You can swim, play in the sand, and enjoy the view of Lewis Bay and many boats that enter Hyannis Inner Harbor every year. You can walk to Hyannis Harbor and board a deep-sea fishing vessel, take a ferry to an island, or have lunch at one of the harborside restaurants.
The house is located next to a 100 acre parcel of undeveloped land with trails for walking, biking and dog-walking. We do accept well-behaved mature canine companions at an additional charge. Your dog will greatly enjoy the walks in the conservation area.

Reviews for this vacation home rental in West Yarmouth, Massachusetts
Wonderful Family Getaway
August 17, 2014
Jennifer Fisk My family and I (2 adults and 2 children) stayed at the Bayview Getaway in August 2014. It was our first visit to Cape Cod, but will not be our last. The vacation home was wonderful! Very well appointed and lacking no amenities. The newly remodeled kitchen lacked for nothing that was required, while the beds and baths provided everything we needed and more! The provided beach pass provided access to all the local beaches and made it very easy and affordable. The house was within walking distance to the bay and local restaurants. Bikes allowed us to head out and explore. I would highly recommend this home to any family looking to make an escape on the Cape!
Thank you for choosing our home for your stay and for being such wonderful guests. So happy that you found our home well equipped, comfortable and the location so convenient and central. It was a pleasure to welcome your family and hope you a wonderful rest of the year!

Comfy Cape on the Cape
September 30, 2013
Enjoyed staying at Bayview Getaway. Clean home with everything you could possibly need during your stay. Dead end street great for children play even though we didn't bring children. Nice deck off of kitchen. Small beach close by with nice view and kids play area. Near hospital. We felt very safe there during our cousins vacation week.
Our stay the last week in August was wonderful. The house is cozy, well appointed and very clean. The bedrooms are large and so quiet and comfortable. The location is so convenient, within walking distance to Bayview beach, Hyannis, nice restaurants and ferrys to the islands, and, of course, being able to take our dog was a great plus. Julia and Chuck's extensive information was invaluable for traffic, restaurants, etc. We highly recommend a stay at Bayview getaway to anyone wishing to visit the Cape.

09/14/08 "We booked Bayview Getaway directly with the owners Julia and Chuck on the internet, as we were booking from the UK I was a little nervous but Julia made the process very easy and paying through Paypal ensured that our payment was secure. Prior to leaving England for the States we received a wealth of information from Julia about the house, the surrounding area, directions from the freeway and where to find local amenities.
When we arrived at the house it exceeded our expectations it was well equipped spotlessly clean and well prepared for our arrival. Christopher and Rachel were particularly impressed by the free internet connection and made very good use of it.
Bayview is a short stroll from the harbour, the beech and the centre of Hyannis.We arrived in Cape Cod after travelling for 12 days our intention was to spend our time relaxing on the beaches, however, there is so much to see and do in Cape Cod that we spent very little time on the beach. We went to Martha's Vineyard, whale watching, shopping and too many other things to list. It is well worth looking to see what is on at the Cape Cod Melody Tent in Hyannis; we had a fantastic night out watching the Beach Boys in concert. We wish we had planned to stay longer in Cape Cod and will definitely be back to stay at Bayview Getaway in the not too distant future.Hilary, Chris, Christopher and Rachel." - Hilary Crossley, Sale Cheshire England
08/29/08 "As we were booking direct with owners for 3 generations, we were bound to be apprehensive. However, I can assure you that each one of us felt that this was an absolutely fabulous location for our vacation! The situation is so relaxing with the beach, town and ferries mere minutes away. There are so many facilities at Bayview Getaway to ensure that every detail can be attended to, and plenty of space for a large family group. Hard to pick out highlights as there were so many. However, the Bluefish at Tugboats is not to be missed and it's worth skipping lunch to do the Brazilian Grill! Hyannis is well placed to get about the Cape, and there's certainly plenty to see or plenty of good safe beaches to enjoy. Thanks Julia and Chuck for providing us with this opportunity to want to return!!!" - Steve Cole, Cheshire UK
