The horseshoe pit/bocce alley runs the length of the house and provides hours of fun for the 'energetic folk.' The huge walled-in front yard is perfect for 'little folk' to play in while 'sun worshipers' relax in the comfortable lawn furniture. For 'all folk', grab a chair, towel or boogie board and step across the street and you will find yourself on the best private beach in the area-Nantasket Beach.

September is spectacular in New England and this house on this beach is God's Country!

About Jeanne Shine /

This home was owned by my grandparents and my parents before me. It has been my beach house since I was born. Every year we would pack up, leave the city and spend the summer months in the most wonderful beach just 40 minutes away from my hometown, Medford. Boston is only 30 minutes away. The news show, 'Chronicle' called Hull and Nantasket Beach a hidden gem just a stones throw away from Boston. Our beach is never crowded because it is private, yet it is within walking distance to the public beach with all sorts of activities, restaurants and shops. Now myself and my husband, my children, grandchildren, sister, nieces,and nephews spend our summers here.

Jeanne Shine / purchased this house in 1945

Why Jeanne Shine / chose Hull

We live close to famous Cape Cod, yet we prefer Hull because it doesn't have the crowds, the wild ocean currents or shark sitings that most beaches in the Cape area have. When you sit on our beach and your children play in the water, you can relax while watching them ride the waves. That's because it is a particularly calm stretch of ocean. In all my years here, I have never witnessed a child in trouble while swimming. This can't be said for many beaches along the Atlantic coast where horrible currents or deep drops in the sand exist. A day sitting on the private beach in front of our beach house is one you will never forget. If you need something at the house, just cross the street, get it and return to your beach chair. It doesn't get any better than that.

What makes this house unique

Although we prefer weekly rentals, we are willing to discuss shorter stays.This home is a home that is lived in ,loved and adored by all who enter. Some ask why we cook while we are on vacation and I always say, 'Because we love to eat together at our huge dining room table.'What's better than enjoying a barbecue or a home cooked dinner after spending the day at the beach? The house has places for everyone to enjoy, inside and outside. We've had wedding showers, birthday celebrations, christenings, and more because the house is so versatile. Early morning coffee on the porch as the sun rises is a must. Strolls along Beach Ave. admiring the other homes or daily walks or runs along the most beautiful 3 mile stretch of beach in the area are memorable. Biking around the town is incredible. The ocean is on our side and the bay runs along the other side. People walk to the bay at sunset to see some of the most spectacular sunsets in the world. Come and see for youselves-you won't be disappointed.

Let me start by saying this location is perfect! The Shine family makes you feel like family upon arrival. This house is so big and there is plenty of room for sleeping as well as spralling all over the house! Pleanty of kitchen stuff amd a big pantry! We werent sure if a light wasnt working or if the bulb was fried so we texted them to see if there were bulbs hiding somewhere and they came over to change the bulb!!! So awesome! They responded quickly to any questions we had and left us to enjoy our family vacation. There was a ton of parking too. To sum it all up, the house was perfection and the Shines made it that much better!

Excellent Location and House!

  • 5 of 5

Location is amazing as the house is across the street from the beach. The beach itself is amazing. We had five adults and seven children and the house was very comfortable as we all had a place to sleep.

The kitchen is well equipped with all the essential hardware to prepare our meals. The dining room seats at least twelve. There is central air conditioning, which was a huge plus for us (as this is unique for Nantasket)

We used the laundry machine everyday and was a big plus.

There is a large wrap around porch where we had many our meals as we watch the ocean.

The Shines were very easy to work with and made our stay problem free.

We highly recommend this house to any potential renters.

Fantastic week at Hull MA

  • 5 of 5

I am so glad we found this magnificent home for our summer escape (4 families) it suited our needs perfectly. It was beautiful, very clean, and very comfortable. The kitchen was pretty cool it had an inside window that accessed the dining area, the kids thought that was awesome. The kitchen was also very well-stocked. We loved all the pictures around the whole house, they tell a very nice story. The beach area is just across the street so that made it very easy to come and go as we needed. Nice quiet outside area with a basketball hoop and plenty of chairs and tables for games, gatherings and grilling.

The owners were exceedingly responsive and did everything possible to make our stay perfect. We look forward to another stay! Thanks for giving us a wonderful place to unwind! Definitely a memorable vacation!

Great beach house in Hull

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Hull in 2017. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Plenty of room for our large family. The kitchen was very well stocked with plenty of pots, pans, dishes and etc. The washer and dryer were a huge asset. We all loved the large porch, plenty of parking and the children and dads enjoyed basketball and bocce ball. The Shines were charming and very accommodating.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

IF you’re looking for a place to accommodate a large extended family with children, this is it! Our family has stayed here twice over the last four years. Located directly across the street from Nantasket Beach, no time or energy is wasted walking to this pristine private beach.

The kitchen is equipped with all the essential hardware to prepare and serve breakfast or side dishes for barbeque dinners grilled outdoors! The dining room seats at least twelve. There is central air to keep you comfy on those sizzling summer, muggy nights when the ocean breeze is not quite enough.

Having a laundry room off the kitchen to wash and dry clothes was terrific! We used the clothes line for towels after returning from the beach after using the outdoor hoses to wash off the sand.

There’s a kid-friendly room for playing games and watching TV and a formal room with fireplace where adults can quietly read a book or watch the evening news. This home is filled with family memories that made it feel like "a home away from home"" for us. We appreciate having a home where we can enjoy a summer vacation week with our 7 grandkids and their parents all under one roof! Owners are friendly, caring people and easily reached if needed.

Hull is located south of Boston along one of the most beautiful beaches in the South Shore-Nantasket Beach. It is close enough to neighboring towns like Hingham, Scituate, Cohasset and Boston to allow for daily excursions if one chooses to explore the area.Accessible to Boston by ferry or train. However, it has enough shops, restaurants, bars, boardwalk with miniature golf,icecream,ski ball,games, and a historic carousel to provide its own entertainment so one never has to leave the town. It boasts magnificent sunrises over the Atlantic ocean and sunsets on the bayside within walking distance. The private stretch of beach where our home is located is pristene.The ocean is clear and calm so parents can relax while their children frolic in the waves. Doesn't get any better than a home on the ocean.
