  • Sunny, spacious and well-equipped

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was more than helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our family from Maryland, NYC and the Boston area united at the Seaside House for a week in August, including two small children. We have stayed at numerous properties near Good Harbor Beach over several decades, and found Seaside House to be a spacious and well-equipped property just a short walk from the beach, with the added benefit of the lovely Bass Rocks views and walks. Terrific weather and a full moon over the water added to our enjoyment. The owners are on the property and offered any assistance we might need, but all went smoothly. We would suggest the addition of room darkening shades in all windows, especially on the front of the house. It's a great house for kids with all the diversions of the beach, a nice porch, and super play and game room. The busy street traffic right in front of the house was the only downside for us, and did not seriously detract from the restful experience."

  • Just what we needed!

    "We just spent a rest filled weekend at this lovely home. Two busy Mom's took time out to refill our cups. We walked on the beach, napped in the most comfy beds with lovely linens and found fabulous places to dine with out having to leave Plum Island. When we did leave the Island there were endless things to do in Newburyport. Many shops to poke through and more great restaurants. This home is very clean and has everything you could need for a beach vacation."
