A very comfortable, clean home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Met with owners upon arrival..very hospitable and explained all amenities in detail. Home is very, very clean, updated and filled with everything one needs for comfortable living. Just a short 5 min. walk to beach..close enough but far enough away to have a quiet home. Little store and donor at the end of the street and Rye is a very interesting area with restaurants and shopping within a short jaunt. Everything one needs for the beach is available at the house. The main deck is large with plenty of seating and the deck off the master is a perfect place to enjoy a coffee or a nightcap. The neighborhood is very well kept and very quiet. Would recommend this house to anyone and everyone and plan on renting it again in the future. Thanks again to Jon and Jean for making our time in Rye hassle-free and welcoming....they are wonderful hosts.

Winter Renter

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cape for the 2012-2013 and 2013-2014 winter seasons. The home is on a quite street, walking distance from the beach. My children felt at home and safe there. The kitchen is sunny and open. The house is fully furnished and very well-maintained. The owners keep it very clean as well. In the winter the beach area is pretty well deserted so traffic is not an issue. I enjoyed the close proximity to Portsmouth and Newington. This home was a very pleasant way-station for my family as we searched for a new permanent home.

Beautiful sunny and homey home!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful stay! The owner was accessible but not overbearing - made us feel welcome. The kitchen was stocked with supplies and there were plenty of linens. The house was clean and easily fit our family of 4 and a grandparent visit.

The beach is a very short walk with two little boys (5 and 7) it was maybe 5 min; Rye General Store was on our way to the beach; Science Center was a very short drive; Kittery Outlets were a 15 min drive. Did I mention the beach? Beautiful with plenty for the kids to do -crabbing, surfing, sand castle building and just swimming. Just a perfect location!!!

Thank you for sharing your home with us. Would highly recommend. We will be back!

Great week!

  • 5 of 5

The place was neat as a pin, and very comfortable for our family. The owner came over and showed us how to use certain things, so we did not have anything to learn. Nice quiet neighborhood. The beach is close enough so we could go home for lunch, or just wander down at night to watch the sun rise or set.

A great family-friendly rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have so loved our stay at this beautiful home! The owners have taken such care in furnishing and equipping the house with those necessary items and truly excel in providing a great rental experience. The home is on a quiet residential street and it is just a quick walk to beautiful Jenness Beach—the best beach in the area, especially if you don’t care for the typical tourist-filled beaches. The home is bright and sunny and the sound of the ocean from the windows is very relaxing. The fenced in back yard is such an advantage with young children and the TV room and basement are added bonuses as well. Major shopping, restaurants and Water Country are less than 10 minutes away . The home is also in a great central location between Massachutes and Maine (20 minutes in either direction), making day trips very convenient. In addition, the coastal drive down Route 1A (Ocean Boulevard) is absolutely breath taking. The house, the location and the owners can’t be beat; and as a family with four young children, we highly recommend this rental home to anyone looking for a truly relaxing and family-friendly vacation experience.

Great Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful and relaxing week's vacation at this lovely beach house. The home's location is fantastic ... just a very short walk to the beach. When we arrived at the home, we were delighted to see that what we saw on the internet was what we got ... a nicely decorated home in good condition. While the home is not luxurious, it is very nice. We had occasion to call the owner once while we were staying at the rental and found him to be wonderful and responsive. I would recommend this rental and hope to stay there again next year.

Stroll across Ocean Boulevard to the sandy two mile Jenness Beach on the beautiful New Hampshire seacoast. The area allows for enjoyment of several water sports; swimming, surfing, boating, fishing, whale watching, and boat cruises from nearby Rye Harbor. It is is minutes from Water Country, Strawberry Banke, and Odiorne State Park. Enjoy numerous local seafood restaurants on Ocean Boulevard (Ray's, Petey's, Saunder's) that are within a short drive or walk to the award winning Carriage House Restaurant for a romantic dinner. In addition, enjoy strolling through the unique shops of historic downtown Portsmouth or shopping at the outlets in Kittery.
