Spend your vacation in an absolutely spotless, pristine, luxurious, romantic cottage surrounded by gardens and directly on a freshwater pond.

Centrally located, the Breeze is within walking distance to Arnold's restaurant, mini golf and the Salt Pond Museum and Visitor Center. Take one of the bikes provided and hop on the Cape Cod Rail Trail (the bike path) which is just down the street. Walk to the Coast Guard Beach shuttle or follow the bike trail to Coast Guard Beach, less than 2 miles from your door to the National Seashore.

After enjoying your day at the beach, come walk down the dock and sit in an Adirondack chair and watch the birds as they swoop over the pond looking for nibbles. Listen to the frogs sing or launch the canoe we provide to take a tour around the pond and see what wildlife you can spot or if you can catch any fish. We also have a floating picnic table!

How about lighting a fire in the fire pit with the wood we provide. Have a gourmet s'mores party or just enjoy each other's company by the fire. Wash off the day in the warm water of the outdoor shower, try some of the spa amenities provided, then crawl into the bed that has been outfitted for a Queen. Swaddled in high quality, super soft sheets, the queen size bed is a pillow top mattress with an additional state-of-the-art gel cooled pad and padded mattress cover to provide for the best night sleep ever.

The Breeze is a separate cottage that is connected to the main house by a breezeway on the backside which serves as an outdoor shower. We live in the main house and respect our guests privacy at all times. However, we are available, if needed, to answer any questions.

* A custom state-of-the-art house guide with recommendations is provided for your visit.

* One Queen Ultra Comfortable Luxury Bed for 2 people. We do not have cots or extra beds and do not recommend anyone sleeping on the floor. If you have more than 2 people then this exquisite place may not be the best fit for you.

* We provide high quality linens.

* We are just over a mile to Coast Guard Beach shuttle lot (walking) or you can take one of the bikes.

* Bikes and canoe provided

* Wood & kindling for fire pits provided

* Sandy toes and beachy hair guaranteed

Great stay!

What a wonderful little gem! My husband and I really enjoyed the cleanliness of the cottage and all the little surprises that came along with this rental! The amenities were wonderful. The dock at the pond is adorable. The owners are so kind. They offered us advice and tips for our stay. I have nothing but great things to say!

We are so glad you chose The Breeze to help celebrate your anniversary. We loved having you and hope that you can stay longer the next trip! Thank you!

Wish we could have stayed much longer

My husband and I just got back from a week stay at Tara’s cottage, and we wish we could have stayed much longer! The cottage is cozy and comfortable, with everything you could need for a trip to the Cape. We loved the huge deck, and really enjoyed having daily coffee (and sometimes afternoon cocktails) on the Adirondack chairs out on the pond behind the house. We had a great time watching the dragonflies and the birds swooping (including a few hawks, and a great blue heron), and listening to the bullfrogs croak. We were worried there might be a lot of bugs, but it was not buggy at all - we only had to use the mosquito spray once during our stay, when we were out on the deck after dark. Tara and Chip provide everything you could need for a wonderful stay - full kitchen, TV, WiFi, air conditioning (which we were grateful for during the heat wave on our first couple days). The outdoor shower is awesome (and the indoor bathroom is huge), the bed is comfy, and the cottage is peaceful and quiet. Everything is nicely decorated, and it felt like staying at a hotel! From soft bedding, to great towels (including beach towels), to toiletries and kitchen staples, we were met with everything we could want. Tara even left us homemade cookies when we arrived, and a thoughtful basket of snacks - plus bottles of water and chocolates by the bed. She and Chip also have beach chairs you can borrow, along with bikes as well. We enjoyed grilling on the deck, and made quite a few trips to Arnold’s (located within walking distance) for fried clams and ice cream. Overall, we had a great stay with lots of thoughtful and useful touches throughout. Tara and Chip are super friendly and welcoming and we’re wonderful hosts. We look forward to renting from Tara again!

Fantastic area.

My wife and I spent a week in June, 2019. This cottage played an integral part in making our vacation very special. This is a fantastic place to stay, to rejuvenate, and to forge lasting memories with family and friends. Beautifully designed, this cottage provides a sense of one with nature without compromising the comforts of modern life. A special thanks to Tara & Chip. They ensured that the cottage was well stocked not only with necessities but also with creative treats to keep their guests engaged and entertained. My wife and I had a marvelous time, and we are grateful to the owners for making it possible. We would recommend this place to anyone who is interested in taking time off to relax and to explore the outdoors.

Tara has thought of everything! It was just very sweet and thoughtful. We were on the go a lot exploring the cape, and it was great coming back to a place that felt like home at the end of the day. Also we were very far from home and anyone we knew. It made it much easier knowing we had such kind and helpful host Incase we needed anything. Hope to stay with them again when we come back!

Tara and Chips place was amazing, clean, private and an overall relaxing environment. We made fires every night at the fire pit and she even had things to make smores. The best was super comfortable. We even used the canoe which was so much fun. We definitely stay there again!!

5 Year Wedding Anniversary

My husband and I came to Cape Cod as part of our 5 year wedding anniversary trip and just wanted to relax and recharge. Tara's place was the perfect oasis! Tara greeted us upon arrival and gave us the. lay of the land along with some wonderful recommendations. We enjoyed breakfast and lunch from the beautiful deck, took bikes down to the beach and lighthouse, chilled on the private dock and even fell asleep on the porch under the stars! The airbnb was so perfect and Tara left some beautiful, thoughtful touches which we so appreciated. We will be back!!

Absolutely Amazing

Tara & Chip are both absolutely amazing. Tara welcomed us to the house with a tour and tips for local beaches, cafes, etc. She surprised with a gift of all the makings for s'mores for the fire pit. She truly couldn't have been more thoughtful or generous. We happened to have a glitch with our car while we there, and Chip helped us out with that. They are phenomenal hosts. I couldn't recommend their place more highly. We are already planning our trip back there for next summer!

Second Year

This was our second year staying at Chip and Tara's. It was just as rejuvenating as our first year! Close to wonderful beaches and the bike trail. We got out on the pond a few times and sat on the dock many times! Rental is bright and airy! Recommend highly.

Long time renters

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Tara’s cottage. As long time renters at the Cape I can say with certainty that Tara’s cottage provides everything you need for a true Cape vacation. Tara has an eye for detail and even leaves a welcome gift! We especially enjoyed relaxing on the deck with coffee in the morning and a drink late in the afternoon while enjoying the breeze from the pond. We highly recommend a stay at Tara’s!
