** 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.
** Weekly rent is $1,995/week from July 14 through Labor Day week and $1,295/week from September 8 through September 29, 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 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.
** 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 house also has a 400 square foot accessory apartment which can be rented between July 14 and September 29 by the week or by the month. Contact the Property Manager for more information about this apartment.
