Property description

Someone with great taste and discrimination told us that the Little Darling was the 'classiest place on Commercial Street'*. (To be honest, we couldn't tell how much or what he'd imbibed but heck, we'll take it). But the thing is that everyone who has stayed in our Little Darling has loved it. Really.

Here’s what the Little Darling offers for your comfort.

Most importantly:

We wash the blanket, quilt, and the shams every time. Oh yeah, towels too. And bath mat, of course. And the sheets, the pillowcases. And a couple of other things that slips my mind at the moment.


And then it gets better:

1. SLEEPING: A double bed, very firm. We hate waking up with a sore back (spent plenty of nights in hotels and inns with saggy mattresses). The bed is the best one we could find (well, without going overboard – just say that it wasn’t cheap!). Pillows firm, soft, and in between. Clean set of sheets, four sets of towels (bath, hand, wash).

2. COOKING: Dishes for four, glasses, mugs, cutlery, coffee maker, toaster, microwave, two burner electric stove, pots, pans, (Brenda and I cook regularly. We found that one cook has plenty of room; two do not).
There’s an exhaust fan at the stove that vents to the outside, a small refrigerator just big enough (with a separate freezer for, err, frozen stuff), cutting board, nice kitchen knives, dish drainer rack and drain board, etc. Basically, everything you would need to feel at home, including sugar, salt, paper towels, etc.

Almost forgot: We leave you a brand new sponge.

3. CLEANING: Vacuum, broom, various helpful brushes and liquids.

4. WC: Shower, toilet, sink, plenty of toilet paper, soap, shampoo and conditioner, sun tan lotion, mosquito repellent, hair dryer, a fore mentioned towels.

5. DRESS: Ironing board and iron.

6. COUCH POTATO: TV, Stereo, surround sound, cable, MP3 player connection to the stereo.

7. DIGITAL WILDERNESS: Of course! Wireless.

8. MOBILE: Chargers for your cell phones. Please do not take them home! That would almost be sacrilegious, don't you think?

9. RAINY DAY: Books that take less time to finish than War and Peace, a few games and some movies. An umbrella.

Oh yeah: Don’t work. Explore. Have fun.

Car: Not Necessary

Just stepping outside in Provincetown is an adventure. Explore. You will find the most interesting, quirky, eccentric people, things, and places everywhere.

Like us all, enjoy the freedom to be you. You may even, gasp, find yourself. We did, once. Sadly, we misplaced it somewhere on the beach. It may turn up, some low tide.
