The BEST place for a Family Getaway!
Submitted: September 4, 2012

If you have a family with children, this is THE place to rent!
Helen, the owner, is SO accommodating with everything you'll need! Our youngest was 10 months old when we stayed, and she already had most of the things we needed! Such things included a Pack n' Play, baby gates, monitors, 2 highchairs, and even toys! For our older children, 9-10 years old, there were bikes so that they could ride around the wonderful cul de sac that surrounds the home, enough pool toys to keep them busy for hours, a wonderful jungle gym/swing set, a game room downstairs, and movies, movies, movies!
Helen keeps the grounds around the home, in PRESTINE condition! She also provides a grounds manager, who is on call for anything that may come up and he is VERY nice! The pool & hot tub are in amazing condition as well and kept up! Forget your sunblock or bug spray? Well, Helen has thought of that and provided it for you :) She keeps a wonderful binder of nearby attractions, restaurants and an abundance of Take-Out menus, which you'll need & love since you wont want to leave once you're there!
I'd have to say, my favorite room, is the Ocean front room with the King size bed. The bed is so comfy and fresh linens are provided. You go to sleep listening to the waves and wake up to the seagulls in the distance, waves crashing and you may even see a cruise ship like we did :)
We enjoyed day trips to the Lobster Shack with the FRESHEST seafood, and nice casual inside & outside seating!
We also visited the Portland Head Light, with an amazing gift shop, where we spent way too much money lol, and a wonderful park and family hang out spot!
Seriously, don't look any further! Just call Helen, she's SO sweet and lovely! You will not regret it! We're already planning out next visit!
