This is our third time staying at the Crows Nest 2 bedroom rental at Captain Alexander’s. It works out perfect for our active family. We like to spend our time on the Cape traveling around to different beaches, and areas of the Cape. When we are there we like to spend a few days at the beach that is just a short walk from Captain Alexander’s (Earle Rd Beach) Then we usually drive to P-town and Race Point Beach for a day and we like to spend one day driving over to Mayflower beach in the Dennis area. Since our idea of the ideal Cape Vacation includes multiple long beach days The Crows Nest is perfect for us The outside shower is on of our favorite things for showering when you get back from the beach can get all the stubborn sand and sea weed off. We usually cook and eat breakfast in the compact kitchen, then pack ourselves lunch in a cooler and head out for the day. In the evening we tend to eat out at the multiple restaurants that are just a short drive away. And one or two nights we used the gas grill down on the back deck to grill ourselves dinner and eat outside at the outdoor table and chairs. I brought my own sheets and towels which is no big deal, you can also request that they provide these things for a small fee if you don’t want to bring your own. There are other tenants in this multiple rental home but other then seeing their cars I hardly noticed that they were there. We had ample parking space for our one large vehicle(Ford Flex). This is a nice rental at a reasonable price.
I love staying here, I came here last year too. The crows nest has a very Cape Cod feel to it. Very clean inside. Has a patio and grill outside, all to myself. The beach is only a short walk away and there are many great restaurants near by. I always leave here happy and relaxed. Very relaxing vacation!
Very disappointed with the owners of the property and the property itself. As you come in you have a strong smell of meldew. Flying from a different state we asked for 2 extra pillows and sheets and after we were told they those will be provided with no problem we we asked to buy our own, accused of being demanding and resulted in negative review on my profile. After we checked out with leaving place in clean condition, washing dishes and towels used, I received a nasty email accusing me of stealing a blanket from the property. However, when the blanket was located by the owners, I never received an apology for accusation. It was never mentioned that the first floor will be occupied by the owners’ son, dogs and girlfriend, and having terrible parking experience due to multiple vehicles on a driveway all the time. In addition, this property distribution included use of outside grill, deck, table and chairs, which we were not able to use due to occupancy of the first floor. Only once we got there it was disclosed to us that the first floor was occupied and we were stuck on the second floor with kids not being able to play outside and experience the reason why we came to cape cod. After I was given an opportunity to write a review about this place, I kept my bitter experience to myself not to spoil their overall review on air bnb. Now I really regret doing so. If you don’t want your vacation ruined and you don’t want to receive a review of being too demanding I would not recommend anybody renting from these people.
Nice, clean apartment but very dirty, neglected backyard. The all patio and backyard looks as if the house had been abandoned for years. Truly disgusting outdoor space which negatively impacted our stay.
We found the two bedroom apartment to be FULLY furnished with everything one could ask for. The caretaker (Ben) and his wife were so very helpful and couldn't do enough to make our stay pleasant. Thaks for all your concern and help. Would recommend the property to ANYONE.
