Lovely Plum Island Beach House
"This was our 6th year on Plum Island, but our first year at this beach house, and this house is my favorite. It is tastefully decorated with all the amenities and has that homey feel to it. Aside from having plenty of towel, which is a must at a beach house, and on outdoor shower, another must at a beach house in my opinion, it has a lovely view of the basin while being a very short walk to the ocean side/beach. There were plenty of rooms and baths to accommodate our 4 teenagers and us while providing plenty of space and privacy for all. The older kids would be on the lower deck, while the younger teenagers were on the upper deck, while my husband and I enjoyed the front porch. The enclosed front room is lovely for playing games and lounging when you want to be out of the sun but still cozy. Arlene even remembers all the little touches like soap, paper products, basic condiments/spices and even shampoo. I can't say enough great things about this place. And when my daughter lost a sentimental necklace, Arlene retrieved it for us and mailed it to us. We're looking forward to returning. The only thing that would have made it perfect was if we could bring our dog with us, but we find that many places on Plum Island don't permit that."

"After selling the house quick we needed a place to kick back for the winter until we could find our next permanent residence. After talking with Dick we knew that this would be the place. We settled in for winter in Mid November and looked forward to enjoying PI. The winter of 2015 tested our souls but having such a comfortable warm abode to come home to after work was truly a delight. It is now mid April and I can't express how beautiful this location is in words. The sunsets are truly breathtaking. Access to the beach is literally steps from the front door. Our daughter has loved escaping college to relax with her beloved pets that have also enjoyed this property. The kitten has grown into a cat and has found every perch to view the birds. We have delighted in cooking in the efficient well equipped galley. Now that the snow has cleared we are grilling on the back porch most every evening. Don't hesitate give Dick a call he will hook you up with one of the best locations on the North Shore. He and Maureen will be there every step of the way to ensure your vacation is spot on. I dread the day our lease expires."

"Awesome relaxing, total freedom, beautiful fully appointed home. LOVED it! Sunset every evening, perfect for entertaining as well. No dishwasher or garbage disposal tho,.. and concerned that they don't recycle.... so we did some ourselves. Grew up in area, we have extensive knowledge of area, so this was great for us!"

"We have stayed in many rental homes - 1 Southern Boulevard has to be the very best! It is spacious, gracious and oh so comfortable. It is beautifully decorated with high-quality appointments, tiled bathrooms and floors, elegant window treatments, great seating and dining arrangements and it has every amenity you could think of, from books & games to tea jars & coffee makers, hot tub to lobster pots. Two full refrigerators AND cold drink drawers (a great idea!); strong dependable wifi, Sonos, thick white towels, beach towels, more than enough outdoor loungers on the porch (high-quality ones at that...). And then, of course, there's the beach, just down the steps. Waves pounding away! (And there's even a swingset for kids.) If you have a crowd but don't want to be crowded (we were 14), this is a great place to stay. We all loved it; thanks ever so much to our gracious owner!"
