“Whale of a Time” is a private mini-estate located in a great area with everything you need to entertain the entire family and have a fabulous family vacation.  A beautiful home, amazing facilities, large sunny pool, easy access to Nauset Beach, walking distance to restaurants, bars, ice cream store and groceries. 

This 1920 Orleans home has been fully remodeled and redecorated. The home retains its original historic character while providing the highest level of modern amenities with high-quality custom upgrades including central air conditioning and modern bathrooms. Original oak woodwork brings character and charm; bright hardwood floors grace all the rooms. The kitchen/family room addition provides a modern, bright and open living space overlooking the sunny pool area. 

The outdoor facilities provide the setting, features and amenities to host the perfect family vacation. There is a large heated pool which enjoys all day sun. The pool area is surrounded by several comfortable seating, dining and gathering areas. Comfortable sun loungers on the pool deck, shaded outdoor sofas and armchairs under the pergola, outdoor bar and kitchen area, poolside dining table, sofas and armchairs gathered around the gas firepit for the evening and if you need to escape the heat, an air-conditioned sun room overlooking the pool area. So many choices and options for the family to be together.

The outdoor kitchen has a gas BBQ with a side burner. Enjoy meals together out on the pool deck with dining and seating for everyone. Choose to sit at the full dining table or at the outdoor bar and watch your chef prepare your made to order omelet! Breakfast, lunch or dinner, the patios around the pool offer numerous options to dine al fresco.

Kids need to burn some energy? How about a game of ping pong on the outdoor ping pong table? Or perhaps a game of badminton or volleyball on the huge lawn; the grassed area is even large enough for a family game of wiffleball.

Would you like to sit out by the pool but keep your eye on the game? Enjoy the 55” HD TV mounted next to the outdoor bar. The under-counter ice maker and insulated ice bin will supply all the ice you need to keep beverages chilled all day. Sit at the bar, enjoy a cold drink, cook dinner at the outdoor kitchen, watch the game on TV, all poolside! In the evening, gather the family at the comfortable seating area around the gas firepit. The pool area, patios and outside facilities are truly exceptional

Nauset Beach is one mile away. When you get home from your day at the beach, enjoy the outdoor shower before the fun continues around the heated pool, patio bar, outdoor kitchen and ping-pong table, volleyball/badminton net, outdoor porch, inside pool table and outdoor fire pit to extend the enjoyment into the evening. Put it all together and you have the perfect home to provide hours of entertainment for the whole family.
