Property 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 with water views and another full bath. All mattresses are brand new and very comfortable.
From this property there is a deeded beach access directly across the street which will put you into the warm waters of Cape Cod Bay. The warm waters of the Bay allow daily swimming and when the tide goes out you can walk for miles.
After a day at the beach you'll find yourself just over a mile away from Provincetown Center where all the fun is. Local restaurants; from clam shacks to fine dining, art galleries, shops, and nightlife.
The town is 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.
The outer beaches a.k.a. the National Seashore (Race Point and Herring Cove) are located within three miles of the house.
Six people maximum.
Pets are allowed with special approval. There is a $175.00 pet fee per pet..

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 Seashore 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 Provincetown and easily accessible by walking, biking, public town shuttle ($2), or cab ride ($6 per person).

Activities in this area include whale watching, Dune Tours, Bike Trails throughout the National Seashore, kayaking, the fast ferry to Boston, Truro Winery for wine tasting and tours, 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.)
