Des vacances familiales fabuleuses!

  • 5 of 5

Pour la deuxième année consécutive nous avons loué la maison de Mme Sleeper et nous avons été encore une fois enchantés de notre séjour. La maison est suffisamment grande pour accueillir les trois générations de notre famille, soit huit adultes et quatre bébés de moins de 2 ans, les chambres pouvant facilement accommoder un parc pliable pour enfants. La maison est impeccable, la literie et quantité de serviettes sont fournies.

La proprio a tout prévu pour nous faire passer des vacances sans tracas, tout y est: cuisine complètement équipée avec tous les appareils électroménagers nécessaires, les casseroles et la vaisselle en quantité nécessaire pour un grand groupe. Les condiments et sucre, farine, etc garnissaient le garde-manger. Tous les produits de nettoyage sont inclus, y compris le savon à main, le savon à lave-vaisselle, serviettes de table, papier essuie-tout, etc. La laveuse et sécheuse incluant savon et assouplisseur se sont avérés indispensables avec 4 bébés.

Tout a été prévu pour la plage, chaises, parasols, serviettes, jouets pour les enfants, planches à vagues pour les plus grands, même un parc pliable ultra léger pour la sieste des bébés sur la plage! Un chariot de plage a même été prévu pour transporter le tout! La plage est vraiment au coin de la rue. L La plage est propre et est visitée principalement par les gens qui habitent ce petit développement résidentiel de Kinney Shore. Le jeudi soir à 21h45, le feu d'artifice de Old Orchard est, en prime, visible de la plage!

Même les enfants n'ont pas été oubliés: sous l'escalier qui mène aux chambres se trouve la caverne d'AliBaba, soit une foule de jouets et de livres, même en français! Il y a aussi un siège d'appoint pour eux.

Le grand balcon où trônent des chaises berçantes nous a permis de beaux moments de tranquillité et la possibilité d'observer les étoiles filantes des Perséides, au moment de notre séjour. Le soir tout est calme.

Pour ceux qui aiment la vie nocturne, Old Orchard n'est qu'à quelques minutes en voiture. A Saco, à 10 minutes de voiture, on trouve un grand supermarché et plusieurs marchands de homards qui, sur un coup de fil, vous préparent un repas complet de fruits de mer que vous pouvez déguster à la maison.

On y retourne l'an prochain? Bien sûr!!!!

Deux tables de jardin pouvant asseoir 10 personnes et un BBQ au gaz (inclus) nous invitent à manger dehors sur la terrasse ombragée.

Wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a stay here. It was amazing!!!! This home really has everything you would ever need! We stayed here with 2 families. 4 adults and 4 kids and had plenty of room! Every detail was accounted for..... towels, linens, beach towels, beach chairs (tons), beach umbrella, beach toys, skim boards, boogie boards! When the owner told us that all we needed to bring was food, she was right!! The home is absolutely beautiful, very new looking!

It is in a perfect location for heading out on day trips to Portland or Freeport shopping or heading south to Kennebunkport or York!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and hope to be back!!

Home away from home...

  • 5 of 5

Having great memories of going to the beach for summer vacations made this year even more special. The bungalows of our youth can't compare to this wonderful cottage in Saco. Everything the places in our past didn't have, this had and more. Being a stones throw from the beach was fantastic. All of the conveniences of home were there and then some. I wish our TV setup was this good.There were 8 of us and it didn't feel at all crowded. The owners obviously have put a lot of love into the place, it shows in how well it has been taken care of. This is where "Mr. Hobbs" should have taken his vacation. Thanks for sharing your place with us...we'll be back.

Quite Comfortable and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in 2010 and I loved the cottage. Obviously from the enthusiastic entries in the guestbook, everyone does. The decor has a breezy, beachy feel to it and makes you feel right at home. The cottage was well-stocked with everything we needed from games for a rainy day to thick towels in the bathrooms.

It's just a short walk to the beach where you can walk and walk; looking for shells, people watching or just enjoying the view and the feel of the sand beneath your feet. Take the beach chairs and relax if that's what you prefer.

It's not far to the local shops where you can spend some time or to take day trips on the ferry to the islands in Casco Bay or to wander around Portland.

Our cottage is a 50 yard walk to the breathtaking 7-mile sand beach with views of several lighthouses and the islands. Did I mention low tide? You can walk for miles and the kids love to build sand castles for hours and play in the puddles during low tide. Approximately 1 mile to Ferry Beach State Park with ponds and trails for walking, running or biking. 1/2 mile walk from the Ocean Park community and their famous Soda Fountain (great ice cream and penny candy). 2 miles from Camp Ellis where the Saco River meets the ocean. You will find a few restaurants, quaint fishing harbor and mile long jetty, kayak rentals, whale watching tour boats and public boat launch. 2 miles from Old Orchard Beach's attractions. For those that want to venture a little further. About 15 miles north you will find Portland; the Old Port-several excellent restaurants, quaint shopping, a children's museum, theater. 15 minutes south, Kennebunkport, Maine, need I say more. Also, golf and tennis nearby.
