PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
Our family has been holidaying at GRB for over 40 years. This year the entire family were together - adult children and grandchildren - 9 in total. Linda's home exceeded all our expectations. It's a fantastic place for young children with the beautiful beach so close. This end of the beach at GRB is the best for families with children - wide, and great at low tide. The bunk beds were a great hit for the kids and the upstairs family room was a perfect play space for them. The home is beautifully decorated and the kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need for cooking. The outdoor deck off the kitchen is fantastic for breakfast, lunch and supper.

Linda is a gracious host and very accessible if need be.

We have already booked our two weeks for 2014. Linda, thanks for sharing your beautiful home.

A SPECIAL PLACE

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I rented a place on the Cape last summer and had a wonderful week away. This year we chose to head to Kennebunkport and stay on Goose Rocks Beach. What a special place!! Everything in the description about this home is accurate. The location is steps from the ocean and so convenient for a family with a little one who still needs an afternoon nap. The house is immaculate and a perfect layout for 2 families to share. We especially loved taking walks every morning with the baby and even joining the 5K road race on July 3rd. The owners were prompt to respond to any questions during the rental process and a pleasure to deal with. We hesitate to recommend the property to anyone else because we would love to keep our "little secret".

AMAZING HOME!

  • 5 of 5
I work in the travel industry and have rented several homes over the years but this one exceeds all expectations! I typically prepare myself for a sub-par kitchen, linens, mis-matched furniture etc. when renting a vacation home but none of that was true about this home! It looks straight out of a magazine! All of the furnishings were top notch - comfortable and beautiful! The kitchen was fully stocked with very nice dinnerware, cookware and utencils. Fantastic range as well.

All of the beds were comfortable and the layout of the home allows for larger groups to spread out and enjoy separate spaces for reading and talking as well as room for large gatherings.

If all of that wasn't enough - the location of the home was great as well! It is right on the beach with amazing views and beautiful sand for a walk. It was very quiet and felt like a private beach. It was also very easy access to Cape Porpoise and Kennebunkport. We loved going into Cape Porpoise each morning for coffee and the restaurants in the area were fantastic.

Linda the owner was also great. She was traveling in Puerto Rico during our stay but still took the time to call and welcome us and assist with anything we needed.

This was our first time in Maine but certainly not our last stay at this incredible home!

AMAZING FAMILY VACATION

  • 5 of 5
My family (2 adults, 2 kids under 5 years old) stayed here in late September, 2011. It was one of the best family vacations we've ever had. Linda, the owner, was incredibly responsive and accommodating. The house was gorgeous. It's steps from what has to be one of the best secret beaches in the North East. And the town was fantastic.

My only reluctance is having more people find out about this amazing getaway that's somehow still undiscovered!

Owner's Response: We too are tempted sometimes to keep as a secret the best family beach in Maine. Three generations of our family have vacationed in Goose Rocks Beach year after year and it is a magical place.

BEST HOUSE IN GOOSEROCKS!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage is quintessential Maine; comfortable, charming and with all the amenities. The mattresses and linens are luxurious, the living space is inviting and I especially love the hidden nooks in which to curl up with a good book! You can't beat the location--we started each morning on the deck, overlooking the ocean and beach and ended that way, too. The block is quiet but not too far away from all the action. We walked every day on the best beach in Maine, and explored nearby towns and coves. It was quite comfortable for the 7 of us--we entertained friends around the charming antique table and made full use of the gourmet kitchen. Pristine and exquisite; Exactly what we needed for a memorable vacation! We will be back!

Owner's Response: We agree---the upper deck is a fabulous place to sit. Thank you for the great review. We do have to add that linens are no longer provided with the house. Most of our families reserve them from Cottage Linens, an amazing Goose Rocks Beach service that leaves the linens waiting for you in a bag right on the door step. Fresh and easy!

Map

Goose Rocks Beach is a part of Kennebunkport but a world away. One of the longest sandy beaches in Maine with a protected cove it provides a serene escape. Shelling, beach walking, swimming, hikes at low tide to nearby Timber Island, kayaking to outlying islands and the Cape Porpoise lighthouse are all part of Goose Rocks Beach vacation. A ten minute drive away is the bustle of Dock Square in Kennebunkport with shops, restaurants and sightseeing. Goose Rocks Beach is 35 minutes from Portland Maine and its hip cobblestoned streets and waterfront.

Other Activities: beachcombing, shelling
