1700 sq foot beachfront cottage with spectacular views right on Duxbury Beach. Four bedrooms, 1 full bath and 1 half bath provide plenty of space for up to 9 people. Two of the bedrooms overlook the private beach below. Spacious open floor plan downstairs opens up to a screened porch with direct ocean views.
Six miles of sandy beach are right out the front door, and the property also has a large yard that is perfect for children and an outdoor patio to enjoy evening cocktails.
This is serene stretch of beach for families to relax quietly - if you are looking for a place to host a beach party please look elsewhere.
To clarify one visitors feedback, we have three bathrooms:
1- Full bath on the second floor
1- Half bath on the first floor (new in 2017)
1- Half bath in the basement (seasonal - not heated)
The house is a 5 minute drive to restaurants and shops in Brant Rock, and a 10 minute drive to Duxbury Village, Snug Harbor, and Farfars Ice cream. Perfect for Families, No parties, and no pets.
We had a wonderful vacation during our stay. Given the pandemic we really did relax and enjoy every minute of the beach and each other! Michaels place is the perfect spot to relax and enjoy your family. The house is much larger than it appears and is perfect for families. My mother in law wants me to book it for next year already!! :) highly recommend!
Location fantastic- ocean at your front door and sound of surf lulls you to sleep! Owner has thought of everything for your convenience-linens-towels- grill -patio and chair overlooking the beach-sand toys! Creates great family memories
Really enjoyed our stay at this property. It had all of the necessary amenities (cooking, laundry, beach toys, etc.) for a relaxing stay right on Duxbury Beach. Location is fantastic - steps from the beach and a short drive to grocery store, restaurants, etc. The property owner is very responsive and was a pleasure to work with before and during our stay.
We just came back from a wonderful week and Mike's property on the ocean. We were Duxbury residents until 2019 and wanted to come Home for a week to visit our favorite seaside town. The location is perfect. We were able to ride our bikes from the house all the way down to the gated community at the Gurnet Light House. Recreation is abundant when you stay by the ocean. The house was a great seaside cottage. Perfect size for our family of 5 (full disclosure, we spent most of our time outside enjoying the beach). The furniture has all been recently updated so the pictures on the listing don't depict the recent updates. We would recommend this rental to anyone who loves all that Duxbury has to offer.
We loved falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing. The pictures don’t show the huge kitchen/dining area which made meal prep and social time a pleasure. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need to cook. I’m super picky so I brought my own knives and would bring my own sauté pan next time, but you can definitely get by without those. It was winter, so we weren’t able to take advantage of the beach, but this would be a top candidate for a return trip this August.
The property was exactly as advertised. Michael was very quick to respond to questions. The sound of the ocean was wonderful to fall asleep to.
I am familiar with the area and surroundings so that played a roll in choosing. The beachfront was great! Quiet and enjoyable. However the cottage could benefit from a deep clean and some sprucing up! Some new kitchen pans are much needed!
The house is fantastic!
My family and I had an incredible time! The location was awesome. We loved having the beach right there, with a beautiful grassy area to play games. The kids went back adn forth to the beach all day. Love the jetty and surrounding area. The sunrise and sunsets were beautiful. Couldn't be happier with our stay!
This house still has the feel of a vacation cottage but with the extra touches that make it more like a home. Having the sheets and towels provided is a huge help. As is having a washer/dryer. Being right on the beach is great. Love having the lawn between the house and the beach - instead of just a deck or more sand. This was my third year here and am definitely planning to come back again.
We had a wonderful week, property is in a prime location on the wall that always has beach, even at high tide.
Location, Location , Location
This is a perfect location for families looking for a week at the beach without the hassle of traveling to the beach. Very much a beach cottage, but the draw for us was the location. Very nice of the owners to supply beach chairs and towels. Also nice to have the linens on the bed upon arrival. The use of the grill was fabulous as well. The neighbors to the right are not all that nice. A ball went into their yard and they were very nasty when we went to retrieve it, so beware. Nighttime was dream time being lulled to sleep by the ocean waves. We had a wonderful time! Perfect place to fly kites at night or during high tide!!
This place was perfect. We rented over the long weekend for 4 adults and 4 kids, aged 4 and under. We had everything that we needed for the visit, it was great not to need to bring linens with all the extra stuff you have to pack for the kids. Upon arrival, you could tell the place was extremely clean, and was great that they had provided starter paper towels, etc. Bedrooms were all a good size and well kept. We didn’t spend much time inside however because the outside is where it’s at! The lawn to the sea wall was perfect for the young kids—while still short enough to climb it provided enough of an obstacle to keep them in. We spent as much time up on the grass as on the beach, which is perfect at low tide for the family. Michael was an excellent host, super responsive to the few last minute questions we had even during our stay. I’d come back here in a heartbeat!
Relaxing and perfect venue for us to nest for the weekend and visit with friends and family.
Michael’s house was beautiful and right on the beach! It had a homey atmosphere that we loved. I would highly recommend his home!
It was a really great place to stay. Neat and simple! Great space for our family snd relax and enjoy the beach!
Mike, Thank you so much for letting us use your home. We had an amazing time. Didn't want to leave. Lol.... Thank you again, Kim
I just enjoyed the house and property so much right on the ocean, the views are beautiful, waking up to the sunrise, in between the ocean and Marsh, the house itself is just adorable 4 bdrm spacious, love the feeling of the wood makes it more cozy, love the open concept of the main floor, all in all a great experience, thanks so much Mike and Margarite!!!!
