No need to lug boxes of sheets, towels and blankets along when it can all be there, made up, and waiting for you for less than the cost of a lobster dinner!
• We are located on the bay side with windows throughout and a/c units for those extra hot days
• 1 Queen, 1 Double, 2 Twins
• An award winning, custom, state-of-the-art house guide with recommendations is provided for your visit.

Our cleaning teams use thorough checklists, followed by sanitization and disinfection of high touch points throughout the home. We follow CDC guidelines and use only approved EPA products for cleaning.

Guest access
The entire wooded area and path leading to the street is part of space too! Beautiful birds sing in the trees and colorful foliage line the walkway.

Other things to note
There is lots of parking! Please park at the top of the drive and to the right hand side, being sure not to block the neighbors access to his own driveway since we share the driveway.

The bungalow is literally steps away from the stairs that lead down to Campground beach. You can run to the house to refill your drink and the ice cubes wouldn't even have time to melt. A great little family run store with ice cream is just down the street, and of course, being in Eastham is the best part of a Cape Cod summer.
