We stayed here for thanksgiving & could not believe how wonderful the house & the view of the water . The kitchen was amazing & we absolutely loved the room with the woodstove & all the windows facing the water..And the master bathroom with the steam shower made me feel like I was at a spa! Best vacation we have had in a good long while. We cant wait until this Thanksgiving. We already have it booked!!!

ACTIVE SENIOR

My wife, son & daughter, couldn't have had more fun. Not having driven here , we enjoyed picture perfect New England neighborhood walks to "Kittery Foreside" the quaint down town area. You must sample the fare @ Anneka Jans a gourmet bistro style restaurant & pub.. Fresh off the boat seafood, a specialty.. You have a brisk 15 min. walk to spark your appetite, then the same on your short stroll home. Cars are for sissies.. A little farther, and you're availed of a host of fine eateries & shoppes in Portsmouth NH, just over the new Bridge.. Maybe total 20 min walk, we did it in 15 min. but that was on the way over, & hungry.. Don't think you have to go out to enjoy this cozy home.. The kitchen is well equipped & stocked w/ spices & cooking basics.. A weber grill allowed us to BBQ just out the slider to the "Wedding Deck" according to Janie,( the manager) the owners husband built the deck & they were married there, some years ago.. All in all a restfull & enjoyable stay. I'll never forget the River View of the mighty Piscataqua

HOME AWAY FROM HOME

  • 4 of 5
I was looking for a quaint New England home where my girlfriend and I could have a "girl's week" away from work and husbands. This lovely home was the perfect fit for us. It was walking distance to Portsmouth where there are some wonderful shops and very close driving distance to the outlet stores. The house was quaint and the yard is lovely. The view of the bridge is great and it is so relaxing to sit on the deck or be in the dining room to see it when it goes up and down. We enjoyed cooking our own seafood picked up from the docks just off the boats! How much fresher can you get than that? I can't imagine anyone not enjoying this great "home away from home".

A GREAT TREASURE

  • 3 of 5
We had a wonderful time, although too short! When we arrived home from our trip there was a message from Janey, the manager of the property, thanking us for leaving the house in such good condition. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for our deposit and have had no luck getting a response from the owner. Very disappointing, as we would love to return.

DISAPPOINTING RENTAL EXPERIENCE

  • 1 of 5
We were very disappointed in this property. The house was dirty and poorly maintained, and it smelled of mildew. The refrigerator had not been cleaned from the last renters, there were cobwebs and dusty empty soda bottles under the beds, and owners' shoes under bureaus, as well as clothes inside the closets and many of the drawers. There was no railing around the narrow deck outside the sunroom, despite a drop to the ground. On the positive side, the location was good and the view from the house was lovely. In spite of the this, I would not recommend this property to anyone, and especially not to renters with allergies or with children.

Owner's Response: Our "Homeaway" rental is exactly that "our home" therefore all of the closets are not void of clothing. There is however ample closet space and drawer space that is empty for renters. Before these tenants moved in we paid our manager over $250.00 to clean the house. The tenants complained and she returned and cleaned some more. Everyone has a different idea of what clean really is. Ours is an old Maine cottage with old wide pine floors, lots of personality and I assure you, cleanliness. Our manager fielded daily complaints and we are very sorry these tenants did not have the same type of enjoyment and many tenants have reported in the past. Oh, we always warn tenants with children about the property, it is very vertical and not good for toddlers or people with handicaps, but it is a little piece of paradise for most vacationers.

Historic Kittery is across the Piscataqua River from Portsmouth NH. Our home is a short walk to Kittery Foreside or downtown Portsmouth, where shops & restaurants abound. We enjoy a dramatic view of the River & a parade of recreational & commercial ships & yachts passing under the graceful 'Sarah Long Bridge'. We look down on a tidal creek / bay which is a magnet for all sorts of sea & shore birds. Swans, Geese, Ducks & the occasional Rapter swoop & wheel. The fenced yard boasts a perennial garden which was designed to attract butterflys and birds. Your small dog will enjoy the freedom of the Doggy Door while you are out & about. It seems that there is always something to watch in our Southern facing vista. On the second floor the master bedroom faces south with a deck and master bath with steam shower for two. 'It's a little paradise.'
