Fantastic Family Getaway on Short Sands!

  • 5 of 5

This property is just a few hundred feet from Short Sands, and within a very short walk to the playground, Fun-O-Rama, Goldenrod, etc. You can literally watch the waves roll into the beach from the front yard.

The building is very modern, well kept, and possesses every amenity that you could possibly want; right down to the lobster pot, charcoal grill, and utensils. It easily sleeps up to 10 people without a sense of being overcrowded. Having 3 bathrooms makes getting ready each morning much easier for everyone.

Super child-friendly, I cannot recommend this place highly enough to families with small children.

The only downside is that parking is very tight, and you can only fit two, maybe three very small vehicles. This was not an issue for us during the off-season, though.

The owners are great to work with, communicate well, and go out of their way to solicit opinions on how to improve an already fantastic place.

We certainly hope to visit again!

Owner's Response: There is actually room for 3 medium size cars but it requires parking the third car behind the other 2.

The property was fantastic.

  • 5 of 5

The property was a bid factor in the success of our vacation. I would recommend this property and Ed Shimbob to anyone. We arrived very early (3:00AM). The house was ready for us. Ed even had the lights inside and outside on for us. What a welcome after a very long day of travel (South Dakota to Maine). We will return someday. Thanks Ed for your hospitality.

Wonderful Vacation at the Carriage House

  • 5 of 5

We have rented different homes in the area on 3 different occasions and found the Carriage House to be the best by far! It's close proximity to Short Sands made it very easy to walk to and from the beach with little ones. The house was clean and neat upon arrival and nicely appointed throughout. The lovely downstairs suite of rooms was an added bonus and made a great place for my husband and I to get away from the chaos of grandkids! It comfortably accommodated seven of us and we had plenty of room for a visit from two more family members at the end of the week. I must add that Ed was a pleasure to do business with and I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Great experience every year!

  • 5 of 5

My family has been renting from Ed since my 5 year old daughter was two months old. It has been such a lovely experience working with Ed. I have been to many other places and rented other houses throughout the United States but he is by the far the most professional and responsive owner. He keeps all his properties pristine. We started out at the cottages and now that we have many new members of the family we have expanded to the Carriage House. Not only are the houses clean and well taken care of the location is fantastic. It is pretty much across the street from the beach and a very short walk to the center of York Beach. York Beach is such a wonderful place to go with children. It is not too simulating and you truly feel like you can relax here even with children. We have all had wonderful family memories in his properties.

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 generation family reunion of 9 (ages 6-64) vacationed here from Oct. 11-14, 2010. We timed our visit to enjoy maximum fall foliage (which didn't disappoint) since children and grandchildren live in Pacific NW (with mostly pine trees.) The fact that it was off-season meant even better rental rates - a bonus! Although some shops/eateries had closed for the season, there remained more than enough open to choose from and enjoy.

As the saying goes, "Location, location, location!" The location was wonderful-a very short walk to the beach. playground and main street with the shops. The famed Nubble Lighthouse was close by - an easy walk / jog. The town of York is a great midpoint between Boston (we walked the Freedom Trail) and, in the opposite direction, Portland (lighthouse and more.) In between were many charming towns and attractions. There was so much more to do than we had time for.

How many ways are to say "IMMACULATE?" The "clean freaks" in the family all agreed that the Carriage House passed their white glove test with flying colors. The floors, walls, kitchen, bathrooms, dishes, linens - everything was spotless. There were no odors or cover-up scents of room fresheners or cleaning sprays. As two members of the family have MCS - multiple chemical sensitivities-the issue of chemical "triggers" is always a concern. There was no problem at all.

The Carriage House has 3 separate floors - each with a full bath. It worked out just great for our 3 generations! The decor is lovely. The furnishings and fixtures are quality - the kind you would choose for your own home and not expect, but be delighted to find, in a rental. The kitchen is completely equipped with multiple sets of service. Appliances, including washer and dryer, all worked great. A peek in the window of the other units indicated that each place meets the owner's high standards.

We had no issues at all that we needed to contact the owners for. However, there is no doubt we could have easily reached them if needed as they left multiple contact info. They were both generous and kind to work with.

Without hesitation - we will (and already have) recommended this wonderful vacation rental. Thank you to the owners!
