"3 Boardwalk" is our dream come true: a luxurious yet comfortable and child-friendly four-season home on 2.9 acres overlooking salt marsh conservation land and the ocean of Cape Cod Bay. A four minute walk to Boardwalk Beach, and another 4 minutes to the beautiful (and newly replenished) Town Neck Beach, you can kayak from the backyard, take a plunge off the famous Boardwalk footbridge, go tubing or paddling in Mill Creek, or spend the day on the beach sunning, watching boats come and go from the mouth of the Cape Cod Canal. Play a game of Bocce on our private court, freshen up with our enclosed outdoor shower, sit on the deck watching the boats go by or reading one of the many good books in our collection. Hungry? Walk to Sandwich Village in less than ten minutes for restaurants and cafes, or fire-up the barbeque and grill some fresh lobsters. Top the evening off roasting marshmallows around the fire pit.
Our 3400 square foot waterfront home is lovingly decorated with many oriental rugs, fun antiques and original pieces of art--all collected by us personally. The first floor has a modified open floor plan with a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen, a butler’s pantry with wet bar, a dining room with a handcrafted shaker-style cherry table with seating for 8, a large living room with a gorgeous beach-stone fireplace and a tavern-style game table, a separate family room with a 58-inch flat-screen HDTV and Blu-ray, a small office with a roll-top desk and laser printer/scanner/fax, and a bathroom with an extra-large shower. A large deck spans the entire length of the house looking out on the marsh, the dunes, and the ocean, and there are sliding doors in both the living and dining rooms, offering breathtaking views of the sun as it rises over the water.
Upstairs are four-bedrooms, including a King-size master suite with a balcony overlooking the water, a sitting room with built-in bookshelves, fireplace, 47-inch flat panel TV, and Blu-ray DVD; a separate dressing room; and a bathroom with double sinks, a luxury 2-person jacuzzi-bath, and a separate shower. The Queen-size bedroom also has a balcony overlooking the water, with one of the best views in the house of sunrise! There are two more lovely bedrooms, each with a set of twin beds, and one with an alcove bearing a “hidden” set of bunks for the kids. There is a third, very large bathroom with double-sinks, full bathtub and shower.
The front yard is professionally landscaped with room for volleyball or croquet; the side yard has a bocce court and patio with firepit, and the backyard is fenced in for your dog (with prior permission) beyond which is the marsh and ocean.
Our house is equipped with AC, WiFi, Bluetooth sound system, washer/dryer, outdoor furniture, books and games, barbeque grill, outdoor shower(s), doggie door to fenced yard, and bocce court.
"3 Boardwalk" is our dream house-- we truly hope it becomes your dream house, too!

We had a wonderful amazing time in Sandwich, MA! The house we stayed in was perfect and spotless! We also loved all the decorative style of the home! The house was incredibly user friendly for a renter. We cooked primarily at home and the kitchen was well stocked with everything that we needed. We ate on the deck and had incredible views of the marshland view each night. Everything worked out amazingly well and it was the perfect get a way to start off the summer. It is near water but the ocean is farther away than we had thought. But the house makes it incredibly easy to get to the marshland for kayaking or the ocean for the day!
So glad you enjoyed your stay! I'm sorry you felt the ocean was farther away than you'd expected. It's .37 miles (an 8 minute walk sez Google maps) to the ocean, and half that to Boardwalk Beach.
The decision to re-book for next year was pretty much a lock within 3 hours of our arrival. There is not much more to say regarding how well "3 Boardwalk" suited my family. If you are considering this home and like what you "see" you will not be disappointed. We thought the website renderings were beautiful but reality proved they were understated. The true charm, beauty and comfort of this property and setting easily exceeded our expectations. The owners couldn't have been more gracious and accommodating. Simply put , This was a wonderful and far too short an experience ! Thank You Margot and Don, for sharing your beautiful home.
Thank you for being such great guests! We are totally delighted that you so enjoyed your stay at 3 Boardwalk and look forward to seeing you again next year. Pax, Margot & Don
