My wife and her family have been visiting Ogunquit for over 30 years and we could not have found a better place to stay than the Island House. Our week at the house was fabulous! The ocean views from every room in the house, including the very large wrap around porch, are spectacular. Everyone in our group (of seven) loved the house and its location, and it was great for both the adults and kids. The adults in our group spent many afternoons before dinner having a glass of wine on the porch or on the lawn overlooking Perkins Cove. The kids loved the bunk beds in their bedroom and being able to have the internet access throughout the house. Listening to the early morning sounds of lobster boats leaving the Cove or being able to watch the sunrise from our bedroom was fabulous. Shops and restaurants are right around the corner, but seem far away once you drive past the gate up to the house. We loved our time at the Island House and will be back in the future.

Great house and location for a large extended family

  • 5 of 5
My extended family rented this house over the July 4th week this summer and had a wonderful time. Ralph, the owner, was on site to meet us and explain things and responsive to any questions we had during the week. The house is located on a small hill at the far end of Perkins Cove on a court with a few other houses. It had plenty of space including a huge kitchen with dining space for all 12 of us, a large covered porch to watch the boats go by, a large grill and 5+ modern bathrooms. We loved the location and being able to walk down the small hill to the shops and restaurants at Perkins Cove and the Marginal Way. One hint: If you plan to go to the beach (by car or by trolley, which has a stop in Perkins Cove), bring beach towels and chairs. We truly enjoyed our time at the Island House and hope to be back again soon!

This is as good as it gets

The island house is located on a small island at the very end of Perkins Cove Ogunquit..For those who have not been to Ogunquit, it is a beautiful, quaint and upscale coastal town a couple of hours north of Boston. The town boasts a beautiful large all sand beach, a variety of interesting shops, and a number of impressive art galleries.

You can also enjoy dozens of outstanding restaurants and places to grab a cocktail. But if you rent this house, you probably won't because there is no better view in Oqunquit, and no place more inviting than the many decks on this home where every evening we enjoyed drinks and takeout from the comfort of this home. Believe it or not, a restaurant, even the best of them, seemed a step down.

The home itself is beautiful inside and out. The owner pays great attention to detail. The gardens are exquisite, the beds and furniture modern and comfortable, and the kitchen is a cooks dream. The house is stocked with all basic necessities and more. (paper towels, laundry detergent in both laundry rooms etc) Even the art, hanging on the walls is quite special.

Three of the five bedrooms have bathrooms, the master bedroom has a sliding glass door leading to a huge and private ocean view deck. THe master bath has both a Jacuzzi tub and a multi-jet walk-in shower. I have stayed in Ogunquit many times and in a number of fine inns and hotels and the master bedroom at the Island House easily beats them all - by a lot!

Oh and by the way, we held our wedding the day after we arrived. Twenty-five people joined us for a wonderful day. The house is absolutely a perfect place to hold a wedding and a perfect place to honeymoon. The owner suggested a caterer who was perfect. The house easily sleeps a dozen people and our young adult children and a few special friends spent some time with us after the wedding. During the day we walked on the Marginal Way (Google it - you will love it), or strolled the 100 yards or so into Perkins Cove to grab a lobster roll, or an iced coffee and muffin and then perused the shops. I also grabbed a couple of rounds of golf at the Cape Neddick Golf Course less than 5 miles away.

Elegant, romantic, relaxing and something special, the Island House is as good as it gets.

Great Choice!!!

  • 5 of 5
Rented the place for a long weekend in mid September. We were hosting a small wedding and it was perfect. Apparently the first gay wedding the owner had in his home. Could not have been any nicer. Rooms were great, the views were spectacular, and the place was very comfoirtable. Had the reception catered by the Village Market, in town. Chef Tripp was amazing. We also got pizzas from Cornerstone Pizza (next to the Village Market), for our "rehearsal" party the night before. Perfect.
Anyway, the listing description was accurate. The place was all cleaned and ready for us. The owner was very pleasant to work with. We would suggest it to anyone.

Stop Looking, This is Your House!

  • 5 of 5
The Island House is absolutely amazing. It's in a gated community in Perkins Cove and has water views from every single room (except the 1/2 bath!!). The wrap around porch is amazing and two of the upstairs bedrooms have private balconies as well. The master bedroom is like it's own private retreat. The shower has a rain shower along with 6, yes 6, wall jets. The shower also has a steam option so everyone was fighting to use it! The house is walking distance to everything and comes with everything you could possibly need to have the perfect getaway. Ralph, the owner, greeted us and gave us a personal tour. He was such a wonderful host and made us feel so special to be in the house. Even though it wasn't quite in season yet, Ralph even made sure that the hot tub was ready for us when we got there. The hot tub also overlooks the ocean so you can watch the boats go by as you soak. The house has great big common areas for everyone to gather yet has enough bedrooms and bathrooms to give you the privacy you need. We rented the Island House for my husband's birthday and invited his friends along. It couldn't have been more perfect. I highly recommend and have a strong feeling we will be back!
