Fall Asleep to Sounds of Soothing Surf-Scituate Ma

Bedrooms 3
Property type house
Minimum Stay 7 - 180 nights


About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

Humarock, also known as the 4th cliff of Scituate, is a peninsula bordered by the Atlantic Ocean and the South River. If you've ever been to the Jersey Shore, it is like that most important question of the day, 'the beach or the bay' except here it is the beach or the river, and depending on the tide, that can be a very important question!

Our home is located near the southern most end of this peninsula, a two minute walk from the dunes, a natural, protected habitat nestled directly between the ocean and the river. The dunes can be enjoyed via a walking path. The house is one dune lot back from the beach. Beach access is a 100 yd walk to a private opening.

You will enjoy OCEAN and RIVER VIEWS from the STEAMER CHAISES on the upper deck. You will enjoy the peaceful surrounding of the dunes and sunrise from the ADIRONDACKS on the lower deck, and views of SUNSET OVER THE RIVER from the front deck ROCKERS.

There is an OUTSIDE SHOWER with enclosure, and a paved, fenced side area adjacent to the back deck.

The area is great for walking, bike riding, rollerblading, etc as it is generally long and flat. Ice cream shops, restaurants, convenience store, gift shop, bait shop and marina's all within walking distance. You can walk the beach for miles, shell and fish to your heart's content.

Wonderful Summer Cottage

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous house!! We had a wonderful two weeks at this beach house. The location was perfect......only a couple steps to the beach entrance but perfect view and ambiance of the ocean right out the back door. Morning walks allowed you to hit the beach, the dunes or the river bank. Quick bike ride to dinner, donuts, general store and more. The house was decorated exactly like a beach house should be. The house was VERY clean and very well equipped. Ideal outside living.....many porches to choose from! Can't wait to go back next year.

Fantastic Beach Getway Home

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with our stay at 8 Ocean Drive. From the moment I walked in, it smell and looked fresh and clean. The decor is beachy yet classy and somewhat fancy retro. I love the way Catherine decorates. The kitchen was open and spacious and the living room really comfortable and spacious. We appreciated that it had Central AC as it was a really hot week so a nice option for comfortable sleeping. My 16 year old son loved the finished basement at night so he could chill and do work on his computer or talk to friends on XBox. Having a full bath (with granite!) in the basement was such a nice option for people who didn't want to wait upstairs. My favorite part probably was the back deck which was not only wonderfully spacious but had a fabulous table that sat all of our guests at once. We could 12 or more at one time. So nice to just chill with family/friends after a fun day at the beach. My husband's favorite part was the outside shower. Very private and so convenient to keeping the sand down in the house. Catherine was so attentive to anything we needed and we appreciate her hospitality. Enjoy your stay!

We had a wonderful stay for two weeks! The house was beautiful and cozy-very accurately described in the write up. The house was very clean, and we were able to move right in! We love this end of the beach-the beach was quiet and we had plenty of room to spread out. Many restaurants and stores etc. were close and convenient. We love this house and plan to come back next summer.

We had a wonderful week at the cottage! The beach was beautiful! Very convenient for my family and I to go down for short visits because of how close it is! The beach wasn't crowded so plenty of space to spread out! We loved waking up to the smell and sound of the ocean...that was the best part! We enjoyed evenings on the top deck where we would have wine and cheese while watching the surf. It was a very relaxing week. Can't wait to visit again!

Fall asleep to the soothing surf ...

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was very enjoyable at this Humarock home. The house was exactally what we expected by the pictures. We had gorgeous weather and the walk to the beach was very short. We had friends come down who commented on the home and I would certainally recommend this to my friends in hopes that they may do the same rental in the future.
