Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for my family's trip to the beach! Our family was visiting from NY. From the moment we arrived, we were in love with the property and the location. The views are truly breathtaking. Each afternoon we found ourselves sitting in the Adirondack chairs enjoying a drink and watching the boats and the water. We were a short drive or walk to the village of Green Harbor, which was great to visit for a drink, dinner, or an ice cream! The house is conveniently located to Boston and to Cape Cod -- which we took advantage of!

We we were amazed at the attention to detail in the house. The house was spotless clean and beautifully updated. Everything we needed was there- beach towels, all the cooking supplies and basics, books, etc. The rooms were spacious and very comfortable. We could truly relax while we were here -- I wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you, Maureen, for sharing your beautiful home with us. We made beautiful memories while we were here and will definitely be back again next year!

Absolutely Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this house for the past 8 years. Its waterfront location offers stunning views of the harbor and you can spend hours sitting in the Adirondack chairs watching the boats pass by. Bring your own kayaks and launch them right from the yard. The house is very comfortable and the kitchen comes fully equipped. There are water views from almost every window and the beach is a short walk down the road. Looking forward to year nine!

In a word....breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our family getaway on the beach. This was our first trip to the cape and we found the location to be ideal. A short drive to Plymouth, Cape Cod, Boston, the rapid transit - or the "T"- which took us right to Boston from Braintree (There is a parking area where we left our car for the day and it was only a few bucks). The owners have excellent taste as the home was very welcoming and comfortable, not to mention well maintained. ALL the amenities of home - iron, cookware, cleaning products, air freshener, bath and beach towels, wi fi, even some spices for cooking. Other renters asked about the house, saying they want to try renting it for their next vacation.

Fun on the water is just a stones throw away...literally! My kids very much enjoyed skipping rocks, fishing right outside our door, swimming in the ocean that is just around the corner, playing on the grass, and hiking on the mountains of rock down the beach. Only downfall was that this side of the shore has colder water than on the cape...which we had heard from friends, but it didn't really take away from the fun.

Thank you Maureen, for allowing us to rent your beautiful home! We would definitely stay here again if we return to the cape.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for me and my family (8 people). Everybody loved the house. It has everything you need for a summer vacation. Close to the great beach. Nice and clean rooms. Great views over the water. Great porch to hang out on. Big living and family room. Big bed rooms. A nice and big house to spend time with family or friends.

Family Reunion 2008

  • 5 of 5

This property exceeded my greatest expectations as the base for a family reunion and a joint vacation for me, my wife, my two adult sons and their families. It's location offers semi-privacy with continual action of marine traffic parading past the deck, view of ocean, river, marsh and marina and a short walk to a very sandy private community beach. We brought a kayak and should have brought two for the river offered safe paddling when the tide was up and great exploring for the younger kids when it was out.

We came from VA & KY with our other relatives who rented elsewhere from OH or lived in MA and CT. All exclaimed how perfect this property was for a vacation and the site of our all day reunion on Thursday.

The owners were extremely helpful and interested in us enjoying our stay. They live not far away and we had the impression that any thing we needed or any problem would receive immediate attention. The house was very well equiped and supplied including the cooking implements for our own Lobster/Clam bake.

While we felt this was to be a one time event for our extended family, the experience has some of us rethinking that, perhaps, we should consider making it an annual event for at least my generation (55+)

Do everything ... or nothing at all! Begin your day with a breathtaking sunrise, perhaps while jogging along 7 miles of sandy beach. Stay on property and bask in the sun while sitting by the river or try your luck at fishing for your dinner. Take a short 3 minute stroll to swim from the private sandy cove beach. Located on the coast at the entrance to Green Harbor, this home is about equal distance between Boston and Cape Cod and is a moment's drive to great local restaurants, markets, churches, several golf courses, area beaches, yacht club, marinas, playgrounds and skateboard park. Walk to the town fish pier or launch your boat from a ramp located there. Browse in quaint shops and boutiques in nearby villages and towns. View a movie. Play mini golf or tennis. Area attractions include the Marshfield Fair in August, historic Plymouth and Plimoth Plantation. See gigantic whales from a whale watch boat or go on a deep sea fishing excursion.

Other Activities: outlet shopping, salons
