This is a wonderful place if you want a real sense of Cape Cod's beauty, serenity, and coziness. We stayed for a week and cannot describe the amazing views across the bay, the sunsets, and the incredible sense of peace, tranquility and rest it gave us. The house is high above the beach and the beach itself was almost empty and very peaceful, with a few strollers walking by. We were there early in the season but doubt it gets really crowded even in August. The place has real Cape charm, does not feel like some high end condo that could be anywhere. Very easy to drive to Provincetown for an evening out or to bike along the shore route. The owner was welcoming and the place felt homey and comfortable. Nothing was lacking. Highly recommended! Will be coming back soon.
Beautiful colors inside and out. So many sweet touches. Obviously well loved. The beach was practically empty even in mid August. The sunsets were to die for. We're in love. We give this house all our thumbs up!
We had a great vacation on the Cape, and this location is fabulous, but the experience wasn't what we had hoped for. Despite being in contact with the owner just a few days before our arrival date, we entered the property to find a mess on the kitchen table, dirty dishes in the kitchen sink, and something soaking in the bathtub. Phone calls and emails to the owner produced nothing. Not knowing how clean - or dirty - the place really was, we decided to find other lodging for the night and see what could be done in the morning. We finally got a call back the next morning, and by noon the place had been cleaned and we were in. No offer by the owner to reimburse us for the first night in a hotel. The cleaning person actually gave us some money, which partially offset our 1st night expense.
Once in, the cottage was OK. Smaller than we imagined. TV didn't work. BBQ hadn't been used in years and we weren't about to be the first to do so.
The location was fabulous, and we enjoyed going into Provincetown for meals, tours, people watching, etc., and then retreating to the quiet of North Truro. The view from the upstairs room and deck were fabulous, as was the almost private beach, which seemed to go for miles in each direction.
