Welcome to BLUE SKIES ON THE HALF SHELL – Does it get any cuter than this?  Sit on the screened in porch or go upstairs and take in the panoramic Cape Cod bay views.  Breathe in the salty scent of the sea.  Listen to the sea gulls call out.

Small living room

Small living room but bright and cozy.  Timeless hardwood floors.. Reading lamps to curl up and read a good book.

cute living area

When you tire of reading, watch your favorite show on the 32 inch flat screen TV.

Tiny kitchen and dining area

Newly remodeled kitchen (2011) with all new full-sized appliances.  Love the combination of hardwood floors, white kitchen cabinets with contrasting blue kitchen cabinets.  Very tasteful.  And that’s the thing,, How often to you see an enchanting villa, only to be disappointed with the tired, ‘too country’ decor?  Not so with this small house rental.

Small bedroom

Colorful Master bedroom with new queen pillow top mattress and lively bedspread.  The surf board pillow cracks me up.

Cute bedroom

Second bedroom has two twin beds.  I like when a vacation rental has separate beds in secondary bedrooms because it gives you more sleeping possibilities.

outdoor shower

Spacious new outdoor shower with changing room perfect after a day of sea and salt.

tide clock

Just in case you need the time! A tide clock celebrates ‘beachy’ decor.

little porch

Screened porch spells no bugs as you site back for casual conversation and relaxation.

small roof deck

Roof deck with lounge chairs and umbrella. This is where you’d find me most of the time. Drinking in the view from the house top perch.

panoramic view

As promised, panoramic view of Cape Cod Bay from villa deck.


Enjoy a spectacular sunset over Cape Cod Bay.

According to the vacation rental webpage: “Blue Skies on the Half Shell is an updated seaside cottage with white bead-board ceilings, antique wood flooring, and an airy light blue and white color scheme. We collaborated with a national decorating magazine editor to plan the decor and used locally-made crafts and high end materials and finishes throughout.”  Wow, here at, we think it shows!

Imagine resting in bed taking in the blue green ocean view.

I love how they decorated with natural colors and textures but then gave the big pop of turquoise color in the mimic the pool and sea?

And how about that ceiling?

little bathroom

What a fun bathroom.  Even doors to the outside.. Hmmm, I’ll bet those door go out to the pool.  What about the ‘ship’ window?

small porch

Ahhh, save me that seat!  I wonder how much a ticket from Austin, TX to St. John’s cost?  Years ago our daughter (our little vagabond child who is exploring Hawaii as we speak) sailed the Virgin Islands with friends on a private boat.  That kid has had more adventures in her 22 years!

Tiny Pool
Do I hear splash?  Can you imagine your own private pool?
