Provincetown house description

My summer home is a bright, sunny, and spacious ranch house located in a very quiet location just off Pleasant Street at 11 Carnes Lane in the West End of Provincetown. It is nicely furnished with comfortable beds, and a pleasant mixture of antiques, artwork, and functional furniture. The house has three bedrooms and 2 baths. It is located walking distance to the supermarket, two gyms, as well as convenient to the beach by foot or bike. It is also very short walking distance to the shops, bars, and restaurants on Commercial Street and the Boston ferry boats arriving on the wharf. There is a private deck and patio area with a gas grill, an outdoor shower, and 'in season' large flower pots augment a beautiful garden that surrounds the house. The house is fully equipped with dishwasher, washer and dryer and cable TV, phone, and WiFi - internet. There is parking for three or four cars in the driveway. In the summer there are A/C units for each of the bedrooms and the living room. Off-season there is a fireplace and central heat - the house is fully winterized.
The kitchen was completely renovated in 2012 and the bathrooms in 2011. The house is in spotless condition.

                  Notes:

                  When possible I am flexible with arrival dates, so sometimes it may be possible to start (or end) your rental on a day that better suits your schedule. Off-season I am more flexible on when rentals start and end, as well as the length of stay, but I prefer a 3 night minimum.

                  Payment by check in advance, terms are clearly spelled out in the lease agreement.


                  Cancellation policy:

                  100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.

                  Car: Not Necessary

                  Provincetown is known for its outstanding location at the very tip of Cape Cod. The Cape Cod National Seashore in which Provincetown exists is a magnificent natural area with beaches, extensive bike paths, and stunning vistas. The town itself is a quaint New England fishing village that has evolved into a liberal environment where diversity is celebrated. There are extensive visual and performing art offerings, as well as many shops, restaurants, bars, and dance clubs. Provincetown is easily accessible by car, plane or ferry. Once here, walking or biking will get you virtually everywhere you need to go.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: I am an artist and art teacher living in Washington, DC. I spend most of my summer vacation in Provincetown, but rent my house at various times of the year. It is my favorite place to be.

                  Why the Owner Chose Provincetown:
                  Provincetown is a vibrant and diverse arts community at the northern most tip of Cape Cod. It's historic, politically liberal, and surrounded by thousands of acres of National Seashore land that is held in trust as a recreational and environment asset for all to enjoy.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  What makes my house unique is that it is close to everything, but also located in a quiet neighborhood that can be a nice refuge from all the activities in town.
