Why Michelle chose South Shore Massachusetts

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!

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!

Perfect for a family holiday

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for one week as a family of four with two teenage girls and felt at home instantly. The house is done up beautifully and very clean, the neighbourhood is very safe and quite. It is ideally situated for a holiday in the Boston area and our friedly landlady provided us with a lot of useful information on things to do and see. It is the perfect place for a family holiday and we would recommend it to anyone who wants to spend some time in a typical New England surrounding.

das perfekte Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

wir haben selten ein so perfekt ausgestattetes Ferienhaus gesehen. Es ist geräumig, hell, sehr liebevoll, modern eingerichtet, mit neuen Möbeln und Geräten. Es war sehr sauber. Der Platz reicht gut für eine 4- bis 5-köpfige Familie. Die Lage ist ruhig mit netter Umgebung. Ein Auto benötigt man aber. Zum sehr hübschen Ort Scituate mit Yachthafen-Ambiente, Kneipen und Restaurants für jeden Anspruch sowie großem Supermarkt sind es 5 km. Zum breiten und langen Humarock Beach ca 10-15 min mit dem Auto. Auf Mitte Cape Cod ist man in einer Stunde und dank Bahn- und Boot-Anbindung auch schnell in Boston. Vielen Dank auch für den freundlichen Empfang ! Wir bedanken uns hier mit einer uneingeschränkten Empfehlung für das Haus !

Nice home in a peaceful setting.

  • 4 of 5

Great property. We greatly enjoyed our stay with our two toddlers and parents. Small, well kept house was good to come home to at the end of a day at the beach. The kitchen was well stocked. Owner Michelle was responsive if needed, but gave us our privacy as well. The only things that would have made our stay more comfortable would have been an outdoor shower and/or spicket to rinse off the sand from the beach and on site washer/dryer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review, we appreciate the time you took to write it. We are actually planning to install an outside spigot as well as washer/dryer in the basement. We were hoping to do it before this summer (some plumbing and construction work needed) but could not do it on time. We should have a washer/dryer and outside spigot available for next summer. We would be happy to welcome your family again! Michelle Michelle

Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

The house was neat/clean. The kitchen and furnishings all appeared to be new. The yard was of a good size and the neighborhood was quiet. I would recommend the house for two couples or for a couple and 2 children. We were pleased.
