About Marc

Picture of house being built(see the view) and my sister trying to help - This house was built by our father when we were growing up. There is a railing on the deck now but still parents are cautioned to watch their young children near stairs and sea wall.

Marc purchased this house in 1971

Why Marc chose Hull

We would like to keep this house in the family and would to share it with you and still be able to enjoy views in the off season

What makes this house unique

Fantastic location, unusual character home

  • 5 of 5
Had a great one week stay at this unusual and cleverly designed house on the water. Plenty of outdoor space to enjoy - if you can get your family away from the comfortable reading nook. House was in great condition with all amenties that might be required. Marc was fast and helpful with his answers to any queries. Great location not only to enjoy Nantasket Beach, but also perfect way to access Boston via fast ferry from Hull or Hingham without the traffic or parking concerns.

wonderful views

  • 4 of 5
I enjoyed the wonderful view from this cottage's expansive deck or the waterside gazebo with views over the tidal waters of Hingham Bay - with Boston Harbor clearly visible in the distance. A very convenient location for a long walk along Nantasket Beach - or indeed only a short ride by train or boat into Boston to visit the great museums or take in a show or concert. The cottage itself provides all amenities - it's actually very eclectic with artifacts from all over the world - probably collected by the original Architect owner who traveled extensively. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance - In addition, Hingham center has a small square with a variety, including an café and an ice cream parlor to while an afternoon away; the shipyard has many other attractions - one being the TALBOT outlet.
One of my favorites was the 'Fruit Center' at the roundabout in Hingham.
I would rent this cottage again.

Great vacation spot

  • 4 of 5
Wonderful eclectic house with great views. The best part of this vacation was the location of the home. It was right on the bay with sweeping views from the balcony that spanned the entire length of the house and the hot tub. Easy short walk, even for my 85-year-old mother, to the beautiful beaches of the Atlantic Ocean. The kitchen had all the amenities so we had many meals on the balcony. Easy access to the ferry from Hingham and Hull so that we used the ferry to check out Boston rather than having to stay in the city. This was much more relaxing and enjoyable than being downtown. One bedroom with full size bed; other bedroom with queen bed on low platform and a bunk bed set and a twin bed, so plenty of room for many guests. Dining table seats 4. No A/C, but ceiling fans and windows and breezes kept it comfortable even in August. Very quiet and private location. Owners were very nice and helpful. Great selection of books to read in their library on a rainy day that looks over the balcony and bay; sooo peaceful.

It might be possible to stay here without a car because of the ferries to Boston and even the Harbor Islands. There's a local bus that stops on the main street just a couple blocks from the house to get to the ferry, restaurants, and grocery stores. Even an easy walk to pizza and a couple clubs along the beach. The ferry stops right in the Boston harbor where you can explore the Freedom Trail, the trolley that winds around historic Boston landmarks, and great restaurants in Boston. Flying into Boston Airport, take the free shuttle to the ferry that goes directly to Hingham or Hull and then catch that local bus or a cab. Could probably rent a car with Enterprise to pick you up at Hingham Harbor to avoid driving in Boston. Awesome adventure!

The only downside was the lack of privacy of the bedrooms since the walls didn't extend higher than the doorframe. If someone snores or children need quiet to sleep, there's no way to close off the noise.

Many more pros than this one con, so we'd definitely come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the thorough review with tips for future visitors. Your assessment of the house privacy is accurate in that the walls do not extend to the ceiling. To future renters - there is privacy in the bedrooms in that the doors lock and they are at opposite ends of the house. Happy to hear you enjoyed your visit.

Our amazing stay near Boston

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic holiday property this is!! We stayed here for the week at the end of a touring holiday in the US. The owner was really helpful throughout the booking process and during our stay, even dropping off extra games for the children. The property is in a beautiful setting with views of amazing sunsets over the bay. The property itself was ideal for our family (of 7); it is a great design but has a real home from home feel with books and art filling the walls and shelves. The children enjoyed swimming in the bay and the ferry to Boston is a trip not to be missed.We loved it here and would chose to return time and time again if only we lived nearer. We highly recommend this property, pictures really can't do it enough justice!
