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 Provincetown
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 and welcoming
What a beautiful property. We were at 6a Pearl for a week in mid September, and could not have loved it more! Not only is it gorgeous, comfortable, and quiet, it is literally 1/2 a block to Commercial and the center of everything. And on top of all of that, Gary was a warm and welcoming host! We plan on staying there again in June 2018, and for many visits to come!
Wonderful to have you experience this hideaway on Pearl Street and to learn you had admired from a distance in the past!! Will look forward to your return!
Look forward to every summer here !!!
Everything about it is PERFECT
Lovely to hear your experience of the comforts of home while staying at my property. Will always look forward to having you back again. Best Wishes through the year and until next Summer!!
Beautiful, comfortable, perfectly located
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!
Thank you Ariel, You and your family were delightful guests! The early Spring is a well kept secret and I am glad you discovered this beautiful time of year here and enjoyed the details at my property. Come back soon!
Perfect in every way
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
I always love hearing how much guests appreciate and enjoy this little slice of paradise on Pearl.
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.
Delighted to have you here this Summer and look forward to your future visits here on Pearl Street!!
