About the property

3rd floor condo one block to town beach, 1 bedroom, 1 full bath, sleeps up to 4

Our large loft-like condo is a 3rd floor penthouse featuring privacy, quiet, and unmatched convenience: just steps to Town Hall, galleries, restaurants, and town beach. With 11-foot ceilings, the condo’s airy spaciousness inspires relaxation from the moment you walk in. Amenities include large kitchen with dishes and utensils; TV (Roku and Netflix) and stereo with Bose speakers and DVD player; full bathroom with tub and shower; plenty of towels and linens; and a large shared deck with lovely views. Our penthouse is ideal for couples or families (sleeps up to 4), with queen-size bed and full-size futon/sofa. Deeded off-street parking with an assigned space directly next to the building. Secure wireless internet included.

The Penthouse is close to everything!: We can't say enough about our fantastic location. In the center of P-town, it's literally a few steps to all that Provincetown offers: the galleries and boutiques of the East end or the shops and restaurants of the West end. The town beach is only two blocks away. All the well-known gay bars and clubs are minutes away as well: Crown & Anchor, the A-House, the Boatslip, etc.

We take care of all the details...: Our penthouse condo contains everything you may need for a comfortable, relaxing vacation. The roomy kitchen contains just about any utensil you might need, as well as pots, pans, dishes, and glasses. There are plenty of towels for the beach, and two lightweight beach chairs to take with you. Curl up on the sofa and watch a DVD. (The Bose speakers sound fantastic!) Clothes get wrinkled in your suitcase? There's an iron and ironing board.

Our condo is quiet, spacious, and comfortable. It is a large loft-like studio with 11-foot ceilings. Located on the top floor of a historic three-story building, with no unit either above or below, the condo is blessedly quiet and peaceful. The living area has a comfortable futon/couch that folds out into a full-size bed, plus a queen size bed in the bedroom area.

About Matthew Murphy

Hello, we're Matthew and Tony, your hosts. We absolutely love our condo in P-town and are sure you will, too! We have owned and emjoyed this condo for over a decade, and we take great care to insure that 'The Penthouse' has everything you need for a comfortable and enjoyable vacation. We live in the Boston area, and come down to Ptown often in the off-season, and enjoy sharing our place with tenants during the summer season.

Matthew Murphy purchased this condo in 2006

Why Matthew Murphy chose Cape Cod

We loved 'The Penthouse' from the moment we walked in. It has high ceilings and a feeling of spaciousness, a large, well equipped kitchen, and cozy well decorated living and bedroom areas. Our location is directly in the town center, close to shops, restaurants, galleries, bars, etc. We also have the condo well stocked with linens, bath towels, beach towels, and even a beach umbrella.

What makes this condo unique

In addition to being close to everything - just steps to the town center and town beach - it's also quiet and peaceful. No one lives above or below our 3rd floor unit, so there's a nice sense of privacy. Wireless internet is included. We have one assigned parking space.

Location perfection

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay at Matt & Tony's. The place was centrally located and it was a very spacious studio. The home also had everything you'd need for a fun PTown vacation; beach chairs, toiletries, and nicely stocked kitchen. Thanks a bunch guys!!!

Lovely apartment, wonderful host

  • 5 of 5

Matt was wonderful to work with - caring, hospitable and all around helpful. Even more so, we love his apt, which is a block from Commercial, less than 5 mins from MacMillan Wharf, a 10 mins walk to the Pilgrims' Monument and 2 mins drive from Stop N Shop. If you enjoy vintage buildings, this is a top floor oversized studio atop the Odd Fellows Building, circa late 1800s. The apartment is well laid out and Matt has done a fabulous job of sectioning off living room from bedroom, decorating and creating objet d'art, and creating a wonderful home-magazine vibe. Kitchen and bathroom are good sizes (esp the bathroom which is huge). There is a lofted space measuring about 15' by 5' which my two girls (4 and 10) had used as their "playroom" -- it was more than perfect. Futon in the LR has a good quality mattress and is nice and firm, and bed in the bedroom is cloud-like soft -- so there is something for everyone. The location is better for heavy sleepers than light sleepers, given its proximity to Commercial and the Church. Personally, we enjoyed listening to the charming chimes of the Church bell. Highly recommend.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Matt and Tony's lovely apartment over the July 4th holiday week and have a wonderful time there. The apartment is clean and tastefully furnished, with everything we needed, including beach towels/chairs/umbrellas, great kitchen, and comfortable queen-size bed. It's a very bright apartment, so bring eyeshades if morning sunlight will disturb your sleep. We had our small dog with us, who thoroughly enjoyed walks in the neighborhood. Best of all is the location, smack in the center of town, walking distance from everything you want or need. We can't wait to go back!!

Perfect for us!

  • 5 of 5

After the place we stay each year was sold, we were in desperate need of our new 'forever' vacation home... and in this beautiful place, we found it! We were so lucky to have the owners in town when we arrived; we were able to meet up with them and have them show us in and around the condo. Close to everything makes it easy to transition to the many aspects of the day and night in PTown. The condo itself is adorable and set up perfectly. We always come at the end of the season and expect the level of cleanliness to be a little lower... not here! The place is great. It has everything we need to in eat, enjoy coffee on the deck, have visitors, a place to keep our bikes, whatever. Quiet and private, too!

Needless to say, we love it and are headed back this summer... and each summer after that!

Thanks so much Matthew and Tony!

Great location and a beautiful space.

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here twice and thoroughly enjoyed it both times. The location is convenient to everything in Ptown. The views from the windows of the apartment are lovely. The kitchen is well-equipped, if you want to do some cooking and the property owners are pleasant and professional to deal with. We highly recommend staying here and I am sure we will again.
