Somewhere in the world, there’s a place where stress isn't allowed and peace, serenity and genuine relaxation are the only demands of the day. If you could go there, you would thoroughly enjoy yourself. And when your time there was over, you’d want to stay longer. And when life finally did tear you away, coming back next it’d be a foregone conclusion.

There are not too many places in the world like this is one of them. It’s luxurious. It’s so close to the beach you can taste the salt.

Welcome to the Salty Shack.

The Salty Shack is a 4 bedroom luxury house located just a short 10 minute walk from world famous Main Street Hyannis (shoppers paradise). Nestled on Sea Street Hyannis just a 5 minute walk to Sea Street Beach and the aquamarine water, the Salty Shack offers some the finest accommodations in Cape Cod for those seeking a vacation of elegance, beaches, shopping and action.

Fourth of July!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with the Salty Shack. Our group was a group of 10 young adults, looking to get away for the fourth of July weekend for a nice relaxing time. We all fit very comfortably, beached it everyday, and were within walking distance to main street to enjoy restaurants and the night life. We cooked out on the grill a lot, Steve provided us with plenty of propane. The washer and dryers were key! The house is not even 5 minutes from the beach walking, air conditioners in every room, and 2 spots for parking. The neighbors next door were all very friendly and let us park our extra vehicles on the street in front of their home. We cannot wait to book our next trip! In fact, thanks to the Salty Shack, we are planning on making this an annual vacation! Thank you so much for everything!

Exactly as portrayed-excellent location-very cozy and up to date

  • 4 of 5

We had a great family vacation at the Salty Shack! Check in and out was super easy and we found the home in the exact condition we were expecting based on the pictures. We could not have asked for a better location... Close to everything!

The home is well equipped as far as kitchen gadgets, general cleaning products and all necessary linens and towels.

Lovely house, convenient to sailing, beaches, Main St, and the harbour.

  • 5 of 5

The Salty Shack was perfect for our stay in Hyannis-- close to Hyannis Yacht Club where our teenagers were sailing, and also close to Main St, the Harbour and beaches. The house had plenty of space for our two families to share, loads of linens and towels, and a well stocked kitchen for cooking (and grilling) our own meals. The outdoor shower and deck were great for rinsing off salty, sandy boys and sailing gear, and we were grateful for the washer and dryer! Thanks for accommodating us, even though we booked at the last minute. We enjoyed our stay!

Excellent, as expected

  • 5 of 5

The property met our expectations and fully matched the description both in terms of the building itself and its surroundings (we've unfortunately learned from other subsequent experiences that this is not something that should be taken for granted with Homeaway).

It is a free-standing house, part of a condo complex, which is clean and very well maintained.

It is very conveniently positioned for Hyannis' many attractions.

The property manager (Todd) was very helpful and knowledgeable.

Overall we would recommend this property to our friends without any reservation.

Perfect home for our family

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 family with 5 kids in total so we really needed space and enough to keep the happy. Before arrival we had many communications with the owner as well as the property manager which was really appreciated. At our arrival, the house was cleaned , fresh and fridge was filled with soda and water as promised. The house is very well located from the Main street and most beaches as well. In fact there was a beach walking distance that we went to almost everyday. Overall, we had a great time and Mr. Kendall the property manager was extremely kind and resourceful. I strongly recommend the Salty Shack for a great vacation in Hyannis.

Memorial Day Cape Cod Soccer Classic

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Salty Shack. There was a few surprises when we arrived, first one was that the property is in a condo complex, although it is a separate unit....the grill that is pictured in the photos is no longer there and the grill that was there is no way near equivalent. The property was very clean, especially since we were the first renters of the year. The property manager Todd was a super person, he stocked the fridge with sodas and waters for us. It is a very short walk to a very nice beach. Over all it was a great weekend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review :) I've updated the picture of the new grill. I'm constantly replacing items in the house as needed. For instance we just replaced the coffee table and end table with a beautiful new set. Just to be clear this is a stand alone house, it is not attached to any other house. Todd is an awesome property manager and we always provide free soda and water for new arrivals!
