Overview

South Shore Massachusetts Apartment Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3-5)

The historic Manomet Point Beach House was built in 1884 for the Coast Guard Sea Captain because of it's perfect point-lot location and stunning ocean views. This 945 sq.ft. oceanfront apartment has been been completely renovated and updated and is tastefully furnished with a big-screen TV, full island kitchen, a cozy wood-burning stove, and a private deck. We're located within walking distance from a take-out seafood restaurant, nature trails and White Horse public beach as well as a bird sanctuary.

The property sits on a point lot that's just minutes from the charm of downtown Plymouth, about an hour south of Boston and twenty minutes from the Cape. We're also one of the few oceanfront locations where you can see dozens of seals in our back yard!

If you have a larger group, ask about including our stunning four bedroom, two bath main beach house as well. For more information on the main beach house or for the combined property, go to our HOMEAWAY website and click on property 267068 or call the owner.

About James

James moved here from Florida, where he has lived for the last 35 years. He's a retired Engineer, Corporate Manager, and now a novelist living in New Hampshire.

James purchased this apartment in 2006

Why James chose South Shore Massachusetts

The Plymouth area is so beautiful and rich in history and character. The Manomet Point Beach house is over 120 years old and offers one of the most spectacular ocean-front setting imaginable.

What makes this apartment unique

The fresh ocean breaze and being at one with the beach environment is so relaxing and is the perfect compliment for entertaining, reading or writing - all of which I enjoy immensely.

Darling place in beautiful Plymouth

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I recently stayed at the Manomet Point Beach House. It was very cozy and in a prime, gorgeous location. The owner was great, super friendly, and made us feel at home. It has a private beach, good seal watching, and there is literally the cutest take out seafood place almost next door. We got great, fresh lobster there and they even steamed them for us to take home! We would definitely return! Too bad I can't ship this place home to San Francisco to live in it there!

not what I expected, not what was advertized and a big disappointment

  • 1 of 5

The owner neglected to mention that the apartment in the 1884 home was the basement. Complete with fly traps, 4 fly swatters and lots of flys. Our weekend we shared with 8 college students who had rented the house....we heard it all as they partied till 5am. The owner did not mention that the place is NOT for anyone with disabilities. you have to navigate 14 steps to get down to the front door...at night the lighting is deplorable. I thought it was a ripoff. Tom Ellis

Thank you, Michelle and James. Our time at Manomet point beach house could not have been more pleasant. They both were so inviting and hospitable. They made sure we had everything we needed and more. The online photos do not do it justice. An experience we will never forget. Ed and Kathy Boyce

Owner's Response: A busy summer season always takes it's toll on our beach house and we have replacement deck chairs, some new lighting, paint and other upgrades already scheduled for fall so we apologize for any conditions that aren't up to our normal high standards.

An Ideal Family Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here recently with our 1 year old and family dog for a week toward the end of the summer (2015). The Manomet Point Beach house was IDEAL. The private beach (literally only steps away) is perfect for relaxation and soaking up the sun, the outdoor deck was great for a sunrise breakfast & morning coffee, and the lobster hut right next door has delicious fresh seafood any time you're ready. We were fortunate to meet James on our first day who was very kind and casual. A quick tour helped us feel right at home and we were able to enjoy our week to the fullest. We hope to return again next year. Thanks James!!

Excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

All I can say is wow! The views were amazing, the location is very close to local stores, and the owner is a very kind and thoughtful gentlemen! I would recommend this location to anyone who wants to visit the Plymouth MA area. We traveled all the way from Long Island and the trip was certainly worth it! The pictures only reflect 10% of the beauty! What a wonderful location!!!!!!

We will definitely be returning :)
