Wonderful, exceptionally well-maintained property. Beautiful location, Quiet -- nothing but the gentle sound of the waves at night. The beach is right out the back door... you can sit on the porch and enjoy the ships as they go by.

This house is upscale and is more like a nice home than a typical rental property. The kitchen is large and fully equipped... beautiful hard-wood floors throughout...

Though the house is technically in Quincy, it's in Hough's Neck, on the water. The street is quiet, safe, with neighbors that are friendly and helpful.

The owners are great to work with, very experienced with rental properties and what makes for a great experience. Again, the house is exceptionally clean and well-maintained.

There's is nothing "negative" about this property. I look forward to staying there next time I have an extended trip to Maass.

About Dick Beaumont

226 Rock Island Road is our original family home. It was a summer cottage when built circa 1915. Our family vacationed in neiborhood cabins before purchasing 226 circa 1936. 226 Rock Island Road has been an unfurnished rental home since 1981. We designed and completed the total rebuild of a new home in 2008 on the exact same footprint of our original home. We attempted to recapture the basic features of the original while increasing from 1.5 to a full 2 stories. We would hope that the 4th and 5th generation of younger family members are able to enjoy New England in this home with the current 3rd generation grandparents. We are making our home available to you for that same New England experience.

Dick Beaumont purchased this house in 1936
