About the Property
Spacious 2-BR house, 2 baths, 2nd fl. deck, tidal basin water views, sleeps 4-6
** Furnished with bedding, towels, dishes, utensils, grill, 3 kayaks, sailboard & canoe
** Flat screen TV, cable, Wifi, CD stereo, extra 2-level trundle bed & living room sofa bed
** Plum Island is a VERY special place -- a wonderful area in which to relax and get away from the rest of the world. It has been written up in Forbes magazine & the New York Times. It is an 11-mile long barrier reef island (2 miles residential, 9 miles wildlife refuge especially well-known to bird-watchers), surrounded by lovely beaches, rivers, a tidal basin and the Atlantic Ocean. Outstanding place to bike ride, walk, hike, fish, sunbathe, swim and do any kind of boating. Only 3 miles from well-known quaint Newburyport with lots of great restaurants, antique shops, visual and performing arts, and weekend activities.
** The house is between The Basin (literally just a few steps away) and the Atlantic Ocean (2 short blocks). You can kayak in The Basin or enjoy the power of the waves on the sandy Atlantic Ocean beach. The Parker River National Wildlife Refuge is a short bicycle ride away.
** Normally, the rent is $1,995/week from July through Labor Day week, with a 10% discount for multi-week rentals. There is also a cleaning fee of $150 and a required refundable security deposit of $500. Half of the total initial payment (weekly rentals plus cleaning fee plus security deposit divided by 2) and signing of the lease is required as a deposit at the time of leasing, with the balance to be paid at least two weeks before the start date. In case of cancellation, 90% of payments will be refunded if the property is re-rented, 50% if it is not.
** Off-season rental is $1650/month (November through April), with a preference for a single rental for the full off-season period. A one-month security deposit is required. The rental is not available for the months of May, June, and October.

Plum Island is an 11-mile long barrier island just off the shore of Newburyport and Newbury, MA. The island faces the Atlantic Ocean and is linked to the mainland by a causeway/bridge that crosses spectacular tidal marshes and the Parker and Merrimac Rivers. Most of Plum Island is part of the 4,600 acre Parker River Wildlife Refuge and is on a major migratory path for many birds. An Audubon Center for bird-watching is just off-island. The island also has three restaurants, two convenience stores, a liquor store, deep sea fishing and party cruises, a lighthouse, and extensive beautiful sandy beaches. It is a little reminiscent of the movie "The Summer of '42."
Plum Island is conveniently located 10 minutes from the center of Newburyport, with its numerous shops, restaurants, arts, events, and other activities. It is only 45 minutes from Boston and 15 minutes from the New Hampshire border. New York City is about 4 1/2 hours away.
Year Purchased: 2000
About: I retired three years ago as an administrator at a small college and had lived in the Boston area for many years. I've always considered myself a lover of the ocean and sea. I enjoy kayaking, swimming, sunsets, and barefoot walks on the beach.
Why Plum Island, Newburyport, MA, USA:
I originally bought this house to live in, and I lived there year-round. I found Plum Island to be magical and a great place for rejuvenation. The ocean is literally only five minutes away, and there is a wonderful 45-minute walk you can take at low tide from The Basin adjacent to the house around the tip of Plum Island and back along the Atlantic Ocean shore. You can't help but be affected by the beauty of the island and the power of the ocean. Even though Plum Island is less than an hour from Boston, the beaches are not crowded even in high season, and you can feel relaxed and reflective while in the presence of natural beauty.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Plum Island is a paradise for those who love the beach and boating. Entry points to the The Basin for kayaking, sailing, and canoeing are steps away from the house. Beach activities abound on the Atlantic Ocean side. Or you can just relax on the balcony, sipping wine and watching breath-taking sunsets or lounging in the hammock. There are also many other activities nearby. Newburyport is less than ten minutes away by car. It is an old whaling town with restaurants, speciality shops, a playhouse, and a genuine New England quaintness. At the other end of Plum Island from the house is the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge. I have bicycled there many times. There are numerous walking paths for hiking. The Refuge is known nationally as a major New England center for its diverse bird population and the many people who come there for bird watching and other wildlife observation.
