Accept no compromises! Enjoy your vacation within Provincetown's finest beachside residence. Comprising the entire MAIN FLOOR of Provincetown's landmark Sandpiper Beach House, this exceptionally fine home uniquely combines spectacular waterside views, an unbeatable location in the center of town (on Commercial St at Winthrop), and privacy and luxury throughout.

Three spacious bedrooms, each with their own queen-sized bed, en-suite bathroom, 175 channels of individually controlled DirecTV and VCR, ensure luxurious comfort.

About Michael Mills

We were in Provincetown for Carnival in 2004 and visited some friends who were staying at what is now our home. We absolutely fell in love with it! After almost a year of coaxing, we persuaded the former owners to sell it to us. We now realise in hindsight how incredibly fortunate we were to have purchased an incredibly special property such as this. It is truly magical! :-)

Michael Mills purchased this condo in 2004

Why Michael Mills chose Cape Cod

There is quite simply no other property available for rent in Provincetown that compares to this one. It is both on the beach and located in the middle of town. You can immerse yourself into what is going on in town just by sitting on the front porch. Or you can enjoy quiet solitude on the expansive and private rear deck. Our home adjusts to whatever type of vacation you want!

What makes this condo unique

After purchasing our home, we restored many of its original architectural features from 1898. Most of the furniture we brought over from our home in England. Guests tell us that this is quite simply the most luxurious place you can stay in Provincetown.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sandpiper in November of 2006 and it was extraordinary. It has beautiful and comfortable rooms and a well equipped kitchen with a spectacular view of the rising sun. Then, of course, there is the huge deck. There were four of us and it was a perfect place to enjoy Provincetown. Brad and Michael were also attentive in terms of making sure everything was perfect. We'll be back.

fantastic time in provincetown

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owners were responsive and very easy to talk to about the rental. The place itself is fantastic, it could not be better situated or appointed. I had a really nice week with my mother and partner, would happily revisit if given an opportunity.

The main floor of the Sandpiper is spacious and filled with beautiful furniture. The front faces Commercial street and the back deck overlooks the bay.

The heart of Provincetown

  • 5 of 5

The quality of the furniture, the comfort of the beds, the amazing dining room table and chairs and the 'decor' are not small details, they made us feel at home. I spent hours on that deck reading. You don't want to leave unless if you want to see some people, then you can sit on the front porch and just say hi to pedestrians! I rented this condo for my partner's birthday. He enjoyed his gift as well as our best friends. They just could not believe we had all of this just for us to enjoy. Thank you Brad and Michael.

Lovely Property

  • 4 of 5

Exactly as shown in photos. Furnishings are nice, bright and open air feeling. Great location! The house is walking distance to food, coffee, shopping, and the fast ferry into Boston (90 minute ride to the city). Beautiful Ocean views from the den, kitchen, dining room and the back bedroom. Wonderful deck for quite mornings and plenty of rocking chairs on the front porch after the sun goes down. The owners are super nice and very easy to work with. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful New Year's Stay in PTown

  • 5 of 5

This property is pretty incredible. Everything you could want plus an amazing view and a comfortable, cozy place. It was perfect for the 5 of us and we never felt on top of one another. The kitchen and dining areas were perfect, especially for large meals! We had one of the best vacation experiences I can remember!

We located on a section of private beach!
Car: not necessary

The property is located both on the beach and in the center of America's best street scene (Commercial Street), so the possibilities are endless. Choose from lounging waterside on your private 1,000 square foot deck (not shared with anyone) or meeting new friends as you relax on what guests call 'Provincetown's best front porch'.

With Spiritus Pizza (the social center of town) 90 seconds east and The Provincetown General Store only 90 seconds west, you are truly close to every major attraction Provincetown has to offer. Whether you prefer relaxing privately or being close to the action, there is no better location.

Other Activities: whale watching, bike trails, kayaking, boating, sightseeing, gyms, museums, massage, dune tours, shopping, theater, nightlife
