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.

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!

Wonderful 3 day stay in unique cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were 3 "gals", old friends, who got together for a few days. Loved the unique cottage and artwork! Everything was clean, beds were comfortable with pretty quilts. Didn't do much beach activity but enjoyed Newburyport, AND Castle Hill estate where we attended a wonderful monthly cocktail party and saw the 360 degree view including Crane Beach from the roof of the "castle" . Local restaurants were really good. The cottage was outfitted with everything one would ever need, and the bathrooms were fine, and well-stocked with lots of towels. Pam popped in to help the housekeeper finish up when we arrived (early) , and was so pleasant and nice.

Love it and hope to continue going there

  • 5 of 5

This past Memorial day week was our 4th or 5th year of renting the "blue house". Hope to continue the tradition for as long as possible. It is well maintained and the location is ideal. It is right across the street from the beach entrance and 1 or 2 minutes walk to a convenience store and the Beachcoma restaurant. Pam is a pleasure to deal with and quick to deal with any concerns you may have.

Portland, ME

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!!
