Decorator's Dream Cottage at Long Sands

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,400 sq. ft.
Property type cottage


About the property

- 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, sleeps 8

Less than a block from Long Sands Beach, this charming 2 story, 4 bedroom cottage was extensively remodeled and redecorated in 2004 with the comfort and enjoyment of vacationers in mind. Perfect for a family of 8, 3-4 couples or even a romantic getaway for two. The large family room features a multimedia entertainment center, 2 sofas and a puzzle table. The dining room with dry bar and a breakfast peninsula adjoin the well-equipped kitchen, where the chef will enjoy the spacious layout with great appliances, including a 5-burner gas range with dual ovens. The furnished private patio with gas grill is great for evening dinners and get-togethers.

Each of the four bedrooms are cozy & comfortable, & the two full baths easily accommodate the whole gang. A/C on both floors handle those muggy summer nights, or open the windows and let in the ocean breeze.

The cottage is equipped with 4 TVs (1 Plasma HD), 2 DVD players (1 Blu-ray), cable HDTV, TiVo & wireless Broadband Internet.

Additional Amenities:: Broadband Internet access, digital cable TV with HD local & sports channels, unlimited local & long distance calling (within US) and reserved parking for 2 cars (maximum) are also included. Additional parking available within walking distance.

Additional Accommodations: Need room for more people? We have several friends who also rent units within the same complex - we'd be happy to put you in touch with them if you need additional accommodations for a family get-together, wedding parties or a vacation with your friends!

Great house for the weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples stay for the weekend and there was plenty of room. The house is easy to get too, and a short trip to many areas that we wanted to see.

PERFECT!....location, size & comfort

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed with my 4 sisters for the weekend. It could not have been better. The pictures don't do it justice. It's a very cute, clean & spacious house. We had a great time. No need for beach chairs to watch the sunrise or just sit on the beach, plenty for guests to use. Thank you for a wonderful memory my sisters & I will always share. We're already talking about next year ; )

  • 5 of 5

Kathleen & Maureen Marre have done a beautiful job in decorating a beautiful & comfortable beach house. The 4 bedrooms were great with comfortable beds & plenty of room. The kitchen had everything you would need. Dining room had a long table can fit 8 people with no problem. The living room was great at night for watching TV, playing chess, or just relaxing. We had a great time!

Great Girls Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Just had a reunion of 6 college friends. The cottage was perfect. It had everything we needed (cork screw and coffee maker were key)! A couple of us took walks on the beach but it was cold! We did enjoy watching a movie and all 6 of us were comfy on the couches with our throw blankets. The house was clean as well, a big bonus. Only one word of caution, a couple of my friends are tall, 5 10 and the upstairs bath and bedrooms were a bit small for them. Us shorties were fine. Thank you!!

Absolutely delightful!

  • 5 of 5

We're so glad we chose this house for our family vacation - everything was perfect! No detail has been overlooked in this beautifully decorated cottage where many big and small amenities made us feel right at home. Our family of 5 adults and 1 child was super comfortable here. The space is very well laid out so that no one felt on top of one another yet we were right there all together. For us some highlights were the long dining table off the kitchen where we enjoyed some great family meals, the comfortable beds, and the gorgeous decor that just invites you to relax. The neighboring cottages are very close but that was not a problem, it was quiet and everybody was very friendly. There's limited outdoor space for grilling but it is there if you want to use it. Last but not least, the location of this cottage simply can't be beat. Literally a 2-minute walk to the beach, so we enjoyed early-morning bike rides along the beach, lots of time on the sand, and after-dinner walks for ice cream while watching the moon come up. The owner was wonderful to deal with, very responsive even when we had questions while on-site. Only glitch was our vacation was over all too soon!

Car: recommended

It's just a hop and a skip down to Long Sands Beach for a stroll or a day in the sun (OK - it's about 103.4 yards to the beach). Or, you can jump on the trolley and visit the all of the Yorks at your leisure, without the parking hassles.

The cottage is centrally located for all area attractions, including Nubble Light, Water Country and the York Wild Animal Kingdom. Enjoy eclectic shops along the streets of the Yorks and Ogunquit, the outlets in Kittery, or the antique stores along Route 1 and in nearby Dover or Essex. There is fishing, whale watching, kayaking, and golf available nearby as well as many great restaurants. And no trip to York is complete without a stop at Flo's for her world-famous hot dogs. . . . . . . Be sure to check out the York Chamber of Commerce calendar of events for special attractions, including free concerts at the gazebo on Short Sands Beach.

Other Activities: Amusement park, arcade, skim boarding, kite flying, playground
