About The Papallo Family

We (Dave and Marian Papallo) are both from Connecticut and have been coming to Cape Cod for over 60 years. We love it here so much, we even spent our honeymoon on the Cape Cod beaches! We have been married for over 52 years and have five children and twelve grandchildren. We love spending time in our cottage (Unit #11) and take pride in the cottages we rent (#9 and #10). Our children now assist us in the mangagement of the property and we plan on keeping the property in the family for many generations to come!

The Papallo Family purchased this cottage in 1986

Why The Papallo Family chose Dennis

We bought this property because we loved the area and all it offered for our family of seven. We rented Unit #10 for several years before the previous owner put it up for sale. We are so happy we purchased this because our five children loved it so much and now our 12 grandchildren are making new memories here! Additionally, the two cottages can be rented independently or can be rented together to form one larger rental (for a larger family or two families). Each living room has a door that can be opened which would allow the living rooms to be joined and closed when privacy is sought. It's perfect for a large family or two families vacationing together!

What makes this cottage unique

West Dennis beach is on the ocean side and the snack bar, bathrooms, showers and swings are on the end of the beach where our cottages are located. With the ocean just a short distance in front of the cottages and the salt water inlet right behind them, we loved the cross-breeze that comes through the cottages (hence the name Crosswinds).

Very clean, amazing access to the beach!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at crosswinds! We have a 1 and 3 year old, they had a blast at the beach, and we were able to make multiple trips a day due to being so close! The only things holding me back from five stars and I hate to even say them because we had so much fun would be the lack of shade in the backyard for the kids and my husband is ober 6 ft so the full bed for the two of us was a little tight. Otherwise this was perfect location! The Papallo family was there when we arrived and helped us right away! They were even very helpful when trying to make a week work to book both cottages so our friends could stay next door with their kids! Thank you so much!

Fantastic weekend with friends in the cutest cottages

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend celebrating a friends wedding at the cottages right across the street from the reception hall. The cottage was just perfect and in the best location. They were exactly what we wanted. Very clean with all amenities needed for our stay. The whole rental process was seamless too. Definetly would rent again.

Cozy and great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family only stayed over Labor Day weekend, but we wish we had more time. Cottage was clean and cozy. We had our meals on the outside patio, great view and so relaxing. Beach was a short walk down the road. Restaurants and shopping only a short drive away.

Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend these great cottages. Location is obviously fantastic, walking distance to West Dennis Beach. Cottage was very clean, well equipped, great wifi and quiet neighborhood at night. The owner is very accommodating. Nice ocean breeze made for great sleeping weather, even on a warm night. Would definitely book this again!!!!

Quaint cottage with ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed a stay at the Crosswinds Cottage with extended family. My brother and his family stayed in unit 10 while my family and I stayed in unit 9. The owners were at the cottage upon our arrival and were extremely helpful in showing us around the property. Each unit has two bedrooms, one bathroom with a shower, kitchen and living space. We were pleasantly surprised to find out that there is a door connecting the two units so we could open it while we were all visiting in the evenings, or close them when we needed more privacy. The back yard was great with a small patio off of each unit. While we did not use them, there are camp style grills for your use, which is very convenient. There is an outdoor shower in the back yard as well which was great in helping to keep sand out of the cottage. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to prepare meals. We appreciated the cleanliness and organization of the property. It really was spotless upon our arrival and everything within the cottage was very easy to find.

The best part of the cottage was the location. It is a very short walk to West Dennis Beach (with sidewalks) which was easy for even our small children. With the close proximity, we were able to take a quick walk back to the cottage if we forgot something or if one of the kids needed a nap. We were very lucky to enjoy near-perfect beach weather throughout our entire stay, which made us appreciate our location that much more. We had such a great stay in West Dennis at the Crosswinds Cottage. It's a great area to visit, and we look forward to returning for future vacations!

It was a perfect size for 5 people!

  • 4 of 5

Overall experience was great! We went to a wedding at the West Dennis Yacht club and it was right across the street! Also the beach was walking distance but we did not go. The reason why I gave it a 4 star rating and not 5 star is because of the beds. That would be the only thing I would change_ the beds. We didn't even mind the bunk beds at all, but the actual beds were so hard and uncomfortable. (I am unsure about the full sized bed, but the top bunk and the single twin bed were extremely uncomfortable.) Also, the top bunk states it cannot exceed 165 lbs! I was planning on taking the top bunk until I saw that! Boy I was extremely grateful one of our five people was under that -- or one of us would have had to sleep on the couch!!!

The owner, Doug, was a delight to work with! He was always so helpful when I called him prior to the vacation, and either picked up the phone right away or called back within an hour or so.

Overall, it really was a beautiful little house and I rate it 4 stars!!
