We ask that if you use these, that you wash, dry, fold, and put them away before your departure. There is also a large closet under the stairs loaded with all sorts of beach gear and chairs you are welcome to use. Please rinse off the sand and salt water before putting them away.
Outside is a gas grill for your use. Please cover it when finished using. The salt air is very harsh on anything left outside. We would like to prolong its life as much as possible. There is an outdoor shower and hose for you to use when coming back in from the beach or a day on the water. There are some stackable plastic chairs and a folding plastic table for your use, too.
We provide some basics to get you started on your stay, but you will probably need to bring some toilet paper and paper towels. We do not provide shampoo or conditioner or body gel. We provide a small bar of soap in each bathroom.
Feel free to message me with any questions or special requests!
You will have full access to the entire property except for two locked owner's closets.Additional notes

You are welcome to use the elevator, but please be VERY patient. It is slow and has specific instructions that must be followed for it to work properly. Couple of tips... make sure the inner and outer doors on all levels are closed or it will not work at all, when opening the outer door from inside the elevator, a little trick is to pull the door towards you and the push it open. Children under the age of 12 MUST NOT be allowed to ride alone or play with the elevator. It is a safety issue. You are responsible for ensuring the elevator is properly operated and not abused. It is very expensive to have the elevator repaired and serviced.
Internet is notoriously spotty on the Cape. It tends to go out periodically. We apologize in advance if this happens, but it is truly beyond our control.
I am always reachable via messaging or through the AirBnB app.Neighborhood overview
