My family and I have just spent a glorious holiday at this spectacular home just steps from beautiful Old Orchard Beach. The home was clean, well appointed and just as was described in the listing. Our family is 5 adults and 3 children and the home was very spacious enough (and then some) for everyone to have plenty of space to stretch out. I adored the kitchen (large and stocked with everything anyone would need), since we all love to cook and enjoy our meals at home. Absolutely loved the gas grill too!! I would highly recommend this home for anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing holiday. There is nothing at all so calming for the soul than falling asleep to the sounds and smells of the sea. Nobody would be disappointed with this lovely home and location.
The only bits of constructive criticism I might add are as follows: a few more beach chairs for guests (as there were only 4 provided), playthings for the children (boogie boards, beach toys etc), and providing towels and sheets. Other than that, everything was perfect and we had a wonderful week together. Thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us.....much appreciated!
What a fabulous week we had in this beautiful well appointed beach home. The private beach was such a treat. We were here with 7 adults and we had plenty of room to spare. We all agreed that this was probably the nicest home that we have ever stayed in. Looking forward to next year.
We've spent the last five years enjoying this "first class" beach house. The accommodations offer all the comforts of home. We have enjoyed many morning sunrises, long walks on the beach in search of sand dollars, breath taking views of the ocean while relaxing on the porch, and the rhythm of the waves putting us to sleep every night. We couldn't ask for a better place to spend our summer vacation. We count the days each year until our return visit. "It's truly a little piece of heaven."
We spent a week at this lovely home in June 2010 and could not have had a better experience with a vacation rental. The home itself is a well-loved, well cared for beautiful oceanfront home. It is all that is advertised and is somehow even more beautiful than the pictures reflect. It very comfortably accommodated 9 adult guests throughout the week and the home never felt crowded.
The living room, which looks out to the ocean, is open yet cozy. It has been furnished with very comfortable couches and chairs. The modern kitchen was well stocked and also a comfortable gathering place for guests while meals were being prepared.
The upgrades the owners have meticulously undertaken add value to the total vacation experience. Their modern mud room and downstairs bathroom are both spacious and beautiful.
The views from all but one of the bedrooms is toward the ocean and the views from the downstairs and upstairs master bedrooms cannot be beat. Simply breathtaking, particularly from the upstairs master suite.
The beach is perfect for taking long walks and the home is within walking distance to Huott's Seafood Restaurant over in Camp Ellis. There is nearby Kayaking at Bare Knee Kayak rentals in Camp Ellis and we kayaked along the Saco River twice while there. A fun experience for all ages (we had ages 19 through 67 on our trip and they all kayaked!).
Freeport, Maine (with L.L. Bean), Kennebunkport and the Portland Head Lighthouse are all within a 30 minute drive and worth visiting while in Saco. A local movie theater and grocery store are within 10-15 minutes, and you can get homemade ice cream cones along route 9, just a few minutes from the home. A fun excursion for all.
Overall, a wonderful place to rent and spend a week with family and friends. The owners are very involved in this rental and very responsive to any issues or concerns that may arise during the week.
Our family and friends give this rental a 10+ rating!!
It was our pleasure to spend the last full week of August, 2009 at this lovely, lovely home. There were 10 adults in our party - everyone had their own space, and were able to be very comfortable when dining and relaxing in the living room. The spacious deck provided room for all. The description of rooms is accurate except that one of the rooms with twin beds is actually a day bed with trundle. This did not matter to our family, but should probably be made more specific in the description. The house was spotless when we arrived. The home is located in a very central location - only minutes from numerous restaurants, shoping and attractions - a five minute drive to Old Orchard Beach Pier area. We watched the Thursday evening fireworks from Old Orchard right on the beach in front of the house. We couldnt' have chosen a better location or a more comfortable and beautiful vacation home.
