Before looking, I had a picture in my head of the ideal place for a much-needed vacation after a stressful spring in Brooklyn: A small house with a deck right on the water in a quiet spot on Cape Cod and a beach virtually to ourselves. 5 Cap'n Crocker fit the bill. The location was exactly what I'd pictured but never thought we could actually find. The house was clean and bright, the heat worked well, and all the arrangements with Sand Dollar were smooth, honest and friendly.

We have vacationed on the cape several times but this is the first time we have stayed in Sandwich. Sandwich has that quaint small town feel to it. The oceanfront location of the cottage is impressive. It was wonderful having a private beach with two small children in tow. It was best at low tide for the children to play. The cottage was very clean and bright. The kitchen was well equipped with every kitchen utensil needed. We enjoyed the vacation and would recommend staying at this location.

Great to be able to sit on the deck to see sunrise with your coffee & sunset with a glass of wine, as well. As well as rain and thunder storms from the picture window- all done while viewing the private beach. Great for just lounging around at with family & friends. Only problem is time goes by too quickly.

This is a nice beach to relax with the family. We have two kids, 12 and 16 and they really love it as much as we do. Very relaxing!

The location was the best part. We stayed on the water last year as well, but this beach was nicer, (less rocky, although it did have some rocks). The weather was fantastic, which is always a plus. The house itself was clean, and very cozy, the view of the beach was great too! I would definately stay here again, as we have booked for next year as well.

Great service from Sand Dollar. It was our second year in the cottage. The accomadations are good but basic. Nice kitchen and open family room with high ceilings. Feels roomy. Amazing view and wonderful private beach.

"Noreaster with good sunshine on the back end" We had a wonderful time even though it rained for four days. The house was perfect and the kitchen was unexpectedly modern, nice touch. My only complaint is trivial, but the grill was old and falling apart, so we didn't grill much. Other than that it was a perfect place that felt private, but not too far away from anything.

Wanted a place I could open the door and be on the beach. I got what I wanted. The ocean is a staircase away. The house was clean with an updated, fully stocked kitchen. The deck is large and has wonderful views and 2 grills. The beach is a great swimming beach especially when the tide it out. It's a great beach for kids and adults. Outdoor shower has hot water. Campfires allowed for S'mores at night. We had a wonderful time. The pictures don't do the beach side of the house justice.

In one word...Relaxing. We enjoy coming to the Cape every year. We come in May before school is out and we tend to have the beach to ourselves. There are times we sit on the deck and can look to the left and right and not see another person. We love to walk the beach and enjoy playing on the sand bars. During that time of year it is very peaceful.

My wife and I have dealt with the owner of the property for 30 years. As with anything else there have been problems over the years, that were quickly resolved & the few negatives are far out paced by positives. On your first day, take a cup of coffee out on the deck and look straight ahead and you'll know what Cape Cod is all about. Remember it is a vacation cottage & except for A/C you have all you need for your stay.By the way I collectd the bouys in the photo over the years.

Everything you need for a great vacation. Though the outside in the front may be deceiving the back deck is paradise. The house is simple but has an open layout that is more then enough for a good size family. It is great that they leave some basic and not so basic supplies there as you always forget something. It was truly the best vacation my family has had. With a house right on the beach the kids had so much more time to have fun. I wouldn't change a thing. We reserved for next year.

I stayed in this really nice property right on Cape Cod Bay. At night, when it was very clear, I could see all the way from Plymouth around to the lighthouse at Provincetown. It was a terrific place from which to travel to and explore all parts of the Cape. And a great place for a good night's sleep and some drop-dead sunsets.. I would love to go back to this property and would definitely want to be located in East Sandwich again. This is a delightful property in a delightful area.

The Best Beachfront Casual Living. Awesome week spent at 5 Captain Crocker. The cottage had everything we needed. This is a no frills casual living place that fit our family perfectly. So close (steps) to the private beach makes this place a hidden jewel. Can't wait to return next year.

I cannot say enough good things about this beach house rental. Sand Dollar Realty was more than accommodating and everyone I spoke to was so friendly and helpful. The house was so nice and clean with a beautiful updated kitchen. Everything was so nicely stocked. We were so impressed with the cleanliness and how wonderfully they took care of this little beauty on the ocean. We were in our own little oasis with the private beach and the quaint little town of Sandwich.
