About the property


Villa Sociedade is one of the few properties on Cape Cod offering two amazing homes (main house: property # 692098 & guest house: property # 562848). It is the perfect large group solution for extended family, friends, and Fido to vacation together. The layout of the property is ideal for families to come together and vacation in a rental home where lifetime memorable experiences are made.

Each house can be rented separately or together. Both homes are private from each other. They are spacious enough to enjoy each other's company and yet have your own privacy. European design elements and personal touches provide subtle luxury, warmth and inviting charm throughout the homes. Majestical grounds.

The Villa is nestled on one of the highest points of Truro hills. Three beautifully landscaped acres on it's own private road makes it a tranquil and picturesque setting with spectacular views of Truro. The beautiful grounds will awaken all of your senses.


Upon entering the main house, the views are breathtaking. You will be taken by the private octagon inground pool and the water view.

There are expansive decks on three sides of this 2+bedroom, 2.5 bath, contemporary, architect designed home with air conditioning. There is an open floor plan which allows for quiet relaxation or wonderful entertaining.

The main level consists of: living, dining, a fully-applianced galley kitchen, and two private bedrooms. The master suite has a king size bed, jacuzzi for two, a separate shower, double sinks and a loo. The guest bedroom also has a king size bed with a full bathroom/shower. Floor to ceiling sliders, fireplace, and wood burning stoves are abundant on this level.

A staircase leads to the lower level which consists of: a game room with a wet bar, pinball machine, board games, a quiet area with a sofa/queen size sleeper, a separate half bathroom, and a laundry room. Floor to ceiling sliders lead to beautiful outdoor living with in ground salt pool, private and very big outdoor shower, tennis court with basket ball hoop, ping pong table, tree swing, hammock, pond, and gazebo.

In an ongoing effort to boast our 5 star rating for providing a well-appointed and pristine home, we have installed touchless flush toilet systems.

Wellfleet and Provincetown are about a 10-15 minute drive and it is perhaps a mile or so to either Corn Hill Beach on the bay side or Long Nook Beach on the ocean side. Nearby walking and biking trails through the National Sea Shore.

Pet friendly. No smoking allowed.

About Paula Sociedade, Ph.D.

I was born on the island of Sao Miguel, Azores, one of the places where heaven meets earth. The unspoiled beautiful nature and the gracious hospitality of the Azorean people are a part of my heritage.

We immigrated to the Ironbound section of Newark, New

Jersey when I was four years old. The Ironbound is populated with people from various European countries thus facilitating our acculturation to western culture and yet maintaining our Azorean roots.

I learned many valuable teachings in our bi-cultural home: love of family, the value of consistent hard work, how to make a house into a loving home, but the two messages that resonate deep are: do what you say and do it whole-heartedly; and honor your heritage and family surname.

I completed my doctrate in 1995 in counseling psychology and became a licensed psychologist in 1996. My love for and commitment to my heritage is why I brought my clinical skills back home to the Ironbound.

My immediate reaction when I first encountered Cape Cod in 1990 was: 'I have arrived.' I have traveled to many beautiful places but what I felt when I stumbled upon Truro was a connection between mind, body and soul. Whether walking, biking or driving through Truro, I knew someday I would own a home on the Outer Cape.

Ten years (2000) later I bought my first home in North Truro. As fate would have it, this home was sold in 2009 during a tumultuous time of my life.

In 2011 on a beautiful fall day I purchased my piece of heaven on earth: Villa Sociedade. Much like the Azores, the unspoiled beautiful nature of the Villa is where heaven meets earth.

The passage of my Azorean roots with Villa Sociedade was nothing short of a divine occurence. The first home in North Truro was my 'holding ground' until I was ready to receive the gift intended for me:

Villa Sociedade: A place for integration of heritage and passion for creative hosting of traveling families who want to create memories with each other on the Cape.

Paula Sociedade, Ph.D. purchased this villa in 2010

Why Paula Sociedade, Ph.D. chose Cape Cod

It is very difficult to find a home on Cape Cod which can accommodate a large group, let alone a property that has all of the amenities Villa Sociedade offers: in ground salt pool, tennis court, basket ball, ping pong, pinball machine, outdoor shower, hammock, air conditioned, monogrammed bed sheets, vegetable garden, just to mention a few of the many amenities you can expect during your stay at no extra cost.The Villa is also registered with the town of Truro so you can enjoy the benefit of paying only a small fee for your car decal giving you access to all Truro beaches.

Guests describe it best:

"The only problem with the villa is it is so relaxing and beautiful, that it was hard to venture out and explore the Cape."

"This is the by far the best rental home..."

"No expense was cut...will not disappoint..."

"This is the fun house!"


"Pristine and dreamy..."

As repeatedly stated in our 5 star reviews: THIS PROPERTY IS LIKE NO OTHER!

What makes this villa unique

This is the ideal vacation spot for the entire family to experience an authentic Cape Cod adventure.

As your host I provide you with the convenience of dealing directly with me...in part as your concierge, your friend, and your insider expert of the Cape. I want there to be inherent trust between me as your host and you as my guest.

Hospitality and attention to detail is what you will encounter. I do not "just rent to a renter" rather I host my guest because I want you to feel at home on the Cape.

If you have any questions feel free to ask me.

Paula Sociedade,

A family tradition

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Villa Sociedade 4 summers in a row (and are booked for our 5th)! The home is kept immaculately, and there are always updates and repairs, but what we love is that every summer, we return to what we expect and appreciate. Gorgeous views, fully stocked home (with so many extra little touches), great pool, and convenient location. Being at Villa Sociedade is our favorite week of the year!

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home is simply lovely. An expansive deck with an everchanging ocean view, a great pool and tennis court, and beautiful surroundings. The house has comfortable, pretty furnishings and is very well-equipped for everything you could possibly want in a summer rental. We loved it!! Also, Paula is a gracious and responsive host.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year we spent our vacation at the main house of the Villa Sociedade. My family enjoys having close access to the beach, but with the availability of a luxurious pool area . The interior of the home is comfortable, the landscaping is gorgeous and the view is amazing. Staying here is like being at your own private resort with all of the amenities!!

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything... close to the bay,ocean beaches and a short drive to Provincetown. It also has saltwater pool, basketball court and a nice deck to enjoy your morning coffee or watch the sunset with a glass to wine.The grounds are fabulous, beautifully landscaped( love the hydrangeas) with a outdoor shower to rinse the sand off after a day at the beach.

We were a party of 8 with a black Lab and were very comfortable in the house which has a open floor plan and floor to ceiling windows.

Looking forward to next year!!!

Fabulous House!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at Villa Sociedade. The first year in the guest house, which we loved, and this year in the main house, which is unbelievable! The views are fantastic, and the salt water pool is so relaxing after a day at the ocean. Longnook Beach is close and the bay is not far... a perfect place for our black lab to swim and meet friends.

The house architecture is a unique hexagon with wood throughout and floor to ceiling windows at the same time very clean and comfortable.

We already booked 2016 and2017.

Lovely spot next to Longnook

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed in the guest house in 2012 and then in the main house this July (2015). The location is hard to beat -- minutes from Longnook, close to options for going out to dinner in Provincetown or Wellfleet if you feel like doing that, and a quick trip to Jam's for anything you need in between. And the house is well-appointed and nicely fitted with everything you need for a vacation. We loved having the pool this time around, and we hope to corral our adult kids soon so that we can rent both houses and have everyone get to enjoy the wonder that is Villa Sociedade together!