08/23/08 "We stayed at the Bayview Getaway from 9th August - 16th August 2008. We were a bit apprehensive booking a house over 3000 miles away direct with the owners as we have only ever booked houses abroad through agencies. We needn't have worried though. Bayview Getaway is very spacious, comfortable and had everything we needed. We especially appreciated the beach chairs, toys and umbrella. The location is ideal - only a few minutes walk to a beach, the ferries and Hyannis Main Street. Recommend Percy's Place for breakfast and Tugboats for dinner. This was our first visit to Cape Cod. We had a great time and will definitely be back sometime. " - The Borgman Family, Wiltshire, UK
08/10/08 "Bayview Getaway had all of the comforts of home! It is centrally located which makes visiting all of the various areas of the Cape quite easy! The home was very clean, comfortable and beautifully appointed. Having items supplied such as beach chairs and cooking items made packing so much easier! It truly was a home away from home! We hope to be back next year!!" - The Simmons Family, Attleboro, MA
07/28/08 "We vacationed at the Bayview Getaway cottage from July 12th to July 19th of this year. We loved it! The house was gorgeous, very nicely decorated, and well maintained. The amenities were exceptional and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We especially enjoyed the short walk to the Bayview Beach (with a 5 and 3 year old), and our Boxer (Bode) enjoyed his walks in the nature area. We would highly recommend this rental property for a wonderful stay on the Cape!" - The Julians, Pennsylvania
07/15/08 "We stayed at the Getaway during the first 2 weeks of July and this holiday rates as one of the best we have ever had. Julia was very attentive during our stay and was extremely helpful leading up to our departure. The Getaway is very comfortable and being located near Hyannis is central to most areas of the Cape and Boston. We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the Getaway to anyone - you will have a fantastic time." - Andrew Clark, Scotland
02/08/08 "We stayed in this house for the entire month of October. We found the house to be clean, cozy and just a wonderful place for my four children and my chocolate labrador. We explored the Cape and islands AND Boston, easily from the location and truly felt when we turned down "our street" like we were coming home from our various excursions. Liked being near Hyannis center and the hospital. Found the home pleasant, with roomy bedrooms, and extremely accomodating. Hope to stay there again next year!Julia was lovely to work with throughout the process! Fall was a LOVELY time to be in New England!" - M.E. Starr, Columbus, OH
12/27/07 "We stayed at the vacation home during the week of Thanksgiving 2007. It was perfect. The house was very clean and well-appointed, and the kitchen was plenty big enough for us to cook a 20-lbs. turkey with all the side dishes. We had a great time. Thanks for everything." - SMP, Potomac, MD
09/19/07 "Thanks again Julia, for a great vacation. Your house was roomy enough for my family and dog and was close enough to all the beautiful beaches. The kitchen had everything we needed and we loved the fact we didn't have to bring utensils or bedding with us. Thanks again. Cheryl" - Cheryl Smagala, Milford, NJ
09/08/07 "Julia and Chuck, We had a wonderful vacation and enjoyed staying at your lovely home. Great location, close to the beach but also nice being on a dead end street for the kids and our dog. We had near perfect weather the whole week and spent much of it at the beach. Our favorite is Corporation beach in Dennis. The kids swam, built sandcastles, and caught crabs while our dog ran the length of the beach, chasing birds, swimming in the surf and saying "hello" to the other dogs. Other highlights include Pirate's Cove mini-golf, Zooquarium, trip to P-town and Captain Parker's famous cam chowder. Thanks for helping make this vacation so memorable!" - Phil, Colleen, Conor and Dylan, MA
07/28/07 "Julia and Chuck, Thanks for everything - we wanted for nothing, you have truly considered every possible need a family might have. The location is spot-on; Bayview Street - best kept secret on the Cape! Made friends with Ruth across the road, a remarkable woman for her age. Our boys loved the bicycles - used daily. The shed had everything for the beach. Thank you *soooo* much for the wonderful holiday. We hope to return, but for now the green fields of Northern Ireland are calling us home. " - Myrtle and Stephen, Ireland
