About the owner: As a child, our family vacationed in this adorable neighborhood. We were fortunate to purchase the original cottage, which used to stand here in the late '70's, and then re-built our now year-round home in the early '90's. We spent our summers in the new house when our kids were young and we now offer to share it with you to make your Cape Cod vacation memories.

What is special about this property?
Location, location, location…..we've loved this location for over 40 years. It's an easy stroll to the family friendly Atlantic Street beach as well as a short walk into town for coffee, restaurants, bars, shops, CVS & US Post Office. Since we're on a dead end street, your vacation is peaceful and private. Our beach house is meticulously maintained and always clean and fresh for your arrival.
We are readily available, during your stay, for any questions you may have. We are a total turn-key vacation rental.....not only is the home stocked with bed linens, bath & beach towels, beach buggy, chairs & umbrellas, to ease you into vacation mode, we also provide starter supplies of paper products, soaps, trash bags and many often used condiments. A ''Renters Guide'' book will acquaint you with the ins and outs of our home and the area.

Why this property? Harwich is conveniently located just before the elbow of the Cape. We're convenient to Hyannis as well as Provincetown and all points in between. The Freedom Cruise line, just down the street, offers seasonal daily ferry service to Nantucket Island.
10 Reasons why Cape Cod is a great place to visit
1.Cape Cod has some of the best beaches in the world from our beach at the end of the street to the National Seashore. You're never far from the water.
2. The peninsula is teeming with wildlife from humpback & right whales to many rare & common birds.
3. Exciting shopping options from village shops to local artisans & shopping centers.
4. First-class restaurants and casual eateries that center around local harvests of shellfish, meat, fruits & veg.
5.The vibrant art community in each town, including Cape Cod Symphony, local theatre companies, art & craft shows, galleries & big name concerts.
6.There's nothing more enjoyable than watching a Cape Cod Baseball League game on a warm summer evening. Many players go on to big league careers, so play is top notch.
7. Endless possibilities for kayaking, sailing, motor boating, fishing, seal & whale watching tours in some of the most scenic coastal areas in the world.
8. Several top-notch golf courses across the region, mini-golf too!
9. Many road races throughout the year including local events, the Falmouth Road Race & the Hyannis Marathon which draws world class runners and amateurs alike.
10. Stunning sunsets & tranquil beach walks.

Guestbook comments from the host:

Great house, convenient location!
Our family had been to Harwich Port three times over the last fifteen or so years, and could never find a house in a location that was both walkable to the beach and to town. But now we have! This house is awesome - very clean, beautifully decorated (no kitsch anywhere) with a finished basement, very cute patio and outdoor shower. It is SO CLOSE to the town beach. It was an easy walk for our littlest kids (who are 6). Also really nice that it's on a dead-end street. It's very quiet! Lots of other families staying in the neighborhood, too. Harwich Port is a great little town, with shops, cafes, restaurants and a cute bookstore. I would definitely recommend Marilyn's house!

Wonderful House in Great Location
Updated house within walking distance to beach and warm waters of Nantucket Sound. Easy walk to town with cafes restaurants, two bookstores and a candy store--plus Sundae School, one of the best ice cream shops on the Cape.

Aug 2023

Highly Recommend
This house was everything they say it is! Very clean and easy walking to beach and town.
I would highly recommend this house for any family vacation. We had the best time!!

Jul 2023

Very comfortable, clean and accommodating house
As a renter from out of state, this house had everything we would need for vacationing at the cape. It had a cozy welcoming feel yet roomy enough so you did not feel cramped as you would in many cape houses. The location was great as we could walk to the town center (lots of cute little shops, bars, and restaurants) as well as the beach and CVS (should you need last minute items). I would definitely rent this house again. Thank you Marilyn!

The Best!
This is an absolutely beautiful home. All the rooms are spacious and pristinely clean, with very comfortable seating and well lit for reading, games, or just lounging with family and friends. This house has all you might need in terms of an outside seating area, outside shower, beach toys, chairs, books, games, kitchen supplies, etc. bedrooms and bathrooms are beautifully decorated. The location is also a major plus! The owner is gracious and made the rental process easy. I would highly recommend this home - definitely a 5 out of 5 star choice.

Jun 2023

Perfect Home
This home is quite exceptional. Everything was shiny clean and easy to find in the home. All the kitchen utensils you could want were there for cooking most anything. Maybe not an air fryer. The kitchen was stocked with salt, pepper, sugar, spices, etc. the house was very spacious for 2 grandparents, 2 adult children and 2 grandchildren. It is very nicely located to the beach and to restaurants and fish markets and kids activities.

Aug 2022

Amazing house!
Marilyn is very responsive and this house has everything and more! It's very clean, has plenty of room and most importantly it's close to the beach! I would highly recommend this house to anyone.
