Beach house on the ocean located at Humarock Beach. Magnificent west views of the South River across the street. Large decks on both sides of the house. Fish off the beach or go for a short walk north on the beach and try your luck fishing where the ocean and river meet.
Charter fishing avail in the harbor. Canoe rentals on the river a quick 15 minute drive away. Cohasset, Scituate, and historic Plymouth are just around the corner. A great place to get away from everything and relax on the ocean.

Owners were very responsive: the microwave stopped functioning while we were there and one of the owners brought a new one the next day after confirming we didn't require it that night.
There is a deck on the front of the house that overlooks the sound with no block in the view and a deck on the back of the house that overlooks the beach with no block in view. The staircases to both are sturdy with about 10 steps each. The front deck had the grill, which worked fine.
The beach was covered in stones. They were smooth, but made flipflops of water shoes necessary. A 10-15 minute walk to where the river and ocean meet bring you to a much less rocky beach which was great for our 13 month old to play at. But with a little raking and you can make a tidy sand pit: the stones only seem to be about one layer deep before you find sand.
The main level of the house is one long great room, the division of the room only made by the couches, which were dated and a worn but comfortable. There is a TV in the living room. Then there are 2 bedrooms, both with AC, with a bathroom inbetween. One room has a full sized bed with a closet full of childrens (and baby-appropriate) toys and board games and a tv. The other is 2 twins. The staircase upstairs is in the room with the twin beds. This wasn't too inconvenient for us.
Upstairs is a large bathroom, 1 room with 2 twins, closet, dresser, a balcony that overlooks ocean, and 1 room with a king, large closet (fit 2 pack and plays), ac unit, dresser with tv, a balcony that overlooks the sound. All 3 rooms have skylights.
The house was VERY liveable, but needs some TLC. The kitchen is quite the hodgepodge of tools, but everything we needed was there.
The location was great. It was about a 45 minute drive into the city to the aquarium, 20 minutes to the grocery store, 25 minutes to a place with a target, walmart, etc. The mileage from point a to point b in the area doesn't reflect the travel time well: most of the roads are curvey and go through neighborhoods with the speed limit varying between 25 and 35 mph.
We mostly spent our time at the house. We took 1 trip to the city and 1 trip to Plymoth for whale watching, which was prolific in whale sightings! There was 1 unseasonably hot day at 90 degrees, the day we arrived, but beyond that we had very little need of the ac units and enjoyed the ocean breese until our departure on June 5. 7 and a baby occupied the house very comfortably. We would be happy to return
My husband, our two young boys (4 and 5) and I stayed here for one week. The house has a lot of space and is nicely laid out. The views are amazing from both the front and back of the house! What a treat! I cannot express the convenience of being right on the beach with young children. The house had everything we needed, including beach chairs, towels and some small beach toys for the kids. This was so nice since we live in CO. We loved our stay here! I would recommend it to anyone who wants a great house on a great beach in a great area!
This house was perfect! Both decks are gorgeous and have awesome views. At night it does get a little chilly on the ocean side deck so definitely pack sweatshirts and sweatpants. We stayed for 10 days have nothing negative to say. Both weekends we had cookouts with our families and friends and everyone had a blast. We made lobsters for 6 one night and the house had all the pots, pans, plates and utensils we needed.
House was very clean when we arrived. The grill was a little dirty, but we had brought our own so it wasn't a worry. The new upstairs bathroom was very nice. The owners were both very nice and accommodating and one even stopped by during the week to make sure everything was going ok.
We loved it! We are organizing with our friends to plan a week for next summer!
We agree with all of these reveiws. This cottage is the greatest place to enjoy Humarock beach. The location is just beautiful. Steps to the beach, beautiful views out every window. The breezes, the porches, the beach, the river - we found starfish and sand dollars, had campfires every night, enjoyed the waves and walked for miles. Our five kids fit just fine and the cottage is perfectly appointed and spotless. Really, it's just the trip we were hoping for and this cottage delivered. The owners are very easy to work with and the reservation was flawless.
Had stayed at this beach house a number of years back for the winter season and found the owner's to be very easy to deal with and professional. The house is well laid out accommodates plenty of people.
When my fiancee and myself were looking for a waterfront venue for our wedding this was a natural spot. The owner's were very flexible for partial week rentals and had actually made improvements since our last stay a few years back which was a nice surprise.
We also found that we left some wedding gifts at the house and the owner was more than accommodating on finding them and sending them too us which was much appreciated.
You really can not go wrong with this rental and will be have a great week.
We stayed here in June of this year and found the house perfect for our family from Wisconsin. Our 3 teenagers found plenty to do up and down the ocean beach or the river. My parents - who are both in their mid 70's with back issues - said the stairs up were "not too bad" and the view was worth it! We bought fresh lobsters from the wholesaler down the street ...Yumm Yumm! We did lots of sight seeing from Salem to Boston to Plymouth to Provincetown. The house was perfectly located for us to venture out throughout the week. Thank you for a great vacation!
