Overview

Hull House Rental Photos and Description

SLEEPS 6, WATERVIEWS THROUGHOUT

Enchanting 6 room, fully furnished home situated on Sunset Point 1 mile from Nantasket beach. This house is as cozy and charming as a home can get. This is not your typical rental.

The home is personally decorated, with fabulous views throughout. There are many charming touches to this home, including professional artist faux painting with a seaside theme on walls throughout different areas of the home. The gardens are delightful with the hydrangeas throughout the yard displaying a rainbow of colors during peak flowering season.

There are 2 bedrooms (master with a queen size bed and double in the second bedroom). The bedrooms master bath and laundry are on the second level, and the 1/2 bath on the first level.

There is also a den with a double size sofa bed. The kitchen was designed by Kitchen Concepts of Norwell and has beautiful granite counter tops, with a whimsical hand painted backsplash of sea life.

This is a perfect spot for enjoying the summer months, watching the boats go buy, or going to Nantasket Beach which is 1 mile from the house. You can also enjoy, kayaking, rafting and swimming in the water directly off your own personal dock. Please note: the docks are usually put in mid June, however there are no guarantees as I am at the mercy of when my neighbors who do the docks when they do their own. The commuter boat to Boston or Logan Airport is a 15 minute drive from the house. Enjoy wonderful restaurants scattered throughout Hull, Hingham and Cohasset. Please inquire about pets. If you would like to see more photos, I can e-mail them to you. Located in Boston's exclusive South Shore, with ferry and commuter rail service into Boston. Historic sights, attractions, restaurants, and recreation abound. Close to historic Plymouth, nestled among quaint towns with a wide assortment of restaurants, activities, attractions, antique shops and amazing sunsets. I encourage you to read the many guest comments available on my property. PLEASE NOTE: IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO CHARGE, I WILL NEED TO PASS ALONG THE EXPENSE TO DO THIS. CLEANING FEE FOR ANY LONGER THAN 1 WEEK IS NOTED IN THE RATES...

There is wifi and cable tv.

Serenedipity

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I had a visit to this lovely cottage in Hull, Massachusetts. Appropriately named Serenedipity as we found it by chance while looking through places available on VRBO and were immediately drawn to the house because of the beautiful pictures shown. Now many times you will see pictures of a house on the internet and when you get there the house isn't nearly as nice as shown. I can honestly say that the pictures didn't really do the house justice as it's even more lovely when you arrive!

I called the owner upon arriving and told her how I felt and ended by saying “I think I'm never leaving!

(lol)..... The house is fully equipped for cooking and even has several spices and such if you are into cooking. At high tide you truly feel like you are on a houseboat! Love this place.....

Spectacular water views

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was amazing. Pictures accurately depict the house/property. The home is clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated. All rooms have a view of the bay. The home has a waterside porch/direct access to the water, magnificent bay view as well as awesome sunrises and sunsets. If your into the "beach", this house is close to Nantasket beach, approximately a 15-20 minute walk. Nancy was very easy to work with and prompt with emails (we didn't need to call her directly). We greatly appreciate such a beautiful home being pet friendly too. I would highly recommend this home to anyone, and plan to stay here again ourselves.

Charming Home on the water

  • 5 of 5

We spent Christmas in this lovely, cozy, charming home on the water. Our college aged son had to work over Chistmas away from home so we brought Christmas to him! Hull is near to all Boston has to offer but it is the small coastal towns near Hull that are fun to visit and have all the New England character. The house has a great wood burning fireplace, waterside porch and fully stocked kitchen. We would definitely rent there again!

Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Normally I do not go on line to give comments or reviews for any product or service. This vacation, however, was different and so I had to. We live relatively close to this property in a nearby town. We just wanted to get away for a "staycation" so to speak. This home was so clean, neat, organized and beautifully decorated. It was cozy and warm and had all the amenities that we needed to cook or grill. The direct waterfront provided many wonderful evenings with good friends and family. The views were amazing. I highly recommend this for your next vacation.

We didn't want to leave this beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had the most wonderful vacation in this beautiful home. We had been to Hull before, but Serendipity added a whole new dimension to a memorable beach holiday. The house is beautifully furnished and the special touches of hand painted murals, completely equipped kitchen and ocean views from all rooms added so much to our week in paradise. I would recommend this beautiful home to anyone who wants peace, quiet and beautiful views. We were fortunate to be in Hull for the annual harbor illumination celebration - it was so lovely. For those that feel as we do, the cape is just a bit too busy and difficult to travel to in the summer, Hull is a destination to look into. We look forward to visiting and staying at Serendipity again in the future. Thank You Nancy for sharing your piece of paradise.

Absolutely wonderful cottage made our stay....

  • 5 of 5

Serendipity is the most charming and peaceful cottage that I have ever rented through VRBO. The house is beyond comfortable and cozy yet so very well appointed. One of the things that we kept commenting on were all of the little decorative touches that make the house so special. Everywhere you look there is something to charm you... it just adds to the special atmosphere of the home. Even in the middle of winter, the view and the setting on the water are relaxing and enchanting. I want to note - We celebrated my son's birthday while here and I prepared not one but two birthday celebrations for our extended family that live in Massachusetts. I prepared a small intimate dinner celebration one night for 6 and a larger Sunday brunch for 15. The kitchen is so well equipped that I literally did not have to feel "out of place" or "unequipped" when cooking. I had everything from small kitchen prep items to beautiful serving dishes. Nancy has been a pleasure to deal with as well and I would highly recommend the property to anyone considering it.
