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 eat and upon coming back, decided we could not stay there the night for fear of her having a bad reaction and having to call an ambulance or have to go to the ER. It was verified that it was okay if this occurred. When I asked for my deposit to be returned by the owners, I was told no because we did not stay there. Nothing in the lease says anything about forfeiting the deposit and I was assured $200 of the money I gave, would be returned. Alas, I have not seen any of my money and have been told that I would not be given the money back despite not staying there. The owners were unkind, dishonest and rude to us. I would not recommend staying here because god forbid you have any issues come up, you won't get your money back.
To say that we loved it at the Captain Alexander's would be an understatement! I would have to say that it was one of the best places that we have ever stayed at. It was just what we needed to relax and unwind from all the craziness. Being so close to the beach and the water just added to aura of the place and we managed to go done to walk along the water nearly every day that wee were there. The bike trail was just as beautiful and inviting, and we took full advantage of it as well. It was so peaceful to ride along the wooded areas, and along the ponds and cranberry bogs. The on-site manager and his wife were a pleasure to know. They were very personable and helpful. On a scale from 1-10, I would rate our experience at an 11+. We could not have asked for a better place to go to.

Great rental has everything you need and close to the beach ideal for spending days on the beach and the outside shower ensures you can leave the beach at the beach and not bring half of it home in your suitcase. Small kitchen but we usually ate breakfast in, packed and ate lunch on the beach and ate dinner out. Front loading washer and dryer are wonderful I could bring home a suitcase of clean laundry for a change. A great value.
My husband and 3 children ages 8,13, & 15 traveled for a long weekend to the Cape. We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment at the Captain Alexander's Hideaway and it was wonderful. The bedrooms were large with plenty of closet and dresser storage. The kitchen is small and it may be difficult to cook larger meals but it suited us just fine as we often ate off premise. It was clean with a large living area and a washer and dryer. With only a 5 min walk to the public beach the location was very nice as well.
