About Moira

I have vacationed in York Harbor and York Beach almost every year since 1979. For years, our extended family rented a large house, first in York Harbor, then in York Beach. After spending so much time in Maine, we decided to purchase our own place.

Moira purchased this condo in 2011

Why Moira chose York Beach

We loved how close it is to town and to the beach. It's so easy for the kids to head back home from the beach for lunch or some quiet time. Going to watch the taffy pull at Goldenrod is something we do *every* time we are in town. It never gets old. I love watching the weddings on the Union Bluff's lawn every Friday and Saturday evening.

What makes this condo unique

We love all that there is to do in York Beach and how close it is to Ogunquit and Portsmouth, NH.

Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5
You really can't get much closer to Short Sands beach...literally a 2 minute walk. Also within walking distance of the zoo. Clean, spacious and airy, tastefully decorated. Stayed for one week with our two young kids. The bedrooms are pretty big...the baby slept in a pack-n-play in the corner of our room and there was plenty of room. Nice kitchen-we cooked most of our meals there. It was convenient to have the washer/dryer. Definitely a place we want to go back to.

Perfect location and place!

  • 5 of 5
We picked this place due to the great review we seen, the house is so well located, we were able to walk to the beach, the village and go out to diner, could go back the house if we missed something. So convenient!
The house was very clean, very well furnished, tones of space for our kid. We definitely will be coming back, loved it!

Best Family Vacation-PRIME location!

  • 5 of 5
What a great experience! Not knowing York I wasn't sure how close everything would be, and I always set my expectations for beach houses a tiny bit low so I'm not disappointed. This house was everything I hoped for and much more than I expected! Great communication from the owners, the shady back unit meant it was never too hot inside-a/c in the bedrooms at night made it more than comfortable. Our kids are 8,5 and the baby turned one while we were there and it was the perfect house. The bedrooms are really spacious, the 2 twin room could have easily housed an air mattress or the pack n play with lots of room to still move around. We didn't use the balcony, but both bedrooms have access to it and its furnished. The patio off of the back door is fenced, for a sense of privacy. It was updated and nicely furnished and decorated without having little items everywhere that I had to move to keep away from the baby. Now for the location: this is so close to EVErYThING! The beach is about one full block of walking, but it's 'right there'. Beach toys and buggy are all included so we didn't have to buy anything, and it made my kids keep track of their sand toys since they belonged to someone else. We drove one day only, to grocery shop at hannaford up route 1, and to go to dinner at Fox's by Nubble lighthouse (which you could actually walk to at 1.6 miles away)-Brian's ice cream is also on the way there. Great running routes from the house and you must get some salt water taffy and cookie dough ice cream from Goldenrod. This vacation was cross country for us, but with the seamless rental process, prime location and fantastic weather I would come back in a heartbeat! It is on two levels and the stairs are a bit steep (not dangerously so) so those with mobility issues would have a hard time.

Best location to Short Sands and Downtown

  • 5 of 5
This condo was amazing for 4 adults (would be great for kids too). It was very clean upon arrival and the amentities were great, ie updated kitchen with all the fixings, a/c bedrooms, roomy living and dining area, and great outdoor patio. It was not cluttered with beach trinkets like so many rentals are, it was updated and tasteful. The a/c bedrooms was a huge selling point for me and since we cooked in so much it was great having an updated kitchen with applicances and gear. The rental includes tiolet paper, papertowels, laundry and detergent, dishwasher and dish soap so not having to pack all those little things really adds up! The location is why I doubt I will ever rent another place, literally 3 minute walk down to the beach and the same to get to all the shops and restaurants downtown. It is great if you have friends or children not as impressed laying stationary on the beach all day. Also, Long sands is only about a 10-15 minute walk as well in case you wanted a change of scenery. I would say to try to plan on using gallons of water instead of water bottles, for between water, beer, and gatorade bottles among all other recyclable items we were at capacity for the bins provided. Next year I will probably plan on bringing my own containers and brining home most of the recycling.

Owner's Response: Thank you - I'm glad you enjoyed the condo, and plan on coming back!

The town picks up recycling every other week, so the bins do get full in between.

Wonderful Vacation Condo!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 4 year daughter, and I have stayed here for the past 2 years. We couldn't ask for a better location. It is within walking distance to short sands beach, York's Wild Animal Kingdom and many restaurants and stores. The condo itself is immaculate and has everything you could possibly need for a great vacation. It has all the comforts of home...and then some. We look forward to staying here every year.

York Beach Family Vacation - Great Spot!

  • 5 of 5
This condo was a great spot for our recent family vacation with our two teenagers. The condo was extremely convenient, spacious and clean. It was within easy walking distance to Short Sands and the downtown shops. In fact, our car didn't move from the parking lot for most of the week.

The owner was extremely professional, responsive and honest with regard to the unit amenities and what to expect.

Would highly recommend.
