2-bedroom apartment directly on the water in the peaceful East end

Wake up on the beach with a view of three lighthouses in this historic waterfront apartment in the East end of Provincetown.

About Melanie

I grew up in the Midwest, but found a home on the Cape in 1982, and have been living here year-round ever since. The expansive horizon of the waterfront has informed my work as a writer, and countless other artists and writers before me. Provincetown is unparalleled as a place to work, play, raise kids, live alone, find community- it's a special fit for sure, and you've found it. This place- 633 Commercial Street- is it. I'm happy to share it with you.

Melanie purchased this condo in 2001

Why Melanie chose Cape Cod

This compound, formerly the artist Robert Motherwell's studios, has been inhabited by artists, writers, and various thinkers since it was built in 1900. The neighborhood embodies Provincetown as it once was: architecturally intact, friendly, quiet. But it is the expansiveness and beauty of the harbor- the outside of the building rather than what the building contained- that captured us then, and continues to hold us now.

What makes this condo unique

Though the festivities of Provincetown are just a short walk away, stepping onto the deck is an exhale without end. Laying on the bed is like being on a boat out of the weather. Its intimate relationship with the water makes this place like no other, as close as you can be to it without actually getting wet!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Tobias was absolutely perfect in every way. I would say more but I'm afraid someone else will steal him away from us. I just hope he comes back as promised!

Beach house in Provncetown. It was wonderful to walk outside and pick seashells.

  • 4 of 5

A lovely home with quiet neighbors. It was a relaxing place and we enjoyed our ability to make breakfast at home. The only concern was parking, it was tight but we took cabs to the center of town when needed. Overall a great place and we would visit again!

An amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was great, clean, cozy, with great view of the ocean from the master bedroom. There are two beds with closing doors and a third sleeping area, that has a shared hallway for the bathroom, however this did not inconvenience us at all. The deck is shared by a couple of units, but the other owners of the other units are super friendly and great to chat with. Sharing the deck was not a problem at all, with great and easy access to the beach. A must stay place and we go back again for sure

Perfect for a family

  • 5 of 5

Nice open layout of the living room/dining room/kitchen, plenty of comfy chairs and sofa space. Well worn, older with associated quirks but perfectly comfortable for a family. The view from the condo is amazing and during low tide, miles of walking beach. We will definitely try to come back!

Very comfortable, clean, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for my husband, mother, and baby! The big open common room was perfect for our 10 month old to crawl around, and the fact that the condo is on the beach was incredible! It was very easy to walk into town, and also to hop onto Route 6. Great spot. We will definitely come back.

Provincetown Vacation

This rental is adorable! The location is stellar and the peace and quiet added to the enjoyment of our vacation. Needed a little cleaning when we got there but our overall experience was a 10. The owner is lovely to deal with and we would go back.
