I'm in my 40's and have been going to Manomet for about 20 years. I enjoy everything about it. It's very peaceful and relaxing. Fun in the sun during the day and enjoying a barbecue on the deck with a nice summer breeze. I even joke that it's nickname is 'Mayberry R.F.D.' because all the people in Manomet are very friendly. Now I have 3 kids of my own and want them to have the same experience as I did.

PAULA PTAS LEWIS purchased this cottage in 2013

Why PAULA PTAS LEWIS chose South of Boston

I choose this property because it's beachy looking with the wood floors, walls, and most of the ceilings. I want to stay in a place where I can feel that I'm at the beach and getting away from Boston.

What makes this cottage unique

This cottage has wood floors, walls and ceilings which make for that cottage feel. The cottage sits on a double lot which includes a large yard off the wrap-around deck. Plenty of space for the kids to play. For convenience, there is a washer and dryer in the clean basement. Beach rights are included. ALSO....there are all memory foam mattresses in the cottage. NO spring mattresses. So you will have a good night sleep. The cottage is decorated with some rustic and cottage decorations for that away from home feeling. Customers like to vacation in a place that looks and feels different that their regular home. ALSO, a tide clock on the wall to see what times the tide is in and out. The big deck is the full length of the cottage. Plenty of chairs to relax and enjoy the breeze and salt air from the ocean.

Tide clock in the living room. Very convenient for planning beach outings. Want to travel a little lighter? I include for all guests: soap, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, dish washing detergent, paper towels, bathroom tissue, laundry detergent and fabric softener and a few other extras. Also, there are plenty of blankets and extra pillows for each guest. Beach chairs and beach toys for the kids. Plenty of wood underneath the deck for a small fire on the beach (must be contained). So enjoy a nice fire and few cocktails while sitting on the beach breathing in the sat air and relaxing on the beach. Brochures on the table for local attractions and restaurants. Born and raised in Boston so if you need some info on what to see in and around the Boston area and Plymouth, let me know and I can help. Pack-N-Play available upon request.

We very much enjoyed our stay. Beds were comfortable and the sandy beach was a short walk.

Only regret was not being able to watch the Red Sox on TV.

My vacation

  • 4 of 5

All the accommodations (towels, blankets, dishes, wifi, tv, movies). EVERYTHING we needed was offered. We could travel very light (personal belongings were sufficient). Having the washer-dryer was really appreciated. The air conditioning was also a must to enjoy our stay. The cottage was very clean.

Quiet, simple cottage in the woods - just steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this cottage was fantastic. We used it as a home base for day trips to Boston (using commuter rail), Plimoth Plantation, Woods Hole Aquarium, and a whale watch - and still were able to have beach time just about every day. It is not huge - but it was more than adequate for our family of 5. It was stocked with everything we needed - even some cooking basics. We had a great week and would definitely recommend this place!

Perfect price, perfect vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We were so blessed to be able to enjoy this beautiful home for our summer vacation in June. We have 3 teenage daughters who so enjoyed safely walking to a private beach, hanging out on a sofa, or making something to eat. The beds were so comfortable, and we loved relaxing on the shaded porch. Paula really has thought of everything, and it was so nice to have the basics on hand. Toothpaste, toliet paper, towels were in abundance, blankets, linens. It was just what our family needed. I would highly recommend this home for everyone. It's affordable and perfect size for a family.

My family & I came up from Georgia, we stayed 5 days. We absolutely loved the cottage, Paula was great! She answered all the questions that I had & was very sweet. The cottage was perfect, had everything we needed & was very close to the beach, which was a plus! We will definitely be coming back & will be using Paula again.

Peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My two daughters, two granddaughters and myself had a wonderful time. The location was good because it was between Boston and cape cod. We usually had the beach to ourselves. Many things which we needed were supplied
