About the property

Accept no compromises! Enjoy your vacation within Provincetown's finest beachside residence. Comprising the entire MAIN FLOOR of Provincetown's landmark Sandpiper Beach House, this exceptionally fine home uniquely combines spectacular waterside views, an unbeatable location in the center of town (on Commercial St at Winthrop), and privacy and luxury throughout. Inside the beautiful period details of this grand residence showcase all-encompassing water views from the master bedroom, living area, dining room and eat-in kitchen.

The kitchen was renovated in 2017 and now contains all the elements a gourmet cook could want. All appliances are from the KitchenAid Professional line, including the gas cooktop, oven, microwave and refrigerator. There is no kitchen in Provincetown that enjoys better views of the water!

Three spacious bedrooms, each with their own queen-sized bed, en-suite bathroom, 175 channels of individually controlled DirecTV and VCR, ensure luxurious comfort. All beds have 100% Irish linen sheets topped by linen duvets.

The living area contains 3 down-filled sofas (including a queen sleeper) and a separate entertainment system with DirecTV, TiVo, DVD and Stereo/CD. A wireless LAN provides 2Mb high speed Internet coverage throughout the home.

Outside, French doors open from the living, dining and master bedrooms onto one of the largest private decks in Lower Cape Cod. The deck is not shared with anyone else. Enjoy some of Provincetown's best water views while relaxing on a teak sun loungers, grilling steaks on the gas barbeque or dining alfresco.

Without prejudice to the above, many guests find that that the best feature is the property's front porch, a long and gracious affair overlooking Commercial Street -- a great spot for making new friends-- and the water-side deck. The ultimate partnership of public and private in one amazing home!

The property has 3 exclusive use parking spaces.

About Michael Mills

We were in Provincetown for Carnival in 2004 and visited some friends who were staying at what is now our home. We absolutely fell in love with it! After almost a year of coaxing, we persuaded the former owners to sell it to us. We now realise in hindsight how incredibly fortunate we were to have purchased an incredibly special property such as this. It is truly magical! :-)

Michael Mills purchased this condo in 2004

Why Michael Mills chose Provincetown

There is quite simply no other property available for rent in Provincetown that compares to this one. It is both on the beach and located in the middle of town. You can immerse yourself into what is going on in town just by sitting on the front porch. Or you can enjoy quiet solitude on the expansive and private rear deck. Our home adjusts to whatever type of vacation you want!

What makes this condo unique

After purchasing our home, we restored many of its original architectural features from 1898. Most of the furniture we brought over from our home in England. Guests tell us that this is quite simply the most luxurious place you can stay in Provincetown.

Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Sandpiper in November of 2006 and it was extraordinary. It has beautiful and comfortable rooms and a well equipped kitchen with a spectacular view of the rising sun. Then, of course, there is the huge deck. There were four of us and it was a perfect place to enjoy Provincetown. Brad and Michael were also attentive in terms of making sure everything was perfect. We'll be back.

A Great Home Base for Provincetown, even in the off season.

  • 5 of 5

My family likes to meet in new destinations for Thanksgiving. We are 6 adults and a dog.

Our thoughts:

The owner: I was really happy about the level of communication I received from Brad. I felt that if I had any questions or feedback I could get an answer. the communication was sparse until about a month before our stay, but picked up right before our stay and at the start.

The home: This is a condo in a multi-unit building, but it's solid. We never heard anyone above or below or outside. The photos are good, but I think the real life view is even better. The rooms are well spaced in the unit, no shared walls, so each couple had privacy when needed. The kitchen surface area was a bit small, but the large dining room table served as overflow if needed. Recycling and trash was easy to manage. All of the appliances and plumbing worked as expected.

The Location: Fantastic. Located at just the right spot on Commercial st. for us: All action was an easy, entertaining walk, but it is slightly distanced from the center of the madness. We were closer to art, coffee, and residential areas and further fromthe t shirt stores and taffy shops.

Pets: We have a "dog-sensitive" dog and Ptown is full of dogs, right outside the front door, 24-7 but inside the unit, our dog enjoyed the big spaces, the pet blankets, deck, and easy access to the beach. For our walks, we took the car out to the beaches and natural areas. I don't think I've seen my dog any happier.

Nice Touches: The daily paper, the ample blankets for pets (so nice!), the large entrance mirror and table, bank of windows in front of the dining table, warmth in cold weather, private bathrooms for each bedroom, large common areas to spend time together, PARKING.

Being Ultra Picky: The kitchen equipment (pots, dishes, glasses, utensils) seemed a bit haphazard and was not well-organized making for a mini treasure hunt. That said, we had everything we needed for a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner for 6. Some of the cabinets needed old cooking supplies (oils, baking ingredients, etc) to be cleaned out and thrown away. A good, heartless purge of the random stuff left from previous visitors would go a long way. Nothing was dirty, it was just piling up. Also the foyer could use a place for coats, but this is probably not an issue in season!

This stay met or exceeded my high standards for location, privacy, and comfort. Thank you Brad!

Best location in Provincetown

  • 5 of 5

This house is in the best location in Provincetown. You can choose from a huge back deck overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and boats or you can sit on the shady front porch and watch the people walk to and from the downtown area. The Carnival Parade passes right by the porch and you are entertained all afternoon. The bedrooms are sizable with a separate bathroom for each one. The kitchen is well stocked if you choose to eat in or you are a two minute walk from some of the best restaurants in Provincetown. We arrived on Saturday, parked out car, and did not have to drive again for the entire week. Grocery stores, restaurants, the beach, ice cream, pizza, entertainment, art galleries, whale watches, and dine buggy tours are all within walking distance. We travel all over the country and stay at many different HomeAway locations... this one is a real treat. My appreciation to the owner for making our week memorable.

fantastic time in provincetown

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the owners were responsive and very easy to talk to about the rental. The place itself is fantastic, it could not be better situated or appointed. I had a really nice week with my mother and partner, would happily revisit if given an opportunity.

We located on a section of private beach!
Car: not necessary

The property is located both on the beach and in the center of America's best street scene (Commercial Street), so the possibilities are endless. Choose from lounging waterside on your private 1,000 square foot deck (not shared with anyone) or meeting new friends as you relax on what guests call 'Provincetown's best front porch'.

With Spiritus Pizza (the social center of town) 90 seconds east and The Provincetown General Store only 90 seconds west, you are truly close to every major attraction Provincetown has to offer. Whether you prefer relaxing privately or being close to the action, there is no better location.

Other Activities: whale watching, bike trails, kayaking, boating, sightseeing, gyms, museums, massage, dune tours, shopping, theater, nightlife
