About Juliet Floyd

Juliet bought the house in 2005. She and her husband are university professors in the Boston area. With friends and children they love the house away from the city. In the fall of 2012 a major renovation of the house went forward, changing what had been a 1.5 storey cape to this much larger home. The purpose was to add a study for Juliet, a garage, and room for guests and visiting colleagues. The decks off the house make it a splendid retreat in any season of the year, outdoor views of the ocean and fresh air may be easily gained from all levels of the home. We only rent in the summer, minimum stay for a month. The private yard is perfect for play or rest. While the lapping ocean waves can be heard in the distance, the house is a bit quieter than those directly on the waterfront, as it is across the street, up an incline. It is also an open but flexible floor plan design, which feels cozy for a small group, but is roomy enough for 10 people, each of whom can retreat to their own section of the house when they want to. Our architects did a marvelous job with the renovation: see http://www.rogerhoit.com/seaside_inspiration.html

Why Juliet Floyd chose Hull

A commuter boat or easy drive takes us to the city, but we feel as if we are far away in Maine or on the Cape while we're there. Great people in Hull: a mixed and festive community. The natural amenities are extraordinary and Hull will never be overbuilt. Simply a beautiful, restful place, closer to the city. Our neighborhood is the tops!

What makes this house unique

Commuter boat to the city 22 minutes, just .7 mile away; 240 degrees of water views; 360 degrees of sun in the house and yard. A great reverse commute from the city, as well as a commute to the city. No flood worries, no wind worries, but we see all the large waves from the fall nor'easters. Beautiful every time of year, low key and fun. We relax there.

LOVELY home, great amenities, spectacular views!

  • 5 of 5
This home is very accurately described and did not disappoint. The photos and descriptions were great, but experiencing the views first hand from all the decks was thrilling! We had a wonderful family reunion and cherished each morning coffee and evening cocktail together on the front, back or rooftop deck. We cooked each evening (plenty of pots, pans and pantry items!). The gas grill is a tad small if you are cooking for 10, but we managed just fine. We took a few excursions to Boston on the ferry, to the sand beach (dropped gear and people at Y street) and to the carousel. We took walks along the seawall and experienced the "Illuminations Event" the first night.

The convenient location for quick side trips to Derby Shops(lunch at Burton's Grill was fabulous) and Trader Joe's was helpful. And there's a great Hot Yoga Studio next to Stop N Shop in Hingham. The home is away from the hustle and bustle of Hull--- in a gorgeous quiet neighborhood.

The home was very clean, and well equipped with linens, towels, and beach needs. The outdoor shower, and washer/dryer were great conveniences too.

Tom the manager was quick to respond and had many helpful hints since he knows the area so well.

Overall we all had a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE in this lovely home and would recommend it for others planning family get togethers.

A large home in Hull that offers much more.

  • 5 of 5
My family spent two weeks at this home and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We had 9 total (6 adults and three children) in our group and the home was perfect for that size group. The home is spacious and has an open feel. The kitchen is well equipped for in home cooking. There is a back yard where the children played. This was nice since it is enclosed and you can keep an eye on the kids from the kitchen window. There also is an outdoor shower which was great after a day at the beach. The owner also had beach chairs and an umbrella available for use which was helpful for our beach visits. We took many trips into Boston from the Hull Ferry which is about 1 1/2 mile from the home. The owner had a "helpful hints" books which I used a lot for restaurants and things to do. The home is not in the busy beach area, (great views of the sunset from the house though) but did not find it a problem to drive to that area only to come back to the quiet of the street. I would recommend this home to anyone looking to vacation in Hull.

A most perfect house

  • 5 of 5
The days in the house were wonderful! It is a perfect place for holidays. One has an unspoilt view over the sea as well as on the skyline of Boston, and this is a luxury that is not offered everywhere in Hull. You can admire the sunsets and enjoy long walks on the beach. You may meditate on the ideas sailors had about the horizon of the sea and the end of the world in former times or go for a run. But you might as well stay in the house or the garden because the house is perfectly equipped – even with a piano. There is lots of space for relaxing, working or entertainment. And if you are a passionate cook you will love the kitchen because one can find everything one is used to in ones own home and more. The supermarkets nearby offer a variety of good food and fresh fish. Last but not least it is worth mentioning that one does sleep very well in this house.

Lovely Home, Great Location

  • 5 of 5
This recently renovated home was perfect for our five-person group, and it lived up to its description and photos in the online listing. The house was clean, roomy and comfortably furnished. The open layout on the first floor made the the kitchen, dining room and living area seem spacious. The bedrooms are outfitted with quality mattresses and bedding, and the master bathroom is new and inviting. We took advantage of the third floor deck to watch the beautiful sunsets. The outside shower is a plus for rinsing off sand before entering the house. As for the surrounding area, we found plenty of activities to occupy us during our week-long stay (including two trips on the commuter ferry to Boston, visits to Nantasket Beach, biking, etc.). The owner was responsive to our inquiries, and It was also helpful to have a property manager nearby to greet us on our arrival and answer our questions.

Marvellous house with great view

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for vacation. We had the vacation of our dreams!
The location is magnificent, easily accesible and close to all the nicest beaches of the area. The house itself is recenlty renovated and very thoughtfuly designed. The view over the ocean is unobstructed from every room of the house and of course from the main terrace and the balconies -not to mention the room on the top of the house which has the greatest view and which is the best place to relax or to concentrate. It is very spacious (it can easily host 2 families), comfortable and fully equipped. Also, the kids appreciated especially the big back garden.
The owner was a very kind person and the manager, who lives just down the street, could come immediately whenever it was needed (that was really convenient). It also has to be said that the house was very clean - irreproachably clean.
The place deserves to be fully starred. I would highly recommend it to a friend.

Hull is a beach town on a peninsula in Boston Harbor (see http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PpnKx_Dl08I). It is part of the south shore of Boston, neighboring communities include Cohasset and Hingham. But Hull is distinguished by having a beautiful white sand beach of over a mile, water everywhere, a relaxed and festive atmosphere with delicious and affordable restaurants and fish shops, and it is also commutable to Boston by MBTA commuter boat.

You feel as if you are away from it all down in Hull, but you are right near the city. Allerton Hill, where this house is located, is perhaps the best neighborhood in Hull, with spectactular views of the Harbor Islands and a quiet, green feel.
