Although owner's main house is on the property, this studio is situated to be private and owner's presence is not intrusive. There is storage for your bikes and beach equipment in the first-floor 'barn' storage area; it is not a garage, no cars inside.

Peace and Serenity

  • 5 of 5

This truly was an escape. The studio apartment is separate from the house and you have all the privacy, peace and quiet you can imagine. If you wish to just get away for a few days, a weekend or more, I would highly recommend renting this studio. It is wonderful. Carol and John could not be more gracious and lovely hosts.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

After great anticipation, our vacation in this perfectly simple studio apartment was simply perfect. We were 2 adults and 1 dog visiting for a week in late August. In advance of our stay Diane was very helpful and communicative, and during our stay Ryan was welcoming, accessible and very responsive. This is a perfect spot for anyone wanting a quiet, relaxing get away-- like the listing suggests, the accommodations are simple, but they were all that we needed in order to fully enjoy a week in Truro. We did plenty of cooking, relaxing, and visiting each of Truro's beautiful beaches. (This apartment is only a 10 minute bike ride away from one of the most gorgeous beaches on all of Cape Cod.) The location is easily accessible and a short drive to all the attractions of the Outer Cape, but the studio is secluded enough that we never felt like we were in the middle of a tourist destination. We're hoping to visit again next summer!

This Studio is Our Peaceful Paradise

  • 5 of 5

For the third straight my wife and I along with our loyal Cocker Spaniel Clowie spent two weeks in the solitude of the Truro studio. Nestled in the seclusion of the Truro wilderness, this quaint studio has everything to offer our active lifestyle while providing our family the opportunity to spend peaceful nights with all the comforts of home. The availability of Wi-Fi also provides us with the opportunity to (briefly) catch up with the outside world. We love it!!!

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

I have been going to Cape Cod for years and I must say this was the best place we have stayed so far. It was very clean, decorated nicely, and the owners (Melenie and Jay) were so helpful! I absolutely look forward to returning in the future.

Beautiful but not great for those with kids/dogs

  • 3 of 5

The property is beautiful, adequately equipped inside, and very much as pictured, though you can't tell from the photos how close the main house and the neighbors are to the studio. (Very close.) I expected to be more separate from neighbors.

Diane, the owner, was friendly and replied promptly to emails, and the tenants of the main house were on hand in Truro to answer questions.

Ballston Beach is 1.5 miles away. We didn't go to Long Nook beach but the main house tenant told us it was the same distance away from the studio.

We had friends (a couple with 2 small children) decide to come with us for a couple of nights at the last minute, and had our (new) 8-month old puppy with us, so we were not the quietest renters one night hope for, though we tried very hard to be respectful and follow all house rules. But because the studio is right next to the main house and to a very close neighbor, we did not feel comfortable using the grill or yard for fear of disturbing the neighbors, and overall worried a lot that the kids and dog were being a nuisance. We ended up paying for doggie daycare in Provincetown the last two days of our trip (an unexpected expense) to be sure that we were not being a problem.

If you are looking for seclusion (i.e., no one close by), have small children or dogs that aren't very quiet, this is probably not the place for you.

Owner's Response: My listing specifies "4 maximum, best for 2 with occasional guests". This was a party of 3 adults and 3 children, plus a puppy! No, the property is not suitable for that kind of a group. They should find a larger, more secluded (and more expensive!) rental in the future.
