JULY 23- 27, 2017 is AVAILABLE for guests. For some reason Calendar shows it is blocked.

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, bike? 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 bed, fridge, micro, toaster oven, coffee pot 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 glass melting although I draw, dabble in paint and 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 have a lot of laughs.

Marj purchased this house in 1995

Why Marj chose South of Boston

I have lived in town for 44 years. If you are looking for something I am pretty sure I can find it for you or direct you to it.

I had so much fun last summer sharing my home I thought we'd try this website too. 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. Plus where else will you find the owner supplies fresh brewed coffee for you each morning and a little nosh!

Owner's Response: Aneese and Melinda thank you so much for visiting. As I knew you would you left my home immaculate and you were so quiet! Much appreciated! I love to watch guests enjoy the things I hope I never take for granted, especially the beaches and of course Simon! Like I said whether I am here or not feel free to park in my driveway and enjoy the beach. ~til again... Marj

easy breezy ocean view

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed a truly lovely stay with Marj and Simon. They are wonderful hosts....friendly, helpful, relaxed, respectful. The living space is comfortable and clean and uncomplicated...a perfect nest for my 4 day visit.

The ocean breezes come through the window, as well as the sound of high tide lapping the rocky shore across the street. There is a lovely front porch to sit with coffee or a cocktail, and it's an easy walk to town. I would stay with Marj and Simon again in a heartbeat!

One caution....if you have a soft spot for furry friends, Simon will capture your heart and it will break a little when you say goodbye.

Soulful Place to Relax...

  • 4 of 5

We richly enjoyed our stay at "Marj Bates Studio." Marj was a gracious host and provided a very nice balance between hospitality and privacy. Staying in a cottage so close to the Atlantic Ocean surf, allowed us to be lulled to sleep each night of our stay by the splashing of the waves. :) We are so grateful she opened her home for guests through "VRBO". We took early morning walks to the lighthouse, watched the sunrise and enjoyed local restaurants. We hope to return soon. We couldn't imagine a better value for an "AirB&B" style rental.

Owner's Response: Lisa & Mike, Like I may have told you - every time I think I have just hosted the best guests in the world another couple comes along! You left the space you occupied just as you found it and the treat you left Simon was much appreciated! I love sharing my magical piece of heaven to folks that really appreciate the area. So glad you could take time to enjoy the sights and sounds. Simon keeps going back to your room looking for you! Hope to see you again! Marj
