The living room and dining room have 2 of the queen size bedrooms off of them,and as you continue through the house to the full eat-in kitchen, which was totally remodeled and updated for the summer season, you also find the newly remolded bath and the 3rd bedroom....continuing on, you come to the king size master bedroom and another new bath, all of this on one level and steps to the private patio in the back yard! The front of the house has a lovely grassed yard and flower gardens w 2 high beautiful trees for shade on the hot summer days. The house has Central A C...As stated this home is steps to everything Provincetown has to offer and enjoy!!! The private driveway has room for 3 vehicles of any size...PS. Please know that this is our home we live in year round so it lives as such...we expect all who stay to treat it as you would your own!! Thank You

About Brian and Kevin
I’ve been in Provincetown since 1980 and have owned Salon 54 since 1988, which by the way is convienently located next door to the house..my husband Kevin and I take great pride in the property..He takes great care of the outside and I concentrate on the details inside.. We live in the house in the off season and open the house up for rental in the summer...
Brian and Kevin purchased this House in 2011
Why Brian and Kevin chose Provincetown
I chose to purchase this property, as it was directly next door to my Salon business...it also was a property that belonged to a couple who owned the house for 64 years and who I became very fond of...when they both past I had the opportunity to purchase the house but passed it up!!! Then in 2011 the opportunity arose again and this time I bit the bullet..so to speak.. So now, I’ve started to update much of the property keeping in mind the look and feel of the house and the Cape...so please come and enjoy!!!!
What makes this House unique
We find the location of the house to be so attractive as it is close enough to downtown and restaurants, but far enough removed from the maddening crowds...of course if that’s what your looking for, as said, it’s a short walk to find...lol

My group and I go up to Provincetown every year for the Memorial Day Weekend but last year we were disappointed in our other rental and we needed to upgrade to a bigger house for this year. I stumbled upon Brian’s home and read some of the reviews which all spoke highly of this house. I spoke to Brian initially to get cost and breakdown and he made it easy with deposit times and due dates.
When we arrived at the house it was so nice to see the the house looked exactly as it was pictured and we were taken aback by how long the driveway was. I do want to make a recommendation though- anyone who parks in this driveway, do yourself a favor and back in because backing out can be challenging depending on the time of day. After we checked over the house we went to go introduce ourselves to Brian at the salon next door. It was really nice to meet him and to be finally able to put a face to the name and emails.
I do want to mention that if you are looking for a home that is close to Bradford street then this is an awesome house. To say it was close is an understatement and the house was maybe a 2 minute walk to the Boatslip and maybe a 5 minute walk to Crown & Anchor depending on how fast you walked. We were actually surprised the first day we walked down it and I remember one of my friends laughing because it was so close that it actually took her by surprise.
On our third night there someone in our group blew a fuse so I had the pleasure of talking to Brian to try to sort it out. Needless to say it was a bit embarrassing and after 5-10 minutes of playing with the fuse box with no avail he sent in a friend to help us. After his friend got there it took him approximately 45 seconds to fix the fuse. For anyone whose staying here... it's the fuse on the top left and really yank it down haha. I do have to say though that Brian did an awesome job trying to walk us thru it and he had a bit of a sense of humor. I mean, after all, what lesbians don't understand how a fuse box works?
Overall, we were super happy and the listing was completely accurate. It was actually really nice to see how the house fit together once we got into it. Pictures never fully explain a house but I believe you will be pleasantly surprised. Brian was great and we didn't have any issues. It was cleaned for us and we did the best to the return the favor for Brian. I highly recommend it and if we have another big group next year it'll be the first that I chose to go back too!
Exactly what we had in mind!
My group of 8 women stayed here for Women's Week and we couldn't have been more happy when we arrived! The location could not be more perfect, just a very short walk to all the fun of Commercial Street. The personal touches we noticed immediately upon entering, such a soft music playing and towels laid out on all of the beds really made us feel at home. The house is more than adequately equipped with anything you could possibly need or want. I would highly recommend this lovely house for your Provincetown stay!
Great vacation home
I spent many summers on the cape, and always loved P-town. I brought my father back here for his 75th birthday.The house was very clean, cozy, and comfortable. It was great having clean sheets and towels available. And we loved the comfortable beds. We used the outdoor BBQ and patio. We also used the separate entrance for the master bedroom. Three car parking! Fantastic location to all that p-town offers. What more do you want in a vacation home.
Great Location. Comfortable House.
6 of us stayed last week. The house was comfortable and well equipped. Literally a stone's throw from restaurants and bars on Commercial Street and a quick walk to the Stop and Shop on Shankpainter. The BBQ, outdoor shower and patio area were a big plus. We would definitely consider staying again.
Very Special Home, with a special history
This was my childhood home, my husband rented it for our anniversary week as a surprise. It was the best gift I have ever received. My parents spent 64 of their 67 years of marriage in this home, and many friends over the years came to visit them and enjoy Ma Lil's cheesecake when they lived there. This home is filled with wonderful memories and guests were always welcomed. I was more than thrilled to see the love and care that has gone into the old homestead by the present owner. Clearly he has taken great pride in this beautiful gem, it is immaculate and extremely well stocked with everything we needed during our stay.
It always has been and still is the perfect location for all that Provincetown has to offer, walking distance to entertainment, restaurants, beach, biking, grocery shopping, ect, ect. Unlike so many other properties in Provincetown it has more than ample parking, 3 cars can easily fit in the driveway.
Huge hugs and special thanks to the owner ( Brian) for the Anniversary flowers and bottle of wine you left for us during our stay. If my parents were alive today they would give it 10 STARS... We'll be back !
Great House and location
great house to stay at with friends, week stayed here this year with friends for a week. The house was beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed. The house is well taken care of and a lot larger then the pictures of the front might suggest. The owner was great to work with and made our stay easy. Also the location is perfect short walk to commercial street ( close to boat slip) and walking distance to stop and shop. Great place great experience.
This property is located 1 block from the Boatslip down the street on Bradford St. It affords you the convienence of being close to everything but the space and quietness of not being on the main st...Really one of the, if not The Best Location in town!!!
