This two bedroom cottage is about 225 steps from
the top of the dune that leads down to the ocean at LeCount Hollow
Beach in the Cape Cod National Seashore. This beach is also know
as "Maguire's Landing."
Located in a pine grove, this cottage has one bedroom with a queen size bed and a second bedroom with two twin (single) beds.
The single bathroom has a shower and there is also an enclosed outdoor shower with hot and cold water. The cottage's water is heated by a tank-less, on-demand water heater (very energy efficient). The kitchen
has a 4 burner electric stove with oven and broiler, full size refrigerator, stainless steel sink, microwave oven, toaster, coffee maker, pots and pans and dishes.
Outdoors by the cottage, there is a charcoal
BBQ, picnic table and clothesline. Nearby, we have a building with coin-operated washers

We had the very best time. The quant space, scenic location was incredible. We loved being so close to the beach, and a short drive to the harbour.
Only thing that was a negative had nothing to do with the cottage. I didn't realise how unfriendly the location can be for dogs, and didn't realise
that ticks were such an issue. However, we were prepared for that, and it in no way dampened our most incredible stay. Our property managers were
above an beyond with customer service and professionalism. The added bonus for being a part of this stay, the unexpected gifts we received, and were
where so appreciative of it. The amenities so close to us, the bike trails, the roads for running.... all top notch. Thank you so much for taking us
on as tenants. We had the best time on our honeymoon. Thank you from your Canadian newlyweds. --AmyN Manotick, Canada

This is the third year we have vacationed at the BeachComber cottage and it was again a delightful time. The cottage is always clean and has everything
we could possibly need. The location is just steps away from the beach. No need to pack for the entire day, as we can run up to the cottage for a quick
lunch or anything else! Armand is always quick to greet us upon our arrival and full of useful information such as great restaurants and other activities.
We hated to leave and look forward to another stay with Surf Side Cottages next year! ---Elizabeth, Erie, PA
“Home away from home- and the best beach ever!”
4 of 5 stars
Steps away from the sand and surf, this cottage was right next to one of the best beaches in the us. The manager was incredibly helpful, welcoming
and friendly, we felt very much at home. The bathroom was rather small (not that big of an issue), the beds could have been more comfortable, but the
kitchen was great, all of the amenities we could have wanted to make our stay super convenient. This cottage is in a great location, if you can pull
yourself away from the beach there are a number of stunning biking and walking trails, and of course a great French bakery up the street!--Canadian family
“Perfect Wellfleet Cottage right at Lecount Hollow (Maguire's Landing)”
5 of 5 stars
This cottage is perfect for enjoying the Cape Cod national seashore in a super relaxed manner. Instead of packing up all you need for an entire day at
the beach only to arrive at a full parking lot, this place lets you walk down to what i think is the most gorgeous ocean beach on the outer cape in only
2 minutes (down a sand path and across just about 50 yards of parking lot). So you can sip your coffee at the beach early watching seals play in the surf,
then come back for swimming a bit later, go make lunch on the grill at the cabin, then back for boogie boarding or surfing then back to the cabin for
dinner and then a long walk in the evening on the beach at sunset: no car or parking permits ever involved. We have stayed here for years, the couple
that runs the rentals are super nice and instantly responsive if ever any issues arrive, the cabin is charming and old cape retro in style inside but
still super clean and nice. Even a fireplace for chilly evenings if you are there in the fall (although also a modern gas heater).
There are other cabins all clustered around you, but they seem to rent to families and in general very quiet and respectful people so it has always been
easy to sleep-in in the morning in peace and quiet if you are looking for that.
If you like to swim and walk the beach and watch seals or just spend quiet days in a hammock with a perfect ocean breeze, this place is idyllic.
I Highly recommend staying here or at any of the other cabins in this property. --- A reviewer from Boston
“Great start to summer vacation!”
4 of 5 stars
We rented the beachcomber Memorial Day weekend and it was located steps away from beach. The cottage was clean and cozy. Outdoor grill and picnic area
were key, as we grilled every night. The cottage was recently renovated and cell service/internet access was great! Nice flat screen television and
working fireplace. Outdoor shower was beneficial as indoor shower was a bit cramped. Armand was available and accessible at any hour for questions and/or
concerns. Overall great stay! ---A reviewer from Middleboro, MA
“Awesome stay at a Quaint Cottage”
5 of 5 stars
The location is outstanding. Literally 2 minute walk to the beach. I can see this would be an excellent summer rental. We like to go off-season so we can
bring our dogs and for the solitude. Awesome place to bring families with kids and pets. This would also be an excellent place for a romantic/couples
vacation. The service was outstanding. Armand & Lisa were always available to help/take a call, but totally not intrusive. So service gets an a+.
The home was so cozy. We loved the fireplace and the wood interior. We made a fire each night. There is a flat screen TV with Direct HD TV, which was
great, but we really didn't need it. We loved having a full kitchen with all the cookware, etc. Bedrooms were cozy. No complaints. (The lighting in
the bedrooms is very dim - so those would have problem with that, we didn't, may not like so much.) Ample closet space, etc.
The only thing we didn't love was the water pressure in the shower, but that was really negligible, and may not be something that can be helped.
And the only other thing was the couch & chairs in the living room, they were more suited for outdoor furniture, but again negligible. Perhaps a table
out on the porch area would be nice. But again, these things were no big deal, just suggestions. So, home for us gets an a.
You cannot beat the location, proximity to the most beautiful ocean on the Cape and right in the middle of the Cape, across from Welfleet.
You can go to Ptown or Orleans / Brewster very quickly (well in the off-season). Plus, close to bike trails.
I really can't say enough good things about our stay. Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.
Loved being in the middle of this natural area. So many birds and things to look at.
We would definitely highly recommend based on property, service, and location. We plan to return in the fall or spring (so we can bring the dogs again).

