This home is represented by Nauset Rental, a local vacation rental management company.

Classic Nauset Heights home sitting directly on the bluff with magnificent views of Nauset Beach, the Atlantic Ocean and Nauset Marsh. Short walk to inlet and ocean beaches. Vintage, rustic cottage character in unbelievable location. Great value for view. Wooden farmhouse style floors throughout except for Kitchen and Bath. Rustic cottage kitchen has updated appliances. Outdoor shower to rinse the salt and sand off after a day at the beach. Great front porch with dining seating for 8. A great place to enjoy morning coffee/ breakfast, an afternoon read or cocktails on the deck.

The location and views are simply one of a kind. Spellbinding water views-nearly 180 degrees- from Nauset Harbor and the channel all the way to Coast Guard Beach in Eastham, over The Inlet to Nauset Beach and the Atlantic. One of the first dwellings on The Heights, this charming vintage bungalow on the bluff represents all that was ideal in summer living since 1900. For many, it is still so today. Trailer a boat around to Priscilla Landing on Roberts Cove for deep-water access. On the ocean-side use the Association stairway down to meandering sandy pathways through the beach grass for access to both sides of the spit. Some may cherish this antique cottage just as it is, with its enormous great room, vaulted ceilings and original wavy-glass windows. Others may enjoy the spectacular lawn and views, either way it's a magical place to be.

Thank you again for the opportunity to stay. We have been renting this home for five years now. We cherish our stay here. Not too long before we started renting this home, we lost our son due to a tragic accident. We searched for a place to escape and find peace. This house has given us a gift of peace, love and happiness. It is difficult to explain but we know our son is with us each year when we return. Our friends, Ken's friends visit and our hearts are full of hope and peace. We are reminded that life can be beautiful and love and friendship never die. This house has given my family so many beautiful memories . We look forward to renting again next year. Thank you again. This home has given us a piece of our son that we cherish.

Great service, clean website, everything was simple.
Overall it was a great house. You definitely pay a view premium but that was expected. Location was great, dog friendly was perfect for us, etc. .Again, great week for the family and we'd definitely consider returning.

They're all very nice, especially Devin, coming out in the middle of a storm to look at the grill gas tank that was leaking.
Water view was even better than the pictures, the house was clean, and had enough room to comfortably accommodate my family of four and our two dogs.

Nauset Rental place in Nauset Heights is awesome, with great views and a yard that entertained 3 toddlers for hours on end. The living space itself accomodated our large group. With the inlet right there and beach just beyond it, you have the benefit of calm waters for kids, or the busier, bigger beach on the ocean. We hope to stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at this house. The location was ideal with access to both the inlet and outer beach. It was truly a Cape cottage with all the necessities covered. The outside shower was appreciated with kids and dogs and lots of sand. My husband and kids made good use of the front porch and lawn, too. Overall, it was a great experience.

The view from the front porch/yard is every bit as great as in the pictures. A very peaceful/serene setting, yet close to everything (walking to harbor/ocean beach, quick drive to Orleans/nature trails/etc). The house itself was functional, but had everything we needed for a relaxing low-key long weekend (grill, stocked kitchen, plenty of seating in and out), and the bed was more comfortable than it needed to be. Nauset rental was great to work with -- arrival was a breeze, Kent provided a number of good recommendations for places to explore in the area, and checked in with us during our stay to make sure we had what we needed for a chilly day. We'd definitely come back!
