Well appointed and convenient

  • 5 of 5

This adorable cottage is immaculate and so comfortable. The best thing about this place , in my opinion, is that you can hang up your car keys upon arrival and walk to Kennebunk art galleries, shops and restaurants! All of the " tourist attractions" of Kennebunkport are just a short stroll away over the bridge. No need to worry about parking or summer traffic!! We'll definitely be coming back.

Ideal location

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in Kennebunkport area for years and as, our kids have outgrown the beach, we were looking for something different. This cottage is great! It is clean, bright and comfortable. You have a short walk to downtown and about a mile walk to Gooch's Beach. Across the street is All Day Breakfast. The best part to me is sitting on the porch in one those rockers and waving at the people stuck in traffic.

So, if you want something that takes away the car factor, this is the place!

Dishonest owner

  • 1 of 5

This is a comfortable cottage, close to downtown and beach but right on a busy and noisy road.

We were quite disappointed that the owner did not return our full security deposit. My husband crashed to the floor during dinner because his chair just gave way. After checking the other chairs, we noticed that most of them looked compromised due to dried up glue. Subsequently we alerted the owner to avoid future injuries.

So we were quite taken aback when she charged US for the poor quality of the chairs.

Needless to say, we will never go back and I would recommend no one does. The owner is dishonest.

Owner's Response: I retained ONE FIFTH of this disgruntled renter's security deposit for the demolished chair. A second chair was cracked and also discarded. I didn't retain enough to cover the cost of one chair, let alone two. The very nature of a security deposit is to cover damage. A completely smashed wooden chair qualifies as damage in my mind. Had I broken a chair in a home I rented I would certainly expect to pay for it. I think that's simply reasonable and fair. I have rented cottages for many years to satisfied guests who return year after year. This is my business and I take it very seriously. I treat people with kindness and honesty with the hope of building a relationship that brings you back as my guest summer after summer. I take pride in the superior condtion of my cottages and I think the photographs accurately depict the conditon of the house. Tina herself said it best....."This is a comfortable cottage."

This cozy cottage is within walking distance to picturesque Kennebunkport. It's an easy 2 minute stroll to wonderful dining and quaint shops. Leave the car at home when everyone else is stuck in traffic and looking for a parking spot! The cottage is less than a mile from beautiful Kennebunk Beach. It's an easy walk to the beach, but parking passes are provided if you prefer to drive. Portland is 30 minutes north. The outlet stores in Freeport are about 45 minutes north. The Kittery outlet stores are 20 minutes to the south. Boston is an hour plus south.
