Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Joe and Crystal made us feel right at home, they were very friendly and always ready to help if we needed anything. The two master bedrooms, as well as the 5 beds upstairs, gave each of us enough room to spread out and relax. The hot tub was a great bonus for our group! The location is great, right in between Boston, Plymouth, and the Cape. We hit up all three and had great outings at each. The oven in the kitchen is a little small, but we were still able to have a Thanksgiving dinner for 8 with relative ease. The basement is not finished and the pool table down there is kid's size and not in great shape (slanted). We had a great stay and would recommend this house!

Perfect find!!! Clean, spacious. Would highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for our June wedding weekend & it could not be happier. The location was great, easy access and so convenient. The home was exactly as pictured/presented on the website (maybe even with a few updates - new bedding on every bed etc.)Fully equipped with everything a normal home would need- We actually over packed as the house has literally everything you need. It is a large home, great open floor plan & accommodated our bridal party easily. Large driveway for cars/limo to access. Everyone had a comfortable bed & we had plenty of space inside the home as well as within the large deck/yard. Hot tub- large/clean! Says that only master bedroom had AC, but did not get warm at all- plenty of fans provided & so many windows allowing cross breezes.

We received our security deposit back before we even got back from the honeymoon. Owners were prompt & easy to work with.

Awesome home. Convenient to everything.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Captain Jack's to attend a graduation at Mass Maritime then stay a week. The location was perfect. The home was excellent. Very lovely furniture, wonderful beds and everything you could possibly need in terms of appliances, dishes, pots/pans. The owners were awesome. Would highly recommend to anyone attending Academy events. Yard is great for family games and fun time. Short drive to ferry and beaches. Easy ride to National Seashore. Easy day trips to Boston and Provincetown. We echo the previous review about this being the best property we have stayed in. Thank you to Crystal and Joe.

Best Yet

  • 5 of 5

I can honestly say this is the best VRBO property that we have stayed in. The house easily accommodated our extended family of nine.

The owners were very friendly and were very helpful in informing us of the different sites and restaurants.

The house was immaculate. It had every imaginable device needed for an extended stay and more dishes than you count. The layout offered privacy and spaciousness. The furniture was tasteful and comfortable.

The outside property was suitable for the kids games.

It is in a rural area of Cape Cod and very quiet. Access to main Cape Cod roads was easy, but I would could not recommend Cape Cod in July as the traffic was brutal, which of course is no fault of the owner. It was about a ninety minute drive to Provincetown for the whale watching.

I would high recommend Captain Jack's for families that don't need water front property.

Great for extended family

  • 5 of 5

As an extended family of 9, we needed a place to stay in Bourne for a family wedding weekend. Captain Jack's was the perfect place for us to be together. House was immaculate with plenty of room to spread out. Clean and very comfortable. Owner responded to all questions in a timely fashion and I received security deposit immediately after our stay. I would highly recommend Captain Jack's to other families and friends.

Wedding/Honeymoon week at Captain Jack's

  • 5 of 5

We just finished our week at Captain Jack's and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Everything was sparkling clean and well stocked. Anything we needed in the kitchen was provided. Plenty of space for everyone to be comfortable for our destination wedding. The owners were friendly, easy to work with and very accommodating. Would highly recommend this rental, the owners obviously take pride in the property. Thanks Crystal & Joe!
