About Alec Willeson

I grew up on Cape Cod, and have enjoyed the beauty of The Cape all of my life! My wife, while growing up in Florida, has a love for the Cape that equals mine! We love the water, the beaches, the boating and the character of Cape Cod!

Alec Willeson purchased this house in 2013

Why Alec Willeson chose Harwich

We have been looking for a home on the cape for many years, and finally found this one that we could enjoy with our children, grandchildren, and extended family! We have lovingly revamped and redecorated this house to make it our home, with so many new items! We want you to be as comfortable here as we are, and we want to afford you the opportunity to enjoy The Cape and all it offers as much as we do! This home is a great, affordable and very comfortable place to come to relax, enjoy family and friends, and explore all that the cape offers! We are 1 mile from the beach on Pleasant Bay, which offers great boating and sailing opportunities; we are 1 mile from two excellent golf courses with many more in the immediate area. There are a number of freshwater lakes for swimming and canoeing, including those in Nickerson State Park, just 1 mile away. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is nearby, offering 22 miles of trail through woods, marshes, and town centers, and is excellent for walking, birding, biking and exploring. We are just 7 miles from Nauset Beach(Atlantic Ocean with larger waves), 6 miles from Chatham Lighthouse Beach(great for ocean views and walks along the Atlantic), 6 miles from Skaket Beach in Orleans on Cape Cod Bay(calm, warmer waters great for little kids wanting to explore the flats during low tide!), 6 miles from Bank Street Beach, Harwichport, on Nantucket Sound(beach, and ferry to Nantucket!), 32 miles from Provincetown Harbor (Whale Watching!), 17 miles from Hyannis (airport, shopping, Cape Cod Central Railroad, Hyannisport and Kennedy Compound,...). And we are at the same time far enough away from the hustle and bustle to relax and enjoy the simple things.

What makes this house unique

We offer you our home: An affordable, very welcoming and comfortable four bedroom, two story home that is just right for a family looking for a place to enjoy our beloved Cape Cod!

We loved the outside deck. The house was in a nice neighborhood. .It was close to beaches and restaurants. Alex and Debbie were very helpful and we appreciated their suggestions for everything. If you want a delightful stay on The Cape, then this is the home to stay at. I would rate the home a 10 star.

Beautiful home with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Alec and Debbie's home was perfect for our long weekend getaway to the cape. The hosts were extremely communicative and responsive and had instructions and suggestions for any question you could have! Their home is exactly as pictured and nestled away on a quiet street. Would love to stay here again!

Perfect home away from home.....but better!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay on Brothers Lane was just wonderful! The house had everything we needed for our family, including a 4 year old and a 10 month old. The house is well located (and quiet) and we were able to have fun both at the house and on many excursions too. There was a great notebook filled with suggestions and ideas that were quite helpful. Thank you so much for sharing your very special house with us. Can't wait to return to the Cape and stay at your home again!!

The perfect spot for relaxing near the beach

  • 5 of 5

As longtime renters on Cape Cod, we've come across many homes --- some very nice, others not so nice. Take it from us, Alec and Debbie Willeson have created the perfect home for relaxing near the beach. This has been our favorite place among all the rentals. Charming, clean, quiet.....and everything you could possibly need is right at your fingertips in the home already. We loved the décor, and it shows that the Willeson's take great pride in their home. Last but not least, the Willeson's are friendly, helpful and accommodating. They honestly seemed to care that we enjoyed our stay at their home. Well, we certainly did enjoy, and hope to be back again in years to come! Thank you so much Alec and Debbie for all the little 'extra touches' that made this summer rental stand out from the rest.

We look forward to you wanting to come back again and again!

The Cape Cod National Seashore is close-by, and offers many options for exploring the beauty of Cape Cod, including trails, beaches, ponds, and activities.

The Cape Cod Rail Trail is 22 miles of very comfortable bike riding, walking, and jogging trails through the towns of Harwich, Chatham, Orleans and Eastham.

Nickerson State Park is only a few miles away, and has many trails and many ponds, all of which offer swimming, canoeing, boating, and sailing, if you love the option of enjoying the FRESH water of The Cape.

Throughout The Cape, the are a variety of lighthouses to visit, the closest being Chatham Light, and Nauset Light in Eastham.

There is also a fast ferry out of Harwich which can take you to Nantucket, which has a charming waterfront, harbor and seaside village to explore, including an excellent Whaling Museum. Rent bikes there (or take your own on the ferry), and you can venture out to some beautiful beaches all around Nantucket. The ferry ride is about an hour, and it's perfect for a day trip.

There is whale watching available out of Provincetown, at the tip of The Cape, which is a fun activity for the whole family. A great way to get out on the water and see those amazing whales! That is also a nice day trip. In Provincetown, there is also a fun Pirate Museum on the waterfront, with many artifacts from The Whidah, a pirate ship which went down just off the beach in Wellfleet way back when.

In Chatham, there are Seal Tours which take you by boat out of the harbor to see all of the Seal colonies which have become very popular, and they also offer trips to the island of Monomoy, which is an uninhabited part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. They offer walking tours of the island, which is miles of beaches and dunes and bird life and sea life. It's a beautiful way to see the natural habitat of many species of birds, and an excellent walking tour along unspoiled beaches.
