About the Property

1 bedroom, 1 Bath apartment (Sleeps 2)

At high tide the water laps under the huge private deck, almost as large as the apartment itself, making you feel almost like you are on a boat when it's high tide. Jump in the water and swim or float away or just sit on the deck, listen to the sound of the water, watch sunrises and sunsets from the comfort of your seat. Even when you are inside the apartment the wall of glass sliders open up to make the outdoor space seem to merge with the indoor space. You can see the water from everywhere - the living room, the cute dining nook, the kitchen, the bedroom area, even standing in the large bathroom looking out while you are standing at the sink brushing your teeth. You'll also enjoy that extra time reading or lounging in bed since you can see right out through the sliders to the deck and the water!

The interior is almost 600 square feet of open space, comfortably and creatively furnished with folk art pieces, the owners' own artwork and nice furniture including a comfortable L shaped couch and armchair. Sit back and enjoy the sun through the overhead skylight spanning the entire width of the living room and experience the warmth of the wide-plank pine flooring throughout or enjoy the large screen cable TV.

There are curtains and electrically-powered shutters for extra privacy and room darkening and a fireplace to take the chill off in the shoulder seasons or for ambiance. The kitchen is gourmet-sized and well stocked, featuring a five-burner, stainless-steel stove and new custom tangerine Corian countertop. And yes, that is the original sign from Gallerani's Cafe, my old restaurant, that used to be just down the street. Eat or cook inside or outside on the gas grill, the choice is yours. The bathroom and shower are large, the latter even having a seat. There's a washer/drier for added convenience.

Cozy, warm, inviting, and relaxing, right on the water. Near all the Provincetown activity, but at the same time away from it all. That is what your westend waterfront rental will offer you.

Car: Not Necessary

Since you are right on the water start off with swimming, canoeing, kayaking, boating of all sorts (rental is not far away). Relish, famous for its baked goods and sandwiches is just down the street. Sals, Victors, the Red Inn, Joon Bar, all good restaurants, are minutes away. You are in the historic West End of town so just walking the street and looking the neighborhood is great. Across the street is the oldest house in Provincetown. Next door is Capt. Jack's Wharf. Bike the fabulous bike trails and out to Herring Cove beach or Beach Forest or Race Point. It's a short walk to the breakwater, Long Point Lighthouse and the Moors, Downtown and all the funky shops and restaurants that make Provincetown unique are a short walk in the other direction. You won't lack for entertainment day or night. Having travelled the world over I think Provincetown is one of the most interesting people watching, shopping, biking places I've been.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: Hi - I'm a retired guy and lovin it. Used to own Gallerani's Cafe so many of you know me as the host with all the crazy outfits. Now I enjoy the luxury of watching the tide come and go, biking, reading, socializing, artwork, travelling, whatever. And with my boyfriend John. Fortunate indeed. I spend most of the year in Provincetown (upstairs from this rental), winter in my house on the Big Island of Hawaii, and the rest here and there.

Why the Owner Chose Provincetown, MA, USA:
I always wanted to live in Ptown for its unique sense of spirit, geography and gay lifestyle and it was a goal to live on the waterfront. I've never looked back after 30+ years in the same place.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
On the water in Ptown is fabulous. It's never dull seeing the water at low or high tide and all the activity that goes with it from boating, swimming, etc. in the summer to the birds and weather all year round. Sitting inside and looking through the wall of glass or outside on the enormous deck/pier you have a real feel for being part of the wonderful environment that is right there. And there's a wonderful warmth to the way the property is situated between the two neighboring properties, one of which is the historic Capt. Jack's Wharf.
