About the property

3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, 1 Outdoor Shower, Sprawling Backyard With Hammock

Nauset beach is just down the road from this sun filled home located in East Orleans. The quiet private road and 150 foot driveway opens into a large backyard, surrounded by privacy, lush forest, some curious rabbits, and colorful flower beds.

Hardwood floors, big windows, enough space for privacy and entertaining, and the tranquil green scenery makes this 18-year-old 'Captain's House' the ideal location for a sea-side vacation or a weekend get-a-way.

The house includes three 2nd floor bedrooms, one of which is a large master bedroom with TV, vaulted ceiling and skylight, a den/bedroom, oversized sofas (both queen sofa beds), king size bed (master bedroom), queen size bed, two twin beds that each include trundel beds. A fireplace, a flat-screen TV, four room A/C units, floor fans, a large library of games, videos, DVDs ... give this home a feel of both fun and pure relaxation.

Outside amenities include a gas grill, hammock, outdoor enclosed hot shower, large deck with table, chairs, umbrella and a large tree surrounded backyard define a private enjoyable vacation spot for anybody.

Nearby is not only Nauset Beach but the Skaket Beach on Cape Cod Bay, Pleasant Bay, Rock Harbor, Nickerson Park, the Wellfleet Ponds, Weekly Summer Camps, the Orleans Firebirds night games, Tennis, Golf, eateries like Chocolate Sparrow Coffee House, Land Ho and Liam’s. Lots of seafood! East Orleans Village with its shops and even its own theater group down the street. Provincetown and Hyannis are only 35 minute drives away. Three of Cape Cod's biggest grocery stores are only a few miles away.

NOTE: I only accept payments through Venmo or PayPal. I need to charge PayPal payments an extra 3.2% because that's how much they charge recipients. I cannot under any circumstances receive checks. I cannot receive VRBO payments because they take too high of a percentage. I'm happy to guide and advise luddites on registering for either venmo or paypal.

Thank you!

About Julie Morse

Sisters Julie and Erin are owners of this East Orleans sanctuary. We call California and Boston our homes. We grew up spending many summers and winter weekends at our Orleans house and love to share its charming spirit with others.

Julie Morse purchased this house in 1998

Why Julie Morse chose East Orleans

About eight years ago, my sister, Erin and I inherited this home from our father. He and our mother designed it themselves. It was our father's sanctuary that he intended to be our family's first heirloom. We are continuing his tradition of renting it out to responsible and thoughtful families and individuals.

What makes this house unique

Our home has always had a special, charismatic energy. It is a retreat - a place to get away from the monotony of work and routine. It's just barely hidden by trees and long driveway, yet has great lighting and is very close to stunning Nauset Beach and restaurants.

Nauset Beach

East Orleans village features ocean coves on three sides. On many nights you can hear the ocean waves crashing at Nauset. You can take walks in many directions taking you to hidden coves or public boat launches or to clam digging areas or to beautiful Nauset Beach.

Take your bike (or rent one) and go on the Cape Cod Bike Trail. Take your kayak (or rent one) and go exploring on a nearby pond or saltwater march. Take your camera and take pictures of many types of birds in the backyard.

Skaket Beach is the best salt water beach for young kids anywhere. At low tide the water goes out a quarter mile leaving many tidal pools and streams for kids to play in and lots of beach space for adults to escape to.

Both Orleans beaches have lifeguards, outdoor showers, restrooms and snack bars.

Enjoy a delightful evening theater experience at the Orleans Playhouse just down the street.

After dinner, go have an ice cream at the nearby Sundae School and take it with you to the Orleans Cardinal's Cape Cod League baseball game 2 miles away (mid June to mid August). You'll think you've entered into a Norman Rockwell painting from 50 years ago.

Or after dinner, go to the Chocolate Sparrow for your favorite coffee drink and a decadent dessert then go down to Skaket Beach and watch a beautiful sunset over Cape Cod Bay.

Quiet, secluded, spacious and bright house in a traditional family home 20 minute walk to Nauset

  • 5 of 5

We've been to the Cape many times before and this has been our favourite place to stay ! The description of the listing was 100 % accurate and we were very satisfied with the home. It was equipped with everything that you could possibly need and more ! We loved the quiet area of the house and slept very peacefully. We walked 20 minutes every day to Nauset along a safe quiet road with pretty Cape Cod homes. The weather was cool but sunny the first week with a few hot days and temperatures in the mid 70's the next week.

Couldn't have asked for a better vacation ! Hopefully we will be back next June :)

Thanks Julie !

A restful and relaxing escape.

  • 5 of 5

A vacation is to relax and escape from every day life. We have been staying here for about 8 years and find the house fills the bill completely, it has all anyone could be looking for with a very private location. The house is everything you need for a summer vacation home. Near to the beaches both ocean side and bay side. Great for trips to "P" town for shopping, bike trails and National Seashore and easy trip to take the ferry to the islands. Also near a fantastic selection of restaurants for everyone's tastes. If you want, you never have to leave the house, sit on the deck and enjoy the sun or relax in the shade of the trees

9 Pheasant Drive East Orleans

  • 5 of 5

My family has been enjoying the Morse House in East Orleans for many, many years. The past few years we have been booking our stay for 2 weeks, which I highly recommend! The house is spacious, comfortable and is situated in a private location. We love the deck and yard and make use of it as much as possible. The access to the beaches and dining locations in town are excellent. In addition, access to the bike trail and Nickerson State Park make the location ideal for the active vacationer. We always look forward to our next summer vacation the minute we leave.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a perfect location...close to beaches, restaurants, stores, yet private and secluded. We have rented in Orleans for years and have found this home has it all. Layout is perfect, user friendly for all ages. We had family visits with babies and had plenty of space for everyone to spread out. Well built home so sounds don't travel. Deck and yard are spacious and private, ideal for cookouts or just relaxing. Owner very easy to contact and work with. We look forward to renting this home again this year.

Great house, great location!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this wonderful house for four years now, and we always leave anxious to return. My son's family came and stayed with us the first year and there was plenty of room for all of us. It is such a quiet neighborhood we sleep better there than we do at home. It is a long walk to the beach or a short drive, and we go at least once a day. We watch the sun rise at the beach or take a short drive to the bay side for the sun set. Being centrally located on the Cape it is a short drive to Chatham for great shopping or a bit longer drive for a day trip to P;town, which is always an adventure. We now are staying twice a year and look forward to each trip.
