Awesome, Gorgeous Home, Across from Beach

  • 5 of 5

This home is absolutely beautiful. Totally updated in every room, bath, living and kitchen area. The beach is 50 yards away. Beautiful Ocean view from every room. The owner, Dana, is a joy to work with. This was a girls' getaway for 7 days and this is the place to stay. Easy access to Kennebunk. Portland, Freeport, Ogunquit, Wells. Rent a car and all of beautiful Maine is available. Make your base at this home and you will not be disappointed. I just cannot say enough. Above expectations!!!

Lovely apartment; Beautiful views; Great Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was the right spot for a 3 gals getaway. It was so much better than anticipated. The Ocean is just out the front wall of windows across street with a beach - rocky coast & a children's playground 1/2 block away. It is second story but it was a non-factor as the steps are up to a deck with great views. You do need a car as this is not close to town but a nice area for walking & the very private apartment was beautifully equipped. There was not a lot of bedroom storage, 1 closet. Kitchen was lovely & functional & the view incomparable. The landlord Dana - was friendly & helpful. Great choice!

Beautiful property with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

This is a great spot for a beach vacation! Mother’s Beach is just across the street and has a newly renovated children’s playground. The unit is newly renovated with a beautiful new kitchen, bathrooms and laundry area. Extremely clean in all areas of the unit. All bedrooms are lovely and provide a view and sounds of the ocean! The view from the main living areas, including screened porch and outside deck entices hours of gazing at the Maine coastline. The owner was very available and great to work with from the initial contract process to meeting our needs while we were at the beach house. Three generations of our family were accommodated very well in the unit. Owner provides many amenities from bathroom and kitchen supplies to beach chairs, TV with DVD player also. Only lacking in bedroom closet space (only one of bedrooms has a closet, the others have clothes trees/hangers). Proximity to Kennebunkport and long walks on beach make it a great vacation spot! We plan to return again!

Charming 19th Century Beauty with Exceptional Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

All hopes that this apartment would be as wonderful as the online photos were totally exceeded. This was my first experience with VRBO and it was very positive from start to finish. The owner was so helpful in answering my questions in advance of signing the lease, and was equally responsive to all inquiries once we arrived at the property. His knowledge of the home and the surrounding area was extensive (he's a local). We appreciated his warm and welcoming manner when he stopped by to confirm that everything was to our satisfaction. Overall very accommodating.

This wonderful home, circa 1896, has been lovingly updated but still retains the character of an historic property. This was particularly appealing to our family as we were looking for a beautiful and comfortable home, with strong bones dating back to an earlier era.

What we loved most about the house were its incredible views of Mother's Beach and the ocean from several rooms in the house. Because it's on the second floor views are unobstructed. The open floor plan capitalized on the views, natural light and fresh ocean breezes, but also provided for different activities among family members. We all loved the deck and grilled out as often as possible. Plenty of additional chairs accommodated impromptu gatherings with family in the area. A favorite spot inside was the sunroom with gorgeous new arched windows and tongue-and-groove wood paneling with panoramic views of the beach.

Kitchen was small but well-equipped -- everything we needed without getting too "gourmet." The house was spotless when we arrived (high priority for us and obviously the owner as well). Parking for 2 cars in back and 2 in front. No permit needed. Great to have complete access to all outsides spaces (no one lives on first floor) so it felt like "our house." Must be able to climb stairs since it is on second floor. Convenient to all points of interest in southern Maine; Kennebunkport is just minutes away. Great meal at Billy's Chowder House in Wells. Wonderful antique shop, Bulfinch, is within 1.5 miles. Great Laundromat/cleaners in lower Kennebunkport. Daily walks down Kennebunk Beach; wonderful playground on Mother’s Beach for young children. We're planning on returning next year!
