3-bedroom Home With Ocean And Marsh Views, Large Deck, Walk To Foss Beach
About Jackie Doherty
Owners Jay Mason and Jackie Doherty purchased Shamrock House in 2015 and immediately began renovating this cute, vintage home across from Foss Beach in Rye. For decades, the couple had been searching for a seaside home they could call their own, and in Shamrock House, their dreams came true. Across from lovely Foss Beach, Shamrock House offers all the amenities of home along with the incredible gift of being neighbors with the Atlantic Ocean. Just a few miles south of bustling Portsmouth and north of the honky-tonk fun of Hampton Beach, Shamrock House offers the joys of seaside living for a great family getaway where wonderful memories are made!

Why Jackie Doherty chose Rye
LOCATION and VIEWS! Shamrock House is exactly where you want to spend your summers by the sea--across from fantastic Foss Beach! With spectacular views all day, this immaculately clean house features comfortable indoor living in cozy rooms freshly painted in calming sea tones along with opportunities to enjoy the Atlantic Coast just outside your door: When you're not at the beach, relax and enjoy ocean views from the spacious deck, or play and barbecue in the large, private backyard.
What makes this House unique
Some of our favorite things about Shamrock House: Going for an early morning bike ride up the coast to Odiorne Point or south to view the magnificent mansions with sweeping ocean views. Having coffee on the deck watching the sun rise over the Atlantic or sipping cocktails while the sun sets over the marsh. After a day at the beach, enjoying an afternoon wash in the outdoor shower bathed in sunlight, toasting marshmellows by the campfire in the private yard, and best of all--falling asleep to the sounds and smells of the sea....Paradise on Earth!

Adorable little cottage in one of the most picturesque small seaside towns in New Hampshire. Well equipped and comfortable, with everything you might need for a home away from home experience. Definitely not luxurious, with older bathroom and kitchen and no AC, but exactly what we were looking for in a cottage experience. Owners are lovely and easy to deal with, house was as described on website. Fantastic huge upper deck and expansive enclosed front porch to enjoy ocean breeze and views.
Great house, great location
Jackie was so nice to deal with and the house is so cute! It was a dream to see, hear, and smell the ocean. Couldn't ask for a better location. I don't want to say too many good things or the place will become unavailable. Dont take my week!
Great Beach Cottage!
A great beach cottage with beautiful ocean views from the 2nd floor and deck. The house is very well equipped, clean and comfortable. The deck is a wonderful place to watch the sun rise or set. Jackie and Jay are terrific owners and very responsive. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience.
Perfect Beach Vacation
This place is the bomb! You can't get any closer to Foss Beach unless you are sitting on it! So nice to be able to walk across the street and enjoy such a private, quiet spot. If you prefer Wallis Sands or Jenness it is an easy ride and everything you could want to do on the seacoast is so close by. The house is clean and spacious, can't even tell you how much I loved that outdoor shower! So cool to have those beach chairs available, too. The deck is a fabulous spot to wind down and enjoy the views and smells and constant breeze. Love the upstairs bedroom with a view, too, and hearing the waves crashing did not hurt my sleep pattern at all! I will be back next year and Jackie was a total peach to work with...can't recommend it more highly but don't take my week, please!!
What a great place! We loved the house, especially the deck with a view of the ocean. So clean, and extremely relaxing. A walk across the street to beach made it even better. A short drive up the street and we were using our kayaks, while the kids enjoyed the ocean. Thanks for a great vacation, can't wait to go back.
Great Spot, Great Owners!
Jackie and Jay may be some of the nicest owners I have ever rented from. I rented their house for the winter 2015-16. The house has an amazing view. We spent many hours staring out the windows watching the surf, moon rises, birds, tourists, dogs, beach walkers, etc. They have a large yard which is great for entertaining. We spent a ton of time up on their deck. It gets many hours a day of sun and has a great view of the sunset. The house is well equipped and has a brand new barbecue. We really enjoyed taking outdoor showers there in when it was warm enough. A very kind couple with a lovely house. Our tenant/renter relationship was so good they want to have us back this fall.
Shamrock House is located just a few miles south of Portsmouth and Odiorne Point as well as less than a mile north of Rye Harbor State Park for whale-watching and fishing excursions, and great picnics with views. The house is located on the National Scenic Coast Trail for the best biking views of the Atlantic in New England.
