ONE LONG BEACH SETS THE STANDARD FOR VACATION RENTALS!

Stayed: October 2010
Our 3 generation family reunion of 9 (ages 6-64) vacationed here from Oct. 11-14, 2010. We timed our visit to enjoy maximum fall foliage (which didn't disappoint) since children and grandchildren live in Pacific NW (with mostly pine trees.) The fact that it was off-season meant even better rental rates - a bonus! Although some shops/eateries had closed for the season, there remained more than enough open to choose from and enjoy.
As the saying goes, "Location, location, location!" The location was wonderful-a very short walk to the beach. playground and main street with the shops. The famed Nubble Lighthouse was close by - an easy walk / jog. The town of York is a great midpoint between Boston (we walked the Freedom Trail) and, in the opposite direction, Portland (lighthouse and more.) In between were many charming towns and attractions. There was so much more to do than we had time for.
How many ways are to say "IMMACULATE?" The "clean freaks" in the family all agreed that the Carriage House passed their white glove test with flying colors. The floors, walls, kitchen, bathrooms, dishes, linens - everything was spotless. There were no odors or cover-up scents of room fresheners or cleaning sprays. As two members of the family have MCS - multiple chemical sensitivities-the issue of chemical "triggers" is always a concern. There was no problem at all.
The Carriage House has 3 separate floors - each with a full bath. It worked out just great for our 3 generations! The decor is lovely. The furnishings and fixtures are quality - the kind you would choose for your own home and not expect, but be delighted to find, in a rental. The kitchen is completely equipped with multiple sets of service. Appliances, including washer and dryer, all worked great. A peek in the window of the other units indicated that each place meets the owner's high standards.
We had no issues at all that we needed to contact the owners for. However, there is no doubt we could have easily reached them if needed as they left multiple contact info. They were both generous and kind to work with.
Without hesitation - we will (and already have) recommended this wonderful vacation rental. Thank you to the owners!
