Great house in quiet private location

  • 5 of 5

Our group came for Carnival week, the majority for the first time in PTown, and had a great time. Patrick is very friendly, relaxed, and accommodating. The house is tucked away, very quiet, but walking distance to town. The inside of the house is beautiful and very comfortable. The living/dining area is very spacious for a large group. My favorite area is the upper sun deck with the water view. Great for relaxing with a glass of wine and getting some sun! Some of us rented bikes and the bike racks at the bottom of the staircase at the back of the house was perfect. The bedrooms were very comfortable, and everything was clean. Patrick's housekeeper was absolutely delightful. We arrived very early as we got in on the early ferry, and she let us store our luggage inside the house while she was cleaning. Overall I would definitely recommend this property for a large group, especially those wanting peace and quiet away from the town noise but close enough to walk there.

Fabulous property in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 (6 adults, 3 kids, and one happy puppy) had an absolutely wonderful time at Patrick's house. The property is spacious, so nobody ever felt on top of each other, the communal areas were perfect for hanging out all together, the fireplace made the slightly crisp nights toasty warm, and the location really can't be beat. The house is secluded enough that it's quiet, but you're an incredibly short walk/bike right into the center of PTown.

The views from the top porch were wonderful and made leaving very difficult. We hope to be back one day soon!

Lovely quiet and comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

This place is great. Clean, well maintained, beautiful house. Excellent open kitchen and common room on 1st floor, quiet leafy location just far enough away from the Commercial Street hubub but still so close to the center of it all. Couldn't ask for more - accommodated our 11 person group quite well!

Thanks for a great stay in Ptown!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful for our family's week-long vacation on the Cape! The floor plan is perfect to allow everyone some privacy while still having plenty of room to come together. We had 3 generations staying there for the week, and all were extremely happy with the accommodations. The owner, Patrick, was a pleasure to deal with. We loved the fact that he was close by in case we had any problems, and he was so patient and quick to help us with a couple of small requests. Being set back a bit from the road, we loved the privacy and quiet; yet we were still just a quick walk to all the action. Hope to be back again in the coming years! Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home with us, Patrick!

an awesome vacation rental in p-town

  • 5 of 5

I can't believe it's taken me this long to write this review. I'll keep it short and sweet. Let me begin by saying, I highly recommend this property. I've rented many a home in P-town throughout the years but I must say, this was the best. The location is perfect. It's tucked away in a very private neighborhood but yet steps away from everything. Once you park your vehicle in the expansive driveway you need not use it for the rest of your stay. Just rent some bikes and your good to go.

The place is immaculate and includes all of the wonderful amenities you could ever need on a vacation. The landlord is wonderful and will be at your beck and call if there are any issues. ( i.e. We had a clogged toilet on day 2 and he was there in a jiffy no questions asked.)

Oh - did I mention how amazing the view is from the second floor deck... If you rent this place your sure to have a good time. See you in July.

226A Bradford St. Provincetown,MA

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for 2 weeks in July and had a wonderful stay. The house is beautiful and in a great location. We could walk to Commercial St in a few minutes and bike or drive to the beaches. Although it was so close to town it is up on a hill and very quiet. The view from the second floor deck is of the bay and beautiful! We had our coffee up there in the morning and spent time reading and relaxing there as well. The house is very clean and large. Nice linens,towels etc. The owners are nice and helpful as well. It was the first time we rented on Homeaway and were pleased with the ease of the rental. We would definitely rent this house again!
