There is nothing like falling asleep to the rhythmic sound of breaking waves and waking to songbirds calling to the rising sun. Morning coffee on the deck offers panoramic views from Kalmus beach to Snow Creek where you can catch a glimpse of cranes and blue huron as well as the pair of osprey that annually return to their nest between the two bodies of water.

The Unique Benefits of this Condo:
The Kalmus Beach Retreat is one of the Ocean Gate Condos on Ocean Street, Hyannis.  This location is .5 miles from the Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard ferries and 1 mile to Hyannis Marina, the artists’ shanties, and Hyannis’ Main Streets. Downtown Hyannis offers every imaginable type of food (including homemade ice cream and gelato), craft, and shopping along with the JKF Museum and the Cape Cod Baseball League Museum. Nearby eateries like Spanky’s, Baxter’s and The Black Cat provide great views of the harbor while and Mattakeese Wharf Restaurant provides great views of the bay.

Beachcombers may prefer meandering the ~ 1 mile loop from the retreat that provides views of wind surfers and parasailers on Kalmus beach, piping plover hatchlings on the protected sand dunes, people fishing from the rock jetty, ferries entering and leaving Lewis Bay, picnickers at Veterans’ Memorial Park/the JFK Memorial, and homes along Ocean Street.

As the ‘big city’ on the cape, Hyannis is home to the Cape Cod Mall, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Starbucks, and other major retail outlets. It also provides easy access to the King’s Highway (Route 6A) art galleries and antique outletskayaking and bike trails including Falmouth’s Shining Sea, the Cape Cod Canal Trail and Cape Cod Rail Trail.

During the summer, favorite activities include playing a round of mini-golf and watching a Cape Cod League Baseball game. The games are free and the Hyannis Harbor Hawks play at McKeon Park, just off Main St at 195 High School street. Finally, think about coming during one of the many seasonal festivals like the Bourne Scallop Festival, the Heritage Museum and Gardens Hydrangea Festival, the Wareham’s Cranberry Festival and the Wellfleet Oyster Festival.
