About the property

3 Bedroom, Whole House Views Of The Bay. Get Lost In Time And Forget It All!

#306 Beach Respite Cottage: Classic Cape Cod - sandy trail 100 yards to semi-private beach! A timeless traditional cape cottage with a majestic view, this property is for those who are looking to truly getaway from it all. Enjoy your morning coffee in the living room, as you watch the sunlight twinkle on the face of Wellfleet Harbor. Lieutenant Island is an exclusive neighborhood of Wellfleet with a handful of private beaches you and your guests will have access to. You can collect oysters for dinner, discover another world of birds and sea creatures in the salt marshes, and relax endlessly on a private beach. Bring your groceries (or ask for the cabin to be pre-stocked for you) and a group of people you love, and allow a stay at this little gem to clear your mind and reinvigorate your spirit. Has three bedrooms: queen, twin bunks, single-twin bed - though it is cozy, you'll think you've travelled back in time to Old Cape Cod.

Have you ever stayed on Lt Island before? It is a pristine natural preserve in Wellfleet accessible by car 23hrs of the day. At high tide for about 1hr you cannot cross the causeway. Most people find this cool but I always share as it is something to plan around.

About Del Mar Vacations

The vision of Del Mar Vacations was born out of the principle of "The Perfect Stay". The founders of our company frequently experienced vacation homes that were empty and unmemorable. They found themselves wanting for the hospitality and ease one hopes for when they're on vacation at a boutique hotel. Something above the ordinary. Something special.

Del Mar started with a simple goal: create a perfect stay for every vacation. We are a Vacation Home Hotel that professionalizes the management and hospitality in vacation homes, turning them into exceptional experiences. Each home is unique with it's own story - but guest experiences should always achieve a quality standard.

Have a perfect stay!

This Is Del Ma

Why Del Mar Vacations chose South Wellfleet

You travel to Cape Cod to get away from everything - then realize you've just entered a hectic tourist season with route-6 nearly impassable. Why?

At the Beach Respite cottage on Lieutenant Island, you'll park your car and never want to leave the 'Island'. Come prepared to stay at the beach and explore the bay for the week. You won't deal with 'full parking lots' or traffic while on your vacation because you have everything one could want from Cape Cod - right out your back door.

Cozy Cottage, Gorgeous View

  • 5 of 5

You need to love cozy -- for the cottage is small -- but if you do, this is a gem. The cottage is charming and the view of the bay is spectacular. Lieutenant Island is beautiful and gives a sense of seclusion even in Cape Cod's busiest time. It is a short walk to three different beaches. The owners were extraordinarily helpful throughout our stay. This is definitely a place we would come back to -- with joy.

Cottage was in DISREPAIR

  • 3 of 5

The house smelled musty....very poor lighting....no closet to hang clothes....and GOOD LUCK finding the house - especially if you arrive after dark

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, Our 'writer's cottage' is a Thoreau-ian experience in the dunes of Wellfleet. It is humble and nostalgic...and incredibly well priced for a holiday weekend! Perhaps next time you'd like to book a less budget friendly more premium home - in which case we can help with alternatives. Our cottage has one of the most beautiful views of Wellfleet Harbor and amazing natural lighting akin to the artistic delight of The Hopper House for art, writing and reading. We always like when our guests call us with feedback as it is so helpful in terms of improving things. For instance, I've now installed a dehumidifier in the basement, and am unlocking and emptying our owner's closet so there is more space for guests to store things. Your review, while intended to be hurtful, is actually quite helpful to us. Thanks for taking the time to share. Best, Luke

Sweet cottage, gorgeous location!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean and uncluttered. We walked to the beach every evening to watch the sunset and the island is dark enough to see the Milky Way at night! National seashore beaches are an easy drive and Catch of the Day is a great restaurant.

Cute & Quaint!

  • 5 of 5

This is a small cottage on the beach, and it is perfect for a couple. The bathroom has been fully modernized and updated, and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need, should you choose to cook (so many good restaurants in Wellfleet!). The highlight of this cottage is the location -- just across the street from beautiful Mayo beach, and walking distance to downtown Wellfleet.

Having never been to Cape Cod before I honestly wasn't sure where to stay or who to book through. Having come across a couple vacation ads I contacted Luke who was incredibly informative and accomadating. I wanted a quiet place near the beach. He suggested respite beach cottage. I reserved it immediately. Pulling up to it after an 8 hour drive I was immediately pleased. It is an adorable little cottage but still had enough room for a family. I went to sleep and woke to some of the most amazing views. The cottage was exactly what I needed and how Luke described it. We couldn't get the tv to work (I brought a book but my friend "needed" a tv), however Luke came right over and fixed it. My favorite part of this trip not only was walking the beach but was relaxing on the couch reading my book watching the tide come in from out the window. The cottage was also perfectly located between Provincetown and Orleans so it made our excursions quick to get to. I would stay here again or in fact any of Luke's other recommendations. This cottage was perfect and exactly what I needed.

Thank you Luke!
