About the property

- 3 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 6 comfortably

My summer home is a bright, sunny, and spacious ranch house located in a very quiet location just off Pleasant Street at 11 Carnes Lane in the West End of Provincetown. It is nicely furnished with comfortable beds, and a pleasant mixture of antiques, artwork, and functional furniture. The house has three bedrooms and 2 baths. It is located walking distance to the supermarket, two gyms, as well as convenient to the beach by foot or bike. It is also very short walking distance to the shops, bars, and restaurants on Commercial Street and the Boston ferry boats arriving on the wharf. There is a private deck and patio area with a gas grill, an outdoor shower, and 'in season' large flower pots augment a beautiful garden that surrounds the house. The house is fully equipped with dishwasher, washer and dryer and cable TV, phone, and WiFi - internet. There is parking for three or four cars in the driveway. In the summer there are A/C units for each of the bedrooms and the living room. Off-season there is a fireplace and central heat - the house is fully winterized.

The kitchen was completely renovated in 2012 and the bathrooms in 2011. The house is in spotless condition.

About Nicholas Ryan

I am an artist and art teacher living in Washington, DC. I spend most of my summer vacation in Provincetown, but rent my house at various times of the year. It is my favorite place to be.

Nicholas Ryan purchased this house in 2002

Why Nicholas Ryan chose Cape Cod

Provincetown is a vibrant and diverse arts community at the northern most tip of Cape Cod. It's historic, politically liberal, and surrounded by thousands of acres of National Seashore land that is held in trust as a recreational and environment asset for all to enjoy.

What makes this house unique

What makes my house unique is that it is close to everything, but also located in a quiet neighborhood that can be a nice refuge from all the activities in town.

Look no further.

  • 5 of 5

We always have a wonderful time in Ptown but staying at this home was the icing on the cake!. I definitely recommend staying here. It's a couple of blocks away from Commercial St. so it's a very quite neighborhood. It has 3 parking spaces and a great BBQ area. Beach towels and chairs are also available. The owner and home caretaker respond quickly for assistance with your needs. Great time! Thank you, MLB Silva & family.

Wonderful accomodations, definitely going back!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to P-Town last year for the first time together. We loved it so much, we decided to come back with some friends for the week. Fortunately, we found this property and decided to try it out. We are so thankful we did as we had nothing but positive experiences. In fact, we loved it so much, we are hoping to make it an annual trip. The owner was responsive and so friendly. The property (inside and outside) was clean and well maintained, just an all around quaint and charming home. Everything in the home was just as shown and detailed in the property description. In fact, there was more supplies than expected including Beach Towels, Laundry Soap, and Suntan Lotion just to name a few. I highly recommend the house, you won't regret it.

Lovely and very quiet house in the West End

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying at Nick's house. He did everything possible to accommodate us and made the whole booking process easy. The house is situated in a very quiet little lane but within walking distance of restaurants, coffee shops and everything else the West End of P-town has to offer. It is notably only a few minutes walk from Victor's restaurant which is one of the best in P-town. The Herring Cove and Race Point beaches are only a few minutes drive away. The house is exactly as Nick describes it and the photos almost do it justice but it is even nicer in reality! Loved the personal art work in the house and the deck out the back which we made good use of as the weather was so warm in the evenings. We had a fantastic vacation here and if someone is looking for a quiet house only minutes walk from the busy West End then we would recommend it. Thanks Nick!

Charming cottage in the West End

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home in May--pretty late in the game for Ptown rentals--and were worried that it couldn't possibly be as charming and beautiful as it looks in the pictures. Our worries were totally unfounded: this house is every bit as wonderful as it looks in the pictures. It is in immaculate condition, spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated inside and out (the landscaping is so beautiful that you might not want to leave to go into town), with a well-stocked kitchen, tons of seriously good, heavy duty beach towels, and clearly written instructions for all the appliances and electronics. Plus, it's in a great location. We were hesitant to rent north of Bradford, but this is just barely north Bradford. It is an easy walk down Pleasant St. into the heart of the West End, and yet when you're here it's peaceful and quiet. Nick, the owner, was great about responding to messages promptly and thoroughly, answering all our questions and even questions we hadn't thought to ask. He's thought of everything to make this house a comfortable place to vacation. (I almost didn't post this review because I don't want the secret of this amazing place to get out!)

Great house - quiet and convenient to everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying here last summer. House has everything you need and was spotlessly clean upon our arrival. We could easily walk to everything and the beach is a short walk or bike ride. All we needed to bring was our clothes and suntan lotion!

Provincetown is known for its outstanding location at the very tip of Cape Cod. The Cape Cod National Seashore in which Provincetown exists is a magnificent natural area with beaches, extensive bike paths, and stunning vistas. The town itself is a quaint New England fishing village that has evolved into a liberal environment where diversity is celebrated. There are extensive visual and performing art offerings, as well as many shops, restaurants, bars, and dance clubs. Provincetown is easily accessible by car, plane or ferry. Once here, walking or biking will get you virtually everywhere you need to go.
