About Anita French

We live just over the border in New Hampshire but love to play at York Beach. We formed Periwinkle Properties LLC when we purchased this set of three houses in the spring of 2012. Periwinkle combines our interest in fixing up older houses, time at the beach and meeting new people. 'Hidden Treasure', 'Breakwater' and 'High Tide' are all part of Periwinkle and available for rent individually or as a package.

Anita French purchased this house in 2012

Why Anita French chose York Beach

The spacious, wrap around porch is the perfect place to start off your morning with your favorite cup of coffee or wind down after a day at beach. Plenty of comfortable seating and places to walk. Everything you need for your get away is right here.

Exceptional

  • 5 of 5
Our family has rented many homes in Short Sands this one was by far the best experience we have had. This time we brought three couples (friends) with us, before we left we all agreed that this experience would be rated EXCELLENT. Breakwater was more than I expected everything we needed was there. We walked and walked and walked even to Nubble Light House. The view from the beautiful porch and bedrooms is exceptional. The eight of us plan to make this destination an annual event. Thanks Anita for stopping by to make sure we had everything we needed and for sharing your home.

Perfect vacation place for family!

  • 5 of 5
Breakwater was a perfect vacation home for our family. Anita and Don have made this home so comfortable we didn't want to leave. We loved sitting on the porch and looking at the view of the ocean and the accommodations were perfect. Short Sands Beach is just a beautiful walk around the corner and Ogunquit and Wells are just a short drive away. We highly recommend this property and hope to go back every year!

Week-end to York Beach

  • 3 of 5
This residence is not recommended if you are traveling with older people. The staircase to go upstairs is narrow and has no ramp. This is the carpet that covers the floor. The dining room is great. A bathroom for 8 is not enough. The house is located in a quiet neighborhood. The nice thing is the patio if the temperature is at the rendezvous.

Memorial Day Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5
Our family rented Breakwater over the Memorial Day weekend; Breakwater will be the last of the three Periwinkle properties to be renovated. Anita and Don French have done a remarkable job remodeling Hidden Treasure and High Tide; they are brand new and beautiful. Breakwater still maintains the charm of the classic Maine beach house; a spacious yet cozy home that has perched on the hill crest of Long Sands for more than a century. The huge wrap around porch provides beautiful views of Cape Neddick and Long Sands Beach, combine this with the large dining room and a perfect getaway with your family is guaranteed. And our fabulous feline, Jameson, was welcomed to join us! The renovation of this home with happen this fall and it will be just as beautiful as it's sisters. Owners, Anita and Don were highly responsive to any needs; with winds, rain and freezing temperatures making a surprise visit over the holiday, they frantically addressed the sudden need for heat by installing a new gas furnace. We were very comfortable. The stairs were a bit steep for older guests, but that has been remedied in the nearly identical High Tide renovation and will no doubt be addressed at Breakwater. Additionally, improvements have been made to make the residence more accessible. The location at Long Sands is central to all that Maine has to offer. We are a Vermont family who love our time in Maine; we have stayed many of the coastal hotels over the past 40 years. Renting this home was the best choice we could have made. Thank you for helping is to celebrate our Memorial Day, birthdays and the brief times that our adult children and friends have available to come together as a family.
Sincerely yours, Julie and Steve Merritt

Great Stay at Short Sands, clean and would recommend...

  • 4 of 5
Plenty of room, great porch for that morning cup of coffee, less than a 10 min walk to the beach. Quiet neighborhood. Love short sands!
Cottage needs updating and owners have indicated it's in the works, they are new owners. But it was a pretty clean place, could use a 1st floor bathroom and laundry!
The huge porch sold us, plenty of room for everyone, cooking on the grill and sitting areas.
Would rent again..
