COMFORTABLE HOME NEAR PERKINS COVE- PET FRIENDLY- WIFI- CENTRAL AC
Ogunquit House Rental Photos and Description
3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, close to the ocean
The Three bedroom, three bath house with central air and WiFi, sleeps 6 (8 if using pull out couch in the master suite). The master suite has a queen size bed, sitting/dressing room, and full bath. The first floor has a living room, dining room, kitchen, breakfast room and half bath. There is a washer and dryer in the basement. The front and side of the house has a wraparound screened porch to enjoy the sea air.
The location of the house is amazing and we enjoyed walking to the beach.
However, the house was not clean at all. There was a huge smell of moisture which was very distubing. I am not allergic but I was feeling very uncomfortable throughout our stay. The house had a lot of dust and was not well maintained. Also, the bed sheets and the towels were full of pet hair and dirty and we did not have enough towels for everybody (7 people).

Owner's Response: We are always concerned if our guests are disatisfied with our home.
The kitchen and bathrooms are washed and the house is dusted and vacuumed before guests arrive. If they don't let us know as soon as they discover a problem, we cannot remedy the situation.
Unfortunately these guests chose not to abide by our house rules that were emailed to them along with the directions to the house. As stated at the top of the rules, failure to adhere to the house rules may cause a reduction of the security deposit. Only when the guests were told of the reduction did they inform us of the problems in the house, one of which was an electrical issue with the stove that could have resulted in a fire. Had we not charged them for their willful disregard for our home it might have burned down.
What a great vacation home and wonderful location. I can't begin to explain how much fun we had staying so close to Perkins Cove, the Marginal Way and he Center of Ogunquit. The big bonus for me was the fact that our wonderful Chocolate Lab Cooper was allowed to stay and Karen the owner even gave Cooper a welcome goodie bag. We lived on the Porch and it was the relaxing vacation we all needed. Thanks again.
We spent a wonderful week relaxing in Ogunquit -- walking, cooking, reading, and exploring the area, using this charming old summer place as our home base. The neighborhood is lovely and quiet, yet within a very easy stroll to all the cafes, beaches and shops of Perkin's Cove and Ogunquit village each day. We couldn't have found a more perfect spot than this. We practically lived on the huge wrap-around screened porch!

VRBO, from HomeAway
Tourists without a Car,
Families with Young Children,
Our vacation rental "home-away-from-home" was just as we had hoped it would be. The house and it's amenities met the listed description very accurately. It's in a perfect location snuggled between Perkins Cove and the center of the famous Ogunquit activities and beach spots.
The property owners were always ready to respond to any questions we had asked of them. The service was very friendly, courteous, and efficient with great customer relations due to good communication with the owner/manager. We had the place to ourselves and felt like it was "our" place. Of course, we also felt that we had to be responsible and to help keep the house clean and tidy.
All our family members, which, spread over the week, included 8 overall, will definitely recommend this rental to others. We're already making plans for next year.
And if you don't know the area already, let's say we've been going to this vacation spot almost annually over the past 35 years. It accommodates both family and single individual groups.
Besides a great amount of by-the-sea restaurants and dining venues, the activities in this area include a night out at the Ogunquit Playhouse, jazz at Jonathan's, the arcade at York beach, golfing, antique shopping, and more.
The Ogunquit area has a wide range of places to stay, high and low. But this rental met all our needs, it was like our country retreat.
Ogunquit,'beautiful place by the sea' offers a mile long stretch of soft, sandy beach, the marginal way footpath that allows you to stroll along the rocky coast from Perkins Cove to the Village, a diversity of restaurants from quick take-out to five star dining, and museums and art galleries. The Ogunquit Playhouse presents musical theater throughout the summer months featuring well known actors. Perkins Cove has restaurants, shops, and art galleries, as well as boat tours. You can sail to York or Wells on sightseeing boats, or take a tour with a lobster fisherman. There is a deep sea fishing trip as well.
There is a trolley that will take you from Perkins Cove to the beach, the playhouse, the village, and up to the Wells line so a car is not all that necessary. If you care to drive, York Beach is just down the shore road where you can get Goldenrod saltwater taffy and entertain the kids at the York Wild Kingdom. Kennebunkport is just north, past Wells, with shops and restaurants, and former President Bush's summer home.
At the beach you can choose enjoying the surf and swimming in the river. The sand is white and fine although a bit sparce at high tide. There are places to get snacks and shops for extra sunscreen.
Rentals are available from June 1st to September 31st. A week is Saturday-Saturday, no exceptions.
* Approximate monthly rate. Actual rate will depend on the days of the month you stay.
Payment is usually accepted in the quoted currency (USD) unless the currency and the amount is specifically agreed in advance with the owner / advertiser.
