Everything You Want

  • 5 of 5
This is literally the perfect location for a relaxing family vacation. The view is truly breathtaking—totally unobscured and just amazing. The home itself has everything you'd want. It's extremely well-maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped, the beds are comfortable, the washer/dryer are great to have, the table set and lounge chairs on the deck are comfortable, and there are two outdoor grills on the upper and lower decks and campfire pit in the backyard. There's a stereo that has a hookup for your iPhone or iPods. The wagon with the beach chairs was perfect to drag down to the beaches that are within walking distance of the home (there are two).

The home itself is about 20 minutes from downtown Kinnebunkport, which makes it easy to get to shopping, restaurants, etc (it's about 30-40 minutes from Portland Airport).

We had a few issues upon arrival (the gas grill and TVs didn't work), but the owner, Jeremy, was very responsive and worked with us to resolve the issues. Would also say that this is not a 3 bedroom home—there are two bedrooms and then two bunkbeds in the hallway leading into the bedroom/bathroom area.

All in all, though, this is such a great place to spend a vacation. It's great for families with kids, great for intergenerational travel, great for friends getting together. We can't wait to come back.

Better Than We Imagined

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house for 2 weeks in April. My husband and I brought our 3 young children with us, and there was plenty of room for everyone. The views are beautiful, and it is an easy walk to a private beach. The house was in great condition. The yard was bigger than we thought it would be, and the kids had a lot of space to play. The neighbors are very friendly. We were able to drive up to Portland and down to Portsmouth during our sta,y as the house is conveniently located between the 2 cities. The owner was very easy to work with, and the rental price was very reasonable. We can't wait to go back!

Best Family Vacation We've Ever Had

Best Family Vacation We've Ever Had
  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this house the week of July 4th 2013 and it was, hands-down, the best vacation we've ever had. Me, my husband, our 20-month old daughter, and my parents stayed for one full week and I had a huge pregnant belly. So, you'll trust me when I say the beds were very comfortable. All the bedrooms are downstairs which is nice for when you want to take a nap or have a little one who needs to take a nap. We set-up a pack-n-play near the bunk beds and there was plenty of room. You can hear the ocean waves the whole time. The view from upstairs is truly spectacular. We kept saying to each other, "Please pinch me, are we really here!?" We walked to the beach nearby pretty much everyday and the little L.L. Bean wagon was awesome to carry all of our stuff, our little girl, and sometimes, me! It was muggy and humid but the breeze coming off the ocean just cooled everything. Luckily, there were fans in the rooms as well. I was concerned about not having air-conditioning being 8-months pregnant, but the fans were perfect. We sat out on the balcony every day and relaxed, read books to our little girl, and took in the ocean view. Everything we needed was there. I loved that the linens and towels were provided -- it would have been a pain to pack all of that. Even the lighting and furniture was perfect. You can tell that the owners put a lot of thought into the decor -- it reminds me of a something you would see in Pottery Barn. The location was perfect -- we were able to drive to Kennebunkport to go shopping and have dinner one day, and my parents and husband took a beautiful bike ride (recommended by Jeremy, the owner) around Biddeford Pool. At night we would all try to stay up and chat but would be exhausted from all the fun we had during the day. We all felt so at HOME in this cottage. We wish we could go back this year but we had our baby (a boy!) and decided to invite my husband's parents as well so this sweet place will not be large enough but I am honestly having trouble finding anything remotely as wonderful. It really is a DREAM COTTAGE!

Perfect property

  • 5 of 5
This was the second year in a row that we stayed at this house in October - the house is perfect for a small family. We brought our 2 small toddlers and the house is immaculate but also child friendly. The view from the deck is remarkable and the fire pit outside is a nice way to spend the evening. Our children loved the bike rides to the beaches in Biddeford Pool and also the playground on the beach in Kennebunk. The childrens museum in Portland is another great way to spend the da and its only an hour away. Cant wait to stay here again!!!

Perfection

  • 5 of 5
Everything about this place was as advertised, even exceeding expectations. The cottage was cozy and clean. We brought our toddler, and he loved exploring the the beach and nearby hiking trail. The location is perfect, with close proximity to the shops in Kennebunkport and downtown Portland (daytrips to Portland were the unexpected highlight of our trip). We cannot wait to visit here again!

Restful Getaway

  • 5 of 5
The house is a perfect beach cottage: it has everything you need for a relaxing stay. No convenience is missed, while still preserving the beach cottage vibe. The house is beautifully decorated and maintained; care is evident everywhere you look.The grounds are beautiful and the surrounding area is as well. The view of the ocean, the sound of the waves, the smell of the seaspray and the beach roses all make this an exceptional vacation spot. The nature walks to Timber Point are a great way to see some of the wildlife preserve that surrounds Granite Point - and get some exercise too. I highly recommend Goldthwaite's/Pool Lobster for souvenirs as well as the lobster roll and lobster dinners. Everyone there is friendly and the food is amazing! If blueberry cobbler is on the menu when you stop in, make sure to give that a try as well. I also recommend the Lobster Shack at Two Lights State Park and the state park itself. A trip north to the Coastal Maine Botannical Gardens near Boothbay so you can idenitfy all the beautiful roses, peonies and dahlias that grow so beautifully in this area is somethign I suggest as well. Kennebunkport is great for beaches and more shopping and, if you insist, alternative dining choices. I have recommended this home to my friends and family and am planning to return next year myself. I have never had a more relaxing and enjoyable vacation!
