We enjoyed our 3-night stay here very much. Family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters. Perfect for our needs - good amount of space, a nice walk to the beach, in a quiet neighborhood with a short drive to area restaurants and shopping. We really liked the Earle Street beach - not too big and not too crowded. The outdoor shower and patio area were great for washing off sand after a day at the...

We greatly enjoyed our stay at Captain Alexander's! The owners were great about sending us information beforehand and great recommendation for places to eat and go. We never actually met the property managers at the location but check-in and check-out was super easy. The place is a bit old and run-down but it met all our needs for a few days at the beach. The rental was flexibel about staying for less than a full...

Yes I understand the kitchen is small and although it has a...

I'm sure this review won't see the light of day as the owners will say that it never happened but that's exactly why I'm writing it. We were to rent for 5 days to stay for a wedding that was occurring in Cape Cod. When we got to the rental, there was a smell of mildew. My mother, who is allergic, started having a reaction within 2 hrs. We left the premises for something to...

Management response:

Dear Paola We are sorry that you did not stay at Captain Alexander's. When you arrived the manager Ben met you and you said that everything seemed fine then your mother seem to have a problem with the rental. The first thing that she said was that it was dirty so Ben asked where is the problem and after looking...
