Our home

Located in charming Osterville, one of the most beautiful towns in Cape Cod, only two miles from the beach, this four bedroom home sleeps eight-- perfect for a two family or inter-generational vacation. In addition to three bedrooms on the second floor, we have a guest bedroom on the first floor with private adjoining bathroom, perfect for handicapped or elderly guests. House also comes equipped with full crib and baby monitor. Enjoy gourmet cooking in the fully appointed state-of-the-art kitchen, or barbecue/entertain on the lovely mahogany deck. Enjoy your morning coffee "al fresco" as you relax and plan your day's events! The house is fully equipped with everything you and your family will need for a perfect vacation -- beach chairs, beach towels, cooler for picnics, and even flat screen, high definition TV with premium cable/HBO/Comcast On-Demand for a rainy day. All you need to pack is the suntan lotion! With everything you could possibly want within a five mile radius -- lovely beach and ponds, trails for hiking, art galleries, designer shops and antique dealers, general store, restaurants, book store, ice cream parlor, even a local gym and day spa -- you can relax, renew, recharge, and return home from vacation feeling truly refreshed. The slightly more sedate pace of life that Osterville offers you, and the ideal central location make this charming Cape home a perfect and complete vacation spot for families, newlyweds, or individuals looking to just ''stop and smell the roses.''

Who we are

  1. Although my husband, Paul and I live in New York City, we spend our summers and family holidays in our beautiful Cape Cod home. We love to cook, and we love to entertain and have friends and family visit, so we've designed the house to make all our guests feel relaxed and comfortable. My husband is an advertising executive and I am an elementary school teacher. With the birth of our first grand child, 4 years ago, we have equipped our Cape home with crib, toys, baby monitor, so the house is perfect for a family with little ones or for a multi-generational vacation. We are looking to visit our daughter and her family in Dana Point, California during the Christmas holiday so we are looking for a home in Dana Point to exchange with our Cape home. Although we are looking to come to Dana Point in December, our Cape home is available any time in spring or summer.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Although we have a beautiful state-of-the art kitchen, if you need a vacation from preparing meals, you are centrally located near major four star restaurants, authentic Cape seafood eateries, and a host of delicious ''take-out'' pizzerias! Located in a quieter area of Osterville, the neighborhood is perfect for evening strolls and morning bike rides. Osterville boasts one of the most beautiful and exclusive beaches, Dowses, reserved for residents only (complimentary beach sticker included which allows you entrance and free parking at all of Barnstable County's many beaches). If you prefer fresh water, Joshua's Pond is one mile away -- a perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Even closer, Mike's Pond is a hidden jewel only a few locals know, where you and your family dog can commune with nature and swim together! We are also an hour and fifteen minute drive to the historic city of Boston with museums, theater, fine-dining and exclusive shopping on Newbury Street. Also, we are easy driving distance to visit the beautiful Newport, Rhode Island mansions, and a short ferry ride to both Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. We are perfectly located for those who want to sightsee, as well as those who prefer to relax on the beach by day and barbecue at night.
