Cape Cod House Rental Photos and Description

30 Steps to the Beach.

30 steps walk to a private sandy beach. No roads to cross.

The Main House is a full-sized home, roomy for large families or groups.

Our beautiful beach is adjacent to the Cape Cod National Seashore.

Great beach for swimming, kayaking, sailing, exploring, reading, writing, collecting sea shells and relaxing. Gentle waves, no riptides to worry about, tidal , naturally clean, wonderful for small children.

AHHH the SEA!

Please note that occupancy is limited to 11 people during the summer, 13 allowed off-season.

5 ocean Kayaks are included in the rental. Enjoy full water views from our south-facing, 2,000 square foot, Cape Cod-style, two-level no basement home. Lots of windows, sliders, and decks. Our kitchen has ample counter space, full sized appliances and a water view.

LOCATION. The 'Sea Shells' cottages, Chequessett Neck, Wellfleet, Cape Cod. The Sea Shells is a cluster of 'Olde Cape Cod' style cottages in a secluded, private beachfront location. Walking distance to Wellfleet's seaside golf course. 1 mile to the historic village of Wellfleet - restaurants, shops, fresh local seafood, organic produce, and art galleries. Walk down the beach to Wellfleet Pier. At the Pier - go on a fishing excursion, rent a sailboat, order cooked lobsters for dinner at Mac's, go to a show at Wellfleet Harbor Actor's Theater (W.H.A.T.).

Walk to a tot park playground with tennis courts, basketball, a frisbee field, swings, and a skate board park. Wednesday night there's square dancing at the Pier.

SIZE. The Main House is NOT a cottage with small, adjacent bedrooms, thin walls, and pioneer quality beds. Our family vacation home is spacious for 1 family, can comfortably accommodate an extended family, 2 families, or groups of friends with privacy. Excellent for family reunions and work retreats.

There's a walking trail upland - follow the signs to the old tavern site - from the 1700s.

Adventurous? Continue kayaking along the edge of Great Island and try to reach Jeremy Point. Lotion up! It's submerged except at low tide. Return to Main with the wind and waves at your back. Enjoy a cold beverage and relay your tale of high sea adventure with enthusiasm and embellishment.

Sometimes there are 3 generations vacationing at Main - I love that. My wife & I have been coming to Wellfleet since the 1980's. Recently, 4 dear friends and 2 family members have bought property here - so nice for us. My wife's a psychologist and I'm a real estate broker. My company is Franklin Real Estate. If you want to talk about Buying vacation rental property, feel free to give me a ring. I'll give you my 2 cents worth of advice - worth every penny.

Howie Feinstein purchased this house in 2002

Why Howie Feinstein chose Cape Cod

Adjacent to Cape Cod National Seashore. The beauty. The quiet. The salty air. The sand between your toes. The swimming at high tide. Walking around at low tide -different every day. The soothing, rhythmic sound of the waves on the beach.

What makes this house unique

Explore Cape Cod National Seashore by foot or by kayak. Sand dunes, salt marshes, & secluded beaches. Especially peaceful in the off-season, and the water is warm enough to swim in. This is living!

Awesome week!

  • 5 of 5

Three generations of us enjoyed another week at the Main House. Perfect weather. Kayaks provided much fun for Grandchildren. So close to our favorite restaurants (PJ's and Moby Dicks and Arnolds and Mac's and Russ & Maries BBQ and Gift Barn Pizza) Fully stocked kitchen and spacious dining area. Sleeping accommodations perfect. Watching the tides from the balcony so relaxing.

Wellfleet remains so unspoiled and serene a place to visit. A walk across Uncle Tim's Bridge and trails on the island are fun. The Cedar Swamp Trail. The Truro Winery (Cranberry Red wine in a glass lighthouse) I know it is in Truro, but that's OK, too.

We all had a wonderful time.

Awesome Family Time!

  • 5 of 5

We were two families with 5 children ranging from 3-12 yrs. The house and beach were perfect! The house allowed for each family to have their 'own' space as well as allowing kids and adults to separate with two living areas on separate floors. The house is fully stocked with books and board games for all ages as well as a huge bin of outdoor sand toys, boogie boards, beach chairs and life jackets for all ages and sizes. The kitchen has everything you need, including lobster pots and utensils needed for a delicious lobster dinner. The beach is great for swimming and kayaking at higher tides, at low tide, it is fun to watch the fishermen pull in the oyster pots, etc. The ocean is only a 10 minute drive away and offers another great beach experience. The town of wellfleet is very quaint with everything you need as well as a variety of restaurants to choose from. Wellfleet is much less busy than other towns on the Cape, which we enjoyed. We truly enjoyed our time here!

Overpriced, only 1 real bathroom

  • 2 of 5

The kitchen and living room in this house are very nice, but there are really only two usable bedrooms, and one of the bathroom is in a master suite, leaving only 1 usable bathroom for the rest of the house. Not at all worth what they are charging.

Owner's Response: In fact, there is a full bathroom off the hall on the 1st floor and a full bathroom off the master bedroom on the 2nd floor. (This is described in the contract) There are 4 private bedrooms + 1 walk-thru bedroom. This review was quite shocking to me. So I called and asked the guest why he considered the 2nd bathroom, and the 3rd, 4th and 5th bedrooms to be unusable. He said he couldn't remember what he wrote in the review.

Unbeatable location

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 couples all in our 60s. The house itself is comfortable and the layout perfect for a large group. We spent most of our indoor time congregating in the upstairs living/dining/

Kitchen area. The whole area opens onto a spacious deck with beautiful water views. The swimming and kayaking are so easy with the beach this close. The proximity to town was also a plus as it is only a short bike ride away. Our favorite restaurant was mac shack (the one in town) The wine list and raw bar were unbeatable.

Great for Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

For a large family reunion it worked out very well. The kayaking was very popular and the proximity to beach was great. Having only 2 bathrooms for 13 people was a little challenging but we adjusted. The upstairs with the dining room was airy and had a good view. The bedrooms could use updating.

Fun Memorial Day Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This was a cute, quaint house for the weekend. It was as close to the water as mentioned and everything you could possibly need in terms of utensils and kitchen appliances were in the house. The layout is great and the activities you can do are endless. The beach is beautiful, much better than in the pictures. The community is very quiet and Wellfleet center has everything you could need. The property was clean and Howie was quick in getting back to me. I went with a big group and everyone slept comfortably. I am already thinking of booking it for next year! Its close to Truro Vineyards and Provincetown with its beautiful beaches. The Wicked Oyster and the Lighthouse are great places to eat breakfast or brunch. I would definitely recommend coming here.
