  • Beautiful, well appointed house on Plum Island

    "I live in Newburyport, only three miles away from this location, and we rented the house off-season for my family to stay in when they were in town visiting. It was November and a little too cold to make use of the outdoor space but the inside of the house was warm and comforting. Eleanor was a very responsive host and the house had all the essentials you would need for a short or long stay. Although not right on the beach, the lot across Northern Boulevard is empty so you could still see the sunrise and the ocean from the second floor. The bedrooms do not have TVs and a large dinner table make the house conducive to time with family or friends. If you are looking for a party house at the beach this is not it but if you are looking for a beautiful comfortable space to stay and enjoy all the area has to offer, you've found it."

  • Comfortable, clean and convenient family house

    "We try to spend a week on Plum Island every summer to be close to my parents, who live in Newburyport and have a beach vacation at the same time. This was by far the family's favorite of all our rentals! With 3 adult children and a couple of their friends, we have decided that 2 bathrooms is a must, and the outdoor shower was a delightful added bonus. This year, my extended family was all in town for a family celebration and we were able to have several big family gatherings at the house. The kitchen is spacious, extremely well equipped, a pleasure to cook in and perfect for a big family. I loved having the family gather around the breakfast bar and nibble on appetizers as I prepared the meal. There are plenty of options for everyone to sit and eat or relax; there is a big table on the deck with a view of the harbor and for those who prefer, the screened in front porch is another perfect gathering place with its deep, comfy wicker furniture. The upper deck is great for watching sunsets or having morning coffee. This house truly does sleep 8 adults. All the beds are really comfortable, even the trundle bed in the 4th room, (which my full-grown son really appreciated after being stuck in a bunk bed or a rickety pull-out couch in other houses). Arlene was a pleasure to work with, responsive and accommodating. We also appreciated all the little extras Arlene adds to make sure her guests are comfortable such as candles, soap and even shampoo in the bathrooms, plenty of towels and nice linens, everything you could possibly need in the kitchen including supplies of paper goods, coffee and condiments. The outside grill is huge and works well and there is even beach gear; chairs, umbrellas and bags for your convenience. The only negative about this house was that we had to leave! We can't wait to come back!"

  • Great house for family vacation

    "We had a perfect week on PI at Days Serene. We were very happy with the house, I will give an honest review because I think that informed owners and guests have the best experience! Pros: LOCATION is great, walk to basin, river beach, and ocean beach. The neighborhood was lively on Friday & Saturday nights but quiet the rest of the week. PETS allowed. Dogs can go to the basin beach and lounge on the porch. there is yard space on the side of the house where we tied our dogs out while we were home, so they could watch the goings on in the neighborhood. Unfortunately previous guests allowed their pups to poop there and did not clean it up - pigs. I did my best to clean it all up. SPACE! So much space. 3 bedrooms, 2 baths plus outdoor shower, large open living/dining room, large porch, lots of parking. COMFORT: Beds were great, comfy couch and chairs, family style dining area, cafe seating in the breakfast area, plenty of hot water, AC is fabulous. AMENITIES: cable TV, wifi, beach chairs, awesome wagon to haul your stuff to the beach. Nice big fridge with cold water dispenser and an ice maker! Full size washer and dryer - don't be afraid to let your kids play in the basin muck at low tide! HOSTS: Dick checked in through messaging & phone and offered to come by the house if we needed anything. I didn't bring king sized sheets, since I misread the description and thought that the master had a queen. Maureen came over to drop off a nice clean set of king sheets. Thanks so much! I will list a couple minor 'cons' for those who might have particular hang-ups! ANTS: Perhaps an unfortunate result of having an older cottage on ground level :( we hid our food in the microwave, fridge, and oven because anything on the counter or in cabinets had ants crawling on it. KITCHEN: the kitchen had all the necessities, except for a dishwasher. so the small amount of counter space was cluttered with our dish rack. Any dishes we took out of the cabinet had to be re-washed before use - I would blame the previous guests not the hosts! We found some not-so-clean plates and silverware. The cabinets are kinda older, countertops not level due to the cottage settling. The oven is located on the other side - not the typical 'work triangle' but at least there is an oven! Who uses an oven in a beach cottage anyway? The kitchen was fine for us, but if you're looking for a gourmet work area you might not be thrilled. Overall great stay, thanks!"
