Had everything needed for cooking needs . If we had any questions the owner was quick and right there to answer. Really a nice place and felt right at home.
spectacular bedrooms open to oceanview
Awake to light-filled, spacious bedrooms with vaulted ceilings open to upper deck with ocean view. Central air (and excellent central heat winter), very comfortable livingroom with fireplace. Quiet, across street from beach access can be better than beachfront roar of waves and gale gusts. Although the occasional nights of howling winter wind increased the sense of place, became uniquely enjoyable. Excellent beachwalking even in winter, rare snow on island. Bill was an excellent responsive host.
Great beach house
We had a wonderful stay at this charming home in a great location. The view of the ocean from the upper deck was delightful. There was plenty of comfortable space for our adult children and our 2 grandsons. We only had one fairly significant problem, however. We had a couple of very hot days and had to use the air conditioning. I had a terrible reaction to what smelled like mold in the ducts. My kids were good sports and turned it off, but I am still dealing with some upper respiratory issues. The property manager was very responsive to the problem and hopefully it will be remedied by next summer. It would have been a perfect week if we didn’t have to use the air conditioning.
I am sorry to hear that the HVAC had that effect on you. I will look into this immediately by having the ducts tested and cleaned. We strive to have a pleasant experience for all of our guest and are committed to talk care of any issues that threaten that. I promise you you will not have the same problem if you choose to visit us again.
Not a good couch
The fold out couch in the study was not suitable for 2 adults to sleep on. The rest of the house was great.
beautiful house beautiful site
everything was fine except we ran out of propane gas at supper and the fridge was not done and the garbage was still in the house
Other Activities: Close to Parker River National Wildlife Refuge and a short drive from pleasant resort town of Newburyport, with galleries and restaurants.
About Bill Barrett
We live an hour away in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After frequently making day-trips to Plum Island, then renting cottages for a week or two over several summers, we decided to buy a house here where we could build memories for ourselves and our friends. We love the quiet, the bird-song, the closeness of the beach, the summer breezes, and the way the landscape and the light are always changing.
Bill Barrett purchased this House in 2000
What makes this House unique
Many of our renters have come back year after year when their children are young, and others have been people who once lived on the island and wanted to come back and visit. Winter tenants are often people considering moving to the island, starting a new job in the area, or making another transition. We think this is a house that welcomes people and wants them to feel at home.
