Description from owner

30 Steps to the beach!

A South facing 800+ square foot Cape Cod style 2 level home (1st and 2nd floors, no basement) with lots of windows, sliders, & decks. The Little Neck comfortably accommodates up to 5 people and is about 30 steps to the beach. Our private bay beach has relatively warm water, gentle waves, and no riptides to worry about.

Great place for kids. Explore the adjacent Cape Cod National Seashore, listen to the birds sing, walk to Great Island at low tide, swim or kayak there at high tide, collect shells, swim, relax, at night - watch the moon over the water, listen to the waves.

Common laundry.

New for 2017: 2 Kayaks! One easy to use 2- person sit-on-top ocean kayak + one 1-person sit-on-top ocean kayak are included in the rental.

Layout: 1st floor: Rear bedroom with queen bed. Front bedroom with 2 twin beds. 1st floor front open den with futon sofa. Small HDTV with DVD. Full bathroom. Outdoor shower. Front deck. Back deck.

2nd floor: Open layout kitchen/living/dining area with full water view. Futon sofa convertible. Large HD TV with DVD and Netflix, and broadband wireless internet. Fully equipped kitchen. Full bathroom (shower, no tub). Front deck with gas grill, table, chairs, and full view of the water.

Our Sea Shells' private sandy beach is a calm and clean bay beach. It is similar to Mayo, but private, quiet and closer to Great Island. A 25 minute walk along the beach brings you to Wellfleet Pier. There you'll find restaurants, picnic tables for the take-out window (burgers, fried clams, ice cream), boat rentals and boat excursions. Walking down the beach in the other direction brings you to the Chequessett Yacht & Country Club where sailing lessons are offered. Continuing on this beautiful walk, you reach the mouth of the Herring River where it's possible to watch the sun set over the "Gut," a dramatic spit of sand joining 2 former islands - Great Island and Griffin Island - now part of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Perfectly adequate for a chance to get some writing done. The cottage is very clean. everything works, and there is a pleasant view of the harbor. The houses are very close together.

It was a perfect cottage for our wedding weekend! The house was charming and yet roomy. I loved the screened in porch and the fact we could walk to Mac's Shack! Highly reccomend this home for a Wellfleet get away.

“Great week!”

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Little Neck and can't wait to go back! The cottage was spotlessly clean upon our arrival and it just got better from there. Amazing views, great beach and everything you need right on hand to make your stay an easy and memorable one. The cottage also comes with a kayak which we made good use of, as well. The bay is a nice calm place for beginners like us. We especially enjoyed all that Welllfleet has to offer. Loved it!!

Little neck is the well kept secret. My stay was excellent, could not have asked for a better place, the ocean view superb, sun rise and sunset, excellent. Everything is as stated and even more. I felt I was on an island just by myself. Serene peaceful, Littleneck restful, the locals: awesome people. Weather very cooperative. It was like summer time. Well!! the word's out. I hope I still get it for when next I plan to be there. Ample parking, for visitors too.
