Seconsett Island Cottage
Starboard Cottage #1
Mashpee, Cape Cod, Massachusetts



Enjoy your Cape Cod Vacation at our cottage in this quiet seaside neighborhood. Walk down the path to our private ocean beach that we share with several other homes. Have your coffee on our beach or cocktails in the open air on our rooftop deck overlooking the ocean bay. Enjoy the sunsets, and on a clear night, you can see the lights on Martha's Vineyard over Nantucket Sound.

Seconsett Island is surrounded by salt water and accessible by car over a causeway. (A causeway is an elevated road built over a body of water)... Scroll down to see the "Aerial views" of the island. We are located on one of the peninsula islands in Mashpee, just over the Falmouth border.

  • Beach Options - our small beach, walk to the larger neighborhood beach or take a 10 minute drive on back roads to South Cape Beach State Park
  • Since we are on one of the southernmost points of Cape Cod, the water is exceptionally warm , yet still refreshing (summer, usually in the high 70s)
  • After a day at the beach, enjoy the outside (hot water) shower.

This restful sanctuary by the sea is off the beaten path, yet so close to so many activities and attractions. It's only 5 miles or so to Mashpee Commons for shopping or fine dining. Golf courses are plentiful and not far away. Ferries are available in nearby Falmouth; about a 20 minute ride to the ferry dock.

Our yard is completely fenced in, giving you privacy and seclusion, so important for a relaxing vacation. The interior of our 3 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage is bright, clean and sunny. The dining room opens onto the ground level deck, for dining inside or out.

  • Linens provided for bedrooms and bath
  • Well supplied kitchen
  • Wireless Internet
