About Owners Rich and Martine Palanza

My husband Rich and I have lived in Mansfield all our lives. From 1979 Rich spent most of his summers at his parents Pocassett beach house, which we visited all the time when our older children were little. But as our family grew we realized we needed a space of our own.

Owners Rich and Martine Palanza purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Owners Rich and Martine Palanza chose Popponesset

Uncle Henry was only the second property we looked at on Cape Cod in January of 2012. This cottage was a sight to see. Boy did you need vision and that is exactly what my husband had. He gave life to our dreams and hours of endless work to make this tare-down an adorable cottage and a perfect family getaway. We love escaping to the sea side where life at the cottage is simple.

What makes this cottage unique

location location, location. From the moment we walked through this cottage. We saw something special that could be achieved. Rich and I Still can't believe we found this vacation house a simple walk to a beautiful beach and breathtaking ocean views. This cottage is home away from home. We embrace such a simpler life here at the beach. It doesn't take hours to clean the cottage. The kids don't need iphones, video games, ipads etc, they play bocce, tetherball in the yard or cards and boardgames on the porch. They ride bikes and play in the sand at the beach and swim endlessly in the ocean or take endless walks to the Market place.

Laundry is minimal, the kids are in bathing suits 80% of the time. What a joy it is to experience the simple pleasure of life here at Popponesset. The friends we have made are wonderful people. You will love it here. The safe community, lots of activities and new friends who all look out for eachothers kids, are what make this location such a unique, special and memorable place to vacation. We simply love Poppy time.

the perfect little beach house!

  • 5 of 5

Martine and Rich have a wonderful home just a short walk from the beach. The hosts we're quick to respond to any questions. The house was clean and really felt like a home away from home. Would absolutely recommend for a cape getaway!

Best family vacation Summer '17 !

  • 5 of 5

Martine and Richie have a beautiful home that we were lucky enough to enjoy for a week this summer. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. Feels like home. The owners were available anytime you have questions or need something. It is a short walk to a beautiful private beach. The luxury of walking back and forth to the cottage is priceless. We would highly recommend this to anyone!

Our Happy Place!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love Popponesset. We have been going there for 8 summers now. We love this cottage. Everything is perfect, from the decor to the cleanliness, the bocce court, and the outdoor shower that has plenty of space for you to change and not get wet!! We love it here and would

Never want to go anywhere else. Our kids love it and we now have extended family renting in the area after seeing how beautiful and kid friendly Popponesset is. This cottage feels like a second home to us

And the owners are the nicest people you would ever want to meet. This is truly our Happy Place!!😊

Excellent Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best week ever! Home is maintained beautifully and the location was perfect! Short walk to the beach and marketplace made it easy for the kids to explore! Spacious backyard was perfect for a nightly fire. Can't wait to go back next summer!

A wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd year staying at this property. The location is great - just a short walk to the beach or to marketplace. The house is comfortable, clean and inviting. The neighborhood is quiet and family oriented. The yard offers a nice fire pit for evenings of smore making and also a bocci court! There is plenty of room for other outdoor games too. We brought cornhole and can jam and had a great time. The beach is a straight walk down the road and is clean and not over crowded. The owners are wonderful and call to check in after the first day. It is obvious that they want to make sure you have everything you need. We highly recommend this property and I am sure we will be staying there again!
