Private Beach!!!

September 13, 2011

The two best things about this property is the close proximity to a private beach and the property itself is private. You don't see your neighbors. This property is part of a home owners association that is why there is a bridge that takes you out to the beach. There are no crowds like at Nauset Beach. The house is open and spacious. There is everything that you probably need in the kitchen for a summer stay. There is a deck and a screened in porch on the first floor and another deck on the second floor. The master is on the first floor and there are two bedrooms upstairs. There is a large living room and a den on the first floor as well as a sittiing room upstairs. So there are lots of places that people can go if they want to be away from others in the house. The kitchen is big enough so that more than one person could work there at the same time. The eating area is adjacent to the kitchen. There are lots of windows so it is bright during the daytime. Also it has great airflow. With the windows open the breeze from the ocean cools the house. Also you can hear the waves of the ocean at night and it is very soothing. The washer and dryer are on the first floor, which is always a plus. The bathroom upstairs is large, but there is just a small stall shower. The bedrooms are all good size. The master bath actually has two sinks, one in the bathroom itself and one in what I would say is a dressing area. This property is well located and just a short ride to Orleans Center. It is actually 1.6 miles from Sundae School, which we did walk there and back one night (house has a flashlight which we used on the return). We are considering staying there again next year.

So wonderful to be back at 46 Gosnold and Orleans with our family. Cape Cod is a big part of our family lore, and this house just exemplifies why. We will be back soon. Thanks Wil.

Thank you so very much for letting us stay in this beautiful house! We enjoyed (and took full advantage of) being so close to the ocean and how fortunate we were to have such wonderful weather. The five of us look forward to - hopefully - coming back again as soon as we can. Once again, thank you!
Sincerely, Charles, Caroline, Chris, Maria and Stephen of Arlington, MA

Thank You! Diane of Lake Bluff, IL

Guest Book Entry September 22, 2013
We depart with a final adieu to la mer..............for this year! Am looking forward to another two weeks in September 2014. We discovered some wonderful trails on Morris Island looking at Monomoy Sanctuary............although walking this magnificent beach and going to Skaket for sunsets occupy most of our time....(when not consuming lobster).
Salt air: the best panacea!
OK enough, Joy and Dick of Saugerties, NY

Our family really enjoyed your home this week. When I asked our boys what they liked best, one said, "Private access to the beach," and the other, "I just liked the house." You've done a wonderful job fitting out the house with everything a home needs for a vacation - we really relaxed and had fun together. Thank you for sharing this great place with us.
Randy, Kathy, Jan and Nic of Lancaster, PA

Roger came here all tense and exhausted. We both left refreshed and relaxed!! Loved the private beach access! The sound of the ocean at night is so soothing. Thank you.

Thank you for sharing this great place with us for a week. Randy, Kathy, Ian and Nick (Guest Book 7/1/11)

Thank you for an amazing stay in Orleans! You made our first family vacation on Cape Cod a memorable one! You have a beautiful home - we could not have asked for anything more. Your home is truly welcoming and we felt comfortable as soon as we arrived. The closeness to the beach is a fantastic benefit - and we enjoyed the privacy as well. Frank and Kristen Guestbook September 2010

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How close is the ocean?
A: It's an easy five to 10 minute walk, depending on wether or not there are young children along. Before the trees around us grew up we used to be able to see the ocean from our deck. Now only the upstairs has an ocean view.
Q: What are the most fun things to do?
A: Relaxing on the deck, swimming, walks on the beach and on nearby Pochet Island, accessible by walking along the RV road (south), and where it turns left through the dunes to the ocean, you turn right and cross a small bridge. The island is private, but well-behaved visitors are welcome (proclaims a sign past the bridge).
Q: Privacy?
A: Each house in the Association sits on at least 1/2 an acre. We have a good sized lawn and the property is surrounded by trees - very private.
