If history is your passion, nearby are several interesting museums. Windsurfing rentals are available approximately 5 miles from the house.

Perfect for big groups

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed at this house for a weekend wedding. It is clean and perfect for big groups with tons of beds! The location is perfect as well. Walking distance to town and Mid-island conveniences like the super market, etc.

Lovely charming and perfect

  • 5 of 5

We came out to the island to celebrate my 30th birthday, the house was exactly what we needed for a weekend stay. Everyone was ecstatic about the outdoor shower with ample hot water and cute little back yard. The amenities were just the right. The house was clean and spacious enough to keep everyone comfortable and the location was a perfect "home base." If it wasn't for work we would have extended our stay. Thank you so much for your hospitality. :)

Great location, exactly what we needed

  • 4 of 5

Great location on Orange Street close to both town and other attractions in the opposite direction. Great proximity to newly-renovated Cumberland Farms for quick needs for waters, etc. Charming old house with nice outdoor area and room to park a car.

Great Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Captains Home. There is a small, but nice patio in the backyard with a grill and several places to sit. The house fits plenty of guests and we really enjoyed our stay! We had about 10 guests and we all fit comfortably and had a bed. It was a great location and easily walkable to town or a quick uber ride away. Thank you!
