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 spend 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!

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). For larger families (or two families vacationing together), the identical adjoining unit can be rented (based on availability).

5 miute walk to the beach! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the 'quaint' cottages in the song, rather than the large expansive places that are popping up all over the Cape. We have stayed at similar older cottages for over 40 years. While my rating gives the cottage itself 4 1/2-stars (older but nicely kept), the extra 1/2 is for the location, which is perfect. Great views, very short walk to beach entrance, and great location to travel up or down the cape from. We will be coming back!

Terrific wedding weekend at this cottage

  • 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. The view is terrific from all sides of the cottage, marsh on one and ocean on the other. It is just a short walk to the beach. Awesome place to take a walk too since the beach is over a mile long. They were exactly what we were looking for. Very clean with all amenities needed for our stay. The whole rental process was seamless and Doug was super helpful. Definetly would rent again.

Nice vacation place

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time! The Pappalo family is very nice, they are there if you need them.

The units are nice, well cared for as a beach property. Very closed to beach, 3 minute walk. Everything is five minutes by car, grocery store, gas station, pharmacy, etc.. Conveniently located.

I would definetely come again and stay here!

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!

Had a lovely and relaxing stay—would recommend!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this cottage was quiet and peaceful. The house is outfitted with everything we needed to cook (me made our own dinner all 7 nights), and has a picnic table in the backyard where we could eat in the open-air. The bedrooms were comfortable, clean and neat. The owners were very pleasant and quickly fixed a wi-fi issue we had the next morning after being notified. The beach is incredibly close and the views from the front and back yard are beautiful— lots of sky all around! Rt. 28 is easily accessible by car and has lots of restaurants, ice-cream stores, and mini-golf courses. I would recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a stress free, beach-oriented stay! We certainly hope to come back next summer.
