We are Steve and Gillian Draleau and we live in Massachusetts when we are not enjoying our home in Maine.

Gillian Draleau purchased this house in 2005

My husband grew up going to Goose Rocks beach each year. When I came here from Ireland and we got married we both enjoyed the beauty of the coast of Maine and most especially Goose Rocks Beach and the Kennebunkport area. After many years of looking we found our ideal place to build in 2005. It is less than 2 hours from our home in Massachusetts and we spend as much time as we can here in our haven or home away from home.

We love walking to the beach especially after dinner. We enjoy all the wonderful restaurants that are so close to us and walking around 'The Port' (Kennebunkport). It never gets old and we are always discovering something new. We enjoy going to Portland to catch a Seadogs game or live theater. LL Bean is a must at least twice a year for Steve

Perfect for family vacation and sportives

  • 5 of 5
The owner is available and helpful. The description on site and photos are very accurate.Very comfortable, quiet and spacious. Near Goose Rocks Beach (easy to access and park). Lots of facilities nearby. I enjoyed riding my bike in the area every morning and the beach in the afternoon. The kids played basketball and soccer in the yard. We enjoyed cooking lobster and seafoods. Lots of good shack for food in Cape Porpoise and Kennebunk. I strongly recommend this place and we already plan to return next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. I am glad that you were able to take advantage of all the great routes around the house to ride your bike. There is a very nice hiking, mountain bike trail about 2 miles from the house. We look forward to having back again next year to discover even more.

Large house, great yard, short drive to the beach

  • 5 of 5
The yellow house was exactly as pictured and described. We had a great time eating on the screened in porch, lounging on the hammock and reading in all sorts of comfortable chairs.

Goose Rocks Beach was fantastic with tides that exposed at least a quarter mile of beach and never more than a few dozen people.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere that we have tried to create. There is so much to see and do in the area, or even doing nothing at all but relaxing. Goose Rocks is really a gem and will always be our favorite beach. You are welcome to come back anytime it was a pleasure having you rent from us.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5
Wow! This house was perfect for our extended family get together. The house was clean and just as described and as pictured. The owners were extremely hospitable. Kindly provided a booster seat for the house, so we didn't have to lug one, called to check in and make sure the house was up to snuff, and was super responsive to my several small suggestions to improve things. We loved the open lay out of the downstairs. The large bedrooms, with comfortable beds. There was a huge lawn for playing and star watching. The garage was chock full of useful beach stuff: large umbrella, sand toys, boogie boards. Just flat out really happy with our stay here.

The house was excellently located. Just a quick 2 minute drive to a Goose Rock beach, which is lovely and frankly a lot nicer than the Kennebunkport beach proper. An easy drive into town for some of the best ice cream I've ever had (Rococo Artisan Ice Cream. Yum! Went several times). And set back from the road, so it was very quiet and peaceful.

Thanks for a great stay. Would be so happy to go back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I am glad that you and your family had a wonderful vacation. Goose Rocks has always been our favorite beach, I am glad that you agree. It was a pleasure renting to you, I was happy to help you with the booster seat. I hope that if you come east again that you will stay with us. I love to hear that the guests enjoy all that the house and the area has to offer. I will have to check out Rococo as I have not been yet. I appreciate your feedback on how to make the property even more enjoyable. We will be adding central air conditioning for summer of 2014.

A Great House in a Great Area to Vacation...

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at the "big yellow house in Maine"! The house is beautiful and well maintained. Gillian really goes out of her way to communicate hospitality. She is promptly available by phone, texting, and email to help with anything. The house is as nicely decorated as the pictures show. The beds are very comfortable - plenty of room for our family of 6. There is much. to do at the house and a great deal in the area - the beach, the rocky shore, picturesque village with seaside themed restaurants and shops, plenty of areas for family walks, friendly and helpful locals etc., We enjoyed 2 day trips to Boston, too, which is an easy 1.5 hours away. Portland and LL Bean are nearby. My wife and mother of our 4 girls just smiled the other day and said, "I love this place!" The listing is very accurate. We have have stayed at several VRBO locations before and this one is first rate.

Owner's Response: I am so glad that you and your family enjoyed your Maine vacation. You experienced so much during your stay. I am glad that you got to see all the great beaches and sites around here, and used the house as the central location for other trips. I hope that you come back soon, it was a pleasure dealing with you.

A wonderful stay in a charming, clean and relaxing home with northeast charm!

  • 5 of 5
I loved staying here! Maybe it was because of the fact that my entire family was together for the first time in years, or that the house was a simple 1.56 mile jog to the beach or the accuracy in the description of the listing. The owner was so amazing and helpful and made a short family vacation a reality.

The photos are quite accurate and the house was immaculate. There was a nice bottle of merlot left for us and we enjoyed the screened in porch for morning coffee and evening chat. I would certainly recommend this place. You can take a run right to the beach or have a gourmet dinner at Earth right across the street. Its a short distance to the docks for amazing lobster rolls and shopping in town. The perfect distance to everything.

I recommend taking a sail on the Pineapple Ketch, dinner at Mabel's, and renting a bike or running. It was amazing and if you're looking for a nice relaxing time, its a win.

Owner's Response: We loved having you stay also and I am so happy that you had a wonderful family reunion/vacation. Thank you for the great recommendations for things to do and places to go. I try and keep the house book updated with current information and the guests are super at filling in the guest book with all of their experiences. I love reading it and seeing things that I have not done yet. There is always great new restaurants opening each year. The people who own Earth also own "The Tides Inn" on Goose Rocks beach and it is a great place for a sunset dinner or appetizer and drink. Hope to see you and your family back again soon. Your Mom is also a delight to work with.

Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
This rental was remarkable! Clean and neat! Tons of room for the whole family to spread out. The children had plenty of space and even a loft in which to entertain themselves. The screened in porch was a huge bonus and we enjoyed many mornings and evenings outside. The house is 1 mile or less to the beach and very accessible to all areas of interest in Kennebunkport. This house will NOT disappoint. Way better and bigger than I imagined based on the photos and reviews. We cannot wait to visit again. The owners were also very friendly and receptive to any questions. They made our stay a huge success!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure having you stay at the house. We would love to have you back anytime, we have been so fortunate with all the amazing people who rent our house. Many people say the same thing that the house is even nicer than the photos show. We want to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible as everyone deserves a stress free, relaxing vacation to recharge. The screen porch is our favorite also, we live there when we are using the house, breakfast, lunch and dinner and of course a sunset cocktail with family and friends.

One of the most pristine areas of Maine with many beautiful sandy beaches and top class restaurants. Many lobster retailers in the immediate area. Enjoy a sunset cocktail at several locations in Kennebunkport or at Goose Rocks beach 'Tides Inn'.

Goose Rocks Beach is a hidden jewel that has always been our favorite beach due to long sandy stretches for walks, safe swimming for children and of course exploring the island at low tide.

We are30 minutes from Portland with many attractions such as the Old Port, which is great for an evening or late afternoon stroll. We love to wander through the unique stores and eat at one of the many restaurants. The Portland Sea Dogs baseball team is a wonderful night/day out for the whole family. Tickets and food are very inexpensive, many well known major league players can be seen there from time to time. Visit LL Beans' flag ship store in Freeport under an hours drive. Our guest book has many resources for whatever it is you like to do on vacation. Did I mention great golf courses...