07/23/07 "Thank you for such a wonderful vacation home! It was very clean, fully equipped with all of the necessities, and you couldn't ask for a better location! Not only was it centrally located, but at the same time it was such a quiet area at the end of the street. The master suite on the first floor was especially nice and private for my father. The upstairs left plenty of room for ourselves and our two children. Our congratulations to you for thinking of everything!" - Lynn, Lou & Webb, Orchard Park, N.Y.,
"Dear Julia and Family, We really enjoyed our stay at your lovely home. The house had everything we needed and we felt comfortable and at home the entire time. The location was perfect and the short walk to the beach was most appealing. We look forward to our next visit!" - Reynolds Family, New York, 10/10/05
" Beach Pass is great - we recommend Joshua Pond! The Cape Cod Street Atlas is really helpful. We had a wonderful time. It was very relaxing and though the weather wasn't great, it wasn't too hot. Once we found the knife sharpener, we were all set in the kitchen. We had everything we needed and then some. " - The Maeders, Westminster, MA, 06/24/06
"I was there over the Thanksgiving weekend with 5 of my good friends. What a great place to spend the holiday. The accomadations were first rate. All of our needs were met. I couldn't have asked for any better.First of all everything that we needed was already there, towels, sheets, cooking needs, utentsils, cups, drinking glasses, wine glasses, dvd player, cd player, television, the list is too long to include everything. The furniture and beds were very comfortable. The fireplace was fantastic. Leave it to say anything you would need to have a pleasant and comfortable stay was there.While we were there to spend time with friends and didn't take advantage of the reasons most people visit Cape Cod it is well situated for anyone who wishes to.We really had a great time and I highly recommend staying there." - Bob Cherry, New York, New York, 12/05/05
"Dear Julia and Family, Thank you for sharing your lovely vacation home. Coming to your home was the perfect ending to our already great trip to New England. We felt right at home! Since we are traveling with a 3 months old, it was nice to see the house had everything we needed and more. We can't wait to come back! Thank you again." - Tolbert and Mickle family, Texas, 10/20/05
"What a wonderful place! My boyfriend and I had two other couples join us for a "Fall Getaway". Although the weather was miserable (not much you can do about that) we made the best of it and spent a fair amount of time at the house. We enjoyed the very well equipped kitchen, cooking "comfort food" for the gang. The TV has plenty of channels and we enjoyed doing a puzzle on the coffee table. I brought wine classes and martini glasses, but didn't need them as the house came "fully equipped". I brought plastic wrap and aluminum foil, again, not needed as it was already provided. The linens and towels are high quality and luxurious while the home is comfortable and welcoming. We loved having a fire in the fire place on those cold blustery evenings. We can't wait to come back!" - Karen Thoubboron, Pittsfield, MA |, 10/19/05
"Just to say a big thank you for the cottage. It was really cosy and very well equipped and very clean. We just loved the Cape and of course the cottage was so well situated and in easy reach of everything.Just a small comment - a line to hang laundry on in the basement would be useful. Other than that everything was extremlt well organised & Julia even phoned on our arrival to check everything was o.k which we thought was a really good touch and made us feel that we were getting an excellent service. Would thoroughly recommend this property. Enjoy!!" - Denise Rajchel, Bedhampton (nr Portsmouth) Englan, 10/18/06
"Great house the place looks great outside and was even better inside. Nicely furnished and real clean. Even WiFi service in the house. Would bring my family here again in a Minute. Thanks for everything Julia & Chuck we had a great time and enjoyed the house much.Mary & John Coreystay here again in a minute" - John Corey, Latham, NY 12110, 10/15/06
"Dear Julia and Chuck,What a great time we had! The weather was rainy but we still kept busy. My grandchildren ages 1 and 2 loved the beach. I spent a few hours alone just reading and watching the boats. I can say enough about the house. It was clean, well stocked with whatever we needed. The beds were very comfortable.I loved the yard and the short walk to the beach and ferry. The only thing I would have liked is a cookie sheet to bake.Looking forward to coming next year." - Debra Hofmann, Oxford, Ct., 09/08/06
