About Anita Aherne

We have lived in Scituate for over 30 years and have raised our children here. It is a great town with friendly people and beautiful vistas wherever you walk or ride.

Anita Aherne purchased this house in 1995

Why Anita Aherne chose Scituate

It's wonderful living near the beach and we have spent many summers sailing from Scituate to other harbors and just relaxing by the water.

What makes this house unique

Short 5 minute walk to Minot Beach - the most spectacular beach in Scituate with great fishing, swimming and water sports! Lots of exciting places to explore by car, boat, bike or foot and also close to Boston and to Plymouth.

Gem of a house rental in Minot!

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented this home for my husband's family to stay during our Scituate wedding. I am SO happy we rented this home and it worked out so well! Due to lack of hotels in the area, renting a house was the best way to go for us and we are so happy that we found this home!

The house is beautiful, impeccably cleaned and very well maintained. It is a very short walk to minot beach which is a beautiful beach in Scituate. The house is stocked with beach gear for kids which we put to great use! I loved the location because the kids could play safely in the yard without worrying that they would wander onto the beach.

The house has everything you need and the owners (Anita) are very easy to get in touch with should you need anything.

This house is an absolute gem in Minot and we hope to return annually!

We love this home!

  • 5 of 5

This is such a great place, we are hoping to make it a regular summer getaway for us. This large house is comfortably located in one of the nicest areas of Scituate. It's an easy walk to the beach and a short bike ride to town. Everything about this home is well-maintained, from the cook's kitchen to the jacuzzi in the master bath. The house also gets wonderful sunlight that dapples through mature trees and ornamental glass. We especially loved the front and back porches, which allowed us the option of sun and shade any time of day. The back porch enclosure and the large, private back lawn were perfect for relaxing evenings with friends and extended family.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family visiting from all over the country (and world!) completely enjoyed our week at this beautiful home! The house is spacious and located minutes from Minot beach. We enjoyed cocktails and dinner on the front porch, riding bikes around the neighborhood and walking minutes to the beach. The owners are very helpful. We would happily rent this home again!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our three generations enjoyed this lovely, spacious home just two blocks from the beach in

Beautiful Scituate. It is quiet and comfortable, and the owners were so thoughtful - providing books

And toys for the children. The back porch is great for dining and watching the many birds who visited

Two feeders a few feet away. We would happily return!

This is a fabulous home. The house is in the best neighborhood in Scituate, a short walk to the beach. It was spacious, and beautifully furnished. The homeowners were very thoughtful, leaving us everything from board games to lobster pots. We felt like we were home. We spent every evening relaxing in the home's lovely screened-in porch, watching fireflies in the tranquil backyard. We hope to come back every year.
