Grande maison bien située

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour en juillet dernier dans cette maison typique d'Old Orchard. La maison était assez spacieuse pour accommoder notre groupe composé de 4 adultes et 4 enfants (4 à 9 ans). Le salon est immense. La florida room s'est avérée très pratique comme zone de transition au retour de la plage. Gale a été très disponible et à l'écoute, de même que Tom, son homme de maintenance qui nous a accueillis. La maison est idéalement située pour être à distance de marche de tout mais pas dans l'effervescence du boardwalk. Nous revenions dîner à la maison à tous les jours. Un chariot était d'ailleurs à notre disposition pour le transport de nos articles de plage. La rue est très tranquille. Nos enfants ont eu plaisir à jouer avec des enfants voisins dans la rue. Un petit bémol est à l'effet que les tables de pic-nic sont situées du côté opposé de la maison, donc assez loin de la cuisine. Nous les avons peu utilisées. Toutefois, après plusieurs heures à la plage, nous appréciions dîner à l'intérieur. Il n'y a pas vraiment d'épicerie dans le village même d'Old Orchard à part un petit marché sympathique de type dépanneur avec petit resto intégré sur le chemin menant à la plage. De belles vacances !

Such a great vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great vacation and loved the house! 4 adults, 3 kids and 2 dogs all fit in this house with plenty of room. When we arrived we were met by the care taker of the house who made sure we were happy with everything before he left. Within a few hours of our arrival Gale, the owner, checked in w us too to make sure we were all set and settled in which was much appreciated. The house was exactly what we were looking for and was a quick walk to the beach and a close enough walk to the Pier/ rides that we walked there every night for games and ice cream. We grilled many nights and also enjoyed s'mores by the fire pit which the kids and adults both loved. We highly recommend this rental house and will definitely be back next year!

Definitely a Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beach house. It was extremely clean and well stocked - not only in the kitchen but also with items for the beach. Our party had 3 adults and 4 teenagers. The beach is just a short walk away and there are 2 small stores on the way. Mini golf at Pirate's Cove is a short walk away as well. We opted to drive to downtown but were fortunate to find on-street parking for a small fee all week long. The pictures on this posting really capture the comfort of the house. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the morning with our coffee and enjoyed making smores over the fire pit at night. The washer and dryer on site came in handy during the week. The caretaker of the property met us upon our arrival and checked in with us during the week, even providing "glow' necklaces for our kids to wear to the fireworks display. Gale, the owner, texted me a few days into our stay to make sure that everything was alright. I highly recommend this property.
