About Joan O’Connell
My grandfather first purchased a house in this neighborhood in 1938 and my siblings and I grew up summering in Monument Beach.
Joan O’Connell purchased this House in 1976
Why Joan O’Connell chose Monument Beach
We love the quiet village of Monument Beach and have enjoyed so many family memories in this house. Our extended family makes every effort to spend at least some time here every year. We kayak, sail, play tennis and enjoy time chatting, reading, napping and watching sunsets from the porch.
What makes this House unique
Our favorite feature of the house would have to be the beautiful sunsets that light up the sky across the bay in front of the porch. If you have children they will enjoy the playground and the tennis courts adjacent to the house.
kids will love the park next door

Great location for the entire family. Enjoyed the trip. Playground next door is great for the kids.
Excellent Place to Stay!
Everything about our stay at this beautiful home was fantastic. It’s even more beautiful in person.
a truly beautiful home..This home has it all the gorgeous view, wrap around porch, fully stocked home! Family owned and operated so beginning to end was very easy. We didnt have good weather yet still enjoyed this home..I suggest this home for much needed family time, relaxation and Serenity...
Highly Recommended - Amazing Location!
We had an amazing time this past week in the cape. Despite the weather being a bit cool and some rain, the location was great and the house was a perfect home base. Having the beach steps from the door and a playground literally next door, our kids were never bored.
Blissful Place for Sisters' Reunion
Perfect cottage to share with sisters who live scattered across the US. Four bedrooms plus an upstairs bath/shower and downstairs shower made it comfortable for all. We lucked out with perfect sunny 70s weather in mid-September so made maximum use of the wrap-around porch...starting with coffee and watching the birds on the water at sunrise and sharing wine at dusk. Lots of living spaces downstairs so if you had a large family there are plenty of places to hang out. Large dining table for big group meal with window looking out on the bay. Had a clean, fresh beach cottage feel with all the the amenities (wifi was good). Plenty of kitchen ware and dishes so if you wanted to cook you could. (We enjoyed eating out and not cooking for a change. Brought in take-out lobster dinner one night though from the Lobster Trap.) Pleasant to walk in the neighborhood, stopping in for ice cream....Drove to Chatham for lunch and relaxed shopping one day, visited the Aptuxent historical museum and Sandwich, MA another day. Flew into Boston and drove down to get there, so access from all over the country for a short time together worked fine. I expect we'll return. We all loved it. It exceeded our expectations (which were high).

Perfect vacation spot for family. Everything was better than expected. Recommend highly. Host family were super.
