This was the best vacation we have ever had! We have a 4 and 2 year old and they loved it! We could hear the ocean every night while sleeping and enjoyed the beach during the day. The first floor bedroom was perfect for my sister who stayed with us. Felt like she had her own suite. Loved being able to walk to the local restaurant Buffleheads too! Everything was perfect!
VERY WEEL APPOINTED
THE ONLY THING WAS THAT WE NEEDED TO PROVIDE OUR OWN BEDSHEETS AND TOWELS.
THIS THOUGH WOULKD NOT HOLD ME BACK.GREAT TIME THANK YOU
Thank you for a truly enjoyable week.
We had a wonderful week at 125 Hills Beach Road. We had perfect weather and a beautiful rental. The house was lovely and everything we needed for our adult family to enjoy our week on the ocean. The downstairs suite worked perfectly for our daughter, son in law and their one year old son. The bedrooms on the second floor were clean, comfortable and fit all needs for rest of the family. The view from the living room was breathtaking from sunrise to the beautiful evening sunsets. We also enjoyed walking down property steps to the waterfront and our daily strolls thru the quiet neighborhood. There was a public beach in our view but we had no reason to leave the property for beach fun. Thank you, Raymond for a exceptional stay and we hope to see you next summer. Faye
Perfect ocean view!
This was a vacation for our entire family: 8 adults and 3 grandchildren.
The view was breathtaking. The house was very clean upon arrival. The owner was very kind
and showed us some of the important points about the house.
The yard is adequate and the grill is large. The stairs to access were a bit intimidating but were in good condition.
Two of the beds were reasonably comfortable but the remaining beds were not. The sleeper sofa in the living room was not working well according to the owner. That left us one sleeping surface short.
The garbage was very confusing as we filled up the main receptacle and had only one orange bag for the overflow. I looked for an orange bag at Hannaford but was unable to find one.
Some of the windows in the downstairs bedroom did not open so we weren't able to get a good breeze in that room. The same with the living room, although with the ceiling fans we were very comfortable in there. The downstairs bathroom shower door was tricky to operate. It rained very heavily the night before we left, and the downstairs bathroom ceiling had a significant leak during the night.
We had to contact the owner about the wifi as it was not found on the paperwork.
These were fairly minor problems and were reported to the owner. Overall, this was a magical vacation with our children and grandchildren. The beach was very quiet which was good for the kids to explore and fly kites.
Comfortable cottage with lovely scenic beach
My family and I throughly enjoyed our stay on Hills Beach. The cottage was clean with a well equipped kitchen and comfortable furniture. We loved being able to eat our meals at the outdoor picnic table while enjoying the sea breeze and views of the water and islands. The beach is wide at low tide and ideal for younger children to paddle around and play in the sand. It is a perfect area for paddle boarding or kayaking and exploring the nearby islands. Mr. Cronkite, the owner, could not have been more helpful in responding to any requests that we had. I have given 4 stars because there is limited parking, and the steep stairs leading to the beach make this cottage inappropriate for someone with limited mobility. However, I highly recommend this home if you are looking for a peaceful vacation with comfortable accommodations and a gorgeous view.
Relaxing vacation with stunning views
This was one of the best vacations my family and I have every been on! The hills beach home was a perfect home for my inlaws and our family of four to stay! Everyday felt like a dream waking up to the sound of waves and a stunning sunrise! We all couldn't wait for low tide to go out and explore the beach and all it's critters like hermit crabs, clam shells, and seagulls. We could enjoy Old Orchard beach fireworks on thursday right from the family room. The house was so open and just perfect for 1 and 2 yr olds to run and crawl around! Raymond was very helpful and greeted us on arrival with great recommendations for the area! Wolfe Farm & Lobster is a must for fresh steamed lobsters. And don't underestimate the citgo with a deli inside (had take out almost everyday). Buffleheads restaurant is a 2 minute walk away and is excellent! Loved our stay and everything about it! The house had everything we needed and more! Thank you Raymond for opening your home to us!
