Cozy Cape Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage and location is an awesome deal for staying by the cape without the commotion of traffic, tourist and cost! We stayed a week and had everything we needed and more! The ocean was just out the back door and there was plenty to do to relax or go have fun. My nephews loved exploring the rocky private beach for shells and crabs. We hung out on the spacious porch and the cottage was spacious for playing games and cooking too. And don't forget to take a shower in the outdoor shower to feel like a real cape codder! We spent outings going into the cape to see light houses and do shopping. We also took a ferry to MV for a fun touristy day. But each evening was wonderful to come home and see the sun set. The nature on west island is so beautiful as we were woken each morning with chorus of bird song and even watched bunnies on the back lawn. A perfect stay for the young and young at heart!

This was a beautiful home, extremely well stocked with everything you need. There were lovely lounge chairs on the beach with an umbrella, a terrific porch from where you could watch the sunset. Inside, the house was very well layed-out and comfortable. The owners were gracious and very helpful. The other side of the West Island has a Reservation Park with small beaches, as well as a public beach. We really had a beautiful stay.
