About Robert McManus

I have vacationed on Hills Beach for over 50 years each summer, with my family as a child (rentals) and as an adult both renting and then buying this house.

Robert McManus purchased this house in 2000

Why Robert McManus chose Southern Coast of Maine

This is a nice quiet family area. You have choices of a number of beaches and easy access to the ocean form the backyard of the property.Beautiful ocean views during the day and big sky at night.Wonderful walks to nearby islands at low tide and quiet kayak rides when the tide is in.

Absolutely fell in love with this space!!! The beauty and all that surrounded it😊

Bob, Thanks so much for such a wonderful stay in your beautiful ocean front home. The accommodations were just what we needed. You advertised it slept eight but you could actually sleep 11 comfortably with the pull out futon that was very comfortable. The views from the deck, amazing. Easy access to the beach across the street. Fun watching the few vehicles get to their homes on Basket Island during low tide. We enjoyed the fire pit too. The location was great too, close to Old Orchard, Kennebunk, and Ogunquit. We hope to return each year around the same time. I think the gals and I have found our yearly summer retreat. Here's hoping we will be able to continue to rent from you. Again, thanks so much, it was totally awesome as we Mainers would say!!!
