Great little gem in Pine Point
We have rented John & Clare's apartment on numerous occasions. We always come back because it's the perfect getaway, it's well situated in the quiet little town of Pine Point which is a far cry from the more busy & crowded Old Orchard. The apartment is comfortable, clean and well equipped with a small backyard with BBQ. It's just across the street from the beach which is beautiful and much less crowded than Old Orchard. The owners John & Clare live just next doors and are the most wonderful hosts always there if you need anything and great just to talk to. They always have a great story to tell. We highly recommend this apartment.

Well cared for property - Very comfortable stay
Everything needed for a comfortable beach stay was provided. The owners are on-site, and take a gracious interest that all runs smoothly for their guests. Other resident neighbors were warm and inviting. Overall a very pleasant experience.
We are always happy to meet our guests and always try to meet their vacation needs by providing immaculate , convenient , comfortable facilities across the road from a wonderful 7 mile long sandy and never crowded beach. We look forward to seeing you return .
Cozy, Clean, Convenient, Affordable!
While searching for a non-motel setting near Pine Point and Old Orchard Beach, I stumbled across this rental on Home Away. Although I was weary about booking this place sight unseen I decided to take a chance and go for it. The on-site photos looked really nice but you know what they say about photos. Upon arriving at our rental my husband and I were pleasantly pleased at how accurate the pictures were. The owners of this property have thought of everything, right down to the special coffee filters that fit the coffeemaker. Everything in this rental is immaculate. Short walk to the beach (80ft.). If your interested in spending the evening at Old Orchard, the trolley stops right across the street at the Holiday Inn on the hour. This is a nice perk as parking fees at Old Orchard can be $$$. Although the landlords share the other half of the property you never see them unless you have a problem and they attend to it A.S.A.P.
I've lost track but I think we have been renting here for 4 years and have already rebooked for 2017.
Thanks so much for taking the time to write the review . We look forward to seeing you in 2017
We have stayed at this location several times, and will return there again. The cottage a two minute walk from the best beach (IMO) in southern Maine. Old Orchard beach is 2 miles to the South.
It is clean and well kept up. The owners live in the other half of the duplex, and are available to handle any problems. Small yard with a gas grill, washer and dryer on site.
We are always happy to please our renters and look forward to seeing you in 2017.
This immaculate cottage is on Maine's premier 7 mile long,wide ,sandy beach , perfect for sunning, running or strolling .This is not the typical rock bound coast of Maine . It is really unique . Located in a residential area , the cottage is only a few mile from every service or activity one could wish , for any age traveler . Come once and you will be eager to return each year .
