SUNNY, SPACIOUS, AND SERENE

  • 5 of 5
The house is sunny and airy, with plenty of cozy furniture and a bright, classic decor. Loved the claw-foot tub!! Highlights included eating on the patio and making a fire in the evenings. Beautifully maintained inside and out with plenty of room for everyone. Nice location, close to the beach and lots of good day trips. We'll be back!!

CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

Can't wait to go back!
  • 4 of 5
With three boys under the age of four vacations tend to be more work than play, but our week in Maine was heavenly! The proximity of the beach was great and the beach itself made the trip - flat sand and an enclosed cove meant my husband and I could actually sit down in beach chairs while the boys ran around and even while they played in the water. Add to that a walkable market with everything you could possibly need, a gourmet sandwich shop AND a lobster co-op next door and you can't get much better. We drove to downtown Kennebunkport for ice cream most nights and walked around the shops - one of the other best parts is the people. Super friendly and laid back - you feel instantly comfortable and at home up there.

The house is laid out well with a large eat in kitchen and most importantly, a kids play room! All in all, were it not for the winter months I almost convinced my husband we should move up there. It was a great week in a great house and I would recomment it to anyone.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED!

  • 5 of 5
Although it has been several months since our stay here, and life has gotten in the way, our vacation here was better than we hoped! Our daughter graduated from the University of New England that Saturday, and she lived down by Goose Rocks Beach, which is very close!
Also, very easy to get into Kennebunkport from here... the house was clean, well-stocked for cooking and the beds very comfortable(all of them!} The owners were extremely easy to reach and deal with throughout the process, check-in was easy.
Don't forget "The Wayfarer" walking distance for breakfast; "Noonan's Lobster Hut" across the street for lunch, and of course," Pier 77" down the road on the water for dinner...drinks, or lunch!!! We loved our time here and will be back!!!!!!

PERFECT FOR A FAMILY GETAWAY!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 3 rented this spacious house knowing it was more than we needed, but we loved the location and layout and knew we'd have plenty of space for entertaining, and a bed for whatever random relative might have stopped by! We hosted a dinner for our 37 family members that converge on Kennebunkport every year; of course it rained that evening and everyone was inside, but we had plenty of room and the back play room was perfect for the little ones.
The beds were comfortable, always a plus since we've rented houses with awful beds that killed our backs. Facilities were well maintained, and linens are available (but I like to bring my own pillows and towels). I loved being able to walk everywhere - to the pier for my morning stroll, the Wayfarer for breakfast, Cape Porpoise Kitchen to pick up sandwiches for the beach, the Captains for dinner, and Bradbury's for groceries. Nunan's Lobster Hut is across the street, but you can also get lobster and steamers to go at Langsford's and a co-op right next to the house. Getting to downtown Kennebunkport is very easy from here (I find road signage to be lacking and confusing around here!).
Other family members are now eyeing this house for future rentals, since they have much larger families than ours! With our huge clan, it was nice to be close to Goose Rocks Beach, where everyone else stayed, but also nice to have our own space a couple of miles down the road.
I highly recommend this rental, and am also very satisfied with the communication with the owners.

Unique working fishing village within the town of Kennebunkport. Enjoy a walk to the pier and watch the lobster boats come in from a day of work. Or relax and enjoy the sun setting behind beautiful Goat Island Light House. Spend the day shopping and dining on the water of popular Kennebunkport. View the beautiful art work of local and international artists at galleries galore. Antiques or auctions anyone? In need of practice for that golf swing? Many golf facilities of various levels. Feeling sea worthy? Enjoy a whale watching or fishing excursion, or just tour the beautiful coastline. So much to do, so little time!
