Plum Island house description


This home has everything to make your Plum Island vacation the experience you want!

The house was completely renovated in 2012 with all modern amenities, comfortable furniture and tasteful decorations. Inside the home you will find a bright and sunny 3 season Sunporch, perfect for relaxing with your morning coffee or a good book. The first floor is an open concept living area with a living room, kitchen and dining area, and a bathroom with a custom tiled, walk-in shower. You will find wood floors, recessed lighting, granite counters, stainless appliances, a breakfast bar and full size washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped with all your cooking needs, including a lobster pot! There is also wireless Internet, a flat screen tv, and plenty of board games in case of a rainy day.

The second floor has 4 bedrooms and a full bath. All bedrooms are sunny and roomy with wood floors and large closets with plenty of space to unpack and settle in. The first bedroom has a queen memory foam mattress. The second bedroom has a full bed. The third has two twin beds. And the fourth bedroom has a daybed with a pop-up trundle underneath that can be used as either two more singles, or a queen if they are put together. This room can also be used as a sitting room and has views of the basin. The bathroom is large and has a bathtub with shower and granite counter on the sink. All bed linens and towels are provided. The house also has 2 zone central heating and cooling .

Outside the house, you will find 3 decks, one on the front and 2 on the back. The front deck is perfect for relaxing in the sun. The back decks both have water views of the basin. The lower deck is equipped with a gas grill and table for outdoor dining. The upper deck is perfect for watching birds on the basin, the sunset, or star gazing at night. There is also a private outdoor shower with hot and cold water.

You will have many options when venturing away from the house. The beach is a short 4 minute walk away. This beach, though public, is far enough away from any public parking that it is never crowded and feels quite private. The life-guard beach is about a ten minute walk away, or a 2 minute drive. The basin access is also minutes away and offers options for swimming, kayaking and fishing. The Parker Wildlife Reservation is less than a mile away and offers year-round hiking and birdwatching. Or, take a bike ride to the tip of the island and see the lighthouse. Add Mad Martha's Cafe, a block away, for breakfast or lunch, the Plum Island Grille for dinner, and a convenience store and liquor store in between, and you will never need to leave the island.

But, if you do choose to go off island, downtown Newburyport is only a ten minute drive away. Newburyport is a classic New England fishing village with quaint, narrow, cobblestone streets offering many dining and shopping options. From here, you also have the choice of many different water excursions. Newburyport has many events throughout the year, so be sure to check the city's website to see what may be happening while you are there.

In about one hour, you can get to downtown Boston either by car or commuter rail. Or, you could get to any number of other coastal villages like Gloucester. Rockport, Portsmith, York, Ogunquit or Kennebunkport. An hour and a half will get you to the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

                    We rented this property for 12 days in September and enjoyed every minute. It is well appointed, centrally located and allowed us to have many enjoyable gatherings with family and friends. Close to the beach and all plum island has to offer. I highly recommend it and am hoping to make it an annual trip.

                    I stayed at this property for a girls weekend in May and loved every minute of it! The house is spacious, clean, and extremely well stocked- we did not want for anything during our stay. The open concept of the downstairs made it easy for our group of 8 to relax and enjoy meals together. In addition, all of the bedrooms were large enough to spread out and not feel as if we were on top of one another. The bathrooms are obviously newly renovated and, having 8 people there, the fact that we had 2 full bathrooms was key. I cannot say enough good things about our stay and would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a stay on Plum Island. While our weekend was a little chilly, we did take the brief (4 minute) walk to the beach were impressed by the beauty of the natural surroundings. Arlene was so easy to work with and was prompt with her response whenever I emailed her with questions. Thanks Arlene for a great stay!

                    Just got back from a 2 week stay at this house and it was very hard to leave! We contacted a lot of people before deciding on this house and Arlene was one of the most pleasant to work with. She was always prompt in her replies and has been extremely understanding and accomadating to any questions we had. The house was truly amazing, a very well maintained and comfortable property (which made the not so nice non beach days easier to handle). The neighborhood was nice and quiet with very friendly neighbors. Walk to beach was short, which was nice when the little ones were tired on the way back. We also enjoyed the beach by the house so much we didn't make any trips to Sandy Point like we typically do. Enjoyed the short walk to Mad Martha's for breakfast as well. I would highly recomend this property and owner. We enjoyed our visit so much we are already looking forward to going back next year!

