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, Plum Island Provision, The Cottage, Mad Martha’s or the Beach Coma
Why Paula Irving chose Newburyport
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 Plum Island our home. 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.

Perfect beach cottage!
This house is the BEST! My husband and i stayed here with our toddler and we loved it. Very clean, well laid out and kid friendly! The back deck and roof deck are also great. With the ocean being so close we could hear the waves crashing :)
Paula and John were super accommodating and were available for any questions while we were there.
We will for sure we booking this house for many years to come.
Great cottage walking distance to the beach. Perfect for families!
Property was clean and well organized for anything you need. Very comfortable and cozy, nicely decorated and the roof deck is fabulous! Great community with lots of activities close by. Great vacation!
Clean, well-maintained and well-appointed home!
I had the great fortune of renting this property for the winter. This property is exceptionally well maintained and appointed with everything you need. The owner's are friendly and always available if needed. Located a stones throw from the Plum Island Grill and centrally located on a high point on the island, you will be close to great places to eat in Newburyport and have great views of both the ocean and marsh from the rooftop deck. I highly recommend the property for an island escape!
The Best of New England!
This was our 5th visit to this gorgeous Plum Island cottage. It feels like our summer home! So many amenities are included from new beach chairs to coffee grinder nothing was missing that we might have needed. This all with an uncluttered, open and airy interior. We spend most of our time on the 2 decks. Morning coffee on the spacious back deck w/ full dining set. and evening local beer on the upper deck which is really the pièce de résistance of the cottage. From here we have 360degree vies of ocean, tide water basin, wildlife reserve and the entire northern end of Island. Another set of folding deck chairs up here too! As an audiophile I appreciated the Bose Bluetooth Speaker setup as well as the old school boombox for CD's > Our 10year old appreciates the zillion channel cable setup with Big (but not obnoxious) Screen TV. There is an easy path to the beach about 5 min walk from the house. We're counting down the days until our stay her next summer!
Great House, Great Location
This house has everything you'll need rain or shine and is in a perfect location - short walk to beaches, cheap Uber rides to Newburyport establishments :).
Happy, friendly home.
Perfect for a small, young family. The walk to quiet beach and Plum Island favorites was ideal. The home was clean, comfortable, and the owners were incredibly accommodating.
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). In addition there's a convenience store, ice-cream shop and package store. The Plum Island Airport, on the causeway leading to the Island, provides aerial plane tours and a local RC clubs gathers there many Saturdays to fly and demonstrate their planes and jets (yes, there are Radio Controlled jets).
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!