"Although our stay at Bayview was marred by family illness, we found the property to be exactly as described. We especially appreciated the following: the kitchen stocked with basic supplies, the convenience of the washer and dryer,and the beautiful bed linens and towels." - Goulds, 09/04/06
"Dear Julia & familyWe had a wonderful two weeks staying at your property. The drive from Boston airport was only about 70 miles and was very straightforward. The weather was superb and the house was excellent - we particularly liked the spaciousness of the bedrooms and the fact that there was a bathroom upstairs and down. Hyannis is fabulous - there is so much to do for all the family and a great range of restaurants. We enjoyed being within walking distance of a beach and very close to the harbour and town (could walk to these quite easily - about 15 mins walk). All restaurants we visited were great but a few that deserve a mention are Tugboats (5 mins walk from house and great views of harbour), The Lighthouse Inn at Dennis (on seafront), Hearth n Kettle (excellent menu and great for kids). For casual drinking the Black Cat pub by the harbour was excellent and they served good food as well. Thank you again.Rhona, Mark, Luke (aged 5) & Jackie Barrow" - Rhona Barrow, Woking, Surrey UK, 08/30/06
"Dear Julia and Chuck, Little did we know when we arrived that the most omportant characteristic of your beautiful home had more to do with its proximity to Cape Cod Hospital than its lovely appointments. As you now know, our daughter had to have surgery on her gall bladder and so our vacation from Wednesday on was not a typical Cape experience. But the operation was a success and the closeness to the hospital was definitely a plus. Our experience with the hospital, its nurses and doctors was very positive - so while others recommend eateries and such, we have to praise the medical facility! We thank you for your offerred help in obtaining lodging beyond our stay here. We wish you well during the remainder of the season." - Ari, Judy, Kathy, Martin, Jack, CT, 08/26/06
"Dear Julia and Chuck, Thanks for another beautiful vacation!! The weather was great all week, and we were able to spend a lot of time on the deck and in the yard. Timmy really enjoyed that ;) Just as wonderful as the weather was the very clean and orderly home! It supplied us with all we needed and more! Thanks you for always being so thoughtful and making sure everything we needed was available. Thanks again for everything and we hope to stay in touch and look forward to seeing you next summer! " - Elena, Gene, Lizzy and Timmy, Belmon, MA, 08/05/06
"Julia and Chuck,your house was fantastic, so close to everything, 5 minute walk to a beautiful beach ,or 10 minutes to Hyannis and the docks. I was amazed at how well you have it stocked,its like being at home. you really made for a Great!!! Vacation, Sam had a good time ae well. Only thing missing was an outside shower(an old cape thing)This is one home people should love to rent, no questions.Thank you again.Dave,Bonnie,Brendan,Kevin,Mollie and of course SamP.S the restaurant Salty's hAD GREAT FOOD and was reasonably priced." - Dave,Bonnie,& Family, Hanson, Mass |, 07/28/06
"Dear Julia and Chuck, WOW!! What a beautiful week. It has flown by so fast - we now need a vacation to get over this one. We haven't stopped since we arrived. The weather was wonderful - sunny every day and breezy. Sunday we used to explore, Monday the guys went deep sea fishing, and caught 7 large striper (30-40 lbs!) and the girls went on the all day trip to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard; Tuesday to the beaches; Wednesday to Boston and walked the Freedom trail + Quincy Market; Thursday to Chatham exploring the lighthouses and twon; Friday onto Provincetown and went whale watching!!! Now, how do I start to thank you for opening your home for us to stay. We found everything just as you described and were extremely comfortable.(Thank you for the extra bedding for my nephew.) Y'all come down south... Thanks much," - The Fallowes Reunion, Charleston, NC and Lake Wylie, SC, 07/26/06
"Dear Julia and family, What a week we had! The house is adorable and so well equipped - you thought of everything. We had perfect weather. The whale watch, the beaches, biking, and mini-golf were a blast. Kids loved the go carts in Harwich. We had a great meal at Salty's - the food was good, the athmosphere relaxed and casual (bathing suits and T shirts are proper dress). It was a relaxing vacation to say the least! Thank you." - Sartori family, MA, 07/22/06
