We had to attend a wedding in Provincetown on a Saturday during a very busy weekend in July -- almost all of the hotels and B&Bs were booked up in that area, and some were even requiring a 5 night minimum! Just when we thought we'd have to spend $350/night or stay somewhere that would be a 30+ min drive from the wedding location, we were delighted to find this rental unit on TripAdvisor.
It was everything we needed -- there was a spacious room with A/C, a TV, a full kitchen, clean bathroom and a cute little deck off the back. As soon as we got there we turned on the radio in the room, cracked open a couple beers and sat outside on the deck for happy hour and a game of cards -- it was instant relaxation and one of the best moments of the whole weekend. It feels like a true relaxing getaway, and almost a break from time/reality, giving you a step back in time. While we enjoyed happy hour and the sun, a big group played croquet on the large lawn area behind all of the units and seemed to have a great time.
The kitchen had everything we needed -- from a wine opener to a lobster pot if we wanted to cook up some fresh catch in the room. And at night, you could leave the sliding doors open and actually hear the ocean. We said several times during that trip that we'd love to bring friends or family back for a long weekend next year! Great place to return to, to see everything the upper cape has to offer, at a reasonable price (and with so many more amenities than your regular old hotel room!).
Only thing I'd add is that you should know that the key pickup has to happen by a certain time -- I think it was 6 or 7pm. So it's not like a hotel where you can check in at any time. If you leave work on a Friday to drive up there, you have to make sure to leave ample time to get there before the main office closes! Check-in only took a second however and the woman working the desk in the office was sweet and friendly.
