We loved this cute cottage. Jay and Edith supplied you with everything you needed. We enjoyed our week on the cape and look forward to returning. Nothing compares to waking up to the sound of the ocean. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!!! Sincerely, Diana, Bob, Marisa and Emily

“Fabulous vacation, perfect cottage!”

Reviewed 30 Jul 2015

We love Cape Cod and look forward to visiting each Summer. Last year and this year we rented this cottage/condo right on the beach and it is really lovely. Comfortable, well-equipped and the owners are a pleasure. It is perfect for 2 people though there are 2 bedrooms, so it will accommodate 4. The view of Provincetown, the lighthouse & tower is amazing. We love it here!!

Owner's reply: Thank you Jill! The cottage is our home away from home and we take great pride in it. It's a pleasure having renters like you guys to share it with. Jay

“Simply spectacular”

Reviewed 22 Oct 2014

My husband and I spent a long weekend in this delightful cottage on the bay in North Truro. The location was perfect for watching the sunset and spectacular blue water. If you prefer the sunrise it's just a short ride to Head of the Meadow beach on the Oceanside. The cottage was very clean and well stocked, including towels and bed sheets. This is a destination vacation that we plan to return to annually. Thanks Jay.

Owner's reply: Thank you Kris. It's our second home and we put a lot into it. Hope to see you next year. Jay

“Adorable cottage”

Reviewed 23 Jul 2013

Cottage is adorable and right on the water. We picked a very hot week to go to Cape Cod so having no AC was a bit uncomfortable, but all of the locals told us that it almost never gets that hot! We had quiet neighbors, no rain and pretty sunsets looking towards P-town. Cable TV and internet worked great when we felt like being connected to the world. The furniture could be a little more comfortable (my husband's a big guy) but if you like Futons, you won't even notice! Great time and very cute cottage - perfect for a couple!! Thanks!

“Amazing setting. Beautiful and the perfect escape!”

Reviewed 13 Jul 2012

We loved this place. Relaxing setting & perfect set-up for adults and kids. Waves & own private beach right there :-)! The deck & beach were our favorite. Sunsets were stunning ~ it was hard to leave.... Thank you, Jay, for a wonderful & memorable vacation!

Owner's reply: Thank you Mary. We're glad you enjoyed "The Love Shack". It's our home away from home.

“parfait pour decrocher de la routine”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2011

4 jours qui ont passés trop vite. Magnifique cottage face à la mer. Équipé et décoré parfaitement. Plage privée, Se laisser bercer au son des vagues chaque soir, petite breeze de vent pour se rafraîchir que demandez de plus? Couché de soleil à coupé le souffle. Un dépanneurs en face, un autobus qui fais la navette jusqu'à Provincetown aux 1/2 heures pour les boutiques, resto et soirées. Plusieurs plages à quelques km seulement. Adresse à retenir et revenir. Merci Jay

“a little bit of paradise on cape cod”

Reviewed 5 Jul 2010

This charming, compact and tastefully decorated cottage was just what we needed! It was perfect for two; might be tight for 4. The sound of the ocean, the sea breeze, the view, the sunsets: all magnificent! We will definitely be returning.

“Late summer tranquility”

Reviewed 28 Sep 2009

Great time. Easy to find and get to things to do yet a great place to come back to and unwind listening to the water and enjoying the sunsets and stars.

“Exceeded our expectations”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2009

I would rate this 4.5 out of 5 The cottage was immiculate, well decorated and comfortable. It is right on the Bay with a nice beachfront. The sunsets are georgous. We stayed in the off season so it was quiet. The only downfall I could see is that the beach is shared with guests of the condos across the street so that during prime time the beach might have more people. However, I doubt it would ever be really crowded. All we expected and more. Jude & Lee
