Cape Cod's year-round rental market is notoriously difficult. We thought we'd meander through Craigslist this week in search of listings at the same price point, starting with the elusive non-seasonal rental at a reasonable price point. Since most owners can charge an arm and a leg for the summer season, many are less than inclined to offer 12 month rentals. Today, we're looking at year-round rentals asking $1,000 a month. From a micro-dwelling to a four bedroom, we found eight rentals that each have at least one feature we think most folks are looking for: hardwood floors, laundry, parking, etc. As always, pickins are slim for those who smoke or have pets and utilities are rarely included.Read More
What $1,000 a Month Gets You Across Cape Cod Year-Round

Yes, we know, this place isn't over the bridge, but the "adorable cottage" caught our attention (maybe cause it's furnished?). The 430 sq. ft. year-round rental includes a loft, built-in bookshelves, parking, and is just 200 yards from Independence Beach. No pets and utilities are not included.
Located close to the Cape Cod Canal, this 1000 sq. ft. basement one bedroom is "best suited for one person." The rent includes cable, internet, utilities, trash pickup, laundry, and monthly cleaning of the common area and bathroom. No pets and no lease.
On the Sagamore/Sandwich line, we find a renovated two bedroom, one bath with parking, hardwood floors and laundry. This "super value location!" is located close to Routes 3 and 6, the Cape Cod Canal and the commuter bus to Boston.
This four bedroom, one bath fully furnished home is available as a "monthly, weekly or nightly rental." There's a "seasonal second bathroom available except during winter months." Does that mean it's an outhouse? Interesting.
Here's a two bedroom, one bath yearly rental with a washer/dryer hook up, full kitchen and central ac. Utilities are not included in the rent and pets aren't allowed, but we don't see anything about smokers so it could be a puffers paradise.
This Mashpee two bedroom condo features a tennis court and swimming pool, washer/dryer hook up and a fully applianced kitchen. Located on a bus line, the second floor unit does not allow pets or smokers.
No address was given for this first floor year- round apartment that's "1 mile from bay." The unfurnished unit includes a private entrance, full bath, eat-in-kitchen, courtyard, large living room and one bedroom. There's also parking, a storage space and "weekly access to laundry room." Does that mean just one opportunity a week to do laundry? Either way, it's a smoke-free and pet-free listing.
Here's a "small cozy stand alone one BR cottage" that's winterized and features "affordable" propane heat. Good thing since utilities are not included in the rent. The micro-dwelling is located in the pine forests of North Truro and is "great for single professional or a working couple," also known as the employed.
