About Dean

This beach house was a replacement for an early 20th C cottage that disappeared in the great Blizzard of 1978. In 1980 we moved back on the lot and built on piles. I am a retired environmental planner/urban development consultant; my wife teaches Russian at Tufts University. We have been in Cambridge since the early 1960's. We share this lovely getaway with relatives from California.

Dean purchased this house in 1964

Why Dean chose Scituate

A cousin at Harvard Medical School found this beach in 1964 with his three boys, and he purchased the original cottage there. The family has enjoyed this getaway ever since. We also appreciate the fact that we are less than an hour from Cambridge/Boston.

What makes this house unique

Great beach walks; digging clams; great variety of seascape and beach;

Perfect family vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This home and location could not have been more perfect for our annual family vacation. The owner, Dean, was very kind and helpful - we enjoyed meeting and talking with him. There were 12-14 of us there at any time (mostly adults as well as junior high age children) and there was plenty of room for all of us. The open concept first floor let us all be together for meal prep and evening activities. The kitchen was the best stocked with dishes, appliances, and spices that we've seen in 10 years of renting places. The house is right on a beautiful private beach and a first floor deck had enough seating for us to eat outside together and enjoy the ocean each dinner. We were all able to choose our favorite spots during the day including the deck, on the beach in chairs, or floating in the ocean on boogie boards and all be together since the home is right on the beach. Beautiful sunrises and sunsets from either the first or third floor decks were magical. Scituate is a lovely, quite town with a larger grocery store very close by. The "guys" went deep sea fishing leaving from town ( minutes away) and caught some cod for dinner and the captain gave us a bonus lobster! We went for treasured daily walks and runs on the beach. Even the neighboring public beach is for town residents only and is quiet. This is really a perfect home and location for relaxing and fun-filled family time together!

Panoramic Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was chosen for our annual reunion of old English university friends, mainly from England, but I am now Canadian. We are four couples in our early 70's and Dean's house could not be more ideal. It exudes comfort without being fussy, with three excellent bedrooms overlooking Massachusetts Bay and two at the back that are smaller. All the required amenities and supplies are at hand so check before bringing too many spices etc. The area is perfect; nearby unostentatious magnificent Cape Cod housing in gorgeous flowered, treed gardens in Hingham and Cohasset (just take a drive along Jerusalem Road). Scituate Harbor provides good restaurants with other compelling views and fine retail for wine and gifts. You can't do better than this.

Wonderful Family Gathering Place

  • 5 of 5

Amazing location and Dean and Vida are wonderful hosts. The house is great for 13+ with plenty of kitchen space, toys for the kids, books, gathering places and quiet spaces. Time of year does not matter -- as the ocean is beautiful year round. We highly recommend it!

Could not be any better.

  • 5 of 5

This place is outstanding and provided myself and a group of friends with one of the best weeks I've had in a long time. The house is spacious and provides ample space for lots of guests to have their own private space on the middle and upper floor but also have wide open communal areas on the ground floor and outside deck for eating and hanging out.

The middle floor bedrooms provide plenty of room for couples with the king size beds but also enough room for blow up mattresses for children. The top floor where i stayed is amazing, its almost like having a second apartment within the house, large king bed, sofas, beautiful flooring and an amazing view.

The living area has everything you could ask for, the kitchen is well equipped with enough big pots for us to feed a small army with a lobster dinner one night and for those who don't like seafood theres the grill out back! Sitting out on the deck at any time of day was my favorite aspect of this house but the evening provides you with brilliant sunset views.

The beach was perfect for the 3 young children we had with us, plenty of rock pools to explore and the water was warm enough for me to take several swims a day.

The owner was great, communication was easy and pleasant and all questions were answered clearly and quickly. Check in and out also was quick and easy and everything that could be done to accommodate and make our trip easier was done.

This place really did feel like home for a week, i hope to be back.

Thank you again to the owners for providing us with the platform for an unforgettable week and for booking the good weather!

Perfect for a family summer vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect spot for our family of 6 with lots of space for guests and plenty of amenities for all ages. The owners were very helpful with answering our questions and making sure we had a pleasant stay. The kitchen was well-stocked, and there were plenty of kids toys and games, beach chairs and other equipment, linens and beach towels, etc. We didn't lack for anything, and the house was clean and well maintained. The top floor with bedroom, bath, roomy living area, and balcony (with fantastic views) is amazing. Scituate Harbor has some very good restaurants, and the ferry to Boston from nearby Hingham is quick and easy. We strongly recommend a day trip to the big city. The house is right on the beach - you can't get any closer. Walks at low tide were so nice, and watching the sun rise and set while sitting on the front deck.....it doesn't get any better than that. We highly recommend this property and hope to return soon.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

You can't get any closer to the water than this house! Many hours were spent relaxing on the deck while the kids played in the sand below us. Perfect house for families. Lot's of space for everyone and well kept and clean. Dean is wonderful and helpful. Can't wait to go back next year!
