Me, my wife and 3 year old daughter stayed here last week and were totally thrilled with the cottages. The description from the website is completely accurate, Elke really does have everything you could possibly want or need, right down to the children's books and puzzles. The cottages are secluded enough, but right off rte 6, which means its an easy drive to any part of the cape. There were numerous beaches and restaurants within 5-10 minutes of the cottages, and you could drive into Provincetown within 30 minutes. If you want to take a daytrip to Martha's Vineyard, the ferry from Woods Hole is less than an hour away. There's also the beautiful Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary only 5 minutes up the road, with beautiful wooded trails through marshes and woods.
About the cottages, they're very clean and neat, and you can tell Elke has put a lot of hard work into maintaining their condition. The cottages are also far enough apart that you won't hear your neighbors, and they're far enough back from the road that traffic noise was never a problem. Our cottage was very spacious, more than enough room for the 3 of us, and the kitchen really does have everything you could possibly need.
One other feature is that there's a wooded trail which leads to a 28 mile long bike path. I especially liked this for running in the morning as there were markers every half and full mile, and its a very scenic trail for running (or biking).
I would very highly recommend this place to my friends and family, and hope to spend a week here again next year.
