This charming summer beach house is a 4-5 minute walk to Rexhame Beach (Porter street access), one of the most beautiful, cleanest, sandiest beaches south of Boston. The location is an easy 30 minute drive from Boston and Cape Cod. During low tide, the water goes out very far, creating mini shallow pools in the sand for kids to frolic in and enjoy.
About a tenth of a mile down the beach is a section of medium sized rocks great for crab and starfish hunting. I have spent every summer here as a child and have many wonderful memories. A short walk from the house is a scenic Marsh with great sunset views.
My grandfather built this house 60 years ago and the original knotty pine walls have been preserved. The house is quite comfortable and has a nice backyard with a screened in porch for dining and relaxing and a private outdoor hot/cold shower. The area offers many amenities described below. The bedrooms are both conveniently located on the first floor. We have locked our things away in the 2 small rooms upstairs.
Please no pets or smoking.

This home has been in our family for 60 years. My Grandfather, who passed away in 2008 at 100 years of age built this home 60 years ago.
I have spent every summer here since I was a child and have many wonderful memories. It is extremely convenient to Boston and you never have to deal with the congested traffic of getting to Cape Cod. The beach is cleaner and the tide goes out the furthest of any beach I have ever seen.
* Short walk to the beach * Short walk to a scenic marsh for sunsets * Nearby golf, tennis * Great Restaurants * Convenient shopping * Close proximity to Boston and Cape Cod
We have rented other properties and have never worked with nicer people. They went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay pleasurable. The beach far exceeded our expectations. At low tide, it is sandy and very wide. You can walk for miles. High tide is best left for other activities.
The property is beautifully maintained. It was landscaped very nicely. We loved the side porch and yard for the grandchildren. The house is a short walk to the beach and a beautiful marsh. The house is on two levels. The second level is restricted to the owner. If we could have used this space, it would be perfect. The owners bought a new TV. The living room furniture is functional but not overly comfortable. (I am 6' 3" so I might not be the best judge of these things.) The kitchen is small and dated. However, it is very well stocked and we had no problems. The table sits 4. The bathroom was more than adequate. The master bedroom had furniture that appeared to have been bought in the last month. The second bedroom has two comfortable twin beds and was nicely situated off of the side porch.
If you have 4 or less people, the house is perfect. We had such a great time in Marshfield. If you want to be treated well, rent from this family.
