About Ned Hogan

We have lived in Rye NH since 1954. This house has been family owned since 1990.

Ned Hogan purchased this house in 1990

Why Ned Hogan chose Rye

A wonderful beach house - clean, comfortable, well-equipped. We love it. Great location in a quiet neighborhood, yet convenient to just about everything important - Wallis Sands Beach, a long curving stretch of golden sand with a great surf break is just a short 2 block walk.

What makes this house unique

Want to smell the ocean? Listen to the seagulls? Hear the lobster boats getting your dinner. We are close enough to everything, but far enough away to be totally peaceful!

A Lovely Vacation Home for the Whole Family!

  • 4 of 5

This property was perfect for our family! The owner was very kind and helpful. He anticipated our needs almost before we did. His recommendations were completely on point. The driveway accommodated our one minivan and two subcompacts. The master bedroom provided very comfortable sleeping. The second bedroom is adequate. Access to the loft is definitely for physically fit individuals with no mobility or visual issues. Most nights air flow in the loft keeps it quite comfortable. The living room, great room, and front and back porches provide perfect places to spend family time together. The kitchen makes food preparation easy, and the dishwasher helps to make clean up a snap. The beach was a very easy walk from the house. About a mile to the North is Odiorne State Park with the Seacoast Science Center and the Albacore submarine. Portsmouth and Hampton are to the North and South respectively for night life with short drives "home" to quiet, family friendly Rye. Downtown Portsmouth provides plenty of boutique shops. Remember to wear your sneakers. I, personally, will be revisiting Kilwins for the best salt water taffy that I have ever eaten, and I was raised in N.H. LaBelle Winery is another destination that I plan to visit again. Hampton has a New Hampshire-sized boardwalk with plenty of affordable souvenirs available for purchase and activities to keep a person occupied. One week is not enough time to spend in this all- around wonderful rental property!

Wonderful House walking distance to Wallis Sands

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed at 10 Eagle Rock Rd. for a week every July for the last five years. We love the house and how close it is to Wallis Sands State Park beach, without being too close to the traffic noise of Rt. 1.

This house is set back from Rt. 1 in a quiet little neighborhood just north of Wallis Sands State Park. It has a nicely landscaped lot with a peaceful ambiance, and two decks to enjoy the outdoors on. We love having a cocktail on the deck after an afternoon at the beach.

The house has great amenities, including a big beautiful kitchen. The great room that opens off the kitchen serves as dining, living, and TV room all in one, with plenty of space. The skylights make it a wonderful, bright and airy place to enjoy meals and socializing with friends and family.

We also love how close this location is to Portsmouth, NH, as we love to eat out on the riverfront, get ice cream at Annabelle's, or just browse through the shops or walk through Prescott Park. We also enjoy the public outdoor pool at Peirce Island, just across a small bridge from Prescott Park.

We have greatly enjoyed out stays at 10 Eagle Rock Rd, and would recommend this rental to any family wishing to enjoy the New Hampshire seacoast.

great beach house in the best area of NH Seacoast

  • 5 of 5

First started renting this house 4 years ago for a family vacation to celebrate my 50th birthday, and found we could not imagine not going back. We really enjoy the house and Rye Beach is the best New Hampshire seacoast town. The neighborhood is extremely nice and Wallis Sands beach is just a short walk down a very quiet street. I am originally from the New England area but live in Canada now and my stays at this beach house easily fulfill my longing for the New England shore ! Seafood treats like lobster roll, beach pizza etc are all a short walk or drive. The home owner is very attentive but not at all intrusive and we always have the feeling like its "our house " for the week and we treat it that way. The space in the house is fantastic, beds are all comfortable, the loft area for "the kids" is a favorite for my "early 20s" kids, the great room is a really comfortable room where we spend most of our time if we are not sunning on the front deck or cooking on the back deck. Outlet shopping is a short drive away in Maine and biking the shoreline from the house to downtown Portsmouth is filled with gorgeous views and rich with New England history. We close out each day with a beach walk at dusk and it just can't get any better !

Fabulous time!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this rental for the month of September. It was the best vacation we've ever had. Our weather was gorgeous. Location of the house is perfect, nice and quiet neighborhood, short walk to the rock beach or sandy Wallis Sands Beach. Short drives to town, dining and fun. Exactly what we were looking for. We had several visitors, the kitchen and living area is perfect for a party, the loft is great for extra overnight guests (not good for anyone with knee issues). All the comforts of home with the washer / dryer, dishwasher, etc... The home owners were attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend this rental to all!

New York Escape!

  • 4 of 5

Where do I start! The main living space is surrounded by windows, with trees all around and skylights! It felt as if you sitting in the trees! I mean I sat there in silence and enjoyed the symphony that was created by the wind and leaves. The rooms where super nice, the kitchen was ready for action, and the attic aka club house for kids was really sweet! Relaxing area, beach a skip away! The owner was a former New Yorker and was a great host! I am back in New York and I feel rested for another year of work, so I would say my vacation was great!

Perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

House is fabulous! Vert short walk to Wallis Sands, away from noise on Ocean BLvd, yet you can hear the sound of the ocean from the deck. Inside the house is also great. Although pictures acurately depict how the interior looks, they do not capture how comfortable and roomy it is. We most enjoyed the great room while our children really enjoyed the loft (they called it their club house). We had such a great stay that we plan to return next year.
