Why Amy Swayze chose PTown

Our family has owned the property for more than 50 years. I've spent many days and nights with my uncles in this house. With every visit and in every season, we'd spend time visiting, eating great food, taking all that Provincetown has to offer and of course, reading books.

I have many special memories that have been made in this house with friends and family. I hope that you will also have the opportunity to make your own special memories.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This little spot was really wonderful. It is a third story walkup apartment right across from the Crown & Anchor, so you're right in the heart of everything. The on-site staff were incredibly helpful (showed us around the apartment when we arrived, gave us keys, etc.). I've stayed a few different places in Provincetown over the years, and this was definitely the most welcomed I've felt in a space.

Note: being in the heart of the town does mean you hear/see a lot of things going on, but when you're back in the bedrooms sleeping, the noise is totally manageable.

I will definitely be trying to book this for future visits.

AMAZING Location!

  • 5 of 5

I have nothing but fantastic things to say about the property, its owner, and the property manager. The home was very clean, well appointed, and extremely comfortable. Its location is, literally, in the thick of it all and convenient to restaurants, nightlife, and shops- amazing! Amy was always prompt and kind in her replies, something I haven't always had with other owners, and her property manager Kate was equally kind and timely. Don't let the title fool you, this place was fully appointed with modern amenities and up to date kitchen/bathroom. Overall, it was a pleasure to stay here and to rent from Amy, so I'd highly recommend it for a small family or set of friends. I am looking forward to staying at this listing again.

We had a wonderful time at the bookshop apartment. It is tidy and has everything you need for your stay. The only downside was the internet did not work while we were there--a blessing in disguise, as it was nice to just be together, but I can imagine that would be an inconvenience for some! Everyone was very responsive, however, and answered all these questions and concerns right away. The apartment is so nice and has plenty of room. It really feels like home.

Owner's Response: Hi Jamie, thank you for staying at our place! We are sorry for the internet issues, and glad you and your family enjoyed your stay. We have fixed it for future guests. Cheers, Amy and Philip

We loved being here!

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely retreat, yet right in the center of town. We couldn't have been closer to what we wanted to see and do -- but upstairs, away from the street, it was private, reasonably quiet, and very peaceful. Plenty of space, cool, convenient, and full of character.

Heart of P-Town

  • 5 of 5

A pleasant surprise in the very center of town. Cute loft style apartment with nice sized master bedroom but small 2nd bedroom with a twin bed. Not suitable for those with disabilities since climbing 3 flights of stairs is required. Good value.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We (2 adults, 2 kids) really enjoyed our week long stay at the Bookshop Apartment. It was our first time to Provincetown, and we didn't realize the apartment is right in the heart of downtown. It was super convenient to everything, and we enjoyed looking out the window at passersby down below. The view out the main bedroom to the Pilgrim Monument was great too. The unit had everything we needed--we had a mix of home cooked meals, take out, and dining out--and was very comfortable. There is a lot of activity outside, but we never had any issue with noise. Next time we'll bring our bikes and use the rack out back. If you're staying for a week and have a car, you can get a $50 parking pass from the Provincetown Parking Department for the Jerome Smith parking lot. It's only a 10-minute walk from the apartment and worked out well for us. (There are closer parking options too.) Check-in was a breeze with Juan, and Amy is super responsive in advance with questions, etc. We're looking forward to our next stay!

The apartment is located in the center of town in the middle of all the action on Commercial Street. The newly renovated, historic Town Hall is 2 blocks away. The Pilgrim Monument is a short five minute walk. Climb to the top for a 360 degree view of Ptown. All major bars and restaurants are easy walking distance or a quick Pedicab ride away. There is no on-site parking with the apartment.
