About Paula Irving

We enjoy walking our two dogs on the beach and all around the small streets of the island. We love the proximity of the house to the Parker River Wildlife Refuge and to Newburyport for shopping, dining, and other activities. We enjoy cooking, so having Tendercrop Farm just down the road provides us with a great variety of gourmet meats and produce. In town we love the Sunday Farmer’s market at the Tannery; it’s a great place to pick up dinner and peruse the local bookstore and shops. Best of all when we don’t feel like cooking we can walk to the Plum Island Grille, Mad Martha’s or the Beach Coma

Why Paula Irving chose Plum Island

After renting this house for two winters we fell in love with it and Plum Island. In fact, we liked it so much here that we bought the house. Now we’ve made this place our home for the winters. In the summer we retreat to our lake house so we really have the best of both worlds.

What makes this house unique

The most distinct feature about the beach house is the roof-top deck with its breath-taking views of the island. Additionally, the house is located on a quiet side street (open at both ends), so there is very little traffic/noise and the yard is completely fenced-in which is ideal for families with small children or pets. It's a short two minute walk to the closest beach path where the beach is rarely crowded.

WONDERFUL!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd visit to this amazing home away from home. We are from WA State and have family in the area so this was the perfect house to relax for a week while having plenty of space to entertain guests. All amenities are included here. They seem to have EVERYTHING you would need without the house seeming crowded. Many windows allow for nice sea breeze to flow day and night. We had an especially hot couple of days when we enjoyed blasting the A/C as well. The decks are where we spent the majority of our time. The lower deck large enough to BBQ and entertain. Upper deck with breathtaking views of ocean and tidal basin is where we spent both coffee and cocktail hour. Spent most days at the beach which is an easy 5 minute walk. Loved rinsing off sand with outdoor HOT shower too! We love this home and plan to return soon!

Best Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Spent a full week in this great little house and loved every second of it! We have two little ones and felt very comfortable with the house layout and more than appreciated the extra safety measures (outlet covers, cabinet locks, etc.) The owners were so thoughtful and very quick to respond to any questions we had prior to and during our stay (being able to simply text them was so easy and helpful).

We spent our days at Sandy Point Beach (the best beach ever!!!) and perfect for little ones (if you can find parking). We spent our evenings in Newburyport which had great food options and some yummy ice cream spots as well. The beach by the house was so close that we often went there at night when it was a bit cooler just to play in the sand.

The location was really quite perfect for us! Being minutes from just about everything is exactly what we needed for our little ones. The nice flat screen TV, wifi, updated kitchen and washer and dryer were all extremely wonderful to have as well.

We loved it and can't wait to come back!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
The house was well maintained, clean and in a great location just a short walk to the beach. Since it is September, it was nice and quiet on Plum Island. The roof top deck has a spectacular 360 degree view and we truly enjoyed relaxing up there. John and Paula were very easy to work with. It was a bonus to be able to bring our dog with us and she enjoyed the beach as well!

Great roof deck!!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful visit to Plum Island this year. The cottage was perfect for us, with absolutely beautiful views from the roof deck. We sat up there many times, and were able to see the sunset from one side and the sunrise from the other.

Paula was really great to correspond with, and made sure we had everything we needed. The cottage was very clean, well maintained, and very organized.

We are looking forward to our next trip back!

Great family vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
We had another great week at this gem on Plum Island. From the phone call we got from the owners on the ride up to the welcome note and bar soap made on Plum Island that greeted us on our arrival, everything was perfect. The house is well stocked and each time we return there is something new to make your stay even more comfortable (this time it was a new leather sectional). And, the house is pet friendly with a fenced in yard. While it only has one bathroom, the outdoor shower provides another option for a big family. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a wonderful place to spend a week (or more) at the beach!

Second Year vacationing here.

  • 5 of 5
This is our second year staying at this lovely home. It is very clean and extremely comfortable. After staying here last year we found there were several items we didn't have to bring with us, including beach chairs and umbrella. We are a party of five: myself, my son and daughter-in-law and two teenage grandsons. We all like it so much we made a reservation for 2015 as soon as we got home. The beach is within a short walk from the house. As long as the grandsons are interested we will plan to visit each year.

Plum Island is a wonderful vacation spot for couples and families! The 9 mile stretch of beach is one of the most beautiful in the country. We take great pride in ensuring our beach house is idyllic and your vacation there is memorable.

On Plum Island itself, there are fishing, harbor, and whale watching expeditions (northern side of island); the Parker River Wildlife Refuge for bird watching (southern side of island); the Plum Island Grill (dinner); Beach Coma (casual lunch/dinner); Mad Martha's Beach Cafe (breakfast/lunch); and a convenience and package store. The Plum Island Airport, on the causeway leading to the Island, provides aerial plane tours.

Newburyport is a just 3.5 miles away, where there are quaint shops, art galleries, outdoor concerts, live theatre, many restaurants, ample activities and special summer events. Great day trips include Boston, Gloucester, Rockport or historic Portsmouth, NH. There's something for everyone!
