About the property

Sleeps 5 With Lovely Views, Sounds Of The Ocean, And Plenty To See And Do.

This home has been recently renovated and includes lovely views of the beach and bird watching. This is a split duplex The master bedroom contains a queen sized bed and is perfect for a couple. The other bedroom contains a bunk bed (with twin mattress on top and full sized on the bottom) and a view of the ocean. The view is great and the sounds of the ocean can put you to sleep no matter how stressed you are. The living room includes a couch with a brand new flat screen smart TV. Also, the home comes with WIFI but no phone. All appliances are new and the range and oven are gas. Restroom includes a tub. The front yard has been raised and offers views of the beach while the back patio includes a picnic table and propane grill.

The home is located in a beautiful neighborhood with great year round neighbors as well as other guests. It includes 2 parking spots and access to a private beach, great public beaches, as well as a near by village that is great for running/walking. We personally love a walk through the village or around Lake Elizabeth.

There is so much to do in this part of the cape. Plus, it is in a convenient central location so you can get anywhere on the cape in under an hour. Ferries leave regularly for Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket from Hyannis or Falmouth. The MBTA also offers train service during summer months to Boston. Speaking of trains you should visit the Murder Mystery Dinner Train for some fun and mystery.

This is a pet friendly home that will be great for a family or some friends.

About Elisabeth Ricci

I live in Central Massachusetts and my family has owned this property since 1989.

Why Elisabeth Ricci chose Centerville

Great duplex cottages located in the heart of beautiful Cape Cod with private yards on private roads where children can bike, skate or play ball. These charming cottages are steps away from the beach which has warm salt water, great sand and gentle surf. Deeded beach rights allow you the privacy of a private beach or a lifeguard protected beach. They are near Hyannis, shopping, and boat docks to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. Historic Craigville Village with its 'ole Cape Cod' charm is within walking distance, as well as the famous 4 Seas Ice Cream Store and the Centerville 'penny' country store. Owner managed and maintained properties are well-suited for families. 'Seniors' like the laid back atmosphere especially in spring and fall when it is not so busy. If you enjoy sun bathing, body surfing in the ocean, building sand castles on the beach, romantic walks at sunset, or kite flying with your children, this is the place for you.

What makes this cottage unique

This home is in a very central location in Cape Cod. There is so much to do that you might spend years trying to do it all like I have. With the beaches, the book and antique stores, the museums and amazing restaurants, the boat access and the horseback riding, there is something here for everyone.

Great week in Cape Cod!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, clean sunny duplex. Only negative was that there was no washer/ fault I didn't notice this when I booked it. Ended up not really needing it but could be an issue for people renting longer than a week. I will definitely rent again next year!

Great Location by the Beach

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as advertised, a very clean, nicely located, smallish 2 BR, 1BA duplex right across the road from beautiful Craigville Beach. It was comfortable for 4 adults, but felt downright spacious once one couple left after 5 days. We will rent this property again for sure.

Sehr gute Lage und nette Vermieter

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten einen tollen Urlaub. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und die Lage zwischen Strand und Dorf ist perfekt. Auf Anfrage bekamen wir sogar Handtücher und Bettwäsche obwohl dies nicht üblich ist. Vielen Dank nochmals hierfür. Toll wäre eine Trockengelegenheit für Handtücher. Diese müssten wir auf provisorisch gespannten Seilen trocknen.

This little house was all were looking for!

  • 5 of 5

The house is very cute, perfect for a summer beach vacation as it is just across from the beautiful Craigville beach which is awesome when going with little kids as we can just walk down the street to get anything needed to and from the house to the beach, no car needed! Also very close to Main St in Hyannis, which has several places to eat and arcade for kids. The house fits a family of 4 very well, 2 adults and 2 kids. Nice kitchen to cook with all utensils needed and cable TV to watch after a long day at the beach. Place is per friendly as well so we were able to bring our little pooch and the private beach is pet friendly too! Homeowners were very nice and responded quickly to our needs, they also were super kind to hold my husband's wedding ring which we forgot at the house after we had left and will bring it to us, which is super nice of them. We really enjoyed our time there and wished we could stay longer. Will definitely recommend this place and we would be looking to rent it again next summer if available.

So much is close by it's hard to list it all. Here are some of my favorites.

Main St Hyannis, great shops and restaurants There is also an arcade and carousel 3.5 mi

Puff The Magic Cigar Lounge 3 mi. Say hi to Dave for me!

Cape Cod Beer 4.2 mi. The local beer is great! Tours and tasting. Beer events regularly.

Cape Cod Potato Chip Factory 5.3 mi. Best chips ever! Even better when you get to take some home from this family fun tour.

Cape Cod Winery, it's about 20 minutes away but worth a visit.

Four Seas (1 mi) World famous ice cream (and a nice sandwich for lunch) This ice cream shop has been here since 1934. Images of President Kennedy sitting outside with a cone has become of American iconography and my wife won't leave the cape unless she has had her cantaloupe ice cream.

Great Kite flying right across the street.

Provincetown is an hour away and totally worth the day trip!

The Melody Tent 2.5 mi has weekly headliner performances, check out their site!

If you like music you'll also love Cape Cod Symphony Orchestra.

I have been to sushi restaurants across the country, including Boston, yet the best I have had by far is Misaki Sushi less than 2 mi away and I have to visit each time I go to the Cape. Make a reservation for the full course chefs dinner. You will be served amazing foods that are not even on the menu. Their selection of Japanese whiskey and sake are unbeatable!

Hyannis has two ferries, you can take a trip to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard and have a vacation within a vacation!

Or take a trip deep sea fishing or world class whale watching.

If it rains there's still great things to do. We have a great movie theater and decent shopping mall with a Barnes & Noble. (3.5mi)

Even the choice for breakfast has many options, Persy's Place (3.6mi) and The Daily Paper (1.7mi). There's even an IHOP and Panera's a bit further away.

Want something a bit more mature? There are 2 nude beaches on the lower end of the cape. If that's your thing a day trip to Truro and Provincetown can get you all the sunburn on those sensitive areas that you can handle. The restaurants and shopping there are great. Not to mention the museums and people watching.

The cape has dozens of wonderful towns and villages for day trips, one of my favorites are Woods Hole, with great museums, an aquarium, boating expeditions to see the local sealife. Woods Hole is also the home to the now famous Woods Hole Film Festival July 26-August 2. Woods Hole is about 40 mi away.

The list just keeps going on and on. I have been coming here for 15 years and I still haven't seen all the good stuff.

Did I mention the golf? There are several great courses for all levels of experience. You may even end up rubbing elbows with a Kennedy. Oh the celebrities you may see. Try getting a picture of Taylor Swift for me!

I could go on and on. A good day for me would be going to Persy's Place with the family for breakfast, then spend the day playing golf or hitting great shops on Main st. Then in the evening meeting back up on Main st to see some street entertainment and blow off some steam at Puff The Magic or grab an ice cream.

I can't imagine a better place to spend a day, a week, or a month. Hope to see you there.
