“Just wonderful! Kids loved it. We loved it. Grandmother loved it!”
Reviewed February 18, 2013 for a stay in June 2012

people found this review helpful

We stayed in one of the duplex cottages and couldn't believe our luck the whole two weeks we were there --- and feel the same way now, months later. That's why we are going back on 2013 and for as many years as we can. We were worried before arriving that it might be too small for our family --- 2 kids under 6, 2 parents and a grandmother --- but it was just fine space wise. Very comfortable and easy. We loved walking in the front door and seeing nothing but water out the back sliding glass doors. Even more, we loved all the different ways to be at the house - coffee on the porch while the kids played safely on the private sand front yard, or, more coffee on the porch while the kids ventured down the short stairs to the beach or to play at the water's edge. Or the whole family setting up camp down by the water, with the house only a seconds run away if anyone needed a break. Or helping the kids catch crabs in the early morning or afternoon. Or swimming. Or cooking hotdogs over a fire built on the sand, again, seconds away from our back door. With the pretty well-stocked store a block away, we could have never gotten in the car for two weeks and been perfectly happy. But, with Provincetown such a short drive away (one of the main reasons we came) and the Audubon center or Brewster's Museum of Natural History making for a great half-day adventure, or national seashores five minutes away, we ended up enjoying a mix of spending whole days at the cottage and exploring. Places we liked -- all very close by: Mac's Shack in Wellfleet outside for dinner, Mac's Market in Truro for fresh seafood to cook at home and the small gourmet food market near it, PJ's on Route 6 in Wellfleet for best (and cheapest) lobster rolls, grilled cheese and mac & cheese for kids, Moby Dick's for fun dinner, maybe not the best food ever but still a good tradition, Provincetown Art Museum (great for kids too - small), the tidal flats down the road, Province Lands Visitor Center (national seashore). If you feel the need to leave the bayside beach that is your front yard, and you may not, there's more than enough to do in the area. We had everything we needed inside and the cottage was exceptionally clean. Oh, and Joanne is great. You'll love her.

“Great weekend get-a-way”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Had a lovely weekend at the Cape. It was only in the upper 60's but we found it just lovely to sit right outside the door on the sand and soak in some sun. I even got a sunburn! The best part was being right on the beach - no walking with coolers and chairs. The rental was clean and well appointed with everything needed (nice towels, kitchen had everything, comfy bed and sheets). Would definitely stay here again.

“Clean, well-stocked, beachside cottage - incredible sunsets:)”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We really enjoyed our stay in cottage #5. This was our first family vacation and we had our two year old daughter with us. The location of the cottage, for us, was great. We liked Provincetown the best of all of the Cape Cod towns that we visited, and you have the option of mass transit if you don't want to drive into P-town from the cottage. The cottage was stocked with various things that you might need at the beach, such as sand chairs, lounge chairs, sand toys and water noodles, and even small child-size outdoor chairs. It had a Keurig coffee maker, and all of the kitchen bare necessities that you might need. The beds are pretty comfortable, and it had a good shower (this is always important!!). The owner, Joanne, is very nice, responsive, and honest. The other tenants of the adjacent cottages were respectful (in fact, this is a clause in the contract, which we appreciated very much).

Good morning, Barbara, Thank you for the detailed review, much appreciated. Thank you also for noting the items I put in Our family stays at the cottage so I put items in we like to use as well. As far as the shower, we don't have very good pressure so had to be creative with a shower head. Have a great winter. ~Joanne

“Absolutely fabulous !!!”
Reviewed June 4, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

The cottage was charming, spotless & very well-equipped. Everything was even better than shown on the internet. Hearing the sounds of the surf when you wake up in the morning is priceless. Provincetown is right down the street & I fully intended to spend a little time strolling around the quaint village, but I couldn't drag myself away from the cottage.I spent all my time taking walks on the beach & lounging on the covered porch just watching the tides come & go. I loved it & can't wait to go back.

We loved having you visit! Really glad you enjoyed yourself, Ronna. It's amazing what a relaxing beach it is. I'm with you, nothing like sitting on the porch with that first cup of coffee or watching the sunset. Hope to "see" you again. Have a great summer and thank you!
