Why Mark Grip chose Cape Cod

I have vacationed on the Cape all my life. Eastham is the closest to the old Cape feel we could find, close to both the bayside and Oceanside beaches with the choice of freshwater ponds too to float on an inner tube. Salt air, peace and quiet, yet close to night life and shopping. This is our little piece of the Cape, a haven to re-charge and we keep it not as a business, but a home.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage is unique as it is set away from all the others in the complex, with complete privacy and plenty of space between neighbors. The cottage is on a sand 'U' shaped road with a large grassy area across from the cottage. Safe for children and reminiscent of Olde Cape Cod. The back yard is completely private, great place to read or barbeque.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous stay at your wonderful, cozy and quiet cottage. All we need, you have it in your well equipped cottage and it is appreciated. We had very good time in Cape Cod with the beautiful beaches and the sunny days. It’s a very good place to take vacations.

Comfortable cottage

We had a fantastic time at this petite home away from home! When we arrived, the cottage was clean and just as it appeared in the pictures. Everything worked out well. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone that is staying 2-4 people. The owners were very helpful and accommodating as well!

great stay!

our family spent a week in cap cod and we loved this cottage. close to all kinds of different beaches, mini golf, walking trails and bike path... and the outside shower was ideal to rince off sand and salt.

it was quiet and peaceful but also allowed space for our children (7 & 9) to kick their soccer ball around while we made dinner... compact but efficient not to mention sparkling clean, this a holiday spot we are already longing to get back to!
