Tired of cookie cutter condos, cramped spaces or boring decor? Try old fashioned fun with recent updates. This house is close to the ocean (steps away and no streets to cross). Great for large families or friends who like to vacation together to share costs and increase fun. Kid friendly beach with New England's only shore front amusement park less than 10 minute walk. Or 'walk' to Boston via the Downeaster Train with seasonal service from Old Orchard Beach. Small back yard with gas grills, closed in porch, outdoor shower.
I would first like to say that the rental in itself was more than adequate in size and in it's convenience to the beach
( about half the length of a football field) and the pier as well as good restaurants (within walking distance even for this 60+ year old). Perhaps this next comment was something I should have clarified but hadn't even considered, this rental is a duplex with a small shared back yard. Although we had never met our "neighbors" we were able to arrange outdoor eating without infringing on each others meal time. This is not represented in the description and we were surprised. The beds were comfortable, seating was fine for our group, water was hot, kitchen stocked with everything you needed except a wine bottle opener and the appliances all worked well. Fortunately, the nights were still a little cool and fans kept the rooms comfortable. There are window air conditioning units available if needed but we had no problems with just fans. Cathy was a very pleasant owner and communication prior to our arrival date was prompt.
Would I stay there again or suggested to another? Probably, now that I know the setup. When I think about it, it reminded me a little of a camping area, the quarters are a little close, but everyone was friendly and got along
