Southern Coast of Maine House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6) VERY close to an almost private beach!

We want to rent every week this summer!

Remaining availability :

June 28-2...125/night

Everyone loves this completely renovated 2-bedroom cottage 'High View', with a view of the Saco inlet and is just a stone's throw from one of Maine's best rated beaches! It is located on a side street and next to the mouth of the Saco River!

This property also has a 3 br home which we also rent if you need to accommodate multi families. See here vrbo #370618

Wonderfully decorated and renovated. Third property from the beach. New windows in 2015 and planning to reside the outside this year.

Hill's Beach is very quiet and just far enough to get away from all the tourist beaches. For the most part, the only people who frequent this area of beach are those who live on the street, approximately 10 houses. So the large, sandy beach is almost all yours!

A completely enclosed outside shower! Now you can rinse off with warm water after coming up from the beach!

If you have kids (like our family), you will enjoy the peace of mind being on a side street with very little traffic and the large yard for the kids to run and play while they wait for you to go to the beach. Once on the beach you will find a majestic, panoramic view of islands and a jetty...It is fabulous!

Why Jonathan and Carrie Cronkhite chose Southern Coast of Maine

I (Jonathan) grew up down the road. I still have family is up there that lives down the street. Our family loves coming up for a week. It's a great get-a- way. So peaceful. Not a lot of distractions which creates great family time!

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our Chihuahua, just spent two fantastic weeks at this Hills Beach home. My family and I have been renting vacation homes from Maine to Florida, and many states in-between, over the past 16 years. This is the first review I have ever felt compelled to write. The house was very clean, well-maintained, and quite comfortable. The kitchen had all you needed for making dinner at home. There is a very nice outdoor dining set along with a charcoal grill. The beach was beautiful and quiet. It was a great walk out to both Basket Island and Stage Island when the tide was out. There are a couple of markets near by for those quick coffee or ice cream runs. Not to mention all the wonderful local restaurants in the area.

We met Jonathan and two of his boys when we first arrived. They were quite nice and very pleasant to speak with. Jonathan was very responsive to any questions that came up both before and during our stay. Jonathan also rents out a three bedroom house right next door on the same property. My sister, mother, and nephew stayed there during these same two weeks. It was wonderful having them right next door. I can same the same great things about that house as well.

We have already decided that we will be renting these same two houses again next year....I'd better hurry up and get that set up before the weeks we want get booked.

The Cozy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I loved this cottage. Our boys, one and four loved exploring the ocean too. My son said, "My favorite part was watching fireworks from the beach!" We loved walking the beach and collecting shells, too. Our labradoodle enjoyed vacationing with us and was able to swim and walk the beach in the morning and evening. Great location and it really is a short walk to the beach!! We will definitely return:-)

Thanks for renting out your cozy cottage!!

Great Maine cottage steps from beach

  • 5 of 5

I would highly recommend this property for families with children of any age. It's even a perfect getaway for adults. We've been renting at Hills Beach since 2001, when we would bring our baby. There is no surf at Hills Beach so it's perfect for toddlers and young children. It's also a perfect, quiet spot for adults to relax. The only people on the this part of the beach are those staying in the few houses on the street so it's never crowded. Now that my children are teenagers, they still love going to Hills Beach and visiting the other attractions in the area. This cottage was perfect for our family of four. It's a plus that the owner allows pets, so we don't have to board our dog. We had rented other houses directly on the beach but chose this cottage on a side street a couple of years ago so we could bring our dog. It's only a couple houses away from the path to the beach so you can go back and forth to the house easily. We'll be renting this cottage again this summer. The house has all the accommodations you would need and plenty of room for 4-6 people. There's also an outdoor shower so you can rinse the sand off before going inside. It's close to Kennebunkport, Portland, Old Orchard Beach, and other tourist attractions.

Great home in a peaceful beach community

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at High View for a week in July. We have been going up to Maine for years, but this year needed to find a new home that fit our needs (i.e. an 8 month old baby and a 80lb golden retriever). Stakes were high and our wish list was long. I'm so glad we took a chance on High View. Jonathan and Carrie were very responsive to our questions and made the booking process smooth. The home itself is great. Tastefully decorated, fully stocked with essentials for cooking, clean and proofed! It's located just steps to the beach, which is essentially private to the street. Low tide is incredible - you can literally walk to the nearby islands and explore. It's the perfect home if you have very young kids or older family members, as you can come and go from the beach as you please without having to pack everything up. The area itself is just beyond UNE, filled with lovely beach homes & cottages. The area even made for very serene and picturesque morning jogs before we hit the beach. All in all, it met our expectations and more. We hope to return next year!
