This house is fantastic; highly recommended! I’ve been visiting the Cape for over a decade, and my friend has been visiting for nearly three decades, and we have rented many different homes and this one was the best! The house is well laid out (open concept and nice bedrooms), has amazing views, and is well stocked and comfortable. The location of the house is very good, it’s about 5 minutes from multiple beaches (Lecount, White Crest, Cahoon Hollow, Newcomb Hollow, bay beaches in town, as well as several ponds) and Wellfleet town center. The home itself is located on the marsh/bay, which is a great addition. There’s a short path from the house down to the water (we took beach chairs down to the water for happy hour several times). The living and dining room have many large windows and there’s a nice patio off of the dining room, all have great views of the yard, trees, and the water (one of the best views I’ve seen on the Cape). The house also has two outdoor showers and two hammocks. The house is well stocked and comfortable as well. We like to cook when we’re on the Cape and we were very happy with how well the kitchen was stocked with appliances and kitchen goods. The living room and dining room are also very comfortable, as well as the bedrooms and bathrooms. The house has air conditioning, which is nice to have, but the house also has one of the best breezes that I have experienced on the Cape. As someone who was flying to the Cape we were very happy with the beach items that were at the house, including seven nice beach chairs and many beach towels. The owners are very helpful and responsive. We had no issues during our stay, and when we did reach out, they responded within an hour or so. Overall, I would highly recommend this house and plan to stay again myself.

We absolutely love this home and had such a wonderful time. The house is gorgeous, very spacious, well stocked, beautiful artwork, and well decorated. The view is breathtaking and it was so relaxing to sit and take in the surroundings from the various terraces and even just from the enormous windows indoors. We loved cooking in the kitchen and it had everything needed. Kate was an excellent host and was very responsive to all questions. We hope to return next summer again.

A mid-century dream made of exceptional architecture, art and landscapes. Kate and Sam were dreams to work with - couldn’t have asked for a more perfect experience!

The Halfshell is fabulous! Gorgeous view, beautifully designed property, tranquil setting. The layout of the house was great for my husband, and our two small children, and my in-laws with room for privacy and family time. Being able to walk on the beach anytime of day was perfect; and the house is so nice we didn't mind the rainy days indoors. Excellent location for accessing all of Wellfleet, and short trip to Provincetown. Highly recommend.

A lovingly expanded, restored, and updated midcentury home overlooking the tidal basin at Paine Hollow. Spacious, open, airy, and bright, with breezes off the bay, the house is well-equipped, carefully maintained, and comfortable. It's especially ideal for two couples, having two "master bedroom" suites, and for anyone who enjoys the water on kayaks, paddle boards, or wind-surfers. The owners were attentive, helpful, and friendly before, during, and after our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this house and look forward to returning!

The view through the front door on arrival set the tone for our stay. The setting was beautiful and calming. The home was lovely, both in the honoring of its history and in the modern amenities. The hosts are gracious and responsive. We look forward to our return.

This is an extraordinary vacation rental. With lovely furnishings, original art work, and views from every room, the home was even more beautiful than the photos convey. The house was well equipped and comfortable for two couples and three adult children. The two master bedrooms, one on each side of the expansive ranch home, was the perfect set up for privacy. And the common areas (living room, kitchen, and dining room) offer plenty of space for 7 plus people.The location on the. tidal cove adjacent to preserved land and a short bike ride from the Cape Cod Rail Trail enabled one to set forth on adventures without even getting in a car. There is so much to explore in the Wellfleet area. But I found myself wanting just to sit looking out through the dappled sunlight filtering through the pine trees at the ever changing tidal cove. The owner was so responsive and helpful. She made us feel right at home. We plan to return!