Wonderful vacation! House is great and location is even better! We will be back again next year. Thank you.
Great place right on the water. Relaxing area with private beach. Rooms are comfortable. Love that towels and sheets are included - so much less to pack. Stove works well as does dishwasher and washer/dryer. Large fridge. Owner is very easy to work with. Quick to respond to questions or inquiries.
The House was just perfect for our family’s week long stay. Kids loved being able to run down to the beach at 8am and leave all their beach toys there until dinner. Michael was super responsive and great to work with! My family is already booked for 2019!
This is our second time renting- had a wonderful week!
Visited with my daughter and 3 grand children... everyone had a wonderful time ! We rented last year and loved it so much we rented again this year !
We really enjoyed our stay. The house was exactly as pictured and described. Very comfortable and in a great location. The beach was right outside our door, and we enjoyed every second by the water. The owner was very responsive and did his best to accommodate our check-in request. We are looking forward to our next stay in this house. My only suggestion would be the addition of a firepit.
The House was wonderful!!! Fit right into the New England style I was expecting. The ocean views are amazing and the waves are like heaven to fall asleep to at night. The Duxbury area is breathtaking and filled with historical places and beautiful scenery. 10/10
Despite the cold weather and constant drizzle, the house was pleasant and toasty warm. Everything was clean and comfortable for our stay....everything was well stocked...all we had to bring were our clothes and some food items. Love the area and will return someday soon. I highly recommend this location...and especially this house. Great communication with owners makes it a plus. Thank you for sharing your home!
We came to see my son graduate from college. The weather was still too cold to enjoy the ocean but the house and views were marvelous!!! Michael was extremely nice and very helpful with all our needs. I would recommend this property to everyone. I hope someday we can return for another visit.
The house was perfect for our family. There was plenty of space so we weren’t on top of each other and the beach was beautiful! We were there early in the season so the yard wasn’t ready for use but the beach was perfect. We did have to buy toilet paper as what was left for us was not enough for a long weekend with a group of nine. We also couldn’t find any additional garbage bags which would have been helpful- we ended up leaving the garbages without bags when we left. The house interior is simple but charming and the kids played an intense game of monopoly during a rainy afternoon. The location was beautiful.
Although it was a rainy, chilly week, we had everything we needed. It was super cozy with a great view. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Our family was at the beach home in December for the Christmas holidays. It was cold outside, but the home stayed warm! Mike Sheehan, the owner,, was promptly responsive to any inquiries. We would highly recommend this home as a fine all season place to stay in the Duxbury- Marshfield area.
All wood interior made it cozy, views of the water are amazing for sun rises and sunsets, minimal furniture/rugs/no carpet which made it very easy for our family to keep clean! Kitchen wasn't super updated but was perfectly adequate plus had all the kitchen needs for cooking / eating meals.
The house needs some TLC.
The pictures do not do this place justice! I saw three of the most spectacular sunrises and the glow at night walking along the beach is just surreal. The house has all the essentials and plenty of room for everyone. The sun room was probably my favorite though as I had to do work and I got to sit there watching the waves come. I would highly recommend to anyone visiting the South Shore.
Just rented this house for the weekend and it was better than advertised. The pictures do not do it justice! The house itself, while maintaining a cottage look, had a nice open feel. However, the real highlight of this property was the yard! Even in the last week of summer, the grass was thick and green. It was also large in size and perfectly flat which was great for yard games. Overall, I was more than pleased with my stay and would definitely recommend this house in the future!
Awesome house; wonderful front grassy lawn and beautiful beach! Great time again this year. Thank you.
The house is a low maintenance, four bedroom home on a private stretch of Duxbury Beach. Wonderful grassy yard to sit in and enjoy the ocean view. Can't be beat.
We had a wonderful time with our family. The house was great and loved being right on the beach. We also loved the beautiful yard and swing. Loved making memories with our grandchildren. We were lucky to have great weather too!
House and location was fabulous! Everything I had hoped it would be. Our kids and grandkids had a great time searching for sea life in the tide pools. Can't wait to go back next year!
This location is perfect ! Directly on Duxbury beach.. very private and the morning sunrise is spectacular... the house was equipped with all you need to just sit back and relax... Booked next year already !! Can't wait... more fun with family and friends. Thank you, Mike
Nice house, beautiful location, only one bathroom
This house is great! Directly on the beach but with a front lawn for the kids and dogs to play. Great porch, big living area, huge kitchen, four bedrooms; plenty of space! Can't wait to go back! Thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed our week on the beach in Duxbury! The house was perfect for adults and young kids with direct access to the beach that can't be beat. The property is clean, well maintained and the owners are friendly and responsive. We would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing beach vacation. We hope to be back next year!
Fantastic rental for our family. Home was in perfect shape. Landlord provided us with anything we needed. Location with our backyard right up to the beach could not have been better. Look forward to renting this property next year !
Our stay on Duxbury Beach was wonderful. The house is lovely, comfortable and well-equipped. We spent most of our time sitting at the table that overlooks the beach, but there is a wonderful porch to lounge on also. We set up our umbrella on the beach in the morning and the kids played all day. For meals, just come up the stairs! The beach is wonderful at low tide with many tide pools to explore, and a beautiful sunrise each day. The owner is friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. I highly recommend this home and can't wait to come back. We all wanted to move in!
