Duxbury house description

Our vacation home is nestled in the center of historic Plymouth. It's a great location because it's just 500 feet from Nelson Recreational Park and Beach. Nelson Recreational Area has a beach, new 'splash pad' water play area for children, large playground, walking path, boat ramp, paved bike trial, picnic area and seasonal snack bar.

We are located in the center of historic Plymouth, America's 'home town'. The Mayflower II, Plymouth Rock, Grist Mill and harbor area are just a short walk from our home. Also, within walking distance, there are many shops and restaurants, whale watching and fishing boat tours, the visitor's center, Provincetown Ferry, and other historic sites. Our location is a very short drive from the primary highway and major malls so it also makes it easy to take day trips or pick up groceries.

Our home is a spacious, second floor apartment of a two family home with your own private entrance. It has three bedrooms (one bedroom with a queen bed, one bedroom with two twin bunk beds, and one bedroom that with two twin beds that can also be converted into one king bed). In addition, there is another bedroom that has been converted to a den/entertainment room with a television, love seat and computer. Our accommodations have one bathroom with a combination tub and shower. In addition, it has central air conditioning, high speed wifi, a fast large screen pc, two televisions, a wii console attached to the den television and a iPhone docking station/radio. Complimentary high efficiency front load washer and high capacity dryer are in the cellar for your convenience. There are two off street parking spots so that you do not have to worry about finding a parking space downtown.

Our home provides our guests with a comfortable and convenient setting to enjoy all that Plymouth has to offer. Our home is smoke free and pet free.

The combination of natural beauty, historic sites and many conveniences makes Plymouth a wonderful location for a vacation destination. Of the top 15 things to do in Plymouth, as ranked by, 12 are within walking distance of our home.

Plimoth Plantation (living museum on the Pilgram Colony and Wampanoag Site), the Myles Standish State Forest (13 miles of hiking trails), beautiful beaches and golf courses are all about a 10 minute drive from our home.

The Plymouth Railroad Station, which is a commuter train that services Boston, is less than two miles away from our home and provides free parking. The local bus line can be picked up right outside our home (just give them a wave) and costs $1 for adults and half price for children/seniors for a one way fare. The bus line has stops at the Plymouth Railroad Station, the large malls and various locations in and around downtown Plymouth.

There are many places to go for day trips: Cape Cod is a 30 minute drive, Boston and Providence are about an hour drive. We have tour books, maps and guest information to help you decide what to do in and around Plymouth. We would be happy to assist you with your vacation planning needs.

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: My husband, Joe, and I live in Connecticut with our two sons, Niko (19) and Alex (18). We love to travel and have been renting vacation rentals from HomeAway and VRBO in the US and internationally for over 10 years. We purchased this two family home as an investment because we ultimately want retire in Plymouth because of the quality of life and the abundance of things to do. We initially were going to rent both apartments but my husband's parents (Joan and George) loved the area so much, they moved into the first floor apartment and now provide assistance to our guests. We look forward to sharing our home with you so that you can enjoy Plymouth too :)
