About Pamela Jones

We have lived in the Newburyport area for over 25 years and enjoyed this home for 5 of those years. When we moved from it we turned it into a vacation rental. We own and rent out a beach house on Plum Island and decided to see if there was an interest in people renting this beautiful Victorian in Newburyport. There is! We now enjoy providing a home away from home for visitors.

Pamela Jones purchased this house in 2005

Why Pamela Jones chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

Our home provides a wonderful place to stay for various reasons you may be visiting the area. We have had a vast range of guests. Wedding parties or guests, vacationers that want the option of the beach without the sand and traffic, business travelers that enjoy a home stay instead of a hotel, people gathering for family reunions, families needing a home while theirs are being renovated, families wanting their children attending the Newburyport schools.

What makes this house unique

Our guests have enjoyed this home in particular because of the large dining table, number of real beds, books and games, fabulous location, large master bedroom, basketball hoop, relaxing in the yard, sunny porch, gardens, most importantly, customer service. Because we live in the area, we do our best to quickly resolve any issues that may arise.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Your house is wonderful, and was such a welcome respite from our business meetings! The neighbors were friendly, the board games were amazing - and the fridge has a light sensor! We look forward to returning to Merrimack College, to Newburyport, and here!

Gamechanger for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Pam helped us out of a tough situation when the house we were supposed to rent had no wifi which my husband and I needed to work while we were in Nbpt. She responded to my request within minutes and met us at the house 30 minutes later. The house was a godsend - working wifi and cable tv with Chromecast, plenty of bedrooms to separate teenage boys for privacy, 3 bathrooms, a great kitchen and a washer and dryer. The basketball hoop was a huge bonus. The location is great and the neighborhood is quiet and safe. We will definitely rent this house again.

A Christmas Welcome

  • 5 of 5

What a great location to hold a family gathering at the holidays-- or anytime! The house was warm and welcoming, with additional special touches, including a decorated Christmas Tree so that all we had to do was enjoy each other's company. The owner was so thoughtful and helpful with every question and concern that we had. Fabulous customer service, great house, wonderful location... what more can I say?

Business meetings were made lots of fun

  • 5 of 5

i operate an international business and I've used this home twice to host visitors from the Philippines for week long stays. The house worked great for four guests. Everyone had lots of room and privacy. And, we enjoyed the quaint ambiance to host in-house meetings, family style meals and a laid back summer lifestyle in Newburyport. We'll be back next year. Thanks Pam for being so attentive to my groups.

Great Newburyport location

  • 4 of 5

Great location right outside of downtown....we ended up with cold and rainy weather for much of the week, but the wifi and tv kept the kids busy and mom and dad got to take some nice scenic runs on the few sunny days down to the beach at plum island. Owner was very responsive to any inquiries and the large number of bedrooms helped keep the kids separate which always nice after a long car ride :). Basketball hoop and skateboards were an added bonus and the kids really liked the longboard. I would recommend for another stay, especially in the warmer months, though it was a great stop for us and convenient for a home base for us seeing relatives in the area of Danvers and Exeter.

Historic Home

  • 5 of 5

We chose this house as our home away from home for our son's wedding. It was perfect. It expanded to fit our family. We felt like we were part of the community. The kids loved trick or treating in Newburyport. I think it is the place to be for Halloween.

Great Getaway for a Family Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this lovely house during our son's wedding weekend. It was the perfect place for all of us, from the youngest granddaughter to my husband and me. We hosted a brunch the Sunday after the wedding and the layout of indoor and outdoor spaces was just perfect. If ever we are in the area again, we would definitely stay there again.
