This beach house was a replacement for an early 20th C cottage that disappeared in the great Blizzard of 1978. In 1980 we moved back on the lot and built on piles. I am a retired environmental planner/urban development consultant; my wife teaches Russian at Tufts University. We have been in Cambridge since the early 1960's. We share this lovely getaway with relatives from California.

The Owner purchased this house in 1964

A cousin at Harvard Medical School found this beach in 1964 with his three boys, and he purchased the original cottage there. The family has enjoyed this getaway ever since. We also appreciate the fact that we are less than an hour from Cambridge/Boston.

Great beach walks; digging clams; great variety of seascape and beach;

BEAUTIFUL BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
You can't get any closer to the water than this house! Many hours were spent relaxing on the deck while the kids played in the sand below us. Perfect house for families. Lot's of space for everyone and well kept and clean. Dean is wonderful and helpful. Can't wait to go back next year!

THE CANADIANS

  • 5 of 5
Our party of 8 recently spent a week in Scituate. It was everything we hoped for and we learned to pronounce it correctly! Walking on the beach with the dog walkers each morning was a highlight. School children on a field trip came another day and studied sea life right outside deck.
Location was great. We visited Fenway Park, Martha's Vineyard and walked into Scituate and enjoyed the shopping. Caught the commuter train from North Scituate into Boston on two separate occasions.
Place was very well equipped and we appreciated the TV being equipped with a PVR
The recommendation in the book as to where to buy lobsters was excellent.
Will definitely recommend this property to friends.

DELIGHTED GROUP FROM BOULDER, CO

  • 5 of 5
Just recently got back from Scituate. Had an absolutely wonderful time! Loved the house. Arrived late at night and we were wonderfully suprised to wake up to such an amazing view! Water was right up to the house! Loved it!!! Walked the beach at low tide and all of us talked about how that simple walk was a highlight of our trip! (So relaxing) House was everything that was promised. Loved how well the kitchen was equipped with everything we could possibly need. Dean was also a great help in giving suggestions for places to see. Much appreciated. Would recommend this property and would love to go back.

WONDERFUL TIME AT THE BEACH

  • 5 of 5
We just finished a vacation week here. Our party of 9 had plenty of room. For the first 2 days we had 11 people and still weren't cramped (two young children slept on mattresses on the floor of their parents' rooms, with parents in king beds; grandma had a double bed, two college grads had a room with twin beds, and two people rattled around in the huge suite that is the third floor). We loved being right on the beach. Just sitting out on the deck was like being at the beach. When I called the owner before booking, and asked about the amount of sandy beach, he was honest and said it depends on the tides. It could be rocky if the tides sweep in a huge amount of rocks. But during our stay, we had a good amount of smooth sand whenever it was low tide. At high tide, we sat on the deck or played games with the kids inside or collected pretty rocks. The house does sway noticably on its pilings (at times) which can be startling, but you get used to it. We did a lot of cooking. The kitchen had almost all the gadgets we needed, including a potato masher (as well as toaster oven, microwave, coffee maker, and tea kettle). Shaw's grocery store nearby was very satisfactory (we had four vegetarians in the party by the way). The house is very comfortable with a large living room and dining area. The only downside was the amount of stairs for grandma to get down to the beach. We highly recommend this house for any large group where everyone can manage stairs.

Our family group were here at Egypt Beach prior to the wedding of our daughter . We satisfied the maximum occupancy and never felt cramped. Thankfully it was unusually mild and walks on the beach were so enjoyable as well as exploring the rocks at low tide. The ocean sounds were always audible when the house was quiet - very relaxing and soothing especially for the parents of the bride! We felt totally comfortable in this house and think you would too. P.S. - The very nearby town of Scituate is typically New England charming and has everything you'll probably need including great places to eat.

Owner's Response: We're glad that the wedding went so well and that you enjoyed our house. To took a lot of effort to order that good weather for the first of the year. Try to come sometime in the late summer or fall when everything is really beautiful and the days are warm.

This was a great house for our family of 6, lots of space on 3 floors, with 2 decks, right on a sandy beach. WiFi and cable TV were excellent. Quiet location, very little traffic. Good beach walking and swimming right out front. House was fully equipped and well maintained.
