About Michael Richey
Minneapolis native and Boston resident prior to moving to Miami in 2014. Traveled to Provincetown since 1982 and have enjoyed its magic and beauty over the past 4 decades. A guest from Egypt once told me of all the places he had traveled throughout the world, that Provincetown was his favorite vacation destination. I had to let that sink in for a minute. It is truly a unique vacation destination and something for everyone. I hope you stay at my home while you are there. It is located in one of Provincetown's best locations. Directly adjacent to the jetty that connects the end of Commercial Street to the outermost point of Cape Cod. I look forward to hosting you at the Point Beyond. Make your Provincetown vacation a special time by staying at my home.
Michael Richey purchased this Condo in 2006
Why Michael Richey chose Provincetown
Comfortable property for 4-5 guests. 3 queen beds. Living room, kitchen, dining room and deck facing the bay is on the 2nd floor of the property which is magical. The bedrooms are on the first floor. The house is air conditioned to offer a comfortable living situation in case of hot or humid weather. Great location in a quiet part of Provincetown and a short 10-15 minute walk to the center of town.
What makes this Condo unique
Beach directly across the street from the property. 10-15 minute walk to the center of town from the property. The walk is one of the most enjoyable parts of the day, as you walk by some of the most beautiful gardens of private homes along the way and catch a glimpse of the water and Provincetown Bay along the way.

Fabulous Place for a P-town Vacation
This condo is awesome. The upstairs living area is open and airy with wonderful, comfortable furniture and a slider to the deck that looks out to Commercial street and the bay beach. Both the kitchen and living rooms are well appointed with everything you could possibly need. The two bedrooms downstairs are comfortable, although one is on the street and therefore could be a little louder. However, the condo is way down on the far west end and there really isn't much foot traffic at night so it is not much of an issue. The loft, above the kitchen, essentially adds a 3rd bedroom option. It is also a fun place to nap or read a book. The outdoor shower is a real plus. It is spacious and fully enclosed, and essentially makes it so there are two functioning showers. It also keeps the sand and salt from the beach from being dragged into the house! This condo is in a great location, with the private Delft Haven bay beach across the street which you have access to. This beach is clearly the nicest Bay Beach in all of P-town. There is also access to the Provincetown Inn outdoor pool, and it is much fun to go back and forth between the Bay and the pool. The condo comes with beach chairs and beach towels for the beach. It also comes with two parking places - totally rare in P-town! Although we didn't have a car - you don't need one! We rented bikes for the week and either biked or walked everywhere. Herring Cove Beach is only a 5-minute bike ride away. Race Point Beach allows for a nice bike ride on the trails. The only disappointment we had was we ran out of propane during our first bbq. However, Michael the owner was very accomodating and offered to pay for the cost of refilling the propane, including the costs of a taxi to and from the store. We just used it, instead, as an excuse to eat out more often! Overall, we find the owner Michael to be very accomdating to do business with and would totally rent this place for our next visit!
The perfect fall getaway
I'd been to Ptown before in the summer, but with work I couldn't get away. I didn't want to wait until this year, so I reached out to Michael (The Point Beyond's owner) about coming for a week in early fall. Not only did he work with me on timing, he recommended restaurants, told me excursions I should go on, and followed up in the middle of my stay to see how I was enjoying my time. He really went above and beyond. As for the house, it is amazing! The layout is so convenient for vacation- 2 bedrooms downstairs with the MOST comfortable beds I've slept on. The aesthetics of the room are clean and crisp, and further enhanced by the abundant natural light. I honestly spent a lot of time in the upstairs living room, where the couch is so inviting that sometimes it feels impossible to leave. I cooked most meals in the kitchen, and used the upstairs back balcony to go back and forth to the grill on the back patio. There is also a balcony in the front of the house that looks on to Commercial Street; so good for people watching! Plus you can see the beach from the balcony (it's right across the street from a private beach), so I knew when it was low v. high tide! All in all, I had the BEST time during this autumn visit to Provincetown. In fact, I've already booked a week for summer 2019 and a weekend in October 2019. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Lovely apartment in Ptown
This is an extremely well kept house in the West End of Provincetown. The walk to the town is 20 minutes, but is a delightful stroll. The house has all the amenities you could want and is very close to a small and charming beach. And for history buffs the site of the Pilgrim landing is just 100 yards down the road.
So happy to hear you enjoyed the house and it’s location. It’s a magical place and so happy to share it with others. Come back again!
Nice house with a great deck
The house has an unusual layout with the bedrooms downstairs and the main living area upstairs but this works out nicely because the living room, which is very large and airy, opens onto a deck that overlooks the street. It's a great place to hang out and watch people walk by since you're above the street and set back a little. There is also a patio at ground level in back, with stairs leading down from the kitchen, that has a very nice gas grill (appeared to be new) and an outdoor shower inside a private enclosure. There is a sleeping loft over the kitchen area. There is a dishwasher and washer/dryer, flat screen TV in the living room and both bedrooms, AC in both bedrooms, good wifi, and parking for 1 or 2 cars. The furniture was stylish and in good condition. There is an entrance to the harbor side beach practically across the street and you can see the harbor from the deck. Herring Cove beach is also walkable because the house is all the way at the west end of Commercial Street. The only downside to this house is the location if you are going to be walking frequently to the town center. It's about a 20 minute walk, longer if you're a slow walker. However, it's only 5 minutes by bike or cab. It's also a long way to any type of grocery or convenience store, although if you have a car this isn't a problem because you can easily get to and from the main supermarket without having to go through the town center (don't try and drive down Commercial Street in the town center in the summer if you don't have to!). Aside from that, everybody in our group loved this house. It's my favorite house that I've stayed at in Ptown and I plan to book it again if it's available, next time I go up there.
Wonderful introduction to P-town
This was the perfect spot for our first visit to Provincetown and we highly recommend it. The beautiful, relatively quiet location is within walking distance of downtown, and there is a nice street and water view from the balcony. The accomodations are lovely and comfortable with lots of interesting art on the walls. Michael is a great host, always available for questions and very accomodating. We loved the house and wonderful Provincetown (especially the Pilgrim Tower and the Art Museum), and are hoping to return soon. (Hint: be sure to see the half-scale model of the schooner Rose Dorothea upstairs at the public library.)
Happy you enjoyed the place and your time in Provincetown.
This will be our sixth summer in P-Town and our sixth year staying at Michael’s property, as it is the best place in town! It is in the perfect location on Commercial Street down in the west end of town. The house is across the street from the Cape, and just a “30” minute hike to Herring Cove. With the bedrooms down below and the living / kitchen area up above it makes for great viewing of the water, and people watching off Commercial Street. It’s an easy walk into town yet far enough away from center of everything so you don’t hear all of the noise, and it’s a quick PediCab ride home.
The place is clean, the bedrooms are spacious, and the kitchen has everything you need. The outdoor shower comes in handy when coming back from the beach, and the backyard BBQ grill is perfect for that summer cookout with friends.
I highly recommend this property, and look forward to many more summers in P-Town. Thanks Michael for all of the memories!
