Great location, comfortable home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house for an extended family vacation and loved the proximity to the beach and the town. Cocktails on the deck with water views, walking to dinner and playing Skee-ball at Funorama were highlights. Bruce and Audrey were very helpful during our stay, making recommendations and responding quickly as needed. It was a very relaxing and enjoyable long weekend.

Thanks for sharing your home. We will definitely be back.

Beautiful home and Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

We looked on the internet at many, many places and homes for rent for our family, which included our 2 year old daughter. We finally found Bruce and Audrey's home and it was a perfect fit for us.

The house was large, overlooked the ocean, and was convenient to everything that was important to us. We could walk to the beach, playground, restaurants, etc. Any time our daughter got tired of the beach, we could just walk about 3 minutes back to the house to chill out.

The house itself was clean, spacious, and had a great front porch. My family and my husbands' were also in Maine at the same time, and we were able to have dinner for both families with no space issues. There is even a table that seats about 10 people. The kitchen had everything we needed, and, the washer and dryer was key.

We would definitely rent this house again. It was such a relaxing place to stay and enjoy. They even had beach chairs to borrow.

Lastly, my daughter absolutely loved the room with the bunk beds. That was her favorite!

I absolutely LOVE this home and location!

  • 5 of 5

I can't recommend this home enough! Aside from it being so well kept and clean, it is just so lovely overall...comfortable, open and inviting! I love drinking my morning coffee on the porch swing and viewing the ocean and beach from the deck. The house is located close to the beach and close to everything in town. It's the best! We look forward to going every year!

We always have a wonderful time at this lovely, well-kept home on the coast of Maine. We are a group of friends who usually visit once in the summer, and once off-season. Needless to say, each one of us will list something favorite they love about it. But we do all marvel at the beautiful décor, the creature comforts, the location, the large deck, the views, and the walks we love to take along the path to the Nubble Light house and then to town. It's a very spacious home with a large kitchen and living room.. a place to gather with good friends..or curl up a with a good book!

...Ofcourse, there are great places to have Maine lobster and blueberry pie - Fox's Lobster restaurant is up on the hill.....and up the road from Brown's ice cream...yum!! Lots to see and do in the area...walking on the beach is my favorite thing.

Great thanks to Audrey and Bruce who maintain this lovely home so well and make it such a wonderful place to visit!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Audrey and Bruce-I just wanted to say thank you so much for the wonderful accommodations at your house in York, Maine. What a gorgeous home you have! We absolutely loved it and appreciated all the comforts of home that you provided. We loved the town and surrounding areas. Between the beach, the restaurants, the shops and the parks -- it provided a little something for everyone. It was wonderful renting from you -- your "best of" list was a true hit. We tried to hit each recommendation. And we concur that Sweet Josie does have the best fudge in town. We made that our personal mission to test each spot's fudge. ha ha. And we celebrated our last evening with a huge apple pie from Pie in the Sky. Truly the best pie any of us had ever eaten.Attached is a photo of our crew at the Nubble Light House. Again, thank you for your accommodations and hospitality. We had a great time!Sincerely,The Gryglewicz Family
