About Colleen

Growing up in Priscilla Beach (PB) was an amazing experience! Building sandcastles with my grandparents, taking a dip in crystal clear water on a hot day, spending time with our extended beach family and developing a passion for coastal landscapes. PB is truly an oasis of salty breezes, sandy feet and family. We enjoy meeting new people and sharing our family's love for this home and location. We love living in PB!

Colleen purchased this house in 1981

Why Colleen chose South Shore Massachusetts

Proximity & Sandy Beach! The house is located a short walk to the beach in a private neighborhood that embraces everyone as family! An 8 minute drive to downtown Plymouth and Plymouth Harbor. A 20 minute ferry ride to Provincetown ( which you can see from the beach on most days ) and a quick trip to the Sagamore Bridge. Located ~45- 50 minutes to Boston. Miles of sandy beach at low tide, boating access and designated swim areas for the kids!

What makes this house unique

Relaxing Ocean Breezes, Activities at the Priscilla Beach Clubhouse ( Yoga, rainy day kids activities and Basketball courts), Sense of Place and community when you spend any time in Priscilla Beach. So close to so much yet peaceful and tranquil. The Cape without the Traffic!

We loved our stay at this beach house! It is well maintained and spacious for large groups.

  • 5 of 5

The house is perfectly located to enjoy short walks to the beach and day trips to Boston. We enjoyed lazy days lounging at the beach with the beach chairs provided to us and evening strolls to watch the sunset. Our outing to Plymouth provided us with opportunities to catch up on history and do some antique shopping. We experienced more history lessons in Boston and topped our day off with a Red Sox game. My favorite part of the trip was driving to Orleans in Cape Cod for a long bike ride. The paved bike trail ends at the beach and lighthouse. Each evening we would go to Rose and Vicki's for a tasty treat. As far as for meals, we used the grill once, but we wanted to dine in the local restaurants which proved to be very affordable. We spent many hours together in the house just enjoying family. Even though the living area was very large, we preferred the smaller den area where a group could talk and watch tv while the remainder played games at the table. We would open the windows and the sliding glass door to welcome the breezes. Since we are from Texas and are used to hot temperatures, we were pleasantly surprised to find that no air conditioning was needed here. Each bedroom was supplied with box fans that we used at night and sometimes during the day. The eight of us had a great time together, and I would be quick to say that it was the best vacation we've had together if our other son and his wife could have come. I recommend this house to anyone that loves beaches and occasional outings to the city. If you choose this house you will have the best of both worlds!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Colleen's home for a family wedding in Plymouth. Everything was perfect! The home was well maintained, very open, and had everything we needed! There were 7 of us and 2 dogs. There was plenty of space for everyone to sleep and hang out and the dogs LOVED the neighborhood and the walks on the beach.

Judy met us when we arrived and showed us around the house and told us about the different places to eat in the area. She was extremely helpful and very friendly! Colleen was readily available and always answered questions whenever we had them. It was nice to be staying in a house that had everything we could possibly need! The neighborhood was adorable and everyone we passed was very friendly. It was conveniently located to the country club and not too far from downtown.

We went out for breakfast at the Blueberry Muffin in Plymouth. It was fantastic! The portions were huge and everything was delicious! If you're in the area, it is definitely a place to try!

Needless to say, our stay here was incredible! If only we were able to stay a little longer.. but we had to come back to reality! We would absolutely recommend staying here if you're in the area. This place is perfect! We will definitely be reaching out to Colleen when we come back to the area!

Long Relaxing Walks on the Beach

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house for its size, price and proximity to the beach. We were not disappointed this home was well maintained, clean and the beds were very comfortable. Bathrooms were updated and accessible for us one upstairs and one full down. The kitchen had numerous utensils/ accessories. You could easily enjoy one level living with this home and avoid any stairs all together. Heat worked well. Plenty of hot water as others have commented and having laundry was a plus. Backyard provides privacy from neighbors and plenty of space. Home is much larger in person and owners are wonderful people! Thank you!

