Plum Island House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6+

This great waterfront Plum Island home is light, airy, and cozy - perfect for a family with children, reunion with friends, or romantic getaway. Unobstructed views of Plum Island Sound and the Merrimack River are spectacular any time of day. Open plan home with seaside charm and all modern conveniences, spacious private bedrooms. Expansive deck perfect for lounging or entertaining. Plum Island Sound ('the Basin') is the backdrop to the large back yard. Your own sandy beach and 'mud mooring' for your small boat lies at the edge of the yard. Also just a few minutes' walk to the ocean. This is a perfect location for a worry-free beach vacation (plus fishing, kayaking and more) with plenty of alternative activities in close reach for adults and children alike (Newburyport shops and galleries, theater and movies, range of great restaurants...). If you bring enough food, you might not leave all week!

Wishing you a wonderful Plum Island vacation! Thank you for taking an interest in my home on Plum Island. I hope the photos and descriptions here give you a good feel for the beauty of this location, the amenities available and the special vacation you could have here, but please call or email with any questions.

This is a large contemporary home; light, clean and comfortable beach side atmosphere so you can unwind and get away from it all. Waterfront location affords breathtaking views throughout the day. Ocean breezes as you sleep. You won't want to leave.

Fully equipped kitchen, dining area, living room with cable TV, wireless Internet, bath/shower, three bedrooms (one queen, two full) plus queen sleep sofa in living room. You will notice that this is not a typical rental property but a loved home with attention to details and conveniences. I am confident you will have a very special vacation here.

Huge deck with dining table and gas grill. Hammock perfectly positioned to catch the breeze and watch those great Plum Island sunsets in the backyard. A smaller balcony off the 2nd floor is perfect for morning coffee or sunset margarita...

The large back yard that fronts the water is divided in two parts: a flat grassy fenced in area and a natural beach grass-and-sandy area gently sloping to the tidal basin. The wooden path ends at the water. You can set up your beach chair or keep your kayak or canoe here in the backyard to pull in at your whim. Bring your fishing gear, Plum Island is famous for striper fishing.

The rental comes with an access pass to the Parker River Nature Refuge.

Easy access to Newburyport shops and summer fairs, less than an hour from Boston.

This is a non-smoking home.

My husband and I stayed at this home and our Military Son just returning from deployment and his pregnant wife met us there for the week. Wow we had the best week of weather and the Sunsets from this house can't be beat. At high tide you can just walk out the door and take a swim although it was a bit cold given the time of year my son did swim as he missed the Ocean so much. You can walk the beach at any time the whole family my daughter and her three children enjoyed visiting us and walking the beach. The fenced in Area is just perfect for children to play. The Deck was one of our favorite places to gather and the upper balcony deck for the best Sunset Views you could ask for. The house was clean and set up perfect for our small family gathering. The small gathering on the deck went perfect for my pregnant daughter in law who will have so many nice photos to share with friends and her coming baby boy. The owner was helpful with any needs we might have had. The week we spent had perfect weather and we could not have asked for anything better not to hot and not to cold. A big plus is two Full bathrooms on each floor, A fully stocked Kitchen to meet your needs if you plan to cook. I can't express how great the views are from this home except Spectacular!!!! I want to thank Jill for the use of this beautifully located home for our family get together and memories to last a lifetime. I did do some Pregnancy Photos at Sunset how beautiful they came out. Anyone who is interested in photography this spot is perfect. Thanks again Jill for a wonderful vacation we would have stayed the summer as we did not want to leave.

Wonderful winter getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 year old son stayed at this house during the winter while our new house was being renovated. We absolutely loved our stay! The open concept was great when you have a little one since we could be cooking supper while he played in the family room. The wall of windows looking out at the basin was our favorite feature. It was so nice to gaze at the water and feel the warm sunshine during cold winter days. And the sunset pictures included in this listing are no lie - the sunsets truly are amazing! The master bedroom is a real treat - you have a great comfy bed, 2 big closets and amazing views when you wake up in the morning. The house was plenty big for the three of us with two bedrooms upstairs, but it also has a finished basement that was perfect for when guests stayed over.

