Overview

About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

Do you need a Summer/Fall get-away or a birthday, anniversary, or just time alone, book my apartment. An upscale place with a view that is out of this world. One guest called my apartment "posh". There are places you can stay; but then there are places you can feel like you are living the dream. Beautiful accommodations, lots of amenities, and a view that few can beat. Located in Marshfield, MA, which was written up recently as the best place to live in Massachusetts. Lots of history here along with being a seaside town. Marshfield is located in Plymouth County along the South Shore of Massachusetts. Just had two cancellations in out my calendar and book now! :)

The apartment is brand new with new furnishings. It is on the upper floor of my home which was recently renovated. It has its own entrance. There are three large rooms. The main room (living room and kitchenette) is 12.6 X16); the bedroom has the same measurements and the bathroom is about 10 X 10. It is very spacious and has 'killer' distant ocean views. A 5-minute walk to the beach is all it takes to make your great vacation. It is a very quiet and safe area.

In addition to the beach, there is a lot to keep you busy. Plymouth is within a half hour drive where you can see The Mayflower II, Pilgrim Plantation and Plymouth Rock. You can also take many boats out of Plymouth Harbor deep sea fishing or whale watching. In the winter I am near Blue Hills Reservation, where you can do both cross-country and downhill skiing as well as hiking and other recreational activities.

The 'T' station is close by in Scituate. You can hop the train into Boston for many more historical sites and a great night life.

Heading in the opposite direction to Rhode Island you can see Belcourt Castle as well as the Newport Mansions. All of that is just scratching the surface. So much to do, so little time! You won't be bored for sure. But if that is what you desire, sitting on the beach in the sun with a good book also works. This is the perfect place for any and all of that. Enjoy! Look forward to meeting you and yours!

About Owner/Property Manager

I am very artsy person. Hence love to decorate and keep the apartment clean and neat. Was named after my French paternal grandmother and proud of it. I love coffee yogurt, ice cream and sure that comes from my French roots. I love psychology and so movies that make me think are a favorite. The same goes for reading.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this apartment in 1981

Why Owner/Property Manager chose South Shore Massachusetts

Quiet, serene and solitude come to mind. My apartment is probably one of the nicest and quietest place you will ever stay. But you will have to judge that for yourself. The views are unbelievable and that "get away" time will be well spent here. Look forward to meeting you and yours! Corinne

What makes this apartment unique

Of course, the views come to mind. Quiet and peaceful with your own private entrance. What could be better?! :)

Great views! Unbelievably comfy and cozy little apartment-like spot

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a family wedding in the area and we're thrilled to have found such a clean, comfortable, cozy spot for the weekend. The owner is lovely and left nice little touches for our stay (snacks, waters, directions and a 'things to do' packet). We highly recommend this property!

Fantastic location - exactly, or better, than anticipated.

  • 5 of 5

We had an extremely quiet and relaxing visit! The property is just as listed. The view has actually improved and was fabulous. Close enough to walk to a wonderful restaurant by the beach. Anyone spending time in Marshfield or nearby should definitely consider this location. I hope to be able to return. Very clean and comfortable. We definitely recommend!

Beautiful view, lovely suite. Could use some comfortable living room furniture.

  • 3 of 5

Beautiful suite with amazing view from this second floor suite. Everything was fresh and new and owner thought of just about everything for our needs.

Living room furniture was stiff and uncomfortable. The next door neighbor was loud and you could hear the owner speaking fairly clearly when she was on her 2nd floor telephone.

Owner's Response: Because of the configuration of the living room I am limited on furniture size. However I will keep this in mind as I browse furniture stores. Never have heard the neighbor and no one has ever mentioned that to me in the three years I have been doing this.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Our host was as lovely as the apartment. She had it stocked with coffee, snacks. The refrigerator was stocked. And the view was terrific. High on a hill overlooking the ocean. Our stay was most enjoyable.

"Marshfield by the Sea" :)

  • 5 of 5

Corinne,

Your beautiful retreat by the sea was just what we needed! The apartment was perfect, so well appointed with so many lovely amenities. A very tranquil, peaceful place. The most comfortable bed, plush towels, gorgeous views, yummy treats, (your muffins were delicious!) ~ all were fantastic and very much appreciated. We loved having our morning cup of coffee looking out over the village towards the ocean. We have stayed at many VRBO's over the years, but we cannot recall ever receiving the level of hospitality you provided us. Our time in Marshfield, Scituate (yes, I can now pronounce it correctly) and Cohasset was very special. We sure hope to return someday!!

Thank you again, Corinne for all your thoughtfulness,

Debbie and Tim ~ North Carolina

Owner's Response: Thank you so much Debbie and Tim for your lovely critique! I am so blessed when people have a wonderful experience. It truly makes it all worthwhile. And yes it does take awhile to learn how to pronounce "Scituate". You are now one of us! LOL Thanks again! Look forward to seeing you again in the future. :) Corinne
