Property of the Week


One of my most vivid childhood memories is the summer vacation we spent on spent on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Those fond memories of the sun and beach and the lovely cottage we stayed in inspired this week’s choice for Property of the Week. Take a look at this lovely Provincetown cottage: 4194621



What attracted me to this property:

This cottage had me at the wrap around porch. I am in love with outdoor living space and this cottage has just the right amount.  There is also an outdoor shower which is ideal for the beach.


The location is pretty fantastic too! This beachfront property with easy access to town and the beach is absolutely perfect.



What I love about this listing:

The photos are inviting because they are staged appropriately and well lit. 


The owner’s response rate is great and the reviews that they have are lovely.


I also appreciate that the rates are straightforward and simple to understand.  There is no confusion around what I’ll be paying for my stay.




What could be improved:

The description needs to be more detailed. It left me with these questions:

  • Which body of water does the cottage face?
  • When was it built?
  • What makes the property unique?
  • What is there to do in the area?
  • Why did the owner choose this location to build?


There are not enough photos! Every listing should have the full 24 photos and show every aspect of the house from multiple angles.


The calendar needs to be updated, it hasn’t been updated since September 2016. If a traveler searched with specific dates in mind, which most do, this home currently wouldn’t show up in search.


The owner needs to respond to the nice reviews of their property. Responding to reviews shows future travelers that the owner is involved and cares. The owner also needs to try to get more reviews. Two reviews aren’t enough to give a true picture of the property.


This looks like a lovely cottage and I really want to go stay!