We also especially like this part of Plum Island. The whole island is great but there's something about being near the basin that's more interesting than the main beach side - more to look at and you can see the lights of Newburyport across the water at night. Plus you can easily walk about 10 minutes and be at the main beach. And you can't beat the huge porch in the back and your own private walkway to the beach! Even though we stayed there in the winter, we definitely took advantage of our close proximity to the beach and took many walks and our son had tons of fun playing in the sand and mud.

I highly recommend this to any couple or family looking for a cozy Plum Island getaway with amazing views.

Hot Hot Hot

  • 2 of 5

Beautiful House, great views and accommodations, however, this house DOES NOT have any air conditioning and when temps are in the90's or higher, this house becomes unbearable! The big beautiful windows that face the ocean become magnifiers for the sun during the day. For the large price tag for a week's stay, you would think they would at least have a/c window units available. Very unfortunate.

Owner's Response: I appreciate everyone who takes the time to write a review of my home, and really feel for the family who were at Plum Island for such a rare strech of very hot days this summer. Most guests have told me that the house is very comfortable on summer days because of its location near the water. Unfortunately window unit air conditioners will not work for the casement style windows or for the open plan nature of the house. For those very hot days, I recommend opening windows on three sides of the house to make use of the nearly constant breeze (sometimes from the Basin, sometimes from the ocean side), as well as drawing the heavy curtains designed to block a lot of the most intense afternoon sun . Also, I have purchased some additional fans that can be placed where needed.

Great for families

We had a great week here. Plenty of room for our large group (4 adults, 3 kids) and perfect for the graduation party we held there - very open plan and the deck is enormous. The interior is a bit lived in and maybe could use a coat of paint and carpet cleaning but for us with young boys in the house it made for a more relaxed stay. The access to the basin side beach (no waves, no current) was perfect for a family with young kids. I highly recommend the property.

family get away

  • 4 of 5

We had seven family members meet here for the weekend, along with 2 dogs. First of all what a great palce for the dogs!! The wonderful open floor plan made it easy for them to always be around us ( plus it made communication between the adults easier ). Then the large outdoor deck with the fenced in yard could not have been more perfect for them to play around. This arrangement would also work very well for young chidren. Looking out over the water either from the huge deck ( the hammock was so relaxing!) or inside with all the windows was so serene any time of day!!! The decor ( with all the Russian accents) was so lovely, interesting and homey!!! The newly remodeled bathroom was georgeous! it was so nice to walk around the neighborhood----so many cut streets to walk---and then end up at the beach. We plan to return for a longer stay and bring our kayaks!!

If we were forced to have to complain about something it would be the limited comfortable seating in the living room area, but remember we had seven people.

Just a suggestion for a close by great breakfast---Mad Marthas!! It's just down the road around 20th St.

I didn't want to leave. It was perfect for us on so many levels. We had a rainy week, which in another house could have been a drag but not with the view. Windows everywhere, birds, boats, cozy and wonderful attention to detail in the decor and spotlessly clean.

The pictures don't begin to do it justice! All the amenities (kitchen, grille, fire pit, private deck, fenced in small yard with garden) and your own beach make it ideal for families and couples.

Upstairs there are 2 bedrooms (the master bedroom is gorgeous with a queen-sized bed and great views). The 2nd bedroom also has great views and a full-size and twin bed. The 3rd bedroom is in the basement but it is decorated and cozy (just lacks the view). Good place to stick the kids!

The only difficulty we encountered was 1 bathroom on the main floor (so if you get up in the middle of the night you will have to go up or down stairs which was a bit challenging for my 79 year old dad).

Other than that- we'll be back next year for sure!!!!!!!! There are other Plum Island rentals (and we've rented houses at other locations) but this will be the first we return to!

Plum Island is a very special place. In addition to the quaint homes and cottages on the island, there is one of the best (and quietest) beaches in New England, over seven miles of pristine sandy beach and a large Wildlife Refuge and Bird Sanctuary, proximity to Newburyport, Ipswich, Essex, Rockport and other old New England towns, and some of the best sunsets you'll find. Opt for Plum Island over the crowds and traffic of Cape Cod and the Islands, you'll never go back!