"Dear Julia and Chuck, What a wonderful week we had! The weater was great despite one day of rain out of entire week. No complaints with that, though. Took the kids to the Zooquarium that day and they had a ball. Our days at the beach were so relaxing. Tugboats was our favorite place to eat and only a short stroll from the house. Your house is immaculate and filled with all the conveniences of home. It was more than any of us expected!!! It was so nice to not have to pack our linens! The house is perfectly located to everything we enjoy doing at the Cape. Morning walks to the harbor were so enjoyable. It was fun to watch the boats come and go. Main St., Hyannis has a lot of neat shops to visit. We took a seal watch tour out of Chatham and saw many seals! Our 3 children loved playing mini-golf, visiting the arcades and driving the go-carts in Harwich (after full days at the beach, of course!! :) Thank you again for meeting all our needs!!!" - Prochorena/Vanderveer families, Colchester, CT, 07/15/06
"Julia and Chuck, Over the year we have stayed in many condos and houses, but none have been better equipped and stocked... It feels like home. Our family had a fun filled 4th of July week here. Days were filled at the beach, bkiking, and a great badminton tournament. Nights were filled with cards and Beer - a great combination." - The Meeses, FL, MA, PA, 07/08/06
"We had a great time despite the rain. The house was clean, cozy and well taken care of. Thanks for the use of bikes! We recommend the Cape Cod rail trail - we took it from Orleans and over to Coast Guard beach. We also enjoyed the beach pass- Craigville was our favorite. Other recommendations are Four Seas Ice Cream in Centerville, Pirate's Cove Adventure Golf, seafood at Baxter's (a short walk), and the aquarium at Woods Hole. Thanks for the use of Cape Cod Street Map and guide books! We had a wonderful time and will try to be back soon!! Once the weather cleared up, we were good to go!! " - Bill, Mary-Jo, Tim, Lauren, MA and WI, 07/01/06
"The house was well appointed and comfortable. The pictures and description provided give one a good understanding of what to expect. I especially liked having linens and basic necessities supplied. The house is well located for long walks to the Hyannis beaches, downtown Hyannis and through the West Yarmouth neighborhood. It's also within walking distance of the island ferries and is a nice central location for exploring the rest of Cape Cod by car.The rental process worked flawlessly from initial application to the welcoming truffles and phone message, and self addressed stamped envelope that made the key return process absolutely painless. The resident beach pass provided made exploring all of the Barnstable beaches trouble free.Many thanks." - Kathleen Centeno, Rockville, Maryland, 10/03/05
"Bayview Getaway was the best cottage I have ever rented. It came with everything you could possibly need and was a terrific location for hoping on the Ferrys for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket and a short drive to all the cute towns to shop. Minutes from Hyannis. We also loved Chatham and Sandwich. We had a problem with one of the beds and Julia and Chuck broght a brand new mattress over that same day. You really feel that your comfort is very important to them. I would refer all of my friends to this place. Had a great time. Jackie from Mich." - Jackie flattery, Freeland, Mi., 09/26/05
"Dear Julia and Chuck, Thank you so much for opening your home to us. We all had a wonderful time here. The weather was perfect and we made the most of it!! The National Seashore - Head of Meadow was our favorite. Waves and empty beaches - perfect! Our pup Dusty has been sleeping soundly every night. It was great to be able to be in such a dog friendly environment. She came with us everywhere. P-town was perfect - as always. Such a fun town. Staying here made it so easy - you really have thought of everything. We were all very comfy here. Thanks so much for the chocolates and dog treats. What a nice surprise. Thank you again for a memorable vacation." - Tommy and Michele Pressey, NJ, 09/10/05
"We had a great time. The house came with much more than expected (even a spare toothbrush). Thank you for providing a comfortable vacation spot.-Jeremy" - Anonymous, 09/06/05
