Beautiful quiet views - Located in Camp Ellis, Saco, (southern coast of Maine). Ocean property - This adorable very clean year-round home is 900 feet from 7 miles of beautiful beach. Added Plus - it is just as close to the Saco River - you can put your kayak in at high tide right from the end of the property into the river tidal marsh. A large deck, with a corner view of the Saco River, is completely gated in for your little one. The screened-in front porch is great night relaxing or enjoy the outside fire on the deck with the open fire pit. Fireworks close by every Thurs. night in season. Quiet community just minutes from amusements, water slides, hiking in the state forest, and monkey ropes or quiet walks to the Marina or General Store.

Clean, comfortable, and convenient

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The place was immaculately clean when we arrived, and everything in the house was in good working order. There's a surprising amount of "living space" because of the open floor plan, the screened porch and the back deck. The house is a short walk from the beach, the general store, and the marina. Several other beaches and state parks are within a short driving distance. Although the neighborhood is densely built up, it was quiet when we were there, the weekend after Labor Day. There was no WiFi, but an ethernet cable was provided.

Adorable place with an easy walk to a quiet beach

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this place to friends and family. It was clean and well equipped. A short walk will bring you to the beach, fishing off the pier or eating at a great restaurant. We all had a great time!

Clean Comfortable and a Great View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The place was very clean and comfortable. The deck out back is huge and has a great view. Five minute walk to a great beach, two minute walk to a nice store. The trolley bus will pick you up right in front of the house and bring you to Old Orchard Beach for $1. The kids love riding the trolley bus. The shower had nice water pressure and the outside shower was nice as well. Fire pit out back, we never used because we were always too tired to stay up too late. Great breeze blows through the house and stays cool at night. Will definitely stay here again.

Quaint beach neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

House was as advertised-clean, in good repair, comfy. Everything was easily biked to...because we love to bike, but also walkable. Beach is close, kayaking, restaurants, and neighborhood convenience store nearby. We loved Ferry Beach State Park for biking, beach, and nature center.

Missed being able to hear the surf, or even see the ocean from the property, but the backside of the house borders a marsh that is fed at high tide by the Saco River, and we saw an array of interesting birds.

Great End Of Summer Getaway For Our Family!!

  • 5 of 5

We just can't say enough about how much we enjoyed staying in this home! The house was a great location within walking distance to the beach in a sweet neighborhood setting. We felt right at home and relaxed as soon as we walked in the door. Cooking a few family meals was a breeze in the well equipped kitchen and eating our meals out on the HUGE back deck was a pleasure. My only regret is that we could not stay longer! We would love to stay here again :-) Kitty

Nice cottage at good location

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay, the house is well equipped and is well situated for many outings (Portland, Kennebunk, beaches etc).

We particularly liked the nice deck with the grill and view!
