About the property

Spacious 5 bedroom, 2 bath on ocean side of town on quiet, wooded, cul-de-sac

Our ocean side 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom Eastham home is located on a quiet woodsy cul-de-sac near the Salt Pond Visitor Center of the National Seashore. The house sleeps nine and will comfortably accommodate everyone. The first floor has a queen bedroom with hardwood floors, a living room, a large open kitchen and dining room, plus a full bathroom with a washer and dryer. The second floor includes a large room with two twin beds, a smaller room with 1 twin bed, two bedrooms with a full bed in each, and a spacious bathroom. The home is decorated with original artwork by the owner's mother and others. There is a large wrap-around deck with a picnic table and lounge chairs where you can enjoy the 1/2 acre wooded property, a gas grill, an outdoor shower and a circular drive with plenty of parking. There is room for kids (and grown-ups!) to play.

Just steps from the National Seashore, we are a few minutes drive to either Coast Guard Beach or Nauset Light Beach. The ocean beach can also be reached by bike, a 30 minute walk, or a short shuttle ride. The Doane Rock Shuttle bus is accessible by a safe 10 minute walk on a path through the woods. We are convenient to Wellfleet, Provincetown, Orleans, the Cape Cod Bike Trail and the bay beaches and fresh water ponds of Eastham.

The house is perfect for multiple families or multiple generations. We’ve included a portable fold-out mattress for more flexibility in your sleeping arrangements. Enjoy a day at the beach, come home to your outdoor shower, and then relax on the deck before going to the nearby drive-in movie theater, a round of mini golf, or a delicious seafood dinner.

About Jose Polanco

Sharli and Jose dreamed of a home on the Outer Cape for years. Sharli spent her childhood in Wellfleet and Provincetown swimming in kettle ponds, exploring the dunes in Provincetown, and beachcombing on the bay. After falling in love with Sharli, Jose was lured by the rugged beauty of the Cape. They enjoy visiting multiple times a year with their two boys.

Jose Polanco purchased this house in 2013

Why Jose Polanco chose Eastham

The house is set back from the street and surrounded by peaceful trees. We love being so close to the National Seashore and the Salt Pond Visitor Center. Provincetown is a short 20 min drive.

What makes this house unique

We love being close to the National Seashore. The views at Coast Guard Beach are incredible!

Sensational vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of young adults and us had a wonderful week at the Polanco's home. Ideally located near both Sea and Bay beaches, comfortable and spacious, our vacation was made easy with everything you need to have in the house and more, on top of lots of information about where to go and what to do in the area. Attention to details combined with a 'feel at home' as soon as you come in the property. I would highly recommend and plan to return anytime, in fact as soon as possible !

Owner's Response: Always great feeling to hear that families enjoyed their stay at our home in Eastham. We work very hard to make it as comfortable, welcoming, and relaxing as possible. And, definitely strive to never lose focus on attention to details. Looking forward to sharing our home with you in the future, and please let us know any suggestions for improvements. Take care and be well. Jose & Sharli.

The house was as described, not disappointed at all!

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a nice quiet neighborhood, close to the Cape Cod rail trail that we rode or walked every morning before heading out to the beaches. When we arrived we found a nice welcome "pail" full of items we used during our stay there. Jose called the night of our arrival to make sure we were able to get into the house and all was to our liking. The house was nicely decorated, I especially enjoyed the family artwork displayed throughout the house. Our family enjoyed the deck and a nice size back yard where we played corn hole nightly. Overall this was a great house for a great family vacation!

Owner's Response: Very happy to hear you enjoyed your stay at our home in Eastham. Making your family's vacation as relaxing as possible in a comfortable home base is our goal. Since we began renting Sharli has put together the welcome baskets that everyone so much appreciates, and over the years we've added some of Sharli's mom's art. We hope to have your family visit us again in Eastham. Jose & Sharli

Another great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Jose and Sharli, we feel so comfortable in your home! We love the huge deck, great layout of the house, first floor laundry, huge kitchen, the "welcome bucket", fans and blankets (if needed) for each bedroom and the fact that it is so close to the National Seashore! We really appreciate all the communication! You contacted us before, during and after the vacation which really makes us feel welcome and also confident that if any question or issue came up it would be taken care of right away. My family and I would recommend this house in a heartbeat! The Polanco's are wonderful to work with and the property is so well cared for...this was our third year and we hope to keep coming back! Thank you so much!

Great family getaway

  • 5 of 5

Great location - easy access to Atlantic and Bayside Beaches, loved the fresh seafood cooked on the grill at the house. Had plenty of space for 3 adults, 3 kids, house had everything we needed - including some chairs for the beach. Jose was very communicative - answering questions and checking in to make sure everything was great! Thanks for a great long weekend.

Nearest Beach
0.5 Miles
Coast Guard Beach and Nauset Light
Car: recommended

'Cape Cod's Little Secret' (The New York Times) and 'Gateway to the National Seashore', Eastham is still considered a small town (population just under 5000) and is more quiet than most Cape towns. Eastham beaches offer gentle surf, soft sand, warm water and a beach that changes in appearance every few hours. An inlet on the bay, Eastham is home to the Cape's warmest water, thanks to shoreline stretching into the bay during low tide. Sandbars are heated by the sun in low tide and as the tide rolls in, the water heats up over the warm sand. Low tide is a great time to relax and read, while kids hunt for hermit crabs, minnows and other beach creatures in the clean, warm water tide pools. At high tide, Eastham beaches change completely, offering gentle surf and warm water, excellent swimming and kayaking. Very gradual elevation changes make an easy and safe water entry and exit for little ones.

Cape Cod National Seashore: The great “Outer Beach” of the Cape Cod National Seashore, on the ocean side of the lower Cape, is a protected beach within the National Seashore. Forty miles of pristine sandy beach, marshes, ponds, and uplands support diverse species from Orleans and Chatham to Provincetown. The surf might be a bit higher and the water is a bit cooler, but the scenery is fantastic, offering glimpses of sand dunes, lighthouses, landscapes, and wild cranberry bogs. The National Seashore includes six swimming beaches, 11 self-guided nature trails, picnic areas and scenic overlooks. Eastham beaches feature full bathhouses and changing areas.

Activities: Nearby you will find: biking, golf, fishing, whale watching, drive-in movie, flea markets, shopping, art galleries, miniature golf, hiking, kayaking, Audubon Center, Salt Pond Visitor's Center, Rock Harbor and more...most less than 5 minutes away!

Swimming: All Town Beaches on the bay with summer water temperature 60-70 F and ice cream truck frequent visits are ideal for young children.

Herring Pond (beautiful clean freshwater pond with sandy beach and public parking) - 1.1 miles, 4 min drive, 20 min walk.

Biking: Cape Cod Rail Trail is just 0.5 mile from the house, 4 minutes by bike

Hiking: The National Seashore offers plenty of self-guided walks in Eastham and in nearby towns. Most are easy enough for young children.

Birding: The National Seashore is a great place to see shore birds, and the Audobon Center in Wellfleet is only a few miles down Rt. 6.
