Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family had a wonderful reunion at this beautiful and private place. With the swimming pool; tennis court;kayak; beach; and gorgeous ocean views,we felt like we had a piece of the coast of Maine all to ourselves. There was something for everyone--73 yr. to 1 yr! The owner was very pleasant and helpful in promptly answering questions. Would love to go back!

We live in Virginia on a farm and have three kids ages 8, 10 and 12.

John Ayers purchased this estate in 2000

I grew up on the east coast and vacationed throughout New England and the Mid-Atlantic as a kid. When we had kids, we decided to look in Maine for a vacation house and fell in love with Kennebunkport. The coast is so beautiful here and its easily accessible by car or plane via Portland. Our house offers the perfect blend of quiet along with tons of activities right from our home. We now have three kids and the best part is watching them grow up here and seeing them explore all that living by the ocean offers.

The unique feature of our home is the feeling of solitude you get sitting on the back deck or down at the beach. You feel like you're the only one out there, except for the seals, cormorants and seagulls passing by the shore. Yet there are so many wonderful things to do, from swimming in the pool and ocean, playing tennis, wiffle ball and football with kids on the beach, fishing, kayaking, and biking to name a few. The house is well-situated to host family get-togethers. Many of our renters are grandparents who want to get their extended families together in one house. Groups of adults -- be it a girls group, travel club or just good friends -- also work well in the house with five separate bedrooms, four of which have their own bathroom. Kennebunkport has many fun activities for children and adults. The food in Kennebunkport is outstanding too, whether your cooking fresh seafood at home or enjoying the fine restaurants in town or in Portland.

BEAUTIFUL VACATION HOME FOR ALL AGES

  • 5 of 5
My extended family and I recently returned from an incredible week in Kennebunkport. This house was absolutely perfect. We had 4 children between 8-3 plus 2 teenagers. There was something for everyone! We played tennis, kayaked, rode bikes and enjoyed the pool almost every day. The little kids thoroughly enjoyed the playscape and having direct access to the rocks and beach. We roasted marshmallows and spent lots of time throwing rocks in the ocean. There isn't a bad view from anywhere in the house. The rooms are great and the kitchen is fully stocked. All in all, it was a great experience and I would recommend this house to anyone, except when I plan to go back!

A PERFECT WEEK IN MAINE

  • 5 of 5
Our family started vacationing in Maine in 1930, but we had never stayed in K'port. This year we grouped family and friends at this wonderful house right on the ocean. It's unusual to be right at the sea, with a pool and a tennis court. The house was spacious and well supplied and the views could not be better. Everywhere you looked there was water. The house, tennis court and heated pool were in excellent shape.
Restaurants in the area were casual and easily accommodated our large group. The lobsters, scallops and shrimp were devoured. Too bad we were too early for Maine blueberries. But we'll be back!

A FUN FAMILY EXPERIENCE AT A GREAT HOME IN A SPECTACULAR SETTING

  • 5 of 5
We (five adults and two kids) spent a week at this home and had a great experience. We were awestruck by the expansive ocean view, which is unobstructed and seen through large windows in almost every room in the house. The house was everything it was advertised to be in the listing description and photos. Very comfortable, clean, well maintained, and well equipped, and designed to take advantage of the setting. The location is very private. Nice yard with playground equipment for younger kids. You step from the back yard down to the rocky shore. The owner was very helpful, provided a lot of information, and was eager for us to enjoy our stay.

Our visit was in March, and we enjoyed the lack of crowds in stores and restaurants and the ability to park almost anywhere we wanted in town. A few stores and restaurants had not yet opened for the season. Unable to use the pool at that time of year, we enjoyed a nighly fire in the fireplace instead.

We would enthusiastically recommend the house.

PERFECT VACATION HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We travel to Maine every August, but this was our first time to stay in Kennebunkport. We invited a group of old friends to meet up for a week's vacation. We had such a great experience at this house that we are already planning a return trip next year. The property is the perfect place to relax and the views are spectacular. I think we took advantage of every amenity listed--the pool, the kayak, the paddle board, tennis court, hammock, bikes, etc... The owner was very responsive when we had questions. I would recommend this house to anyone. Our favorite places to shop were H.B. Provisions and The Clam Shack and we splurged one night for our last dinner at The White Barn Inn.

GREAT MAINE VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
I chose this property for a special birthday celebration. I picked this out of many because our whole immediate family unit went. It couldn't have been a better choice. We literally never left the property because everything we needed was right there. We did have a clambake done for us on the property which was a special treat. The pool was awesome and the children were very entertained by this. The views are breathtaking and definately can be seen throughout the entire first floor. It was clean and identical to the pictures provided. Owner was accessible and most helpful. Hope to stay again in future.

AMAZING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We've just returned from a week at the house and we were very, very happy with the experience. The view - from the house, the tennis court, and the pool - is breathtaking. Being so close to the beach was terrific, especially for the older kids who could explore the tide pools and the rocks on their own (while on the lookout for the ideal place to make S'Mores). No one had to leave the property if they didn't want to - other than for necessities (the fridge is a good size...though we did argue about who "had" to go Bradbury's for provisions - their muffins are fantastic) - our only ventures out were to Cape Porpoise for (The Ramp is amazing). We can't wait to go back - highly recommend this property.
