A Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Every year we spend Xmas in MA and have stayed in a number of really great places, but this house is the best. The view over the bay is amazing as it is never the same with the tide ebbing and flowing and welcoming different feathered friends to watch from the dinning room window. The neighborhood is lovely--many locals who were friendly and welcoming as we walked our two dogs around. The house itself is comfortable and spacious. It quickly felt like "home" with all the equipment needed to cook a three course Xmas dinner. The turkey roasting pan and baster came in very handy! In terms of grocery shopping it was just a short drive to a large Stop and Shop. Plymouth was also very close with its museum, harbor restaurants and cute shops. Even though the weather was very brrr we managed some good walks and visited Miles Standish monument near Duxbury. Allen was a great host and very helpful with our few questions. We would love to spend some more time at Papa's retreat --maybe at a warmer time of the year so we could enjoy master bedroom deck, the fire pit and other "bay" activities. We are certainly hoping that we have found our Xmas house for years to come.

It was roomy and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

Upon arrival, the housing was very inviting. Easy access to the water.

Although tropical storm Jose was upon us, the stay was nice.

My daughter took funny videos down on the rocks and water as it changed from

low tide to high tide. The snails were her favorite part, "Don't step on the snails."

This was my first time with Home Away from Home.

From this experience, I WILL try it on my next trip.

Dream location, lovely house, friendly owner!

  • 5 of 5

The photos don't do it justice! Picture a large, comfortable house, space and equipment for lots of people.....waking up to the sound of seagulls and lapping water....breakfast outside watching sail boats and kayaks pass by....swaying in the hammock...enjoying the peace and relaxation.

You could enjoy a whole holiday and never leave this house :-)

Leave yourself time to switch off.

Allen was very helpful and friendly, also very quick to react to emails. Thanks!

About Allen C.

For our family, this isn't just a rental property. We take pride in the fact that every member has spent time there both improving and maintaining it (even the little ones), as well as relaxing and enjoying it. It's not uncommon to find us there celebrating birthday's, holidays, or just enjoying a great summer day. We've lived in the area our entire lives so we know it well and will make every effort to help make your stay the best possible. Our goal is to help your family enjoy Papa's By the Sea, as much as our family does.

Allen C. purchased this house in 1964

Why Allen C. chose North Plymouth

Relaxing or fishing on the rocks at high tide, catching crabs at low tide, swimming/boating out on the bay, or summer clam bakes. Nothing tears at the heart more than memories from childhood. 4 generations of our family have raised their children/grown up/or are still growing up at this house that has been in the family for over 50 years. The house has so much history and a unique foot print, as Papa himself kept expanding as his family expanded. We've continued that expansion to add more space so large families like ours can enjoy it.
