Recent South of Boston property reviews

  • Location! Location! Location!

    "Our family wanted to explore New England for the first time. Great location, close to Boston, Plymouth, not too far from P-Town. AND, being right across the street from the ocean...Soo wonderful. Many days we didn't even want to leave the porch. So much fun to walk into the adorable town for breakfast, dinner at the Fairview was yummy. The kids loved the freedom of being able to run down to the beach on their own. Our visitors didn't want to leave either. We hope to return soon! Thank you!"

  • Idyllic!

    "What a idyllic spot! Beauty & Tranquility Galore! Lovely, well kept cottage with so much charm. The view from the Living room and upstairs master bedroom is perfection. Great for kayaking as not much motorized boat traffic on the cove. The nearby owners were very gracious and helpful but not intrusive. Did I mention the outdoor shower--GREAT, we didn't take an indoor shower all week. Hope to go back again!"

  • Beautifully appointed antique house!

    "What an amazing experience it was to stay in this house while we were touring historical sites. The house is simply beautiful and the owners, Tom and Millie, are very kind and have added little touches to the house to make your stay even more pleasant - like sand buckets, beach towels and chairs, grilling equipment if you want to use their grill, plenty of towels and blankets...and the kitchen is fully equipped (minus the two glasses our daughter broke...oops). It's a great place for families, and easily accessible to Boston, Plymouth, and Cape Cod. The house was very clean! And there is just something about an old house like this...a charm to it you can't get anywhere else, a sense of history. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. If we ever have the opportunity to return to the Boston area, this is where we will stay!"

  • Summer Escape

    "As my daughter and I rented this house for one week last year and came back for seven weeks this year I consider it my home away from home. It is small but cozy and the front porch is a delight. House has everything you need. Great location with beach at the end of the street and an easy drive to Boston or the Cape as well as all the Plymouth sights. The owners are very easy to work with."
