Magical West End Townhouse w/ Panoramic Roof Deck

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,152 sq. ft.
Property type townhome
Minimum Stay 3 - 7 nights


About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6

Charming, four-floor Lilac Court townhouse in the West End of Provincetown. Perfectly situated on a quiet street near Shankpainter Pond, yet just a few blocks walk into town. End unit has large windows on three sides looking out on the Provincetown Monument and a beautiful garden courtyard. Each guest bedroom is on its own floor, with a light-filled living room, kitchen, dining area, and small deck on the top level. Above the top floor is a large roofdeck with panoramic views across Provincetown--from Race Point to Provincetown Harbor. Deeded parking and everything you can think of is provided (appliances, stereo system, gas grill, etc.) The house is full of fun works of art from around the world. Guests tell me that they find the house a very magical and special place.

NOTE: Everything has been made even more beautiful this year with all new furnishings and decor. Brand new, ultra-quiet zoned air conditioning is now installed in each room.

I am looking for renters who will enjoy all the special touches and treat the house kindly; if you're looking for a place to get rowdy, this is not the right condo for you.

About Jonathan Rotenberg

I have been traveling to Provincetown every summer since the year I was born. Provincetown and Cape Cod are very special to me. I feel unbelievably blessed to be able to have a home in such a beautiful, quiet location.

Jonathan Rotenberg purchased this townhome in 1996

Why Jonathan Rotenberg chose Cape Cod

I looked at more than 30 properties over the course of 2 years.

What is really remarkable about this location is that you don't need a car—everything is within a short walk or bike ride. And yet, you also feel far away from everything. It's a very quiet Street and the condo is located close to Shankpainter Pond.

What makes this townhome unique

The condo is amazingly well designed for adults on vacation. Each guest (or couple) gets their own private floor of the building.

The living room, kitchen & dining area are on the top level, affording gorgeous views of the Provincetown Monument and Provincetown Harbor.

The most delightful surprise, though, is the expansive roof deck. Except when the foliage is in full bloom, you can see all the way to Race Point Beach in one direction; Shankpainter Pond in another; and Provincetown (and the Harbor) in another.

Perfect vacation rental to enjoy a summer stay in Provincetown..

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect. Close enough to walk to town yet far enough for peace and quiet. The condo was clean, bright and well stocked. It provided privacy for each couple with bedrooms on separate floors. The kitchen and living room was large enough for all 6 of us to cook, eat and watch tv in comfort. The rooftop deck had table, lounges and chairs to afford a wonderful place for afternoon drinks and snacks while enjoying the magnificant view. We will definitely return soon.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in 5 places in Ptown, and this was the best. Nicely maintained, quiet, great location. A few other notes:

1) A/C was perfect--quickly cooled any area

2) Rooftop was very pleasant

3) Host left detergent, soap, toilet paper supply--very considerate.

4) Superclean--everything was nicely kept

5) Nice area for bikes on side of property

Very good job on this.

Property is well maintained and exactly as advertised

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I enjoyed our stay in this property in July 2017. It is well-maintained, clean, and exactly as advertised. The location is great. It is about five short blocks from the large grocery store (Stop N Shop) and about five short blocks from restaurants and bars on West Commercial Street. The view from the rooftop is great - excellent view of the Pilgrim Monument. The Boat Slip is less than ten minutes away on foot. Provincetown Bike Rentals is only three blocks away. Internet in the condo was very reliable. I definitely recommend this property and owner. Jonathan was very proactive and responsive via email prior to our trip. He provided additional information about the area, parking passes, and ensured that we had the information we needed for a successful rental. He was very accommodating. The bottom floor (basement) has the largest room with a king bed. There are two other bedrooms (level 1 and level 2) which have queen beds. The 3rd level is a kitchen / living room area. The 4th level is a rooftop deck. This unit is not for someone who is uncomfortable with stairs. One of the things that is especially nice is that this is an end unit, which means additional windows in the bedrooms on the main and second level... and also the best views from the rooftop deck.

Great vacation for the Fourth!

  • 5 of 5

Overall a great property! Would stay here again! We stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed the rooftop deck for dinner and sunset viewing. This house definitely has a lot of stairs with all the levels, so there were many times we resorted to texting out of laziness. The rooms / bathrooms were clean and updated. A nice bonus of AC throughout the house, as well as additional doors on some of the levels to cool down specific areas. Please note the basement room does not have a separate bedroom door from the hallway / stairs down. Super close to Gale Force bikes and the Stop & Shop grocery store. Plus this is an end unit so you get additional windows. Loved having the electronic key code too. Thanks for an amazing rental!

Fantastic property a short walk from town

  • 5 of 5

A couple of friends and I stayed here over Columbus Day weekend and it was the perfect spot. The photos are very accurate - if anything the townhouse is even nicer in person. The outdoor space is great - the panoramic roof deck is awesome and there's also a smaller deck off of the living room / kitchen level. The bedrooms are spacious and feel very private being that they're each on separate levels. The residential neighborhood is nice and quiet (at least during the off-season) and centrally located. It's a 5-minute walk to Commercial Street while also located close to Stop & Shop and a short drive to the National Seashore beaches. There are 4 levels of living space (including the roof deck) which results in a decent number of stairs as previous reviews have indicated but we found them to be a good way to burn off some of the calories from eating and drinking our way through Ptown all weekend. One small thing that made the weekend that much easier was the keyless entry - the townhouse is accessible by entering a code on a key pad thus preventing the need for anyone in the group to be "in charge" of the keys. The owner, Jonathan, is very responsive and couldn't have been more helpful. He provided plenty of suggestions for things to do in the area and made himself available via phone/text/email in case we needed anything. I recommend this property and would most definitely stay here again.

There's no place on earth like Provincetown. It's where the Pilgrims first discovered the New World...a very old New England fishing village...a vibrant community of classical artists, inspired writers, and audacious drag queens...a vacation mecca for everyone...a place that combines the sophistication of an urban village (with many wonderful restaurants, galleries & cultural events) with breathtaking beaches, dunes, forests & moors. It's constantly changing and full of surprises. It's an especially wonderful place for gay and lesbian people to vacation...where you can just be yourself.

Other Activities: Tea Dance, Art Galleries, Dune Tours, Funky Stores, Provincetown Monument
