AFFORDABLE FAMILY VACATION. WALK TO LONG & SHORT SANDS BEACHES

York Beach House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 10 max) close to both beaches.

Seagulls Nest is a family friendly home in a quiet residential neighborhood. Located at the beginning of the Nubble, it is just minutes to Long and Short Sands beaches. Park the cars and put the keys away! There are 2 bedrooms and a full bath on the 1st floor, along with a large family room, eat-in kitchen and screened 3 season porch. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 3/4 bathrooms on the 2nd floor. The house is spotless, and offers all the conveniences and amenities a large or extended family needs to enjoy a memorable vacation.

Start your day with a run on the beach or early morning coffee in the screened 3 season porch. Less than a 10 minute walk to either Short Sands or Long Sands beaches, enjoy all the activities and excitement both beach areas offer including an expanded playground at Short Sands your little ones will love. Spend the day at the York Wild Kingdom amusement park and zoo. Play croquet or horeshoes with your family in the private, spacious back yard. Take advantage of the eat-in kitchen, grill and large picnic table or walk to area restaurants.

In the evenings, take the family for a walk to the bandstand to enjoy live music, the arcade, watch salt water taffy being made or get ice-cream at the Golden Rod, or shop in the quaint village. Play a game in the screened porch. Watch a ball game or movie in the large family room.

If you want to venture out, Stonewall Kitchen, Mount Agamenticus, Ogunquit Playhouse, Perkins Cove, Marginal Way, Kittery Outlet Mall, Kennebunkport and historic Portsmouth, NH are all close by. Boston and Portland are less than 90 minutes away by car or commuter bus. Those tempted by golf, hiking or antiquing will find plenty to entice them.

Whether you are looking to relax or play, Seagulls Nest will help your family re-unite and re-charge.

We have been visiting the York Beach area for years and waiting to find just the right house to enjoy with our family. We finally found it in our 'Seagulls Nest'.

York is a quaint beach community within 90 minutes of Boston, Manchester, NH and Portland, ME. It has 3 well maintained beaches, a world famous lighthouse, cliff walk overlooking the ocean, museums, historical sites, shopping, dining and several in-town recreational options. While there is plenty to see and do, York is not over-developed or congested.

The house has become a gathering place for our extended family and friends. We can walk to either Long or Short Sands beaches in less than 10 minutes. Our family really enjoys the screened 3 season porch and playing in the large private backyard. It’s large enough so we can play and hang out together when we want to, but also provides us privacy and the flexibility to do our own thing. As we get older, we wanted a house that offers '1st floor' living. The floor plan eliminates the need to deal with stairs if we don't want to.

Stress free vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5
The owners have thought of everything to make staying at Seagulls Nest easy as can be. The house was very clean and well cared for. It's on a quiet street just minutes away from beaches, shops and the zoo by foot and tons of places to visit are just a short drive in the car. Our group of 7 ranged between the ages of 8 and 66. There was plenty of room inside and outside for everyone to comfortably spread out. The local Hannafords grocery store is 15 minutes away and the kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies. We prepared most meals at the house - much better and less expensive than eating every meal out. It was a perfect spot to vacation!!!

Feels like HOME!

  • 5 of 5
My family and another family have just stayed at the Seagull's Nest for the second time!The first time was wonderful and our expectaions were high going into our second stay, they were EXCEEDED! We felt like we came home! Great new upgrades from the wood floors to the new bathroom! It didn't feel like a "rental"! With bedrooms on the main and second floors it was easy to have our seperate areas yet still enjoy the company of friends, especially sitting in the three season room, which is where the adults spent much of their time after a long day at the beach! Speaking of beaches! With Short Sands only a 5 min (tops) walk and Long Sands a 10 min walk we had no shortage of beach time! We even went up to Ogunquit Beach which is a short drive up the coast. The kids love having a backyard to play in, they even learned how to play Croquet! Our families vacation often together and have already started talking about returning to the Seagull's Nest for our 3rd Time!

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Hi

We want to thank you for use of your house in York Beach. It was just as you described. Comfortable clean and roomy. We have rented many times In many different areas and this was without a doubt one of best we have ever been to. The location was excellent and our children young and old could just walk to beach. The yard was spacious so kids could play in backyard if they so desired. The owners were great to deal with. We would highly recommend it.

Exceptional beach house

  • 5 of 5
This is an incredibly clean and roomy beach house that provides all of the comforts of home. We vacationed with another family for the week. In total, we had 8 people, and there was plenty of room. We used the whole house fan to keep cool at the beginning of our stay, as the temps were in the 90s. Window fans kept us cool at night. The laundry facilities were a wonderful asset as we did not have to pack a lot. The location of the house was perfect. It was located in a quiet, clean neighborhood. It was right between the 2 beaches, which was an easy walk to either locale. We enjoyed being able to walk to the beach(es), and the wagon and cart provided to us allowed us to bring plenty to stay at the beach(es) for the day. We enjoyed visiting the shops and restaurants that were also within walking distance. The owners were very easy to talk to, responding quickly to emails and voicemails. We will definately stay at Seagull's Nest again in the future and have recommended it to many friends. It truly felt Iike home away from home.

Great vacation spot for a family

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in York this summer. We were 6 adults and a 2 year old girl. Everyone couple had their own room and bathroom. Our daughter also had her own room and there was still a room to spare. The house was clean and exactly as described and as seen in the pictures. We liked the eat-in kitchen. We also had meals outside on the picnic table and on the back porch. We loved having access to the laundry facilities which was very convenient with a child. We went to the beach everyday (mostly Long Sands and sometimes Short Sands for the playground). It's a 10 min. walk to Long Sands beach and 8 min. to Short Sands. Sometimes we took to car to the beach so we could bring more stuff with us and stay longer. We went to York's Wild Kingdom which was great for young children. We also liked shopping in the stores around The Goldenrod and at the Kittery Outlets. We enjoyed our visit of the Decorator Show House in York Harbor. We went to the Nubble Light and Brown's for ice cream. The weather wasn't too hot for most of the week. The window fans were used only for our last night in the house. The mattresses were very comfortable and there was good quality bedding and towels (even beach towels) for everyone. The house is good size enough that everyone could go to their room to relax, take a shower or change will the others chatted in the living room, the kitchen or back porch. We definitely recommend it to anyone who is looking for a place for a family to enjoy all the activities of York Beach. The owners were very helpful in the planning of our trip and always replied to our e-mail/phone calls quickly. They are very nice people who obviously take good care of their property. The neighbourhood is extremely quiet which was welcome after an intense day spent at the beach.

Great Place to Stay!!

  • 5 of 5
We recently stayed at the Seagulls Nest and it was AWESOME!!! The house was very spacious and VERY CLEAN! All the rooms were spotless and well maintained. We enjoyed the three season room in the back of the house and spent most of our time there talking and relaxing. The house is a perfect walking distance to either beach. There was a wagon and beach chairs for us to use, which made it easy to pack lunch/coolers for the beach. We could pack light since the house had a washer and dryer for our use as well. Three bathrooms all with showers made it easy for everyone.
We HIGHLY recommend staying at the Seagulls Nest, it was the best vacation we had in 10 years. We hope to come back soon!
