Family has great time at the Hide Away

  • 5 of 5
First time our family vacationed at Old Orchard. The Hide Away was an easy walk to the beach and pier. Front porch was ideal for morning coffee with the newspaper. Side-yard was petite but contained two gas grilles we utilized extensively (note: both need to be match-started).
House was roomy enough for our large family and the downstairs apartment gave my wife and I at least the pretense of privacy. It was 90 most of our vacation week so the abundance of AC's proved invaluable ( two of the ceiling fans had very shaky blades).
A terrific location and vacation. One of the televisions upstairs seemed inoperable but it was a minor glitch.
Plan to definitely rent again!

The Hide Away

  • 4 of 5
We found our stay at "The Hide Away" very pleasant and just what our family needed to relax and enjoy the sunshine and the beach......and yet close enough for those who wished to go to the heart of the 'action' down street. There were 10 adults (5 couples) so we did have to find alternative ways to make due with the 2 bedrooms that were for children. With the use of the air mattress downstairs we made do without any complaints from anyone. Even though it is an older home (lots of characater!) it is well maintained and clean. We could not get over how well equipped both units were. There was not one dish or utensil that we had to go out and buy. We bbq'd a couple times with the gas grill provided and also used the provided wagon/carts to tote our (and theirs) chairs, coolers, etc to the beach. Having the glass closed in front porch was also a real plus. I would definitely recommend it our friends or anyone reading this review. We love Old Orchard Beach and renting this house for a week was the way to go....so much better than a hotel.

Quaint rental property

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at this location during our vacationin June 2007. The house was very clean, except for the enclosed porch...the windows had been open for a while, apparently, and the furniture was heavily covered with dust. Other than that, it was very clean. It is an older home that has been updated, so those who require the latest & greatest need not apply.
We were greeted by a property manager within 15-20 minutes of our arrival and she also checked in on us twice during our stay.
The house is two blocks from the beach, as described, and just a short walk to the Pier. Plenty of room, nice size kitchen, and a bath & a half in the main house. The finished/furnished basement is a separate rental unit, so the potential for decreased privacy exists. In our case, we had the entire house, which provided ample room and an additional bathroom/shower and living room, but this unit is not accessible from inside the house. In order for those occupying the basement to join us and vice versa, we had to go outside around the back of the house. Might not be a good idea for some situations. In our case, we had our 20-year-old and 17 year-old staying down there...old enough to be ok without constant supervision, but if we didn't want them locked out and wanted them to be able to get in the house, we had to leave the backdoor unlocked all night.
No central A/C, which I realize normally is not an issue in Maine. However, it was in the 90's when we were there and the window units could not keep up. They kept freezing up and would shut off, which meant an hour or two without A/C while ithey defrosted.
I'd suggest an additional trash can or two outside. We set our trash out on trash day, but still had an overflowing can by the time we left. Since the house holds so many people, one can just isn't enough for a week's stay.
Unfortunately, bed linens and towels are not provided, although there is a washer & dryer in the kitchen. There were 6 of us, and I only packed 2 bath towels per person....those 12 towels plus bed sheets filled an entire suitcase! We did not have room for more in our vehicle, and therefore, did laundry every other day. Not what I really want to do on my vacation! You can get towels and linens provided, but the charges are steep.
The location was nice.....not in the heart of a bustling city, but within short driving distance to several hot spots like Kennebunk. Neighborhood was mostly calm & quiet with the exception of some rowdy teenagers across the street. I'm no prude, but their LOUD language bothered even me.
Outside shower was nice for cleaning off after being at the beach.
The closet and electrical set-up in the smaller upstairs bedroom left a little to be desired. 3rd bedroom upstairs is a child's room, and is not really usable for anything but.

All in all, the house is nice, clean and the owner and manager were both very friendly and helpful.
