Perfect Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

We took my 86 year old mom here so she could enjoy the amazing ocean views! It was the perfect getaway and location for us! We only live 15 minutes away so I know the area and after researching our options, I knew this was the ideal location and rental. It was even better than we expected. The upstairs apartment is recently renovated. It is clean, open and beautiful. Everything you could need and more! Dana was easy to get in touch with and very helpful.

The location is perfect, and I know the area- one of the most scenic beaches and spots on the coast, with easy access to Kennebunk and miles of beautiful shoreline and entertainment. We felt like we were miles away and left totally relaxed and refreshed.

Lots of activity to view; joggers, bikers and kids playing down the road at the beachside playground but quiet and private at the same time. All the homes in the area are gorgeous with beautiful landscaping which adds to the warm, new England feel.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this home to anyone!

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!
