Overview

Kennebunkport Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 or 4, 5, 7 or 10 Bedrooms

At Waterscape on the river in the Kennebunks. You’re just feet from the water in this unique, old world, new designer-created vacation property in this turn of century old boatyard building. You can be renting 1 to 5 bedrooms, rates are adjusted for the number of bedrooms per night ($140 off season for a one bedroom to $750 for 5 bedrooms in season, call for details).

You’re greeted by beautiful waterscape views on this tranquil riverfront location, yet you are 2 minutes walk to restaurants, shops, or a stroll to the beach. Wake up in your suite and enjoy your own accommodations, or just a minute away, have breakfast at the best bakery within miles. Later take a stroll to the beach, use our new dock to ride your kayak on the river for a nature trip, or a walk across the river bridge to Dock Square. Then, after some shopping, a look at the historic village, and an ice cream cone, at the bridge take home some lobsters and cook them up back at your summer vacation “place”, or get your kids to eat at a fun restaurant nearby. You may consider having diner by yourselves at a world-class restaurant just a romantic walk away.

Spectacular Views

  • 5 of 5
I have traveled to Maine for 21 years and am so happy to have found this gem. The Penthouse was fabulous. A peaceful place to sit and watch the events of Kennebunkport. Each morning, even in the rain, the Quintessential town is alive. From having breakfast at "Mornings in Paris" to sitting on the sunporch in front of the gas fireplace enjoying the views of the ever changing tide made the perfect vacation. The views from the open living room, dining room area are spectacular. The master bedroom is very comfortable with it's own sun porch. As we drove away my only thought was - how soon could I return!

Absolutely PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
Brought four other couples along with my wife and I to this gem for a four day weekend. Wanted to be together and found this property to be even BETTER than described. The proximity to shops (7 minute walk) and dining meant we never moved our cars - thereby avoiding the issue of parking in Kennebunkport on busy weekends. The beach was an easy 20 minute walk. We occupied the Penthouse - 5 bedrooms (2 of which had private decks), 3 baths, lots of common space with an additional deck overlooking the village and river. The well stocked kitchen had everything we'd need, despite dining out every night.

I had read a previous review with a caution on a bedroom with queen air mattress. I have to say the couple in our group who slept in this room had no issue and said it was as comfortable as their bed at home.

Spoke with other guests staying a floor beneath - they had been coming for several years, always request the same unit and wouldn't think about any other location.

Finding this property made me a hero among my group. No one could believe the comfort, cleanliness, proximity, views, quiet neighborhood surrounding and overall value this property had to offer. I found Roger easy to contact as I made reservations and the deal was quickly transacted.

WE WILL BE BACK!!

Great Location, but know what you are getting!

  • 4 of 5
Location, Location, Location. ‘Waterscape’ offers a premier location that affords great views and easy walking to wonderful shops and restaurants. Three of us couples made a mutual decision to make this our vacation destination and it proved to be a good choice. We booked our stay in the ‘penthouse’ which offered three bedrooms and two full baths. The condo was beautifully decorated, the common space offered more than enough space for all of us and the kitchen was well stocked. Our favorite spot, however, had to be the amazing sun porch and attached outdoor deck. We spent many hours there enjoying the view! However, we were confused over how bedrooms were described in the VRBO listing. The facility is described as 5 bedrooms but we did not realize that these are in different ‘condo’ spaces so we did not know which of the described beds were in the ‘penthouse.’ What we found was a beautiful master suite with a king bed and attached bath; one large bedroom with two twin beds (which is not listed in the descriptions at all); and one very small room listed as a queen (these two rooms shared one bath). This "queen" turned out to be a futon base with a queen air mattress that hung over the edges. One of our couples used it and kept sliding off the mattress into the crack between the back of the futon and air mattress. This did not meet our expectations and so we requested a change. We were lucky that one of the other condo bedrooms was available but were disappointed in the manner in which the owner handled this problem, culminating in his charging us more. While we enjoyed the space and would recommend it, our advice is ‘ask before you go’ so you know for certain what you are or are not getting.

Awesome property ! Beautifully appointed, super-clean, with comfortable, quality furnishings (even the sofa sleepers were restful), most every bedroom has an attached bath AND an incredible view onto the water - in fact, one room is directly OVER the water when the tide comes in. The living room, enclosed patio and porch are all spacious and provided so much room for everyone to spread out and find a peaceful spot to relax, play cards, read a book, enjoy a cocktail... The garden is spectacular, tranquil, and the overall experience feels very private even though you are steps (literally) from the downtown strips of Kennebunk and Kennebunkport. Shop, dine, drink, catch a fishing or whale watch charter - all a short stroll away. While Kennebunk Beaches are about 1.5 miles away, the are sandy and perfect to ride a bike to. The property owner (Roger) included Beach Parking Passes for extra convenience when traveling there by car. Roger was ever so helpful at describing the property and making sure that our party of 17 would be set up with the most suitable accommodations. The kitchen in the Main House is outstanding! Commercial cooktop, double ovens, double fridges, double sinks, double dishwashers, lots (and lots) of cutlery, dishes, glasses and every gadget, counter top appliance and bake/serveware you can imagine- a cook's paradise. Roger stopped by to drop over a bottle of wine and gave us a tour of the adjoining Penthouse condo - which is also incredible. It was a real treat staying in such a lovely property that has been handsomely recommissioned (personally by Roger) from a turn-of-the-century commercial boathouse into a virtual vacation palace. Tres Tres Bien!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have been coming to Maine for the past 20 years and we usually stay at an ocean front inn, but after a bad experience with a dog sitter, we decided to find a place to rent that allowed dogs. Initially we were afraid we'd miss the serenity of the ocean, but no worries, we didn't miss a thing! We rented the 1 bedroom unit. Upon arrival we found the unit spotless and very nicely appointed. That night and we saw the full moon rise over the water. The next morning we went to the beach (2 miles away) and watched the sunrise. Then stopped at the french bakery on the corner for croissants and came back and enjoyed coffee on the deck as we watched the tide roll in. After exploring for a day we came back and enjoyed a bottle of wine as we watched the hustle and bustle in Dock Square - close enough to watch, but far enough away to have peace and quiet. We found the privacy of a condo to be far superior to an inn, and the location of Waterscape can't be beat. Truly close enough to walk to everything, and there are beautiful waterviews from both the sitting room and bedroom. There were two other units occupied at the same time and the only reason we knew this is because we saw two cars - we did not see or hear anyone else - the units are very quiet. Roger, the owner, is a wonderful source for things to do and see and very pleasant to deal with. This was the best Maine vacation we ever had, it was truly a heartache to leave. We're going to try to convince the whole family to rent for the same time next year. The units are arranged so that each family can have their own unit, but also gather into a common area if they want to have shared time. Did we miss the ocean front inn - no way! Waterscape has it all!

Family Holiday vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had 4 generations 2-91 in this great condo. The location is fantastic with an easy walk to town and .5 mile to the beach. We have spent many years in this town in a family home and really were thrilled to return. The common space is wonderful with big comfortable seating for a group of 12-14. The views are beautiful from almost every room. The holiday lights in town made it so scenic and festive from the house. The sun porch provided great extra common space. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds. We rarely used our cars with shopping, galleries and restaurants within walking distance. Roger was a pleasure to work with and was available to answer all my questions. We had a totally wonderful experience and would love to return in the future.
