“Great stay, superb hosts.”
Reviewed 24 August 2014

Everything was as close to perfection as possible: the location, the weather, the breakfasts, the accommodations, the garden, and the warmth of the hosts. And, great beaches are not too far. We had a wonderful time thanks to our hosts, and we have every intention of returning.

We love Carpe Diem and come back every year! It is the best guest house in P-Town. The owners are so friendly, and their staff are attentive, friendly, and very helpful. The breakfasts are amazing with specials and eggs offered every day along with so many other wonderful options. Then they offer a great wine and cheese hour giving guests the opportunity to meet and share their daily activities. We have been fortunate enough to make numerous lasting friendships with other couples that were also at the Inn. The spa is beautiful and relaxing. The location is perfect to get anywhere you want to go in town. Needless to say, our week at Carpe Diem is our favorite week of the year!! Thanks again boys:-)

Carpe Diem is an amazing Guesthouse - it is located downtown, easy walking distance to everything while quiet and tranquil. The breakfast is the best experience I ever had, owners and staff are respectful, friendly and professional, and did I mention the beautiful decor ? There is a room for every taste, the rooms are carefully described on the website - we stayed in 4 different rooms, each was a 100% comfortable experience. All in all, from arrival to departure Carpe Diem is a world class guesthouse. Our experience has been SO consistent that we several times decided to give business contacts a gift-card for a Carpe Diem stay. Everybody has loved it.

Room Tip: Big fan of Robert Frost room and the The Thoreau Cottage

The best place to stay in P'Town. It's a vacation in itself. You don't even need to leave the guesthouse to enjoy your entire stay. From the great staff, the amazing spa, awesome breakfasts or just the quiet peace from the courtyard, our stay couldn't have been more perfect. Rainer, Jurgen and Hans as well as the entire staff made our stay truly memorable -guaranteed we'll be back again and again.

Room Tip: Rooms in the carriage house are the best, beautifully decorated and comfortable.

Spent a very special weekend here with my family. We were made to feel special from the first moment.
My daughter in law and I both had a massage which was amazing.
The atmosphere was very relaxed and the service was superb.
Would visit again in a heart beat.

I can't say enough good things about Carpe Diem. The location is perfect, quiet but close to everything. The rooms are well appointed and garden beautiful -- simple, relaxing and makes you feel like you're really on vacation someplace special. The food is wonderful - they take such care in preparation and presentation of breakfasts and the guest happy hours are really nice. But mostly it is the staff -- they are attentive without being intrusive; always helpful and pleasant. And the spa is great; i had a massage with Robert and it was terrific - but i'm sure that all the massage therapists are outstanding.
