This private setting is in a gorgeous estate neighborhood that is surrounded by water, perfect for those early summer morning and evening walks, with beautiful vistas everywhere. Your private beach is just a short stroll away, shared with 2 families. Bring your boat, as there's a launch area next to the beach, too! Visa / MC accepted.

NEIGHBORHOOD & DOWNTOWN: 'HIGHWOOD' is located in a very exclusive neighborhood where other houses rent for twice the price w/o beach rights. It is modeled after the classic NE design of the 'Half Cape', and is well off the street for privacy and safety for children. It has very comfortable furnishings and mattresses. The backyard has a tall privacy hedge, and a large dining table, garden area and gas grill. Linger over dinner under the umbrella next to the flowers or eat out on the screened porch with candlelight to welcome the evening with family and friends. All necessities are included, such as linens, towels, laundry detergent, t.p., all kitchen gadgets,small appliances, spices, etc.. An outdoor hot and cold shower makes coming in from the beach mess-free and fun!
This section of North Chatham is the most exclusive, beautiful and quietest available, unlike the noisier, high traffic in-town area, which is still easily accessible by bike, being less than 2 miles away.
THE BEACH: Out of the driveway to the left past a handful of beautiful homes and an estate is the private beach at the end of Cotchpinicut. A wagon is provided to make transporting little ones and lunch easy. It has a new, large and sandy shallow area formed over the winter which is wonderful for children. Bring your kayak, or launch your small motor boat at the landing. The outer beach is right across the water, a quick 5 minute boat ride to the best beach in the Northeast. Great surfcasting on the ocean side, so don't forget your fishing poles!
