About Marc

Picture of house being built(see the view) and my sister trying to help - This house was built by our father when we were growing up. There is a railing on the deck now but still parents are cautioned to watch their young children near stairs and sea wall.

Marc purchased this house in 1971

Why Marc chose Hull

We would like to keep this house in the family and would to share it with you and still be able to enjoy views in the off season

We loved the property and would love to stay There again.

  • 5 of 5

It was very cozy, the location was great! I was with my fiance and a friend of ours who are both skilled artist, so they really enjoyed the artwork. It was nice and open for our daughter to get around. We would love to stay there again!

Wonderful vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third summer renting this house. It is a fun, quirky house (so many features!) that my family of six (four surfing teenagers) and two small dogs enjoy immensely. Plenty of places to sleep. Tons of outdoor space. Spectacular views. Amazing dock. Glorious outdoor shower. And walking distance to EVERYTHING! The artsy set up of the house is fun and the books and artwork hold surprises every time. My kids fondly call it the Hippy Surf House. Good stuff.

wish we had stayed longer

  • 5 of 5

The view took our breath away. The collection of books on art, architecture as well as the artifacts from around the world can match those of a little library plus a museum. I could stay here for days simply going through the books. The architect of the house and its decoration are so interesting that I spent time lying on the bed admiring the inside. The top of the library has a platform designed to be enjoyed by the young heart. My kids climbed up there playing a wood instrument, singing and laughing enjoying themselves for hours. So six of us never felt crowed, all having separate places to enjoy. No problem for us sleeping soundly even though the walls were not up to ceiling and the two seniors snored. The south and north bedrooms were each at the far ends of the house. The washroom was small but functioned well, especially the shower pressure was excellent. When the house ran out of some supply, Marc sent the new ones ASAP. The beach in Hull was fantastic, even we just came from Maine mid coast. Ferry to Boston was indeed easy and affordable. We really wished we had planned longer stay in this place so that we could spend more time right here and the surrounding area. Will come back for sure.

Beautiful, Unique Spot

  • 5 of 5

I booked Marc's home in Hull for a weeklong vacation for my parents and two younger brothers. My girlfriend and I live and work in Boston, so we joined for the first weekend and several of the nights. What a beautiful spot! We loved Hull - I recommend bringing or renting bikes and kayaks - there's a great dock for launching kayaks out back. Great view of sunsets over the bay and Boston from the back deck. The house is a one-of-a-kind architectural piece; bungalow style, with a ton of light, air movement, and places to cook, eat, read, and relax - all nestled into the hillside overlooking the water. The hot tub is a perfect way to unwind after a day of activities.

Fantastic location, unusual character home

  • 5 of 5

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.

wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

I enjoyed the wonderful view from this cottage's expansive deck or the waterside gazebo with views over the tidal waters of Hingham Bay - with Boston Harbor clearly visible in the distance. A very convenient location for a long walk along Nantasket Beach - or indeed only a short ride by train or boat into Boston to visit the great museums or take in a show or concert. The cottage itself provides all amenities - it's actually very eclectic with artifacts from all over the world - probably collected by the original Architect owner who traveled extensively. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance - In addition, Hingham center has a small square with a variety, including an café and an ice cream parlor to while an afternoon away; the shipyard has many other attractions - one being the TALBOT outlet.

One of my favorites was the 'Fruit Center' at the roundabout in Hingham.

I would rent this cottage again.
