We’ve thought of everything! Our home is perfect for one family who wants some extra space or for that 2-family vacation with friends or relatives. Even a small 3-family reunion! This quiet yet conveniently located cape home in South Dennis has 2 bedrooms upstairs and 2 bedrooms downstairs. One family upstairs, one family downstairs or all the kids up and all the parents down; it works either way! This house says “family vacation” in so many ways!
This family-oriented house sleeps 10 people very comfortably on real beds in real bedrooms. No futons, no sofa-beds!
The first floor master bedroom has a king-sized bed with headboard and a wide-screen cable TV. The bedding is a premium memory-foam mattress for a great night’s sleep. Contemporary oak furnishing and beautiful decorating make this the perfect master bedroom.
The other first-floor bedroom has a premium queen memory-foam mattress that will also provide a wonderful night’s rest. Night stands and dresser, along with an oversized closet provide all the room you’ll need for your light summer apparel. Ample reading lights and cable TV provide everything you will need to rest from a long day at the beach.
The first floor bath features a full tub with dual shower heads for a luxurious shower experience. The tiled bath is fresh and clean. In addition, the amply sized outdoor double-shower (normal hot/cold water) is great for getting all that beach sand off of you and the kids. The private outdoor shower has 2 shower heads and a full-sized bench for adult relaxation. Our new on-demand Gas Hot Water heater means you will have unlimited Hot Water no matter how many showers you take. (We don't encourage you to waste water but you will never have a cold shower here!)
The second floor has two oversized rooms and a separate bathroom. The first bedroom upstairs can be configured two ways. It has 2 twin beds with matching antique headboards. These two beds can be easily converted to a king sized bed using the foam bridge in the closet. These beds, like all others in the house, are premium memory-foam mattress. So this room is perfect for two kids or two adults. It also has a couch, cable TV, and DVD player making this a perfect hangout for the kids on that rare rainy day or to hang-out while the parents unwind out on the screened porch. Two closets and two dressers provide all the storage you’ll need.
The 2nd upstairs bedroom has bunked twin beds and a full-sized bed. This room affords many possibilities including 1 to 4 kids or 2 adults plus 2 kids. This room has a dresser and closet for storage.
Upstairs rooms are carpeted while the downstairs rooms have rich darkwood laminate flooring. Besides the central air conditioning, all rooms have fans to assure a good night’s sleep for those occasional warm summer nights.
The upstairs bath is bright and inviting, featuring European inspired tiling, grand mirror, and nickel fixture accents. Great for adults, perfect for the kids. With two baths and three showers, this house can handle the kids getting back from the beach and the parents getting ready for a nice dinner at Clancy’s.
But why eat out every night when this house has so many dining options. The gas grill and well stocked kitchen means you can make that special Cape meal at home. Steaks or lobsters! Eat out on the picnic table (seats 6) or the umbrella table (seats 4-5), or the long glass-top table with high-back bench seats and end-chairs (seats 8-10), inside on the screened porch (seats 10), or inside at the dinner table (seats 6). The cupboards are fully provisioned with plates, dishes, kitchen gadgets, pot, pans, and bowls. You name it! Everything you’ll need to bake, broil, or blend (think frozen strawberry daiquiris to go along with fresh steamed mussels!).
Major kitchen appliances are upgraded for 2015 with a new self-cleaning gas range and topped with a new microwave/range hood combo. It vents outside to keep the kitchen nice and cool! The dishwasher is new and quiet. New jumbo stainless sink. All the cabinets are re-finished with all new doors and hardware. It's finished off with a nice glass accent tile on the oven backsplash, a brushed nickel lighting fixture, and a new accent light over the sink.
We have a philosophy we learned from many years of Cape rentals. It’s “need a spice, leave a spice!”. We have most of the spices that you’ll need right at the house. If you need something else, we encourage you to leave the extra spice on our spice shelf for the next person to enjoy.
Classic games! Whether you are a sports fan or a classic game fan, we have what you need. Red Sox, Yankees, English football, whatever; if it’s on HD cable, we’ve got your sports channels. We also have all the classic board games and playing cards. Nothing like some setback or Monopoly to bring the family together after sunset.
Our house is just minutes walk to the beach at Kelly’s Bay. It’s a great place to walk down to the water on this salt pond that is fed by the Bass River and leads to the ocean. Launch your kayak or just get your feet wet. It’s also perfect for that quiet walk in the morning to see the morning fog burn off on the bay or watch the evening sunset. Our house has a deeded pathway from the street right down to the bay. Bring your own kayaks and secure them in our fenced-in backyard or store them in the basement. It’s perfect for your bikes too!
If sports and exercise are part of your routine then you’ll just love our access to the Johnny Kelley Recreation Area which is just a short walk from the house. The park contains walking trails, ball fields, tennis and basketball courts and restroom facilities. Tennis with your spouse or a little two-on-two with your teens; it’s all just steps away. Or maybe a walk in the park after dinner to burn a few calories before heading off to Sundae School for that classic Cape ice cream treat.
The back yard is a great place for outdoor cooking and dining. With the entire area fenced, it’s perfect for families with kids and perfect for all your gear. Use the shed to store your stuff. We have a bocce ball set, a badminton/volleyball set, and a child-safe plastic horseshoe game for your enjoyment. The volleyball net is pro-quality but set a little lower to be family friendly.
Looking for a little more action indoors?... we have a playroom in the basement for older kids and adults with air hockey and foosball. It's just a basement but there are some comfy couches and chairs to watch the action.
Don’t carry those baby items on vacation! We have a pack & play (for house use only – NO beach sand please!!!) and a Graco high chair. We know how much hassle it can be to carry those things on vacation so we want to help out as much as we could. Laundry is in the basement. Nice electric dryer and washer.
The living room has a warm-wood feel that will tell you that you’ve found the right place to relax. The furniture is new and comfy. The open-beam rough pine ceiling is softly lit with a paddle fan to keep you cool. The living room and kitchen have an open floor plan so the entire family can be together during meal prep time. And the quick bowl of ice cream can be scooped without missing a single pitch of the Sox game.
While we all go on vacation to get away, most of us still want some comforts and a little entertainment options. When nighttime entertainment means family movie night, the living room TV has a flat screen with extended HD cable with Starz and Encore channels, 5.1 surround sound and a DVD player. Watch the Disney channel or bring your own movies. We also have a selection of over 20 movies ranging from classics, to kids, the recent box office hits. The TV has PC Video and DVI input so you can playback movies from your laptop! You can run Netflix from your laptop but remember to bring a cable for DVI input (you might need to bring your converter from HDMI). Of course, there is also CD, iPod, local radio station access on the 5.1 surround-sound receiver. The house is equipped with high-speed wireless internet (Wi-Fi).
When the kids are done for the night, the adults can still relax on the huge screened porch. Wine and cheese, fishing tales, or reliving the shot of a lifetime on the 18th green; nothing beats time with friends or just time with your spouse as the cool air and candlelight bring the night to a close. There are speakers on the porch connected to the music system inside. There are two ceiling fans on the porch to make sure that you'll feel cool. During the off-season, the porch has floor to ceiling windows for your comfort. The luxury porch furniture is complemented by a beautiful tiled floor.
This is a perfect family vacation home. Or maybe a "Girls Week" or off-season weekend? Or a wedding quest home. Quiet neighborhood, walk to Kelly’s Bay. We’ve made every effort to help make sure that our home can be your special vacation oasis. Please join us in South Dennis.
