This is the 3rd property in Provincetown we have owned. We have been coming here together since 1983 - we love it!

This house and street are very special. Besides the prime location to be able to walk everywhere, the house itself is so charming and has quite a bit of the original detail.

Had a great time

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house off Bradford street and not a far walk to Commercial st and center of town. All the outdoor living space was amazing, as was the master bedroom upstairs which gave lots of privacy. Kitchen is beautiful and has everything you need. Janis and Ellen were very accommodating and made the booking process easy for me. Will definitely stay again

Beautiful home that had everything we needed and much more - charming, hip and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The location is perfect - close enough to walk to everything and just far enough away to enjoy quiet mornings and evenings. The upstairs deck was our favorite place to relax with coffee and enjoy the amazing view. Thank you Janis and Ellen for sharing your home with us - it was perfect!!!

Beyond expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Great modern home in a quiet part of town, yet just steps away from everything; with all amenities and a great big deck for BBQ dinners. A lot of cross breezes so you can sleep with all windows open. Everything as promised - thanks ladies!

Located at the very tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown has a life uniquely its own, steeped in history dating back and beyond the Pilgrims’ First Landing in 1620 and the Mayflower Compact, but alive today with a cosmopolitan community Almost three-quarters of Provincetown is preserved in its wilderness state as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore Park. The Park provides visitors access to magnificent ocean beaches, nature bike trails and exhibits.Provincetown is also the Cape’s pre-eminent destination for gay and lesbian visitors and residents, proud of its long heritage of a fully open and integrated way of life. Carnival week in August is one of Provincetown’s biggest events. Although Provincetown is a regional public transportation hub with fast ferry, bus and air service from Boston and frequent local shuttle service, it is first and foremost a walking town. You can walk to shops, restaurants and galleries
