I also have a two bedroom 'Cottage' available right next door, as my home is a Duplex, and they may be rented together. See my listing: Five Beaches 'Cottage', Two Bedroom! NEW! BOTH 'COTTAGES' MAY BE RENTED AS ONE 'COTTAGE'! ASK FOR PRICE, or see listing under 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 kitchen, South Yarmouth, ma
My 'Cottage' is NEW from the foundation to the eaves. You will have the 'Cottage' all to yourselves, so come and relax! There is a full sized washer/dryer in the unit, ( Aah... no hauling dirty laundry home!) along with a dishwasher. All supplies are provided for both. A/C is window units at this time.
Did I say everything is new? This is my personal 'Cottage' so I have all the amenities. The bedroom has a good sized closet, not something you will find around here, as most of the homes/cottages are older. The couch is my favorite. It's a good futon couch and I've slept on it many nights. The kitchen is fully stocked with the basic spices and condiments. I provide the initial paper towels, soap, laundry stuff, spices, etc., for weekly Guests, and ALL supplies for nightly guests
As for access? I have installed a Keyless entry system so you never need to worry about losing your key on the beach, or hunting for it in the dark! Simply enter your personally chosen code, and you're 'home'!
The backyard has a full patio set, (table, chairs, loungers) along with a fire pit and large grill. (I've provided the initial fixins' for S'Mores!) There's a clothesline for your wet towels and suits, and a place to put your bikes/kayaks/canoes. There are also Bikes,
and helmets, for your use!
Interaction with Guests
Although I may not be there when you arrive, I do meet all Guests sometime during their stay. After that, I'll be there for you if you need me or want to chat, or give you your privacy. Simply let me know before you arrive. I'm always here to accommodate you and your needs...
It's a beautiful tree lined street, and so close to all sorts of activities and restaurants you can walk to most places. With the beaches so close at hand, it's a lovely place to go for a walk, or bike, or boat, or fish, or.....!
Just one very short block will bring you to Rte. 28 where Public Transportation is readily available, and the cabs are plentiful, although with the things happening around my 'Cottage', you probably won't bother with either!
Other Things to Note
I DO speak some French! A little anyway. I also speak some Spanish, and a dab of Italian. There are basic spices, condiments, sugar, flour, coffee, and tea already in the cottage, and I'll have milk, bread, juice and some sort of pastry waiting for you... NOTE> I provide only the initial start up for these things.
With respect for my home and my neighbors. I accept Dogs who have respectful Owners. There is a separate area for their needs in the rear of the yard. THE FEE FOR A PET IS $25/STAY/per Pet. This will be added on to the amount quoted as Airbnb doesn't have a place to add it as yet. Please no extra guests without my knowledge. I depend on the income from my little 'Cottages' to make ends meet. Thank you. The 'Cottage' will actually sleep four, as there is a great Futon couch in the living room. I have slept on it many nights, and can tell you it's a nice firm, comfortable, mattress on there.
I'm 67, single, originally from upstate New York. A charter motor coach driver for many years, now retired, I've stayed in many hotels and motels myself, so I know the value of a clean, pleasant experience when staying away from home. Plus, I've run both Hotels and Motels in Florida and California! I also owned and operated a restaurant and three catering businesses.
I'm a Weaver, great reader, (mysteries, paranormal, Regency type romances), have a 4 1/2 lb Yorkie named Emma (who doesn't give your allergies the hiccups! lol. ). A real "DIYer" (Do It Yourselfer), I bought and rebuilt my very first home from the ground up, literally, right here in Cape Cod, where I'm inviting you to come and stay!
Love to talk, socialize! My music is New Age, R&B, Jazz, Blues... pretty much smooth listening style.
I could never do without Popcorn, Poutine, Lobster (!), Sushi, Butter, Bread, Corn on the Cob, and last but not least, real Strawberry Shortcake!
I've always loved to travel, and I still do after all these years. My favorites? Hmm... Quebec for starters! Their zest for life is a joy! They are always celebrating something, like Carnival, the ice sculptures everywhere, the balls held in Ice palaces, and let me not forget Poutine, that delicious Quebec creation of fresh French fries and cheese curd covered with a brown gravy, or Chez Marie, the little wayside bread maker on the back road to Sainte Anne-De-Beaupre. Prince Edward Island has it's amazing patchwork quilt fields and friendly people, and the Calgary Stampede! Then there's the U.S., starting with Nashville Tennessee with it's wonderful music. Texas? Let's not forget the Alamo, the San Antonio River Walk, and Bar-B-Que.. San Diego with it's first rate Zoo and Abalone...Mackinaw Island in Michigan, no cars (or buses!) allowed here! AH! Dollywood where I met Dolly Parton. (You'd never recognize her!) A very different amusement park with a great twist. Let's not forget California's Big Sur and all the great amusement parks in Florida.
Since I suffer from severe motion sickness, I drive almost everywhere when traveling outside of my former job, although I have flown successfully.
I like to think of my little cottage as a type of self serve Bed and Breakfast, so I try to make sure there are yummy things to eat! Anything in the kitchen food or spice wise is yours to use. I always have soup handy for those times when you just need to warm your insides, and then, of course, there's the S'mores! I keep the cottage stocked during your stay, so if you run out of something, just let me know!
Hmm.. Airbnb says I should tell you if I have a Life motto, and I have two. "Pass it Forward", and "We are how we treat each other and nothing more."
