I have an eye for quality, cleanliness, design and detail which is evident in our rental home.
We've enjoyed family vacations in this area for many years. The house has been in the family since 1949! Being so close to one of the most beautiful pristine beaches we've ever encountered is truly a marvelous treasure. The Maine air is crisp and the Atlantic ocean clear. Whatever the season, there's always so much to enjoy in the area. York Harbor has been a destination, particularly in the summer, since the late 1800's. It's easy to understand why.
A unique benefit our our home is being so close to the beach and yet being on a quiet side street away from the hustle and bustle. Also, being able to walk to the beach and not having to get in the car and park, is ideal. Spectacular natural beauty and restaurants, within walking distance, are wonderful, too.
