Literally 40 steps the beach, we enjoyed the convenience of being able to go to the beach daily without it being a big process. At the beach we found some nice, large shells, sand dollars and there are lots of hermit & rock crabs to be found.
We already have plans to stay here again next summer. The property was just as described. We stayed in suite 3 and enjoyed the ocean view and sound of the waves. It was clean, well-maintained and well-stocked with everything advertised.
Peter and Meryl were great hosts. We saw them a couple times during our week there and they were always friendly and offered area knowledge and suggestions for things to do and the best times to do them. Their communication in preparation for our stay was clear and helpful.
The location made it easy to make trips north to parks, forts and museums in Portland and Cape Elizabeth as well as south to Kennebunkport for sightseeing. There is a nice Hannaford store about 4-5 minutes away and several local seafood shops nearby. The pier was about a 10 minute walk with my 4yo and Pirate's Cove is a little closer.
It was our first trip to OOB and I think we really lucked out in finding as perfect a place to stay as I could have hoped for - we plan to make this an annual vacation.
