Welcome back to a new season at Chases Ocean Grove! 

After the past year, I think everyone is looking forward to an enjoyable and relaxing Summer.  A lot has been going on in the off season.  First, after 12 years of hard work making the Grove a great place to spend the Summer, Mark DeWitt has stepped down as President of Chases Ocean Grove, Inc. He is still on the Board of Directors and is supporting the smooth transition to the new management team.  With Mark stepping down, the Board elected me as the new President.  I have been on the Board of Directors for 12 years and served as Treasurer and Secretary.

The other significant event taking place during the off season was the septic system upgrade.  The North Side is now complete and significant progress was made on the South Side.  Work will start up again after the Grove closes this season and it’s our goal to have the project completed by the start of the 2022 operating season.

To support Grove operations, we have engaged one of the premier property management firms on the Cape – First Property Management.  First Property Management has a solid reputation of managing condominiums and homeowner’s associations in Southeast Massachusetts, Cape Cod and The Islands – to include our neighbors at Salt Air Village and Heritage Sands. 

Andy Witter is the President of First Property Management and its Principal Property Manager.  He is a Certified Manager of Community Associations, an Accredited Management Specialist from the Community Associations Institute, and an Accredited Residential Manager designation from the Institute of Real Estate Management.  I have personally met with Andy and his team, and they are a great group of people.  I look forward to working closely with Andy and the Board with regards to Chases Ocean Grove operations.

For more information on First Property Management and their team, please go to their website at

As we ramp up operations, the Grove office will be staffed from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM Monday through Saturday.   If you need to contact First Property Management, their telephone number is (508)420-0299.  This number also rings inside the office at Chases Ocean Grove.

We will continue to post updates on this website throughout the season.

We understand the special place the Grove holds for all of you and appreciate your love of the Grove.  We ask for your patience and understanding during this period of transition.  We will strive to continue to provide all our cottage owners with timely responses.  Wishing everyone a wonderful 2021 season!
