Oceanfront penthouse right on the beach & Commercial St - newly renovated!

Get spoiled with unprecedented beach access at this gorgeous Cape Cod vacation rental. Modern furnishings meet homey comforts at this third-story unit with a spacious deck overlooking the ocean and three inviting bedrooms with their own TVs for rest and relaxation.

This newly renovated waterfront penthouse on bustling Commercial Street is near the area attractions for which one heads to Provincetown. It's just half a mile from the Wydah Pirate Shipwreck Museum and the Pilgrim Monument. And the beach is mere seconds away.

Head up three flights and you're immediately wrapped in comfort and luxury. Gorgeous hardwood floors greet you as you step into the living room. A bright blue rug envelopes the floor as a gray sectional couch dominates the space. There's a matching gray armchair and ottoman for more seating, and you can look out onto the water via the large windows or watch your favorite show on the Blu-ray- and cable-ready flatscreen TV.

Head through the glass doors to the expansive 400-square-foot deck. Admire the famous Provincetown sunsets from one of the new lounge chairs or savor an al fresco dinner under the stars.

Speaking of dinner, you'll be able to whip up a chef-worthy one in the open and airy white kitchen. There's a four-seat high-top table in the eat-in kitchen for morning noshes but you'll also find a six-seat dining room set, complete with two wooden benches and two leather-backed chairs, for more formal repasts. An electric range, fridge, and a dishwasher round out the amenities.

This home boasts three comfortable bedrooms, each with their own flatscreen TV, for up to six guests. This is the perfect arrangement for three couples traveling together! One bedroom has a queen bed, red armchairs, a built-in dresser unit, and a sliding door for privacy. Two additional bedrooms feature queen beds (one of which is a murphy bed), cozy coverlets, and windows overlooking the bustling street.

Read your favorite novel on a comfortable window seat opposite one of the bedrooms. Two modern bathrooms with standalone showers round out the guest quarters.

Revel in the free WiFi, central air conditioning, and private washer and dryer. You can walk anywhere - there's no need for a car - but there is a parking spot reserved for this unit two blocks away. And of course, the beach is within seconds of your front door.

Like other towns on the Cape, Provincetown enjoys an influx of tourists come summer. How it differs is its thoroughly welcoming vibe to the LGBT community. You can head to MacMillan Wharf and take a harbor cruise or a whale-watching schooner. Walk up and down Commercial Street to get your shopping, dining, and people watching fix. The nightlife scene is probably the most energetic on the entire Cape.

Airy, inviting, and eminently charming, this Provincetown vacation rental is the perfect spot for a ocean-loving getaway on Cape Cod.

Nancy S. Feb 2019
We loved the view and the apartment. Very clean and well maintained. We will definitely rent another off season weekend!
Cathy C. Dec 2018
This is a wonderfully pleasant retreat with a birds-eye view of Provincetown harbor and Long Point. Located in the heart of town, it is steps away from food and fun.
James S. Jul 2018
right in the middle of everything. can stop at home for 30" between everything. clean, large, fully equipped. fantastic views all around. have stayed there 5x. have watched the details brought to perfect over the years.
Sarah O. Apr 2018
Stunning views, great location.
Lina O. Apr 2018
The propoerty was on the water with a great view. Inside was nice, clean and had what we needed for our stay. Do keep in mind that you are on the 3rd floor and will have to climb 3 stories of stairs. Only an issue when packing in and out.

The surrounding town was fun to explore with friendly locals. We stayed in the off season so much was closed for the season but there was plenty still open for us to enjoy.

Now, that being said, whne we checked in to the property there was a strong smell of paint fumes from recent painting. It was early April and the temps were still in the 30s and 40s with rain and some snow. We had to open all the windows to try and air out the unit to make it habitable.
Our party consisted of 4 adults, one 14 year old and an 18 month. 2 adults ended up having strong headaches from the fumes, 1 additional adult became very nasues and ill felling. This lead to having to sleep with the windows open both nights (low 30s) we were at the property. The main concern for the 18 month old.

