Great house in Provincetown
Submitted: July 19, 2007
Stayed: July 2007
the quieter East end of Provincetown, this is a private and lovely
property about a 5 minute walk from a huge beautiful sandy beach.
LOCATION: East end, near a fantastic beach. 3 minute drive to the
bustle of downtown. If you want relaxation, recuperation, and to avoid
the noise of downtown, this is an excellent location, with all the
benefits of the sea air, as the ocean is a very small block away.
It is about a 15 minute walk to downtown on Commercial Street a block
from the house, which will take you past many classic old Cape houses
and some truly spectacular gardens. Bring your camera!
The beach is a 5 minute walk from the house- beautiful white sand, not
a rock in sight, and is fairly empty/private compared to other beaches
on the Cape. Enormous beach at low tide, so the dramatic changes are
interesting. Fantastic beach for children, and you won´t have to worry
about them bashing themselves up on rocks or being bowled over by the
waves. The ocean temperatures were very moderate, in fact, warmer than
Lake Erie where I used to live.
The HOUSE- Classic Cape Cod on 2 stories. Total 1st class renovation
with all the modern conveniences, beatifully decorated in a simple,
breezy style with upscale furnishings that make you realise you are at
the seashore and on vacation. Good sized bathroom complete with ceramic
and glass-doored shower on the first floor.
Open concept kitchen and living room, that has a very spacious
character with lamps and recessed pot lights that create a very
pleasant evening atmosphere. There is a great walkout thru the sliding
doors in the living room to a ground level deck. The deck has a brand
new, upscale Weber BBQ with tools.
Beautiful hardwood floors throughout, and a nice area rug in the living
Kitchen is complete with cutlery, proper knives, pots, pans, dishes and
glasses and kitchen linens. Coffeemaker, range with oven, large
microwave, dishwasher, sufficient counterspace and an island make
inhouse meals a snap, and will save you a bundle on going out for meals
3 times a day. Bring your perishable condiments, buy food for the
fridge and enjoy the atmosphere and the savings.
There is a very large Florida room off the kitchen to enjoy meals.
Great atmosphere with a flagstone floor and cedar shingles on the
walls, a large settee and chairs, and a ton of books to browse. For
families, the result is actually 2 gathering rooms on the first floor,
the Florida room for the adults to converse in, while easily keeping an
eye on children watchng TV in the living room.
Tucked under the stairs on the first floor are a full size washer and
dryer, which means pack a lot less, do a few loads of laundry, and
travel light, especially if you are flying in to MA.
UPSTAIRS- Is a large master suite with 2 queen size beds, with a
folding partition wall that can be used to create 2 separate, private
sleeping areas. Sound will penetrate. This master bedroom has a large
closet, 4 sash windows and a TWO walkout doorwalls to a private deck
that is big enough for 3 or 4 people to easily and comfortably sit and
have coffee, looking down at treed private yard that is a very pleasant
view and a great way to start the day.
From the beds, looking thru the
doorwalls, you feel like you are sleeping in an amazing tree house.
The beds are excellent. These are not Grandma´s old mattresses taken
down to the Cape, which you will appreciate.
Just steps down the hall is a modern bathroom with tiled floors and
walls, a very large sink and moderate sized vanity, a bath/shower
with sliding glass doors (no cheap shower curtain in this home!) and a
First class linens and towels are provided, so all you need are your
