My partner and I nevertheless are townies have discovered Carpe Diem and in particular their spa (Namaste) in March 2014 thanks to a gift certificate. Since that moment we have gone to their spa and had massages every week. The spa is intimate and has a very relaxing zen atmosphere. A place to relax, read and enjoy of the Turkish... More

This was our second stay at Carpe Diem and everything was just as we remembered, perfect in every detail. The property is beautiful, the rooms comfy with all the amenities you would expect from a first-class establishment. But what truly sets them apart is the staff. I could go on and on, but the fact we have already book again... More

Everything was as close to perfection as possible: the location, the weather, the breakfasts, the accommodations, the garden, and the warmth of the hosts. And, great beaches are not too far. We had a wonderful time thanks to our hosts, and we have every intention of returning.

There is a room for every taste, the rooms are carefully described on the website... More

The best place to stay in P'Town. It's a vacation in itself. You don't even need to leave the guesthouse to enjoy your entire stay. From the great staff, the amazing spa, awesome breakfasts or just the quiet peace from the courtyard, our stay couldn't have been more perfect. Rainer, Jurgen and Hans as well as the entire staff made... More

Spent a very special weekend here with my family. We were made to feel special from the first moment. My daughter in law and I both had a massage which was amazing. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the service was superb. Would visit again in a heart beat.
