About Dan & Christie Fitzgerald, Owners

We are a 6 generation York Beach family having deep roots in 'Concordville' on the Nubble. The property upon which our rental homes are located was purchased in the 1860's by my great-grandfather, one of York's first settlers. Since building our homes and starting this venture in 2007, our greatest joy has been meeting and getting to know our guests who have come from near and far.

What makes this house unique

We strive to provide our guests with the quality of accommodations that we look for when traveling with our family. Because of that, we personally manage, clean and maintain our own properties.

Labor Day Engagement

  • 5 of 5

I'm a former NH resident now living in St. Louis and was looking for a place to propose to my (now) fiance and also allow friends and family to celebrate this special occassion. I was completely satisfied with both the house and our host, Christie.

The house is new and beautiful. All three bedrooms were very well appointed and comfortable. The finished basement also provided sleeping space (queen futon) and was very comfortable. We especially enjoyed relaxing and entertaining on the back deck after a day at the beach.

The location is great if you don't mind a 15 minute walk to the beach. The beautiful Nubble lighthouse and nearby ice cream stand are also close by but if you choose to walk to these, as we did, be very careful of traffic, especially at night! The roads are narrow with lots of corners and nowhere to really get off the road and out of the way. Probably better to drive to, even though it is close by. Christie suggested the Nubble at sunset as a place for me to propose and it was a great suggestion. Such a beautiful and romantic place. And to complete the story, she said yes!

If you like to cook, the house has pretty much everything you need. We did a lobster boil and cooked steaks one night and didn't need to bring a thing -they had it all right there.

In summary, this was a beautiful place, the host was very detail oriented (which is good if you're a renter), and it is close to a lot of neat things to do. Highly recommended for families or adults looking for a place to hang out with other adults.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is a really great, clean, well maintained, nicely decorated property. Very roomy...the teens enjoyed the extra space in the basement room while the adults liked the rocking chairs on the front porch! Nice having a laundry room. Kitchen had just about everything you need. Location is very convenient to downtown York and Short sands beach but we also took the very short ride to Long beach and enjoyed that area also...very limited parking, though, so go early or much later in the day!! But bigger beach area (esp. at low tide) for teens to 'play'! (lots of paddle ball, baseball and other assorted games going on) The walk to Brown's for ice cream is always a treat. Had a really great time!!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was a great vacation home for a large family. Great separation of space when needed, short walk to Short Sands and playground. Short walk to Brown's Ice Cream and Fox's for Lobster and clams. Nice big yard to play ball and games. Linens included was a plus since we came from California. Could use beach towels and internet access, would be a plus.

Best vacation rental by far

  • 5 of 5

This house was so gorgeous. I would definitely rent from the owners again. Before my vacation, we had some bad storms where I live, and the owners emailed me and checked up on my family. I thought that was so sweet. Also, they met us at the rental home and showed us around instead of just leaving the key and letting us find our own way around. The house was clean and located at a great place. We were real close to the Nubble Lighthouse, which was a treat. Also, we were real close to the beach. Easy to walk to the beach. If you eat in York, make sure to stop by Wild Willy's. Yummy!!
