  • Great Place!

    "This place was perfect for us this past weekend. We needed someplace to stay that was affordable and also allowed our mini aussie :) The house was very clean, was accurately displayed in the pictures on the listing and was the perfect amount of space for us. The owner was great to communicate with before we arrived as well- she sent us multiple ideas of places to check out which we did ( Newburyport, TenderCrop)and had a great time! Plum Island is beautiful in October and was the perfect getaway for us!"

  • The beach and the ocean are the yard!

    "This was our second year staying here. The location is wonderful and the beach is clean and sandy. There is a large, comfortable deck with a well-kept grill and the entire deck overlooks the beach and the ocean. The units are very clean and comfortable and the owner goes to exceptional lengths to ensure guests comfort. The layout of the house is great, with a large, well-equiped, clean (the appliances are new/newer) kitchen, with a sliding glass door opening to the deck. The bedrooms are very comfortable and clean and there's a full bath with a tub and shower. This section of the beach is not congested and very family friendly. Although there are two units, one upstairs (where we stayed), and one downstairs, we never felt like we were sharing a house. There is a rare feeling of privacy which is hard to come by. At night, there are fireworks on the beach and you can see the firework disiplays in Hampton Beach which is only a five minute drive. Oh, yes, although we don't fish, many days folks were pulling in very large fish just by fishing from the shore. We have been looking for the perfect vacation spot for years and we have found it. We are planning on staying two weeks next year."

  • What a BEAUTIFUL HISTORIC home!

    "We stayed at this BEAUTIFUL historic home for a lovely weekend in November! The house is such a wonderful place and it is within walking distance of everything that is Salem! You are not going to find a better rental in the area especially for the price! I can't wait until our next stay at the house! The owner Cole was SO helpful with everything including instructions on the house as well as things to do in the area! I am SO glad we chose this destination! Top ratings in our book! :)"

  • Lovely place!

    "(English version below) Wir haben im Juli 2014 zu zweit eine tolle Woche in Newbury und Umgebung verbracht. Die im Untergeschoss befindliche Ferienwohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht und brauchen könnte, z.B. auch mit einer charmanten VHS-Sammlung. :-) Die Einrichtung, besonders im Schlafzimmer, ist liebevoll und gemütlich und das Bad sehr geräumig. Waschmaschine und Trockner standen auch zur Verfügung. Zum Haus gehört ein wunderschöner, ruhiger Garten mit vielen Sitzgelegenheiten. Den kleinen Pool und Grill durften wir auch mitbenutzen. Die Eigentümer sind sehr sympathisch, unglaublich hilfsbreit und haben gute Tipps auf Lager, z.B. für das Frühstück (Stephanie's Village Pancake House in Rowley!) Man ist mit dem Auto (Parkplatz vor dem Haus) schnell in Newburyport, wo es u.a. eine Menge Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt. Wer frisches Obst und Gemüse vom Bauern möchte, braucht nur 1 Minute mit dem Auto zur Tender Crop Farm fahren. Ansonsten einfach Michael oder Cindy fragen. Kleiner Tipp: Wer empfindliche Ohren bzw. einen leichten Schlaf hat, sollte trotzdem Ohropax einpacken, da man aufgrund der amerikanischen Bauweise (Holz) ein paar Geräusche aus dem oberen Stockwerk hören kann. Danke an Michael und Cindy für alles! We went for a week in July 2014 and spent a wonderful time in Newbury and around. The apartment in the basement offers anything you need or could need, e.g. a charming collection of films on VHS. :-) You can see that a lot of love for detail went into the furnishing. The bathroom is very big and a washing machine and a dryer are available there, too. The beautiful and quiet garden offers plenty of seating and you may even use the little pool or the BBQ. Michael and Cindy are very nice and incredibly helpful landlords and can offer great tips (Go to Stephanie's Village Pancake House in Rowley for breakfast!). Don’t be afraid to ask them. It’s only 5 minutes to Newburyport (for any shopping) and 1 minute to Tender Crop Farm (for fresh produce). Just one suggestion if you are a light sleeper: You might want to use earplugs, since you can hear some noise from upstairs. Thank you, Michael and Cindy, for everything!"
