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 Newbury

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!

Aqua gem just steps from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

This property makes me think of a grand lady overlooking the sea! She may be an older lady but she has charm and comfort built into every corner. We loved everything about this rental property!! After 10 days, it was hard to leave.

From the outside, the home sits at an angle on the lot, overlooking the corner and public beach. A 5 minute walk and we were there on the sand, (even with our 92yr old mother!). The lot is gracious with a sitting porch, dining area, outside shower and ample parking. It provides great views, and varied seating areas with every room and/or weather condition. (One of our favorite activities was to sit and read on the enclosed porch, with the ocean breeze blowing in, watching life go by). There is ample parking too.

Inside the home is a feast of artistic, visual sights (paintings, decor, etc.), every inch inviting you to "relax and enjoy the sea." The furnishings are comfortable and relaxing. The beds are great. The full and 1/2 bath was helpful; and having the full bath on the main floor was very handy. The amenities provided everything necessary. And the washer and dryer, as well as the clothesline were a blessing with all those trips to the beach!

The owner, Pam, is a peach! She is very open and available. She was a pleasure to work with.

We would highly recommend this rental!

We left 2 days early

  • 2 of 5

Best thing about this place, it's near the beach access. That's about it. We left 2 days early, not comfortable-from the beds to the futons to sit on as couches. The unlit stairs that could have been very dangerous. Lack of privacy with the bedrooms. Have to walk through anothers bedroom to use the bathroom. Paid for a 2 pm check in and was told we wouldn't be able to check in right away, because previous renters weren't ready to check out yet and may not leave until 6 pm. Air conditioners did not work well, missing screens from windows, which allowed lots of flies and bugs in-couldn't be helped, it was hotter than Hades in there. If little children are to stay there, be careful of the large lures that are placed on the centrally located fireplace as decorations. Someone could get really hurt. I would say if you are young, collage age renters and a looking for a place to flop, don't care about lack of privacy then the blue beach house would suit you.
