Plum Island house description

The panoramic views of Plum Island, the ocean, and the sunsets are breathtaking from the mahogany roof-top deck on this delightful 3 bedroom beach house. Located on a quiet side street on the southern portion of Plum Island, it is a short 2 minute walk to the beach. The sunny first floor is open concept living, dining and kitchen areas; one bedroom (queen bed); and a full bathroom. A French door leads down to the cozy, finished basement where the second bedroom (2 twin beds) and third sleeping area (queen bed with closet) are located. Additional features include a five foot high completely fenced-in back yard (well-behaved pets considered with owner's prior permission), many decks (front, back, top), off-street parking for four cars, laundry facilities, 50' LCD HDTV, Bose surround sound, Blu-ray DVD player, wireless internet service, and an outside hot/cold shower. This house is turn key - just bring food & beverages! There is no smoking permitted on the premises.

Plum Island is a wonderful vacation spot for couples and families! The 9 mile stretch of beach is one of the most beautiful in the country. On Plum Island itself, there are fishing, harbor, and whale watching expeditions (northern portion of island); the Parker River Wildlife Refuge for bird watching (southern portion of island); the Plum Island Grill (dinner); Beach Coma (casual lunch/dinner); Mad Martha's Beach Cafe (breakfast/lunch); and a convenience and package store. The Plum Island Airport, on the causeway leading to the Island, provides aerial plane tours.

Newburyport is 3.5 miles away, where there are quaint shops, art galleries, outdoor concerts, live theater, many restaurants, ample activities and special summer events. Great day trips include Boston, Gloucester, Rockport or historic Portsmouth, NH. There's something for everyone!

                  Owner info

                  About the owner: We enjoy walking our two dogs on the beach and all around the small streets of the island. We love the proximity of the house to the Parker River Wildlife Refuge and to Newburyport for shopping, dining, and other activities. We enjoy cooking, so having Tendercrop Farm just down the road provides us with a great variety of gourmet meats and produce. In town we love the Sunday Farmer’s market at the Tannery; it’s a great place to pick up dinner and peruse the local bookstore and shops. Best of all when we don’t feel like cooking we can walk to the Plum Island Grille, Mad Martha’s or the Beach Coma.

                  Why the Owner Chose Plum Island:
                  After renting this house for two winters we fell in love with it and Plum Island. In fact, we liked it so much here that we bought the house. Now we’ve made this place our home for the winters. In the summer we retreat to our lake house so we really have the best of both worlds.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  The most distinct feature about the beach house is the roof-top deck with its breath-taking views of the island. Additionally, the house is located on a quiet side street (open at both ends), so there is very little traffic/noise and the yard is completely fenced-in which is ideal for families with small children or pets. It's a short two minute walk to the closest beach path where the beach is rarely crowded.
