Recent South of Boston reviews

  • Stay here - you won't regret it!

    "This house is immaculate - it's like stepping back in time, but much more comfortable, with all the mod cons! Tom and Millie couldn't be nicer or more accommodating and helpful. Hingham is so gorgeous, it's like a film set. Getting the ferry across to Boston is really lovely too (after catching a bus to the ferry). Can't really say enough positive things about our stay here. Special mention for one of the comfiest beds you'll ever sleep in too!!"

  • Best Place to Stay in South Dartmouth!

    "When I knew I was returning to South Dartmouth on vacation, I knew I would stay here again! This time I brought the rest of my family! This home is large enough for entertaining, extremely clean and well-maintained, inside and out. Everything is as described with extra touches which make you feel so welcome and at home. The owners are very helpful in answering all your questions about the house and the area. It is a block away from the beach and the neighborhood is quiet. A great place to walk and the neighbors will smile and wave! The harbor is close by and is very picturesque and relaxing. A day trip to old New Bedford and the Whaling Museum is worth the time with a stop at Freestone's for lunch. Sunrise bakery is great for Portuguese pastries and lunch. There is so much history and beauty to see in the area and a "home away from home" here when you return from your excursions! I would heartily recommend staying here!"

  • Fantastic rare historic home

    "My sister visited from Europe and our two families stayed at this truly incredible home for a June vacation. All of us were in awe when we arrived and started exploring. The 1684 house seemed compact from the outside, but as we went through the hallways and stairs and discovered room after room after room, we found that we had to go through the house again to take it all in. The house has been meticulously maintained and restored, with antiques and period furnishings throughout. Each room is an absolute pleasure to take in, not only for the incredible 17th century woodwork, but also for the furnishings, which all have beautiful natural textures, warm neutral hues, and deep rich antique bronzes. We made our way out the back door and were in awe anew when we saw the yard and garden. The house sits atop a small river valley, and you are surrounded by lush greenery and the sound of the rushing water below. The yard is terraced, and the top terrace has a covered patio. The brick patio has dining seating as well as Adirondack chairs. Down some stone stairs is the next level, with wood chairs and a firepit. Down the next set of stairs is a gated fence (nice safety feature). Behind that gate was a surprise circular deck (like a large "O") which allowed you to walk along in the dappled light under the trees to the old well and stream (now a lily pond) and down to the mill stream with the Plymouth Grist Mill on the opposite bank. The beautiful towering foliage, colorful flowers, birdsong, and rushing water make the backyard a wonderfully tranquil and restful sanctuary. This is not just a place to stay. It's a place to experience. You get to enjoy a 17th century home with hidden modern luxuries. The Sub zero refrigerators, television, and wifi router are hidden behind cabinets. The beautiful quilt on the bed has a fluffy down comforter underneath. The kitchen is better equipped than any home we've rented through VRBO throughout the years. Other highlights: - Proximity to everything we cared about: lovely beaches, historical sites (there is a gorgeous tree-lined path along the river that you can take from the grist mill to Plymouth Rock), an 18 minute drive to Cape Cod, and an hour drive to Boston. - Variety of bedrooms and bed sizes - Sitting areas on both the 1st floor and 2nd floor - A layout that thrilled the kids - "I found a hidden staircase!" - A thoroughly clean house, gleaming tile showers - A wonderful property contact We absolutely loved it!"

  • Fantastic location, unusual character home

    "Had a great one week stay at this unusual and cleverly designed house on the water. Plenty of outdoor space to enjoy - if you can get your family away from the comfortable reading nook. House was in great condition with all amenties that might be required. Marc was fast and helpful with his answers to any queries. Great location not only to enjoy Nantasket Beach, but also perfect way to access Boston via fast ferry from Hull or Hingham without the traffic or parking concerns."
