About the property

On the water in Scituate Harbor


Sail or drive to my seaside home, my little piece of heaven on a peninsula by Scituate Harbor. Located across from the yacht club and shopping district. Relax on the beach, stroll to the stores, award winning restaurants, galleries, movie theatre and churches. Cruise on Scituate Harbor, whale watch anyone? Use my kayak? Located 20 miles south of the best city in the world - Boston - and 20 miles north of Plymouth Rock, a historical gem - is a room with a view furnished with a queen size Murphy bed, fridge, micro, toaster oven, coffee pot, tv and hi speed internet. Enjoy the views of my awesome community from the deck! Also close by is Wamputuck State Park, 1 of a handful of wonderful walking, hiking trails. The foliage in autumn is astounding! This is a 3 story home. Guest resides on first floor. My puppy and I live very quietly on the upper floors.

Longer stays are welcome.

About Marj

I am one of a handful of lucky folks that get to eek out a living as an artist. My main focus is melting glass although I draw, dabble in paint and I am a metalsmith, and fiber artist as well. My main website is glassthingsdotcom. I live a small simple life here with my puppy Simon. We take long walks every day and share a lot of laughs with passerbys and a handful of wonderful friends.

Marj purchased this house in 1995

Why Marj chose Scituate

I meet the most wonderful people as a host! I have lived in town for 48 years. If you are looking for something I am pretty sure I can find it for you or direct you to it.

I am a pretty busy lady and will be around as much or as little as you wish. You will be the boss of this!

What makes this house unique

We are pretty low key here. It is truly important to me my guests have a wonderful, and relaxing visit with us. Fall asleep with the lull of the ocean waves. Awake each day and enjoy fresh brewed coffee and a little nosh!

If I am ever in the area I hope there is vacancy. Color therapy and fresh air and I am leaving a new woman.

Owner's Response: It was so nice to come in that grey day and see you and Susan snuggled in the cozy corner with blankies, books, treats and conversation. All was well in the world that moment! Thank you for being such great guests! ~Marj

I lost $550

  • 1 of 5

I have never given a bad review after using Homeway (a fantastic service, I might add!) many times, but this, unfortunately, is a situation that I think potential renters need to be aware of. The owner is sometimes nice but, in key situations, extremely uncooperative. Because the owner refused to give me a receipt she generated, I lost a company reimbursement of $550. I explained this to her, but she still refused. In addition, she dragged her feet returning some items I left at her place. I still have not received them after two weeks, despite my best efforts. She has a disability and used that as an excuse not to send the items right away but she manages to keep up the rental in many ways so I am unhappy to say that is a poor excuse. As for the rental itself, we were disappointed. It was too small for us. It may be okay for you but we felt very cramped. In closing let me say that even though we tried our best to take careful care of the place the owner did not even say thank you when we left. It felt like the cold shoulder. It was a disappointment. Again, we are so sorry to leave such a poor review but we are doing it in the name of protecting future renters. Please be careful.

Owner's Response: I regret the guest found the room size too small. I show an accurate portrayal of my offerings. The immaculate room this guest stayed in includes a comfy queen size bed (Murphy Bed), desk, chair & ottoman and microwave, toaster oven, refrigerator, coffee maker and double size closet with California Shelving - with ocean views and a full size immaculate private bathroom equipped with toiletries and plenty of towels. I also supply coffee, morning muffins or other baked goods in addition to a basket of goodies. What this guest failed to mention is without my permission her husband slept on a comfortable sectional sofa in my private studio space. I did not mention to these guests I found this objectionable. This guests poor husband clearly did not wish to be on this trip and I wanted him to be as comfortable as possible. I have no idea what 'disability' this guest refers to me having. I have never been disabled a day in my life. Nor do I ever give people the cold shoulder, ever. I offered this guest a receipt on my business stationary and she was angry I did not have a letterhead from VRBO. I explained to her how to get what she wanted. The room rental cost for this guest was 375. for 3 nights lodging not 550. The claim about not returning the guests underwear she left here also is not true. I tried several times to do so. I have all the emails showing this failed effort. Sharon your goods are still by the front door packed in a box and ready to be shipped or picked up. I go above and beyond for all my guests and a little bit further in some instances like I did with these guests.

Not what we expected!!

  • 2 of 5

Marj was very nice. The space was much smaller than we expected and it was just a bedroom and a bathroom no sitting area or table to eat at. It is across the street from the ocean not on the ocean and a 10 min walk to the lighthouse. Quite noisy there as well.

Owner's Response: Why would you make up such things Theresa? Did you not see the sign on the desk stating please enjoy the common areas in my studio including use of tables as some enjoy a meal at one of the tables in my studio. A meal prepared in your room because the room is so well equipped to do so. Also stated on this notice in a frame on the desk is to 'feel free to enjoy 'anything' that is not behind the screen in studio which is a private space.' I don't get it. My studio is immaculate and others enjoy the space so much. If for some reason you did not see this notice why did you not mention this to me. You may recall I asked you several times - at least once a day if there was anything you needed. You aways replied everything is fine! I am sad for you that you did not have a nice time here. Certainly all these issues you speak of that really were not issues could have been easily resolved. I don't get it...

Loved this quaint New England town. The owner is a thoughtful host always ready to help with any needs. Room and bath were immaculate and well stocked. Would highly recommend.
