A review from 2008: Review Title : 153488 - 'Loved it!'

'This rental was even better than it seemed on paper. The location is ideal: center of town but just far enough away to avoid party noise. Much better decorated than most rentals: everything was spare and well designed.

The beds were extremely comfortable, the owner was very helpful and non-intrusive. The second story deck lets you be outside in sun or shade and the apartment is always bright from the numerous skylights.

About Shelley Jennings

Shelley- I am on the property gardening away on the first floor.

Shelley Jennings purchased this apartment in 1994

Why Shelley Jennings chose Provincetown

This home had been in the same family since 1910. The Meads were the 2nd owners. These were the homes to the portuguese fishing families that came to Provincetown.

Cozy Apartment In Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

First of all, our host was great. Also, I was astounded at how quiet the apartment was (considering it is a short distance from Bradford). The kitchen is perfect for a vacation and bright and new. The abundant skylights meant I spent too much time staring up at birds flying overhead. We had a great stay!

Once again 2 weeks spent at this property was ideal. This is on a quiet street, and yet 1.5 blocks away is Joe coffee, a popular gathering spot right smack in the middle of everything. Close to beaches, restaurants, grocery store! I think next year I'm am tempted to stay 3 weeks!

Sweet and cozy place!

  • 5 of 5

This was such a great spot for a friend and I for the long Columbus Day weekend. Shelley is a great host, and has done an amazing job designing and furnishing the apartment. Very comfortable and thoughtful layout, lots of towels and well equipped kitchen. Quiet, but so close to town. Wish it had been longer and that we'd gotten to use the great deck more!

Great location and great apartment with deck!

  • 5 of 5

Great 2 bedroom apartment. Shelley is very easy to work with and is a great host!

Great deck and very comfortable 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment with a washer & dryer. Lots of light! One block to Joe Coffee & Commercial Street.

If you are wanting in the middle of town, but off the beaten path by one block, rent from Shelley! You will enjoy your stay!

Thoughtfully restored home in the center of town

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say how much I enjoyed my 2 week stay at this property. To be a one and a half block walk and be where its all happening was a major plus……Clean, private, quiet…….all the amenities one could want or need. The space was appointed with furnishings that created a warm and cosy feeling, yet not shabby-everything being well maintained. Beside being a wonderful host, Shelly is an award winning dahlia enthusiast, and the dahlia display in her garden was a joy to see each day on my walk to Joe's for morning coffee! Of course there are many musts when visiting provincetown………the restaurants can't be beat…….but don't forget the wonderful choices in nearby towns. This year a day in Chatham was particularly fun and seeing the fish boats come in was a highlight……..and a memorable meal was had at The Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet……….if going there check out Preservation Hall. I saw the NY Film Festival showing of short films! ………………….next year I will be hard pressed to decide when to go to provincetown -usually arriving in august……...but mid to late september was glorious- but one thing for sure, I'll be staying on Winthrop Street!
