This fully equipped apartment features two bedrooms sleeping four to five people, bathroom, living room, and kitchen. Enjoy magnificent sunrises over Prout's Neck and fireworks every Thursday evening. Walk out the door to seven miles of sandy beach. The main pier in Old Orchard Beach is only a one mile stroll in one direction and a two mile walk in the other direction leads you to Pine Point Beach and 'Ferry Beach' in Scarborough. Whether your dream vacation involves collecting shells, sunbathing or watching the seals play in the waves, it all awaits you at 40 Wavelet! The sand castles and sand dollars are waiting! Weekly Rentals! Seasonal rentals also available.
Things to do: Scarborough Marsh Nature Center is a short distant away, offering canoe and kayak rentals for exploring the picturesque marshes and bird watching. There are also walking trails and guided tours. Ten minutes away are Funtown and Splashtown, great family water fun. A quick 30 minute drive finds you in the Old Port in Portland,offering numerous restaurants, children's museums, galleries and arts museums. Fun day trips include ferry cruises around Portland harbor to a variety of islands with their unique appeal. You might be lucky enough to see whales and seals in their natural environment. Portland is home to 'The Sea Dogs,' the Boston Red Sox minor league team. Water skiing and golf are also great ways to relax. You may choose to visit Kennebunkport, a rustic seacoast village with a variety of charming shops, or drive through the White Mountains in nearby New Hampshire.
Of course, no visit to Maine would be complete without a trip to L.L. Bean in Freeport, open 24 hours. Be sure to bring your hiking boots, your bathing suit, your bicycle and your appetite. The seafood is extraordinary and plentiful! You will not be disappointed in a visit to Maine in any season! A vacation to remember and you will want to come back year after year!!
A current renter said 'It is a great place to make fabulous memories. Maybe I'll get lucky and swim with a seal again… magical' 'I have witnesses-it was phenomenal. Was our last day there too. What a wonderful send off !'
There is enough parking for each unit to have two cars. (with one extra for the entire building)
There is also parking on the street.
Enjoy this special Beachfront, property!!!!!
Perfect location! Clean apartment and friendly neighbors! My husband, six month old and I went for a spring beach getaway and this was perfection. We knew we wouldn't have warm enough beach weather but that didn't stop of from keeping busy. We will definitely be back!
I would give this property a 3.5, but as you cannot give half star ratings, I will round up to 4 stars. The location may be one of the best in Old Orchard Beach. Large windows all around give you a wonderful view of the ocean. Plenty of room in the unit for a family, and a picnic table on the deck for meals with an ocean view.
Upon arrival, we quickly met our neighbors, as they were already in Unit C, which was listed in our contract, and the owners told us that we were actually in Unit B. Simple mistake. We also noticed we did not have a grill as promised, so the owners quickly provided one. Walking into the bedrooms, we found that you must walk through one room to get to the other. This was NEVER advertised this way and could be a deal breaker for some. Walking in the bathroom, the door handle was broken and would not lock. Other things like burnt out light bulbs or broken blinds were also present. All of these are cheap and easy fixes that could have very well been taken care of before our stay.
I wanted to turn on cartoons for our child, however, the cable was not working. We were told they were transitioning to another provider. A few days later, as the family just sat down for breakfast and the baby was put down for a nap, we get a loud knock on the door as the new provider’s technicians were here to put in the new box. This was a nuisance, as it disrupted our breakfast as the worker walked in and out and talked loudly and woke the baby. It would have been nice to be notified of this service during our stay and we could go out for breakfast that day. Opening the BBQ grill, we noticed a large hole in the bottom. How is this safe to use on a wooden deck??? I placed a metal pan at the bottom for the charcoal and attempted to cook chicken, but couldn’t get enough heat so we tossed them. I told my family to take the remaining meat home with them, as I would not attempt another grilling night and we would just eat out the rest of the week.
All of this being said, I had the time of my life here. Maybe it’s because I’m a very easy going person, or that my family just made it wonderful, but I left Maine with great memories and for that reason, I gave this place 3.5 stars. I wanted to inform all about this property as to not be caught off guard like we were. But, I would suggest this place to other friends and family with the disclaimers of all mentioned above, and if they are ok with it all then I would highly recommend they stay here.
The rental unit was clean and freshly painted. The beach was beautiful and clean. Everyone that we dealt with were wonderful and helpful. There was plenty of parking for our two vehicles. We loved watching the fireworks on the boardwalk from the beach in front of our rental unit. This was the most relaxing vacation we've ever had. We didn't want to leave. We plan on going back every year.
This rental was just horrible...awful...(KIDDING!!!) We're just afraid if we gush / compliment this rental too much that there may not be availablity for us next summer!!! :)
We were kind of worried when we first rolled into the center of OOB - some of the hotels were questionable looking...but as we drove further, everything seemd to get much nicer / prettier... When we finally arrived at the house, parked, and walked up the path - it was instant heaven! The location of this house far surpassed anything I had hoped for!! In fact - we had all sorts of plans to go to various places in the area - and didn't - because we didn't want to leave the house / beach!! EVERYONE (other rental tenants, next door neighbors, people on the beach) were MORE than friendly. We received so many helpful tips / hints from these people (as far as good restaurants, convenience stores, places to see / go to etc) We even exchanged addresses etc with the other tenants - and are possibly planning on booking the same weeks as them next year!
When we first arrived, we had some minor issues that we needed assistance with. The owners went above and beyond to correct things IMMEDIATELY. They phoned us several times to ensure that everything was taken care of (while they themselves I think were vacationing in New Hampshire) They even had their "handyman" purchase a brand new window fan for us because the 1st weekend there was one of the hottest / muggiest of the summer. We weren't expecting them to purchase a fan!! Just an example of how they went out of their way to ensure our stay to be comfortable!! They said that usually a fan is not needed with the ocean breezes - and they are absolutely right - the rest of the week - after the mugginess passed...sometimes a sweatshirt was needed!
I think we found our new summer vacation tradition & am SO pleased we found it!! How early can we reserve??? Thank you!!!

Our family had a wonderful time at this appartement. The kids enjoyed the beach so much. It was a great location for us because the sea was on the front steps.

I would like to say that this stay was excellent!! The apartment is very well maintained and spotless. All the folks staying at the same place at the same time were all very nice.
There are charcoal grills and a picnic table, even on our second floor apt.
I have recomeneded this spot to friends.
The only problem we saw was, the parking. We were lucky enough to be able to park our truck at another site we used to stay at. My car fit nicely at the apt.
Thank you for the great time and place!!
