Perfect Retreat CLOSE to Beach!

  • 5 of 5

I loved my retreat to this home in the beautiful Maine fall. I stayed for a full month and enjoyed every minute of this cozy home. The beach is a short stroll away, seriously less than a block and can be seen from the street in front of the home. The glassed in porch could not be more inviting and you will find lots of pamphlets and information here for the surrounding area activities, dining, Amtrak, etc. The kitchen is fully and quality stocked. The Patio was perfect for unloading wet beach shoes and for my puppy to get washed down. Parking was easy and secure. The home was plenty roomy when my friends visited for a week and we slept 5 adults comfortably. Having two bathrooms with all those Women was

a welcome treat and the TVs in the bedrooms too. Lots of games and things to do on down times. These hosts were super easy to work with and even went out of their way to return an important piece of luggage I left behind immediately. Thank you all so much for providing a lovely home and vacation!! If I could arrange it, I would return here every year. The beach? Love Love Love it anytime of day or night!!

Beach House Happiness!

  • 5 of 5

This beach house offered everything and more! The finishing touches added to the charm of this well-appointed home.

Having air conditioning in the bedrooms was a huge benefit and not often found in rentals. The screened-in front porch was a favorite, however, we enjoyed all of the inviting rooms throughout the week.

Steps to the beach and perfect for morning walks through Ocean Park, this beach house was perfect in so many ways.

If I had one complaint it would be that we had to leave this incredibly comfortable home away from home.

Lovely Home By The Sea

  • 5 of 5

It is a well thought out vacation home,we had family from 10 months on up there is something for everyone. My favorite room is the Shark Room its so comfortable,its accurate the description of the place,clean and close to sea. We love Ocean Park its 10 minute walk or few minute bike ride and the same to The Pier. We found great takeout place Pine Tree Seafood it had 5 star rating on Yelp,their shrimp roll is so good. Can't wait till next year.

Awesome Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing!! They thought of everything any guest may ever need. We were well within walking distance to the beach and the pier. The back patio and grill was used nightly the entire week week we were there. Am looking forward to another visit! Thank you again for an amazing vacation!

Great Location - house has everything you need!!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location, cute house would definitely go back!! We stayed for a week in August, I read the reviews saying the house was fully stocked with chairs, beach buggy, beach toys, beach umbrella, paddle ball ect - but I still packed mine anyway (you never know) Definitely didn't need to bring 1/2 the stuff we brought, they have EVERYTHING you need! Close enough to the center - kids can definitely make the walk without complaining its too long, walking distance to Pirates Cove & steps from the beach!!! Cute house, plenty of room - we loved the backyard & the front porch is a perfect place to relax after the beach! On the porch you'll find take-out menus & also Cheryl & Mike had suggestions on were to go eat & when the Pier has fireworks no need to walk to the center & deal with the crowds you have a GREAT view right on the beach on Union Ave. Right at the corner of Union Ave you'll find a great little breakfast/take out place & a convenient store on the other side! The ONLY recommendation I would give is to eventually replace the carpets on the stairs & in the bedrooms, but other than that this is a great home!! Had a blast!!!!

Ideal location! Steps to a world-class beach -- a beautiful 7-mile stretch. A perfect spot to enjoy New England Fall Foliage.

Head the other way and you'll find antique shops, and the quaint village of Ocean Park with shuffleboard, gift shops, and an ice cream shop.
