On Friday, our cousins over at Curbed Boston put together a map of year-round rentals that the New England Patriots' "potential per-player payout of $165,000" could cover in Beantown. Now that the Pats have deflated the Seahawks and won Super Bowl XLIX, we thought we'd put together our own map of Cape & Islands' rentals players on the winning team could splurge on this summer.Read More
8 Cape & Islands' Summer Rentals the Patriots Could Spend Their Super Bowl Bonus On
78 Popponesset Island Road
Strategically, this is possibly the best (or worst) property an unsigned player can rent - a six bedroom within sugar-borrowing distance of both Bob and Jonathan Kraft. Besides having the team owner and president as neighbors, the waterfront home on Popponesset Island comes with a dock, pool and guesthouse. The rate is $15,000/week with a one-month minimum.
77 Pirates Cove
Not surprisingly, the tony village of Osterville is a good place to find pricey summer rentals and this 7BR, 6.5BA checks all of the luxury boxes for $25,000/week.
400 Barnes Road
Pat's can dive into this 6BR, 6BA overlooking the lagoon for most of the summer. The rate is $20,000/week in July and jumps up to $30,000/week in the heat of August.
12 Boldwater Road
Here's an 8BR, 10BA that's available from June through September for a whopping $75,000 a week! The spread is chock-full of amenities such as "a private gym, heated in ground pool, and a boat landing to launch your boat." Don't worry, it's not BYOB, there is a kayak included.
58 Oyster Watcha Road
Behold, "the rare opportunity to enjoy an idyllic Vineyard vacation in a gorgeous and gracious, custom 10,000+-square-foot waterfront compound with every amenity." No really, this Architectural Digest-featured estate pretty much has it all - and then some. Naturally, the June through October weekly rate is a hefty $75,000. Oh, and there's a two week minimum so make that an even heftier $150,000.
6 Capaum Pond Road
With Pat's coach Bill Belichick on island and the Secretary of State around the corner, this might not be a good rental for those longing to host a throwback kegger and/or rave. Regardless, the 7BR, 9BA rents for $35,000-$40,000/week.
48 Monomoy Road
Over in Monomoy, this 6BR, 7.5BA with views galore features a main residence, separate cottage, pool, and a handy lower level gym. The July and August weekly rate is $50,000.
86 Pocomo Road
Finally, here's an 8BR, 8.5BA waterfront estate with private steps to the beach for $55,000 per August week, but - wait for it - bargain hunters can grab a week in June for a mere $35,000.
