Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ernie,

We have all returned home by now and I want you to know how grateful we are to have had this very special time at your unique Crestview Circle home that welcomed us at every moment. As you had predicted we had sun and clear skies most of the time but also knew right away that no matter the weather we would have a great time indoors too with all that space to spread out, gather and withdraw. The views from the living rooms and all the bed rooms are spectacularly beautiful, some nights with gorgeous sunsets. We loved the beach - so empty at this time of year -, some of us even went swimming ! Cooking the meals in your spacey well equipped kitchen was fun and much preferred to going out for dinner. All together: it could not have been better.

Thank you again

Self-Contained Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This Truro home is so lovely that we have spent three weeks there over the last two years! The home is light, bright and spacious with truly spectacular, panoramic western views across Cape Cod Bay. The beach is wonderfully and surprisingly deserted; the water is relatively calm and great for swimming.

Sipping wine and nibbling on appetizers while admiring the sunset across the water was the perfect way to end the day. And as a special treat, when the sun dips below the horizon you are then greeted with the twinkling lights of Provincetown!

The constant breeze off the bay pouring through the over-sized windows was reminiscent of nights spent at anchor on a sailboat...except (and this is a big except) with all the creature comforts at our fingertips! The kitchen is well-equipped and the beds are simple and comfortable.

The floor plan allows for a separation of space so that even when the house is full of people you enjoy a sense of privacy and can "get away" by yourself.

While we had all kinds of plans to explore the outer Cape during our stay, the house and surroundings proved so alluring that none of us left this self-contained paradise all week!

Ernie, the owner is a true gentleman, and he was very responsive when we had some challenges with our internet connection.

Fabulous house and location

  • 5 of 5

This is the most amazingly beautiful vacation destination. The house is stunningly beautiful and spacious even for a large extended family. Every one of the 8 bedrooms has a water view of Cape Cod Bay, Provincetown and the beach lined curve of the Cape. The two large living rooms, dining areas, open kitchens and multiple decks provide plenty of room for people to spread out. The private beach in front of the house is easily reached by stairs down the dune.

Truro's main ocean beaches are only a couple of miles away.

Amazing property and perfect home for large group

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have been happier with this beautiful home and location! We spent a week here with a large group of family members and had such a wonderful time. The large common areas are perfect for big groups. The views of the coastline are just fantastic and you can't beat the proximity to the beach. Owner and caretaker are both very accommodating. Would return in an instant.

Just what we needed!

  • 4 of 5

The accommodations were perfect for our large group. Our ladies group this year included 13 and there was plenty of room for us all. The views from each bedroom were amazing. The kitchen and dining area were spacious and we never ran out of hot water which was a plus! The beach is private and the large deck was perfect to watch the amazing sunsets from. We had a wonderful time!

Second visit, just as lovely as first

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay here, first time was early Spring a couple years ago, this time fall for a family wedding being held in the area. This home is bright, clean, spacious, and the views just can't be beat. Owner is responsive and accommodating. We had 11 people staying here, and had plenty of room to allow everyone their space, and, to allow us all to hang together. Well equipped kitchen. Beach is stunning, and private. I can't wait to return.
