This house is very cute and homey. It is bright and clean. It does not have air conditioning, and gets very hot and stuffy during the summer months. It also has a damp moldy smell when it is wet and humid outside. I would recommend getting a small a/c unit.

Good property, okay location

I'm always on the fence about whether renting from Atlantic Vacation Homes is worth the money, since it's quite expensive for just the two of us, but we needed a weekend away and this property was great. Nice house, very cozy, great kitchen. Two warnings - 1: no A/C, just fans, so in the hottest part of summer it might be a bit much, but Labor Day weekend was fine. 2: very old couch, very uncomfortable. Bring your own pillows. The nearby beach was okay, but gets a lot of muck from the nearby swamp. It's a short drive to better beaches, but if you just want a quick dip or to watch the sunset it's perfect

Pandemic drove us out of our home that we were sharing with our daughter and grandchildren. Plum Cove became our home away from home for two months

Wonderful stay in this house near the beach

Highly recommend this rental. The house was perfect, very well furnished, modern kitchen where nothing was missing. Even though the house is by the main road it has a very peaceful back yard (with a grill and relaxing chairs). It offered a little peak view of the ocean. We appreciated all the beach chairs/umbrella and toys too. Best part is that the house is located 5mn walk to Plum Cove Beach, beautiful quiet little beach (perfect for kids and for watching sunsets). Atlantic Homes were very good too with the logistics of the rental and the cleanliness of the place. I would love to go there again!