This was a very enjoyable vacation. The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortable, with a kitchen well-provided with crockery, cutlery, and equipment.
The dark-stained pine panelled interior, gas heater, and a wood-burning fireplace made the house cozy in the evenings. The Atlantic is about 300 yards
away so we could hear the ocean at night. The dunes and pines kept off the full effect of the winds but there was always a refreshing breeze. The services
and management were excellent. Friendly, available, and helpful staff. For beach access, it's a hard location to beat, and it's fairly close to the
village of Wellfleet. There's also a general store somewhat closer. Also a short distance are kettle ponds for safe swimming. Nestled in the pines,
this particular cottage for some might seem a little dark in the afternoon, and there is no direct ocean view. However, the best feature is proximity
to the ocean (just walk over the dune) combined with simple comfort. What I liked least was having to leave. ----Regulator, Canada
“Basic but Idyllic”
4 of 5 stars
We really enjoyed our week at Beachcomber. The location is really terrific, genuinely only a three minute walk to the beach. And nearby Wellfleet really
must be one of the prettiest communities on the outer Cape, with the stores and souvenirs you need. We could have spent another whole week
exploring the area and other beaches and ponds without getting bored. But we just went to the beach most days. Every person we met could not have
been friendlier or more helpful. Nearby Moby Dick's restaurant and the Wellfleet Drive-In Cinema (the last in Massachusetts, great value double
bills too) are well worth a visit, and there are a couple of good mini (UK 'crazy')-golf courses too. Car essential. Provincetown is about a 15/20
minute drive away, more touristy and crowded, but great for two things - the fried dough (doughnuts) at the Portuguese Bakery, and going on a
Whale Watch with the Dolphin Fleet - superbly organised and simply astonishing: we had 15 hump back whales going around and under the boat, at various
times. Not having air conditioning or TV in the cottage did not bother us at all - that's not what we came to Cape Cod for. For couples
or former backpackers, perhaps now with one or two (at most) primary school age children, used to going basic, this would be fine, though it is
perhaps the smallest of Surfside Cottages properties. Because Surfside Cottages are inside the National Coastline Park, the properties cannot be
refurbished by law, and the sixties interior decor is perhaps a bit wood- panelled and dark for such a small place, but then how much time did we or
would anyone here spend indoors, apart from the late evening, and sleeping? Best things: the location, the area, the people, the beach; our
only slight reservation is the interior decor, but, as explained, there's nothing anyone can do about that, and only if the weather was very bad for
a whole week might this become a drag. We'll definitely be back. And will recommend Surfside in general to friends ---Ken and Magda, Scotland
