We just got back from OOB and rented this property. The house was clean, comfortable and plenty of space. Loved that we got to bring our dog. The kitchen is fully loaded with everything you can ever need. Owners were very accommodating and friendly. The back yard has a great seating area with a fire pit! The house is only a few blocks from a beautiful beach. This was a great experience and a great house! The only thing that would be nice is either a hose outside or an outside shower....we felt bad bringing the sand in the house :O. But perfect in every other way!
We had a fantastic stay at this wonderful home. Our group included 8 adults and one child and there was plenty of space for all included. The owners were accomodating in every aspect of our visit and we look forward to spending many more summer vacations at this memorable location. We had a problem with a very LOUD box spring in one of our rooms and the owners came and ordered up all new bedding for that room within the first few hours of contact, These individuals are out to please their tenants and we will be regular visitors in the future. As a matter of fact, my daughter and soon to be son in law were engaged during our stay and I could not thing of a better environment for this to have occured. This is a rare gem for this location!
My family stayed at this awesome house Fourth of July week. The house was spotless, bright and comfy!!! We had plenty of room in the living room for everyone to get together, at some point in the vacation we did have 12 people and 1 dog and there was plenty of room. It was great there was a washer and dryer and A/C. The Kitchen had room for 7 to eat and then a large table in the nice addition, so we all could eat together. The Owner stopped in and was very friendly and when we had one guest who blew the fuse and the A/C stopped working, she came right over to fix it. On top of that she even left the basement unlocked (which had there personal items) just great honest/trustworthy folks. The walk down to the beach is a breeze, coming back up the little hill at the end of the day is another story!!! Just got us all motivated to loose a little weight before next time. We would recommend this rental to any large family that wants a nice clean house, lots of parking, nice backyard, close to the beach and downtown. I personally Loved this rental because I got to bring my 12 year old yellow Lab Maggie!!!!! Thanks for a great Vacation

We wouldnt have changed a thing. In this house you really feel right at home. Thank you Michelle for everything.
We are looking forward to next year!!!!
We just returned from renting this property this morning.
We are a family of 5 who rented with a family of 7. We had two small dogs with us and 6 children who ranged from the ages of 10-18.
This property was spacious enough to accomodate all of us without tripping over each other. Between the lanai, breakfast bar and kitchen table, we were all able to eat meals together. The washer and dryer appeared new and were great in helping us keep up with all the dirty towels and bathing suits. There was also a clothes line out back to hang up wet items. The house was well stocked - kitchen items for baking, a latte maker, plenty of cookware and bakeware, bath towel, beach towels, and even items such as boogie boards, chairs and coolers to use at the beach. Internet service was fast, and there were plenty of games, books and movies as well.
The property is located approximately 2-3 blocks from the beach. It is then around a 1/2-1 mile walk to the Old Orchard Pier area. Along the way, there are stores and places to get supplies, along with a nice minature golf area. You can see the fireworks on Thursday night from the balcony! It is within walking distance to many places, but is also located in an area that is quiet at night.
Michelle checked in on us on a couple of occasions. She was great! She was helpful and accomodating. She even recommended a local place for us to get some delicious lobster!
We would definately recommend this property and look forward to returning next year!
Great experience! I rented this home for my family in July. Our group included 7 adults, 1 toddler, and 1 dog. Most of them live in Texas, and they were delighted to escape the heat for Maine's cool, coastal breeze. I was hard-pressed to find a home this large that was dog friendly, well appointed, not too far from the beach, and priced reasonably. My 60-year-old father (who ended up paying for everything) commented several times that "this was perfect!" We especially enjoyed the updated kitchen, fire pit in the back yard, and large living room for the toddler to play. I was happy to see a bedroom downstairs for my 85-year-old grandmother, while the rest of us used the 3 bedrooms upstairs.
We had a blast in Old Orchard Beach. It's a dense, action-packed, family-friendly town, yet the beach is so massive that we never minded the crowds. Low tide is spectacular with miles of soft sand. Send kids to the arcade by the Pier, or walk a few minutes from the house to Pirate's Cove mini golf. Plenty to do; we never watched TV once. The town is not as hoity-toity as some of the surrounding communities. Delicious, fried seafood abounds, and we also enjoyed fine dining at The Landmark and Joseph's by the Sea (request oceanview terrace). If you want to burn some cash at high-end shops, drive a little ways south to Kennebunkport.
The house is set far enough away from downtown to escape the noise, although you might hear traffic going by. The beach is a few minutes walk down the street, and you'll pass Hogan's market on the way - great for simple breakfast or lobster rolls. As for fleas mentioned in a previous review: I didn't notice any in the house, but I'm sure they're all around town. It's a fact of life in New England. I live in nearby NH, and our mild winter last year never gave us a good, hard freeze to kill the fleas and ticks; all you can do is treat your pets. Michelle mentioned she used an Orkin treatment, and I'm sure that's helpful, but if you walk your dog around town, he or she must have flea and tick protection. The same goes for any other town on the coast of Maine, or Cape Cod for that matter.
I found the owner friendly, accommodating, accessible, and laid back. She lives nearby and made herself available to give recommendations or address any problems. She strikes me as someone who would work with you should any issues arise.
7 Miles of White Sand Beach, amusement park, mini golf and arcade within walking distance, water park, movie theater a short drive. great downtown area includes lots of shops, restaurants, a boardwalk. fireworks on the weekends, ocean park theater, concerts, great seafood and so much more.
Golf: Dunegrass and Biddeford/Saco courses nearby
