Little Piece of Heaven

We stayed 3 nights in this beautiful home and absolutely loved every minute. The views were phenomenal, the house clean and nicely decorated, the kitchen had everything a cook could need. The furniture was so comfortable and the claw tub a bonus! We enjoyed watching the same family of ducks come close to the home every high tide. We watched egrets fly by and osprey and terns hunting. Sailboats and kayaks and fishing boats were always on the horizon. Sunrise and sunsets were spectacular. The location was perfect for either heading to town for shopping and lunch or heading to the Parker River Refuge to walk on the beach and check out the piper plovers and herons and egrets. We hope we can make it back to htis special home again.

Magnificent Sanctuary

Our vacation travels have taken us to many lovely rental properties but none have captured our hearts quite like 'Joppa House'.

Ideally located in a beautiful tranquil setting on the Merrimac River between Plum Island beaches and the quaint town of Newburyport, this magnificent sanctuary never ceases to amaze with its wonderful vistas from every window....the breathtaking sunrises over Plum Island, the many mallards splashing in the ever-changing tidal pools of the river, and the egret and heron hiding in the lush tall grasses.

This little gem is tastefully decorated, tenderly cared for, and thoughtfully furnished with everything one could possibly need for a perfect stay.

Thank you, Gillian, for your many kindnesses and gracious hospitality. We look forward to our return.

Birders' Heaven and an Architectural Gem

Birders' Heaven and an Architectural Gem

A magical location with a spellbinding view of the bay, Joppa Flats House is perfect for a couple. Watch ducks, geese, eagles, seals, otters, muskrat and shorebirds from the comfort of your designer easy chair. Proximity to the Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and Mass Audubon Education Centre makes it birders’ heaven! It’s an easy 30 minute walk to Newburyport’s restaurants and shops and a superb base for exploring the North Shore.

The gracious owner has anticipated your every need in a well stocked kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances, comfortable seating with good lighting, high speed internet access and satellite TV, and a quality king bed accessed up a stainless spiral stair. The house reflects sensitivity to its environment and a wealth of architectural details that make you smile. And oh, the view! Stayed for a month and delighted in the ever changing panorama every day. Truly hard to leave such an exquisite gem.

Many thanks Gillian.

This is the house that you always hope that you'll find but never do. It's awesome. Awesome location, amazing and unique house, fabulously equipped, very clean, great owner.

My wife and I live less than a mile from the house and had walked by it for years admiring it. Finally we got to rent it one weekend. It was just as nice on the inside as it was from the outside. The house has interesting tasteful furniture, a great, well equipped kitchen (with great appliances), and fun artistic and architectural touches to discover and explore. Normally when you come to Newburyport/Plum Island you want to spend all your time going outside (great beaches, kayaking, bicycling, boating, great restaurants) but the house is so nice you almost can't do better by leaving it. Then again with all the windows and the two decks, being at the house is like being outside – with luxury.

We'll be back.

Joppa House is one of the most delightful places I've been to - the fantastic and restful location, wonderful views, and a beautiful and welcoming home. The place was perfect. The decor is stylish AND comfortable. Every amenity was there - from plush towels to wonderful soaps to a few snacks in the fridge when I arrived. It's a quick bike ride to Plum Island. The time went so quickly. I really didn't want to leave.

Thank you, Gillian, for making such an amazing and relaxing place available. Thank you.