Recommendations: Highly recommend this property. Location is easy on to main routes, quiet as well as quick to Boston to the North and Provincetown to the South. We encountered no traffic to this location and enjoyed our vacation from the start.

Exactly what we were hoping for in Beach side OASIS and then some!

  • 5 of 5

This home's layout was optimal for privacy and comfort with our large group. Everyone had quiet space as well as it was an open flow from the kitchen , dinning and living space for playing cards and preparing meals together. Short walk to a gorgeous beach that allows leashed dogs year round not normally the case on the Cape. Location is ideal for accessing Boston and Cape/ Islands attractions. Very little traffic. Customer service and interactions with the homeowner were always pleasant, quick and geared toward renter enjoyment. Communication is very important for me to feel at ease with a rental and Colleen is great at it.

Property is well maintained through out. Very clean and it is great to have a large washer/ dryer at your disposal in the property. Enjoyed the cable package and fast wireless internet from all the nooks/crannies of the property. Cell phone service was also very good ( Verizon, AT&T & Sprint were represented in our group). We brought an xbox with us for our kids to watch a few movies / play a few games in between and there were no problems hooking it up on the LED tv, a time saving feature of quality. Plenty of clothing storage in dressers and the large closets. Pantry items and coffee to begin with were a godsend as we forgot to pack the COFFEE but this property saved us from a rough morning start!!

Recommend taking in the sights and attractions of downtown Plymouth a 5-10 minute car trip. Many many restaurants with varying cuisines and plenty of take-out/ delivery options as well. Kitchen worked well for us in coordinating large meals too and the property layout did not alienate the chef from the rest of the goings ons/ vacation shenanigans which is a definite plus.

We plan to return to this property for future getaways. We were here for a week and still have plenty more to see in the area. Maybe two weeks next time!! Thanks.

Lots of Space. Steps to a Great Beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed the week between Christmas and New Years. The location was just down the road from our family so the location was ideal.

If there's one word to describe the house it is: spacious. There is lots of room to spread out, have one group watching TV in one room, another relaxing and talking in another, and a third in the giant basement playing games around the table. If the weather is nice, there's room in the backyard and on the raised deck. With four bedrooms/sleeping areas, there's lots of quiet places too escape, too. You would never guess how much space was tucked inside when looking at the house from the road.

The linens and towels were quite nice. Each bedroom was very comfortable. The kitchen was in great shape for those few times we ate in.

This house is a great home base for any travel to Plymouth, the Cape and the far South Shore. Route 3 and 3A are just minutes away.

If our travels take us back to Priscilla Beach, we would hope to stay here again.

Priscilla Beach & Cape Cod Beach House. Rent this one!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented numerous houses in this area before and never known till now about the quiet and beautiful Priscilla Beach neighborhood. This beach house has a complete entertaining kitchen with all the utensils, dishes and prep materials you need for a large group. Yet it has intimate spaces for cozy family gatherings based on preferences. There were 10 of us including my 72yo parents who all felt they had private comfortable space to enjoy and relax. We stayed here for over 2 months for work but brought along family to enjoy a new place. We did not want to leave and the neighbors are so sweet! The weather was AMAZING literally the ENTIRE TIME!!

The pictures do not convey the true beauty and size of this home and the owners love for this location. Higher end furnishings/ bedding was fantastic, the main living area being all on one floor was key for our group and having a washer and dryer in the house made it a true vacation ( even though we were in the area for work haha.). The property owners are very responsive, made property intros a breeze, detailed instructions for everything provided ( love it!!), outlined area amenities and had us stocked up with coupons(even more amazing). We look forward to staying here again very very soon and would recommend to all our family/friends. Enjoyed Isaacs, lobster hut, New World Tavern, Dirty Water Distillery, KKaties Burgers (special sauce is the way to go as another reviewer pointed out!), takeout from Mama Mias and China Gourmet, Surfside smokehouse ( great food a tad pricey for the portion sizes but on the water at the Marina). We plan to try many more restaurants when we come back but the setup was so great in the kitchen at the house it made making large group meals a breeze. PS the damage deposit was returned asap. Thanks.
