About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms plus outdoor shower, sleeps up to 9

Clean, well-maintained 3 bedroom 2 bath home, just a two-minute walk to Lookout Bluff (private bayside beach) with breathtaking views of Cape Cod Bay and Provincetown. Stunning sunsets. Beautiful calm waters are perfect for swimming, clamming, fishing, kayaking and any water activity you can think of. Wonderfully quiet and safe neighborhood. Classic, charming and comfy Cape Cod home with many nice arty touches. House includes three large decks, waterviews , fully equipped newly-renovated kitchen with quality dishware and spices. Baths are updated, clean and bright. Full basement with new washer and dryer and ping pong table.

First floor includes a sunny kitchen with all usual amenities including a dishwasher, and a small counter with 4 wooden stools for simple dining-in. The carpeted dining room includes a butcher block table, chairs for 8, and a butcher block hutch/desk. The living room has oak hardwood floors, a comfortable couch which seats 3-4, three large upholstered easy chairs and a rocking chair. There is also a flat screen TV, and DVD player. There is a sunny full bath with tub and shower unit, a carpeted bedroom with AC, an oak frame double bed, a twin bed and two chairs.

Carpeted stairs lead to the sunny sun-drenched second floor, which is fully carpeted throughout excluding the bathroom. Second floor has a spacious and romantic master bedroom with a white rattan king bed and matching end tables, a vanity, a large painted dresser, a flat screen TV and DVD player, a futon adjacent to windows with a southern exposure, and sliding glass doors to a large deck with waterviews and plenty of outdoor solid deck furniture. The second bedroom on this level is also very bright, with south-facing windows. The second bedroom includes a queen bed and full-sized futon, hardwood dresser, A/C & full length mirror. There is a newly-painted full bath (with new tub and shower) on the second floor and plenty of closet space throughout. The house has 2 cable TVs, wifi,, DVD players, 10 beach chairs and 2 umbrellas, two adult road bicycles and two children's bikes plus helmets (use of bikes and helmets is at your own risk), charcoal and gas grills, badminton, soccer and basketballs. The three-level deck is great for lounging or watching the sunset and stars, and the top deck offers breathtaking views of the bay, the Provincetown monument and lights, the sparkling ocean and setting sun, and fabulous unobstructed night sky gazing at the stars ! Deck outside the master bedroom is perfect for summer reading or simply dozing off in a comfortable lounge chair.

There are outdoor umbrellas for sitting in the shade, plus umbrellas and sand screws and beach chairs for taking to the beach. There is also a hammock in the shade to take a snooze in. Families with children are welcome, however there are stairs inside the house, stairs leading to the three outdoor decks, and stairs from Lookout Bluff down to the beach, so children should be old enough so that these do not pose a safety threat to them.

Why Liz Gruber chose Truro

We live in the Boston area but have been coming to this Truro neighborhood for the past 20+ years. Our three children have grown up vacationing in the neighborhood, and we have met some of our closest friends on the Truro beaches (Ballston, Coast Guard and Head of the Meadow are our favorite ocean-side beaches). Sunsets are spectacular for southwest-facing homes, so when we saw the chance to own this house, we jumped at the chance. We hope you enjoy the area and experience many unforgettable memories here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Liz, the house was great and comfy. The location perfect. I loved yoga in the morning on the deck!! My only suggestion is rather picky and small in the large scheme of things.

The coffeemaker is very leaky and messy until one gets the exact positioning correct.

Thanks for the tip about the lobster lady. I loved my chat with her. And dinner at Terra Luna was delightful. I hope you get to enjoy your wonderful home this summer. Despite the grey weather I will remember this vacation

fondly.....We were very comfortable in your vacation

home and I wish I was there right now!



From the owners: A brand new coffee maker is now at the house. Sorry about the other one...and thanks for letting us know, our future guests will definitely appreciate it !

great cape cod stay

  • 5 of 5

Great location in a classic Cape Cod style house. Steps away from a beautiful beach, well appointed house, comfy beds and 3 levels of decks with great views. Short drive to Provincetown, great to come back to the quiet!!

Charming cape house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and had everything that we could have needed! Liz was amazing with communication and making sure our group had everything we needed and that we enjoyed our stay. I would certainly recommend this rental to others especially large groups or families since there is ample sleeping arrangements! Thank you again Liz for renting out your beautiful home!

Great place! Would definitely return/recommend!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I had a fantastic Labor Day weekend staying in North Truro. The house is exactly as advertised and didn't disappoint! Very close access to the private beach, and a quick ride to Provincetown. The yard is open but still felt private from the neighbors. Aside from the lack of linens as advertised, the house and kitchen are VERY well equipped. Liz is a great communicator and anxious to make sure her guests have everything they need. Thanks again, I hope to be back!

Charming home in quiet area but still close to what you came to the Cape for

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed this house and renting from Liz very much! It's in a quiet neighborhood but close to the beaches and P-Town, which we really enjoyed. The renting process was very easy and the house had everything to make the stay homey and relaxed. Beach chairs and umbrellas for day trips to the beach; pots, pans, coffee filters, etc in the kitchen; even travel sized soaps and shampoos for the outdoor shower! We also loved the puzzles, games and ping pong table for the rainy days and at night. It was also super convenient to have the laundry there. I think my favorite part was sliding open the bedroom door in the mornings and evenings to have coffee and/or wine while enjoying the ocean view and sounds. Great family "get-away-from-the-hectic-day-to-day-life" vacation house!!

Cape Cod Charm

  • 5 of 5

The home owner made it very personal. She sent us brochures and local suggestions that included where to buy lobsters direct from a fisherman. Felt like our home away from home. Was very charming!!! Would rate perfect if all bedrooms had small tv, and air cconditioning in master .

Gorgeous North Truro, where the sky goes on forever, and the calm and sandy bayside private beach is a 2 minute walk from your front door ! Provincetown is 5 miles away (and very accessible by bus or bike), and includes wonderful restaurants, entertainment, art galleries, shopping, recreational areas (National seashore as well as parks and playgounds) and plenty of fun ! Truro is also adjacent to Wellfleet, which is another beautiful town filled with activities for all.

Check out our other property, located right on the beach in North Truro, listing #3506195. It only accommodates two (2) but is right on the water ! (There are other cottages next door so if you are a larger party, you may find availability by renting a few cottages together).
