"We just finished staying two weeks at this lovely home. The home was in pristine condition and the owner seemed to think of everything in this well appointed home with ample sleeping and three full bathrooms. The kitchen was very well appointed with excellent appliances and, as a result, we cooked many of our meals. This was ideal for our multigenerational family. The two living areas, one upstairs and the other down allowed different activities to meet the various needs.
The proximity of the beach and restaurants along with a Newburyport so close by, was a great benefit. Our family hopes to return."

Beautiful House & Stay. Unhappy with plumbing bill afterwards....
"This was a gorgeous and comfortable house in a great location. Loved the airy feeling and beachy style. We couldn't have been happier with our stay. Unfortunately, I was left with a bad taste in my mouth after my final dealing with the owner who charged me for a plumber's visit when the hot water stopped working during our stay. It was not a big deal to us as guests and an easy fix as apparently the water heater had somehow become partially unplugged. It took the plumber all of 5 minutes to identify and fix the problem, but the owner kept over $100 of my deposit, claiming that was half of the plumbing charge and saying that I couldn't "prove" I hadn't been in the utility closet and caused the problem. I hadn't been in that area of the house at all, but a contractor she had there doing work earlier in the day was and there were some hand tools stored in there that may have slid down the wall and caused the issue. Who knows. Strange thing to happen. But I don't think I should have been penalized for it. And her attitude about it was very accusatory and unpleasant. Too bad."

"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!"

"My husband and I rented the Gray Gull for a week in August. I have to say, I think it's situated on the best lot on Plum Island. There are great water views from three sides of the house. The house is located at the end of a road, and you truly are ten steps from the beach. This beach on this area of the island is great for children, as the water is calmer. We had front-row seats each night on the deck to unobstructed water and sunset views. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the furniture and some of the finishings were actually MORE updated that what is depicted in the pictures on this site. The cottage is tastefully furnished with a decorating style that's part Pottery Barn, part Mid-Century Modern. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the bathroom appeared to have been recently renovated. I'd highly recommend this rental."
