About The Papallo Family
We (Dave and Marian Papallo) are both from Connecticut and have been coming to Cape Cod for over 60 years. We love it here so much, we even spent our honeymoon on the Cape Cod beaches! We have been married for over 52 years and have five children and twelve grandchildren. We love spending time in our cottage (Unit #11) and take pride in the cottages we rent (#9 and #10). Our children now assist us in the mangagement of the property and we plan on keeping the property in the family for many generations to come!
The Papallo Family purchased this Cottage in 1986
Why The Papallo Family chose West Dennis
We bought this property because we loved the area and all it offered for our family of seven. We rented Unit #10 for several years before the previous owner put it up for sale. We are so happy we purchased this because our five children loved it so much and now our 12 grandchildren are making new memories here! Additionally, the two cottages can be rented independently or can be rented together to form one larger rental (for a larger family or two families). Each living room has a door that can be opened which would allow the living rooms to be joined and closed when privacy is sought. It's perfect for a large family or two families vacationing together!
What makes this Cottage unique
West Dennis beach is on the ocean side and the snack bar, bathrooms, showers and swings are on the end of the beach where our cottages are located. With the ocean just a short distance in front of the cottages and the salt water inlet right behind them, we loved the cross-breeze that comes through the cottages (hence the name Crosswinds).

Great vacation spot
A charming little cottage in a quiet neighborhood. Very clean and well maintained property with a beautiful small backyard. If you like watching birds, make sure to bring a pair binoculars. Overall a perfect venue for a small family. A few minutes walking distance from a beautiful beach and a quick drive away from great food. Hoping to return.
GREAT LOCATION, GREAT EXPERIENCE, GREAT PLACE TO STAY
Perfect Location, can't get any better than if you were right on the beach. Close to everything, beach, stores, restaurants, entertainment.
Great place to stay!
I would recommend this place. The location was great. Close to the beach and a good location in Cape Cod overall for driving to different places. The place was nice and clean and had a great breeze coming off the ocean.
Fantastic location, walk to the beach. Well stocked cottage for all cooking needs, or convenient to restaurants/stores!
What we imagine a beach cottage to be!
What a great place to spend a week at the beach. First half of the week was with my daughter, son-in-law and 2-year-old grandson; second half was with another daughter and her fiance. Two very different experiences, but the cottage was perfect for both.
We arrived and were greeted by owner Doug and his family, truly lovely people. Doug is a virtual Cape Cod expert and is happy to share recommendations and suggestions for restaurants and activities, and was very reachable during our stay.
The cottage is the quintessential beach cottage; set in a row of similar cottages, there was lots of family activity going on among them all and the by-the-sea atmosphere was just what we were looking for. Lack of A/C is a non-issue, as the crosswinds cooled the cottage so much that the sweatshirts came out at night a few times. We did use the two box fans and brought one of our own, but that's just a personal preference when sleeping.
At the most it's a two- to three-minute walk to a great beach (no outrageous daily parking fee!) and a short drive to everything we wanted as far as restaurants, stores, and activities.
The cottage itself has a really well-equipped kitchen. We did most breakfasts and lunches there, and found everything we needed for utensils, etc. My favorite thing was a big plastic wine glass, which I claimed every evening we weren't out for sitting on the patio. We were fortunate that the renters of the other connected unit were really nice people; the outdoor shower is shared between the units and there's not much privacy between the two patios, but it never posed a problem.
I particularly liked that a reasonable cleaning fee was charged in our rental; having to spend the last morning of a vacation cleaning was always a gripe of mine in private rentals. We left the place as neat as we found it, but not having to clean a bathroom or wash a floor was well worth the fee.
I honestly can't think of a negative to this rental; it was a great experience, and the pride Doug and his family take in their rentals is evident. I plan to start saving my pennies now with the aim of renting both connected cottages next year so our whole family can enjoy it together. We truly loved this place and hope to become yearly visitors.
