About Danielle Rosales
I live in Quincy, Massachusetts, and work in Boston.
Danielle Rosales purchased this Cottage in 1992
Why Danielle Rosales chose South Wellfleet
I purchased this property with my now ex husband in 1992 and it became mine in the divorce. At the time it was one cottage community where we used to stay, that was renovated and sold as individual cottages. It is like a home away from home for me although I usually go down in spring and fall and save one summer week for myself. I like the quiet and old fashioned feel of the cottage and the view of the cove.

Just as advertised...
Great place to stay in upscale Wellfleet on the down low. The location is hard to beat - only steps down to the cove where you can take in beautiful sunset views and a walk (when the tide is not high), CCRT right there, short jaunt to the beach, and only minutes from Wellfleet restaurants and the pier.
Quaint, rustic charm
My husband and I, along with our dog absolutely adored our stay at this cottage. It was close to everything but yet the area was quiet. Wellfleet is a charming town with so much conservation land. There was a conservation trail with wonderful views of the cove to walk our dog on right in the complex. The weather was not always warm enough to sit on the deck to enjoy the cove view but we still had a wonderful view of the cove from the dining table. The cabin was clean, cozy, and had everything we needed. Being the end of September we had a few chilly nights but the space heaters provided were great to keep the cottage comfortable. My husband and I have no experience with gas stoves and inadvertently blew out the pilot lights to the range. Danielle was readily available and so kind and helpful when we called.
We spent most of our time at Lecount Hollow Beach (Maquires Landing) which was a less than five-minute drive. The beach was beautiful with very few people around. You can walk for miles and just enjoy the ocean, dunes, and watch the seals just off the shore. Such a relaxing time. We can't wait to go back!
Rustic is fine but this rental is not acceptable
I wish I had been forewarned about the bathroom. It smells so bad, I had to buy air freshener immediately. Didn’t do much. Overpowering and unpleasant. As for the rest, my husband and I could easily have adjusted to a mini-kitchen with no counter space; we could have survived with just a small sofa for sitting comfortably; we even could have survived the porto-potty style shower but...we left before our departure date. Don’t rent unless you have tolerance for bad smells. One other thing if you do decide to rent, this cottage/condo area is on a small road with no name, parallel to Route 6. Call Danielle and get specific directions before you go.
I am sorry you had a bad experience. My cottage is located on a tidal marsh which does emit an aroma at low tide, it doesn’t have anything to do with cleanliness. As for the size of my kitchen and bath, I try to provide descriptions on the web site. Also I keep my prices low for that reason, a larger and more luxurious accommodations will cost accordingly
Great location. Clean, rustic cottage close to the bike trail.
Thank you for sharing your home with us. We really enjoyed our stay. Nice quiet community.
Very clean. No bugs. Quiet. Many cabins are privately owned and occupied in the little village. close to beach (skip the $95 sticker for the car)...walking/biking distance. Very close to bike trail. Fully equipped/stocked kitchen (not food)...knives, tools, stove, Mr Coffee pot, toaster, etc. No microwave. BBQ grill is handy and clean. We like to replace paper goods as, apparently do others and host. Nicely decorated. Simple.
Close to Orleans for grocery/clothing shopping, Truro for wine tasting, chocolate, spices and interesting stationery; P-town for dining, shopping for fun, walking, people, Ferry to Boston. Many local restaurants in Wellflleet within a few close miles. Highly recommend Van Rensselaers (1Mile)
small, cozy, well-equipped, peaceful
We enjoyed our stay in the little saltbox cottage by the cove. The space is small but well equipped with a comfortable bed, a cute little porch/dining area and a tiny but very serviceable kitchen for visitors like us who prefer to eat in and experiment with great seafood recipes! It is difficult to find--don't trust Google maps--but Danielle was very accessible by phone and gave us good directions. And the little "neighborhood" of cottages is dog-friendly!! We would definitely stay again!
It is a short drive to beaches, restaurants, and Wellfleet center where there is a lovely marina where boats may be rented. Wellfleet also has a theater, shopping, art galleries, a golf course, and is near Provincetown. A good portion of Wellfleet is National Park.
