About Rob (and Jim)
We are a couple who reside in Boston and purchased this home in 2012 for future retirement. We both work in the design profession (one as a professor and tour guide; the other as an architect). Additionally, one of us is from Boston and the other from Brooklyn. We spent the first 6 months of 2013 overseeing and performing various updates and renovations to every room of this house. We have also purchased new furniture for it, and decorated it with artwork and various artistic touches. In 2015 we installed an on-demand hot-water heater and a new front deck. We continue to make additional improvement every year.
Rob (and Jim) purchased this House in 2012
Why Rob (and Jim) chose Provincetown
We have always loved Provincetown. We moved to this house in 2013 from a townhouse, which we bought 6 years prior, in the neighboring association. After looking at dozens of properties, we instantly fell in love with this house. We love this part of town, as it is convenient to the bustling town center (a 20 minute walk!), but near to the bike and nature walking paths of the Beech Forest. We love that we are near the various beech tree forest ponds.
What makes this House unique
The front yard and its setting was the first thing that made us love the house. Most houses in this neighborhood are close to the street, and this one is set back 75 feet with beautiful mature plantings and a pond. The interior is full of natural wood, has a fireplace, and has many cathedral ceilings and skylights, along with a great deal of glass and wooded views.

A wonderful stay
The hosts were accommodating and really easy to work with. The location and garden make it a nice quiet place to enjoy Provincetown without being far from the action. The wood decor inside gives it a really comfortable cabin feel. Definitely looking forward to our next visit!
A very special home
We were a family of 5 and we really, really enjoyed our stay in Rob and Jim's house. The house was originally an architect's house, which basically means it has a very original design and is very nicely decorated. Super comfortable with all the modern amenities and super well located, we did not want to leave! Rob and Jim were absolutely wonderful hosts. Highly recommend!
The absolute BEST!!!
We are so glad we rented this house! If you like a comfortable, clean, spacious, quiet, tastefully decorated place - stop looking, it's right here. This house had everything we needed and even more - patio with grill, waterfall in a small cute pond, beautiful garden, and modern kitchen with all appliances. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king bed, and even the pillows are just right:-) (I usually carry my pillow with me, but this time I forgot it and wasn't disappointed). Plenty of space for clothing - nice dresser, closet with shelves and plenty of hangers. Bathroom has two sinks, a shower, towels, and hairdryer. Second bedroom has a queen bed, dresser, closet. LCD TV in the bedroom and the living room. There is also a very cozy reading room on the first floor. All of the interior of the house is wooden, very clean, quiet and has nothing which can disappoint. For us, a big plus was that the house was located away from any busy, noisy center, but at the same time it's in walking distance (15 minutes) from Commercial street, biking and hiking trails. If you are here for first time, the owners have lots of helpful information about dining, entertaining, even local taxi numbers. Everything is thought through, which makes your stay here very comfortable, pleasant and stress-free. We met one of the owners, Rob and within the first few minutes we felt as though we were old friends, and since he owns a tour company, he gave us a very interesting free tour around the town with lot's of historical facts and details. We had a very relaxing real vacation and liked this place so much, so any time we come back to Cape Cod we will HAVE to stay at this house!
Very convenient to the National Seashore beaches, nature trails, bike trails, and Provincetown Center. 10 minute walk to bird watching pond. Nelson Avenue area, off Race Point Road. NB! Weekly or monthly rentals only, with preference given to 2 weeks or monthly rentals.
