We rented this house late in the season. We are a family of 5 (3 Teen/Young Adult Boys). It was a little small for us. But, as I said it was late in the season and we were looking for availability and affordability. The rental is best suited for 4 people. The bathroom is small but efficient. The owners were very accommodating. They are nearby and checked on us. When we reported two broken chairs in eating area, they showed up the next morning with replacements! The basin area, in my opinion, is not suitable for swimming and sun bathing but good for boating. The ocean beach, is great! It is within walking distance (use short cut path) about a 10/15 minute walk. A little challenging with beach paraphernalia. We dropped off people and things, one person drove back and then walked to beach. It is quiet area, perfect for what we were looking for--a relaxing, quiet vacation. We drove almost nightly to Newburyport for walking around, shopping, etc. The area is great for biking and for children. Very safe, low traffic. Also a great spot for a couple or girls weekend getaway!! A great breakfast place "Mad Martha's" is a must!!! I really enjoyed Plum Island and would return in the future!
