This is more than 'a vacation rental'. This is where our family enjoys summer together-time. There is something for everyone: from shopping at Bean's, to easy access to museums and theaters. Within minutes one can be at a glorious sandy beach or on the golf course, picking blueberries on the trail, or sailing right off our dock. Mom and Dad like to kayak and we can slide the boats right in from our own float. Sebasco Harbor Resort offers all resort amenities and fun kids events like special pirate cruises and ice cream making!

reunion with family

  • 5 of 5
We selected this VRBO for a reunion with our children and grandchild as it provided all the essentials for the multi generation vacation. The photos and description were accurate. The property was clean and well maintained and the owner was there to greet us and answered all our questions. The nearby Sebasco resort provided entertainment for the grandson (pool, pirate cruise, ice cream) as well as the adults (bowls, boat cruise). The house itself was just what we required. Four bedrooms, two baths, modern kitchen with pantry with most of the cooking utensils required by a discerning cook. The living room was large and inviting while the porch with the large table was great for jigsaw puzzles and other games. The house was well stocked for games and toys for children. The front lawn with the four Adirondack chairs (plus additional outdoors chairs) were great for relaxing i the sun while the jetty at the waterfront was great to relax and view water activities and kayak around the bay. A really great feature was the closeness to a local sandy beach and to the lobster fishermen where fresh lobsters could be purchased at minimal price. A large lobster cooking pot with gas burner made cooking a number of lobsters a breeze. Would recommend this property to others.

Fantastic experience at this lovely property

  • 5 of 5
My family of four (including a toddler and an infant) thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful cottage.

The view of the ocean is breathtaking and the backyard a joy to roam around in with my older boy. We were able to swim right off the dock (not as chilly as I expected), which is a 15 second walk down a beautiful wooded path from the backyard. There is no beach, but you can tan on the dock and low tide uncovers the sandy bottom of the bay so you can walk around collecting shells and finding hermit crabs.

We felt very private even though a full-service resort is a 10 minute walk away through woods, a small golf course and more oceanfront properties. We enjoyed the resort's antique saltwater pool, having an ice cream at "The Patio" or a quick bite at the Ledges pub.

The house itself is very comfortable, the kitchen is practical and freshly renovated and the bedrooms are accommodating. I could not think of one single thing I would have needed that wasn't there for us to use, whether it's everything you need to cook a lobster diner, fresh towels and linens, tv, internet, board games, books, etc, etc.

I saw that another reviewer call this property "definitely not luxurious" but comfortable. Perhaps this was before the kitchen reno, because I find that the expression "country chic" perfectly defines this place, which to me certainly qualifies as a version of "luxury".

If you are looking at this property, you are probably seeking a typical Maine vacation involving beachcombing, looking for shells, earting at lobster houses, sailing and cute houses with painted floors. If that is the case, you are in the right place and this is the right house.

Thank you Briane!

Owner's Response: No one needs a vacation more than families with young children. We try to lighten their load by supplying all the baby equipment, from toddler gates to booster seats, cribs and high chairs, books & toys, even baby life jackets!
This house is appropriate for all ages and we try to think of every amenity.

Wonderful time in Maine with fantastic hospitality

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have stayed at this property (along with our extended family) many times over the past several years, and have always been impressed by the owners' warm welcome and attentiveness to our comfort. They could not have been more helpful and responsive to questions and concerns! This year we were travelling with our baby and the owners made sure that the appropriate safeguards were in place and consulted with us to ensure that we had everything we needed for him. The house is not luxurious but was exactly what we hoped to find in a Maine cottage (it's exactly like the description and the photographs, with the possible exception of some new bedspreads here and there!) It is always clean and comfortable and spacious enough to handle a large crowd quite easily! There is an amazing view from the front screen porch which we enjoyed every night at dinner (the table easily accommodated the 10 of us and could have accommodated even more!). Though we didn't use the dock ourselves this year (because of the baby), other family members did have a great time and noted that the dock looks brand-new. We have also noted upgrades over the years (to the fridge, for example, and new linens and beds have appeared in various rooms) and have always gotten great sleep with wonderful ocean breezes blowing through the windows and comfortable new mattresses. We hope to continue coming back to this lovely property again and again as it has become a great place for yearly family reunions to allow our children to spend time with their cousins.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to be able to accommodate small children and try to anticipate families' needs. WE have a full size crib plus a pack & play, safety gates, a high chair and booster seats. We even have a toddler sized picnic table and wee beach chairs! And baby sized spoons! Plus there is a cupboard of games and toys and plenty of children's videos.

