Property Details

Updated: Oct 5, 2016
House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, 8 Sleeps

Charming eight room waterfront home with spectacular views of Hingham Harbor and World's End.

Welcoming, charming and immaculate

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fantastic week at "The Point", a gracious older two story home in a quiet, family neighborhood near Nantasket Beach. The owner, Mary Jo, was extremely welcoming and hospitable, and made us feel right at home. The home is charmingly decorated and was incredibly clean. The front of the house looks out over the Hingham Bay area, and has a beautiful closed in porch set up with a couple of seating areas as well as a dining table and a swing. We had a number of great meals and many conversations in this room while enjoying a lovely ocean breeze and a wonderful view. There was also a large dining room and living room, along with nicely sized bedrooms. The piano in the dining room was an extra unexpected bonus! The Point is decorated throughout with all sorts of interesting knick knacks and family items, which gives this home wonderful personality and charm. The kitchen was equipped with everything we could possibly need, and we also made good use of the outdoor gas barbecue. Folding beach chairs and a beach umbrella were available to take with us to the public beach, which was about a 5 minute drive. We tried out a couple of the local restaurants, and particularly enjoyed the chowder at Schooner's. We truly enjoyed every minute of our stay, and would definitely love to stay again! Thank you, Mary Jo and family, for opening your home to us!

Fabulous older home with comfortable family feel

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year renting a home in Hull and we will likely go back again. If available, we would love to rent this home again. We all enjoyed renting a place that felt like it had history and a story to tell. We were glad that the owners did not strip the home of all signs of their family as other lessors do.

The house is still greatly convenient to the sandy Nantasket beach as well as its own rocky beach and the ferry transport into Boston. Prospective renters should check out the tide chart before going to make sure they plan their days to access the beach in front of the house at sunset at low tide. The kids loved the Paragon carousel and the view from Fort Revere. There is an awesome bakery on the main street in Hull. The cable channels were much better than last year's rental which made the kids happy. I personally loved that I wasn't expected to wash the sheets as we were last year. It would be impossible to get that done before starting a 10 hr drive home. The beds were great. The only things I would recommend would be adding a big stock pot to cook fresh mussels from the beach and some plastic cups for the kids. The owners have such nice things and kids aren't as careful as they could be. We would definitely recommend the house and will hopefully be back ourselves.

Special, lovely home exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

We were new to Hull. We wanted to rent a house because we were participating in the Swim Across America Cancer Fund Raising event at Nantasket Beach. This is a large house, with unbelievable views of the water from all rooms. We lived on the enclosed porch. The beds were new and very comfy. The landlords were awesome. The house was on the point;very quiet and private but just a short 1 mile walk to the beach. The beach is amazing. Lovely sand, great parking, fun town. We will return next year.
