Best house for family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house! The decor was amazing. The living room was so comfortable for the family to relax and reconnect at the end of the day. The kitchen was fabulous - ice maker a huge hit with the kids! Views were spectacular and being up on the hill, we never needed to turn on the air conditioning - the breezes were great. Can't wait to return!

Absolute Gem in Ptown!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year, staying at this perfect spot in Ptown. We absolutely love the home, location and not to mention, Janis and Ellen are fantastic owners to work with. They have thought of absolutely everything to make folks feel welcomed. Could not ask for a better experience for a ptown rental. Beautiful home!

Absolutely perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is a very special house in a very special town. This was our second stay for this rental and it won't be the last. The home was absolutely incredible when we rented in the summer of 2014, but there have been a few improvements (more outdoor space, brighter kitchen, more open space inside) that make the house an incredible bargain. We've rented many homes in Ptown and nothing compares to this house. The location is perfect; just far enough from the fracas but two minutes walk away from Commercial. Beside the fact there are THREE outdoor entertaining spaces (the terrace off the master has a jaw dropping sunset/monument view), two other amenities make this house a total luxury; 1.there is a free parking space in the driveway; 2. Central a/c on those rare hot and humid days. When you rent, you get the entire, free-standing house, so on the majority of days, there is no need for a/c because there is a perfect cross breeze in the house. Add to all this nice neighbors, modern but cozy decor, beautiful garden. super high end appliances, minutes to town beach. It's absolutely, 100% worth every nickel. We can't wait to go back.

P-town Charming

  • 5 of 5

We are very happy to recommend this home for your next stay. All the "fixins" of a few days by the sea were thought of, including the beach chairs. Very fine restaurants, one of our favorites being Desmond's, are a short stroll down the sleepy street from this little oasis. Thanks for a wonderful experience and for allowing us to bring along our doggies! We will be back.

Perfect all around!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was perfect. The house was lovely. Great outdoor space, beautiful master bedroom on second floor with outdoor deck. We were two couples and the arrangement was perfect. The pics don't really do the home justice - super nice place. Location was also great - just a minute from Commercial Street but very quiet neighborhood.

Located at the very tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown has a life uniquely its own, steeped in history dating back and beyond the Pilgrims’ First Landing in 1620 and the Mayflower Compact, but alive today with a cosmopolitan community Almost three-quarters of Provincetown is preserved in its wilderness state as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore Park. The Park provides visitors access to magnificent ocean beaches, nature bike trails and exhibits.Provincetown is also the Cape’s pre-eminent destination for gay and lesbian visitors and residents, proud of its long heritage of a fully open and integrated way of life. Carnival week in August is one of Provincetown’s biggest events. Although Provincetown is a regional public transportation hub with fast ferry, bus and air service from Boston and frequent local shuttle service, it is first and foremost a walking town. You can walk to shops, restaurants and galleries