                    We stayed at this lovely, newly built gem of a home this past weekend. We found everything we needed to cook a wonderful dinner in the gourmet kitchen that was fully equipped. The beds were very comfortable with high quality linens. All the furnishings and decor were just perfect! All new and designer quality.The bathrooms were fully stocked with plenty of towels, even shampoo and soap. The short walk to the beach was so easy. The wonderful town of Newburyport with all the restaurants, shops, galleries and history is just a quick drive from the house. We ate at the "Grog" and also Ten Center Street which were both outstanding. Loved the shopping! The local fish market on Plum Island "Bob's" was a great place to pick up lunch and also fresh fish for grilling. We will return again! Thank you Arlene & Richard for sharing your beach home with us. Great place to create lasting memories with family and friends. Jim & Jeanette, Stoneham, Massachusetts

                    I just recently returned from the perfect weekend stay at this lovely Plum Island home. Not only was it newly remodeled, but it was tastefully decorated with a warm beachy feel. The kitchen was filled with high end appliances, fully equipped with any item needed, and was perfect for entertaining. Additionally, both the TV room and dining room were cozy for our group. There were a bunch of games to play that we enjoyed (maybe a little TOO much!) All 6 of us slept comfortably in each of the 4 different bedrooms on the upper level. We walked to breakfast at Mad Martha's, which was very delicious (and BYOB as well!) Then, we spent the rest of the day in Newburyport walking around the shops, taking in the views, and enjoying the great weather we were so lucky to have! For dinner we made reservations at the Black Cow, which was also delicious! I can't say enough good things about our girls weekend in Plum Island! The entire space was very clean and inviting. I would certainly recommend this location for a cozy winter weekend and would LOVE to come back in the summer! Many thanks :)

                    I spent a long weekend at this beach house and had a fantastic time. It had all the comforts of home and then some. Everything you could think of Arlene thought of first. The kitchen had anything you could possibly need to make a gourmet meal. The kitchen was nicely done with granite countertops, etc. There were multiple decks and places to sit and enjoy the views. There were 2 beautiful indoor bathrooms with showers and a 3rd outdoor shower, which my friend used every day. The best part of our stay was the beautiful screened in front porch. This area was complete with couch, comfy chairs and so much character. We sat there in the mornings chatting over coffee and in the evenings over wine. The location is great, walking distance to the beach. Can't wait to go back for another visit.

                    This was my 1st trip to Plum Island and a friend told me about this particular property. It was absolutely fabulous. It has out surpassed any vacation rental I have done in the past. While there are local restaurants nearby, the kitchen is really a gourmet kitchen and I found that we used it and the outdoor grill to create some phenomenal meals. (Tip: make sure you visit and shop for great local produce and meats at Tendercrops). So meals became a real "family and friends" entertaining experience. The beach is a 2 minute walk. The property comfortably sleeps 8. Lots of closet space, beautiful bathrooms (2) and an outdoor shower! where you can peak out and see the water while you wash off the stresses of the day. Owners are great and easy to deal with. I'll be back!

                    For 4 days, this was our home base for 3 girlfriends who hadn't seen each other in 7 years. This home was perfect! This was truly a home away from home for us. We spent many hours in the 3 season front porch talking and catching up while hearing the sound of the ocean a block away. We appreciated the amenities in the home, especially the kitchen and all the decorations. A 5 minute drive to downtown Newburyport to many charming specialty shops and places to stop for food or drinks. Being surrounded by both the basin and the ocean was incredible and I would highly recommend this home to everyone and definitely have plans to stay here again. Truly a wonderful place for us 3 to reconnect again. Thank you Arlene.

                    I recently stayed at this newly renovated Plum Island beach house and was thrilled with my experience. Not only was it less than a five minute walk to a beautiful private beach, but it had all the comforts of home you want while on vacation. The home was immaculate and had everything I needed to relax as if the home was mine. One of the bonuses that we enjoyed was being able to use the grill and cook in as we wished, mostly because all the cooking utensils were provided for anything you may wish to cook. If you do want recommendations for restaurants in the Newburyport area a binder was provided with highly rated spots. The upstairs deck was one of my favorite spots to read and take in the views of the water. Lastly, the outdoor shower cannot be missed! It is perfect for after getting sandy at the beach all day to be in a spacious outdoor shower with the sun shining on you! It was very hard to leave this home after such a wonderful stay! We will definitely be making a tradition of this home and go every year :-)

                    My husband, my 5 years old daughter and I stayed at the cottage for a little bit more then a week. We found the house very well equipped and comfortable. The quality of the mattresses is excellent witch is not always the case in beach rentals. We enjoyed the outside shower after long afternoons at the beach. The location is ideal. Four minutes walk to the beach, near the stores on PI and the street is quiet. We would definitely go back.
