Howie Feinstein purchased this House in 2002
Why Howie Feinstein chose Wellfleet
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 sound of the waves.
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. Water is warm enough to swim in. This is living!

Loved the location. We could bike to all the beaches and town. Lovely views of the bay. Kids had a great time finding little creatures in the bay. We used the kayaks quite a bit and that was a real bonus. Liked the comfortable open lay out of the living room dining room and kitchen. We had a party of ten and there was plenty of space.
Great place for a big group
Really pleasant comfortable house. The bedrooms are comfortable, and for a beach cottage there's reasonable privacy. The common area is really pleasant, and we loved the deck. Swimming right outside at high tide, enjoying the snails and crabs at low tide, walking down the beach into town, and kayaking out to Great Island were real highlights. Howie was great to communicate with. Would definitely stay again with a big group!
A lot of house for the money

So much fun in one week!
“Big beach house in Wellfleet with kayaks.”
Thats what we wanted and that’s what we got. Wellfleet is such a great location for beginner OR advanced kayakers. And the 5 sit-on-tops included - they can’t sink and you could hardly flip them over if you tried.
We also enjoyed going on a 1/2 day fishing excursion with the Naviator out of Wellfleet Pier. We all caught fish. For a tip they cleaned and filleted them, and we ate our catch for dinner!
The house itself is straightforward and as described on Vrbo. One of the 5 bedrooms is a “walk- thru” bedroom. One is very small. There were no ant problems which we’ve found to be the case at other Cape Cod rentals. The owners seem ‘hands on’ in taking care of the property.
Having 2 big living rooms on separate floors with TVs was nice. So was the ping pong. We could’ve really used 2 weeks.
I recommend the Main House and Wellfleet in general if you like active and outdoorsy vacations.
Main House, Sea Shells cottages, Wellfleet. Everyone that we wanted was here. We're an extended family - 4 years old to 88! The property is presented accurately, though the owner has an individual site with lots more pictures. He is easy to reach and we did have one minor issue which was fixed within hours.
Wellfleet is pretty far out Cape Cod, 100 miles from Boston. But the beaches and restaurants are terrific and less crowded.
We visited the ocean beaches with their big waves and shark warnings, and the ponds which have crystal clear water and are very peaceful. Mostly though we hung around the Main House beach which is on the bay side of Wellfleet. It's just steps away - not a staircase, just walking steps - quiet, beautiful, great swimming and boating, relaxing, interesting to explore the sea bottom at low tide...
For restaurants we liked Winslows and the Wicked Oyster. At the house we liked having ping-pong. A 2nd frig was handy.
We would definitely recommend and come back if our family's schedule allows.
