Description

South Duxbury House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths,

Firstly, I'd like you to know that every photo here is taken from the property. I've noticed on other listings a host of photos of sunsets and beaches that are miles away from the property. Not here! Walk down to private bay beach from property. Secluded, quiet, perfect for family with children - upstairs and downstairs living rooms. Beautifully furnished with antiques, art, comfortable sofas and chairs. High above the bay, looks out at Plymouth and Clark's Island.

Located 35 miles south of Boston, historic town with great charm and amenities. House a few hundred yards from Miles Standish's farm. Private beach lovely for walks winter, spring etc. Standish Shore about a mile from Hall's Corner, filled with shops, drug store, grocery etc.

Photos of interior look dark, but the opposite is the case. So much light from windows, impossible for amateur photog like me to do justice to the light.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets considered

About morgan mcvicar

I am a writer and am inspired by the quiet and beauty of the house/view and the town. My Golden is in seventh heaven there, racing down to the beach when it suits her.

morgan mcvicar purchased this house in 1980

Why morgan mcvicar chose Duxbury

My family has been going to Duxbury since the 1960s, it reminds us of our hometown of Bedford, N.Y. with water.

What makes this house unique

Miles Standish State Park is a half-mile away. Never cease to be amazed at how quiet, private is the beach below our property. Fabulous bakery five minutes away.

Perfection--location, home, town, and owners

  • 5 of 5

My family (me, my wife and 3 kids) have rented this house for years, every summer. The property location is absolutely spectacular; it is rare in this town, where I grew up and now return to each year, to have such a gorgeous, unobstructed waterfront view from your backyard and a quiet, beach just steps away. It's also in a very quiet residential part of the town's waterfront area that is, in my opinion, far more pleasant than the more hectic Washington St/Powder Point area.

For those new to this part of the world, Duxbury is an excellent beach town located centrally between Boston, Cape Cod, and Rhode Island, and it is far less crowded and touristy than the Cape just south of here. There is a 7 mile barrier beach in town but honestly with the beachfront location at this rental you may be tempted to not leave the house! The house is a 2 minute drive/5-10 minute bike ride to Halls Corner for nice dining and shopping options and Scoops ice cream for the kids.

The house has a large patio and inside, tons of glass and comfortable sofas and chairs to take in the sights.....while everyone loves nice weather at the beach, one of the best things is watching storms pass through from the oversized windows. Quiet, clean, comfortable, with a lot of character, this is the ultimate beach house.

Also, the owners are extremely nice and professional people who make it easy to do business with...year after year, never had any hassles or surprises. I can't say enough about this property and will keep coming back every summer as long as we can!

Unforgettable

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were fortunate enough to spend an entire month at this oasis. An experience like no other, particularly during sunrise. The wildlife mix changes with ebb and flow of the bay. Sunglasses are recommended if you want to spot deer on the sandbar while sipping your morning coffee.
