It’s true what they say: The view is better from up top. Take this Provincetown home, for example. From its vantage point atop Telegraph Hill, overlooking the very tip of Cape Cod on one side and Cape Cod Bay and beyond toward the gorgeous Boston skyline on the other, this property enjoys panoramic ocean views. With Provincetown Harbor and its famed beaches below, what more could you want from a Cape Cod getaway?
“This home is perfectly situated to be high above all the hustle and bustle of Provincetown while still being able to see every single detail of the historic area,” says Luke Chapman, owner of Del Mar Vacations. “It’s the perfect property for social distancing,” he expands, referring to actions taken in recent months to slow the spread of global coronavirus. But, when the world is no longer banding together to stay home in an effort to avoid overwhelming the healthcare system (especially on the small spit of land that is Cape Cod), and instead banding together to appreciate small, treasured moments like a day at the beach in Provincetown, this property becomes the ideal rental home for the very same reason that Chapman makes his observation: it is private and serene while still being close to all the action.
Inside, the home boasts a state-of-the-art kitchen, perfect for preparing a meal or a morning cup of coffee to enjoy on the wrap-around porch as the sun sends glittering rays over the tip of Provincetown and Long Point Light in the distance. The ambiance is all about relaxation, with a spacious master bedroom and master bath on the second floor, complete with a soaking tub. Multiple guest rooms, guest baths and a convenient washer and dryer make this the perfect location to gather with family and friends. From drying off after a long beach day on one of three outdoor decks to curling up by the fireplace with a good book and maybe a frosty drink, this space leaves nothing to be desired. And, what vacation retreat would be complete without a hot tub?
“The multi-levels of this home give it a lot of depth. There are three decks, and the whole space flows really well between the indoor and outdoor areas which all connect,” explains Chapman, noting the expansive back deck and large lawn space. He even points out a private dog run that means the family pet doesn’t have to miss out on the Cape Cod vacation! “Add to that the incredible architecture that allows for a water view that can be seen from all sides of the home—just about 270 degrees of stunning scenery—and this home is definitely a touch above the rest,” expands Chapman.
As a full service property management company that also specializes in guest services, Del Mar Vacations is uniquely positioned to provide the best possible experience at the best possible locations. Like this Provincetown home, all of Del Mar’s properties are handpicked to be the finest representations of the incredible vacation experience that Cape Cod is famous for. For homeowners, Del Mar practically guarantees rental income while also taking care of a client’s beloved space. From cleaning, lawn care, and waste removal, to reservation management and hands-on customer service, Del Mar simplifies the rental process for both sides of the agreement, setting the standard on Cape Cod for superb vacation experiences. “Del Mar Vacations provides hotel quality hospitality and property management services,” explains Chapman. “We are here to make sure guests have a great vacation, and homeowners don’t have to lift a finger.”
“With this home, the owners are really great partners for Del Mar,” continues Chapman. “They are also longtime business owners and amazing supporters of the local Provincetown community. And, of course, their property is just exceptional. Those things are exactly the types of qualities that we look for when building meaningful relationships with our clients.” Del Mar’s award-winning photography and dedicated marketing strategies certainly do the home justice as well, and serve to highlight Chapman’s favorite element: the natural lighting.
“There are windows and skylights everywhere in this home,” enthuses Chapman. “It’s stunning, and the orientation is such that there are no neighboring homes visible from any of the major living spaces, so it feels very private and peaceful.”
Eye-catching original artwork hangs on the walls throughout the home, tying each of the rooms together with a sophisticated, nautical flare. Clean white countertops, soft wall colors that seem to switch between light gray and calming, sea foam blue in the light, and vibrant pops of color like canary yellow lounge chairs give the home a personality all its own. It’s coastal, laid-back and fun, while still, in many ways, feeling chic and refined, much like the famed town it overlooks. Like Provincetown, this home is an escape all its own—one where guests are sure to feel special, relaxed, and above all, welcome.
“We are in the business of providing experiences,” says Chapman. “We don’t want to give guests simply an empty vestibule, and this home, with its many unique and expansive views, its striking architectural detailing, the original art, and inspired amenities, is an experience unto itself.”