"Julia and Chuck, Our stay here at Bayview has been great and we are sad to see it come to an end. We were pleasantly surprised when we pulled up to the house and just as pleased with the inside. You thought of everything we could possibly need and more, the home was well equipped with everything. Each day was filled with things to do, we especially enjoyed the whale watching cruise and deep sea fishing on the Helen H out of Hyannis. We caught enough fluke for several nights worth of dinner. We also enjoyed spending cool nights on the deck and grilling dinner. Our 2 dogs, Lexy and Stimpy also felt welcome. (Thanks for the treats.) We would like to thank you for opening your home to us." - Blanca and Alan Podinker, Milltown, NJ, 08/20/05
"Dear Julia, Thank you so much for the use of your house in Cape Cod. It was perfect. Enough space for everyone not to get on each other's nerves, enough insulation... *One hopes* that the neighbours didn't hear us yelling at each other,(3 teenage girls what does one expect), a great deck where we took our meals daily, AMERICAN TV (if you don't live outside of america you don't know how exciting this can be), deck chairs that sit in the sand at sea shelled beaches, resident pass for Barnstable Beaches, quiet evening walks to the water down the street, watching the ferries to and fro from the Islands, bunny rabbits that welcome you when you arrive, A/C, an incredibly well stacked kitchen with so many things that I now want to get, and just a wonderful place filled with beautiful things that we were able to call home for a week. It was the perfect family vacation. Keys are in the mail, summer is almost done, have a great year. Thanks again Joe " - Arleen Joe Balevi, Quebec, Canada, 08/13/05
"Julia and Chuck - Thanks for everything - we really enjoyed our stay. The house had all the right amenities - we enjoyed grilling dinner and loved the book selection provided in the house. Ethan enjoyed catching critters (eels, minnows, crabs, clams, etc) in the little inlet 2 blocks east of Bayview beach. We had a very productive whale watch out of Provincetown. We loved the Old Yarmouth Inn and also enjoyed Spark Fish in Brewster. We also had a nice Italian meal in Hyannis. Ethan developed a love for miniature golf - we enjoyed Thunder Falls and Pirates Cove in particular. The guest book was really helpful too! And the beach. Thanks again - supplies in the shed were perfect. Zooquarium was a hit too! Marla, Tom and Ethan Norton. Landenberg, PA. " - Marla Norton, PA, 07/30/05
"Julia and Chuck, Thank you for opening up this home to our family. We enjoyed staying here so much. All amenities and more were there for our use; you were very considered and thorough in providing for our needs. We especially appreciated the typed up information book about the beaches and this area and the beach pass! Sandy Neck was our favorite! We spent each day exploring the different beaches and the areas. We did not have enough time to do everything we wanted but just going to beaches was wonderful. My 15 year old nephew Val thought "the bed was very comfortable" and he liked the "paintings and artifacts". My 7 years old daughter liked touching the tassel on the front curtain, and the TV. Our dog Rosie appreciated being with us and she enjoyed the beach as well. Thank you for a very special vacation and your kindness. Sharon Kelley, Alexis, Val, and Rosie " - Sharon Kelley, MI, 07/23/05
"The house was great. We had a great relaxing vacation. Will certainly rent this house again in the future. Very clean, comfortable. Owners provided every possible amenity for the house and the beach. All kitchen and cooking stuff provided, nice linens, stuff for kids. Highly recommend." - Gary, Natick, MA, 07/19/05
"Thank you for making your vacation house so nice. I know you put a lot of heart into making our vacation special. Despite the weather we managed to do and see a bunch. From the first night we got here, we watched some awesome fireworks right from out deck, the seeing the cool sand dunes at "P. Town". We went to Boston for a day. We did walk the whole way of the Freedom Trail! We went to Foxboro to see the new "Patriots" stadium 2005 champion of Super Bowl! A must see for the men. (I just got a great meal out of that trip!) Despite the weather, we still had a great time. Now It's time to go back to Home Sweet Home to OHIO! Thanks again! The Johnson's Eric, Amy, Quinton, and Etham." - Amy Johnson, OH, 07/09/05
"09/03/05" - Dear Julia and Chuck, Thank you for a wonderful week of lazy days at the beach, beautiful weather, views of the harbor, kayak adventures, sail boat excursions and happy evenings making dinner, playing games, and - in one case - enjoying dog biscuits. The house was the perfect mix of a home and a beach cottage, and we loved our family vacation here. Homer especially sends his thanks.
