About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, ocean views.

Step into the wonderful world of Plum Island living. The location of this beach house is what makes it such a great choice and value. It is at the top of one of the highest spots on the island so you can enjoy a view of the ocean as well as the wonderful breeze. It is located just across the street from the beach. It is within easy walking distance to a convenience store, restaurants including Mad Martha's,Plum Island Grille, and tackle and bait shop. For WINTER rentals, it is conveniently located, not too far onto the island. A great plus during those snow storms!

The beach house is very clean and has new appliances just waiting for your enjoyment.

Saturday check in at 2pm.

Saturday check out by 10am.

Relax, the beach is waiting...

About Pamela Jones

We purchased this beach house in 2003 as an ideal rental property. We live in Newburyport and love going to Plum Island and knew that other would too!

Pamela Jones purchased this house in 2003

Why Pamela Jones chose Merrimack Valley & Essex County

We immediately loved the feel of the house. It is truly a beach house where you can take a breath and relax.

It is situated on one of the highest points on the island. This means that we have the long-view out over the ocean but don't need to worry about the ocean taking our home. We don't even need flood insurance!

We like the location because it is close to beach but also because it is close to the bridge onto the island. It is a quick ride to and from downtown Newburyport.

What makes this house unique

Very convenient beach access. Many people enjoy the bright colors, artwork, and warm feeling of the house. It truly feels like a beach house where you can relax!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This has been a lovely week. The teenage grandkids enjoyed the beach immensely, and the grandparents enjoyed that beautiful, breezy front porch. Thanks!

Very comfortable and amazing location

  • 5 of 5

My spouse, son and I live in Portland, ME and we were looking for a fun place to visit for a couple of days while my parents were in town from CA. I knew nothing about Newburyport area, but it seemed worth exploring. This house turned out to be ideal for us. We all had our own space, including my son. There's not a lot of privacy because the bedrooms are very close with thin walls between them, but that was fine for us. There were beautful porches and decks with peak views of the water. The gorgeous beach was only a few steps away. There are a few nice restaurants and food stores within walking distance. The adorable downtown is less than 10-mins away. Pam was a wonderful host. We never saw her, but she graciously responded immediately to any questions. The house is a completely charming beach house, and is well stocked with everything one could possibly need. We had a wonderful visit, and I highly recommend it.

Perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion with ages ranging from 3 mo to 81 yrs! Everyone had a great time and when the day guests left, we were left with a peaceful retreat for the rest of the week! We enjoyed biking, swimming, fishing, walking, exploring, and of course enjoying local cuisine!

The house is great with all the amenities you will need; though still retains the old Plum Island charm ( that I remembered from when my grandmother had a cottage here in the 60's and 70's )..... The hosts were great and let us stay late on our day of departure because no one was scheduled to move in!! I would highly recommend this gem and do plan to return!!

The house, our stay, the owners were all fabulous!!

We had an incident where the AC stopped working, but a call to Pam brought them out immediately to assess and try to fix the problem. When their attempts failed, they hooked up a portable unit to get us through the night, and a repairman was there first thing the next morning. In no time at all, it was running good as new!

We will definitely be contacting this owner again, when we are in need of a HomeAway in the area!

Great island house!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect island house for a family and friends group. We loved it - thank you! Absolutely everything you could have wanted was right where you expected it to be and the location was perfect. We were there during an extremely windy fall weekend and were able to see the dramatic surf - which was a treat. The staff at PI Beachcoma right around the block took wicked good care of us as we arrived late Friday night after a long wet drive. Had a great time at the farm-to-table dinner in the tent at the Colby Farm in Newburyport on Saturday. We will be back!

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our stay on plum island, the location the feel of it were all wonderful!

Many people who stopped by kept complimenting the layout, the colors etc I would also say one of my favorites was the front porch which was breezy and enclosed and perfect for coffee in the mornings. Would recommend to anyone!
