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 here our entire lives so we know the area 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 Massachusetts

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.

Great place for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this place for 4 nights to celebrate 2016 Christmas. We were 9 adults, 2 toddlers and 1 newborn. We had a great time in this beautiful house! All rooms are very comfortable, we were able to ajust the heat very easily and the kitchen is convenient for a big family.

The waterfront view is amazing and we can't wait to rent again this place during summertime to enjoy the outdoor space!

Allen is a very responsive person. He answers to emails/texts quickly and did his best to accommodate us.

Thank you Allen for this great stay!

Great property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over a 4-day period for a small family get together. The location next to the water was ideal. The kids loved playing on the rocks next to the water. If we hadn't done anything else during our trip, they probably would have been content to play on the rocks the entire time. We did, however, take the opportunity to venture off to Boston and walk the Freedom Trail, as well as tour Plimoth Plantation. The location of the property was ideal for these day trips.

We had a minor miscommunication with the owner regarding our arrival, however, the owner was responsive and worked quickly to correct the mistake. Overall, it was a great trip and we'd happily repeat it again.

Beautiful view from property.... but inside needs some work.

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay.... the best part was the view and size of home. The problem with the property is they need to do some major improvements inside like:

The couches need to be replaced... they are worn out and not comfortable at all;

The dishes, glasses, and mugs do not match... so having guests over for a dinner was a struggle;

None of the towels or wash cloths were matching and they were very hard and rough as if they were line dried...definitely need to be up graded;

The bed mattresses are AWFUL other than the master.... my back killed me all during my stay. This is very unfortunate as people come on vacation to rest;

There was NO Tiki torch oil, and no wood for the fire pit.... I asked for some and it was not provided... so I left 2 stacks of wood for the renters coming in directly after me;

There are very limited TV channels and you cannot rent videos... so know this before you rent;

I think if these items were updated... this property would be an A+.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry you were disappointed with so much regarding our house. Unfortunately, your negative comments are the first we've received in literally every category. Regarding a few of your comments, it appears that your expectations were more in line of our home being a bed and breakfast or hotel, which we are not. This is our family home that we use ourselves and matching dishes, mugs, towels, etc. have never been something that we or others have looked for in our time there. In fact we love our eclectic mugs and plates! P.S. I also feel it necessary to mention here for others reading this that this renter had to be asked to move their vehicle off of the lawn as they parked it directly up against the house driving over the lawn and concrete walkway. I can't help but think that our first negative review is tied to the first time we had to enforce a rental rule stated within our rental agreement.

The owner was great to work with, helped us with all of our questions about the house and area. Check in/out couldn't have been easier. The house was charming, the pictures don't do it justice. A quaint cottage in a quiet community on the bay, with plenty of room and modern amenities. We tried not to pack our days full of activities so that we could enjoy the house, the view and the bay. We had 4 adults, 2 young boys and a pug and had plenty of room. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. The house as a whole had just about everything you need except for food and drink! We were very close to Plymouth and all the attractions there. We also visited Carver (Edaville USA) and Cape Cod (Woods Hole), and Wareham (Water Wizz water park). None of us wanted to leave and we definitely want to come back again!

A few minor suggestions for the owner:

The fire pit was definitely well used by the end of the summer, may need a new one for next year.

A TV in the 2nd upstairs bedroom would be a nice addition.

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Papa's by the sea was the perfect house to end our 2 week New England fall foliage vacation. Our group of eight from Montana was amazed at the house, we got up early every morning to see breathtaking sun rise over the ocean. The house was very clean and well equipped in the kitchen. the beds were comfortable and there was plenty of linens. We loved sitting outside and watching the local fishermen clam digging and even did some our selfs. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.
