The Idle Wave is a 1940’s beach cottage filled with classic Cape Cod cottage charm. Rich wood built-ins, comfortable interiors made for lounging and relaxing, and plenty of space to have fun under the sun. Enjoy a glass while watching the beautiful sunsets over Cape Cod bay from famous Campground Beach. Take your shoes off and make yourself at home because being comfortable and relaxed is what it is all about at The Idle Wave.

Let's take a step back in time to 1940 when a group of friends purchased a bunch of land and built cottages all next to each other in order to spend their summers together with their families on the beaches of Cape Cod. Years passed, families grew up and left for other places. Houses were sold, new faces moved in. But one family and their bungalow remained. The Idle Wave. The lustrous wood of the built-in closets, cabinetry, and cubbies still gleam with polish. The drawers built into the walls still have a sheen to them. From the tide clocks to tell us when to go clamming, to the Captains wheel light in the sweet kitchen, the bungalow makes everything feel more simple, easy, and family centered.
Wake up to the sound of seagulls overhead and take your coffee out to the large front yard and relax in one of the Adirondack chairs while the kids gather around the table for their breakfast. Just fill the provided picnic basket with snacks for the day and walk to the end of the driveway where you will find the staircase to take you down to Campground Beach. Spend the day splashing in the waves, take the canoe out, float on a raft or two, try wave skimming or boogie boarding all of which are at your disposal. Don't worry, the house is only around 100 steps away so you can come and go as you please. When you are done in the sun, step into an oversized outdoor shower to wash the salt off. Dinner on the grill couldn't be easier with a brand-new Weber gas grill. Let the kids play with all of the toys in the large toy box while you cook dinner. When dinner is ready, serve it up on the large picnic table, the round table, or take it down to the beach and eat with your toes in the sand!
After tucking the kids in bed, the front porch is a great place to relax with a fireplace heater for chilly nights (or ambiance), adorable LED lights for indoor starlight, and a Bose sound system to plug your iPhone into for background music. The chairs have pull out foot rests to add to the comfort level. The first floor bedroom has a double nestled in beautiful wood built-ins complete with custom nooks on each side of the bed for your beverage or reading material. There is also a wall hung tv and books for relaxing. The second floor holds two more bedrooms. The queen bedroom has the old bungalow fashion drawers built into the wall and ample closet space. There is a large tv for viewing as well. The twin bedroom has ample closets and built in cubbies in the walls which are great for keeping treasures.
As soon as you walk through the door you feel at home. The Idle Wave is where you kick off your shoes, pour a glass of your favorite beverage, and breathe in the salty Cape air. Relax.
