Plum Island house description

This great waterfront Plum Island home is light, airy, and cozy - perfect for a family with children, reunion with friends, or romantic getaway. Unobstructed views of Plum Island Sound and the Merrimack River are spectacular any time of day. Open plan home with seaside charm and all modern conveniences, spacious private bedrooms. Expansive deck perfect for lounging or entertaining. Plum Island Sound ('the Basin') is the backdrop to the large back yard. Your own sandy beach and 'mud mooring' for your small boat lies at the edge of the yard. Also just a few minutes' walk to the ocean. This is a perfect location for a worry-free beach vacation (plus fishing, kayaking and more) with plenty of alternative activities in close reach for adults and children alike (Newburyport shops and galleries, theater and movies, range of great restaurants...). If you bring enough food, you might not leave all week!

Wishing you a wonderful Plum Island vacation! Thank you for taking an interest in my home on Plum Island. I hope the photos and descriptions here give you a good feel for the beauty of this location, the amenities available and the special vacation you could have here, but please call or email with any questions.

This is a large contemporary home; light, clean and comfortable beach side atmosphere so you can unwind and get away from it all. Waterfront location affords breathtaking views throughout the day. Ocean breezes as you sleep. You won't want to leave.

Fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with cable TV, wireless Internet, bath/shower, three bedrooms (one queen, two full) plus queen sleep sofa in living room. You will notice that this is not a typical rental property but a loved home with attention to details and conveniences. I am confident you will have a very special vacation here.

Huge deck with dining table and gas grill. Hammock perfectly positioned to catch the breeze and watch those great Plum Island sunsets in the backyard. A smaller balcony off the 2nd floor is perfect for morning coffee or sunset margarita...

The large back yard that fronts the water is divided in two parts: a flat grassy fenced in area and a natural beach grass-and-sandy area gently sloping to the tidal basin. The wooden path ends at the water. You can set up your beach chair or keep your kayak or canoe here in the backyard to pull in at your whim. Bring your fishing gear, Plum Island is famous for striper fishing.

The rental comes with an access pass to the Parker River Nature Refuge.

Easy access to Newburyport shops and summer fairs, less than an hour from Boston.

This is a non-smoking home.

          Plum Island is a very special place. In addition to the quaint homes and cottages on the island, there is one of the best (and quietest) beaches in New England, over seven miles of pristine sandy beach and a large Wildlife Refuge and Bird Sanctuary, proximity to Newburyport, Ipswich, Essex, Rockport and other old New England towns, and some of the best sunsets you'll find. Opt for Plum Island over the crowds and traffic of Cape Cod and the Islands, you'll never go back!
