About Norman

I live about 30 minutes away with my wife Laurie and daughter Zoe. We personally get the house ready for your arrival so you can start relaxing and enjoying your vacation.

Norman purchased this house in 2007

Why Norman chose Old Orchard Beach

My wife Laurie and I saw the potential for this house to be a great place for families to vacation and make memories. We have had several families return year after year.

What makes this house unique

The wraparound porch is a great place to enjoy your morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail after a fun day at the beach. The roof deck is off the kids bedroom and they love hanging out there.

Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have rented this house 2 years in a row and we just booked for next year. This house has everything you need! There are plenty of beds for our family of 5 and occasional visitors. I love the kitchen because it's big and has everything you need for cooking. There's also a grill and picnic table outside. The living room is spacious and bright with an ocean feel. I have coffee every morning on the wrap around porch. At night, we sit on the top deck and watch the lights on the ocean. The house is an easy walk to the pier, restaurants and the beach. I have a big family so it's great to be close enough for bathroom breaks. There's a shed in back for everything you'd want for the beach. Blanket, chairs, umbrellas, body boards, and a big wagon for carrying everything. And when you're done swimming, there's an outdoor shower to rinse off the kiddos. The bathroom is stocked with clean white towels and a couple of beach towels. There's a washer/dryer that's better than my own, and even detergent! And most important to me, it's CLEAN. Norm does an incredible job at keeping the house clean and bright. I see complaints on this site about the train, but we have grown to love the train and anyone who knows OOB knows you can hear it from anywhere. It's a piece of OOB history! I recommend this vacation rental 100% and I guarantee you'll be completely satisfied with the house and the kindness of the owner. We'll be back every year!

A train runs near it

  • 3 of 5

House was clean and ready to go, the owner was accommodating. lots of things to do locally. In the rental listing it should have been mentioned that trains run throughout the night every night. the house is about 600 ft from crossing and the horn sounded at least 3-4 times each time a train came through, very annoying.I am still waiting on security deposit.

Looking for a full night's sleep

  • 3 of 5

This home is clean and ready to grow.Owner was very accommodating but I could not get past the train that ran all hours of the night. both Amtrak and freights. It would have been one thing if they ran through the day but it should have been mentioned in this listing as the tracks were about 600 ft from the home and when they came by because it was a crossing they would blow the horn at least 3-5 times. should have bought vaca ins because I would have used it. I am still waiting on my deposit since 6/27/15

A great summer vacation house!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific house for a summer vacation. The location couldn't be better; literally a 5 minute walk straight down the street to the beach. Just far enough away from the pier and activities to be quiet and peaceful but a quick 10-15 minute walk and you are right in the hub of it all for evening excitement. The three bedrooms were the perfect set up for our two families vacationing together; the kid's bedroom upstairs (with three beds) and the two extra bedrooms for parents was just what we needed. Also, one just shouldn't even think of vacationing at the beach without an outdoor shower and this house has a great one, very convenient. It has everything you need: linens, bath towels (bring your own for the beach), beach chairs, large sheets to lay on the sand, boogie boards, sand toys etc. Leave all your kitchen gadgets at home as this kitchen is fully stocked no matter what you want to cook. Need to grocery shop when you get here, Hannaford Supermarket is less than a 10-minute drive. We've been going to this house for quite a few years and have always had a great time; it's a terrific set up. Thank you Norm, Laurie & Zoe!!

Rent with confidence

  • 5 of 5

With one more bathroom, this would be ever better than excellent. Typical beach house inside, but Norm keeps it very clean. Far enough, yet close enough to the Pier. Would recommend for a small to medium sized family. Owner was great to communicate with. Thanks again Norm.
