EXQUISITELY RESTORED 1840's HOME WITH A GARDEN UNDER THE STARS
At 'Orion's Hideaway' you'll enjoy a peaceful, private, and perfect getaway! Offered as a weekly rental for the first time in two years and attractively priced! We've recently lovingly restored our classic Provincetown home and created a beautiful two bedroom apartment with great amenities for you. Everything is walking distance, yet tucked away in a very quiet neighborhood. Pine floors and oak cabinets are lovely and airy, sun streams through the windows. The deck is private and spacious and very nice for outdoor dining and drinks, or sit back and catch up on your reading. Private entrance means coming and going and never having to say a word to anyone. The garden is colorful and beautiful; a flowering archway entrance leads to your staircase. Parking is at a premium in Provincetown and we offer an off road space for one car. Plush, luxurious brand new queen beds for a heavenly sleep after a fun day at the beach or cafe sitting. AND an OUTDOOR SHOWER! A rare luxury, showering under the puffy clouds or the stars. Digitized washer/dryer, air-conditioned, and WIFI! On a clear night it's fun to lie on the deck and watch the stars. In winter Orion shines above our house! Life is good here at ocean's edge and we are happy to share it! We look forward to your visit!
Please feel free to ask about rate in June and September and anytime in the off season. Provincetown is a great place to visit anytime of the year!!

About Simie Maryles
Simie Maryles and Moe Van Dereck. We're artists and owner/directors of Simie Maryles Gallery at 435 Commercial Street. Simie Maryles came to Provincetown from New York City to work as a street sketch artist. She had been a studio painter but soon discovered the joys of plein air painting and turned strictly to fine art, showing her work in Los Angeles, Boston and always in Provincetown. Before coming to Provincetown, she travelled across Europe from the Middle East and landed in Paris where a family of wine merchants 'adopted' her and she stayed to study painting and printmaking at L'Ecole des Beaux Arts. She travels often back to Paris and speaks fluent French. Moe Van Dereck is a blues musician, sculptor, sail boat racer, among many things. He was also raised in Manhattan but summered in Provincetown all his life. The pair are well travelled and cultured. They're happy to be helpful and will endeavor to assist in making your stay completely wonderful...They're also extremely busy day and night in their gallery and rarely around...so the advantage is that you're as private as you could possibly wish...
Simie Maryles purchased this Condo in 1977
Why Simie Maryles chose Provincetown
Moe and Simie bought this classic Provincetown house and lovingly restored and rebuilt it. They like the fact that it's centrally located but far enough back from the town center to be very quiet. They have a large flower garden that creates a lovely view from the deck. The roses and honeysuckle emit an intoxicating perfume on warm summer evenings. On a clear night the sky is illuminated. They often watch the stars from the deck In winter when the property is vacant. Orion shines above their house.
What makes this Condo unique
Everything is walking distance, a big plus. But it's very quiet, another huge plus. The deck is your own. Very nice for outdoor dining and drinks. Private entrance means coming and going as you wish, as you like. The garden is filled with roses, perennials and honeysuckle. There's a small organic cherry tomato patch on the side of the house and you're quite welcome to grab a handful, as you wish. A flowering archway entrance to your private staircase, which was a gift to Simie from Moe upon selling the largest painting she had ever accomplished at that time! Designated parking space is great, as it can be a challenge to find a space on the street. Digitized washer/dryer another great plus in Provincetown. Pine floors and oak cabinets are natural and lovely. Sun streams through the many windows in all directions. One bedrooms gets sunrise dappled light, the living room and kitchen the warm glow of sunset on this ocean peninsula. We've just purchase two new luxurious and plush queen beds...a must after a day of summer fun! Air-conditioned and free WIFI, plus a large brand new flat screen TV for a movie on a rainy 'pajama day'. Peaceful for a perfect getaway vacation, but close enough to all the great beaches, lively shopping, fabulous restaurants, superb galleries and wild night life, as much or as little as you like!

A beautiful, charming, and comfortable property.
We loved this unit and Simie's art work, which covers the walls, is beautiful and charming. The rental is close to town, yet in a very quiet area. The furnishings are new, clean, and very comfortable. The kitchen is extremely spacious and had every appliance and utensil we needed for cooking. The owners provided more than we would have expected for a week at the beach, including beach towels, chairs, coolers, and are very conscientious about using non-toxic products for cleaning. We really appreciated this.
Thanks so much for the very thoughtful and positive comments. We loved having you stay...It was great meeting you and we hope you can come back next summer!!
nice place great location
It was a nice place to stay. Bedrooms were a bit small for the queen sized beds (could only get out from one side) and the mattress in one of the rooms was quite soft and sagged in the middle. The kitchen was well equiped. Would definitely consider staying there again.
Fantastic place to stay and great host
The rental unit was everything that one could want for a vacation. We were two couples staying for a week. The location was great- quiet residential area that was about a three minute walk to Commercial street and the bay. It was great having a deck with a bar-b-q that seated all four of us comfortably. The living room had seating for four. The kitchen had tons of cupboard space and it was great having both bar stools and a table and chairs. The bedrooms each had a dresser to put clothes away and a double closet with lots of hangers, and windows that opened. It was a hot week and we appreciated having the air conditioning as well. It was a spacious and clean unit that served us very well and helped us have a great vacation. I loved the outdoor shower and there was space to park our bikes as well.
Simie has arranged a very comfortable space and is a great hostess. She answered any questions we had. We also loved having lots of towels including beach towels. We didn't need them, but there were also beach chairs, a cooler, and a water cooling thermos.
Thanks for a great stay. We would highly recommend it.
Thanks so much! We're delighted you were able to stay and that you had such a great time. It was very, very nice meeting you all...and we hope you can come back for another stay!
Great place to stay for a great vacation
my family loved this apartment. Great location, quiet, amazing tub, a parking spot, and laundry available.
Thanks so much for choosing our vacation apartment. We were delighted to have you stay and so pleased that you had a great time.
We'd be delighted to have you come back any time you like!
place was as advertised
perfect location just 5 min walk to the middle of commercial street ..very spacious clean apartment with two 10x10 ft bedrooms and a huge living space...cabinets everywhere so no problem with storage.. I only saw the owner once for 2 minutes ( the place has its own private entrance) but she was great... every time I sent her a text she responded with 10 minutes
Thank you, Peter.
You were the perfect guests and we would be more than delighted to have you come back anytime. True enough, as a painter with my own gallery, July and August are our busiest months and we're rarely at home...but that's a plus, since the property is very private. I'm so pleased you had a great stay!
Enjoyable stay in Provincetown over Halloween!
We had a great weekend in Provincetown although the weather decided not to co-operate! The place was very clean, had all the requirements to make the stay enjoyable and the location made it very convenient to walk downtown when needed. The owners(managers) were hospitable and made our stay very comfortable and would certainly recommend the rental and plan on coming back for another visit.
