Making Memories - What A Magical Place!

  • 5 of 5
Overbank is the most magical place you and your family will ever vacation. The home is located so that guests enjoy both privacy and majestic oceans views. The house is surrounded by gardens that would make Martha Stewart jealous, and the beach is short walk through beds of blooming flowers.The kids will say the yard is perfect for back-hand springs, cartwheels, and soccer ball dribbling. While the guys still talk about grilling dinner and relaxing "man-time" on the Garden Terrace. Mom's in our crowd love the large dining room table because we could all eat together with feeling crowded. We all enjoyed having four showers and plenty of hot water which was extremely helpful after a long, hot day at the beach.

The home is spacious, clean, and filled with everything you could possible imagine you would need on a beach vacation. Skip, the owner is a wonderful person who takes pride in his home. Jen, his House Manager, is one of those people whose personality is genuine. Her knowledge of the community and her funny demeanor will make you feel like you have know her for years. Overbank is truly is a place where you will forget the craziness of life, and remember to stop and pay attention because great memories are what life is all about.

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!
