Great place to stay with the fam! The house overlooks beautiful, peaceful, serene Buzzards Bay. Come try your luck fishing from the back yard/beach or schedule a fishing trip. Collect shells, find clams and oysters, and watch the Ocean as you sip your coffee. Kayak around the bay or head down the street to play Mini-Golf or eat at a family restaurant-- there are so many options for FUN while staying at this well-cared for home. There is also a large back yard for children to play.

On the first floor, there is a lovely dining room, kitchen, family room, full bathroom, and 2 bedrooms-- One bedroom has a Queen-sized bed and a bedroom that has 2-twin beds as bunk beds, which can easily be put together as a King-size bed.

Upstairs there is also a full bathroom, a King-sized bed, a Queen-sized bed, and a small bedroom with a twin bed. All bedrooms have cable access with the exception of the small twin bedroom.

We love this place so much that we have 4 homes in a row! We stay in one and rent the others out; leaving many options for you as a vacationer! Ever want to bring the family on vacation, but give the in-laws their own place to sleep? No problem! Please feel free to ask about our other properties if you are interested in renting multiple homes for the same week!

About Ralph Malin

I own and manage some apartment buildings in Somerville and Cambridge and fell in love with my Summer home & Buzzards Bay. I 'caught the bug'! I love having guests stay and am happy to provide suggestions about fishing, food, FUN, family activities of course (which there are many). I love the Bay, and, even more, I love sharing it with people.

Ralph Malin purchased this house in 2012

Why Ralph Malin chose Buzzards Bay

This property has a large yard to play, a nice stretch of beach. I raised a family on the ocean, and enjoy everything the ocean has to offer: fishing, boating, water skiing, etc!

It's a great "get-a-way" that's close to major routes and fun activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow. What an awesome vacation. Ralph the owner lives only a few doors down, and didn't mind taking me and the boys out on the boat. He showed us some great fishing spots. We had a great family reunion and cannot wait to have another vacation! Many things for kids to do too

Great family time on the water

  • 5 of 5

My wife and son and I rented this home over an extended Memorial Day weekend last year (2016) Not sure what happened to my post when I tried to review this last year.... posting problem could very well have been on my end. Being familiar with the general area over the years, I was pleasantly surprised with the exact location. Ralph was very helpful and welcoming and made sure we were all set to enjoy our time. My son and I fish, so being right on the water and having that access was priceless. The proximity to the bridges, restaurants, stores, gas, etc, makes this a great location to efficiently use vacation time too. The house was in great shape, clean and spacious, the backyard and entry porch spread things out even more and made us feel very at home. Good times for sure...

Cape Cod Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for a mini family reunion. We ranged in age from 8 months to great grand-dad at 85! It was a great place to let us adults rest and relax, but close enough to everything for the kids to go out and enjoy themselves too. We brought our Kayaks (but there were some there to borrow also). Being in the Bay it was a great place for the young kids to play on the beach and not worry about large waves. The back yard was very large, and where we spent most of our time. The house slept 10, but we had extended family visit on one or two days. It was a week full of wonderful memories.

The absolute only thing we could have asked for was more parking as it was a bit tight. (4 cars max), but Ralph (the owner) was willing to work that out with us too.

The owner and his wife live two houses down, so if you needed something, like a lobster fork, they had it for us.

Over all we had a great time, and would love to go again sometime.

It is a lovely year round home in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The landlord is a very pleasant and friendly person that makes sure his property is taken care of. We didn't call him over any issues(that were very minor) but I'm sure he would have responded and resolved any problems. These happened after only one day and we were able to fix them right away without bothering him even though he was right next door.. The property was spotless which was a big plus. We had a few mix-ups before checking in but they were resolved easily.

The negatives would be the check-in - check out. I don't mind a check in of 4:00 which means most of the day is gone but I felt the check out time of 9:00 AM meant another day gone making it really a 6 day rental. .. Most of my family had to leave the night before so we could leave the property spotless (which we did).

We didn't ask to use the kayaks that were mentioned in the listing .and didn't think the gas grill should be used. These things were not deal breakers and

did not diminish the .wonderful time spent there. This property should be at the top of the list for anyone wanting waterfront and a great location.

Wonderful place and location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent a delightful week at this property. Upon arrival we were greeted by the very wonderful host/renter and shown around the large house. It included great kitchen with high quality amenities, a separate room with washer/dryer (again, high quality), bedrooms with comfortable beds, huge flat screen TV with surround sound, plenty of air conditioning, nice bathrooms, a private, outdoor shower (one of my favorite things) and a spectacular view. Everything very clean and spotless. Walking out into the yard and sitting in the Adirondack chairs you realize that the beach is right there! At your feet! I really enjoyed swimming there.

There are numerous good restaurants, a Walmart (for all the things you forgot or didn't know you would need) and also a large grocery store with a good fish department that has lobsters, scallops, etc. (And they will boil the lobsters for you at no charge). In the opposite direction is a local seafood store with a small restaurant attached. That place had wonderful fresh oysters. All within minutes away.

This place is wonderful and so is the owner!
