Provincetown house description

Situated in the East End on Mayflower Heights this quaint quiet area captures the imagination of an era gone by. Enjoy your vacation in this spotless, well-maintained, eclectically designed private residence. This hilltop escape provides panoramic views of Provincetown Bay and the coast from the Long Point Lighthouse to Wellfleet . The first floor is a spacious area consisting of a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, and at the front of the house a screened-in porch which captures the fabulous views while you eat, read or relax. There's also a laundry room and a full bath. The second floor has three bedrooms and another full bath. All mattresses are brand new and very comfortable. Deeded beach access, directly across the street, will put you right in the warm waters of Provincetown Bay. After a day at the beach you'll find yourself just over a mile away from Provincetown Center with its local restaurants, art galleries, shops, and nightlife.

From this property there is a deeded beach access directly across the street. The warm waters of Cape Cod Bay allow daily swimming and when the tide goes out you can walk for miles.

The outer beaches a.k.a. the National Seashore (Race Point and Herring Cove) are located within three miles of the house.

From this property Provincetown Center is just over a mile away. Easily accessible by bike, a cab ride or by taking the Town Shuttle bus ($2). The shuttle runs every twenty minutes and you can flag it down right in front of the house.

When it's time to escape from the excitement of the Town, return home and cool off with a quick dip and then a refreshing outdoor shower. Perhaps relax with a cocktail in the large private yard with fabulous water views of the bay. After grilling your dinner enjoy it in the quiet surroundings of your screened-in porch with the same fabulous water views.

Six people maximum. Pets are allowed with special approval. There is a $150.00 pet fee per pet.. Daily and weekly maid service can be arranged as well as advance shopping for your favorite foods and drinks which will be in place for your arrival.

                      Car: Not Necessary

                      Located at the tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown is one of the most picturesque areas in New England. Originally an old whaling and fishing village it has survived to offer a unique waterfront town with splendid views, distinct sunsets, art galleries, great restaurants, bars, shopping, shows, museums and exceptional whale watching.

                      More than half of Provincetown is protected by the National Sea Shore which offers beaches untouched by time, bike paths through the dunes, auto dune tours and the best show in town - the sunset.

                      This property is located just over a mile from the center of Town easily accessible by walking, biking, public town shuttle ($2), or cab ride ($6 per person).

                      Activities include whale watching, Dune Tours, Bike Trails throughout the National Seashore, parasailing, kayaking, the fast ferry to Boston, and golfing. (Public Golf Course 5 miles down the road in Truro, Highland Links. Private Golf Course 10 miles down the road in Wellfleet; Chequessett Country Club.)
