About Gary Marotta

Living and working in Boston as an Interior Designer for many years brought me to Provincetown to vacation and connect with the natural beauty of the landscape.

A part time private art dealer, I recognized the opportunity to open a gallery here and

feature contemporary works of artists I admired and collected. A dream...

gary marotta fine art g-1 opened in 2011 in the East End of town and moved to

162 Commercial Street in the West End shortly thereafter. A reality...

My property on Pearl Street is shared with friends and collectors alike.

g-1 offers established and emerging contemporary artists with a focus on painting, photography, and works on paper. The gallery hosts scheduled openings while keeping regular hours seven days a week through the high season. Year round g-1 is open weekends or by appointment.

Gary Marotta purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Gary Marotta chose Cape Cod

While renting from a friend and colleague through the mid-nineties I set my sights on

a neighbors house which seemed to be a diamond in the rough. When a long time resident invited me into her home which she could no longer take care of I immediately knew this would be the perfect place and project for me. She grew fond of me during our visits and decided she wanted me to live in the house. The rest is history. Removing carpet, paneling, vinyl siding, and concrete sidewalks were just a few of the changes made to the property with a goal of making it feel as though it had remained untouched as a piece of Old Provincetown. Blending mid century furniture and yard sale finds with contemporary Italian design and an extensive art collection was a primary goal of the spaces. The labor of love included the development of a perennial garden to envelope the classic Cape style home and it's exterior spaces.

What makes this apartment unique

This property on Pearl Street provides a balanced experience of old and new, quite yet social, convenient while isolated.

Beautiful, comfortable, perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week with our 2 kids and had a wonderful time. We loved to take our time before going out for daily activities, enjoying the apartment, preparing our meals, hanging out on the private deck, watching movies - so relaxing. The place is beautifully furnished and decorated, bedrooms were very comfortable, and the bathtub with a rainfall shower head was great.

It is very conveniently located on a small street leading right into an excellent coffee house (Wired Puppy), and a path to the town's beach - great to take a walk or go running.

It was early April so not every business was open, but the weather was great (in the 60s F during the day) and there was plenty to do, eat and shop; great time if you want to beat the crowds. We went often to the Squealing Pig bar - good selection of beer, mussels and tasty menu.

Gary was very helpful in getting us settled in, and answered our questions promptly before our arrival. Thank you!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Stylish and comfortable space in the heart of town...this gorgeous unit tucked in the back side of Pearl St affords great access to the hustle/bustle and great access to solitude at the same time. Beds super comfortable...bathroom ultra lux, kitchen stocked w quality cookware and appliances. We enjoyed the small details: fresh flowers and cookies upon arrival, high quality soap, and to-die-for rain shower-head to name a few...

Gary is attentive and thoughtful in his correspondence; a lovely gentleman who made us feel welcome. A Ptown jewel...rent this treasure of a space if you have the chance

Charming Cape Home

I have been traveling to Provincetown for 30 plus years and have stayed at many different places and this home is by far the best ever.......extreme comfort, superb location, beautiful grounds and such a relaxing back deck with beautiful views. This will by far be the place to book for all future visits.

Lovely and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

This property is at a VERY convenient location, while still quite quiet and peaceful. The beach, stores, and restaurants are all within walkting distance. The kitchen/dining/great room area has plenty of space and light, and the deck has comforble outdoor seating for 6 people. The kitchen is completely set up with a full size fridge and everything you need for cooking. Plus washer and drier in the unit! This is a comfortable vacation place for two couples.

We felt very welcome and would return!!

A Lovely Apartment with Fabulous Touches

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is an excellent oasis in the heart of Provincetown. The four of us cooked almost every meal and spent more time than we thought we would in the apartment as the weather was a bit iffy, and we were pleased with the accommodations. First, the bathroom is just lovely. Not only is it beautifully designed with all the latest faucet technology, but Gary leaves out lovely soaps for your lathering pleasure. Next, the kitchen has all the gadgets you need along with some staples, like salt and pepper grinders and fine extra virgin olive oil. The grill and deck overlooking the garden bursting with greenery was a nice addition. The bedrooms were fine. The ceilings are a little low and the mattresses are OK. However, I highly recommend it. Gary's respectful and attentive manner along with the little touches sprinkled throughout, make this an excellent stay.
