Not exactly as advertised

  • 1 of 5

The house was beautiful and the view was amazing. We were wondering if this was a duplex when we looked into renting it, so we emailed the owner to ask and he told us we had the whole house. So when we pulled up to the house, we were a bit surprised there were people out on what we thought was our deck. It turns out we DID NOT have the whole house like we were led to believe. The people next door were very nice, but it was a bit strange renting 1/2 a house, especially for that price. The listing on VRBO told us about the amazing views from the roof deck. But the first night we were there, we had about 5 people on the roof deck when the owner came running into the driveway yelling at us to get off the deck because it was a liability. All the cabinets were zip tied so there was little to no storage for our supplies. The cabinets that were not zip tied were stuffed full of items in them, and in fact even the oven was packed with pans. There was one drawer available in the main bedroom upstairs, which was challenging to put our clothes away. The dishwasher had a leak and we had to keep wiping up under that. There was also a house under construction right next door (which wasn't the owners fault) And after all that 1/2 of our security deposit was kept with an explanation of extra cleaning needed and missing items. This place was SPOTLESS when we left it as we spent the last morning cleaning up. I have reached out to owner several times for a better explanation and he has not responded to me. I would not recommend this property...we have rented on PI for 10 years and have never not received our full deposit back. Owner actually texted me to thank me for doing the linens, which we were not required to do, as we were heading home. I guess it does not pay to be nice to this owner.

Exceeded our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

This is perhaps the best-located vacation rental on Plum Island. Adjacent to the Merrimack River jetty, it is a short walk through the dunes to the ocean, and even a shorter walk to the river. There is a calm sandy beach on the riverside where young children can safely play. For older teenagers and adults, the ocean beach provides a more adventurous venue.

The rental unit is the oceanside condo in a two unit, well-equipped, beautiful building. There is offstreet parking at the unit, which is a real luxury on Plum Island. The main living area, with a well stocked kitchen, living room, and an opening to the main deck, provides ample entertainment area. But with four levels, the condo also provides adequate private space for those who prefer to retire early or to sleep in late.

Dominick is a gracious host, and very responsive.

We would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives, and we look forward to using it again in the future.

Beautiful Property with Breathtaking Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed for a week in this beautiful home. It was clean and well-maintained. The owner was wonderful to work with, as our original vacation home was suddenly unavailable. Every room offered a breathtaking ocean view. The large deck was a beautiful spot to sit and enjoy breakfast or a quiet drink at night watching the moon rise over the water. The bathroom is luxurious and the large kitchen had high end appliances. The bedrooms were large and there were 4 levels of living space - plenty of room for all of us! Our children especially loved the view from the rooftop deck. We were close to Newburyport and went to the restaurants and shopping. We also went on a whale watch during our stay. We only wished we could have stayed longer! I would highly recommend this property to families - it was a lovely place to stay!

Absolutely beautiful house right on the dunes! We loved having all the space on several levels, and the gorgeous deck and flowers were heavenly.

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely beach house and had a great vacation on Plum Island. The house was well-maintained, clean, well-stocked, very close to the beach, and offered great views. The owner was very responsive to questions and emails.

Great View and Location

  • 4 of 5

We have been coming to Plum Island for close to ten years and this is one of the nicest and best situated houses we have had the pleasure of renting. The duplex home overlooks the dunes and a very short walk on the path takes you to the water near the end of the inlet where the beach is sparsely populated and the wave action is especially well suited to younger children. The house is at a generally quiet, low traffic location and for most of the week there were no sounds from the other half of the duplex. The house is well appointed, almost too well appointed for a "beach house." A lot of owner items and decor throughout the house, which, with a dearth of available closets, may be the only downside for a rental guest. Still, there are many nice features including no lack of entertainment equipment (largely unused by us) and an up-scale and well supplied kitchen (dishes, pans, utensils, etc).far more than the usual rental kitchen where you can't find what you are looking for. Don't bother bringing games and DVDs with you, there are more than you will need. Towels were plenty and beds were comfortable. Saving the best for last, the deck running two sides of the house were for us the major attraction. It not only provides plenty of room and furniture to relax and have meals, in and out of the sun, but it is made the more appealing by the flowers, herbs and other plantings. The owner asks for the occasional watering, as needed, and one is more than happy to oblige. The house very comfortably accommodates 5-6 people and makes for a very relaxing time at the shore.
