It's time once again for Curbed Comparisons, where we break down what you can get at the same price point, style or size in five different Cape and Islands neighborhoods. This week, summer rentals for $1,200/week.
? We begin in Provincetown with a historic wharf cottages on Poor Richard's Landing. Located in the East End, "but just far enough east for peace and quiet," the cottages sleep up to four. Rates start at $1,200 per week and the waterfront property will "consider" pets, so best to have Fido's references ready.
? Ferrying over to Martha's Vineyard, we find a 2BR, 1BA in Oak Bluffs. The cottage accommodates up to four and features a front porch, living room, dining room, and eat-in-kitchen. Public transportation stops in front of the property and it's a quick walk or bike ride to Circuit Ave. and the beach.
? Back on the Cape, here's a 2BR, 1BA cottage in Orleans. Located less than half a mile to Nauset Beach and close to East Orleans Village, the property sleeps up to four and features an an outdoor shower, a deck, gas grill, and air conditioning.
? Over on Nantucket we find a 2BR, 1BA in Madaket. The three-level townhouse can sleep up to six and features an outside shower, multiple decks and a laundry room. The property is close to the beach and rents for $1,200 per week through the first week of summer, but jumps to $1,500 the following week.
? Back on Martha's Vineyard, we find an open floor plan cottage (a.k.a. studio/efficiency) in Vineyard Haven. The property is a five-minute walk from the Steamship Authority (a.k.a. the ferry) and is close to the Vineyard Playhouse, the library, movie theater, public tennis courts, town beach, public transit, and the village of Vineyard Haven (a.k.a. walkability). "The cottage is perfect for a couple or a couple with an infant," so no shares.
