Thanksgiving Reunion in Maine

  • 5 of 5

My husband's family joined us in Maine for the Thanksgiving weekend and we needed extra space so I found this rental on the Home Away From Home website. It was really easy dealing with the owner and he has a local friend to help with any pressing issues. There was a water main break in front of the house and although it was out of the owners' control they were responsive in answering questions etc. The home is a bit dated but it was very clean and had everything we needed. The view is to die for!!!!

Amazing Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our week long stay at this property on Kennebunk Beach. If you are looking for a place to sit back and relax with an amazing ocean view, this is the place.

The house is very sweet and plenty of room for our group (4 adults and 4 children). The rooms were all well kept and comfortable for everyone. We originally worried about the road in front of the house with the kids but there are big rocks placed on the property that made for a nice play area without the worry of the kids any where near the road. We kept the french doors open all the time to enjoy the fresh air and listen to the ocean.

The house was very clean when we arrived and we were given great instructions for what we needed during our week stay.

There are two great beaches very close by, one with a playground that was great for the kids.

The owners were great to work with and kept in touch throughout our stay. They have local relatives to help out if anything is needed.

We would recommend this house and hope to return someday.

Thank you for the great experience!

Dissapointing

  • 2 of 5

The location of the home is wonderful- with great views of the ocean and beaches nearby, the house however, was not in the condition that I would have expected for the amount of rent that was charged.

-When I arrived, the previous tenants garbage was not taken care of and overflowing in the enclosed shed

-The slip covers on the living room sofas were ripped and had not been cleaned by the cleaning service- crumbs and sand were under the sofa cushions.

-The kitchen cupboards were so musty smelling, they are not suitable to store food

-The downstairs bathroom's curtain is so short- offering no privacy to neighbors to the neighboring home

-There was mold growing on the downstairs bedroom floor and the room smelled very musty

-The outdoor furniture was rusted and not in good condition

-The large french door overlooking the ocean had no screens so, had to remain closed to avoid the mosquetos

When I e mailed them photos of all of the items mentioned above and called them to the landlords attention- they did offer to refund me my cleaning fee....

The landlords did correspond with me after my stay assuring me that they had retained a new cleaning service and would attend to the items I called to their attention. They live on the west coast- so rely on relatives to care for the property. It could be a wonderful vacation home, with more care.

Owner's Response: We appreciate your input in regard to our rental home at Kennebunk Beach. We are terribly sorry that your stay last summer was less than satisfactory due to the various items that you mentioned in your review. Unfortunately we had a negative experience with our cleaning crew in the 2015 rental season. As soon as it was brought to our attention that the cleaning crew was not meeting our high standards, we terminated that company and immediately hired a new house cleaner who has subsequently done a fabulous job. That was first and foremost on our list of improvements, as cleanliness and comfort is an absolute priority to us at the beach house. We addressed the other items of concern by doing the following: * The carpet in the downstairs bedroom was ripped out and the moisture was sealed. We then installed beautiful new wood floors in the bedroom and attached closet. * We replaced our living room set with a new 9 foot sofa and two new plush swivel chairs for extra comfort. * Almost all the curtain panels throughout the house have been replaced, as well as all the bed quilts, bath mats, and pillows. The curtain in the downstairs bathroom was replaced with one that more than covers the window. * We have updated our house instructions to inform our guests how to properly stow their garbage prior to departing the property, as garbage pick up day is Thursday, and most guests depart on Saturday. * We follow up with our guests after each stay to ensure that the house was up to par in terms of cleanliness, functionality and comfort. As owners, we count on the feedback we receive from our guests to guide us in our efforts to constantly improve upon the quality and comfort of their stay in our home.

Fabulous Beach House!

  • 5 of 5

As a family with two young children AND visiting grandparents, we found that this house provided the perfect setting for our Kennebunk beach vacation! The location is in an ideal spot. It is close enough to Mother's and Gooch's for us all to walk to the beach, and yet far enough away that the crowds did not interfere with our lovely ocean view and the sounds of the waves on the rocks across the street.

The kids AND grandparents equally enjoyed the indoor space and the lawn in the front of the house for games and sunset gazing- which made it stress free for us.

The house is clean, well kept, simple, and, even though the owners were accessible/responsive via phone and email, there were very clear instructions as to cleanup and maintenance.

We highly recommend this property for a Kennebunk vacation!

Our Favorite Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this property for a week every year for the last 4 summers. You can not beat the view from this spot. The owners are fantastic to deal with. They made some wonderful changes to the property this year that made our stay even more enjoyable. The house is very comfortable and has everything a family could need for a vacation at the beach. We just returned and our children are already asking when we can go back to "our Maine house." We will definitely be back again next year. We highly recommend this spot!
