About the property

5+ Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Multi-purpose Loft, Study, On the Beach, Sleeps 12

Truly a wonderful home for family gatherings on your own private beach. Its 3800 square feet on over an acre of land provides ample space for family activities in its large living and dining areas while the loft and study provide getaway locations for quiet contemplation or children's play. All have a spectacular view, particularly at sunset, of the bay and Provincetown harbor in the distance. One of the few places on the East Coast where the sun sets on ocean waters. The kitchen has ample room and facilities for preparing meals and snacks for large numbers. The separate master bedroom suite with its king bed has a large bathroom, large closets, and a studio alcove for kids. The 'guest' wing has two bedrooms, each with a queen bed, and a full bathroom. There's a recently-renovated bedroom downstairs with ensuite. Daybeds in the loft, and a fold-out sofa in the study provide additional sleeping locations. Wireless internet access is available throughout the house. If you need to work while away, enjoy the ocean-facing study, with printer, 30 inch monitor, keyboard, and everything you'll need to be productive.

Enjoy the extra features of wide pine plank flooring, vaulted ceilings, and multiple beach front decks.

Swim on the private beach, go for a paddle on the stand-up paddle board, take out the (inflatable) kayak, run on the treadmill, or enjoy playing tennis at the association tennis court, two minutes walk away. And your kids will love the swing set we just added, too.

About Gordon Stevenson

We are two professors who work in the midwest, but who enjoy the seaside for rest and relaxation while, at the same time, continuing our studies. One of us is from Australia and values swimming, surfing, and other beach activities. The other, an American, grew up as a military brat, and always enjoyed summers seeing relatives at the beach in New England. Our two young kids love visiting the beach house.

Gordon Stevenson purchased this house in 2013

Why Gordon Stevenson chose Cape Cod

After spending two summers in Truro, we decided to choose this location as the place to which we could return year after year as our children grow up. We love the beach and the variety of activities we have throughout the area. An amazing place for quiet contemplation, as we're really quite secluded here.

What makes this house unique

Ample opportunities for family fun yet while also providing time and locale to continue research and writing activities.

We also think it's the most beautiful place on earth.

Superb renting experience!

  • 5 of 5

We are just returning home from our rental in Truro & cannot say enough about how impressive & outstanding was the house, better than we could have hoped for. As it is late October, it was absolutely secluded. It seemed it was just my Wife & me and the entire bay right outside. The whole place is amazing, with a great fireplace and a deck that is mind-blowing, just the whole of Cape Cod bay stretching out in both directions, Provincetown in the distance, and (because of the positioning on the horn of the Cape) outstanding sunsets every night out over the water(!) The place is idyllic, really romantic & peaceful. All we could hear was the ocean & the wind. It was actually quite cinematic, it was so lovely. There were no boats moored, at all (that we could see), in the bay, so it was all just ocean and sky...incredible. Excellent water for seakayaking with seals (& no fear of motor boats!). Excellent wildlife with seabirds and hawks and rabbits.

We slept 12 there & entertained 17 easily. Great grill on the deck, huge. The kitchen is also huge, a ton of counter space and two sinks, two refrigerators. Also, which was very nice for us, there was an unusual number of lights and dimmers, so it was easy (& fun) to dial in to the perfect mood. The master bedroom has a massive, comfortable bed with two decks off the room. We slept & awoke to the sounds of the sea, which is a real treat. This was a (probably) once-in-a-life splurge for us, and I can honestly say it was money well spent. We will always and fondly remember our time there. As to the owners/renters, they are highly professional, detail-oriented, and extremely kind people. We hope to one day revisit this home, & highly recommend this house as a rental property.

A very special getaway

  • 5 of 5

We could not say enough about how much we enjoyed staying at this fabulous house. We did not want to leave, there was so much to do. It checked all the boxes, clean, comfortable, spacious, well equipped and tastefully decorated. The owners were very pleasant to deal with and we would highly recommend this house to anyone. The view and sunsets were magnificant. Long walks on the beach, wine tasting at the local Vineyard and a visit to the quaint Provincetown made our stay even more memorable. We hope to stay there again in the future. Thank you Justin, Betsy and Gordon.We loved it all.

family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Eight members of my family spent an extraordinary 4-day vacation at this wonderful property. It is a stunning house perched on the dunes overlooking the bay. There is direct access to the beach. The house is equipped with a fun flotilla--kayak, sunfish, paddle board--beach chairs and umbrellas. It is luxurious inside and out, furnished for comfort and fun, surrounded by decks, one with a professional quality grill. I can't recommend this property more enthusiastically. When you arrive, you will gasp at the views, the grandness and comfort of the house, and you will not want to leave once you settle in.

The house met or exceeded our expectations in every respect. The waterfront views and access to the beach were wonderful. The house was both elegant and comfortable. The kitchen was great for cooking and very well stocked. A lot of recreational options were provided-- stationary and outdoor bicycles, a treadmill, ping pong, etc.-- all in great condition. The house would work well for families of all ages and compositions, including those with young children or teenagers, empty-nesters, and retirees.

Great house, great location, great owners

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Justin & Betsey's house back in September with my wife, 3 children (3.5, 18 months and 2 months), my mother and her husband. Leading up to the stay, I always found Justin & Betsey super responsive to any questions I had, always getting back to me within a day max. When we finally arrived at the house, wow! My wife has been going to the Cape since she was a child and I've gone about 8 times previously and this was by far the best location we've ever stayed in. The house is beautiful and in an amazing location looking over the bay and across the P-town. My kids loved having the beach so accessible and they also loved the play room upstairs! The house was great for a family with kids (and grandparents) because we could keep the kids in our "wing" and give the grandparents some peace and quiet in the morning. The fact that it came fully stocked with toys & books was also a huge bonus. I really have nothing bad to say! We can't wait to get back.
