The Ultimate Beach Home was featured on HGTV'S*** "Beach Hunters." Season 1, Episode 13; New England Coastal Home. And, we are dog friendly. How ultimate is that?!
Tucked away in the far, far northeast corner of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is the small, ocean town of Salisbury Beach ( Inc. 1640 ) AKA Colchester ( Est. 1638 ). Imagine waking up every morning to the sound of seagulls singing in perfect harmony with the waves crashing outside your open concept living area or our three bedrooms. Open your eyes and appreciate the stunning beauty and unobstructed, panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean, reaching as far as you can possibly sea/see. Once awake, retreat upstairs to your sunny, open floor plan to sip your morning coffee and welcome the marvelous ocean views with every glance and turn.
Welcome to the ultimate beach home! One of a tiny handful of homes on the ENTIRE span of Hampton/Salisbury/Seabrook Beach, that ACTUALLY looks like a beach house; right out of a movie, TV show ( which it has ) or magazine. Many say this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Massachusetts/New England and you'll see why. Others feel the same way-
May 02, 2018, BOSTON GLOBE MAGAZINE, recently voted Salisbury Beach the 2nd best beach in New England! They sited great for families, soft beach, surfing, wheel chair access, kayaking, fishing, and swimming. And for consistency, on June 23, 2017, addition of BOSTON GLOBE MAGAZINE, voted Salisbury Beach, the #4 best beach in Massachusetts. #2 in New England sounds much better and we'll take both.
The home offers incredible sweeping views. Light, airy, elegant, clean, quiet, AND direct oceanfront! Coastal livings finest............ Great natural-light throughout the two-level, spacious home, all-year-round. 700+ square foot balcony/deck! This home sticks out further than any other on the entire beach with zero obstruction and you can see for miles in all directions; from Cape Ann to the seacoast of New Hampshire and Maine to the Isle of Shoals and more. ............even three Windmills off-in-the-distance, in Gloucester, MA, on Cape Ann.............
Situated on the very desirable north end of Salisbury Beach, we are mere minutes from 95, 495, and route 1. This home is outdoor living at its finest with an inside decor and amenities to match. Amazing sunrises over-the-Atlantic and sunsets over-the-Blackwater River Great Marsh.
The Moon sparkling on-the-Atlantic..... The nighttime is better than the daylight. The moon, visible all evening with zero obstruction never gets boring. Wait until you get to see it rise over-the-horizon and it has an orange glow.
Have you ever looked at the ocean, to the east, while the sun sets in-the-west? The water, sky-line, and sand turn lavender! Imagine relaxing on the deck with beautiful pink sunrises every morning or maybe a color, so unique, you've never seen it before....
Sept 2017 and 2018-
Humpback Whales, Seals, and Pogies pay a visit to Salisbury Beach and seemed to stay directly in front of our home for the entire month and within 100 yds of shore. It was quite a spectical! Please see our photo gallery.
How about a rainbow or a breath-taking thunder and lightning storm? Just watch from our oversized balcony/deck.

More about historic Salisbury Beach-
Amazingly and conveniently close to 95, 495, and route 1. With a slower pace of life and a friendly populace that can trace its lineage back to the first English settlers, it's no wonder people head to this Essex County hamlet every summer and all-year, to get away from the daily grind. Our Salisbury vacation rental provides the perfect retreat from the every day. Walk to restaurants, pizza shops, the best soft serve ice cream ( black raspberry and coffee- yum! ), a large, local farm stand, fireworks store, and the Mass/NH state line.
With five miles of pristine beach and homes dating back to the town's formation, Salisbury ( FKA Colchester ), Massachusetts, enjoys a reputation as a quaint summer colony with historic flavor.
Salisbury is all about nature and the coastal waters. It's a big reason this town is one of the most popular on the North Shore and in Massachusetts. The Salisbury Beach State Reservation is a nearly five-mile ocean side park ( plus 2 miles of Seabrook Beach ) offering many places to swim, fish, and camp. The campground boasts renovated bathhouses and the beach offers a boardwalk and playground. Head northwest from the beach and you'll come across picturesque Allen Rock, a marshy island, as well as camera-ready Badgers Rock, a small outcropping on the Merrimack River.
Kids of all ages will enjoy the plethora of mini golf sites, in-town go-cart tracks, arcades, and adults will enjoy touring area farms for produce and flower bulbs, and scenic drives up or down the coast on scenic route 1A. All year-round concerts are held at Blue Ocean Music Hall at the pavilion on historic Salisbury Beach. Most, if not all seats are within 50 feet of the stage, offering a bird's eye view of the performers; both famous and local. Summer concerts are held at Salisbury beach center and weekly fireworks can be seen from our deck.
With its convenient North Shore location ( minutes from 95, 495, and route 1 ), Salisbury is a great spot from which one can organize day trips around the region. Boston is only 40 miles to the south, with spooky Salem even closer. The small coastal hamlets of Newbury and Newburyport lie just adjacent to Salisbury and have some cultural as well as natural sites. 10-11 minutes from downtown Newburyport - fast becoming the #1 Summertime Tourist destination in Massachusetts.
Newburyport, known as the "Landside Nantucket" (only better!) Easily accessible to Boston & Logan Airport only 40 minutes away by car, or 1 hour by train.

Or visit some of the other countless attractions Boston has to offer - The New England Aquarium, Children's Museum, Museum of Science, and the Museum of Fine Arts - to name just a few!
Plum Island lies just off the coast, offering natural wonders as far as the eye can see and some of the best bird-watching in-the-country. Portsmouth, New Hampshire and Maine, are several minutes up 95 north. Portland, Maine is just under 80 minutes. The town of Amesbury, a re-energized mill town, is less than 15 minutes and offers shopping and over a dozen restaurants.

For the avid fisherman, Newburyport Harbor, Joppa Flats, and the mouth of the Merrimack River are known for the most productive Striped Bass fishing in New England and the entire East coast! Or, drop a line in the Atlantic, right in front of our home......... We've been told that the best fishing spot, is at the buoy, about 400 yds, directly in front of our home. You'll see the boats every morning.
