Provincetown: Deeded Beach Access, Perfect for families and groups, 1mi. to town

Enjoy Fabulous Water views & Beach Access from this Historic Beach House.

Situated in the East End on Mayflower Heights this quaint quiet area captures the imagination of an era gone by.

Enjoy your vacation in this spotless, well-maintained, eclectically designed private residence.

This hilltop escape provides panoramic views of Provincetown Bay and the coast from the Long Point Lighthouse to Wellfleet . Water views from just about every room.

The first floor is a spacious area consisting of a fully equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, and at the front of the house a screened-in porch which captures the fabulous views while you eat, read or relax. There's also a laundry room and a full bath.

The second floor has three bedrooms with water views and another full bath. All mattresses are new and comfortable.

From this property there is a deeded beach access directly across the street which will put you into the warm waters of Cape Cod Bay. The Bay allows daily swimming and when the tide goes out you can walk for miles.

After a day at the beach you'll find yourself just over a mile away from Provincetown Center where all the fun is. Local restaurants; from clam shacks to fine dining, art galleries, shops, shows, and nightlife.

The town is easily accessible by bike, a cab ride, uber or by taking the Town Shuttle bus ($2). The shuttle runs every twenty minutes and you can flag it down anywhere including right in front of the house. The shuttle accommodates bikes and pets.

When it's time to escape from the excitement of the Town, return home and cool off with a quick dip and then a refreshing outdoor shower. Perhaps relax with a cocktail in the large private yard with fabulous water views of the bay. After grilling your dinner enjoy it in the quiet surroundings of your screened-in porch with the same fabulous water views.

The outer beaches a.k.a. the National Seashore (Race Point and Herring Cove) are located within three miles of the house.

The best show in town? The sunset is at Herring Cove Beach every evening. No cover charge.

Six people maximum.

Pets are allowed with special approval. There is a $200.00 pet fee per pet. 2 pets maximum.

Daily and weekly maid service can be arranged as well as advance shopping for your favorite foods and drinks which will be in place for your arrival.

When arriving the homeowner will personally welcome you and give you a quick tour of the house and property.

                                                                        Dennis N.

                                                                        Mayflower was a perfect old Cape Cod retreat! The house was impeccably clean and well appointed with everything we needed for our stay. We loved the location which was close to Provincetown yet quiet and secluded with a lovely bay view. Maryellen, the host, was very friendly, very efficient and very hands off after we were settled in. We loved our Mayflower experience!

                                                                        Mayflower Heights

                                                                        Karen O.

                                                                        The Mayflower house was a quiet vacation retreat. The house sits high on a bluff, providing cool breezes and a view of the bay. Although the house had all the amenities we needed, it had a wonderful old fashioned cabin appeal. We began our days with breakfast in the screen porch and ended them with cocktails in the Adirondack chairs. The deeded beach access right across the street was so convenient, as were the buses that took us back and forth to Provincetown. Mariellen was friendly and attentive to everything we needed. Perfect for our family vacation!

                                                                        Jeff M.

                                                                        First, the owner, Mariellen Serena was great!! She met us at the house, went over everything with us and made sure we knew that if there were any problems (Which there were not) she was available to us 24 hours a day. The property is very quaint. It sits up high on a hill giving us great views out the front porch of the ocean. Beautiful breezes were constant coming through the house. The furnishings were comfortable, we liked the old rustic charm of the decor. While I could go on endlessly I will close by simply saying we will be looking to book this house again in the future. Thanks again Mariellen.

                                                                        To future guests that may consider the Mayflower House.

                                                                        Jeff and his group enjoyed their visit as you can tell from their review.

                                                                        I spoke with Jeff after reading his review and noting the 4 vs 5 stars.

                                                                        He said he did in fact mean to give the house 5 stars.

                                                                        I contacted Homeaway to ask them how Jeff could edit his review to show 5 stars. Homeaway said that reviews cannot be edited.

                                                                        This is very unfortunate. Perhaps in the future Homeaway will find a way for guests to modify their reviews.

                                                                        Fabulous time!

Everything you can imagine was provided for comfort and ease, and every corner had something interesting and fun to enjoy. The beds were comfy and even tho it was chilly at night we had lots of warm blankets to stay warm. There was ample room to relax. The small kitchen was well equipped and though we ate out a lot we also cooked some meals. The views were gorgeous and the location just outside town made it quiet and private. It was a short 5 min drive to all the pleasures of Commercial Street. We will definitely be back next year!

                                                                        Loved the Mayflower House

Great location with plenty of parking and a very cozy and comfortable house for six people. Kitchen was well-stocked with all the cooking utensils necessary to cook meals. Comfortable beds upstairs, which as nice since it was rather cool at night. Oh yeah, high-speed Internet connection was a plus! Highly recommended.
