A fully enclosed outside shower. It's always fun to take a shower outside or just rinse the kids off...
You will love this newly renovated cottage, 'Sea Escape'. It is so close to the ocean, the beach will feel like it's in your front yard. The beach is only stone's throw from the front door. Once on the beach you will find a majestic, panoramic view of 9 islands (one with a lighthouse), Saco River inlet with a jetty to climb on and fish from, etc. If you have a boat, bring it!
Hill's Beach is very quiet and just far enough to get away from all the tourist beaches. For the most part, the only people who frequent this area of beach are those who live on the street, approximately 10 houses. So the large, sandy beach is almost all yours!
If you have kids (like our family), you will enjoy the peace of mind being on a side street with very little traffic and the large yard for the kids to run and play while they wait for you to go to the beach.
It looks small from the outside, but it is over 1500 sq. feet! Completely furnished and renovated with washer/dryer. It is an all season 3 bedroom home offering wall to wall carpeting, air conditioning and wood floors in bedrooms, fully applianced kitchen.

We recently spent Labor Day weekend at Sea Escape. We were very fortunate. The weather was wonderful and Sea Escape provided the comfortable setting in which to enjoy it! Due to Hurricane "Irene", our plans were rather "last minute" and the owners were very helpful in arranging them. Sea Escape is larger than it appears in the pictures with most of the rooms quite roomy! The street is quiet and provides easy beach access. A nice feature are the updates with dishwasher, washer and dryer, etc.
My family loves this hidden gem. The boys call it their "beach house" and can't wait every summer to go back.
The house is perfect for family fun...plenty of space for the whole family to stay or visit.
The beach is also picture perfect. The beach is quiet and safe...perfect for the little ones to enjoy. Low tide is a wonderful time to walk and explore. The Saco River adds to the fun of watching the boats and kayaks pass by.
Can't wait to come back!
This was the 3rd year we rented the Sea Escape and can truly say our week in Biddeford is our favorite week of the year! We are a family of 4 (with two young children and a dog) and the house has the perfect accommodations for everyone. There's plenty of room to spread out, and for the kids to run around and play both in the house and in the backyard. The yard is the perfect place to relax after the beach, or enjoy dinner outside. The biggest perk is the location: the beach is literally steps away. We spent every day at the beach (which is quiet, clean and has very calm water for families with children) and would come up and hose the kids off in the outdoor shower before going back inside. The outdoor shower gets bonus points for helping us avoid sandy floors all week. Biddeford offers a nice central location for anyone looking to explore southern Maine - York's Wild Kingdom, Kennebunk, Freeport, Portland and Kittery are all within an easy driving distance. We will definitely be back in 2014!
Our family of 8 (3 generations, ages 6-68) returned to Sea Escape for our vacation because we had such a great time there last summer. We were not disappointed! Even though the weather wasn't as sunny and warm this year, we still had a wonderful week. The weather was fine for kayaking on the Saco River and around the islands off Hills Beach, playing wiffle ball on the beach at low tide, birdwatching at nearby Scarborough Marsh, helping our grandchildren build sand castles and moats at Fortunes Rocks Beach and just relaxing with a good book - on the beach or on one of Sea Escape's cozy enclosed porches. On chilly days, the water at Hills Beach was definitely warmer for swimming than what we experienced at Fortunes Rocks, and it was a perfect place for our grandchildren to try out their new boogie boards. As before, the house was very clean and comfortable with room for our family to enjoy meals, board games or talks over coffee together, or to spread out for a bit of privacy. It's a great place for families or friends to get together for fun and relaxation.
Our family group of eight (3 generations, aged 4 to 67) had a wonderful week at Sea Escape. The house is roomy and clean with all the amenities you need. The living room and kitchen had room for all of us for group meals and activities. We especially enjoyed the 2 enclosed porches in the early morning and late evening. The beach, it's true, is more like a fresh water beach with small waves, but that makes swimming easier for children, and there are plenty of shells to collect and a beautiful view. Walking out to the sandbars to play bocce ball was a plus. If you want big waves, the other Biddeford beaches are just a few minutes away. What we really appreciated was being able to walk just a couple of minutes on the very quiet, dead end street to get to the water, and how private the beach was. Sea Escape was the perfect peaceful, relaxing place we were hoping for, and we plan to go back again.
What a wonderful week away from all of the distractions of the world! Our family so enjoyed Sea Escape. Walking along the jetty, exploring at low tide, sunning on a quiet, uncrowded beach, gorgeous sunsets and great bike rides made for a refreshing week. The unit is roomy with three bedrooms, a large dining table, two porches and a living room with two different seating areas. Plus, the back yard complete with furniture made for fun outdoor dining. We never ventured away because Sea Escape offered all we were looking for. Great memories for a lifetime!
