A couple friends along with me and my boyfriend just came back from staying at the Beach Plum (July 30-Aug 2) and I can't say enough good things about it! The room we had was a ground floor studio which was super clean and more than enough room for the two of us. Our friends had a ground floor one bedroom that was a bit bigger and had a nicer TV, iPod docking station, and more sleeping area. Both rooms each had two chaise lounges and a small table and chairs outside the sliding glass doors on the patio. This was a wonderful place to have coffee in the morning and drinks late at night. The only drawback about the ground floor rooms is the noise of people walking in the room upstairs--it sounded like a hockey game above our heads when we were trying to nap in the late afternoon. But luckily, all of the noise and stomping stopped in the evening so sleeping was not a problem.
The location is the biggest reason to stay here. The beach area was the least populated on that stretch which was fantastic! You walk right across the road and down the trail to the beach, an amazing convenience. Add to that the fact that you can literally walk less than a quarter mile to get into town. We were thrilled with this, not really knowing beforehand exactly where it was located. I wouldn't trade this convenience for any other amenity at any other hotel.
The people at the desk were super helpful, providing us with an iron and small ironing board when we needed one. We also arrived before our room was ready and they told us to enjoy the pool, the beach, the town, and they would call me on my cell when the room was ready, which they did in less than an hour.
There is a lovely back yard where we grilled on the grill and ate at the picnic tables provided on a couple of the nights we were there. We also brought our bikes, which we locked up to a tree at the side of the property but many people simply stashed their bikes, unlocked, in between the two buildings. It's that kind of place, no one was worried about people walking off with things, a very family friendly, low key environment.
We didn't use the pool the entire time we were there--why when the beach is right outside your door?--but it looked very clean and well kept. We also had no problem with noise but I'm sure that all depends on who else is staying there while you are.
I highly recommend the Beach Plum. Even the price was reasonable considering we were there at the very height of the season. We are definitely planning on returning next year--this time for even longer than three nights!
