OCEANVIEW WITH LARGE DECK, HISTORIC COTTAGE

Old Orchard Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Enjoy the smell and view of the ocean with a 5 minute walk to beautiful Old Orchard Beach. Located on a quiet residential street less than a mile from the town pier and Palace Playland. Originally the cottage was visited for many summers by Rudy Vallee. One block from laundromat, restaurant, convenience store, miniature golf; two blocks from train station. Off street parking available. Everything needed to have a relaxing and fun-filled escape.

Large, sunny deck, combined full kitchen and living area, 2 bedrooms on the third floor. Modern, comfortable living room with sofa double bed. King bed in master room. Other bedroom with bunkbeds and cable TV and WiFi. Charming, private, clean and comfortable. Excellent reviews from my guests. Off-season (Sept--May) rates available upon request.

Suitability:
  • pets not allowed
  • non smoking only
  • children welcome
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • Low Allergen Environment

GREAT LOCATION, GREAT PRICE!!

  • 5 of 5
We have stayed at this property 3 times now and it was great! The decor is pretty basic, but you have everything you need. You can even see the ocean from the balcony! The beach is only about a 5 minute walk away and it's actually very nice not to be right on the busy street closer to the beach. This is a great family rental with plenty of room, especially nice to have the little ones upstairs while we can stay up at night downstairs watching a movie or sitting on the balcony. The owner is also very nice and accomodating! I'd stay again and would recommend this place to others!!

CLEAN, COMFORTABLE, PLEASANT, AND WELL-EQUIPPED

  • 5 of 5
We had a great stay here. It's a nice place, homey, tasteful, well taken care of, and very comfortable. It was very spacious for two and could easily accommodate one or two more. The location is great: on a quiet street, walking distance to OOB and within easy driving or biking distance of many other great places to visit. There's a friendly neighborhood cat of uncertain provenance who thinks he lives there part-time, which is nice if you're into cats. The kitchen is quite well-equipped (although you might want to bring a sharp knife if you're going to be doing a lot of cooking).

Alison, the landlord, was a pleasure to deal with as well, although we didn't see much of her during our stay. When we realized at the last minute that the sheets we were going to bring wouldn't fit the bed, she very kindly provided the bedsheets and waived the nominal fee she ordinarily charges for a full set of linens and towels, which we really appreciated.

(A note about the provided wi-fi, in case it helps someone. On my Mac laptop running Mavericks, I had some difficulty connecting to the network. The solution turned out to be, instead of selecting the network from the list as usual, choose "Other" and enter the name of the network manually. Set the security type—I think it was WPA2 Personal, but I just tried them all till I found one that worked—and enter the password. I think this is a Mavericks problem, not a problem with the wifi, which worked perfectly for our entire stay.)

WONDERFUL LANDLORD TO WORK WITH ON THIS RENTAL!

  • 5 of 5
Although I'd booked a week with Alison, I had to cancel. She did a wonderful job of finding a new tenant and refunded the deposit quickly. She is honest, dependable, courteous and professional. I'm just sorry I couldn't go this year.

WONDERFUL OWNER

  • 5 of 5
We had a week in August booked with Alison and a family emergency came up last minute and had to cancel. Alison put extra effort into re renting our week and returned our deposit in full-not only did she refund our deposit she offered to help sell water park tickets we had bought in advance and she checked back with us to see how we were......I would do bussiness with her again in a heart beat and hope to re book next summer......like I said WONDERFUL OWNER!!!

NEEDS SOME UPDATES

  • 2 of 5
Pros - great location, 5 min walk to beach, 5-10 min walk to pier, nice to be away from the main strip - quieter (except for the loud party next door Sat night), well equipped with the basics -toilet paper, soap, paper towels, dishwashing liquid

Cons - awful odor upstairs (cat urine maybe?) primarily in the bunkbed room. Think the carpets need to be replaced up there to solve the problem.
