We have enjoyed our stay in this wonderful setting, with my parents and two kids. The quiet beach and shallow water was perfect for the kids to play. The large patio was great and the owner lends kayaks and "sunbrellas". The cottage was perfectly located, at walking distance (10-15 min) from the shops and restaurants but far enough to be quiet at night. An amazing spot in Cape Cod bay.
We are a family of 6 who has been coming to Provincetown for many summers. In years past we stayed at the Provincetown Inn, and in hotels further down Cape. This past year we decided to stay in a rental house. We found that this is a much better arrangement than any hotel. The original cottage (its really a house) is very old, but has been remodeled. The own says that it was built more than 100 years ago by a rich woman as a playhouse for her children! It has an enormous, airy living room with views of the bay and lighthouse at the end of the Cape. At one end of the living room is a fireplace and a balcony above it. The deck is also huge and hangs right over the beach. All the bedrooms are charming with higher grade linens, stained glass lamps and Asian rugs on the floors. The only criticisms we had was that the kitchen stove was old, but the owner has told us that he has now replaced it. This was the best rental we ever had on Cape Cod and we will certainly come back again.
If you are looking for a slick, HDTV designer appointed beach house, this is not the place for you.
If you love the bohemian artist colony shabby chic look, this home will sooth your soul. The owner's father was a sculptor and his mother a painter and they collected all sorts of wonderful things that fill the space. Everywhere your eye lands, there is something wonderful to look at or ponder. Lovely woven wool area rugs separate spaces on the beautiful hardwood and tiled floors. There are gorgeous slabs of wood used throughout the house for steps and stairs and the spiral staircase railing is cast iron netting. There are two bedrooms on the first floor, queen beds, one with a full bath (shower). Between the second bedroom and the study is a full bath that serves as the main bathroom. It has a bathtub and is stocked with towels and washcloths. There is a study off the living room that has a twin futon in it, it is a narrow room with a bay window looking out on the water. Second floor spiral staircase winds around the chimney to a large landing area with another twin bed. And then another large room in the loft space that has a King bed and a twin. There is a widow's walk style deck off the second floor that gives a nice view of parades and things going on. It looks out to the garden across the street that the owner's mother and her friend designed and built. It's a really nice space and the flowers are amazing.
The main living area is completely open and you can see the amazing view of the bay from the entire space through the wall of windows. It was rainy the week we were there, but the wall of windows let in so much light that it never felt gloomy. The kitchen is a small galley style, no dishwasher, but has a huge stainless steel sink and the stove is gas so I was happy, and the pots and pans were great. Plenty of mugs, bowls, plates and glasses for the 6 of us. We made breakfast and either lunch or dinner at the house all week. There is a small foodie grocery store within walking distance, and there is a huge supermarket/pharmacy within a ten minute drive.
The deck is huge and the beach is steps away. High tide comes right up the bulkhead.
The owner and his family live next door, and were very pleasant and attentive to our questions and happy to share the history of the home with us.
Overall, it was a great rental for our first stay in P-town.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this great windswept, beach front house! It has a spacious great room directly looking out onto the water with a 1200 sqft deck accompanying the back of the house. Tasteful art graces the walls throughout with separate sleeping quarters for up to 4 couples (eight people). You will not want to turn on the tv, look at a newspaper, or even go into town when you stay here. It evokes complete rest and seaside relaxation with friendly neighbors and folks quietly passing by on their beach walks! A must stay!
Sleeps 9. Unusually affordable for being right on the bay beach. We rented a sailboat and were able to beach it at the house, switch crews, and go back out. Very convenient. 15 minute (1 mile) walk to center of Provincetown. 10 minute walk to Provincetown dunes. Quiet at night. Includes two parking spaces, and kayaks for recreation. Stocked with games and puzzles in case of rain. Renters have use of free shared washer and dryer next door at owner's residence. The home was not being rented the week after we were there, and the owner graciously offered to let us stay one or two days extra. Gas stove is indeed new and works well. We cooked many meals with ease. Indoor dining room table big enough for 10. Outdoor picnic table on deck. Owner offered use of outdoor grill as well. It happened to rain much of our trip and we were comfortable to stay in the house and entertain ourselves for long periods. Owner gave us a personal tour of the art in this house as well as his private residence. We appreciated this and admired his close personal connection to the art. Check out the absolutely phenomenal garden across the street.
We have enjoyed ourselves in this "cottage" for the past several years. The beach is out the back door and the sand is wonderful. Kids will love collecting sealife at low tide. The owner is very accomodating and helpful. My dad needs assistance walking and the owner modifed the stairs to ease his travel. The washer and dryer are next door and access is very easy. He willingly loans his bikes and kayaks. The interior is very comfortable and welcoming; the kitchen is fully stocked. We also appreciate the owner's flexibility in arriving and departing. The location is perfect. Far enough away from downtown to enjoy the sounds of the ocean, but close enough for an easy walk to the shops and resturants. Not surprisingly, I don't understand or agree with the comments of the first reviewer. We keep returning because of all the home and owner offer. Our week is a wonderful escape from the daily grind!
The most disgusting house I have ever stayed in. Filthy, moldy. Furniture and beds are so old. Deck is in disrepair and patio furniture was gross. We stayed there last year- 2008. The website photos are old and deceiving.