Fantastic property for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5
My extended family spent a week at this home, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The house is charming, and very comfortable. Our favorite amenities include an eat-in kitchen for rainy days, screened in porch dining on nice days, comfortable beds, large washer and dryer, two full baths, TERRIFIC view, large level and shaded yard for playing wiffleball with the grandchildren, a dock for swimming - we loved this place. It was clean, comfortable and well-furnished. See the pictures for exactly what you get.

The owner was wonderful to work with throughout the process, always available by phone or email, patient with our many questions!

I would indeed recommend this property to a friend, and we are already talking about when we can come back.

Wonderful Oceanfront Maine Vacation Cottage

  • 5 of 5
We just love this cottage! It sits on the ocean, with its own dock (and two kayaks, and perfect protected waters for kayaking!). The sunrises pour into the bedrooms (along with beautiful ocean views and fresh air). The screened-in porch, with a dining table that can seat 12, is fabulous. We've been meeting another family for summer vacations at this house for five years. We always manage to comfortably accommodate both families and other assorted friends, and we always have a wonderful time.

The proximity to Sebasco resort allows the children to bike to and from the ice cream shop, gift store, candle-pin bowling, and the saltwater pool. Many of us golf, either on the family course, or the 9-hole course. Of course, we always have a game of lawn bowling at the resort too!

Popham beach and Fort Popham are only 6 miles away, which is an easy bike ride or quick car ride. We enjoyed morning walks along that whole stretch of beach each morning this summer. Only the kids were hardy enough to swim in the ocean at that time of day though!

While rustic in some ways (no dishwasher or granite countertops), the cottage has cable, broadband, two full bathrooms, a nice gas grill, and a washer and dryer. The beds are fitted with high quality linens, towels are abundant, and the kitchen is well-stocked with cooking equipment. The owners are terrific, and always helpful. We'll keep going back!

Way over-priced old shack

  • 1 of 5
This run-down place has NO air, NO dishwasher and was likely a poor place to stay even in the 1940s or 50s, which is probably the last time anthing was done to it. While the Sebasco resort has lovely activities for children, there are many, much better places to stay than this awful house. Holes in the floor, fungus around the bathtubs, terrible beds, broken plaster - and even a mouse in the house!

I have used VRBO for many years and have been very please until this experience. I would NOT recommend this abominable property to anyone.

Owner's Response: As is clear from our photos and many, many positive recent reviews, our property is not a "run down old shack". Yes, it is a 50 year old classic Maine cottage, directly on Casco Bay. Our guests choose to stay here year after year because of its charm and because of what they refer to as our excellent hospitality. Renovations have of course been done through the years and additional ones are planned for this winter. Our beds have new mattresses and linens, ( none more than four years old), and our property manager quickly addresses any concerns. For example the "hole in the floor" was a broken slat on a heating vent which was repaired within two days. The "broken plaster" was an eight inch crack just above the baseboard, which is not unusual in a 50 year old cottage. There is no fungus around the tubs and the entire cottage is cleaned by a professional cleaning crew between each stay.
This particular guest complained that we are not on a golf course and have no air conditioning or dishwasher. She is right. We do not have those amenities nor do we state in our VRBO listing that we do. We are actually waterfront, which is clear from the photos on the listing. Her daughter had made the two week reservation and admitted to me that she "assumed" that we had those amenities and that she had confused our listing with other property listings. When we realized how disappointed they were not to be staying in a high end contemporary property, we offered to release them from their lease for the second week and refund their money for that week. However, they chose to stay.
It is unfortunate that her disappointment clouded her enjoyment of her family vacation. Perhaps she needs to take more care when selecting a future rental property to find one that more closely meets her personal expectations and desires.