With the exception of the paint fumes, the stay was pleasant, the view was beautiful and the town was great. Would love to see P-Town during the season to see what it would be like in full swing.
Manager response:
We sincerely apologize for the paint fumes and wish this guest had contacted us regarding the matter so we could have tried to work something out. Due to the busy calendar for this rental the owner had to squeeze in painting when he could, and we are very sorry to see it had such an affect on this guest. This will not be problem going forward as the fumes have all aired out and the painting is completed.

This is a spectacular spot for a winter vacation. Our party of 6 delighted in the excellent accommodations, with a stellar third-floor view directly overlooking Provincetown harbor and Long Point. Located in the commercial district in the West End of town, we were close to restaurants, shops, and the grocery store. What a find! This may be the best lodging in Provincetown.

Great location and great apartment - replace 1 window and you are rocking.
Christhard W. Oct 2017
If you want to be in the middle of everything, you should consider this place. This is the strength of this property. It is well equipped, TV and disc player in every room. Good washing and drying machine.
Don't be surprised to hear early the garbage collection in the morning or to smell the many restaurants preparing their food. If you stay out late you will most likely not notice.

This rental is right in the heart of Ptown.
Todd B. Jul 2017

Kimberly S. Apr 2017
Perfect getaway. Well maintained, fantastic deck & great location. Would stay here again.
Claudio M T. Feb 2017
This is a must stay location in Provincetown! It's in the center of it all - all shops, restaurants, entertainment within a few blocks! Convenient. The home is modern, comfortable and one of the best views in Ptown! You can see it all from the comfort of indoor window seats or just enjoy a beautiful sunrise from the awesome deck!

Each bedroom has it's own TV. All beds are very comfortable.

We will be booking this spot again and again and again!
Thierry P. Dec 2016
We had an excellent time with our (adult) children in this place. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it.
David G. Dec 2016
The place is amazing. Big with an amazing view. The amenities were super. I wish the bedroom door closed and the front door locked but, overall, I was pleased with this property
Luann M. Nov 2016
We lived this condo: the view, beds, furnishings, everything. A perfect place for 2 couples to enjoy Ptown and Cape Cod!
Jennifer B. Nov 2016
Clean, quiet and cozy. Great view, too!
Bob D. Nov 2016
Family of 4 stayed 2 night and had great time. Very close to shops and beach. Bay is in back yard. Owner was great to deal with.
Michelle B. Sep 2016
Sunrise and sunset on this balcony are breathtaking. The house is updated and very clean! Beds are comfortable and great area to cook/serve meals. We had a great time and look forward to returning
Jeffrey J. Sep 2016
Updated condo with a location that cannot be beat. This was our second time staying here and we were pleased again. Everything on Commercial Street is within walking distance. And the beaches are a short car or bike ride away. Furniture and beds are comfortable. Kitchen is well stocked. Very convenient to have a dishwasher and washer/dryer. Central air was in good working order and much appreciated! You will not be disappointed with the central location and harbor views!
Christopher W. Aug 2016
A group of five (2 couples and a single) stayed here in July/August 2016. The location cannot be beat – you are literally in the center of everything! Watch the crowds linger at Spiritus late at night from the bedroom window, or sit on the deck overlooking the harbor. Close the windows and you can't hear a sound from Commercial Street, just two stories down. We can't wait to come back!
Alan S. Jul 2016
Has everything you could want in a rental!
Audrey K. May 2016
Definitely going to reserve this place next year, location is key and nothing can beat that deck view.
STEPHANIE B. Apr 2016
Excellent location and property!
Peter L. Nov 2015
Great location, great views in all directions, spacious condo.
Gerald S. Oct 2015
What a fantastic rental! Great location, all the amenities needed, great view of the water. Virtually perfect spot.
Monica H. Sep 2015
We are a large family and wanted to be together on our trip, so opted for a condo. This condo is absolutely stunning. The pictures do not do justice to the stunning patio, from which you can enjoy breathtaking sunrises and sunsets and the harbor. The interior has been lovingly and tastefully renovated, with lovely high end pieces. Small luxuries like cable TVs in every bedroom, central air, a spacious kitchen, and sleep number beds were cherry after cherry after cherry on top. Add to that the central Commercial st location and parking a 3 minute walk away for the ultimate conveniences. We will definitely be booking on our next trip to Ptown. Whatever reservations you may have, toss then out the window and just book this gem.
