Why Michelle chose Scituate

Owner is from seafaring family with her father having been a merchant marine captain for 25 years worldwide. It was important to her to find a property right near the Atlantic Ocean where her father would ply his trade. As the captain's daughter, she accompanied him on many of his voyages and understands the peace and power of the ocean.

What makes this house unique

Whimsical touches of his maritime past on cargo ships, oil tankers and container ships are scattered around the house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

English translation of German Five Star Review:

We have seldom seen such a perfectly equipped vacation rental. The house is spacious, light, modern, tastefully decorated with new furniture and appliances. The house was very clean. The rental is sufficient for a family of 4 or 5. The property is quiet in a nice environment. You need a car to get around. The very lovely town of Scituate. Scituate with marina, great ambience, bars and restaurants for everyone’s taste, as well as a large supermarket is 3 miles away. It takes about 10-15 minutes to go to Humarock Beach which is a wide and large beach. It takes about an hour to get to mid Cape Cod and thanks to railroad and boat, public transport connections to Boston are fast. Also thanks a lot for the friendly welcome. We thank you for this with an unreserved five star recommendation for the vacation rental!

great stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented Michelle's house for a week and I am very glad we stayed here rather than the city of Boston. It was close to everything we did and we loved Scituate sooo much. The house was well equipped and welcoming and Michelle checked in to be sure all was well. We went whale watching in Plymouth and it was great. There were plenty of pans and dishes and it was nice not having to buy salt and dish soap like most rentals. I bought some sugar to replenish her supply. I would have brought less stuff had I known. Great stay! Thanks Michelle, for sharing your home. My favorite seat was the chair by the window.......

Lovely home and Michelle is very attentive.

  • 4 of 5

The house is well cared for, clean and nicely presented with good amenities overall. It is in a lovely secluded location, albeit still close enough to all necessary stores and highway links, as well as various lovely beaches around the area of Cape Cod etc. Take a nice relaxing ferry ride into Boston, (great tip Michelle) which is a lovely way to get there and can be boarded at the close by town of Hingham. We would have no problem at all recommending this lovely home and will look to visit again if returning to the area. Thanks for accommodating us Michelle.

Very clean and well taken care of.

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at Michelle's home with my two young daughters. The home worked great for us. Michelle was very responsive and great to work with. It's in a great location too; it is very accessible to the highway, while still being in the heart of what the south shore has to offer. The home is very cozy and perfect for a small family or couple. Thank you Michelle!

A wonderful place to celebrate Thanksgiving

  • 4 of 5

We recently had the opportunity to spend the holiday week at Michelle's lovely home in Situate. We chose this property because it was close to family, had a lovely kitchen to cook the holiday meals, and excellent proximity to everything the area has to offer. We were certainly not disappointed! The house was everything we had hoped for and much more. My granddaughter loved playing in the spacious back yard and the rest of the family enjoyed quality time between the very comfortable living areas and the large well appointed kitchen. And we walked off our eating extravaganzas at the state park just minutes away. Michelle was a delightful and welcoming host and we would certainly love to come back next time we're in the area.

A great south shore spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife, two young children, and I spent about a week at this relaxing location while visiting the south shore. Communication with the owner was easy and prompt. She provided great instructions and directions. The house is well stocked for all your vacation needs. The space was clean and well maintained. I recommend this house without reservation.

A beautiful house in a leafy neighbourhood!

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully kept house on a huge plot situated in a quiet neighborhood. All of the fixtures and fittings were of the highest standards and everything is included that you could possibly need. Booking was easy and all correspondence with the owner was answered promptly. The property is about 10 minutes drive to the beautiful harbor at Scituate and 10 minutes to the main highway. Go to Plymouth for Whale watching and go fishing with Mass Bay charters in Scituate. No hesitation in recommending this property or returning!
