OCEANFRONT HOME - 6BR SPECTACULAR VIEWS & HANDICAPPED ELEVATOR

Plum Island House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedroom Suites, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 4.25 Baths, (Sleeps 14 -17)

This house has been my family's primary residence for 21 years. It is a dream come true to live on the ocean in a community rich with maritime and American history. I have always loved to share my home with family and friends and now want to share it on a rental basis for part of the year with families who will enjoy it and treat it like their own home.

I bought the original cottage which was located in front (ocean side) of this house and helped build this house while living in the cottage. The house underwent an extensive addition which dramatically changed it's appearance. Since the house is built into the primary dune, the main entrance and driveway is at basement level. Since I literally want to spend the rest of my days in the this house, I installed an elevator during the renovation to make that possible even if wheelchair bound. When I broke my ankle in April 2012, I appreciated immediately the obstacles this house might have presented to the handicapped. I used a wheel chair to do laundry, empty the dishwasher etc and truly was so thankful the elevator had been installed. I'm happy to extend all the joys you'll find in this house for those with extra needs.

Upon arrival, I will personally give everyone a kk30-45 minute tour of the house and show you how everything works (ie. elevator, German tilt/turn windows, A/C systems, fully automatic generator back up system, hot tub etc) and answer any questions you may have. I will be available by phone and in person if necessary during your stay and have technical support on call if any maintenance issues arise during your stay.

The surrounding area of Boston, North Shore, Portsmouth NH and all of northern NE for that matter are at your disposal while you stay at the house. Boston is 45 minutes away. Make the most of your vacation and enjoy! Enjoy what people love about Martha's Vineyard with less crowds, at a much better value, with much easier access.

Keywords: oceanfront, contemporary, stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean, a gourmet party kitchen, private walkway/stairs to the beach, three decks with 360 degree views, a six person hot tub, an elevator with handicapped access to all floors. sunset deck, ocean deck, sundeck, views of the ocean, the Great Marsh, Newburyport harbor, Cape Ann and all points north, all amenities within walking distance. Martha's Vineyard, without the hassle and a much better value.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Dave:



Thank you for opening your home to us. Growing up spending summer months on Lewis Bay on the Cape was something I will never forget. Allowing my family the opportunity to know what my childhood was like is very special. The house is a home! Our family, extended family and friends all enjoyed our time here.



Walks on the beach, an occassional fish off the rocks and quick rides to Newburyport all made our stay amazing. The view from the the deck is neverending and the sunsets can't be beat.



Thank you again for allowing my family to experience this house - your home.

I'm 59 years old and have worked in the high tech industry for 25 years and have now quasi-retired to manage real estate holdings. I have a 17 year old daughter and a 19 year old son. Besides enjoying my kids' sporting events, I love to fish, boat, sail, swim in the ocean, body surf etc. The ocean itself is ever changing and every day it presents something different to enjoy and marvel at and makes you feel happy to be alive.

David Willilamson purchased this house in 1991

It's always been a dream to live right on the ocean. The area offers great Striper fishing, an historic seaport town in all its original brick facades. Newburyport was one of the most productive ports in early Colonial history. The house is within a short drive of Boston, Portsmouth, Kittery ME etc. Enjoy all the history and sights of Boston, the outlet shopping in Kittery, ME and history and sights of Portsmouth, NH.

Fall asleep to the sounds of the waves hitting the shore or jetty in front of the house. Sit on the ocean deck and enjoy the boat traffic or people watch those on the beach. Enjoy the sun rise over the ocean from three of the five bedrooms. Bake in the sun on our Sun Deck which catches rays all day long. Watch the sunset from two of the five bedrooms. Enjoy the sunset with a cocktail as well as a panoramic view of downtown Newburyport, NH, Maine and the ocean from our Sunset Deck. Watch a movie with the extended family on a choice of 70' or 55' large screen TVs or play cards or board games at the dining room table with the ocean as your back drop. Play a game of corn hole on the deck if you're water logged from too much body surfing or swimming in the ocean. Make sand castles galore or relax the muscles in the 8 person hot tub. Need I say more?

SIMPLY THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
What can I say that the other reviews haven't already? We rented houses in various other locations around New England and have never encountered a nicer, more accommodating, and just all around great person as the renter. We were the first renters of this season and he clearly busted his arse to get everything ready. To top it off he also moved the grill for us and picked up our substantial load of trash and recycling.

This house was our base of operations for our wedding, and even though the (bad) weather dictated several last-minute changes to our plans, being in this house somehow made everything alright.

Some highlights:
- HUGE deck! When weather allowed we played cornhole right on the deck, overlooking the ocean.
- HUGE grill!
- HUGE hottub. Relaxing at the end of the long day.
- HUGE kitchen! Friends and fam more than once cooked for a group of 20+
- HUGE tv. We brought our AppleTV and streamed pics and videos from the weekend for all to see.

A huge house all around, with private enough rooms to get away from it all, but large enough common areas to not feel crowded when everyone is gathered together. And it is walking distance to eateries (Plum Island Grille, Beachcoma, Mad Marthas) as well as the liquor store, Dick's Variety, and PITA Hall (where we held our wedding!).
We cannot say enough great things about this house or speak highly enough of its owner.
Stay here if you can, you will not regret it.

THE PERFECT HOUSE FOR A LARGE GROUP!

  • 5 of 5
I hosted a mother's weekend here and it was simply amazing. Dave was so welcoming and made every step of the process very easy. The house is gorgeous, there were 15 mom's and there was tons of space for us all. In the past we've rented hotel rooms for our annual weekend but decided to try a house for a more intimate experience. It couldn't have been any better. We will absolutely be going back and we are all recommending it to the many friends and family who were just in awe of the pictures we shared from the trip.

AMAZING WEEKEND!

  • 5 of 5
We rented this gorgeous seaside home for my father-in-law's 80th birthday party so we could all stay together as we had family members coming in from all over. It was absolutely the perfect place for us to celebrate! The home is perfectly appointed for any kind of entertaining and the owner Dave, was so helpful and easy to work with.
I would highly recommend this property and actually hope to be able to stay there again in the future.

Owner's Response: Kim, thanks for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review! I'm so glad the 80th surprise birthday party was a big hit!! It says a lot about the spirit and energy of a family when they set up lights on the ocean deck for night time corn hole in January!!!! See ya for your Dad's 90th!!! - Dave

AMAZING HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for our autumn wedding and couldn't have been happier both with the house and location. The photos do not do it justice. It's right on the water with ocean views from nearly every angle and has multiple patios. The house has everything you could possibly need for a great stay and the owner is incredibly helpful and friendly. We were completely satisfied and cannot recommend this property highly enough.
