The home is very unique and NOT a typical rental property. The house has been painstakingly restored with a new architecturally sensitive addition. The result combines the best of old world charm and state of the art modern amenities. Every convenience and comfort has been taken into account. The physical location is

incredible. Literally walk to everything. You constantly are aware of the water and the nautical history and heritage of the Kennebunkport.

There are wonderful dining options, art galleries and shops within a 5 minute walk. The property is beautiful inside and out. The Williamsburg style grounds and landscaping are exquisite and represent a very unique feature of the property. Whether it's Spring, Summer, Fall or during Christmas Prelude the inside and outside of the house complement each other in a very unique and special way.

A Flawless Vacation House on the Maine Coast

  • 5 of 5
We traveled with another couple from Los Angeles to this lovely home in Kennebunkport and stayed for a most enjoyable week in August. The home is beautifully appointed and architecturally striking. The house is immaculate top to bottom, (one could eat off the floors even in the cellar), and unlike owners who lock up useful amenities in an owners' closet, we were surrounded by luxury items (fine linens, crystal, art, etc.) making us feel like we were guests in a generous host's home. The location is also perfect. The town of Kennebunkport is heavily traveled to in the summer, but we could leave our cars in the driveway and walk just a few blocks to shopping and restaurants. Walker Point, the Bush Family home, is a few miles away as is Mabel's, a favorite seafood restaurant of the Bush family. During our stay, we were also visiting colleges with our high school daughters and were able to visit Colby, Bates and Bowdoin all in one day.brThe attention to detail is tremendous and all of our needs were either anticipated or fulfilled (as when the blender was not working and a new replacement was quickly delivered). The owner also arranged for us to be able to ship two case of our favorite California wines so that they were waiting for us when we arrived. The patio pictured was our favorite cocktail and lounging area, moving to one of two lovely interior living rooms after sundown. We would love to go back, especially if our daughters wind up at schools in Maine!

absolutely perfect for our vacation

  • 5 of 5
I was travelling with my two good friends. This lovely home was absolutely perfect for our week in Maine! We arrived late Saturday night and the owners were there to greet us with welcoming drinks and snacks - they had even stocked the fridge for the next morning's breakfast.
The house was exactly as represented - pristine, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms are wonderfully furnished with everything one could want. The location is an ideal distance from the activities in town. We could walk to lots of restaurants and shopping. Then in the evening we would sit outside on the patio and not hear anything but our own conversation.
We had an occasion to call the property manager (could not locate the charger for the tv remote) and she answered promptly.
I would highly recommend this property and can't wait to book another trip! It was perfect!

Outstanding rental in the heart of paradise

  • 5 of 5
This house is a beautiful home in a prime location. Walking distance to everything! Spotless, plenty of room and totally updated, the space allowed for everyone to either have their privacy or join the crowd on the main floor. In August it does sometimes get hot, but the a/c took care of any heat issues. I was there with a girls group and it was a great home for us - close to everything and a great clean home in which to end our day's outings. If we needed anything at all, the manager was just a phone call away and could answer any questions. I highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a nice home away from the noisy crowd, but close enough to walk to it if that's what you want.

Breath-taking Home

  • 5 of 5
Yes, home not house. We have rented before in Hawaii and Alaska and have never been to Maine before. Now where in the world could we go that could have better accommodations than this. A magical mixture of original architecture and modern amenities. With plenty of places to visit, shop, tour and the views. I can see why Maine is such a popular summer destination. If you have an opportunity to rent this home, you will not be disappointed. Nothing has been spared in its preparation. Plenty of room for ten adults to enjoy peace and tranquility.

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5
This was a great house for our family vacation. We arrived very late and the owners were there to great us and give us a quick walk through. They had also provided breakfast items to get us started in the morning which was greatly appreciated. They came back in the morning to give more information and introduced us to the local caretakers who would help if there were any issues with the house. (There were none.) She also gave helpful information for planning our daily agendas.
The house was exactly as listed and great for my party of eight adults. It is a nice house but more importantly we felt at home.
The kitchen was fantastic, newly remodeled wth great appliances. It allowed us all to gather and take turns as chef for the meal. The dining room was large enough that we could all sit and linger over dinner or a game of cards. The owners take pride in the house, it shows, and we appreciated it.
The town was friendly, inviting, and within walking distance. We greatly enjoyed the Eleanor sailing ship, the local Irish pub and HR general store. You can get everything you need in town or there is also a supermarket within a short drive.
When we shared our plans for taco night with margaritas, the owners surprised us with margarita glasses. It was really considerate and fun! (We put them to good use.)
We enjoyed the lovely patio and grill too. When the weather was not as sunny as we would have liked, we found many things to do even with a bit of a drizzle in the air. Not only would we recommend this rental, we are likely to use it again ourselves!

Expectations Exceeded

  • 5 of 5
The photographs of this house are lovely but it is even more beautiful in person. We found everything in shipshape condition from the stunning room and deck on the third floor to the private, lower level bedroom suite with flatscreen tv and really cool full bath. We were there during the winter so LOVED sipping wine by the fireplace in the cozy, beautifully decorated living room. Would love to go back in the summer months to take advantage of the patio and outside dining space. If you are planning a get-away with friends, this house is perfect since each bedroom offers a private bath, fireplace and flat screen tv. We loved that we could leave our car in the driveway and walk to town. Our expectations were exceeded the second we stepped in the front door.
