Oceanfront Large Family-Friendly Home at Falmouth Heights Beach - Cape Cod

Bedrooms 6
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

6 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, Sleeps 12

Bright and Sunny Oceanfront home. Steps from the beach. Amazing 180 degree ocean views. Our house is a 2 story home situated on a bluff overlooking the island of Marthas Vineyard and Nantucket Sound. The Town of Falmouth celebrates July 4th with a huge fireworks display which takes place on a floating barge directly in front of our house. The famous' Falmouth Road Race' which attracts runners from around the world can be viewed right from our front yard.

The house has 6 bedrooms, 2 full kitchens, 2 bathrooms each with tub/shower, 2 living rooms, 2 dining areas, balcony, glassed-in sun porch, and patio. We purchased this house over 25 years ago precisely because it had been configured so that it could be used either as a normal 2 story house, albeit with 2 kitchens or as 2 separate fully equipped large apartments. This of course permitted our immediate family to reside in one apt. and our in-laws and/or family friends to use the other apt. simultaneously. The togetherness was and is great but so was and is the ability to retreat to your private space. There is a Washer/Dryer and included in each apartment is a dishwasher, high speed internet, microwave, and cable television. There is also a patio with BBQ and an outdoor hot water shower for removing all that sand and salt from the beach. The property has the most amazing direct ocean and beach views from almost every room in the house. Parking is available for 4 cars. Steps away from beach-side dining and pubs. 2 minute walk to beach, 3 minute walk from Falmouth Harbor, 3 minute walk from Falmouth Yacht Club. The Island Queen Ferry to Martha's Vineyard is just a short 5 minute walk. Bicycle rentals, several parks, baseball park, and basketball court are all located nearby. Short jaunt from Falmouth village center and all of the restaurants, shops and bars. This location is unsurpassed as far as views and proximity to everything needed for an outstanding and truly memorable summer vacation.

About Peter

Our family has summered here for over 25 years. Our two children have grown up using the wonderful parks and beaches and learned to sail, fish and swim just in front of our house.

Peter purchased this house in 1987

Why Peter chose Falmouth Heights

We purchased this property so that our family could have a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation spot by the sea. Our house is very conveniently situated with the harbor, yacht club, beaches, parks and village all located on our doorstep. Even the Falmouth town center which is so family friendly is very close which permits quick and easy access to the shops,,pubs restaurants and other services. Add the views and beach access and this is a truly breathtaking and unbeatable location.

What makes this house unique

The views of the Ocean and proximity to the beach are second to none. The world famous Woods Hole Oceanographic institute is located nearby. Falmouth also has an amazing bike path called the Shining Sea Bike Path which runs parallel to the sea for several miles.

Our stay at This home was lovely. The views from the upper level

Living area and porch are incredible. This home has lots of space for a big group inside and also a nice patio area for outdoor dining.

Absolutely loved watching the town of Falmouth Fourth of July fireworks that are set off from a barge in the Vineyard Sound which is directly across the street. If you rent this spot, you will not be disappointed!

Our family just spent this past week at this spacious and accommodating home with a beautiful view of the ocean. The home was close to the beach, restaraunts, shining sea bike trail, Island Queen Ferry to Martha's Vineyard and the downtown shops. This home is a great place for a family vacation

Lovely home overlooking the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely lovely. We had 2 families and the house was more than enough to accommodate us all.

My favorite part of the home was the small porch overlooking the ocean- best spot for coffee in the morning!

Beds were comfy and the kitchens were well equipped.

We biked the entire Shining Sea Bikeway- what a great ride!

Fantastic for family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation here and would definitely come back if we have the chance! The house is well appointed and comfortable with 180 degree water views. The owner was responsive and helpful. The description/pictures on VRBO and the other review are accurate and reliable. We cooked a few meals on the barbecue which turned out great and were very happy that there was a thermometer reading on the bbq lid...........helping us cook to perfection, and also an extra propane tank, which was very thoughtful of the owners. The queen beds (two of the bedrooms) had very deep new mattresses which were really comfortable. We brought all of our own bedding and towels, but were surprised to find that each bed already had a mattress pad on it and there were lots of standard pillows we could have used. Each bedroom had a room air conditioner unit, which we used at night. It was nice to know that two small washers and dryers were available, though we only made use of the dryers to dry up the towels as we packed up to leave. The WiFi was nice to have, once we figured out how to turn it on. We didn't spend time watching TV, as the magnificent views of the Sound kept us entertained!

We were happy with the short walk to the Falmouth Heights Beach. We also drove to Old Silver Beach for variety and wind surfing..........and remembered why walking to the beach is so great after being hit up for $20 for parking, and learning that public parking is difficult to find, as many of the lots at beaches are for residents only. Having never been to Cape Cod (as adults) before, we were pleasantly surprised to find the town of Falmouth and its Main Street so quaint, with nice restaurants and shops. Also happy to find the Windfall Market, a short drive away, was a very nice grocery store with everything we could want including prepared foods/salads, good produce (the corn was fantastic) and general items. Our kids (in their 20s) and my husband and I all thought it was a perfect place for our family vacation!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

1st time renter from VRBO and I couldn't be happier. We rented this property for family vacation(4 generations) and it was perfect for us. The property sits right across the street from the water with spectacular views of Nantucket Sound and Martha's Vineyard. It is just a very short walk to the beach, the ferry to Martha's Vineyard , and 2 restauraunts. The owner was very helpful answering my questions. We had a minor problem with a blown fuse. We called the property manager and they were right out to fix it.

We went with my elderly parents and they loved the sunporch overlooking the Sound.

This is truly a beautiful spot which I would love to visit again someday.

Car: recommended

Day trips to Marthas Vineyard and/or Nantucket via ferry are easily accessible nearby. While Nantucket is a little further Marthas Vineyard is only a 35 minute ferry ride away and the ferry is just a 5 minute walk from the house
