Property description

Plum Island is a wonderful place to relax and get away from the rest of the world. The house is two stories high with a wrap-around deck on the 2nd floor, a fenced-in garden/BBQ area in the back, and space to park 3 cars in the front. The house is between The Basin (literally just a few steps away) and the Atlantic Ocean (2 short blocks). You can kayak in The Basin or enjoy the power of the waves on the sandy Atlantic Ocean beach. The Parker River National Wildlife Refuge is a short bicycle ride away. A little longer bicycle ride (or a short drive in the car) gets you to quaint Newburyport, with its antique shops, restaurants, stores, and weekend activities. Rent is $1,450 per month, including heat and utilities. The house is available from November 1, 2015, to April 30, 2016 (with a possible extension to May 15). A single rental for the entire off-season period is preferred.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I recently retired as an administrator at a small college and have lived in the Boston area for many years. I've always considered myself a lover of the ocean and sea. I enjoy kayaking, swimming, sunsets, and barefoot walks on the beach.

Why the Owner Chose Plum Island:
I originally bought this house to live in, and I lived there year-round. I found Plum Island to be magical and a great place for rejuvenation. The ocean is literally only five minutes away, and there is a wonderful 45-minute walk you can take at low tide from The Basin adjacent to the house around the tip of Plum Island and back along the Atlantic Ocean shore. You can't help but be affected by the beauty of the island and the power of the ocean. Even though Plum Island is less than an hour from Boston, the beaches are not crowded even in high season, and you can feel relaxed and reflective while in the presence of natural beauty.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Plum Island is a paradise for those who love the beach and boating. Entry points to the The Basin for kayaking, sailing, and canoeing are steps away from the house. Beach activities abound on the Atlantic Ocean side. Or you can just relax on the balcony, sipping wine and watching breath-taking sunsets or lounging in the hammock. There are also many other activities nearby. Newburyport is less than ten minutes away by car. It is an old whaling town with restaurants, speciality shops, a playhouse, and a genuine New England quaintness. At the other end of Plum Island from the house is the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. I have bicycled there many times. There are numerous walking paths for hiking. The Refuge is known nationally as a major New England center for its diverse bird population and the many people who come there for bird watching and other wildlife observation.
