Guestbook comments from the manager

We have come 5 years in a row to this wonderful, family, beach house. We travel from Canada and are welcomed by Pauline each time. She is warm, friendly and so bubbly, that she makes my wife and I giggle. The house is better perfect w 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, beach scene out of every window. We look forward to our week every year, we leave saying, It's better than Christmas. I hope we have many more years here... can't wait until July 2011

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about this home, my family and I arrived to sounds of Ocean waves and cool breezes wafting through the house. We had an absolutely wonderful time, the home literally sits steps away from the beach, house was very clean and well appointed. I had a few issues when I arrived (mostly because I'm a guy and don't read the directions which are provided;) Pauline (The owner) was most gracious and handled my questions within minutes. I would highly recommend this house if you are considering renting on OOB...

Perfect Beach Stay

  • 5 of 5

I rented this place for the week of 4th of July and could not have chosen a better spot. The four rooms worked perfect for us. Each room has their own bathroom and shower if you include the outdoor shower. You are steps from the beach and plenty of on-street parking for guests.

The upstairs kitchen and deck was perfect for hosting/gathering. You have a perfect view of the beach from up there. We saw the fireworks at the Pier, located about a mile away. The distance to the Pier was great: close enough to walk to yet far enough to keep the beach not crowded.

I would stay here again. Highly recommend staying here. The owner was very responsive despite some personal issues she had at the time of our stay. Thanks again Pauline.

Awesome House

  • 5 of 5

I just came back from a wonderful weekend with 10 women. The house was a perfect fit for us for many reasons. The new kitchen is beautiful, and so very easy to work in. We didn't lack for anything we needed to cook in there every night, and we are a group of foodies. There were 3.5 baths, which made getting ready so much easier for us. The views from the house are spectacular, especially sunrises, and the access to the beach made for wonderful morning walks for us each day. I found Pauline very easy to work with, and would be happy to go back there if she will have us.

Amazing beach house rental

  • 5 of 5

This is the "best house we've ever rented. Typically we rent in Cape Cod but went out on a limb 3 years ago and now this is our home away from home. The Owners are great! Pauline is a nurse by day and let's you know if she doesn't call back it's because she is with a patient. She's always available by text or e-mail. The house is spotless, she attracts great families who use it as if its their own. We look forward to returning, hoping to get a prime week The same people come back every year and we are on the list when one can't make it. Thanks for making this a wonderful place for our family..until next year!

The location was very nice, and convient. The neighbors freindly and welcoming. Our problems and the reason for low rating came from a lack of response from the owner in attempts to contact her. We had know idea what to do with garbage, ours and the prior tenants that was stinking up the garage. The dish washer didnt work and there was not a stock of toilet paper or paper towels, we spent the week never seeing or being able to reach the owners and since have requested our depoit and again without response.... hate to have to give a low rating on a nice property but these issues need to be addressed.

Owner's Response: This is our first negative report in 8 years of being in the rental business. This renter is a new one, all other weeks have been secure year after year, repeat customers for the love of our house and our hospitality. The garbage goes out as spelt out on the hand out given to all renters. We supply toiletries to get you started, we do not or ever have provided for the week. When new weeks open, I will screen better as one bad apple spoils it all. Reasons for holding deposits are due to trashing our home and having broken beds, also, Staining with oil on new carpets. I plan to bill in full going forward with these last time tenants. To all of you who have been wonderful over the years. Attitude of gratitude to you!

This place is so nice! We've stayed here and will go back again. The second floor is so nice! (Nicer than my house) and the first floor is more cottagy but tons of space to "get away" from the rest of the crowd if you need to. Old Orchard is a great beach and this house is far enough from the pier that you don't get any noise, but close enough to walk.

Pine Point Old Orchard beach line. Only one house back on the beach...Beautiful approx 2500 sq ft home, sleeps approx 12, plus, Incredible views, nice sandy beach. Keep in mind, this home is walking distance to Old Orchard's famous Pier and amusement parks. Within a half a mile you can enjoy fantastic lobster and Maine clams. Portland is fifteen minutes away, The 'Old Port' where you will never find that many bars and restaurants in a small walking distance; L.L. Bean store is just 30 minutes away in Freeport Maine, Look for Maine festivals..for example, the 'Clam bake' in Yarmouth... so much to do in a short time!

Things To Do & Area Sight Seeing : We will have a packet of fun things to do to make the most of your week or two here in Old orchard beach

Our seven-mile long stretch of wide sandy beach is understandably the major attraction. The plasma TV with surround sound..for a quiet night with the kids after a crazy day of sun and fun!

Other Activities: Relax, beach by day, Old Orchard Pier by night, or Movie night right at home
