About the property

Charming Boat Like Apartment On The Bay Is Fully Equipped, Central Location!

This Charming two story studio apartment has an amazing view of the Provincetown bay from both levels. Follow the short path to take a dip or fly a kite at any time of the day or enjoy the starry sky at night. This property is reminiscent of being on a house boat with the bright, airy and fully equipped. Everything you need to feel at home in the newly remodeled galley kitchen and equip with new appliances, and pantry items. Though it is steps away from restaurants, bars, galleries, live entertainment, shopping and the best people watching in Provincetown you might choose to sit on the deck and watch the light change all day and into the evening. In the event that you choose to stay and have your meals “at home” you may cook inside or on the outdoor grill provided. On the second floor there is a cozy and comfortable living space for two. A sofa sleeper and love seat are in front of the two windows looking over the deck and a spectacular water view. You will also find a propane stove/fireplace in the living area to keep you toasty on rainy cool days or in the off season.

If you like to watch television at night and rest up for your next day of vacation a 42' flat screen smart tv with surround sound and Netflix are mounted on the wall, just press a couple of buttons on a remote control and enjoy. You will be able to watch the boats or gulls from the queen size bed dressed in white soft fluffy sheets and pillows of 1000 thread count cotton bedding. There are sun blocking blinds and air conditioners on both floors on hotter days and additional fans if you like to feel the breeze blowing.

I must point out that like a boat, there are narrow stairs in this apartment, so please consider after viewing the photos if this is the rental for you. I want you to be as comfortable and safe as possible on your vacation so that you can love Provincetown as much as I do. there are up and down blinds so you can see what you want block out what you prefer.

Being right on Commercial street we do not have parking included in this Property, I do however have an opportunity for you to park at a discounted rate upon request a short distance away. You are welcome to bring kayaks and bikes just ask and I will let you know where to store them as well.

Ipod docs on both floors, wireless internet , towels and beach towels for two are provided for your use. We change all of the linens in the little gem each week and triple sheet so you can rest assured that it is a very clean and comfortable stay.

This also means unfortunately no pets or smoking allowed here, so everyone can enjoy a clean and allergy free stay (We’re sorry no exceptions).

I do provide a rental agreement for you and my protection.

About Sandra Alsante

I have enjoyed this view for 8 years with friends and had lots of laughs. Now I am sharing it with all of you. I ride my bike to work with a smile on my face everyday as I say good morning to locals or visitors enjoying the day. I hope that you will get to say good morning to them too.

Sandra Alsante purchased this condo in 2013

Why Sandra Alsante chose Provincetown

I grew up in Upstate NY, spending most of my summer weekends on the water with good friends. When I first visited Provincetown I knew that I would live in this magical place. I set a goal for myself and to the year moved here. 5 years later I found this little boat like apartment and I enjoy the magic everyday all year long. I recently purchased my little piece of heaven. Now, I am glad to be able to share this amazing little space with others and hope that they appreciate all that the location brings to them.

It is wonderful to be able to be in the thick of the shopping area, walk outside and take a left to the beach or a right to go find a restaurant, a bottle of wine at the store to share on the deck, a movie, a live comic, drag show, club, or sit and deck people watch... there are days when I don't even think about where I parked my car. But never a moment goes by that I forget how fortunate I am to have such a amazing view.

What makes this condo unique

One the benefits of this home is that everything is within reach. I can go out to the street and be in the business of the summer. I can sit on the deck and feel like I am at the beach. it is small enough to feel like it is a house boat, the spacious deck is steps away from the pier, fishing excursions, the ferry to Boston, whale watch boats, the bus stop, soft ice cream, a movie, a bike rental, parasailing, around the corner from the grocery store. As a matter of fact unlike the west or east end of town there really is no need to get in the car at all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Here’s what Tucker wrote

“First, let me say that the location is perfect. It is in the heart of everything and still quiet. Sandra was amazing and always responsive. There is everything you need - great kitchen supplies, soft bed and sheets, perfect space for two, amazing view from the bedroom/living room and shared deck space, and a ton of little things you never knew you would love to have. Sandra provides bikes to ride through and around Ptown, chairs to take to the beach, beach towels that are higher quality, both towels that are great, toothpaste, razors, cotton balls, toothpaste, and even a makeup washcloth (brilliant idea). When anything came up, Sandra was on it in a heartbeat. I just can't say enough good about this jewel. If you want a great place to stay, look no further! We will definitely be back. ”

Picture Perfect Views

  • 5 of 5

Sandra's place is very special. It could not be more centrally located in P-Town with the added bonus of unbelievable water views from the deck, kitchen and upstairs. We stayed a week here and didn't want to leave. We spent every chance we could on the deck and never tired of looking out onto the bay. In fact we ate several meals out there because the view was just as good as a lot of the restaurants on Commercial, if not better. Even the 2 rainy days we had were enjoyable in Sandra's Little Gem; we took advantage of them by sitting in the room upstairs and looking out onto the water to watch the storm roll in.

The kitchen is the most well equipped one I've every been in and having all the spices and herbs for your use is really convenient. It's also laid out really well and very functional. The bathroom was well designed and worked well. The plumbing and water pressure was great.

All in all, the place is wonderful. If you're looking for a central location w/ a water view, you'll be hard pressed to find something with better value than this.

Sandra was also extremely responsive and kind.

We were over joyed with our stay at this apartment on the beach. From the moment we booked it, to the moment we left, everything was made easy. Sandra made our stay perfect. Her attention to detail was impeccable.

There is so much that we loved about our time here - I will name a few things:

First, the location is perfect. It is in the heart of it all, and yet quiet as well. Being on the beach for us was the highlight. The apartment, is clean and so well organized. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked as is mine at home . So for me, a total Foodie, I was in heaven. The grocery store is a 10-15 minute walk and an easy walk. The restaurants are plentiful and we never had a bad meal anywhere. The streets are so lovely as you walk that you forget all else. The view from the upstairs and kitchen are simply heavenly. Sandra answered questions, and made herself totally available to help us navigate our stay. The photos on VRBO are lovely, but really do not even do it justice. Being there and waking to that beauty was something else! I cannot wait to stay here again and again! Thank you Sandra!!!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The view of the room overlooked the water, which was awesome when we woke in the morning. Sat on the deck and had afternoon drinks.

We were right in the midst of everything though, so you can be right downtown, but have quiet since the place overlooked the water and not the street. Perfect!

Kitchen was well stocked and Sandra provided everything. Won’t be sorry
