A VACATION WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

  • 5 of 5
Our whole experience with Skip and Overbank was fantastic. The location of the house is perfect, with so many wonderful towns in NH and Maine a quick drive away. The beach and zoo in York cannot be beat if you have children! The view from the house is gorgeous, and it was incredible to wake up to the sound of the ocean every morning. This was our first family vacation and we had such a blast that we hope to make it a tradition for years to come. We highly recommend staying at Overbank, and promise you will leave with many wonderful memories.

A PERFECT WEEK IN YORK HARBOR

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place for a family reunion. I've been renting vacation homes for 20+ years for our bi-annual reunion and your place, by far, is the best. There is plenty of space to spread out. The grounds and view are spectacular and the house - - comfortable, gracious and causal/ non-fussy enough to feel at home. York Harbor was a great choice for everyone in our three generation family group and Overbank Above -the-Beach was the perfect place to enjoy it all..We had a great time and are already talking about renting it again in the summer of 2015.

WOW! PERFECT PLACE FOR A FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
First, I would to say that Skip, the owner is very easy to work with. All the information needed and booking was well organized and easy. Upon our arrival we where met by the house manager and shown around the property. Overbank is a wonderful place.

We arrived on the Saturday after the 4th of July and were treated to the York Harbor fireworks show. Thw Adirondacks you see in the picture provided an amazing view. We are a group of ten ( 2 families of 5). The house is well kept and provided all the creature comforts of home. We had everything you could possibly need. We had a couple of very hot days, but if you use the fans provided you can keep the house cool.

The location of this house is superb. We are new to visiting Maine. I am so glad we chose York Harbor. What a great town. The history of York Harbor is so interesting. The house made a great jumping off point for our many adventures. However, we did enjoy the beach which is about a 1 min walk down a picturesque path to the beach. The kids loved that. Overbank's gardens are incredible. There is so much within walking distance or a short drive. We drove to Brown's ice cream way to many times. We also bought way too many lobsters off the dock from the local boats.

I doubt you will be disappointed with a stay at Overbank. It is a great place for families or a large group. We loved it and were sad to leave.

PERFECT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
My family rented this home for the week of my wedding. It was absolutely wonderful - I loved the location (right across the street from Harbor Beach & next door to the York Harbor Inn). The views from the front 4 bedrooms are amazing! All the details of this home are perfect - I loved the fire pit, seating on the front patio, 2 living rooms, huge dining room. The house and grounds are well maintained & the owner was great to work with (very responsive and accommodating to a variety of requests). I can't wait to rent again!

WONDERFUL STAY FOR FAMILY WEDDING

  • 5 of 5
We rented this house so that we could be together with our grown children for my niece's wedding. This property is terrific, a beautiful setting and spacious! It is furnished with everything you'd need, and it was very clean. The wedding was in Dover, NH and the reception at the Red Barn in South Berwick, Maine (which I'd also recommend for a wedding). The location was perfect, and York Harbor is a really charming area. We had a dinner at the York Harbor Inn almost next door, which was excellent. The owner was very responsive and professional to deal with. All in all, our family loved our all to short stay there and we'd highly recommend it.

PERFECT FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This was our first family holiday in the US and what a property and location we chose - just perfect.
The house is excellent and very well appointed. Perfect location for trips to Ogunguit (fantastic beach), Kennebunkport, Portsmouth NH and Boston is within reach by train for a day trip.
The house is also in a perfect spot for the local amenities - cross the road to York Harbour beach and the York Harbour Inn is just next door!
