Beautiful house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our group has been going to Provincetown for about 20 years and we have stayed in some beautiful homes. This one was a notch above the rest. Every room had its own full bath, all furniture and appliances were high-end, and the home was beautifully decorated with attention to detail. The location was perfect - close to shops and restaurants and a short walk to the center of town. Would highly recommend!

In addition, Joel was very responsive and a pleasure to work with!

There were six family members and we stayed for one week from Sept 9 - 16, 2017. The house clean, well organized and there was plenty of room for everyone. The kitchen was gourmet which allowed my in-laws to cook seafood paella one night and beef tenderloin the next. One of the owners Lee greeted us when we arrived and when we left to ensure we had everything we needed for our stay. The weather and town were perfect. Although we had beach access, we chose to spend most of our time on Race Point beach everyday. Because it was off season, parking was easy, the crowds non-existent, no fees required, and the weather was perfect. This house was perfectly located within walking distance of some very good restaurants and coffee/breakfast places. Would definitely rent again.

Terrific house

  • 5 of 5

This house is a dream - beautiful architecture; large, light, airy shared spaces downstairs - though with just the separate sense of privacy a group or family needs upstairs - and decks, porches and planted areas outside with views of the water. The kitchen is a cook's dream. Perfect location: steps away from everything, but not in it, so it's quiet.

We'd recommend this house to any Provincetown visitor. But please don't take our week - we want to rent it again next year.

Perfect Provincetown Escape

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I went to Provincetown for the first time over the 4th of July week and this property absolutely made our vacation!

The house is located on a side street, right off the main street that runs through downtown. You’re within walking distance from all the action but are set back so you hear very little noise. The house has parking spots if you need them, but we took the ferry and walked everywhere. The house was less than 10 minutes from the pier.

The house is beautifully decorated – featuring pops of color and industrial wood and metal accents that made the house feel very rustic yet homey at the same time. You feel a sense of history staying here but with all the modern conveniences you would want in a vacation rental. The beds in each of the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and all the bedrooms have their own beautifully remodeled bathrooms. The large kitchen serves as great gathering area and has everything you would need to prepare a meal for your group.

One of the many highlights of the home is the front porch (perfect for having a cocktail and watching people meander down the street) as well as the top floor deck (the views of the ocean and town were phenomenal and the sunset we caught one evening was one of our favorite memories of the trip).

The owners have anticipated your every need and have plenty of towels and linens on hand as well as toiletries for the bathrooms.

We knew that we were going to be staying at a beautiful home from the photos featured on this site, but our expectations were surpassed every step of the way.

Do yourself a favor - stop your search now and book this house. You’ll be glad you did.

Close to everything in First Class style

  • 5 of 5

First, the agent was very responsive and helpful during our stay. The property is delightful in every aspect. While parking for 4 cars might be a challenge, 2-3 fit well. First floor rooms are spacious. Each bedroom has a full bath and there is even one on the first floor. Taking a shower in the outdoor space is fun. I recommend the house to anyone who wants a comfortable experience and appreciates high quality design.

This home is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This home is AMAZING on so many levels:

Exterior – When you first walk up to the house, you are initially struck by its beauty and charm. The house and gardens are so meticulously maintained that it sets the stage for more of what is to come. It was not uncommon for people to stop and take photos of the hydrangeas, or to comment on how much they love the home.

Parking – We did have a car and the parking was terrific! The house is on a narrow street (typical of Provincetown) but the double wide driveway makes it very easy to back out into the street.

Front Porch – The porch on the front of the house became one of our favorite hangout spots in the house! It is perfect for morning coffee, afternoon cocktails and the impromptu cocktail parties that seemed to happen as people walking by would stop. The house is on a one-way street so there is not much car traffic, but there is enough foot traffic to make for enjoyable people watching.

Location – If you want a home that is convenient to the center of town, this is it! Strangers and Saints is right at the end of the street so it was easy to walk there for a drink or a quick bite, or to go to Tea Dance, or just to shop. We never needed the car once we arrived! As close as it is to the center, it is still extremely quiet for sleeping.

Owners – Keith and Lee are so responsive and attentive. As owners, they take great pride in the house yet were not intrusive at all. It was nice to know that they were available if we needed anything, yet gave us the privacy that we appreciated.

And then there is the house itself!...

When you first walk into the home, you immediately notice the attention to detail in the home design and decoration, the melding of character and modern amenities, the cleanliness of the home, and an overall sense of luxury. The home is thoughtfully furnished and feels extremely comfortable. Every bedroom is a great size with plenty of storage space, light, privacy…and its own bathroom! The bathrooms are spa-quality, spacious and immaculate. All bedrooms are located on the second and third floors of the house, so they are secluded for those who want to sleep while others are awake.

In addition to all of this, there is also a beautiful kitchen for those who like to cook, a piano for those who like to play, water views from the dining room (and third floor widow’s walk), an additional outside dining area, and an outdoor shower for post-beach!

I cannot recommend this house enough. It is truly one of the
