About Paula Sociedade, Ph.D.
I was born on the island of Sao Miguel, Azores, one of the places where heaven meets earth. The unspoiled beautiful nature and the gracious hospitality of the Azorean people are a part of my heritage. We immigrated to the Ironbound section of Newark, New Jersey when I was four years old. The Ironbound is populated with people from various European countries thus facilitating our acculturation to western culture and yet maintaining our Azorean roots. I learned many valuable teachings in our bi-cultural home: love of family, the value of consistent hard work, how to make a house into a loving home, but the two messages that resonate deep are: do what you say and do it whole-heartedly; and honor your heritage and family surname. I completed my PhD in 1995 in counseling psychology and became a licensed psychologist in 1996. My love for and commitment to my heritage is why I brought my clinical skills back home to the Ironbound. My immediate reaction when I first encountered Cape Cod in 1990 was: 'I have arrived.' I have traveled to many beautiful places but what I felt when I stumbled upon Truro was a connection between mind, body and soul. Whether walking, biking or driving through Truro, I knew someday I would own a home on the Outer Cape. Ten years (2000) later I bought my first home in North Truro. As fate would have it, this home was sold in 2009 during a tumultuous time of my life. In 2011 on a beautiful fall day I purchased my piece of heaven on earth: Villa Sociedade. Much like the Azores, the unspoiled beautiful nature of the Villa is where heaven meets earth. The passage of my Azorean roots with Villa Sociedade was nothing short of a divine intervention. The first home in North Truro was my 'holding ground' until I was ready to receive the gift intended for me: Villa Sociedade: A place for integration of heritage and passion for creative hosting of traveling families who want to create memories with each other on the Cape.
Paula Sociedade, Ph.D. purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Paula Sociedade, Ph.D. chose Truro
It is very difficult to find a home on Cape Cod which can accommodate a large group, let alone a property that has all of the amenities Villa Sociedade offers: in ground salt pool, tennis court, basket ball, ping pong, outdoor shower, hammock, air conditioned, monogrammed bed sheets, herb garden, just to mention a few of the many amenities you can expect during your stay at no extra cost.The Villa is also registered with the town of Truro so you can enjoy the benefit of paying only a small fee for your car decal giving you access to all Truro beaches. Guests describe it best: "The only problem with the villa is it is so relaxing and beautiful, that it was hard to venture out and explore the Cape." "This is the by far the best rental home..." "No expense was cut...will not disappoint..." "This is the fun house!" "Heavenly..." "Pristine and dreamy..." As repeatedly stated in our 5 star reviews: THIS PROPERTY IS LIKE NO OTHER!
What makes this Villa unique
This is the ideal vacation spot for the entire family to experience an authentic Cape Cod adventure. As your host I provide you with the convenience of dealing directly with me...in part as your concierge, your friend, and your insider expert of the Cape. I want there to be inherent trust between me as your host and you as my guest. Hospitality and attention to detail is what you will encounter. I do not "just rent to a renter" rather I host my guest because I want you to feel at home on the Cape. If you have any questions feel free to ask me. Paula Sociedade, Owner

Fantastic Truro Stay
We have stayed in Cape Cod for years at various places, but Villa Sociedade was absolutely one of the best . We love the Truro area due to its lack of crowds and beautiful beaches. One of my favorite beaches ,Longnook, was literally a few minutes away. Our favorite breakfast/coffee/pastry/ice cream place,Savory and Sweet Escape was also just down the road. My pregnant daughter in law was happy! The proximity to Provincetown is also a plus. We were looking for a place we could stay with our Golden Retievers and this place looked fantastic- it was!
The grounds are stunning and peaceful at the same time and give you a wonderful sense of retreat . The outdoor pool is beautiful and the patio is spacious. We had great weather for June and were able to be in the pool everyday. I believe it was heated as the temperature was always good.The deck on the back of the house is the best spot to catch the breeze. Due to its location on a hilltop, you almost always have a nice air and you can see the ocean through the gap in the bluffs across the way.
The house itself is open and beautifully decorated. The kitchen was well appointed and we ate in almost every night. The beds were comfortable and bright.- the entire back of the house facing the ocean in the distance was a wall of sliding glass doors, which were great to let in the breezes at night.
As a plus , there is a large tennis court on the grounds - we didn't play tennis but it was great for the dogs to roam around in off lead.
The owner, Paula, was great and responded quickly to all communications. We had to change our dates and she was gracious and accommodating.
Overall , one of our best stays on the Cape. I will definitely stay here again!
What a beautiful review! Thank you for the time it took to write it...I so appreciate it. Also, thank you for taking good care of this special oasis. You are welcomed guests of Villa Sociedade.
A family tradition
We have stayed at Villa Sociedade 4 summers in a row (and are booked for our 5th)! The home is kept immaculately, and there are always updates and repairs, but what we love is that every summer, we return to what we expect and appreciate. Gorgeous views, fully stocked home (with so many extra little touches), great pool, and convenient location. Being at Villa Sociedade is our favorite week of the year!
Thank you for such a wonderful review and for being great guests!
This home is simply lovely. An expansive deck with an everchanging ocean view, a great pool and tennis court, and beautiful surroundings. The house has comfortable, pretty furnishings and is very well-equipped for everything you could possibly want in a summer rental. We loved it!! Also, Paula is a gracious and responsive host.
Thank you so much for your review. I would welcome the opportunity to host your next stay!
This is the second year we spent our vacation at the main house of the Villa Sociedade. My family enjoys having close access to the beach, but with the availability of a luxurious pool area . The interior of the home is comfortable, the landscaping is gorgeous and the view is amazing. Staying here is like being at your own private resort with all of the amenities!!
Thank you for such a great review. We hope to have you back on your next visit to Cape Cod.
Villa Sociedade is ideally located close to Provincetown, Wellfleet, ocean and bay beaches. Truro Vineyard, local markets, biking and walking trails.
